COMIC REEL: Ritter Appears In "AKA Jessica Jones" Set Photos; "iZombie" Parody Sells Easy Brains Oven


Comingsoon.net and the Daily Mail have snapped pics of Krysten Ritter filming scenes for Marvel's upcoming Netflix series, "A.K.A. Jessica Jones." The images show Ritter as Jessica sporting a few scrapes.


Marvel and ABC have released a batch of promotional images for the upcoming episode "Love in the Time of Hydra," which airs on March 24.


The CW has announced the finale dates for it's lineup, including "Arrow." The current third season of "Arrow" will wrap on May 13.


Marvel has announced six new cast members set to appear in their upcoming Netflix series "Daredevil." Playing the characters familiar to longtime "Daredevil" readers are Rob Morgan ("Person of Interest," "Believe") and Matt Gerald ("Avatar," "Dexter"). Morgan will take on the role of Turk Barrett, described as a "smalltime criminal" in Hell's Kitchen, while Gerald will play a machinist named Melvin Potter that gets "caught between a rock and a hard place."

Turk Barrett first appeared as a member of a street gang way back in 1970's "Daredevil" #69. From there, Barrett found semi-regular employment with Wilson Fisk -- the Kingpin -- and even made failed attempts to become the new Stilt-Man and Mauler. Melvin Potter is perhaps better known by the codename Gladiator and has ties that stretch back even further; he debuted in 1966's "Daredevil" #18. He was initially a costume designer with a hatred for costumed superheroes.

The four original characters added to the series are Peter Shinkoda ("Falling Skies," "Hawaii 5-0") as Nobu -- described as a "Japanese businessman with an agenda all his own" -- and Wai Ching Ho ("Law and Order: Special Victims Unit," "Blue Bloods") as Madame Gao, a "powerful woman running her own trade." Lastly, Nikolai Nikolaeff ("Camp," "Sea Patrol") and Gideon Emery ("Grimm," "How to Train Your Dragon 2") will play Russian brothers named Vladimir and Anatoly hoping to "forge new names for themselves in America."

Premieres on April 10 on Netflix


As revealed in the above image, "The Flash" will conclude its debut season on May 19.

The CW has also released a synopsis for "Tricksters," the episode set to air on March 31.

MARK HAMILL ("STAR WARS") REPRISES HIS ROLE AS THE TRICKSTER - A copycat killer who goes by the name "The Trickster" (guest star Devon Graye) starts setting off bombs in Central City. In order to stop the villain, Barry (Grant Gustin) and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) meet with the original Trickster, a criminal mastermind named James Jesse (guest star Mark Hamill), who has been imprisoned for 20 years. Things quickly go from bad to worse when the Tricksters unite and take Henry (John Wesley Shipp) prisoner. Meanwhile, Iris (Candice Patton) asks Eddie (Rick Cosnett) for help with a case, and flashbacks show how Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) came up with the idea for the particle accelerator. Ralph Hemecker directed the episode written by Andrew Kreisberg.

Nerdist has posted a commercial parody sketch that ties in with "iZombie's" premiere by selling the fake-for-now Easy Brains Oven. It's a pretty spot-on parody of '90s kids' commercials, but BEWARE -- the video autoplays so make sure you have your earbuds plugged in or your laptop on mute unless you want everyone in the office to know what you're watching.

The CW has released another new promo, this one called "Working Dead," for their upcoming series based on the Vertigo series.

CinemaBlend has reported that, according to their unnamed sources, "Magic Mike" and "True Blood" star Joe Manganiello is "locked up" for the part of Deathstroke in David Ayer's "Suicide Squad." The site says that while Manganiello is reportedly close to signing on, the deal isn't done yet. Jason Clarke ("Dawn of the Planet of the Apes") is reportedly still in the running for the Deathstroke role, but Manganiello is the rumored frontrunner. Deathstroke's involvement in the film has yet to be officially confirmed by Warner Bros., but rumors state that the character will be included in a supporting role as Waller's "personal bodyguard."
