COMIC REEL: Momoa Sends Marvel A Message; Reynolds Talks “Deadpool’s” “Devotion” To Canon

AQUAMAN

Latino Review has reported on one fan’s interaction with Jason Momoa at Indiana Comic Con. Liz Guadiana met the future Aquaman at the con and got an interesting autograph from him.

Guadiana explains: “Hey guys, remember that poster I got? I had it signed at Indy Comic today by Jason Mamoa. I asked Jason, ‘Can you write down a reason why all these DC haters out there should join our DC universe.'” Momoa’s response? “Fuck Marvel!”

ARROW

Warner Bros. has released the sizzle reel for the remaining episodes of “Arrow’s” third season.

The CW has also posted a behind the scenes featurette about this week’s episode, “The Offer,” that includes an interview with executive producer Marc Guggenheim.

The Hollywood Reporter also talked to Guggenheim about the episode and the inclusion of the Lazarus Pit in the series.

“All year long we’ve been teasing what comic book fans know as the Lazarus Pit,” said Guggenheim. “We’ll learn a lot more about that in 316… The world of magic fits pretty well into the world of ‘Arrow.’ We’ve already seen superpowers on the show. Once you’ve seen super powers, the occult and magic — that actually fits better in ‘Arrow’ than superpowers.”

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Marvel’s Twitter account has revealed another character poster for “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” this time focusing on the film’s villain, Ultron.

Findlay will play Shelly Webster, the finacee of Eric Draven; her death then inspires Draven to become the Crow. Jack Huston will star as the Crow.

DEADPOOL

While speaking with Shortlist, Ryan Reynolds briefly discussed what he believes will make the “Deadpool” film a success with fans.

“I’m incredibly happy about it — we’ve got a director that understands that world, and writers with a slavish devotion to the canon of that character,” said Reynolds. “That’s the most important aspect: it’s made in a way the most critical of fanboys could embrace. Well, that’s the hope.”

THE FLASH

Warner Bros. has posted the “Flash” sizzle reel originally created for PaleyFest to YouTube. The clip features Harrison Wells’ proclamation that Barry Allen will die.

ComicBook.com also spotted a quick cameo by Emily Kinney’s Bug-Eyed Bandit in the sizzle reel. The former “Walking Dead” actress will appear in “Flash’s” upcoming eighteenth episode, “All-Star Team-Up.”

GOTHAM

CBR spoke with Cameron Monaghan, the young actor playing Jerome, a character that could grow up to be the Joker.. Monaghan talked through his thought process when he was initially offered the role of a maybe-Joker.

“I got a call and they said, ‘Hey, there’s a character that could potentially be the Joker. Do you want to play it?’ I immediately said, ‘Hell, yeah.’ Then I was like, ‘Oh, wait. That’s a lot. Let me think about it.’ I took the weekend to think about it, got back to them and I decided I definitely wanted to do it.”

Monaghan also talked about his future as the character and Batman’s role in Joker’s origin. “Relating it to Jerome, I’m so curious to see where they take him. Batman is so integral to the Joker’s origin, and we don’t have that right now. However, Jerome is a person who existed in some capacity before that. There’s no reason he couldn’t have been that person before all of this happened. It will also be interesting to see if they want to go the route of the vat of chemicals. In Christopher Nolan’s films, he was a man who chose to simply put on make-up. Perhaps that’s even scarier, since he made the decision to be this creature.”

IZOMBIE

Ahead of “iZombie’s” premiere, executive producer Rob Thomas has spoken with the Hollywood Reporter about the series’s tone and lead character Liv’s diet.

“‘Veronica Mars’ and ‘iZombie’ are very similar in tone,” said Thomas. “[Executive producer] Diane Ruggeiro and I are constantly searching for this blend of comedy and drama — one where the drama still feels like it has stakes. It sounds weird to say that the zombie show needs to stay grounded, but every show creates a universe. What is out of bounds? We’re always trying to find the delicate balance of how funny we can be and still have the audience care about the emotional fallout of our characters. When Warner Bros. came to me with this comic, they wanted to find the next ‘Buffy,’ the next ‘Veronica Mars.’ They wanted a great female lead on the network. That was the mandate.”

Thomas talked more about Rose McIver’s lead character, a zombie named Liv. “We are making this huge bet that people will fall in love with our zombie. If ‘Warm Bodies’ hadn’t been done, if people didn’t realize that it was possible for people to like a zombie, then we would be much more nervous about it. You see her eating brains in just about every episode and if that turns people off, we’re in deep trouble. She’s pretty adorable. It’s not like she’s ripping skulls apart and mashing her face down into fresh brains. Usually she’ll toss a salad or roll it up in a taco. It’ll be sad if America watches her eat her first brain and goes ‘That’s it. We’re checking out.'”
