The superhero rumor mill is churning again, this time about a nemesis for DC/Warner Brothers Super-Villain team-up The Suicide Squad. Reports are suggesting that True Blood alum, Joe Manganiello will be donning the iconic sword and mask of infamous DC mercenary and assassin, Deathstroke.

Suicide Squad is already a star-studded production. Featuring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jared Leto as The Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg, Manganiello/Deathstroke would be joining the best of the best of DC's iconic villains. Rumors are suggesting that Deathstroke would begin the movie as the team's antagonist, but knowing Deathstroke's history, a future team-up is not out of the question.

What do you think? Should Joe Manganiello play Deathstroke?

Marvel anti-hero, vigilante, and torture pr0n enthusiast, The Punisher is coming to the Netflix Original Series Daredevil in Season 2, and he's already been cast.

The Walking Dead alumnus, Jon Bernthal who played violent sociopath Shane, will take over as Frank Castle (so we know he'll do it perfectly). No word yet on whether he'll help or hinder the Devil of Hell's Kitchen, but chances are it'll be somewhere in the middle.

Still no word on classic Daredevil characters Elektra or Bullseye, but we're holding out hope.

Actor, Reg E. Cathey from The Wire and House of Cards has been cast as mentor figure Dr. Franklin Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. The internet has been in a tizzy since Fox cast sibling Johnny and Sue Storm interracially (Michael B Jordan and Kate Mara respectively).

Since Dr. Franklin is their father, we can now safely assume that Sue is the adopted child.

The rumor mill can officially shut down production. Chris Pine is NOT playing Hal Jordan's Green Lantern in the DC universe. Instead, the Star Trek actor has signed on to a different DC franchise, Wonder Woman. Pine will be playing Steve Trevor, soldier and love interest to Wonder Woman's secret identity, Diana Prince. 



Hopefully they can stay on good terms. We'd hate to see such a good looking couple fell apart.

History Boys actor, Samuel Anderson has been cast as a companion to join Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman in the eighth season of Doctor Who. He's playing Danny Pink, a teacher who works with Coleman's Clara Oswald, as a teacher at Coal Hill School. On the role, Anderson says

"I was so excited to join Doctor Who, I wanted to jump and click my heels, but I was scared I might not come down before filming started! It's a quintessential part of British culture and I can't believe I'm party of it. It's an honour to be able to work alongside Peter Capaldi and Jenna Coleman and I can't wait to show people how my character becomes involved with such a fantastic duo!"

What do you think? Will Danny be a potential love interest for Clara or just another traveler caught up in the Doctor's adventures?

Though famous for his role as James T. Kirk in the Star Trek reboot franchise, Chris Pine is apparently looking to expand his summer blockbuster resume by joining the DC Movie Universe as Steve Trevor, long-time romantic interest to Wonder Woman. Trevor has been rebooted and re-written several times through the history of the comic, but in his first incarnation, he was an Air Force pilot who crash landed on Paradise Island, exposing Diana and her crew of Amazon warriors.

CBS has found theirSupergirl. Reports incdicate that Glee star Melissa Benoist, will take the role of Kara-Zor-El, Superman's cousin who also escaped the death of Krypton and found her way to Earth.

Born on the planet Krypton, Kara Zor-El escaped amid its destruction years ago. Since arriving on Earth, she's been hiding the powers she shares with her famous cousin. But now at age 24, she decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.
With their sister network, The CW's, success with Arrow and The Flash, it looks like CBS wants a piece of the DC pie. Let's just hope it pans out better than Constantine.
