In anticipation of tonight's episode of "Arrow," "Tremors," Colton Haynes spoke with CBR about the evolution of Roy Harper, and the characters and teases that might be coming up to reference the greater DCU.

"It's really fun knowing the way the next few episodes are going to go with the amount of comic book characters they're bringing in that have never been seen on the show before," Haynes told CBR. "There's a lot little Easter Eggs coming up in the next few episodes where the super comic book fans will be going, 'Wait... does that mean they're going to bring in that character? Does it mean this thing is going to happen?' There's also a lot of teaming up coming in the next few episodes."

George Clooney did an AMA on Reddit and briefly discussed his time under the cowl for "Batman and Robin."

Well I wasn’t thrilled with the nipples on the batsuit. You know that’s not something you really think about when you’re putting it on. You figure all batsuits have nipples and then you realize yours was really the first. Batman was just constantly cold I guess. But I have plenty of other things that I’m really obviously embarrassed about too. Oftentimes it’ll be stumbling out of a bar drunk or something dumb like that but as you get older a major goal in life is try to do less and less embarrassing things. You know, try not to face plant publicly as often as possible.
