In an interview with TV Line, "Flash" EP Gabrielle Stanton reveals the thinking behind bringing in another speedster -- Jay Garrick, as played by Teddy Sears.

"We didn't want Barry to get lonely so we thought we'd bring in some more speedsters," said Stanton. "It's always Barry's journey. The Flash is always about Barry, but these people who come in will show us different ways that The Flash can be... [Jay Garrick is] going to be Barry's mentor a little bit and help him really reach his potential."

Stanton also talked about bad guy Professor Zoom. "Zoom is going to be very different in terms of motivation, in terms of what he wants from the Flash, in terms of why he's doing what he's doing," said Stanton. "I know a lot of people are thinking, '[Professor Zoom and Reverse Flash] were so similar in the comics. What's going to make them different?' I guarantee no one will confuse him for one second with what we did last year. It's actually much more different than people would think."

Returns October 6 on the CW


Lead actor Ben McKenzie talked to Entertainment Weekly about some of the problems he had with "Gotham's" first season.

"I think we made a mistake relatively early on in trying to introduce a villain and take care of that villain in one episode: catch them, send them to Arkham, do whatever," said McKenzie. "That was just a mistake. We should've never done it... The audience really wants to understand who these people are and live with them, sit with them and enjoy them. Whether they're evil or good, they are entertaining. So that's what we're doing in season 2. [It's] really kick ass. I think it's exactly what the fans want to see."

Returns September 21 on Fox


Collider has reported that "Guardians of the Galaxy" composer Tyler Bates will return to score the sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." spinoff starring Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood is not dead like previously thought. ABC has put in a pilot order for the show, called "Marvel's Most Wanted." This version of the spinoff is described as "a new take focusing on the same duo and their continuing adventures."


In an interview with Zap2It, Ike Barinholtz hinted at who he's playing in "Suicide Squad" and talked up the cast's comedy chops.

"I can tell you my character in that movie is someone you would not want at your house for dinner," said Barinholtz. "He's a very troubled human being."

Barinholtz then weighed in on the super serious trailer. "The trailer is very serious, but [director] David Ayer is a psychopath. As as much as he loves the dark and exploring the disturbed side of society, it's not like you're telling jokes, but if you can just kind of in the moment try to play things a little honestly and react to these giant, huge superhero things that are happening, funny stuff can kind of happen and there can be laughs from it," said Barinholtz. "With that said, who knows; when the cut the movie it might be very serious. But Will Smith is a very funny guy, Jai Courtney is actually a very funny guy, Margot Robbie is actually funny, so I think there is going to be some moments in that that actually make people laugh."
