THE WOLVERINE

CBR's own Josh Wigler spoke with "The Wolverine" cast and crew about the impending film, including the importance of Wolverine's relationship with Jean Grey.

"[Jean and Logan's relationship] is such an important part of the ['X-Men'] series, and what happens to Logan's journey after that: the guilt he lives with, the reconciliation he has to do with his past, and the fact that somehow, Jean then comes in to either guide him or challenge him or help him find a way through this part of his past," Famke Janssen told CBR. "I think that's a really beautiful way that they ended up incorporating this into the story. It gives room for the audience and of course Hugh's character to have some reconciliation with that big moment in ['The Last Stand']."

HitFix.com has posted a video interview with Hugh Jackman about whether or not he's ready to end his tenure as the Best There Is At What He Does -- the answer? Not quite yet.

Opens July 26

ARROW

Flicks and the City spoke with "Arrow" season two regular Colton Haynes about his role as Roy Harper and what new DC characters fans can expect to get the "Arrow" treatment.

"There's going to be some new character that are going to be joining -- some very, very well known characters that have been in prior movies," Haynes said. "So I think it's going to be exciting to see who they cast as those people or if they can get some of the people for the actual movies that have played [them]."

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

The View London spoke with "Amazing Spider-Man 2" actress Felicity Jones about her mystery role in the upcoming film -- and she's definitely on the villainous side of the equation.

"It’s all quite shrouded in secrecy, but I’m the Goblin’s girlfriend," Jones told The View London. "I’m in a relationship with him, and his accomplice. I’m on the dark side."

JUSTICE LEAGUE: WAR

The next DC Universe Original Animated Movie will be "Justice League: War," based on the first New 52 arc of "Justice League" by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee. Interestingly, the movie follows the upcoming "Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox," based on the "Flashpoint" event that launched the New 52. "War" could be an opening gambit for a DC Animated Cinematic Universe.

HEROES

Although it's not necessarily about a revival of the show on television, Dynamite Entertainment will publish a "Heroes" comic to serve as season five of the show.

"Right off the bat, Claire is going to be our point of view character. The first issue is centered more on her than anyone else," said series writer Cullen Bunn. "That said, you're going to see most of those core characters early on in the first few issues. Hiro was the character I always liked most in the show for a number of reasons. So you'll be seeing him and Sylar and a bunch of others who will get thrown back into the story early on. Claire, Hiro and Sylar will be big right off the bat, but it won't be long before you see all the core characters."

MAN OF STEEL

A new "How It Should Have Ended" video has hit, this time lampooning "Man of Steel." Check it out below.
