COMIC REEL: “Supergirl’s” Brooks Teases Jimmy Olsen’s Signal Watch; “Spider-Man” Director Talks “Ultimate” Influence

SUPERGIRL

While talking to ComicBook.com at NYCC, Mehcad Brooks revealed that his Jimmy Olsen will have one recognizable souvenir from his Metropolis days hanging out with Superman.

“Yeah, it’s a special watch,” he said when asked about the large watch he has been seen wearing in the promos. Odds are it’s Jimmy Olsen’s Signal Watch. He added: “You know what kind of watch it is, right? Yeah, you do.”

The Hollywood Reporter learned that Chris Vance will play the Kryptonian villain Non in the show.

Premieres October 26 on CBS

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

Marvel has released promotional stills for the fourth episode of “S.H.I.E.L.D.’s” third season, which is titled “Devils You Know.”

ARROW

Katrina Law, who plays Nyssa al Ghul, spoke to Superhero Hype about the return of Caity Lotz’s character, Sara Lance.

“Yes… I do think the fans are going to be really surprised by the course of events and what happens and what goes down in the resurrection of Sara and also Nyssa’s reaction,” said Law. “I think it’s a great episode, and when they do finally explain everything and show everything, I think people are going to come to a full understanding why certain characters went in the directions they went into. Again, I thought it was really brilliant on the writer’s part, the storylines where they’re going.”

Neal McDonough also revealed during a NYCC interview with ComicBook.com that his character Damien Darhk will appear on “The Flash” and “Legends of Tomorrow” as well.

The CW has released a featurette with an interview of Willa Holland discussing her character’s growth over the course of the series.

THE FLASH

Teddy Sears spoke to MTV about Jay Garrick’s role in “The Flash” season two.

“Jay Garrick is purely good,” Sears told MTV in regard to Garrick’s moral alignment. “Yeah, he’s just a victim of having his speed stolen by Zoom, which we’ll get into in episode two, and finds himself here on Earth One, and is looking to get home. But by and large is looking to defeat his arch-nemesis Zoom, which he simply cannot do without Barry’s help.”

He added: “I think one thing Jay brings to Barry is a sense of, ‘You need to discipline yourself. You need to focus what you can do. You need to hone these things you can do. And I’m here to teach you things you didn’t know you could do.’ Things that Barry doesn’t even realize he could do, or was capable of doing here on Earth One.”

LUKE CAGE

While talking with ComicBook.com at NYCC, Mike Colter revealed when exactly “Luke Cage” takes place in relation to “Jessica Jones.”

“I can tell you what they’ve allowed me to, which is basically, ‘Luke Cage’ will take place a few months after ‘Jessica Jones,'” he explained. “So in real time, if you watch ‘Jessica Jones,’ you’ll find [at the end] Luke Cage uptown in Harlem, working, trying to make ends meet. Luke Cage really hasn’t figured out what he’s doing. He’s tending bar, he’s bouncing around. And for good reason, he’s a fugitive, he has some skeletons in his closet.”

Debuts on Netflix in 2016

SPIDER-MAN

Den Of Geek chatted with “Spider-Man” director Jon Watts about his favorite Spidey comics.

“Oh, I love that. ‘Ultimate [Spider-Man]’ is great. I love ‘Ultimate.’ We have the freedom to pull from anything, but I really like what [Brian Michael] Bendis did. A lot. That felt like… that was Peter Parker back in high school. And, spending as much time with his high school problems as it did with his superhero problems, which I think is really a lot of fun.

“There’s also some really funny comics stuff, like, the ‘Archies.’ I don’t know if you’ve ever seen the ‘Spider-Man Loves Mary-Jane’ series, but they have this really great anime-style illustration, and it’s all just about Peter Parker’s relationships. It’s like the soap opera of Peter Parker in high school. Those are really funny, too. I’m just sitting around reading comic books all day — it’s a pretty great job.”
