I’m pretty sure we’re all aware that Suicide Squad is a thing and, yes, it looks like it could be awesome. But what if it were brought to you by the one-and-only Quentin Tarantino? Well, then I think it would be too awesome and we would all explode in a giant fireball of awesomeness.
The night is dark and full of terrors, also sadness. HBO has confirmed that Game of Thrones’ eighth season will be its last.
Space may be called the “final frontier” but what about unexplored areas that are on our very own Earth?
It feels like we’ve been waiting for HBO’s Westworld forever. The science fiction western/Firefly with robots was originally supposed to come in 2015, then 2016, then maybe 2017. We recently learned it was definitely coming in October 2016, but now we know exactly when. HBO has unveiled its fall release calendar and here’s when Westworld premieres this year: Sunday, Oct. 2 at 9pm.
We’re loving Tessa Thompson’s addition to Thor: Ragnarok as the badass warrior Valkyrie, and now we’ve got a look at her (possible) weapon.
The Mastermind Behind ‘Pokemon Go’ Talks Server Issues, Cheating And Admits He’s At Level 5 @ GammaSquad – UPROXX
You wouldn’t think a play in book form would be the most-anticipated novel of the year, and yet here we are. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts 1 & 2, the printed script of the West End play, debuts at midnight Sunday and the world is going nuts.
This episode is all about family, in many different forms.
It looks like Killer Croc originally had some steep competition to be on the Suicide Squad. If things had been different, we would’ve gotten an entirely different monster on the team.
The previous episode of Mr. Robot finally gave us an origin story for the F Society, specifically where the group got its weird, Monopoly Man-inspired mask that has become its symbol—it comes from a fake 1980s horror film that you can watch online.

French filmmaker Luc Besson's movie Lockout was apparently a little too close for comfort to Carpenter's classic.
Have you ever wondered what your brain is really doing as you sweat your way through a math test? Now you can see for yourself, thanks to a new brain imaging study from Carnegie Mellon University that captured the brain activity of people in the act of solving math problems.
When it comes to 3D in movies, you typically either love it or hate it. But, regardless of your preference, it sounds like it might be worth taking the plunge for Doctor Strange.

Rarely do characters go through as dramatic a change as Stephen Strange will in the upcoming Marvel movie, Doctor Strange. He’ll go from being a highly clinical, science-based surgeon to an ethereal, mystical being. Speaking with io9, actor Benedict Cumberbatch explained why that was so crucial and exciting.
I’m still not entirely sure we needed another Matt Damon Bourne movie after not having one for nearly a decade, but we’re getting one this weekend. It’s probably not going to be as good as the original trilogy. That’s why it’s nice to look back on the three Bourne flicks that were actually good. Specifically, their fight scenes.
Comic creators and fans spoke to us at San Diego Comic-Con about Wonder Woman and her impact.
In a promo entitled “We’re back, idiot hookers,” Scream Queens assures one and all that nuclear-strength mean-girl mojo will still be a major part of the Ryan Murphy horror comedy’s second season—even if circumstances have changed for the catty trio since leaving their killer-plagued sorority house.
In a news report that could easily be the plot of a cult horror movie, an anthrax outbreak has swept the remote Yamalo-Nenets district of western Siberia, killing 1,500 reindeer since Sunday.

If you’re looking for a new young adult sci-fi franchise to fill the void now that Divergent is apparently heading to the small screen, how about something with winged teens?
Here's a look at a bizarre Batman and Two-Face action figure mashup that might give you nightmares.
Photographing dead stars could be possible with a mind-blowing new algorithm.
Rumbling about a movie based on the hit game series Uncharted have come and gone over the years. So it’s no surprise that now, hot off the heels of the latest game, the film adaptation is gearing up once again.
In order to harden the edge of steel, swords are often heated until they’re impossibly hot and then quenched in liquid to rapidly cool down. This creates a much stronger grain structure in the steel which obviously leads to a much stronger sword. An interesting thing that happens during this quenching process is how the sword dramatically bends before it snaps back into shape (with a slight upward tilt).
Tricia Helfer and Aimee Garcia join the cast of Lucifer, and showrunner Joe Henderson talks about how their characters' arrivals stirs the pot in Season 2.
Most Overwatch characters are not related to each other, but as far as the community is concerned? The roster might as well be a big ‘ol family. Soldier 76, with his grumpy gruffness and ample experience in the field, is of course the dad.
I was sadly notified yesterday that actor-turned-radio show host Jerry Doyle, who played Michael Garibaldi on Babylon 5, passed away suddenly at the age of 60, which has been confirmed by his family. The cause of death has not been determined.
After Babylon 5, he turned his eye on politics. A staunch conservative, he ran for the U.S. House of Representatives as a Republican in 2000, but spent little money on the campaign and only received 30% of the vote. He then became a nationally syndicated radio talk show host. He also created the website and podcast Epic Times.
Babylon 5‘s creator J. Michael Straczynski released a statement on his death.
Babylon 5 has lost many of its cast members far too soon, having already lost Andreas Katsulas, Richard Biggs, Michael O’Hare, and Jeff Conaway.

Kevin Feige Says Baby Groot Will Be Like Spock In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ @ GammaSquad – UPROXX
The biggest problem with The Killing Joke movie’s portrayal of Batgirl goes beyond a poor approach to a female character. Its biggest problem is that what it adds to Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s original 1988 comic is so pointless, that its shoddy treatment of Barbara Gordon becomes all the more insulting.
Chop a tree. Wait three years. And then you can make yourself a longbow.
Humanity still has a lot of legwork to do before we can start kicking around the solar system, and one problem we’re looking to solve is actually getting the infrastructure up there to support all those eventual spacecraft. Well, Audacy is looking to solve that problem.
Anyone who was holding his or her breath for the return of Adrianne Palicki’s Bobbi “Mockingbird” Morse to Agents of SHIELD—especially since spin-off Marvel’s Most Wanted didn’t get picked up—should probably exhale.

It’s a not-so-secret-secret that the universes of Marvel’s film’s and TV shows are drifting further apart from each other. Directors

The Latest ‘Suicide Squad’ Featurette Reveals How The Team Got Into Fighting Shape @ GammaSquad – UPROXX
WikiLeaks has hit rock bottom. Once dedicated to careful vetting and redaction—sometimes too much redaction—the “whistleblower site” is now gleefully basking in its dump of thousands of emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee—most of which are full of personal, non-newsworthy information—published with the express intent of harming Hillary Clinton’s political campaign. In this latest release, there is no brave whistleblower in sight, just an anonymous hacker believed by the FBI and U.S. intelligence community to be a front for Russian intelligence services. The WikiLeaks project has fallen far from the lofty heights of its founding a decade ago, when Julian Assange promised to “facilitate safety in the ethical leaking movement.”
The New ‘Mario & Sonic’ Game Sounds Like It Contains A Very Bad Word, And Parents Aren’t Happy @ GammaSquad – UPROXX

Legendary has released the first trailer for their upcoming monster movie, The Great Wall.
Our weekly podcast returns to its regular schedule with a talk about all things Trek - the new movie, the upcoming series, and more!
No contemporary author has seen his work made into more movies and TV shows than Stephen King (and many more, like The Dark Tower, are in the works). The fact that he’s astonishingly prolific is certainly a contributing factor—as is the fact his works, horror and otherwise, tend to feel cinematic even on the page. But which of these many, many adaptations reigns supreme?
The first season of The CW's Legends of Tomorrow was a big, fun, crazy, ambitious mess — and in its own weird way — it totally worked. But, it sounds like they’ll be shaking up the formula a bit in Season 2.
He probably doesn’t approve of the bizarre hijinks they got around to on the set of the movie either
, but for now, let’s stick to the comic book version of America’s incumbent President.
WWE’s Biggest Action Figure Nerd, Zack Ryder, Bought Way Too Much Stuff At San Diego Comic Con @ GammaSquad – UPROXX

During Marvel’s Comic-Con movies panel, the lucky people inside the Hall H got to see a mockumentary about how Thor spent his time during Captain America: Civil War. One of the things he did was set up a conspiracy theory wall, like all good detectives do. Thanks to Thor: Ragnarok Taika Waititi, everyone can now see the Thanos part of the wall.
Jurassic Park author Michael Crichton passed away in 2008, but his found the manuscript for a novel titled Dragon Teeth in his archives, which will be released next year.
