Thank you so much. I know it’s a controversial film, I really tired to make something different, with a look and voice of its own.
I took inspiration from the insanity of the original comics. Making a movie is a journey, not a straight line. I learned so much. People want what they want, and everyone has a personal version of how each character should look and walk and talk. If you set out to make a mass appear movie, it’s easy to end up with vanilla. But I went for it. And I know Squad has its flaws, Hell, the World knows it. Nothing hurts more than to pick up a newspaper and see a couple years of your blood, sweat and tears ripped to shreds. The hate game is strong out there.
The movie was wildly successful commercially. And the World got introduced into some very cool characters in the DC Universe. And that success is due exactly to the wonder and power of DC, of its characters. Would I do a lot of things different? Yep, for sure.
Wish I had a time machine. I’d make Joker the main villain and engineer a more grounded story. I have to take the good and bad and learn from it. I love making movies and I love DC. I’m a High School dropout and used to paint houses for a living. I’m so lucky to have the job I have. I have to give the characters the stories and plots they deserve next time. Real talk. (And no, there isn’t a secret edit of the film with a bunch of Joker scenes hidden in a salt mine somewhere.)
In addition to some cool motion posters, Netflix released a new traditional poster for The Defenders tonight. The Marvel show will be available to stream beginning August 18th.
The individual Twitter pages for each member of The Defenders have debuted a batch of cool new motion posters spotlighting the four heroes, along with another which assembles the team… There's no 'us' in team. #DEFEND pic.twitter.com/jOFJUyYilq — The Defenders (@TheDefenders) June 22, 2017

The first piece of big news is that the Venom movie starring Tom Hardy will feature Carnage! With rumors of an R-rating for that movie, Carnage is a great fit. And speaking of Spider-Man spinoffs, The Hollywood Reporter says that Sony is also working on movies for Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio.
The untitled “Star Wars” Han Solo spinoff has parted ways with directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. “Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways. A new director […]
Even Super Heroes need to take their driver’s test. But when Peter Parker goes to get his license, he gets more than he bargained for. Catch Spider-Man: Homecoming in theaters 7.7.17.
