COMIC REEL: "Suicide Squad's" Delevingne Talks Enchantress' Two Sides; Renner, Stan Drop "Civil War" Hints


While appearing on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," Cara Delevingne spoke about the audition process she underwent in order to land the role of Enchantress,

"The part I'm playing, I'm actually playing two different parts," said Delevingne. "It's like an actresses' dream. I'm playing opposites a mousy kind of scientist and then a crazy, feral witch -- which is great. They're both sides of my personality, so that's nice. I went in and auditioned before there was even a script. I think I was one of the first people David Ayer, the director, actually cast. But I ended up just doing a monologue from 'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'... Very superhero-y."

After teasing a haircut via Instagram, People grabbed the scoop on what Chloe Bennet looks like after her comic book-inspired makeover. Bennet, who plays Skye/Daisy "Quake" Johnson on the show, now has shorter hair -- although not quite as short as her character's comic look.

"The comic book version of Daisy Johnson has very short, Miley Cyrus-esque hair," said Bennet. "We wanted to stay true to the comic book character fans love; I wanted to please them but also make sure there was still some movement and length and sexiness in the hair."


While talking to Access Hollywood, "Arrow" EP Marc Guggenheim spoke about what new villain Damien Darhk (played by Neal McDonough) brings to the show.

"Damien's a different kind of villain than we've had on the show before," said Guggenheim. "He's not as centurion as Ra's, he's not as looney tune as Slade, he's not as -- and people will be surprised I use this word -- but he's not as noble as Malcolm Merlyn. He's pure evil. We wanted someone who was truly, truly malevolent. We've never done that on the show before. All of our big bads always thought they were doing... the wrong thing for the right reason. This guy does the wrong thing for the wrong reasons."

Empire has unleashed three new stills from the feature film. The new images show off three of the movies major characters -- Henry Cavill's Superman, Ben Affleck's Batman and Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor -- standing next to major aspects pulled from DC Comics iconography. Batman can be seen in his fully-armored Bat-Suit standing next to the Bat-Signal. Eisenberg's young Lex Luthor is standing underneath the film's version of the LexCorp Industries logo in what looks like it could be his massive, Silicon Valley-esque headquarters. Lastly, Superman appears to be lurking through the burned-out remains of Wayne Manor.


During a chat with Screen Rant, Jeremy Renner teased a little of what's in store for Hawkeye in "Civil War."

"It's more active," said Renner. "A lot of fun stuff happening in that one. I can't speak too much for it. They're still filming that sucker right now. But yeah, there's a lot of stuff happening in that one physically for me anyway. Then who knows in the future? I don't know what's going to happen."

Sebastian Stan also had similarly vague comments about the film, which he shared with Buzzfeed during -- spoiler alert -- a conversation about the "Civil War" scene used as a post-credits bit for "Ant-Man."

"I think [what Bucky was caught in was] more of a vise," said Stan, referring to what was holding the Winter Soldier down in the scene. "But it would never happen at his own hand, by his own doing... In terms of that scene in 'Ant-Man,' I've seen some of the ideas people have about it and I would just say that whatever you're seeing on the surface, it's not as obvious as that. There might be a whole lot more to the scene. I would say someone would probably want to put him in a vise."

Empire has released some pics from "Deadpool," a 20th Century Fox movie starring Ryan Reynolds as the titular mercenary. The images show Deadpool with two of the film's leading ladies: Morena Baccarin's Vanessa and Brianna Hildebrand's Negasonic Teenage Warhead. The third image shows Deadpool doing one of the things he does best -- looking badass while holding two swords.


Variety has reported that there is quite a bit of truth to the rumor that Marvel is eyeing Rachel McAdams to take the female lead role in "Doctor Strange." Variety also noted that it's not known whether an offer has been made, and that McAdams recently told the LA Times that she was in early talks with the studio.

"It's still super-early days, and I don't know where that's gonna go, if it's gonna go anywhere at all," said McAdams.

A new featurette for the "Fantastic Four" reboot shows a bit more of the interplay between the classic quartet, including a moment of in-fighting between Human Torch and Thing.

ComicBookMovie has also posted a picture of a "Fantastic Four" billboard spotted in Los Angeles that depicts Michael B. Jordan's Johnny Storm appearing to burst through it while on fire.


A new photograph published to Bryan Singer's Instagram feed shows the director standing at the foot of a giant statue of Anubis, an Egyptian deity associated with the afterlife. In true throwback fashion, Singer tagged the pic "#notallgreenscreen," pointing out that "Apocalypse" will utilize both practical and digital sets in order to bring the epic to life.
