THE WALKING DEAD

New details for "The Walking Dead" season four have hit online via a promo released by AMC with new footage.

ComicBook.com has posted the titles and descriptions of the first four episodes of the fourth season. Check it out below.

EPISODE 401: 30 Days Without An Accident – Rick and the group are as close to an ideal life as possible at the prison. Will they be able to hold on to humanity in the face of a new evil?

EPISODE 402: Infected – As the group faces a brand new enemy, Rick and the others must fight to protect the livelihood they worked so hard to create at the prison.

EPISODE 403: Isolation – A group leaves the prison to search for supplies; the remaining members of the group deal with recent losses.

EPISODE 404: Indifference – The supply mission faces hurdles; the situation at the prison worsens.

AMC has also put out a press release detailing the newest webisodes for the popular drama: a miniseries called "The Oath" starring Wyatt Russell, Ashley Bell and Ellen Greene.

“The webisodes give us a unique opportunity to see other parts of the ravaged world of 'The Walking Dead' while weaving in and out of our show," said "The Walking Dead" executive producer Greg Nicotero. "The crossover between 'The Oath' and 'The Walking Dead' ties in one of the most iconic images from the series, and gives us insights and history to yet another timeline. I had worked with Ashley on The Last Exorcism and brought in Wyatt and Ellen, who rounded out the brilliant cast perfectly."

Fourth season premieres October 13th on AMC.

THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Comic Book Movie has posted two new TV spots for "Thor: The Dark World." There's not many pieces of new footage here, but definitely enough to get a better idea of what to expect from the Thor/Loki relationship.

Meanwhile, Total Film Magazine (posted by Comic Book Movie) interviewed Christopher Eccleston about his role as Malekith the Accursed in the "Thor" sequel and whether Malekith and Loki form some kind of alliance.

"I've got to tell you, there really isn't that big a connection actually, when it finally plays out," Eccleston told Total Film. "A movie comes along with a baddie, and then [for the sequel] you add another baddie to that mix. But in terms of Malekith and his maneuvering, there's not a huge amount of screen time with those two guys together. There's an implied connection -- which Loki plays with -- but it's not a hugely developed strand in the film."

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Ultron himself, James Spader, has begun speaking briefly about his role in the upcoming "Avengers: Age of Ultron," though there aren't many details for him to speak about. While discussing his casting with The Independent, Spader discussed how excited he was to step into Ultron's A.I.

"I think it'll be a lot of fun and it's incredibly nostalgic for me," Spader told The Independent. "When I was a kid my best friend had trunks of comics and I didn't have any so I used to love going for sleepovers at his house. Also I have three sons and two of them have a great interest in comics so they're excited I'm playing the role."

Meanwhile, Spader discussed preparation for the role with The Inquierer, noting he had just gone in to take some scans.

"I have spoken to Joss Whedon about it. And yes, actually, just this weekend I went in for them to take very extensive photographs, head scans, body scans, and all kinds of things in preparation for figuring out how the hell I’m gonna fit in this Ultron character!"
