Check out striking new Game of Thrones posters, focusing on the Lannisters. Did Jennifer Morrison finally reveal Chris Gorham's mystery Once Upon a Time character? Plus casting news from Teen Wolf, The Flash, iZombie, and The Visitors. Spoilers now!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
At an event in Hollywood, Marvel showed the first ten minutes of the movie. Here's ComingSoon's description of the opening scenes:
The film opens with Steve Rogers jogging around Washington, D.C., easily outpacing other joggers, including Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson. When Rogers realizes that Wilson is also in the armed forces, the pair strike up a conversation and we, for just a moment, get a very funny glimpse of a list of pop culture items that Rogers is keeping so that he can catch up on his seven decade absence (with entries like "Star Wars/Star Trek").
It's very soon, however, that Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow pulls up and takes Rogers away. They've got a mission in the Indian Ocean rescuing a hijacked vessel with Maximiliano Hernández's S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jasper Sitwell among the hostages.
Amazing Spider-Man 2
As we mentioned yesterday, it looks as though Sony liked what they saw in the sequel, since they've officially hired Marc Webb to direct Amazing Spider-Man 3 — scheduled to come out in 2016. No word on how long Webb will work on Spider-Man films, but Sony could try to keep a hold on him forever. [Comic Book Resources]
This is such early stages, but Karl Urban says that writer Alex Garland has had conversations with Lionsgate about making a sequel. Fingers crossed, everyone!
X-Men: Days of Future Past
Here's a seven-second trailer. [Slashfilm]
Once Upon a Time
Jennifer Morrison talked about where we'll find Emma when the show returns on Sunday:
Emma will be shaken out of her memory loss sooner than Henry — she gets pulled out of that and needs to go find her family. We'll spend a lot of the second half of the season trying to track down who caused the new curse and why.
. . . [The Neal-Emma-Hook love triangle has] been on pause — time has stood still, and Emma has met someone else in New York whom she's very serious with. She's looking at him as a great father figure for Henry, and as far as Emma is aware, he is a good guy — but there's more to him than what's on the surface.
The someone else seems to me to be Chris Gorham's mystery character, who has been consistently described as being important to Emma and Henry. [TV Guide]
The premiere will also reveal that Snow White and Robin Hood know of each other, in some way, but have not actually met. [TV Line]
The show's currently casting Mason, an "out-and-proud athlete, described as funny, witty and handsome." He'll be the best friend of another new character, Beacon Hills High's new star lacrosse player. Both will show up next season.
And while there's no romance in Lydia and Stiles' future, their bond will play an important part in the attempt to rescue Stiles from his possession. [TV Line]
Grey Damon says that his character Grayson will change the most this season, promising a "huge arc." We'll also learn about the death of Grayson's brother in the war, and that his death didn't affect Grayson quote how one would expect — but did effect his mother "more aggressively." [K Site TV]
Michelle Harrison will recur (we're betting in flashbacks) as Barry's mother, Nora Allen. [Deadline]
Genre MVP David Anders has joined Rob Thomas' show about Liv, a med student/zombie who receives the memories of every brain she eats from the coroner's office. Anders will play Blaine, a "rich guy who gets in over his head in the drug business." [TV Line]
Joining Milo Ventigmiglia and Barry Sloane is Lily Rabe as FBI Agent Claire Bennigan, who works to save the world from an unseen alien enemy. [Den of Geek]
In early 2015, Hallmark's made-for-TV movie series will become a full-fledged ongoing series, with a 10-episode first season starting after the seventh movie airs. It stars Catherine Bell as "haunted house resident/small-town enchantress Cassie Nightingale." [TV Line]
Here's the synopsis for next week's episode, "The Promise":
THE TURNING POINT — Oliver (Stephen Amell) is shocked when he learns that Slade (Manu Bennett) has come to Starling City. Back on the island, as Oliver, Slade and Sara (Caity Lotz) prepare to take over the freighter from Ivo (guest star Dylan Neal), Sara pulls Oliver aside and tells him he needs to kill Ivo to prevent him from telling Slade what happened with Shado. Oliver feels immense guilt over the situation but realizes Slade's growing rage from the Mirakuru makes him unpredictable and he could turn on his friends if he thinks Oliver is to blame. Oliver agrees to kill Ivo and the battle begins. Glen Winter directed the episode written by Jake Coburn & Ben Sokolowski (#215).
Go here for more photos from the episode. It looks intense. Intense in Starling City and back on the island.
