GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

Marvel has released the first poster for "Guardians of the Galaxy" featuring the tagline, "You're welcome."

But that's not the only promotion the studio has released in the day following the trailer debut -- five short featurettes have been posted online, including one clip that showcases Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon.

James Gunn spoke with Pointless Pocast about the "Guardians of the Galaxy" trailer, and the director participated in a rapid-fire question and answer session.

FANTASTIC FOUR

According to an interview with MTV, Kate Mara wasn't actually sure whether or not she had the part of Sue Storm/Invisible Woman until well after the news broke. At the time of the interview, Mara said, "I literally don't know 100 percent that I have the part."

That said, it looks like she managed to confirm the casting later in the day, judging by one of her posts on Twitter.

ARROW

The CW has posted a Producer's Preview of the upcoming episode of "Arrow" that features the Clock King, and promises to have some character development for Felicity Smoak.

"Just in the same week that she's feeling at her most insecure, at her most lost in terms of her place in Team Arrow, along comes William Tockman to really force her to raise the level of her game," said Marc Guggenheim. "So it's a really fun, Felicity-centric episode."
