Man of Steel 2: Batman vs Superman
It looks like the sequel to Man of Steel is going to have at least one similiarity to The Dark Knight Rises: football. This weekend, the movie's going to be filming in southern California, at a college game between ELAC and Victor Valley College. The stadium will stand in for Gotham City University and the game will be between GCU and Metropolis State University.
The crew are reportedly hoping to get "three takes of three plays" and will be giving out t-shirts (presumably GCU and MSU ones) to the people in the crowd who will be in the shots. [Slashfilm]

Pacific Rim 2
Guillermo del Toro says that, even though it's not greenlit yet, he and Travis Beacham are working on a script for the sequel:
We are writing the sequel. Travis Beacham and I are writing, so that is active.
The decision to green light or not, that’s definitely above my pay rate.
The director's said in the past that they're thinking of making Newt Geiszler (Charlie Day) the villain this time, but now he's added more details:
We will have Gipsy 2.0 for sure. Second thing is you’re gonna see a merging of Kaiju and Jaeger. And that is quite special. We’ve drifted with a Kaiju brain. Well, then start riffing on that, and you’ll get to something.

Transformers 4: Age of Extinction
Filming in China has revealed a new car being used: a 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia Speciale. The same model was used as "Dino" in the last movie, but was such a tiny part there that the speculation is that it's a new one.
Filming in China will take place for the last weeks of October and be done at Tsing Ma Bridge, Lyndhurst Terrace, Central, Bank of China Tower, Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon and Legislative Council Square. There's also some chatter from translated Chinese sources that there will be a big action sequence at the convention center and that at least one scene will have Mark Wahlberg saying goodbye to his daughter.

The Walking Dead
We recently found out that Michael Cudlitz, formerly of Southland, will be playing Sgt. Abraham Ford. Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman tells us why, in his mind, it's a perfect match:
Because he is amazing and very much fits the character. Abraham is a larger than life character that comes in and bowls over the characters. He’s just a take charge kind of guy and we need somebody that has that presence, that can stand up to characters like Daryl Dixon and Rick Grimes and really hold his own. This is a guy that can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with Tyreese and be imposing and that’s something that we needed and that’s something that Mr. Cudlitz delivers quite well.
Once Upon a Time
Jared Gilmore, who plays Henry, says that his character's initial distrust of Peter Pan is going to evolve into something else over this season:
At first, he doesn't like Pan. He doesn't trust him, but I think over the next couple episodes, Henry will slowly start to trust Pan, and begin to like him, and eventually come to the point where he doesn't know if his family is coming to save him, and he eventually thinks this could be his new home if they're not coming. He starts making friends with the Lost Boys and Pan. He's away from home. He doesn't know if his family's coming to find him.
He also explains what it means to him that Henry is the "Truest Believer":
I think Henry has so much belief because over his life, he's had so much stuff to believe in. "In the first season, he had to believe in Emma, that she was the Savior, and he had to try and convince her that she is this person, and all these people are them. And then, in the second season, at the beginning, he has to believe that Emma and his grandma, Snow White, can get back from Fairy Tale land, and he also has to believe in his whole entire family, too. And in the third season, he has to believe in his family to come save him, but because he doesn't know that they're coming to save him, he could eventually lose that belief.
