JUSTICE LEAGUE
While talking with Obsev, director Zack Snyder briefly hinted at what may be in store for the team in "Justice League."

"We're working on 'Justice League' right now, right?" said Snyder. "In a weird way, 'Justice League' is the next step for these characters to form a bigger team. Maybe there's a bigger enemy to fight."

Opens November 17, 2017

JUSTICE LEAGUE (ANIMATED)
According to prompts seen by some Netflix users, the 2001 "Justice League" animated series as well as the 2004 "Justice League Unlimited" series will be leaving Netflix within the next month. The prompt cites January 31 as the end date; this information was first mentioned in a December report from What's On Netflix, although that early reported pegged January 1 as the removal date. Considering that "Justice League" is still streaming, it seems likely that the January 31 expiration date is more accurate.

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW
The CW has released a synopsis for "Legends of Tomorrow's" premiere episode.

SERIES PREMIERE — In the year 2166, the immortal villain Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) is on the verge of his final victory – total chaos and the utter destruction of humanity. As the world crumbles, the Time Master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) takes matters into his own hands; he travels 150 years into the past to assemble a carefully selected team of heroes and rogues to stop him. Hunter has chosen what seems like an ill-matched group: billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller), known as Captain Cold, and his partner Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), AKA Heat Wave, a pair of career criminals; and Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renée) and Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel) AKA Hawkgirl and Hawkman. Together this unlikely group will attempt to stop one of the most formidable villains of all time, while they must learn how to not only be a team, but heroes as well. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Phil Klemmer and Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg (#101).

SUICIDE SQUAD
In a recent interview with Cineplex, Margot Robbie expressed her enthusiasm about playing Harley Quinn.

"Harley is creepy, violent, crazy -- all of the things that I aspire to be!" said Robbie. "It’s the fun of living vicariously through someone who is doing things that I would never do in real life."

Robbie also talked about her friendship with co-star Will Smith, who plays Deadshot. "I actually texted him when I heard he was in negotiations to be in 'Suicide Squad' and kept peer-pressuring him," Robbie recalled. "'You’d better be taking this movie!' He obviously signed on for his own reasons, but I was so incredibly happy that we got to do Round Two. He's awesome on set and awesome off set. He’s just a really, really good person."
