Jon Favreau offers reassurance for everyone worried about how Joss Whedon is going to juggle all the stories and characters:

He's also really good with ensemble, and I like his tone of comedy. There's a lot of exposition that's been established in the other films and he's going to have to not only corral all the characters and find how they interact in the most interesting way, and hopefully bring his sense of humor to it as well, but also help keep the storylines aligned that continue from before the film starts and after it finishes."

As previously rumored, episode 12 is indeed titled "Closing Time." [Planet Gallifrey]

Some teasers for the episode:

River Song and The Doctor's relationship is tied up in a bow.
-Rory is not gay whilst Hitler is definitely in the closet.
-Other people know about The Doctor's death~day.

And here are 12 quotes from the episode, including the always-intriguing "Let's get married." [Blogtor Who]


And finally, we have promo pics from the episode. [Den of Geek]

True Blood

Things don't look so great for Bill and Sookie's relationship, based on comments from Stephen Moyer:

It comes down to whether Sookie can forgive Bill for his past, though I think she realizes that he made some of his mistakes trying to protect her. She might be able to forgive him, but the idea of seeing herself together with him is something else.



And it sounds like Hoyt's about to take a turn towards the dark side, based on this interview with Jim Parrack:

Well, Hoyt's father is dead and gone. His mother is dead to him. So he only has two people left: the love of his life and his best friend. And if they're gone, what is there? That's the kind of thing people kill people over, or destroy their own lives over. And Hoyt is somewhere between those two poles.



Iron Man 3

Happy Hogan will be in the movie, and it sounds like Jon Favreau will return for the role. He also says director Shane Black should be well equipped to take on the project, as he helped talk through some of the script for the first Iron Man. [First Showing]


The Hunger Games

Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) will pitch in on the soundtrack: She'll sing on a track titled "Rue's Lullaby," which "will provide a solemn moment in the passing of a comrade." [IGN]


The Dark Knight Rises

This set video comes complete with a satisfying explosion:


Plus, here's a nice photo of that tumbler, as well as a creeptastic close-up of Bane.

Here's a brief promo for the season seven premiere. [KSiteTV]

Episode 6 will be called "Slash Fiction." [SpoilerTV]

An upcoming episode is said to feature some mocking of Michele Bachmann, and episode 5 will be titled "Shut Up, Dr. Phil." [The TV Addict]



This promo poster for season 4 is intense but doesn't reveal much.

William Sadler will return as Dr. Bruce Sumner (who tried to return Walter to the institution in season 1). [Fringe Spoilers]


In this extensive interview, Joshua Jackson talks about Peter, his feelings for Olivia vs. "Fauxilivia," and the last season's giant cliffhanger. As far as he knows, Peter's not an Observer....

You can say whatever you like, and I can say whatever I like. They don't tell me those things. So as far as I know today, I'm not an Observer. But who knows tomorrow? I thought it would have been really cool.


[Fringe Television]

In another interview, he says any Peter coming back to us will be a different man (for the better):

The nobility of that sacrifice is a great ending for the Peter we used to know. His journey was to grow up and become a man, become part of a family and dedicate himself to something. The ultimate test of that was, ‘The choice is them or you.' So I think the guy who would come back to us now would be a changed man.



The Walking Dead

The show continues to film all over the greater Atlanta area, including a day in downtown Sharpsburg, in Coweta county. One set photo: [Spoiler TV]



Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker is set to join the cast. She'll be the department honcho "who explains to Reynolds' character what has happened when he dies." Which is the role previously rumored to be filled by Jodie Foster. [Variety]


Fantastic Voyage

Director Shawn Levy is about ready to bounce on this remake. Long story short: He wants an A-lister, Fox is skeptical, and so they're struggling to settle on a star. But Levy reportedly has had a meeting with Will Smith, and if he signs, it's likely to fix things. [Hollywood Reporter]



Joining the cast: Faran Tahir, best known for his roles as Captain Robau in the Star Trek reboot and Raza in Iron Man. Sadly there's no more detail than that. Also joining the project are newbies Michael Mando (as "Rico") and Alejandro Rae (as some manner of gangster). [IMDB]



A Spanish paper reports the kinda-sorta Alien prequel will film in Spain. The Google translation's a bit garbled, but it sounds like at least one big scene (filmed in a giant water tank) will involve a yacht caught in a storm. [Informacion]


War Games

Screenwriter (and relative newcomer) Noah Oppenheim has joined this remake. [Coming Soon]


The Secret Circle

Copious set photos reveal a little more about the new CW show. [SpoilerTV]

Additional reporting by Katharine Trendacosta and Charlie Jane Anders.




Episode 6 will be called "Slash Fiction."

I don't even know what to say to this. Either it's a complete misnomer or...yeah, I really don't know. I'm not sure how much farther they can push this slash/meta thing.
