Crack your knuckles and let’s get down to all this casting biz.

  • in DC: Melissa Benoist is your Supergirl! Gotham’s showrunners are promising a Red Hood appearance during the show’s last ten episodes. Karl Urban is rumored for a villain role in Aquaman. Someone bring me my fainting couch.
  • in Marvel: Chiwetel Ejifor might be up for a role in Doctor Strange. Should he hold out for his own franchise? The X-Verse lands Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, and Tye Sheridan for significant roles in X-Men: Apocalypse.

Alexandra Shipp, adorably excited

  • in toys: there’s an awesome new Wonder Woman action figure, based on the DC Nation shorts. Furthermore, the DC Collectibles vault is opening to reveal rainbow Batmen, Ame-Comi Mary Marvel, and more.
  • in Excelsior: Marvel’s True Believers line will bring popular, notable storylines like Civil War to new readers. Somewhat relatedly, the company talks about its upcoming Secret Wars event. “Event” is a word, certainly.
  • in welcome back: Dwayne McDuffie‘s Milestone Media returns!
