COMIC REEL: "The Crow" Reboot In Danger Of Losing Director; Eisenberg Praises Sophisticated "BvS" Script


The Wrap has heard that the long in-development and beleaguered "Crow" reboot is now in danger of losing it's director, Corin Hardy. The development was revealed by producer Edward R. Pressman and comes as a result of the movie's studio, Relativity Media, filing for bankruptcy. Relativity will lose the film rights to the Crow, and they'll revert to Pressman, if a movie does not begin principal photography in the next 18 months. The film is also currently without a star as Jack Huston left the project in June.


In an interview with CBR, Clark Gregg talked about how Coulson has grown over the seasons.

"[A]fter doing two full seasons of this, I really thought the main thing I was going to be dealing with last year was Hydra, and the fact that Coulson was carving stuff late at night because of his alien blood -- I didn't see a shadow S.H.I.E.L.D. trying to take him out coming," said Gregg. "So far he's dealing with Inhumans; on his team, and out in the world. And the fact that he's got one less hand than he started last season with. I have no idea what else is coming his way. I hope that for the moment, S.H.I.E.L.D. itself is a fairly cohesive unit -- although one of the things you discover right away is that there's another super-secret organization out there hunting down Inhumans, led by the amazing Constance Zimmer, and it's hard to tell if they're good or bad, right out of the gate. It's a complicated job."

While talking to The Robot's Voice, Jason Momoa teased that his Aquaman suit might have a splash of color.

"Well, there might be some bit of orange and green," said Momoa. "A bit of respect to prior work, but I think he is meaner now and upset -- look at what has been done to our oceans. That's his world that has been polluted."

His "BvS" co-star Jesse Eisenberg also spoke to We Got This Covered at a press event and talked about the film's themes.

"Since everyone here is obviously interested in writing in some capacity, I'll tell you that the man who wrote the movie, Chris Terrio, is absolutely phenomenal," said Eisenberg. "He also wrote 'Argo.' He's such a brilliant guy, so well read. He's interested in very sophisticated topics and discussions. So in 'Batman V Superman,' even though it's a superhero movie, people who don't necessarily see films in that genre, like this crowd, will probably enjoy it. It discusses some very sophisticated and important themes."

TV Insider has a new picture from "Gotham's" upcoming second season two episode, which shows Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) meeting with the Galavan Siblings (Jessica Lucas and James Frain).


ComicBook.com learned that Peter Francis James will play a new character on the show, one with ties to Hawkman and Hawkgirl. His name is Dr. Aldus Boardman, and he's described as "a Classics professor at St. Roch University, who has devoted his life to researching the story of Chayara (Hawkgirl) and Prince Khufu (Hawkman) and their link to Vandal Savage. Professor Boardman is our team's only hope of finding Vandal and destroying him, so they can return home. But when the Legends learn a secret about Boardman, they insist on making him a part of their journey, only to learn the kind of sacrifice it will take to save the world."

While speaking with Collider, Hugh Jackman opened up a little more about the plot of "Wolverine 3."

"I'll be really honest with you, the actual script in its full form we're up to about Page 60," he shared. "Obviously there's a treatment, so it's not fully done yet, we're not fully there. Patrick does figure in it that's for sure. I think it's a really important relationship but I want to see signs of that quasi-father/son sort of relationship that has not been seen before, and sides of particularly Professor X that have not been seen before. So we have some really, really cool ideas."

"The ultimate plan is let's start shooting next year," he continued. "I'm starting the training, I'm starting the eating and mentally really preparing for it. It's not just me, the studio as well -- I'm trying to do something with this that's a little special, a little different. I've got a very, very strong idea of what that is. I really have known for quite a long time how I want to finish this sort of odyssey that I've been on, this amazing journey. And I won't let it fall anywhere in between. I won't fall short of it."

Jason Fuchs, the man rumored to be one of the final contenders to pen the script for "Wonder Woman," may not have confirmed his gig in an interview Collider, but he did speak -- as a fan -- about the differences between DC's unfolding cinematic universe and the other ones out there.

"I am very, very happy that that DC Cinematic Universe is finally being fleshed out," said Fuchs. "I don't think it's any secret that people who have seen the 'Batman v Superman' trailer, the 'Suicide Squad' trailer can see that this is a very different cinematic universe than the one that Marvel has constructed over at Disney, or the one that Simon Kinberg and company have constructed with X-Men over at Fox. It's a really specific, grand, slightly darker, slightly grittier place. As a fan of those comic books, a fan of those movies, I'm excited to see where it goes next."
