COMIC REEL: Momoa Talks Aquaman In “Batman V Superman”; Gregg On “SHIELD’s” Inhuman Addition

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

New Aquaman Jason Momoa talked to Entertainment Weekly for a bit about his role in “Batman V Superman” and how much fans would get to see of the champion of the seas in the film.

“Well, it’s Batman and Superman, it’s not my movie,” said Momoa. “It’s the first time in history to have them both on the screen together, and I’m just excited to see those two up there… You know, ‘Justice League’ is still quite a ways away. But I’m looking forward to it. Henry’s a sweetheart, Ben is a badass, so I’m really looking forward to when we all shoot ‘Justice League.'”

Momoa also talked about director Zack Snyder’s decision to post the first picture of the new Aquaman. “That was a shocker for sure. It was supposed to be a surprise in 2016, so it definitely helps [our show]. I’ve been holding that secret for a long time. Zack Snyder called me up and said, ‘I’m posting this picture now.’ He’s just a genius and I love him to death. He sent it over and we’re in the middle of the editing suite for the thing I’m doing right now, and we all freaked out, man. It was so amazing to see it come out.”

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

Marvel has released a clip from tomorrow’s episode of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” which features Coulson and May having a talk with their prisoner.

In a post on ComicBook.com, Chloe Bennett revealed when she learned of her inhuman fate. “[T]hey told me probably about two days before, but I found out and kept it a secret, which is really impressive for me, like two weeks beforehand,” said Bennett. “I thought I was She-Hulk for a while, so I’ve been working out a lot. No, they told me pretty last minute.”

Bennett also revealed that she quickly started researching her character after learning of the big reveal. “Yes. I don’t think I should tell you which [comics I researched] though, because I think they’re the comics they’re going to pull from. But yes I did do my research and went and obsessed over Daisy Johnson for a while after.”

Clark Gregg spoke about the addition of the Inhumans to the show in an interview with IGN. “It’s just a part of the world that I really love,” said Gregg of the Inhumans. “I always clicked the most with the stuff that feels the most… all my favorite sci-fi, all my favorite comics, they were always about stuff that felt like a way you could look at stuff that was too hard to look at in real life. There’s a way that stuff like the Inhumans… Whether it’s in X-Men or whether it’s inhumans, they always represented people who evolved in a different way where some of them were outcasts or treated like something was wrong with them and yet, perhaps, in many ways represented a vital new part of what we’re supposed to be… I’m really excited to see how they use that part of it on our show. It’s one of the things that’s fun about being on this show. When you understand what it is, you see ‘Winter Solider’ and it’s ‘Agents of Nothing.’ Right when you think you know what that is, there’s the attack at the end of the season and he can’t stop carving [symbols]. It keeps adding new elements to it. That said, we’re at nine o’clock, with a darker tone — less ICERS, more bullets. I think it’s finding its way to be more and more; its own central self that can withstand having things brought into it.”

Additionally, Viola Davis spoke to the Hollywood Reporter about taking on the role of Amanda Waller in the film.

“As a comic book and Wonder Woman fan, I love the whole DC Comics universe,” said Davis. “I traded comic books as a kid so all of that appeals to me. When you dream about being an actor as a kid, that’s what you dream about. That’s like play acting: being the superhero, getting the gun; it plays into that fantasy. ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ changed my exposure. I don’t know if it changed the quality of roles as much as it changed the exposure. I mean certainly Amanda Waller is a fabulous character.”
