ARROW

Marc Guggenheim stopped by the CBR Speakeasy for an episode of CBR TV, where he discussed a number of topics, teasing the second season of the CW's "Arrow" and the long-form nature of Oliver's journey.

"This was always sort of the trajectory we planned. This has always been the first two years of 'Batman Begins,'" Guggenheim told CBR. "In fact, last year, around October, right before the show premiered, we had a meeting with the head of the studio and we basically said, it's about going from being the Hood to the Arrow to Green Arrow. We knew all along that it would take us two years to do that. The thing that makes me worried is, the show works well because it has darkness to it. It's not gonna be all sunshine and rainbows in Season 2, I don't want people to get the wrong impression that the show is going to abruptly change, tonally. It's actually consistent in its tone even though Oliver has a more 'Aspirational' mission."

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Whatever happened to Justin Hammer? Sam Rockwell, who played Tony Stark's business nemesis in "Iron Man 2," spoke with Vulture about where his character might show up next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- and Rockwell's hoping for a possible television crossover.

"I was hoping to come back in one of the Avengers films and come after Gwyneth Paltrow, because that's what they set up, that I was going to get revenge on Gwyneth for getting me arrested or something," Rockwell told Vulture. "I could do a 'Cape Fear' thing with Gwyneth. But they've got a lot of mojo in there already, so I don't know if they need another pirate like me in the mix there! [Laughs] Maybe S.H.I.E.L.D. is the way to go."
