COMIC REEL: “Constantine” Goes Claymation In New Short; Bendis To Appear On “Late Night”

CONSTANTINE

NBC has begun airing a promo for next week’s “Constantine” episode, titled “Quid Pro Quo.”

ComicBook.com reported on “Constantine’s” midseason premiere ratings, noting that the series’ numbers took a bit of a dive in its new earlier timeslot. The 2015 premiere was watched by 3.08 million viewers and earned a 0.8 rating in the adults 18-49 demo. The winter finale episode pulled in a 1.0 in the demo. Showrunner Daniel Cerone tweeted about the less than ideal development.

If you feel like a laugh after hearing that news, then check out DC’s new claymation “Constantine” special, “John Con Noir.” The short features voicework by series star Matt Ryan.

ANT-MAN

Despite the comparatively serious tone of the first “Ant-Man” teaser, actress Judy Greer (“Arrested Development,” “Archer”) recently expressed her feelings about the way Marvel embraces comedy to IGN.

“They treat us really well and I really like the risks they’re taking with the comedy in their superhero movies kind of starting with ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,'” said Greer. “I’m friendly with James Gunn and I was so happy that Marvel allowed his personality and his voice to show through because he’s one of the funniest guys I know. It’s fun to see superheroes who aren’t just kicking ass but are also fully formed characters.”

Greer also revealed that the “Ant-Man” cast was allowed to improvise on the set. “I haven’t seen it yet but there was a lot of comedy on set and we did a lot of comedic improv,” she said. “I don’t know what will end up in the movie, but yeah.”

THE FLASH

IGN has posted an interview with “Flash” star Grant Gustin in which the actor touches on a number of topics.

On getting to work with Mark Hamill:

“It’s unbelievable, kind of. All the guest stars have been really amazing. Victor Garber, the fact that we got him blew my mind. Clancy Brown, who’s been in so many award-winning films and Tom Cavanaugh is a series regular, and Jesse L. Martin I’ve been a fan of my whole life. But Mark Hamill, that’s kind of a different type of holy shit, you’re one of the most legendary iconic characters of all time. So it’s really fucking cool and I’m really excited to meet him and his storyline has some really cool twists involved that are connected to his stint from 25 years ago on ‘the Flash’ which is cool that we’re doing that nod. It’s really exciting.”

On Peek-A-Boo’s debut:

“Yeah, that was… What is that, episode twelve? That’s a different kind of episode. I liked it. I hate giving away too much, but yeah, that was a different kind of episode because that episode was about relationships, in general, between our villains and our regulars. I can’t give away too much about that storyline because I don’t want to and most of her stuff is with her partner, her villain partner/boyfriend character. I wasn’t there for much of it but it’s a really interesting character. It’s really different from any other villain we’ve had on the show. It’s one of the ones you kind of feel for. That whole episode focuses on relationships between all of our characters.”

On a potential “Supergirl” crossover:

“Supergirl, yeah. It also is exhausting to think about. But, if they’re like, “Hey we’re doing Supergirl now and we want the Flash to be on a Supergirl episode,” I’m going to get excited about that and then after that worry about how we’re going to make it work. But yeah, of course! I’m down. I’m down for any type of cool crossover as long as we can make it work.”

ComicBookMovie has posted a couple of quick promos for “Flash’s” midseason premiere.
