CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
Frank Grillo talked to Entertainment Weekly about the status of his burned up bad guy Brock Rumlow and his chances of appearing as the character's super villain alter ego Crossbones in the next "Cap" film.
"['Winter Soldier'] was only a taste of what's to come with the next film, and I couldn't be more humbled and excited," Grillo said. "They just kind of called and said, 'What kind of shape are you in? We're going to need a body scan.' They scan your body so that whatever you wear fits you like a glove."
While a body scan isn't an official offer, it does sound like Grillo will make his Crossbones debut in the next film. "He's a badass," Grillo said of Crossbones. "He is just vicious. I like the idea that it's no holds barred. I love the physicality. We all know what Crossbones represents in his world."

After two and a half seasons with a firm "no superpowers" firmly in place, executive producer Marc Guggenheim told CBR that the upcoming "Flash" crossover episode has changed his mind on the metahuman matter.
"What's fun about episode 8 for 'Arrow' is it proved to me, as a writer and a producer, hey, you know what? You can do metahumans on 'Arrow' without feeling like the show is changing its tone too much," said Guggenheim. He said that viewers may see more metahumans on "Arrow" after the event. "It's something that we all sort of collectively realized -- hey, the show can handle that. So that's kind of cool. I might have to amend my earlier comment from the beginning of the year, just because this kind of works."

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
Former Batman Christian Bale admitted in an interview with "Empire" that he was initially jealous of Ben Affleck upon learning that the actor would play the Dark Knight.
"I've got to admit initially, even though I felt that it was the right time to stop, there was always a bit of me going, 'Oh, go on... Let's do another,'" said Bale. "So when I heard there was someone else doing it, there was a moment where I just stopped and stared into nothing for half an hour.
"But I'm 40. The fact that I'm jealous of someone else playing Batman... I think I should have gotten over it by now. I haven't spoken with Ben, but I emailed him offering bits of advice that I learned the hard way. I would imagine he is doing everything he can to avoid anything that I did."
