Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Five actresses are reportedly vying for the lead female role in the Captain America sequel, which is widely assumed to be that of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter, who would be some form of relative of Hayley Atwell's Peggy Carter (which relative, in particular tends to vary). The five candidates are Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay, I Am Number Four's Teresa Palmer, Fright Night's Imogen Poots, and Community's Alison Brie. That last one is a particularly intriguing choice — beyond its potential to break the internet with celebratory GIFs — because Brie worked on Community with Joe and Anthony Russo, who directed episodes of the show before getting the directing gig for the Captain America sequel. There's no word on which of any of these has the inside track on the role. Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson is reportedly going to make an appearance in the film as Black Widow. [Deadline]

Iron Man 3

Cloud Atlas

Here's a Q&A session with the Wachowskis after their new movie screened at FantasticFest.

The Zero Theorem

Brazil and 12 Monkeys director Terry Gilliam is returning to science fiction with this movie, which has the following official description: "An eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst works on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the purpose of existence-or the lack thereof-once and for all." Inglourious Basterds's Christoph Waltz is playing said computer genius, and now War Horse's David Thewlis and Michael Clayton's Tilda Swinton are reportedly joining the movie. [The Playlist]

Here's the first photo of Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe sporting horns in The Hills Have Eyes director Alexander Aja's adaptation of the Joe Hill novel about a man who starts growing horns after the mysterious murder of his girlfriend. No matter how many times I type a variation of that sentence, it never gets less insane. Anyway, here's what Radcliffe has to say about the part:

"[It's] deeply emotional and also incredibly outrageous in some ways. To play somebody who, in the midst of a time in his life of great turmoil anyway, undergoes this horrific transformation into a devil character - it was very, very exciting."

Warehouse 13

Creator and showrunner Jack Kenny discusses what's ahead in the second half of season four, which will air next year:

Well, we'll be introducing a couple of recurring characters in the next 10 episodes and then another big bad at the end of that.

So is this the end of Brent Spiner's Brother Adrian?
It is the end of him for now. I don't know when Brent could come back - I would love to have him any time - and he'd obviously be a different Brother Adrian than the one we met this year. But no, the big bad we're introducing next year is not Brother Adrian. I'm sure I am not allowed to say who it is, but I think he will be just as exciting to fans as Brent was.


He also discusses whether Leena could come back from the dead, much like Steve Jinks did:

We needed to lose someone who meant something. It couldn't be a guest star, it had to be somebody who meant something to our team.

So she is dead dead?
You know...yes. [Laughs]

Claudia had that great scene with Jinks where she explains how they've brought people back from the dead in the past. Is that not going to be the case with Leena?
We may see Leena again, but not alive. If we brought back everyone who died, death starts to mean nothing. It would be impossible to raise the stakes.

I say this as no fan of the series but as someone who's generally liked the series' movie posters — that is a very underwhelming Epic Finale Poster you've got there, Twilight Franchise.
