Director David Ayer has been putting his Twitter account to good use lately, releasing a number of photos from the Suicide Squad set as he gets ready to start production next month in Toronto. Today, the filmmaker shared yet another image, which teases the infamous Arkham Aslyum. Unfortunately, it only shows us some of the records being kept at this iconic DC Comics facility, as opposed to any of the inmates' cells, but it does at least confirm that Arkham will be a part of the story. There will be potential Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
While we don't have any confirmed story details at this time, it has been rumored that Suicide Squad opens at Arkham Aslyum, where Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) is trying to break out The Joker (Margot Robbie). Unfortunately, her plans get in the way of Deadshot (Will Smith) and his mission to kill an incoming inmate, »

There literally hasn't been a day that's gone by this week without new details surfacing from the highly-anticipated Suicide Squad, so why should that change today? Latino Review's El Mayimbe has revealed new tidbits about Jai Courtney's Boomerang. While nothing is set in stone yet, it seems that director David Ayer is contemplating a number of different looks for the character, which are all "hard-rock influenced." Take a look at what El Mayimbe has to say below.
"#Suicidesquad #skwad #Captainboomerang tidbit. So here is what I know about Jai Courtney's character. Boomerang is very rock n roll & they're experimenting with a series of looks for him.

Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa proved he had an eye for the thriller genre with 2012’s Safe House, and now the director has a meaty subject matter on his lap with the upcoming adaptation, Child 44.
Based on Tom Rob Smith’s eponymous novel, the story centers around Soviet Russia circa 1953, a time when the Cold War was beginning to spread its tentacles and corruption was rife. Playing the part of Leo Demidov is Mad Max: Fury Road star Tom Hardy, a secret police agent who soon finds himself in political hot war after he refuses to denounce his wife, Rasia (Noomi Rapace).
Thereafter, the pair find themselves exiled from the country and crossing paths with Gary Oldman’s General Mikhail Nesterov, who together must uncover the government conspiracy surrounding a number of child murders in the country.

Though Suicide Squad is not necessarily tied directly into Justice League, we know that it is part of DC and Warner Bros.' expansive cinematic universe. So, many believe that this third film in their planned series will somehow connect to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. While it has been widely rumored that both Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor will make appearances at some point, Latino Review is back with yet another rumor that claims the movie will also tease a connection to Aquaman. It seems that Amanda Waller, who brings this group of super villains together for an impossible mission, has had her own run in with the legendary Atlantis superhero.
In a recent interview, Viola Davis called her Amanda Waller a brutal badass. That may be true if this latest tidbit proves to be accurate. According to El Mayimbe, Waller is »
A politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia, Child 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov )Gary Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys.
Child 44 opens nationwide April 17, 2015.

The DC Comics villain's costume has generally been blue in colour and covered with boomerangs, although some modern iterations have been more streamlined.

"There's some pictures out there that make him look like an airline stewardess," he said, adding: "I can assure you, that whatever you saw, won't be what I'm wearing."
Australian actor Courtney also declared that he is pleased to be playing a character from his native country.
"Captain Boomerang, he's an Aussie, which is good," he said. "It will be refreshing. It will be nice to speak in my natural tongue for a change."
He added: "We start shooting in a month. »
There have been a number of rumors floating around regarding Warner Bros' DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, which starts production next month in Toronto. We have heard plenty of unconfirmed details about Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) and The Joker (Jared Leto) thus far, but one character we haven't heard too much about is Will Smith's Deadshot. The casting took several people by surprise last year, partially because Deadshot's face is mostly covered by an elaborate mask with a red target eye in the comics, and most stars of his caliber have their face shown on screen at all times. Today, Latino Review's El Mayimbe has a new report which reveals details about Deadshot's costume, which will include the iconic mask. Take a look at what he had to say below.
"#Suicidesquad #Scoop per your request about #Deadshot! He has the traditional face mask with the target eye although changed to show his lower face. »
Lionsgate has released three new Child 44 posters. Based on the novel by Tom Rob Smith, the film takes place in 1953 Soviet Russia and stars Tom Hardy as Leo Demidov, a secret police agent who is exiled to a provincial outpost when he refuses to denounce his wife, Rasia (Noomi Rapace). While working at the outpost, he and Raisa team up with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman), and must investigate a string of child murderers that are being covered up by the government. I’m not sure why this movie is flying so low under the radar. It’s got a great premise, the trailer looks solid, and it’s got an excellent cast. While I wasn’t a fan of director Daniel Espinosa’s previous movie, Safe House, I’ve got some hope for Child 44, and maybe it will be a nice bit of counterprogramming as we charge into blockbuster season. »

Summit has released a trio of noirish, character posters for the upcoming thriller Child 44 starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace adapted from the novel by Tom Rob Smith. Set in 1953 Soviet Russia, the movie chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Rapace), as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up enforced by Leo's psychopathic rival Vasil (Joel Kinnaman), who insists "There is no crime in Paradise." The movie hits theaters on April 17, check out the posters below. sb id="1399843" height="272" width="640" »

According to Latino-Review's @umbertogonzalez, the description below is what we should expect from David Ayer's take on Deadshot in Suicide Squad. Those of you worrying that the character would lose his mask and eye piece in order to keep Will Smith's face on screen needn't worry as the villain will still have a version of both! The cast of Suicide Squad also includes Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, and Joel Kinnaman. It's set to be released on August 5th, 2016. Rt! #Suicidesquad #Scoop per your request about #Deadshot! He has the traditional face mask with the target eye although changed to show his lower face. Dark red coloring with black. A molded bullet proof vest & he has guns on his wrists although he has a sniper rifle in most of his pieces. I think this hot #fanmade #art by razzann on devianart is pretty close to »
There certainly hasn't been any shortage of Suicide Squad news and updates as production begins to heat up. Director David Ayer will start shooting his DC Comics adaptation in a few short weeks, and we already have a pretty good idea of what to expect, as its large ensemble cast continues to talk about the movie in various interviews. While we've heard Viola Davis chime in about her excitement for the adventure before, she is now offering more insight into just how bad her villain Amanda Waller really is. Speaking with Cbr, she explains exactly why she wanted to take on the role. It was simple:
"That she's Amanda Waller! That she's badass. She's unapologetic. Everything that I'm reading and studying about her: unapologetic, no humor, just brutal. That's me!"
Viola Davis was speaking from the red carpet at the annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles. She continued to »
Appearing at the annual GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles this week, Davis was asked what was the main draw of the role for her, to which she excitedly responded: "That she's Amanda Waller!. That she's badass." Elaborating further with Cbr, she says it's Waller's ruthlessness that offers so much appeal:
"She's unapologetic. Everything that I'm reading and studying about her: unapologetic, no humor, just brutal. That's me!... Listen, she gets to use a gun, it's my fantasy. Now, I would never do that in life, but when I get a gun on a set, it does something to me."
In the comics, Waller heads up the government program that employs incarcerated super-villains on secret and potentially deadly missions. »

He flirted with the Assassin's Creed movie for a while, but Daniel Espinosa's desire to move off real-world thrillers and into something with a bit of a sci-fi tinge has ultimately led him in a different direction. He's in talks to direct Warner Bros.' top secret Morningstar project, from a screenplay by David Birke (13 Sins).Espinosa previously made the international hit Snabba Cash, followed by his mainstream debut Safe House, with Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington. Most recently he's been at work on Child 44, based on Tom Rob Smith's novel and sporting the pitch-hitting cast of Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace and Vincent Cassel. Ridley Scott is among the producers.In short, his is becoming an increasingly safe pair of hands where real-world thrillers are concerned, so something fantastical that calls for "world building" is a surprising tangent. While nothing is known about Morningstar's story, »
With just a few weeks left until director David Ayer starts production on Suicide Squad next month in Toronto, even more details are surfacing regarding Margot Robbie's beloved character Harley Quinn. Ever since the character first debuted in Batman: The Animated Series, which lead to her cross over into the DC Comics, Harley Quinn has had several different looks throughout the years, and, according to Latino Review's El Mayimbe, fans will get to see a number of these costumes throughout the movie. Here's what El Mayimbe had to say on his Instagram page earlier today.
"#Suicidesquad Pls Rt! All about Margot Robbie's #Harleyquinn! Got a lot of requests about her so here is what I'm told. Harley Quinn has a few looks throughout the film. Going from traditional with the animated series as a reference to prison attire & in one sequence where they infiltrate a club she swears a dress. »

When exactly did we decide Liam Neeson is the new paragon of action movies? I’m not even sure I can name the second biggest star in action movies right now in terms of output or cultural cachet. If someone anywhere in the world right now is making a joke about a hypothetical action movie I bet it stars Neeson. Run All Night is Neeson’s second collaboration with director Jaume Collet-Serra after last year’s Non-Stop, which was widely derided as “Taken on a plane”. They’re back this time hopefully not in an attempt to prove their incredible creative range as Run All Night is essentially Taken but if the child was a boy instead of a girl; it is not a lot of fun.
It has been suggested to me recently that the reason I don’t connect well with the Taken films is because they’re primarily aimed at women. »

Latino Review’s Suicide Squad rumors just keep coming. Following the three potential bombshells that scoop guru El Mayimbe dropped last week regarding the roles of Deathstroke, Joker and Batman in David Ayer’s hotly-anticipated adaptation, he’s now reporting that Watchmen alum Jackie Earl Haley might be joining the Squad as well.
At this time, Mayimbe admits that this is nothing more than a rumor, but he has supposedly heard that Haley’s name is being tossed around for the role of a Flash villain known as The Thinker. In the comics, the Thinker is a genius inventor by the name of Clifford DeVoe, who harnesses the powers of telekinesis and mind control thanks to a metal “Thinking Cap.” He was a member of both the Justice Society and the Suicide Squad, and has been through several iterations throughout the years.
This is casting that I can 100% get behind. »

With production starting in Toronto next month on Warner Bros.' DC Comics adaptation Suicide Squad, it seems there are still more characters left to be cast. Latino Review's El Mayimbe reveals that Jackie Earle Haley is being considered to play The Thinker. Of course, this has yet to be confirmed by Warner Bros. and DC Comics at this time, and this is the first time we've heard this character even mentioned as being a part of the adaptation.
What remains unclear is which version of The Thinker will be used in Suicide Squad, if this rumor turns out to be true. It seems likely that the original character, Clifford De Voe, will be the one shown in the movie. Clifford De Voe was a failed lawyer who developed a thinking cap that could project mental force, which allowed him to become "the brains" behind the operations of several different villains. »
Run All Night, 2015.
Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra.
Mobster and hit man Jimmy Conlon has one night to figure out where his loyalties lie: with his estranged son, Mike, whose life is in danger, or his longtime best friend, mob boss Shawn Maguire, who wants Mike to pay for the death of his own son.
When Liam Neeson first purposefully told those pesky bad guys in Taken that he’d find them, and then kill them, few (even Neeson himself) would have envisioned his career taking such a dramatic shift into becoming an action star. Even whilst the likes of Stallone and Schwarzenegger found themselves having a brief renaissance thanks to The Expendables franchise, the interest in them soon waned, whilst Neeson has remained fairly bankable.
The Taken franchise has made a fortune, »
