COMIC REEL: Robbie Compares “Suicide Squad” To “Dark Knight”; New “Fantastic Four” Details Revealed

SUICIDE SQUAD

In an interview with MTV News, Margot Robbie opened up about her audition process for the role of Harley Quinn — or rather her lack of one.

“I actually got offered this one, I didn’t audition, which is a real step up as an actor when you can get offered things,” said Robbie.”[Will Smith and I] didn’t have to do chemistry reads or anything like that , and then I already knew, vaguely knew Jared Leto, who’s playing the Joker.”

Robbie also discussed the film’s tone. “I think on a scale of like, ‘Dark Knight’ is here and ‘Avengers’ is here, I think it’s more on the ‘Dark Knight’ side of things.” You can see the interview clip below.

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

ABC has revealed the first of a number of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” posters created to tie in with the show’s upcoming episodes. The first one comes from artist Gabriele Dell’Otto, the co-creator of Daisy Johnson. Now that Skye has been revealed as Johnson, EP Jeffrey Bell says that factored into the decision to get art from Dell’Otto.

“[T]hat’s 100% why we chose him,” Bell told Entertainment Weekly. “And other aspects of [the poster] involve Coulson’s relationship to her, and also sort of hinting at what you also saw hinted at in episode ten, which is Raina ain’t quite the same as we saw her last time. And that will be really interesting, to see how people react to that. We’re really excited about the actress, Ruth Negga, and where we’re taking the character, and so the poster hints at that as well.” You can check out the poster below.

ARROW

Deadline has reported that the CW is developing a third live action series set in the “Arrow”-verse. The “Arrow” and “Flash” spinoff would most likely star Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom on “Arrow”), Victor Garber (Martin Stein, one-half of Firestorm on “The Flash”), Wentworth Miller (the villainous Leonard Snart/Captain Cold on “The Flash”) and Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/Canary on “Arrow”). “Arrow” executive producers Marc Guggenheim, Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg are heading up this project. Three additional DC heroes that have yet to appear in the “Arrow”-verse are expected to join the potential series.

FANTASTIC FOUR

Empire Magazine also has an in-depth interview with “FF” director Josh Trank where he talks a bit about his film’s tone and version of the main cast.

“The original two films to me are very similar to a lot of recent movies that have come out, in terms of that kind of cartoonish,” said Trank. “It’s just not something that me and [writer] Simon [Kinberg] are interested in as storytellers… There’s the opportunity to make something that is challenging and tragic and dramatic. The opportunity is right there in the material. We’d rather steer it in that direction as opposed to just embracing a tone that comes right off the page.”

Trank spoke about his version of the Storm family, which includes siblings played by Michael B. Jordan and Kate Mara. “I have mixed family,” said Trank. “When I go home for Christmas, you’ll see white people and black people. That’s normal to me. I wanted a Storm family that represented 21st century families.”

On Thing and Mr. Fantastic’s relationship: “Ben is supposed to be a smaller guy in terms of height,” said Trank. “That idea of Ben being Reeds best friend in the archetypical way, you want that character to have warmth and strength, qualities Jamie [Bell} has.”

ComicBookMovie has also transcribed some of Empire’s interview with Miles Teller, the man playing Reed Richards. “It was good talking with our advisors on set, whether it’s the quantum physics stuff or biomechanics,” said Teller. “I always want to know enough about the stuff before I say it. But I’m on layman’s terms with the science. I’m a layman’s Reed Richards!… If he’s this gummy guy slinging around, it looks ridiculous. What does that feel like for a young guy, to have no control over his body?”
