COMIC REEL: Cooper May Return To "Agent Carter"; Singer Calls "Apocalypse" "True Birth" Of X-Men

AGENT CARTER

In an interview with Den of Geek, Hayley Atwell revealed that Dominic Cooper will reprise the role of Howard Stark in the show's second season.

Atwell said that "there will be repetition of characters. So Jarvis and Howard will be there with us again. Yeah, we can't have a show without those guys." Marvel has not confirmed Cooper's involvement yet.

Returns to ABC in 2016

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

TV Line has revealed the poster for "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." season three, which is illustrated by Jim Cheung. The poster will be available for those attending Marvel Television's panel Friday, July 10 from 3:00 to 4:15 pm in Ballroom 20, where the show's cast and crew will be on hand to discuss past seasons and tease what's in store when the series returns.

ANT-MAN

A new international TV spot for "Ant-Man" reveals that there is an Avenger in the film, and you might just miss him if you blink while watching it.

Opens July 17

Returns October 7 on the CW

DEADPOOL

As hinted at by Heroic Hollywood on Saturday (and posted to Twitter on Sunday; h/t to Uproxx), Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool will grace a variant cover of "Entertainment Weekly's" SDCC edition with an up close shot that offers a surprising amount of detail.

FANTASTIC FOUR

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, director Josh Trank talked a bit about the "slugfest" that's coming in his "Fantastic Four" reboot.

"The audience should expect an epic, massive, huge, multipower slugfest," said Trank. "This movie is big. A lot of stakes... I get the skepticism going into it because the previous movies weren't very good. It's a very hard title to crack."

The latest "FF" TV spot features "Power" by Kanye West like previous spots, but it also includes tons of new dialogue and shots of the team in action. It even features a roll-call moment, which is something that's played a part in selling pretty much every previous team-based superhero movie.

While that above TV spot gives us new shots of all of the four using their powers (Reed stretch punching, Thing tossing a tank), a new advertisement for the film's menu tie-in at Denny's gives surprisingly more insight into the Thing's personality. Up until now, Jamie Bell's CG-created hero has been relegated to a special effect and kept mostly in the shadow. This new promo for the Thing Burger not only gives us a taste of what the Thing might sound like in the film, it also captures the character's put-upon nature.

Opens August 7

SUICIDE SQUAD

While promoting "Terminator Genisys," Jai Courtney talked a bit about the beard he's currently sporting to play Captain Boomerang in "Suicide Squad."

"I'm all right with it," said Courtney about his new facial hair look. "I'm ready for it to go, it's not going anywhere yet. It could be worse... It wasn't [my idea]. [Director] David Ayer came into the makeup room when we were having the meetings to kind of decide what the thing was, and he just picked up the clippers and started shaving me. I'd shown up kinda hairy and had the freedom to move and he just started attacking me [with the clippers]." You can check out Courtney's beard comments in the video below.

Opens on August 5, 2016

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

While talking with EW, director Bryan Singer talked about the role "Apocalypse" plays in relation to two X-Men film trilogies.

"This is kind of a conclusion of six X-Men films, yet a potential rebirth of younger, newer characters," said Singer. "This is the true birth of the X-Men. This is how it happens."
