COMIC REEL: Harewood Praises His Shakespearean “Supergirl” Character; LAPD Beefs Up “Star Wars” Patrol

SUPERGIRL

During a set visit, actor David Harewood spoke to reporters about his role as Martian Manhunter on “Supergirl,” a role he couldn’t speak about until recently.

“It’s been a really wonderful journey, as an actor, to play this comic book character, who isn’t all macho and, ‘I want to save the world!,'” said Harewood, as reported by ComicBook.com. “]He] is somebody that was brought here completely by mistake and has learnt to understand humanity and has decided to help it and, you know, he’s the center of the Justice League and that’s just awesome! I just had no idea!

“I didn’t really know about the Justice League because, obviously, again, you look at Marvel you think about the Avengers,” he continued. “I didn’t really know about the Justice League until I started reading these comics and it’s been such a wonderful journey, so I’m really excited to see where this could go and to be a part of it. It’s just a great character to play. This is as good as playing MacBeth or Hamlet to me. This is a great character.”

Three new “BVS” character posters have arrived, each tweeted out by their respective actors.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Marvel.com has officially released the synopsis from “Captain America: Civil War,” which matches the one that made the rounds back in November.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd and Frank Grillo, with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.

Anthony & Joe Russo are directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee are the executive producers. The screenplay is by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2016.

DAREDEVIL

While speaking with Collider, Drew Goddard, who remains involved in “Daredevil,” spoke about the writing process and a little about what Frank Castle (the Punisher) might bring to the season.

“We try never to make pushing the boundary the goal, if that makes sense,” said Goddard. “You just do what’s right for the character. I think what’s nice about Netflix is that we have the freedom to be a little more adult, but none of us sit in the writers’ room and say, ‘Let’s shock everyone today.’ That’s not really the goal. It’s more about what’s the character going through. Obviously these characters, Frank, deal with darker and dirtier things, so we’ll see what happens there, but it’s never where we start. We start with character and if we’re allowed to push it, then we do”
