The boys of Magic Mike are returning to theaters this summer, and while a couple of their old friends have been left behind, they’re welcoming a handful of new cast members, including Elizabeth Banks, Donald Glover and Andie MacDowell. Warner Bros. has unleashed almost 50 new stills from Magic Mike XXL, featuring old cast members and new, and you can even spot original Magic Mike director Steven Soderbergh hanging out on set.

Remember how Elizabeth Banks had such a great time during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, accepting one of those golden popcorn trophies from the 'Magic Mike' hunks?

Plus, meet Penguin's mommy in photos from episode 2, "Selina Kyle!"

FOX's forthcoming Batman prequel TV series 'Gotham' has largely reworked footage of its September 22 pilot premiere in the most recent trailers, but the latest look at our new DC drama proves the most tantalizing yet. See the good, the evil and the beginning of FOX's 'Gotham,' along with a potential Joker tease in the latest spot for the new Batman drama!
We presumed that FOX's forthcoming 'Batman' prequel TV series, 'Gotham,' would next set its sights on casting a young Bruce Wayne, but its latest choice is far more surprising. Jada Pinkett Smith joined the series as a regular to portray an original 'Gotham' creation as gangster Fish Mooney, none other than future "Penguin" Oswald Cobblepot's boss!
