During his recent interview with Collider the director for the live-action take on Death Note, Adam Wingard was quick to confirm that the film will stay true to the bloodiness and maturity of the source material:

“We can do whatever we want,” he started. “So, doing my first live-action anime thing, to me it was important that you have those adult themes. So, it’s got nudity, it’s got swearing, it’s got a ton of violence.”

Wingard went on to say that the adult-oriented part of Anime has always fascinated him:

“The thing about anime is that it’s so adult-oriented,” he explained. “I remember going to Suncoast growing up and you see Akira there with the little 'Not for Kids' sticker on it. That always made an impact on me.”

And further, that there's no way this movie's going to get anything less than an R-rating.

“It’s definitely for adults,” he stressed. “It is zero chance it will be below an R-rating. [It] will be one of the first manga adaptations that feels very grounded but still has fantastical elements.”

Not really sure what is happening here -- did Baffleck finally lose his senses altogether? -- but during an interview with Spanish-language news outlet Cines Argentinos, Ben Affleck offered up the following response when asked about his plans for the untitled, future solo Batman project:

“I think what I would do is, I would probably do in some ways what Zack [Snyder] did with this movie, which is to borrow great stories from the great comic books but create an original story around it. I wouldn’t want fans to already know the story, but I would borrow — steal — great things that have been done before in the comics.”

Apparently giving co-stars gifts like used condoms, anal beads, dead rats and pigs, wasn't enough for Leto; just yesterday the crazy fool gave Jimmy Fallon a live snake. See for yourself:



Dude, Jared Leto, you have no chill. During a recent interview with Fox 5 DC Leto said the following when asked about why he gave his poor Suicide Squad co-stars all those crazy gifts:

“The Joker loves to play games, he loves to manipulate, and that was part of the reason to do that. When you do give a gift to someone, even in real life, you think about, ‘What do I get them?,’ you think about who that person is to you, what would they like? So that immediately started to be really good homework for me. What do I give Deadshot? What’s my relationship with Deadshot? I gave Deadshot a briefcase full of bullets. It was kind of a message, it was kind of a threat, it was kind of a reminder. I wrote every character a note — a poem. What it did was that it started me on a journey into thinking what these people are, and it was a lot of fun.” (transcribed by Cinema Blend)

Here's the full 20-minute interview, if you've got that kind of time lying around; and if you want to hear Jared Leto straight up utter, 'human meat is always a great gift.'

When will it ever end Jared Leto? When? In a recent interview Leto had with Rolling Stone, he shed some (unwanted) light on his process for trying to get into character for Joker, and ended it all with a ridiculous idea for how Joker would handle an interview.



Before continuing, let's just say it's almost as absurd as Killer Croc's (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) routine when he watched straight up cannibalism videos to try and hone in on his character's mentality...



Naturally, Leto’s process got real weird, real quick. He started watching footage of actual violent crimes on YouTube, until he had to outright stop himself.

“The Joker is incredibly comfortable with acts of violence,” says Leto. “I was watching real violence, consuming that. There’s a lot you can learn from seeing it. Not every act of violence is committed with frenzy, either. I remember learning that. People can be calm. They’ve made their choice and go and do something, and it’s not in a frenzy.” His eyes have gone cold. “It’s methodical and sometimes even hypnotic and deliberate.”And with what was apparently no prompting, Leto finished up his interview saying “If the Joker did this interview, he’d definitely castrate you and make you eat your own testicles. Just for fun. That’s if he liked you.”

“Well, first of all she’d be turning over in her grave,” Atwell joked around while in an interview with IGN. “She’d be like ‘no.’ And she’d inject herself with the blue serum and become a super villain. She’d break out of her coffin and ground [Sharon]. She’d ground her. Then she’d kick Steve’s ass as well.”

Suffice to say, Haley Atwell did not approve of Steve Roger's romantic antics in Captain America: Civil War.
