The cosplayer, Jovanie Seghers-Narvaez, also commented on the video, saying, "My comment will probably get lost in this sea of comments but that is me, I'm the girl in video! And believe me it was the greatest thing that's ever happened to me! Hayley and James were both so delightful and it was so great of them to come say hi." In a later comment she assures fans that she "TOTALLY lost it afterwards. I don't know how I managed to stay coherent during our conversation, but my boyfriend has been a saint to put up with me for the last 4 days haha!"

ANT-MAN

In a new interview with Fandango, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed how Anthony Mackie's Falcon came to be a part of "Ant-Man."

"That came about in a really natural way, and it was actually the idea of Paul Rudd and Adam McKay," said Feige. "Peyton Reed had pointed out that in heist films, there's usually a preheist. There's usually a little adventure mission the characters need to go on before the primary heist -- to get a tool, or get a device. It was Adam and Paul, not coincidentally, who had just seen the final version of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' last year -- and they said, 'Oh man, they should have to go to get something and encounter the Falcon --- wouldn't that be cool?' I said that would be cool, and not only that but I also told them we were introducing a whole new Avengers facility at the end of 'Age of Ultron.' So not only could they encounter the Falcon, but it would make sense if he had to go to what he believed was an old Stark facility and was unaware it had now become a major Avengers facility. It sort of naturally spiraled like that."

Feige said that despite Ant-Man breaking into an Avengers compound, they never considered including more Avengers. "Not really, no," he said. "That's part of the fun of the shared universe, though. Filmmakers see a film and they're like, 'Oh I'd love to do something with this character!'... If you were to freeze the frame when Ant-Man is flying over the Avengers facility, there are new landmarks and buildings in that frame that you won't see until 'Captain America: Civil War.'"

Those aren't the only Easter eggs in the film, as director Peyton Reed revealed in an interview with Collider.

"I think anytime you're in Hank Pym's beautiful, Victorian house in San Francisco, you want to look around the room," said Reed. "You might notice certain details that sort of talk abut his history and his experimentation with the Pym particle. There might some miniaturized objects all around the room."

Reed also said to look out for newspapers. "When newspapers appear on screen, there are a couple newspapers that appear. There's a main thing when I do an insert of a newspaper that you want to look at for a story. There also might be some other things in the margins of that newspaper that are interesting."

There's also an egg hidden towards the end of the film. "There's an event that happens to Scott Lang in the third act of the movie," said Reed. "He goes into a place that's been unseen in any motion picture ever before, and when he goes into that place -- I don't think Scott Lang sees it, but if you're sharp, if you're a keen, sharp audience member you might see something or someone in that environment."

A number of new clips have been released from "Ant-Man," including one wherein Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) crashes his daughter's party.

There's also an action-packed clip featuring an Ant-Man break-in and one focusing on Corey Stoll's Darren Cross.

Another viral video featuring Scott Lang breaking into a place has been released, playing up the Ant-Man's criminal past.

ARROW

During a sit-down with IGN at SDCC, "Arrow" stars Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards and EP Wendy Mericle discussed whether there's a chance Matt Ryan's John Constantine will appear on the show now that his series has been canceled by NBC.

"We really want to do it," said Mericle. "It's something we've been talking to DC [Entertainment] about, and it's just a question of some political things, but also the actor's schedule. We're trying to work it out, but we don't know 100 percent if it's going to happen."

"Fingers crossed" Amell interjected.

"But we're really optimistic and we would love to have him" Mericle concluded.

While speaking with MTV, Ezra Miller -- the upcoming big screen Flash -- revealed that he is not shying away from watching the CW series starring a version of the character he will be playing in "Justice League."

"I'm not avoiding it, I'm not avoiding it at all," said Miller. "I think it's awesome. Yeah, I think it's awesome. And come on, we're the Flash! It's parallel universes! Grant Gustin is the Flash and I'm the Flash, don't you see? It's the event horizon, we crossed it baby! Grant and I are chillin'. We're gonna have a race, it's gonna be dope. Like Jay Garrick and Barry Allen back in the day, it's gonna be dope."

Back on the small screen front, a sleuth on Instagram has discovered the identity of the man behind the mask of Flash's next villain. No, we don't know the character's name, but we now know that the bad guy will be played by former WWE wrestler Adam Copeland/Edge.
