Thor:

Marvel and Paramount released an updated synopsis for this film, which gives a few more hints about just why Thor is banished to Earth, as well as what follows him here:

At the center of the story is the mighty Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful but arrogant warrior whose reckless actions reignite an ancient war. Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It's while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth.

Source Code:

Duncan Jones' second movie has a pretty complicated plot, says co-star Vera Farmiga. And she says that even though there's a lot of action in the movie, her part of it is pretty "static." (Previous reports described her character as a "hands-on" communications expert who guides Jake Gyllenhaal's actions as he relives a train bombing over and over again.) [MTV]

Kick-Ass:

Some new posters look like art we've already seen, but with a splashy new design. [CinemaBlend]

Doctor Who:

It seems like this show is filming episodes 7 (the Amy-only episode) and 11 (the Doctor-only episode) simultaneously. The Amy episode still involves her being pregnant and chased by old people, and her boyfriend Rory is around somewhere. Also, there's a posh man in a black coat. The old people include a West Indian guy and Santa.There's a big prop knife.

Meanwhile, it looks like episode 11, where the Doctor is stranded without his TARDIS, does end with the TARDIS reappearing, and Amy is holding up a plate with a fish on it. (No idea why.) Also, the front door of the house where the Doctor is staying has been replaced — the newer door is wider, to let the Doctor's shopping cart through, but also has a catflap (and cats may feature in this episode. Note that the season opener apparently involves an alien dog.) There's a sequence where the Doctor, James Corden, and Daisy run out of the house and look back at it to see something strange happening, which only they can see. Oh, and there's speculation that the TARDIS kicking the Doctor out means the "big bad" of the season is actually an evil facsimile of the TARDIS, which has somehow replaced the "real" TARDIS.

Meanwhile, producer Piers Wenger and others showed off the Doctor's new sonic screwdriver at an event in Cardiff. Photos by Alun_Vega, Claire-Elizabeth, TimeBoy, Vashta Nerada and others. [GallifreyBase and BlogtorWho]

Supernatural:

Apparently there was a rumor that we'd be seeing Jo, Ruby and Bela in the 100th episode, airing April 15. But a source tells E! Online that there will be "no special people" in that episode. [E! Online]

The season finale will air on May 13, according to the CW. [SpoilerTV]

FlashForward:

Here's what happens in episode 13, "Blowback":

Aaron delves deeper into why the black-ops Jericho unit is after his daughter, Mark continues to question Lloyd about a phone conversation that took place during their flashforwards, and Zoey tries everything in her power to change Demetri's fate.

Stargate Universe:

Canadians don't just get socialized healthcare, they also get exclusive clips from the second half of the first season in their SGU trailer:

Smallville:

Details of Erica Durance's contract for season ten are still up in the air, but chances are we'll be seeing more of Lois next year. And it's still undecided whether Chloe will be back at all. (You know what that show really needs? A cute kid. Maybe Clark could adopt an orphan? That's sort of traditional for the tenth season of a show whose original cast has all left.) Meanwhile, Gil Bellows will be playing Max Lord for at least two episodes. [E! Online]

This show's season finale will air on May 14. [SpoilerTV]

Here are some (Bwa-ha-ha!) stills from the April 2 episode, "Escape," featuring Silver Banshee. Seriously, now that Max Lord is on this show, we really need Blue Beetle and Booster Gold to poke fun at the extreme silliness. I would settle for Ambush Bug too. [Daemon's TV]

Heroes:

If this show does return for another season, Mohinder won't show up — he's already signed on to another series, USA's spy show Covert Affairs. [Fancast]

Lost:

Rumor has it that Mira Furlan will be back as Danielle Rousseau. At this point, it's just Mr. Eko and Matthew Abaddon who aren't slated to reappear. Oh, and Walt, although even he might be glimpsed at some point, according to recent reports. [Ace ShowBiz]

The show's already working on the first hour of the three-hour finale, and apparently a key sequence involves Jack, Kate, Desmond, Hurley, Sawyer, Faraday and Minkowski underwater. As the source says, "Fully submerged." (As with all unsourced reports, take this with the usual grain of salt.) [SpoilersLost]

And this is just a confirmation of stuff we've already heard, but someone who observed filming on the big "Jacob origins" episode, 6x15, says that the actors' trailers were labeled Mother, Young Jacob, old Jacob, Jacob, young MIB, And Old MIB. Note that there's only one Mother, which does seem to indicate that Jacob and MIB are brothers. [SpoilersLost]
