And an X-Files alum is joining Arrow, too. Plus, a new photo of Jamie Foxx in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past is doing reshoots, and the fate of the Transformers movies hangs in the balance. And check out a clip from Doctor Who: An Adventure in Space and Time. Spoilers now!
X-Men: Days of Future Past
The movie's going back to Canada to film some new scenes. Clearly it was decided something's missing, but what's still unclear. We do know that Daniel Cudmore, who plays Colossus, tweeted that he was back in Canada, but that's the only hint so far. What new scenes could they need? That trailer looked pretty packed. [Coming Soon]
Paramount executive Rob Moore says that how well Age of Extinction does will determine if there are any more Transformers movies. Do you hear that, world? There's still a chance to turn back from a world that has five Michael Bay Transformers films in it. [Transformers Live Action Movie Blog]
Amazing Spider-Man 2
Here's a new photo of Jamie Foxx as Max Dillon, likely right before he turns into Electro. [Coming Soon]
Following his appearance in the "Night of the Doctor" minisode, Paul McGann has said that there's always a chance that he'd come back:
Well, it's like with the mini-episode – if they send you the script and it's good, you'll do it.
So, you know, these things are only as good as the material. So the real question is if the material was good enough and if you were available, you'd do it – cos it's a Who.
An Adventure in Space and Time
Speaking of Doctor Who, the BBC's released a clip from the new docudrama.
Nicholas Lea (X-Files's one armed Russian Krycek) will be showing up in this season's episodes 12 and 13 as Mark Francis, Walter Steele's associate. He's there to play a pivotal part in the twist that follow's Moira's murder trial. [TV Line]
Here's the synopsis for Wednesday's episode, "State v. Queen":
MOIRA FIGHTS FOR HER LIFE; THE COUNT RETURNS — Oliver (Stephen Amell) is concerned when a mysterious illness sweeps the city, infecting hundreds of people, including Diggle (David Ramsey). Oliver discovers Vertigo in Diggle's blood and realizes The Count (guest star Seth Gabel) has broken out of prison and is once again distributing his drug. Meanwhile, Moira (Susanna Thompson) goes on trial for her participation in the Undertaking. ADA Adam Donner (guest star Dylan Bruce) collapses in court with Vertigo symptoms so Laurel (Katie Cassidy) must step in and try the case against Moira. Oliver is torn between standing by his family during the trial and catching The Count. However, things change when Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) follows a lead and walks straight into a trap set by The Count. Bethany Rooney directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim& Drew Z. Greenberg (#207).

And here's one for the episode after that, "The Scientist":
BARRY ALLEN COMES TO STARLING CITY — A seemingly impossible robbery at Queen Consolidated's Applied Sciences Division brings Central City police scientist Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) to town. Citing a similar case back home, Barry offers to help Oliver (Stephen Amell) and team with the investigation. Oliver senses there is more to Barry than meets the eye, but he's distracted by the similarities between this current case and something that happened on the island. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) takes a liking to Barry, which doesn't go unnoticed by Oliver. Sin (guest star Bex Taylor-Klaus) asks Roy (Colton Haynes) for help when a friend of hers goes missing. Roy is surprised when Thea (Willa Holland) not only encourages him to help, but joins the search. Unfortunately, Sin's friend is connected to Brother Blood (guest star Kevin Alejandro), and their search ultimately gets one of them seriously injured. Michael Schultz directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kresiberg and teleplay by Andrew Kreisberg & Geoff Johns (#208).

The Vampire Diaries
Stefan and Caroline's alter egos, Paul Wesley and Candice Accola, are on different sides of the shipping war regarding their characters. Accola thinks that Caroline ships Stefan and Elena, saying:
I can see why viewers of the show see a Caroline and Stefan connection of sorts; I don't think the characters themselves really think anything of it, if I had to jump into the Caroline brain," she explained. "But I can see them growing as friends, it's really up to the writers where these characters are going to go.
I think Caroline truly believes Stefan and Elena are supposed to be together, so I can't imagine her, at this time, trying to get in the way of that.
Wesley, on the other hand, would like Stefan and Caroline to get together soon:
Yeah, I can see that happening and I think it will happen. It's been a very slow process. They like to really take their time with it. They've been sort of hinting at it and teasing it, but it hasn't materialized.
Hopefully within this season. They don't have very much time left for Stefan and Caroline to get in the sack. That, I think, needs to happen.
Co-creator Alex Kurtzman says that, even though John Cho's Andy was brought in to help interrogate the Headless Horseman, what side Andy's really on will be revealed slowly throughout the season. As to who the Horseman is, Kurtzman gave some hints as to his background:
This probably falls under the heading of all bad guys are the heroes of their own story. The best bad guys actually have a core motivation that any of us understands and would relate to; we just may not cross the lines that they cross. It is 100 percent relevant to Sleepy Hollow and the characters. It's not a story line divorced from it. Hopefully you'll feel differently about Headless after you watch the show.
Now that Abbie and Ichabod have trapped Headless, they'll stop at nothing to find his weakness in order to kill him — a feat that won't be easy. But in doing so, Ichabod may uncover some truths that should've stayed buried. He may have been tempted by something, something we might all be tempted by. That tricky Moloch, he always promises you the thing that no one else can give you, but the question is: What's the price tag associated with it?

Orlando Jones explained why he's glad that Captain Irving's seen the Horseman and believes Ichabod and Abbie:
It's one of those things where, how long can you talk about it (laughs). I actually liked the lead up to it because… I didn't want to jump into being a believer. And to me, that would just rob all the fun from it, because I still sort of believe that if somebody walked up to you and told you there was a Headless Horseman, you'd be like, 'Look, whatever you're smoking is cool, but we don't need to have this discussion right now.' … I think what's most exciting is where it's going, which is the unfortunate part, because that's stuff I can't tell you. It's just the tip of the iceberg.
Person of Interest
This week's episode will have the Machine give out Reese's number. According to Jonathan Nolan, this is going to be a big deal:
It's a big deal for our show, it's never happened before. The man in the suit is finally front and center, so the question becomes, "How's he going to get out of this one?"
It will test all of the aspects of the evolution of these characters that we've seen over the last three seasons: what they mean to each other, what they'd be willing to do for each other. It all kind of comes to a climax in this episode.
As for Fusco's fate, both Nolan and executive producer Greg Plageman are staying cryptic. All Nolan will say is that it's been great to work with Kevin Chapman and that the next few episodes will keep to the mandate to be "dangerous and exciting." Plageman merely says that they love to see their characters "challenged." [Entertainment Weekly]
According to Michael Ealy, we should be looking out for scenes in the car:
We've found a lot of connective tissue in the car scenes that I think are just nice. It's actually been quite nice to discover that.
Ealy also says that he'll be playing another DRN in the future and that you'll learn more about Dorian's history.

Beauty and the Beast
Amber Skye Noyes was introduced last week as Tori, the daughter of a Beast. At the end of the episode, she looked into a mirror and saw her eyes glow yellow. Noyes cleared up what that meant:
If she'd seen those glowing eyes a day before, she probably would have been freaked out. But now that she knows what that means, she's seen her father, she's seen Vincent, she's sees what those eyes mean — that she is a beast. She's totally scared.
. . . [T]hat was the first time she's seen her eyes like that and it's sort of unclear what has triggered it. Was it just the stress, all this beast action around her, is it just her coming of age….?
She also said that Tori's going to be around for a while, saying:
Tori's going to be around for a little while. She's got a lot to discover, she's got a lot to bring to the story and she's got a lot to add to the dynamic of Vincent and Cat and also Gabe and a lot of other characters. Like I said, we haven't seen a beast, from the get go, develop into their own. Vincent and Gabe and all of the other beasts from the show, they've been established, very powerful beasts. And what's cool about Tori is that she's just learning what it's like to be one. It's really going to be a cool ride.
Here's the synopsis for next week's episode, "Rock and a Hard Place."
SAM AND DEAN REUNITE WITH SHERIFF MILLS — Sheriff Mills (guest star Kim Rhodes) calls Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help investigating multiple murders in her small town.

When Dean disappears, Sam and Sheriff Mills realize whatever they are hunting has taken Dean too and team up to rescue him. John MacCarthy directed the episode written by Jenny Klein (908).
