We already knew that Ben Affleck had been spotted on the set of David Ayer's currently filming Suicide Squad, but new pictures from the set have landed, showing that the Batmobile is also there, chasing down the Joker! Come inside to check out some new images.
Suicide Squad isn't exactly a closed set from the looks of things. Almost daily, new images from the set have been landing, giving us clear and solid looks at the characters (including Jared Leto's Joker and his vehicle). While we haven't been posting many of those images, I figured you guys would be interested in these new ones.
Over the last couple days, apparently, several people spotted the new Batmobile (from which we've seen images of relating to Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice) rolling around on the set, and participating in a car chase with none other than the Joker. There's been some videos, »

You definitely don’t want to miss a thing in the newest episode of “Honest Trailers,” which contends that Michael Bay‘s 1998 hit “Armageddon” is essentially “the movie equivalent of Taco Bell.” “It looks Ok on the surface, but for the love of God, don’t think too hard about what’s inside,” the narrator says. The new episode of the popular ScreenJunkies web series tackles the constant ticking-clock references, plethora of explosions, and “asteroids that look like they were designed by Tim Burton.” See photos: Ben Affleck Is Batman: 16 Actors Who Played the Dark Knight Before Him The »

A few months back, Ben Affleck was seen on the Toronto set of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, and while the details of his cameo were secret, everyone expected Batfleck would be coming face to face with Jared Leto’s Joker at some point during the movie, while rumours suggest that Batman appears in video footage. Well, we’re no closer to finding out Affleck’s role in Ayer’s super villain team up, but new behind the scenes footage, via Cbm, have revealed that the Caped Crusader is bringing some of his toys along with him, with scenes shot showing the new beefed up Batmobile in pursuit of a sports car driven by the Clown Prince of Crime himself, with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn riding shotgun.

It would seem there's just as much interest in comic book movies that didn't happen, as the ones that have. Last year the excellent "Jodorowsky's Dune" dropped, this year we've already received “The Death of ‘Superman Lives’: What Happened?” about Tim Burton's failed attempt to bring the Man Of Steel to the big screen, and now, perhaps the granddaddy of aborted superhero flicks is getting the documentary treatment. Director Ryan Unicomb is putting together "Miller's Justice League Mortal," which as the title suggest, will profile George Miller's scrapped "Justice League Mortal." On paper it was certainly promising, with the script bringing together the comic book storylines from “Jla: Tower of Babel,” “Superman: Sacrifice” and “Crisis on Infinite Earth” #8 with a cast that would've seen Armie Hammer as Batman, D.J. Cotrona as Superman, Adam Brody as The Flash and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. But the budget »

Unicomb said that he has drawn inspiration for Miller's Justice League Mortal from Jon Schnepp's The Death of Superman Lives, which focused on Tim Burton's aborted Superman film, and 2013 documentary Jodorowsky's Dune.
Speaking to Inside Film, Unicomb said: "We wanted to get the story out there to help us gauge interest.
"I have always been fascinated with the project, which would be in the same vein as Jodorowsky's Dune and this year's The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?."
Warner Bros confirmed that »
The project made it as far as pre-production, with a a cast that was set to include Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) as Batman, D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Superman, Megan Gale (Stealth) as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody (The O.C.) as Barry Allen, Anton Yelchin (Hearts in Atlantis) as Wally West, Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max) as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera (Heroes) as Aquaman and Common (American Gangster) as Green Lantern, before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug on the superhero ensemble.
Well, it looks like filmmakers Ryan Unicomb, Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell are set to delve into behind-the-scenes story of the aborted film, with the trio planning a new documentary entitled Miller’s Justice League Mortal, »

When Warner Bros. pulled the plug in 2008 on Justice League Mortal, which George Miller wanted to shoot in Australia, the local industry lost a production that would have employed hundreds of crew and supporting actors.
Director Ryan Unicomb and producers Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell believe there is a fascinating story in the aborted superhero adventure, which they aim to chronicle in a feature-length documentary.
Announced today, the doc has the working title Miller.s Justice League Mortal. It will seek to give an unbiased account of the project.s development, preproduction and cancellation, as well as the impact on the Australian film industry.
The producers have enlisted film writer/author Maria Lewis to help develop the doc. The plan is to interview some of the cast and crew who would have worked on the film and gain access to never-before-seen artwork and costumes.

At Vulture, we love comic books. We think that they matter, that they’re fun, and that they deserve our attention and not just our snark (though some of that’s cool, too). But the proliferation of big brooding men in masks, what some call the Frank Miller Effect, has become tiresome; that self-serious Batman v. Superman trailer probably needs to speak with a therapist, it’s so melancholy. And yet, the notion that super heroes have only become mean and dark in recent years, that Superman has traditionally been a nice, smiling savior, is erroneous. Truth is they’ve always been kinda mean.Over at The Atlantic, Charles Moss has penned an excellent essay that vivisects Superman’s morally ambiguous origins. As with Bob Kane’s Batman, who began life as a guy in a mask who threw thugs off of rooftops and hanged people by the neck from his Batplane, »

2012: the year the movie universe sparked, Universal struggled, and young adult adaptations really took off...
The big blockbusters of summer 2011 were the ones that followed fairly straightforward rules. The majority of them were sequels in linear movie franchises - Harry Potter, Transformers, Pirates Of The Caribbean, Fast & Furious - and it felt for the most part like a template was being followed.
Sure, there were surprises. Bridesmaids broke through and proved to be a massive R-rated hit. X-Men: First Class, meanwhile, came through unscathed - and in fine shape - from its reboot, whilst Jj Abrams took us temporarily back to the 1980s with Super 8. But other than that, the pattern was set: the big, pre-ordained films took the lion's share of the cash, and regular sequels were the order of the day.
The signs of change were there in 2011, of course. Thor was a bigger hit than most were expecting, »
Suicide Squad is scheduled for release on August 5, 2016.
What we've seen so far
The movie has attracted a lot of attention as images of the Suicide Squad's members in costume began to roll out.
Leto showed off his new muscles, which everyone seemed to be fine with.
What fans have been less keen on is the photo of his tattooed and be-grilled Joker.
Despite suggestions that this was a concept that wouldn't show up in the film itself, shots from the set have dashed these hopes to pieces. »
Here's your first look at the new Clown Prince of Crime in action.

Suicide Squad: Everything you need to know about Warner Bros' villainous team
Photos and videos captured from the film's Vancouver set by DC Cinematic Universe show Leto's DC supervillain speeding up to Robbie in a sports car before striking her across the face.
The scene in question appears to be a flashback sequence with Robbie portraying psychiatrist Dr Harleen Quinzel and demanding the Joker gets out of the car.

'Saint Joan': Constance Cummings as the George Bernard Shaw heroine Constance Cummings on stage: George Bernard Shaw, William Shakespeare and Benn W. Levy (See previous post: "Constance Cummings: Actress Went from Harold Lloyd to Eugene O'Neill.") In the mid-1930s, Constance Cummings landed the title roles in two of husband Benn W. Levy's stage adaptations: Levy and Hubert Griffith's Young Madame Conti (1936), from Bruno Frank's original, which was presented on both sides of the Atlantic. (On Broadway, the play had a brief run in spring 1937 at the Music Box Theatre.) The Theatre Guild-produced Madame Bovary (1937), from the Gustave Flaubert novel, staged in late fall at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre. Referring to the London production of Young Madame Conti, The Sunday Times critic James Agate wrote that the American actress had made "a roaring success out of what in other hands might so easily have been an inarticulate, »

Villains are everything to a story, and especially in the comic book medium, a hero is only as good as the villains that they thwart. Batman has the most recognizable, most iconic, and overall best rogue’s gallery in all of comics. From classics such as Two-Face, Catwoman, and the Riddler to relative newcomers like Bane, The Court of Owls, and Hush, all of these villains, and are strongly ingrained in comic book lore to a degree unmatched by other comic book villains. There are some heroes like Superman, Shazam, and the Hulk who have such a shallow crop of villains to draw from that it works against a creator’s ability to tell quality stories. Batman doesn’t have this problem; in fact, one of the greatest comic book villains calls the Dark Knight his archenemy.

The Joker and Harley Quinn have often had a love/hate, hard-to-pinpoint relationship in the comics. Sure, they seem to be obsessed with one another, but are either of these two actually capable of love? Their relationship status seems to be in a difficult state in this photo, taken as Jared Leto and Margot Robbie film scenes in character for David Ayer.s Suicide Squad. Take a look: Leto's Joker and Robbie's Harley - awesome rendition of the duo :) #Joker #HarleyQuinn #SuicideSquad #WB #DC #gotham #gothamcity #davidayer #thejoker #JaredLeto #MargotRobbie #WillSmith #Batman #30secondstomars #echelon #echelonfamily A photo posted by Jonathan Encarnacion (@jonencar) on May 18, 2015 at 12:33am Pdt That.s some gun Harley (Margot Robbie) is wielding in the Instagram post shared by jonencar. And does she have to point it right at Mister J.s head? Normally the Clown Prince would laugh off such a threat, but Jared Leto »
Another day, another round of set photos from David Ayer’s Suicide Squad. Early reports about the movie claimed that Jared Leto’s Joker would serve as a ‘Hannibal Lecter-style’ role where he would be in prison for the whole movie, but these new set photos see the Clown Prince of Crime out and about – and in the classic purple suit!
Check out the photos and video below:

Beginning life as The Joker’s marginally less psychopathic girlfriend/side-kick, at this point Harley Quinn might even been verging on a similar level of popularity to the Clown Prince Of Crime: her solo comic book series is a huge seller for DC, she’s reached new of fans thanks to her appearances in the Arkham series of Batman video games, and she’s got a starring role in the upcoming Suicide Squad film, played by Margot Robbie.
Before The Wolf Of Wall Street got her teeth into her, Harley Quinn was just the simple, if somewhat troubled, psychiatrist Dr Harleen Quinzel (how did she not know she was destined for supervillainy with a name like that?). It remains to be seen if Suicide Squad follows the same pattern, but almost every version of Harley’s origin up until now has her assigned to be The Joker’s therapist, »

Take another look @ leaked images from the Orion Oaks County Park, Michigan set of director Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice" including the cemetary grave of a beloved character from the 'Batman' Universe:
The tombstone at one grave plot, is inscripted 'Richard John Grayson' aka 'Dick Grayson' aka 'Robin The Boy Wonder' and ward of 'Bruce Wayne', aka 'Batman'
"...'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' stars Henry Cavill in the role of 'Clark Kent'/'Superman', Ben Affleck as 'Bruce Wayne'/Batman', Gal Gadot as 'Diana Prince'/'Wonder Woman', with Amy Adams as 'Lois Lane', Laurence Fishburne as 'Perry White', Diane Lane as 'Ma Kent', returning from 'Man of Steel'...

Presumably The Joker and Mr. Freeze will appear as young versions of themselves, in the show’s now firmly-established format. The likes of The Penguin, Catwoman and The Riddler are all up and running, so it was only a matter of time before these big bads were ushered in.
Whoever is cast as Batman’s ultimate nemesis faces some stiff competition from Jared Leto, who’ll take the grown up version of the role in upcoming Suicide Squad. The latter option has less to worry about – last time we saw Freeze he was lumbering about as Arnold Schwarzenegger in Joel Schumacher’s critically-mauled Batman & Robin movie.

Tim Burton, Joel Schumacher, Christopher Nolan, and Zack Snyder have all done what most superhero junkies could only dream of doing: direct a Batman movie. But there was one other filmmaker privileged enough to have suited up the masked manhunter for cinema, achieving almost overnight success in 2003 and a cult classic amongst Batman fans—without the “superpowers” of a million dollar budget or the tyranny of studio executives. The director: Sandy Collora. The film: Batman: Dead End.
“Behind The Mask”, a 90-minute documentary on the life and career of Sandy Collora, was shown recently at Monsterpalooza in Burbank, CA, telling the story of the indie filmmaker’s refusal to “sell out” to major studios and finding satisfaction in directing his own films.
