ARROW

The CW has released a producer's preview for the upcoming episode of "Arrow," "The Promise," which Marc Guggenheim calls, "The biggest episode we've ever done on the show."

"It makes the season finale last year look like a student film from the 1980s," he said in the preview. "Our incredible stunt department went all-out. Our equally incredible production design department did an amazing job recreating the entire deck and bridge of the freighter just for this episode. This episode, apart from being just massive, features two iconic moments in the life of our series. It's the first time Oliver Queen puts on the green hood, and it's the first time that we see Slade Wilson put on the Deathstroke mask. This is the beginning of the relationship that will define the end of season two."

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

Den of Geek has posted the latest interview from its set visit to "X-Men: Days of Future Past" last year, this time posting quotes from director Bryan Singer, who reveals that the Scarlet Witch is not in the film.

"There may be a reference, but no, no," Singer told Den of Geek. "There are 26 main characters, and with seven of them, there were a lot of restrictions in terms of schedules."

ANT-MAN

Rumor has it that "Watchmen" actor Patrick Wilson is in talks to join the cast of Edgar Wright's "Ant-Man." Though comic fans will remember Wilson best for his "Watchmen" role of Nite-Owl, he's more recently known for taking on Ed Warren in James Wan's "The Conjuring" -- a role he'll reprise for the upcoming sequel.

Should he get a role, Wilson will join the only other two confirmed members of the "Ant-Man" cast: Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas.
