The Governor

Bad things are coming in the back half of "The Walking Dead" season three, and we aren't just talking about the fact showrunner Glen Mazzara is leaving. With "Made to Suffer" ending on a pretty major cliffhanger, it seems safe to assume that things are going to get much worse before they get any better.

Chief among those problems is the Governor, who's lost an eye and his zombie daughter and gained a whole lot of rage. Robert Kirkman told Movieline that we're going to see a whole new side of the Woodbury leader in the upcoming episodes.

"We haven’t seen him activated to the extent that he’s going to be activated in the back half of the season," Kirkman said. "He's going to be much more engaged and a little bit more aware of the threat that the prison represents. He's going to be on the warpath."

Hiddleston

There was a time where Tom Hiddleston almost directed "Thor: The Dark World," but that time has since passed. That's not to say there are any hard feelings, though: Hiddleston is a huge fan of what "Game of Thrones" director Alan Taylor has done with the "Thor" sequel.

"I think director Alan Taylor is really shaping up the world of Asgard and the world of these characters," he said in an interview with Press Association.

The Avengers

The final battle sequence in "The Avengers" is one that's hard to forget. Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye team up together to take down the invading Chitauri army and defeat Loki in what ends up being a massive fight that stretches across New York City. It's impressive to behold, and we have the folks over at Industrial Light & Magic to thank for it.

In a new featurette, some of the supervisors at ILM explain how they made the epic scene work. After filming at over 1200 different locations around NYC, the ILM team combined digital and actual footage to show Iron Man flying in one long shot through the battle sequence, and they even had to replace some of the actual actors with digital replacements to make it work.

Christopher Nolan

Christopher Nolan has already successfully tackled the story of Batman, and he's glad that the Dark Knight was the DC superhero he was chosen to handle. In a new interview, Nolan shared that Zack Snyder has a more difficult task than he did in making "Man of Steel."

“In my honest appraisal, taking on Superman and creating that world is far more difficult than creating the world of the Dark Knight. [Snyder] has a lot of finishing to do on the movie — it has a very long postproduction schedule because, unlike Batman, Superman flies," Nolan told The Hollywood Reporter.

Tony Stark would like to wish you a merry Christmas, and a happy New Year.

Marvel Studios has unveiled a new image from the upcoming "Iron Man 3," and in it Tony looks like he's in better shape than the last time we saw him. Staring up into a snowy sky, Stark looks beaten but not broken in Marvel's holiday card to us. "Happy holidays from Tony Stark," the image reads.

Who can forget Tom Hiddleston's best role of the year in the After Hours skit "Loki'd"? Forget "The Avengers," this video had it all: Action, adventure, intrigue and even a little romance (just look at that sexual tension with MTV News' Josh Horowitz).

Fortunately, we've got a little more of where that came from. What you saw in "Loki'd" isn't all that was shot that day, and Hiddleston has dropped in to give us some hilarious unseen outtakes from a day that the MTV newsroom will likely never forget.

"If you liked that, then you're in for a treat," Hiddleston said. "I'm here to introduce some never-before-seen outtakes from that day of insanity and folly."

Which did you like better: "Loki'd" or "Loki'd: The Outtakes"? Let us know in the comments section below or on Twitter!

Damon Lindelof

Damon Lindelof liked "The Walking Dead" before liking "The Walking Dead" was cool. He started reading the comics when they first began, befriended Robert Kirkman at the beginning and then started watching the AMC series as soon as it started airing.

In a new interview with Collider, the "Prometheus" writer explained why he's so enamored with the zombie property.

"I think that that idea of — 'The Walking Dead' is not the title for the zombies, it’s the title for the survivors, and the show plays in this ambiguous moral space of at what point are you no longer a human anymore?" he said. "Wrapping that all up in some sort of very satisfying package where also zombie arms are getting torn off and heads are rolling and all those other things are happening, I think it’s an enormously tall order."

Tom Hiddleston

In some alternate universe, there is a version of "Thor: The Dark World" that is directed by Tom Hiddleston. We'll be seeing the one directed by Alan Taylor next year, but apparently there was a time when Hiddleston was considering following in "Thor" helmer Kenneth Branagh's footsteps and transitioning from actor to director in the upcoming Marvel sequel.

Hiddleston caught up with Empire (via ComicBookMovie.com) in a recent interview, and the magazine asked him if he'd ever had any interest in directing. He said he did, and even approached Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige about potentially helming "Thor: The Dark World."

The Wolverine

Hugh Jackman isn't the only one making a cameo in a future "X-Men" movie. The "Les Miserables" star has confirmed that we'll be seeing another familiar face in "The Wolverine."

"There is a cameo from one of the past X-Men in it," Jackman told Parade. Though that was as much as he elaborated on the subject, we have a feeling we know who he could be talking about: Famke Janssen.

Samuel L. Jackson

Samuel L. Jackson is one cool dude. It doesn't matter how old he gets or what roles he takes, because he's bound to make them cool just because he's playing them. That can be said for everything from "The Avengers" to "Pulp Fiction" to "Snakes on a Plane" — and even the M. Night Shyamalan movie "Unbreakable."

During a recent conversation with the Huffington Post, Jackson talked about his streak of cool characters and where they started, and also touched upon the subject of "Unbreakable." That launched him into a lengthy and interesting discussion of Shyamalan as a director, and how he stacks up to someone like Quentin Tarantino.

"I don't choose roles because of [being cool]," Jackson explained. "Sometimes, people will just attribute stuff to it. It's like Elijah [Price, Jackson's character] in 'Unbreakable.' You know, people say he's 'cool.' He's a f--king breakable nerd. And they go, 'That f--king coat and your hair — he's just cool.' And I'm like, 'Really?'"
