COMIC REEL: "Deadpool's" Baccarin Teases "Awesome Sex Montage"; Hear "Ant-Man's" Heroic Theme

DEADPOOL

While speaking with CinemaBlend, "Deadpool" actor Morena Baccarin spoke about the love story angle between her Vanessa and Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool.

"It's an origin story for these characters, so you see them falling in love," said Baccarin. "You see them meeting each other for the first time and discovering that they're kindred spirits. There's this awesome sex montage, you see them love each other more and more." Baccarin further explained that Deadpool's cancer diagnosis drives them apart.

"He sort of detaches from her because he wants to go through this cancer thing, and doesn't want her to be witness to it. And it remains to be seen whether they'll find each other again."

ANT-MAN

Variety spoke with Paul Rudd about getting in shape for "Ant-Man," and Rudd revealed how he accomplished his heroic makeover.

"I basically didn't eat anything for about a year," said Rudd. "I took the Chris Pratt approach to training for an action movie. Eliminate anything fun for a year and then you can play a hero."

Rudd also talked about wearing the super hero suit, saying, "It was just cool all the way around. I felt like the part in that thing. It was a lot of fun. It got a little toasty, but it was never debilitating."

There's also a new batch of TV spots for "Ant-Man" ahead of its release on Friday.

In an interview with CBR, director Peyton Reed spoke about making "Ant-Man" -- which was originally to be directed by Edgar Wright -- his own film.

"Listen, I read the existing drafts. I had my reactions to it," said Reed. "There were elements of it that I love and thought were fantastic, and elements that I thought could be deepened and strengthened. It happened to coincide at the point where Adam McKay had signed on to co-write the screenplay with Paul. I'd known Paul and Adam for some time and never had a chance to work with them, so it just made sense across the board to me. Knowing Marvel, you know that they have a system in place to do this like nobody else can these days. I knew I was going to be supported by an amazing team of visual effects people, so -- listen, I jumped at the chance."

"Ant-Man" composer Christophe Beck has posted the film's theme to YouTube, which feels very much in line with the movie's heist/spy tone.

Deadline has estimated that "Ant-Man" will pull in between $115-$125 million on its opening weekend. The "Minions" juggernaut is expected to give "Ant-Man" some competition, though.

ARROW

While speaking with TV Line, the cast of "Arrow" dropped a few hints about where the CW show is going when it comes back for it's fourth season. Of course, John Barrowman -- who plays Malcolm Merlyn -- admitted that he knew less than he'd like about the future of his character.

"I can't say anything at the moment because it will be revealed where he is and what's going on with him," said Barrowman. "Obviously he's the head of the League of Assassins, he's the new Ra's al Ghul." Barrowman said he doesn't know what the status or internal politics of the League will be when the show returns. He did, however, have a few comments for fans about the season premiere, which we know now will be titled "Green Arrow."

"Bring your tissues, bring everything" said Barrowman. "It's one of those episodes where, when you're watching, you're gonna go, 'What?!?!"

"Especially the last scene," added co-star Paul Blackthorne. "That last scene is gonna haunt the rest of the season."

Returns October 7 on the CW

DOCTOR STRANGE

Tilda Swinton has confirmed to Screen Crush that she is, indeed, playing the Ancient One in "Doctor Strange."

"It's done," she revealed when asked about her talks with Marvel. "We're so far in talks that we're not talking any more. It's done. The conversation has been had."

She added that she "just really liked the premise of this and the idea of playing this character. I'm a Marvel fan and I think this particular world that Doctor Strange goes into is really, really, really exciting. The idea of playing The Ancient One is really just too tickling. I can't say no to that!"

While talking with "Elle," Margot Robbie revealed the status of the rat she was gifted by her co-star Jared Leto. She said the rat is named Rat Rat, and even though several crew members wanted to get rid of it, Robbie kept it because "If Harley [Quinn] got something from Joker, she'd probably cherish it." She told the magazine that Rat Rat eats organic berries from Whole Foods.

THOR: RAGNAROK

While chatting with MTV and promoting her new NBC series "Blindspot," Jaimie Alexander minced zero words when asked if her Marvel alter ego Sif would be suiting up for battle one more time in "Thor: Ragnarok."

"Yes," said Alexander, definitively stating news that's sure to please fans of the Asgardian warrior. But while Alexander does know with one hundred percent certainty that she will appear in the 2017 film, she's fuzzy on exactly how much of the movie she'll be in.

"I don't know the answer to that question, but I know I'm in it," said Alexander. You can see the interview below.
