Picking up exactly where "Identity" left off, last night's "Arrow," entitled "Broken Dolls," began with a hooded Oliver Queen completely surrounded by heavily armed policemen. At Laurel's command, the vigilante is about to be taken into custody when all of a sudden a female vigilante, Black Canary, busts into the room wiping out her "Canary Cry" which in the Arrow-verse is represented by a small handheld device that emits high-pitched frequencies.

With the Starling City policemen subdued, Arrow and Black Canary make their escape. As the Canary vanishes up a nearby fire escape, Oliver heads back to his Arrowcave to figure out the identity of this mysterious, new vigilante.

The next day, Officer Lance gets a call from police dispatch about a strange murder victim found on the other side of town. When Lance responds to the call, he's told to stay put. Ignoring his orders, Lance heads over to the crime scene anyway only to find that a notorious serial killer, the Dollmaker, from earlier in his career has escaped from prison. Read More...

By Charles Webb

It's the good old "second movie costume change" as "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" swaps out Cap's red, white, and blue threads for something a little darker in this espionage-heavy sequel.

U.S.A. Today ran a pair of stills this morning showing off our favorite super soldier's new costume, lifted from Steve's (Chris Evans) revamped look in "Secret Avengers" alongside S.H.I.E.L.D. chief Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). And there's some interesting symbolism in the use of this particular costume that could portend the future direction for Cap-on-film.

We might be reaching a little here...

***Some minor potential spoilers for "The Winter Soldier" to follow for you non-comics readers out there...****
For those of you who've read the aftermath of Ed Brubaker's "The Winter Soldier" storyline and the subsequent loss/return of Steve Rogers, the "Secret Avengers" costume portends the First Avenger's surrender of the Captain America identity, which was then being used by one-time sidekick-turned Communist assassin-turned gun-toting Captain America, Bucky Barnes. Is it possible that "The Winter Soldier" could set up to Caps for a subsequent film?

Beyond that, we get to see the aftermath of the elevator sequence unveiled during San Diego Comic-Con.

Sebastian Stan returns as Bucky AKA the Winter Soldier in next year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" which hits screens on April 4th.

"In terms of 'Black Panther,' it's absolutely in development."

That's Kevin Feige, Marvel's president of production responding to Black Tree TV when asked point-blank about the status of Black Panther on film. T'Challa, the monarch, scientist, martial artists, and tactician has had a winding road coming to the big screen for years now, with several false starts and elliptical starts as Marvel and the various rights holders who've had their hands on the character over the years have attempted to launch only the second black superhero franchise on film after "Blade."

The long and the short of it is Wonder Woman will be in 2015's "Batman vs. Superman." Or she won't. And for the time being, the studio behind the film is better off not saying anything one way or the other.

Without providing a firm confirmation or denial, Warner Bros. president of creative development and worldwide production Greg Silverman hinted at the studio's vision for a cinematic version of the Amazonian princess (as well as other heroes of the DCU).

Responding to Variety during their Entertainment and Tech Summit, Silverman offered this when asked about the possibility of the character making her way into "Superman vs. Batman" (or her own standalone movie): Read More...

"[Laughs] We did not hire James Spader to do a robot voice."

That's Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige speaking to The Huffington Post about casting the "Less Than Zero" and "The Practice" star as the titular villain in 2015's "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," where Feige says that fans should expect more than just the actor's voice being used in the sequel.

Feige says director Joss Whedon plans to employ both face and performance capture in the film, which sees Hank Pym's android creation unleashed upon the Marvel cinematic universe. Feige again: Read More...

In this clip from the upcoming home video release of the documentary, "Necessary Evil: Super-Villains of DC Comics," find out how the villains of the DCU function as mirrors of their heroic counterparts. "Pacific Rim" and "Hellboy" director Guillermo Del Toro offers his own take on what makes an effective bad guy: "I think a good nemesis for a hero needs to have some of the hero in him." He adds "You are defined as much by the darker side of the mythology as you are by the light side of mythology.

After the season premiere of "The Walking Dead" ended badly for one young member of the cast, this week promised some serious trouble behind the prison walls.
