Ben Affleck shares footage of Deathstroke

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Justice League continues filming, Batman actor Ben Affleck just shared some very intriguing footage which may or may not be from the film on Facebook. The footage is taken from his cell phone from a monitor and shows the deadly mercenary Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke, slowly approaching the camera.

This footage certainly raises some questions about the film, not just if Deathstroke really is in the movie but who might be playing him as well. If Deathstroke is in Justice League, this would not be the first time he’s appeared in mainstream media. Deathstroke was a recurring character in Arrow, portrayed by Spartacus actor Manu Bennett, and was a featured boss in Batman: Arkham Origins. Check back here for more details on Deathstroke’s possible role in Justice League.

Update: In one of the most conveniently timed “scoops” in the history of the internet, El Mayimbe is »

Suicide Squad End Credits and VFX Reel Have a Better Look at Easter Eggs

27 August 2016 4:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though the horror thriller Don't Breathe will probably knock it out of the top spot at he box office coming into its fourth weekend of release, Suicide Squad is still being considered a blockbuster hit. The movie has racked up an impressive $600 million worldwide. Though, it certainly wasn't treated well by the critics. If there was one thing everyone seemed to enjoy, it was the colorful end credits scene. That has now been released online for everyone to enjoy over again without having to sit through the movie a second time.

Buddha Jones, the VFX company behind the end credits, released the video on Vimeo. They also have a cool VFX reel that offers fans a better look at some of the awesome Easter eggs discovered in this DC Films super villain adventure. They show off the very cool character introductions and that fan-favorite dance.

David Ayer thanks fans as Suicide Squad hits $600 million worldwide

26 August 2016 2:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite being mauled by critics, Warner Bros.Suicide Squad has proven to be a solid hit at the box office, with director David Ayer taking to Twitter to thank the fans for helping the movie hit the $600 million mark worldwide…

@SuicideSquadWB 600 million worldwide! Thank you to everyone for making this a success! @WarnerBrosEnt

David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) August 26, 2016

Ayer may have jumped the gun slightly, as Box Office Mojo only has the film grossing $582 million by close of play on Wednesday. Nevertheless, it looks likely that the DC supervillain team-up will cross $600 million globally this weekend, although it is expected to fall from top spot at the U.S. box office after three weeks at number one.

Suicide Squad tops domestic box office for third consecutive weekend

21 August 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suicide Squad has continued its impressive run at the North American box office, topping the chart for the third consecutive weekend – a feat that neither Man of Steel nor Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice managed to accomplish.

Suicide Squad is expected to pull in around $20.7 million domestically over the Friday-Sunday period, having brushed aside competition from Ben-Hur, which tanked in its opening weekend.

The DC supervillain ensemble has earned $262.2 million in the States, and its worldwide haul now sits at $572.6 million. That puts it ahead of 20th Century Fox’s X-Men: Apocalypse, which earned $542.7 million earlier this year, and it has one major market left to open in, Japan, where it debuts on September 10th.

Suicide Squad crosses the half billion mark at the global box office

18 August 2016 3:27 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may not have impressed critics, but Warner Bros.Suicide Squad is certainly proving to be a big hit with audiences; the film smashed the August domestic opening record, and has now surpassed the half billion dollar mark at the box office, with the DC supervillain team-up hitting $509 million around the globe in just 13 days.

“It is incredibly rewarding to see audiences around the world coming out in such a big way for Suicide Squad,” states Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, president of worldwide distribution. “We have several major markets yet to open, and expect to continue seeing strong returns at the box office for the weeks to come.”

“We’re thrilled with the huge numbers on Suicide Squad, and to be coming out of an already highly successful summer with such a big win for our slate,” adds Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and distribution. “The film is in position »

Suicide Squad suffers big drop but fends off Sausage Party to stay top of the box office

14 August 2016 12:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After smashing the August box office opening record last weekend, Warner Bros.Suicide Squad managed to fend off competition from the adult animated comedy Sausage Party to hold on to top spot domestically, but much like the previous instalment of the DC Extended Universe, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it suffered a rather steep drop.

The David Ayer-directed supervillain team-up grossed $47.7 million – down 67.3% from last weekend – while Sausage Party followed in second place with $33.6 million. Suicide Squad is now up to $222.8 million on home soil, and has grossed a solid $465.3 million worldwide so far after just twelve days.

Will Suicide Squad have enough legs to reach the reported $750 – $800 million mark that it is said to require to turn a profit for Warner Bros.? Or will the lack of a release in China cost it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

Jared Leto says The Joker and Superman would be interesting to see on screen together

13 August 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the release of Suicide Squad, Jared Leto took a moment out from complaining about how many of his scenes ended up on the cutting room floor to say that he’d like to see his Joker going up against Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight in the Batman solo movie, and now he’s told IGN that it would be interesting to see the Clown Prince of Crime sharing the screen with the Man of Steel.

Superman seems like a lot of fun though for the Joker,” said Leto. “The Joker and Superman would be interesting to see on screen because Superman’s so stoic and morally-centred. I think that the Joker would really enjoy that. Superman is just the classic hero, and The Joker opposite any classic hero would be really interesting.”

Movie Review – Suicide Squad (2016)

12 August 2016 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suicide Squad, 2016.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach, Jim Parrack, Ben Affleck, Karen Fukuhara, Common, Ike Barinholtz and Scott Eastwood.

Synopsis:

Following the death of Superman, Us government operative Amanda Waller assembles ‘Taskforce X’, a meta-human combat unit made up of the worst criminals they have locked up, who swiftly become known as the ‘suicide squad’ as they face a planet destroying threat…

 

Aside from Ghostbusters, Suicide Squad could well be the most talked about summer blockbuster of the year, and with good reason. The third entry into the formative DC Cinematic Universe, David Ayer’s film had some major expectations in the wake of the polarising Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, a film which should have been a rousing, beloved modern superhero film yet was denounced by many, including myself, »

The Scooperhero News is back! Unfortunately, though, Oli and Luke bring bad news: the movie that was meant to save the DC Expanded Universe, Suicide Squad, is falling apart.

With reports that there were two separate cuts of the movie – one from director David Ayer and the other from the studio – Jared Leto unhappy with how many of his Joker scenes are cut and more, 2016 really hasn’t been Warner Bros. year…

Suicide Squad crosses $300 million worldwide

12 August 2016 2:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite getting a bit of drumming by the critics (our own Oli Davis went nuts about on the Flickering Myth Podcast), Suicide Squad is pulling in money around the world.

After a record breaking opening weekend, Suicide Squad has retained a lot of its audience and has now crossed $300 million worldwide. Its still a way off from the $750-$800 million it needs (and will struggle to get there without a Chinese release), but its a promising sign ahead of its second weekend.

Suicide Squad director David Ayer explains The Joker’s grill and ‘Damaged’ tattoo

10 August 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Empire, Suicide Squad director David Ayer has addressed one of the most controversial aspects of the DC supervillain team-up – The Joker’s tattoos and grill – explaining how they came about.

“This is sort of my personal thing and maybe less about a larger connection,” said Ayer. “But Joker killed Robin and Batman basically smashes his teeth out and locks him up in Arkham Asylum. It’s in the asylum where Joker would have done the ‘damaged’ tattoo as a message to Batman saying, ‘You’ve damaged me. I was so beautiful before and now you’ve destroyed my face.’ That’s where the grill comes from.”

Hats off to the Joker – if that’s a self-inflicted prison tattoo, he’s got some really impressive penmanship.

Jared Leto says there are enough deleted scenes from Suicide Squad for a Joker movie

9 August 2016 2:29 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jared Leto seems to have spent the majority of the press tour for Suicide Squad bemoaning the amount of his scenes as the Joker which ended up on the cutting room floor, and he’s been at it again during an interview with the BBC, stating that there’s enough for an entire Joker movie.

“I think that I brought so much to the table in every scene, it was probably more about filtering all of the insanity. Because I wanted to give a lot of options, and I think there’s probably enough footage in this film for a Joker movie… If I were to die tomorrow, maybe the studio would roll something out. Rated R or rated X performance in there somewhere.”

Leto also spoke about a possible return as the Clown Prince of Crime, adding that: »

Movie Review – Suicide Squad (2016)

9 August 2016 7:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Suicide Squad, 2016.

Directed by David Ayer.

Starring Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Cara Delevingne, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jay Hernandez, Adam Beach, Jim Parrack, Ben Affleck, Karen Fukuhara, Common, Ike Barinholtz and Scott Eastwood.

Synopsis:

A group of highly dangerous super-villains are forced to carry out secret missions for the government.

(Spoilers!)

For over a year now we’ve been drip-fed pictures, information and rumours about DC’s latest (anti)superhero film. The trailers and posters teased and prepared us for a funny, twisted and anarchic film, which is exactly what writer/director David Ayer (End of Watch, Fury) has delivered. However, despite a record-breaking opening in America, the film has received incredibly mixed reviews, much like DC’s last film Batman v Superman. While it does share a couple of the same problems, it has what that film was sorely lacking – an enormous sense of fun. »

With Suicide Squad being critically panned, could Warner Bros. insist on further reshoots to both Wonder Woman and Justice League? Oli and Luke argue that the Dceu won’t be able to shake the studio’s interference until the newly created production house DC Films, headed by comic book mastermind Geoff Johns, is fully out of Warner Bros’ grasp.

Rumoured list of deleted scenes from Suicide Squad

7 August 2016 12:02 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In the lead up to the release of Suicide Squad this past week, details emerged about two competing cuts of the movie, while Jared Leto revealed that many of his scenes as The Joker ended up on the cutting room floor.

Unlike Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which received an extended version for its home entertainment release, director David Ayer has stated that the theatrical version of Suicide Squad is the cut of the movie, and so it’s likely we’ll have to hope that many of the deleted scenes end up as a bonus feature on the Blu-ray and DVD release.

However, we may now have some idea of what was removed from the film, with a user on Reddit posting an alleged list of all the deleted scenes:

“In early cuts, the movie’s opening detailed June Moon’s possession by Enchantress in real time. Reshoots »
