Here is an update to the recent article about Cathy Yan being tapped to helm the upcoming “Birds Of Prey” based film and why it subsequently pushed back other films such as the sequel to Suicide Squad, Gotham City Sirens and the Harley Quinn and Joker spinoff film.

According to Variety’s Justin Kroll, the execs where so impressed with screenwriter Christina Hodson’s script that Birds of Prey moved up many notches. With Hodson also penning the script for Batgirl, they felt it was a PERFECT way to introduce the character to the film world.

Black Adam in the “Suicide Squad”?

For the past week  there has been so much talk about New Line Cinema & DC’S “SHAZAM!”. From who will play the titular character and his youthful counterpart to who will potentially be his nemesis. But the question has constantly come up about SHAZAM’s greatest opponent Black Adam & where would he fit in with the film.

Well we all know that Dwayne Johnson is set to be Black Adam in an upcoming solo film that does not include the aforementioned SHAZAM. But now we may be finding out where he is making his debut.

Now according to an exclusive from The Wrap, the plot of Suicide Squad 2 will revolve around “members of Suicide Squad [who are] tasked with tracking down a weapon of mass destruction.” That weapon is apparenty…. you guessed it …..or maybe you didn’t Black Adam.

So this shouldn’t come a too much of a shock. Because Johnson himself teased a surprise introduction for the villain earlier this year, when he told Fandango: “We have a really cool surprise for Black Adam that I can’t reveal, in terms of where we will see Black Adam being introduced.” Granted he didn’t say much but he kinda told us it would be in another movie before his own solo film.

Even though Suicide Squad 2, doesn’t have a set release date yet it’s expected to begin early 2018.
Are you pumped up for this potential cameo or would just rather see Black Adam in SHAZAM?
