Captain America: The Winter Soldier
The Office of Cleveland's Mayor has confirmed that the Captain America sequel will film on location in the city — Cleveland previously stood in for New York City in The Avengers. Filming will result in road closures in downtown Cleveland from May 18 to June 28, according to the press release. [City of Cleveland]
Tony Wenson, the chief operating officer for Michigan Motion Pictures Studios, says set-building has already begun in their Pontiac facility for the fourth Transformers movie, with Michael Bay, Mark Wahlberg, and the rest of the team due to start filming likely early this summer:
They are in the process of pre-production right now. They are filming in several other states, too. The majority of their shooting, I believe, will be done in the state of Michigan. In addition to working on our stages, they’ll also be working throughout the state at different locations. We’re really excited that they’re here. We’re looking forward to the opportunity to service another film.
Here's another international trailer for Neil Jordan's vampire movie, starring Gemma Arterton and Saoirse Ronan.
We've seen photos of Matt Smith filming the 50th anniversary special, we've seen photos of David Tennant filming the 50th anniversary special, but we haven't yet seen a photo of Matt Smith and David Tennant together filming the 50th anniversary special. Let's rectify that right now.
The set photo comes from yesterday's filming in Chepstow, Wales, and Smith and Tennant appear to be standing in front of the Tenth Doctor's TARDIS — it's a bit smaller than the Eleventh Doctor's, plus the windows are gray as opposed to black. Also, check out the Zygon in the background. [@HWBCymru]
Speaking of which, classic Doctor Who writer Robert Banks Stewart, who wrote a pair of acclaimed Tom Baker stories with "Terror of the Zygons" and "The Seeds of Doom," discusses the return of one of his creations for the 50th anniversary special, pretty much confirming that other, even more iconic monsters will indeed appear:
"The Zygons are in there with all the others - particularly the Daleks and the Cybermen. [But] nobody yet knows what the plot of the 50th will be - Steven Moffat and his team in Cardiff, they are quite rightly keeping it all secret."
Finally, Tenth Doctor David Tennant discusses what it's like reprising the role for the 50th anniversary special:
"It is strange being back in the same suit, but it also feels very familiar and comfortable. There's nothing quite like Doctor Who. It has a wonderful excitement about it. I always had happy times there. It's lovely to be around Billie [Piper] again, even though I see her all the time anyway."
Game of Thrones
Here's a promo for the next episode, "And Now His Watch Is Ended."
Star Joe Manganiello talks in general terms about what's ahead this season for Alcide:
I think [the producers] looked at some things that went on with Alcide last season, and thought, ‘How can we top that or how can we get even racier?' And I think they've succeeded… Right out of the gate, it's really juicy.
Also, on the topic of character death, Manganiello hinted that that could be a fairly big part of season six:
We're getting to the point in the season now where people are starting to die. The table reads are starting to get smaller, and I'm sure they will continue to do that.
To that end, the seventh episode is reportedly called "The Funeral," and returning guest star Anna Camp adds:
"There's a lot of death. I've had sad read-throughs recently. It's too sad. Like, some people cried."
Once Upon a Time
Emilie de Ravin, who already plays the dual role of Belle and Claire, discusses her new, cursed-memory alter ego, Lacey:
"On this show you already get to play two different characters and now I get to play three. [Lacey is] debaucherous. While Belle would have a cup of tea, Lacey would have a double whiskey on the rocks. She talks with more slang, feels comfortable with her sexuality and doesn't care what people think. She's described in the script as a 'scantily-clad bar whore.'... Claire didn't come back [from imprisonment] too well emotionally, and Mr. Gold is [experiencing] a Belle who no longer loves him... There is definitely a resolution in the finale and a part of the story between Mr. Gold and my character that's really beautiful. But as true love is, it's never an easy path. Let's put it that way."
Here's the official synopsis for episode twenty-two, "Clip Show," which airs May 8:
FAMILIAR FACES RETURN AS THE THIRD TRIAL NEARS - Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) reunite with Castiel (Misha Collins). Digging through the Men of Letters' files, they stumble upon an undiscovered film which could be the key to the third trial. Metatron (guest star Curtis Armstrong) enlists Cass to mull over problems at home. Meanwhile, Crowley (guest star Mark Sheppard) digs into Sam and Dean's past.
Showrunner Jeremy Carver discusses what's ahead in the May 1 episode, "The Great Escapist," which guest stars Curtis Armstrong as the archangel Metatron:
"Metatron is a recluse and not by accident. So it's going to be something of a chore to yank him from the life he has become accustomed. He's not exactly a willing participant... The weaker Sam gets, the more Dean has to stand up, and I think both boys are going to have to grapple with some very, very big things that happen in these last four episodes."
Here's the description for the penultimate episode of the season, "Darkness on the Edge of Town," which airs May 8:
CAN OLIVER OUTWIT OR OUTFIGHT THE DARK ARCHER TO SAVE THE CITY? - With the Undertaking days away, Malcolm (guest star John Barrowman) dons his black hood to conclude business with seismologist Dr. Brion Markov (guest star Eric Floyd) and his team. Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Moira (Susanna Thompson) entertain a number of surprise - and mostly unwelcome - visitors. Hooded confrontations at home and the Meryln Global Group reveal dark secrets. Meanwhile, Roy (guest star Colton Haynes) and Thea (Willa Holland) are still looking out for a hero. Laurel (Katie Cassidy) makes a decision after Tommy's (Colin Donnell) revelation. In a flashback to the island, Oliver, Slade (guest star Manu Bennett) and Shado (guest star Celina Jade) struggle to prevent Fyers (guest star Sebastian Dunn) from shooting a Ferris Air jet out of the sky.
The Vampire Diaries
Here's the description for episode twenty-two, "The Walking Dead," which airs May 9:
SOMETHING WICKED - As Graduation Day approaches, Caroline (Candice Accola) tries to distract Elena (Elena Dobrev) by focusing on simple tasks like sending out announcements, but Elena won't be swayed from her new obsession. Sheriff Forbes (Marguerite MacIntyre) calls Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley) to the hospital, where someone has been attacking patients. Still trying to force Katherine (Elena Dobrev) to help her, Bonnie (Kat Graham) refuses to give up on her plan to defeat Silas. As a violent wind storm causes a power outage in Mystic Falls, ghosts suddenly appear - some with good intentions and some bent on revenge.
Costar Zach Roerig discusses what's ahead for Matt:
I think that at some point Matt will understand why Rebekah caused the [Wickery Bridge] accident and acts the way she does. He has a couple of honest moments with her at prom. There's still something there and we'll see how that plays out. I don't think he'll ever forget what she did but do I think he'll forgive her? Yea, I do actually. At this point, everyone's done a bunch of messed up things so everyone's conscience is clouded. [Moreover,] everyone has a crazy rationale behind what that they did so a beautiful blonde girl could probably easily persuade Matt.
Humanity-free Elena is wreaking havoc in Mystic Falls. Will Matt have a hand in helping reel her back in from the darkness?
Yes, Matt will always have a hand in bringing Elena back to her humanity because, in a way, that is what Matt is. He is Elena's humanity.

Here are some spoiler-y tidbits about the prom episode, courtesy of TV Line:
Elena and Stefan do share an incredibly heated dance, but it's his intentions you should be asking about. As for Delena, let's just say Damon's doubts about Elena's feelings for him prove to be a sore spot... Although Caroline's dance card is pretty full in the episode, she doesn't hit the floor with Klaus. That's the bad news. The good news is that, prior to the big event, those crazy kids do share a nice moment - during which Klaus actually proves to be a friend! Stop the presses!
Tyler Posey discusses what's ahead for Scott this season, plus what's not ahead for Scott (sex, apparently):
[Scott hasn't] had sex this season yet. I got some last season. This season I got a motorcycle instead, which is pretty much like sex. It rumbles. It is between your legs... This season has death, near-death experiences, out-of-body experiences, bullet wounds, twins, [and] sex between a new character and an old character that isn't me.”
Elsewhere, Posey discusses what to expect from the new Alpha Pack members in season three:
"What's cool about them is that they are all unique and they're all individuals, so they do each have their own agenda. All in all, they're all here together doing one thing, but they each have their own storylines, which is really cool. It's really cool."
Aaron Douglas, Battlestar Galactica's own Chief Tyrol, discusses his role as Sheriff Tom Sworn on the Netflix horror series:
I am the sheriff of the small town and I am holding onto 10,000 kite strings in a hurricane. As things spiral out of control, I try to figure out what's going on, how it's going on, and who's making it go on. I'm sort of the Columbo figure, but with both good eyes. I don't do a lot of this, "Just one more thing." Sheriff Sworn is really the heart of the show. He's the center that everything spins around, and he's very much that anchor, and all this is going on out here, and the audience can always come back and have a little settling point and find the humanity in the moral, straight line with him for a few episodes at least.
What's his relationship like with the Godfreys?
Sworn has a good relationship with everybody. He's the sheriff, so he has to be that politician and there's no mayor or anything, so he's the leader of the town, at least the political type figure. The Godfreys tend to run things otherwise. I would say that if he had a best friend, it would probably be Norman, who's played by Dougray Scott. A great guy, both on and off camera. That was a treat, working with him.
Beauty and the Beast
The final two episodes are reportedly called "Date Night" and "Never Turn Back." Regarding the former, executive producer Jennifer Levin hints, "Cat and Vincent get to go on a date that is not in his ‘lair' or whatever you want to call it but out on an actual date, and it's super-fun." [TV Line]
