With only a week left in the season, the latest episode of "The Walking Dead" was only a warm-up. The real carnage should come on next week's season finale, which, in the manner to which fans have become accustomed, is rumored to be an out-and-out bloodbath. "This Sorrowful Life", on the other hand, involved only a couple of sad goodbyes — and one cause for (quiet, non-zombie-attracting) celebration. Ready? Here's what went down.
This new TV spot for "Iron Man 3," courtesy of Comic Book Movie, confirms with real moving pictures what we've previously only read about. And we gotta say, it's pretty awesome. For loads of new "Iron Man 3" footage, including some shots that really clarify what could be the central plot of the film, watch the new TV spot below!

Deadline has reported that Robert Redford, probably the most iconic actor alive today, is in talks to star in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." So, you know, how cool is that? That's literally the extent of the information Deadline has to give, but it's a rumor with big enough ramifications that we have to report on it and, obviously, have to start wildly speculating about. Who could Robert Redford be playing in the already jam packed "Captain America" sequel?
People went ga-ga over Spider-Man's new costume, set to debut in "Amazing Spider-Man 2." The new costume is quite faithful to the source material, somehow managing to put the old super-accurate Sam Raimi-era costume to shame. But not so fast, new costume fans! The redesigned duds from the first film are apparently making at least a cameo in the new film.
Andrew Garfield's stunt double William Spencer has Tweeted a picture of him wearing the familiar costume on the set of "Amazing Spider-Man 2." Check out the picture below.
Hot Toys is really laying it on thick with the Iron Patriot collectibles. Little more than two weeks after the company unveiled its Iron Patriot bust, Hot Toys has also revealed its die-cast Iron Patriot.
The "Iron Man 3"-accurate figurine is a 1/6 scale model and is limited edition. Based on what we've seen of Don Cheadle's character in trailers and images for "Iron Man 3," this collectible does look spot-on. As can be seen in the pictures below the jump, the Iron Patriot figurine has a rotatable machine gun and some light-up functions.
An excerpt from May's issue of Empire Magazine is making the rounds today, most likely because it contains the most comprehensive take on J.J. Abrams' lost Superman film from the man himself. Comic Book Movie states that the treatment was delivered to Warner Bros. in 2002, when the most impressive items on J.J. Abrams' resume were "Felicity" and "Alias." The project, called "Superman Flyby," contained a more psychological take on the hero.
"The thing that I tried to emphasize in the story was that if the Kents found this boy, Kal-El, who had the power that he did, he would have most likely killed them both in short order. And the idea that these parents would see – if they were lucky to survive long enough – that they had to immediately begin teaching this kid to limit himself and to not be so fast, not be so strong, not be so powerful."
Check out the rest of Abrams' pitch, as well as some concept art, below.
People can't stop talking to Ryan Reynolds about his languishing superhero franchises. He may be doing press to push "The Croods," but people want to know about Deadpool and Green Lantern! This week's Empire Online podcast features a lengthy conversation with Reynolds, where he divulges all sorts of info about DP and GL, going into even further detail than he did earlier this week (at another "Croods" event!).
The gang behind "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" are sure living it up on the set of the Ravencroft Institute. Director Marc Webb has been tweeting pictures from the fictional New York City-based super villain prison all week, including these of a room directory and actor Colm Feore. Now we have one more picture to add to our Ravencroft file: a close-up detail shot of a Ravencroft security guard, courtesy of Marc Webb's Twitter account.
"So it's a much bigger role in a much darker Cap Story. Lots of twists and turns. And lots secrets about the MCU revealed! I can't say much more or the Marvel cops will revoke my SHIELD clearance! Trust me u will all freak out in the theatre when all is revealed!"
A new report from Bleeding Cool mentions that prop sculptor Brian Muir is busy at Pinewood Studios working on "Guardians of the Galaxy." Why is Brian Muir such a big deal? When you're the guy that sculpted Darth Vader's mask, co-created the Space Jockey for "Alien" and worked on the Ark of the Covenant prop for "Raiders of the Lost Ark," you get to be a big deal. For life.
"We’re told that there’s something of a Star Wars vibe to the plans for Guardians," Bleeding Cool states, "and Muir’s appointment is a nice manifestation of this."
