COMIC REEL: "Civil War" Brawl Details Emerge; "Jessica Jones" Showrunner Ready For More

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Entertainment Weekly spoke with Chadwick Boseman about his character, Black Panther, and the role he plays in the film.

"There definitely is a sort of tradition that he's torn between, in terms of how things were done in the past and how things need to happen now in this new world," Boseman tells EW. "I think there's perhaps a bit of a maverick there, and then there's also a need to live up to traditions and his father's legacy. And not even his father's legacy, but the entire nation of Wakanda. I think those are the things you will see."

EW also has a rundown of a fight scene they witnessed being shot while conducting interviews for their cover story.

While Black Widow gives an all-out thrashing to Ant-Man, Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch blast away at the sky - him with his trusty bow and arrows, her with her mystical red energy pulses. They're trying to knock some unseen threat out of the air. (It's hard to tell which visual effect they're imagining.)

It's definitely not Iron Man. He's flying low and locked onto another target: Captain America. Evans raises his shield, slings an upper cut through the air, and gets in one more hit against his invisible foe before he's almost taken out in real life.

The main camera is on a crane, and it swoops down on the battle scene - following Iron Man's descent - until it's right in Evans's face. The actor has to dive out of the way at the last second to avoid being clobbered.

After a few more takes, Evans comes over to the video screens to check out the shot, laughing at the fact that each one ends with an extreme close-up of his panicked face, dodging the camera. "I can't keep throwing punches when that's so close," he says. The Russos come up with a solution: Go ahead and drop back.

The shot will end with Iron Man knocking Captain America to his knees.

But he's not going to stay there.

ARROW

You can check out CBR's recap of last night's "Arrow" right here.

Following the episode, Variety spoke with producer Wendy Mericle about what's coming up in the middle of "Arrow's" fourth season and Oliver's decision to not tell Felicity about his son.

"It's definitely going to come to a head in the middle of the season. We can't tell you how that's gonna happen," said Mericle. "But obviously for the arc of Oliver and Felicity's relationship this season, the fact that he's keeping this from her ... true to what we've done on the show, if there's a secret somewhere, it's going to come out and it's going to have some serious consequences. We're really excited about how that's going to change things and it's really gonna raise the stakes and throw some wrenches into the works of their relationship -- which so far this season has been pretty smooth sailing. True to form, we're gonna really mine that. There'll be some fallout for both of them."

The CW has also released pics from "Arrow's" midseason finale, an episode titled "Dark Waters."

JESSICA JONES

While talking to Variety, "Jessica Jones" showrunner Melissa Rosenberg spoke about the possibility of a second season.

"I'd love that. Me, personally -- I'm ready to go," Rosenberg said "Marvel has a lot going on. So does Netflix. So I don't know if a second season fits into this schedule, when, whether or not we'll get one. I don't know any of that. I personally, I'm ready to jump in now. I've had some time off. I needed some time off! It was a really hard run... We're always mining that [comic book] series ['Alias'] as much as we can. It's just great story telling. So we're not idiots, we're not going to ignore great story telling. Grab it, use it, and claim it -- then call it 'an homage,'" she added with a laugh.

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW

While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Carlos Valdes revealed that he will appear on "Legends of Tomorrow."

Additionally, it's possible we could see the character as his full superhero alter ego Vibe, costume and all.
