DC News Round-Up: Arrow, Man of Steel, Batman, Wonder Woman

dc-comics-logo3Whether it’s CW, Warner Bros or the DC stable themselves, the world-wide rumour mill is full of mutterings!

Arrow Season 2: so in addition to Black Canary, The Flash and possibly Metamorph joining the fray, the new poster for Arrow Season 2 also shows villain Deathstroke the Terminator as a regular feature.

Man of Steel 2 / Batman vs Superman: First up, Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston has being signed up for a 6-film deal as Superman’s chief arch-enemy Lex Luthor, starting with Man Of Steel 2. After Gene Hackman & Kevin Spacey, them is big thespian shoes to fill Bryan…

And of course, I could not ignore the subject of Ben Affleck – not only being signed up as the new Batman, but apparently committing to a 13-film deal (think Hugh Jackman as Wolverine – that 10 second appearance in X-Men: First Class would count as one film). Unlucky for some Ben!?!

And speaking to the  Batman, Ben Affleck’s oft acting mate Matt Damon responded to the internet meme that he would be Robin to Affleck’s Batman: “I am a little older than Ben. I never saw Robin as older than Batman. “Somebody sent me [the] picture actually. It was really funny. But it’s safe to say I won’t be Robin.”

‘Amazon’ / Wonder Woman: Sadly, if you hadn’t heard it, CW president Mark Pedowitz has confirmed that Amazon is currently not moving  forward. “Amazon is on pause right now,” he said during a presentation at the TCA Press Tour. “The script isn’t quite where  we want it. It’s an iconic DC character, and we are not going to put it  on unless it works. And now, having the DC universe expand, with the origins of  Black Canary coming on this year [in Arrow], as well as potential  origins of the Flash, it’s better to wait and get it right…”
