Ever since he was fired from Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3, the nerd world at large has been wondering just what would become of James Gunn. Would he retreat from the public eye indefinitely? Go back to the smaller genre films that he was known for before Guardians? Or would he jump ship for a rival studio?
Well, this week we got the answer, and it’s option three. Read the rest of this entry
I think a lot of us can agree that by and large, 2016 was a pretty bad year all around. Nearly every major blockbuster movie disappointed, the country showed us how terrible it can be, and we lost a ton of great performers and celebrities to the man upstairs. That’s what makes this installment of my annual ‘Worst of” lists so much more difficult. In a year as crappy as this one, how can you choose the absolute crap of the crap? Well my friends, I’ve thought long and hard about this one, and after much deliberation, I give you my absolute WORST of 2016. Read the rest of this entry
This week, WB and the CW aired their DC universe special, and with it, we got another look at the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. Yes, we had one trailer already, but since that was a Comic Con exclusive that was released after it was leaked online, this is the first real, legit trailer for the second film in WB’s DC cinematic universe.
And it’s pretty awesome. Read the rest of this entry
A week after we got our first look at the new Clown Prince of Crime in the upcoming Suicide Squad film, we now have our first look at the fully assembled Suicide Squad team that will be appearing in David Ayer’s film. There’s Will Smith’s Deadshot, Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomerang, and most importantly ,Margot Robie as Harley Quinn. Read the rest of this entry
Whoooo boy. What a week. Not only did we finally get confirmation on Benedict Cumberbatch playing Stephen Strange, we also got Kristen Ritter as our lead in Alias, Ryan Reynolds returning for Deadpool, and the entirety of the Suicide Squad, including Jared Leto as our new Clown Prince of Crime.
Of all of the casting news that hit last week, the biggest is probably the Suicide Squad one. Nothing against Marvel and their Doctor Strange casting, but Cumberbatch was all but confirmed about a month ago, with numerous outlets all but saying the deal was done. The same can be said about Ryan Reynolds’s signing on for Deadpool. Everyone pretty much assumed those two were playing those parts, so when the news was confirmed the other day it was exciting, but not as surprising as the news regarding the Suicide Squad cast.

Rumor has it that Jared Leto is being sought out to play the Joker for David Ayer’s upcoming Suicide Squad film. This news comes as a definite shock, not only because the Oscar winner was a rumored front-runner for Doctor Strange (a role that I’m not entirely sure he’d be a good fit for), but also because this is the first time the character will be associated with the super villain team.
When it comes to Leto playing The Clown Prince of Crime, I don’t have any real problems with it. I actually think he’d be pretty good in the role. However I highly doubt that Leto would do it. He’s pretty committed to his band 30 Seconds to Mars, so much so that he’s barely done any films for the past ten years. Hell, Dallas Buyers Club, the movie he won an Oscar for last year, was the first movie he’d done since 2009. It’s safe to assume that a role like The Joker would require a multipicture deal, which is something that I’d be very surprised that Leto would be okay with. Read the rest of this entry
