COMIC REEL: New "Batman V Superman" Rumors Target Flash, Aquaman; McKellen Talks "X-Men: Apocalypse"

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

For those out there wondering how Aquaman and the Flash might factor into "Batman V Superman," Heroic Hollywood has obtained info that may be of interest to you. While this info has not been confirmed, it should still be treated like a spoiler.

Apparently there's a scene in "BVS" wherein Batman hacks into LexCorp/Cadmus surveillance footage and sees a blurry version of Ezra Miller's Flash stopping a robbery and Jason Momoa's Aquaman held prisoner in a containment chamber, with his hand slapping up against the glass. The Flash cameo rumor was first reported on by Daily Superhero last June. The batch of intel also includes the rumor that "Suicide Squad" will be set in between "Man of Steel" and "Batman V Superman."

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

There's been a lot of will he, won't he regarding whether or not the Hulk will be showing up in "Captain America: Civil War." Mark Ruffalo said he hasn't heard anything or had any calls, but also noted that Iron Man Robert Downey Jr. told him that he'd be seeing him on set. Now, Ruffalo has addressed those comments, saying:

"I don't know," Ruffalo told HitFix with a laugh. "If Robert Downey Jr. says I'm in 'Captain America,' then I'm in 'Captain America,' dammit. I will wait for the day that my call sheet shows up on my doorstep, or my script. At this point, I'm told that I'm in it -- by Robert -- which I'll take as as Biblical, but I just haven't seen or heard from production yet."

If Ruffalo has a role in the movie, it's likely it won't be in the scenes currently filming in Atlanta. Just Jared has snapped more photos from the film's set, capturing Anthony Mackie during some downtime. Their pics also reveal that at least one scene will take place at the Institute for Infectious Diseases.

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD

The cast of "The Walking Dead" prequel spinoff series "Fear the Walking Dead" continues to grow. Shawn Hatosy has joined the series in a yet-unnamed reoccurring role.

IZOMBIE

TVLine spoke with "IZombie" series creator Rob Thomas, who broke some info on what fans can expect in the show's sophomore outing.

"We have been talking about season 2 as being the Season of Dads," said Thomas. "We might meet several people's dads in season 2, including [Liv and Evan's]. We kept him intentionally unmentioned because we hadn't worked out how we wanted to bring him in or what we wanted to do with him... We have a desire to do it, and I think we have a neat backstory on their dad."

MARVEL

Following "Jurassic World's" record-breaking opening weekend, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige posted a congratulatory message to the film's cast and crew on Twitter.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2

Stephen Amell, who plays the hockey-mask-wearing vigilante Casey Jones in the "TMNT" sequel, took some time while on set to pose with his daughter next to his character's vehicle. Amell posted the pic to his Facebook page, stating that this all black ride should "handily convince you that Casey Jones is going to be a bad ass."

While it may have convinced some fans of the bad assitude of Amell's Casey Jones, one fan took to the comments to express concern about the discrepancies between the classic Casey and the one played by the "Arrow" actor. Amell directly addressed that concern, writing, "Hey guys -- it makes sense. But it'd be tough to know that when you haven't seen a trailer much less read a synopsis. I'd just try and be patient."

THE WALKING DEAD

TVLine has some rumors/speculation about the sixth season of "The Walking Dead," mainly involving the recent casting call for new character's Kirk and his wife Hilda. According to the site, the character of Kirk needs to be available for future seasons but his wife does not. Following the logic, it seems that Hilda might be one of the - probably - numerous causalities in season 6.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

While speaking with Digital Spy, Ian McKellen addressed rumors regarding whether or not he'll be appearing in the upcoming "X-Men: Apocalypse" as Magneto -- rumors, interestingly enough, that his good friend and X-Men rival Patrick Stewart played a role in perpetuating. Sadly, it seems that the elder Master of Magnetism will not be making a cameo.

"I don't think I am. No, no, they are currently making the film and I'm not in it," McKellen told Digital Spy. "I was very happy to be a part of the films but I have other things to be doing. I've just done 'Mr. Holmes,' I just done some filming for a sitcom, a film for BBC TV with Anthony Hopkins, so there are compensations for not getting caught up in blockbusters."

Looking back on the franchise, McKellen also discussed why he thinks the X-Men films stood a cut above the rest of the superhero cinematic crowd.

"I've always thought the X-Men stories were superior, to my taste, to any other fantasy movies because they were about something," McKellen said. "I don't think there's much excitement in the wimp who becomes all powerful when he changes his underwear. But X-Men is about what it is to be different, what it is to be a mutant, and society's attitude towards difference and all that. That's an important social thing to discuss."

Back on the "X-Men: Apocalypse" set, director Bryan Singer has posted a new set video to Instagram. The time lapse footage teases a very shaky scene in the sequel.
