That's a wrap! Production has finally finished on the pilot of "S.H.I.E.L.D.," which means it's off to the editing bay for showrunners Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon.
Tancharoen announced the exciting news with the above picture on her Instagram. "That's a wrap. #SHIELD," she posted. It still will be a while before fans get to see this episode -- if they do at all -- because the show has yet to be officially picked up by ABC. We can't see the network passing on this, though, especially as we head into the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase 2. Fingers crossed this pilot will make its debut at Comic-Con regardless.

We know that Faora and other "Man of Steel" action figures are on the way. One of those other figures is coming courtesy of Square Enix ... but even after Toy Fair, we still don't know what their Superman offering will look like. Our friends at MTV Geek secured the next-best thing: a one-on-one video with a Square employee to find out all the details possible about the company's "Man of Steel" collectibles. Learn everything there is to currently know in the video above.
Add Alan Cumming to the increasingly slim list of former "X-Men" actors that haven't signed on to Bryan Singer's "Days of Future Past." But just like Halle Berry, the door isn't closed on Cumming just yet.
"I don't know. We'll see," was Singer's response when Huffington Post's Mike Ryan asked the filmmaker about seeing Cumming as Nightcrawler in the coming "X-Men" sequel. "You know ... we'll see."
That "we'll see" could turn into a "yes," depending on where Singer takes the "Days of Future Past" script.
If you were hoping to pop your claws into some new footage from "The Wolverine" this month, then put 'em away now — you're going to have to wait.
Superhero Hype reports that our first look at Hugh Jackman's return to the role that made him a star won't come until the end of March. It'll be paired with the March 29 release of "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," according to the report, contrary to earlier word of a "Wolverine" trailer hitting with this week's "A Good Day to Die Hard."
Director James Mangold confirmed the news on his Twitter account:
Two "Walking Dead" quickies this morning: up first is the news that last Sunday's midseason premiere shattered ratings records and ranked as the AMC zombie drama's all-time highest-viewed episode to date. Over 12 million viewers tuned in. We repeat: over twelve million. They weren't kidding about the outbreak spreading fast!
Meanwhile, if you're one of the few who missed out on your weekly dose of braaaains on Sunday, AMC has posted the full episode online for your convenience. Watch the episode below.
Enemies of "Arrow," beware: you won't be getting rid of Oliver Queen so easily.
The CW has officially announced that "Arrow" has been renewed for a second season, debuting in the fall of 2013. The network also announced renewals of "Supernatural" and "The Vampire Diares."
Warning! Major "The Walking Dead" spoilers ahead if you haven't yet seen "The Suicide King."
Is Oliver Queen finally reaching his breaking point? Judging by the two new posters revealed for CW's "Arrow," it seems like Stephen Amell's character is heading for some trying times.
The first poster, which shows the titular Green Arrow sporting his iconic hood and arrows, was tweeted out by Marc Guggenheim. It features the tagline, "Those closest to you can hurt you the most," and was revealed on the same day that the "Arrow" crew was filming episode 18.
The majority of the previous "X-Men" cast members are lining up at the ready for "X-Men: Days of Future Past," but not everyone is on board just yet. Though actors from James McAvoy to Anna Paquin have announced their return, director Bryan Singer has revealed that the jury is still out on Halle Berry.
"I can't say. I don't know yet. And it's not necessarily a deal making aspect at all," Singer told MTV News in a recent interview. "I want to make sure it'll make sense. But I love working with her."
Two Dixons are better than one — or at least that's what badass brothers Merle and Daryl are hoping as they set off on their own into the great unknown of the "Walking Dead" universe.
Norman Reedus and Michael Rooker are at the heart of a brand-new clip from next week's "Walking Dead" episode, titled "Home." It shows what's happened to their characters since the climactic events of the midseason premiere. Beyond that, telling anything would be telling too much.
