BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
The cast of "Gilmore Girls" has weighed in on who they think will win, Batman or Superman.

CB.com chatted with DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns, who talked enthusiastically about Aquaman's involvement in "BvS."

"It’s massive," said Johns. "Jason [Momoa] and I were talking about Aquaman and I love that people underestimate the character. I feel like hopefully we’ll be able to share the love that we have as readers of the character because the jokes about him are fun, but he’s got so much depth to him, no pun intended. It’s really great to see him finally on the big screen."

During the premiere event, "BvS" posted a featurette for the film to Snapchat -- and, as the nature of the app, it disappeared forever from Snapchat after a day. Fortunately, the footage and photos have been preserved.

Wonder Woman's full range of powers won't be on display in the film, revealed "BvS" producer Deborah Snyder in an interview with Collider. Instead, some of those powers will wait until director Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman" film to be seen.

"I think that [director] Zack Snyder and [DC Entertainment CCO] Geoff Johns sat down and outlined these stories, many of them at least," said Snyder. "Really, we did a chart with what their powers were, like what Superman’s powers were, and I think you see a little bit of Wonder Woman. So we get a sense of her power but we didn’t want to do too much because obviously Patty’s going to build up to that and we’re going to learn how she discovers her powers in that movie."

DAREDEVIL
Rolling Stone posted a video that goes behind the scenes of the fight scenes from "Daredevil's" first season.

CBR spoke with "Daredevil's" Amy Rutberg about her character Marci's surprising -- spoiler -- connection with "Jessica Jones."

"It's super exciting!" enthused Rutberg about Marci's new job at the law firm featured in "Jessica Jones." "No, I totally work for [Hogarth, Chao and Benowitz]! Yeah! ... It was amazingly exciting when I saw that, and I was like, 'Oh my gosh!' I said to my husband, I'm like -- I don't even get to hold the script. It's on an embedded, encrypted website so I can only read it on my computer. You can't even maximize the font, so I'm like, 'Does that say what I think it says?' 'Jessica Jones' hadn't come out yet, so I didn't know. I knew the name, obviously."
