X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Jennifer Lawrence spoke with Sci-Fi Now about her return as Mystique in the upcoming "X-Men: Days of Future Past" film, and what her character's status is coming in.

"I'm naked," Lawrence told SciFi Now. “But when I do get to wear clothes, I love the '70s outfits. … Some of the Mystique look is a little different, but we're still using the same paint. But she's different in this film too. She was struggling -- like a lot of normal humans -- with the way she looked, and she was covered up a lot in the first movie, but this time she is Mutant and proud."

Opens May 23, 2014

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

The official "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Facebook page has posted a new trailer for the upcoming pilot.

Opens September 24 on ABC

THOR: THE DARK WORLD

The Hollywood Reporter spoke with Chris Hemsworth about his role in Ron Howard's "Rush" and what it's been like to play Thor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"To be part of something that people love -- whether it's Thor on his own or Thor in 'The Avengers' -- is a chance you get once in your career, if at all," Hemsworth told THR. "I'm not going to complain about it, certainly, but it's a challenge each time you do it because you don't want to fall into just Thor, just being a two-dimensional character."

Opens November 8

ARROW

"Arrow" executive producer Andrew Kreisberg spoke with EW.com about the upcoming appearance of Barry Allen in the second season -- and the fact that the show needs to have an actor in play to play the fastest man alive.

“We’ll have to have somebody by Sept. 30, which is when we start shooting [his first] episode. So there is that timeline,” Kreisberg told EW.com. “But it’s been a really exciting process just getting to meet so many fantastic actors and seeing the enthusiasm that so many people around town have for the character. It’s just amazing -- I have pictures of myself at age 4 holding a Flash and a Superman doll. That I’m sitting here writing the Flash and Green Arrow now, it’s more than my little nerd heart can bear sometimes.”

Hopefully, a casting announcement will come soon -- especially considering "Arrow" has already found its Amanda Waller in Cynthia Addai-Robinson, who will play the mastermind of the Suicide Squad in the second season's sixth episode.

Returns October 9 on the CW

THE WALKING DEAD

AMC has released the first official season four poster for "The Walking Dead" featuring Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes standing alone outside a broken prison chain-link fence.

SESAME STREET, LOKI AND CLUE

PBS has posted a new "Sesame Street" clip between Tom Hiddleston and Cookie Monster to promote the phrase "delayed gratification."

Also, for fans of cult-favorite film "Clue," Buzzfeed has a fascinating account of how the film actually got made, with quotes from many of the stars and writer/director Jonathan Lynn. It's an incredibly interesting piece even if you haven't seen the film. Well worth checking out.
