Entertainment Weekly has revealed the first official photos of Nicholas D'Agosto's Harvey Dent. The character will make his debut in an episode bearing his name on November 17. This youthful version of the character is being described as a "bright, charming, idealistic Assistant District Attorney whose sole mission is to eradicate the crime and corruption that has poisoned Gotham." Here are a few pics of that bright-eyed charmer.

If you like your Dent a little more Two-Faced, though, we got you covered.

"Agent Carter" won't just offer a retro look at S.H.I.E.L.D. when it kicks off in January. ComicBook.com has reported that Costa Ronin will appear in the show as Anton Vanko, the Russian scientist and father of "Iron Man 2" bad guy Ivan Vanko.

Marvel also tweeted a new picture of Ward and Skye, one that looks more like an album cover than a promotional still.

You can check out our recap of "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak" over on Spinoff. The CW has also released a trailer for next week's episode, titled "Guilty."

Entertainment Weekly talked to Emily Bett Rickards about Smoak, specifically Felicity's relationship with Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell).

"They are so much more than friends, but they're not a couple," said Rickards. "They're not in a relationship, but they're in a relationship all the time. They care really deeply for each other on more than just a platonic level. There's a deep love there. There's a very deep emotional connection you don't really get with everyone. It's special. It should be treasured, but it's also scary and a little inconvenient."

Rickards did not completely dash the hopes of those wishing to see Oliver and Felicity get together. "There will always be hope for the Olicity 'shippers to a certain extent," she said. "But Sara's [Caity Lotz] death is still very fresh. Having to take a lot of emotional responsibility for it doesn't leave much emotional liberty for other things, like romance and fun. They need something good to happen to them really soon."

An HD version of the behind the scenes footage aired during the "Marvel: 75 Years, From Pulp To Pop!" special has made its way online.

Even with all the big reveals they've made over the past few weeks, Marvel has not forgotten the "Age of Ultron" trailer leak that kickstarted their plans a week ahead of schedule. The Hollywood Reporter announced that Marvel plans to do some legal avenging of their own. The company has gone to a California federal court for the issuance of a subpoena on Google. Court docs reveal that a person using the alias "John Gazelle" uploaded the trailer to a Google Drive account, and now Marvel's looking for more information about Mr. "Gazelle" -- specifically the IP address associated with their YouTube and Google+ accounts.

The Wall Street Journal has an interview with Holly Hunter that might shed just a tiny bit of light on her still unrevealed "Batman V Superman" character.

"I have scenes with Superman," revealed Hunter. "He looks phenomenal. And to see Ben [Affleck, who plays Batman] and Henry [Cavill, who plays Superman] together is quite formidable. They are massive hunks of masculinity." So Hunter will share the screen with Superman. Adjust your speculations accordingly!

The actress also discussed what made her sign on for a big blockbuster film. "Zack asked me. He came to me with an offer, and I was like, 'Yeah, that would be fun.' It's fun to mix it up."

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that the film adaptation of Boom! Studios' "Day Men" has found a writer. Will Simmons will pen the "Day Men" script, based on the series by Boom! editor-in-chief Matt Gagnon, Michael Alan Nelson and Brian Stelfreeze. Boom! founder and CEO Ross Richie is attached to produce alongside Stephen Christy, the publisher's president of development.


Deadline has reported that "Gone Girl" actor Patrick Fugit has landed the lead role in "Outcast," Cinemax's adaptation of the Image comic by Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta. Fugit will play Kyle Barnes, a character that has been "plagued by possession since he was a child." The series went to Cinemax following a bidding war between channels wishing to score the next series from the "Walking Dead" creator. While "Outcast" has not been given an airdate yet, the show has a script commitment with a large penalty -- meaning Cinemax will pay the writer and producer a fee if a pilot does not get made.


People are speculating that a tweet from "Shazam" star Dwayne Johnson implies that the upcoming DC film will not have to be grounded in the same gritty realism that director Zack Snyder injected into the fledgling universe in "Man of Steel." Witness the Rock counter a complaint that "Shazam" won't be as much fun as the "Fast and Furious" franchise because of Snyder's influence in under 140 characters:

@dickfundy I guaran-damn-tee we're gonna have bad ass fun w/ Black Adam. (Its a NL/DC property). #Independence See u at the junket homie.

- Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) November 2, 2014

Johnson specifies that Shazam is a DC Comics and New Line property -- not a Warner Bros. one like the rest of the company's announced slate. This has led some to wonder if "Shazam" will be set in a completely different continuity, even though the film was included with the rest of DC/WB's upcoming film slate.
