COMIC REEL: Joker Origin To Kick Off "Gotham" Season 2; Fantastic Four Power Up In New Stills


You can check out a recap of last night's episode, "Under the Knife," over on Spinoff.

Fox has also started airing a promo for next week's episode, "The Anvil or the Hammer."

"Gotham" EP Bruno Heller also talked about the show's second season to ComicBook.com, revealing some Joker-related details in the process.

"You're not going to see teases of the Joker before the end of the season, because the beginning of season two is a big Joker-oriented, or 'how the Joker came to be' kind of story," said Heller. "The beginning of season two is the very earliest origins of how the Joker came to be."

In an interview with CBR, Robin Lord Taylor talked about how the Penguin's upcoming plans will affect everyone on the show.

"Well, as we've seen through the whole season, he's gradually, bit-by-bit, been asserting himself as his own man, and his end goal is to not have to answer to anybody -- to be his own boss," said Lord Taylor. "We've seen that in the pilot, when he goes behind Fish's back and they have their thing, and then we see it when he aligns himself with Maroni, goes behind his back and is working with Falcone the whole time. What we're going to see in the final four is the final push. He sets some things in motion that affect everyone in the show. Everyone in the show will be affected by what he does in the last four episodes, and it really is his final assertion to being his own boss, to being his own man."

TV Line has a quote about "Arrow's" upcoming season 3 finale direct from executive producer Marc Guggenheim.

Following premiere of the "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" trailer at IMAX theaters, director Zack Snyder posted a new photo of Ben Affleck's Batsuit to Twitter. The image offers a straight ahead view of Batman's costume, albeit one that is cast in an appropriate amount of shadow.


In a brief exchange with the Toronto Sun, Stan Lee casually mentioned that "Big Hero 6" is getting a sequel.

"After Ant-Man, we're going to start playing around with Doctor Strange, the Black Panther, the Inhumans, and then we have to come back for 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2,' Big Hero 6, The Avengers, Captain America," said Lee. As Lee's producer credit on Marvel productions is mostly an honorary title, however, this should be taken with a grain of salt. Marvel and Disney have yet to formally announce a sequel for "Big Hero 6."


After a report last week indicating that "Guardians of the Galaxy" co-writer Nicole Perlman and "Inside Out" screenwriter Meg LeFauve had been brought on board to write the screenplay for "Captain Marvel," Marvel has officially confirmed the duo's involvement with Carol Danvers' first solo film.

In an interview with Collider, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige spoke very highly of director Adam McKay, stating that the "Anchorman" helmer and "Ant-Man" script doctor is in the running for all things Marvel.

"Adam McKay is in the running for everything. Adam McKay is a great, great writer and director," said Feige. "He did an amazing pass on the 'Ant-Man' draft with Paul Rudd for us, and I didn't know him before then. And we got to know him through that and liked him very much, and have met with him a number of times trying to find something else, so we've talked about a lot of characters with him." Collider notes that rumors are positing that McKay could helm "Inhumans."

The site also asked Feige about a rumored "Inhumans" logline that states that the film is "about a group of people that are given powers only to discover they might be part of an alien race."

"Well I'd say that's relatively fair," responded Feige, "but that's not official. I've never seen that as an official logline."

In the latest episode of Meet the Movie Press, hosts Justin Kroll and Jeff Sneider elaborated on Scott Eastwood's rumored DC role and the state of Wonder Woman's love interest, Steve Trevor.

"Scott Eastwood is not playing Steve Trevor," said Sneider, a reporter for the Wrap. "What Justin has heard was that Scott Eastwood basically had the choice: he could have a role in Suicide Squad -- a smaller role -- or he could test for the male lead in 'Wonder Woman' alongside guys like Alexander Skarsgard and Liam Hemsworth. And he chose the 'Suicide Squad' role. We don't know what that role is. I'm told that he's signed on for three pictures, but it isn't clear if 'Wonder Woman' is actually one of them."
