Warner Bros. is currently in full on promotion mode for their latest DC Comics movie Suicide Squad. After the critical disappointment that was Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the studio is in serious need of some positive buzz, and so far, it looks like Suicide Squad could very well do that for them. One of the main reasons for the hype leading up to the release of the movie is Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn, and we just got a look at some newly released concept art for the character in Suicide Squad.
The art was revealed to us by the DC Extended Universe Twitter account, and features two very different looks at Harley Quinn. The first look is much more simple and a bit more revealing, as she is only wearing a tank top that is tied together down the sides, with red and black writing all over it. »
Welcome to another weekend flashback. Flashback to The Brady Bunch TV show, cancelled in 1974 by ABC, after five moderately successful seasons. It was in syndicated reruns where the series really caught fire. Still, Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady) says the cast has not received any residuals from the series since around 1979. Find out why and learn more about sibling issues and Olsen's reaction to the end of the popular comedy series.The Brady Bunch TV series cast includes: Florence Henderson as Carol Brady; Ann B. Davis as Alice Nelson; Robert Reed as Mike Brady; Barry Williams as Greg Brady; Maureen McCormick as Marcia Brady; Eve Plumb as Jan Brady; Susan Olsen as Cindy Brady; Christopher Knight as Peter Brady; and Mike Lookinland as Bobby Brady. Allan Melvin guest starred as Alice's love interest, bowling butcher Sam Franklin. Robbie Rist (infamously) recurred as Cousin Oliver in the »
In one short month, the live-action big screen realization of the fan-favorite Harley Quinn, who made her debut in Batman: The Animated Series back in the 90s. It's a lot to live up to. Since her cartoon debut, Harley has become something of a pop culture icon. Her role in the Arkham games definitely gave an extra bit of exposure in the eye of the mainstream, and it's following that well known portrayal that actress Margot Robbie will be making her own debut in Suicide Squad.
There's certainly a lot the filmmakers will have to get across -- which will be especially difficult since this is an ensemble cast. Fans will want to see hints of her psychiatric origins, her unhealthy relationship with the Joker, and her dark sense of humor -- namely with the weapons she wields. Based on what we've seen in the trailer, it seems like we'll »

No DC Comics reviews for me this week as it seems Rebirth is taking a break (unless you need to go pick up those 2nd printings!-and you should!) So I will focus a little more on Marvel. Rumbles in the rumor community are suggesting Another reboot coming Marvel’s way real soon which promises to change the landscape of the Marvel Universe again! I’m guessing it will be the fallout from this terrible Civil War going on. Remember if there’s a book you want to have checked out, let me know and I will review it!

We live in a world of movie trailer mystery boxes. Current film previews can show off character, tone, a cool nostalgic soundtrack. But not what the movie is actually about. If you want to know the plot of your favorite summer blockbusters, you’re just gonna have to wait until opening weekend. A strange but effective marketing tool, based on box office returns. Which is how I went months without realizing Katana’s (Karen Fukuhara) role in Suicide Squad is not as an inmate-turned-government-mercenary. We still don’t know the how and why of how Katana joins the Squad. But when I was watching the music video of ‘Sucker for Pain’ by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa & Imagine Dragons w/ Logic & Ty Dolla $ign ft X Ambassadors from the Suicide Squad soundtrack, I never expected to see her in Arkham.

The Legend Of Tarzan Gallery 1 of 32
Click to skip
It’s easy to understand why Warner Bros. was tempted to make The Legend of Tarzan. Franchise-friendly, FX-heavy, and blockbuster-ready, it also boasts one of those illustrious brand names that everyone knows and Hollywood has yet to capitalize upon. To the studio, especially back when the project was first green-lit, in the wake of Alice in Wonderland and with the juggernaut Harry Potter franchise winding down, Tarzan must have seemed like a no-brainer, at once familiar enough to draw audiences and broad enough to allow a new team of filmmakers to provide a contemporary take on an old mythos.
And yet, times have changed. In this decade of #OscarsSoWhite and Black Lives Matter, audiences are challenging the movie industry to do better when it comes to smartly discussing race and – more prominently in the case of Tarzan – thoroughly banishing the white-savior »

While this year has already given us a slew of superhero movies, the villains will take over later this summer when Suicide Squad hits theaters. While we don't know when the next full trailer will debut, Warner Bros. has released three TV spots which feature new footage. We get never-before-seen moments featuring The Joker (Jared Leto) and even a brief glimpse of Batman (Ben Affleck). With less than three months left until Suicide Squad hits theaters, we'll have to wait and see how much more footage is released.
From director David Ayer (Fury, End of Watch) comes Suicide Squad, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, The Pursuit of Happyness), Oscar winner Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street, Focus), Joel Kinnaman (Netflix's House of Cards) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (The Help, Doubt). It feels good to be bad... Assemble a team of the world's most dangerous, incarcerated Supervillains, provide them with the most powerful arsenal at the government's disposal, and send them off on a mission to defeat an enigmatic, insuperable entity. U.S. intelligence officer Amanda Waller has determined only a secretly convened group of disparate, despicable individuals with next to nothing to lose will do. However, once they realize they weren't picked to succeed but chosen for their patent culpability when they inevitably fail, will the Suicide Squad resolve to die trying, or decide it's every man for himself?
The all-star ensemble cast for Suicide Squad includes Will Smith (Deadshot), |Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Viola Davis (Amanda Waller), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), and Jay Hernandez (El Diablo). Scott Eastwood and Ray Olubowale also appear in the movie, but their characters have not been revealed. We'll have to wait and see if their characters are confirmed between now and the release date.
Suicide Squad will be going up against The Weinstein Company's drama The Founder and EuropaCorp's comedy Nine Lives on August 5. This superhero adventure should have no trouble taking down The Founder and Nine Lives at the box office, but we'll have to wait and see. While we'll have to wait and see how this movie fares in theaters, Warner Bros. is already making plans for sequels and spinoffs.
Warner Bros. recently announced a Harley Quinn spinoff that may also feature characters like Batgirl and the Brids of Prey. Another report revealed that the studio is considering spinoffs for both The Joker and Boomerang as well, but it isn't known how far along in development any of these projects are. Another report claimed the studio wants director David Ayer to come back for Suicide Squad 2, with the studio eyeing an early 2017 shoot, although that hasn't been confirmed. Take a look at these new TV spots for Suicide Squad below. »
Most fans were pretty disappointed when the first images of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn didn't feature the doctor in her original jester outfit from Batman: The Animated Series. To be fair, Harley Quinn's style has evolved throughout the years, so it was to be expected that we would see something different in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. However, Robbie recently revealed that she had tried on various outfits as Harley Quinn, including the red and black jester outfit. Now, it looks like we might be able to see Harley Quinn in her jester outfit after all. Jada Toys have revealed their Suicide Squad themed Metals die cast figures, featuring Deadshot (Will Smith), Killer Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), and various versions of Harley Quinn and the Joker (Jared Leto). The jester outfit seen below might not be exactly like the one from the animated series, but it features the original color scheme, »
Harley Quinn has been one of the most beloved characters in comics since her introduction in Batman: The Animated Series. Now the mad doctor makes her big screen debut in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. Of course, you can't have Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) without the Joker (Jared Leto), and you can't have these two iconic characters without their controversial relationship. During a recent interview with Total Film Magazine, Margot Robbie spoke about the mad love between the doctor and her Puddin'. "She is a very cheerful, bubbly sort of person," says Robbie. "A lot of the comments were like ‘She has this unflappable sense of humor. She’s so bubbly. She loves The Joker so much.’ So I definitely didn’t want to lose that. Having said that, David’s approach is the much darker side of the story, so it’s a bit of both. Harley’s story »
Before you get too excited, Margot Robbie doesn't gleefully murder anyone in the just released viral video from Vogue that parodies American Psycho. She's saving all the gruesome bloodshed for her upcoming role in Suicide Squad as Harley Quinn. In that DC Comics adventure, she will play a psychotic murderer tasked with becoming a superhero of sorts as she joins a group of villains to pull off an almost impossible mission. The actress shows what landed her the role, as she sets herself up as a real Australian psycho in this short film from Catfish: The Movie directors Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost. Here, we get to learn about Robbie's psychotic morning make-up ritual. Vogue describes this viral spoof of Patrick Bateman as such.

DC Comics is ready to move on to other projects to expand its cinematic universe announcing the development of a Harley Quinn spin-off movie starring Margot Robbie, that will be used as a platform for other DC female heroes and villains to shine.
Even though Suicide Squad hasn't made its debut, the studios are counting on Robbie’s depiction of Harley Quinn to win fans over and make this movie a success. With Batman V Superman not being the hit Warner Bros. and DC wanted there is a lot banking on Suicide Squad. With this move, maybe DC can have a measure of success with the popularity of the Gotham City Sirens with Harley teamed with Catwoman and Poison Ivy.
Hollywood Reporter is even throwing around Birds of Prey and hear it from a nerd now, that’s not Harleen’s team yo. Anyway this is the minimal details we can provide on this project. »

The antics of Jared Leto’s method acting aside, most of the attention with regards the upcoming Suicide Squad movie has centred on the big screen debut of the character Harley Quinn. Comfortably one of the most popular modern Batman nemeses, Harley Quinn is being played by Margot Robbie in the new movie, which is due in August.
The DC Extended Universe seems to grow more interesting and immense with each passing day. It was crazy enough when they decided that their second film would be a Batman v Superman film with its eyes set towards the Justice League, but they went even further and went for a Suicide Squad flick as their third entry in the franchise.
We've had a few trailers for the villain teamup film, and while the jury is still out on whether or not the movie is any good, WB certainly seems to have some confidence in it. According to THR, they have so much confidence in it -- and Margot Robbie, the actress who is bringing Harley Quinn to life -- that they're even going so far as to develop a Harley Quinn-centric film.
The outlet states that Robbie will be reprising the role of the fan-favorite psychopath in an untitled spinoff film, »

Borys Kit must have known it’s almost my birthday, because he got me an early present when he broke the news today that Warner Bros. is developing a Harley Quinn movie for Margot Robbie. It does not surprise me that they are moving quickly to nail down an ongoing relationship with Robbie, because everything I’ve heard about Suicide Squad from people working on and around the movie is that she absolutely owns the movie. I’ve been asked about the differences between my reporting on the reshoots for the film and Devin Faraci’s reporting, and I think we’re not really reporting different things. He said he heard the reshoots were to make the film funnier, saying every joke in the original cut had already been used in the trailer. What I heard was that the additional photography was a result of Warner telling director David Ayer »

"...some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn."
Alfred Pennyworth, "The Dark Knight"
The above quote was delivered by Michael Caine, as Alfred, about The Joker in The Dark Knight. In the 2008 film, Heath Ledger's Joker was referred to as an agent of anarchy. He existed merely to throw the system into chaos and then laugh merrily as everyone else tries to pick up the pieces. His ambitions weren't grandiose. He wasn't trying to "take over the world" or anything like that. All he wanted was to push the kinds of buttons that would make everyone question what it is they think they know about the world.

With Harley Quinn set to make her big screen debut this August as part of Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad movie, actress Margot Robbie and director David Ayer have been speaking about the fan favourite DC character in an interview with Vogue.
“She doesn’t even have superpowers,” states Robbie. “She’s just a psychopath who runs around gleefully killing people—she finds joy in causing mayhem, which makes her weirdly endearing and fun to watch.”
“[Margot] is a tough girl, and she’s incredibly smart and mature beyond her years,” adds Ayer. “She has ridiculous depth, and she’s never been coddled, so she’s very physically courageous. The things she was doing herself as far as stunts, you wouldn’t believe. There’s only a handful of actors who do that sort of work themselves.”

One of the most exciting things about David Ayer's Suicide Squad is getting to finally see Harley Quinn in live-action. Played by The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie, all the signs are pointing to the actress stealing the show. Whether or not she will remains to be seen, but the Aussie actress certainly does so in this cover shoot for Vogue Magazine (via Batman-News). Below is an excerpt from their article in which Robbie explains how and why she ended up tattooing the members of Task Force X. As a wrap gift after Tarzan, Sophia—her best friend/housemate/business partner—bought her a tattoo gun on eBay, and soon, between scenes while shooting Suicide Squad, says Robbie, “people would come into my trailer: ‘Hey, Margs—can I get a tattoo?’ ‘Sure—sit on down!’ ” She even gave Delevingne something she dubbed “toemojis”—five emoji faces »
After the release of two well-received trailers, many believe Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn will steal the show when Suicide Squad is released this summer. But while it falls under the DC Comics brand, the actress warns that her character is not really a superhero. She's a damaged woman who likes to participate in a little bloodshed. Basically, Harley is not a nice girl. Taking with Vogue, Robbie had this to say about her big screen alter ego.
"She doesn't even have superpowers. She's just a psychopath who runs around gleefully killing people-she finds joy in causing mayhem, which makes her weirdly endearing and fun to watch."
When it came time to cast Harley Quinn, director David Ayer didn't hold auditions. He knew who he wanted right away. He simply sent Margot Robbie the script, which he wrote himself, and told her the part was hers for the taking. Of course she said yes, »
When the very first Suicide Squad trailer hit, fans were quick to call out Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn as their favorite. And many believe she will steal the show from other such heavy hitters as Will Smith's Deadshot, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's Killer Croc and Jared Leto as The Joker. Someone who agrees with this assessment is Margot Robbie herself, who has no qualms about calling out her Harley Quinn as the best in this bunch of super villains. She had this to say about slipping into the insane mindset of the Maiden of Mischief.
"I thought that I had the best character in the movie. I wouldn't trade my character in Suicide Squad for anyone else's."
The character of Harley Quinn has had a place in many fans' hearts ever since she was first introduced in Batman: The Animated Series back in the 1990s. Not only was she a great, humanizing aspect to the Joker, but her rich and nuanced back story was somewhat tragic and deeply affecting.
She's always been a fan favorite, but with the recent Arkham games, her popularity certainly seemed to skyrocket. With her increased sex appeal, and more realistic take, she was a character that was poised to make it big in a film.

In a way, this seemed to be the perfect character for her. In Wolf Of Wall Street, she was "really glammed-up," and she had »
