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

In anticipation of tonight's new episode of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," CBR spoke with Brett Dalton about Ward's recent shift and what the future might hold for the character.

"I don't think Ward has ever been in a situation quite like this. He has been undercover before, but the circumstances are very [different] -- I'm in a plane with five other people in close quarters, I've been with them for a really long time and I've had to wear that mask of Agent Grant Ward for perhaps longer than I have in the past," Dalton told CBR. "So, perhaps there are feelings that came up that are genuine because I don't think Ward has been in a situation like that before."

Plus, ABC has released the official description for the 20th episode of the series, "Nothing Personal," which features Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill.

Just when there's no one left to trust, Agent Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) -- from The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Solider -- returns to team up with Coulson as S.H.I.E.L.D. is being destroyed around them.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

Flaunt Magazine spoke with "Avengers: Age of Ultron" star Elizabeth Olsen, and while the actress couldn't say anything about her role as the Scarlet Witch due to extreme secrecy ("Any time they give us a call sheet or any time there's a new draft, they have to shred our old papers," she told Flaunt.), she did discuss the difference between Marvel's big blockbuster film and her time on "Godzilla."

"'Avengers' already has so much attention -- all the Marvel films do -- so filming something like 'Godzilla' was basically a cast of actors who are all really well-respected, [but] they’re just under the radar," Olsen told Flaunt. "We didn’t have anything like [this for 'Godzilla'], you’re just focused on making the movie. There wasn’t any other media part of it. It was an awesome first experience on one of these big movies because it’s been a really simple transition; there’s nothing too grandiose about it in my mind except for the fact that we had a very large crew and a lot of extras."
