“Suicide Squad” Cast Shake Up–Tom Hardy OUT, Jake Gyllenhaal IN!

The Suicide Squad movie is experiencing its first shake up! Tom Hardy has reportedly dropped out of the film. Fear not, there is no juicy drama here, it is simply a scheduling conflict. The actor is currently shooting The Revenant, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s frontier drama that also stars Leonardo DiCaprio. Filming is now looking to go longer than initially planned through March. Right after he has to begin promoting, in April,  his other WB film, Mad Max: Fury Road which comes out in May, whereas production for Suicide Squad begins production in April. Tom was cast as “Rick Flagg,” government agent, liaison, and leader of the Suicide Squad gifted with amazing fighting skills. He would have made an awesome Rick Flagg given his build and propensity for action and fighting roles. Fear not! The proverbial phrase, “one monkey don’t stop no show…” applies here.

Allegedly actor, Jake Gyllenhaal has been tapped to take over Hardy’s role. Jake too would excel at the role and he is probably the better actor of the two. Jake, nor his PR have confirmed his recast, but with production beginning soon it is bound to be confirmed in a matter of days. Thankfully none of the other stars have bowed out. I think we all would have been devastated not to see Will Smith as “Deadshot” or Jared Leto as “The Joker!” DC Comics are really bringing their A-game to movie theaters n 2016. Let’s just hope this movie measure up to all the hype. After all it has been rumored the “Astonishing Avengers” is Marvel’s answer to this merry team of anti-heroes! We will keep you posted!

Hey Mikey!

WHO AM I? That’s probably what you’re thinking? It’s simple I’m this generation’s “Dear Abby!” I was raised in the Fourth Ward of Atlanta, educated in the School of Hard Knocks, and rescued by the concrete and steel of New York City. Life at best will always be bittersweet. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be. I’d prefer to be on your sweeter side. Everyone needs a listening ear, extra shoulder, and open arms when life gets rough. I’m your new best friend, where it all goes south remember I’m a mouse click or tweet away. Hang in there kids, you’re gonna love kickin’ it with me!!! -Michael Jonvier
