Director David Ayer Blasts 2016’s ‘Suicide Squad’: “Not My Movie”

Early praise of James Gunn‘s upcoming The Suicide Squad has started drawing comparisons to director David Ayer‘s 2016 Suicide Squad. And Ayer has something to say about it. The director took to Twitter for a lengthy rebuttal, slamming Warner Brothers for dramatically changing his film. Ayer’s Turn In a single tweet with three images of text titled “My Turn,” Ayer described his struggles both in life and in making Suicide Squad. The tweet came in response to film critic Tim Grierson saying ...

‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Spoiler Review: There’s a Perfectly Decent Movie Buried in Here, Somewhere

Here’s the thing: I tried with all of my might to give Space Jam: A New Legacy a fair shake. I was a nine-year-old obsessed with both Michael Jordan and the Looney Tunes when the first Space Jam came out, and I loved it. I wanted to give the new sequel, starring LeBron James and directed by Malcom D. Lee, at least as much of a chance as I would have as a kid. It’s easy to be cynical and simply hate on things we find childish or silly, so I tried to abandon that. Unfortunately, Space Jam: A New ...

‘Mortal Kombat’ Featurette Explores the Making of the Video Game Movie: Here’s What We Learned

The 2021 Mortal Kombat movie ain’t perfect, but it has quite a bit going for it. The production design is incredible, the costumes are gorgeous, and quite a few of the special effects are seamless. While some of the special effects don’t quite mesh and the tonal inconsistencies can be jarring, when Mortal Kombat get something right, it really nails it. Warner Brothers released a 20-minute featurette, From Game to Screen: The Making of Mortal Kombat, that takes a deep dive into just how they mad...

‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Director Joseph Kosinski to Helm ‘Chariot,’ Based on the Sci-fi Graphic Novel

Tron: Legacy and Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski has a new project lined up and it sounds… well, weird and flashy and right up his alley. It’s called Chariot and it’s based on an AWA Comic of the same name. Warner Bros. nabbed the rights to the project described as a “fusion of True Romance and The Matrix.” Let that description sink in for a second. Now let me spice it up for you even more. The story of the comic centers around a vintage sports car that was built by the government...

James Gunn Shares the Songs That Didn’t Make It Into ‘The Suicide Squad’

The most memorable thing about David Ayer’s Suicide Squad was arguably its soundtrack album, which debuted in the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart in 2016 and went on to earn a Grammy nomination for its Collector’s Edition. The soundtrack patterned itself after the jukebox sensibility of Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1, which also reigned atop the Billboard Top Soundtracks chart for 11 weeks straight. For the standalone sequel/soft reboot The Suicide Squad, director James Gunn ...

‘Black Adam’ Will Introduce the DC Supervillain Group Intergang

Black Adam is bringing Dwayne Johnson into the big-screen world of DC Comics as the titular anti-hero who was granted powers by the wizard Shazam thousands of years ago. Joining him will be the superhero team known as Justice Society, but they won’t be the only DC Comics team making an appearance in the movie. According to Black Adam co-star Sarah Shahi, the supervillain team Intergang will be making their debut in Black Adam. Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, actress Sarah Shahi confirme...

New ‘Shazam! Fury of the Gods’ Set Photo Shows Off Battle-Damaged Suit

2019’s Shazam!, directed by David F. Sandberg, gave a whole new meaning to the idea that superheroes are for kids. Premised on the concept of a young Billy Batson (Asher Angel) receiving the power of the Old Gods whenever he says the word “Shazam” and transforming into Zachary Levi’s Shazam, the DCEU origin movie tapped into the power fantasies of superhero-loving kids everywhere. The latest set pictures taken during the filming of the sequel Shazam! Fury of the Gods!, however, suggest that sup...

‘Dune’ Star David Dastmalchian Says Script is “True to the Spirit of the Novel,” His Character “Not Like Any Human” Encountered Before

Dune may be one of our most anticipated pandemic-delayed movies currently on the calendar. Let’s put it this way: if vaunted filmmakers such as Alejandro Jodorowsky (whose planned project ultimately fell through, though that doesn’t mean he has any shortage of Dune opinions) and David Lynch (whose idiosyncratic 1984 film of the same name, love it or hate it, is set for a 4K release) found the appeal in adapting Frank Herbert’s touchstone novel, we should be on pins and needles to see what auteu...

‘The Suicide Squad’ Producer Charles Roven on How James Gunn Boarded the Supervillain Sequel [Interview]

It was always about that R-rating. James Gunn has proudly touted his no holds barred approach to The Suicide Squad, his highly anticipated follow-up to David Ayer’s 2016 film Suicide Squad. But with superhero films expanding their reach across all age demographics, it’s easy to think that Warner Bros. might have balked at Gunn letting loose with the gore and cursing. “It never became an issue,” The Suicide Squad producer Charles Roven told me in a phone interview. I spoke with the producer in a...

‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Clip Sends Bugs Bunny and LeBron James to the DC Universe

We’re just 10 days away from the release of the long-awaited Space Jam: A New Legacy, and the marketing campaign is settling in for its final lap before the film debuts. Today, Warner Bros. and DC released a new clip from the movie following Bugs Bunny and LeBron James as they travel into “DC World,” one of the many distinct planets found in the Warner 3000 Server-Verse that LeBron’s character gets sucked into. And as you might expect, LeBron is not thrilled about being the alter ego he inhabit...

Prepare for Polka-Dot Man to Become Your Favorite ‘The Suicide Squad’ Character [Set Visit]

Polka-Dot Man isn’t the first character you’d think of as being the scene-stealer of a big tentpole superhero movie. A punchline maybe, or an early victim of The Suicide Squad‘s apparently high body count. And yet, there’s something behind that absurd polka dot costume and David Dastmalchian‘s mopey look as he audibly yearns for death that stirs the heartstrings. Couple that with director James Gunn‘s penchant for turning the most obscure comic book characters into movie icons, and well, you’ve...

Why John Ostrander’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Run is Essential Reading Before James Gunn’s Movie [Set Visit]

Writer/director James Gunn‘s long-awaited comic book movie The Suicide Squad debuts one month from today, which gives comic fans plenty of time to brush up on some source material before seeing what Gunn has up his sleeve. One particular stretch of comics you should hone in on is writer John Ostrander‘s 66-issue run from 1987-1992, which helped modernize the team after their initial Silver Age appearance and served as a big creative inspiration for Gunn. Here’s how reading John Ostrander’s Suic...

James Gunn’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ is More Than Just DC’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ [Set Visit]

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, director James Gunn gave us the misfit team of cosmic criminals known as the Guardians of the Galaxy, and he gave them a rockin’ soundtrack too. Now the filmmaker is tackling another ragtag group of comic book characters with the DC Comics adaptation The Suicide Squad. Even though this film is guaranteed to give us plenty of comic book action and an assembly of morally questionable characters at the center of it, producer Peter Safran says The Suicide Squad wil...

‘The Suicide Squad’ is a Standalone Movie, But It Will Still Have Some DC Easter Eggs [Set Visit]

Back in 2016, the DC Extended Universe was quickly expanding and followed up their super-sized superhero clash Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with a possibly more exciting romp villain romp, Suicide Squad. It was a great move at the time — the trailer promised explosive fun and everyone loves the idea of a rogues gallery coming together to tackle greater evil and discover their heart! Or at least, everyone was supposed to love it. Instead, things went pretty off the rails and David Ayer’s S...

Yes, ‘The Suicide Squad’ Will Have Those James Gunn-Needledrops You Know and Love [Set Visit]

Any James Gunn fan knows just how integral a role the soundtrack plays in his movies. In 2014, Gunn announced himself to mainstream audiences and immediately set the tone with Redbone’s “Come and Get Your Love” blaring over the title card of Guardians of the Galaxy. A few short years later, he thoroughly outdid himself with the chaotic and frenzied opening credits of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, featuring the team battling an extradimensional monster set to the strains of Electric Light Orch...

‘The Suicide Squad’ is James Gunn’s Twist on ‘Dirty Dozen’ for the R-Rated Superhero Era [Set Visit Report]

If there was a way to physically walk into James Gunn‘s mind, the folks at the set of The Suicide Squad might have figured it out. Or at least, they put on a good show for me and the group of journalists who had the chance to visit the set of Warner Bros.’ latest DC comic book movie in Atlanta, Georgia in November 2019. But before we got to see the sets of The Suicide Squad, we were ushered into a generic conference room that looked like Gunn’s mind had thrown up all over it (if that analogy do...

‘Peacemaker’ First Look: John Cena’s ‘The Suicide Squad’ Character May or May Not Be the Hero of His Own HBO Max Series

James Gunn‘s The Suicide Squad hasn’t even been released yet, but that’s not stopping HBO Max from fully committing to a spin-off dedicated to one of the film’s misfits played by John Cena, Peacemaker. Now, Empire Magazine has provided a brand-new look at the anti-hero/villain-starring series, and the accompanying quotes by Gunn and Cena would seem to clarify exactly what viewers ought to be expecting when it comes to Peacemaker’s temperament. Their bluntness is kind of hilarious, honestly. Fir...

‘The Suicide Squad’ Star David Dastmalchian is Very Happy to Play “the Dumbest DC Character of All Time”

David Dastmalchian has been working for a while, but it feels like he’s on the cusp of truly blowing up. He was recently cast in Voyage of the Demeter, and this summer, he looks poised to steal the show as Polka-Dot Man in The Suicide Squad. During an interview on the Suicide Squad set, Dastmalchian talked about the role, revealing Polka-Dot Man’s tragic backstory. In addition to that, The Suicide Squad director James Gunn spoke about choosing the character, “the dumbest DC character of all tim...

David Dastmalchian Breaks Down His Comic Book Performances in ‘The Dark Knight,’ ‘Ant-Man’ and ‘The Suicide Squad’

The first comic book actor David Dastmalchian bought was Avengers #249, which was printed in 1984. He bought it when he was nine years old, and he still owns his copy, which features the storyline “The Snows of Summer.” The issue had the Avengers fighting demons in a global blizzard. It’s not an especially famous issue, but your first is your first. Years after collecting comics in Kansas and performing theater in Chicago, the true comic book fan and increasingly busy character actor got to bri...

‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ Clip: It’s Time to Slam Now, Whether You Like It or Not

At this point, you’ve probably decided whether or not Space Jam: A New Legacy is going to be your cup of tea. Fans of the original looking for nostalgia, Looney Tunes fans, and kids all have their reasons for wanting to see this sequel 26 years in the making. I just doubt those reasons included seeing Granny in a latex catsuit kicking a cop in the face or joking about her Twitter.

Here’s Why Harley Quinn’s Face Tattoo Was Removed for ‘The Suicide Squad’

When Jared Leto’s Joker showed up earlier this year in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, he was missing his face tattoo. You know, the one that left his chrome-mouthed visage emblazoned with the rather on-the-nose (technically, on-the-forehead) message: “Damaged.” It was there in 2016 in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, but the reaction to that and his overall look was mixed. Now, in James Gunn‘s 2021 follow-up, The Suicide Squad, it appears Joker’s emancipated ex, Harley Quinn, played by Margot Robbie,...

You can’t have a Looney Tunes movie without a few winks and nudges at other beloved pieces of pop culture.
