ANT-MAN

In a recent interview with InnerSpace, Evangeline Lilly revealed that she held off on signing her "Ant-Man" contract until she had the opportunity to meet with new director Peyton Reed.

"When Edgar [Wright] and Marvel decided to part ways, I was nervous and I kind of held off on signing my contract because I actually wanted to see what would happen," said Lilly. "And I met Peyton [Reed] and we spoke and I was convinced that I was going to do the project. And then actually doing it with him -- he has such impeccable taste. He's so collaborative, he's so much fun, he's so deep into the comic book world -- always has been, all his life -- and really knows the genre. I have no doubt that the film is going to be incredible. I think it's going to be one of Marvel's best."

ARROW

For fans anxious to find out the identity of Sara Lance's killer, Entertainment Weekly has some good news for you. "Arrow" EP Marc Guggenheim told EW that the mystery would be solved soon. "I've always maintained that yo''d find out the answer to who murdered Sara by the end of the year," said Guggenheim. "That said, I will say that the S.T.A.R. Labs team [from 'The Flash'] is going to end up providing a critical piece of information that cracks open the whole case, but that doesn't necessarily happen in [the upcoming crossover]."

Looking even further ahead, the Hollywood Reporter has an interview with "Arrow" EP Andrew Kreisberg where he teases an upcoming trilogy of episodes focused on the new Black Canary, Laurel Lance.

"[Laurel's] not as present in these [crossover] episodes, but that is because we've been building up to her appearance as the Black Canary," said Kreisberg. "We sort of said that Sara was the Canary, but Laurel is the Black Canary. Episodes 10, 11 and 12 are a three-part trilogy that are about her. And episode 13 I think I can spoil, is called 'Canaries.' For fans of Laurel and for fans of Katie [Cassidy], they're going to get more than their fill after the winter break."

CAPTAIN MARVEL

Emily Blunt now knows about all the Captain Marvel fans that have pegged her as Carol Danvers. The actress learned more about the role in an interview with ScreenCrush.

"I think, it's always for me, it's always about -- and now, more so -- what am I putting out there? What would be interesting for me and what would be interesting for people to see," said Blunt. "So, if it's an awesome part, it doesn't matter if it's a Marvel movie or a tiny movie, I'd be up for it." When she learned that the part would make her a hero for every "10-year-old girl out there right now," the actress seemed even more interested.

"Really? Then that's huge," she said. "That's huge. How awesome. I love this. No one has actually called me about it, so, we'll hold our breath."

CONSTANTINE

Deadline has reported that "Constantine" will stop production following the first season's thirteenth episode, which wraps up the series' initial commitment. This doesn't mean the show is canceled; it's still possible for "Constantine" to come back for a second season. The most recent episode, "Danse Vaudou," had a 38-percent increase over the previous week in the key 18-49 demographic, and it held on to 85-percent of "Grimm's" audience.

If she show keeps going, producer Daniel Cerone tweeted that Constantine lighting up in the most recent episode could be a tease to the famous "Dangerous Habits" storyline.

We told you John smokes on our show. How can we do Dangerous Habits if he didn't? Trust. Believe. #Constantine

THE FLASH

The extensive Hollywood Reporter interview with the producers behind "Flash" and "Arrow" contains new information about the upcoming crossover. Executive producer Kreisberg promised that an event on the "Flash" half of the event will pay off big time later on in "Arrow."

"There's a really big character, emotional moment for Oliver on 'The Flash' side; [something] that we set up last season and paid off in 'Flash,' and will pay off down the road on 'Arrow," said Kreisberg.

"It's like the bomb underneath the table," added EP Marc Guggenheim. "And I think part of the fun is waiting to see when Oliver is going to learn what the audience learns on 'Flash.'"

THE WALKING DEAD

AMC has released a promo for next week's midseason finale, titled "Coda."

As if there was any doubt about the midseason finale being a must-watch episode, io9 has singled out a quote from a TV Guide interview where actor Norman Reedus revealed that the events of the episode made him cry. For an hour. The marathon of tears transpired before the actor shot the scene. From TV Guide:

Reedus describes the hour's final moments as so devastating that they unleashed an intense wave of feelings before the cameras rolled. 'I sat on an apple box with my head between my legs and just balled for an hour,' he says. 'I really wanted not to tear up during [the scene] -- I wanted to be like I wasted every tear in my body before we started shooting -- so I just sat there and cried and cried and cried."

You can see the article over on Reedus' Facebook page.
