Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have talked a bit about "Infinity War" during the "Civil War" press tours. First, they talked about how the structure of "Civil War" could influence the next "Avengers" film.

"In the same way that in 'Civil War' not everyone has the same amount of scenes or lines, I think that you can assume that -- with so many characters -- we'll have to be as rigorous," said McFeely. "We'll say, well, these people will have larger stories and these people will have smaller stories and hopefully they can flip in some cases. I know of a few right off the top of my head that have a small part here and a bigger part there."

"The people in the background in one might come to the foreground in the second one," Markus added. "There will be moments where every last damn person who's still alive will be in the same room, and they're just a nightmare to write because Marvel is very good about hiring good actors."

Directors Joe and Anthony Russo also spoke with Sky Movies about how these two films factor into the larger MCU.

"'Civil War' was a good warm up for us in terms of the storytelling for 'Infinity War,' because we were dealing with such a large number of characters," said co-director Anthony Russo.

"The approach to those movies is that they are culmination films. They are going to culminate everything that has come before them, any Marvel movie up until this point. It's really banding together all of the characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to face this threat together," Joe Russo said.

Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely spoke to Mashable about the early drafts of "Civil War," which included both Hank Pym and the Wasp.

"There was one not very good draft where Hank Pym shows up," said Markus, which got a big, knowing laugh from McFeely.

"I forgot about that," said McFeely. "We won't speculate on what Hank Pym did, but he wasn't as helpful as he needed to be."

Paul Bettany also spoke to EW about Vision's relationship with Scarlet Witch in "Civil War."

"I think he has a real connection with Scarlet Witch," said Bettany. "They both have these new burgeoning powers that they don't understand, and they don't know how powerful they are, and that must be kind of scary. And so I think he's worried that they're both dangerous. So he feels this real connection with her. And she's a bit of a depressive at the moment so he's just trying to cook for her."

Upcoming "Flash" director Kevin Smith spoke to ComicBook.com about his upcoming episode of the CW series, which he calls a sequel of sorts to the season one finale.


You can read a recap of last night's "Gotham" right here on CBR. There's also a promo for next week's ep, "Legion of Horribles."

A batch of photos from the episode have also been released.


In a recent Q&A session with fans, writer/director James Gunn once again confirmed that there will be no human characters in the sequel. The comment came after someone asked if Deadpool could appear in the film. Gunn firstly stated that it wouldn't happen because Deadpool's film rights aren't owned by Marvel Studios, and then said that "also there are no humans in Guardians Volume 2, basically. No main characters."

Syfy has ordered the pilot for "Krypton," the sci-fi drama from David S. Goyer that centers on Superman's grandfather. Goyer, who wrote the pilot with Ian Goldberg, is set to executive produce.

Hailing from Warner Horizon Television, the "Krypton" pilot will be directed and co-executive produced by Colm McCarthy ("Peaky Blinders"). "Sleepy Hollow" veteran Damian Kindler will serve as showrunner.


IDW Entertainment has announced plans to develop "Locke & Key" for television. Joe Hill is on board to write the pilot and executive produce.

"I love this story," Hill said in a statement. "The seven years I spent working on 'Locke & Key' was the happiest creative experience of my life and there still isn't a day when I don't think about those characters and miss visiting with them. The six books of the series are very like six seasons of a cable TV series and so it feels only natural to bring that world to the little screen and to see if we can't scare the pants off viewers everywhere."

Ted Adams and David Ozer of IDW Entertainment, and David Alpert and Rick Jacobs of Circle of Confusion ("The Walking Dead") will serve as executive producers alongside Hill.


A new trailer and poster has been released by Entertainment Weekly for Cinemax's "Outcast."


During a press junket interview with Collider, producer Simon Kinberg revealed that "Wolverine 3" has started filming. "It's a very radical, bold, different Wolverine than you've ever seen in any of these movies," said Kinberg.

On the topic of Stewart, Kinberg said, "I'm not sure what I'm allowed to say about that. I will agree with you that Patrick Stewart was rumored to be a part of that film." He was a little more firm about when the film is set. "It takes place in the future, and as you and others have reported, it is an R-rated movie. It's violent, it's kind of like a Western in its tone. It's just a very cool, different film."
