COMIC REEL: Changes Ahead For “SHIELD’s” Agent May; Robbie Shows Off Harley’s Tattoo Parlour Sign

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

A TV Guide interview with Ming-Na Wen and Blair Underwood reveals that Agent Melinda May and her ex-husband Andrew might have a different roles to play in “S.H.I.E.L.D.’s” third season. Notably, it’s hinted that Agent May could leave S.H.I.E.L.D. to focus on her personal life.

“In any situation when someone is so devoted to their work as May was, but then realizing over the last two years that S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t really what she dedicated her life to,” said Wen. “That there was definitely a lot of corruption to S.H.I.E.L.D., as well as uncertainty now with the Inhumans being brought in by Coulson. It’s going to be figuring out her final decision in Season 3 and I think Andrew will probably play a part in it.”

May’s ex-husband Andrew, played by Blair Underwood, will have a new, more involved role in the show. “What’s interesting is now May is disgruntled by S.H.I.E.L.D., but last season when May came to Andrew with the idea of coming back to S.H.I.E.L.D., he was disgruntled and had left the agency,” said Underwood. “But now he’s back working with them and the Inhumans.”

Returns September 29 on ABC

ARROW

Collider has an interview with “Arrow” producer Wendy Mericle wherein she discusses the show’s upcoming fourth season, specifically Oliver Queen’s relationship with the rest of Team Arrow.

“Dig has a huge bone to pick with Oliver when they see each other again, at the top of Season 4,” said Mericle. “We’re gonna work that out. It’s not gonna be easy. With what happened to Dig’s family, it’s really tough to buy that back, and Oliver is not gonna to be able to. Obviously, they can’t be mad at each other forever, or what are we doing? But also, in the intervening months while Oliver has been gone, Dig has, more or less, been leading the team. It’s a little bit more democratic, Speedy and Black Canary are both super bad-ass and kicking butt. He’s not happy, when he and Oliver meet again. It’s not an open-armed, ‘Hey, buddy, all is forgiven,’ reunion.”

Returns October 7 on the CW

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

While telling a “BvS” bathroom story to Vulture, Michael Shannon inadvertently revealed that General Zod will have changed a bit for his presumed posthumous role in the sequel.

“I was in my costume, and I couldn’t use my fingers because in the sequel I have flippers instead of hands,” he recalled. “So I had these wax flippers on my fingers, and I couldn’t open the door, and I could hear Zack [Snyder, the director] being like, ‘Where’s Shannon? Where the fuck is he?’ and the whole crew was standing around. I was like, knocking on the door with my flippers, ‘Let me out of here!'” He was later rescued by “the craft-service guy, who doesn’t have the best craft service… He was actually paying attention to what was going on. He came over and he opened the door for me. Otherwise, I would have gotten fired.”

Opens March 25, 2016

…and a featurette focusing on the show’s characters.

Premieres August 23 on AMC

THE FIFTH BEATLE

The Tech Times has a look at the first five pages of the screenplay for the adaptation of the graphic novel “The Fifth Beatle.” The preview comes with an interview with graphic novel writer Vivek Tiwary

“I don’t see it as adapting the graphic novel into a film,” said Tiwary. “Really, we’re expanding the graphic novel. The film gives us an opportunity to delve deeper into certain issues — two in particular. The story of Pete Best, the band’s first drummer, who Brian has to fire, is not really dealt with in the graphic novel. And Brian’s relationship with his father, while it’s touched on in the graphic novel, it’s a much bigger part of the film.”

THE FLASH

The Wrap has an interview with “Flash” addition Keiynan Lonsdale, who will play fan favorite — and potential Flash — Wally West on the show. The actor revealed all he knew about his character, which wasn’t much.

“Everything has been kept under wraps, even to me, which I think is really cool,” said Lonsdale. “Since watching the show I’ve become a massive fan, so when I found out I got the part, one part of me was like ‘oh but now I’m going to know all the spoilers and stuff, I don’t want to know that!’ [laughs] But yeah, they haven’t even told me the exact details yet in terms of the relation to Iris or how exactly Wally is going to be connected into the storyline and how he’ll weave through the different storylines, so I’m not really sure. But I’m sure I’ll find out soon. It’s going to be a hard secret to keep!”

Returns October 6 on the CW

GOTHAM

Variety has an interview with “Gotham’s” Emmy-nominated costume designer Lisa Padovani, who talks about how she creates the shows look.

“Even though it’s not a period piece, per se, it’s a concept piece, so everything is very particular,” said Padovani, who revealed that she creates the majority of “Gotham’s” costumes in-house. “It’s a problem for costume designers in TV because you’re at the mercy of whatever’s going on in fashion. That’s why I like to control my product.”

Additionally, TV Guide spoke with “Gotham” executive producer Danny Cannon spoke briefly about incoming boss villain, billionaire industrialist Theo Galavan (James Frain), and the role he’ll play in season two.

“He comes from a very wealthy family with ancient roots in the building and foundation of Gotham,” said Cannon. “It takes a while for us to understand why he came back to Gotham and what his plan is, but it’s an insidious one, obviously. He’s a little bit like the Great Gatsby and Dracula coming to town with money and influence and charm and trying to bend to Gotham to serve him.”

Theo also has connections to the “origins of a very famous DC villain,” hinted Cannon.

“This season is about how one man will unleash and empower the villains and make them understand that they are more powerful than the people fighting against them,” he continued. “They are the pioneers for Gotham. They are the ones who will change things because with chaos and destruction is the only way you can build. You can’t rebuild a city without first destroying it.”

Returns September 21 on Fox
