First though, he spoke about the headline-grabbing 'BatKid' story:
"I just think it's great. It's a great day for the little guy. I just think Make-a-Wish and San Francisco did such an amazing thing to organize that. You just think of the delight in that little fella's heart, running around doing that.
Then also, as someone who played Batman, it's great to see that the symbol of Batman is so much bigger than any one person, than any film, than any comic book, any TV series, that's really what it's all about. It's irrelevant which actor is playing it, we're irrelevant in that sense. But for little Miles to have such a great day, »

Director Zack Snyder recently confirmed at a Man of Steel fan event that Lex Luthor will play a role in the Batman Vs. Superman film. There are even spoiler filled rumors about how the character will be portrayed in the film that you can read about here.
There's now a rumor from Supermansupersite claiming that Lost star Terry O'Quinn could be up for the role of Lex Luthor. If this is true, it would be pretty awesome. According to a source close to the production, O'Quinn is on a short list of actors being considered for the part. I can actually see him in the role, and if he got it I wouldn't complain.
O'Quinn is a character actor who has been in a ton of films and TV series over the years, and most recently starred in ABC supernatural series 666 Park Avenue.
Bryan Cranston was rumored to be up »

Talk of a Superman movie inevitably spurs rumors about Lex Luthor involvement, and the latest of these has Lost's Terry O'Quinn at their center. Well, he is an older white man rocking the bald look with some serious glower power. Superman Super Site (via JoBlo) says sources close to the production being mounted in Detroit Mi--which will serve as Gotham City in the Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs Superman--say O'Quinn is on director Zack Snyder's short list for the role of Luthor. But Sss itself says to take this rumor with a grain of salt. At a live fan event, Snyder himself has confirmed Luthor will appear in Batman vs Superman. But when it comes to who might play the part, he's been understandably tight-lipped. In August, Bryan Cranston was rumored for Luthor, but the Breaking Bad star was quick to shoot that down, though not before »
Aside from the announcement that Ben Affleck is set to don the cape and cowl as The Dark Knight, we'd had little in the way of official news from Zack Snyder's upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman, and instead we've had to trawl through endless rumour and speculation, much of which has centred around the casting of Lex Luthor.
First up came word that Mark Strong was set to swap Green Lantern's Sinestro for the role of the billionaire industrialist and criminal genius before the notoriously unreliable CosmicBookNews shattered what little rep it had left by stating categorically that Bryan Cranston was 100% nailed on in the role as part of a six-film deal with Warner Bros. for the DC Cinematic Universe, and that everything would be confirmed following the season finale of Breaking Bad some six weeks ago.
Since then, attention has turned to the possible inclusion of Wonder Woman, »

Two days ago, We reported a rumor that Lost star Terry O'Quinn was DC Comics and Warner Bros. number one choice for Lex Luthor in Batman Vs. Superman. Now, Comic Book Movie is reporting that information as false.
According to their trusted source, Terry O'Quinn was never up for the role. The Following's James Purefoy was being considered, but the actor walked away, stating that he wasn't interested in taking on the part.
That's not all, though! It's also being reported that The Flash will be in the movie. He will only appear as Barry Allen in a cameo, and will not be featured in his costume. Warner Bros. wants Arrow's Grant Gustin, who is starring as the character in a three episode arc on the CW show with the hopes of a spin-off, to also play Barry in Batman Vs. Superman. This all depends, though, on how »
Oh look, another Batman Vs Superman rumor! Sigh. As it has been for most Batman Vs Superman news recently, take this following information with a grain (or mountain) of salt. A couple of days ago a site claimed Terry O'Quinn was on a shortlist for Lex Luthor in Batman Vs Superman. Now Cbm has learned from a source that O'Quinn was never up for the part. The source says James Purefoy (John Carter, Fox's The Following) was approached for the role, but he »

There has been a lot of talk lately about the involvement of Wonder Woman and Nightwing in Batman Vs. Superman. Olga Kurylenko, Gal Gadot and Elodie Yung are reportedly in contention for Wonder Woman, with Adam Driver, Penn Badgley and Ezra Miller up for the Nightwing role, although neither character has been officially confirmed to be in the sequel.
Another character still yet to be cast is the villainous Lex Luthor, whose involvement was confirmed by director Zack Snyder during last weekend's online fan event. A new report has surfaced, indicating that Lost star Terry O'Quinn is on the short list of contenders to play Superman's bald nemesis.
It isn't known who else is on the studio's list. Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston was once rumored to be a front runner for the villain, although the actor shot down those rumors in September. Mark Strong was also rumored to be a contender this June, »
Sources tell the fan site that the actor -- best known for playing John Locke on the hit ABC series "Lost" -- is on the short list for the diabolical mastermind.
Physically, O'Quinn is a great match to play Luthor, and in "Lost," "666 Park Avenue," and other guest television roles, has proven he can be mysterious and menacing.
Still, it's not 100 percent that Luthor will be in "Batman vs. Superman," and until Snyder announces a name, all rumors should be taken with a grain -- really, »

Lost actor Terry O'Quinn is the latest name dropped as a possible candidate for the role of Lex Luthor in Batman vs Superman. At least that's the latest from the Superman Super Site and Man of Steel Fan Page. It's reported that O'Quinn is one of several actors on Zack Snyder's shortlist so there's no guarantee he'll get the role. But I'll certainly admit, O'Quinn definitely has the look. Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) was previously rumored to be up for the role, as well as Mark Strong (John Carter, Sherlock Holmes) but both actors debunked have since debunked those rumors. With filming expected to begin in earnest in early 2014,expect official casting announcements to come sooner rather than later. Related Content: Sdcc '13: Jim Lee On The 'Superman Vs.

All the Batman Vs Superman news lately has been Wonder Woman and Nightwing rumors, but what about Lex Luthor? It was rumored Bryan Cranston had been cast as Luthor for the new film, however the actor denied it back in September, and we haven't heard anything since. Now Superman Super Site has learned from several sources who are close to the production for the film that Terry O'Quinn is on a shortlist to play Lex Luthor in Batman Vs Superman. The Lost actor is only the »

When a horror film sports the tagline "Based on" or "Inspired by actual events," the terror quotient almost always goes up, and the films often do big box office numbers. A great recent example of this phenomenon is The Conjuring, which cleaned up during its theatrical run this Summer. The idea that the film we are about to watch is rooted in some level of truth makes the film experience more intense; even if the plot is 99% fiction, the experience is still enriched by the knowledge that there is even a shred of truth to what you are about to witness. Back in March, we ran a piece showcasing ten terrifying movies based on actual events, and due to positive reader response, we're now proud to bring you ten more horror films that take a cue from reality. A Haunting in Connecticut This 2009 film is inspired by the experience of the Snedeker family, »

The year 1991 is the focus for our latest underappreciated films list, which includes dramas, thrillers, and a smattering of horror...
Ah, 1991. The year Robert Patrick ran after cars in Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and Kevin Costner grew a spectacular mullet for Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves. But outside the top ten blockbuster list, there lies an entire world of other, less celebrated films to discover.
Some of the movies on this list have been included because they were overlooked in theatres, while others have been added because they were unfairly dismissed by critics. One or two others were modest successes, but (whisper it) we decided to include them anyway because we really, really like them.
So here, for your delectation, is our pick of 25 underappreciated films from 1991.
The actor who plays Breaking Bad's Hank has landed the lead in a new hit show, thereby proving the rule that co-stars, not stars, have the most to gain from a TV success
In case you haven't heard, Breaking Bad is almost over. For stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, the end of the critically adored series signals a likely transition into movies. At least, that's the convey0r-belt thinking of a status-obsessed entertainment industry, where Emmy-winning TV stars automatically earn a perceived promotion to the multiplex after fulfilling their small-screen contract.
Things are different if you're the second or third banana in a beloved TV drama about to shut up shop, but this also affords you certain freedoms. As the world holds its breath to witness the fate of Bryan Cranston's Walter White, co-star Dean Norris – who evolved his character Hank Schrader from cocksure DEA meathead to »

The youngest Jonas brother will play a computer hacker involved in a case the Five-0 team is investigating and "whose motives might be even more complicated than they suspect," CBS says.
It's been nearly nine years since we were first introduced to the survivors of Oceanic flight 815, and J. J. Abrams and TV masterminds alike have been trying to recreate the phenomenon that was "Lost" ever since.
Michael Emerson, who played Ben Linus on the hit ABC series, has been a part of that effort. The actor currently stars on the Abrams-produced "Person of Interest" on CBS, and while promoting the show at Comic-Con in San Diego, he told Zap2It's Terri Schwartz that fans might see the "Lost" cast reunite at the convention next year in honor of the show's 10-year anniversary.
"I've heard some murmurings of some kind of reunion. Whether it will take place at Comic-Con or not I'm not sure," Emerson told the site. "No matter what happens, if anything happens, it will be really hard logistically to put it together."
In another corner of Comic-Con, Emerson's »

There's plenty of evil at The Drake on 666 Park Avenue but ABC is likely worried that the show's ratings will just be bad -- perhaps so bad that they'll have to cancel the new TV series. Will that happen? Stay tuned.

Below are the TV show's ratings for the 2012-13 season, the best way to tell if 666 Park Avenue is going to be cancelled or renewed for a second season.

Though oil companies tend to get overly demonized in light of the green energy movement that's swept the nation over the last two decades, the truth is that for save for some truly epic blunders (like the Exxon Valdez or Bp's recent disaster in the Gulf of Mexico) they're just trying to run a (ridiculously lucrative) business that adheres to the safe business practices set forth by government regulation. But what if one day a desire for profit outweighed any sense of safety that caused something to go horribly wrong in the process of drilling for oil and led to an absolute worst case scenario? That's the premise of the eco-horror thriller Ring of Fire. It's entertaining enough with Michael Vartan and Terry O'Quinn giving the film some badly needed credibility, but it's hard not to feel like you're watching a 180-minute anti-oil campaign video with lots of fire and special effects. »
