Director David Ayer is the type of artist who likes to share his work process with fans, as he quite frequently tweeted out behind the scenes images from his last film Fury. He's starting to do the same with Suicide Squad, offering up yet another look at his workspace today, which gives us a few more hints about this upcoming DC Comics adaptation as it quickly moves towards its shooting date.
It was previously rumored that Suicide Squad would be working under the production title Bravo 14. A prep schedule issued on January 28, just this past week, confirms this to be true. Sitting on top of these work papers is the first volume of The New 52 Suicide Comic. This has surely influenced David Ayer as he continues to write the screenplay, but it's unclear by just how much.
Imitation is the sincerest form of television, and the biggest hits will be imitated over and over and over again — sometime well after they've gone off the air. "House" was one of the defining hits of the last decade on Fox, and it inspired clones in various traditional TV fields, with lawyers (James Woods in "Shark"), and even other doctors (Stanley Tucci in "3 Lbs") playing the part of the misanthropic, sarcastic rule-breaker who's too good at the job to fire. Fox's "Bones" has never exactly been a "House" clone — Temperance insults people not because she's a jerk, but because (it's implied) she has Asperger's — but it debuted in the wake of "House" and was tagged early on as "House, FBI." Now, though, longtime "Bones" showrunner Hart Hanson has a new series — "Backstrom," which debuts tonight at 9 on Fox — that's impossible to view as anything but "House, P.D.," even though »

David Ayer's Suicide Squad movie is set to begin filming a little later this year, and while we have a cast in place (minus Tom Hardy who just left), very little is known about the film's plot...until now. A new report has come in detailing the story and how the Joker fits into it all. Come inside to check it out.
Suicide Squad has a cast and we know who they're all playing, except for Rick Flagg since Hardy has left the role, but what we really have no clue about is the film's plot. The Suicide Squad comic has had many iterations, and there's no telling which story they're going to go with. Now the scoopers at Latino-Review have some details on the story, and of interest to many fans, what exactly Jared Leto's Joker is going to be up to.
Be warned, however, as below »

Last week, Warner Bros.' Suicide Squad was dealt a major blow when star Tom Hardy backed away from playing Rick Flagg. Jake Gyllenhaal is reportedly being eyed to replace him. While that has yet to be confirmed, another report claims that Tom Hardy left the project because his character is featured far less in the latest draft of the script. Today, Latino Review has plot details from this most recent script, which, if true, could very well be the reason why Tom Hardy backed out. Although these details have yet to be confirmed, there will be some massive Spoilers that follow, so read on at your own risk.
In the newest version of the script, Rick Flagg is described as a "watchdog" who is overseeing Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) and her operation. Waller is said to be "tracking down and capturing every super-powered hero and villain". While it is »
David Ayer's Suicide Squad is an extremely important movie for Warner Bros. and DC. It will be the first major DC Comic film after Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and WB has already proven that they're willing to go after big name talent for these movies in order to keep audience interest high. They already have Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, and Jai Courtney on board. Tom Hardy dropped out of the film last week (reportedly due to concerns over the script), and Jake Gyllenhaal is currently in talks to replace him as Rick Flag.
Our friends at Latino Review have plot details for what will happen in the movie, so if you're looking to stay spoiler-free, definitely turn back now. For those who are adventurous enough to continue, here's the deal: Lr has two separate sources on this, and it appears that they have »

The folks over at Latino Review are at it again. After offering up a scintillating teaser relating to your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man last week — which Sony moved to denounce rather quickly — the outlet has switched gears to focus on DC’s upcoming line-up and, specifically, its villain-centric Suicide Squad movie.
According to this new report, the outlet has allegedly gained access to two early drafts of the film that essentially surmise the plot from the bottom up. It goes without saying that each iteration, while unverified at this time, delves into spoilers unabated, so we advise against reading on if you want to remain fresh for when the film eventually makes its bow.
Still with us? Good. Latino Review’s first source posits that the opening of the Suicide Squad will revolve around Deadshot (Will Smith) and Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) crossing paths in Arkham Asylum; in fact, just as »

Much of the Warner Bros future DC Comics movie slate relies on next year's Suicide Squad introducing the world of villains and anti-heroes to a cinematic universe that will already include a proto-Justice League.
After a strong initial casting announcement, bringing Will Smith on as Deadshot, Margot Robbie on as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto on as The Joker, Jai Courtney in as Boomarang and Tom Hardy on as Rick Flagg, the film added Viola Davis as anti-hero Amanda Waller. Last week saw Hardy drop out over the script with Jake Gyllenhaal rumored to replace him. Now we have the details of the story (plot points) from two inside sources that corroborate each other.
Warning...Spoilers Ahead So If You Don't Want To Know Anything, Leave Now.
You Have Been Warned!
Source one tells us:
Deadshot and Harley Quinn meet early when Deadshot is assassinating an inmate that is being transported from Arkham. »
