COMIC REEL: "Lucifer" Debuts Poster As "Constantine" Tears Down Sets; Kirkman Talks "Fear The Walking Dead"


As one Vertigo series ends its foray into television, another begins its marketing push. A new promo poster for "Lucifer" debuted on Thursday featuring Tom Ellis' Lucifer Morningstar playing the piano like he was straight out of a noir period piece.


In a series of new posters for Marvel's upcoming "Ant-Man" film, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) sizes himself up next to Captain America's shield, Iron Man's armor and Thor's hammer.


Another new "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" promo image from Licensing Expo 2015 debuted via Heroic Hollywood's Instagram and finds Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman standing front and center with a LexCorp twist.

With production on "Captain America: Civil War" well underway, Jeremy Renner -- who reprises his role as Hawkeye in the film -- posted a picture to his Twitter account of the welcome card given to the cast at the start of the shoot.

The card itself seems to be inspired by a "Civil War" fan poster mockup that's been floating around online for the past few weeks.


As if "Constantine" executive producer Daniel Cerone's letter to fans officially announcing the death of the series wasn't heartbreaking enough, production designer Dave Blass tweeted a photo of a set from the show coming down.

A sad day... Thanks for all of the support Hellblazers. Your support has been incredible. pic.twitter.com/aUn8cwFBz9

After much speculation and many rumors, Deadline seemed to confirm that renowned actor Chiwetel Ejiofor will be joining the cast of Marvel's upcoming Phase 3 film "Doctor Strange" as Baron Mordo -- although Marvel itself has not confirmed his involvement.

However, the report also mentions that fans shouldn't necessarily expect Ejiofor's Mordo to serve as the film's primary villain and that the Mordo on screen will be "an amalgamation of characters culled from Doctor Strange's mythology." Either way, considering Ejiofor's phenomenal talent, we definitely expect his involvement to be pure magic.

Forget everything you've seen about "Fantastic Four" so far, because this new TV spot takes the reboot's marketing in a totally new direction. Whereas the first few trailers played up the hard sci-fi edge added by director Josh Trank, this latest TV spot repositions the fantastic foursome as action stars in the making. The promo even plays up some of the film's more comic book-y elements by showing off every member of the team in action and touting them as the "next generation of heroes."

Opens August 7


We already know a few things about the timeline of the upcoming "Walking Dead" spinoff series "Fear the Walking Dead," namely that the show starts in the early days of the zombie apocalypse and that as the series continues it will eventually cross over into the timeline of its parent series. Now we also know how much the mythology of "Fear" affects "Walking Dead." Short answer: quite a dang bit.

"These two shows are very intertwined in the same world, even if their characters aren't necessarily going to interact because of geographical distances. So yeah, anything that you learn from 'Fear the Walking Dead' will apply to the mythology of 'The Walking Dead' and vice versa," executive producer and "Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman told Entertainment Weekly. "So you are going to get to see that the characters learn that they're all infected in a much different way. But all the rules do apply and are the same. That will be some of the fun if you're watching both shows."

Along with that tidbit from Kirkman, a new promo poster for the series hit the web and features a walker making its way down a dimly lit corridor.


After putting out a casting call for a new love interest, the CW is now reportedly looking to cast a season-long role for a character named John Clark to appear in "The Flash." Described as "a classically handsome, square-jawed hero in his 30s to early 40s, a slightly cynical man 'with an edge,'" who exactly John Clark is remains a mystery. It could be anything from Superman (Johnathan Kent + Martha Clark) to Jay Garrick, the Flash of Earth-2 that was teased in the season one finale.

Returns this Fall on the CW


In an interview with Yahoo! Movies, "Kingsman: The Secret Service" director Matthew Vaughn confirmed that he is working on a sequel.

"Well, the good news is that I'm writing it next door at the moment. If I think I can get the script good enough, then we are making it," Vaughn revealed when asked about a potential sequel. Fox greenlit the sequel earlier this year. Vaughn also revealed that we may see an American Kingsman in the sequel.


The Hollywood Reporter has disclosed that the animated adaptation of Noelle Stevenson's webcomic "Nimona" has landed at Fox Animation, in what THR dubbed a "competitive situation." Patrick Osborne, who directed the Oscar-winning animated short "Feast" that played before Disney's "Big Hero 6" last fall, is on board to direct. Screenwriter and former DreamWorks executive Marc Haimes is set to write the "Nimona" script.
