Thanks to Comic Book Movie, we’ve got a new look at Henry Cavill on the set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, this time in his Clark Kent disguise, complete with glasses…

Meanwhile, co-star Jesse Eisenberg has spoken briefly about his role as Superman’s arch-nemesis Lex Luthor, stating that: “They asked me if I wanted to play the part before they sent me the script. I’m not sure how it worked, but it’s something I read with the understanding that I could do the role, If I… You know, they don’t just hand the scripts out. But I really liked it on its own terms. I would do it if it was for free and it was tiny… There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then as actor makes it his or her own. I got »

"Arrow" - Enter DC Comics' 'Katana'

18 hours ago | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek a revealing image of actress Rila Fukushima ("The Wolverine") cast in The CW's "Arrow" as DC Comics' female superhero character 'Katana' :

Katana debuted in a special insert in DC Comics' "The Brave and the Bold" #200 (July 1983), as a member of the first "Outsiders" team by writer Mike W. Barr and illustrator Jim Aparo.

Katana is a highly proficient hand-to-hand combatant and swordswoman, having studied martial arts as a child and later being trained by the samurai 'Tadashi'.

"...her 'Soultaker' sword, along with its non-powered twin, was forged in the 14th century by 'Muramasa', whose swords were said to be cursed and make those who were evil commit evil acts. It sometimes takes the souls of those it kills, storing them inside the sword, where they can engage in limited communication with whoever wields it. These souls can be reincarnated by the means of a sacred ritual, »

Rila Fukushima To Replace Devon Aoki As Katana On Arrow

28 August 2014 12:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a bit of a casting change-up, The Wolverine actress Rila Fukushima has replaced Sin City‘s Devon Aoki as Katana on Arrow‘s upcoming third season. Aoki landed the role back in July, but has had to leave the series due to a scheduling conflict.

For those unfamiliar with the character, Katana is the alter-ego of Tatsu Yamashiro, a Japanese woman who’s skilled with a blade and has a knack for martial arts. She’ll debut in the season premiere in flashback sequences depicting Oliver Queen’s time in Hong Kong under A.R.G.U.S. custody.

Katana is just one of many DC Comics characters headed to the series, as we’ll also be seeing Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom, Matt Ward as the dangerous archer Komodo, Peter Stormare as the New 52 version of Count Vertigo, J.R. Ramirez as boxing champion and vigilante Wildcat, »

Is Scoot McNairy playing Jimmy Olsen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?

28 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week the internet exploded with rumors and unfounded speculation that Argo and Halt and Catch Fire actor Scoot McNairy is playing The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The rumors sprung from photos showing McNairy on set with green-screen socks which led to fan speculation that his legs would be altered in post-production to account for super speed.

That rumor is, honestly, a bit ridiculous and likely isn’t true. Now a new rumor has surfaced… that’s so crazy it just might work.

The fansite The Devils Eyes has posted an exclusive report, claiming that McNairy is playing none other than Superman’s longtime pal Jimmy Olsen. They’ve talked with an extra who worked on the film extensively, who said the following:

“Scoot is playing Jimmy Olsen, but with a bit of a twist. Jimmy was injured during the battle of Zod vs Superman. His »

Rila Fukushima lands major role in Arrow

27 August 2014 10:53 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Wolverine actress Rila Fukushima will play Tatsu Yamashiro in the forthcoming Arrow

We've heard some casting news from CW’s Arrow this morning, including a very familiar face for fans of the Wolverine's film antics.

Having already played Yukio, a deadly assassin/ precognative mutant, in The Wolverine, Fukushima is now jumping ships from the X-Men series to the DC televisual universe.

She will play Tatsu Yamashiro, "a Japanese martials arts expert who wields a deadly sword" - a role which certainly suits her skillset. Her character will also have the codename Katana, inspired by her weapon of choice.

Fukushima replaces Devon Aoki, who you may have heard was originally cast in the role before a scheduling conflict arose.

It’s believed that Tatsu will mainly appear in the flashback sequences that pop up throughout Arrow, as a key inspiration to the younger Oliver Queen.

Fan artwork of Jason Momoa as Aquaman

25 August 2014 3:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although we’ve had no official word from Warner Bros., and the actor himself has denied it on multiple occasions, it seems to be one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood that Jason Momoa is set to portray Aquaman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming DC ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, along with the subsequent solo movie of the King of Atlantis. Momoa’s “casting” has met with a generally positive reception from fans, and now artist Rahzzah has put together some fan artwork showing how the former Game of Thrones star could look as Aquaman, which may go some way to silencing any naysayers. Take a look…

What do you make of that look? Is Momoa right for Aquaman? Let us know your thoughts…

19 August 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Yesterday, we saw our first tantalizing image of Argo actor Scoot McNairy on the set of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wearing green stockings that are used for adding digital effects in post-production. Below, are a few more snaps of him with them on. Who do you think he is playing in the film? Could he be The Flash? Could he be Metallo? Or, could he be a guy with really bad fashion sense? It's a mystery! Oh, and there is also another shot of Japanese actress Tao Okamoto ("The Wolverine") in her 'Mercy Graves' costume. Now, let the bickering begin!

New Batman v Superman set photos featuring Scoot McNairy, Holly Hunter, Tao Okamoto and Henry Cavill’s Superman

18 August 2014 11:34 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we saw some photos of Ben Affleck on the Detroit set of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and now a few other cast members have been spotted by eagle-eyed fans.

Just Jared has some photos of Henry Cavill, sporting a black robe that hides his Superman costume, while Batman-News.com has a very intriguing photo of Argo actor Scoot McNairy, who recently landed a secretive role in the film. The picture features McNairy in knee-high green socks that will be altered in post-production. The only question is, what happens to his legs? Is he Metallo, sporting robotic limbs underneath his business-casual digs? Is he The Flash? Or is he legless, Lieutenant Dan style?

We also have our first glimpses at actresses Tao Okamoto and Holly Hunter, though they’re even less revealing than Scoot’s photo. Check out all the set pics, and sound off with your »
