DAVID AYER SAYS A DIRECTOR'S CUT OF SUICIDE SQUAD EXISTS
Hard on the heels of the announcement that the Snyder Cut is coming out, David Ayer confirms that he has a director's cut of Suicide Squad exists.
The difference, I would respectfully suggest, is that a sizeable chunk of fandom was eager to see the Snyder Cut of Justice League. I'm going to go out on a limb and speculate that there are rather fewer people anxious to see any version of Suicide Squad again.

There have been various hints and teases about 2000 AD's blue skinned future warrior Rogue Trooper coming to the big screen over the last couple of years, but Duncan Jones (who made the films Moon and Mute, and who is also currently running a kickstarter for a comic with Alex di Campi) has confirmed that the script is done.

DIAMOND DELIVERY SCHEDULE TO END OF JUNE
We have previously announced that Diamond would be recommencing weekly deliveries from 20th May. As a result of various factors (their own warehouse capacity if they are to maintain social distancing and protect their staff, availability and cost of air freight and the need to be consistent) they have now revised and reduced this schedule. Deliveries will now re-start on Wednesday 27th May, and be fortnightly until the end of June, at which point they will reassess the situation.
The new schedule is as follows.
Wednesday May 27th (Regular timed deliveries to be made on Wed 27th due to Bank Holiday Mon 25th May)
Wednesday June 10th
Wednesday June 24th
What will actually be shipping on those dates is unclear at present. We'll keep you informed.

I'M SORRY I HAVEN'T A CLUE
You either know about Clue or you've been missing out. Recorded for BBC4, this is the last edition of the Radio 4 comedy panel game to be hosted by the late, great, Humphrey Littleton and features the running gag of Jeremy Hardy singing and the absolute classic of "Girlfriend in a coma" sung to the tune of "Tiptoe Through the Tulips".
Sad to note that three of the six people on stage that night have since left us...
