Arnold Schwarzenegger and Christopher Nolan celebrate birthdays on The year of Batman's 75th Anniversary

July is about to end, but yesterday on the 30th of the month, two of Hollywood's most iconic talents celebrated their respective birthdays. Both can officially say that they were part of the long running Batman franchise, and while one's trip wasn't as memorable as the other, it still stands along the 75 years of adventure and legacy associated with the Dark Knight's legacy.

Pumping Iron. Action Star. Governator. Whatever you call him or know about him, legendary Hollywood actor and former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger just turned 67 this year. Batfans will remember him for his portrayal of the cool and cruel "Mister Freeze" in Joel Schumacher's disappointing and forgettable 1997 movie that was "Batman and Robin", but there's no denying that the Austrian-born actor has done a lot through his career!

And of course, the man behind The Dark Knight Trilogy himself, Christopher Nolan, turns 44. The British-American film director is also known for his works "Memento" and "Inception", and has a new film coming up this year that you probably have heard about. It's called Interstellar.

So there you have it for July! The celebrations and many happy returns greetings go to these two Hollywood icons, and more stuff will surely come for Batman's 75th Anniversary this year!

Arrow: WildCat confirmed for Season 3 and will be played by J.R. Ramirez

Looks like we're getting a lot more heroes from the DC Universe for the third season of The CW's highly successful superhero TV Series "Arrow", and after the SDCC panel of the show confirmed that the tease star Stephen Amell posted weeks ago was that of a reference to the character "Wildcat", Deadline and Superherohype have now reported that the part has been cast and given to "House of Payne" star J.R. Ramirez!

What's interesting though is not just that the Justice Society of America alum and hero will be appearing on the show, but that the news and bits about Ted Grant and his alter ego. Wildcat will have a "pivotal role with Laurel Lance" this season, and if one follows the series and the history of the character in comics, then we'll be possibly see the birth of a certain female crimefighter and love interest Green Arrow fans know and love so well - Black Canary. It's true that Sarah Lance, Laurel's sister, has played "The Canary" and looks the part... But that may well be the show's way of updating up Laurel and turning her into the character we know from the books, especially since her full name is Laurel "Dinah" Lance!

Arrow Season 3 begins airing on October 8 on the CW!

As San Diego Comic-Con opens up a lot of excitement and news flooding the internet, The CW's Arrow Panel Presentation went and debuted the very "First Look" trailer of Season 3, which features not only the return of Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, but his supporting cast as well as new additions, including former Superman actor Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer... aka The Atom, and intense looks at Oliver and Felicity's growing relationship and Colton Haynes stepping up his Roy Harper role by donning the Arsenal identity!

SDCC '14: Maisie Williams might play Ellie in "The Last of Us" film adaptation

Fans of HBO's epic medieval fantasy show "Game of Thrones" and Naughty Dog's Survival Horror game "The Last of Us" are going to raise arms for this casting rumor to come true, and it hails straight from Comic-Con weekend news to boot

According to a report by Cinema Blend, Evil Dead and Spider-Man films director Sam Raimi was at SDCC to give an update on the film adaptation to TLOU, in which he confirmed that he and writer Neil Druckmann were having conversations with English actress Maisie Williams to play a part in the film. While the role hasn't been confirmed, her age and look is perfect for the character Ellie, who is one of the main characters of the game is herself as rebellious as Maisie's GOT character, Arya Stark.

The resemblance is also not far-fetched either, as Ellie plays a crucial role in The Last of Us, traveling cross-country with her older companion and guardian Joel in a post-apocalyptic setting. Throughout Season 3 and 4, Arya Stark has been doing her share of travels as well with The Hound Sandor Clegane, so hearing this bit of news is pretty amusing as it is coincidental.

That wouldn't fall far from the tree either, as Williams' castmates Kit Harrington and Sean Bean, who play her character Arya's half-brother Jon Snow and father Ned Stark respectively, both starred in a survival horror game film adaptation themselves with the 2012 film Silent Hill Revelation.

No release date has been given for The Last of Us film yet, but a remastered edition coming out for the PS4 is due on July 29!

UPDATE: Sony released this teaser poster, as seen in Kotaku.

SDCC '14: Zack Snyder reveals new image of Ben Affleck as Batman for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice"

Just like the title of the post says, director Zack Snyder took to Twitter and unveiled the latest picture of Hollywood actor and director Ben Affleck as the new man to don the cape and cowl and play Batman, in the upcoming superhero film crossover that sees him come face to face with Henry Cavill's Superman in 2016 in the DC Cinematic Universe movie - Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
In Snyder's tweet, the "Man of Steel" director simply placed the hashtag "#75" with the image, as a direct nod to Batman's 75th Anniversary this year. The cape and cowl of Affleck's Batsuit also appears in this year's Comic-Con (as featured in this post) as one of the many highlights in the DC Comics booth, and is also spotlighted in this feature in USA Today's official website on The Dark Knight's 75 years, as well as an interview with DC Entertainment co-publishers Jim Lee and Dan DiDio, who give their insights on Affleck's cowl and the legacy of the Caped Crusader in film and beyond.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice sees release on May 6, 2016

SDCC '14: Benedict Cumberpatch addresses "Doctor Strange" rumors w/ MTV News

A lot of rumors and speculation is building as San Diego Comic-Con runs its course this week, and there's no exception for upcoming films falling under the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which includes a certain fan-favorite Sorcerer Supreme by the name of Doctor Stephen Strange. While it is indeed and already confirmed that horror film director Scott Derrickson would helm the film for a 2016 release, there's been no mention yet of who will star in the coveted titular role, until such time Marvel finally announces it either during their panel presentation this SDCC or sometime in the future.

Now, one of the strongest rumors to flow out of the woodwork was English actor and fan-favorite Sherlock star Benedict Cumberpatch being possibly tapped to play that role of the former neurosurgeon turned Earth's mystic and magical defender. In an exclusive interview with MTV News, Cumberpatch finally addressed those rumors, which you can see in the video below.

Voicing out that he is attached to do a play of "Hamlet" in London and that he could not comment whether he was in discussions with Marvel about the project, it's truly up to interpretation and sounds like a tease from the man who played Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness and voices Smaug: The Dragon in The Hobbit films. Only time will tell who really gets to play the Sorcerer Supreme in the Big Screen for sure. For more information, visit the source post at

 Doctor Strange, falling under Marvel Studios "Phase Three" banner of films, is scheduled for a July 8, 2016 release

And so far, here are the posters that have been revealed and shown, as seen in Superherohype!

The 2014 San Diego Comic-Con is on full swing with Preview Night... And TONS of news has already been released on the interwebz, especially those concerning a certain Caped Crusader after Batman Day happened officially worldwide on Wednesday, July 23, as a commemorative moment that happens during the year of the character's 75th Anniversary.

Now, more treats and beyond appear to promote the Dark Knight and his expanded world beyond the pages of comics, courtesy of SDCC '14 news from just about everywhere.

As seen in the official Batman Facebook page and promoting the show's upcoming release, DC Entertainment and FOX have released this collage of the character posters of the people appearing in the Batman prequel show, Gotham.

Also, Enewsi reports that the viral site "Gotham Chronicle" is out to promote one of the greatest tragedies that made the city desolate for years to come.

And for the toy collecting side of things, more DC Collectibles and toys were featured that include Total Heroes and Batman: Arkham Knight via Toynewsi. However as seen in Kotaku, Square-Enix's Play Arts KAI series is taking Tetsuya Nomura approach in adapting The Batman, as the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts guy designs the Dark Knight in a literal sense that echoes the look of Bahamut from the FF games.

Besides The Batman, there's a whole lot more and loads of news to come in the next few days ahead for SDCC. Count on that.

SDCC '14: Peter Jackson releases The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Comic-Con poster

Batman: Arkham Knight: Red Hood revealed as Gamestop Exclusive

Batman Day is pretty much here, and fans eager to celebrate 75 years and all things about the Caped Crusader are treated to some boombastic news for one of the most anticipated games featuring the Dark Knight and made by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, DC Entertainment, and Rocksteady Studios - that being Batman: Arkham Knight!

Via a report, a reader by the name of "El Murcielago" sent in what appears to be a new banner ad that not only promotes the game's release and the Harley Quinn story pack... but a newly added Gamestop exclusice story pack that spotlights the Red Hood, aka Jason Todd the second Robin. True to Rocksteady's take on the Batman universe with the Arkham games, Jason gets a redesign for his costume, and this time the "Red Hood" is not a helmet but a literal jacket hood, and his portrait is sort of a homage to Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed games with the way he poses.

Also, could the Red Hood's presence in the game signify that he is the mysterious Arkham Knight? We'll find out more down the line I suppose, and maybe via this week's SDCC. For more information, visit the source post at Batman-news.

Batman: Arkham Knight is slated for release for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2015!

75 Years of Batman: Building the Bat in DC Universe Online

What's pretty neat about the video is that not only does it recap the importance of Batman, but his design inspirations and look used in the game, which is drawn straight from Jim Lee's highly successful designs and pencil work in the 2002 "Batman: Hush" storyline. A classic take on the character is emphasized, not to mention it being recognizable and a standard for many that remains iconic to this day.

Gotham: Dr. Hugo Strange to appear in the series

A certain doctor from the Batman universe will be appearing in Fox's upcoming new show based on the city The Dark Knight protects... And it's a menacing and manipulative figure that's well known to fans who have read and played the games the Caped Crusader is based on.

On this Batman Day week, Gotham TV Series showrunner Bruno Heller said in an interview with IGN that big baddie Psychiatrist Dr. Hugo Strange would be appearing in the show. According to Heller, Strange is an integral part in the first season, as it not only deals with the beginnings of Detective Jim Gordon, a young Bruce Wayne, and the future villains of the city, but also the foundation of Arkham - the institution and asylum that Batman will send his rogues gallery to.

Arkham City: Crime Alley

Eventually, Hugo Strange's future relationship with Batman shapes their rivalry, as the master manipulator also deduces Bruce Wayne's secret identity. The character prominently appears as well in the video game Batman: Arkham City, as one of the major foes that The Dark Knight faces in the game.

Arrow and The Flash will have a two-hour crossover event; Wentworth Miller cast as Captain Cold

Come this fall on The CW, Oliver Queen/ Stephen Amell and Barry Allen/ Grant Gustin will be busy with their respective adventures as Arrow starts its third season and The Flash debuts its very first run.

But both heroes will also apparently have time to chat and interact once more, as news has it that come the eighth episodes of both shows, Arrow and The Flash will have a "two-hour crossover event" that literally sees the makings of a "Brave and the Bold" team-up that DC Comics fans and viewers will definitely enjoy, if the previously released "Don't Blink" teaser for The Flash wasn't enough to give a taste of that potential prospect that's now going to be a reality. For more on the story, visit the source post at Comic

The Flash First Look: Don't Blink

In related Flash news and also according to producer Andrew Kreisberg, Arrow supporting character Felicity Smoak (played by Emily Bett Rickards) will be appearing in Episode 4 of the spinoff series, supposedly to visit Barry, which will certainly be interesting now that the latter's out of his coma and this will be the first time both characters see each other after Season 2.

Finally, Prison Break and Resident Evil Retribution star Wentworth Miller has been cast as one of The Flash's most well known adversaries - Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold.

The character is slated to appear in the same episode Felicity will be in, and may perhaps return in future episodes down the line. For more information, visit the source post at Comic

SDCC 2014: Marvel Studios and ABC release Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter joint poster

With a week to go before San Diego Comic Con hits and sizzles in the comics, movies, games, and all kinds of popculture news, Marvel Studios and ABC have gone ahead and released a fantastic looking joint poster designed by Matt Ferguson of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Agent Carter - two shows set in different timeframes but both the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Via TV Guide and Comic, the poster promotes both shows, with the former set to return for Season 2 on September 23. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D will pick up where things left off after the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the final leg of the first season, with Agent Phil Coulson and the surviving members of his team tasked to rebuild the organization in the wake of its collapse and compromise by the terrorist organization Hydra.

On the flip side, Agent Carter will see the return of Captain America's WWII flame Peggy Carter, as viewers travel back to the past and see her in action with the SSR after the war while she works with Howard Stark on secret missions. The show will debut as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Season 2 takes its mid-season break.

After Guardians of the Galaxy premieres in August and before Avengers: Age of Ultron hits on May 2015, be sure to see more of the MCU with these two shows between 2014 and 2015!
