Over three seasons Arrow has been no stranger to the Suicide Squad (though perhaps less now with a movie in the works), but few could forget the excitement of the CW drama first teasing Harley Quinn with a brief cameo. That said, it seems Arrow may have had larger plans for Dr. Harleen Quinzel, ones that DC smashed with a giant sledgehammer.

It’s no secret that Hollywood has a hard time embracing older women (related: this brilliant Amy Schumer sketch), but there’s one who will never have to struggle to get work: Wonder Woman. The immortal superhero has been alive for centuries, and in case you were worried that the new Warner Bros. iteration of the character would try to make her more human, you needn’t worry anymore.

Even if you aren’t familiar with his comic book counterpart, the name of the villainous Apocalypse definitely conjures up ideas of complete global annihilation, a bad guy who could very well usher in the End Times. And that’s the mega-conflict the X-Men are facing into in next year’s X-Men: Apocalypse, which sees the team battling the most epic threat yet. Oscar Isaac is set to play the role of the big bad Apocalypse, and although he can’t say too much, he is promising some pretty big things.

When it was first announced that director Josh Trank had cast Michael B. Jordan in the role of the traditionally-white Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four, there was a bit of (sadly predictable) fan backlash. It was the same sort of ignorant, unreasonable outcry we’ve endured anytime someone suggests we have a Spider-Man who isn’t white (even though we have one in the comics). Jordan has mostly kept quiet about the senseless anger regarding his casting, but the actor has finally delivered a thoughtful response.
