WB Wants To Shoot A DC Film Now For A 2018 Release
eelyajekiM   |  

WB DC films Justice League team first look

Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe got off to a rocky start. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad has given the vast majority the confidence the franchise needs to believe that it can compete with Marvel Studios. Still, early reactions to Wonder Woman have given us some assurance that there can be a decent DCEU film. James Wan is behind the lens for Aquaman. And despite some of the creative fallout, The Batman seems to be headed in the right direction now that Matt Reeves is the director.

Now there is word that Warner Bros. wants to start shooting a DC film this year. With The Batman set for a possible 2018 shoot, the rumor is that the studio has narrowed it down to five possible choices. Check out which film it could be here below.

Will Smith In Netflix's Bright

Netflix has released a teaser for their fantasy-meets-reality original movie Bright, which stars Will Smith as a cop on patrol in an alternate present-day in which humans, elves, orcs, and fairies live among each other.

David Ayer Admits He Should Have Done ‘Suicide Squad’ Differently
eelyajekiM   |  

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto

Suicide Squad may not be the most popular film amongst critics and some fans, but it was one of the top-grossing films of last year. Warner Bros. third entry of the DC Extended Universe was polarizing in more ways than one. The loyal fanbase supported the film even though critics eviscerated it for having too many plotholes and a lack of character motivation. But if there is one thing that Suicide Squad suffered from the most, it’s the fact that the marketing campaign failed to deliver its promise on giving us the Joker (Jared Leto). Sure the Clown Price of Crime was in the film, but trailers and TV spots had assured us he would be a vital plot point. Instead, he was an unnecessary factor. Even Leto voiced his displeasure saying that he shot enough footage for a Joker movie. The extended edition supports that fact.

‘Suicide Squad’ Director David Ayer & Star Margot Robbie Reunite For DC Movie ‘Gotham City Sirens’

Suicide Squad Margot Robbie

Because it worked so well the first time – and I am not being sarcastic about that – Suicide Squad director David Ayer and star Margot Robbie are reuniting for another DCEU project.

While a Harley Quinn film has been in the works since the big screen character was so well-received, the two won’t be returning for a Suicide Squad 2 – at least not yet. Instead the pair reunite for a film which will see Harley as part of yet another ensemble, but an all female one. The film is called Gotham City Sirens. Check out more on this story below.

Shia LaBeouf Almost Reunited With David Ayer For ‘Suicide Squad’

Shia LaBeouf in Fury

Say what you will about Shia LaBeouf, but the actor has had some pretty incredible roles in the past, and one of his best was in the World War II drama Fury. Directed by David Ayer, the film centered on a US tank crew that undertakes a deadly mission behind enemy lines where they are outnumbered and outgunned.

A few years after its release LaBeouf went on to do many artful projects while Ayer signed on to write and direct Suicide Squad. And somewhere in between that time, it seems that LaBeouf was offered to play a role in the film, a role that ultimately did not go to him. Find out which one below.

Book Review: Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization
Empress Eve   |  

Suicide Squad The Official Movie Novelization cover banner

Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization
Paperback | Kindle
Based on the Warner Bros. Pictures film written by David Ayer
Based on the characters from DC Comics
Written by Marv Wolfman
Publisher: Titan Books
Release Date: August 9, 2016

Suicide Squad, a Warner Bros.’ summer 2016 tentpole, was one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year, with standout stars like Will Smith and Jared Leto, fan-favorite DC Comics characters like Harley Quinn and the Joker, and the promise of a cameo from Ben Affleck’s Batman. But once Suicide Squad hit theaters in early August, it was critically panned and many fans voiced their disappointment with the new DCEU offering’s out-of-sequence storytelling, non-compelling villain, and the lack of Leto’s Joker, the latter of whom was used heavily in the marketing of the film.

Not enough Joker in the film? Yes, that’s definitely true. Joker’s presence in general as well as his twisted romantic relationship with Harley Quinn are what fans were clamoring for the most. Leto recently spoke up to say that he didn’t know his role was going to be reduced to a glorified cameo and that enough footage was captured of his character to make a full Joker movie. Having read Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization, it does appear that there was much more Joker-Harley story to tell, as well as plenty other aspects left out of the final film.

‘Suicide Squad’ Fallout: Jared Leto On Joker Cuts and Wanting R-Rating
eelyajekiM   |  

Suicide Squad star Jared Leto

Normally, a film breaking a summer box office record would be a cause for celebration. Suicide Squad earned a most impressive $135 million, proving that some films are indeed critic proof (check out my review). It really didn’t need the cast, crew, or even Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins to come to its defense. And yet, even with those massive record-breaking numbers, it seems that audiences began to catch on that there are still many problems the DCEU braintrust needs to address.

Amid the reports of heavy studio interference, Suicide Squad star Jared Leto has come out to talk about how much Joker footage was left on the cutting room floor. According to him, there was enough to make a whole movie. More on this story below.

Suicide Squad Header Image

After over a year of steadily-building pre-release hype that had even beings living on distant planets aware of its release, Suicide Squad – the latest potential blockbuster from Warner Bros.’ cinematic DC Universe headlined by some of their most notorious supervillains – is here. Early reviews have ranged from mixed at best to tear-inducing negative at worst and as a result, members of the film’s cast and crew, including writer/director David Ayer and co-star Cara Delevingne, have been put on the defensive during promotional interviews.

Suicide Squad Margot Robbie

Warner Bros.’ highly anticipated Suicide Squad is tracking for a $140 million opening this weekend, despite advanced reviews that pan the newest DCEU film for having a confusing plot, a weak villain, and sloppy editing. It shouldn’t be a surprise that there is drama surrounding a DCEU film, considering that reshoots and other issues cropped up for WB’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice as well. Slowly we are beginning to see just how discombobulated everything is over at DCEU.

Suicide Squad director David Ayer has come out to defend the product he will be giving us this weekend and has justified those studio-ordered reshoots. But now a new report is giving us a better sense of happened on set and the behind-the-scenes issues. More on the story below.
