Said Taghmaoui has seemingly confirmed that his Wonder Woman character has pretty deep links to classic DC Comics history: he seems to be playing André, a member of the Blackhawks.

It seems like the group has been pushed backwards in time a little bit, if Taghmaoui really is playing a member of the team.
Elsewhere, Gal Godot shared this photo of the film’s skyscraper-spanning billboard now on display in Times Square.
Screenwriter Rhett Reese has flatly denied Comicbook.com’s claims that the movie’s post-credits scene will feature characters being cast for the forthcoming X-Force movie.

A set pic from the Canary Islands appears to depict Tatooine. Or, at least a desert planet that could very easily be Tatooine.

Captain Cold returns to fight King Shark and Savitar in “Infantino Street,” next week’s episode of The Flash. Head on over to Coming Soon to see more.
Finally, here‘s a poster for the episode. Sidenote: I have little to no idea how fighting King Shark is meant to play into the ongoing Savitar stuff in this season’s endgame, but I don’t care because it looks like a ton of fun.
