‘The Flash’ managed to make quick work of Captain Cold and Heat Wave in this past week’s “Revenge of the Rogues,” stopping on the way to secure a season 2 pickup, but will DC’s Pied Piper be so easy to quiet? See for yourself in the full set of photos from next Tuesday’s all-new ‘The Flash’ installment “The Sound and the Fury!”

We’ve heard for some time now that Bryan Singer’s ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ is casting the roles of young Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Storm, as the film will focus more on the younger generation of ‘First Class’ rather than once again uniting both old and new casts. While several names were floated, Fox has officially settled on their choices, with ‘Game of Thrones’ star Sophie Turner set to play Jean, ‘Joe’ star Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, and ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’ star Alexandra Shipp taking on the role of Storm.

Ever since Marvel formally announced the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as Sorcerer Supreme in their upcoming ‘Doctor Strange’ film, we haven’t heard much else about the project. Set to be directed by Scott Derrickson, the film is currently scheduled for a 2016 release date, so it’s about time that we started hearing a little more about who else will be joining Cumberbatch as the project heads closer to production—like Chiwetel Ejiofor, who is reportedly in talks for a role.

There’s no replacing Tom Hardy, really, but Warner Bros. sure is trying. Following yesterday’s news that Jake Gyllenhaal had also passed on the role of ‘Suicide Squad’ de facto leader Rick Flagg comes word that the studio is already eyeing a couple of potential replacements: Joel Edgerton and former ‘The Walking Dead’ star Jon Bernthal. They’re definitely going for someone tough and a bit gritty, but obviously charismatically handsome.

‘Aquaman’ does’t hit theaters until 2018, but we’ve already begun hearing early reports about the project, which stars Jason Momoa in the role he was basically born to play with that magnificent damn hair. Previously, it was reported that ‘Mud’ director Jeff Nichols was being eyed to helm the aquatic superhero flick, but it looks like WB has added another name to the mix: ‘300: Rise of an Empire’ director Noam Murro. And rumor has it they’ve also got their sights set on ‘Dredd’ star Karl Urban for a supporting role.

When the X-Men return to the big-screen in May of 2016 they will face a new (and also super-old) nemesis: Apocalypse, an ancient Egyptian mutant hellbent on world domination. Onscreen, Apocalypse will be portrayed by Oscar Isaac, the rising star of ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ and ‘A Most Violent Year,’ and, later in 2015, ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ where he plays Poe Dameron. In the comics, Apocalypse typically looks sort of like you see him above, with elaborate blue armor, slate-colored face, and inhuman blue lips. This look, it’s pretty clear to me, would not translate to film (at least not in a way that wouldn’t evoke instantaneous laughter from viewers).

CBS ‘Supergirl’ recently revealed a more procedural format that had many fans worried about the series, but the casting of Kara Zor-El should leave all positively ‘Glee’-ful. Melissa Benoist will don a cape and tights for the title role in CBS’ ‘Supergirl’ series, chronicling the adventures of Superman’s cousin.

There are some actors, like Idris Elba, who are weary of starring in big-budget superhero movies (“torture” was the specific word he used to describe the process). Anthony Mackie is not one of those actors. In fact, he couldn’t be more excited about his role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only is he completely jacked up about starring in ‘Captain America 3’, he wants to star in every Marvel sequel. “Me and Groot can boogie!”

It looks like ‘Suicide Squad’ is still searching for its Rick Flagg. Following Tom Hardy’s departure from Warner Bros. upcoming DC super villain project, Jake Gyllenhaal was being eyed to take over. But the actor has basically said “Nah, bro, I’m good” and passed on the film as well. With David Ayer’s film hitting the big screen in 2016, WB still has a little time to cast the central role.
