COMIC REEL: "Suicide Squad's" Davis Reveals Contract Details; "Gotham's" Villains Talk Season 2

SUICIDE SQUAD

While speaking to the New York Times, Viola Davis revealed details about her contract.

BLADE

Bleeding Cool reported on a rumor regarding a new "Blade" film, which has started gaining momentum online. The rumor, which comes from an unnamed source, states that Marvel's new "Blade" series has been stalled because higher-ups see big screen potential in the new female-led comic. CBR reached out to Marvel, who declined to comment on the rumor.

DAREDEVIL

A new video has been released that goes behind the scenes of "Daredevil's" season one visual effects.

GOTHAM

In an interview with ComicBook.com, Camren Bicondova spoke about what awaits Selina Kyle in season two of "Gotham."

"It's really exciting getting to actually interact with people, because Selina is usually on her own, doing her own thing," said Bicondova. "[It's] really fun getting to interact with the 'Gotham' family!"

She continued: "You get to feel different things when you're acting with people, versus when you're on your own. I'm getting to dig deep into these emotions that I've never felt while playing Selina Kyle. I'm usually just observing or in the shadows. So it's really interesting getting to do that now."

CB.com also spoke with newcomers Jessica Lucas and James Frain, who play siblings Tabitha and Theo Galavan.

"I think we decided pretty early on to make it as normal a sibling relationship as possible, because everything else in our world is totally crazy," said Frain. "Everything about these 'Gotham' citizens is 'performance.' It seems like when we're together, it's just pure brother and sister sibling interactions. We could be just a couple of ten year olds, in all honesty. Actually, it's the most normal relationship I have in the whole story!"

"Yeah, I think there's a strong loyalty between them," added Lucas, "but I think Tabitha is also annoyed by Theo a lot. She's carrying out his bidding, so there's a lot of eye rolling and annoyance; she finds him boring sometimes, things like that."

Collider spoke with executive producer Danny Cannon about the upcoming second season and learned more about the show's new structure.

"The one thing that's easier is that we're not establishing the world," said Cannon. "Luckily, that world was accepted as a reality of its own, so we have the confidence that we're standing on the correct foundations that we built in season one. I think what's harder about it is that our ambitions are higher. We've created a saga in season two and are splitting the saga into two pieces. Rather than telling so many different stories and treat them as individual stories, it's 22 episodes of one story. Therefore, it's a lot harder to break because we want to organically weave in a lot of origin stories into this one main story. It's very complex."

Returns September 21 on Fox

MAN OF STEEL 2

Another rumor is making the rounds online, this one focusing on the sequel to "Man of Steel." Den of Geek has heard from one unnamed source that the sequel is now on "permanent hold." The rumor goes seemingly hand in hand with an earlier rumor that "Mad Max" director George Miller was being eyed for a future DC project -- possibly "Man of Steel 2." Warner Bros. declined comment on this story when reached by CBR News, though an industry insider has shared information with CBR that casts doubt on the rumor.

SUPERGIRL is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El, Superman's (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents' help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later, at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant. She works alongside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott and famous photographer James Olsen, who Grant just hired away from the Daily Planet to serve as her new art director. However, Kara's days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw, head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime.
