The Hollywood Reporter has an interview with executive producer Marc Guggenheim where he discusses the logistics of the Lazarus Pit.

“Now that we’ve got it in our world, and we have a lot of dead characters in our world, we will be addressing how it works and the circumstances and things of that nature,” said Guggenheim. “I know that is something our fans are going to be very interested in. I’m sure after the events of episode 20, there will be a lot of, ‘Get Tommy in the pit. Get Moira in the pit.’ We don’t have any plans to do that, but we have an explanation for why that is the case.”

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

With “Age of Ultron” just over a week from opening, Marvel has revealed a massive bit of information about the Vision — his “birth scene.” The clips were aired as part of Paul Bettany’s recent appearance on BBC One’s “The One Show.” The two clips, one at the top of the video below and another about five minutes in, depict the Vision’s waking moments and first confrontation with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Bettany spoke about his character, calling Vision the “flipside” of Ultron. “They’re sort of two sides of the same coin, really, and there is a link between J.A.R.V.I.S. — who I used to play and still play in this movie — and the Vision, but I’m not allowed to say what it is,” said Bettany. “But the Vision was fun. I loved playing him. You get to see him born on screen, which I will never get to do again — I hope. And he’s supremely powerful and omnipotent and yet totally naive and experiencing the world as it comes and wondering if he’s going to be a force for good or evil.”

Here’s an isolated version of the clip:

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

In an interview with IGN, Scarlett Johansson discussed the role Black Widow will play in “Civil War.”

“I think her past will always haunt her. She’s trying to move forward. She’s trying to pick up the pieces. I think we’ll see that in “Cap 3″ when we find her,” Johansson said to IGN. “She has a greater purpose, and I think that greater purpose is charged by this need to escape her past, so it’s always looming over her shoulder.”

ComicBookMovie has learned that Elizabeth Olsen may reprise her role as Scarlet Witch in the third “Captain America” film. The actress revealed this info at an event at London’s Apple Store

“I guess I’m allowed to talk about that now,” said Olsen during the event, which also featured Joss Whedon. “Civil War” is expected to begin filming in two weeks in Atlanta.

IGN caught up with Oscar Isaac, who will play the titular villain in next year’s mutant movie. The actor opened up about the role Apocalypse’s Horsemen will play in the film.

“Without giving anything away, the recruitment of the Four Horsemen is very cool,” said Isaac. “It’s very interesting the way that he does that. You know the idea of — the way that cult leaders do — they find people that are in need of something and try to fulfill that thing in them — as it relates to every one of the Horseman.”

Channing Tatum addressed the rumors that he will make his debut as Gambit in the film in an interview with MTV. “You know, I don’t know if I’m at liberty to say,” said Tatum. “But I don’t think I want to introduce Gambit until you can really explain who Gambit is.”

MTV also talked to actor Kodi Smit-McPhee, who will be playing Nightcrawler in the film, a character that he feels close to. “His state of mind, his intention in life, is all very close to mine,” said Smit-McPhee. “He’s a very truthful, grounded person, even though he’s a superhero. I can’t wait to express that connection.”

“X-Men: Apocalypse” also has a start date fast approaching, as revealed in a tweet from the film’s hair designer.
