Last year’s ‘Suicide Squad’ was a talking point for many reasons – and now it’s notched up another. In a gif that’s been cut together from a behind-the-scenes featurette, you can clearly see that the actress’s waist has been narrowed to appear what they deem more aesthetically pleasing to viewers. Positive body image is considered an important ethical trait in 2017, with TV shows and movies often slammed if they fail to promote all body types and attempt to exclude bodies that aren’t stick-thin.
The biggest talking point among people who have seen ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ is undoubtedly the return of Grand Moff Tarkin and how it was achieved. Peter Cushing played the character in 1977’s ‘A New Hope’ but sadly died in 1994 at the age of 81.

By Nate Jones/Vulture In Ant-Man’s opening scene, Michael Douglas’s Hank Pym strides into S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters to tender his resignation. Well, that’s not 100 percent right — it’s definitely Hank Pym, and it’s definitely S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters, but it’s not quite Michael Douglas, at least as we know him in 2015. The scene takes place in 1989, and the Douglas that walks into the room is the spitting image of the actor during his Wall Street and Fatal Attraction days. We were lucky enough to talk to Trent Claus of Lola VFX, the company that de-aged Douglas for Marvel, to learn the scene’s secrets.
