COMIC REEL: Jackman Addresses Stewarts “Wolverine” Remarks; Robbie Talk Hardy’s “Suicide Squad” Exit

WOLVERINE 3

After hearing Patrick Stewart discuss his potential co-starring role in “Wolverine 3,” JoBlo decided to ask Hugh Jackman about the surprising development.

“I’m not going to deny it,” said Jackman. “I’ve learned over the years to try and put my best poker face on. By the way, play poker with me if you want to win some money, because I’m terrible. But, I’ve always seen it as a really important relationship, and we started with that and I think it’s a really important one. I think it would be really great to see it in the Wolverine movie, because we haven’t really explored it in the standalone Wolverine movies. So it’s not not not not not going to happen.”

SUICIDE SQUAD

USA Today talked to “Suicide Squad” stars Will Smith and Margot Robbie about Tom Hardy’s departure and the currently vacant role of Rick Flagg.

“We’ve still got to get it right,” said Smith, who will play Deadshot.

“This happens all the time,” said Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie. “People act like, ‘Oh my god, the movie must be ending!’ It’s just the deal with movies… A lot of the characters haven’t been portrayed before so it’s a pretty big undertaking. And it’s a big undertaking for the people who are going to play the characters who have been played, like the Joker [Jared Leto]. It’s big shoes to fill.”

Smith said that director David Ayer “turned the screenplay in before Christmas. What happens is Hollywood shuts down. But he was still working and he wanted to [start shooting] April 13th. So it takes a couple weeks to gear back up at the top of the year and people have taken [other] movies. He’s moving really quickly.”

THE ACTIVITY

Latino Review has revealed that Ken Nolan (“Black Hawk Down”) is attached to write the script for the big screen adaptation of Nathan Edmondson and Mitch Gerads’ “The Activity.”

AGENT CARTER

ABC has aired a promo for next week’s “Agent Carter” episode, titled “Snafu.” The clip finds Peggy Carter under interrogation.

Actress Bridget Regan, who plays the mysterious and deadly Dottie, spoke to CBR about what it’s like playing the series’ big bad.

“Well, we’ve gotten to see a lot of Peggy’s strengths already,” said Regan when asked about the inevitable showdown between the two. “Obviously, she’s an amazing shot — that’s her skill. We’ve gotten to see a lot of Dottie’s training. We know what Black Widows are capable of from seeing another very well-known Black Widow, who I sort of became obsessed with once I went down this road. They have very different backgrounds in terms of their training, so they would have very different styles and approaches to violence. I wouldn’t say they are the same, but they would be a good match.”

AKA JESSICA JONES

The Daily Mail has snapped the first few photos of Rachael Taylor on the New York City set of Netflix’s “Jessica Jones.” Taylor plays Patricia Walker, a character comic fans might know better by her code name Hellcat.

ARROW

“Arrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim spoke to CBR about Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and his new Atom suit’s abilities.

“For me, the most satisfying thing about the costume is, it looks like Brandon walked off of a movie set,” said Guggenheim. “I’ve never seen a TV show do a costume of this level of ambition before. He’s got a lot of cool tricks up his sleeve. People who are immediately expecting him to shrink are going to be disappointed. I will say that upfront. We always say, we’re doing the “Arrow” version of The Atom. That said, there will be some flying involved, which looks remarkably amazing. He has a lot of little gadgets and tricks and abilities built into that suit. I don’t want to spoil exactly what they are, because I think part of the fun of watching is seeing what that suit’s going to do next.”

The CW has released a clip from tonight’s episode, “Canaries,” that features the return of Vertigo (Peter Stormare).

SPIDER-MAN

Variety has new information regarding Marvel’s recent deal with Sony that allows them to share Spider-Man on the big screen. The report states that making Spider-Man youthful again is at the top of Marvel’s to-do list. The hero will be back to high school when he makes his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. Variety mentions that Marvel has started to consider actors for the role, although none of them have been officially approached yet. The actors include Dylan O’Brien (“The Maze Runner,” “Teen Wolf”) and Logan Lerman (the “Percy Jackson” franchise). Fans of Ultimate Spider-Man Miles Morales need not give up hope; the article states that the studio still “needs to figure out whether it wants to go with another Peter Parker or introduce another character that suits up as Spider-Man, including Miles Morales, whose father is African American and mother is Puerto Rican.”

IGN spoke with new Jean Grey actress Sophie Turner and got her take on what helped her land the coveted role.

“I think maybe one of the reasons that [the ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ team] chose me for [Jean] is because they saw the dark side of Sansa,” Turner said, referencing her “Game of Thrones” character’s recent mean streak. “Maybe they’re thinking, ‘Oh, Phoenix, Jean Grey.’ I definitely see a lot of parallels in there… [Jean] struggles with her power… and not being accepted in the human world. I think in terms of [Game of Thrones], that’s kind of the way Sansa felt in that she really wanted to be a normal princess/queen and live a normal life — and she doesn’t, because of all this havoc happens. I think Jean, in a way, feels that.”
