ANT-MAN

In an interview with IGN, John Slattery — who will once again play Howard Stark in “Ant-Man” — discussed sharing the role with Dominic Cooper.

“No, I haven’t watched any of [Cooper’s performance as Stark],” said Slattery. “It took me two years to watch my own [‘Iron Man 2’]. Well no, that’s not true. I’ve seen scenes and I’ve seen him in other things and he’s terrific. I’ve never met him and I’m not a very knowledgeable fan. I’m sure people have, ‘How dare he play this when Dominic…?!’ I don’t really get into that so much. My participation hasn’t been that involved. I was there for a day and whenever we did ‘Iron Man 2,’ it was not that much more involved this time.”

Opens July 17

ARROW

Marc Guggenheim has revealed the title of “Arrow’s” season finale via Twitter.

The CW has posted another behind-the-scenes stunt video focusing on Arsenal and Black Canary.

Airs Wednesdays on the CW

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

A new featurette for “Age of Ultron” gives an in-depth look at Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, two — as Joss Whedon puts it — “massively important characters.”

During an appearance at Emerald City Comicon, Anthony Mackie discussed what it’s like shooting “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

“Remember the first time you saw a 3D movie, and got a headache, and were like, ‘What happened to my brain?'” asked Mackie. “‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is like that, with The Rock punching you in the face. It’s like Disneyland for adults. It’s like going to Vegas with an unlimited credit card. It’s by far the most stupendous film experience you’ll have. It’s just ridiculous.”

Mackie then revealed how he found out he was going to have a part to play in “Age of Ultron.” “This is how it goes,” he said. “About two weeks ago, I got a call. My friend was like, ‘Yo, Age of Ultron posters out.’ Why didn’t tell me you were in it?’ ‘I’m in it?’ That’s how Marvel rolls. When you see somebody and they say, ‘We can’t tell you,’ that’s because they don’t know.”

Opens May 1

CAPTAIN MARVEL / X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

The Wrap’s Jeff Sneider has a twofer when it comes to big Marvel movie rumors.

DAREDEVIL

Netflix has released a new motion poster for “Daredevil” via the show’s Facebook page.

We’re Going to Make A Difference

Let’s get to work. #Daredevil

Posted by Marvel’s Daredevil on Friday, March 27, 2015

In addition to that text-heavy promo, Netflix has released another TV spot with new footage focusing on Daredevil’s origin.

Scott Glenn, who plays Stick, revealed in an interview with Collider that his character will be seen in one episode.

“I play a blind assassin, who is the mentor of [Matt Murdock],” said Glenn. “So, all it took for me was to read the script of this one episode that I’m in — Episode 7 — and I just totally loved the character. I thought it was going to be hard and physically demanding and just fun to do, and it was. And then, I got to go to New York and spend some time there. I’m a little scared of it because I haven’t seen it yet. The trailer is great, but I’m still going to be super nervous on April 10th. I’m probably going to watch Episode 1, and then skip right to Episode 7 because I don’t know whether I pulled it off or not. Everyone tells me I did, but I saw none of that footage. It was the first time I’d ever played a blind person, let alone a blind person who was super physically capable, so we’ll see.”

Premieres on April 10 on Netflix

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD

AMC has aired the first teaser for “Fear the Walking Dead.”

The official synopsis for the series has also been released online.

What did the world look like as it was transforming into the horrifying apocalypse depicted in The Walking Dead? This summer, AMC will answer that question with Fear The Walking Dead, an all-new original series set in Los Angeles, following new characters as they face the beginning of the end of the world.
Starring Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, Sons of Anarchy), Cliff Curtis (Missing, Gang Related), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm) and Executive Produced by Dave Erickson (Marco Polo, Sons of Anarchy), Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert, Fear The Walking Dead premieres this summer, with a second season airing in 2016.

THE FLASH

In a post-screening interview with the press, including ComicBook.com, Mark Hamill discussed what it was like returning to a “Flash” TV series and playing the Trickster once again.

SUICIDE SQUAD

Viola Davis recently spoke with “Entertainment Tonight” about playing Amanda Waller in “Suicide Squad,” specifically whether the DC character is a bigger badass than Davis’ character in “How To Get Away With Murder.”

“You know what that’s a tough one, but I would give it to Amanda Waller,” said Davis. “I’ve been doing my research on Amanda Waller and I’m a little scared because she’s really unapologetic. I mean seriously, it’s beyond ‘she don’t play.’ She’s on the right side of the law, but really she should probably be at Rikers Island — that’s just my opinion, Amanda!”

Two additional names can be added to the “Squad,” although their roles are still a mystery. Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, told Canada’s eTalk that he’s been prepping for a part in the film. Boxer Raymond Olubowale also revealed to The Sun that he has a role in the movie, saying, “It’s fantastic, genuinely fantastic. It’s an opportunity to never grow up. You’re just one big kid playing make believe and you’re compensated well.”

Opens on August 5, 2016

SUPERGIRL

“Supergirl” pilot director Glen Winter revealed via Twitter that production on the episode wrapped yesterday.
