ARROW

Although "Arrow" hit its midseason finale last night, there's still quite a bit to look forward to in the latter half of the season -- including that "Heroes" and "Prison Break" alum Robert Knepper has been cast as Clock King, and is scheduled to appear in the 14th episode of the season. This incarnation of the character earned the name "Clock King" by planning his heists down to the second.

Meanwhile, it's about a month until the next episode of "Arrow," but a fresh promo for the January 15 episode, "Blast Radius," has already hit online.

ADVENTURES OF TINTIN

Ain't It Cool News dug up an interview from BadTaste on YouTube with Peter Jackson, who spoke briefly on the status of the "Adventures of Tintin" sequel.

"We have every intention of doing another 'Tintin' movie and it’s just waiting on me now," Jackson said. "Waiting on me to be done with these 'Hobbit' movies -- pesky Hobbit movies. Get them out of the way, and then we can go back to making 'Tintin.'"

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

A new "Amazing Spider-Man 2" viral website entitled ElectroArrives.com has gone live, but has nothing but a countdown clock, which expires on December 31 at 10:00 PM Eastern. Presumably, it's counting down to something Electro-related, but no other information is currently available.
