AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
While looking at “Age of Ultron’s” crop of tie-in products, IGN noticed something very different about the Hulk’s Funko POP! Vinyl toy. Instead of his usual green, the Hulk is colored gray and features red glowing eyes like those seen briefly in the latest “Avengers” trailer. The image, originally posted by PopVinyls, shows off the Hot Topic exclusive figure. Could this mean that a gray version of the Avenger will appear in the film, or is this merely a repaint job done to create an exclusive version of the figure for a retailer?

Stephen Amell appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” last night and discussed his secret origin with the late night show.
The actor also discussed what it’s like living within walking distance of the “JKL” studio…
…and played “Name That Thing” with “Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet.
The new “Super Starts Here” promo advertises the CW’s two super shows and features Katie Cassidy in action as Black Canary.
“Arrow” showrunners Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg revealed information about upcoming episodes in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“I don’t think the audience is wondering whether or not [Oliver’s] really dead,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “It’s wondering how he’s going to come back. The answer to that question is really revealed over these next three episodes, which were designed to be a trilogy of what happened to Oliver Queen and what happens to Starling City and its heroes when their leader and their inspiration isn’t there to guide them anymore.”
“The reason episodes 10, 11 and 12 are a trilogy is the events of episode 309 were so epic on so many different levels, it can’t just be resolved in one episode,” added EP Marc Guggenheim. “There are repercussions that go for three episodes and really for the remainder for the season, if not the remainder of the series. The series will never be exactly the same post-episode 309.”

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE
Comic Book Movie has posted an image of Batman fighting Superman that apparently comes from t-shirts given to the “BVS” crew. The artwork is very reminiscent of Frank Miller’s work on “The Dark Knight Returns” and, if it’s movie accurate, gives us a clear look at what Ben Affleck might be wearing in the film.

Following Matthew Vaughn’s vote of confidence for “Fantastic Four” director Josh Trank, fellow “FF” producer Mark Millar has made similar remarks in an interview with Sky Movies supporting the filmmaker.
“Josh Trank, the guy who’s directing it, is a really smart guy and he and I spent a wee bit of time together when I was first doing this job, about a year and a half ago,” said Millar. “And I think what Fox is doing is very clever is they’ll get a great director on board. Like, a lot of people trust the character and just think this brand is going to be fine. But you can’t trust the brand because the brand can be done well or done badly, you know. But if you get a good director that is the cornerstone you build everything on. And with Bryan Singer doing the ‘X-Men’ or James Mangold doing ‘The Wolverine,’ Josh Trank doing ‘Fantastic Four,’ it all feels in very good hands. I think it all comes down to the director. It’s the same characters in every one of these movie but the work stands or falls based on the director, and Josh is fantastic. What he is going to do is unlike anything anyone is anticipating. There is a cut kicking around but I haven’t seen it yet, so I’m expecting big things.”

You can read a recap of last night’s “Flash” episode, “Revenge of the Rogues,” over on Spinoff.
The CW has released a promo for next week’s episode, “The Sound and the Fury,” which features the Pied Piper.
Here on CBR, we have an interview with incoming Firestorm duo Robbie Amell and Victor Garber. The actors discussed how they handle playing two halves of one hero.
Amell: We haven’t gotten to do too many scenes [with humorous banter] yet, but from what we’ve shot, there’s definitely a frustration with each other. We spend a lot [of time] in my head, battling for control. You spend a year that close to somebody, you need some time apart, so I think a little bit of the humor comes from us wanting nothing to do with each other, and being brought back together and having to team up to help out Flash. I’m really excited for future episodes, where we will get to have a little more fun together.
Garber: In my second episode, we come together knowing that we have a responsibility, and we both take that seriously. Frustration happens at first — where I just say, “You’re an idiot, I just want to get out of here” — but then, as things progress, we realize that we have a responsibility, and we both accept that. From there on, of course, there will be banter and conflicts, which is what makes it fun.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2
In an interview with MTV focusing on “American Sniper,” Bradley Cooper revealed what he knows about the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel.
“I don’t know anything about it,” he said. “Nothing.” Okay! So… yeah! Cooper also said, “I don’t know how it’ll work, I just do whatever James Gunn tells me to do.” Good to know that Cooper doesn’t have as surly a disposition towards authority as Rocket Raccoon does.

“[The costume] hasn’t been figured out yet,” said Isaac, “but one of his major powers is being able to change all the molecules in his body. So I’ll be changing all the molecules in my body… It’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
