Latino Review has heard a rumor regarding the role that "Creed's" Tessa Thompson will play in "Ragnarok." According to the unnamed source, Thompson may be playing Valkyrie. Considering Valkyrie's role in the comics as a superhero in her own right, that seems to fit with how Thompson's mystery character was described when she was cast. It was previously reported that Thompson will play both Thor's love interest and "kind of a superhero."

USA Today has a new featurette focusing on "Doctor Strange" that includes interviews with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and director Scott Derrickson, who calls it a "mind trip action film."
In the accompanying interview, Derrickson talked about the film's experimental magic. "Traditionally when you think about practitioners of sorcery, they tend to be static in the casting and speaking of spells, and then something odd happens that become the spectacle that you watch. It's just more immersive and bigger than the characters."

I would like this to be, I mean, I know this is heavy but, 'The Wire' of Marvel television, because we really deal with a lot of different issues."

While speaking with Collider, director David Ayer revealed how he felt directing Ben Affleck's Batman in "Suicide Squad."
"I mean look, as a kid I was a fan of DC Comics," said Ayer. "I read them, I love Batman. Batman was always my favorite superhero, and then to have him walk on my set one day was an incredible experience. Even my cynical, hard-bitten movie crew got quiet when that happened. And Ben's a great dude, he's a good guy to work with."
While speaking with the LA Times, Margot Robbie spoke about Harley Quinn's role as the manipulator of the Suicide Squad.
"She's definitely one of the more unpredictable members of the squad," Robbie said. "She also used to be a psychiatrist so she has an extensive knowledge of mental illnesses and how to manipulate people -- I'm sorry, well, she has a lot of knowledge on how to profile people, pick their triggers, and as Harley Quinn she kind of utilizes that to just manipulate people and mess with them. And she definitely does that with the squad. She's always picking someone to be dissecting and playing off and messing with."
