Former "Doctor Who" star Karen Gillan is making the rounds promoting her new film "Not Another Happy Ending." Of course, that not being a Marvel movie, nobody wants to know about that and everybody wants to know about "Guardians of the Galaxy," where Gillan plays the bald and blue space pirate Nebula.

While on the junket circuit, Gillan spoke to Total Film in this short clip:

Fantastic Four

Fox is keeping it in the family as they approach the next "Fantastic Four" film.

Kindergarten Heroes

Mark Millar's movie mayhem is set to continue, with 20th Century Fox coming aboard to adapt the comic book writer's "Kindergarten Heroes."

Deadline has the news, reporting that Carter Blanchard has been hired to write a film based on the Millar project. As the name implies, "Kindergarten Heroes" is considerably more kid-friendly than some of Millar's other more adult-oriented projects like "Kick-Ass" and "Secret Service." Don't expect to see any swear-spewing, limb-slicing Hit-Girls running amok in this one, in other words.

Bolivar Trask

by Brett White

You can't always get what you want, as Peter Dinklage learned with his role in "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Or... did he?

The actor recently told Entertainment Weekly that he didn't want to play a bad guy in the next Marvel mutant movie, which turned out to be exactly the role he landed when he signed on to play Sentinel-inventor Bolivar Trask.

Grant Gustin

by Brett White

When events as big as the ones in "Arrow's" season one finale happen, everybody is bound to notice. And if you're a hooded vigilante at the center of those events, you can't expect to keep a low profile. With the arrival of Flash-in-the-making Barry Allen (played by Grant Gustin) to Starling City, Oliver Queen's about to get a fan of his own.

"Barry's a fanboy." said producer Andrew Kreisberg in an interview with Flash TV News. "He comes to Starling City and he says to [Oliver's tech support] Felicity, 'So I heard the vigilante saved you. What's he like?' So I think for Barry, it's one of those things where it's sort of like 'be careful what you wish for.'"

Wolverine

by Brett White

While "The Wolverine" was just a modest success at the box office here in the States, the film pulled in an impressive $372M worldwide and, must like Logan's healing factor, repaired a lot of the damage inflicted upon the character by "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." With everyone's favorite Canadian mutant back in fighting shape, the well-received film properly prepped Wolverine for his starring role in next year's "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

Now fans can check out the action they may have missed on Blu-ray and DVD when "The Wolverine" is released on December 3rd. A ton of special features play the Yukio to the Blu-ray's Wolverine, but fans will have to choose their release wisely. While both the Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray will include an alternate ending, a set tour of "X-Men: Days of Future Past," trailers, a featurette called "The Path of the Ronin," and a partner app for a second screen experience, only the 3D Blu-ray will included the "Unleashed Extended Edition" and director James Magnold's commentary.

Evan Peters

by Brett White

It seems like only yesterday that "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer sent the tweet that changed the landscape of the comic book movie world. It's somehow been four months since we first learned that there will be two different versions of the super-speedster Quicksilver in two different Marvel movies from two different movie studios and, therefore, two different cinematic universes. Marvel Studios' Quicksilver remains to be cast, although Aaron Taylor-Johnson was the frontrunner, but Fox already has theirs with Evan Peters. The actor spoke to IGN about being the first man to play Quicksilver.

"Well, my character can't be in The Avengers," said Peters. "It's going to be a different one. It won't be me, it'll be someone else. But yeah, I didn't focus too much on it. I mean, what an amazing opportunity to be a part of X-Men. I'm gonna try to do the best job that I can and not let anyone down. That was pretty much where I was at with it. I just thought it was really cool to be a part of all the special effects stuff and the movies that I grew up loving. It's awesome."

Mark Ruffalo

by Paul Montgomery

Though Mark Ruffalo's world-weary Bruce Banner appeared as recently as the post-credits coda to this summer's "Iron Man 3," his not-to-jolly green counterpart the Hulk last surfaced in "Marvel's The Avengers." Little over a calendar year, but for those audience members that went berserk for the green behemoth, it feels like a lifetime since Ruffalo got to cut loose. The pang of that absence is only accentuated by the reluctance of Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige to, ahem, greenlight a new solo feature for the character or even entertain the possibility. It's understandable given the Hulk's accumulated false starts with Eric Bana in 2003 and Edward Norton in 2008, but should the big guy be relegated to team-ups in Whedon's "Avengers" films, or does he deserve another shot in some hypothetical feature we'll call "The Indestructible Hulk"?

Graviton Big Hero 6

by Paul Montgomery

It should come as no surprise that Marvel Entertainment's growing presence on page and screen means more time reading scripts and memos for Joe Quesada. Marvel's ever airborne Chief Creative Officer recently sat down with Comic Book Resources to discuss his newly evolved role and how his roots in comic production prepared him for the breakneck pace of a weekly television series like "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Says Quesada: "I enjoy the fact that during the course of the week—almost on a daily basis—I'm reading something that's coming from the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' writing or production crew. Sometimes it's a brief on an episode or the latest draft of a script or a rough cut of a future episode or the dailies, which come, well, daily. Whatever it is that I'm getting, there's a constant flow of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' stuff in my inbox. I love that grind and that pressure. It reminds me of my comics roots. It's what I know and very much the way I learned to do things in a creative environment."

Arrow

by Alex Zalben

First up: spoiler warning for those of you who haven't finished "Arrow's" first season. Hurry up, because the show comes back in less than two weeks! If you are caught up, keep reading.

Looks like dead doesn't necessarily mean dead, in the DC TV Universe at least. After the climactic events of last season's finale, "Arrow" season two will welcome the return of a certain Dark Archer. Yup, John Barrowman—who played Big Bad Malcolm Merlyn—will return.
