COMIC REEL: LeFauve Talks "Captain Marvel's" Pixar Ties; "X-Men's" Peters Teases Slow-Mo Quicksilver Scene

CAPTAIN MARVEL

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, "Good Dinosaur" screenwriter Meg LeFauve spoke about her upcoming co-writing gig with Nicole Perlman on "Captain Marvel."

"We're just starting. We have just started researching and spit balling," said LeFauve when asked where the "Captain Marvel" script was at. "Nicole and I have decided that we're going to have a good time." LeFauve also said that she learned a few things working with Pixar that she can apply to the superhero movie. "I think animation has the ability to have a world, and it can be a big world, but in that big world there will be a very human, personal story. I think that applies to a lot of bigger studio movies, as well."

ARROW

CBR's recap of last night's "Arrow" episode, "Brotherhood," can be read over here.

ComicBook.com has an interview with the episode's director, "Arrow" stunt coordinator James Bamford. "I've directed second units and I've directed action before but this is my first time directing a full episode of television," said Bamford. "So in my mind, the challenge was directing actors outside of just action and performance with intent emotional content in the scene, and stuff like that. But having been an actor myself back in the day, it was pretty natural, actually, and the performances I got out of our cast were just amazing. There was nothing I asked of them that they wouldn't do."

The CW has also released a synopsis for the midseason finale episode, "Dark Waters."

OLIVER TAKES ON HIVE - After the city is attacked again, Oliver (Stephen Amell) makes a bold move against HIVE. Malcolm (John Barrowman) checks in on Thea (Willa Holland) and leaves her with a warning. Things take a horrible turn when Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) retaliates in a brutal manner at Oliver's mayoral holiday party. John Behring directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Ben Sokolowski (#409).

JESSICA JONES

In an interview with Deadline, "Marvel's Jessica Jones" showrunner Melissa Rosenberg discussed how much the knowledge that "Defenders" would hit at some point in the future affected the show's plotting -- turns out, not very much.

"Truthfully, no one knows where it was going to end up, and we certainly didn't putting together 'Jessica Jones,'" Rosenberg said. "It's funny because it didn't play in at all, except that occasionally us writers in the room would go, 'Gosh, I wonder if the story we just came up for that there's no room for in our series, maybe The Defenders can use it.'"

Rosenberg further stated that "there is a plan" for what "Defenders" will be, but she's not a part of it, and though it all connects, "each series exists in its own world."

Netflix has also released a tense clip from "Jessica Jones" that features the titular heroine trying to protect Trish Walker from Kilgrave's gaze.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE

While speaking with Collider, Evan Peters offered up a few small hints about "Apocalypse's" show-stopping Quicksilver scene.

"Yeah, Quicksilver does his thing again, in the new film. It's bigger, longer and more detailed. I think it's an amazing sequence that they've put together. Just filming it, I was like, 'Oh, my god!' I think we shot for 22 days of second unit, working on the sequence, which is amazing. It's so cool to take that much time to make something like that really pop and really work. Knock on wood, I think it's going to be a fun and enjoyable sequence for people to watch, with Quicksilver running around and doing his thing in slow-mo time. I hope people like it."
