DC Comics News, Rumor Round-Up: Ra’s Al Ghul Cast In Arrow, Lex Luthor’s Hair, Supergirl TV Show Coming?
With Marvel the big boy on the block when it comes to movies, DC seems to be hobbling behind a bit. The house of Superman and Batman does have the TV market cornered though, with the successful Arrow on CW and this fall's upcoming Gotham, Flash and Constantine. Let's see what's up with a few of those!
After teasing the Demon's Head for several seasons, up to the inclusion of his offspring Nyssa, Arrow has officially cast Matt Nables, an Australian actor best known for his role as Boss Johns in last year's Riddick. This refutes any previous rumors that Oded Fehr was up for the role.
Next, a Jesse Eisenberg fan has tweeted a picture of herself and the future Lex Luthor.

What a wacky wig! Does that mean Eisenberg just doesn't want to go out in public bald, or will they go the "Lex is in silly wigs all the time" route of the classic 1976 movie?
And finally, a Supergirl TV show? According to Bleeding Cool DC has been "actively pitching a Supergirl TV show" with Michael Green attached to write/produce. Green is a veteran of the Supergirl comics, and a producer on Smallville (which in fact featured Supergirl in its later seasons) so he's got some experience with the character.
We don't know which station will pick it up, so we don't know if this might end up in the same continuity of Arrow and Flash. One hopes, of course!
