There’s a lot of things about David Ayer’s Suicide Squad movie that seem pretty goofy, like Jared Leto’s method acting approach to playing his scuzzy street thug version of the Joker. But Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn looks downright delightful, and it appears that she had an equally delightful day on set for her birthday, as the cast and crew of the upcoming film gave her a very comic book appropriate birthday cake.
One of the most interesting parts of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will be the introduction of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. Before the hero gets her very own solo adventure, we’ll see her alongside Batman and Superman as they brood at each other and duke it out. But how big is Gadot’s part in the film, exactly? Director Zack Snyder is promising some big things.
Well this is kind of a bummer. It’s been reported for some time that Marvel was considering Selma director Ava DuVernay to helm their Black Panther film (other reports suggested they were also considering her for Captain Marvel). DuVernay herself recently added to the speculation with a tweet referencing the superhero, while Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed that he had met with the director and would have an announcement by the end of July.
Marvel has released the final trailer for Ant-Man following the reveal of the first in a planned series of viral videos connecting Scott Lang to the larger MCU. Hopefully when the next video hits next week, we’ll have a bit more to go on, but until then we have the final official trailer for Marvel’s latest superhero adventure — and it looks pretty fun.
Yesterday we got an awesome new look at Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, in one of the most faithful costumes for a comic book movie we’ve ever seen. Following that photo, 20th Century Fox has released two more of the Merc With the Mouth, and in one of them he’s not alone — he’s joined by his super-powered pal, Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
By all superficial appearances, Ant-Man pretty much looks like a standalone Marvel film — but the newest hero of the MCU will be making an appearance in Captain America: Civil War, and it’s all but certain that Marvel has plans for Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang further down the line in Phase 3. A new viral video begins establishing those connections with the reappearance of a minor Marvel character.
We haven’t seen a trailer for Deadpool yet, but with Comic-Con fast approaching, we expect that will change very soon. What we do have is a new image of Ryan Reynolds in costume as the “merc with a mouth” and even those who aren’t fond the character have to be impressed. This is the first time a movie superhero has literally looked essentially identical to his comic-book counterpart.
As revealed yesterday, Batman vs. Superman will have a major presence at Comic-Con. The entire cast will be there to show off new footage from the film, and if rumors are to believed, we’ll also have the new Justice League assembled on stage. But, if you aren’t going to Comic-Con this year (or you simply can’t wait another week), we have some good news for you: Warner Bros. has released five new Batman vs. Superman photos for your viewing pleasure.
Now that Magic Mike XXL has been unleashed in theaters, we’re all moving on to Channing Tatum’s next big project: Gambit. The X-Men superhero’s solo movie was one we never thought could reasonably happen, especially after the horror of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. But we’re in a new, better X-Men era, and Tatum — along with his producing partner Reid Carolin — are giving us even more hope with their latest update on the film.
With Marvel sitting out Comic-Con 2015, everyone assumed that Warner Bros. would use this opportunity to make a big splash at Comic-Con with their Justice League universe. Today, as Warner Bros. officially announced their Comic-Con plans and confirmed those suspicions with news on their Batman vs. Superman panel, which superheroes will be attending and promises of “unexpected offerings”.
