COMIC REEL: Pics of “Batman v Superman’s” Cyborg; James Gunn’s Take on Cap’s Twist

BATMAN V SUPERMAN

With less than three weeks left to go until the “Batman v Superman” Ultimate Cut hits stores, behind-the-scenes photos from the set have surfaced of Ray Fisher’s Cyborg in the film.

The pics offer a better look at Cyborg’s transformation (which we saw very briefly in “Batman v Superman”), in addition to a close-up of Fisher’s half-cybernetic face.

Take a look at the Cyborg pics below:

CAPTAIN AMERICA

“Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn has sounded off on the Captain America Hydra twist, offering a very spoiler-y opinion on the changes to the character that were executed in this week’s “Captain America: Steve Rogers” #2.

Gunn wrote to Facebook:

“Captain America: Steve Rogers” #2 is in stores now.

THE WALKING DEAD

Residents of Cynthiana, Kentucky, are honoring the creator of “The Walking Dead” and the series original and current artists — Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore and Charlie Adlard — by painting a mural for the franchise on the wall of the town’s local theatre.

The following videos goes behind the design of the mural and the folks who painted it:

Portuguese artist Sergie Odeith is heading the project (with funding from the Cynthiana Arts Council) that will see Sheriff Rick Grimes, Carl, Michonne and Daryl Dixon depicted in the mural. Emily Ammerman, a board member on the council, said of the project, “We wanted this first mural to really make a statement…And it’s great to honor the Walking Dead, because it has been such a big hit and people here are proud of the local connections.”

Kirkman is set to revisit Cynthiana for “Walking Dead Day” in August. He and artist Tony Moore developed the project in Cynthiana while they were still residents.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Blu-ray box art and details have been revealed for “Captain America: Civil War.” The set will release in stores on September 13. Before that, the film will be available on the Disney Movies Anywhere and for digital download on September 2.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

Vinnie Jones (“Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels”) has joined the cast of director Matthew Vaughn’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service” sequel.

Jones let his casting known via his Twitter:

While Jones’ role hasn’t been disclosed, his picture with Julianne Moore could suggest an antagonistic role, considering Moore’s character was rumored as the film’s villain earlier this year.

Like the original, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” features a script by Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman, with Vaughn back to direct. The film is slated for release on June 16, 2017.

SUICIDE SQUAD

Following in the footsteps of the newly-unveiled “Suicide Squad”-themed Converse sneakers, Hot Topic has rolled out its “Suicide Squad” fashion collection.

Debuting July 22, the line — heavy on Harley and The Joker — has sweaters, tank tops, dresses, skinny jeans, boxer shorts, a trench coat and more (including a black-and-silver “Puddin” choker).

Prices range from $10.32 (for the choker) to $89.90 (for the trench coat). The collection can be preordered from the Hot Topic website.

Take a look at a few samples from the “Suicide Squad” fashion line below:

PREACHER

After only five episodes, AMC has renewed “Preacher” for an extended, 13-episode second season.

The first season has performed solidly on AMC, as the #2 series on the cable channel with an average of 3.3 million viewers per episode in Nielsen live plus 3 ratings.

On the series’ renewal, AMC president Charlie Collier said, “‘Preacher’ is a special television program and we’re eager to share with fans the rest of this wild first season and, now, an expanded second season…What Sam [Catlin], Seth [Rogen], Evan [Goldberg] and the entire creative team have achieved in bringing Garth Ennis’ graphic novel to the screen is extraordinary. We look forward to more time with these unforgettable characters be it in Heaven, Hell, Texas or beyond.”

Additionally, AMC is set to air a “Preacher” catch-up marathon that will show the first five episodes of the series, starting at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday, June 30.
