COMIC REEL: “Suicide Squad’s” Leto Reveals How He Honed His Joker Laugh; “Civil War’s” Markus Debunks Rumor

SUICIDE SQUAD

During an interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Jared Leto revealed how — and where — he developed his Joker laugh.

“I worked on the laugh like walking around the streets of New York and Toronto,” said Leto. “I kinda walked around the streets and see what laugh would kind of get under peoples’ skin. If you hear someone laugh loud at a restaurant it’s a little jarring. I tried them out and I got to a place where I would laugh and people would turn around like, ‘Who is this creepy guy behind me?'”

ARROW

Stephen Amell spoke about Laurel Lance’s final “Arrow” episode during an appearance on “Larry King Now,” on Ora TV. Asked by King whether the actor knew the last words uttered by Lance before her passing — which fans could not hear — Amell said that while he does know what she said, it will remain a surprise, per the wishes of series creator Greg Berlanti. When King followed up by asking “Any chance she’ll come back from the dead?” Amell responded with a simple “No.”

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

In a spoilery interview with Yahoo, screenwriter Christopher Markus discussed one of the more persistent rumors surrounding the film early on.

“We never really went into this with the intention of killing Cap,” said Markus. “One, because he doesn’t really die, so we weren’t going to do the time bullet [like in the comics]. And there are other movies coming, and it’s like, ‘Are you gonna kill him?’ And you get crap for fake-killing people. We fake-killed [Nick] Fury [in Winter Soldier] and it worked pretty well, but… At a certain point you’re lessening the gravity of the movie when you kill somebody, because people are like, ‘Oh now we’re in comic-book world because he’s gonna come back.’ So you get more gravity out really hurting somebody.”

“Captain America: Civil War” opened with the fifth-best opening weekend in domestic box office history, bringing in $181.8 million. Along with a $220 million take overseas in its second week of international release, the film’s worldwide gross stands at $678.39 million.

“The next one is set in the ’90s,” said Kinberg. Based on Kinberg’s comments, it’s not yet known if he’s referring to a new “X-Men” film or possibly one of the spinoffs that’s currently in production — specifically “New Mutants” or even “X-Force.”
