    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.

    DC may fast-track another movie to fill The Batman's 2018 slot

    It’s little secret that the DC Extended Universe, the Warner Bros-owned comic company’s attempt at a rival to the mighty Marvel Cinematic Universe, is struggling.

This means that, at present, the only DC movie lined up for release in 2018 is ‘Aquaman.’ However, it has emerged that the studio are contemplating filling the gap left by ‘The Batman’ by accelerating the development process on one of their planned films.

    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. Despite high-profile leading roles for the likes of Margot Robbie in ‘Suicide Squad’, Ellen DeGeneres in ‘Finding Dory’ and Felicity Jones in ‘Rogue One’, the trend is still very much in favour of men getting the lion’s share of the lines. Data scientist Amber Thomas has published her findings on Medium.com’s FreeCodeCamp site, and they’re pretty damning.

    Margot Robbie Confirmed To Produce And Star In Harley Quinn Spin-Off

    It looks like that spin-off Harley Quinn movie with Margot Robbie is go. 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. It will have helped no end that ‘Suicide Squad’, despite its terrible reviews, has raked in the cash for Warner Bros – it currently stands at a $701 million gross worldwide.
