Cinecast: Seth Green on Affleck’s Batman, ‘Pushing Daisies’ Musical, ‘SATC 3’?

Bette Midler+ Seth Green - whom you may recall from Robot Chicken, Family Guy, and Austin Powers - gives Larry King a compelling explanation as to why Ben Affleck is a poor choice as Batman in the upcoming Batman Vs. Superman film.

+ Bette Midler is set to appear at this Oscars this year - additionally, she'll be singing for the first time!

+ Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller is in talks with Warner Bros. and Barry Sonnenfeld to adapt the short-lived (and much-loved!) ABC series into a musical for Broadway, which would star Pushing Daisies alum Kristin Chenoweth. Fuller says that he is also contemplating a film adaptation.

+ Michael Patrick King, who wrote for the Sex and the City series and directed both film adaptations, says that there's one more story to tell for Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha - greatly hinting at the possibility of a third film.

+ A second trailer for the upcoming 22 Jump Street - the sequel to 2012's 21 Jump Street - is out, and Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill prove once again that they make for one of the better buddy cop couples. What to expect from the trailer: a face-eating squid, 2 Guns spoofing, Fast and Furious spoofing, lots of bromance, Ron Swanson Nick Offerman, and Tatum's character very hilariously trying to pull of a Latino accent.

+ Norman Reedus has been cast in a post-apocalyptic film (produced by The Walking Dead comic book creator and series producer Robert Kirkman, no less!) titled Air, in which he and Djimon Hounsou basically take care of folks who are cryogenically frozen until they're set to rebuild Earth.
