ComicBookMovie has a few quotes from Frank Grillo's recent call-in appearance on Philadelphia's 93.3 WMMR. The actor, who plays Crossbones in "Civil War," talked a little bit about the leaked photos of his armor.

"It's funny because people really responded to it -- it went viral, trended [like crazy], so I've been getting phone calls," said Grillo. "Crossbones is a violent, violent villain in these series. And I finally feel I've been understood now. I feel complete; [people] get me."

The actor confirmed that he's completed filming on the movie, at least for now. "My part of it is down here in Atlanta, but I think they are going off to Berlin for a little while," said Grillo. Even if he's wrapped on "Civil War," Grillo made sure to tease future Crossbones appearances.

To answer all those who think #CROSSBONES is done .......Don't get caught w your guard down. #MayhemNeverDone #x

The Santa Fe New Mexican newspaper has a piece about "Preacher," focusing on the AMC pilot's mission to restore an old church for use in the show. The church, which was built in 1926, was decommissioned in 1994 due to lack of attendance. Now, "Preacher" producers have paid to give the structure a makeover, repairing it, replacing its stained-glass windows and upgrading the church's electrical wiring. Local residents Ricky Lee and Butch Basinski hope that the church will remain active even after "Preacher" wraps and plan to host an open house showing off the fixed up building.
