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

CBR's own Albert Ching spoke with "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." executive producer Jeffrey Bell about what to expect for tonight's midseason finale and beyond.

"I don't think we should be led by fans, I think we should have fans follow," Bell told CBR. "People saying, 'faster, more, faster, more' -- you can never go faster, and you can never give them enough. You have to trust the stories that you're wanting to tell, have a plan, and hopefully at the end people will go, "Oh, they knew what they were doing, that was cool, I didn't see that coming, that was really satisfying." That's our goal. And we'll find out! But we think we have cool stuff planned, and from 10 on out, we're starting to turn over cards. If you think of 22 episodes as a movie, we're at the one-hour mark in the movie. Things are picking up. We're still building towards the climax before we get to falling action, but you've set the table for what's going to happen."

Meanwhile, another sneak peek at tonight's episode has hit online, featuring the return of Mike Peterson.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Bradley Cooper spoke with MTV about his role as "Guardians of the Galaxy's" Rocket Raccoon.

"I think Rocket is dynamic," Cooper told MTV. "He's the sort of Joe Pesci in 'Goodfellas' guy. You need Henry Hill."

BATMAN/SUPERMAN

Another actor is reportedly in line to join the cast of the "Man of Steel" sequel -- Jason Momoa, a "Game of Thrones" alum, is rumored to be in negotiations to join the Zack Snyder-directed sequel in an unspecified role. In additions to his role in "Game of Thrones," Momoa was also in "Conan the Barbarian" and was rumored to be one of the frontrunners for the role of Drax the Destroyer in "Guardians of the Galaxy" (a role that eventually went to Dave Bautista).

Online speculation pegs Momoa as a good fit for roles like Doomsday and Martian Manhunter, though there has been no mention as to what role the actor might actually be up for.

THE WALKING DEAD

TV Guide has posted some brief teases for the back of "The Walking Dead" season four, citing creator Robert Kirkman as the source. According to TV Guide, fans can expect to see Carol return before the end of the season; The Sanctuary will come into play; and flashbacks will play a role as the season heads into its second half.

That said, this is "The Walking Dead" and Kirkman can be especially clever when teasing the series. It's probably a good idea to expect the unexpected.
