COMIC REEL: Hiddleston Says What He Knows About “Thor: Ragnarok”; Kinberg Explains Shared X-Men Franchise

THOR: RAGNAROK

Collider spoke to Tom Hiddleston and learned what he knows about the third “Thor” film — which seems to be surprisingly little.

“I’m sorry to say I have nothing to give you,” said Hiddleston. “I literally have nothing. I don’t know what’s happening. [laughs] That’s what I know, that’s literally the limits of what I know.”

He also commented on his contract and if his time as Loki is almost up. “Honestly, I don’t know. It’s all in Kevin Feige’s brain. It feels like the Marvel Universe is expanding at such a rate, and I wish — I’m not being coy — I don’t know where Loki fits into that. So we’ll see. Your guess is as good as mine.”

Opens on November 3, 2017

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

ABC has released a description and photos for “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s” season three premiere episode, titled “Laws of Nature.”

DAREDEVIL

Drew Goddard revealed to Collider that he has a part to play in “Daredevil’s” second season.

“My job is wonderful which is — I mean my friends are running it, Marco [Ramirez] and Doug [Petrie], and when I say, ‘What do you guys need?’ they say, ‘Come in, talk,'” Goddard told Collider. “That’s how it works, I’m still the executive producer. I show up and we talk about Matt Murdock and I say, ‘Do you need any more help?’ and they say, ‘No,’ and then I leave [laughs].”

Returns to Netflix in 2016

DEADPOOL

While talking to Collider, “Deadpool” producer Simon Kinberg discussed that they’re already considering a sequel for the Merc with a Mouth.

“We certainly are talking about the sequel,” said Kinberg. “We were talking about the sequel while we were making the movie just because when you make a film like this that’s from a serialized source material, you hope that it’s the first of many… But yeah [Fox is] feeling good about it, we’re all feeling really proud of it, so hopefully before it comes out we will be well into the process of figuring out a sequel.”

DOCTOR STRANGE

GAMBIT

In an interview with MTV, X-movie universe producer Simon Kinberg talked about the shared nature of “Gambit,” “Deadpool” and the “X-Men” films.

“The idea is that we’ve sort of reset the timeline after ‘Days of Future Past’ in some ways, and if not erased, certainly allowed for change from ‘X1,’ ‘2,’ ‘3,’ everything from ‘Days of Future Past’ forward, 1973, everything we set now becomes canon,” he said. “So the ‘Gambit’ movie, the ‘Deadpool’ movie, will exist in a world that acknowledges whatever happened in ‘Days of Future Past’ and moving forward. Doesn’t mean they’ll always interact with those characters, obviously, it’s not like every movie has all the characters, but they all have to exist within the same rules.” He then added, “There will be interplay between different characters in different movies.”

He also spoke about how he keeps all these films and their place in the new canon straight. “I don’t have it up on a wall, but I have it on my computer, and I have it sort of tattooed on my brain now too,” Kinberg said. “Nothing external, so that if I get knocked over the head, no one can read it. It’s literally behind my eyelids. But yeah, we have a clear sense of the directions we want to take them in and in my my mind at least, how we could start to cross-pollinate sort of with those characters that have their standalone movies.”

GOTHAM

TV Guide has a hunch about “Gotham’s” first few season two episodes, and they might end up being a bloodbath. According to the site, the first few episodes will feature two major deaths. The site says that “one of the deaths is so sudden and unexpected, it caught us completely off-guard. The other, meanwhile, rocks an already reeling James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) to the core and will serve as a motivating force for him all season long.”

Returns September 21 on Fox

MAN OF STEEL 2

Heroic Hollywood has a new batch of rumors regarding the seemingly, perpetually on-hold “Man of Steel” sequel. The first rumor actually debunks the “permanently on-hold” claim; next the unnamed source says that Warner Bros. has offered director George Miller “Man of Steel 2” and even “Justice League Dark.” Additionally, if “MoS 2” happens, HH has heard a rumor that Brainiac will be the villain.

SUPERGIRL

CBS has released a new featurette focusing on Supergirl’s origin story.

Premieres October 26 on CBS

THE WALKING DEAD

Ahead of season six’s premiere, Robert Kirkman spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the show’s comic book roots.

“I can’t tell you how closely season 6 will follow the comics!” he said. “We have to keep people guessing. If you’re paying attention, the material around volume 13 or so of the comic series has been getting adapted into the show most recently, but we always reserve the right to stray from the source or even jump back or ahead and do things out of order. All that said, the biggest differences we’ll see revolve around Daryl, who was never in the comic, and Carol, who was long dead and never as cool as the TV version by this point.”

Return October 11 on AMC

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

While talking to MTV, producer/writer Simon Kinberg spoke about the decision to make Oscar Isaac’s Apocalypse look more like his comic book counterpart.

“I feel like we have been, the ‘X-Men’ franchise, has been growing a little bit more into science fiction,” said Kinberg. “I think ‘Days of Future Past’ with time travel and the Sentinels took us into a slightly broader, more science fiction world than the films had occupied in the past. We felt like the movies were ready for something that was slightly more, let’s say, cosmic. Once we made the decision for Apocalypse to be the villain at the center of the movie, we wanted to be true to the comics, which are sort of, like you, say, not costume, but it’s not just a guy in a helmet. It is more cosmic.”
