Margot Robbie Likens David Ayer’s Suicide Squad To The Dark Knight

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

If there was ever an in-development project that could be sold on cast alone, it’s David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Having assembled Will Smith, Jared LetoCara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman — in lieu of Tom Hardy — and Margot Robbie, there’s no doubting the film’s star power, and during a recent interview with MTV, the latter actress talked about the movie’s innate tone.

Granted, Ayer’s superhero flick is yet to enter production, and while the director has teased a reveal for later today, there’s still an awful lot we don’t know about Warner Bros.’ villain-centric tale. However, according to Robbie, the tone that the studio is aiming for is akin to that found in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.

“I think on a scale of like, ‘The Dark Knight’ is here and ‘The Avengers’ is here, I think it’s more on the ‘Dark Knight’ side of things. »

'Suicide Squad' Compared to 'Dark Knight', Momoa's Excitement for 'Justice League' & a Majestic Joker

6 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't tell what we should expect from the forthcoming DC Comics films at Warner Bros. and it seems the hardcore fans are just as curious and questioning as WB has made no secret about the fact the plan is to go all out, but they've made those plans without a ton of success so far. Of course, they enjoyed success with Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight franchise, but Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, which is really the first installment in the DC cinematic multiverse wasn't exactly the classic I think the studio was hoping for. Yet, Snyder is back and about to bring us Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and after that we're getting Suicide Squad as DC has decided not to go the Marvel route by sticking with the most familiar names in DC's stable. That is, outside of the addition of The Joker, which »

Margot Robbie Says 'Suicide Squad' Is More 'The Dark Knight' Than 'Avengers'; David Ayer Says Joker Is "Majestic"

7 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A frame has yet to be shot from "Suicide Squad," not to mention that the film due before it, the superhero packed "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice," is still awaiting its first teaser trailer. There is plenty of curiosity about both movies, which will mark very significant steps in establishing DC Comics on the big screen, as they attempt to get into the same sandbox as their rivals at Marvel. However, they are sticking with a playbook established by Christopher Nolan's Batman movies for the tone of their efforts. “I think on a scale of like, 'The Dark Knight' is here and 'The Avengers' is here, I think it’s more on the 'Dark Knight' side of things,” the actress teased to MTV. And like anyone signing up for a franchise these days, Robbie is in for the long haul. “You don’t need to have commitment issues »

What Suicide Squad Will Borrow From The Dark Knight

27 February 2015 7:01 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

No jokes. It was a mandate we had heard about the developing DC Cinematic Universe, and it.s one that flies in stark contrast (get it?) to the lighter movies of Marvel. Yet, David Ayer.s Suicide Squad is going to have a Joker (in Jared Leto), and the maniacal Harley Quinn (in Margot Robbie). It has to be humorous. Right? Maybe not. Knowing that it.s very early in the process, Margot Robbie spoke with MTV about the upcoming super-villain movie, and what fans can expect. She was asked specifically about the tone of the material, as that can go a long way toward preparing an audience for the end result. Specifically, Robbie was asked if Suicide Squad would resemble Christopher Nolan.s somber, serious Batman trilogy, or Joss Whedon.s The Avengers. She explained that Squad likely will borrow its tone from Nolan, saying: I think on a »

Blade Runner Sequel Director Announced, Harrison Ford’s Return Confirmed

26 February 2015 7:08 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After all these years, the story of Rick Deckard will continue. A Blade Runner sequel started to pick up steam back in 2011 when it was announced that Ridley Scott would return to direct. While Scott is still creatively involved, it has been revealed that he'll be passing the torch to another director. What is still a big surprise, even after his involvement in the latest Star Wars film, is that Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as Deckard:

Press Release via /Film: "Los Angeles, CA, February 26, 2015 — Harrison Ford will reprise his celebrated role of Rick Deckard in the sequel to Alcon Entertainment’s Blade Runner and Academy Award nominee Denis Villeneuve to (Prisoners, Incendies) is in negotiations to direct, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-ceo’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.

Blade Runner Sequel Confirmed, Harrison Ford To Return

26 February 2015 6:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that at long last, the Blade Runner sequel has been confirmed, with Harrison Ford set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard. Unfortunately, Ridley Scott will not return as director, but in his place will be Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve.

The plan is for production to get underway in summer 2016 with Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original) and Michael Green penning the script. Plot details are, of course, scarce, but from what we understand the sequel will take place several decades after the events of the original (which makes sense given Ford’s age).

“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on Prisoners,” Alcon Entertainment’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said. “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most »

Margot Robbie Compares 'Suicide Squad' to 'Dark Knight'

26 February 2015 4:59 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Focus will be in theaters this Friday, which means our wealth of Suicide Squad quotes will soon run dry as Margot Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn, and Will Smith, the man who promises to give us the greatest Deadshot in the history of comic books, leave their press tour behind to actually start filming. But we still have one more day, which means one more piece of insightful information, offering a tease of what director David Ayer has in store for this DC Comics super villain adventure.

Speaking with MTV, Margot Robbie was asked where Suicide Squad falls in the spectrum of superhero movies. Will it be dark, serious and somber like Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight? Or will it be colorful and fun like Marvel's The Avengers? This being a DC Comics movie, her answer shouldn't surprise you:

Jessica Chastain Joins The Huntsman

25 February 2015 5:15 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal is quickly assembling a stellar cast for The Huntsman, its upcoming attempt to turn 2012’s box office smash Snow White & the Huntsman into a franchise property. Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain has closed a deal to star opposite Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron in the film, which takes place before Kristen Stewart’s Snow White ever entered the picture.

Emily Blunt is also primed to join The Huntsman, which tells the story of how the title character (Hemsworth) first crossed paths with Ravenna (Theron). Details beyond that are vague, but Blunt is rumored to be playing the Snow Queen, Ravenna’s powerful sister who zeroes in on the Huntsman in hopes of getting revenge after he comes searching for a stolen magic mirror. No word on the specifics of Chastain’s role just yet.

Cedric Nicolas-Troyan, a VFX specialist who was Oscar-nominated for his work on the first film, will helm, »

Has 'The Huntsman' made Jessica Chastain the Queen of Comic-Con 2015?

24 February 2015 3:34 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Is there any actress who appears as though she's having the time of her life than Jessica Chastain?  The two-time Academy Award nominee has joined Amy Adams as the next great American actress ready to be coronated for her body of work, but clearly isn't relegating herself to prestige fare.  Today, Deadline reported that Chastain is joining Chris Hemsworth, Emily Blunt and Charlize Theron in "The Huntsman," and, quite honestly, the news made us smile. "The Huntsman" has a lot of red flags surrounding it including the fact original helmer and screenwriter Frank Darabont departed over the dreaded "creative differences" excuse and first-time director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (Visual Effects nominee for "Snow White and the Huntsman") was brought on to replace him.  The Universal Studios flick is supposedly a prequel to the aforementioned "Snow White," but it's all slightly confusing.  In hindsight, it was probably a mistake to develop it without »

Watch: Here's That Dark and Gritty 'Power Rangers' Movie You Never Knew You Always Wanted

24 February 2015 1:04 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

For years now there's been this hunger from fans to watch "dark and gritty" movies starring characters they grew up with. The success of Bryan Singer's X-Men movies and then Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy helped fuel Hollywood's desire to bring more of these kinds of stories to the big screen, and now they're everywhere. From The Avengers to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to The Fantastic Four, we now live in the age of "The Dark and Gritty Reboot." Producer Adi Shanker (The Grey, Dredd) teamed with filmmaker Joseph Kahn (Torque, Detention) on what they're calling a "bootleg fan film" that sort of deconstructs not just the dark and gritty reboot, but also the ways in which fans love to devour this type of content...

New Batman V Superman Score Details Revealed By Hans Zimmer,New Clip

24 February 2015 12:55 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Recently, MTV News caught up to Hans Zimmer at the big 2015 Oscar Awards the other night. He's been hired to score the new "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" super hero/action flick, and revealed that he will not actually be scoring the Batman parts to avoid betraying the work he did with Christopher Nolan's Batman. He's getting his friend, Junkie Xl, to score the Batman parts, so they will have a bit of a different tone to them. Then , of course, Hans will work on scoring the other parts of the film involving Superman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and more. Check it out, below. Batman v Superma stars: Henry Cavill as Superman/Clark Kent and Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Diane Lane as Ma Kent, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Ray Fisher as Cyborg ,and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman/Diana Prince, »

24 February 2015 10:02 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in November, we reported that composer Hans Zimmer will team up with Junkie Xl to provide the score for Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated DC Comics adaptation Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. With post-production currently under way, MTV caught up with Hans Zimmer on the Oscars red carpet, where he revealed that he hasn't quite begun work on the score yet. He also talked about providing the individual themes for incoming heroes such as Jason Momoa's Aquaman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. Here's what he had to say, revealing that he already has a couple of ideas in mind for the entire Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice soundtrack:

"I have one day off and you guys have to go right to the unwritten score. No, I've got an idea. I've got a couple of ideas."

Zimmer, Robbie On "Batman" Music, Quinn

24 February 2015 9:01 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Having worked on both Chris Nolan's "The Dark Knight" trilogy and Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel," composer Hans Zimmer is understandably returning for Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" which brings together Henry Cavill's Superman with a new take on Batman played by Ben Affleck.

With various films and shows involving multiple heroes and villains, one trick often used is to give each of the characters an individual theme to help differentiate them. Speaking at the Oscars on Sunday, Zimmer was asked by MTV if that was the plan:

"I’m trying, I’ll put it that way. We’re in early days. But yes, of course, ideally that’s what you want to do...I’ve got a couple of ideas."

Zimmer admits proper work has not yet begun on the film's score, which he is collaborating with Junkie Xl on. He was, however, »

9 Awesome Deleted Scenes From The Dark Knight Trilogy

24 February 2015 7:02 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Brothers

The Dark Knight Trilogy is one of the most critically acclaimed and financially successful movie series of all time. By merging modern world issues with classic Batman lore, writer and director Christopher Nolan played a key part in ushering in the current age of superhero movies.

People love these movies, and so naturally many are constantly on the prowl for new snippets of intriguing facts detailing their production. However, Nolan is known for being a particularly secretive director who, similar to a magician, likes to keep details of filmmaking a mystery. He is not especially fond of commentaries and, yes, deleted scenes. In fact, since he usually doesn’t start filming before he is completely satisfied with a script, not much is actually deleted from his films. And since he considers his theatrical cuts to be his director’s cuts, don’t expect to see what little deleted »

Michael Keaton: his 10 greatest screen characters

24 February 2015 6:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Batman to Birdman and everything in between, we take a look at Michael Keaton's top 10 most memorable roles...

Sometimes, the Oscars have a tendency of giving out awards to actors who are seen to have paid their dues, perhaps not for the best performance of that year or even for the particular actor's own best performance, but to recognise past work. Michael Keaton is not the most likely of these, but this could be why some speculated that he was an early favourite for this year's Best Actor award, for his performance in Birdman.

The later frontrunner Eddie Redmayne rightfully and very graciously wound up taking it home for his work as Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything, though Birdman went on to take home the main prize for Best Picture and a number of other major awards.

It would hardly have been a major upset if »

Late last year we heard that (surprise) Hans Zimmer would be scoring Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, but Zimmer announced that he would be bringing along Junkie Xl for the ride. Why? Well, why not?
