New addition Adrianne Palicki, who has confirmed that she will be sticking with "S.H.I.E.L.D." for the foreseeable future, recently talked to MTV about whether or not her character Mockingbird will get to share the screen with her comic book ex-husband, Hawkeye.

"It is a huge part of Mockingbird, of Bobbi Morse, so I'm hoping to see that relationship in the future," said Palicki. "So whether it's getting Jeremy Renner on the show, or otherwise, you can't really deny that's a huge part of her character."

Collider has heard from an unnamed source that Margot Robbie will join the cast of "Suicide Squad" as Harley Quinn. Robbie has long been rumored for a role in the film, along with Tom Hardy and Will Smith, but she's the first to have possibly signed on for the super villain team-up.

The Robbie rumor comes just a few days after The Wrap reported that Jared Leto was being courted for the part of the Joker in the film. The report also mentioned that Hardy and Smith were in various stages of discussion about the project.

Renegade Cinema has a report from a convention appearance by "Walking Dead" actor Jon Bernthal that has led some to believe that he might be involved with "Suicide Squad" as well. The actor worked with "Squad" director David Ayer on the film "Fury," and Bernthal had nothing but positive things to say about the filmmaker. When asked if he would consider taking a role in "Suicide Squad," Bernthal reportedly replied, "I can't talk about that right now." He then apparently clarified that he did not mean for that to be taken as a confirmation of his involvement, but he also neglected to firmly state that he was not eyeing a role in the film.

The AMC has posted a sneak peek at next week's episode, and it includes more fuel for all the Daryl and Carol fans out there.

Entertainment Weekly posted a post-show interview with Michael Cudlitz that focuses on his reaction to learning about supposed scientist Eugene's true origin.

"Then everything hits the fan -- again," he said of the moment when it is revealed that Eugene is not a scientist. "Because once again we break down, we stop. But he's not going to let that stopping affect what they're doing. He's going to keep driving through and he's going to push the group. He's not going to let them go back. We're going to keep moving forward because moving forward is where the answer is, and stopping and pausing makes things go bad. So at this point he is completely driven by this mission and it's sort of unspooling him, because this is a very bad day for Abraham. Nothing seems to be going right -- especially with the vehicles and with the moving forward with the mission. At his lowest point, that is the point he's almost going to break because they are telling him this is a bad idea and he knows it's a bad idea. Nobody is saying we're going to stop, nobody is saying we shouldn't go on this mission -- they're just saying we need to do it differently, but he really feels that because of past circumstances, because of what has happened before, they have to keep moving forward in basically a straight line. Because right now the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, whereas Terminus wasn't. That was like, 'Well, I need to get to Washington, but it's more important that I get this group.' Now we have the group, now it's straight line time. And all of the things that Glenn and everybody are saying to him all makes sense -- that's why he's more frustrated than he is mad at them, because he knows they're right. But he doesn't care."

Forbes talked to "Punisher: War Zone" director Lexi Alexander about her being a favorite pick to helm the upcoming "Wonder Woman" feature film. Alexander definitively stated that she has not been offered the job, but she did say that another female director has.

"If she says yes, everybody will be very happy, including me," said Alexander. The director did express a bit of hesitation and acknowledged that bringing "Wonder Woman" to life in a major motion picture will be a huge task. "Still, I don't see at this point why anyone would say yes. There is huge pressure... If [a female director] does fail, then all of a sudden it's 'all women suck at directing.'"
