COMIC REEL: McKenzie Talks Batman On “Gotham”; “Supergirl” Tells “Her Story” In New Promo

GOTHAM

During “Gotham’s” panel at Wizard World Chicago, actor Ben McKenzie gave an answer — the most obvious answer — to the question of when Batman will appear on the origin series.

“In the very last frame of the very last scene of the very last episode of the very last season of Gotham, whenever that turns out to be, that’s when we’ll see Bruce Wayne put on the cape and cowl,” said McKenzie.

Fox has released another promo for the show’s second season, which teases the possibility of Joker’s arrival in Gotham.

Returns September 21 on Fox

ARROW

During an appearance at Wizard World Chicago, “Arrow” lead Stephen Amell spoke about the possibility of seeing Batman on his DC show.

On that topic, Amell revealed that he talked to DC Entertainment chief Diane Nelson about that very thing. Nelson told him that they wanted to make “the best version of each thing and not forcing crossovers just for the sake of forcing them.”

“In the same way that… [Ezra Miller’s] playing the Flash in the cinematic universe — theoretically, we haven’t seen him yet — I see no reason why we couldn’t have our own Bruce Wayne,” said Amell. “That’s my opinion; that might not be DC’s opinion, and their the bosses.”

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

While speaking with Collider, Jesse Eisenberg — who plays Lex Luthor — heaped high praise upon “BvS'” director and writer.

“I’ve never been involved for something that is parsed to this degree. Whether it be something that someone says that has some tangential relation to the movie or the trailer images that are released,” said Eisenberg. “It was initially surprising and fortunately the movie is really wonderful. So when people are parsing what the individuals images maybe be, the takeaway is how interesting the movie looks and how wonderful it is. You know, the script is phenomenal. Written by Chris Terrio, who is just brilliant. And Zack Synder is just visually, masterful. And I think everything that’s been released and parsed within an inch of its life has been received so well… The way [Snyder] shoots things — at least, insofar as my scenes were concerned — was very specifically and very simply a lot of my scenes are dialogue driven and it felt like I was on any other kind of intimate movie set. So watching that trailer for the first time, was when I really got a good sense of the overall movie, the look, and I thought it was really incredible. The environment on the set is one of respect and intimacy and allows the actors to do what actors do well even in the context of this huge and larger scope. And the production.”

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

ComicBook.com reported on Jeremy Renner’s appearance at Wizard World Chicago, wherein the Hawkeye actor may have accidentally confirmed which side Hawkeye will be on when “Civil War” breaks out.

When an audience member slyly asked why Hawkeye sides with Captain America in the film, a fact that had not been previously confirmed, Renner said: “I don’t know; they wrote me in that side. It made sense to me.” Realizing his slip up, Renner then joked, “Maybe I switched sides!”

“Captain America: Civil War” also wrapped principal photography over the weekend, with Marvel Studios co-president Louis D’Esposito making the announcement himself via Twitter.

FEAR THE WALKING DEAD

AMC has released a sneak peek of next week’s “Fear” episode, which features a trip to high school.

While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunner Dave Erickson talked about the show’s unexpected homage to the zombie film “28 Days Later.”

“Right now, playing off of the idea that they think this is viral and something you can catch that’s transmitted, they start to call them “the infected,” which is a nod to ’28 Days Later,'” said Erickson, referencing the 2002 zombie film. “We don’t get into a place in the story where they’re going to start throwing names. Whether it’s biters, roamers or walkers, our characters in season one still think these people are human and sick for a big chunk of time. ‘Infected’ made story sense for us, and as things evolve, we’ll come up with new names.”

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW

During an interview with DC Legends TV, executive producer Phil Klemmer spoke about Brandon Routh’s expensive Atom suit — emphasis on expensive.

“The only challenge is how expensive his costume costs,” said Klemmer, “and the danger that we actually injure [Brandon Routh] doing stunts, because his costume actually costs not just more than a car — more than, like, your average American home — so the scariest thing about Atom is I’m thinking, like, ‘When do you use a digital double, and when do you use Brandon?’ I mean, obviously Brandon is irreplaceable.”

That same interview also revealed that Hawkman will have more than just a guest spot on “Legends.” When asked if the hero was going to be a regular part of the series, Klemmer responded, “He is. He absolutely is.”

“[T]he way we’ve imagined them is that they’ve obviously been reincarnated through the ages together, but the fact that he remembers their previous lives and she doesn’t… it gives them very much like a Bogie & Bacall sort of [relationship],” Klemmer said, explaining how Hawkman’s presence will work with Hawkgirl’s role on the show.
