COMIC REEL: "Suicide Squad's" Courtney Confirms Reshoots; Alexander Unsure Of "Thor: Ragnarok" Involvement


Regarding the "Suicide Squad" reshoots that are currently underway, Jai Courtney explained to ET what the film hopes to accomplish with them.

"I think there's plenty of [humor] in ['Suicide Squad']," said Courtney, as transcribed by Collider. "I wouldn't say we're going back to make it funnier, there's some additional action stuff that we've been doing, which is pretty dope. Really we're just kind of adding in that sense.

You can read a recap of last night's "Arrow," "11:59," right here. There's also a promo for next week's episode.

Spoilers ahead for last night's episode, which revealed the identity of the person in the grave. The show's executive producers and cast spoke with members of the press following a screening of yesterday's episode. Marc Guggenheim spoke about what it feels like to write Laurel Lance out of the show and what lies ahead for her.

"Not getting a chance to work with Katie, day in and day out, is tempered by the fact that we now live in a universe where there's resurrection, parallel Earths, time travel and flashbacks. We have all these different ways of keeping Katie in the Arrow-verse family," said Guggenheim. "In fact, you will see her on an episode of 'The Flash'" playing the Earth-2 version of Laurel Lance. Katie is reprising her role as Laurel in Earth-1 to be in 'Vixen' Season Two. Death does not mean goodbye, on any of these shows, but we've made a creative choice and we're sticking to it. We recognize that Black Canary and Laurel have an incredibly loyal fan base, and Katie has an incredibly loyal fan base, but the show has never been just about the comic book history or just about one or two particular fan bases. We make the creative choices we feel benefit the show as a whole, and the story that we're telling overall."

While talking to Entertainment Weekly, Colman Domingo addressed the criticisms of Season 1's slow pacing, saying the show will definitely move faster in Season 2:

"We have a whole lot of new characters coming in, a lot of guests. And also, I know that the biggest comment of last season was that the pacing was very slow because it was building character and relationships and family. But now, when I tell you it is amped up, every episode is epic. I swear to you. Every time I open up an episode, I'm like, 'Are you kidding? Are we going to do all that? We're going to shoot all that in eight days?' There's so much going on, because here we are in the middle of this apocalypse, and we've got to go. It's go, go, go, go, go, go, and there are enormous changes and shifts in character, personality, very quickly."
