THE FLASH
During an appearance at New Jersey's Heroes and Villains Fan Fest, Robbie Amell teased that his upcoming "Flash" appearance as Earth-2's Deathstorm will prove fatal for a series regular.

"In episode 13, so in a couple weeks, you'll see me as Deathstorm, and Caitlin as Killer Frost," said Amell, as reported by ComicBook.com. "So I get to come back, and I kill a series regular. So there's that, I'm probably going to get in trouble for saying that."

ANT-MAN & THE WASP
"Ant-Man" co-writer Adam McKay talked to IGN about his possible involvement with "Ant-Man and the Wasp," saying that he's yet to be asked to help turn out a draft of the sequel. He did touch upon the idea of a solo Wasp film, though.

“Possibly. I think it all depends on this sequel and how the character plays. Certainly there’s a lot of female superheroes in the Marvel universe so I’m sure you’re going to see them start to spread out. They sort of started with their kind of bedrock characters from the 60s and the 70s and I think you saw more of an explosion of female characters happening in the 80s and then the 90s. X-Men obviously has great female characters, but that’d be interesting, a Wasp movie. I don’t know, that’d be very interesting. I always think of the two of them as kind of together -- they always were in the comics -- but why not. Sure.”

Amell also commented on the future of Oliver Queen's relationship with Felicity Smoak as season four continues, commenting on a detail seen in the flash-forward scenes.

"The fact is, Felicity is not wearing her ring in that flash forward scene, and that was not a mistake," Amell said at Fan Fest, as reported by ComicBook.com. "Spoiler alert, I probably mess it up."

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
While at Sundance for the premiere of his directorial debut "Miles Ahead," Don Cheadle spoke with Superhero Hype about his role as War Machine in "Captain America: Civil War."

“I never know what it’s going to be and they keep their cards very close to their breast with Marvel,” said Cheadle. “I never know where the character’s going to go, but he’s become more and more and in the next one, you’ll see that what happens to Rhodey is a little bit more intense and pivotal to what happens in the rest of the stories... I ultimately like it when we’re there and I’m working with other actors and it’s fun, but it can be very tedious. A lot of time you’re looking at a green screen and a tennis ball on a C-stand, and it could’t be more antithetical to doing what 'Miles Ahead' was, but you just give over to the elements and go, ‘Oh these are the toys and I’m playing with the biggest and best toys’ and we’re flying around and doing stuff that if I was ten years old, I would be having the greatest time in my life.”
