And I mean, it is just 'Babs gone wild.' She has free reign in Gotham for the whole episode, so it was really, really fun for me to do. And I've heard that it looks really great, so I'm very excited to see it."

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2

Vin Diesel took to his Facebook page yesterday to talk about the new scripts he received in the mail.

Posted by Vin Diesel on Sunday, November 8, 2015

Around the 4:15 mark, Diesel begins talking about the "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" script, saying that it's the one his "son is particularly excited about." Diesel also added that he's one of the few people to see the script. "I'm probably one of less than ten people in the world blessed to get this script so early," said Diesel. "The only time I get a script that comes with a CD, that's just how my brother rolls." Diesel then held up a CD with the words "Awesome Mix Vol. 2" written on it in Sharpie. The CD is the followup to "Awesome Mix Vol. 1," which was the integral soundtrack to the first "Guardians" film.

"I'm doing this live while I'm literally on page 93. I can see why my son is so excited about this," said Diesel. "James Gunn is such a great writer. I read this script and I go, you're such a great director and you're this great a writer too. No wonder Marvel is so excited about what you do. No wonder Marvel can't wait to see 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2.' It's one of those page-turners, you can't put the script down."

THE WALKING DEAD

There's a recap for last night's episode of "Walking Dead" -- titled "Now" -- elsewhere on CBR. And there's a promo and sneak peek at next week's episode, "Always Accountable."

Lauren Cohan talked to Variety after last night's episode and talked about Maggie's trajectory for the rest of the season.

"It's going to be a war between all her desires and resistance," said Cohan. "If you take war and potential loss of husband out of the equation and you just look at motherhood, and you just look at relationship with Deanna and you just look at new world having just lost sister and father, even if you took all those things away and just look at motherhood, it's such a journey ahead. I'm so excited to get to explore and portray the ultimate hero, which is a woman bringing a child into the world. Every single day is a discovery in pretending to do this, let alone actually doing it. [Laughs] It just makes me love my mom and my aunties and everyone who's had a baby ten times more. It's a righteous job, and the responsibility to bring life is heightened by the loss of life that we have. I want people to take what they will from the choice of pregnancy."

Ross Marquand also spoke with MTV about last night's episode and his revealing scene with Cohan.

"We were shooting like crazy. That episode was so packed; we were trying to get as much as we could for the edit, and we were shooting in this makeshift sewer system that they had constructed from scratch," said Marquand. "This massive, byzantine loop that was going around the length of the sound stage. And were in this thing for 12, 14 hours, and by the end of the day we were finally doing that big speech. It was nice, because we were physically exhausted, we were just shooting all day and all week long hours, and finally when she broke down and said it, I felt it... And I think when Aaron hears this news, he's so overwhelmed. It's bittersweet, heartbreaking news, of course, it's going to be so difficult to raise a child in this apocalypse world. I think the only thing he can do is comfort her with a hug, there's not even anything you can say at this point."
