COMIC REEL: Kreisberg On Earth-2’s “Flash” Impact; Watts Gives “Spider-Man” Script Update

THE FLASH

You can check out a recap of last night’s “Flash” right here. There’s also a preview of next week’s episode, which you can see below.

The CW has released a new poster and trailer for the second season of “The Flash,” with the poster featuring Barry crouching next to Jay Garrick’s helmet and the trailer showcasing some behind-the-scenes footage.

Former WWE champion and actor Adam “Edge” Copeland also spoke with CBR News about his portrayal of Atom Smasher in the show’s second season premiere.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg also spoke with Variety about the “Flash’s” premiere, specifically the episode’s spoilery death.

When asked if Earth-2’s existence will allow us to see departed characters again, Kreisberg replied: “Yeah, that’s part of the fun of Earth-2 and introducing the concept of Doppelgangers and that’s part of what we’ll be exploring this season. We were really conscious of not wanting to repeat ourselves and last year was obviously all about time-travel. I think that whether people realized it or not, the whole series was about time-travel from the beginning… Looking back, you realize that there was a lot more time-travel in the pilot than you might’ve realized at first, and we wanted to do something different in season two, especially with ‘Legends’ co-opting the time-travel concept. So obviously, the multiverse is a huge part of the DC Comics universe and it felt right to tackle it. And as we always do with ‘Arrow’ and ‘Flash,’ we laid the seeds of season two towards the end of season one, so creating the singularity and the breach and seeing Jay Garrick’s helmet were all portents of what was to come, and we’ve been having a lot of fun with it.”

Returns October 6 on the CW

ARROW

In an interview with MTV, the cast of “Arrow” and executive producer Marc Guggenheim discussed what’s in store for the upcoming season four, with Guggenheim specifically noting the difference between big bads like season two’s Deathstroke and season three’s Ra’s al Ghul and the villainous Damien Darhk.

“With Deathstroke and with Ra’s and Malcom [Merlyn], those were always guys who were the heroes of their own story,” Guggenheim said. “They were guys who were doing the wrong thing for what they thought were the right reasons. This year, we wanted to do something different. We wanted a villain who was truly villainous; who didn’t care about morality in the way that the previous three big bads did. Damian is pure evil. He’s the heart of darkness.”

However, things won’t remain totally dark all the time. Despite its grim and gritty reputation, “Arrow” lightens up a little in season four, with Diggle actor David Ramsey specifically pointing out that the usually somber and brooding Oliver cracks a joke in the first episode. But don’t except the show to ever go full-“Flash.”

“We can’t be ‘Flash,'” Ramsey explained. “‘The Flash’ is just so cute and bright. We work over there, too, and the set is brighter… and it’s funny, because when the characters come over to our world in the crossovers, they bring that with them.”

The CW has released a new photo of Thea (Willa Holland) in her superhero suit.

BROOKLYN ANIMAL CONTROL

Deadline has reported that “Boardwalk Empire” actor Stephen Graham will head up the cast of USA’s adaptation of “Brooklyn Animal Control,” the TV adaptation of the IDW Publishing comic.

DAREDEVIL

Joe Quesada has posted a look at his production art for “Daredevil” season two to his Tumblr. The image will be available as a poster at NYCC.

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD

Robert Kirkman has talked to “Entertainment Weekly” about “Fear’s” second season, specifically how the show will incorporate some water-based horror.

“Always trying to differentiate the two shows as much as possible, being on the water is vastly different than being on the land,” said Kirkman. “Anybody who’s concerned about there being not enough zombies because they’re on the water — because I’ve seen some people concerned about that — shouldn’t have any worries there. There’s definitely going to be a lot of intense action and a lot of awesome boat stuff. Despite the fact that zombies can’t walk on water and can’t swim, there will be plenty of zombies to be had.”

He continued: “When you see ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ you’ll probably stop asking why they didn’t just go to the water. You’ll start asking, why won’t they leave the water? Very dangerous. You’ll see. There’s a lot of cool stuff coming. ”

SPIDER-MAN

While talking to Yahoo!, “Spider-Man” director Jon Watts gave a vague answer when asked about the possibility of Miles Morales ever showing up in a “Spider” movie.

“I can’t talk about that, because, you know, that will reveal too much,” said Watts. “We’re still writing the story…we haven’t finished all the way through the story yet, so who knows.”
