CAPTAIN AMERICA 2
Spinoff Online reports that screenwriters Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus would like to add Falcon and Sharon Carter to the mix in the eventual sequel. “Sharon is meaty, almost to a point where you get a little uncomfortable because her relation to Peggy has shifted over the years, as time has passed.

As we reported last night here at CBR, “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke is developing a series based around Boston Brand for the CW. I imagine there will be lots of gravelly voiced dudes acting tough in a myriad of locations that all look suspiciously like Vancouver.
THE WALKING DEAD
Laurie Holden tells TV Guide that her character may leave the group with troubled number two Shane. “She wanted to go within the CDC [explosion. … If there is one virile man that’s an alpha male that’s capable of taking care of himself, why wouldn’t she leave with Shane?” she suggests. “A pack slows you down, so I think it’s a little bit of survival coming out.”
