RYAN REYNOLDS FIGHTING FOR DEADPOOL TO BE R-RATED03/30/15 @ 6:48 pm EST
Appearing as a presenter at the 2015 Jameson Empire Awards, Henry Cavill fielded a few questions about Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice
According to Cavill, it’s been a while since he actually wore the Superman costume.
“The last time I wore the suit…it’s been a while…it was in New Mexico in November, mid-November,” Cavill says.
Cavill remains quiet on details of Superman’s battle with Batman, but did tease one particular moment.
“Unfortunately, I really can’t say anything about that,” Cavill deflected. “I wish that I could. Believe me, I wish that I could…There is
a firm handshake at some stage, yes.”

BREAKING: HAWKGIRL CAST IN ARROW/THE FLASH SPINOFF03/30/15 @ 6:36 pm EST
The rating for the upcoming Deadpool movie has been a point of some contention. Many fans feel that a Deadpool movie can’t be done properly without the gory freedom of an R rating, but to give it such a rating may hurt the film’s chances of box office success by preventing Wade’s teenaged fans from getting in on the fun.
Star Ryan Reynolds posted to Twitter today, responding to a question about the rating. Seems he’s fighting hard, even yelling, to try to get Deadpool an R rating.
Ryan Reynolds: “@DPklok051: Is it going to be rated R or PG-13?" I want #Deadpool to be R. Always have. Fighting the good fight still. Lotta yelling today.
Deadpool is currently filming and will open in theaters February 12, 2016.

DRIVER DIES AFTER CAR CRASHES INTO MILE HIGH COMICS03/30/15 @ 9:55 am EST
Hawkgirl will be one of the three mystery superheroes appearing in the forthcoming CW series that spins out of The Flash
, Deadline reports.
Ciara Renée, who just made her TV debut last year on Law & Order: SVU
, has landed the role of Kendra Saunders, which the report characterizes as a lead.
This calls into question the notion that the remaining leads would be characters never seen before on TV; Hawkgirl has appeared extensively in animation and even in live-action during Smallville
. That said, the initial rumor only said that there would be three never-before-seen heroes, not that those heroes would be the same as the three leads who were out for casting. The logic just seemed to make sense.
The cast so far includes Brandon Routh as The Atom, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Heat Wave, Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein and Caity Lotz in an as-yet-undisclosed role expected to be Sara Lance, her character from Arrow
who died at the start of this season.

THE ROCK "HULKS OUT" AS OBAMA ON SNL 03/30/15 @ 7:11 am EST
Adam West and Burt Ward are suiting up as Batman and Robin one more time (well, kinda), according to a report over on Consequence of Sound.
The former dynamic duo revealed during the Mad Monster Party horror convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, that they will be involved in a new animated Batman feature film created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic "Batman '66" TV show.
Ward told the audience that they can "look forward to a new animated Batman full-length 90-minute feature coming out on the 50th anniversary -- one of possibly two, but for sure one that Adam and I are going to be doing the voices for."
The news comes after a resurgence in interest in the classic series, which has included the release of "Batman '66" on Blu-ray, a new digital-first comic series from DC Comics, and the introduction of aline of action figures. No further details have been revealed. (Source: CBR)

KIDS TAKE 'SUPERHERO CHALLENGE' TO FIGHT CHILD ABUSE03/30/15 @ 7:00 am EST
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson hosted "Saturday Night Live" over the weekend, and both he and Sasheer Zamata's Obamas literally Huked out!
An excellent series of sketches involving Luther, President Obama's "anger translator," may be better at expressing what Obama seems to be suppressing, but in terms of a pure sight gag, The Rock Obama rules.
The return of this character provides a flipbook's worth of great reaction shots from Jay Pharoah's Barack before his Hulk-like transition. After he gets fed up with Ted Cruz, John Boehner, and Tom Cotton, thus satisfying the topical demands of a cold open, Pharoah morphs into Johnson, and people start flying through windows.
The twist of this iteration is that when Zamata's Michelle Obama gets mad, she undergoes a similar transformation into She Rock Obama, played by Leslie Jones ... in the exact way you would want it to be!

ECCC: KEVIN EASTMAN IS NOW EXCLUSIVE TO IDW03/30/15 @ 6:30 am EST
On Sunday at the Emerald City Comicon, "Darth Vader" writer Kieron Gillen, "Princess Leia" artist Terry Dodson, "Silk" artist Stacey Lee, "Spider-Gwen" artist Robbi Rodriguez, Marvel VP of International Business Development C.B. Cebulski and Marvel Executive Editor Mike Marts were all on hand for Marvel's final panel of the convention, "Marvel: Next Big Thing."
And we have Star Wars news!
In lieu of a presentation, the panelists opened things up to audience Q&A from the start. Chance for a "Star Wars"/"Guardians of the Galaxy" crossover? "The Marvel Universe and the Star Wars Universe have existed independently for so long and so successfully, the plan for now is to keep them separate," Marts replied. "Prince Leia" #5 cover by Terry Dodson.
Is it limiting at all to tell "Star Wars" stories between Episode IV and V? "No," Gillen said. "I always write with an end in mind. Even 'Uncanny X-Men.' I know these larger structures -- what's the most interesting thing to happen between A and B? It's less of a limitation and more of an opportunity."
Dodson agreed. "We know it's a fairly narrow scope, we're not trying to fill the whole gap in," he said of "Princess Leia," adding that the title character has a lot of potential to explore further.
"You never know exactly how much time has passed," Cebulski said of the gap between "A New Hope" and "Empire Strikes Back," as opposed to the period between "Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."
Cebulski told the panel that as a kid, "Star Wars" first arc series artist John Cassaday drew a comic with what he guessed might happen after "Star Wars," pre-"Empire Strikes Back."
A fan asked why the "Star Wars" comics are under the Marvel banner, not a separate imprint. Cebulski pointed out that the first "Star Wars" comics were published by Marvel, so it was a "natural fit" to do it again. "It really was just a marketing decision that worked well for both [Marvel and Lucasfilm]."
Cebulski said that next month's Star Wars Celebration event will include announcements of new Marvel Star Wars comics. (Source: CBR)
