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

It's Tuesday, which means a new episode of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is set to air this evening. Check out this promo for tonight's episode, "The Asset."

Meanwhile, CBR's own Albert Ching spoke with "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." executive producer Jeffrey Bell about the challenges of the show, including arranging the Nick Fury cameo in last week's episode.

"The challenge was, in this age of tweets and spoilers, how to make anything secret happen and keep it on the DL for as long as we did," Bell told CBR. "That's Marvel security, who are very efficient, plus everybody here in the cast and crew wanted to keep that secret. It was cool, and hopefully we can find other ways to do different kinds of surprises, but it's always hard in this 24-hour news cycle, never sleep, tweeting world."

Airs Tuesdays on ABC

THE WALKING DEAD

Collider spoke with "The Walking Dead" executive producers Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero on the red carpet in advance of the show's fourth season premiere this Sunday, and the two discussed some of the challenges going in to the fourth year.

"Well, this season, we want to have the epic scale of some of the big sequences last season, but also make sure that we have the intimate storytelling and that the conflicts develop within the characters, in their relationships," Hurd told Collider. "We also wanted to introduce a threat unlike anything that they’ve seen before. And I think we’ve succeeded on both of those. It’s great having Greg Nicotero direct the first episode, and I think he really hits it out of the park."

CBR also has a "The Walking Dead" red carpet report, with quotes from the cast and crew of the AMC drama, including one from Andrew Lincoln about the status of Rick's approach to leadership.

"It's addressed in the teaser of the first episode that [Rick] is a man who's stepping away from that," Lincoln told CBR. "[He's] a quieter man, stepping away from leadership and the brutality of the world for the sake of Carl and Judith. … He realized Carl was going to a place no father wants to see their son turning; into a sociopath. For the sake of the rest of the group, he needed to step up [as a father]."
