First Class

Ever since "X-Men: First Class" made a splash in last summer's blockbuster scene, there's been plenty of talk about what direction the sequel will take the franchise in. It seems a guarantee that leading lady Jennifer Lawrence will make a return in the as-yet-untitled follow-up, but it turns out that she knows little more about the project than we do.

"I don't know, I mean...if they write me in, then I'm in," Lawrence told HitFix. "But I don't even know if there'll be...I've only heard what everybody else has heard, just whispers. I haven't heard the official word yet."

When MTV News caught up with Joss Whedon at South by Southwest, the goal was to talk about his new movie, "The Cabin In The Woods." Still, we’d be remiss if we didn’t ask him about finishing up "The Avengers," given how close we are to the film’s May 4 premiere. And given how long he’s worked on the movie, you wouldn’t be at all surprised to hear what he’s most satisfied about.

"The most satisfying thing about ‘The Avengers’ is that soon I will finish it," Whedon said with a laugh. "It’s quite an undertaking. Although listening to Alan Silvestri conduct an 80-piece orchestra didn’t suck. It was a really beautiful experience. Really, he did such a good job, it sounds so good. You’re listening to live music and watching the movie sort of form in a way that it doesn’t until it has that music."

It’s been a four-year road to "The Avengers," so you’ll be forgiven for not remembering a few details: the color of Pepper Potts’ hair, the number of eye patches Nick Fury has, the actor playing Bruce Banner, etc. There’s a lot to catch up on.

In order to capitalize on the film’s May 4 premiere, AMC Theaters will be holding an all-day Marvel marathon on May 3 with the five movies that have gotten us this far: "Iron Man," "The Incredible Hulk," "Iron Man 2," "Thor," and "Captain America," capped off by a midnight showing of "The Avengers." It’ll cost you just $40, a whale of a deal for moviegoers with nothing better to do.

After the untimely demise of a very major character in last week's episode, "Better Angels" picks up exactly where the gang left off. Back at the farm, the group pays their respects to the dearly departed. Rick's eulogy rings out over the image of Shane, Daryl, T-Dog and Andrea beating some walkers to a fine pulp. Which is truly the greatest send off one could ever hope to receive.

Meanwhile, the problem known as Randall has yet to be dealt with successfully. Rick, undoubtedly feeling guilty about his previous decision, agrees to let Randall go free off in the forest, miles away from the farm. However, not everyone feels the same way. Shane, who has been quite adamant about killing Randall from the get go, still believes that letting the boy live is the wrong choice. After a brief conversation with Lori, he decides to take matters into his own hands. This ultimately leads to the climatic showdown, between two main characters, that we've all been waiting for since the beginning of the show. Find out who we're talking about after the break! But be warned. There are spoilers.
