On the big superhero calendar, both DC and Marvel have major films that start shooting soon. For Marvel, it’s Captain America: Civil War and for DC, it’s David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad. Ayer has been pretty awesome with fans so far, regularly tweeting out teases at the pre-production as well as the transformation of star Jared Leto into the Joker. Not to mention lots of his cast recently had films out so we’ve been hearing lots of little snippets here and there too.
Movie scooper El Mayimbe has also been all over Suicide Squad, dropping three significant pieces of information over the last few days on his Instagram. The latest is the biggest, that Jared Leto’s Joker will be primarily based on the Frank Miller Dark Knight Returns incarnation. There’s more too, including a bit of his situation at the start of the film and links to Batman.
Below, read the latest Jared Leto Joker information as well as potential info on another character in the film and the villains. Read More »

The post Red State Kevin Smith is a workaholic. He’s making movie (Tusk) after movie (Yoga Hosers) and now he may be doing a follow up one of his most beloved.
Thursday, Smith tweeted his upcoming schedule for the next year and a half. Clerks III shoots in May, the Canadian hockey mini-series Hit Somebody shoots in the Fall and Winter, then he makes Moose Jaws in early 2016. The writer/director then dropped this line “But after that? I smell a rat…” Sounds like he might be going back to the mall for a sequel to his cult hit Mallrats.

Despite having a March 3, 2017 release date, we’ve heard very little about The Wolverine 2. Director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman will return to tell a new story that centers on everyone’s favorite mutant but that’s pretty much all we know for sure. There have been rumors, of course, but with three X-Universe films coming out before that – X-Men Apocalypse, Deadpool and Gambit – we really don’t know where Wolverine will be once his next solo film is released.
The director was asked, via Twitter, when the film would shoot. He offered up a concrete, albeit obvious piece of information. The Wolverine 2 will begin filming in early 2016. Read more about the Wolverine 2 update below. Read More »
James Gunn has been very honest that he’s going to be adding characters to Guardians of the Galaxy 2. That’s what happens in a sequel. The universe gets expanded, flipped on its head, some characters die, others go away, anything is possible. The bigger question is who, or in the Guardians galaxy “what,” is going to be added to the sequel? Since the movie is over two years away, we won’t get that full reveal for a while but the writer and director dropped a cryptic hint about a new addition on Twitter.

In 2014, Jared Leto won an Oscar for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club. In 2015, that meant two things. He could do any role he wanted and he had to appear at awards shows to present. We know the role he chose, Joker in David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad, and we all saw the actor at the Oscars, sporting long, flowing locks and full beard. He looked decidedly un-like the Joker.
Well, the first step in Jared Leto’s physical transformation into the Clown Prince of Gotham City has begun. Plus Ayer described the character using one kind of surprising word. Below, check out the Jared Leto Joker preparation.
UPDATE: See a second photo from the film’s director too.

Director Duncan Jones finished shooting Warcraft almost a year ago. Production wrapped in May of 2014 but the film is not scheduled for release until March 11, 2016. In the meantime, the director and his team are working hard not only on post-production, which includes a lot of performance capture and computer graphics, but marketing. How do you sell the masses on a super-geeky property based on a popular video game which still remains a niche property as far as the mainstream is concerned?
One idea Jones had was to do two separate Warcraft trailers for two of the major factions in the action fantasy adaptation: one for the Horde and one for the Alliance. Whether or not that’ll happen, or when it’ll happen, we don’t yet know. But below, read Jones discuss Warcraft’s marketing and offer an update on the film. Read More »
