Report claims filmmaker is off planned spin-off 'Gotham City Sirens,' which may have been scrapped in favour of Harley Quinn/Joker movie.
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.
‘Suicide Squad’s’ many, many detractors were left aghast on Sunday night, when the critically mauled blockbuster walked away with an Academy Award.
Five different films, including Oscar nominees “Star Trek Beyond” and “Suicide Squad,” won awards on Sunday night at the Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild Awards.
A raft of thespians really made the effort to become unrecognisable for roles in 2016, whether through over-eating (McConaughey), heavy prosthetics (Downton’s Dan Stevens for ‘Beauty and the Beast’) or simply just bad eyebrows (John Travolta in ‘The People Vs O.J. Simpson). Here are a few more of the best.

The tangled and twisted ‘X-Men’ universe is so full of plot holes and parallel timelines it’s impossible to join the dots. By far the biggest plot hole in ‘Apocalypse’ is the fact that none of the characters seem to have aged at all – the film is set in 1983, 21 years after the events of ‘X-Men: First Class’, but the cast have barely aged a day.
Watch out, puddin’ – it looks like Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn movie has found its writer. On top of which, the report would appear to confirm that the as-yet untitled film will not be a Harley Quinn solo movie as such, but will also feature other female DC characters – including, this report says, the Birds of Prey. As previously reported, Robbie will produce as well as star in the film, although there remains no official confirmation of which other characters will appear in the film, nor any hint of casting news.
Just when we thought the future of ‘Deadpool’ was looking rosy, its director Tim Miller has left the project. Deadline have revealed that due to creative differences Miller has left the project, which comes as quite a blow to the beginning of what was shaping to be a lucrative franchise. Having directed the 2015 hit, Miller was on board to helm the sequel which would see Ryan Reynolds return as the foul-mouthed, quick talking merc, Deadpool, but it appears their working relationship is now over.
Arguably DC fans are most excited to see how the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ turns, hoping it’ll be the turning point where the studio can begin to compete with Marvel for big screen prowess. While ‘Wonder Woman’ is in cinemas next summer and Patty Jenkins’ production is shaping up nicely, it’s perhaps Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ that looks set to be the film that competes with Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ series. With all the buzz around the character, Snyder (who’s directing ‘Justice League’ and is responsible for ‘Man of Steel’ and ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’) has shared a brand new image of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman on Twitter.
The marketing campaigns for ‘Deadpool’ and ‘Suicide Squad’ were among the big winners at the Clio Key Art awards last night in Los Angeles. ‘Deadpool’ was named as best Theatrical: Integrated Campaign, with its iconic emoji poster winning the Clio Grand Prize for best billboard advert. ‘Suicide Squad’s garish poster campaign also won a handful of Gold Prizes too. Here’s a selection of 2016’s best movie posters, according to the 2016 Clio Key Art Awards .
An extended version of ‘Suicide Squad’ is coming to Blu-ray later this year, Warner Bros. has announced. ‘Suicide Squad Extended Cut’ is coming to Digital HD on 28 November, with a Blu-ray release on 5 December, just in time for Christmas.

Harley Quinn and The Joker, versus Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey: we could endlessly debate as to which is the unhealthiest representation of romance in contemporary pop culture.
Harley Quinn is having a moment. Daddy’s Li’l Monster has emerged as an indisputable breakout in the run-up to the August premiere of Suicide Squad, perhaps the summer’s most anticipated film. Played on screen by Margot Robbie, the character is a relatively recent edition to the DC Universe, first surfacing in a 1992 episode of the classic cartoon Batman: The Animated Series.
