COMIC REEL: “Flash’s” New Trickster Look Revealed; “Agent Carter” Showrunners Talk Twists

THE FLASH

“Flash” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg talked to CBR about a number of topics, including the role that the Speed Force will play in the series.

“Obviously, Speed Force is very important to the Flash lore,” said Kreisberg. “We don’t have any sort of definitive — right now, the Speed Force is, in a way, a little bit like the Force in ‘Star Wars’ — before midi-chlorians came along! But it is this amorphous thing. Hopefully, again for comic book fans, will make them feel a little bit more like we’re heading in certain directions. For right now, it’s a catchall phrase that sort of speaks to you, a grander universe and a grander power and ultimately, grander abilities. Because if you know the comics, you know what having access to the Speed Force gives you the ability to do.”

Comic Book Movie has posted an Instagram pic of actor Devon Graye sporting his new Trickster outfit.

AGENT CARTER

Tuesday’s “Agent Carter” contained a big reveal for supporting character Dottie (Bridget Regan) and IGN talked to showrunner Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters about what it means for one of the Avengers. Spoiler alert for this week’s “Agent Carter,” obviously.

“[Dottie] is a product of the Black Widow Program,” said Fazekas.

“But we, in the series, are not actually calling her a Black Widow,” clarified Butters. Fazekas then added that more will be revealed about Dottie and the program in the next episode, “The Iron Ceiling.” The producers also made sure to mention that she is not Yelena Belova. “She’s Dottie for now,” said Butters. “And the fact is, the great and exciting thing for us is we’re showing the precursor to the Black Widow Program, as you will see in the upcoming episode, 105.”

AKA JESSICA JONES

David Tennant gave his first remarks about being cast as Kilgrave in “AKA Jessica Jones” to Radio Times.

“I grew up an absolute devotee to the worlds of Marvel, so the fact that they’ve expanded now into TV and film is a fact that I fantasized about when I was younger,” said Tennant. “So now to be part of it, to be on the other side of it is a thrill.”

When asked how it feels to play a villain like Purple Man, Tennant played it coy. “Who says it’s a villain? Make no assumptions. I’m saying nothing.”

ARROW

You can check out a recap for last night’s episode, “Midnight City,” over on Spinoff. The CW has also released a trailer for next week’s riotous episode, “Uprising.”

Comic Book Resources talked to Katie Cassidy ahead of last night’s Black Canary-centric episode and found out why it was smart to delay Laurel Lance’s superhero debut until season three.

“It’s more realistic and makes more sense,” said Cassidy. “We’ve said, ‘You can’t become a superhero overnight.’ If I turned Black Canary in season one, then what? That’s coming out of the gates too fast. It’s just too much. I agree with Marc [Guggenheim], Andrew [Kreisberg] and Greg [Berlanti] that every character has to be on a journey of hitting rock bottom. It took Oliver five years on the island. Laurel can’t all of sudden jump in and be like, ‘Okay, I’m going to be a superhero.’ She has to go through things.”

It’s a good thing Black Canary’s on Team Arrow, though, because ETonline has learned that the Suicide Squad is coming back for more. They’ll return in this season’s eighteenth episode, titled “Suicidal Tendencies,” and have a new member along for the ride: Cupid (Amy Gumenick).

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

News Australia talked to Paul Bettany about his upcoming debut as Vision in “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and his future plans with Marvel.

“That’s the really great thing about the Marvel gig for me,” said Bettany. “I have never known if I have had a job six months out ever in my life. And now I know that they have plans and I can be even more judicious about the stuff that I do outside of that work. I can wait for the right thing and feel really attached to it.”

LEGO has announced that they are making a video game based on both “Marvel’s the Avengers” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
