CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Hablemos de Marvel has posted some new promo art from “Civil War,” which has been rounded up by CBM.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

ComicBookMovie has a look at new “BVS” promo art, this time featured on cards and stickers, that feature renderings of the film’s trio of heroes.

DAREDEVIL

The latest issue of “Entertainment Weekly” features the first official stills of the Netflix series’ take on Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra (Elodie Yung).

The stills, the second of which has yet to be officially released by the magazine online, come from Twitter user BatarangBlues, who snapped pics of the magazine’s pages and posted them online. The images show Daredevil in his uniform tied up and at the mercy of a gun (and wrench) toting Frank Castle. The Elektra picture focuses solely on the assassin.

DEADPOOL

“Empire Magazine” has released the first look at the subscriber variant cover for its upcoming “Deadpool” issue, featuring a costumed Ryan Reynolds breaking the fourth wall a la his comic book counterpart.

DOCTOR STRANGE

As part of EW’s expansive coverage of “Doctor Strange,” director Scott Derrickson talked about the “trippy” visuals of the comic and upcoming film.

“I was always interested in the extreme mind-bending visuals of the comics,” said Derrickson. “I had very ambitious for the visuals, which were rooted in the comics, that movies haven’t done yet. And a lot of that goes back to the [Steve] Ditko artwork and all that ’60s craziness you see in the comics.”

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige detailed Doctor Strange’s first meeting with Tilda Swinton’s character the Ancient One. “[The] sequence culminates in what we, behind-the-scenes, refer to as the ‘Magical Mystery Tour,’ which literally takes him in a shocking and very fast way through the multiverse,” said Feige. “The images can be just as trippy — for lack of a better term — as those Ditko images were in the past. So, that, we hope, is going to set this movie apart from any of the other movies. And, from any other movie.”

Feige also told EW about casting Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead role. “He was someone that we were very interested in for a very long time,” said Feige. “[But] he kept getting more and more popular! He kept getting more popular, and more popular, and he kept getting busier, and busier, and it looked like the timing wasn’t going to work. So we looked at some other actors for a while and ultimately decided, ‘We have to try and make it work with Benedict and with his schedule.'”

EW also revealed more about Rachel McAdams’ still unidentified character.

“Rachel McAdams plays a fellow surgeon that has a history with Strange and is his sort of lynchpin to his old life, once he steps into he role of a sorcerer,” explained Feige. “She is someone he connects with at the beginning, and reconnects with, and helps anchor his humanity.”

Additionally, “Mads [Mikkelsen] is playing our main villain,” executive producer Stephen Broussard revealed to Entertainment Weekly.

“Mads’ character is a sorcerer who breaks off into his own sect,” elaborated Feige. “[He] believes that the Ancient One is just protecting her own power base and that the world may be better off if we were to allow some of these other things through [to his dimension].”

And more stills and art from the film have been released.

OUTCAST

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, creator Robert Kirkman discussed the differences in adapting “Outcast” to television — distinguishing the series as a show about characters with an end goal in mind, as opposed to the endless survivor story of “The Walking Dead.”

“‘Outcast’ is about people treating demonic possession as a solvable problem. So as opposed to performing an exorcism and leaving, packing up your stuff like, ‘Call me up when the next one happens,’ these people are going to be engaged in what’s actually going on, how to prevent it, and how to stop it once and for all.”

Premieres on Cinemax in 2016

SUICIDE SQUAD

During an interview about his indie western film “Diablo,” Adam Beach opened up about his character Christopher Weiss, a.k.a. Slipknot, in the upcoming “Suicide Squad” film (via Rama’s Screen).

“My version [of Slipknot] is basically a guy who’s just pissed off to be there,” Beach explained. “He’s an angry boy. But ya know, he’s like everybody else; he is a hired mercenary, assassin killer, so you know that paying the right money and he’ll get the job done. And as long as I kept that nature about him — that he can, in any minute, hang you with his ropes or stab you in the back — he is as worse as the Joker and Deadshot and Harley Quinn. That’s the beauty of it. We all filled the shoes of these villainous characters that are hired killers and now we’re asked to go and save the day in some shape or some form… How do you contain that?!”
