COMIC REEL: Downey Confirms, Denies "Iron Man 4"; "Flash" Debuts Strong


You can check out our recap of last night's episode, "Making Friends and Influencing People," here. After the episode aired, Elizabeth Henstridge, talked about Agent Simmons' Hydra turn to Entertainment Weekly.

"They sent us all the first episode and it was revealed that Simmons was imaginary," said Henstridge. "They took me aside and said she's coming back, but she's just gone for a second and roughly explained that she would be working undercover in Hydra. You just never know because they could tell you, 'Oh, don't worry, you're undercover,' but then they could turn it around and say, 'Oh, you're not actually undercover. You're a triple agent.' They tell you what you need to know to act your scenes, but anything after that, you never know. Any of us could still be Hydra. You can never relax too much on that, but I knew she would be undercover straight away."

Robert Downey Jr. has said a lot of things in the past twenty-four hours, one of them being an admission that he would be open for a guest appearance on the show. The comment came during his AMA session on Reddit.

Judging by the promo for next week's episode, "I Will Face My Enemy," Coulson seems to be incorporating some Stark level swagger into his spy game.

Deadline has reported that NBC has ordered three additional scripts of the supernatural drama based on the DC Comics character. Ordering additional scripts usually means that a network has faith in the series, which bodes well for "Constantine."

Debuts October 24 on NBC


The latest super hero show to debut this season kicked off its run with an impressive debut. "The Flash" scored the biggest series debut of any CW series since 2009's "Vampire Diaries." The episode averaged a 1.8 rating/6 share in adults 18-49, and was watched 4.5 million overall viewers.

You can check out our recap of the pilot episode here and our coverage of a "Flash" press event with the show's executive producers -- where the show claims the unofficial title of "most comic book show that's ever been made" -- here.

Entertainment Weekly posted a spoiler-filled interview with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg about the pilot's final scene.

"Time travel is going to play a big part in the overall series, but one of the things that we will discover is that time is mutable," said Kreisberg. "As the good Doctor says, time can be rewritten, so not everything you see on the show is necessarily what's going to come to pass and not necessarily everything that's happened is fixed."

The CW debuted a promo for next week's episode, titled "Fastest Man Alive," that includes Wentworth Miller's Captain Cold in action as well as a liplock with "Arrow's" Felicity Smoak.

"Flash" executive producer and DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns revealed a few shots of Miller as Captain Cold via his Instagram account yesterday.

The Iron Man giveth and he taketh away. Less than a day after revealing on "Ellen" that the armored Avenger would return for a fourth "Iron Man" film, Robert Downey Jr. quickly changed his story during an appearance on "The Late Show."

"There's no plans for an 'Iron Man 4.' There's no script for 'Iron Man 4,'" said Downey. "But [Marvel does] have a plan and I think they're gonna announce it. You know, [Marvel's] very secretive about it." The actor added that he is "going to be involved with Marvel, and there's gonna be plenty of fun stuff to happen."


With rumors swinging throughout the internet of a possible deal between Sony and Marvel to share Spider-Man, rumblings of a reboot have emerged as well. Badass Digest seems to think that while "Sinister Six" is still on track for its 2016 release, it could come with an all-new actor in the suit. Additionally, the website has heard from undisclosed sources that the "Venom" film has died and that we won't see another solo "Spider-Man" film for the next four or five years.

"Sinister Six" is expected to hit theaters in November 2016


AMC renewed their successful zombie drama for a sixth season before the debut of the show's fifth.The announcement revealed that current showrunner Scott Gimple will remain on board, which gives him the longest tenure in the role in the show's history.

Actor Steven Yeun talked to ComicBook.com about his kinda out-of-nowhere marriage to Maggie.

"I think the wedding was when I passed her the ring," said Yeun. "And that's what was so simple about that moment in Season Three, was that it's not about doing this whole massive wedding or getting down on one knee or making something so overly romanticized. The world that they live in is so dark and bleak and they don't know if they're going to survive the next day and for them, that one moment was a mutual understanding and a mutual agreement to say, this ring represents something but even without this, we're together. And if that means we're married regardless of whether some ceremony exists or we're notarized by some public official [laughs], it's just that we're together."

Returns October 13 on AMC
