Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor To Join 'Suicide Squad'

19 hours ago

David Ayer is hoping to include Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor in his Suicide Squad. Warner Bros. is currently in talks with the actor to bring his Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice character into the upcoming movie about DC villains.

Suicide Squad has garnered a lot of buzz lately, mainly because of the rumors that A-listers Will Smith, Ryan Gosling and Tom Hardy are in talks for roles in the film, as is The Wolf Of Wall Street's Margot Robbie.

The DC movie follows a group of supervillains who are brought together to tackle high-risk black ops missions for the government. The comic was created by Robert Kanigher and Ross Andru back in 1959. The Suicide Squad team has included countless DC villains among its ranks, including Deadshot, Captain Boomerang, Bane, Killer Frost, Poison Ivy, Count Vertigo, Deathstroke, and Harley Quinn.

Warner Bros. has yet to comment on Eisenberg's appearance in Suicide Squad. »

Exclusive Interview with Harry Shum Jr. for ‘Revenge of the Green Dragons’

24 October 2014 7:54 PM, PDT

From the producer Martin Scorsese, “Revenge of the Green Dragons” looks at the real Asian gang that terrorized the streets of New York City in the 1980s and early 1990s.

The story followed two immigrant brothers Sonny (Justin Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who survived child poverty by joining the Chinatown gang “The Green Dragons.” The brothers climbed through the ranks quickly, which drew the attention of the New York City Police Department. After an ill-fated love affair that pits Sonny against his own brother, he sets out for revenge on the very gang who made him on who is he.

Latino-Review had an exclusive telephone interview with Harry Shum Jr., who played the mysterious and merciless gang leader Paul Wong in the film. We talked about the Asian gangs, Paul Wong and switching gears in acting away from “Glee” TV shows and “Step Up” movies.

The Crow” is back from the dead.

The remake film’s producer Ed Pressman confirmed that the production will begin next year in the spring as he told The Hollywood Reporter at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival.

He believed the remake of the film will generate plenty of interest for the new generation of moviegoers. The producer even remarked it’s the “anti-Spider-Man.”

"It still has a big fan base even though it was so long ago," he said. "But the generation today doesn't even know ‘The Crow.’"

The revenge story follows Eric Draven who was brutally murdered and came back to life to avenge his and his fiancee’s murder.

Right now, actor Luke Evans is the current frontrunner to play the role which was played by the late Brandon Lee. Pressman claimed nothing about the casting is confirmed at this time.

Details of 45 Minute War Scene in 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies'

24 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT

It’ll be the mother of all battles. And it’s going to be epic.

Director Peter Jackson provided some details about the 45-minute battle climatic scene in the conclusion of “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.”

His detailed battle plan looks like a real assault, so we’ll probably have to call General Peter Jackson soon.

 Jackson told Entertainment Weekly:

“There’s a lot of logistics that have to be thought through. We have dwarves and men and elves and orcs, all with different cultures, with different weapons, and different shields and patterns and tactics.”

The director worked with his CGI team to create the armies fighting for the dwarven treasure of Erebor. So we’re talking about the goblins, dwarves, elvens, humans and yes…..the eagles.

Of course, Jackson will be mindful of an audience who are quite bored with an epic warfare scene.

Film Review: Ouija

24 October 2014 10:20 AM, PDT

You know there’s something wrong right off the bat when a movie is based on a board game. It’s just another pitiful extension of Hollywood’s obsession with making movies out of recognizable brands or toys or theme park rides. Sometimes those initially terrible ideas work out (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), and most of the time they don’t (Battleship, almost all of the Transformers movies). Inevitably what happens when they do work out is that they’re immediately put onto a franchise pedestal and the subsequent installments never reach the already low pinnacles of the original. Theorize all you want about the dollars-and-cents potential of franchises based on recognizable properties, but perhaps the best thing about the new horror movie Ouija is that it is so bad that it will thankfully—and hopefully—never turn into a multi-movie franchise.

Talking with Shailene Woodley and the cast of 'White Bird in a Blizzard'

24 October 2014 9:16 AM, PDT

A few days ago we had the chance to sit down with Shailene Woodley and the cast of White Bird in a Blizzard and talk about the project.

Kat Connors (Shailene Woodley) is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve (Eva Green) disappears, just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother's absence and certainly doesn't blame her doormat father, Brock (Christopher Meloni), for the loss. In fact it's almost a relief. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve's disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college. she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother's departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it.

White Bird in a Blizzard is in theaters October 24th »

Christian Bale Confirmed in Steve Jobs Biopic

23 October 2014 11:05 AM, PDT

No more frontrunner status. It’s official.

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin confirmed Christian Bale in the upcoming biopic about the Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

“We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale,” Sorkin told Bloomberg Television’s Emily Chang. “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.”

Of course, in his interview, he did left out Leonardo DiCaprio was the studio’s choice before Bale.

Sorkin continued:

“He has more words to say in this movie than most people have in three movies combined. There isn’t a scene or a frame that he’s not in. So it’s an extremely difficult part and he is gonna crush it.”

James Spader Talks about Villain Role in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

23 October 2014 10:29 AM, PDT

Now I’m free. There are no strings on me.

Actor James Spader is free to speak on his character Ultron in the upcoming sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” The official teaser trailer was released yesterday by Marvel after someone leaked it earlier on to the Internet. Click here to watch that trailer.

Total Film had a conversation with Spader for its upcoming issue.

As expected, he described Ultron as a new machine trying to find himself in the world.

"In many ways he's a child, this character, because he's a brand new being who's just come to be. And yet, through artificial intelligence, he has an incredible capacity for knowledge. So he's a very powerful, smart child,” he told the magazine.

In comparison to his character Red on “The Blacklist,” Ultron is much more devious and conniving.

"Ultron takes abrupt turns in scenes,” he said. "Red isn't pyschopathic but Ultron is. »

Exclusive Interview with Darryl Roberts for ‘America the Beautiful 3: The Sexualization of Our Youth’

22 October 2014 11:37 AM, PDT

There are so many sexual images that the youth are bombarded with nowadays. With all these influences, it’s drastically changing America right now.

Documentary filmmaker Darryl Roberts continued his well-known series with “America the Beautiful 3: The Sexualization of Our Youth” by looking at the problems in our young society today.

Here’s the synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old pop stars dance provocatively in sexy Catholic schoolgirl outfits on stage, twelve-year-old models lounge in revealing outfits on the pages of magazines, four-year-olds in bikinis parade in beauty pageants on national television. With a modern American culture that's overflowing with overtly sexual images of children, what is the price we're paying? 

Award-winning director Darryl Roberts explores the treacherous effects this has on not just children, but society as a whole. The assault of images portraying the perfect "sexy" body is inescapable and inappropriate, contributing to a national physical and mental health crisis. America the Beautiful »

Marvelous DA7E 68: The Next Six Years' 40 SuperMovies

22 October 2014 11:36 AM, PDT

Welcome To Issue 68!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie/TV news, rumors, and speculation. 

This Week: We're not done sighing and looking into the future this week as it becomes immediately apparent I'll be writing these weekly columns about superhero movies until I die in the zombie apocalypse, which I'll hate because Walking Dead is over-rated garbage. That plus: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. shows Marvel's only progressive win.

I guess it’s best to start at the beginning for this week, and the beginning is the long view.

You and many others have probably stumbled across the infographic created by Comics Alliance’s graphic designer Dylan Todd who consolidated the upcoming slate of superhero movies over the next few years.

Sure, all of these entries might not be as exciting as the others.
