COMIC REEL: T.J. Miller Reveals “Deadpool” Role; “Lucifer” Actor Gets Recast

DEADPOOL

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

You can read a recap of last night’s episode, “One of Us,” over on Spinoff. You can check out a promo for next week’s episode, “Love in the Time of Hydra,” below.

Next week’s episode looks to put Bobbi Morse in a hard place. Actress Adrianne Palicki talked to CBR about her character’s big secret.

“I do know what the secret is! They kept it from me for a very long time,” said Palicki. “Every episode I’d be like, ‘What is it?! I need to know for my character.’ I found out a few episodes back, and everyone will find out in the upcoming episodes what’s going on… I understand in certain ways, [not knowing] can actually help. Like, the writers put it to me like this — not that I’m comparing myself to Ward, because, you know, but they didn’t tell Brett for the longest time that he was Hydra. That actually gave him more motivation to be a good guy, and that actually was a bigger fall for him when everybody found out. I understood that it was important to keep it at bay and to just know that Bobbi thinks that she’s doing the right thing.”

DAREDEVIL

“Daredevil” has released a new teaser via the show’s Twitter account. The quick motion poster features Matt Murdock both in and out of his makeshift vigilante costume, all set to the sound of a pulsating heartbeat.

MCU Exchange has reported on an interview (via Comics Continuum) that features Marvel CCO Joe Quesada, Marvel head of TV Jeph Loeb and “Daredevil” showrunner Steven S. DeKnight talking about the hero’s uniform.

“We had to come up with a logic for it,” said Quesada. “It was a delicate balance, because the stories we’re telling are so real-world. Matt starts out in a homemade outfit that develops slowly. As he starts getting the crap kicked out of him on the streets, he adds padding little by little.”

“We couldn’t just come out of the box with a guy running around in a red devil costume,” said Loeb. “We needed to be able to make sure that it looked not like a costume, but a uniform.”

“He always wore a black mask that was tied in the back,” said DeKnight. “We went through a lot of different versions and did a lot of R&D before settling on something. If you watch very closely, you’ll see the outfit evolve subtly into what we call the black ninja suit. The mask changes. He starts wearing protective pads. Eventually it morphs into the classic suit, because he wouldn’t be Daredevil without it. Getting there is part of the fun. The idea was to back the story up to the point before Matt is Daredevil. Then we could take him to a place where some version of the red suit works in a grounded world. The solution is very exciting and makes complete sense.”

Premieres on April 10 on Netflix

FANTASTIC FOUR

In a recent interview with ScreenCrush, Miles Teller revealed that the suits we’ve seen in trailers will not be the Fantastic Four’s final suits.

“These are the beta versions of the costumes, which is great,” said Teller. “It would be very odd if the Fantastic Four didn’t don the traditional costumes. You’ve got to. There is some servicing there. You’ve got to give that to the fans. That’s what it’s all about.”

Opens August 7

THE FLASH

You can check out a recap of last night’s pivotal “Flash” episode over on Spinoff. You can get a hint of what’s going to happen next week by checking out the trailer for “Rogue Time.”

Variety has reported on a press event held following last night’s big revelations, so spoilers for everyone who isn’t caught up.

IZOMBIE

The CW has released a trailer for next week’s episode, “Brother, Can You Spare A Brain?”

CBR spoke with actor David Anders about his villainous role on “iZombie,” specifically how his zombie compares to series lead Liv.

“Blaine has less of a moral compass,” said Anders. “Liv is pretty uncertain about how to procure and get these brains she needs to eat. The zombies on ‘iZombie’ need to eat brains to maintain their humanity, or else they become ‘The Walking Dead’ variety. Liv realizes it, so she works in a morgue where there’s a bountiful amount of brains. Blaine goes about it in other ways.”

Premieres March 17 on the CW

LUCIFER

The Hollywood Reporter has noticed that a casting change has been made to “Lucifer” ahead of the pilot’s production. Lesley-Ann Brandt (“The Librarians”) will replace Lina Esco in the role of Maze, Lucifer’s demonic best friend.
