COMIC REEL: “Constantine” & “Gotham” Debut Clips; Singer Teases “X-Men: Apocalypse” With “Exodus”

MARVEL

For those of you with plenty of time off of work, MTV has highlighted a project that can keep you busy and entertained. Comics Archive editor Michael Furth has put together a chronological edit of all of Marvel’s Phase 1 slate, even splicing in all the flashback footage from Phase 2 films and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” to create the complete MCU picture. While the “Omnibus” isn’t available to watch online, you can watch a timecode-filled step-by-step guide to creating your own below.

SHAZAM

A number of sites are reporting that DC Comics has confirmed “Shazam’s” inclusion in their shared movie universe. These rumblings originated with a blog post published on DC’s official blog, which states that “Warner Bros. revealed a full slate of ten DC Entertainment feature films all set within the same universe.” The word “all” has lead sites to assume that this means that “Shazam,” which is a property Warner Bros. shares with New Line, has been officially announced as part of the shared universe. While this may be the case, it’s also unlikely that DC would make that big of an announcement in a blog post published during the busiest days of the holiday season.

New Line president Toby Emmerich previously told Entertainment Weekly that “Shazam” would standalone. “It feels to me like Shazam will have a tone unto itself,” said Emmerich. “It’s a DC comic, but it’s not a Justice League character, and it’s not a Marvel comic. The tone and the feeling of the movie will be different from the other range of comic book movies.” CBR has reached out to DC for clarification regarding “Shazam’s” role in the upcoming slate.

SUICIDE SQUAD

“Suicide Squad” writer Sean Ryan recently talked to CBR about what it’s like watching the ongoing series he’s currently penning become a major motion picture.

“Yeah, I’ve been following it as much as anyone else is; I saw the casting new last week,” said Ryan. “To me it’s kind of crazy that there’s a ‘Suicide Squad’ movie. For me it’s gone from me writing the book and telling people who don’t read comics what I do, from me saying, ‘I write ‘Suicide Squad” and them being confused and not knowing what that is to all of sudden people think I’m now best friends with Will Smith and hanging out on weekends. I’m like, ‘No, no, no! [Laughs] I have nothing to do with that, I have nothing to do with the movie, no one tells me anything about that. But it’s pretty neat that it’s a huge thing with Will Smith and Jared Leto. With the casting it’s nice to see what characters are going to be in the movie, just to see if moving forward in ‘Suicide Squad’ we could try to maybe try to work some of the characters in the movie into the book. We’ll see. The Joker’s a tricky character to pin down.”

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

“X-Men: Apocalypse” director Bryan Singer recently took a break from enjoying Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” to post a picture to Instagram that has whipped mutant fans into a frenzy. The image features ancient Egypt, specifically the time period that spawned the upcoming mutant movie’s titular bad guy. We even got a glimpse of ancient Egypt in the “X-Men: Days of Future Past” post-credits scene — and it’s likely that we’ll see even more of it in “Apocalypse.”
