The LA Times has a description of a new "Civil War" scene. The footage was screened at the company's annual shareholder meeting.

The clip started off with a car chase featuring a motorcycle and a black Audi SUV. The chase involved Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie). They pursued each other through a tunnel, which became engulfed in explosions generated by the skirmish.

Eventually, the characters emerged from the tunnel, only to be met by War Machine (Don Cheadle). It appeared as though he was on the scene to detain Captain America.

"Stand down now," War Machine angrily told the captain. "Congratulations, Cap, you’re a criminal.”

Black Panther then intervened, baring his metal claws and ripping off his mask to reveal his identity.

Entertainment Weekly writer Anthony Breznican shared his thoughts and takeaways from his screening of "Batman v Superman."

While chatting with EW, Gal Gadot spoke about why she's so proud to bring Wonder Woman to life on film.

“Most of the movies, the men are in charge, the men are the most powerful ones. You’ve had Superman and Batman and everyone, but Wonder Woman was never there,” said Gadot. “I’m so happy when [my daughter] grows up she’s going to see a female figure she can be inspired by.”

A new image of Batman and Superman in conflict has also been released.

"Fear" showrunner Dave Erickson spoke with Variety about what lies ahead for the show as it hits open water, saying that the show won't be “'The Love Boat' with zombies."

"We’re not gonna be stopping at different ports of call," he told Variety. "We will have a mixture of land and sea, but it will be a while before we land on a specific destination, and that’ll be part of the tension at the beginning part of the season. And the other thing is, The Abigail with a full tank of gas – which it has – can go a considerable distance. So the reality is, we could go back to Vancouver if we wanted to – or we could go to Hawaii or South America; it really opens things up in an interesting way."

The article came paired with new key art for the season.

While we're getting glimpses of Justice League members Cyborg, the Flash and Aquaman in "Batman v Superman," we're not going to get a good look at Green Lantern for some time, according to President of Creative Development Greg Silverman. Silverman revealed to EW that the character(s) won't appear until "Justice League: Part Two" -- maybe.

"Every beat of the movie is not yet worked out. So there’s the possibility that he may or may not be in 'Justice League 2,'" said Silverman. "For now, we felt that we were introducing enough characters that the best possible place we could put Green Lantern is some introduction in 'Justice League 2,' or barring that, a movie after... [Green Lantern] is an incredible character. He's actually multiple incredible characters. There's real opportunity there."
