Thanks to Hero Complex, we’ve got our first look at one of the new villains in the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels, Agent Kallus (voiced by David Oyelowo), right-hand man to The Inquisitor and a renowned “Rebel hunter” whose legendary mutton chops are feared across the galaxy…
“Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and Tie fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, »

It’s getting a bit difficult to keep up with all of the villain and hero appearances rumored for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, especially with that fake script floating around. Before we jump into the latest rumor to hit the web though, let’s run down what we officially know.
The likes of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are all guaranteed to appear and have been cast. Victor Stone a.k.a. Cyborg will also have a small cameo, played by Ray Fisher, that will set him up for a future Justice League appearance. Then there’s Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and returning Man of Steel cast members Amy Adams and Laurence Fishburne.
That’s it. Now, as far as rumors go, there have been plenty. We’re pretty sure Aquaman will have a small cameo as well, and that he’ll be played by Jason Momoa, »

Usually I'd categorize this sort of thing as non-news, especially with the Scoop Cold War going on out there with these megafranchises and people who love them. Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice was thrown into a turmoil similar to Star Wars once the idea of "fake scripts" became something we all addressed. For Star Wars, they actually had a whole draft by Toy Story 3's Michael Ardnt that got trashed, so it's hard to tell what story leaks we'll see on screen or what plot points are simply from an older script.
Now that the assumed plot of Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice has been thrown into the air, we're still waiting for pieces to fall before we can really lock down what (or who) we'll be seeing.
Keeping that in mind, Bleeding Cool reports:

New Suicide Squad #1
Written by Sean Ryan
Art by Jeremy Roberts
Colors by Blond
Published by DC Comics
The lineup up for the New Suicide Squad assembled by Mr. (Vic?) Sage is quite the Murderer’s Row. There’s Task Force X veterans Deadshot, Harley Quinn, and Black Manta back for another go as well as newcomer (and another Joker groupie) Joker’s Daughter and new team leader Deathstroke, whose costume is colored in a particularly striking way by Blond. The first few pages of New Suicide Squad #1 show this team in action in big wide screen panels with shattered glass, bullets, and explosions. Unfortunately, this ends up being the whole comic with Sage and Amanda Waller providing color commentary over the mayhem. Artist Jeremy Roberts shows some flashes of nice artwork, like Deathstroke and Deadshot squaring off before the big mission and any scene with Joker Daughter’s ruthlessly »

He’s already Hollywood’s highest grossing actor thanks to starring in big money franchises like Fast & Furious and G.I. Joe, but now Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is lining up yet another action movie.
This time, the charismatic wrestler turned movie star is in early talks to star in Robert Ludlum’s The Janson Directive for Universal. If he does end up joining the project, Johnson will also produce the release and the studio is said to already be on the hunt for writers to pen the script for them.
The book follows a former consular ops agent who, after leaving covert operations due to the high number of sanctioned serial killings, goes into business as private security consultant. Teamed with a sharpshooter, Janson only takes assignments that he believes will lead to helping those that are in need of it.
Universal are apparently looking at this as a Jason Bourne-alike franchise for them, »

Before we find out tomorrow the truth behind this apparently fake script for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, let’s look at what it brought to the table.
One of the biggest complaints surrounding Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is how The Man of Steel was pushed to the sidelines to allow for other characters like Batman, Wonder Woman et al to come into the fray rather than just being given his own sequel. Well, this script is a Man of Steel sequel with a couple of other characters thrown into the mix. The movie centers around the fallout of the destruction at the hands of Superman and Zod in Man of Steel and Lex Luthor’s obsession with ridding the world of “the alien” because he wants to be seen as a God. »

We know how superhero stories start: normal person gets powers, gets reluctant, becomes heroic. But why does it have to be like that?
An alien baby is evacuated from a dying home planet and grows up to discover that he can use his immense power on Earth and the values instilled by his adoptive parents to protect the world. A young boy’s parents are gunned down in front of him and he dedicates his whole life to making sure if never happens to anyone in his city again. A teenager gains exhilarating powers and is then taught the responsibility that comes with that power by the tragic death of his uncle.
These are all great examples of iconic and interesting origin stories, which shape the respective superheroes to which they relate. But in a world of reboots and endless franchise mileage, do they necessarily have to be the »

"Superman Returns" star Brandon Routh is set to play another superhero, Ray Palmer (aka The Atom), on the upcoming third season of CW's "The Arrow" TV series. TV Line learned that the actor will play a love interest for Felicity Smoak, as well as become the new head of Queen Consolidated. A previous report mentioned that we'll see Palmer suit up as "a tech-powered superhero." Ray Palmer was introduced in 1961 and is capable of shrinking to subatomic sizes. He has been a member of the Justice League and Teen Titans, and shares an adversary, Deathstroke (Manu Bennet), with Green Arrow. "Arrow" airs on Wednesdays at 8pm Est on the CW. The new season is set to premiere on October 8th. »
The character is set to appear in the upcoming third season of the series. The news comes from TV Line, who reports that Palmer will serve as a love interest for Felicity Smoak. He will serve as the new head of Queen Consolidated. Palmer’s plans for Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division will be shrouded in mystery.
In case you're not familiar with the character, he's capable of shrinking to subatomic sizes, so he could run across one of Arrow's Arrows if he wanted too. Ray Palmer was created by Julius Schwartz, Gardner Fox, and Gil Kane in 1961. He's a member of the Justice League (and Teen Titans at one point). The Atom and Green Arrow also share a common villain in Deathstroke. »

When The CW series Arrow returns for a third season this fall, it will be with a very familiar actor donning the persona of a DC Comics character. Superman Returns star Brandon Routh will be joining Arrow to portray Ray Palmer, the man who will become The Atom. For those not familiar with DC Comics, The Atom is an Ant-Man type hero who is able to shrink himself to the size of, well, an atom. The character has been a part of both the Justice League as well as the Suicide Squad, the latter »

He only got the chance to play Superman once in Superman Returns, but Brandon Routh – who found great success on television as part of the cast of cult favourite hit Chuck – is now getting a second chance in Arrow. However, he won’t be playing Superman, but will instead be the hero known as The Atom!
According to TVLine, the former Man of Steel will have a recurring role as Ray Palmer – a fan favourite character who has served as a member of the Justice League – in the third season of the hit series, and he’s described as being an unparalleled scientist and inventor who will play an unexpected role in the lives of Oliver and (rumoured love interest) Felicity as the new owner of Queen Consolidated.
Palmer’s plans for Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division will be shrouded in mystery, and there’s no word on when »

Brandon Routh is trading in his blue and red tights for another pair of blue and red tights. EW has confirmed that the Superman Returns actor has booked a recurring role in Arrow’s third season as Ray Palmer, a.k.a. The Atom.
According to TVLine, Ray Palmer, an “unparalleled scientist and inventor,” is Queen Consolidated’s new owner and has mysterious plans for Queen Consolidated’s Applied Sciences Division. He is rumored to be a love interest for Felicity.
In the comics, Ray Palmer/The Atom has the power to alter the size of his body and can shrink down to subatomic levels. »

Years before "Man of Steel" launched the debate of how many city blocks Superman could successfully destroy while still being classifiable as a "superhero," there was "Superman Returns." A venture launched by "X-Men" mastermind Bryan Singer and piggybacking, weirdly enough, on Richard Donner's original "Superman" movie, it was unsuccessful, and anchored by a young actor who seemed destined for super-stardom... Until he wasn't. Well, that actor, Brandon Routh, will make a return to his comic book origins, with a supporting role on the CW's wildly popular "Arrow."
According to TV Line, Routh, who also popped up in the comic book-derived masterpiece "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" (not to mention the less successful "Dylan Dog," based on the beloved Italian horror comic), will play Ray Palmer in the third season of "Arrow." For those of you with successful romantic partnerships, Ray Palmer's alter-ego is The Atom, who can shrink down to microscopic sizes, »

Back in November, "Arrow" star Stephen Amell posted two comic book covers that feature Green Arrow alongside the rest of the Justice League superheroes. Fans jumped to the conclusion that he'll be playing the superhero in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." Then a few days ago, Amell mentioned that he'll be attending the San Diego Comic-Con and that something big will be revealed during the "Arrow" panel. This once again started rumors that the actor will be appeared in "Batman v Superman." Amell has now decided to comment on this. He wrote: "I appreciate all the support and enthusiasm, but not everything I post is a cryptic indicator that I'm going to be in 'Batman v Superman.' I'm not going to be in 'Batman v Superman.'" »
Is Stephen Amell as Green Arrow going to appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice? That question has been hanging out there ever since the Man of Steel sequel was first announced with its intention to serve as a bridge into a Justice League movie. Arrow and more specifically Amell fans want to see his Oliver Queen join the DC Cinematic Universe, and finally the actor has spoken out with what appears to be a definitive answer to the big question.
Recently a new rumor popped up suggesting that several DC Comics superheroes would make cameo appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and see their roles expanded upon in the subsequent Justice League film. This happened around the same time Amell promised "big things" would be revealed at Comic-Con via his very active Facebook page.
While every creative team change irks some and brings joy to others, it is necessary to let someone else take the wheel from time to time. Wonder Woman has had writer Brian Azzarello and artist Cliff Chiang at the helm for three years now, and with their time coming to a close, DC has announced who will be taking over the book for the (hopefully) considerable future. Starting in November, that will be writer Meredith Finch and artist David Finch.
Meredith hasn't really worked in mainstream superhero books before, with her only previous comic work being Tales From Oz by Zenescope. Most people are familiar with David's work, especially his more prominent covers for the big two over the last 5 to 6 years, and you can see his first completed image from the upcoming arc above. David Finch can draw, there is no doubt about that, and the image above is gorgeous, »

Many fans of the CW’s Arrow were hopeful that star Stephen Amell would show up as Green Arrow in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and someday join the Justice League. However, according to Amell himself, such a crossover is not happening, and he won’t be joining the likes of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Cyborg on the big screen.
A few days ago Amell posted something on his Facebook page about “winning” Comic-Con with some good news, which fans of course took to mean that he would be announcing his involvement in Batman V Superman or Justice League. However, he himself has denied those rumors, and took to Facebook to say:
“I appreciate all the support and enthusiasm, but not everything I post is a cryptic indicator that I’m going to be in Batman V Superman. I’m not going to be in Batman V Superman. »
