Agent Carter

Weeks before "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." even debuts, the House of Ideas is already looking ahead at its next small-screen endeavor.

But they're not looking much further than what they've already successfully accomplished, according to a report on Deadline that says Marvel's new TV series could very well be inspired by "Agent Carter"—the Hayley Atwell-starring short set to debut on the "Iron Man 3" Blu-ray.

Diggle

FROM MTV GEEK

With so many new cast members and guest stars lined up to both help and hurt Oliver Queen in "Arrow's" second season, it's easy to overlook the show's returning characters. But John Diggle, Queen's bodyguard played by David Ramsey, is not a character to forget, as the actor revealed in an exclusive interview with MTV Geek. "Oliver... needs a moral compass so that the vigilante can become Green Arrow," said Ramsey, referencing the lead character's slow growth into the superhero archer fans love.

Diggle's a character that's seen his fair share of action thanks to his history as a solider, and that experience has enabled him to try his hardest to prepare Oliver Queen for the rough vigilante road ahead of him. "I think one of the first things [Diggle tells Ollie] is that he has no idea what killing another man does to one's soul." With so many new foes ahead, Oliver's going to need all the help he can get.

For more insight into "Arrow's" second season—and John Diggle's role in it—head on over to MTV Geek for the full interview.

Joss Whedon Thor

by Brett White

It looks like Marvel's taking that whole "overseeing all our movies" job they hired "Avengers" mastermind Joss Whedon to do pretty seriously. The job has been kind of downplayed in the past, seemingly amounting to not much more than showing Joss Whedonthe scripts for all of Marvel's upcoming films to make sure they all coordinate with each other. This is the first report I've heard of Whedon actually stepping in and putting pen to paper for a non-"Avengers: Age of Ultron," non-"Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." project.

In a "Thor: The Dark World" feature piece in the latest issue of SFX, director Alan Taylor admitted that Whedon's talents were put to use polishing up a few troubling scenes.

Gina Torres

by Brett White

Wonder Woman has been making a lot of news lately in the comic book movie world, only because a feature film starring one of the most popular and well-known superheroes still hasn't been greenlit. Yep, the Flash gets both a film and TV series developed simultaneously while Wonder Woman's TV show gets postponed—again. DC and Warner Bros. keep going back to Superman and Batman, two heroes who will be teaming up while the third member of DC's Trinity remains shut out.

None of that means that the Amazonian isn't at the forefront of fans' minds, and they want Gina Torres to bring her to life. The actor, known for her roles on "Suits" and playing Zoe on "Firefly," has long been the top contender to bring Wonder Woman to life, a fact that still surprises her, as she revealed to Vulture.

"You know, she is a superhero that has been a part of my life since I can remember, and it is incredibly gratifying and heartwarming and wonderful that this campaign continues to have a life — even though it might be maybe three or four people that are keeping it alive. I love them!"

"Sesame Street" seems to be on a super streak lately, as the Man of Steel himself—Henry Cavill—has now mixed it up with the Muppets just a few weeks after Tom Hiddleston taught Cookie Monster about delayed gratification.

Cavill helps teach Elmo about the concept of respect, and then saves the three little pigs from meeting a disastrous fate. Don't worry—Cavill let's the Big Bad Wolf off much easier than he did Zod in "Man of Steel." This is "Sesame Street," after all! You can check out the full clip below, and be sure to take this lesson with you as you interact with people on the internet for the rest of... forever. For the rest of forever.

Unthinkable

FROM MTV GEEK

Following the "2 Guns" feature film and the recently optioned "Day Men," it now looks like Boom! Studios is expanding into television with "Unthinkable." According to The Hollywood Reporter, The 2009 limited series by Mark Sable and Julian Totino Tedesco is being developed for Fox by Howard Gordon of "24," "X-Files" and "Homeland" fame.

The story of an FBI agent tasked with working alongside a screenwriter in an attempt to prevent terrorist scenarios may seem a bit like ABC's current series "Castle," as comic book writer Sable told MTV Geek in an exclusive interview. "On the one hand he's the perfect TV hero. Who better to stop a terrorist scenario than the guy who dreamed it up."

As far-fetched as the premise might seem, Sable revealed that it's all based in reality. "After 9/11, the government really did put together a think tank of screenwriters and novelists trying to come up with worst case terrorist scenarios before the bad guys did."

For more on the in-development comic book adaptation, check out MTV Geek's full exclusive interview with Mark Sable.

Magneto Wolverine

by Brett White

While talking up his new drama—the critically-acclaimed "Prisoners"—to The Daily Beast, Hugh Jackman dropped a bit of info regarding Wolverine's relationship with Michael Fassbender's Magneto in next year's mutant movie, "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

"It's fair to say we don't get on that well," said Jackman in a definite understatement. "I get sent back to the past and he has no idea who I am, but you can imagine Wolverine has a bit of fun with that."

Red Hood

by Brett White

While we have to wait a few more years to find out how the casting pans out, there's one thing that a Ben Affleck Batman does signal: no more appearances by Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Robin John Blake.

Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" concluded with Blake as the heir to Bruce Wayne's Bat-mantle, a development that would surely have led to a very interesting—and very different—status quo for Gotham City. But with Batman's fate now firmly tangled up with Superman's, a void has been created—one that filmmakers Woody Tondorf and Chris Landa hope to fill with "The Dark Knight Legacy."
