SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR
Jessica Alba spoke with GQ about her return to the role of Nancy for “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” and what’s new with her character this time around.
“There’s more of me and I do more than I did in the first one. I have a bit more of a character arc in this one,” Alba told GQ. “There’s more dancing, but the dancing’s really connected to the story. Nancy’s a bit of an alcoholic and a bit of a mess and she’s depressed and angry. The dances in the movie reflects where she’s at.”
Plus, take a look at this clip that features Nancy’s transformation — Bruce Willis makes a brief return as Detective Hartigan, as well.

Well, Stephen Amell has gone on record saying that he will not be appearing in “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
Note that Amell doesn’t specifically state that he won’t come to the films at some point — it’s just not now.
However, there is one DC movie actor crossing over into television — just in a different role. “Superman Returns” star Brandon Routh has been cast as Ray Palmer/The Atom for season three of “Arrow.” Routh’s character will serve as the new owner of Queen Consolidated as well as a possible love interest for Felicity Smoak.
