LEGENDS OF TOMORROW
Caity Lotz spoke to TV Line about her role as the White Canary on "Legends," including her clothing (“I liked that ['70s] outfit a lot; I feel like I as a human should have lived in the ’70s") and fight scenes.

“I’m doing more fighting — and bigger fighting — than I ever did on Arrow, and that part of the job is pretty cool,” said Lotz, adding that she was prepping to film a “huge” melee in which “I’m going to do myself, like, the whole fight.”

The CW has released a new team poster for the show as well.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
While talking to Empire magazine about "Batman v Superman," Jeremy Irons revealed more about Alfred's relationship with Bruce Wayne.

“Alfred has lived longer than Bruce, and so perhaps has a clearer perspective on life," said Irons, as transcribed by CBM. "As well as having been in loco parentis to Bruce, his only remit in life is to protect him. And, as those of us who have raised children, let alone Batmen, will know, that is quite a wide remit.”

Director Zack Snyder also spoke with Empire, revealing that he asked for "Dark Knight" trilogy director Christopher Nolan's blessing before doing "BVS."

He said to Nolan, "You tell me if you don't want me to do it." Nolan responded, after a pause, "Well, we don't own these characters. When you're done making Batman movies, someone else will [make them]." Snyder disclosed to Empire that he thought Nolan "found it a little bit hard," and he'd feel similarly in that position.

Hot Toys has revealed their upcoming 1/6 scale armored Batman figure.

DEADPOOL
Yahoo! Movies caught up with Hugh Jackman and asked him about the Australia Day promo Ryan Reynolds cut for "Deadpool."

“Love it," said Jackman of the promo. "It’s just brilliant. I mean, I love Ryan, he’s a good mate of mine. He’s so fantastic.” When asked if he thought Wolverine could beat Deadpool, Jackman immediately replied: “A hundred percent.”

When asked if he'd star in a potential "Deadpool" sequel, Jackman said, “I’ve never thought about it till now, but doing something with Ryan – he’s awesome – that’s always attractive to me. But I think you’ve probably got several other people lined up to play [Wolverine]… probably you,” said Jackman, pointing to Taron Egerton.

GOTHAM
ComicBook.com spoke with Erin Richards about the future of Barbara Kean while the actress was at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in New Jersey.

"Yeah, she comes back totally different," said Richards of her characters return in season 2. "And that will happen again. You know, you go into a coma, you're going to come out a little different. It's ambiguous as to whether she is actually changed, or whether she's not changed [and pretending]."

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2
Chris Pratt has posted a pic to Instagram about his experience with the "Guardians" table read.

It's 3:20am. I got picked up for work at 6:45am yesterday. I'm not good with math, especially after being up for approximately 61 hours but I think I've been up for over 77 hours. I did a table read for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 this morning and then shot all day on Passengers and just now wrapped some 144 hours later. Weirdly both films, which iI'l be shooting back to back, are being shot in Atlanta at Pinewood studios. We have the best crew. Total rock stars busting their asses. And the stuff we're shooting. My God. I can't wait for you to see it. I go back in in about 8 hours to do more. I am doing what I love. It doesn't feel like work. Even though it is. I'm having fun. I'm overcome with joy and gratitude. I felt like posting this to say to anyone out there chasing your dream... Fifteen years ago I felt the same passion I feel today, but I had very little opportunity. I had to hustle hard and go hungry. I had to eat sardines and figure out how to get gas money. And I never had a plan B. I never stopped believing. Ever. Don't give up. Apply constant pressure for as long as it takes. It will break before you do. Go get it.

IRON FIST
Writer Scott Reynolds has updated his Twitter bio to include "Iron Fist." Reynolds previously wrote for "Jessica Jones," "Dexter" and "The Following."

KINGSMAN 2
Taron Egerton spoke to Collider about "Kingsman 2," specifically the film's villain.

“With 'Kingsman,' we’re shooting in the summer at present," said Egerton. "There’s a script, it’s brilliant. Obviously there’s only so much I can say but what I can say is that we shot [the first] one all in the U.K., that won’t be the case with the next one. It’s a far more international story, we’re going to some incredible places, and we have a villain to rival Samuel L. Jackson -- this new one is so brilliantly written I wish I could play it. It’s amazing.”

THE WALKING DEAD
Norman Reedus spoke with Empire about the upcoming second half of season six, teasing a big fight scene.

“There’s going to be a fight,” Reedus told Empire. “I won’t tell you who, when and where, but I can promise you a fight. All of us are about to clash with that motherfucker. There’s a lot of turmoil in the second half of Season 6.”
