Morning SpoilersIf there’s news about upcoming movies and television you’re not supposed to know, you’ll find it in here.

Fans have been spying on the Doctor Who filming, and gotten a glimpse at a villain that nobody knew was returning... until now. We also have a couple of clips from next week's Lost, which give away a plot twist that you probably did see coming. Plus there are intriguing new details about X-Files 2, Star Wars: Clone Wars and Speed Racer. Set your time-distort to maximum, because we're bringing the future to you.

  • In X-Files 2, Billy Connolly plays a good priest, Father Joe, and Adam Godley plays Father Ybarra, a bad priest, according to a recent call sheet. Meanwhile, Mulder is very interested in one of the patients Scully is treating at the local hospital. Also, that kiss between Mulder and Scully? Was staged to confuse the fans. [XFilesNews]
  • The villain in Speed Racer puts a $1 million bounty on Speed's head for any racer who can take him out. At one point, Racer X punches another driver in the face while both their are cars are spinning in mid-air. [IESB]
  • In the Star Wars: Clone Wars animated movie/pilot, Anakin and his apprentice Ahsoka lead a platoon of clonetroopers to assault a mountain fortress, with vehicles that climb the sheer rock face while the Jedi follow on ropes. And Count Dooku sends assassin Asajj Ventress to try and win the favor of Jabba the Hutt's son. [IESB again]
  • A fan got to watch some of the location filming for the tail end of Doctor Who season four, featuring new companion Donna's parents. One fan thought he heard them mention Daleks. In this video snippet, though, they say something about the "filthy swine" aliens being gone, and Donna's father warns her mother that "they always want the women." And then Donna's mom looks up at the skies. [Thanks Tim!]
  • And look here for a video showing every single pic of Billie Piper from the new season, including a bunch at a police barricade. And some very silly faces. [Next VDO]
  • And here's another fan's set pic, which seems to indicate the Judoon (those stompy aliens who transported a hospital to the moon last year) will be back. (But it's also possible they've already started filming 2009's three one-hour specials.)[StuffonTV]A Surprise Villain Gets Involved In Star Wars: Clone Wars
  • Here are a couple of preview clips of next week's Lost. We were right about who Ben's spy on the freighter was, and here he is now! [SpoilersLost]
