CBS’ forthcoming ‘Supergirl’ series has kept right on casting beyond its titular heroine, but as with any good DC series, villains will come out of the woodwork, some more literally than others. A new report suggests that DC’s “Lumberjack” will be the first big bad Kara Zor-El faces in following Superman’s bootsteps, but a far more sinister villain may be pulling the strings.
For a long time, Terry Crews hasn’t been particularly subtle about his desire to play a superhero. With his shaved head, absurdly muscular physique and commanding screen presence, he’s always seemed like a natural fit to play Luke Cage. But alas, that role recently went to Mike Colter (who will play the character for Marvel Studios’ new Netflix series ‘AKA Jessica Jones’), so that ship has officially sailed. However, Crews bears no grudges. In fact, he already has his sights set on another Marvel superhero.

Hard to believe, but today brings the first TV spot for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ and while it doesn’t feature much in the way of new footage, it’s definitely not hurting our excitement for the upcoming ‘Avengers’ sequel. “Trouble always comes around,” Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury says in the 30-second spot, and Ultron is most definitely major trouble.
Marvel’s upcoming ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ has opened up casting floodgates in advance of its ‘Daredevil’ predecessor even premiering a trailer for its April 10 Netflix debut, and now another name has joined the ranks. ‘Transformers’ and ‘Crisis’ star Rachael Taylor has been cast in the ‘AKA Jessica Jones’ role of Patsy “Trish” Walker, alternately known as Marvel superhero Hellcat.
In a few months, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ will be in theaters and, thanks to the deep pockets of Disney’s marketing department, Marvel’s premiere superhero team will literally be everywhere you look. However, their strongest presence will be in the toy aisles, with new LEGO sets and action figures scheduled to arrive just in time to tease the movie, delight your kids, and drain your wallet. To add insult to injury, the coolest most wallet-draining toy of them all isn’t even tied into the new movie. It’s from the first film.
Everybody knows by know of the Stan Lee cameos in the Marvel movies, and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is no exception. You probably also recognized the voice of Gary Sinise as the narrator of the Captain America exhibit at the Smithsonian in the movie.

Don't worry, we've got that, and a lot more for you, in the latest patriotic installment of You Think You Know Movies!
