COMIC REEL: “Daredevil” Star Talks “Civil War”; Del Toro Provides Update On “Dark Universe”

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

IGN has an interview with Charlie Cox wherein the actor talks about Daredevil’s odds of appearing in “Civil War.”

“I’ve been reading ‘Civil War’ — and Daredevil does appear in that,” said Cox. “And look — again, just to clarify — I have not been called about that. I haven’t been invited to that party! But it would be very very cool. Just to be in the background, saying cool stuff every now and then. It would be cool to be with all those guys.”

DAREDEVIL

A pair of new TV spots have been released for “Daredevil,” touting the character’s gifts and his status as “the first Defender.”

Charlie Cox also appeared on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and discussed the training he underwent in order to play the blind Matt Murdock.

IGN has an interview with “Daredevil’s” Vincent D’Onofrio wherein he talks about his character Kingpin’s evolution and the awesomeness of one day possibly being able to kick Spider-Man’s butt.

Premieres on April 10 on Netflix

ARROW

You can check out a recap of last night’s “Arrow” episode, “Public Enemy,” over on Spinoff. You can also check out a promo for next week’s installment, “Broken Arrow,” below.

When asked whether or not Michael Rowe’s Deadshot will be making any more appearances, including the possibility of becoming a regular in season 4, Marc Guggenheim has revealed via his Tumblr that we won’t be seeing Deadshot anytime soon.

Unfortunately, Deadshot is off the table for the nonce.

Deadshot will be played by Will Smith in the “Suicide Squad” feature film, which may play a role in his disappearance from “Arrow.”

BATMAN ’66

Earlier this week, Adam West and Burt Ward revealed that they are lending their voices to an animated feature commemorating the 60s anniversary of “Batman ’66.” Now 13th Dimension has heard from an unnamed source that Julie Newmar, who played Catwoman on the ’60s show, will also make an appearance. Warner Bros. has not yet confirmed this information.

DARK UNIVERSE

IGN has an update from Guillermo del Toro regarding the status of his long in-development “Dark Universe” film, which would star dark DC heroes like Constantine and Zatanna.

“We turned in our [script] revision, and it all depends on the calendar, you know?” said del Toro. “If I can do it, I would love to do it. And I think the screenplay and the characters are very solid.” Del Toro added that if he’s not available to direct the film, “somebody will do it.”

“You cannot say, ‘Yeah, I’ll do it after I do this,’ or ‘I have the first season of The Strain,'” he added. “[‘Justice League Dark’] needs to fall into the plan of the DC Universe.”

DEADPOOL

After an April Fool’s joke saying that “Deadpool” would receive a PG-13 rating, Ryan Reynolds and — surprise? — Mario Lopez revealed in a mock “Extra” segment that the film will definitely be rated R.

Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld visited the “Deadpool” set and posted a picture of himself with star Ryan Reynolds to his Instagram account, along with a lengthy message to fans.

Congrats to Team Deadpool on each and every victory along the Deadpool highway! The R rating ensures the film will be unique and faithful to the amazing vision of the filmakers Tim Miller, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and Ryan freakin’ Reynolds!! DEADPOOL RANT….So you’re thinking, “of course Liefeld, you brought Deadpool to life, what else are we to expect but you to cheer, homer.” Let’s get something straight, after Wolverine:Origins I went on the apology tour, for those many umpteen thousands of you who came up to me at the bazillion conventions I do and asked me “Hey, Liefeld, what did you think of Deadpool in Wolverine:Origins?” you saw me smile through gritted teeth and give a very deliberate response “Well, it’s a good start..” Because I already knew that there were plans underway to restore Deadpool and that given the opportunity, the new team that Ryan was assembling would produce the film we all wanted. But I knew that I couldn’t apologize twice, I couldn’t smile through gritted teeth any longer, this one would have to be earned. Rhett Rheese and Paul Wernick came on board and wrote the most amazing, exciting, unique comic book script I’d ever read. Even my Marvel pals have confided and said, “Wow, that Deadpool script…That’s spectacular..It should get made” but it didn’t. And years passed and management at Fox passed and executives came and went, each unable to move it forward. During this time, the outstanding Tim Miller stepped into the directors chair to guide the film and from the word go, he started making things happen. I saw storyboards, costume designs and animatics. The vision was becoming a reality and that amazing test reel footage was shot and I thought for certain that the film would be on its way to a green light. Then…more waiting. And here we are, this outstanding vision is being filmed and prepared for a Feb. 12th 2016 release date. I can tell you that you are in for a cinematic comic book experience unlike any you have experienced! Deadpool is all that you’ve been waiting for and a round of applause to Tim, Rhett, Paul, Ryan and Simon Kinberg for seeing it through! #robliefeld #deadpool
