VOTE: Leonardo DiCaprio Being Eyed For The Joker Movie — How Do YOU Like The Casting??

no title

Dang, Warner Bros is not kidding around when it comes to their new Joker movie!

According to sources spilling to The Hollywood Reporter, the Batman villain standalone movie could suddenly look like a real draw thanks to a bona fide Oscar-winning lead: Leonardo DiCaprio!

We were surprised to see Martin Scorsese's name listed among producers for the upcoming DC Comics spinoff flick, but these new whispers may tell the reason why — he's reportedly being courted to bring on board his favorite collaborator. Leo has starred in several Scorsese films, including The Wolf Of Wall Street and The Departed with former Joker Jack Nicholson.

The pair's pedigree would seem to show Warner's intent to elevate the project to something award-worthy. Not sure how Hangover III director Todd Phillips fits in there, but whatevs.

Leo as the Joker. Huh. You know, thinking of his devilish smirk in Django Unchained, we can actually see that as potentially working really well.

But what do YOU think, Perezcious readers? Tell us (below):

It's been just over a week since the tragic death of stuntwoman Joi "S.J." Harris on the set of Deadpool 2, and investigators are trying to learn how this could have happened.

But according to one stunt performer, the answer is simple: she wasn't being ready.

The stunt in question was apparently routine, simply driving through a door, down a ramp, and stopping.

Another stuntwoman who was training Harris tells The Hollywood Reporter that stunt coordinators could see that the pro motorcycle racer, who had never done a movie before, was having trouble:

This is horrible!

A stuntwoman was killed after a motorcycle accident while filming a scene for Deadpool 2 in Vancouver on Monday.

According to witnesses, the performer was filming a scene when she lost control of the bike, jumped the curb, and crashed through the window of Shaw Tower. Witnesses say it doesn't look like she ever applied the brakes.

Fans Lose Their Shit As Ryan Reynolds Shares The First Pic Of Josh Brolin As Cable From Deadpool 2!

no title

Deadpool ends with a post-credits scene in which the titular antihero teases that longtime X-Men comic book fan favorite Cable would be joining him in the sequel.

Spoiler alert? Well, whatever, too late now.

With the exception of possibly casting Keira Knightley (we heard she wasn't even in the final three!), the Merc with the Mouth made good on his promise.

The Walking Dead Has A Bittersweet Comic-Con, Honoring Fallen Stuntman & Releasing The First Season 8 Trailer

It's been a rough week for The Walking Dead — so much so they considered canceling their appearance at San Diego Comic-Con altogether.

Instead, according to moderator Chris Hardwick, the cast decided to carry on their tradition for the fans.

Hardwick, who also hosts aftershow Talking Dead, began the Fear The Walking Dead panel with a moment of silence for stuntman John Bernecker, who passed away last week after a stunt gone wrong.

Ben Affleck Reportedly Done Playing Batman!

no title

Batfleck, we hardly knew ye!

Warner Bros. is finally on the right track to roll out a successful DC movie universe that rivals Marvel — but it looks like the Justice League might already be starting to disassemble.

The studio is reportedly planning for a future of Batman movies without Ben Affleck, and is working to "gracefully" usher the movie star out of the franchise altogether!

Related: Ben Affleck Stepping Down As Director For The Batman

According to The Hollywood Reporter, WB is moving forward with plans to make a new Batman trilogy from director Matt Reeves, which the studio claims it still wants Affleck to star in.

But their inside source says the studio is secretly working on plans to get rid of Affleck's Batman within an upcoming DC movie, either having him retire or, more likely, killed off for the sake of continuity in the overall DC story arc.

In the comics, other characters have taken up the cape at times, including former sidekick Dick Grayson; could this be related to rumors WB is in talks with Armie Hammer, who was cast as Batman back in 2009 in George Miller's ill-fated Justice League movie? Are they preparing him to take over?? Hmm…

THR cites Affleck's age as a major reason for the potential change. He's currently 45 years old and would be approaching 50 around the time The Batman — which has still yet to be written, btw — comes out in 2019 (or later).

No matter what happens, be prepared for a major shake-up in the DC movie universe!
