11 August 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With production still underway on Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in Detroit, more videos have surfaced from the set featuring car chases, star Ben Affleck and potentially a scene involving an appearance by Superman. There's also a few more rumors that have cropped up over the last few days.

First up, Movieweb suggests the character of Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) will be responsible for much of the city infrastructure damage we've see in the photos and videos so far. How exactly is the big question.

The film's producer Michael Uslan has confirmed to App that despite online reports suggesting the character is in his 50s, Ben Affleck is portraying Bruce Wayne as a man in his mid-40s.

ComicBook.com has posted a photo from the set which shows a large canvas painting. From the painting's appearance, it has been suggested that "Watchmen" and "Supernatural" actor »

Our weekly round-up of all the latest superhero news and talking points, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Cinematic Universe, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, Black Panther, Daredevil, Deadpool, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Venom Carnage, Kick-Ass 3 and more….

Well, the big showdown between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America 3 is no more, with Warner Bros. blinking and shifting the release of BvS away from Marvel’s May 6th 2016 date to March 25th 2016 (a wise move, considering it will now face very little in the way of competition). The news was followed by the announcement that Warner Bros. has finally pulled the trigger on a DC Cinematic Universe by setting a further Nine »

Photo: Jeffrey Dean Morgan is Bruce Wayne's Father in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

7 August 2014 2:58 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Director Zack Snyder is currently filming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" in Detroit, where the props department was moving a bunch of paintings. One of those paintings is of an older man, who may be Thomas Wayne, the father of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). While we are just guessing that that's Thomas Wayne, there are plenty of clues to support that. The painting looks to be of some rich founder of a major company and the person strongly resembles actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who appeared in Snyder's "Watchmen." So did the director bring back Morgan to play Batman's father? Seems that way. Take a look at the painting below and let us know what you think. Photo: (click to enlarge) »

Is Jeffrey Dean Morgan playing Thomas Wayne in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

7 August 2014 12:07 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A new Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice casting rumor has hit the web, and I’ve got to say it would be pretty great if it were true. New set photos have been leaking for the film left and right, and an eagle-eyed fan noticed something particularly interesting on Wednesday. Check out the image below…

Is that… Jeffrey Dean Morgan? You know, the guy who played The Comedian in Watchmen?

It sure does look like Morgan, and if it is him, it looks like he’s playing the late Thomas Wayne. It’ll likely be more of a cameo than anything, and may not go beyond that portrait. But it would be a great nod to Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation, and a fun Easter egg for fans. Also, Morgan was one of the names tossed about when casting for Batman was underway. He may not have landed the role, »

TV on Tap: Dermot Mulroney Gets “Shameless,” “Scandal” Won’t Last Eight Seasons and “The Big Bang Theory” Still Negotiating Cast Contracts

News

HBO is adapting Broadway play All the Way as a movie. Bryan Cranston, who won a Tony for his portrayal as President Lyndon Johnson, will reprise his role. The story follow Johnson in the year after Kennedy‘s assassination.

Dermot Mulroney has signed up for a story arc on Shameless as Fiona‘s latest suitor. While he’ll play a new character, TVLine describes him as basically replacing the character that was played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Dermot Mulroney, not to be confused with the guy who was on American Horror Story.

Former Daily Show showrunner Rory Albanese — who worked on the show for 14 years — is returning to Comedy Central’s late night lineup. He’ll be in charge of the upcoming Minority Report, the show that will replace The Colbert Report. That sounds like a pretty promising sign.

Shameless Taps Dermot Mulroney as Fiona's Season 5 Love Interest

16 July 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Is Shameless‘ Fiona Gallagher angling to be the next Bachelorette?

The Showtime dramedy has tapped Dermot Mulroney for a major Season 5 arc as a potential suitor for Emmy Rossum’s character, according to the network.

Mulroney, who was last seen on NBC’s ill-fated Crisis, will recur as “ex-bad boy and recovering addict” Sean Pierce, Fiona’s manager at Patsy’s Pies — where she began working in the Season 4 finale. Throughout the season-long arc, Sean will take an interest in Fiona »

Dermot Mulroney to join 'Shameless' for season 5

16 July 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Dylan McDermott is coming to "Shameless"! Wait, that's not right. Derbel McDillett is coming to "Shameless"! Also not right. Dermot Mulroney is coming to "Shameless!" That's the one. The frequently-confused-for-McDermott actor will be joining the fifth season of Showtime's acclaimed series, playing "ex-bad boy and recovering addict Sean Pierce," who will be the new manager at the diner diner where Emmy Rossum's Fiona got a job at in last season's finale. Though it will be a new character, he's essentially filling the slot of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who was introduced in that exact capacity (and with that history) in the season 4 finale. It's a shame Morgan couldn't stick around, given how good he was in that episode (and how refreshing it was to see him in full character actor mode for the first time in a while), but I suppose the same diner can't employ two different ex-bad boy recovering addicts in managerial capacities. »
