Rakhee Thakrar rumoured to be the new companion

Ex-Eastenders actress Rakhee Thakrar is rumoured to be the front runner for the new companion in Doctor Who.

I don’t watch Eastenders, so I haven’t seen any of her work. But I have spent the day reading up about her, I have to say, I’m very impressed.
Although the rumours about her casting are yet to be confirmed, if she does take on the role, Rakhee will be the first non-white companion since Freema Agyeman in 2008. No, Danny Pink doesn’t count. He didn’t travel in the TARDIS.

Wolverine 3 to be R-rated?

Well, that didn’t take long. After not wanting to make the film, it looks like 20th Century Fox is set to embrace the publics desire for R-rated superheroes. Following the box office success of Deadpool; it seems the studio has confirmed that Hugh Jackman’s last adventure as Logan, in Wolverine 3 will follow the example set by Deadpool. Here’s a leaflet handed out at a Toy Fair, which reveals the rating they’re aiming for. 
  
It’ll be interesting to see if this actually happens, there are many superheroes that could benefit from an R-rating. Wolverine is certainly one of those. 

Supergirl/Flash crossover in development? 

Ever since Supergirl was announced, there have been rumours that she would crossover with The Flash and Arrow. 
But CBS (the network that produces Supergirl) said they weren’t interested in a crossover. Now Bleeding Cool have suggested that CBS might have reconsidered their stance and are moving forward with crossover plans. 

Supergirl was initially ordered for thirteen episodes with an option for nine more to complete a twenty-two episode first series. Bleeding cool say that if CBS orders those extra nine, the crossover could happen in one of those episodes. 

We already know that every DC TV project takes place in the same universe, regardless of Network. The recent appearance of Constantine in Arrow saw a ratings increase of 11% so CBS would be crazy to turn down the opportunity.
