Film Fondue: One more huge plot twist coming to HBO’s Game of Thrones

by Brandon Russell | May 28, 2016May 28, 2016 11:00 am PST

Still recovering from that big Game of Thrones moment from episode 5? Well, there’s another big reveal on the way, so start preparing yourself now. In addition to that, we have trailers, news items, rumors, and a report about Warner Bros. possibly spinning off Suicide Squad with standalone movies for characters such as Captain Boomerang and Joker. Sounds plausible, but first let’s see if Suicide Squad is even any good.

Spoilers are ahead

Westworld premiere date

After a series of misfires, HBO has finally revealed Westworld will premiere in late 2016, not 2017 as many had feared. The science fiction thriller is based on the 1973 film of the same name and features Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, James Marsden and many other big Hollywood actors. Images via HBO [Medium]

True Detective Season 3 ain’t happening

Speaking of HBO, insiders at the company say a third season of True Detective isn’t happening. No official word has come down the pipeline, so it’s unclear what HBO plans to do. Apparently True Detective Nic Pizzolatto will instead move on to creating a new project. Images via HBO [HollywoodReporter]

Suicide Squad spinoffs

In addition to Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn getting a spinoff, a new report claims Warner Bros. wants to explore opportunities with other characters, too. That includes Jared Leto’s Joker, Jai Courtney’s Captain Boomberang, and maybe even Will Smith’s Deadshot. [WeGotThisCovered]
