Tony Stark is looking intense and troubled in our first Iron Man 2 photo. There are also Transformers photos, Star Trek details, and a Terminator Salvation video. Plus Doctor Who, Fringe and Supernatural. Spoiler assault!
Iron Man 2:
The new movie takes place six months after the first movie, which ended with Tony Stark confessing his superheroic identity. Says director Jon Favreau:
How many superheroes are open about their true identities? We wanted to play with that idea. But it obviously has consequences - in his relationships, on the team. There are a lot of areas we can explore.
And here's our first picture of Tony in the new movie. [USA Today]
In the new film, Old Spock actually discusses the fact that James T. Kirk's father didn't die until Kirk was already in Starfleet, in the original timeline. (This underscores that we're seeing a whole different timeline.) And there's a "character death" (Pike?) that doesn't match up with the original series canon. Also, the Spock-Uhura romance is set up in such a way, that it will probably pay off in the second movie. [L.A.Times]
Here's another new TV spot, featuring some awesome fighter-plane action and some great scenes of Terminators attacking.
Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen:
Tyrese Gibson says his character, Epps, has been promoted to Master Sergeant. "I've got way more responsibilities, way more pressure, way more things to communicate about, way more things to get done and way more enemies to stop." And our heroes are more prepared for the robot threat this time out, although there are still some people who need to be brought up to speed over the course of the movie. And Epps doesn't die in this film. [Sci Fi Wire]
There are plenty of "twists and turns" remaining in Donna's story, promises Russell T. Davies.
You might be wondering how Donna can return, since her mind is supposed to burn up if she ever remembers anything about her life with the Doctor? Sorry, but you'll have to wait until Christmas to find out!
The season finale brings together all the stuff the show has hinted at so far into an idea that's "the biggest, all-time creepy thing ever," says Jasika Nicole. "It all comes to a head and explodes." (I am so not looking forward to seeing the innuendo about that remark in the comments.) [Fringe Television]
The angels will try all their angelic mojo to keep Lucifer from rising. Meanwhile, a "seemingly insurmountable chasm" will open up between the Winchester boys. Says Eric Kripke, "The stage is set for season five - and it ain't good." [Multipleverses]
Also, Sam's demon-blood addiction really will become an addiction - he'll bottom out and become something else, "almost a creature of reflex," says Ben Edlund. Also, in season five, Castiel will be around more, but he won't be tooling around with the Winchesters in some kind of buddy comedy. And season four is really just the set-up for the massive, insane season five. Lucifer will be huge, but he's also just an insinuation for the most part. We may not get to meet him until the very, very end. And finally, this is not a story about either of the Winchester brothers finding love. [E! Online]
