Similar to "Arrow," the "Flash" writers have rushed back to work to prepare for their upcoming second season. Instead of updating fans via Instagram like their "Arrow" counterparts, the "Flash" writers announced it with a tweet.

First day back in the writers room. Lots of fun stuff. Bring it on, Season 2! #TheFlash

Entertainment Weekly reported that Luke Mitchell, who plays electricity-powered Inhuman Lincoln on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," has been upped to a series regular for the upcoming season three.

"We have a lot of ideas for Luke," shared executive producer Jeffrey Bell in a statement. "He was a nice addition this past season, so he's definitely being considered for all that."

A rumor is running around stating that since Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are -- to quote the Yahoo! News headline -- "new best friends," they might be in the running to collaborate on "Captain Marvel." It's been rumored that Jolie is being courted by Marvel to direct the film, and an "insider" speculated to OK! Magazine that since Theron is a fan favorite to play Carol Danvers, if she "were to get the part, Angie would almost certainly sign on to work with her new pal." So far there have been no other rumors putting Theron in talks with Marvel; the only thing we kinda maybe know for certain is that Jolie and Theron are buds.

In an interview with MTV UK, actor Mark Strong discussed the chances of his Sinestro from 2011 appearing in one of Warner Bros. new DC movies.

"Well, I think the Sinestro that I did belonged very much to the world of the one we created," said Strong. "With a reboot I think it has to be a fresh broom, doesn't it? So I'm sure they're going to go for a whole other look and whole other group of actors. I'd be very surprised if they imported my Sinestro from our one. I was really proud of that one and I think we really did it justice to the way he is in the comics."

Umberto Gonzalez's Heroic Hollywood has gotten a rundown of how Batman gets involved in "Suicide Squad" from multiple unnamed sources. Those wishing to remain totally spoiler-free, even when it comes to rumored story beats, should look away now.

You ready, Batfans? Heroic Hollywood states that Batman's involvement kicks off well before the street shots we saw last week. Before riding on top of Joker's ride, he pays Amanda Waller (Viola Davis) a visit -- by sneaking into her office within the maximum security prison. HH calls this is a "typical" and "badass" Batman move, sneaking inside a heavily guarded prison and going straight to Waller for a talk with her not knowing it's coming.

Batman has a problem with the Wall, specifically because of the Suicide Squad. "[I]n fact he warns Waller that he will hold her personally responsible for any innocents the Joker and the rest of the Suicide Squad kill," writes Gonzalez. The report ends with rumblings of a second, Bruce Wayne -- and therefore Ben Affleck -- centric scene that Gonzalez is currently investigating.

ComicBookMovie has also posted new pics from a scene that shot a few weeks ago, which included Harley Quinn and Katana.


Director Bryan Singer has posted a photo of several actor chairs, saying that the production has reached a "big day."
