AMC has ordered a Preacher pilot episode based on the ’90s comic book series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. The project was first announced in February.
Issues of Preacher #1 started moving at the earlier announcements, I’d keep an eye on these issues since this update and as we get closer to seeing an actual pilot. Of course the hope is this will be a hit like Walking Dead, but only time will tell.

A much anticipated Sandman movie may be moving forward. Actor/director Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been reported to be in talks with DC and Neil Gaiman has been attached as an Executive Producer. We’ll keep you posted as we get news.
Warner Bros. announced Tuesday the lineup for the Suicide Squad movie, scheduled for an August 5, 2016 release.
Here’s the official list:
Jared Leto – The Joker
Will Smith – Deadshot
Tom Hardy – Rick Flag
Margot Robbie – Harley Quinn
Jai Courtney – Boomerang
Cara Delevingne – Enchantress
Rumor has it Jesse Eisenburg is in talks to play Lex Luthor. The story focuses on a team of super villains given a chance at redemption by the government with one twist – it’s a suicide mission.
Suicide Squad for Fun
Read the story of the “new” Suicide Squad from the New 52 in Trade Paperback Form. Volume One will get you started and save you some $$$.
Following the Movies-Comics-Cash idea, the best chance to cash in is on first appearances. Let’s take a look. Take a look for these Suicide Squad Movie Comic Tie-ins on E-Bay.
The Joker – The iconic Batman villain makes his first appearance in none other than Batman #1
Deadshot – Deadshot made his true first appearance way back in Batman #59. The character has gone through many iterations, but if you want the first, this is it.
Rick Flag – Again, way back in Brave and the Bold 25 (along with the original Suicide Squad, see below)
Harley Quinn – Harley comic books are on fire even though this character really made her first appearance in a tv show. First comic book appearance? Batman Adventures #12
Boomerang – Go back to the Silver Age to find this character’s first appearance in Flash #117
Enchantress – Again a character with a very complicated past, but appeared for the first time in Strange Adventures #187
and don’t forget
Amanda Waller – Legends #1 (1986). Amanda is in charge of this team and fortunately is found in a relatively new comic book.
Make sure you keep an eye on Suicide Squad appearances. The true first appearance is in Brave and the Bold 25, then again in Legends #3 (1987). Suicide Squad also appeared Secret Origins (vol. 2) #14. It looks like the movie will be true to the reboot in DC’s New 52.
