Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
Following some rough set videos over the weekend, Page Six has released some good quality photos of Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne filming scenes for Zack Snyder's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice". Click here to access the full gallery.

Ant-Man
"Ant-Man" director Peyton Reed confirms that one element of the comics making the transition in the upcoming Marvel film is Scott Lang's progeny: "In the comics, Scott Lang has a daughter, and that’s part of the movie too, in terms of the character dynamics that are going on. That really appealed to me."

In the comics, Lang becomes Ant-Man in order to save the life of his daughter Cassie. Years later, she became the super hero 'Stature' in the "Young Avengers" series. [Source: Screen Rant]

Fast and Furious
You might be surprised to hear that actress Helen Mirren is keen on doing a "Fast and Furious" movie. Turns out 'The Queen' is actually something of a demon behind the wheel, telling HuffPost Entertainment:

"I always love stunt driving. I do as much driving on my movies as I can. If there's driving stuff to be done, I always beg or insist on doing it myself. Little-known fact: Helen Mirren, stunt driver. I'd love to be in a 'Fast and Furious' movie. I keep putting feelers out. I'd love to do 'Fast & Furious.' I love Vin Diesel as well. He doesn't understand, I think he's so cool."

Star Wars: Force for Change
D.C. Barns from Denver, Colorado has been announced as the winner of the "Star Wars: Force for Change" competition which raised an unprecedented $4.26 million for Unicef Innovation Labs and programs from donors in 125 countries around the globe. Disney committed an additional $1 million to support the campaign.
