COMIC REEL: Goyer Says “Batman V Superman” Screening Made Him Giddy; “Kingsman 2” Gets Release Date

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

Latino Review has heard a rumor about “BvS'” budget, saying that the film might come in at $410 million — which would make it the most expensive movie ever made.

Cinema Blend talked to actor Michael Shannon, who reiterated that his General Zod will have a presence in the film as a Kryptonian ghost. “Yeah, I say some stuff. But not a whole lot! I mean, I am dead,” said Shannon with a laugh. “I’m just like a ghost. It’s kind of like Russell Crowe in the first one. Jor-El. For some reason, these Kryptonian spirits, they linger. Even once you crack my neck, you can’t shut me up.”

Collider talked to “BvS” producer David S. Goyer, who revealed his reaction to watching the film for the first time.

“I think just the kind of giddiness in being a kid that grew up going to the comic book store every Saturday and reading comic books in which these two epic characters clashed,” said Goyer. “Just the fact that I got to be involved in something like that is crazy. Much less that I got to be involved in two cinematic iterations of Batman is also crazy.”

The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Amy Adams, who talked about one fun moment she had on the set with Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck.

“I can’t give too much away, but I’m coming into a scene and Batman and Superman are both in the scene, so I can say that,” said Adams. “And it was just fun. Because they had been working together for a couple weeks and just running it, seeing this dynamic. I’ll talk about this when we’re promoting the movie and we can tell more. But there were definitely funny moments involving bat-suits and such.”

Opens March 25, 2016

ARROW

The CW has released a clip from tonight’s “Arrow” episode, “Restoration.”

TV Line caught up with John Barrowman and asked him about Merlyn’s involvement with the life-restoring Lazarus Pit.

“Malcolm has said before that when somebody goes into the Pit, a piece of everybody’s soul who has been in there prior goes into that person,” he explained. “Well, Sara’s going to need a lot more than just a piece of everyone’s soul. It’s going to need to fill her a lot more than it did Thea, so Malcolm is very intrigued by how she might come out. But would he want her to come back when he got rid of her in the first place?”

While speaking to Collider, new addition Echo Kellum talked about his audition process for the role of Mr. Terrific. “They definitely didn’t tell me who it was. It was some code name. I came in an auditioned for David Rapaport, and then they called me back in the next day to audition for the producers, Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle, and whatnot. And in that audition, they filled me in that, ‘BTW, this is Mr. Terrific,’ and I was like, ‘What?!’ It was very cool. So, I left and then they called and said, ‘We think you’re the one,’ and I was like, ‘Holy crap! That’s really awesome!'”

The CW has posted a video advertising Guitar Hero with a showdown between “Arrow’s” David Ramsey and “Flash’s” Candice Patton.

THE FLASH

You can read our recap of “Family of Rogues” right here, and watch the preview for next week’s ep below.

ComicBook.com talked to Jesse L. Martin ahead of last night’s “Flash” episode. Martin talked about how he reacted when he learned about the addition of Joe West’s wife to the cast:

“Well, I was actually elated. There wasn’t a whole lot of talk as to what happened; I didn’t even know her name, so all of a sudden she had a name and there was going to be some sort of return. I didn’t know what the circumstances were going to be, and you guys have found out that she had a drug problem and it put our daughter in jeopardy. That’s pretty much why she ended up leaving — a stint in rehab, also. But she never really explained why she never came back until now, so it was much easier for Joe to pretend that she died than to explain why she was gone and she wasn’t part of Iris’s life.”

TV Line also talked to Grant Gustin during a set visit and asked him about the return of the real Harrison Wells. “Barry is wanting to trust him… and in a way is quicker to trust him than he was to trust Jay [Garrick],” said Gustin. “He’s less of a bad guy and more of a douche bag.”

Cavanagh, the man behind Wells, added: “It wasn’t written that way, but that’s how I decided to do it – more brusque and arrogant…. [He] is a lot less about ‘togetherness.'”

SANDMAN

Producer David S. Goyer has revealed a little bit about the “Sandman” film to Collider, saying: “We’re just about to do a new draft. All of the Vertigo properties ported over to New Line a few months ago. There was a decision from the higher-ups that New Line would focus on the Vertigo properties and Warner Bros would focus on the DC properties. So we’re just starting a re-write with a really fantastic writer that fans of your site will enjoy that’s coming aboard, but I can’t quite announce it yet.”
