Batman v Superman
Ben Affleck briefly discusses the scene where Bruce Wayne and Diana Prince meet as shown in the recently released stills:
I love the fact that there was this Thomas Crowne Affair, Bond-y sexy scene that they wrote about two people who are pretending to be two different people who each know the secrets of the other person.
JK Simmons discusses the possibility of returning in future Terminator movies:
Yes, we are told O’Brien does [survive]… in fact, we went back and did a little added shot on the roof of the whole helicopter sequence to make sure that we see that after Arnold throws me away so that he can save people, I’m one of those that he saves, and I’m still alive and watching whats happening.
I am signed on, so if there are sequels I will by God be there.
Brian Singer has posted a new set picture to Instagram, teasing the arrival of Apocalypse on set.
Corey Stoll discusses Yellowjacket’s motivation:
Through the different drafts of the scripts and playing with motivations, I think we really came to the realizations that Darren is after the glory of the scientific discovery and the money and the fame and the power. But in the end, it really comes down to the sort of small little boy inside that just wants his father’s approval, and that’s so much easier to play than desire for world domination. I can relate to that more.

Discussing the image, Peter Capaldi says that it comes just before the Doctor has to make a climatic decision that impacts the entire season. He also discusses how his Doctor will change in season 9:
He’s throwing himself into life with a newfound hunger for adventure. He’s in pursuit of joy and grabbing every thrill that he can along the way. But I sense him running from something, that even he does not yet understand.

Speaking to TV Guide, Marc Guggenheim has teased that season 4 will adopt a lighter tone, “reconstituting” the show. He also teases that Oliver will get an upgraded costume. [Spoiler TV]
Candace Accola talks about the new season:
I feel like six seasons is a nice, long slow-burn, so I’m excited to see these characters together. Usually, it’s so immediate, especially on our series ... but in real life, it’s the person you can be yourself in front of in the most dorky way. Both of these characters have seen the worst in each other and they still like each other and I think that’s really cool and that’s really special.
Here’s the press release for the final episode of the season (and ultimately, the series):
