DC FanDome finally brought us a first look at James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad. The DC Comics movie continues the adventures of a few characters from 2016’s Suicide Squad, but thanks to the Guardians of the Galaxy director stepping behind the camera, the movie has a completely new style and it seems to have a much more vibrant look that draws from the colorful side of DC Comics. Along with that, there’s a huge new roster of characters, many of them from the more obscure pages of John Ostrander‘s run on the comic book series. Since people probably don’t know a lot about them, here are The Suicide Squad characters explained. Read More »
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 Fast and Furious franchise hit a couple of speed bumps over the past few years with The Fate of the Furious and the series’ first spin-off, Hobbs and Shaw, but this year, we’ll see the latest entry in the primary ongoing storyline, which is officially being referred to as The Fast Saga. That means no Dwayne Johnson or Jason Statham, but instead a renewed focus on Vin Diesel‘s Dominic Toretto and his eclectic group of racers-turned-international-spies. (God, I love these movies so much.)
And thankfully, there’s one very important #family member who’s returning after a multi-year absence: Justin Lin, who directed the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth movies in this series and was really the person who hit the NOS button on this franchise and turned these films into the globe-spanning, high-octane, over-the-top action extravaganzas they are today. And hot damn, it looks like he hasn’t missed a beat getting back in the driver’s seat. Check out the first full F9 trailer below.

Universal has released a batch of character posters for the Fast and Furious #family, proving that the road to F9 is not without the occasional pothole. Check out John Cena’s hulking arms below. Read More »
John Cena has been on the rise as an actor ever since he showed a completely different side to his talents with a supporting role in Amy Schumer’s romantic comedy Trainwreck. Since then, he led the animated film Ferdinand, starred in the surprisingly great Blockers, tracked down Transformers in Bumblebee, and he’s joining the squad in Fast and Furious 9. But not all of his choices are going to be winners, as evidenced by the trailer for his next movie.
Playing with Fire is a new family comedy that finds John Cena playing a firefighter who takes a trio of kids under his wing after rescuing them from a fire. For some reason, he’s legally bound to take care of these kids until their parents get back from…somewhere. It doesn’t matter, because this looks absolutely atrocious. Read More »
Fast and Furious 9 is now shooting, which means Vin Diesel and the Fast family are up to their old shenanigans again. It was co-star Michelle Rodriguez‘s birthday the other day, and to celebrate, Nathalie Emmanuel who plays Ramsey in the franchise, shared a Fast and Furious 9 set pic that brings (most of) the family together again. It also provides our first look at new cast member John Cena in character. Spoiler alert: he looks like John Cena.

Looks like writer/director James Gunn truly is using a similar formula with DC’s The Suicide Squad as he did with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy – at least when it comes to casting. Gunn chose Dave Bautista, a former wrestler, to play one of the members of his ensemble in Guardians, and now a new report says that former wrestler John Cena is in talks to join returning players Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, and fellow newcomer Idris Elba in the ensemble cast of The Suicide Squad.
