While speaking at a conference at the Libre Institute, presidential hopeful Jeb Bush was asked who his favorite superhero is. While the question specified which Marvel superhero, Bush namechecked two of DC's biggest names.
"I'm kind of old school," Bush told the audience (via the New York Times). "I kind of like the old-school guys, like Batman."
Bush didn't stop there. He also threw his support behind DC's newest TV star, Supergirl.
"Supergirl is on TV - I saw that when I was working out this morning. She looked pretty hot. I don't know what channel it's on, but I'm looking forward to that," said Bush of Supergirl's Melissa Benoist, before chuckling "That will make the news."
Though he named DC heroes when asked about his favorite Marvel heroes, Bush did endorse Marvel as a whole - or at least their business strategy.
"I like watching the movies, and I wish I owned Marvel, as somebody who believes in capitalism."
Supergirl premieres on October 26 on CBS, while Batman will next appear in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which hits theaters March 25, 2016.
MARK HAMILL And J.J. ABRAMS Talk Evil LUKE SKYWALKER - In 2005
One of the prevailing fan theories about Star Wars: The Force Awakens is that Luke Skywalker will turn out to be one of the film's villains. And, as it turns out, it's an idea that's been on Mark Hamill's mind for some time. In fact, it's even an idea he previously shared with The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams ten years ago.
In a 2005 episode of IFC's Dinner For Five, in which five filmmakers are placed at a roundtable discussion, Hamill told the other attendees all about his pitch for Luke Skywalker turning to the Dark Side.
“As an actor that would be more fun to play," told the rest of the roundtable, consisting of Kevin Smith, Stan Lee, Jason Lee, and yes, J. J. Abrams. "I just thought that’s the way it was going from when we finished [The Empire Strikes Back]. I figured that’s what will be the pivotal moment. I’ll have to come back, but it will be I have Han Solo in my crosshairs and I’ll be about to kill him or about to kill the Princess or about to kill somebody that we care about. It’s an old cornball movie, like World War II movies.”

ECHO KELLUM Confirms He'll Have T-SPHERES On ARROW
When Echo Kellum was cast as Curtis Holt on Arrow season 4, it was made clear that his character was based on Michael Holt, the latest hero to take up the mantle of Mr. Terrific. What wasn't clear was whether Kellum's Holt would become a hero in his own right. Now, Kellum has confirmed that Mr. Terrific is in the works, citing his signature T-Spheres.
"Oh man, when they teased them in the trailer, the first thing I thought was, 'Yes! T-Spheres!'" Kellum told ComicBook. "Those T-Spheres are so damn cool, especially everything they do! You can fly with them, they help him with his inventions, and all stuff like that. It's just also exciting just to even see those even teased about. I can not wait for them to show up."
Kellum also confirmed that the T-Spheres have already made their way onto the set of Arrow.
"I’m so nerdy, that when I went back to set I took so many pictures of the T-Spheres, I was like 'Oh my God, I can’t believe this is actually happening.'"
Arrow airs Wednesday nights on CW.
