Hearing Matt Reeves contracted to work on APES till at least end of June, so production on BATMAN likely not starting till 2018— Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) March 14, 2017
What does this mean for now? Basically, any casting rumour is probably gonna be worthless:
Also means any casting rumors you hear are likely BS seeing that he wouldn't have time to meet with any talent till at least July— Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) March 14, 2017

Speaking with Collider, director Dean Isrealite promised a post-credits scene, because this is a superhero movie coming out in the year of our lord 2017.
It was always gonna be a coda. It was always gonna be sort of a post-credits scene. The only thing that we debated about that was where it comes two and a half minutes into the…after the main one ends, or is it gonna come right at the end of the credits. So we decided to kind of break the credits up.

A dangerous virus, one that prevents the infected from controlling their inhibitions, is discovered in a corporate law building, the very same firm that recently cleared an infected man on murder charges. When a quarantine is issued and the building goes on lockdown, all hell breaks loose inside, while a disgruntled employee (Steven Yeun) and an irate client (Samara Weaving) must fight and even kill their way to the top to “have a word” with the corrupt executives who wronged them before time runs out.

Cloak & Dagger
Gina Prince-Blythwood spoke to Black Film about directing the Freeform pilot:
I’ve just been a fan of Marvel. When I heard what the story was about, it was right into my wheelhouse and the fact that my boys are big comic book guys and honestly, three years ago I was watching a Marvel show and my youngest ask when will we have a black superhero. The fact that we’re so excited for Black Panther to come out, and the fact that I got to put something out on TV with a young female superhero and a black superhero was just a gift.
I came in to do the pilot so I’m excited for the opportunity to do it. It was such a great script and to be able to help create the look of the show was exciting for me. I love that they are starting to open up and broaden who there are bringing in.
