While Warner Bros. is gearing up to start production on Batman Vs. Superman next year in Michigan, the studio is also working on their long-awaited Justice League movie. A new, unconfirmed report reveals that Warner Bros. is eyeing a "United Nations" approach to casting these superheroes, with each role representing a different region of the world.
Superman (Henry Cavill) represents the Earth as a whole, since he is an "immigrant" of Earth and speaks for everyone. Batman (Ben Affleck) would represent America, with Warner Bros. seeking a Hispanic or Latino actor to play The Flash. While the announcement that Gal Gadot is playing Wonder Woman in Batman Vs. Superman (and presumably in Justice League) took many by surprise, it does fall in line with this alleged plan, since she is of Israeli descent.
Speaking of Batman Vs. Superman, Warner Bros. is now focusing its casting efforts on finding the right actor to play Lex Luthor. In another surprising move, this report reveals that they are seeking African-American actors for the villainous role. Denzel Washington was reportedly their first choice, but talks never materialized. Idris Elba was also on their list, but his involvement in Marvel's Thor franchise would likely make his casting in a DC movie next to impossible. However, it isn't absolutely set in stone that Lex Luthor has to be African-American.
The source also mentioned an actor who has been "re-occurring" on Arrow this season, which is likely David Ramsey. What's interesting about that possibility is it comes after our report from last month, where Arrow executive producer Greg Berlanti shot down rumors that his CW Network series would be tied to the DC cinematic universe, after Stephen Amell dropped a hint that he wants to be a part of Justice League. Could David Ramsey exist in both universes?
Yes! We've been waiting all day for this glorious slice of cinema to drop its official trailer and poster. And now, here it is! The Hungover Games!

After meeting the haughty and flighty Effing and the gruff, alcoholic Justmitch, our trio puts the pieces together and realizes that they are on a train car headed to The Hungover Games. But instead of the twelve districts of The Hunger Games, our guys have to go toe to toe against various Pop Culture Districts, including The Superhero District, The Middle Earth District, the Puppet District, and the Johnny Depp District.

I know what you're thinking: 'Enough with the The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer, already!' Maybe you've gotten sick and tired of all the coverage this two minute teaser has received today. But that's what happens when a director hides tons of Easter eggs, buried deep for fans to find. So far, we've discovered the appearance of the Black Cat, and nods towards The Vulture and Doctor Octopus. Now, a Reddit user by the name of VurigKnijn has grabbed a quick frame from the footage that hints at the inclusion of Venom as part of the Sinister 6. Take a look and then watch the trailer again...Do you think this popular villain will appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 3? Or The Amazing Spider-Man 4? Or is it really just good old 'venom' storage, drained from snakes and other reptiles?
