6 Villains Who Better Be In The Suicide Squad


Sorry, Avengers. And no offense, Justice League. But nowadays, villains move the needle on major superhero tentpole pictures. Sony is hard at work on a Sinister Six project. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would rather play Black Adam than Shazam. And Warner Bros. just dropped the hammer on a gestating Suicide Squad feature, with David Ayer (Sabotage, Fury) possibly directing. Sometimes, being bad is very good. The Suicide Squad has been in business since 1959, operating as a band of antiheroes recruited by the United States government to complete covert, Black Ops missions in return for commuted prison sentences.

10 Big Differences Between The Maze Runner Book And Movie


The Maze Runner book offers a fast-paced introduction to a dystopian society written by James Dashner. It’s a book that relies on spending time in its main characters head, and it thrives on creating a puzzle for its characters, asking viewers to guess and wonder why The Glade exists and why a group of misfit boys have been placed in its strange and horrifying environment. Wes Ball’s The Maze Runner asks the same questions and requires the same commitment from its audience, creating an energetic and mystery-ridden world in which answers are not readily forthcoming or …

Why Paul Rudd And Justin Long Were Terrified Of Playing The Beatles


Justin Long has revealed that he was petrified when he was cast as George Harrison of The Beatles in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. This is despite the fact that Long’s Harrison, Paul Rudd’s John Lennon, Jack Black’s Paul McCartney and Jason Schwartzman’s Ringo Starr were only a small part of the 2007 comedy, which documented the absurd life of John C. Reilly’s 1950’s rock-and-roller, and drew heavily on the plot of the Johnny Cash biopic, Walk The Line. Long even admitted during a Reddit Q&A to …

Seth Rogen Is Assembling A Comedy All-Star Team


Between This Is The End, Superbad and Neighbors, Seth Rogen has essentially built an army of fiercely funny folk. And quite a few of these are reassembling for a promising new comedy.

This Is What Ang Lee’s Hulk 2 Was Going To Be About


There has been a lot of chatter online regarding the Hulk, and how the mighty member of Marvel’s Avengers needs another standalone movie, this time with Mark Ruffalo shouldering the load of Bruce Banner and his angry alter ego. Given the amount of times Marvel tried to get Hulk off the ground, though, you can understand why they are a little gun shy.

This Is The Woman Hollywood Says Is Beautiful Enough To Play King Arthur’s Guinevere


In the numerous versions of King Arthur’s legend, there’s always been a couple of factors that remain consistent. One such factor is that Arthur’s queen, Guinevere, has always been played by an actress that fits the bill as one of the most beautiful (and talented) actresses on the scene. Vanessa Redgrave, Keira Knightley, Julia Ormond, and Lena Headey have all been previous incarnations of the fabled queen, and now Astrid Berges Frisbey is the latest actress who has the honor to play the queen of Camelot for Guy Richie’s King Arthur upcoming franchise.
