Suicide Squad wasn’t exactly a runaway hit when it arrived in theaters back in 2016. But we can’t disregard it completely since it did give us the gifts of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, and Viola Davis as Amanda Waller. They’re all back in The Suicide Squad, the latest iteration of the DC Comics villain ensemble, this time with Guardians of the Galaxy franchise director James Gunn behind the camera, and an insane new roster of cast members. If the Suicide Squad featurette that just debuted is any indicator, you’re gonna forget all about that other Suicide Squad movie. Read More »
The Sandman was one of those groundbreaking comic book properties that has long eluded Hollywood. But nevertheless, Neil Gaiman‘s surreal, fantastical graphic novel series would leave its mark on pop culture since its publication in 1989, and continues to do so today with the writer continually returning to his beloved series, first to write new adventures for Morpheus, the anthropomorphic personification of Dream, then to help develop the audio and live-action adaptations of The Sandman.

Warner Bros. has announced that DC FanDome, its first-ever virtual convention dedicated to all things DC Comics and the films and TV shows those comics have inspired, will now be split over the course of two days.
The biggest date to keep circled on your calendar is still this Saturday, August 22 – that’s when the biggest movie panels will be taking place in the virtual Hall of Heroes, showcasing panels discussions and (probably) footage for upcoming films like Wonder Woman 1984, The Batman, The Suicide Squad, and more.
But now the smaller panels are being split off into their own day on September 12. And while the Hall of Heroes content will still be broadcast at specific times, everything on FanDome’s second day will be available on demand, so you can curate your own schedule and watch what you want, when you want it.
