Will Smith went big for his 50th birthday today, bungee jumping out of a helicopter live on YouTube, but before he did, the Suicide Squad star opened up about the possibility of returning as Floyd Lawton aka Deadshot in his own standalone movie.

When asked by a fan whether or not there would be a Deadshot movie, Smith dished on having meetings with the studio for the project:

“I hope so, I love playing Deadshot. I’m really enjoying that character. They’ve been talking about it. If a good idea comes around… we’ve been having meetings but I would love to. I love Deadshot.”

Smith is currently expected to return for the Suicide Squad sequel alongside Margot Robbie and Jared Leto. Plot details remain under wraps.

The Accountant director Gavin O’Connor is set to write and direct the film, with Todd Stashwick and David Bar Katz co-writing the script as well. Charles Roven will produce the DC Universe follow-up with Michael De Luca producing the project under his Michael De Luca Productions banner.

The Suicide Squad sequel is one of the many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC Films, including Birds of Prey, The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Supergirl, New Gods, Nightwing, a Deathstroke film, and a Joker origin movie set outside of the DCEU.

Ben Affleck is looking to get in Batman shape…but it’s probably not for the movie you want.

Ben Affleck’s will he or won’t he relationship with Batman is at an all-time high. Hot off the heels of the news that Warner Bros is loving Matt Reeves’ Script and that they’re looking to start filming as soon as summer 2019, it appears that Ben Affleck is getting ready to get back in shape and he’s bringing in The Batman as motivation. Batfleck has recently had a few pieces of workout equipment delivered and in a new picture of his home gym, it looks like he’s had a statue of the Batman v Superman version of his caped crusader installed. You can check it out below.

Toby Emmerich and Kevin Tsujihara recently visited Affleck at home after a brief stint in rehab and Affleck seems to be doing well. While the reason for the visit is unknown, it doesn’t seem to be Batman related. As we all know it’s been rumored that Ben Affleck would be departing the role for months, so it isn’t probable that he’s getting in shape for that role. In all likelihood, Affleck is just using the statue as motivation to get himself back in the best shape of his life for his next film The Has-Been which begins filming in October.

Are you excited to see Matt Reeves’ take on the Caped Crusader? Would you like Ben Affleck to return? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Details on the story for The Batman are currently under wraps, though the project is rumored to be centered on a younger Caped Crusader and Matt Reeves confirmed that it will not be based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic.

The Batman is one of the many projects currently being developed by Warner Bros. and DC Films, including The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Birds of Prey, Black Adam, Cyborg, Black Adam, Supergirl, New Gods, Nightwing, a Deathstroke film, and a Joker origin movie set outside of the DCEU.

Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news  The Batman and all DC upcoming projects!

Marvel fans aren’t the only ones hoping to see Venom as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Tom Hardy himself is hoping to see his version of the anti-hero appear alongside The Avengers.

Speaking with MTV International, Hardy defended the film’s PG-13 rating as he explained that he’d like to see Venom play in the same sandbox as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes:

“My littlest ones, they watch Spider-Man and Venom quite comfortably…so it’s not like they’re scared by him. At the same time, there’s a lot within the real estate that you can actually imbue with a complete sense of gratuitous violence, and if you wanted to I think you’ve got the right people for that job if you want to push, because that’s where I’d love to go, and I’d love to go through all of the Avengers as well with him, but that’s above my pay grade.”

Hardy went on to add that he has no problem with Venom remaining as a Spider-Man spin-off as there’s more than enough characters to explore under the Lethal Protector’s umbrella:

“We’re more than happy to standalone. We have a Venomverse and 900 characters to play with. But  I think there’s a little bit… I want to run with the established family, why not?”

Are you going to see the film on its opening weekend? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Venom follows Eddie Brock as he attempts to revive his journalism career by investigating the Life Foundation only to come into with an alien symbiote that bonds with him, granting him powers and transforming him into the titular anti-hero.

Directed by Ruben Fleischer from a script by Jeff Pinkner & Scott Rosenberg and Kelly Marcel, the film stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, Reid Scott, Jenny Slate, Ron Cephas Jones, and Woody Harrelson.

Venom hits theaters on October 5, 2018. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Sony’s Universe of Spider-Man characters as we learn it.

Rosario Dawson could be finished in the Netflix corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Dawson has been a mainstay of the Marvel Netflix shows, appearing as the Night Nurse herself, Claire Temple, since they first hit the streaming service, appearing in every series including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders with the exception of The Punisher and the second season of Iron Fist. But Dawson could be on her way out, in fact, her final scene in the second season of Marvel’s Luke Cage may have been her last.

Speaking on a panel at the 2018 Tribeca TV fest last weekend, Dawson detailed the scene which featured Luke and Claire breaking up as she revealed she actually helped write the script:

“I felt really grateful because Cheo Hodari Coker was the showrunner, and it was kind of looking like, at least for that season, who knows if I’ll come back again? This was looking like it was going to be a big final scene for Claire, and it was really as a culmination of three years and being on five different shows.”

Dawson went on to explain how she evolved the scene once she got involved with redeveloping it:

“When the scene was first written, to be honest, it was a little bit more written on his side and his storyline and that kind of stuff. And I approached Cheo and had the audacity of adding some lines and rewriting some stuff and asked him if that could work.”

This isn’t the first time Dawson’s exit from the Marvel franchise has come up as the actress previously made headlines when she first teased that she may not return in May at MCM Comic Con in London. Dawson added how important it was for the scene to also represent Claire’s side, explaining that “out of the instinct of knowing that after five different shows this was probably going to be at least for now a kind of goodbye for Claire. I wanted it to really honor this journey I’ve had with her, and what she’s been and what she’s stood for, and what she means to a lot of people.”

The Netflix corner of the MCU is set to continue next month with the highly-anticipated third season of Marvel’s Daredevil.

Daredevil Season 3 stars Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Jay Ali, Wilson Bethel, Joanne Whalley, and Vincent D’Onofrio.

Daredevil Season 3 hits Netflix October 19, 2018.

Get Out and Sorry to Bother You star Lakeith Stanfield has recreated the test footage of Joaquin Phoenix as the Joker.

Last year, actor and rapper Lakeith Stanfield expressed his desire to play the Joker by reaching out to Martin Scorsese on Twitter back when the filmmaker was attached to project as a producer. While Joaquin Phoenix was ultimately cast as the Joker in the origin film, Lakeith Stanfield has recreated the test footage director Todd Phillips released that first revealed Phoenix in full makeup as the DC  villain. Posted on his official Instagram account, Lakeith Stanfield did the makeup on his own and even included the song “Laughing” by The Guess Who.

You can check out the photo in the post below!

A post shared by Lakeith Stanfield (@lakeithstanfield3) on Sep 25, 2018 at 11:43am PDT

Do you think Lakeith Stanfield would have been a good choice to play the Joker? Are you excited to see this new take on the DC villain from Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

“Joker” centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips’ exploration of Arthur Fleck (Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.

Directed by Todd Phillips from a script he co-wrote with Scott Silver, Joker stars Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brett Cullen, Glenn Fleshler, Douglas Hodge, Marc Maron, Josh Pais, and Shea Whigham.

Joker will be released in theaters on October 4, 2019.

X-Men star James McAvoy has offered to once again play a young Patrick Stewart in the new Star Trek series about Jean-Luc Picard.

Yesterday, Sir Patrick Stewart shared the first photo of the creative team behind the upcoming Star Trek series about Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The photo was met with a lot of enthusiasm from fans who are eager to see the Star Trek: The Next Generation hero return to the small screen, but one comment on the Instagram version of the photo also caught the attention of Trekkies. X-Men star James McAvoy responded to the photo by posting a comment in which he offered to play young Picard in flashback scenes:

“Need a flashback guy???? Just saying @sirpatstew I’ve got previous experience and will work for autographs.”

Of course, few need to be reminded that James McAvoy currently portrays the young version of Patrick Stewart’s Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men films.

The new show is being developed for CBS All Access and is expected to follow Jean-Luc Picard 20 years after the events of the character’s previous adventure in Star Trek: Nemesis. The series is expected to premiere in 2019.

Suicide Squad director Davi Ayer has addressed an inconsistency in the DC Extended Universe timeline involving Robin’s death at the hands of the Joker.

After it was confirmed that Jared Leto’s Joker has the grill because Batman knocked his teeth out after the Clown Prince of Crime murdered Robin, fans noticed an inconsistency in the DC Extended Universe timeline. In Suicide Squad, the Joker clearly has the grill during one of his first meetings with Dr. Harleen Quinzel at Arkham Asylum and the future Harley Quinn’s character bio states that she was an accomplice to Robin’s murder, meaning the Joker had his grill before killing the Boy Wonder. Now, director David Ayer has confirmed that the timeline of events was changed after Suicide Squad was finished filming.

You can check out David Ayer’s comment in the post below!

The timeline was changed later after filming. https://t.co/5beQALHXYE
