I’ll give this one a chance when I see the trailer.
Despite the negative critical reaction to 2016’s Suicide Squad, most fans and critics agreed that Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn was one of the best characters in the DC universe so far. There have been numerous rumors about what movie we’ll see the character in next, but last month it was reported that the spin-off focusing on the all-female Birds of Prey team was moving forward. Now Robbie has revealed more details about the project.
In an interview with Collider, Robbie stated that it was important for Harley to stay part of a group. “I pitched the idea of an R-rated girl gang film including Harley, because I was like, ‘Harley needs friends,'” she said. “Harley loves interacting with people, so don’t ever make her do a standalone film. She’s got to be with other people, it should be a girl gang. I wasn’t seeing enough girl gangs on screen, especially in the action space. So that was always a big part of it.”
The Birds of Prey movie will be directed by Cathy Yan, who will be the second woman to direct a DC film, after Wonder Woman’s Patty Jenkins, as well as the first female Asian director to tackle a big-budget superhero movie. Robbie herself requested that the director be a woman, and explained how important it was to give “a female director the chance to do big budget stuff.”
She continued: “They always get, ‘Here’s the tiny little film.’ I was like, ‘I love action. I love action films. I’m a girl. What, are we meant to only like a specific thing?’ So it was a hugely important to find a female director for this, if possible. But at the end of the day–male, female–the best director gets the job and Cathy was the best director.”

“The world at large has been on tenterhooks, depleting the world’s supply of Szechuan Sauce and wearing out the novelty of shouting “Pickle Rick,” waiting for word from Adult Swim about when we’d finally be getting the fourth season of Rick and Morty, easily one of the best and funniest shows on television. After its not-cliffhanger ending of season 3 back in October, 2017, both audiences and creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon were left waiting to hear if the show would even get picked up for more. Finally, on May 10, 2018, the world got its answer: not only will there be more Rick and Morty, there will be at least 70 more episodes.”
Thanos, the big purple baddie of Avengers: Infinity War, officially arrives in Fortnite today.
The official, Marvel-sponsored crossover between the biggest movie on the planet and the hottest game on the planet sees Thanos arrive as a playable character – if you find his Infinity Gauntlet.
The gauntlet will drop to the ground via a meteor (yes, another one) at the start of a match. Pick it up and you’ll transform into Thanos and gain super powers.
You’ll be able to punch to knock enemies back and destroy structures, pull off a devastating ground pound, fire a damage-over-time energy blast and super-jump to great heights. Additionally, Thanos has a regenerating shield and doesn’t take fall damage.
The trade-off? You won’t be able to build, use weapons or items such as launch pads. According to Epic’s patch notes, Thanos “has no need for such petty human devices”.
Should Thanos be killed, the Infinity Gauntlet will drop for someone else to pick up.

“We were doing a scene and he was trying to stay out of the way, but he did lean over and he said, ‘You know what Han would really do there?’” Howard recalled on The Late Show Thursday night. “I said, ‘What?’ And he told me the joke, he gave me a little joke. And I said [to the crew], ‘Hey, guess what? Here’s what we’re gonna do in the next take.’ So I know when I hear a good idea.”

“George R.R. Martin is confirming what Game of Thrones fans have increasingly suspected: The long-awaited sixth book in his A Song of Ice and Fire saga, The Winds of Winter, will not be out in 2018 (here are some of the best fan reactions to this news).
The author revealed the decision in a press release announcing a publication date for Fire and Blood, his upcoming history of the Targaryens which has clocked in at a massive 989 pages long.
“No, winter is not coming… not in 2018, at least,” Martin wrote. “You’re going to have to keep waiting for The Winds of Winter. You will, however, be able to return to Westeros this year. I do want to stress… indeed, I want to shout… that Fire and Blood is not a novel. This is not a traditional narrative and was never intended to be… let’s call this one ‘imaginary history’ instead. The essential point being the ‘history’ part. I love reading popular histories myself, and that’s what I was aiming for here … (Though there are enough stories here for twenty novels. Battles, bloodshed, betrayals, love, lust, horror, religious wars, politics, incest, historical revisionism, all the fun stuff) .… As for me, I’m returning once again to The Winds of Winter.””

STOCKHOLM – April 11, 2018 – Paradox Interactive and Harebrained Schemes today released the final installment in their BATTLETECH Basics video series, exploring the games story of noble politics and betrayal among the stars. The first turn-based tactical ‘Mech PC game in over 20 years, BATTLETECH will be available on April 24, 2018.
“BATTLETECH is Game of Thrones meets Pacific Rim in space,” said Mitch Gitelman, studio manager at Harebrained Schemes. “[Kamea] hires you to do the types of jobs that her standing army can’t do.”
“That is within the context of your larger campaign, of reputation building and working for all the different houses… It’s a wonderful way to get a true, classic BATTLETECH story,” said Jordan Weisman, CEO of Harebrained Schemes and creator the MechWarrior and BATTLETECH universe. “This really opens it up for the player to extend their own story of their mercenary unit, in whichever direction they want to go.”
Developed by Harebrained Schemes, the studio responsible for the critically acclaimed Shadowrun Returns series, BATTLETECH is the next generation of turn-based tactical ‘Mech combat. In BATTLETECH, you play as the commander of a mercenary company on the edges of civilized space, negotiating and executing a variety of combat contracts while attempting to keep your ‘Mechwarriors happy and your operations prosperous. The game’s story features the player falling in with the deposed ruler of a noble house and, fighting for either coin or cause, becoming a player in her bid to retake her throne. BATTLETECH will be available for PC and Mac, at a suggested retail price of $39.99. Linux will be added post-launch.
“It’s knights and nobility, except instead of knights, it’s giant war machines,” said Mike McCain, game director of BATTLETECH.
