COMIC REEL: New "The Walking Dead" Trailer Hits; Fresh Look at Vision in "Avengers: Age of Ultron"


AMC has released a new trailer for "The Walking Dead" season five entitled "Never Let Your Guard Down." There's a fair amount of new footage and dialogue, but there are still plenty of questions left unanswered.

Plus, new photos from the fifth season of "The Walking Dead" have surfaced online, covering both new zombies and old, familiar faces of survivors.

Finally, "The Walking Dead" spinoff series received a pilot order last week. Described as a companion series, the show is expected to begin production in late 2014. Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert will continue their roles as executive producers for the spinoff, with the show's co-writer and co-creator Dave Erickson serving as showrunner.

"There are many corners of 'The Walking Dead' universe that remain unseen in the shadows. Being given the opportunity to shine a light into those corners and see what lurks out there is an absolute thrill," said Kirkman via press release. "I know the fans are anxious to hear what Dave and I have been cooking up for this new universe of 'The Walking Dead,' and I'm happy to be one step closer to sharing it with them."

"The Walking Dead" returns to AMC October 12


In casting news, "Constantine" has found its Jim Corrigan, with Emmett Scanlan taking on the role of the man who would become The Spectre. IGN describes the television version of the character as a New Orleans homicide detective as "obsessed with justice" and someone who "doesn't let police procedure or red tape stop him from putting away the bad guys." The character is expected to be recurring.

"Constantine" debuts October 24 on NBC


"Captain America 3" will not be Chris Evans' final film wielding the shield. According to Evans, Cap's still got some work to do before hanging up the stars and stripes.

"I have a few more [Marvel] movies I have to finish first, which I'm happy to do. I'm sure it'll happen at some point," Evans told MTV. "All good things have to come to an end. But I'm really happy playing the character. I'm honored to be part of the Marvel Universe for now."

Bad news for fans of Iron Man -- Robert Downey Jr. states there are no current plans for "Iron Man 4."

"There isn't one in the pipe," Downey told Variety. "No, there's no plan for a fourth 'Iron Man.'"

While there may not currently be plans for "Iron Man 4," the character is slated to appear in "Avengers: Age of Ultron" next year, which will likely give some kind of indication as to what his future in the MCU will be.
