Ryan Reynolds is done playing superheroes for good after Deadpool. Star Wars: Rogue One may have added a cadre of infamous Bounty Hunters to its cast. Plus, teasers for Fear The Walking Dead and Heroes Reborn, new footage from Ant-Man, and a new prequel for The Strain. To Me, My Spoilers!
Ryan Reynolds says he’s done playing superheroes after Deadpool:
We all want to be Batman alone at home in our specifically-sewn Bat pajammies, but no, I have no desire to play any other superheroes after this. Hopefully we’ll get to do ‘Deadpool’ again. Given the fact that it’s rated R, the fans have to show their support for it, and they have to come out and make it worthwhile for the studio to make another one, but that’s it for me. I’ve punched that superhero card a few times now, and that’s enough.

Star Wars: Rogue One
Off the back of the news that Darth Vader will appear in the film, Bloody Disgusting is reporting that a cavalcade of Bounty Hunters will feature as villains, working for the the main villain, a Grand Moff allegedly played by Ben Mendehlson. The list includes the likes of Boba Fett, Bossk, Dengar, IG-88, 4-LOM and Zuckuss, as well as a live action debut for Clone Wars character Cad Bane.

Executive producer Ali Adler discusses how the show will deal with Superman’s existence, after a very brief, backlit glimpse of him in the pilot:
Our prototype is the way the President is seen on Veep. It’s certainly [inspired by] so much of what Julia-Louis Dreyfus’ character goes through. Ultimately, this is a show about Supergirl, and we really want to see it through her lens.
Once Upon A Time
Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis tease the new season.
Might Regina be tempted by Emma’s dark side?
Kitsis: I think we’re always tempted. It’s always more fun to hang out with someone who is willing to get into trouble than the person that won’t.
Will Emma have the powers of the seer as well and be able to see the future?
Horowitz: She’s going to be exploring exactly what her powers are.
