COMIC REEL: Paltrow Crosses Fingers For Potts’ Return; “Flash” Star Shocked By Reverse Flash Reveal

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

Dish Nation has a few quotes from a recent talk with Gwyneth Paltrow where the actress reveals that she would be up for reprising her role as Pepper Potts in the upcoming “Captain America” sequel.

“I don’t know,” said the actress when asked about her involvement. “I’ve heard rumors that maybe, and I don’t know… My fingers are crossed. I would love to be Pepper Potts again at some point in my life.” Rumors have been swirling about Paltrow’s involvement ever since her “Iron Man” co-star Robert Downey Jr. joined “Civil War’s” cast. Paltrow has so far made an appearance in every film to feature Downey’s Stark in a starring role, including all three “Iron Man” films and “Marvel’s the Avengers.”

THE FLASH

You can check out our recap of last night’s episode, “Power Outage,” over on Spinoff.

Entertainment Weekly has an interview with EP Andrew Kreisberg and “Flash” lead Grant Gustin where they talks about Barry’s upcoming clash with Reverse Flash.

“Barry will actually get to come face to face with him, not just running with him, but standing face to face with him, looking at him,” said Gustin. “He’s vibrating, so he doesn’t know who he is. We don’t see his face. No characters see his face and the audience doesn’t necessarily see his face either, but Barry gets to hear him say that he killed his mom.”

While viewers may not learn the villain’s identity just yet, Gustin revealed that Kreisberg has told him — and the truth came as a big surprise. “I’ve heard so many theories surrounding Reverse Flash that are all interesting,” said Gustin. “I was like, ‘Oh, I know what’s going on,’ but literally no one knows what’s going on. Anyone who thinks they know what’s going on is wrong. I’m in the in and I thought I knew, but Andrew told me and I was like, ‘Holy crap.'”

Kreisberg did reveal that the arrival of Reverse Flash will unite the S.T.A.R. Labs team like never before. “It’s fun when you finally see our team confronting the Reverse Flash and seeing everybody’s reactions, because he is the devil, in a way, to the show,” said Kreisberg. “When you finally see everybody confront him, it’s really scary. It’s certainly the scariest thing we’ve done on the show. Our tone note to Tom, Jesse and Grant was to pretend you were in the room with the alien from ‘Alien.’ You should all be that scared.”

You might not be scared of Robbie Amell when he returns to the series as Firestorm. The actor recently talked Access Hollywood about his Firestorm makeover.

“I look ridiculous when you see me next,” said Amell “Most people won’t even recognize me for a couple seconds when you see my character return — but you’ll know it’s Firestorm shortly after.” The actor revealed that he will be wearing a wig and fake facial hair when he makes his comeback appearance. You can check out the interview, which also includes Amell’s comments on his Firestorm cohort Victor Garber, below.

GOTHAM

JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK

Forbes has learned that Guillermo Del Toro has turned in his finished script for the long-in-development “Dark Universe,” a film starring the supernatural and occult heroes of the DC Universe. Warner Bros. execs are expected to read the draft — which is said to include John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman and Zatanna — over the weekend. The development comes as good news to fans worried by the film’s exclusion from Warner Bros./DC’s mega-slate announcement. Del Toro has said in the past that WB will keep the supernatural DC films separate from the hero films, at least initially.

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE

A new trailer for “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” the next collaboration between comic book writer Mark Millar and director Matthew Vaughn, has been released via Empire. The clip features Colin Firth kicking ass as a dapper secret agent while classic rock songs both American (The Knack’s “My Sharona”) and British (Bowie’s “Suffragette City”) set the mood.

The movie has also released five character posters. You can check out a few below and the rest here on CBR.
