Top image: Batman v. Superman.
A few set pictures from filming reveal Will Smith’s Floyd Lawton, as well as potentially how he appears as the villain Deadshot. It was unconfirmed if this suited character was actually Deadshot, or another mercenary who isn’t Lawton, so take that part with a pinch of salt. [via CBR]
UPDATE: It has been since confirmed that the armoured figure is a costumed member of the public that was later escorted from the set.
Batman v. Superman
Here’s a purported clean version of the teaser poster released recently. It’s not been verified if it’s real or not, but it seems likely, as a color version of the picture was then posted on Facebook by JPosters.com (and removed shortly thereafter). [via CBR]
Michael Fassbender offers an update on the filming schedule for the movie:
“You say it’s a long time but what I’ve found–it’s all new to me but starting to develop scripts and work on them, they take time,” he countered to our mention of the delays in getting the movie made. “It just takes time to get a good story together and we really want to do it right. It’s exciting. It’s going to start this year, we’ll be filming in September.”
Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard will write the script for the film, which will release on October 21, 2016. [Deadline]

Agents Of SHIELD
Another week, another Entertainment Weekly interview and poster. Here’s Jeff Bell on how “Scars” will lead into the end of the season:
So is it safe to say we’re building toward Skye making a very conflicted decision about her life as an Inhuman or a S.H.I.E.L.D agent?
It sure feels like it, doesn’t it? It feels like her two worlds are really coming together, and usually that doesn’t bode well for one of them. [laughs]
Well, that’s ominous!
Well, we’re really building towards the last episodes of the season, and I think we’re really building momentum. Episode 19 ended with Coulson saying “take me to your leader” and went straight into putting the team back together at end of 20. So now we’ve kind of got S.H.I.E.L.D. and S.H.I.E.L.D. 2.0 together. I don’t want to overstate that, but we’ve got Hydra coming together, we’ve got the Inhumans coming together, and hopefully it gets tied up in a big explosive finale.
The Vampire Diaries
Kat Graham discusses the impending season finale:
“I don’t know if it’s a sad thing. Change for a lot of us, for anyone, is very difficult, but I wouldn’t say the episode is going to leave you sad,” Kat Graham tells TVGuide.com. “I think, I’m hoping, people will be excited for what’s next and our journey as a family together. I’m actually happy [because] I think there is some risk-taking in the finale. Even if one chapter closes, sometimes people don’t really deal with things and they don’t end things how they need to, and I’m excited for the fans to see that.”
