HEROES

Director Greg Beeman posted a new (and of course spoilerish) blog about last night's episode.

CBR News talked to actor Masi Oka about what's next for his character.

WATCHMEN

UGO spoke to effects wizard Alan McFarland about some of his favorite work in the project. "From the standpoint of the most technically difficult scene to pull of with Dr. M, I recall it being in his laboratory when you see four of him," McFarland said. "You see a glimpse of that in the trailer. We had to have Billy plus three other body doubles in identical mo-cap suits to pull that off, and it was very early in shooting Dr. Manhattan, so we were new to the process. It was a real trial-by-fire on that day."

GREEN LANTERN

First Showing caught up with producer Donald De Line about the Greg Berlanti-directed project. "He told me that 'a new draft of the script came in' and they're 'gearing up to start shooting early spring.' While it's not confirmed, he added that 'it's coming together and I'm excited about it. Hopefully we'll make it to start gate. We're really close -- really close.'"

CHUCK

CBR News talked to the stars of the hit NBC series, discussing season two.

MARVEL MOVIE MANIA

According to Variety, Marvel has extended their deal with Paramount, which will distribute their future films "Iron Man 2" (May 7, 2010), "Thor" (July 16, 2010, and Kenneth Branagh has been confirmed as the director), "The First Avenger: Captain America" (May 6, 2011) and "The Avengers" (July 15, 2011).

The ones who ask, "What do you mean your sister's dating somebody who works for Warner Brothers?" The ones who know the code names of movie projects and scour city permit filings for them. The devoted, the involved. Fans, just like you. Whatever you know, we wanna know, and whether you want your name shouted to the web's rafters or kept closer than a classified report, we've got you covered like a comforter. Broadcasting live from Los Angeles, this is your humble scribe Hannibal Tabu saying thank you for your time and indulgence, I'm so blessed that a lovely young lady asked me to marry her one year ago today, and The Hundred and Four is back watching a whole lotta TV ...
