All that plus Joss Whedon explains the evolution of Iron Man's look in The Avengers.
Vin Diesel releases two more photos from the set of the third Riddick movie.

Director Joss Whedon confirms there will be multiple Iron Man suits in the film, which he attributes to "wear and tear" Tony Stark encounters while fighting Loki. He also explains how he used Marvel's request for multiple suits as a way to get back to the original design for Iron Man's chest:
"Marvel said, 'We like to see the suits evolve,' and I said, "Great! Then you're going back to the circle because the triangle is ass.' I'm a classicist. The circle has meaning, the triangle does not."
X-Men: First Class
Zack Stentz, who worked on the screenplay for X-Men: First Class, tweeted that his life's ambition is to include the David Bowie song "Oh! You Pretty Things" in an X-Men movie. And "I think I've got a pretty good shot at succeeding." That particular song was on the 1971 album Hunky Dory, in case you want to use its potential inclusion to speculate on the next movie's timeline — although last we heard, the X-Men: First Class sequel was actually being written by Simon Kinberg.

Here are the first set photos of No Country for Old Men star Javier Bardem in the latest James Bond movie. His character is thought to be the main villain of the movie, but we know pretty much nothing about his character beyond that — his character hasn't even been the subject of rumors like Ralph Fiennes's has. As we can see here, he's dressed as a British police officer. And, much as I might love the idea of James Bond taking on some random constable — who also has a Spanish accent for some reason — I'm going to guess his character is in disguise here, so we can probably expect a bit more subterfuge and misdirection than Daniel Craig's last two Bond villains provided. Also, Bardem has apparently dyed his hair blonde, which I kind of hope is just to screw with all the fans who thought Daniel Craig's hair color disqualified him from being a good James Bond.
Star Vin Diesel has posted two more set photos to his Facebook page. [ShockTillYouDrop]

Beauty and the Beast (ABC)
Star Trek: Insurrection villain F. Murray Abraham, who I'm guessing would really prefer I call him something like Amadeus Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham instead, has reportedly been cast as the chancellor to Emperor Dorian, the father of the show's title beauty, Princess Grace. (Another report lists him as the Emperor himself, for what it's worth.) Joining him in the emperor's cabinet is reportedly The Vow's Wendy Crewson, whose character will also be a friend of the princess. [Deadline and Deadline]
Here's a sneak peek at this week's episode and sixteenth overall, "Out with the Old."
[gallery 5892363] And here are some promo photos for the episode. [Multiple Verses]
The last two episodes of season seven will reportedly be called "There Will Be Blood" and "Get Dick." You know, while an eighth season is pretty much a certainty at this point, I feel like it would be pretty awesomely Supernatural for the show to go out on an episode called "Get Dick." [SpoilerTV]
American Horror Story
The show is reportedly looking to cast Jessica Lange's nemesis in season two, described as a white woman in her mid-20s named Gia who is "a fierce, ferocious, extremely sexual and dangerous wild-child sexpot who harbors a secret." The character Gia is said to be like "Angelina Jolie in Girl, Interrupted", as opposed to Angelina Jolie as Gia, in which she played a character named Gia. Just so we're clear. [TV Line]
Being Human star Sam Huntington will appear in a fourth season episode as Ethan, a role executive producer Jack Kenny describes as a man "desperate to leave his mark on the world of New Orleans jazz-even if it means a great sacrifice." For his part, Huntington had this to say about the role:
"My plot on the show is really interesting because I'm a fan of the genre, so it's cool to be on a different sci-fi show with different rules for the world. The artifact is not what you're led to believe."
Being Human (US)
In the same article, Sam Huntington offers this preview of the end of season two:
Massive cliffhangers. hey're all in crazy peril both individually and as a unit. If we ended the show right now, people would be so furious!"
Here's a pair of casting calls for some new additions for season three of the Syfy series, which starts filming on April 18:
[DR. KATHERINE "KAT" DAVIS] Early 30s. Smart, pretty, with an enthusiastic, live-for-today attitude — a by-product of living in a place where there may not be a tomorrow. Kat is intuitive and can be painfully blunt. She's never intentionally cruel — it's just the way she looks at the world. She has a sweet heart, but sometimes her directness can come off a little brash. Born and raised in Haven, Kat left a happy and well-adjusted family to earn her degree in psychiatry. She's a well-trained and thoroughly modern psychiatrist. Kat practiced in Boston for a year until a tragedy involving one of her patients sent her back home. Kat hung a shingle in Haven, and her practice did well (Haven needs shrinks). Kat becomes a close friend and confidant to our lead, Audrey Parker. She also uses her skills as a psychiatrist to help the troubled of Haven deal with their afflictions, and to help Audrey Parker "profile" potential perpetrators. MAJOR RECURRING GUEST LEAD. ALL ETHNICITIES.
[TOMMY HARPER] Mid 30s to late 40s. He is a street-smart, tough cop who comes to Haven on an investigation and, for reasons the other characters speculate might be illicit, decides to stay. He is a fish out of water, completely opposite of everyone else in the L.L. Bean world of Haven, Maine. He could be a big city cop from NY or Chicago, or a slick Southerner, or from some interesting place anywhere in the world — he just isn't like anyone else here.
Tommy eventually becomes part of the Haven Police force, where he brings his own special skills to the team. Tough but deeply emotional underneath, Tommy is guarded about his own life. As much as we like and trust him at the outset, we'll come to wonder what secrets he's hiding, and why. RECURRING GUEST LEAD — PROB 5 EP ARC. ALL ETHNICITIES AND NATIONALITIES.
