THE FLASH

Digital Spy reports that "The Flash" will air on Sky1 in the UK and paired it with a cool new promotional image for the series.

The CW has released a new trailer for "The Flash," titled "In a Flash." There's quite a bit of already seen footage, but one or two tidbits of new stuff as well.

Debuts October 7 on The CW

ANT-MAN

A sharp-eyed reader on Twitter (via Comic Book Movie), has noticed a cool Marvel Cinematic Universe Easter Egg from one of the "Ant-Man" set photos. The ad for green soda behind Paul Rudd advertises the same soda that Bruce Banner spilled his blood into during the course of "The Incredible Hulk."

Opens July 17, 2015

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

"Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has found a new antagonist: the Absorbing Man. Marvel Television has cast Brian Patrick Wade as Crusher Creel, better known as the Absorbing Man, who has the power to absorb the properties of anything he touches. According to Marvel.com, "Creel will put Coulson and his team through their paces when their second season kicks off."

Wade will appear in the second season premiere of "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Debuts September 23 on ABC

CONSTANTINE

CBR spoke with the cast and crew of "Constantine" at Comic-Con International 2014, who discussed how close it will follows the story in the comics.

"Before Constantine was introduced in 'Swamp Thing,' nobody knew who John Constantine was," said executive producer Daniel Cerone. "The entry point for the TV show, he's the same guy, at the same point, immediately after Newcastle, that comic book fans met. It's that Constantine that our viewers are going to meet and we're going to build his story out. There's a lot of talk when we were pitching the show, is he going to have demon blood in him? Is he going to trick the devil? There's so many great things that happen in his evolution, but we're starting from a character that everybody can get to know."

Debuts October 24 on NBC

BIG HERO 6

Stitch Kingdom has posted a new hi-res photo of Hiro and Baymax -- not much new here, but it's certainly a cool teaser for the November-releasing animated film.

Opens November 7, 2014

DOCTOR STRANGE

Digital Spy spoke with Jon Hamm about the rumors of him being in talks for the lead role of Marvel's "Doctor Strange" film. The actor denied the rumors, saying he hadn't actually been approached as of yet.

"The funny thing about the Internet is you can have rumors go on about possible jobs and possible things that I had no idea," Hamm told Digital Spy. "Maybe! I don't know. It's funny when the Internet knows more about it when you do, but maybe they've been talking to somebody high up at -- maybe the Internet was talking to Marvel. No, I certainly wasn't approached, but I do like Doctor Strange. He's a cool, cool character."
