A fan theory regarding the Joker's identity has emerged on Reddit, so possible spoilers ahead for those that don't even want to hear wild speculation.

The theory posits that shoulder injuries on the initial photo of Jared Leto's Joker match up with damage on the Robin costume glimpsed in the "Batman V Superman" trailer.


Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie attended Disney's D23 Expo and helped show off footage from "Civil War." You can watch some sound bites from Evans and Mackie's appearance below.

A number of other quotes from the duo's press appearance have popped up online, with Collider quoting Mackie on the film's familial tone.

"Nah, it's not MMA. We definitely have gloves on," said Mackie when asked if gloves will come off between former allies. "It's more a family dispute, and that's what so great about this movie and the characters and how they work together. It's more so when you have a sibling rivalry. The reason why people can relate to these characters so much, is because they can relate to what they're going through. Everybody's fought with one of their siblings or one of their friends and wanted to make up with them but couldn't figure out how to do it."

Evans also spoke about Cap's relationship with Falcon, and ComicBook.com has that quote. "You have to understand where Cap is coming from in the last movie. Falcon's the one guy that, having known the least in terms of history, he actually trusts the most," said Evans. "So coming into this movie there's a really nice kinship between these characters. So, they do a good job on picking up where they left off from the last movie."

You can watch Kevin Feige's D23 presentation, which includes his comments on "Doctor Strange" as well as part of Cumberbatch's video message to the audience.

ComicBook.com has a bit of information regarding Strange's suit, saying that it is similar to the comic suit, "cape and all." Concept art was also shown, as CB.com reported:

The D23 concept art showed Strange going to the far east, then being transported to multiple dimensions. Cars flying through the air in the city, Baron Mordo fighting him, and the full on red caped look straight out of the comics. There was even a quick 1-second CGI shot of Strange shooting magic bolts to cap it all off. The concept art drew a huge reaction from the crowd.

ComicBook.com has interviews with series leads Kim Dickens and Cliff Curtis.

Dickens spoke about her character Madison, saying, "She is a mother of two teenagers. She lost her husband about six years prior to where we start and she's a high school guidance counselor in East L.A.. She's a very strong, single mother. Adaptable and pragmatic. She's not without her flaws. She has a drug addicted teenager and one seventeen/eighteen over-achiever teenager. She's falling in love with Travis who has a teenager, as well. It's very modern. She has her obstacles and challenges and obviously the apocalypse is impending upon them."

Curtis gave his thoughts about the show's premiere. "I kind of watched it at Comic Con," said Curtis. "I'm really happy with it... It's a very generous crowd. It's Comic-Con fans that are like generations coming up. You see the whole family together. It was fun, I enjoyed it."
