Before Arrow went on a one week, holiday hiatus it left off with a rather lackluster episode that saw Moira (Susanna Thompson) acquitted and bid farewell to Count Vertigo (a character I’m all too happy to see bite the dust).

Ben Affleck (aka Batfleck) said things about Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel Batman vs Superman (or whatever title they’re going with). He doesn’t offer any details on the film, but he said some things nonetheless. Particularly his excitement in working with Snyder.
It seems like lately, every damn super hero property in the known world is being considered for adaptation to either a movie or a television series. Most of these projects revolve around bigger-name characters, but when you have a ton of popularity riding behind a familiar and beloved super hero, you usually have to put in the cash to make it stunning enough to satisfy the masses. Now, DC is looking to diversify a bit by slotting some potential lower-budget flicks revolving around lesser known properties.
First the word ’round the campfire was Dick Grayson (as either Robin or Nightwing) would be making an appearance in Zack Snyder‘s upcoming film: Batman vs. Superman.

Jaimie Alexander is no stranger to portraying a kick-ass lady in a superhero film or talking about the potential of Wonder Woman appearing in a superhero film.

Superhero movies are often treated as top secret, classified projects. No one involved is ever allowed to even hint about their development, yet, over and over again actors and actresses are caught slipping up and revealing possible, crucial information. Are they simply the worst secret keepers ever or is there some ulterior motives at work? Perhaps they’re meant to slip up such teases in order to test the waters? That could be exactly what’s happened at this weekend’s Comikaze where Thor: The Dark World star, Jaime Alexander admitted she’s been in talks with “both companies” – DC/Warner Bros. and Marvel – about future projects.

Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara agrees. He recently said “We need to get Wonder Woman on the big screen or TV.” While that may be the case, nothing seems to be officially in the works. Or is it? While there’s no news on the stand alone front, other than Tsujihara being burdened with glorious purpose, there is a rumor going around that Wonder Woman will make an appearance in Zack Snyder’s Batman Vs. Superman.
