Hero Blend #42: How Suicide Squad Can Expand The DC Cinematic Universe
Though Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has quite the packed cast – featuring the likes of Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, and more – it’s David Ayer’s Suicide Squad that could wind up challenging it as the most star-studded superhero movie of 2016.

Suicide Squad Is Targeting These A-Listers
The upcoming DC Comics movie Suicide Squad is kind of a strange inclusion to the company's slate when you consider the other films that were announced around it. After all, it's the only one that puts the spotlight on villains instead of heroes, and is the only "group" movie outside of the twin Justice League projects.

The Sexy Focus Trailer Lets Will Smith Be Seduced By Mrs. Wolf Of Wall Street
“There’s two kinds of people in this world. There’s hammers. And there’s nails. You decide which one you want to be.” That’s the advice dished out in the sleek, sexy first trailer for Will Smith’s Focus.

The Strange Story Of How An iPhone Salesman Just Rebooted I Am Legend
It turns out that Warner Bros has Apple to thank for the fact that their long-touted addition to the I Am Legend franchise has now been greenlit - at least in a vague indirect way. That's because Gary Graham, who has written the screenplay for the upcoming last-man-on-earth reboot, was working at one of the company’s store when he wrote and then uploaded his script to the Black List website, probably using one of those very same Apple products.

Alec Baldwin Joining Mission: Impossible 5
Baldwin will be playing the head of the CIA, who Variety claims is in charge of overseeing Ethan Hunt's (Tom Cruise) IMF operations from on-high. No plot details are being shared for the upcoming blockbuster, but Baldwin's just too good to float through a role as a “higher-up.” This role has “traitor/mole” written all over it.

Math Claims Only 3 Actors Are Capable Of Increasing Box Office Grosses
Once upon a time, Hollywood was filled with actors and actresses who could slap their names on a movie poster and almost guarantee success. That star power has lessened over the years. We can all agree on that. Exactly how much is still a matter of fierce debate, but if one hot and trendy new algorithm can be relied upon, the answer is almost none at all.

Will Smith In Talks To Star In Ridley Scott-Produced NFL Concussion Drama
Smith would play Doctor Bennett Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist who became the first person to discover Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy in a football player's brain. CTE, as it's known, is a degenerative disease caused by severe trauma to the head that can only be discovered after death.

Will Smith Drops Out Of Sci-Fi Franchise-Starter Brilliance
Universal intends to march ahead with a new leading man to team with Noomi Rapace, with a fourth quarter 2015 or first quarter 2016 release date planned. The little known Onah is also still in place, though Smith's departure leaves this film at a bit of a standstill. You don't really make something this derivative unless you have a big star, which despite some recent disappointments, Smith still is.

Will Smith Won't Be Back For Independence Day 2
For the past few months, the biggest question hanging over the upcoming sequel to Independence Day was whether or not Will Smith would be coming back to star as Captain Steven Hiller.

Will Smith Still Attached To D.J. Caruso's Supernatural Thriller Selling Time
Big-budget supernatural thrillers are not films that Hollywood handles with any sort of consistency, and it’s a wonder they continue doing it. But money is money, and director D.J. Caruso will head back to that style of flashy filmmaking following a dip into calmer waters with 2013’s YA novel adaptation Standing Up.

The Muppets Screenwriter Hired To Rewrite Adam McKay's Uptown Saturday Night Remake
In Uptown Saturday Night, the two leads sneak out of their homes over to a snazzy nightclub of the illegal variety. (Psst. It’s got women in it.) A robbery occurs while they’re there and they have to track down their wallets. Funny stuff ensues, but not quite hilarity. I have no doubt that McKay and Stoller are the perfect pair to deliver solid laughs, but are Washington and Smith the right pair to pull it off?

Will Smith And Director Shawn Levy Team For Ocean-Spanning Adventure City That Sails
Have you ever loved someone so much that you changed cities to be with them? There’s a good chance you may have, but did you ever actually move a city across an ocean in order to do it? If not, that’s because you’re no Will Smith. The actor has long been attached to the 20th Century Fox fantasy adventure City That Sailed, which is now apparently sailing towards reality with high concept director extraordinaire Shawn Levy.

Will Smith Might Be In Independence Day 2 After All
Keep in mind that Emmerich is once again doing promotional duties for White House Down, this time in Australia, and is probably working extra hard after the movie flopped in the United States. This is a man who has destroyed the White House three times on film-- do you really put it past him to drop a possibly fictitious hint about Will Smith for the sake of getting us to talk about his movie again? I sure don't.

Will Smith Will Train Margot Robbie In The Art Of Conning In Focus
The cast of the crime drama Focus has been a revolving door for over a year now, but the spinning seems to have finally come to an end. Variety reports that newcomer Margot Robbie is in early talks to star opposite Will Smith in the film, from Crazy Stupid Love co-writers and co-directors John Requa and Glen Ficarra.

Independence Day 2 Can't Afford Will Smith, But More Familiar Faces Will Return
But don't start getting concerned that he's totally averse to big names appearing. In addition to the promised return of Bill Pullman as (now) ex-President Thomas Whitmore, Emmerich says about half of the characters in the current script are familiar from the first film, while half of them are new. Of course, one of those familiar characters could easily be Smith's stepson

Sandra Bullock Could Be Miss Hannigan In The New Annie
Alright, maybe little girls spend more fantasizing about planning Annie someday, but for adult actresses, the pickings don't get much better than Miss Hannigan. The blowsy, funny, washed-up drunk who's put in charge of a girl's orphanage, Miss Hannigan gets many of the best songs in Annie, nearly all of the good lines, and is the rare part in musical theater: a really, really good one for a woman who's not under 30

Will Smith Has No Interest In Men In Black 4
It should be noted that Smith gave these comments at an After Earth junket prior to the movie under-performing at the box office. Maybe the low number for Smith’s collaboration with M. Night Shyamalan will change his mind? Because we all know that actors love running back to the safety net of a proven franchise when they experience a bomb. Smith might reconsider Men In Black 4 if his ego’s badly bruised.

Sci-Fi, Space, And Staying In The Moment: Talking After Earth With Will And Jaden Smith
A couple weeks ago I flew out to Las Cruses, New Mexico and after a short helicopter ride into the middle of the desert landed at the Virgin Galactic Spaceport. While I didn’t get the chance to take a trip into the stratosphere, I did sit down with stars Will and Jaden Smith to talk about their new movie.

it seems he's starting to up his game. In addition to having After Earth due out this summer - now one week earlier than previously thought - he has Akiva Goldsman's Winter's Tale in the works and just this week added the crime/romance Focus to his slate. And now it appears two more projects are on his radar.

Will Smith Possibly In, Kristen Stewart Definitely Out Of Crime Romance Focus
Nothing about that reads Will Smith, so let’s hope Warner Bros. is in the field of changing people’s minds with this one. Smith is still a probably a bigger financial draw in most kinds of films than either Gosling or Affleck, but this is the time for his acting skills to kick back in.
