KICK-ASS 2

The first trailer has hit for "Kick-Ass 2" and it's tagged with a red band. While it's the first trailer fans have gotten a chance to see for the film, it's definitely a trailer worthy of the red band. Don't watch this one at work.

Opens August 16

THOR: THE DARK WORLD

It's been a while since there's been any concrete news for "Thor: The Dark World" -- understandable, considering that "Iron Man 3" is mere months away from release. However, Tom Hiddleston spoke with Red Carpet News TV about the film and its villain portrayed by Christopher Eccleston.

"He's one of Britain's greatest actors and he brings to everything he does a degree of commitment and intelligence and conviction and complexity," Hiddleston said of Eccleston. "I really don't want to spoil anything for you. Basically, Christopher Eccleston plays Malekith and he has his own ambition. Whether or not Loki can coincide with or contradict or subvert or enhance that ambition remains to be seen."

Opens November 8

THE WALKING DEAD

CBR spoke with "The Walking Dead" star Danai Gurira about her role as fan-favorite character Michonne and the challenges she's had to endure so far this season.

"I think she has, sort of, allowed herself to go through a healing in a sense, and I think that involved stepping back, touching back into who she used to be. Even before anything went down, you know?" Gurira said. "Trusting and understanding that connecting with people again is not a liability; it's actually something that you need in this realm. I think she gets that and I think thats what you see her doing; reconnecting who she's always been. Putting down the mask, really, is what I think that episode was really illustrating."

ARROW

CBR's Erik Amaya spoke with "Arrow" producers Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg prior to the PaleyFest panel this past weekend about the direction and mission statement for the show.

"We don't ever want Oliver Queen to not be the star of his own show, so what you'll be seeing are more of the villains and secondary characters. We have a lot more characters in this season than anyone was expecting, and that has served us very well in addition the new characters and villains we've created."

Meanwhile, it looks like Roy Harper will play a larger role in "Arrow's" second season as Colton Haynes has been upgraded to a series regular for next year. He'll continue as a recurring guest star for the rest of season one.
