Harley Quinn and Killer Croc from 'Suicide Squad' are heading for a TV show.
'Suicide Squad' characters are set to make an appearance in 'Gotham'.
TV producers are clearly keen to ride the wave of the DC comic adaptations' recent success as they have revealed they plan to introduce both Harley Quinn and Killer Croc into the series that first aired in 2014.

The series producers have teased that a future season could see the introduction of Harley Quinn.
Fox’s ‘Gotham’ has already introduced us to The Penguin, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, but there’s two prominent villains who haven't yet showed up on the Batman origin series, Harley Quinn and The Joker. While The Joker has long been teased and speculated upon, since the release of Suicide Squad fans have been left wondering wether his accomplice Harley Quinn will ever make an appearance.
Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad
Speaking at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, executive producer John Stephens teased her possible introduction. “Perhaps not this season but in times to come,” he said. “A lot of those [DC Comics] characters, because they're in Suicide Squad, you're not going to be seeing them this season.

DC Comics' villains team up for an overcrowded action movie that never quite finds its tone. Writer-director David Ayer takes a serious approach to an absurd premise, while the actors inject sparks of bitter humour. But with a thin plot and characters that are only superficially developed, the film struggles to grab hold of the audience. At least there's plenty of whizzy action mayhem.
With everyone worried that the next Superman might turn out to be a terrorist, government agent Amanda (Viola Davis) has a crazy idea to turn the most violent criminals in prison into an elite black ops team. These include gruff marksman Deadshot (Will Smith), mentally unstable sexpot Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie), archaeologist-turned-enchantress June (Cara Delevingne), Aussie killer Boomerang (Courtney), fire-maker Diablo (Jay Hernandez), swordswoman Katana (Karen Fukuhara) and man-monster Croc (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). Each of these psychos has a personal weakness Amanda and team leader Rick (Joel Kinnaman) plan to leverage to keep them under control. Meanwhile, Harley's main squeeze Joker (Jared Leto) is trying to help her escape. Oh, and a meta-human wants to decimate humanity.
Ayer introduces each character with his or her own mini-montage, including snippets of back-story and cameos from the likes of Batman (Ben Affleck). These flashbacks continue throughout the movie, stirring emotion into various characters' decision-making processes. But that's about it as far as depth goes, and the script never imagines anything more original than pining after a lost love, missing a child or feeling guilty about past mistakes. While this adds a bit of interest, it never generates any proper connections, either between the characters or with the audience.

Though she's become an A-list star with recent high-profile roles in 'The Legend of Tarzan' and 'Suicide Squad', Robbie points out that she's been acting professionally for nearly 10 years.
Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie has objected to her tag as an ‘overnight sensation’, pointing out that she’s been a professional in the TV and film industry for nearly a decade.
Speaking to Who magazine on the red carpet premiere in London for the DC Comics movie, the 26 year old Australian actress says that most people don’t realise she’s been grafting away at more minor roles for many years, and that terms like the one with which she’s been dubbed by many media outlets don’t help in this regard.

Paddy Power has the 'Suicide Squad' star to be the next Bond girl at 12/1, ahead of the likes of Emily Blunt and Emily Ratajkowski.

Australian actress Robbie, 26, is tipped for the role in a forthcoming 007 movie, which will be the 25th film in the franchise and the first for a brand new Bond actor.

Leto plays The Joker in the upcoming ‘Suicide Squad’ movie and the actor went deep into the villain’s psyche to prepare for the role.
Jared Leto has some big shoes to fill when it comes to playing The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. In 1989’s Batman the role was taken on by the legendary Jack Nicholson then in 2008 The Joker was reimagined through Heath Ledger’s portrayal in The Dark Knight, but now it’s Leto’s turn to make the role his own.

The journalist in question also managed to offend the entire nation of Australia for good measure.

However, many people have reacted badly to the feature, saying that it often reads as if the journalist is lusting over her, focussing on her looks rather than her career and acting ability.

The American actress was 28, and nine years younger than DiCaprio, at the time.
Olivia Wilde has revealed that she was rejected from a role on The Wolf of Wall Street as Leonardo Dicaprio’s wife for being “too old”, after auditioning for the part of the Duchess of Bay Ridge, Naomi Lapaglia.
The 32 year old actress, who was 28 at the time of the audition, told radio presenter Howard Stern that she was told by producers that she was too “sophisticated” for the role in the Martin Scorsese movie. Later, however, she discovered that the term was simply a euphemism for her age.
Margot Robbie was eventually selected for the part at the age of 22, in order to portray the on-screen wife of an actor who was 37 at the time. Wilde was therefore excluded for being too old despite being nine years DiCaprio’s junior.

Smart and snappy, this comedy is one of the scariest films of the year, using humour to outline the 2008 economic collapse from the inside. With characters who are based on real people, the film shows how economists made a fortune from the financial devastation inflicted on millions of families. And the movie cleverly points out that all of this happened (and people are still getting away with it) because the general public can't be bothered to pay attention.
Things were so booming in the first years of this century that it was easy for the media to divert the attention of Americans away from the dark underbelly of the financial world, creating big scandals out of nothing, spurring rampant buying sprees and making stars of non-entities like the Kardashians. Meanwhile in 2005, investment expert Michael Burry (Christian Bale) noticed that America's mortgage market was turning toxic. So he offered to "short" it, betting against this always-stable market by purchasing credit default swaps. The banks thought they would make a fortune from him, carrying on their dangerous practices. But other experts saw Burry's point, including the nerdy genius Mark Baum (Steve Carell), the shark-like Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling) and a pair of newbies (Finn Wittrock and John Magaro) who tip off their reclusive mentor Ben Rickert (Brad Pitt). When the economy imploded, these men became billionaires.
Director-cowriter Adam McKay is better known for silly movies like Anchorman, so he packs this film with raucous cutaways to pop culture references of the period, as well as hilariously absurd explanations of economic issues from, for example, Margot Robbie in a bubble bath or Selena Gomez playing blackjack. This approach actually heightens the horror of what's going on as fraudulent bankers and corrupt government officials conspire to undermine the foundations of the economy. Although the explanations still feel like gibberish to mere mortals, it's at least presented in a way that's entertaining.

At age 71, Martin Scorsese proves with this riotous romp that he's one of the most energetic, audacious filmmakers working in America at the moment. And with his long-time 74-year-old editor Thelma Schoonmaker, he has created one of the most entertaining cautionary tales in recent memory. Not only does it highlight an unruly period in banking history, but it has a lot to say about where we are now.
This is the true story of Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio), who was 21 when he got his first job on Wall Street in the rough-and-tumble 1980s. Thanks to his illicit deals, he was a multi-millionaire within five years, tutored by a jaded veteran (McConaughey) and assisted by an enthusiastic novice (Hill). Along the way, he also swaps for a much more glamorous wife (Robbie), whose British aunt (Lumley) becomes part of his scam to stash his cash with a shady Swiss banker (Dujardin). But with an FBI agent (Chandler) on his trail, Jordan suspects that the high life can't go on forever.
At just under three hours long, the film sometimes feels like it is wallowing in the excessive sex and drugs along with these Wall Street criminals. But there's a jagged undercurrent to everything: all of this hedonism may look like fun, but someone is paying the price. The film is an often thrilling series of set-pieces that roll out in waves of comedy, tragedy and farce as these people play on the edge of an abyss. And it's great to see scenes play out in real time, with deep conversations, riotous comedy riffs and characters who are full of conflicting layers.

It's a wild ride of drinking, drugs, debauchery and deception when the ambitious Jordan Belfort decides that he wants to be one of the rich kids. Starting out his stockbroker business in a small office with a handful of employees, his aims are simple; target only the richest people in the country. It isn't long before Belfort and his team find themselves with more money than they know what to do with and begin to live their lives manically high off the success. However, Belfort hasn't exactly been making what you'd call an honest living and pretty soon the secrets of his fraudulent profits and money laundering draws attention from the authorities. And not only that, his disregard for others' sufferings means he's got a lot more to lose than his beloved business.
'The Wolf of Wall Street' is a gritty white-collar crime drama based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, a former stockbroker who served 22 months in prison for his fraudulent activity in 1998 and subsequently wrote two memoirs entitled 'The Wolf of Wall Street' and 'Catching the Wolf of Wall Street'. The new movie has been directed by the Oscar winning Martin Scorsese ('Shutter Island', 'Goodfellas', 'The Departed') and written by multi-Primetime Emmy winning writer Terence Winter ('The Sopranos', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Brooklyn Rules').
The Aussie actress got caught up in the moment during filming and slapped Leo hard on the face
Margot Robbie apparently likes to get thoroughly caught up in her characters whilst filming, or at least that was the case during filming for her new film The Wolf of Wall Street. Speaking with GQ (via Metro), the Australian actress revealed that she got a little too carried away in a scene with co-star Leonard DiCaprio and slapped him hard and firmly right across the face.
Fortunately for Margot, Leo didn't mind the slap
"I got a little lost in the moment. I slapped his face and said, ‘F**k you!’ There was a stunned silence then they all burst out laughing," the 23-year-old actress told the magazine. "I’d thought they were going to sue me. I apologised profusely but Leo said, ‘That was brilliant. Hit me in the face again!"

Smith has been accused of cheating on his wife of 16-years, Jada Pinkett Smith, with co-star Margot Robbie
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's marriage is often under scrutiny from various different sources and once again their union looked under threat when Star Magazine ran a story stating that Will may be hooking up with one of his co-stars. After an intimate photo shoot for their upcoming film Focus, Smith and Aussie actress Margot Robbie were reportedly seen getting heavy handed with each other and the rumour mill began spinning overtime. It turns out though that the co-stars are nothing more than that and the Smith union is under no threat.
Will and Margot were only fooling around and his 16-year marriage is not under threat
Will's wandering eye had reportedly landed the Smith family in a multi-million dollar divorce battle, Star first reported, but since this claim was made there has been an onslaught of press saying quite the contrary. Despite appearing together in a number of raunchy photographs taken during the wrap party for their new film, sources have insisted that the pair were just messing around and there is nothing to their relationship other than friendship. According to Us Weekly, the 42-year-old Fresh Prince and the 23-year-old former Neighbours actress "are not hooking up," and they have had no intention to do so either.

The whole situation has been taken out of context and a number of media outlets have used the photographs as evidence of Smith's alleged infidelity. However, sources speaking to Us Weekly, have said Smith and Robbie are "not hooking up." Another source has stated the photographs were taken in "a photo booth on set that the producers got for everyone. It was the last day of filming and everyone was taking pictures. They were just goofing around. Will is just like that. There's nothing more to it."

Reports have emerged that the two 'Focus' stars were getting hot and heavy during a photo shoot
Will Smith apparently got up close and personal with his Focus co-star Margot Robbie during a photo shoot for their new film, a number of reports have suggested. The two were photographed by Star Magazine last month looking a little closer than just friends during a photo shoot that took place on 25 October.

The magazine goes on to state that, following their photobooth session, the two got even more off the handle, however these reports have since been shot down by opposing sources.

Jordan Belfort started out his stockbroker business in a tiny office with a small group of people and had the intention of targeting only the richest people in America as their clientele. With such a small percentage of individuals lined up as hopeful patrons, their dreams of immense fortune and a life of luxury seemed embarrassingly unlikely. However, pretty soon the company starts to ooze more money than they can handle and it's parties, alcohol and women all round. Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear to everyone that what Belfort was doing to earn his fortune is not entirely legal and he risks his freedom and his wealthy lifestyle when the FBI get involved.
'The Wolf of Wall Street' is a white-collar crime drama based on the two memoirs by the real Belfort, who was jailed in 1998 for a string of fraudulent offences including money laundering. The autobiographies have since been translated into 18 different languages and now the Oscar winning Martin Scorsese ('Shutter Island', 'Goodfellas', 'The Departed') directs the screen adaptation which has been written by multi-Primetime Emmy winning writer Terence Winter ('The Sopranos', 'Boardwalk Empire', 'Brooklyn Rules'). The movie is set to be release on January 17th 2014.

Leonardo DiCaprio has explained why he fails to hold down serious relationships.
Leonardo Dicaprio has been linked to shall we say 'several' of the world's most beautiful woman. Let's just leave it that. However, the 38-year-old has been unable to hold down a serious relationship for years: why?
The 'Wolf of Wall Street' actor has reportedly dated Bar Refaeli, Erin Heatherton, Blake Lively, Aferdita Dreshaj and Margot Robbie, though he tells the May issue of Esquire that working hard and maintaining a relationship is simply not an easy thing to balance. "Six months of being on location or being off in Morocco or someplace like that is not the best thing for a relationship," he explained.
It's not difficult to take what DiCaprio is saying as the truth. He's easily one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood and since 2006 has starred in Blood Diamond, Body of Lies, Revolutionary Road, Shutter Island, Inception, J. Edgar, Django Unchained and new movies The Great Gatsby and The Wolf of Wall Street. Despite all that effort, Leonardo still regards himself as being incredibly fortunate to be in the position he's in. "I always thought of myself as the underdog, because I didn't have nice enough clothes or maybe my hair didn't look good" he explained, adding, "And so you have to understand-getting your foot in the door is like winning the lottery. It's literally like winning the lottery if you get to have a career [In Hollywood]."
