ARROW

The CW has posted a teaser trailer for "The Scientist," the first appearance of Barry Allen in "Arrow." It's a brief glimpse, but the tag "In a Flash" is not so subtle about where the character's headed.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" viral website The Daily Bugle has been posting a number of short stories from Marc Webb's "Amazing Spider-Man" universe -- definitely worth checking out all of them. The most recent story hints at a plot point for the upcoming sequel: the construction of an Oscorp experimental hydroelectric power plant. Considering the involvement of Electro in the film, a power plant isn't much of a surprise, but bringing water into the mix certainly makes the case for another classic Spider-Man villain to come into the mix.

SANDMAN

Badass Digest has posted an unconfirmed report that talks have begun for the development of a "Sandman" film by David S. Goyer. Reportedly, Goyer has the support of DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt is already rumored to be attached to the project as Morpheus. However, these are only rumors and early reports, so it's possible that the project will never see the light of day -- if it exists at all.

THE WALKING DEAD

A new promo from New Zealand has surfaced for the next episode of "The Walking Dead" heavily featuring David Morrissey as the Governor.
