ABC aired a promo for the next "Agent Carter" -- an episode titled "The Blitzkrieg Button" -- following last night's installment. If you're psyched to get more Peggy Carter action, though, you'll have to wait two weeks for more.

An article from Entertainment Weekly tried to figure out if Peggy Carter's future husband has already appeared on the series.

"There's fun in trying to figure out: Who is the guy she married?" said executive producer Michele Fazekas.

"We know from 'Winter Soldier' that by the time that she's in a nursing home, Peggy's had a family, she's been married, she's had kids, and we don't know if we've met that person yet," added star Hayley Atwell. "But it could very well be one of the people that she works with." The article has Agent Sousa (Enver Gjokaj) pegged as marriage material.

"If I am [her future husband], then they haven't told me about it for sure," said Gjokaj. "I'll put myself in the running. I'll throw my hat in the ring if they'll let me."

Yahoo has reported on a number of "Age of Ultron" toys, some of which might hint at a few spoilers for the film. Of particular interest are the Hulkbuster Breakout Set:

The Sub-Ultrons:

Don Cheadle may play a bigger role than just party guest in the film, if this War Machine & Captain America 2.5-inch Deluxe Figure Set is to be believed:

All of these sets -- Hulkbuster Breakout, Captain America Tower Defense, Iron Man Lab Attack and Cycle Blast Quinjet -- apparently join together to form the Avengers HQ playset.

The article notes that if figures for Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch and the Vision are planned, they have not been revealed yet. Black Widow is the lone original Avenger to not have a figure -- you can spot Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Hulk and Nick Fury in the various shots featured above and in the Yahoo piece.

Anthony Mackie has been making the press rounds lately and he's been dropping tidbits and thoughts about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe along the way. In an interview with Windy City Live, Mackie touched on the liklihood of him picking up the Captain America shield in future films.

"Well, you know there are many incarnations in the comic book, and we are now going into the 'Civil War,'" said Mackie. "So, if you look at it in the comic book, Cap gives Bucky the shield, Bucky gives it back to Cap, Cap gives it to me... Then Bucky goes off and marries Black Widow, so I keep the shield, give it back to Cap, and recently Cap wanted to be old, so he gave me the shield back and now I got the shield. I'm not giving it back."

Mackie also talked a little bit about his "Civil War" Falcon suit to HollywoodChicago, saying, "The new Falcon suit is gonna be much better than the old Falcon suit." Could this mean Mackie's finally getting the spandex and red wings he's been waiting for? Fingers -- and wings -- crossed.

"Kingsman: The Secret Service" and "X-Men: First Class" director Matthew Vaughan has seen director Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" film and he has nothing but praise for it, according to an interview he gave with Flickering Myth.

"I've seen the movie," said Vaughn. "It's good. I thought 'Chronicle' was a fantastic movie and [Josh] Trank has gone off and done his version of 'Fantastic Four.' If you like 'Chronicle,' then you'll like this. We're all backing Josh Trank's vision. And hopefully the world will like Josh Trank's vision."

In a new interview with CBR, "iZombie" executive producer Rob Thomas spoke about translating the comic to the small screen. "What we kept from the comic was the big idea, the premise, which was that this woman in her 20s is a functioning zombie," said Thomas. "She's not brain dead; she's just kinda dead. She needed brains to survive, and when she ate brains, she inherited the memories of the brains she ate. That, we kept intact. But because we were going to do 22 [episodes] a year, we wanted there to be a real procedural at the core. By making her work in a morgue -- in the comic book she's robbing a grave -- but by putting her in a police morgue, it meant that every brain she was eating was a murder victim. Each week, we could solve a murder case."

You can check out the rest of Thomas' thoughts in our full interview.
