BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

Warner Bros. has already given fans a look at Batman, and now the official "Batman V Superman" Twitter brings back Henry Cavill complete in his Superman outfit. There don't seem to be many changes from his "Man of Steel" getup, but there are probably many subtle shifts that I'm missing. Regardless, Superman is clearly back -- and the background looks much more like Gotham than it does Metropolis.

Opens May 6, 2016

THE FLASH

The CW has released a new video profile on "The Flash" character Eddie Thawne, also known as "Detective Pretty Boy." The video, complete with comments from Candice Patton (Iris Allen), details the character's role in the series when it kicks off.

Debuts this fall on the CW

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

A new "Guardians of the Galaxy" viral website has popped up online: Galaxy Getaways masquerades as an interstellar travel service, complete with a promotional video, theater locator, with a really good look at the kind of humor to expect from the film. Plus, there are details on Xandar, Morag and Knowhere. The site also has some pretty creative usage of Google Street View, where you can actually walk through some of the locales in the film.

Opens August 1

GOTHAM

Carol Kane has joined the cast of "Gotham" as Gertrude Kapelput, the mother of Robin Lord Taylor's Oswald Cobblepot. Kane is likely best known for her role in "The Princess Bride" as Valerie, wife to Billy Crystal's Miracle Max.

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

According to the official "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Facebook, the writers room is back to work, starting to craft the second season of the MCU television series.

Series star Clark Gregg spoke with IGN about Coulson's ever-changing role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and what fans might expect from the upcoming season.

"What's been clear to me is that the Agent Coulson who's running this team post-'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' post-Hydra, post-being killed and brought back to life with something in him he doesn't understand… He’s a very different Coulson than the guy who everyone knew," Gregg told IGN. "A lot of people who knew him in the old days say, 'He's different.' I think you would have to be different having gone through that stuff. So I think he's reinventing himself and re-understanding himself as a person anyway, which is probably really necessary to taking in the new environment and figuring out what SHIELD ought to be in a way that it doesn't get rotten again."

Returns this fall on ABC

DOCTOR WHO

Doctor Who TV has posted some photos from the set of the Series 8 finale shoot, which includes a very familiar graveyard -- in fact, it's the one where Amy and Rory parted ways with The Doctor at the end of "The Angels Take Manhattan." However, it looks like this time, it's the Cybermen who are in attendance rather than the Weeping Angels. Take a look at the photo below and click through for possible massive spoilers.
