    Cara Delevingne's body was digitally slimmed for Suicide Squad

    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.

    Women spoke just 27 percent of the dialogue in 2016's top movies

    Following last week’s news of a drop in the number of female directors working in Hollywood, it’s emerged that actresses seem to getting a seriously raw deal when it comes to dialogue.

Data scientist Amber Thomas has published her findings on Medium.com’s FreeCodeCamp site, and they’re pretty damning.

    It’s a running joke throughout the none-more-meta superhero comedy that budget and contracts prevent Deadpool from interacting with his more A-list Marvel stablemates – Deadpool himself frequently references X-Men that Fox didn’t allow us to see. Yes, the same turbine-powered mobile aircraft carrier as used by the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D.. Fox weren’t allowed to reference the carrier by name, and the design had to be tweaked a little, but ‘Deadpool’ visual artist Emmanuel Shiu confirmed the connection.

Rumoured earlier this year, even before the release of ‘Suicide Squad’, the Australian actress has now signed a ‘first look’ deal with Warner Bros, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
