Speaking of X-men, Storm actress Halle Berry says her pregnancy won’t stop her from appearing in the anticipated First Class sequel.

“Storm probably won’t be as badass as she was going to be because we won’t be able to do any fighting or flying or things like that,” she said.

Aw, Halle, Storm was never badass. She was just… what’s the word I’m looking for? Right. Awful.

Superman/Justice League

Much like Bigfoot, the Lockness Monster, and Cthulhu, people continue to believe in the mythical Justice League movie that we all know won’t happen, but the Executives over at the WB have to keep promising because Marvel really, truly and seriously is putting Rocket Raccoon in a movie before the Flash and Wonder Woman grace the silver screens, and it’s getting harder and harder every day that is the case to get the WB accounting department to let them put cocaine and prostitutes on their expense accounts.

On other characters entering the cinematic world of Man of Steel?

Roven: “[Man of Steel’s] setting the tone for what the movies are going to be like going forward. In that, Man of Steel is definitely a first step. What Zack and Chris have done with [Man of Steel] is allow you to really introduce other characters into the same world.”

Man of Steel screenwriter David S. Goyer was a little less direct on the same subject but he coyly dropped a hint that there will be some easter eggs.

Goyer: “I would love to tell you yes or no [on Man of Steel leading to a shared universe], but I think it’s going to be more exciting for people to keep a beady eye out and find what they can find.”
