BATMAN/SUPERMAN

While doing press rounds for her new film "American Hustle," Amy Adams spoke with SuperHeroHype how she feels about Wonder Woman's presence in the upcoming "Man of Steel" sequel, specifically about the possibility of a love triangle between Wonder Woman, Lois Lane and Superman.

"Am I interested? I don’t know. I mean, we’ll see," Adams told SuperHeroHype. "I hope that I can be involved with a woman on screen where we’re not in a love triangle. That would be fun. Maybe where we team up together and we work as teammates instead of adversaries."

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Bradley Cooper spoke with Collider about his experience voice Rocket Raccoon for "Guardians of the Galaxy," touching on the voice he cultivated for the character as well as praising Chris Pratt's performance.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

Bryan Singer is reportedly officially on board to direct "X-Men: Apocalypse." Given the "Days of Future Past" director's tweet last week, many simply assumed he would be the one at the helm, but an unconfirmed report from Vulture states unequivocally that "Apocalypse" will be Singer's next film following "Days of Future Past."

Meanwhile, Fox has hired Simon Kinberg to help expand both the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises. While "X-Men: Apocalypse" is likely a big part of Fox's plans, Kinberg is likely also trying to figure out how Jeff Wadlow's "X-Force" fits into the grand scheme of Fox's X-Men universe.

"I have a lot of ideas on how to build those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel," said Kinberg. "I want to be able to build stories over multiple movies."

THE WOLVERINE 2

While many saw the comments from "The Wolverine" director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman as a sign that Jackman might return again to the role of Logan, comments from the actor indicate that the sequel is far from a done deal -- and that he still may not return.

“I don’t know whether or not I will do this next movie,” he said. “I am really proud of [The Wolverine] and I am excited to develop something with Jim Mangold from the beginning because that is a great ride. That’s exciting, to see what we come up with but I have a very high expectation of what it would need to be [for me to star in it] and if it doesn’t reach those, I won’t be doing it.”
