Former Catwoman Anne Hathaway Offers Advice To New Lex Luthor Jesse Eisenberg

Speaking with Total Film while promoting Rio 2, Anne Hathaway comments on co-star Jesse Eisenberg's recent casting as Lex Luthor in Batman vs. Superman. Of course, Hathaway previously played iconic DC villainess Selina Kyle/Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, so does she have any advice for Eisenberg's debut in the DC Universe? "I wish I could say something, but it’s going to be his experience. Keep a journal, which I’m sure he does in some version of that already, just to remember it. Don’t be afraid to make it your own. In my case, people criticized, criticized, criticized until they saw it, and then a lot of people likes what I did. Don’t listen to anyone, do your thing. They cast you for a reason." Well said. Hathaway finishes by praising Eisenberg's casting, and shares her excitement for the Man of Steel sequel. "I think he’ll be remarkable, I’m excited to see it."

Darren Aronofsky Looks Back On Being In Contention To Direct MAN OF STEEL

Before Zack Snyder was hired to direct Warner Bros.' Superman reboot Man of Steel, acclaimed filmmaker Darren Aronofsky was reportedly in contention for the gig. Now, speaking with MTV News, the Noah director confirmed that he would have "absolutely" helmed Man of Steel under the right circumstances. "Superman's one of the holy grails. It's Superman. It's the best superhero. Batman is great, of course, but it's Superman. He's the same level. That possibility was great." 

Aronofsky then affirmed that he had a "few conversations" with producer Christopher Nolan about directing the film, before Zack Snyder landed the job. However, Aronofsky has no hard feelings toward the 300 helmer. "I thought Zack was a great choice, and I loved his 'Watchmen' movie. I thought it was great. I thought that as a fan of the comic, you couldn't hope for a better interpretation. I liked the orthodoxy of it." He finishes with his th…

DC Movie News Bits: More From Stephen Amell On ARROW's Possible Big Screen Future + Chadwick Boseman Namedrops Green Lantern

Stephen Amell has made no secret about his interest in reprising his Oliver Queen/Arrow role for the big screen, particularly the long awaited Justice League movie. Appearing at Emerald City Comicon (via Comic Book Resources), the Arrow star again talked about leaping into the DC Cinematic Universe. He reaffirmed that he's interested in playing Green Arrow on film, and would be frustrated if another actor took the role. "I'm completely overly competitive. And the thought of somebody else playing Oliver Queen makes me want to smash that head through that table. But for the time being, it's very difficult for me to look past filming our 22nd episode of the season right now." Amell finishes by saying, "I would definitely be open. And I appreciate all the support." For more from Amell, click the link above.

Since the success of 42, Chadwick Boseman has been frequently suggested for a comic book movie role. Last year, he was rumored to be a top contender to…

Television has released biographies for Jim Gordon, Harvey Bullock, Alfred Pennyworth, Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, and Selina Kyle. A lot of these details were known already, but some new tidbits of info can be found below. Gotham is expected to premiere on Fox next fall. [Via GothamSite]

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara Teases Announcement Of New DC Film Series - JUSTICE LEAGUE Included

With Man of Steel and 2016's Batman vs. Superman, Warner Bros. is finally moving forward with a DC Cinematic Universe. The question on everyone's mind, obviously, is what other movies we can expect. Justice League is a no-brainer, and is rumored to be releasing shortly after Batman vs. Superman. Fans have also been vocal about the need for Wonder Woman and The Flash movies. And now, we have a minor update on the DCCU's future.

In a New York Timespiece on Kevin Tsujihara, the Warner Bros. CEO confirmed that a "film series" based on a DC property will be announced in the near future. NY Times adds that Justice League is "expected" to be included in this series. The site also reaffirmed that development on DC Entertainment productions has "accelerated considerably" since Tsujihara came on board.

As for what the other films in this series will include, there's no shortage of options. Movies for Flash, Wonder Woman, and Aquaman are inevitable,…

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Scribe David S. Goyer Expresses Interest In Tackling Green Lantern

After working on The Dark Knight Trilogy and Man of Steel, David S. Goyer is currently Warner Bros.' go-to screenwriter for DC movies. He most wrote the original draft for Batman vs. Superman, which unites Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman on the big screen for the first time. He is also contracted to pen Justice League, and is rumored to be involved with smaller DC films such as Suicide Squad. Additionally, Goyer helped craft the story for NBC's Constantine pilot. But in a recent interview, the scribe mentioned yet another DC character he'd like to work on.

Speaking with Colliderwhile promoting Da Vinci's Demons, Goyer went on to discuss making Krypton a "truly alien world" in Man of Steel. The interviewer then suggested that the film's opening sequence was exactly what the Green Lantern film should've been, and asked if Man of Steel could be used as a template for future films starring the Emerald Knight. Goyer replies, "I'd love to do Gr…

ARROW S2E19 "The Man Under the Hood" Synopsis + Title For Penultimate Episode

Next week's episode of Arrow, titled "Deathstroke", promises to be one of the series' most intense installments yet. The following week will be another hiatus, but things will pick back up on April 16th with S2E19, "The Man Under the Hood". The CW has released the official logline for this episode, teasing another clash between Oliver and Slade. If you did not watch this week's Arrow or the "Deathstroke" preview, the following may be a bit spoilerific. Also, this will be the episode featuring guest appearances by Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) and Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes), who will be series regulars on The Flash spin-off.

DEATHSTROKE HITS OLIVER AT HOME — Oliver (Stephen Amell), Canary (Caity Lotz), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) return to the lair and find Slade (Manu Bennett) waiting for them.

DC Movie News Bits: More From Josh Brolin On Turning Down Batman + Henry Jackman On Composing A DC Film

Before Ben Affleck was cast as Batman for 2016's Man of Steel follow-up, Josh Brolin was reportedly a frontrunner for the highly coveted role. He later confirmed that he was approached, but couldn't iron out a deal. Now, speaking with Yahoo!,the Labor Day star comments on his being up for Batman yet again. He said that he did meet with director Zack Snyder, but the two apparently didn't have the same vision for Batman's portrayal. "Me and Zack had a conversation about it. And there were several reasons why we said it wasn’t the best idea on both sides. I had mine and Zack had his."

Brolin also reaffirms his endorsement of Ben Affleck playing the Dark Knight, again criticizing the backlash from the online community. "People were so disrespectful. How can you blame an actor for acting? I understand you’re a fan, but people forget that actors are human. When you’re sitting in front of a computer it’s easy to go, ‘Well, I wish he would die. Send.’ But someb…

David E. Kelly Affirms That Wonder Woman Is Better Suited For The Big Screen

Back in 2011, NBC and David E. Kelly were developing a new Wonder Woman television series, starring Adrianne Palicki as Diana Prince. However, the network passed on the pilot, killing any plans for a full season. Aftewards, The CW attempted to produce its own Wonder Woman series, titled Amazon. That would have focused on Diana's origins in a Smallville-esque show. That series was canned earlier this year, before any serious development was made. In the meantime, Wonder Woman will finally make her presence felt on the big screen, as Gal Gadot will play Diana in 2016's Batman vs. Superman.

Now, David Kelly has commented on the difficulties of adapting Wonder Woman to television. Speaking with Fox411at the Television Academy Hall of Fame induction dinner, the TV writer-producer states that Diana of Themiscyra is indeed a better fit for the big screen rather than the small. "When you are going to do a super hero character, you’re competing with special effects. Television bu…

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN News Bits: David Goyer Talks Balancing Characters, Eliza Dushku & Anne Hathaway On Catwoman, Jesse Eisenberg Can't Say Anything

Speaking with Collider, David S. Goyer spoke about his approach to adapting characters in scripts such as Batman vs. Superman,for which he wrote the original draft. He reaffirms that he seeks to honor each character he writes, and discusses balancing influence from what the fans want and what is best for his vision. "I always try my best to honor every character. When you’re dealing with big iconic characters, there’s a lot of fan pressure to get it right, and I respect that and admire that passion enormously. At the same time, you can’t let your creative process be too crowded by that or distracted by it. It’s not always one uniform opinion of how you should portray this character or that character. I think I’ve done a pretty good job of walking that razor’s edge. You just have to do your best and know what’s out there, but at the same time, follow your own muse."

Dwayne Johnson Offers New Hints For His DC Character - "On A Superman Level Of Power" And Not Green Lantern

Earlier this year, Dwayne Johnson confirmed that he was planning to team up with DC Entertainment for an unspecified project in 2014. Naturally, plenty of rumors and speculation surrounded his role in the DC Cinematic Universe. The most frequently rumored choice has been Green Lantern John Stewart, whom "The Rock" is a huge fan of. Now, Johnson has discussed his negotiations with DC, and offered a few hints for his character.

Appearing at CinemaCon this week (via Spinoff Online), Johnson was inevitably asked about the DC rumors. He reaffirmed that he has been talking with the studio for some time, searching for the right character for Johnson to play. "So, you know, there’s been mutual interest with myself and DC for many years to find the right character. I, like everyone here in the room, love superheroes. So there’s been mutual interest with us for years, and we’ve been having ongoing discussions, myself and DC, for years about the right character, what the right ch…

Manu Bennett Possibly Confirms The Big Bad For ARROW Season 3

Arrow's Manu Bennett was present at Megacon in Orlando, Florida, where the Slade Wilson actor talked in detail about playing the character. The most interesting question asked Bennett if there was a possibility of Slade teaming up with Malcolm Merlyn, should he survive his showdown with Oliver Queen later this season. Bennett affirmed that he does not know how the season will end, as the finale has yet to be written. However, he did confirm that John Barrowman will return as Merlyn in Season 3, "quite possibly" as the big bad once again. Head over to Spoiler TVfor more of Bennett's guest appearance at Megacon.

Malcolm Merlyn was the main villain of the first season of Arrow. He has only appeared a handful of times this season, but the revelation of Thea being his biological daughter has become a key plot point, leading to Oliver cutting himself off from Moira. Merlyn disappeared at the end of S2E8, faced with the threat of Ra's al Ghul for his Undertaking in Star…

First Look At Alfred Pennyworth In Latest GOTHAM Character Portrait

After releasing Gotham character images for Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue) and Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova), Fox has now unveiled a promotional portrait for Alfred Pennyworth, who is played by Sean Pertwee. In the Batman prequel pilot, Alfred is an ex-Marine who has served as the butler for the Wayne family, and is fiercely protective of young Bruce (David Mazouz) following his parents' tragic deaths. Stay tuned for more character portraits in the coming days.

Gotham is currently filming, and is expected to premiere on Fox next fall.

FEATURE: Five Actors Who Should Be Considered To Play Green Lantern Hal Jordan In The DC Cinematic Universe

As one of DC's most iconic characters, Green Lantern is expected to debut in the DC Cinematic Universe in Warner Bros.' Justice League, if not sooner. Of course, there has been much debate on which Lantern to use. Despite the Green Lantern movie's failure, should WB bring back original League member Hal Jordan? Or should the studio enlist John Stewart, a well-known Lantern who can bring some much-needed diversity to the League? Below, I've compiled a list of five actors who should be considered to play the former on the big screen.

#5 - Ryan Reynolds
Reynolds played Hal Jordan in 2011's Green Lantern movie, which was far from a success. While the film had plenty of problems, Reynolds was hardly one of them. He may have had a messy script and an unenthusiastic director to work with, but the actor still delivered a solid performance. He brought the level of arrogance and perseverance required for Hal Jordan, and given some tweaks here and there, he can perfectly embo…

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN News Bits: Update On Illinois Filming + Susan Eisenberg Discusses Gal Gadot As Wonder Woman

Earlier this week, it was reported that Batman vs. Superman will film scenes in Yorkville, Illinois in mid-May, after a number of delays. However, Chicago Tribunehas now updated its original article with a different start date for Illinois. The Man of Steel sequel will now shoot in Yorkville this fall. This makes sense, as production is expected to last several months in Detroit. The Illinois scenes will include the recently rebuilt Kent farm house. Batman vs. Superman is expected to begin filming in Detroit next month.

In other news, longtime Wonder Woman voice actress Susan Eisenberg weighs in on Gal Gadot playing the character in Batman vs. Superman. Best known for voicing Diana Prince in the Justice League/Justice League Unlimited animated series, Eisenberg has also voiced the character in Justice League: Doom, Injustice: Gods Among Us, and is now reprising the role in the DC Universe Online DLC "Amazon Fury". While speaking to The Mary Sueabout the latter, Eisenberg ex…

After yesterday's reveal of Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Fox has released the second character portrait for its Batman prequel series, Gotham. This image features future Catwoman Selina Kyle, who will be played by Camren Bicondova. As more set photos for the currently-filming pilot leak, it's a wise idea for the network to unveil official images. Stay tuned for more character portraits as we have them.

Gotham also stars Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Sean Pertwee as Alfred Pennyworth, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot/Penguin, and Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney. The series is expected to premiere on Fox next fall.

For this week's new Son of Batman image, @SuperPRGuy has shared a first look at a previously unconfirmed character in the animated feature. He only referred to this character as someone "lurking in the shadows", and revealed that he will be voiced by Fred Tatasciore. The creature seen in the following still is the villainous Killer Croc, who was previously confirmed to be featured in this movie.

Tatasciore previously voiced Croc in the LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes video game. The actor, best known for voicing Hulk in various Marvel projects, previously worked with DC on Young Justice, the first two Batman: Arkham games, and more. Son of Batman marks the second appearance by Killer Croc in a DC animated feature, following his presence in 2008's Batman: Gotham Knight. Check out the image below, and stay tuned for more news as we have it. Son of Batman hits stores on May 6th.

ARROW's Marc Guggenheim Talks Huntress, Harley Quinn Rumors, Connections To Batman Universe, Season 3 And More

Warning: the following article contains some spoilers from last night's episode of Arrow, "Suicide Squad".

In a lengthy interview with Collider, writer and executive producer Marc Guggenheim talks more about what to expect from the rest of Arrow Season 2. Firstly, he reveals that more people will learn that Oliver Queen is the Arrow. "I would say that that number is going to go up, before the end of the year. By the finale, more people will know than currently do." Fans have also wondered why Detective Lance has yet to discover this secret, and Guggenheim had this to say regarding that topic. "Episode 19 pretty definitively answers that question, as far as Lance is concerned. And the answer to that will surprise you. It’s not something that you would expect." 
Guggenheim then talks in detail about The Huntress' return in next week's episode, "Birds of Prey". While saying that the episode will end the current chapter for Helena and st…

First GOTHAM Promotional Image Puts The Spotlight On Harvey Bullock

With filming on Fox's Gotham pilot underway, the network is now releasing a slew of character portraits for the Batman prequel series. The first one features Detective Harvey Bullock, who will be played by Donal Logue. The actor was previously spotted filming Gotham in leaked set photos, as was Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon) and Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot).

iZOMBIE Casts Final Series Regular; Writer-Director Rob Thomas Discusses What To Expect

We have a couple of news tidbits for The CW's iZombie pilot. The DC/Vertigo adaptation has found its final potential series regular in British newcomer Rahul Kohli (EastEnders). He will play Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, who is described as "a high-energy, enthusiastic nerd with a brilliant mind that isn't equipped with a filter or an off switch. He becomes Liv's friend, partner and confidant. It's a mutually-beneficial, yet unlikely, friendship that proves to be as solid as they come." The pilot also stars Rose McIver as Liv, Malcolm Goodwin as unnamed police detective, David Anders as Blaine, Alexandra Krosney as Peyton, and Robert Buckley as Major.
Meanwhile, writer, director and producer Rob Thomas has offered new details on iZombie. Speaking with IGN, he says that The CW wanted a Buffy the Vampire Slayer-esque series. While iZombie will not be a zombie apocalypse show, it will be a "fun, cool, smart, funny" female-led adaptation. Thomas also confirms …

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN Confirmed To Film In Yorkville, Illinois In May

With Batman vs. Superman expected to begin filming within the coming month, we have a production update. According to Chicago Tribune, the Man of Steel follow-up will shoot in Yorkville, Illinois in mid-May. Last year, the Kent farm house from Man of Steel was reconstructed in the city. Unlike that movie, which shot scenes in other Illinois areas, Batman vs. Superman will only film in Yorkville. Production in the area was originally scheduled for February, but this was delayed "multiple times" following the movie's release date being pushed to 2016. 
Director Zack Snyder previously suggested that filming officially starts in April. This was corroborated by costume designer Michael Wilkinson, who said he'd be in Detroit from mid-April to December. While most of Batman vs. Superman's production is expected to take place in Detroit, perhaps they will move from there to Yorkville to shoot these Kent farm house scenes before returning. Stay tuned for more news as we …

ARROW: Marc Guggenheim Confirms Guest Appearances By 'Caitlin Snow' And 'Cisco Ramon' In S2E19 "The Man Under the Hood"

After much speculation regarding S2E19 of Arrow, a leaked casting sheet revealed that two recurring characters from The Flash will feature. Now, via FlashTVNews, executive producer Marc Guggenheim has confirmed that Danielle Panabaker's Caitlin Snow and Carlos Valdes' Cisco Ramon will guest star in "The Man Under the Hood". Usually, Guggenheim tweets a script page for each episode, but opted not to this time around. Why? "The reason I’ve been holding off on tweeting the title page for 19 is [because] 19 is co-written by Geoff Johns, Andrew Kreisberg, and Greg Berlanti, the team behind the Flash, and I felt like if I tweeted that, the jig would be up. Little did I know the jig would get out itself." He then says that Snow and Ramon's appearances are "important", and discusses how this would replace the original plan of giving Flash a backdoor pilot. "Danielle Panabaker who plays Caitlin and Carlos Valdes who plays Cisco, two members of S.…

Leaked Casting Sheet For ARROW S2E19 Reveals Appearances From Two FLASH Series Regulars

Arrow star Stephen Amell previously confirmed that we will be seeing more characters from Central City on the series, despite plans being scrapped for a Flash backdoor pilot. And now, we know of at least two characters from the planned Flash spin-off series who will first be appearing on Arrow. Thanks to a Reddituser (via Superhero Movie News), a casting sheet for S2E19 - which was recently titled "The Man Under the Hood" - lists two actors who are intended to be series regulars on The Flash: Danielle Panabaker and Carlos Valdes. Panabaker plays Caitlin Snow, aka the civilian identity of Killer Frost, while Valdes is Cisco Ramon, aka the alter ego of Vibe. Below is the leaked casting sheet in extremely low quality, as well as a list of the cast for this episode.

Nightwing Featured In New Still From SON OF BATMAN

With Son of Batman set to hit stores on May 6th, we should be seeing more and more from the animated feature in the weeks to come. Thanks to @SuperPRGuy, we have a new image from the Grant Morrison adaptation, featuring Nightwing (voiced by Sean Maher). This still offers our best look at Dick Grayson yet in the film. The character wasn't present in Morrison's "Batman and Son", upon which this movie is based, so it's unknown just how big a role he will have here. Son of Batman focuses on Batman discovering that he had a son with Talia al Ghul named Damian Wayne, who becomes the new Robin.

FEATURE: Five Actors Who Should Be Considered To Play Green Lantern John Stewart In The DC Cinematic Universe

As one of DC's most iconic characters, Green Lantern is expected to debut in the DC Cinematic Universe in Warner Bros.' Justice League, if not sooner. Of course, there has been much debate on which Lantern to use. Despite the Green Lantern movie's failure, should WB bring Hal Jordan back, albeit with a different actor? Or should the studio enlist John Stewart, a well-known Lantern who can bring some much-needed diversity to the League? Below, I've compiled a list of five actors who should be considered to play the latter on the big screen.

#5 - Will Smith
A generic choice, sure, but this is a piece of casting that could easily work. Smith is one of the most recognizable actors in the world, but some can argue that his career is declining for a number of reasons. However, there's no denying that Smith would be an interesting choice for John Stewart. He has the acting chops and physicality suited, and attaching a big name to Green Lantern would help audiences forget …
