COMIC REEL: Rudd Addresses "Ant-Man" Rumors; Another "Tintin" Still In The Works


Although "Arrow" hit its midseason finale last night, there's still quite a bit to look forward to in the latter half of the season -- including that "Heroes" and "Prison Break" alum Robert Knepper has been cast as Clock King, and is scheduled to appear in the 14th episode of the season.
