COMIC REEL: Stone, Williams Address Spider-Rumors; “Agent Carter” Gets Expanded Second Season

SPIDER-MAN

In a sit down with MTV, Emma Stone shared her reaction to Marvel’s new iteration of Gwen Stacy, which re-imagines the character as a web-slinging hero.

“I don’t know,” said Stone at the top of the interview. “I know nothing about [plans for a ‘Spider-Gwen’ movie], but I have read ‘Spider-Gwen.’ That’s all I know. I think a lot of pieces would have to come together [for that to happen].”

You can check out the interview, including Bradley Cooper’s befuddlement over the name Spider-Gwen, below.

In an interview with Flicks and the City, “Walking Dead” actor Tyler James Williams discussed superhero films and the ones he’d be interested in playing. He kept a bit quiet about who he’d like to play, noting that “things are “up in the air.” When asked about Miles Morales, Williams expressed interest in the character.

“I kind of followed the Miles Morales character quite a bit — my brother really did, so he kind of suggested if it goes that way it could work,” said Williams. “And I’m open to the idea, I am. I’m not, like, starting campaigns or anything for it because I trust Marvel. I’ve read for them before, so I trust what their decisions will be. But yeah, I’d love to do it. I would absolutely love to do it. I think there are a few names in the hat that absolutely do make sense. Kind of who is the best for it. I’d be stoked to do it.”

AGENT CARTER

During an appearance at Houston’s Comicpalooza, Hayley Atwell revealed that the second season of “Agent Carter” will consist of ten episodes.

“I also think the show runners really want to move it forward,” said Atwell in the report over at Digital Spy. “So it’s going to be set in LA and with 10 episodes it’s going to be a very glamorous, dark world of 1940s Los Angeles.”

Atwell also talked a bit about where Peggy will be emotionally in the upcoming season. “What was very exciting is, in a second season she’s grieved over Steve and she’s now about to embark on a new adventure in her life. So she’s in a much better place, so in terms of where she is it’s going to be a lot lighter for her, there’s going to be more humor to her and more warmth. She’s not struggling so much with her identity.”

Returns to ABC in 2016

ANT-MAN

Empire Magazine has new photos from “Ant-Man.”

ARROW

Flickering Myth has an interview with Willa Holland, who plays Thea Queen on “Arrow,” where she discusses the show’s big, unrealized plans for Harley Quinn.

“We had big plans for Harley,” said Holland, referencing the character’s brief cameo in season two. “But, I guess something came down from DC execs that told us to shut it down. I mean we had that tease with the pigtails and the ARGUS outfit but, we’ll never see it. We would love to Harley in ‘Arrow’ but it will never happen.” It’s plausible that DC “shut it down” because of their big screen plans for Harley; she’ll be played by Margot Robbie in next year’s “Suicide Squad” feature film.

Returns this Fall on the CW

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Variety has a new report on “Avengers: Age of Ultron’s” impressive overseas run, specifically it’s performance in China. The film has so far earned $210 million in the country, bringing its global haul to just under $1.3 billion — making it the third highest grossing superhero film after the first “Avengers” film and “Iron Man 3.”

In theaters now

DEADPOOL

ComicBookMovie has a scan of a couple pages of this month’s “Empire Magazine,” including a double page spread featuring Ryan Ryenolds’ Deadpool on the set of his feature film.

FANTASTIC FOUR

Following a report from Superhero News that posited that “Kingsman” director Matthew Vaughn was brought on to direct the April reshoots of “Fantastic Four,” “FF” director Josh Trank responded to the allegations on Twitter.

Opens August 7

SHAZAM

While promoting his upcoming film “San Andreas,” Dwayne Johnson talked a bit about “Shazam’s” release date — the upcoming DC Comics film wherein he will play villain Black Adam. So far the film has a tentative release date for 2019 — but Johnson thinks it will be out sooner than that.

“No, I don’t think it is going to be that far away,” said Johnson. “It’s going to be earlier than that. I don’t think 2019.”

Opens April 5, 2019

STATIC SHOCK

Additionally in his Flicks and the City interview, Tyler James Williams casually mentioned that the live-action adaptation of “Static Shock” is moving forward with Jaden Smith in the lead role.

When asked about the state of black superheroes in feature films, specifically Marvel’s Miles Morales, Williams said, “I don’t know…What you’re taking about. But yeah no, it’s great to see ‘Static Shock’ is happening with Jaden.”

While it’s possible that Williams knows something that has not yet been officially announced, it’s also entirely plausible that he’s just relaying rumors that have previously been discussed.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

ComicBookMovie has a scan from Empire magazine of some concept art from “X-Men: Apocalypse” that features small illustrations of Cyclops and Jean Grey in costume.
