David Ramsey revealed to IGN that the STAR Labs crew from “The Flash” is working on an upgrade for Diggle’s helmet, though he has yet to see it himself.

“Central City will be working on an upgrade to Diggle’s helmet,” Ramsey revealed. “That is yet to come, and we will be seeing some of that come out of Central City. As the first iteration came out of Central City, we will see an upgrade also come out. But in terms of Central City’s help with technology to help us combat the magic, that has yet to be seen.”

“I have not seen it yet! I have not seen it,” he added. “Listen, there’s two things I’m anxious about: my helmet, and who’s in the grave. The rest of which I’m cool with.”

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

ComicBook.com has spotted that former Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green revealed his “Batman v Superman” connection via Just Not Sports.

“Yeah, I’m in there,” said Green when asked about his role in the film, around minute 27. “I think I’m more than an extra. I got a lot of camera time. My character name is ‘Thug #2.'” He goes on to tell how he got the role, which involves a friendship with Green Bay native Zack Snyder and a set visit to “Man of Steel.”

The latest issue of Empire features a number of “BvS” reveals, including the news that the genesis of Superman and Lex Luthor’s rivalry will be seen in the film.

“Clark knows who this Lex Luthor chap is, but he certainly wouldn’t assume that he had any bad intentions,” Henry Cavill (Superman) explained. As it turns out, however, Lex Luthor will be working with Batman in order to take Superman down.

Jeremy Irons also spoke to Empire, revealing that Alfred and Bruce Wayne no longer live in Wayne Manor. The latest big-screen versions of Bruce Wayne and Alfred Pennyworth are reportedly living in a “sleek lakeside residence,” as opposed to Wayne Manor, which has been Batman’s headquarters for every film, except “The Dark Knight.”

DAREDEVIL

While speaking with CBR, Jon Bernthal revealed how he got into the mindset of the Punisher for the character’s role in “Daredevil’s” second season.

“But I’ve got to tell you, I think that being a father and a husband was sort of all the — that’s the major preparation,” said Bernthal. “I think this guy lives in a world of darkness that no other person in this universe can compare with that. My goal here was to put myself in that darkness and bring it up and again, to never pull punches. To never do half measures. To never be apologetic. To never pursue likability at all. To be completely unapologetic at all times because this is a highly personal mission that this man is on, and I think that this show, I’m not just whistling dixie, I think that this show and what they accomplished with last season is a perfect fertile ground to bring a character like that to light. It’s not a superhero show. It’s a human show.”

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW

There’s a recap of last night’s episode, “Pilot, Part 2,” over here on CBR. There’s also a promo for next week’s episode, “Blood Ties.”

And there’s also a synopsis for “Fail-Safe,” the fifth episode of the show.

“Fail-Safe”: After some of the Legends are captured and thrown into a Russian gulag during the height of the Cold War of 1986, Snart (Wentworth Miller) leads the team in an elaborate escape plan to free their comrades. However, Rip (Arthur Darvill) gives Sara (Caity Lotz) a secret side mission that could prove not only to be a liability, but fatal to the team.

Marc Guggenheim spoke to TV Line about the big development in “Pilot, Part 2” — and spoiler alert for last night’s episode. Ready? Last night, Hawkman died at the hands of Vandal Savage, which led Guggenheim to explain how Hawkman and Hawkgirl’s reincarnation works.

“It gets a little complicated because he died ‘out of time’ essentially. He didn’t die in 2016,” said Guggenheim. “But the way that the reincarnation works is once they both die, that’s when the clock gets reset for them, and that’s when two babies are born.”

Guggenheim also told Entertainment Weekly that episode six of the show will feature the Oliver Queen of 2046.

“We’re not only introducing our version of Connor Hawke to our universe, we’re going to meet the 2046 version of Oliver Queen, and Stephen Amell is going to be reprising his role from ‘Arrow,'” said Guggenheim. “As an added bonus to comic-book fans, Oliver is missing his left arm and will be sporting a goatee, in a nod to the character’s appearance in the seminal ‘Dark Knight Returns.’ We think this episode features some of the coolest things we’ve ever done.”

SUPERGIRL

The photos from the upcoming “Supergirl” episode, “For the Girl Who Has Everything,” have been released.

THOR: RAGNAROK


In an interview with Collider, “Thor” director Taika Waititi talked about what he sees as Marvel’s strenth.

“I’ve learned that there are really no rules,” said Waititi of working with Marvel. “There’s no road map. They’re very similar to Pixar in that way. They are constantly looking for the best story, they’ll tear everything down to rebuild it to make sure they have the best story. That’s why Marvel is good they keep pushing and pushing and trying to get the best thing possible. That’s what I’ve discovered the way things have changed.”

“Ragnarok” will include the Hulk, and Mark Ruffalo discussed what he sees happening instead of a standalone Hulk film.

“I’d love to do a Hulk movie, but that’s beyond my control,” he reiterated to Yahoo!. “It’s controlled by Universal. Marvel doesn’t even hold the rights to it. So, it’s not on the horizon. And I don’t know if it will be.”

However, he promised there wull be plenty of the Hulk in upcoming installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, saying, “But we’ve worked a really interesting arc into ‘Thor 3,’ ‘Avengers 3’ and ‘4’ for Banner that I think will — when it’s all added up — will feel like a Hulk movie, a standalone movie.”
