THE FLASH

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Victor Garber revealed that his partner-in-Firestorm actor Robbie Amell will appear in the season two premiere of "The Flash."

"Robbie and I will be joined on the first episode of the [next] season of 'The Flash,' and then we'll see what happens," said Garber, hinting at a development with the two's dual nature within the show. So far only Garber, who plays, Dr. Martin Stein, is cast on the spinoff "Legends of Tomorrow," but we have seen that someone with Firestorm's powers will play a part in the show. THR added that Amell is "expected to make an appearance" on "Legends" but not as a series regular.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2

"People ask for so many characters to be in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' and they ask for so many actors who they want to be in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' but we actually have less characters in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' than we have in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 1' because everything is just getting too sprawling and too crazy for me in these superhero comic book movies," Gunn explained. "There's just too many characters so you can't concentrate on one and really get to know that character, and I really want to get to know the characters that we know better."

There will be one new character, although another had to be scrapped. "I had another big character in my original draft and it was just getting too busy. I took that character out. And it's a character I like a lot and hope to work with in the future but I just didn't have room for that person, that character."

SUICIDE SQUAD

In an interview with E! Online, Scott Eastwood revealed that he was a little scared of Jared Leto once the actor got into his Joker makeup.

"I was sort of afraid to approach him because I didn't want to mess with his thing going on," Eastwood told E!. "But I knew him before. I met him before he was The Joker. I just met him as Jared Leto. So I didn't know if I wanted to mess up his thing." Eastwood's "Suicide Squad" role is still a mystery, and the interview states that he's playing a "military man."
