TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES

ComingSoon.net has posted an interview with "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" screenwriter Andrew Nemec about the film, its approach to the concept and the overall tone.

"Tone was a very interesting question on this movie as far as how dark we really wanted to go. It's really all in the conflict between the characters," Nemec told ComingSoon.net. "That was the driving principle. The color palettes that were chosen were not designed to be 'Dark Knight'-ish in that regard. We weren't looking to make that movie. I'm a huge fan of that movie, but I didn't eat gobs of popcorn while I was watching that movie. We certainly didn't want kids to be running for the exits. 'Mommy! Why did he do that?!' We weren't looking for that. We really wanted to entertain and have fun with it. I think we skate -- we live -- on a very fun line in this movie, whether it's the action feeling real and exciting, but also fun and adventurous. It really never feels dark in a way that would startle you out of your chair or make you fearful."

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

Amy Acker teased her upcoming "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." role as Audrey, Coulson's cellist ex-girlfriend and what to expect from the couple's interaction.

"There’s a lot of talk [in the episode] about how it was when they were together. I think that one of the biggest things that they keep bringing up when she talks about him is how he made her laugh, and just the trust that she had for him," Acker told Marvel.com. "I [don’t] think anyone would have a hard time falling in love with Coulson, there’s probably a long line of people with that already. It just seems like they really had a real, honest connection. I know it sounds cheesy, but [they] really [had] a soulmate-type vibe."
