THE WALKING DEAD
Following the events of last night’s episode of “The Walking Dead,” Robert Kirkman spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about what to expect from the rest of the season after Rick and the Governor finally met face to face.
“With ‘The Walking Dead,’ we never do the same thing twice. Their next confrontation is not going to be the second time seeing them sitting across the table talking to each other and having a conversation,” Kirkman told THR. “It’s going to be a lot different — possibly a little more explosive, possibly a little more action packed.”
AMC has released a preview of next week’s episode, “Prey” and a making-of featurette of “Arrow on the Doorpost.”

The cast and crew of “Arrow” hit PaleyFest this past weekend, and The Hollywood Reporter has a full recap of the panel with upcoming tidbits from the show including a trip to Bludhaven, more Roy Harper and a large strike to Oliver and Tommy’s friendship, now that Tommy knows about Oliver’s secret.
“It changes everything about their friendship,” Amell said. “Aside from him being the vigilante, Tommy’s big problem is that whether or not I’m doing something virtuous or not, I’ve killed people. He saw me in the pilot, and I confirmed it to him, kill three guys. Tommy’s a good guy, he doesn’t want to see that, he doesn’t want to have to reconcile that his friend would do that.”

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
Dane DeHaan spoke with ComingSoon.net about his approach to playing Harry Osborn in the upcoming “Amazng Spider-Man” sequel.
“I don’t think you have to be a fan of something to do the job,” DeHaan told ComingSoon. “I think ultimately it’s important that I’m familiar with past takes on the Osborn story, more for like common, know-it-all ’cause it’s stuff I should know. My job as an actor is the same job, whether it’s a comic book movie or a gritty Derek Cianfrance drama, or a ‘Chronicle,’ or a ‘Lawless,’ which is to take a character and, for lack of better word, to breathe life into it. I’m a fan of acting!”

IRON MAN 3
Moviefone has posted a quote from Robert Downey, Jr. about the inclusion and expanded role of Pepper Potts in “Iron Man 3.”
“That’s the other thing that I have been pushing for,” Downey Jr. told Moviefone. “She’s in great shape, she’s really game. There’s all these genre movies and you have these capable women and they’re like, ‘Oh my god, some action is happening, I better step away or get caught in something over here.’ It’s like, ‘Really, is that where we’re at in the 21st century?'”
G.I. JOE: RETALIATION

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR
Movieline spoke with actress Julia Garner about her role in Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.”
SuperHeroHype spoke with Joseph Gordon-Levitt at SXSW this weekend, and the actor spoke very briefly about his experience playing Jonny in the “Sin City” sequel.
“It’s interesting. They wanted to have a movie where fans of the books would still be able to look forward to something new and unexpected, so they added a story,” the actor told SHH. “I remember being really intrigued by that and I was really looking forward to, ‘Oh that will be so interesting to have the actual comics to refer to as an actor’ but no I didn’t. I had a ball doing that, I loved doing that,” he went on. “I mean, Robert Rodriguez is a guy whose movies I’ve liked for a long time and he has creativity pouring out of him. … I saw Bruce and Mickey (Rourke) and I have a scene together, and Jessica (Alba). I was so stoked.”

MTV spoke with J. Michael Straczynski about his script for the announced “Shadowman” movie, and his reasons for taking on the assignment.
“A, I like jazz. B, I like the supernatural,” he told MTV. “And there’s a really cool mix between those two, not just in terms of the usual New Orleans, Voodooo environment, but what is music but incantation?”
SCHOOL OF THRONES
A tipster sent in this new YouTube webseries where “Game of Thrones” is remade as a high school drama. Decently funny stuff, and the title sequence is actually really impressive.
