Justice League's behind-the-scenes problems are well-documented now, but it's not the first superhero movie to have super-sized difficulties coming to screen.
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 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 .
Going into Suicide Squad, much of the attention rightly focused on Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn as the breakout member of the dysfunctional, dastardly ensemble. When the team codenamed Task Force X is assembled, government puppetmaster Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) singles out the Enchantress as the linchpin, exponentially more powerful than the others, yet also the biggest wildcard. The challenge is reining in the source of her powers — an ancient demon-witch that has inhabited the body of a young woman with an only-in-the-comics name of June Moone.
The cast of ‘Justice League’ turned out to support their fellow DC Universe cast mates last night at the ‘Suicide Squad’ UK premiere in London’s Leicester Square. Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Ezra Miller, and Jason Momoa were the surprise guests at the film’s gala screening that saw thousands of fans gathering to catch a glimpse of their heroes… and villains.

Clint Eastwood has revealed that he’ll vote for Donald Trump in the upcoming U.S. presidential election. The legendary actor and director made this admission to Esquire during his joint interview with his son Scott Eastwood. After being asked who he’d vote for between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, Clint Eastwood admitted, “That’s a tough one, isn’t it?
Suicide Squad might not be the most glamorous film — Harley Quinn’s uniform consists of short shorts and a ripped T-shirt, The Joker favors blue sweatpants, Enchantress wears body chains, and more — but the cast’s real-life counterparts certainly dress elegantly in real life. At the Monday night premiere in New York city, Margot Robbie shined in a unicorn dress from Alexander McQueen, Cara Delevingne looked sexy in a slip dress and thigh-high boots, Viola Davis’s Vivienne Westwood dress and velvet heel combo was glamorous, and more. Many of the actors even paid tribute to their characters: Jay Hernandez rocked Converse sneakers with Diablo’s inked face on them and Adam Beach honored Slipknot with a leather jacket covered in Suicide Squad-themed patches. But the best look of the night?
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.
