COMIC REEL: “X-Men’s” Shipp Talks Storm’s First Brush With Apocalypse; Mystery Character Spotted On “Flash” Set

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

Collider has posted their set visit interview with Alexandra Shipp wherein she goes into Storm’s role as one of Apocalypse’s Horsemen as well as her role in the larger film. Shipp detailed the scene wherein she meets Apocalypse for the first time:

“Which is the first, kind of my first opening scene, is you see me in Cairo, and he’s speaking whatever ancient language because he’s just woken up and I’m speaking Arabic,” said Shipp. “I’m trying to communicate with him, and then he has this moment where he figures out where he is, what’s happened, what date it is, and he … Apocalypse doesn’t need to say much. All he has to do is just be like, ‘I’m here, I’m what you’ve been looking for.’ And you just feel it right in your gut, and you’re like, ‘Right, you are exactly what I’ve been looking for. You are exactly what I need right now.’ I think that he can see that, and he could also see the power. I feel like when you’re the most powerful, you’re also the most self-conscious about it.”

SANDMAN

Joseph Gordon-Levitt announced over the weekend that he has stepped away from the feature film adaptation of “Sandman.”

“Sandman” creator Neil Gaiman responded to the news saying that his respect for Gordon-Levitt is “undiminished” and he wishes to work with him in the future.

SUICIDE SQUAD

Harley Quinn makes her live-action debut in August’s “Suicide Squad,” and Margot Robbie’s version of the character bears more resemblance to how the character’s been portrayed recently than how she looked when she debuted over 20 years ago. But, as Robbie told Hello Giggles, they did try out the jester suit — as well as many, many other alternates.

“Oh, we tried on every variation of the costume,” said Robbie. “I cannot emphasis enough how many outfits, and how many variations of the Harley Quinn costume we tried. We tried the court jester costume, we tried the corset and skirt, we tried leather pants, we tried literally every type of costume possible for her. I really love where we ended up. And who knows, maybe in the sequels we’ll go with the court jester one. I think there’s a world of possibilities.”

THE WALKING DEAD

You can read a recap of last night’s “Walking Dead” episode right here, and you can see a sneak preview and trailer for next week’s ep below.

ComicBook.com spoke with Michael Cudlitz about the end of Abraham and Rosita’s relationship as seen in last night’s episode.

“I don’t know what they left in there but I think she forged him into that. I don’t mean to blame her, obviously he’s the one who f—ed up in the sense of, ‘Is it f—ed up to fall in love with someone else?’ You know?” said Cudlitz. “I don’t know. When you’re in a world where everything has been rebuilt or they’re trying to rebuild and you’re not a character who lies and you are a character who would rather not hurt somebody, if you fall in love with somebody, how do you best do that? I don’t think Abraham is equipped to handle that in any other way other than to be honest about it. I think he’s processing it and he knows that he has to leave and he’s come to the conclusion that he has to leave and he’s like, ‘Well, I’m gonna leave. It’s gonna be easy.’ And she’s like, ‘Why? Why? Why?’ She’s pushing for the why. He doesn’t really have the words to do it in a soft gentle way in that moment but it certainly pains him to do it. I think he’s much more used to dealing with men. It’s just the way it is is the way it is. He’s not good at doing that, apparently. I’m sure the character is gonna get some blow back and I’m gonna get some blow back because people aren’t gonna be happy about that but that’s life. I don’t think he is equipped to handle it in any other way.”
