Suicide Squad director David Ayer says the Joker / Jason Todd rumour is ridiculous

13 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As it commonplace with superhero movies these days, Warner Bros.Suicide Squad movie has been surrounded by rumour and speculation from the moment it was first announced, with countless “scoops” from websites claiming to have the inside track on the film… the majority of which will be quietly swept under the carpet when the movie arrives in a little over a week from now.

During an interview with Wsvn-tv’s Chris Van Vliet (via THR), Suicide Squad helmer David Ayer was ssked what the most ridiculous rumour he’d heard during the making of the film, with the director responding: “That the Joker is Jason Todd. It ain’t the case. He’s not.”

The Joker / Jason Todd theory stems from Jared Leto’s Joker having a tattoo of a dead bird, along with the Robin costume glimpsed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which apparently has bullet holes »

Looks like Batman may not be the only Justice League member in Suicide Squad

26 July 2016 1:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning. Potential spoilers for Suicide Squad follow…

We know that The Dark Knight is set to feature in Warner Bros.’ next DC Films offering Suicide Squad, but Batman may not be the only Justice League member set to make his second appearance on the big screen this year.

Having appeared briefly in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, it looks like Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen may also feature in Suicide Squad, with Comic Book noting the following shot from the trailer, featuring Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang:

The lightning bolts seen in the shot are very similar to those surrounding Ezra Miller’s Flash in the Justice League trailer, which arrived online this past weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con…

Given that Boomerang is one of the Flash’s Rogues, it would make sense for Barry Allen to make an appearance, particularly if we get any kind of backstory on the villain. »

‘Narcos’ Season 2 Trailer: Pablo Escobar Escapes From Prison To Reign Again

21 July 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Netflix series “Narcos” chronicles the life of Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar (played by Wagner Moura) and the two DEA agents desperate to hunt him down. As Escobar takes control of Colombia, cocaine from the country starts to take over America, and drug-related violence follows not far behind. The DEA sends Steve Murphy (Boyd Holbrook), Javier Peña (Pedro Pascal), and a whole task force to work with Colombian authorities to put an end to the drug trade. But as they arrive in the country, Escobar has problems of his own with rival gangs, business associates, and political violence that brings unwanted attention to his gang. At the start of the second season, Escobar escapes from prison untouched and has taken over the reigns of the drug business once again while the authorities are planning a full invasion to bring him down. Watch the trailer for the new season below. »

Padilha Talks The Failure Of "Robocop"

21 July 2016 4:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Every other month it seems, a non-u.S. filmmaker takes their shot at a Hollywood film. In early 2014, "Elite Squad" and "Narcos" director Jose Padilha had his go with the reboot of "RoboCop" which sadly failed both critically and commercially.

From all reports during production, the film itself was a victim of compromised vision along with studio politics and economics. The very R-rated franchise tried to go PG-13 to appeal to a wider demographic and failed to find its target.

A few years on, Padilha has reflected on the experience with Screen Daily and from the sounds of it he's in no hurry to return to Hollywood studio or blockbuster filmmaking any time soon:

"I didn't have the creative freedom I needed. I spent 90% of the time fighting. It made me realize that making a studio movie is not the same as making a film. I will think a million »

José Padilha expresses disappointment with his RoboCop reboot

20 July 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Back in 2014, the RoboCop reboot ended up being a disappointment, failing to live up to its predecessor and performing poorly enough both critically and financially that a sequel was never really an option. Now, it sits alongside Total Recall as a remake which never should have happened. However, it turns out that director José Padilha […]

Suicide Squad gets a 15 certificate from the BBFC

20 July 2016 8:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may be rated PG-13 in the States, but you’re going to have to be fifteen years or older to watch Suicide Squad here in the UK and Ireland.

The BBFC has granted the DC supervillain ensemble a 15 certificate – the same as the R-rated Deadpool earlier this year – due to “sustained threat and moderate violence.”

Typically PG-13 certificate films are granted a 12A by the BBFC, but obviously in this case they felt that the levels of threat and violence are too extreme for younger viewers.

It’s a tale as old as time: a director making their first big league Hollywood movie, studio executives trying to shepherd a valuable IP to franchise spawning success, and the inevitable conflict of commerce versus creativity that follows.
