uicide Squad writer and director David Ayer has announced his full support of James Gunn’s upcoming sequel/complete reimagining, The Suicide Squad.
The 'Goodfellas' legend will join with '8 Mile' screenwriter Scott Silver, who will co-write the project, with 'The Hangover' helmsman Todd Phillips directing.
Last year’s ‘Suicide Squad’ was a talking point for many reasons – and now it’s notched up another. In a gif that’s been cut together from a behind-the-scenes featurette, you can clearly see that the actress’s waist has been narrowed to appear what they deem more aesthetically pleasing to viewers. Positive body image is considered an important ethical trait in 2017, with TV shows and movies often slammed if they fail to promote all body types and attempt to exclude bodies that aren’t stick-thin.
It’s little secret that the DC Extended Universe, the Warner Bros-owned comic company’s attempt at a rival to the mighty Marvel Cinematic Universe, is struggling. Whilst its three existing movies – 2013’s ‘Man of Steel,’ and 2016’s ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ – all performed well at the box office, none of them have won over audiences or critics the way Marvel have. This means that, at present, the only DC movie lined up for release in 2018 is ‘Aquaman.’ However, it has emerged that the studio are contemplating filling the gap left by ‘The Batman’ by accelerating the development process on one of their planned films.
It looks like that spin-off Harley Quinn movie with Margot Robbie is go. Rumoured earlier this year, even before the release of ‘Suicide Squad’, the Australian actress has now signed a ‘first look’ deal with Warner Bros, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It will have helped no end that ‘Suicide Squad’, despite its terrible reviews, has raked in the cash for Warner Bros – it currently stands at a $701 million gross worldwide.
