Spoiler warning! This morning's trove of spoilers is very picture-heavy, for some reason. New pictures show the biggest battle in Iron Man, a uniform from Star Trek, a big fight on Lost, a Decepticon from Transformers 2, and the identity of the person who dies on Smallville. We also have some new hints about Battlestar Galactica, including photos that show what happens to Starbuck. And there's a new Doctor Who trailer, plus some details about season four — and some completely crazy rumors for 2009. This is your last spoiler warning — so spoon up, spoiler junkies!
Here a few new images of Iron Man's enemy Iron Monger (Jeff Bridges) and his huge battle against Iron Man, which we meant to include on Friday but somehow forgot. [Yahoo Movies]
Barricade, the Decepticon who's all about "enslave and protect," will apparently be heavily featured in the second Transformers movie — and there may be two of him. At least, two idential Barricade-marked Saleen Mustangs were spotted on a trailer in Culver City. Supposedly, the script for Transformers 2 isn't done yet — but that probably won't stop Michael Bay from filming it anyway. But why would there be two Barricades? Does he get duplicated? [Jalopnik]
Here are more of those Star Trek set pics, which include more glimpses of that shuttlecraft (which has seatbelts!) and the gray cadet uniform jacket we've seen glimpses of before. [TrekWeb]
Lucy Lawless swore not to drop any Battlestar Galactica spoilers during an interview... and then promptly mentioned that her character, D'Anna, isn't in the second half of the season, now filming. So it sounds as though her Cylon gets disposed of once and for all in the first 10 episodes. [Huffington Post]
And hey, here are some promo pics for the second episode of the season, where it looks like Starbuck's in a spot of bother. [Spoilerscoop]
The Doctor Who Christmas special is already written, and it takes place in the Victorian era, with "plum pudding, death and disaster." And now the show is only slated to have two specials in 2009, not three or four as we've previously been told. And Lady Edison, the lady of the house in this season's Agatha Christie episode, has "secrets to keep." Also, producer Russell T. Davies says returning companion Donna Noble is "a little bit older than the Doctor" — but I think he meant the actors' ages, not the characters'. Or did he? [Daily Telegraph]
And hey! Here's the older-than-she-looks Donna now, in another new trailer for season four. Did you know the Doctor was a legend? He is, apparently.Also, David Tennant is "informally committed" to play the Doctor in season five, which airs in 2010. [The Independent]
Meanwhile, here's a completely dodgy rumor: Season four ends with the Doctor splitting into two people (which is why some filming pics showed the Doctor on that beach where he said goodbye to Rose, wearing two different suits.) And one Doctor goes back to the alternate universe (the one with all the zeppelins) with Rose, to save it from something or other. The other Doctor stays in our universe — and then has a botched regeneration, where he swaps bodies with the Master. So David Tennant will play the Master and John Simm will play the Doctor next year, and Absolutely Fabulous comedian Jennifer Saunders will have an important role.[Doctor Who Forum]
The Lost season finale features "one of the most spectacular kisses you've ever seen," promises producer Damon Lindelof. [Spoilers Lost]
Some Lost shooting pics have surfaced that show the Santa Rosa Mental Institute, and beardless Jack visiting Hurley, apparently from episode 10 of the show's fourth season. And Jack's dad, Christian, may not actually be dead, since actor John Terry (who plays him) turned up during the filming of some flash-forward scenes set at the St. Sebastian Neurology Clinic. Also on set: Sam Anderson... but apparently he was just visiting with his wife and kids.
Plus, in case you missed it, the first episode after the break is about Locke's camp coming under attack, while Jack tries to identify a mysterious body that washes ashore. Here are some promo pics. [Doc Arzt's Lost Blog]
Who dies in the April 17 episode of Smallville? Well, these photos give a bit of a clue. Whoever it is, both Clark and Lex show up at the sparsely attended funeral. And it looks like the cemetary is in Metropolis. So all signs point to Lionel. And supposedly this is the event that turns Lex bad to the bone. [The TV Addict]
Oh, and this trailer that shows Lex pushing his dad out a window might also be a clue. Duh.
