No love triangle in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice

14 December 2014 2:20 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

DC's New 52 comics introduced a lot of new elements to the DC Universe, one of those being the affair between Superman and Wonder Woman. Since DC's cinematic Universe is apparently drawing some inspiration from the current comics (producer Charles Roven seemingly confirmed that they're using the New 52's origin for Wonder Woman), many fans were wondering whether or not we'll be seeing the love triangle on screen. Well, according to Amy Adams, who's returning as Lois Lane after playing the character in Man of Steel, we won't be seeing that - at least not in this film. “It’s exciting to get to bring in all these other characters and I was really excited that Gal (Gadot) was involved, because it was a nice to have another girl on set, even if we don’t work together a lot, it was nice to have her there", she told Coming Soon. »

Just minutes ago, Warner Bros. announced the main cast members for Suicide Squad. However, there is still one major role still left to be cast, the squad's leader and the villain of the movie, Amanda Waller. Variety reports that Oprah Winfrey is the studio's top choice for the role, with other contenders including Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer.

In the comic books, Amanda Waller was a government agent who oversees the Task Force X (Suicide Squad) program, which assigns practically impossible missions to this group of dangerous villains. Amanda Waller was previously portrayed on the big screen by Angela Bassett in Warner Bros.' 2011 adventure Green Lantern, and she was also played by Cynthia Addai-Robinson on the small screen in Season 2 of Arrow. The character has also been featured in a number of animated projects, with Cch Pounder most recently voicing Amanda Waller in this summer's Batman: Assault on Arkham. »

Suicide Squad Cast Announced; Jared Leto Is 'The Joker' And Will Smith Is 'Deadshot'

2 December 2014 1:59 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The cast of Suicide Squad has finally been revealed, and there are definitely some major surprises.

Instead, that role goes to Australian actor Jai Courtney, someone fans argued was a much better choice for that character since his name first came up.

This has all been Confirmed by the studio, so no more speculation. David Ayer is writing and directing, while Charles Roven and Richard Suckle will produce.

Will 'Batman v Superman' Set Up the 'Suicide Squad' Movie?

2 December 2014 12:03 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice continues production under the direction of Zack Snyder, new plot details have surfaced, hinting that this highly-anticipated feature may create a direct link to Suicide Squad. A report from Badass Digest reveals that The Joker already exists in the world of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Superman (Henry Cavill) is aware of him. Jared Leto is in final talks to play The Joker in Suicide Squad, but the character is likely to be referenced by name alone in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

There have been reports that Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg, will also be appearing in Suicide Squad. It's possible that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (March 25, 2016) will help set up the events seen in Suicide Squad (August 5, 2016), since they're being released to bookend the year for Warner Bros. and DC.

It's definite: Breaking Bad's Michelle MacLaren will be directing the standalone Wonder Woman movie...

Warner Bros has chosen who it wants to direct its upcoming standalone Wonder Woman film, and - as had been speculated - it's Michelle MacLaren who's got the job.

MacLaren is best known to date for some of her excellent work on the TV show Breaking Bad, a programme that she also served as an executive producer on. She's also directed for shows such as The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones in recent years. Wonder Woman will mark her feature directing debut.

That gives her some time to work with the project's writers, »

Art by JPRart

Last week we learned that Michelle MacLaren was in talks to direct Wonder Woman for Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment. Today it has been made official! The deal is done, and I think she's a great choice! If you're not familiar with MacLaren's work, she has worked on high profile shows such as Breaking Bad, The X-Files, The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones

Gal Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman, who will first be introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. There are no confirmed details on what the first Wonder Woman movie will be about, but there have been rumors that it will be set in the 1920s and be the first in a trilogy of standalone films. The report does say that the director's "deal culminates an on-and-off again dance with the Amazonian princess." So she will indeed be back to direct multiple films. »
