McQueen Seeks Nightwing, J.Law Talks X-Men

“The Vampire Diaries” and “Piranha 3D” actor Steven R. McQueen has dropped tweets over the past few days that would indicate he’s been campaigning hard to play the role of Nightwing in The CW’s “Arrow”.

In fact, it was loud enough that he now says he’s “had some superhero conversations with the executives this weekend @ARROWwriters”.

Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence recently spoke with IGN about reprising the role of Mystique in the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past”. Turns out her character is NOT with Fassbender’s Magneto as was last seen in “X-Men: First Class”:

“We find Raven, she’s split off from Eric and Charles and she’s kind of her own agent. She has one mission of trying to assassinate somebody and it will be her first kill basically, and because we’ve seen her in the future and what she becomes and this is kind of a turning point for her.”
