COMIC REEL: "Deadpool" Director Talks Keeping Reynolds' Face Covered; "Arrow" Stills Show Gun-Toting Felicity


During an appearance on Adi Shankar's "Bootleg Universe Pitch Show," "Deadpool" director Tim Miller discussed the decision to keep Ryan Reynolds' face covered as Deadpool.

"If Deadpool were a different type of character, it would be difficult to portray emotion," said Miller, as transcribed by CinemaBlend. "But Deadpool is running at the mouth the whole time. You almost don't need to see his face because he's telling you how he feels constantly." You can watch the appearance below.

You can check out our recap of last night's "Arrow" episode, "The Candidate," over here. There's also a promo for next week's installment, "Restoration."

While speaking with Variety, co-showrunner Wendy Mericle spoke about the addition of Echo Kellum's Mr. Terrific -- a gay character -- to the show.

"We're very excited about him, and not just because he's LGBT and we have an opportunity to explore that, but also he's just a great character and Echo Kellum is phenomenal," Mericle said. "He has good scenes with Felicity. He brings a new, fresh dynamic. Obviously Ray [Brandon Routh] is leaving the show so we wanted a new superhero in that vein... It wasn't necessarily to come at it from any particular angle in terms of gender or sexual orientation. It was more, it's season four and one of the obvious secrets of keeping your show alive is you've got to repopulate, and Mr. Terrific was somebody that we discussed with DC and we were excited about. He's smart and athletic and cool."

And there are also some new photos for next week's episode, "Restoration."


Heroic Hollywood has heard a rumor that Marvel is eyeing "Fruitvale Station" and "Creed" director Ryan Coogler to helm their upcoming "Black Panther" film. It is unclear whether or not a deal has been offered at this time.

While speaking with Collider, "Legends of Tomorrow" showrunner Phil Klemmer spoke about their time travel rules.

"We do construct a sort of rule on our show," said Klemmer. "If you kill me right now with a hatchet, the rest of the team on the show can't go back in time and stop you from hitting me with a hatchet. The rule is that you can't interfere with events that that you participated in. That creates a time paradox and black hole and horrible things happen. We want to keep those tensions alive so when our characters are in moments of mortal peril that they do have consequences -- that it's not like 'Groundhog Day' and we'll start over tomorrow."
