TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION

The first trailer for "Transformers: Age of Extinction" has hit online, and confirms the rumors of a particular type of Transformer showing up in this installment.

Meanwhile, Yahoo! Movies UK has posted the first one-sheet for the film featuring Nicola Peltz, who plays Mark Wahlberg's daughter.

Opens June 27

ARROW

The CW has released a full 3-minute trailer for tonight's episode of "Arrow," "The Promise." The episode not only features the first encounters between Oliver and Slade Wilson since the events of the island, but also some scenes of the Suicide Squad.

Tonight's episode was described by Marc Guggenheim as the show's biggest yet, an assertion he backs up in a recent interview with CBR.

"It is a pivotal game-changer both in the present and in the past," Guggenheim told CBR. "In the past, we're going to get a major seismic shift in Oliver and Slade's relationship; and in the present, Oliver is going to learn that Slade is alive and well, and here in Starling City. There's really no way for the rest of the season to be the same as the first 15 episodes once we get past ["The Promise"], because Slade's presence just changes everything. Of course, it's going to activate Oliver in a very different way. Last year, Oliver knew that there was a dark archer out there, but because he didn't know who the dark archer was until episode 22 of 23, there was really nothing for him to do. Here, he literally has met his enemy. That will loom incredibly large for the remainder of the season."

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2

A new featurette for "Amazing Spider-Man 2" -- "Gwen and Peter" has started making the rounds online, and (you guessed it) it's all about the evolution of the romantic relationship between Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy and Andrew Garfield's Peter Parker.

Opens May 2

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

As is the tradition, last night's episode of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." had a teaser for the next episode of the show -- "Yes Men," featuring Jaimie Alexander as Sif!

Showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancheroen answered viewer questions on CBR yesterday, and teased possibilities for a second season, should the show get a renewal.

"It's not the only organization in the world and we have plans to meet up with other organizations throughout the world," Tancheroen said, "though probably not until a (fingers crossed, no jinxies, poo-poo, red flag ninety-nine times) second season. That's Jeff Bell's knock on wood ritual. The poo-poo red flag part."

GOTHAM

Rounding out today's news, "Gotham" has found its young Bruce Wayne and added a young Selina Kyle to the cast. "Touch" star David Mazouz will play Bruce Wayne while Bicondova is set to play Selina Kyle. The official WB character descriptions are as follows:

Bruce Wayne: "Sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon."

Selina Kyle: "A teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she’s dangerous when cornered."
