COMIC REEL: Dawson, D’Onofrio And More Appear In New “Daredevil” Stills; Mackie Confirms “Age Of Ultron” Role

ANT-MAN

MovieWeb and ComicBookMovie have reported on a ton of “Ant-Man” promo art, some of which have not been seen before and offer up new looks at Marvel’s diminutive hero.

ARROW

You can check out a recap of last night’s episode, “Nanda Parbat,” over on Spinoff.

Following last night’s episode, Variety posted a spoilery interview with the show’s producers. Andrew Kreisberg talked about how Arrow will react to Ra’s al Ghul’s offer to take over as the leader of the League of Assassins.

“Oliver is completely taken aback, because he’s not expecting that to be the case,” said Kreisberg. “It was something that Greg [Berlanti] and Marc [Guggenheim] and I talked about — that it was important to have a different villain this year; somebody who was going to be doing something completely different. In season one we had the incomparable John Barrowman, who had his mission. Obviously, last year Slade’s mission was one of vengeance. For this year to have Ra’s, who’s presented as this giant malevolent force, but then to come up and basically offer the keys to the kingdom to our hero, it just felt like such a different way to go and a different relationship for Oliver to have with the villain. What Oliver’s reaction to it is, what Nyssa’s reaction to it is, what everyone’s reaction to it is, makes up the bulk of the next run of episodes — and what his answer is, and what that prompts all the other characters to do… It’s a different kind of threat because they’re asking him to join up. As Malcolm tells him in a subsequent episode [Ra’s] is not really asking. That leads to all sorts of interesting combinations and new paradigms.”

The CW has posted a trailer for “Arrow’s” next episode, “The Offer.” The promo expands a bit on the offer, with Ra’s al Ghul elaborating on what he sees in Oliver Queen’s future. The next episode of the CW series will arrive on March 18. You can check out the trailer and synopsis for “The Offer” below.

DC COMICS’ VILLAIN MURMUR SWEEPS INTO STARLING CITY – Still weighed down by his last meeting with Ra’s al Ghul (guest star Matt Nable), Oliver (Stephen Amell) returns home to find a new villain and his crew have started terrorizing Starling City – Michael Amar AKA Murmur (guest star Adrian Glynn McMorran), a man whose mouth has been sewn shut.

IZOMBIE

The CW has also released a synopsis for the upcoming pilot episode of “iZombie.”

“Pilot” – (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET) (Content Rating TBD) (HDTV)

A NEW SERIES FROM THE BRAINS BEHIND “VERONICA MARS” – Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver, “Masters of Sex,” “Once Upon a Time”) was a disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out…until she is turned into a zombie. Now stuck somewhere between half-alive and undead, Liv loses her drive and ambition. She breaks off her engagement with charming soul mate Major (Robert Buckley, “One Tree Hill”), fearful of infecting him with her condition. Liv transfers her medical residency to the city morgue in order to access the only form of sustenance left available to her – the only thing that allows her to maintain her humanity – brains. There are side effects to Liv’s new diet: With each brain Liv consumes, she experiences “visions” – flashes of the corpse’s memories – which often provide clues as to how they were killed. Her boss, the brilliant but eccentric Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli), encourages her to embrace this gift and to work with unproven homicide detective, Clive Babineaux, (Malcolm Goodwin, “True Blood”), to help solve these murders. In doing so, Liv finds a measure of peace, and a new sense of purpose in what her “life” has now become. David Anders also stars. Rob Thomas directed the episode written by Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright (#101). Original airdate 3/17/2015.

Premieres March 17 on the CW

SEX CRIMINALS

Deadline has announced that as part of an overall deal with Universal TV, Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky’s “Sex Criminals” is now being developed as a television series by the studio. Additionally, the deal between Universal and Fraction and Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Milkfed Criminal Masterminds production company will see additional works by the two comic book writers developed into television projects. In addition to their current independent work, the announcement also states that other original ideas from DeConnick and Fraction will be developed for television, as well as the work of other comic creators’ independent properties.

SPIDER-MAN

Latino Review has heard new details about Sony and Marvel Studios’ Spider-Man deal from an undisclosed source. The source says that Sony-hired producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach are producers in name only, adding that, “We have information from a source suggesting there is no financial involvement whatsoever and no direct creative control over Spidey coming from the old guard. Amy Pascal still has a say in the Mom-and-Pop arrangement she has with [Marvel Studios president Kevin] Feige, but Disney didn’t want to unite [Marvel Entertainment CEO Ike] Pearlmutter, Arad and Feige in earnest. This is the solution. What does that mean? It means Marvel might have a bit more control than we thought. It means the new Spider-Man has been insulated from BOTH Avi Arad and new Sony head, superhero property curse, Tom Rothman.”

SUPERGIRL

While at Film Independent’s Spirit Awards, CBR talked to future Supergirl — and “Whiplash” actor — Melissa Benoist.

“What’s so wonderful about [Kara Zor-El] is that she is such a relatable character, amongst her powers,” said Benoist. “What I’m the most excited about is telling a story about a human being really realizing their potential and their strength, and I think that’s something that everyone will root for and want in their own lives — I’m really excited about that.”

Entertainment Weekly talked to Laura Benanti, the recently cast actress that will play Supergirl’s Kryptonian mother. She addressed the age difference between herself and her daughter, played by Melissa Benoist. “It’s very early on, so I wouldn’t feel comfortable saying anything other than our mere nine-year age difference will make sense. On Krypton age doesn’t necessarily matter. A lot of people on Twitter were like, ‘She’s too young to be her mom!’ But it will all make sense once you see the show.”

THE WALKING DEAD

Entertainment Weekly has revealed that “The Walking Dead’s” season five finale will expand to 90 minutes in length. AMC described the season finale with a quick synopsis.

Daryl finds himself in trouble while out on the run. Meanwhile, in Alexandria, Rick and his group continue to feel like outsiders as danger lurks near the gates.
