Report- Suicide Squad to Feature a Love Triangle

EGP Website Article Image 595

DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad film may be centred on a group of villains, but even villains need love. A new report (which includes a quote from the film’s director David Ayer) suggests that Suicide Squad will have a love triangle in the midst of the action.

The report stemmed from comments by Ayer indicating that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn will be inspired by current takes on the character, including the New 52 comics and Batman Assault on Arkham- an animated film released last year. Both show a Harley Quinn that is not just The Joker’s sidekick.

Ayer is quoted as saying the following:

“It’s about her breaking free of The Joker and becoming this fully actualised, independent person. That really is a metaphor for everyone’s journey here.”

Instead, Harley will be getting close to Will Smith’s Deadshot (just like the New 52 and Assault on Arkham). Smith is quoted as saying the following:

“Harley is the biggest troublemaker, but Deadshot’s actually eyeballing her a little bit. There’s a pretty ragged romantic triangle there.”

Suicide Squad is scheduled to be released on August 5th, 2016.

Confirmed- Indiana Jones Will Not be Re-Cast for Indiana Jones 5

EGP Website Article Image 589

Indiana Jones producer Frank Marshall has confirmed that Indiana Jones won’t be re-cast for the next film in the series. Marshall is quoted as saying the following:

“We’re not doing the Bond thing where we’re going to call somebody else Indiana Jones… we have to figure this out.”

In fact, Marshall also admitted that the creative team hasn’t even really started discussing the fifth instalment yet:

“There are a lot of rumours. We haven’t even sat down to talk about Indy yet… at some point we’ll sit down. But there’s a bunch of people who could probably take the baton.”

Before anyone asks, by saying ‘take the baton’ he could indicate that a new character will take over the franchise after Indiana Jones. It does not imply a re-casting of the iconic character.
