    Ben Affleck blames his romance with Jennifer Lopez for Gigli backlash

Angelina Jolie had a bad movie [Beyond Borders/Tomb Raider] that year and nobody cared,' the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice actor said on TimesTalk on Monday.

    Here's How You Can Get the Joker's Sweet New 'Suicide Squad' Car

    In next summer’s DC super-villain team-up Suicide Squad, the Joker (Jared Leto) has his own sweet set of wheels. Called the Vaydor, it’s a kit car designed and sold by a gear head named Matt McEntegart, who lives in northern Florida. “I wanted aggressive, angry, and low to the ground.” Related: Behind the Scenes Photos of ‘Suicide Squad’ That description basically shouts “super-villain,” and sure enough, when Suicide Squad came calling, he was more than happy to let his handiwork be featured in the film. The new Batmobile (DC/Warner Bros) The car can be any color, but both the one McEntegart showed to Fox 13 and the model used for Suicide Squad is painted a sort of hot purple, which looks great under the neon lights of the Gotham City night.
