COMIC REEL: Brandon Routh Spotted On “Flash” Set; “Gotham” To “Scratch The Surface” Of Joker Story

THE FLASH

A Canadian promo for tonight’s episode, “Crazy For You,” has surfaced. It contains more footage of Peek-a-Boo and highlights Barry Allen’s struggle with fighting a teleporter.

“Flash” star Grant Gustin also teased Ray Palmer’s upcoming trip from “Arrow” to the Scarlet Speedster’s series. He posted a picture of himself and Brandon Routh on the “Flash” set to Instagram.

The CW has released a trailer for the entire series titled “Impossible.”

AGENT CARTER

ComicBook.com has an interview with “Carter” showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters. In the interview, the executive producers touched upon the audience’s reception of new characters like secret-Black-Widow Dottie.

“I think that the smart fans picked up something with Dottie early on,” said Fazekas. “Which was okay, it wasn’t a secret that we were planning on keeping for very long about her. People are smart. There’s a lot about Angie, her friend at the automat said people really seem to be responding to their relationship as well which is great.”

“[The men at the SSR’s] relationship with Peggy really changes over the course of the eight episodes,” added Butters. “These aren’t caricatures. They don’t stay rooted in their chauvinism. But their chauvinism was actually very real for the time. I think it’s actually fun to see how they’re affected by Peggy over the course of eight episodes.”

Additionally, “Agent Carter” has posted two new promo shots to its Facebook page.

AKA JESSICA JONES

Marvel has announced another cast member for their upcoming Netflix series, “A.K.A. Jessica Jones”: “Matrix” trilogy veteran Carrie-Anne Moss. Unlike previous cast additions David Tennant and Rachael Taylor, no character name was given for Moss’ character in the official announcement. The Wrap, however, has reported that Moss’ character goes by the name Harper. The official announcement does offer up a little bit of information about Moss’ role, calling her character “a no-nonsense woman who could prove a powerful ally to Jessica… if Jessica doesn’t completely alienate her first.”

DEADPOOL

During a recent interview, Collider chatted briefly with Ryan Reynolds about the finally-in-motion “Deadpool” feature film. He offered up his thoughts on first-time director Tim Miller and the film’s modest budget:

“[Tim Miller’s] always been the right guy He’s always, you know, shown nothing but a fierce loyalty to the canon of Deadpool and that’s the thing you look for first and foremost, a guy that is always wanting to push a little bit farther. And the advantage of doing a movie like this on a budget that is significantly less than any other kind of superhero movie is that you get to do things that you don’t get to do on other superhero movies so that’s what we’re most excited about.”

When asked about the film’s rating and if it would receive the R that many fans of the crude anti-hero desire, Reynolds said, “I have no idea … I don’t want to spoil anything so we’ll see. We hope.”

Opens February 12, 2016

DOCTOR STRANGE/SUICIDE SQUAD

Collider also caught up with the cast of “Z for Zachariah,” which includes “Suicide Squad’s” Margot Robbie and — potentially — “Doctor Strange’s” Chiwetel Ejiofor. When asked if he was appearing in the movie, Ejiofor responded with the appropriately vague, “You’ll be the first to know.” Robbie’s response was a little more concrete since it’s public knowledge that she’s been cast as Harley Quinn in the DC movie; she said she’s “pretty f’ing excited” to play the character. You can check out the interview below; comic book movie bits start five minutes in.

FANTASTIC FOUR

Entertainment Weekly has reported that the “Fantastic Four” trailer was watched 42 million times in the week after its release, breaking a record at Fox and beating the previous YouTube champ, “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

“We took our time with that trailer,” said screenwriter Simon Kinberg. “What we were trying to tell people was: Here’s the tone of the movie. My favorite trailers are the ones who set the world, the tone, the voice of the movie, without telling you too much about the story… It’s totally different from what the previous movies had done, and it’s much more akin to what the ‘Ultimate Fantastic Four’ series did.”

Opens August 7

GOTHAM

Following last night’s episode, Fox has started airing a trailer for next week’s “Gotham” titled “The Scarecrow.”

TV Guide learned from showrunner Bruno Heller that the Joker’s influence will soon be felt on the series — at least just a little bit. “We’ve said you’re going to be waiting a bit longer for it, but this is America — nobody wants to wait,” said Heller. “So, we will scratch the surface of that story, yes. But just scratch it — a little tap on the door.”

“Gotham’s” Jada Pinkett Smith talked to Comic Book Resources about Fish Moony’s future in both the titular city and the series. “Well, it’s not quite over yet, but we’ll see if Fish survives the season,” said Pinkett Smith. “It’s a little tense from here on out. That’s for sure. It’s a little rough on Fish from here on out. I think you’re going to see a lot more color from Fish in the next episodes to come. I think you’re going to see a lot more vulnerability. I think you’re going to see a lot more of a human side of Fish Mooney.”

TITANS

An unnamed source revealed to the Nerdist yesterday that DC A-Listers Nightwing and Barbara Gordon will head up TNT’s upcoming “Titans” series. Nightwing will be a detective working in Boston, having already split with Batman. Gordon will not use her Oracle name but will reportedly be wheelchair-bound and a computer hacker. The rest of the cast will reportedly be comprised of Hawk and Dove as well as Raven and Starfire. Warner Bros. declined to comment on this rumor.

VIXEN

Assignment X interviewed “Arrow” showrunner Marc Guggenheim about his involvement in the upcoming animated “Vixen” series for CW Seed

“I am [involved with ‘Vixen’], actually, and it’s a great deal of fun, I have to say,” said Guggenheim. “I always love working in different mediums, and we’re going to do, basically, an animated spin-off [of ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’]. It’s going to center on Vixen, who I came to know as a former member of the Justice League. This is a six-part origin story, but characters from ‘Flash’ and ‘Arrow’ are prominently involved, and it’s in the continuity and the world. There’s actually a question I’ve been getting on Twitter a lot — is Oliver [Stephen Amell] going to find out that Felicity [Emily Bett Rickards] kissed Barry [Grant Gustin]? That’s actually going to happen in the ‘Vixen’ cartoon. So part of the fun is that close cohesion, and Vixen’s such a great character, because first of all, she represents magic, which is an area that we haven’t explored on either of the two shows as yet.”
