Comic Vine has an interview with Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope Van Dyne in "Ant-Man." The actress revealed that she just wrapped filming, even though the movie will be shooting for the next month. She also talked about what it was like working with Marvel Studios.

"I've had such a wonderful experience," said Lilly. "Marvel Studios has shocked the pants off me. I really expected to be walking into a great big machine that would be so well oiled and anybody new with new ideas or new contributions would just be a pain in the butt. Marvel could not have been more opposite to those expectations. They've been collaborative in a way that makes me feel like -- and I know you're going to say this is bull crap but it's totally true -- in a way that makes me feel like I was working on a little indie project. I mean, it was that intimate and that collaborative. I just had a wonderful experience."

Deadline has reported that FX is currently working on adapting the Jack the Ripper graphic novel into a drama series. Originally written by Alan Moore with art by Eddie Campbell, the new "From Hell" adaptation comes from producer Don Murphy -- who produced the graphic novel's 2001 film adaptation -- and "Children of Men" screenwriter David Arata.


You can check out our recap of last night's episode, "Harvey Dent," over on Spinoff. Fox has released a trailer for next week's fall finale, the ominously titled "LoveCraft." While there are no Cthulhu homages in the clip, it does feature terrifying home invaders and a lot of shouting.

Nicholas D'Agosto returns next week as Harvey Dent, and Collider has posted a new interview with the actor. Below, D'Agosto talks about how he handled playing the future Two-Face.

"One of the things that I did, in the very short amount of time I had to do research, and one of the through-lines that I thought was something I could hold onto for my version of Harvey Dent, was focus on this recurring piece of information that he speaks of his childhood as being abusive," said D'Agosto. "He had some psychotic episodes, as a young kid. The psychological and physical abuse he suffered from his dad drove him to eradicate that type of behavior around him, but it also left him walking a little too close to the edge of sanity. I thought that really latched into what I found was the Harvey Dent written on the page for me. At the end of the day, an actor has to just play what's in front of him. As much as I'd like to bring in as many aspects of Harvey Dent as have come in other iterations of the franchise, at the end of the day, I have to play the scene. The great thing is that there is foreshadowing of mental instability, where ambition may move into behavior that's too dark for Harvey. They're quick and short, at the beginning, when you meet him, but that element that I spoke about is something that really helped me play that edge."
