S.H.I.E.L.D.

Joss Whedon spoke with ClickTV on the red carpet for "Much Ado About Nothing," where the director spoke very briefly about the progress on "S.H.I.E.L.D."

"I think it's going well, but I may be biased," Whedon said, and also commented about cameos in the show. "It's possible, but it's not why we're doing it. We want to make sure people fall in love with the characters we have on the show and don't spend all their time wondering if Chris Evans is going to show up."

ARROW

CBR's own Kiel Phegley spoke with Geoff Johns about tonight's episode of "Arrow," "Dead to Rights" and commented on the return of Deadshot to the show.

"Having Deadshot return from day one was the plan. When that script came in, the thought was that Deadshot can be injured, he can be hurt, but he's still alive," Johns said. "He's too important a character. Then when the final cut came in, he looked very dead. [Laughs] But we said, 'We'll figure out a way to make this work, because he is coming back.' So you will see a little bit more of Deadshot here, and China White is still a bit more in the background, though she does have a bigger role."

The CW has released a new clip from "Dead to Rights." Check it out below.

Finally, TV Line has revealed the season finale for "Arrow" will air Wednesday, May 15.

WONDER WOMAN FAN TRAILER
