Batman v. Superman
It's not a huge shock that this film will feature a big scene heavy on the VFX, however Weta's Joe Letteri says at the 9:25 mark that Weta's working on a big self-contained sequence that isn't the one shown at Comic Con. [Collider]
Emily Blunt, again, mentions that anything about her in this role is just fancasting:
No one's offered me that officially, so it's … [laughs] very unofficial. I think it's fan-casting, which is always very nice. But nothing official has been offered, for sure.
Avengers: Age of Ultron
If you were still wondering who Claudia Kim (also called Kim Soo Hyun) is playing, the new group image came with an identification of her character as Dr. Cho. Now, we've heard all along that the character's role is "significant," but this name doesn't ring a bell. So either A) she's a wholly new character, not from Marvel canon B) she is a known Marvel character, and the key to her identity is in her first name OR she has another or C) she's somehow related to Amadeus Cho, the one notable Marvel character with that surname who has appeared in Avengers comics.

Hayley Atwell says that series finds Peggy "making coffee for the men and taking their lunch orders. She's feeling incredibly wasted, disrespected, and frustrated."
And thus, she chooses to help out her old friend Howard Stark, who is being framed for selling weapons to the enemy and is wanted by the SSR. Says series cocreator/executive producer Christopher Markus:
That has Peggy leading a triple life. Her friends and neighbors think she works for the telephone company, and the SSR has no idea she's working undercover for Stark to clear his name. He's not a traitor to his country, but that doesn't mean he won't end up on the wrong side of the law. He has his secrets.

Here's an extended description of episode 2.13:
Sleepy Hollow 2x13 - "Pittura Infamante" (19-Jan-2015)
As Ichabod and Katrina continue to try and reconcile their fractured relationship, they attend a gathering at the Sleepy Hollow Historical Society, unaware that some new diabolical force – currently residing within a colonial-era painting – is also in attendance and has already begun to make its presence felt. The unknown evil force's existence is made palpable by the untimely discovery of its first victim, the Historical Society's art restorer, who has met a gruesome and seemingly ritualistic end. While Sheriff Reyes begins her investigation, Katrina – who has been experiencing a series of flashbacks brought on by her proximity to the familiar historical artifacts – begins to realize the true nature of the killer, and she and Ichabod embark on an investigation of their own. Husband and wife make the startling discovery that the murder may be the work of a colonial-era serial killer who had been imprisoned within the hexed painting, but soon realize the recent killing may in fact be the precursor to a far more deadly plan.
At the police precinct, officers are surprised by the sudden reappearance of fugitive and confessed cop-killer Frank Irving, but none are more shocked than Abbie, who believed her friend and former Captain to be dead, a victim of their recent battle with the demon Moloch and his minions. Abbie shares the news of Irving's return with Crane, but the pair worries his return might have been facilitated by the dark arts, and question if his soul is still his to control. As Abbie tries to suss out the truth, she reveals the turn of events to Jenny, and the Mills sisters prepare for the worst-case scenario.
