Entertainment Weekly has revealed the latest in a line of new posters created to tie in with episodes of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Declan Shalvey and Jordie Bellaire have created a poster focusing on Agent Coulson and the villains at the heart of next week's episode, "One of Us." The poster depicts Kyle MacLachlan's Cal Zabo looming over Coulson and the rest of Zabo's cohorts. Among them are Drea De Matteo's clawed character Karla Faye Gideon and quasi-forgotten Marvel villain Angar, played by Jeff Daniel Phillips.


The CW has released a new poster image featuring Oliver Queen front and center, teasing "Arrow's" return on Wednesday, March 18. The show has been on hiatus ever since the February 25 episode "Nanda Parbat," which saw Ra's al Ghul make Oliver Queen a very interesting offer.


Uproxx has an interview with Vincent D'Onofrio where the actor talks about his role as Kingpin and what has yet to be revealed.

"I tweeted out the other day that I watch these trailers and they make me so proud of all the work that we did," said D'Onofrio. "But, at the same time, there's so much that you guys don't know what you're going to get. There's so much in our show. And there's so much they're not giving away. I mean, it gets so intense and so emotional. It's really quite something. It goes to places you would never think it goes because of what Jeph Loeb and Steven DeKnight wanted to do. It really does."

D'Onofrio also talked about the chances of him appearing as Kingpin in other Marvel projects. "I actually have no idea. Marvel doesn't tell you about their plans, they just tell you how happy they are with you and give you all of this creative freedom and stuff. But, the one thing they keep secret is what their plans are. They tell you eventually, but not while it's all still in the planning stage. They keep it to themselves. I actually have no idea."
