Universal’s Creature from the Black Lagoon gets a writer. Spider-Man may have two different costumes in Civil War. Legends of Tomorrow can’t use comics character Booster Gold. Plus, Chloe Bennet teases Skye’s transformation on Agents of SHIELD—and could we get a Hannibal movie? Spoilers Now!
Captain America: Civil War
Both Comicbook.com and Heroic Hollywood are reporting rumors from unnamed sources—Morning-Spoilers-branded salt shakers at the ready!—about Spider-Man’s costume in the film. Comic Book reports that Spider-Man’s main costume is a faithful rendition of the classic red-and-blue suit from the comics, with a sort of detailing akin to the stylistic choices made for Captain America’s movie costumes.
Meanwhile, Heroic Hollywood adds that Spider-Man will actually have two costumes in Civil War: Spider-Man will begin with a “home-made” costume, less slick in its design (similar to the approach taken in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man), before meeting Tony Stark and getting an “official” spider-suit in his classic colors.
Head on over to Coming Soon to see several pictures from filming in Berlin, featuring Chris Evans and Anthony Mackie going incognito out of their superhero getups.

Here’s an officially released video of B-Roll from filming the movie—several scenes not included in the movie are included, including a scene with what appears to be some form of the team’s Fantasticar from the comics. [CBR]
The Hateful Eight

Another day, another behind the scenes image posted on Bryan Singer’s Instagram. This time, Singer notes it’s filming for a scene featuring Angel in a “Fight Club” located in Berlin circa 1982.
The show is allegedly casting General Sam Lane—father of Lois and the recently cast Lucy Lane—DC hero Red Tornado, and Kryptonian villain Non for future appearances in the series. [CBR]
Speaking during the Television Critics Association press tour—via USA Today writer Gary Levin—CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler has confirmed that Supergirl will absolutely not cross over with the CW’s DC shows. However, adverts for Flash and Arrow will run during Supergirl, and vice versa for shows on the CW.
Meanwhile, also at the TCA, Geoff Johns said we won’t ever be seeing Superman on screen in this show:
He will be a back-burnered life... He will be a factor in her life, but you won’t see him exactly on screen; he’ll be in the background but he does play a part in her evolution.
And Johns said they may decide to create the illusion that the Superman on the show is the same character you see in the films—although he wouldn’t answer one way or the other whether this show takes place in the same universe as Batman v Superman.
Meanwhile, though, Calista Flockhart, who plays Supergirl’s boss on the show, said she’s pitched a storyline where her character becomes romantically involved with Superman. [Hollywood Reporter and HitFix]
Bryan Fuller briefly teases that the production is considering a feature film to tie the series together now that is has been cancelled:
We’re canceled on NBC, but we are still looking at some possibilities, including the possibility of a feature. Hopefully, we’ll find a way to bring it back to you.
Parker Young has been cast in a new role for the show—not a character from the comics. Young will play Alex Davis, a consultant who works for Oliver who eventually becomes a new romantic interest for Thea. [TV Line]
True Blood’s Rutina Wesley has been cast in an undisclosed, multi-episode role, according to The Wrap.
Grace Zabriskie and Brent Spiner have joined the cast of Cinemax’s adaptation of the supernatural comic from The Walking Dead’s Rob Kirkman. Zabriskie will play Mildred, “one of the old guard of parishioners at Anderson’s church”, while Spiner will play the sinister Sidney, who “appears in Rome soon after Kyle and Reverend Anderson successfully exorcise little Joshua Austin, his dapper appearance and smiling demeanor hide a malevolence.” [TV Line]
DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow
Showrunner Phil Klemmer says that time-travelling comics character Booster Gold will not appear in the show—but implies this is because there are potential plans for a movie appearance for the character:
I wish I could tease a Booster thing but, you might have to wait a good long while at least on our show. Perhaps Booster is being groomed for bigger things.
TV Line asks if you can bear the tension of the team coming face-to-face with some hostile bears in the sewers of Paris, in an exclusive clip from the next episode.
Agents Of SHIELD
Luke Mitchell teases Lincoln’s tumultuous relationship with SHIELD:
I think he’s in the gray area. Don’t take this the wrong way, but I think he’s dangerous in the sense that they don’t know whether they can trust him, and I don’t think he knows what to trust. So I think it’s rocky. I think their relationship is rocky. S.H.I.E.L.D. needs to play their cards right, and Lincoln needs to work things out pretty quick and smart, yeah. I’m going to cut myself off before I say too much.
Meanwhile, Chloe Bennet says that Skye’s transformation into Daisy Johnson will come with a costume update:
Something that’s very difficult to go to the bathroom in. They like to limit me from going to the bathroom as much as possible on the show. It’s a really cool outfit. I hope fans of Daisy Johnson and Quake are pretty happy with it because we tried to do a nice blend of TV version and comic book version.
