A ways back, CBS' Supergirl let slip that Kara would first tackle an obscure DC villain named "Lumberjack," calling for an actor of Game of Thrones-like stature. Now, the DC drama has officially cast The Mentalist and TV Terminator star Owain Yeoman as Supergirl's first foe, albeit switched to the villainous "Vartox."

Anchorman director Adam McKay came pretty close to directing Ant-Man before Marvel brought Peyton Reed in to replace Edgar Wright. While McKay’s scheduling conflicts wouldn’t allow for the director to direct for the studio last year, he still lent a helping hand, working with Paul Rudd to spruce up the screenplay a bit. Apparently McKay made something of an impression on Marvel — rumor has it they’re eyeing him to direct an upcoming project.

Jubilee is one of the more wildly divisive characters from X-Men — you either love or loathe her to pieces. Throughout five X-Men films and a few spinoffs, Jubilee has never really been featured, although she did put in some very minor appearances in the first few films. That’s all changing now as director Bryan Singer has cast newcomer Lana Condor as Jubilee for X-Men: Apocalypse.

The Fantastic Four marketing campaign so far has been a little unusual. The movie doesn't look that bad, but it almost seems like Fox is scared of it. So far, they skipped Comic-Con, waited until February to release a teaser trailer and yesterday's poster was just a rehash of a previously released publicity still. So, we guess it shouldn't be at all surprising that our first look at The Thing in full on “clobberin time” mode is from someone's Instagram page.

Fox
Earlier today, we reported the rumor that not only has Captain Marvel been cast, but she’ll be making her first appearance in the already superhero-heavy Avengers: Age of Ultron. Having major superheroes make cameos or debut in other films from their respective studios has become the norm, so it’s hardly surprising to hear that X-Men: Apocalypse — which is said to primarily focus on the First Class cast — will feature a few cameos from other X-Men…including one pretty exciting mutant in particular.

20th Century Fox
In an age where audiences are inundated with superhero movies and superhero movie news, Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot has distinguished itself from the pack by being the movie that no one knows anything about. Aside from that vague, Interstellar-inspired teaser trailer, most of what we know about this film comes from hearsay and gossip. Depending on who you talk to, the film is either coming along fine or it’s an incomprehensible disaster. Could the brand new poster for the film give us anything new to chew on?
