Officially announcing the return of two characters (technically one person w/ two sides) and the unveiling of a new fighter hailing from the Philippines, Tekken series director and producer Katsuhiro Harada and Bandai Namco Games have revealed that Jin Kazama, Devil Jin, and newbie Josie Rizal have been added to the roster for Tekken 7!

The return of Jin is no surprise, given his roles in the past entries. As a secret boss in Tekken 7, one has to wonder how the offspring of Kazuya and Jun will play into this "final entry" of the Mishima Bloodline saga. Here's his reveal trailer.

And then there's Devil Jin... The other side of the coin and the evil side of Jin controlled by the Devil Gene within him. Much like past appearances, he'll unleash his dark half when he cannot control himself... And it's a separate character to boot. Here's his reveal trailer.

And then there's the new girl in the block... The NEW Filipina character introduced to the Tekken universe proper... Josie Rizal! Named after The Philippines' national hero himself Dr. Jose Rizal, this gal wears a costume design patterned after the country's national flag, and is a master of Eskrima and Kickboxing!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice: EW releases first look at Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor

After about a month since the release of Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa's first pic as the King of the Seven Seas Aquaman, a new "First Look" photo of another character from Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has come online... And this time it's the bald chrome dome look of "The Social Network" star Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor!

The pic, coming exclusively from Entertainment Weekly, finally shows Eisenberg's look as Superman's nemesis - a brilliant and evil billionaire and scientist who wants to prove himself superior to the Man of Steel by whatever means. How this interpretation of Lex is depicted in the DC Cinematic Universe is anyone's guess... But so far he looks pretty evil alright!

DC Comics debuts new costumes for Superman and Wonder Woman

Post-Covergence, it looks like the Man of Steel and Amazon Princess are getting new makeovers along with The Dark Knight... And they look all too familiar and somewhat like rehashes of former ideas.

Coming off their two-month hiatus event, DC Comics is planning to give two of their Big Guns, Superman and Wonder Woman, makeovers that will make them virtually different than they're usually depicted as. Comic Book Resources reported the news, coming from stories in The Nerdist, Uproxx, and Hitflix.

Superman will be sporting a look that harkens back to his DC New 52 debut with a T-Shirt and Jeans, but minus the cape and with a new logo that is a throwback to his original appearance. It's a look that will debut in the pages of Action Comics #41. Very Superboy Pre-New 52 in appearance minus the color scheme differences, and yes the haircut makes it obvious as well. The bloody hands? We'll just have to wait and see how that goes.

Wonder Woman on the other hand will be wearing a new armor piece with daggers on her forearms come Wonder Woman #41. It's a new look that makes it appear that the kids gloves are off for Diana, and she's taking her fight against evil to the next level.

Both members of DC's "Power Couple" will also team up together with their new looks in Superman/ Wonder Woman #18, so one has to wonder how this dynamic will work.

And The Man Of Steel will also have words with "Chappie/ Appleseed" Batman come "Batman/ Superman #21", so how will the "World's Finest" interact with each other? And is that still Bruce Wayne in the Batsuit or someone else?

Find out in June when DC Comics brings these new changes.

Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo present... The new Batman?

Pretty much expectations for BIG CHANGES for the Batman universe are going to happen when Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo end their biggest storyline of The Caped Crusader yet in the pages of this month's Batman #40. Something will occur that will change the entire landscape of Batman as we know it...

Newsarama has a detailed interview with Snyder, who initially wanted "Endgame" to be his final Batman story... But any continuation thereafter would see something drastic happen to the status quo that would be fresh and uncharted territory to fans of The Dark Knight. What could it be... And is this a mecha Batman we see with a gun in the cover to June's Batman #41?

We can only wait and see what will happen next.

If you have reservations of Katie Cassidy's Dinah Laurel Lance playing costumed vigilante and being "Black Canary" in Arrow, it's part of the story and Stephen Amell himself has vouched for that as well. Her inexperience may be a turn-off for most and she is very much unlike her sister played by Caity Lotz, but we have to wait and see how where her character arc takes her...
