COMIC REEL: Cyclops & Jean Team Up In New “X-Men: Apocalypse” Still; “Infinity War” Writers Promise Lots Of Thanos

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

CBM has a new still from “Apocalypse,” revealed in an upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly. The image features Jean Grey and Cyclops using their powers in tandem.

ARROW

As revealed by executive producer Wendy Mericle on Twitter, “Arrow” has wrapped production on season four.

Actor David Ramsey spoke to “Access Hollywood” about the ramifications recent events are having on his character, Diggle.

“Post-traumatic stress syndrome has happened to the whole team after Laurel’s death,” said Ramsey. “He’s no exception, and so we’re seeing a Diggle that we’ve never seen before. What has happened to his brother — the betrayal, the not-death, the H.I.V.E., the not quite H.I.V.E. — he is on an emotional tailspin, his wife now a part of this organization, ARGUS, which clearly has its own agenda that he’s never really fully agreed with, so I think we’re looking at a Diggle who… this is a nuts and bolts kind of guy. And there was a great line that Lyla had during the Suicide Squad episode of Season 2. … She [said] very clearly, ‘You see the world in black and white, and the world is much more complicated,’ and I think that’s always been his Achilles heel … The same thing that makes Diggle strong in that he sees it black and white and therefore he’s honorable and super loyal and he will take the grenade, is the same thing that is his Achilles heel. He can’t really wrap his head around the gray areas. … You’re going to see a Diggle who has to deal with the gray and because of that, he is fractured and he is willing to do things that you never would have thought him to do.”

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely spoke to Huffington Post about the early comments that “Infinity War” would feature 67 characters — comments that directors Joe and Anthony Russo quickly clarified were hyperbolic.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

A few new bits of footage can be seen in this new TV spot for “Civil War.”

“Iron Man” director Jon Favreau spoke about “Civil War,” praising the film’s portrayals of Spider-Man and Iron Man. “I think Spider-Man made me smile every second the character was on the screen,” said Favreau. “I was so pleased with the tone of the film in general, but those sequences specifically, and I just loved the way they introduced the character. I love the version of Tony Stark I saw, especially in those scenes. As somebody who was part of the beginning of the screen persona of Tony Stark, I thought that this was really impressive and a wonderful expansion of that character.”

A pair of international posters featuring Vision and Scarlet Witch have arrived online.

DOCTOR STRANGE

As CB.com noticed, co-screenwriter C. Robert Carghill appeared on the Sunday Service podcast and talked about his work on “Doctor Strange.”

“You are only getting a small taste of just how crazy this movie gets. We have only just the slightest hints of magic in there,” said Carghill. “There are major characters you don’t even glimpse in that trailer. There is so much stuff going on, that this thing is just nutty, the stuff they let us do, I can’t believe they let us do it.”

LUKE CAGE

CBR spoke with “Luke Cage” showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker and Simone Missick, who plays Misty Knight, during the “Civil War” premiere. They both talked about how different “Luke Cage” will feel from the previous two Marvel/Netflix series.

“The colors, the feel, the sounds — everything about this show is its own thing,” said Missick. “Harlem is a character in this show. All the other shows took place in Hell’s Kitchen; this is the first one that’s taking place in Harlem, and you definitely feel that. You feel that in the music, in the conversation, in the characters, everything. It’s its own thing. ‘Luke Cage’ is something completely new.”

“For me, hip-hop has always been black superhero music,” added Coker. “And now we have a black superhero that matches the music. When you think about Wu-Tang, when you think about A Tribe Called Quest records like ‘Midnight Marauders,’ it’s deep in the culture, but at the same time, it’s become the new rock and roll. Everybody accepts it, everybody understands it. That’s really the vibe of the show — on one hand, we’re dealing with Harlem in ways that really haven’t been dealt with. But at the same time, it’s a superhero show. At the same time, you get to meet Luke Cage. You get to meet Misty Knight. You get to meet all these other characters. It’s these comics come to life with a hip-hop vibe. It’s incredibly fun.”

Debuts on September 30 on Netflix

NEW MUTANTS

“Game of Thrones” actor Maisie Williams has responded to the rumors that she is in talks to play Wolfsbane in the “New Mutants” movie.

“I can’t say much about it at all, but I would absolutely love to be a part of it, [and] to be a part of the Marvel family,” Williams told Entertainment Weekly. “‘New Mutants’ looks absolutely incredible and I’ve always loved the idea of spin-offs and [director] Joshua Boone is incredibly talented. So, yeah, sign me up.”

WOLVERINE 3

SuperHeroHype has heard an unconfirmed rumor from an unnamed source that X-23 may be making her feature film debut in “Wolverine 3.” The report follows a casting call sent out for “Wolverine 3,” which asks for, “Caucasian, Hispanic, and Asian-looking females over the age of 21, a height of 4′ – 4’11, and a size 0-4,” (via ComicBook.com).
