One of the biggest changes to that film revolved around The Joker, with Jared Leto’s role cut significantly, and the Clown Prince of Crime’s relationship with Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn toned down to make it less abusive.
As we glimpsed in the trailers and marketing material, The Joker would also have been more involved in the film’s third act, with the Clown Prince of Crime reappearing after the helicopter crash to confront Task Force X.
Taking to Twitter, director Ayer has revealed his original plans for Leto’s Joker, stating that: “After Joker dropped [Harley] from the [helicopter] and crashed, Enchantress made a deal with him. He was going to take Harley home and
Headlining the additions to their slate is “Eerie,” by cult Filipino director Mikhail Red. Others are Indian animation “Schirkoa” and thriller, “Mogwai.”
Red shot to prominence with “Neomanila” and “Birdshot,” which was rewarded with the Asian Future prize at the Tokyo festival and was The Philippines’ Oscar selection last year. The new film centers on a clairvoyant counsellor who investigates a murder in a Catholic school where the only witness is the ghost of a suicide victim.
Produced by Micah Tadena as a Singapore-Philippines co-venture, production credits go to Abs-cbn’s Star Cinema and Media East Productions. Local stars, Bea Alonzo, Charo Santos-Concio and Jake Cuenca take the lead roles and are now shooting.

We know that DC has Aquaman set to arrive in December, followed by Shazam – which is now in production – in April 2019 and Wonder Woman 2 in December 2019. Well, it seems that Diana’s second solo outing will then be followed by Suicide Squad 2, with Omega Underground reporting that director Gavin O’Connor will be reassembling the worst heroes ever to start shooting the sequel in the UK in October. Before then, Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot will also return to the UK to start principal photography on Wonder Woman 2 beginning May 28th 2018.
Wonder Woman 2 will see Gal Gadot joined by Kristen Wiig (Ghostbusters), who has
Joel Kinnaman took to Instagram to reveal that he has been working out and training with fellow stars Jai Courtney and Jay Hernandez. They have a personal trainer on hand and are trying to get themselves looking ripped enough to pull off looking like actual comic book characters, not to mention the physical demands of filming a movie like Suicide Squad 2. According to the post, they worked so hard that Hernandez actually puked.
"Brendan whipping us back into shape.
Anyone who wondered why actor Jay Hernandez is in that picture when Diablo apparently sacrificed himself in the first film, give yourself a prize! Now, it's possible these guys could be training for another film, but the appearance of Jai Courtney really makes it seem like these guys are pumping iron for the sequel villain ensemble flick.
Rumors of Hernandez's return have circulated the web, but there hasn't been any solid confirmation he would come back until this photo surfaced. Even with this photo, there's always a chance Diablo is as dead as a doornail. After all, his heroic send-off in
Those plans took a major blow days before David Ayer’s anti-hero feature arrived, though, when early reviews painted Suicide Squad as a calamitous mess and, perhaps most disappointing of all, a wasted opportunity. But the box office numbers said otherwise and after pulling in a whopping $745 million, Suicide Squad 2 is now brewing in post-production.
Already, we know that Jared Leto, Margot Robbie and Will Smith are all back on board to reprise their respective roles – Joker, Harley Quinn and Deadshot – and it seems they’ll be joined by a few more familiar faces as well: Captain Boomerang, Rick Flag and Diablo. Yes, you read that last one right. Diablo will be back for the sequel. Or at least,

While interacting with a fan on Twitter, David Ayer conceded that he regrets not making The Joker – played by Jared Leto – the main villain of the piece.
Yeah it was a big fun silly movie. It could have been a bigger
It’s rare that you get to see a snowball rolling down a hill. The popular metaphor about momentum has always struck me as odd for a few reasons. First, how often does someone roll a snowball down a hill, much less successfully have a hand-sized ball of snow transform into a gigantic ice-cold flattening orb? Second, even if this was physically probable it’s doubtful that you were there to witness it. More than likely, you’re seeing the thing just moments before it mows you down like a Looney Tunes character.
The last few weeks has been the first time that the snowball metaphor has felt apt. I watched, as so many did, as accusations rolled out against small type perps like Devin Faraci, Harry Knowles and their enablers like the head of Alamo Drafthouse
According to reports, Leto sent a number of bizarre “Joker-inspired” gifts to his cast mates, including live rats, a dead pig, bullets, “sticky” Playboy magazines, anal beads and even used condoms. However, it seems some of the more outlandish reports may have been wide of the mark, as Leto has downplayed the situation during an interview with Entertainment Weekly to promote his new film Blade Runner 2049.
“Most of it was total bullshit,” said Leto. “Like that I was giving used condoms to people, which was not true. It doesn’t matter how loud you shout or hold up a sign with your pants off in Times Square — people will run the story that they want.
This resembles the crazed love child of ’Allo ’Allo! and Suite Française; it’s actually adapted from the 2003 novel The Kaiser’s Last Kiss by Alan Judd. We are in occupied Holland in 1940, where the abdicated German Kaiser is now living – played with much bewhiskered grumpiness by Christopher Plummer. Janet McTeer plays the prickly empress. With the Nazis now in charge, a decent Wehrmacht officer is put in charge of the Kaiser’s security, and this is Captain Stefan Brandt, played by Jai Courtney, who soon cops a couple of super-raunchy love scenes with the Kaiser’s comely Dutch maidservant Mieke, in which role Lily James talks about “sherving the Kaissher” in a Steve McClaren Dutch accent.
It all comes to a head when Heinrich Himmler (Eddie Marsan) comes to dinner,
