Tom Hardy leaves Suicide Squad, Doctor Who guest stars announced and Nintendo Direct’s slew of announcements.


Dark Knight Rises actor Tom Hardy has dropped out of the Suicide Squad movie, originally set to play team ‘leader’ Rick Flagg, the actor has had to drop the role after his project with Leonardo DiCaprio The Revenent has run over schedule. The good news is that Jake Gyllenaal (Nightcrawler) seems to have stepped in to fill his boots.

Theories surfaced  a few days ago that Black Widow, played by Scarlett Johansson, would be the one to bite the Whedon bullet in Avengers 2 Age of Ultron. But that’s probably not the case now, since Johansson will return in Captain America Civil War, alongside Mackie and Evans (and everyone else who’s involved in the superhero registration act.)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Michael Bay’s most recent attempt at nostalgia/explosion fever, has a sequel on its way. TMNT 2 will begin filming in April, and is set to release in 2016. 


The BBC has announced a bunch of guest stars for Doctor Who season 9, which started production in Autumn last year, you can check some of them out here.

Some promo images for The Flash‘s return (which will rush to our screens on the 20th of January) have arrived. The episode ‘Revenge of the Rogues’ will see the return of Captain Cold and his new heat inspired sidekick, as can be seen from these images.

More promo images! This time its for Arrow‘s return; Left Behind, all I can gather is that Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) will be fiddling with something on his wrist an awful lot.


Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth is free on steam right now, until Sunday night. If you like what you play the game is currently reduced by 40% too.

Bungie’s newest weekly update for Destiny has also announced the Hard Mode for the newest raid; Crota’s End has a release date, it’s next Wednesday.

For all those Nintendo fans who missed the Nintendo Direct on Wednesday, you can catch all 45 minutes here, but if you just want to browse through the announcements, Nintendo Life has you covered.
