New Agent Carter pictures tease the show’s new villain. Zack Snyder talks Batman v Superman spoilers. An Arrow character is heading to The Flash. Mark Millar’s Superior adaptation gets its writers. Plus, what’s to come on The X-Files, and The 100, and new Legends of Tomorrow clips. Behold, Spoilers!
Batman v Superman
Zack Snyder discusses the myriad spoilerrific reports floating around about the film, and claims that the trailers don’t show as much of the film as people believe they do:
I have the benefit of seeing the movie. It’s cool that they think it’s too much and I appreciate people not wanting to know, but there’s plenty that they don’t know. There’s a lot of movie that’s not in the trailer.
Of course I hate it when any spoilers come out! You design the movie as a story that evolves as you watch it, so moment-to-moment [you’re thinking], ‘Oh my god, what’s going to happen next? Are they gonna live? Are they gonna die?’ So you want that experience for the audience, as much as you can. If you’re, as an audience member, exploring these articles, looking for answers to questions that you have, maybe you’re okay with knowing before you go. It’s like an individual taste. But like I said, I want people to see the movie without knowing.

Kevin Feige says that one of the mystical environments Strange will visit is indeed the classic Dark Dimension from the comics:
We see glimpses of something called the Dark Dimension. If you were to open a ‘Doctor Strange’ comic drawn by Steve Ditko, you would see the Dark Dimension is, in fact, very colorful in an extremely psychedelic way. Those are the things we’re not shying away from.

The Conjuring 2
Here’s a new teaser trailer for the horror sequel.
Game of Thrones
Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, Natalie Dormer says that despite the recent announcement that the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series will not be released before the launch of Game of Thrones season 6, the two versions of the story are still heading towards the same main points:
I think [series creators] David [Benioff] and Dan [Weiss] have got it covered. I mean, it’s fresh, clean snow for all of us...
[David and Dan] sat down and had a big pow wow with George a couple years ago in case of this eventuality. You know, George is a producer on the show so... Maybe A to B, they go off on slightly different tangents, but B is still B.... I think they’re all on the same page-ish.
Producer Andrew Kreisberg has confirmed that David Ramsey will indeed cross over onto the show as his Arrow character Diggle, to help The Flash deal with the escaped King Shark:
The Diggles arrive in Central City to help Barry take on King Shark who has escaped from ARGUS and is hellbent on completing his mission of destroying The Flash.
Enrico Colantoni will join the cast as Detective Lou Benedetto, a recurring character who is tracking a case that coincides with a case Liv is on. [THR]
The series has a premiere date: March 7th. [Spoiler TV]
Here’s an episode synopsis for the show’s season 3 premiere, “Wanheda, Part One”:
Three months have passed since the tragedy at Mount Weather and our heroes learn that a bounty has been put on Clarke’s (Eliza Taylor) head. Unbeknownst to Clarke, a team led by Bellamy (Bob Morley) and Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) journeys deep into Grounder territory to save her. Meanwhile, Murphy (Richard Harmon) finds his way to the mansion and discovers a very different Jaha (Isaiah Washington) on a very different mission.
And now, a synopsis for the second episode of the show’s revival, “Founder’s Mutation”:
When a scientist suddenly commits suicide, Mulder and Scully investigate what unseen force may have driven him to it.
