AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
Entertainment Weekly caught up with Adrianne Palicki following the debut of her character, Bobbi Morse, in last night's episode. The former "Friday Night Lights" actress discussed how her hesitation towards the role turned into excitement.
"Playing an action hero is always exciting, but it was scary, because I was like, 'I will never be able to play another Marvel character if I go forward in this role,'" said Palicki. "There was a lot of questions and a lot of weighing the options. The showrunners were very convincing. I'm glad that we all came together and I got to be this character." Palicki added that it is "absolutely" possible for her to play Mockingbird in a Marvel movie. When asked about her character's future on the small screen, though, Palicki kept her cards close to her chest. "That is up in the air still. She is part of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team. In episode 206, the world turns on S.H.I.E.L.D. because Hydra poses as them and attacks the U.N. All those story lines are still going; she's just now a part of that world."
And Marvel has also unveiled what Mockingbird will look like now that she's a part of "S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" world.
ABC released a promo for the aforementioned episode 206 following last night's episode that sees the team turning to an unlikely source for help.

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
It looks like we won't have to wait for the Super Bowl to get our first glimpse at the "Avengers" sequel.

Entertainment Weekly talked to future DC leading man Ray Fisher about the recently announced "Cyborg" solo film -- a film he found out about just before the rest of the world did last week.
"I didn't know the extent to which DC and WB had planned on taking my character," said Fisher, who will first play Cyborg in 2016's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice." "When I signed on, I just wanted to be part of this world. But that specific information, I found out then and there. I didn't think I'd be getting my own stand-alone film."
The interview also reveals that Fisher has wrapped his part in "Batman v Superman," where he met Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ben Affleck (Batman). "I met everyone in the Justice League except Henry Cavill [who plays Superman] and Ezra Miller [who will play the Flash]," said Fisher.

"It's great fun, but it also comes with a great deal of responsibility," said Cox. "I wasn't really aware of how vast the comic book world was until I became part of the Marvel Universe. I went to [New York] Comic Con last week, and it's really important to a lot of people. It really is. I'm having a great time."
Cox mentioned that he's read "comics after comics after comics" in preparation for his role in the dark series. When asked what specifically about "Daredevil" makes this the darkest Marvel project, Cox said, "The concept that he can't stop... He's going out, and he's taking the law into his own hands, and he doesn't know if he can stop."

In a report about James Wan returning to helm the sequel to his 2013 hit "The Conjuring," Deadline snuck in a hint that Wan is attached to one of DC's upcoming super hero movies.
When asked about Wan's relationship to New Line, studio president/COO Toby Emmerich said, "James will make an important movie for New Line and Warner Bros or DC, and that is definitely part of the plan, and a reason for bringing him into the family."
Wan made a name for himself with horror films "Saw," "Insidious" and "The Conjuring" before jumping to the action genre with the upcoming "Fast & Furious 7." DC and Warner Bros. have yet to confirm that Wan is attached to any of the announced comic book films.

Entertainment Weekly interviewed Danielle Panabaker about a possible romance between her character Caitlin Snow and the Scarlet Speedster.
"I see a hint of it," said Panabaker. "Both Barry and Caitlin are currently very focused on past relationships. They're both mourning other people that they can't be with, but that's a connection they seem to have a lot. I think there's something brewing. Caitlin puts a lot of her emotions that she has about [her deceased fiancee] Ronnie on Barry. She doesn't want to see him get hurt. She doesn't want anything to happen to him the way it did to Ronnie, so she's very protective of him."
