Warning: This story contains spoilers from “House of Cards,” season five.
Since the dawn of Netflix’s “House of Cards,” the wardrobe of Claire Underwood (Robin Wright, Emmy nominated for the fifth time for the role) has spoken volumes about her character. Never more so than in season five (dumped on the internet for binge viewing on May 30), which sees Claire shatter the ultimate glass ceiling, break the fourth wall and get blood on her hands — while wearing an oxblood-hued dress, of course. With the help of costume designer Kemal Harris, we decode Claire’s killer, color-steeped style.
When Claire convenes a meeting with a group of female senators in the Roosevelt Room, she’s sporting an uncharacteristically feminine blouse. “Whenever Claire wears pastels, it’s to fake-show people ‘I’m really nice. You can trust me,’” says Harris of the Co blouse she pairs with tweed trousers. She »

Thanks to cinematographer Roman Vasyanov, we’ve got a new look at Jared Leto’s Joker from a deleted scene in last year’s DC Extended Universe blockbuster Suicide Squad, which presumably takes place towards the end of the movie after he’s been shot down in the helicopter; check it out here, via Batman-News…

In Warner Bros.’ search for a director to replace David Ayer on Suicide Squad 2, a frontrunner has finally emerged. According to Deadline, Orphan and The Shallows helmer Jaume Collet-Serra is currently the studio’s first choice to take the reins on the upcoming comic book movie sequel.
The studio did, in fact, meet with Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge), who landed on a list for the gig back in February, but Gibson decided to move on after a production delay. The report also claims that several other filmmakers were considered as well, presumably some of the other names on the aforementioned list, including Ruben Fleischer, Daniel Espinosa and Jonathan Levine.
Nothing is official as of yet, but if talks continue and a deal is reached, Collet-Serra will be the latest in a long line of commercially successful directors to become attached to Dceu projects. From James Wan (The Conjuring) to »

Just a few months after rumors of Mel Gibson directing Suicide Squad 2 surfaced, it seems the studio has set their sights on another filmmaker. Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed Unknown and Run All Night for Warner Bros., is reportedly the studio's top choice to take the helm on this sequel. Warner Bros. reportedly looked at a number of directors, including Mel Gibson, for this coveted directorial gig, but sources claim the studio is focused on putting Jaume Collet-Serra in the director's chair for this superhero sequel.
Deadline broke the news of Jaume Collet-Serra's potential involvement today, which comes just four months after the studio locked in a new Suicide Squad 2 writer, with Adam Cozad (The Legend of Tarzan) coming aboard to write the screenplay. Original Suicide Squad director David Ayer revealed last summer, just days after the first movie hit theaters, that he was already working on the story for the sequel. »

Gotham’s very own maid of mischief is stepping out (of prison) with style, and every inch of her exudes attitude. Standing 19” tall, Harley Quinn is decked out in her Suicide Squad outfit, which features a bright red and blue color scheme with her dip-dyed matching hair from the film. Her traditionally clownish makeup is replaced with vibrant eye shadow and striking red lips, keeping with her updated theme.
Harley’s now-iconic “Daddy’s Lil Monster” shirt and shorts are sculpted onto the figure, and she wears a matching fabric jacket and fabric tights. »

Anybody notice how jacked Joel Kinnaman is this year on “House of Cards”? You may have missed this in all the narrative insanity of the new season, but it doesn’t change the fact that Kinnaman’s character Will Conway is at least twice the size from since last we saw him. In Season 4 of the Netflix hit, Republican presidential candidate Conway was out on the stump tweeting happily as the Underwoods (Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright) plotted his demise in the race for the White House. Come Season 5, he’s practically bursting out of his Brooks Brothers suits. Also »

We pay a return visit to last year's Suicide Squad, to see how the passage of time and a rewatch has affected the experience...

Batman V Superman should've been simple. A lean, 100-minute exploration of how two of the biggest heroes in comics could wind up in a pitched battle against each other - and which of them might win.
Yet while we found things to like in Zack Snyder's superhero movie - Ben Affleck's weathered Bruce Wayne, Jeremy Irons' tech-savvy Alfred - it also felt overwhelmingly like an exercise in over-egging the pudding. Like a game of Jenga, Batman V Superman's narrative piled plot thread on top of plot thread (introductions for The Flash, »
A new report compiled by Forbes suggests Warner Bros. has no plans to announce firm release dates for any of its future DC movies – Aquaman notwithstanding – until gauging the performance of Justice League in November.
Those allegations were buried in a piece about Wonder Woman, its success, and why scheduling issues will likely prevent director Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot from re-teaming anytime soon. Don’t worry, both are still contracted for the next chapter in the story of Diana Prince, but with Jenkins attached to develop a TV series – not to mention Gadot’s commitment to Justice League – it’ll be some time yet before moviegoers catch a glimpse of a Wonder Woman solo movie that takes place in modern-day America.
Toss in the development woes that have plagued The Flash solo movie and, as things stand, the only other DC film that has a release date to call »

With The Batman pushed back from its planned 2018 release date to 2019, it’s been reported that Warner Bros. could be looking to fast track one of its DC Extended Universe movies to accompany Aquaman on next year’s release schedule.
Among the rumoured contenders was Suicide Squad 2, but it seems we can scratch the supervillain sequel from the list of possibilities, as star Joel Kinnaman has revealed to THR that filming is likely to get underway in 2018.
“As far as I know they’re writing the script and I think the plan is to shoot it sometime in 2018, but that could change,” said Kinnaman, who plays the Rick Flag, the leader of Task Force X. “I think I’ll definitely come back for it.”

This weekend, Wonder Woman has helped breathe new life in to the Dceu, the expanded cinematic superhero universe created by Warner Bros and DC Comics after a less-than-spectacular start last year. Through its global opening, the Patty Jenkins-directed film grossed over $223million worldwide and is set to top the weekend again come Sunday.
It’s a great result for both the studios given the reactions, both critically and from audiences, to their two previous efforts, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. Both were hits in terms of box office ($872.7million and $745.6million respectively) but there’s some work to do to realign the franchise in the eyes on the fans. WB are still pressing ahead with their films, including Justice League, Aquaman and Batgirl amongst others but one that seems to also be on the radar is a Suicide Squad sequel.

It’s a testament to “Better Call Saul” that the category might be dominated by its supporting players. While Jonathan Banks has scored nominations two years in a row, Giancarlo Esposito is added to the mix this year for reprising the character of Gus Fring, last seen on “Breaking Bad.” That performance earned him an Emmy nod and there’s no reason to think bringing the character to the spin-off won’t bode well. Michael McKean has shockingly never been nominated for an Emmy, and this year he delivered a phenomenal performance in the episode “Off Brand” when his character took the witness stand. “Westworld” also has a powerhouse trio in Ed Harris, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright, all of whom could find themselves in the line-up. Also boasting dual possibilities is “The Crown,” which saw five-time Emmy winner John Lithgow channel Winston Churchill and Jared Harris as King George VI. They »

Superhero movie fans are riding a Wonder Woman high right now, but it’s slightly difficult to sustain that excitement when we stop and think about what’s coming next from the DC Extended Universe. Sure, James Wan’s Aquaman could end up being really cool, but Justice League is the next Dceu film to hit theaters, and that one has […]

Last August, Warner Bros./DC's antihero team-up Suicide Squad brought a crazy cast of characters together to participate in some supervillainous shenanigans under the direction of David Ayer. Since the franchise within the Dceu franchise has some major names attached to it, fans have been asking about the inevitable follow-up since the moment they walked out of the theaters last summer. Now, star Joel Kinnaman has revealed the planned start date for Suicide Squad 2 in order for the film to make a 2019 release date. In a chat with THR for his turn in Netflix's … »

The fifth season of House Of Cards has just hit Netflix worldwide and one of the stars of the show, Joel Kinnaman, has been out and about on the press tour answering questions on the new series of the hit political drama. As well as that, he’s also fielded questions on the state of the next Suicide Squad movie, which has been on the cards since the first one came out nearly a year ago.
Speaking to The Live Feed, Kinnaman updated us with regards to the state of Suicide Squad 2, and when he hopes to start filming it. Here’s what he had to say:
“As far as I know they’re writing the script and I think the plan is to shoot it sometime in 2018, but that could change. I think I’ll definitely come back for it.”

Rick Flag will be back on duty for Suicide Squad 2, with filming expected to kick off next year.
It might not have been the planet’s finest film, but last year’s Suicide Squad was a very lucrative one. It grossed just shy of $750m at the global box office, and did good business on home formats too. Unsurprisingly, Warner Bros quickly started moving ahead with Suicide Squad 2.
The film’s writer and director, David Ayer, is moving on to spin-off film Gotham City Sirens, the movie that brings Harley Quinn together with a bunch of female DC universe villains. And that means that Suicide Squad 2 is still hunting for a director.
Joel Kinnaman Says Suicide Squad 2 May Start Shooting Next Year House of Cards star Joel Kinnaman offers an update about Warner Bros.‘ plans for the planned DC sequel Suicide Squad 2. Kinnaman, of course, appeared in the original film as Rick Flagg, so it is understandable that he would be close [...]
