In this edition of DC Round-Up, there’s confirmation of another Arrow/The Flash crossover, Supergirl casting, iZombie intimacy, a retooled Lucifer pilot, and the first picture of Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
In an interview with KsiteTV, Paul Blackthorne confirmed that his Arrow character would encounter his counterpart from The Flash…
I had some interesting scenes recently – I crossed over on The Flash, so I got to enjoy some time with Joe West and Cisco. They come over to Starling City for a little help on a case, so myself and Detective West, we had a little bonding moment, with the two of them…
According to Deadline, Laura Benanti has been cast in a key recurring role in the CBS pilot Supergirl. She will play Alura Zor-El, the birth mother of Kara (Melissa Benoist). A strong noblewoman, Alura sends Kara to Earth to escape Krypton’s destruction. Her wisdom and guidance echoes across space and time, proving invaluable on Kara’s journey toward becoming Supergirl.
In an interview with Comic Book Resources, iZombie star Rose McIver discussed her character’s social life…
Do the zombies socialize with one another?
Yes, very much so! Initially, Liv doesn’t have other zombie friends or have any relationships with any other zombies, so she doesn’t. She socializes with her family and friends with her big secret being kept and not being able to really connect with them. But very early on, I think an episode after what you guys have been given, she actually meets a gentleman-caller zombie. So they’re able to — I can’t tell you yet. You’re going to have to watch.
According to TVLine, a drama project based on the DC Comics imprint Vertigo’s Lucifer series has received a formal pilot order at Fox — as well as a tweak to its concept. Penned by Californication creator Tom Kapinos, who will exec-produce alongside Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Sleepy Hollow EP Len Wiseman (also the pilot’s director), Lucifer now will follow the Lord of Hell as he abdicates his throne and kingdom to make camp in Los Angeles, where he will help the LAPD punish criminals. Originally, the premise had Lucifer opening a swanky piano bar in Los Angeles.
Batman v. Superman director Zack Snyder tweeted the first promotional image of Jason Momoa as Aquaman.
