‘Suicide Squad 2’ Plot Focuses on Deadshot, Draws on Classic ’80s Comic Run

When Will Smith left James Gunn‘s Suicide Squad sequel, there was some question of whether or not a new actor would replace him, or if Smith’s character Deadshot would be cut. The answer came quickly, when Idris Elba took over the part. Now, we might know why. Early Suicide Squad 2 plot details reveal that Deadshot is a central figure in Gunn’s script, and that the story is drawing heavily from a classic 1980s comic run from Jon Ostrander and Kim Yale. Will Smith is a big star, but his Deads...

‘Captain Marvel’ never quite takes flight

“Captain Marvel” isn’t a bad movie, exactly. It seems, at this point, that Marvel’s moviemaking machinery is incapable of producing a genuinely terrible film. There’s no “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” or “Suicide Squad” in the Marvel filmography, just “Thor: The Dark World,” “Ant-Man” and “Doctor Strange” — movies that are fine but forgettable. Still, I wanted more than that for “Captain Marvel,” and I suspect that I’m not alone. That’s because after 20 films, Marvel Studios is fina...
