David Ayer Says The Suicide Squad We Saw Was Very Different From Original Cut

Though 2016’s Suicide Squad made money and won a few fans around the globe after critics had their way with it, many involved with the piece later spoke out against it. First there was Jared Leto and now, director David Ayer has confirmed what we all had assumed for a very long time about the movie: His cut of the film was very different from what the public saw in theaters.

The Bright helmer recently said on Twitter that the version we got to witness was “vastly different from [its] original assembly” and Harley Quinn’s story arc was “vastly simplified.” In addition, Ayer also appeared to speak critically of today’s entertainment industry, noting “[most directors] are treated as figureheads and actually have very little say over the final product. We just don’t talk about it.”

If you keep up with the news, you’ll know this silence is not without good reason.

Here’s What Michael B. Jordan Would Look Like As The Next Superman

Amid the furore of Henry Cavill’s alleged departure from Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe, a curious rumor emerged linking Michael B. Jordan, star of Black Panther and Josh Trank’s ill-fated Fantastic Four reboot, with the seemingly vacant role of Superman.

First reported by Deadline, the story goes that Warner has earmarked Jordan to be the next Man of Steel further down the road, as it’ll be “several years” before the studio is ready to fast-track a standalone Superman movie.

Only The Flash, The Batman and Birds of Prey are expected to enter production next year, while the Powers That Be are reportedly keen to prioritize the Supergirl origin movie that’s now percolating in development. All of this leaves Kal-El out in the cold, and we wouldn’t be too surprised if this contributed to Henry Cavill’s rumored decision to choose The Witcher over the Dceu.

Tim Miller’s ‘Deadpool 2’ Concept Art Shows Intended Fantastic Four Appearance

Without a doubt, one of the biggest superhero film failures of the modern era is 2015’s “Fantastic Four,” aka ‘Fant4stic.’ The Josh Trank-helmed feature not only suffered extreme behind-the-scenes drama, which led to the director publicly denouncing the film during opening weekend, but also was a massive bomb for Fox at the box office. Needless to say, fans weren’t ever going to see a sequel to the film.

‘Fantastic Four’ Writer Apologizes for 2015 Remake: ‘Umm…Sorry About That One, Guys’
Fantastic Four” screenwriter Jeremy Slater apologized for the 2015 remake on Twitter while gushing about his upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Tommyknockers.”

“When I finally got my foot in the door, I only had three dream projects on my bucket list,” he wrote on a Twitter thread Thursday. “One was Marvel, one was Star Wars, and the third, of course, was Stephen King. Any one of those jobs would let me die a happy man.”

“Now, thirty years later, I’m beyond thrilled to be part of the team bringing The Tommyknockers to life. It just feels…right, you know? Like coming home. And most of all, thanks to @stephenking for the lifetime of incredible nightmares,” he added. “Just don’t go in the woods.”

  • SneakPeek
Sneak Peek actor Tom Hardy ("Mad Max: Fury Road") as gangster 'Alphonse "Scarface" Capone', from director Josh Trank's "Fonzo" chronicling the life of the ruthless, former Chicago mob boss, prior to his death:

Cast of "Fonzo" also includes Matt Dillon, Kyle MacLachlan, Kathrine Narducci and Linda Cardellini.

Hardy said he had been working closely with Warner Bros, "watching their gangster films — the ones with James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart and Edward G. Robinson...

"...it’s interesting to get them, and a bit of 'Capone', into the bloodstream…

"The idea isn’t to remake those films...

"...but to get a flavor of them as we explore Capone’s career as a racketeer."

The "Cicero" screenplay was originally written by Walon Green, noted for writing director Sam Peckinpah's classic western "The Wild Bunch".

Tom Hardy Becomes Al Capone In Another New Fonzo Photo

While Venom isn’t scheduled to invade a multiplex near you for another few months, Tom Hardy is already hard at work on his next role in which most of his gorgeous mug is concealed: Fonzo.

Scheduled for release sometime in 2019, the pic will see Hardy inhabit the skin of notorious crime boss Al Capone. Currently in post-production, we got our first look at the Academy Award nominee in full Capone prosthetic earlier this month, and the image really had to be seen to be believed. Although, should you still be of the mind that your vision is deceiving you, don’t worry, we’ve got the cure.

Courtesy of Collider, a brand spanking new photo of Hardy as the Chicago Outfit mafioso has surfaced online, which you can check out below (along with some previously released pics) and no, your eyesight isn’t failing you, it really is Tom Hardy under that pale,

New Photo of Tom Hardy as Al Capone in Fonzo and His Voice is Based on Bugs Bunny

A new photo has surfaced from the upcoming film Fonzo and it gives us a new look at Tom Hardy in the role of Al Capone. He looks good in the role, and I just want to point out that those aren’t wrinkles on his face, those are scars, which are the result of Capone insulting a woman and getting his face sliced up by her brother. This earned him the nickname "Scarface."

But it sounds like he's going to bring an interesting voice to the Capone. Apparently his voice is based on the popular Looney Tunes character Bugs Bunny. It's hard to imagine that when you look at his hardened face in the photo above, but in a recent Esquire profile, Hardy says that he was mostly inspired by Bugs Bunny for his role as Capone.

The person interviewing him even got got to listen to his voice and they said,

New Fantastic Four Fan Art Envisions Dave Franco As The Human Torch

With the merger between The Walt Disney Company and 21st Century Fox teetering on completion, it won’t be long before Deadpool, the X-Men and the Fantastic Four are returned to their rightful owner. And given the abhorrent reception to the reboot of the latter, directed by Josh Trank, I’m sure Marvel’s eager to get another crack at transitioning the superhuman supergroup from comic book to the big screen.

However, the House of Mouse still has quite a bit of ground to cover before we go planning a viewing party. That said, one can forgive the fanbase for getting overexcited. After all, the Fantastic Four have yet to receive a proper adaptation and taking into account the unprecedented triumph of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the pending amalgamation will undoubtedly provide Reed, Susan, Ben and Johnny their best chance at success yet.

Tom Hardy’s Al Capone In ‘Fonzo’ Sounds Like “A Cartoon Rabbit With A Severe Case Of Vocal Fry”

With the new trailer for “Venom” that was released recently, the talk didn’t surround the prevalent use of special effects (which look…okay) or the plot of the film. No, instead the big talk was around star Tom Hardy and his unique voice that he’s using for the character. Well, if audiences aren’t sure about the voice he’s using to play a reporter in a superhero action movie, just wait until they hear the voice he’s using to play an aging, ill Al Capone in “Fonzo.”

Recently, we got our first official look at Hardy as Capone in the upcoming Josh Trank-directed film.

The image, which was shared Wednesday night by “Fonzo” writer/director Josh Trank from the film’s New Orleans set, sees Hardy fully immersed as the legendary Chicago gangster as he chomps on a cigar in heavy white makeup while sporting snazzy pajamas.

Trank wrote the script and is directing the film, which will explore the mobster’s life at 47 years old, after being released from prison. Capone will be forced to consider his violent and reprehensible actions as his mind is ravaged by dementia.

Tom Hardy's Al Capone in Fonzo Sounds Like Bugs Bunny

Tom Hardy's Al Capone in Fonzo Sounds Like Bugs Bunny
Tom Hardy has, at least in part, based one of his latest characters on Bugs Bunny. Hardy is currently filming Fonzo, a biopic that chronicles the later years of notorious gangster Al Capone. The actor is known for giving the characters he plays rather unique voices, with mixed results. Hardy has revealed that his take on Al Capone may be his weirdest and most bizarre one yet, as it's inspired by the famous Looney Tunes character.

The reveal comes as part of a wide-ranging interview that was recently published on Tom Hardy. During the interview, the actor was explaining his process for developing the characters he portrays. While on the subject of Al Capone in Fonzo, Hardy said the character sounds like Bugs Bunny.

Tom Hardy Says He Channeled ‘Woody Allen’s Tortured Neurosis’ for ‘Venom,’ but He Didn’t Tell Sony That

Tom Hardy Says He Channeled ‘Woody Allen’s Tortured Neurosis’ for ‘Venom,’ but He Didn’t Tell Sony That
Tom Hardy is taking on the most visible role of his career in Sony’s “Venom,” in which he plays skittish journalist Eddie Brock and his eponymous alter-ego. In order to tackle the challenge of playing the movie’s dual roles, Hardy looked to an odd mix of reference points. The actor revealed to Esquire it was none other than Woody Allen that informed his approach to Brock.

While reading the script, Hardy said Eddie Brock and Venom reminded him of three specific people: “Woody Allen’s tortured neurosis and all the humor that can come from that. Conor McGregor—the überviolence but not all the talking. And Redman—out of control, living rent-free in his head.”

Hardy admitted he knew better than to tell the executives at Sony about channeling Allen and this unusual mix of influences when he was being considered for the role. “You don’t say
