Jared Leto’s portrayal of the Joker might have been divisive for the fan community…but for DC and Warner Brothers it was good enough for a second round. Leto first played The Joker in 2016’s Suicide Squad and promptly stole every scene he was in. This is one of two Joker films looking to start production in the next year or so. The DCEU is starting to get as crowded as the MCU.
Margot Robbie is set to take on the myth of Robin Hood in Pete Berry‘s script Marian. Robin Hood is one of those classic tales that has been told a hundred times and will be retold hundreds of thousands of times before the sun burns out in the sky. This time according to the title, Marian will play a much bigger role in what is called a serious and gritty script. Check out the details below. (more…)
Whatever you thought of the movie, there is no denying that Suicide Squad was a commercial success, raising almost $750million at the box office. When a film makes that much money, it doesn’t matter how many bad reviews it receives or angry blog posts it inspires, the industry makes sure to create more of it, to see how long it can remain lucrative. In the case of the baddest of the bad, it seems like the team behind the movie have taken into account fans’ opinions about what they really liked in this movie, as it has been recently announced that Margot Robbie will be reprising her role as Harley Quinn in a screen adaptation of Gotham City Sirens.

Whatever anyone feels towards David Ayers Suicide Squad, it can be generally agreed that Margot Robbie‘s performance of Harley Quinn was the least worst thing. That might not be saying a whole lot, particularly under the scope of a critics eye, but regardless, an insanely popular DC character got her first big cinematic debut… and she killed! All those Daddy’s Little Monster fans want to see her back, immediately.
Ask, and they will be done. Margot Robbie will be back alright. Not as a sequel to SS, nor as a solo flick. She’ll be getting new flick teaming up with some of the baddest girls of Gotham. (more…)
Suicide Squad wasn’t even out of theaters before Warner Bros. doubled down on a spin-off movie for Margot Robbie‘s Harley Quinn. The character stole the movie right out from under the other characters including Jared Leto‘s Mr. J. Now word is making the Internet rounds that Warner Bros. has brought on a talented script writer that’s been making the Black List (the list of the best un-produced scripts of the year) since 2012. Best known for Shut In starring Naomi Watts that just hit theaters this weekend, Christina Hodson has also had her hand in the new The Fugitive, and a Bumblebee solo movie. (more…)
The romantic relationship between Dr Harleen Quinzel and her once psychiatric patient, the Joker, is once of popular culture’s most compelling connections. One of the comic world’s best fleshed out exploration of Stockholm syndrome and domestic abuse, Harley Quinn is such a captivating character because you understand why she makes so many bad decisions when it comes to matters of the heart. You fall in love with her. But, as an outsider, you also see the pain in her relationship, in the way the Joker manipulates her, in the way he breaks her down from a strong and intelligent woman to a pet he can control.

When the reviews for Suicide Squad started breaking earlier this week, the news was, um, not good. A lot of people were hoping that critics might give the film the old “thumbs up” rubber stamp, and while there hasn’t been a chorus of non-stop negativity like the one that greeted Batman V. Superman, Suicide Squad was still ranked a dud on that root of all evil, Rotten Tomatoes. On the bright side, it still looks like Suicide Squad is going to collect massive bank over the weekend, so does what the critics say matter in this instance? If you ask the cast and crew, the answer is “No.” (more…)
We’re just a week away from David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad hitting theaters screens in what is looking to be a blockbuster weekend for the Warner Bros. film. Hot off the SDCC 2016 Hall H panel, there doesn’t seem to be anything that can slow down this Suicide Squad Freight Train. There was an interesting difference between what was shown at Hall H and what we’ve seen on television so far and it all comes down to Harley Quinn’s (Margot Robbie) incredible shrinking Hot Pants.
