GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

After yesterday's reveal that Ophelia Lovibond would join the cast of James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy" in a mystery role, it was reported that Lee Pace was in final negotiations to play one of the villains in the film. Pace had previously auditioned for Star-Lord, and though the role eventually went to Chris Pratt, Marvel was impressed with Pace, and kept him in mind when casting the villain.

IRON MAN 3

Empire Online spoke with Don Cheadle and interviewed Gwyneth Paltrow about the possibilities of returning for another "Iron Man" film after "Iron Man 3."

"The door is always left open in these kinds of movies especially when they do as well as they have done," Cheadle told Empire. "I know there was talk of making sure we did this one right, and if it worked it could be the last one. There's room for more to be done with these characters. We're getting to a sweet spot with Tony and Rhodey, anyway. Robert's really busy, he's just had a kid, and if he were to say I need a break for a second, I would not blame him."

Meanwhile, Paltrow's contract with Marvel finished after "Iron Man 3," and she doesn't know whether she will come back to reprise her role as Pepper Potts for another film.

"I think it depends. It depends on Robert," Paltrow told Empire. "I don't think they're going to make a Pepper Potts movie, so it depends on Iron Man and Robert. I'd be open to more Pepper because I love working with Robert and it's a great franchise. Most of the time I'm a full-time mother so it's nice for me to once in a while go and work on a big hit movie with great actors and then go back to North London and resume playdates and stuff like that! I'm always happy when there's an opportunity to do it."

ARROW

"Angel" alum J. August Richards discussed his upcoming guest appearance on "Arrow" as Mr. Blank this week with IGN, giving his take on the character.

"I would describe Mr. Blank as a sociopathic Nate Berkus," Richards told IGN. "Now, I don’t know if you know who Nate Berkus is, but he’s an interior decorator and he’s very passionate about the way that spaces feel. And so my character has no emotions regarding human beings. However, he’s very sensitive to the energy of a space, which I found very strange and very difficult to play. Also, he takes his work so seriously, that he spends his entire life making himself invisible, so that he can creep in and out of the shadows to do his work, which is killing people. And for him, it’s just liked data entry. It doesn’t mean anything. Killing somebody, there’s no emotion behind it -- it’s just like punching a number into a computer."

Richards also couldn't say anything about his recently-revealed role in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

"I’m just so not at liberty to talk about that, unfortunately! I’m so sorry!" he said. "I’ve worked with Joss… and it’s always great working with him, as well. But I don’t know… as far as anything else, I’m not at liberty to discuss anything else."
