BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
Just a few days after Ain't It Cool News broke the story that "Batman V Superman" might be broken into two parts (subtitles: "Enter the Knight" and "Dawn of Justice"), Henry Cavill has debunked the rumor in a Variety interview. The actor said that that rumor was false and that "Batman V Superman" is still scheduled to be released as one film. Cavill remained mum about other "BVS" details; he said that Affleck makes a "great" Batman, that he wasn't hurt doing any fight scenes because he's "the Man of Steel," and dodged a question about "BVS" being more epic than "Avengers: Age of Ultron" by answering, "You'll see."

Entertainment Weekly posted a few more pictures from "Ant-Man" last Friday. The trio of images show Paul Rudd's Scott Lang hard at work in both his civilian and superhero lives.
Corey Stoll opened up to EW about his own super suit, which he dons to play Darren "Yellowjacket" Cross. "Now, I've discovered my own version of that [Ant-Man] technology and I'm using it for militaristic purposes," said Stoll. "I've even started to use the technology myself, which as a sort of psychotic effect on people if they use it too much. I can't get into the details of all the goodies of the Yellowjacket suit but it's several generations advanced from what Ant-Man has. And then I put it on --and then I am Yellowjacket!"

The cast and executive producers of "Arrow" and "Flash" gathered on Sunday to participate in the CW's "The Heroes and Villains of 'Arrow' and 'The Flash'" panel during the annual Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour. One of the topics touched upon during the panel was the possibility of a spinoff starring Brandon Routh's Ray Palmer -- the character soon to be known as the Atom.
"We're in very early talks on a very general idea that we haven't dug any deeper on yet, and aren't allowed to say anything yet," said EP Greg Berlanti.
"Right now we're just trying to get the suit finished," added fellow executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
Berlanti elaborated in an interview with Nerdist, saying, "Ray really brings that and brings that energy and he's so much fun to write. He's a joy to write. Brandon's so terrific and embodies the role so well that when we talk about how to further expand things, he's a natural person to talk about."
While there are no direct quotes from CW president Mark Pedowitz on the matter, ComicBookMovie is reporting that a crossover event between "Arrow" and "The Flash" could become an annual occurrence similar to "Doctor Who's" Christmas specials.
The CW has also released photos from the event

Tom Cavanagh opened up during the "Flash's" panel during a panel at the Television Critics Association's winter TV previews about the show's big midseason finale, confirming that he is the villain known as the Reverse Flash.
"I've tried to deflect and parry as best I could -- yeah, sure. He's the man in the yellow suit," Cavanagh said of his character, Harrison Wells. "I think the short answer to your question is, 'Yes, I am Reverse-Flash.'" But as definitive as that statement was, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg immediately hinted that the villain's true identity may be a bit more complex.
"We're going to see what happened [the night of Barry's mother's murder] from the Reverse Flash's point of view," said Kreisberg, as quoted in Entertainment Weekly. "I didn't say it was from Wells' point of view, I said it was from the Reverse Flash's point of view."
"There is just one Reverse Flash," said Cavanagh, adding another layer of mystery. "When we get into that moment and really start parsing through details of what that moment is, it's going to be very gratifying to the audience. It's got deeper levels. There's so much more to it." There'll be plenty of time to unravel that mystery now that "Flash" has been picked up for a second season.
Robbie Amell's Firestorm costume made its debut during the CW's TCA event. You can see it both in the tweet and image from the panel below. The panel's triptych also includes a shot of Victor Garber, who will be playing the other half of the superhero.
