UPDATE 1/7/2013 9:50 AM PT: The three scenes below can actually be found on the DVD release of “Firefly” — they were not new when aired by the Science Channel on the “Browncoats Unite” special, but this is the first time they’ve been widely available in a format other than the home video release.

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS
“Star Trek Into Darkness” director J.J. Abrams spoke with Collider about his time on the film and the expertise of the new cast members.
“I just can’t wait for people to see the movie. Benedict [Cumberbatch] is unbelievable,” Abrams told Collider. “It’s a tall order, coming into that movie, because the crew of the Enterprise — that cast — is so damn good and they’re wonderful to work with and they’re all good hearts. So, to come into that group, as he did, as Alice Eve did and as Peter Weller did, and be one of the family was something that I was doubtful could happen. And he completely did it. I not only love him in the movie, but I love him, as a human being. He’s an amazing guy. I can’t wait for people to see the movie and experience what he’s done.”

THOR: THE DARK WORLD
IAmRogue has posted a video interview with “Thor: The Dark World” star Jamie Alexander, who speaks briefly about her role as Lady Sif.
“It’s going to be a bit of a darker feel, obviously a little more action,” Alexander told IAmRogue. “We get to explore the different realms a lot more. You see a lot more Asgard and you get to see the people of Asgard and that sort of thing.”
The actress further stated there would be a little more character development for Sif, and teased another cool development.
“We sort of explore the Sif/Thor relationship a little bit,” she said, noting that it was “kind of” romantic. “It’s just getting a feel of who these people are and how they are the way they are with each other, which was fun for me and fun for Chris [Hemsworth].”

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
Nicolas Hoult spoke with ScreenCrave about his professional relationship with “X-Men: Days of Future Past” director Bryan Singer and his excitement at returning to the X-Men franchise as Beast.
“We’ve gotten along really well. He’s fantastic on the X-Men films,” Hoult said of Singer. “He really knows what’s going on. And from what I’ve heard about the script, I think it’s going to be a really cool film. I’m looking forward to it. I like that character [Hank McCoy/Beast] as well.”

Seth Gabel is set for a guest spot on “Arrow” as the Count Vertigo-inspired villain The Count, and he spoke with IAmRogue about his experience playing the character.
“I wanted him to have special abilities in some way,” Gabel said. “I really wanted to make sure that he had a physically intimidating presence on the street and that whoever he goes up against; he ends up being a very worthy adversary for them. … I threw myself into just taking big risks with the character, doing as much as I could to keep it grounded in reality, but at the same time not being afraid to be over the top. So I definitely have a voice of some kind or definitely some affectations, but they feel real and they were a blast to portray.”
