Henry Cavill discusses how future DC movies will move on from Superman’s resurrection. Wentworth Miller teases one last return to The Flash. There could be even more flashbacks in Ant-Man & The Wasp than we thought. Plus, glorious new Deadpool 2 art, and more on The X-Files‘ return. Spoilers now!


CEO Bob Iger believes there’s a market for a specially-branded range of R-rated MCU films he refers to as “Marvel-R” in the wake of Disney’s takeover of 21st Century Fox’s TV and movie studios.

It (Deadpool) clearly has been and will be Marvel branded. But we think there might be an opportunity for a Marvel-R brand for something like Deadpool, as long as we let the audiences know what’s coming, we think we can manage that fine.

In a recent interview with, Henry Cavill suggested future DC movies will simply gloss over Clark Kent’s miraculous return from the dead.

It’s a tricky one. The wonderful thing about movies is that it’s a suspension of disbelief. We’re talking about a guy who can fly, who can shoot lasers out of his eyes. And so there are ways of doing it but telling these stories, it’s about your enjoyment. It’s about my enjoyment. It’s about enjoyment for the viewer. And so we can spend four hours of a movie explaining why and how Clark comes back. But is that what you want to see?
