BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

Batman-news.com has posted a new rumor about the design for Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor: apparently, he'll have "a lot of hair." The report states that Luthor's hair will be "a big longer, kind of loose and wavy, and it's dirty blonde." In terms of personality, the rumor goes on to note Luthor's mannerisms are "spastic … like a 20-something guy that pounds energy drinks all day."

It's worth saying that in previous "Superman" movies, Lex Luthor has shown up with hair, so this is hardly unprecedented territory -- and it's still definitely a rumor, so take it with a grain of salt.

Meanwhile, "Game of Thrones" star Jason Momoa appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and dodged questions about his rumored role as Aquaman.

"Those are all rumors," said Momoa. "That would be pretty exciting. We'll just have to wait and see."

DOCTOR STRANGE

According to new reports, "Prometheus" writer Jon Spaihts is in negotiations to write Marvel Studios' "Doctor Strange.". Spaihts' other credits include the in-development reboot of "The Mummy" and unproduced screenplay "Passengers." The writer seemingly confirmed that the talks had occurred on Twitter, saying Doctor Strange was "always my favorite Marvel hero."

MARVEL STUDIOS

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kevin Feige stopped by Disney's CineEurope presentation and showed off the first footage from "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and an interview montage for "Ant-Man" featuring incoming director Peyton Reed.

While THR had no description of the footage, JoBlo.com has some pretty spoiler-ish details about the films, including basic story details and possible character design. It's all rumor at the moment, but it's worth taking a look if you don't mind being spoiled on certain plot details.

THE FLASH

IGN spoke with "The Flash" actor Rick Cosnett about playing Eddie Thawne on the upcoming "Arrow" spinoff, and the actor called the experience "exciting, terrifying and magical."

"It's a beautiful show, it's a wonderful cast -- such good hands with the crew and the director and the producers," said Cosnett. "[Thawne] is very calm, he's very nice, he's very golden. He's a good guy, he's almost flawless. He sweeps in and saves the day much to Barry's dismay, which creates a great tension for Barry because we're friends as well. That's always wonderful to be able to play that between the two of us. There's also some wonderful women in the show that get in the middle of us, so to say."
