ANT-MAN & THE WASP

With a 2018 release date set, the creative team behind the “Ant-Man” sequel “Ant-Man and the Wasp” has now been locked in. A report from Deadline confirms what returning director Peyton Reed told CBR News earlier this week — Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari will help write “Ant Man and the Wasp” for Marvel Studios.

Barrer and Ferrari previously did six months of uncredited writing work on “Ant-Man,” and they are expected to break the story for the sequel along with star Paul Rudd and Adam McKay. Rudd and McKay also worked on the script for “Ant-Man.” Deadline adds that once the story is broken out, Barrer and Ferrari will work with Rudd on the script.

SUICIDE SQUAD

“Suicide Squad’s” Ike Barinholtz appeared on The Howard Stern Show and talked about his experience on the super-movie’s set. He went into detail about Jared Leto’s now infamous gift-giving session.

“He did this crazy thing…all the actors were rehearsing, and his character is in love with Margot Robbie — she’s Harley Quinn…so we’re rehearsing, and this actor who plays the Joker’s kind of lieutenant, walks in and he goes, ‘Present for Ms. Quinn.’ Hands her a box. She opens the box, and a live, giant black rat pops out,” said Barinholtz, as transcribed by ComicBook.com. “And we’re like, ‘What the f–k is going on? That’s crazy!’ So 20 minutes later, we’re still rehearsing, and the actor comes back in and he goes, ‘This is for the squad from Mr. J. And he throws a pig on the table, a dead pig, and as he puts the pig on the table all these bullets start to come out of it…this is in a rehearsal space a month before we started shooting.”

He also said that Margot Robbie has a tattoo gun and would put it to work on the cast and crew. “She has a tattoo gun, so [the cast would] get drunk and [she’d be] like, ‘Alright, let me give you a tattoo.’ And one of the guys she tattooed, she made a big typo. And he was like, ‘Oh it’s cool, don’t worry about it!'”

SUPERGIRL

“Supergirl” star Mehcad Brooks and showrunner Ali Adler opened up on how the show is trying to change the conversation surrounding diversity during an interview with Collider.

“That’s a testament to Andrew Kresiberg, Ali Adler, Sarah Schechter and Greg Berlanti,” explained Brooks, who plays Jimmy Olsen. “They come from a generation that understands where we are today in our society. So, I think that they have taken an incredible opportunity to talk about sexism, and an incredible opportunity to talk about human inequity, whether that’s race or gender or, knowing them, I think we’ll probably get into sexual preference. But, it’s just been a really incredible opportunity to be able to be subversive in a good way.”

Adler also addressed why she believes “Supergirl” has come under such scrutiny from fans and critics alike, saying, “[If] there were a female President, every move she makes will be scrutinized. But at the end of the day, she’ll just have been the President, so it really doesn’t matter. We hope people are watching, that they continue to, and of course when you’re the first of anything — and that’s just in the forty years since we’ve had a traditional female superhero on the networks — but it all just becomes part of the landscape. I think even our conversations are changing. That it’s less about [Supergirl] being female and more about her being Kara.”
