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

This morning's spoilers include a bunch of new and somewhat cryptic details about AMC's remake of the British spy-village show The Prisoner, starring Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen. Also, Jim Gordon actor Gary Oldman spilled a ton of new Dark Knight spoilers, and there are a few new bits of info about The Spirit, Transformers 2, Star Wars: Clone Wars and Watchmen. We find out exactly when "all will be revealed" in Battlestar Galactica, and glean some new info on Smallville, Eureka, Lost, Fringe and Dr. Horrible. Also, a zingy new one-minute Heroes promo. Embrace the spoilers!


The Spirit:

Sand Saref is the "first love of the Spirit's life" who turned to crime, and the Spirit has to bring her down. [IGN]


The Dark Knight:

Honest cop Jim Gordon gets to drive the awesome SWAT car. And at one point, he gives a crime scene to Batman over his own cops and detectives, letting Batman have it to himself for five minutes. At the end of the movie, Batman agrees to "take the fall" for a bunch of deaths, says actor Gary Oldman. (This seems to confirm a spoiler we reported ages ago that Batman takes the blame for Two-Face's killings.) And if there's a third Batman movie, Gordon will have to be hunting Batman publicly, but meeting with him privately. [CHUD]

There's a scene where Batman wants to spy on millions of Gotham City residents by wiretapping their phones. Lucius Fox is horrified by this notion, calling it "too much power for one person." [Delaware Online]


Meanwhile, the HBO "First Look" special has turned up on YouTube:

Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen:

Matthew Marsden plahs Graham, a British Special Forces officer who's attached to Lennox's team and fights the Decepticons at that Chinese factory (the Pennsylvania steel plant where they were shooting.) And he doesn't die in the movie. [IESB]



Prison scenes in the Watchmen movie include Nite Owl and Silk Spectre II taking on a phalanx of prisoners to bust Rorschach out of prison. But also a convict's arms being sawn off through the bars of Rorschach's cell. Also, the Owl Ship has guns that can fire 2,500 rounds per minute, and swiveling VTOL engines that allow a smooth take-off and landing. [IGN]


Star Wars: Clone Wars:

The Clone Wars animated movie and TV show won't just deal with Anakin Skywalker and his student Ahsoka, because we know what happens to Anakin and we can guess that something will happen to Ahsoka before Revenge Of The Sith. Rather, it follows a bunch of other minor characters. (And Jar Jar Binks may show up.) We'll learn how Yoda became such a bad-ass and what the attack droids and clones were like before they became naughty. [Sci Fi Wire]


Battlestar Galactica:

You'll find out the identity of the final Cylon sooner rather than later when Battlestar Galactica finally returns. [SyFyPortal]


The Prisoner:

In AMC's remake of the 1960s show The Prisoner, the imprisoned spy Number 6 "finds his way back," and we learn what the village is, says actor Hayley Atwell. She plays the "love interest" in the program, a woman who works for a very important corporation. She's not what she seems. She turns up in the Village blind, with a number. Asked whether her character stays blind the whole time, Hayley answered cryptically: "She's in a parallel world, and it's actually a different part of her." Also, the new show will be about post 9/11 security concerns, the same way the original was about the Cold War. [MTV Movies]


Dr. Horrible's Singalong Blog:

Just a reminder that Joss Whedon's Dr. Horrible launches online today! The titular villain vlogs, bungles experiments and studies with a voice coach to perfect his evil cackle. [Wired]



The mad scientist in J.J. Abrams' mad-science show Fringe, Walter Noble, used to work out of a major university and was part of a U.S. Army experimental project called Kelvin Genetics. And then he was institutionalized for nearly 20 years. [Zap2It]



In spite of Lance Reddick showing up on Fringe as a regular character (FBI boss Broyles), he'll still have time to show up on the island as Matthew Abaddon next year. [E! Online]



Here's another new Heroes trailer that shows more of the "Villains" plotline, plus a glimpse at Future Claire in all her messed-up glory. [Heroes Spoilers]


As we mentioned, the Justice League will rescue Clark at the start of Smallville season eight, led by Green Arrow. Also, Jimmy will propose to Chloe, and she'll accept. New LuthorCorp CEO Tess will have an assistant, named Kat. Clark will work with a man named Nicolai on a boat in the Arctic, and there'll also be a scientist, guard and researcher in the Arctic at the start of the season. [Superhero Profiles]


Also, this season we'll glimpse how Green Arrow's early rough times are coming back to haunt him. And he'll team up with Clark more than in previous seasons. Clark isn't leaving his hometown for good. [Newsarama]


A main character on Eureka dies this season. Also, the first episode is about a "rogue robot" that's causing trouble. [Spoiler TV]
