COMIC REEL: Del Toro Uncertain Of "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" Appearance; New "Ant-Man" Stills Hit Close To Home

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2

In an interview with IGN, Benicio Del Toro said that he most likely won't show up as the Collector in the sequel.

"I would like to keep working on that character, though," he said, after revealing his uncertainty. "It was kind of like a cameo. I would like to keep developing the character based on what's written in the comic books. I'd like to see some different sides. I had a blast working with James Gunn and the cast -- but it's not up to me."

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

In a talk with HeyUGuys, Clark Gregg talked about what's to come in season three of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and mentioned "Secret Warriors."

"I have no idea [what will happen] and, even if I did, I couldn't tell you," said Gregg. "I guess what I can say... is what I know from the end of season two. The rogue element of the Inhumans has been more or less defeated and it seems like Coulson's trying to bring his beloved Skye, who is more or less fully realized as Quake, into a new super secret team of powered agents, which very much sounds like something I know from the comics as 'Secret Warriors,' which is very exciting. It's a really cool kind of rogue... quiet part of S.H.I.E.L.D. that gets very involved in some of the goings on that happen around 'Civil War,' which is the 'Captain America 3' film that's shooting right now, which is a truly great chapter in Marvel Comics."

Returns September 29 on ABC

ANT-MAN

A whole bunch of Twitter reactions to "Ant-Man" have emerged that detail the film's tone, reveal that there is a post-credits scene and confirms that a certain character gets name-dropped for the first time.

It's possible that Marvel has allowed the press to tweet reactions following the screening as a way to boost interest and awareness in the film; pro.boxoffice has estimated that the film is tracking to open at around $55-60 million -- which would make it the lowest Marvel Studios opening since 2008's "Incredible Hulk."

Stitch Kingdom has a couple new stills from "Ant-Man."

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

ComicBookMovie has posted an unsourced pic that possibly shows Robert Downey Jr. returning to the Atlanta "Civil War" set.

DAREDEVIL

Jon Bernthal briefly talked to CBS News about his new role as Punisher in "Daredevil" season two.

"I'm extremely honored and grateful, and I know the character has a ton of fans out there," said Bernthal. "I give every single one of them my word that I'm going to give it my all."

SUICIDE SQUAD

In an interview with E! Online, Jared Leto's "Squad" co-star Adam Beach revealed that the Academy Award-winning actor greeted all of his castmates with some gruesome gifts.

"He sent Harley [Margot Robbie] a nice love letter with a black box with a rat in it -- a live rat," revealed Adam Beach, who is reportedly playing Slipknot in the film. "It was beautiful. Then he sent bullets to Will [Smith] with a letter."

Since "Suicide Squad" began filming before Leto arrived on set, the actor apparently felt the need to assure his co-stars that he was preparing for the role. This involved sending a "dead hog" to the set, addressed to everyone, with an accompanying video message featuring himself in full Joker mode.

"Basically, what he said was, 'Guys, I can't be there but I want you to know I'm doing my work as hard as you guys,'" said Beach. "The video he showed is in character. It blew our minds away. Then we realized that day, this is real."

Beach went on to talk about Leto's specific rendition of the Joker. "He encompasses this beautiful man and he shows it in, 'Hello, how are you?,' but in an instant, he goes to psychotic behavior where you're in fear. But you love him because he has both of those genuine sides."
