COMIC REEL: Will Smith Says Leto Went "All In" For Joker; Funny Felicity Returns In "Arrow" Season 4


During an appearance on Monday's Beats 1 radio show, Will Smith talked to host Zane Lowe about his experience on set with Jared Leto.

"I have never actually met Jared Leto," said Smith, as transcribed by ComicBook.com. "So we worked together for six months and we've never exchanged a word outside of 'action' and 'cut.' We've never said, 'hello.' We've never said, 'good day.' I've only ever spoken to him as Deadshot and him as The Joker. I literally have not met him yet ... No, not a single word exchanged off camera. He was all in on the Joker."

You can watch Smith's comments starting at 15:45 below.

Marvel has released a clip from tonight's "S.H.I.E.L.D." episode, "Purpose in the Machine."

TV Line has a tease of tonight's episode, too.

"You will get some answers about Jemma's otherworldly predicament this Tuesday, though I must warn you: The episode's cold open, which is set a long time ago, will leave you fearing the very worst for Fitz's "lost" love," writes Matt Webb Mitovich. "Also in the surprisingly eventful Week 2: Ward kicks a whole lotta ass and you will learn what skill May excelled at when she was a young girl. Any guesses?"

EP Wendy Mericle spoke to TV Guide about the relationship between the Lance sisters and what we'll see on "Arrow."

"We're excited because the series started with the whole triangle of Oliver and Sara and Laurel," Mericle said. "And with Sara coming back and then moving on to go on her own journey, we have the potential to change the dynamic there in a really positive way for Laurel. [We] kind of put the past to rest."

TV Line also heard from EP Marc Guggenheim that funny Felicity will be back "with a vengeance."

"[Emily Bett Rickards is] on the top of her game," said Guggenheim. "She's hysterical. We're definitely writing jokes for her, but she's also finding humor in lines that weren't intentionally humorous."

While speaking with USA Today, Elizabeth Olsen talked about her part in "Civil War." She said that Wanda Maximoff is "coming into her own and starting to understand and have conflict with how she wants to use her abilities... It's a dramatic conflict within her and obviously there's conflict within the [Avengers] as well. I like that they didn't release Scarlet Witch in the promo photos for the teams -- it places her as being a wild card, and I like her having that kind of edge that people don't know what she's capable of. They can fear her because she is so incredibly powerful in a different way than the rest of the heroes for the most part. I like playing that role within the gang."

The Hollywood Reporter has a chat with "Fear" showrunner David Erickson about season two of the show, which he revealed will at least partly take place on the sea.

"There will be quite a bit of action on the seas -- and we'll split it between land and water," Erickson told The Hollywood Reporter. "But it's going to be an interesting dynamic... My understanding is that walkers can't swim. The Governor (David Morrissey on 'The Walking Dead') killed somebody and tossed him into the lake. You see the walker underwater, he's submerged and is trying to get up. I think there was something weighing him down so he couldn't float. I have to confirm this with ['Fear' co-creator] Robert [Kirkman] but walkers can't swim -- I'm sure they'd eventually bloat."

You can check out a recap of last night's episode, "The Last Laugh," over on Spinoff. There's also a preview for next week's episode, titled "Strike Force."

TV Line also has a spoilery interview with Cameron Monaghan about last night's episode, specifically the place his Jereome fits in with the Joker mythology. "I think he's the Joker in that he represents the idea, the greater concept. And somewhere, some kid or some person watched [his videos/the news coverage] and it burrowed into their mind, and one day it will snap and take them over. The idea of this person will possess someone completely new. So, I love that idea -- something about it really is chilling and excited me when I read the episode."

Showrunner Bruno Heller also talked about Jerome's demise in an interview with Deadline, saying that it does connect to the Joker origin. "The creation of the Joker is a larger and more epic story than people realize, and this show is very much about kind of the deep, secret history," Heller told Deadline. "So, as the show rolls on, people will see how a mythology is born, how a kind of cultural mien is created that will lead us to the Joker himself."
