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

The latest plot rumors for the Avengers have Earth's Mightiest Heroes fighting at least three distinct villains. Aaron Eckhart won't quite deny a surprise Harvey Dent cameo. Plus The Hunger Games is this close to finding its star!


Spoilers from here on out!

Aaron Eckhart apparently has little interest in completely shutting down the Two-Face rumors. When asked if Harvey Dent might reappear in "in a flashback or someone's imagination", he smiled and responded, "I could not possibly say." At this point, he's probably just winding people up, but hey... he's not ruling it out. [CBS News]


The Avengers

What appears to be a new extras call sheet has surfaced, and it includes yet another surprisingly detailed plot summary. Here it is:

A superhero team called "The Avengers" do battle against two separate alien extraterrestrial humanoid life forms. The Avengers are a superhero team, consisting of a group of Marvel Comics heroes aka "Earth's Mightiest Heroes". The aliens that The Avengers will fight are called "The Kree" and "Skrulls". These two extraterrestrial races become embroiled in a war for ages that ultimately makes its way to Earth, and the Avengers unite to intervene with all their power and might combined.

The cast listing includes Tom Hiddleston as Loki (and Don Cheadle as War Machine, for what that's worth), although interestingly it doesn't list Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill. Anyway, as always, we're highly dubious about this, particularly the idea that the Avengers would feature not one, not two, but three distinct threats. We'd suggest waiting until we hear something, anything official before jumping to conclusions about who will be the villains in this movie. [ScreenRant]

Executive producer Chris Fedak offers some insight into the episode:

"We definitely wanted to see some of the GRETA characters we established earlier in the season and see what happened to them next and explain what the government was up to and why there were GRETAs inside the Buy More. Once we got the order for more episodes, after the initial 13, we were like ‘Oh, we gotta get in there and explain what the GRETA project was.' And so it was kinda neat to take those characters, who we'd only had a little bit of time with in episode 2 and episode 3 [of the season], and say, ‘Well, let's explore them; let's meet them a little bit better.' Casey is very much tied into what's happening with the GRETA project at this moment. He might very well be in charge of this project. So there's tension within the team. There's a rift growing. The question, and essentially where the A-Team title comes from - is: Who is the A Team? Is it Chuck and Sarah or is it Casey and his new team? That's definitely at the heart of this episode."



Episode 22 will reportedly be called "Chuck vs. Agent X." [SpoilerTV]

Here's some photos for episode 10, "Dog Eat Dog." [Daemon's TV]


Elizabeth Mitchell teases all the carnage coming up in the finale:

"I think that the people who die are going to affect everyone in different ways. The people they chose, they chose for a reason because they will mean something. I think it's going to create an entirely new dynamic for everybody. Nobody is going to be unscathed. There will be some interesting betrayals, which I always enjoy, and there will be tears and hopefully some fun. We're all very active in this and everyone has an important part. I'd love to say the fans will be satiated because I'm a fan and I know how wonderful it is to feel like, ‘Oh, thank God.' But you're going to want to see the rest."
