CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
As spotted by CBM, Sebastian Stan replied to a fan's question on Instagram asking the actor what Bucky keeps in his backpack. Stan replied, writing:

Dead Cole, in his backpack there are a dozen notebooks that compose the scattered memories dating back to as far as he can remember which somewhat piece together a scattered life. In a similar way to Alzheimer's, he's written things down, for fear of losing his memory again. He was prepared, were something to happen, to walk away with nothing but that backpack, which is why it's the only thing he takes and knowing full well that not everything those pages contain is pretty. I hope everything is well with you too!

Almost a dozen new character promotional images for "Civil War" have emerged online.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
While speaking with Insing Movies, Henry Cavill spoke to the inspiration for his take on Clark Kent.

"It's more the Clark Kent from the comic books as opposed to the Richard Donner/Christopher Reeve version of Clark Kent. While that character is very much beloved, I feel this Clark is more in line with that -- who's a journalist, a reporter. There's less of that light touch; less of that comedic touch to his performance."

Lori Petty spoke with CBR about her appearance on "Gotham" and creating the character of Jeri.

"Oh, it was just a blast creating her," said Petty. "That was the producers and makeup department. It was so much fun. I was still filming 'Orange is the New Black' when I did 'Gotham.' To go from six months of wearing no makeup at all -- they even try to make you look worse than you actually look in real life -- to go from that to having Emmy Award-winning makeup artists making this beautiful character, I loved it. It took a whole day for everybody to decide on her costume and her look. It's really intricate. It took three people to put me in that outfit every time.

MARVEL TELEVISION
While speaking with IGN, "Civil War" producer Nate Moore spoke about Marvel's TV shows and films and how their scheduling poses a problem when it comes to crossovers.

“I think it’s possible for sure," said Moore. "It’s interesting that the TV timeline and the film timeline moves so differently because they tell stories so quickly because they have 10 to 22 episodes... Sometimes it’s just hard for those things to line up perfectly, but we love that idea of ultimately, say, a Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Punisher, Agents of SHIELD… Maybe there’s a way to get ‘em back in there as long as it makes sense for our storytelling and doesn’t prohibit them from telling a story.”
