After replacing a number of directors and leading men, the "Crow" reboot hit another snag when it's studio, Relativity, filed for bankruptcy. "Crow" creator James O'Barr addressed these hardships during an appearance at the Twin Tiers Comic Con in Elmira, New York, as reported by ComicBook.com.
"It's still very much a live property," said O'Barr. "The company, Pressman Films, that owns the 'Crow' film and TV rights, licensed it to a studio named Relativity. And Relativity made like a hundred bad movies and lost money so now they're in financial trouble. So the producers are just going to take it to another studio if Relativity can't get backing again. It's going to happen. I talked to Pressman Films a couple of weeks ago and they said within two or three weeks, we should have it placed at a new studio. Because the day Relativity announced that they were having financial problems, there were like a dozen other studios that called about getting 'The Crow' property. it definitely will happen."
Digital Spy has an interview with "Deadpool" adversary Ed Skrein wherein he talks about how his character, Ajax, was adapted from the comics.
"No, we don't go too deep into Ajax's backstory," said Skrein. "We mention it, it's very faithful to the first section of Ajax in the comics, the backstory that we see, the flashbacks in the comics, and so we're very faithful to that. There's a second half of Ajax in the comics, where he comes back five years later with this big crazy suit and stuff, and we didn't touch on that, so this is the early Ajax. We've stayed very faithful to that."

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD
Entertainment Weekly has an interview with Robert Kirkman ahead of "Fear the Walking Dead's" debut this weekend.
"The two shows are so different," said Kirkman, comparing it to parent series "The Walking Dead." "If this was the spin-off Michonne show or Daryl Dixon show, yeah. But 'Fear The Walking Dead' is a great appetizer to season 6 that will hopefully serve to just make fans that much more excited for the return of the characters they've grown to love for going on six years. I'm confident we're doing this the right way. We're building a wing on the house. It's nice, it's got a library, it's adding to the overall value of the thing. We're not just throwing a second story on top hoping the ground level can suddenly support the additional weight. We don't borrow from the original, we don't detract from it in any way. 'Fear The Walking Dead' adds to the overall tapestry of 'The Walking Dead' -- it's another glimpse into a hopefully fascinating world that stands on its own."

CBR also has an interview with Cat Grant herself, Calista Flockhart, from a press opportunity following CBS' TCA presentation. Flockhart spoke about how her character misses the fact that she works alongside Supergirl.
"Well, Cat might be guilty of being a bit of a narcissist, and she's very preoccupied with her business, and she has an assistant that is named Kara," said Flockhart. "That's what that relationship is at the moment, but I think as the series goes on, [I'm] hoping that we're going to discover more. I think Cat is going to become more and more aware of Kara [Care-ah] and start calling her Kara [Car-ah]. I think that there will be a relationship. I think that she'll become a bit of a mentor."
