DC fans have woken up to a MASSIVE treat, thanks to the gift that is Margot Robbie.

The Suicide Squad star has posted the first look at Harley Quinn in the new flick, Birds of Prey. She's sporting the character's icy blonde hair, only shorter with a sharp fringe, with her classic bright red lips.

She uploaded the stunning selfie to her Instagram, cheekily captioning it: "Miss me?" Um, YAS.

We're also drooling over that tassled jacket she's wearing, which is sure to spawn a load of knock-off versions. Knock-off versions that we will obviously be buying…

It's a definite change compared to the pink and blue-haired, baseball bat wielding Harley that we know and love, but we're going to embrace the change.

The 28-year-old actress shared the lewk from the solo film set, which is set to produce the film for a 2020 release.

In the newest flick, Harley Quinn will join forces with Black Canary and Huntress to save the life of Cassandra Cain from Gotham City crime lord, Black Mask.

We're also ADORING the fact that the movie has a female director- Cathy Yan. The look is definitely Japanese-inspired, but we're here for it. Gwen Stefani also has a clear influence, style icon that she is.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead is playing the role of Huntress, and Jurnee Smollett is acting as Black Canary, so it's a female-centred plot THANK GOD. Jared Leto took way too much credit away from Robbie in the last outing.

Harley deserves far more attention, she's an absolute BO$$.

Actress Margot Robbie is set to earn HUGE praise for her role in Mary, Queen of Scots, and now the Australian is set to star in a totally different movie.

She's officially signed on to produce and star in a live-action BARBIE movie, E! News reported today.

Warner Bros. and Mattel have struck up a partnership to bring the franchise to the cinemas in it's first ever live-action take on the famous doll.

Chairman of Warner Bros, Toby Emmerich, commented on Margot's new role in the project;

"Margot is the ideal producer and actress to bring Barbie to life on screen in a fresh and relevant way for today's audiences." Robbie intends on co-producing the movie under LuckyChap Entertainment.

The 28-year-old actress released a statement expressing her delight at playing the role of Barbie;

"Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child's journey to self-discovery. Over the brand's almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president."

She continued; "I'm so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide. I can't imagine better partners than Warner Bros. and Mattel to bring this film to the big screen."

Tom Ackerley, Margot's husband, as well as her business partner are also co-producers. Mattel took back the rights after the option passed on Sony's deal, and Robbie signed a first-look negotiation with Warner Bros in 2016.

Chairman and CEO of Mattel, said in a statement; "Barbie is one of the most iconic franchises in the world and we are excited to partner with Warner Bros Pictures and Margot Robbie to bring her to life on the big screen. We look forward to building on this collaboration with Warner Bros Pictures as we tell the stories of our beloved brands."

Amy Schumer was previously roped in to portray the titular doll she dropped out in 2017, saying in a statement, "Sadly, I'm no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts. The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I'm bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen." 

A director or release date has yet to be assigned. 

We can't wait to see what Margot does with this role, she really can be anything she wants. Barbie inspo 101.

I'm sure we all remember the drama-fest that was One Tree Hill; it was your typical American high school teenage TV show which focused on romance, basketball, jocks, cheerleaders and everything in between. 

We were hooked, especially when news broke that Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray were engaged, and then subsequently broke up following the much-publicised cheating scandal with Paris Hilton.

In essence, it was discovered fairly quickly that our favourite literate basketball player, Lucas Scott, was trashy IRL.

Sophia Bush, who played Brooke Davis on the show, had an in-depth interview with Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast and spoke about the controversial break-up.

The 36-year-old actress reflected on her ex-husband and former co-star Chad Michael Murray, and alleges that the One Tree Hill producers exploited their split while the series was still airing on TV.

She commented;

“The reason that I don’t talk about it A) is because everyone’s been 21 and stupid, but if you’re in our job, for some reason, people want to talk to you about like, when you’re fully-fledged adults who’ve done really amazing s— with your lives, they wanna talk to you about the dumb thing you did in college basically."

"Which doesn’t make sense to me, ’cause like, in any other realm, if a CEO is having a meeting, no one’s gonna ask about the time they went to a kegger in college.”

She continued;

“What’s complex about this issue for me is that the person who I was 21 and stupid with is also an actor,” said Bush, who admitted that she was “a really naive kid.”

According to Bush;

“Being a super nerdy kid and suddenly you’re on TV and all this stuff is happening and one of the cool people you work with thinks you’re awesome, there’s really base brain stuff there. I think that for me, it took me a long time to do the kind of inventory you’re talking about in the after effect. And I continued to be in a place of work with my ex.”

Cinema goers and superhero fans alike were blown away by the release of Wonder Woman earlier this year.

And to top of the great fan reception, it also smashed box office records, with it being the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman.

And now, it looks like it's coming back.

Comic Con was the bearer of great news this weekend as Warner Bros announced that Wonder Woman 2 is officially on its schedule.

Patty Jenkins, the director, spoke to Entertainment Tonight and let slip the little plan she has in place.

“The story will take place in the U.S. She’s Wonder Woman. She’s got to come to America. It’s time.”

She continued: “I realised that Wonder Woman 2 is its own great movie. I made Wonder Woman. Now I want to make Wonder Woman 2. It’s a beautiful story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love.”

OK, we're already excited for this.

So, the Harry Potter franchise has unfortunately ended and fans have left no theory or plot hole unturned.

With no where else to focus all that magical energy, fans decided to turn their attention to what came before Harry and his pals got their Hogwarts letters.

More specifically, a prequel film about the Dark Lord himself – Voldemort: Origins Of The Heir.

Warner Brothers have just given the go ahead to a film about the life of Tom Riddle after Tryangle Films set up a Kickstarter page in a bid to raise funds for the project.

The campaign was later pulled from the crowd funding site, leaving fans thinking the idea had been scrapped.

However, earlier this week, a trailer for the fan film made it's way onto YouTube, and has racked up over 2.5 million views in just a few days.

The minute long clip shows the heir of Gryffindor, Grisha McLaggen on the hunt for Tom Riddle, who disappears after Hufflepuff's heir is poisoned by a house elf.

Following the trailers success, Warner Brothers have teamed up with Tryangle Films to produce the unofficial prequel, providing it's only released on YouTube 'in a nonprofit' way.

Speaking to Polygon, Voldemort: Origins of The Heir director, Director Gianmaria Pezzato, confirmed the news.

"We had a private and confidential discussion with Warner Bros. who contacted us during the period of the crowd funding campaign.

"The only thing we can say is that they let us proceed with the film, in a nonprofit way, obviously."

When asked what inspired him to create the film, Gianmaria said:

"We wondered, “What made Tom Riddle become Voldemort? What happened in those years, and what really went down at Hogwarts when he came back?”

"A lot goes unspoken. This is story we want to tell: The rise of the Dark Lord before Harry Potter and his first demise."

We can not wait for this.

Despite being one of the most talked about movies of the year, Suicide Squad inevitably garnered what could best be described as a mixed reaction.

But one thing even the film’s harshest critics can agree on is that Margot Robbie’s portrayal of the Joker’s girlfriend Harley Quinn was pretty much spot on.

While it’s still very early days, The Independent has reported that Ms Robbie has signed a deal with Warner Bros which could see her take on an executive producer role for a Harley Quinn movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Harley Quinn solo film would work well with Warner Bros renewed commitment to female-focused storytelling, which has already led the studio towards producing Wonder Woman and Ocean’s Ocho.

While we're sure it'll be a while before the colourful character appears on our screens again, we're already excited to find out what Harley does next.

If you still have a little bit of Harry Potter fever left in you (which most people seem to), then this could be your chance to dine in the Great Hall.

Warner Bros Studio Tour in London is hosting 'Breakfast at Hogwarts' – but for only two days.

The studio will open its doors on August 21 and 28, where you can visit the Great Hall and munch on magical cereals like Pixie Puffs and Cheeri Owls.

Staff will be dressed in official Hogwarts uniforms as they serve you some brekkie in the infamous dining hall.

The studio has actually put in a lot of work to make this happen. It took 40 people over seven months to build an exact replica castle with over 300 fibre optic lights installed so it looks like lanterns and torches are flying around above you.

And after your breakfast, you'll be able to tour around the whole castle and finish up your morning by drinking a giant glass of Butterbeer!

However, it's going to be a pretty pricey breakfast with tickets costing £95 (€110) for adults and £75 (€87) for kids.

So if you have a secret account at Gringotts bank, now is the time to use it.

It seems like it's not all rainbows and sunshine in Stars Hollow at the moment.

We (and the rest of the world) are super excited for the Gilmore Girls reunion episodes on Netflix, but one man wants some money for them.

Former producer Gavin Polone has filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros claiming that he didn't receive compensation for the show's revival.

He's suing the company for $195,000 (€170,000) and also wants to lawsuit to go to trial, according to Deadline.

"Upon learning that production had begun on the Subsequent Episodes, plaintiff’s representative reached out to defendant regarding plaintiff’s compensation under the Operative Agreement," the court documents read.

Gavin was an executive producer on show for all seven seasons from 2000 to 2007.

Back in October, reports surfaced that Gilmore Girls was making a comeback.

The rumour mill flooded when it was claimed Netflix made a deal with Warner Bros that would bring four NEW 90-minute episodes of the show back to our screens. *Squeals*.

But now photos on Twitter have surfaced by user, Clara, which shows a re-vamped Miss Patty's studio. 

But the most exciting part? There's a date in one photo, January 11th 2016, which kinda hints that she show might be filming now or they have already filmed.

Now, of course it's always difficult to say how legitimate everything is, but if it's true, we are SO excited.

It was a very exciting evening for two hundred Harry Potter fans last Thursday as the lucky few got to dine in Hogwarts Great Hall

The event was hosted by Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London, which was home to all the Harry Potter sets. 

It was a bit pricey though, costing about €310 for the night, but let's be honest, it was probably worth every penny. 

The hall itself was decked out in the finest Potter/Christmas decor and one writer from Time magazine was clearly blown away by the dinner: 

"The dinner menu was as elaborate as the night itself, beginning with a first course of ham hock and broad bean terrine with pea puree and walnut bread or confit pear, stilton cheese, radicchio and watercress salad.

"The second course—served as masked Death Eaters entered the hall in clouds of smoke to take pictures with guests—was roast turkey stuffed with cranberry and sausage with cumin carrots, brussels sprouts, crispy potatoes and rich gravy or lasagne with courgette, mozzarella, basil and pepper." YUM. 

Many of the guests shared their experiences on social media, and the pictures speak a thousand words:

Filming for season 8 of The Big Bang Theory has been delayed further, due to contract negotiations involving five of the show's stars.

The issues are said to be due to salary negotiations for Kaley Cuoco, Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helburg.

Warner Brothers issued a statement regarding the delay, saying: “Due to ongoing contract negotiations production on The Big Bang Theory, which was originally scheduled to begin today, has been postponed.”

Uh oh, this does not sound good! We hope they can sort the issues soon and get back on our screen in usual hilarious fashion!

It has been reported that director of Frost/Nixon and A Beautiful Mind, Ron Howard, is in talks with Warner Bros. about creating a live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book.

It was originally decided that director of Babel and 21 Grams, Alejandro González Iñárritu, would take on the project but he had to let it go due to scheduling commitments.

Warner Bros. aren’t the only ones with their eyes on a live-action adaptation of the classic however, as Disney are releasing their own under the direction of Friends‘ Jon Favreau in October 2015.
