COMIC REEL: Cox Discusses “Tight” Daredevil Suit; “FF” Writer Talks Codenames

DAREDEVIL

Thanks to the first pictures from Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series, we all know that Charlie Cox will throw together an all black getup and take to the streets as Daredevil. But what about the character’s iconic red suit? E! Online asked Cox about his super duds — and actually got a response.

“It’s pretty tight, I’m not going to lie,” said Cox. “They’ve done such a great job. I can’t wait for fans to really see it. But put it this way, there is no world where you change in a phone box. It takes four people and about 45 minutes.”

Premieres on April 10 on Netflix

AGENT CARTER

You can check out a recap of last night’s episode, “The Blitzkrieg Button,” over on Spinoff. To get you psyched for next week’s episode, ABC has posted a promo “The Iron Ceiling.”

ScreenCrush also has photos from “The Iron Ceiling.” You can check out a couple of them below.

The Hollywood Reporter interviewed showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters about how their period piece is connected to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“We are connected in a very super cool way, up to the very last episode in ways people will not be expecting,” said Fazekas. One of those connections arrives next week: Dum Dum Dugan and the Howling Commandos. “We got Dum Dum Dugan,” said Fazekas of Neal McDonough’s character who was last seen in 2013’s “Agent Carter” short film. “The others are other Commandos that do exist [in the comics], but the one you’ll recognize from [‘Captain America: The First Avenger’] is Dum Dum.”

The CW has released a new featurette — titled “Merlyn’s Final Test” –focusing on “Arrow’s” stunts.

With her big debut arriving tonight, Entertainment Weekly talked to Katie Cassidy about her transformation into the Black Canary.

“Even though it’s messy, you can tell there’s fire,” said Cassidy of Laurel Lance’s transformation. “She has some skill, but she’s not trained… But then she proves herself because she has so much heart and drive. Arsenal [Colton Haynes] is the first person to come around to it.”

FANTASTIC FOUR

Following the first “Fantastic Four” teaser trailer, Empire caught up with director Josh Trank and screenwriter Simon Kinberg and asked them a couple of big questions about the film. When asked if the heroes would have their classic codenames in the film, Kinberg remained vague.

“We want some of that to be a surprise,” said Kinberg. “It is in many ways an origin story, but it’s also about how they react to this transformation, and the ways the world does or doesn’t react to them, which is different, I would say, than all other superhero films.”

The writer did admit that the film’s origin hews closely to the version depicted in “Ultimate Fantastic Four. “Well, I can say this — our characters go to another dimension,” said Kinberg. “It was something we discussed from our earliest conversations.”

Director Josh Trank spoke a little bit about the tone and why he decided to ground the film in reality. “You can’t have the word ‘fantasy’ or ‘fantastical’ without a contrast,” said Trank. “It has to stem from a grounded experience. You can’t have bad without good, you can’t have right without wrong, you can’t have fantastic without mundane. You need to experience all that to really earn the title of the film, ‘Fantastic Four’.”

THE FLASH

You can check out a recap of last night’s episode, “The Sound and the Fury,” over on Spinoff. The CW has also released a trailer for next week’s episode, “Crazy For You.”

Entertainment Weekly talked to “Flash” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg about Reverse Flash and Harrison Wells’ end game

“The end game will happen this season,” said Kreisberg. “Wells has a definitive plan. When you look back, you will see he has had a definitive reason for doing all the things he has done throughout the season. We think it makes sense, hopefully you all will too.”

Kreisberg also spoke to their decision to reveal Wells’ dual identity so early in the series’ run. “With ‘Arrow,’ we learned not to jerk the audience around too much,” said Kreisberg. “Sometimes people withhold secrets at their peril. We felt like if we hadn’t revealed it then it wouldn’t have been a satisfying conclusion to those first nine episodes. The only debate we had amongst ourselves is how long will the audience accept knowing that he’s the villain while having the rest of our characters not know, which is something we’ve been dealing with for the back half of the season. Are people going to feel like they’re dumb for not realizing this? Part of what’s keeping this next stream of episodes going is how good at hiding his villainy Wells is and how strong Tom’s performance is, and having episodes like ‘The Sound and the Fury’ where he really is being incredibly selfless, and yet part of you knows it’s all a show and it’s all fake, but just how effective it really is. Even more so than that, how much you want it to not be true.”

Pied Piper actor Andy Mientus talked to CBR about his character and how important it is to him to play one of the first gay characters in a live-action comic book property.

“It’s an incredible show of progress,” said Mientus. “Ten years ago, having any gay character on any show would have caused major controversy or uproar. Now, there’s pretty much a gay character on every show, including a hit superhero show. That’s amazing to me. It speaks to the producers taking the fans seriously and trusting them with being able to handle that, rather than just assuming a comic book crowd is some straight-male, adolescent crowd that would be disgusted by that. They know the comic book crowd is really diverse, mature and accepting. It shows that they are taken seriously and are ready for this. I am honored to be part of that.”

SUICIDE SQUAD

Jo Blo has a number of “Suicide Squad” rumors that they have heard from an unnamed source. The site claims that Ed Harris and Max Martini are up for the role of Rick Flag Sr. while Karl Urban may be considered for Rick Flag Jr. Gary Sinise is rumored to play a general in the film, which Jo Blo theorizes could be Lois’ father, General Lane. Joe Manganiello is the first choice for Deathstroke with Jason Clarke coming in second.

One cast member that is confirmed, Margot Robbie, talked to Super Hero Hype about whether or not she will use a Brooklyn accent as Harley Quinn.

“None of those things have been set in stone at this point, but according to the comics, she’s from New York and I think Brooklyn, so there may be a slight… I couldn’t imagine it would be as strong as the ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ accent,” said Robbie. “The lingo will be the difference between that and the other character I played in ‘Wolf’ but I don’t know yet. We haven’t spoken about it.”
