THE WALKING DEAD

MTV spoke with "The Walking Dead's" Chad Coleman, who hopes a movie of the popular AMC show will happen.

"As far as 'The Walking Dead' movie is concerned, I think it should happen," Coleman told MTV. "I would be -- I think it would be amazing. I think it would catch on like wildfire, I think everybody would love that, [just like] they talk about 'The Wire' movie, you know? But I really think a 'Walking Dead' movie is going to be in the works not too far down the road. I think it's going to take them by storm."

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Collider spoke with "Star Trek Into Darkness" star Zoe Saldana, both about her role as Uhura and as Gamora in "Guardians of the Galaxy."

"It makes me excited that I’m going to be a part of something, a world that’s going to challenge me -- I mean, I’m going to get to play green, I’ve been a blue one, so might as well be green," Saldana told Collider. "I really like the director, James Gunn, I responded very, very well to the script. I loved the casting decisions they’ve been making so far. I can only hope we kick ass and we have a great time while we’re putting the film together. And that the result of that, the audience will respond very positively to it and hopefully we’ll be able to make just as much as 'Iron Man' is making right now."

ARROW

GreenArrowTV spoke with "Arrow" producer Andrew Kreisberg, who spoke briefly about the appearance of Kord Industries in the CW show and how it could have a connection to SyFy's "Booster Gold" television series.

"Kord Industries actually plays a part in my 'Booster Gold' pilot, so, who knows. [Ted Kord] might be on two different shows, played by two different actors," Kreisberg told GreenArrowTV. "There’s a line in the 'Booster Gold' pilot where somebody says 'we finally have our own hero. Not like that nut in Starling City with the hood.' I don’t know if they’re going to let me keep that line over there, if they [Syfy] actually make the pilot, but it sort of makes me smile to think that it’s the same universe."

Kreisberg also spoke with Comic Book Movie about the show's season finale, set to air this week.

"I would describe it as an emotional roller coaster," Kreisberg told Comic Book Movie. "It really is a culmination of the season, there are things in it that hark back to the pilot and episodes two and three. It really feels like the end of a comic book run, it's really the final chapter of series one. It answers all the questions that were asked in season one and asks a bunch on new ones that will take us into Season Two. We shot it for more days than the average episode and spent more money on it than the average episode. Episode 22 [could be] the season finale of any other show, Wednesday's episode really feels like a movie."
