COMIC REEL: Jackman & Schreiber Trade Training Tweets; Rebecca Ferguson Out Of Running For “Gambit” Role

Schreiber previously portrayed Victor “Sabretooth” Creed in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” There’s still no word as to whether or not Schreiber or Sabretooth will be involved in the third — and final — Wolverine solo film.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

While talking with People’s Choice, “Batman V Superman” costume designer Michael Wilkinson revealed new information about the headlining heroes’ costumes.

“We tweaked the Superman suit only slightly from our suit from ‘Man of Steel,'” said Wilkinson. “We streamlined plus sharpened the details of the costume a little to suit the more earthly (less alien) context of this film. The batsuit is a complete 180 degree turn from the previous film incarnations — our Batman’s power comes from his incredible physical strength and fighting skills, not from armor. The director Zack Snyder wanted him to look as much like the comic book version as possible — to be respectful to the original source. As for the Wonder Woman suit, well she has never been seen in a film before, so there was nothing to compare it to! There is of course the costume from the TV show. Zack wanted our character to be a fierce and intimidating warrior — gritty, battle-scarred and immortal.”

Wilkinson also revealed that there’s a little bit of a Kryptonian flourish in the Superman suit.

“Zack had a great idea to have some Kryptonian script subliminally included in the details of the suit, so we made that happen,” said Wilkinson. ” There is ancient Greek script on Wonder Woman’s weapons too. My favorite details of the Batsuit are the brass knuckles on the gloves.

Heroic Hollywood has a potential spoiler for the film, regarding one of Lex Luthor’s potential misdeeds. According to an unnamed source, the villain will kidnap Ma Kent in order to get at Superman at some point during the film.

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, actress Elizabeth Rodriguez revealed more about her character, Lisa.

“Liza is Travis’ ex-wife,” she explained. “They were together for about 12 years. They got together when they were young and ended up getting pregnant young. They decided to get married and she wanted to go to medical school, but had to put it on hold for her family, at which point years went by, as they do. I think there were things about Travis that maybe they grew up at the same time, but apart. They wanted different things, certain things didn’t change, and so I decided to leave Travis about three years ago. So pretty much I’m the caretaker of my son, and in trying to make up for lost time I went back to school. But I can’t really become a doctor, so I go to nursing school, which is very important to the story. Travis sees his kid on some weekends. I think we have a good relationship for the most part, but recently he’s been caught up in Madison’s children, because they’re not all as perfect as my son. So there’s that, that causes a little bit of — I’m very protective of [our son] Chris.”

THE FLASH

In an interview with Collider, “Flash” executive producer Gabrielle Stanton talked a bit about whats to come in season two — like new addition Wally West.

“We want to stay respectful and totally satisfy what the fans want out of this,” said Stanton. “But on the other hand, we also need to change the character, twist things and put our own spin on it, so that it’s not exactly what everyone expects. Otherwise, you’re like, ‘We’re introducing Wally West,’ and someone looks it up on Wikipedia and knows the story, so they don’t watch. So, it will definitely be our twist on the Wally West character.”

A quick promo for season two has also popped up online.
