Today in news to make you go “duh,” Margot Robbie is talking about her role as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, the upcoming DC film from Fury director David Ayer. The actress reveals that Ayer’s project is closer in tone to Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, which helped kickstart the gritty superhero movie trend—but that’s something we all assumed, right?

A few weeks back, Zack Snyder revealed our first look at Jason Momoa as Aquaman, who will make his big screen debut in Batman vs. Superman—along with a few other notable DC heroes. With all the casting info and plot details we’ve learned over the last year, that film seems like it should be about three hours long when all is said and done. No stranger to speaking out about his role as Aquaman, Momoa has once again opened up about the upcoming film, revealing just how big his part is, as well as his surprise when Snyder tweeted that photo.

Super, if not-particularly surprising news, everyone! CBS forthcoming Supergirl series has followed The Flash’s lead in returning past franchise stars to the new edition, recruiting Lois & Clark star Dean Cain and original cinematic Supergirl Helen Slater for “top-secret” roles. Might the former Superman and Supergirl’s characters be so easy to identify in CBS’ rendition, however?

‘Avengers 2’ — Chris Hemsworth Says ‘Age of Ultron’ Is an ‘Onslaught’ That Will Not Stop

We're on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, inside the new Avengers Tower; formerly Stark Tower and now converted to a de facto headquarters for the Earth’s mightiest heroes. It’s all very sleek and shiny and pretty much exactly what you'd expect from a place Tony Stark calls home. Except now, it's a complete disaster. There's broken glass scattered across the floor. Furniture is destroyed. There are giant gashes in the wall. There's a production assistant dramatically swinging a giant cape around (the actors film their fight scenes without the cape, and the cape is added later in post-production).

We thought it unlikely that Arrow could spawn yet another CW spinoff to see The Atom joining The Flash but it turns out the network’s real plan is infinitely crazier. The CW is reportedly working on a new series to feature not only Brandon Routh’s Atom, but also Victor Garber’s Firestorm, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, and craziest of all, Caity Lotz’s Black Canary!

When The Avengers arrived in 2012, the massive final battle between Earth’s mightiest heroes and Loki’s alien army ended up being much bigger and more exciting than the trailers suggested. From the sound of things, we may be in for a similar treat with Avengers 2. In a new interview, writer/director Joss Whedon discussed many aspects of the upcoming sequel, but it’s his comments about the Avengers 2 ending that should get you the most interested.
