David Ayer’s Suicide Squad is barrelling down on its August 5 theatrical release – and we couldn’t be more excited.

All throughout Warner Bros.’ barnstorming marketing campaign, fans have become acquainted with the eclectic, bat-shit insane members of Task Force X, choosing their favorites as they go. And without question, Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn has cemented her place as a firm fan-favorite.

Beyond Quinn, David Ayer’s assembly of baddies also features Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Jay Hernandez as El Diablo and Adam Beach as Slipknot. Scott Eastwood and, potentially, Ezra Miller’s Flash also have roles in the movie.

But to celebrate the imminent arrival of Suicide Squad, We Got This Covered is »

Geoff Johns Becomes President of DC Entertainment

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice failed to live up to expectations from fans, critics and the top brass at Warner Bros., the studio has been shifting things around quite a bit. One of the major moves that was made was promoting comic book writer turned producer Geoff Johns to Chief Creative Officer, who was put in charge of overseeing DC Films. It looks like there was a little more to that promotion than we initially thought, as a new report claims that he has also added President to that title.

A new report from Comicbook.com has confirmed the report, which originally surfaced over the weekend during San Diego Comic-Con. According to the report, this title does not replace his title as Chief Creative Officer, but is an additional title to go along with it. Johns' new official title is Chief Creative Officer & President, and he will »

It's Official: Geoff Johns Is Running The Dceu!

5 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

At last week's San Diego Comic-Con, fans and press noted a distinct change in tone from DC's offerings. Everything that was shown from Justice League and Wonder Woman felt far more colorful, wondrous, and- at times- more humorous than either of the Dceu films we've seen so far. There was a lightness and a playfulness that seemed to signal the Snyder Era was over. 

For those of us in the know, this was no surprise and it didn't happen by accident.

Two months ago, the big story making the rounds was that Geoff Johns and Jon Berg had moved up the Warner Bros/DC Films ladder and were now in charge of the DC Extended Universe. This was all part of the fallout from Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, which was so maligned by critics, caused such a negative stir among fans, and had underperformed at the box office »

‘Suicide Squad’ Director Shoots Down Joker Fan Theory

5 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Suicide Squad” director David Ayer just poured cold water on a fan theory about Jared Leto‘s Joker that has been making the rounds online since the first trailer dropped. Many have speculated that the Joker is actually an adult Jason Todd, better known as Robin –Batman’s sidekick. There were several clues to back this one up. In “Batman v Superman,” we see a Robin suit riddled with bullet holes, which some say lined up with bullet wounds on the Joker’s body as seen in the “Suicide Squad” trailer. In the same scene where we see the Robin suit, »

Capping off its Suicide Squad showcase at San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. has rolled out a further two clips for David Ayer’s flick that shift focus to Karen Fukuhara’s deadly assassin.

Hailing from the same media dump that offered up new looks at Deadshot and Harley Quinn – cornerstones of Task Force X that will be brought to life by Will Smith and the so-hot-right-now Margot Robbie, respectively – the snippets below are only 30 seconds in length. Then again, if you’ve kept pace with Suicide Squad‘s all-consuming marketing pizazz from the off, that ought to be more than enough footage to sate your appetite before the big day.

That big day is, of course, August 5, when David Ayer’s posse of freaks and geeks will march onto the silver screen. Alongside »

HBO cancels Project Greenlight

15 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Nick Harley Jul 27, 2016

HBO has decided to not move forward with the Ben Affleck/Matt Damon produced docuseries, Project Greenlight.

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck may be having blockbuster success on the big screen, but on television, they’ve just been cancelled. HBO has decided to pull the plug on their filmmaking docuseries Project Greenlight.

The docuseries was part competition, part behind the scenes, warts and all look at filmmaking, where a promising young director gets the chance to direct their first major feature. The winner of the preliminary search must juggle a budget, production schedule, and shoot while handling movie making politics, and ultimately must deliver a polished film under budget and on time.  

HBO issued the following statement regarding the cancelation of Project Greenlight:

“When we picked up a new season in 2014, we imagined a one season revival and decided in early 2016 another season did not make sense for us. »

HBO Cancels ‘Project Greenlight’

20 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO will not be moving forward with a fifth season of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s docuseries “Project Greenlight.”

“When we picked up a new season in 2014, we imagined a one season revival and decided in early 2016 another season did not make sense for us,” said HBO in a statement. “We are proud of the show and were pleased with its run throughout the years.”

The fourth season of “Project Greenlight,” which fell to 1.3 million viewers, was surrounded by a fair bit of conflict, namely between producer Effie Brown and project director Jason Mann, but also between Brown and Damon.

Damon broke the news in an interview with the Associated Press, saying “I’m not one to question [their programming]. They do such a great job. But we have to take it out again.” He said he would shop the show around to other outlets, particularly a streaming service.

Brie Larson Thanks Captain Marvel Fans for Their Support

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in early June, reports surfaced that Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson had entered early talks to play Carol Danvers in Marvel Studios' highly-anticipated Captain Marvel. Just a few months earlier, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased that both the star and director of that project would be announced sometime this summer, with most expecting the reveal to be made at Comic-Con. Sure enough, Marvel Studios ended their panel on Saturday night by bringing out Brie Larson as the new Carol Danvers, which fans have been behind from the beginning. Earlier today, the actress sent out a heartfelt note expressing her thanks for all the support.

The news that Brie Larson has come aboard to play Carol Danvers resulted in a thunderous ovation from the Hall H crowd, as the recent Oscar winner joined the assembled Marvel Studios actors and filmmakers on stage for one star-studded selfie. The actress took »

Captain Marvel Star Brie Larson Reaches Out To Fans To Thank Them For Their Support

20 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s rare these days for any comic book movie casting decision not to be picked apart by comic book fans who have their own very specific ideas about how their favourite characters should be portrayed on the big screen, and everyone from Idris Elba to Ben Affleck and Michael B. Jordan have come under fire in recent years (only to quickly prove the haters wrong).

It’s somewhat surprising then that the reaction to Brie Larson being announced as Captain Marvel has been so overwhelmingly positive. Considering the fact that she’s an amazing actress, perhaps we shouldn’t be all that shocked (especially as Larson won an Oscar just a few months ago), but it’s still nice to see a lack of the normal hashtags which have dominated social media in the past. After all, who can forget #BetterBatmanThanAffleck on Twitter, only for the actor to later »

Looks like Batman may not be the only Justice League member in Suicide Squad

23 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Potential spoilers for Suicide Squad follow…

We know that The Dark Knight is set to feature in Warner Bros.’ next DC Films offering Suicide Squad, but Batman may not be the only Justice League member set to make his second appearance on the big screen this year.

Having appeared briefly in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it looks like Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen may also feature in Suicide Squad, with Comic Book noting the following shot from the trailer, featuring Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang:

The lightning bolts seen in the shot are very similar to those surrounding Ezra Miller’s Flash in the Justice League trailer, which arrived online this past weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con…

Given that Boomerang is one of the Flash’s Rogues, it would make sense for Barry Allen to make an appearance, particularly if we get any kind of backstory on the villain. »

The Joker/Jason Todd Rumor Is Dead: Suicide Squad Director David Ayer Ends Speculation

26 July 2016 12:09 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Sorry, superfans, but the “Joker is Jason Todd” rumor can finally be put to rest.

While Batman v Superman may not have been everyone’s cup of tea, there is little denying how interesting the mythology in the DC Extended Universe is, as it is has become a hotbed of rumors . We are living in a world where Batman has fought crime for decades, and clashed with the Joker more times than anyone can count. There was even some pretty damning evidence that pointed to the Joker killing Robin, which already has been analyzed to death (that evidence is shown in the photo above).

Somewhere along the way, however, there was speculation that the Joker didn’t actually kill Jason Todd, but that he was Jason Todd, and the armor with the spray paint on it was meant to taunt the Caped Crusader. While general logic would seem to imply »

David Ayer Shoots Down Those "Jason Todd Is The Joker" Rumors

26 July 2016 10:37 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

"Twenty years in Gotham, how many good guy are left, how many stayed that way." That line from Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne in Batman v Superman drove fans crazy with trying to figure out who died and who turned to the dark side. One theory that absolutely would not die no matter how preposterous it seemed was the notion that Jason Todd went insane following an attack from the Joker, killed him and then decided to carry on his legacy.  Sure, the Dceu is it's own thing but its doubtful that Ayer and DC Films co-chair Geoff Johns would subvert the legacy of A Death in the Family to such a degree.  It's very likely that it is Todd's costume, riddled with bullet holes in the Batcave but that likely means he represent the "how many are left" portion of Affleck's line, not the segment implying that one of the good guys was corrupted. »

Jared Leto Is Dressed To Kill In All-New Bts Suicide Squad Snap

26 July 2016 10:28 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

More so than his turn in Requiem for a Dream and even the Oscar-winning performance found in Dallas Buyers Club, moviegoers have really taken to Jared Leto’s portrayal of the Joker.

Of course, much of that comes down to Leto’s bizarre method acting, which stole headlines throughout the early stages of production, coupled with the sheer status of the Clown Prince of Crime as a DC icon. But now, less than two weeks out from release, excitement for Suicide Squad is fast approaching tipping point.

After appearing at San Diego Comic-Con along with Task Force X, Jared Leto took to Instagram (via Cbm) to post a rather unnerving shot of him dressed to kill as the Joker.
