SUICIDE SQUAD Director David Ayer Admits The Joker Should’ve Been The Main Villain

It seemed like a lot of fans were surprised to learn that after Jared Leto had been cast as The Joker in Suicide Squad, he was hardly in the film. We know that a lot of footage was shot of the character, but ultimately most of it ended up not being used. Like many of you, I assumed The Joker was going to have a much bigger part of the story. Instead, Cara Delevinge‘s Enchantress ended up being the main villain. Some fans didn’t really care for her as the villain, while others seemed to embrace it. I actually kinda liked Enchantress. I liked her more that Leto’s portrayal of The Joker. I know not everyone, will agree with me on that. That’s just my opinion. 

Suicide Squad director David Ayer recently responded to a tweet from actor Norman D. Golden II, who recently watched the film for the first time and commented that he enjoyed it. Ayer used this as an opportunity to share some thoughts on the film saying it could’ve been a bigger success if he had done things differently:

Another fan jumped in and said that it was better than Batman v Superman, then added that The Joker should have been the villain, to which Ayer responded:

I figured that the reason we saw so little of The Joker in Suicide Squad is because they were going to set him up for a much bigger story. Which they are doing with the upcoming Joker and Harley Quinn movie that is currently in development. When previously talking about the film, the director said:

“Wish I had a time machine. I’d make Joker the main villain and engineer a more grounded story. I have to take the good and bad and learn from it.”

David Ayer is currently working on developing Gotham City Sirens for Warner Bros. and I’m actually looking forward to seeing what he does with it. With the things that he learned from his first go-around with DC, I’m sure his next film set in the universe will be much better. 

What do you think about Ayer’s comments about how he should’ve made The Joker the main villain in Suicide Squad?

Marvel Studios Has 20 More Marvel Movies in the Pipeline That Are “Different From Anything That’s Come Before”

We already know that Avengers 4 will bring an end to not only the third phase of the MCU, but it will be the conclusion to everything that started with Iron Man. There will be 22 films in the first three phases of Marvel’s movie plan. After that, everything is going to be different.

During a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that Avengers 4 will “bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale. There will be two distinct periods. Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting.”

As for what comes after, we don’t know much. We know the first film after Avengers 4 will be the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming. We also know that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be used to launch a new overreaching story arc in the MCU. As for how many films that story arc will entail, Feige reveals that they have 20 films already in the pipeline! 

He says that Marvel Studios is “22 movies in, and we’ve got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before – intentionally.” Disney CEO Bob Iger adds, “We’re looking for worlds that are completely separate — geographically or in time — from the worlds that we’ve already visited.”

This is pretty damn exciting and I can’t wait to find out what else Marvel has got cooking! I seriously doubt we’ll find out anything until after Avengers 4 is released. James Gunn has a big role in shaping what we are going to see from Marvel in the future, and I have no doubt things are going to get pretty wild. 

When talking about the future of Marvel, Scarlett Johansson says:

“I feel a lot of joy for the next generation. It’s a bittersweet feeling, but a positive one.”

Marvel Studio has 7,000 characters that they can work with, and I love that they are looking to really change things up and take the films in a completely different direction with lots of completely different characters. 

With another 20 films being planned out, Marvel has the next 10 to 15 years already planned out and I seriously doubt that it’s going to stop there. Marvel’s future looks bright and it’s going to be fun when they eventually start to pull back the curtain on their exciting fiuture. 

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Vanity Fair Covers, Photos, and The Directors Tease Trailer Release

avengers-infinity-war-vanity-fair-covers-photos-and-the-directors-tease-trailer-release1

Thanks to Vanity Fair, we have four covers for Marvel’s highly anticipated film Avengers: Infinity War. They also released a series photos from a photo shoot featuring all of the main characters that will be involved with the film.

The four different covers highlight the Marvel characters who will be teaming up in the film. One Features Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) with Falcon (Anthony Mackie), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), and Thor (Chris Hemsworth), who seems to have his eye and hammer back.

The second cover shows a beardless Captain America (Chris Evans), with Vision (Paul Bettany), Hawkeye (Jeremey Renner), War Machine (Don Cheadle), and the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly).

The third cover features Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo), Black Panther (T’Challa), the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Ant-Man (Paul Rudd).

The final cover shows off Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt).

You will get to see many of the other characters in the photos that were released. I’m sure a lot of these photos are previously used promo photos of these characters especially because Captain America looks nothing like how he’s going to look in Infinity War. It looks like he just stepped off the set of The Winter Soldier because that’s the version of the suit that he’s wearing and he’s not sporting the beard. The Civil War outfit had a touch of red and white. There are also a few other familiar shots of the actors in their roles. You can check them all out below.

The Russo Bros. also teased on Facebook that the trailer for Avengers: Infinity War will be released in days! Apparently, over the weekend, part of the trailer leaked out online. It has been removed, but so some of you may have got a taste of what’s in store.

DARK SOULS Gets an Amazingly Fun CUPHEAD-Style Animated Parody

I imagine not many people have been wondering what the hit video game Dark Souls would look like in the cool animated style of the game Cuphead. But, YouTube Channel 64 Bits created a short parody called “Cupsouls” which gives us just that, and it’s awesome! I would love to play Dark Souls in the style of Cuphead! It’s such a cool look and would be such a fun game, but it will never ever happen! If you’re a fan of these games, you’re gonna enjoy this!

STRANGER THINGS Gets a Radical SESAME STREET Parody Called “Sharing Things”

stranger-things-gets-a-radical-sesame-street-parody-called-sharing-things-social.jpg

For those of you who have been wondering when we would finally see Sesame Street parody Netflix’s Stranger Things… it’s here, and it’s awesome! The parody is called “Sharing Things” and this is the brief synopsis:

The Cookiegorgon has eaten everything in the Snackside Down and is still hungry! Will he learn how to share, or will he continue wreaking havoc on the kids in town by eating all their treats? Tune in to find out!

This parody is in all seriousness complete greatness! It’s an amazingly fun parody that is an incredible tribute to the pop culture phenomenon. If you’re a fan of Stranger Things, you’re gonna love this! It’s a cleverly made parody that lands all the jokes and nails all of the things that we love about the show. Enjoy!

Zack Snyder Supports The JUSTICE LEAGUE Director’s Cut Petition

Ya gotta love fans. Two years ago a group of DC fans started a petition to get Zack Snyder booted from the Justice League movie because they didn’t want him to direct it. Well, they kind of got their wish when he left and was replaced by Joss Whedon

Now that the movie has been released and some fans aren’t happy with the outcome, we have another petition from fans who are now asking for a director’s cut of the film from Zack Snyder to show us what he would have given us. They feel his vision for Justice League would have been better than what we got. Over 120,000 people have signed that petition.

Even Zack Snyder himself is showing his support for it. A DC film fan shared the Justice League Director’s Cut petition on Vero, where it ended up getting a “like” from Snyder, which tells me that he’d be up for a Director’s Cut if the studio would let him do it!

Snyder’s son recently openly accused Warner Bros. of mishandling the whole process of the film and blames them for the reason the movie wasn’t as good as it could’ve been. He says:

“I did enjoy the movie, although it is clearly not what it could have been due to the meddling of Warner Brothers and the forced comedy. The run time was my biggest gripe with the movie, with events that should take a long time over in a flash: but still definitely a fun movie to watch, and would recommend it.”

I’d actually love to see a cut of Snyder’s movie, especially with all of the footage that we saw in the trailers that ended up not making the final cut of the film. I’d be curious to know the direction he would have taken things. Click here to watch a fan-made trailer that features all of the Zack Snyder footage that ended up being cut from the film. 

I would really like to see the studio let Snyder cut together his version of the film, but we’ll just have to wait and see. It could happen years down the road, but I don’t think it’s going to happen anytime soon. 

Fellow DC and Zack Snyder Fan @fionadcpositive on Vero, is helping with the petition and Zack Snyder himself liked the petition to get his director's cut! Keep sharing the petition wherever you can! #ZackSnyder #TomHolkenborg #JunkieXL #WarnerBros #BluRays #ManofSteel #BatmanvSupermanDawnofJustice #SuicideSquad #WonderWoman #JusticeLeague #Scores #Movies #MovieReview #DC #DCEU #BenAffleck #HenryCavill #GalGadot #JasonMomoa #EzraMiller #RayFisher #Petition #DirectorsCut #Score

Trailer For Jodie Foster’s BLACK MIRROR Season 4 Episode “Arkangel” – The Key To Good Parenting is Control

trailer-for-the-black-mirror-season-4-episode-arkangel-the-key-to-good-parenting-is-contro

Netflix has released a promo trailer for the Jodie Foster-directed episode of Black Mirror Season 4. The episode is called “Arkangel” and it stars Rosemarie DewittBrenna Harding (A Place to Call Home) and Bloodline‘s Owen Teague.

As you might expect, the episode looks intense! All we know about the story that “Arkangel” will tell so far is in this trailer. A mother’s daughter goes missing at a park briefly and she has a major panic attack like any mom would. But, this scare prompts her to take certain precautions, so she has something implanted into her child’s brain. I have no idea what this is going to do, but since this is Black Mirror, we know nothing good is going to come from it.

The tagline for the episode is, “The Key To Good Parenting is Control”, so whatever this is that’s implanted in her daughters head will give the mom more control over her daughter. Watch the trailer and tell us what how you think this story is going to play out! 

Video Supercut of AVENGERS Actors Being Killed in Horror Movies

Before the Avengers assembled in the MCU, the actors who played them met their horrific demise in previous horror films that they starred in. A video supercut has been put together by Films Against Humanity featuring the many different deaths of these actors.

Witness the deaths of Robert Downey Jr. in Natural Born Killers, Mark Ruffalo in Mirror Mirror 2: Raven Dance, James Spader in Wolf and The New Kid, Josh Brolin in Mimic, Samuel L. Jackson in Deep Blue Sea, Scarlett Johansson in Eight Legged Freaks, Jeremy Renner in 28 Weeks Later, Chris Evans in Sunshine, and Chris Hemsworth in Cabin in the woods.

As you’ll see they all die in a variety of ways. This is also a reminder that a few of these actors starred in some really bad movies in their acting careers. 

ROGUE ONE Star Ben Mendelsohn Wants To Play Doctor Doom and He Explains What Makes The Villain So Great

As you know, Fargo and Legion series creator Noah Hawley is currently developing a Doctor Doom movie for FOX. I’m sure there are a lot of actors out there that would be great to see play the Marvel villain, but there’s one actor that would be incredible as Victor Von Doom and that actor is Ben Mendelsohn

Mendelsohn played the villain in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the Netflix series Bloodline, he’s playing the villain in Steven Spielberg‘s Ready Player One, and he’s going to play the villain in Captain Marvel. The guy is an incredible actor and the fact that he actually wants to play Doctor Doom is awesome!

During a recent interview on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Mendelsohn talked about the character and explains what makes him one of the greatest comic book characters of all time:

“[He] is the greatest comic character of all time,” Mendelsohn said. “The thing that’s really appealing about Victor is the damage and trauma, the loss of the family, the wrong done to him, then the revenge and the takeover. Then it’s the protectiveness of Latveria wrapped in that Cold War vibe. What actually makes him great is his caring bit. That’s what’s great about Doctor Doom, and I just like him!”

While they were on the subject, Noah Hawley’s Doctor Doom film project was brought up and Mendelsohn was quick to let the host know that he well aware of the project saying, “Oh yeah, I’m aware of all this.”

It’s been previously revealed that Dan Stevens (Legion) is involved with the film project in some way, but we have no idea what his role in the project is at this point. Obviously, some fans speculate that he could end up playing Doctor Doom, but I’ll be honest, I like the idea of Mendelshon playing the character more. 

What do you think? Would you want to see Mendelson take on the role of Doctor Doom?

Official Photo Released of Joe Manganiello as Deadthstroke

official-photo-released-of-joe-manganiello-as-deadthstroke3

Joe Manganiello has shared the first official photo of Deathstroke from his surprising big screen debut in the post-credits scene of Justice League! This is our best image of the character that has been released yet. 

Deathstroke was originally supposed to appear in Ben Affleck‘s The Batman movie, but Warner Bros. recently announced that he will be getting a solo film. That solo film will most likely end up being directed by Gareth Evans (The Raid: Redemption, The Raid 2), which means this film is going to be ridiculously hardcore! I’m excited to see what he ends up doing with it!

The character was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez and he’s a mercenary and assassin who was genetically engineered to surpass all human limits, once a soldier, Slade Wilson now works as one of the most feared assassins in the DC Universe. He made his first appearance in The New Teen Titans #2 back in 1980.
