And speaking of unfiltered, former Fox exec turned "X-Men" producer Hutch Parker shared his thoughts on leaked Comic-Con footage with Super Hero Hype:

"I'd say it really isn't intended to be leaked. It's really intended to excite a core. From a marketing perspective, what they want is to share it with the most discerning eyes that are out there for this material. It's the biggest and probably most intense focus group any of us ever have," he explained.

Opens May 27, 2016


Head of Marvel TV Jeph Loeb talked with Entertainment Tonight and shared his thoughts on crossovers amongst all the studio's TV franchises -- even some ABC/Netflix crosspolination. "There is nothing that could make it not happen. It's just a question of when it would happen and when it's appropriate," he said.

"We've made no bones about it. It is the same world. We don't want it to be an Easter egg farm. But we've acknowledged in Daredevil that there was an incident, as we like to refer to it, which is what happened in the first Avengers movie. We've made mentions of Iron Man. We've made mentions of Captain America. So once that's happens, you've opened the door.

"I can tell you Clark Gregg would pay for his own airfare, his own hotel, just to walk through the set. And the set, fortunately, for the Netflix shows is the city of New York. Our feeling is right now, the shows that we're doing on Netflix are so young and so new, we need people to get to know Matt, and Foggy, and Karen, and we need people to get to know Jessica [Jones] and Trish [Walker, aka Hellcat] and Luke [Cage]. Once they're invested in that, it really is the same thing that we did with S.H.I.E.L.D. Trust us. Get to know the characters, invest in them, and then...There may be some."


In a spoiler-filled discussion of the film, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige spoke on the future of The Wasp with Yahoo. "It's going to be certainly a part of our Phase 3," he said. "It is going to be a very important moment, and - spoiler alert! - we see that suit for the first time, and her father now is finally giving it to her and realizes that he can't hold her back from what is essentially her destiny."

In theaters now.


Actor Martin Freeman dropped some hints as to his mystery role in the upcoming sequel to international film site BadTaste.It

"We can say he works for the American government," the actor explained. "He works in conjunction with the superheroes, and certain agencies that help to tame the superheroes' power, I suppose. So you're not quite sure which side he's on. It looks a little bit like he's playing one game when actually he's playing another. It's the kind of character I like because it's ambiguous and because you don't know whether he's good or bad. I like that area that isn't black or white. I like the grays, because I think there's just more fun to be had in not playing one obvious line, I like that."

In theaters May 6, 2016.


As CBR noted earlier today, reports are in that comic character Lucy Lane will be joining the CBS superhero drama as an ex-flame of Jimmy Olsen's.
