Suicide Squad: two added to cast, rumoured roles

29 March 2015 11:18 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Scott Eastwood and Raymond Olubowale have signed up for the Suicide Squad movie. And rumours have landed as to their role...

Update: According to a new report at Latino Review, Scott Eastwood is to take on the role of Steve Trevor in the Suicide Squad movie. He has a romance with Wonder Woman at one stage in the comics, and that's already led to speculation that Eastwood's role will be building to a something more substantial in the 2017 standalone Wonder Woman movie, starring Gal Gadot.

Raymond Obulowale, meanwhile, will apparently be part of Amanda Waller's security team, as well as doing motion capture work for King Shark. None of this has been confirmed, of course.

Here's our original story:

The core cast of David Ayer's Suicide Squad has been known for some time. Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne and Viola Davis have long been on board, »

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.

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).

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.

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.

Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace And Gary Oldman Topline New Posters For Russian Thriller Child 44

26 March 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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.

With a star-studded cast that also encompasses Joel Kinnaman, Paddy Considine, Jason Clarke, »

'Suicide Squad': 'Aquaman' Connection Revealed?

26 March 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Child 44 Character Posters Feature Stars Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace

25 March 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Check out Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace in the new character posters for Child 44 before it hits theaters on April 17.

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.

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 film also features Paddy Considine, Jason Clarke, and Vincent Cassel.

Child 44 opens nationwide April 17, 2015.

25 March 2015 12:21 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Jai Courtney has promised that his Suicide Squad character Captain Boomerang will undergo an image overhaul.

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

Speaking to Access Hollywood, Courtney joked about wanting to give the character a new look for the Suicide Squad film.

"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."

'Suicide Squad': Deadshot Costume & Weapons Explained

25 March 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

Child 44 Releases Three New Posters Featuring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, and Gary Oldman

25 March 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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. »

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!

'Suicide Squad': Amanda Waller Will Be A Brutal Badass

24 March 2015 9:43 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »
