CONSTANTINE

Hey, look! It's John Constantine!

The first photo of Matt Ryan as John Constantine recently hit online, showing exactly how closely NBC's "Constantine" will visually gel with the source material -- if the photo is any indication, it's going to match up pretty well. The photo contains both series lead Matt Ryan and the crew of the show, including executive producer/writer David S. Goyer.

NBC has also released the first official photo of Ryan as Constantine, complete with smoke effects.

iZOMBIE

Another DC/Vertigo project gaining a lot of traction in recent days is the CW's "iZombie," which cast actress Rose McIver as its series lead. McIver is best known for her role as Tinker Bell on ABC's "Once Upton a Time," and will play Olivia "Liv" Moore, who takes a job at the coroner's office to access brains she needs to maintain her humanity.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Press coverage and promotion of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" continues to ramp up. First up, a new clip featuring Nick Fury and Alexander Pierce discussing a possible favor.

Those looking for a better look at Emily VanCamp's Sharon Carter should look no further -- Marvel UK's Twitter has posted a promotional shot of VanCamp as Agent 13.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Collider spoke with Kevin Feige about how Scarlett Johansson's pregnancy will affect "Avengers: Age of Ultron's" script -- short answer? It won't.

"Well my first reaction was I was very happy for her and very excited for her, and my second reaction was we’ve gotta move some pieces on the chess board around schedule-wise," Feige told Collider. "But we didn’t change the script at all, which is sort of the most important things for us in terms of the storyline. I think the goal is for us to sit here talking about the fact that you would never know that Black Widow was pregnant during the filming of the movie when you see the final version of 'Avengers 2.'"

Collider also spoke with Chris Evans about the script for "Age of Ultron," and the actor was very positive about Joss Whedon's second run at the helm of a Marvel film.

"[The 'Age of Ultron' script] is great. It’s great," Evans said. "But I’ll tell you this: every time I’ve read a Marvel script, they surpass it. You read it and you’re like, ‘Well this is gonna be great,’ and then they make it and it’s even better. The script is great, it’s great. So if that’s any indication, I think we’re in for a good movie."

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

"Heroes" alum Adrian Pasdar is set to guest-star on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." as Glenn Talbot, longtime comic book antagonist to the Hulk.

"We came through and it was fun to be on the set and work with these folks on the show. The way that they filmed [my scene] was very interesting," Pasdar told Marvel.com about his experience on the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." set. "It was a live feed. [Coulson’s team are] in the control room and I come over a monitor. So I was filming it in another room off of a camera, [and] it was a live feed to them in that room, so it was really happening. It was in-camera, it wasn’t going to be superimposed, so my face would come on eight feet tall and six feet wide. I don’t know how much people can handle of that. I’m glad I didn’t have to look at it. But it was fun to be able to talk into the camera, and they had a microphone set up and a speaker so I could hear their responses and we played the scene out in real time. It’s kind of like a throwback to old television, where they would go from room to room with the camera. They’d go from Camera A to Camera B and then come back on to Camera A and then move over to Set 3 and it’d all be happening in real time."

Television listings posted on Zap2It reveal the title of the April 8 episode of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.": "Turn, Turn, Turn."
