E02 - it’s all her fault
This is Criminal Law 100, or as I prefer to call it, How to Get Away with Murder.
"I love playing someone who has so much integrity, who has so much joy and so much life—even though her life is now in prison. She’s locked up, but she’s able to build up joy anyway."

Deadline reports that Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara has revealed the current film slate for DC Comics-based properties, which includes 10 films spread through 2020. The DC Cinematic Universe will kick off with “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice” in 2016 as expected, but Tsujihara confirmed the existence of the “Suicide Squad” film, also in 2016. 2017 brings “Wonder Woman” — presumably with Gal Gadot reprising her “Batman V Superman” role — and a stand-alone “Justice League” film. In 2018, the studio plans to expand the DC Cinematic Universe with two individual films — “The Flash” and “Aquaman.” 2019 slates the rumored “Shazam” film and a “Justice League” sequel. 2020, the final year with revealed films, will consist of “Cyborg” and a new “Green Lantern” film. Warner Bros. putting a “The Flash” film on the slate in 2018 is of particular note, considering that Warner Bros. Television has just launched a “The Flash” television series, but the film will feature a different person playing the fastest man alive. Also of note is that there are no other standalone Superman or Batman films other than “Batman V Superman,” though presumably both Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck will reprise their roles in the stand-alone “Justice League” films.

Robert Downey Jr. is on the verge of signing on to Captain America 3, a move that would bring the Civil War storyline from Marvel’s comic books to the big screen and trigger the start of a new phase of movies from Marvel Studios.
The actor is in final negotiations to play billionaire Tony Stark in the third installment, which is slated to begin production in the Spring for a May 6, 2016, release. Downey is already set to suit up as Iron Man for next year’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron and The Avengers 3.
The deal is significant for the Marvel Cinematic Universe considering the plot will pit Stark against Captain America’s alter-ego Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans, as they feud over the Superhero Registration Act, which forces anyone with superhuman abilities to reveal their identities to the U.S. government and agree to act as a police force for the authorities.
Stark supports the program, but Rogers does not, saying it threatens civil liberties, causing sides to be taken and Rogers, among others, to go on the run to avoid arrest. The moral question and battle with his Avengers teammate essentially makes Stark a villain of sorts in Captain America 3, providing Downey with a meaty role he could play out into future Marvel films, including a fourth Avengers.
Marvel on Monday announced plans to reboot the Civil War comicbook miniseries in 2015, which will help introduce the story to new readers leading up to Captain America 3.
