Today's spoilers include our first peeks at Sam Rockwell and Mickey Rourke preparing to film Iron Man 2. Lost's Young Ben speaks! Plus Star Trek, Monsters Vs. Aliens, Terminator: SCC, Eureka, Supernatural and True Blood.
Even though the new Trek movie includes time travel, creating a new timeline, large amounts of the stuff in the movie is "true" for either timeline, argue writers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. And yet, the new timeline is different enough to account for any inconsistencies, like the Enterprise being built in Iowa. [Sci Fi Wire]
Director Jon Favreau Twittered a picture of Sam Rockwell during rehearsals for the new movie with Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey, Jr. And meanwhile, Mickey Rourke was photographed in New York — is this his new hairstyle for the movie? [IESB and TMZ]

Yes, Ben got shot... but Young Ben actor Sterling Beaumon says he's in two more episodes of the show. But there will definitely be repercussions from the shooting. It gets talked about quite a bit. And this isn't the incident that turns sweet, loveable Ben into older, evil Ben - that doesn't happen quite yet. And "that big older mean Ben that we know may not even exist," says Beaumon. Also, we may never learn what happened to Olivia, Horace Goodspeed's earlier significant other. And Elizabeth Mitchell says "there's a good reason" why Daniel Faraday is missing in 1977, which "flows really nicely for the character." [TV Guide]

We'll be seeing more supernatuaral stuff in the show's second season, says actor Carrie Preston.

We're going to follow Jason, who's going to veer off the path a bit, while Tara has gotten herself involved with some questionable characters. As for Arlene, she's not the sort of person to stay single very long. [Sci Fi Wire]
