Captain America: Civil War
A rumor is circulating that at some point Steven Rogers will lift Thor’s hammer, according to a set report from Atlanta filming depicting Cap raising a hammer prop into the air. It’s a shaky rumor, since Thor in one of the few heroes that has not been confirmed for the film. But Cinemablend speculates that the Mjolnir that he lifts could be the hammer belong to the faux-Thor Ragnarok — who’s a clone, created by Tony Stark to battle the anti-registration superheroes, in the Civil War comics. As ever with rumors like this however, take it with a pinch of salt.
Michael Keaton will produce and star in the adaptation of the Brian Joines/Bachan comic book about imaginary friends that actually work for a secret agency that monitors the activity of imaginary beings. [THR]

Executive producer Rob Thomas discusses the second season featuring more Ravi:
We love Ravi too. We wish we could have gotten to see more of Ravi and Peyton this season. The plan was to see more of that, but then the other stories expanded and pushed some of that out. One lesson we learned in season one is that the show is better when Ravi is in more of it. Something you’ll see us doing is trying to find excuses for Ravi to get out of the morgue more. We had fun when we got him to help Liv investigate Clive, so he’s not just going back and forth with her about the bodies in the morgue.

Bryan Fuller teases what might have been in a fourth season of the now-cancelled show:
My idea for Season 4 was perhaps one of the coolest yet. So I would love to do it in some capacity... It would have explored the Hannibal-Will Graham relationship in a much deeper fashion than the series ever has before.
But, some respite for fans—Deadline is reporting that there has been a lot of interest from other networks to pick up the show, meaning the show could find new life beyond NBC.
Graeme Manson briefly teases that some ramifications may come back to haunt Alison and Donnie:
The Hendrixes are still bonded, but there’s a few things that happened at the end of the season that could have some impact going forward.
E Online are reporting the show is looking to cast a character called Patty, a Mayoral candidate in Starling City that was an old friend of Moira Queen with ties to both Oliver and Thea.
Person Of Interest
Here’s a first synopses for the fifth (and potentially final) season:
PERSON OF INTEREST is a crime thriller about an ex-CIA agent and a mysterious high-tech billionaire who prevent violent crimes with the help of an all-seeing artificial intelligence, known to them as “The Machine.” John Reese (Jim Caviezel) and Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) have saved countless lives thanks to the omniscience of their supercomputer and their crack team of brave misfits — NYPD detective Lionel Fusco (Kevin Chapman), the unpredictable cyber-hacker Root (Amy Acker) and missing-in-action operative Sameen Shaw (Sarah Shahi) — but a new threat puts their mission in jeopardy and their lives in even more danger. For years, they’ve been protected by The Machine, but as worlds collided and a rival AI known as Samaritan finally cornered The Machine inside the nation’s power grid, it was the POI team’s turn to protect Finch’s creation. In season five, the cold war is over. The world around us might look the same, but something has drastically changed. Samaritan’s lethal “correction” has initiated its control. Finch’s Machine is essentially dead. Shaw is still missing. And the team is once again hiding in plain sight. But with Samaritan’s invisible grip tightening everywhere, will Finch be able to rebuild and resurrect The Machine? And if he does, will it be the same Machine when it comes back online?
