COMIC REEL: Downey May Keep "Bumping Along" With Marvel; Momoa Talks Aquaman's Look


Clearinghouse website Movie Casting Call has been getting a lot of attention thanks to a recent casting notice claiming to reveal who Daniel Bruhl is playing in the "Captain America" sequel. The site claims Bruhl will be playing Baron Zemo; neither the studio nor Bruhl's representation has confirmed the news.

In Empire Magazine's "Avengers" feature story, Robert Downey Jr. discussed his involvement in the film as a supporting character. "They said to me, 'If we have you, we can do this, or 'Cap 3' has to be something else. It's nice to feel needed. And at this point it's about helping each other, too. I look at it as a competition and I go, 'Wow, maybe if these two franchises teamed up and I can take even a lesser position, with people I like and directors I respect, maybe we can keep things bumping along."

Marvel has released a clip from tonight's "Agent Carter." The preview from "The Blitzkrieg Button" finds Jarvis driving a hard bargain.

The man who plays Jarvis, James D'Arcy, talked to CBR about his character's connection with Tony Stark's A.I. program J.A.R.V.I.S., which is voiced by Paul Bettany.

"He's an A.I. system," said D'Arcy. "He's Tony Stark's memory of what the real-life Jarvis is like, so he doesn't have to sound like me. He doesn't even have to behave exactly like me. He has to behave like Tony Stark's memory of me. That's the one thing that we know: at some point, I'm going to meet Tony Stark, and I'm presumably a big part of his life and his childhood. But I haven't had any conversations about that -- I'm just telling you what is self-evident."

Marvel.com has announced that David Tennant has joined the cast of "A.K.A. Jessica Jones" in the role of Kilgrave. The announcement offered a little bit of information on Kilgrave and gave the impression that Tennant will have a major part to play in the thirteen-episode series. "An enigmatic figure from Jessica's past," reads the announcement, "Kilgrave's reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero's world."


ComicBook.com has found audio from Jason Momoa's appearance on the Smart Works panel during the Sundance Film Festival. The actor discussed his upcoming turn as Aquaman, telling attendees that his version is "going to be a little different."

"[Zack Snyder's] idea is pretty amazing," said Momoa. "When I went in, he told me... my jaw kind of dropped. My jaw doesn't normally drop. What he has planned for the DC world and for... definitely for Aquaman is something that, you know... I think I was brought on for a certain reason and they got some really cool plans for him. I'm really excited for everyone to see it."

When asked if he would sport a beard and mustache as Aquaman, Momoa revealed a little bit about the character's look. "Well, just going off what you've seen so far ma'am, I don't think he is going to be blonde or white," said Momoa. "I can't really tell you because I haven't shot it yet. I hate to disappoint. But um, you know, I'm a little different than what those others. I hope you watch it with an open heart."

New information regarding the "Avengers" sequel has emerged via a feature story in this month's Empire magazine. Joss Whedon has revealed that he will most likely not return for the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War."

"I couldn't imagine doing this again," said Whedon when asked about returning. "It's enormously hard, and it [will] be, by [the time I would make 'Avengers 3 & 4'], a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part 'Infinity War' movie that would eat up the next four years of my life. I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe -- I love these guys -- but it ain't easy. This year has been more like running three shows than any year of my life. It is bonkers."

Aaron Taylor-Johnson also discussed his character, Quicksilver. "He's very agitated because everything runs too slowly for him. He's quick at everything. He's quick to lose his temper," he said. "It's more about Pietro and Wanda together, a yin/yang where he's very physical and very protective of her and she's very internal and always mothering him. Pietro doesn't [frick]ing trust anybody. The only one he cares for and at the end of the day will jump in front of a bullet for is his sister, Wanda."

Elizabeth Olsen also opened up about Scarlet Witch in the Empire article, as ComicBookMovie has learned.

"The coolest thing about Scarlet Witch is, because you've never seen her, we got to create how she moves," said Olsen. "Joss was really inspired by dancers, and so he knew that he wanted to change visually how she moves, to be more like a dancer than a fighter. I didn't really have to do much stunt training. Instead I trained with a dancer, Jenny White, which was its own kid of soreness, but it wasn't what I thought it would be."

She also elaborated on Wanda and Pietro's relationship with the Avengers. "Obviously there are plenty of countries in the world that hate America, for whatever history and pain they believe it has caused their own country and their own lives. That is the world we have created for Wanda and Pietro, to have been brought up in. What you're told a lot of times growing up is that that, country, those people, their way of living is the reason why we have been bombed. [The Avengers] are the worst evil in Wanda and Pietro's mind, not this guy who hasn't done anything yet."

When asked if her character would have a romance with the android Vision, Olsen became less informative, saying, "I don't know what you're talking about..."
