BATMAN V SUPERMAN
With less than three weeks left to go until the “Batman v Superman” Ultimate Cut hits stores, behind-the-scenes photos from the set have surfaced of Ray Fisher’s Cyborg in the film.
The pics offer a better look at Cyborg’s transformation (which we saw very briefly in “Batman v Superman”), in addition to a close-up of Fisher’s half-cybernetic face.
Take a look at the Cyborg pics below:
Additionally, shots of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman were unearthed from the set that show the underwater hero’s costume and trident before the CGI was added — revealing a gold armor that appeared much less shiny in the final version of the film.
The set also provides a look at Wonder Woman, from her 2017 film, sporting a cloak.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn has sounded off on the Captain America Hydra twist, offering a very spoiler-y opinion on the changes to the character that were executed in this week’s “Captain America: Steve Rogers” #2.
Gunn wrote to Facebook:
“Captain America: Steve Rogers” #2 is in stores now.
THE WALKING DEAD
Residents of Cynthiana, Kentucky, are honoring the creator of “The Walking Dead” and the series original and current artists — Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard — by painting a mural for the franchise on the wall of the town’s local theatre.
The following videos goes behind the design of the mural and the folks who painted it:
Portuguese artist Sergie Odeith is heading the project (with funding from the Cynthiana Arts Council) that will see Sheriff Rick Grimes, Carl, Michonne and Daryl Dixon depicted in the mural. Emily Ammerman, a board member on the council, said of the project, “We wanted this first mural to really make a statement…And itâ€™s great to honor the Walking Dead, because it has been such a big hit and people here are proud of the local connections.”
Kirkman is set to revisit Cynthiana for “Walking Dead Day” in August. He and artist Tony Moore developed the project in Cynthiana while they were still residents.

“Arrow” is moving one step closer to the world of Green Lantern. The hit CW series has cast Carly Pope as Coast City reporter Susan Williams who, in the comics, is the sister-in-law of Green Lantern Hal Jordan.
Williams — in the comics, the wife of Hal Jordan’s brother, Jim — will come to Star City “looking to make a name for herself,” by going after Oliver Queen for a “big story.” She’ll make her debut in the third episode of “Arrow’s” fifth season.
Also joining the cast of “Arrow” is Tyler Ritter (“The McCarthys”) in a recurring role. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ritter is playing Detective Malone, a replacement for Captain Lance (Paul Blackthorne) on the Star City Police Department, for the upcoming fifth season. Blackthorne will continue to appear on the series as a regular, despite not operating on the police force.
