CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR
Sebastian Stan revealed in an interview with Collider that watching "Civil War" had a profound effect on him.

"I sat there and basically there was a bowl of candy and fruit and gum in front of me and then there were sparkling waters," he explained of his office screening of the film, "and I basically sat on the edge of my couch the entire time and ate through the entire bowl of candy. I was overly stimulated with this movie, which I’m so proud to be in because everyone is fucking awesome in it. Everyone is fucking fantastic. I walked out of it speechless, and I worked on the movie and I was there! I walked out of there and I had back pain from leaning.”

SUPERGIRL
The "Supergirl" cast and crew took part in a PaleyFest panel over the weekend. Deadline has a rundown of the events, which saw the crew talk about the show's feminist themes.

"I have two girls, and right before taking this job my husband was really challenging me in the sense of like ‘think about what this opportunity is and think about what it means to you and look at our little girls and if you don’t have a resounding yes [about being on Supergirl] then you’re crazy," said Chyler Leigh, who plays Alex Danvers. "For little girls, there’s so much on TV that is influential especially towards the younger ages. To be a part of something that’s telling a very powerful story in many different ways from many different perspectives, especially from a women’s standpoint but also from little girl’s standpoint … is rewarding.”

Executive producer Ali Adler added, “And that’s not just confined to little girls or women. I think the most exciting thing for me is the feeling that everyone feeling the strength of Supergirl regardless of gender.”

In response to a question, Jeremy Jordan suggested that his character Winn Schott should be gay. While EP Greg Berlanti said "there’s no immediate plans" to add an LGBT character to the cast, he acknowledged that "these shows work best when they really reflect our entire society. We always want to keep adding to the characters and the cast and adding people so that everyone can watch the show and see some piece of themselves. I think what’s really always rewarding is when people watch the show and see some piece of themselves in a character that they wouldn’t think they’d have that much in common with.”

THE WALKING DEAD
You can read a recap of last night's episode right here. AMC has also released a clip and promo for next week's episode, "Twice As Far."

Variety has an interview with Melissa McBride about Carol's role in last night's episode. McBride spoke about Carol and Daryl's reunion scene in the episode.

"I imagine it’s been difficult for both [Carol and Daryl]," said McBride of their separation. "If Carol is trying to create this happy homemaker image with the sweaters -- I’m certain that they’re still bonded at the hip, because they’ve been through so much together and they have a common history -- but it’s hard for him to see her like that. And it’s hard for her to be like that with him looking. I can’t speak for Daryl but I would imagine it’s very difficult, and yet they’ve always had an unspoken understanding and it’s still there for sure."
