COMIC REEL: Anthony Mackie Calls Falcon Cap's Equal; Spider-Man Spotted On "Civil War" Set


During their "Civil War" set visit, Entertainment Weekly spotted an actor wearing the classic Spider-Man costume. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige didn't confirm Spidey's involvement in the film ("Listen, if there was a cosplayer running around that set when you were there, I don't know what to tell you") but Robert Downey Jr. didn't exercise that level of caution.

"[Don] Cheadle and I are just going, 'Wow, dude, look at this.' We're now like the old guard, and our storyline carries real weight just because of our history in the [canon]," said Downey. "But we're also looking around like, 'Who thought that Falcon and Black Panther and Ant-Man and now Spider-Man...?' I mean it's like wow, this thing is just crazy."

Feige did talk a bit about Daniel Bruhl's Baron Zemo, saying "his character is very much a product of the Cinematic Universe and all that has occurred within that universe up to this point."

He also spoke about the mystery character Martin Freeman is playing: "He's under the cloak of secrecy. There are a lot of amazing actors in this movie. Some of them play larger roles than others. And in some cases there are some you will meet ever so briefly in this film and then will be expanded upon in future films. He falls into that latter category."

RDJ also talked with EW about Tony Stark's role in the film. "It didn't bother me at all [to be the antagonist]," said Downey. "I've always thought of it in some ways that Tony is the antagonist to himself in his own story, so this isn't a problem. This guy understands problems 'cause he is a problem. And he tends to create problems... I wholeheartedly agree with what he does in this... Which is, by the way, more than I could say for some of the other movies."

EW also talked to Scarlett Johansson about her part in the film. "[Black Widow] understands where everyone is coming from. And none of it really matters to her, you know? There's a bigger problem at hand and she's, I think, strangely, kind of the mediator. Which is not exactly how you would imagine her to be. But I think she really does see both sides of the coin and I think her strength is that she's not personally involved."

All these EW articles also came with a batch of new stills from the movie.

The CW has released a promo for "Flash's" midseason finale, "Running to Stand Still."

YVR Shoots has a few pics from "Flash's" Vancouver set, which reveal that there's another costumed character on the way -- although his identity has yet to be revealed. The images feature a mystery man -- most likely a meta-human given the get-up -- going up against the CCPD. You can even make out Joe West's unmarked police vehicle and actor Jesse L. Martin's stunt double in a few of the pictures.


Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg recently told The Hollywood Reporter that there are actually legal roadblocks standing in the way of Supergirl and Flash or Arrow crossing paths.

"There's always those late nights, delirious, semi-high on pizza where you're like, 'You know what would be really cool? If ...,' " said Kreisberg. "But right now there is no legitimate actual plan to bring ['The Flash's'] Cisco [Carlos Valdes] onto 'Supergirl' or to bring ['Supergirl's'] Winn [Jeremy Jordan] onto 'Legends [of Tomorrow].' First of all, we don't even know if we could, legally. And quite frankly, just making the 'Arrow'-verse which is what we call 'Legends,' 'Flash' and 'Arrow' work and then making 'Supergirl' work, it's enough of a challenge without having to add a fourth player."
