David Ayer to Direct Warner Brothers/DC's 'Suicide Squad'!

It has just been reported by Variety that David Ayer (End of Watch) has entered negotiations with Warner Bros. Pictures to direct the film adaption of the DC comic book team, Suicide Squad, which will likely be included in WB’s upcoming DC Cinematic Universe. Dan Lin will produce the film with a script written by Justin Marks. No date has been set for the film, however as with the recently announced Shazam, it will likely be claiming one of the previously announced dates set by Warner Bros. already. There is no official word from the studio themselves, but the inside source did have this to say: The group doesn’t include any major DC supervillains like the Joker or Lex Luthor, but the characters will likely have an opportunity to cross over between other DC properties and vice versa for non-Suicide Squad members appearing in this film.”

I think that this is some really awesome news! While I think that the Suicide Squad is a really cool and interesting idea with some great characters, I actually don’t know a whole lot about them from the comics. For the most part, I only really know anything about them from what I have seen on the television show, Arrow (which you should be watching if you aren’t already. It’s fantastic!). That being said, from what I do know about the team, I honestly believe that is David Ayer is not just a great choice to direct the film; he is the perfect choice!

End of Watch is a film that really just surprised me on every level. I thought it was just going to be some found footage, movie version of Cops, but it turned out to be an intense, heart-pounding, dramatic, and gripping thriller with incredible writing and believable characters. I’ll go as far as saying that it may be the best cop movie I have ever seen. For those who don’t know, the Suicide Squad is a team of imprisoned DC villains turned anti-hero’s, who are recruited by the US government to help take down bigger threats in exchange for lesser prison sentences. If Warner Bros. and DC is intent on sticking to this more grounded and serious tone set by 2013’s Man of Steel, than I think that a director like Ayer fits incredibly well into that mold.

So, what do you think of a Suicide Squad film directed by David Ayer as a part of the DC Cinematic Universe? Leave your thoughts down below!

Deadpool cupcakes! Basically a cupcake I’ve been planning since they announced his game at SDCC.

Fun Fact: The Merc with the mountain of frosting has his very own stack of itty bitty pancakes, topped with a teeny pat of ‘butter’ and ‘maple syrup’. The funniest thing about that is that it took me close to an hour to get the consistency and color of real maple syrup with piping gel, only for some smart guy in my kitchen to go "Why not use real syrup?"

Smart me.

Mike and I are excited, elated, proud, relieved, and a bunch of other emotions to *FINALLY* announce the release of a soundtrack of Jeremy Zuckerman’s score from Book 1 of The Legend of Korra. I can’t begin to summarize the 9-year struggle we have endured to get any sort of a soundtrack released. We love Jeremy’s music deeply, and we know the fans do too, so it has been an incredibly frustrating wait and battle to make this a reality. All of the online petitions for an Avatar: The Last Airbender soundtrack were an amazing show of support from thousands of people and greatly appreciated, but for so long it seemed to be in vain as the idea of a soundtrack was blocked at a bureaucratic impasse.

Gratefully, thanks to the tireless efforts of some key people inside and outside of Nickelodeon who championed this project for many years, it is finally happening. Now, we are very aware that those petitions were for an Avatar soundtrack, which has yet to see the light of day. Firstly, we are lucky to get any sort of music release to happen, and secondly, our hope is that the Korra Book 1 soundtrack will be a success and show the company that there is a real demand for other music releases, Avatar included.

And a *HUGE* thank to Jeremy for his incredible scores. We are honored and lucky to get to work with a composer so immensely talented and dedicated. Congratulations on the release!

Above is the art I painted for the cover. Below is some info about the release:

–The first-ever The Legend of Korra soundtrack - The Legend of Korra: Original Music From Book One – will be available digitally and in stores everywhere on Tuesday, July 16.
–The album showcases 26 original instrumental tracks composed by Jeremy Zuckerman.
–The album is currently available for pre-order.
–The Legend of Korra: Original Music From Book One is being released by Nickelodeon and Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.

And here is an article on the Wall St. Journal blog that features a 4-minute cue in its entirety.

Grant mercy to our weak, help to our helpless, and justice to all, and we shall never fail you." "I swear it by earth and water," said the boy in green. "I swear it by bronze and iron,” his sister said. “We swear it by ice and fire,” they finished together.

A half human version of [the Doctor] was created during a metacrisis when his DNA and that of Donna Noble merged — this part-human version, with all his memories, feelings and experience intact, remained on ‘Pete’s World’, where he could grow old alongside the only person he truly ever loved, Rose Tyler.
