In this week’s DC Round-Up, Gotham introduces Scarecrow; Supergirl releases supporting cast breakdowns; The Flash offers a sneak peek of Plastique; DC/WB wobble on Wonder Woman’s director; and a big screen Batman strives to save real bats.


 

Zap2it reports that Gotham plans to introduce Scarecrow…

However, there’s another familiar and horrifying face heading to “Gotham.” During a panel for the show at Stan Lee’s Comikaze, executive producer Danny Cannon revealed writers are currently working on an episode that introduces Scarecrow.

“We’re breaking the story now,” Cannon says. On “Gotham,” the villain will be seen as a child, before he takes on the Scarecrow moniker. In fact, it’s something that will be passed on to him from his father, which will create an eventual enemy for Batman while still having a possible adversary for Jim Gordon.


TV Line has obtained casting breakdowns for the new CBS Supergirl series…

For Kara Zor-El aka Kara Danvers, the show is eyeing Caucasian females, age 22 to 26, to play 24. As the series’ mythology goes, Kara at age 12 was sent from her dying home planet of Krypton to Earth, where she was taken in by the Danvers, a foster family who taught her to be careful with her extraordinary powers. After repressing said skills for more than a decade, Kara is forced to bust out her super moves in public during an unexpected disaster. Energized by her heroism for the first time in her life, she begins embracing her abilities in the name of helping the people of her city, earning herself a super moniker along the way.

The other lead role currently being cast is that of 26-year-old Alexandra “Alex” Danvers, Kara’s gorgeous, brilliant, science-minded foster sister. Growing up, Alex was partly jealous of her sibling yet also fascinated by her abilities, prompting Alex to learn as much as she could about alien anthropology, sociology and culture. Today, Alex works for a secret government organization and, alongside her heroic sis, will face many challenges, both mundane and super.

and more from TV Line

CAT GRANT | The project is eyeing females in their 40s, open ethnicity, to play the founder of CatCo, a media conglomerate that Cat built from the ground up. Kara (Supergirl’s mild-mannered alter ego) will work as a personal assistant to Cat, who is described as “J.Lo by way of Anna Wintour.”

JAMES OLSEN | In his late 20s/early 30s, open ethnicity, James is a smart, worldly and (duh) attractive photographer for CatCo. Though an alpha male, his salt-of-the-earth nature elicits a huge ol’ crush from Kara…


TV Guide offers a first look at The Flash’s Plastique. The Nov. 11 episode of The CW superhero series introduces the DC Comics villainess Plastique, aka Bette Sans Souci (played by Kelly Frye). Like Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), Bette, a former bomb disposal expert in Iraq, gained a super power as a result of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator disaster. In her case it’s the ability to turn any object she touches into an explosive device.


 

Unfortunately, according to Bleeding Cool, it looks like DC/WB isn’t looking for a female director for Wonder Woman after all.


According to io9, the director and stars of Batman v. Superman teamed up for some bat philanthropy to provide a bat signal for winged friends threatened by disease and loss of habitat…

To celebrate National Bat Week…Batman v. Superman stars Ben Affleck and Amy Adams, together with director Zack Snyder, find out why bats are so important and how we can help them. “As a movie that benefits from the bats, we thought we’d build these habitats to raise awareness,” says Snyder. The materials they used for their bat-house building blitz were actually recycled from the sets of Batman v. Superman.
