CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
Following brief teases on Twitter and rumors circulating online, it’s been confirmed that “The Grey” actor Frank Grillo will play Crossbones in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”. As exciting as the news of Crossbones’ involvement in the “Captain America” sequel is, there’s still more fun Marvel Cinematic Universe teases to come. In the initial reveal posted by Variety, Cobie Smulders (who played Maria Hill in “The Avengers”) is listed among the cast of the film — which means there will likely be a little S.H.I.E.L.D. involvement when Cap takes on Crossbones.

THE WALKING DEAD
Robert Kirkman and David Morrissey spoke with CBR about the appearance of the Governor is the most recent episode of “The Walking Dead” and how Morrissey prepared to portray one of the most iconic antagonists in the history of the comic.
“Any successful leader has to sort of know the people around them and how he can manipulate them, how he can trust them,” Morrissey said. “I think a bit it’s safe to say ‘cults’ because we all like to believe that we don’t live in that type of domain, whereas I think all of us are subject to certain types of leadership sort of mindfucks, really. … We are played with in that way in our societies whether we like it or not.”
A new sneak peek at next week’s episode, “Killer Within” has also hit the web and deals with securing the prison grounds from the hordes of undead.

MAN OF STEEL
The unofficial “Man of Steel” Facebook page has posted a nifty logo animation of Superman’s S-shield. UPDATE: I earlier reported this as an official reveal, but that is not the case — it’s an unofficial video.
Additionally, E! Online spoke with “Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder about whether he’ll be back for a sequel, but Snyder stayed coy about it.
“We like to take it one step at a time and not curse anything,” Snyder told E! Online. “It’s that kind of thing so we’ll see what happens.”
