COMIC REEL: Suicide Squad “Definitely” Returning To “Arrow”; “Avengers” Trinity Appears In New Still

ARROW

TV Line has posted a few tidbits about “Arrow” in their Winter TV Spoilers 2015 feature. Actor David Ramsay hinted that the H.I.V.E. storyline will continue and EP Andrew Kreisberg hinted at the return of another group. “We’re definitely going to bring back the Suicide Squad,” he told TV Line. The appearance will mark the group’s first small screen appearance since the announcement of their feature film starring Will Smith, Tom Hardy and Jared Leto.

Returns January 21 on the CW

AGENT CARTER

The Hollywood Reporter has an interesting interview wherein “Arrow” showrunner Marc Guggenheim chats with “Agent Carter” showrunners Tara Butters — Guggenheim’s wife — and Michele Fazekas. The exchange reveals a number of things about the Marvel drama, which premieres tonight.

On the possibility of a second season:

Guggenheim: Because Tara and I have been married 10 years now and that entitles me to a larger share of her earnings, I feel compelled to ask you guys to make clear: This isn’t eight and done; there is still the potential for a second season, right?
Fazekas and Butters: Yes!

On other Marvel Comics characters popping up in the show:

Guggenheim: So are there other characters from the Marvel cinematic universe that we might expect to see on your show?
Fazekas: Yes.
Guggenheim: Do you want to say who they are?
Fazekas: I cannot.

On how an “Agent Carter”/”Arrow” crossover would shake out:

Butters: It would be interesting to see Haley Atwell and Stephen Amell in scenes together because in some ways she would be his most formidable foil.
Guggenheim: [Skeptically] Hmm, that’s interesting! Why would you say that?
Butters: Because I feel like he wouldn’t know what to do with her. And she would not have any time for his broodiness.
Guggenheim: So no romance?
Fazekas: Look, she was dating Captain America! I don’t think he has the pecs for it!

The series has also posted another retro “etiquette lesson” promo on its Facebook page, this time focusing on proper workplace behavior.

Ahead of tonight’s premiere, Marvel has also released new cast photos for the series.

If you’re interested in a behind-the-scenes look at the series, then you’re in luck. ABC has posted a new featurette consisting of interviews with executive producers Fazekas and Butters, as well as series stars Hayley Atwell and Dominic Cooper.

Comic Book Movie has posted a ton of new stills from the second half of tonight’s premiere — an episode titled “Bridge & Tunnel.” You can check out a handful of images below and the rest over on CBM.

GOTHAM

You can check out a recap of last night’s midseason premiere — titled “Rogues’ Gallery” — over on Spinoff.

Following last night’s episode, Fox aired a promo for next week’s installment — “What the Little Bird Told Him.”

The Hollywood Reporter has an interview with showrunner Bruno Heller where he discusses what lies ahead for the citizens of Gotham.

“You’re going to see Nygma take a giant step forward into becoming the man he becomes,” said Heller. “You’re going to see Fish Mooney placed in a situation where it’s almost unimaginable how she’ll get out of it. Her relationship with Butch and Penguin are going to be pushed to the limit. Selina Kyle’s going to do something incredibly shocking — also, so’s Fish, come to that. One of the things about the second half of the season is that all the story we’ve set up so far comes to fruition. Some people come to an end, other people are triumphant. Gordon is… no, I can’t go there. I almost told you the story, and I can’t. But I guarantee that, if you liked the first half of the season, you’ll love the second half.”
