You knew this was coming.

Miles Teller told MTV he’d love to be Mr. Fantastic in Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four.
Michael Rooker has been spotted as Yondu on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy. Head to Superhero Hype for the images.
Affleck'll crush it. He's got the chops, he's got the chin — just needs the material. Affleck & Cavill toe to toe — I'm in.

Joss Whedon endorses Ben Affleck for Batman.
Joss Whedon was asked by Entertainment Weekly if he planned on killing anyone in Avengers: Age of Ultron:
I’m always joking about that. Um…maybe? But I’d have to have a really good reason, a really great sequence for [Marvel execs] to go, ‘We’ll cut off a potential franchise, that’s fine!’ They know as any good studio does, that without some stakes, some real danger, how involved can we get? We don’t just rule it out across the board, but neither is the mission statement ‘Who can we kill?’ We try to build the story organically and go, ‘How hard can we make it on these people?’ You go to the movies to see people you love suffer-that’s why you go to the movies.
