BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
While speaking with "Empire" magazine (as transcribed by CBM), Amy Adams reveals that Lois Lane will have a "big moment" with Batman in the film, and that the scene involved "wirework and special effects work."

Adams and Henry Cavill also spoke about Lois and Clark's relationship. "She may have some tunnel vision, but she's got a job, moral standards," said Adams of Lane. "[When] we met her before she would do anything to get the story -- now Clark has instilled some faith in humanity in her... Her relationship with Clark is the closest thing she has to anything faith-based, you know? Although moving in with Clark brings issues."

"It's not a normal relationship," said Cavill. "How could it be? One of them is an alien."

A new image from the film featuring Wonder Woman aboard a Turkish Airlines flight has been released.

Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Batman v Superman"

In an upcoming issue of Empire magazine (via ComicBookMovie.com), Snyder justified his reasoning for using Doomsday in the film, calling the classic '90s foe is a suitable threat for Bats and Supes. "To go up against heroes like Batman and Superman, we wanted to introduce one of the DC Universe's most iconic and powerful villains," said Snyder. "He is essentially an unstoppable force. He poses a real threat to the world within the film."

Over a dozen new images from the film have also been included in "Empire."

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
During a recent TCA event, IGN caught up with Elizabeth Henstridge and Ming-Na Wen and talked to them about where the second half of season three finds their characters.

"Simmons is grieving," said Henstridge. "She knows that Will has not made it back and that he's gone and that Fitz tried and all that stuff, so she's in a funky place of trying to get over that. She has some survivor's guilt, and she's just so overwhelmed with how amazing Fitz has been throughout the whole process... We're just going to see what happens there, because obviously they've kissed and obviously she's said I feel the same, but then Will didn't make it. She's got to resolve quite a lot of things. She definitely feels responsible because he died trying to save her, and him dying meant she survived."

Wen said that "there is definitely a transition in May trying to figure out how to not have her emotions, just to keep it in check the way she normally does. Because she's been tapping more and more into her humanity and opening her heart to various situations this past season, I think she wants to continue, but is reluctant to because she feels like perhaps it might be detrimental to her as an agent."

Returns to ABC on March 8

ARROW
During an appearance at New Jersey's Heroes & Villains Fan Fest, John Barrowman spoke about how becoming Ra's al Ghul affected Malcolm Merlyn.

"When he became Ra's al Ghul, he was finally in charge of the League of Assasins, but what he really wanted to be doing was still manipulating who I'll call the Team Oliver people," Barrowman said, as reported by ComicBook.com. "You'll have to watch to see what happens," he teased, "because pretty soon a lot of things are going to change drastically."

Photos from the upcoming "A.W.O.L." episode of "Arrow" have arrived online.

THE FLASH
While talking to Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Andrew Kreisberg explained that the return of the Reverse-Flash following his death will be explained in the episode. When asked directly about it, Kreisberg simply answered, "Yep." The executive producer also discussed the advantages of having an Eobard Thawne from earlier in the timeline than viewers saw in season one: "There are some great surprises and some character interactions between this Thawne and all of our characters. Again, they all have the benefit of having enjoyed last season and he hasn't."

GOTHAM
During a panel appearance at New Jersey's Heroes & Villains Fan Fest, Robin Lord Taylor (the Penguin) revealed who is the "biggest clown" on the set.

"In my experience, it would be Paul freaking Reubens," said Taylor, as reported by ComicBook.com. "He, as we all know, is playing my father. He's an absolute delight. I think he's sky-rocketed to the top of the list in terms of actors who aren't in the core group on the show. He's beloved by everyone on set, and he's also absolutely hilarious. He'll do everything he can do to make you laugh and break in the scene."

A new poster for "Gotham" has been released, subtitled "Wrath of the Villains."

THOR: RAGNAROK
In interview with Crave Online, director Taika Waititi spoke about how he landed the gig as "Ragnarok" director.

"I was asked to pitch on 'Thor.' They watched 'Shadows' obviously, and they watched 'Boy,' and I think the combination of those two films, you get that I wasn’t just like a crazy comedy director or too dramatic. They wanted to weave a little bit away from that... Basically how I pitched it was like, [Thor] just needs to be the most interesting character... [I]f you’re going to call the movie Thor, Thor has to be the best character."
