AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Yahoo! Movies UK has posted a video interview with the stars of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," including Samuel L. Jackson, who says not to expect a lot of Nick Fury in "Avengers: Age of Ultron."

"I’m just kind of passing by there [in 'Avengers 2'] you know. I’m not doing so much, I don’t think," Jackson told Yahoo! "Because, it’s another one of those 'people who have powers fighting people who have powers.' That’s why I didn’t get to New York in ’The Avengers’. There’s not a lot I could do except shoot a gun."

There are minor spoilers in the upcoming video, so watch with caution.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

CBR spoke with Shawn Ashmore about his return as Iceman in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and, more specifically, the differences between his character's last appearance in "X-Men 3" and "Days of Future Past."

"Bobby is a soldier now. Straight up. In 'X-Men 3,' he was a part of the team. He had his uniform. He was fighting alongside Wolverine and Beast and Colossus. But Bobby is a soldier, now," Ashmore told CBR. "They are running. They aren't really living anymore; they are surviving. There's a general attitude change for these characters. It's not as easy for them. That's what I came into this film thinking about. Bobby has matured physically. Obviously, as you age as an actor, you get to bring that to the screen. But, he's also a soldier. There's no messing around, anymore."

Comic Book Movie dug up a hi-def version of a new roll-call style trailer for "Days of Future Past" that aired on Spike TV's "Ink Master."

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

On the red carpet for the PaleyFest "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." panel, Clark Gregg discussed what to expect from the series finale.

"When people see the remaining episodes of the season -- what they're doing here is a slow build to something I don't think you've seen before," Gregg told reporters on the red carpet. "I can't really elaborate."

Although, if posters are to be believed, Deathlok will have a big role to play in the rest of the first season. Check out a poster of J. August Richards as Mike Peterson/Deathlok below.

ARROW

TV Guide has posted a clip from the upcoming "Birds of Prey" episode of "Arrow," which features the return of Jessica De Gouw as the Huntress.

Caity Lotz spoke with CBR about her role in the rest of the season as well as the upcoming "Birds of Prey" episode.

"There is the fact Helena is Oliver's ex-girlfriend, which I think makes Sara underestimate the Huntress. She thinks it's funny that Oliver has this crazy ex-girlfriend -- and then this happens," Lotz said. "Things get serious when Laurel gets kidnapped. Any time someone is threatening her family, Sara gets real serious, real fast. Neither one of them are super-stylized martial artists. They are very practical -- it's about winning the fight. They are both well trained and pretty vicious. They have different weapons, but they go hand-to-hand."
