At this point, movie-wise, I imagine no one wants to talk anything but Age of Ultron, but there’s been a few fun developments worth noting over the past 12 hours or so:
– Umberto Gonzalez, having moved on from Latino-Review, is now running his big movie scoops on his Instagram, which I highly suggest you follow, provided Instagram is your thing. His latest post is a look at the design of the new Batwing from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice:
RT! #EXCLUSIVE! #AskElMayimbe Your first detailed look at the #BATWING from #BatmanvSuperman! That’s the logo from my new outlet watermaked on bottom right. For now we’re just a symbol. “People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy and I can’t do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man, I’m flesh and blood, I can be ignored, I can be destroyed; but as a symbol…as a symbol I can be incorruptible, I can be everlasting.” #Batman #HH #dccu #dccomics #dc #dcmovie
I have to say, I’m a much bigger fan of this design than the one that appeared in The Dark Knight Rises.
– To be honest with you, I need a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie like I need a hole in my head, but I’m certain there are a great number of you that are excited about the sequel to last year’s offering. The one character in the franchise I’m still somewhat interested in is Casey Jones, who was always my favorite as a kid. Here’s a set photo of Arrow star Stephen Amell in his getup for the role:
The film has also cast Laura Linney in an undisclosed role.
– For those excited about this summer’s big return to Michael Crichton’s dinosaur paradise, here’s a new featurette for Jurassic World:
– And just in case you wanted a quick update on Spider-Man casting, here’s Devin Faraci from Badass Digest:
The final two contenders for Spider-Man are Asa Butterfield and Tom Holland, I am hearing. It was down to 2 last week.

Something is surely a brewing very soon! We’ll have it here as our new Peter Parker is announced! Have a great weekend all!
