Mr. Freeze has a whole new look. Olivia Munn pitches a Psylocke solo movie. Hear the Punisher talk in a new Daredevil teaser. Could Felicity get a supersuit on Arrow? Plus, Vin Diesel on xXx 3, a Rogue One actress teases an explosive scene, and new pictures from Agent Carter, iZombie, and Colony. To me, my Spoilers!
William Shatner would love, somehow, to return as the iconic James T. Kirk:
I would play an old Captain Kirk, absolutely. You would have [to have] an interesting character, not a cameo, like ‘Here I am, aren’t I interesting?’ It’s the ongoing world, it’s the world within science-fiction. Yes, you age within the universe. Time goes on, but time bends, as well. There’s so many things you could do.
Star Wars: Rogue One
Scottish model Eunice Olumide reveals to Edinburgh Evening News that she plays a minor role in the movie as some sort of Rebel leader, and briefly describes a scene from the film:
I was originally supposed to play a nomad, but since I’m athletic I ended up playing a rebellion leader.
There’s a small scene where I run and there’s a tank that comes after me with 20 stormtroopers. There’s loads of explosions.
Olivia Munn pitches a solo Psylocke movie:
I think if Psylocke had a chance to tell her story, it would be great to start with the genesis and have an understanding… I think maybe like right as she’s getting out of university and before her whole family — we jump in right before all of her family is taken out and we have an understanding of what she had to lose. Then her figuring out her powers and how powerful she is. I think that would be a great thing to, because it’s something that I always loved about her. That she came from a good family and lost everything. Yeah, I would just like to tell that story.
Vin Diesel has taken to Instagram to announce the start of filming on the movie:
Deadpool makes his Valentine’s date pitch in a new promo.
There’s a brief amount of new footage in this international trailer.
Co-writer Rhett Reese has confirmed that the film has a second post-credits sequence attached to the theatrical release (and not pre-release showings).
Gods of Egypt
Here’s the movie’s superbowl trailer, which doesn’t really have any new footage.
Several pictures from filming have hit social media, offering a look at Nathan Darrow’s Mr. Freeze—but not in the toned-down costume seen in his debut just before the show broke for the midseason, but a new supervillain outfit much more in line with his appearance in the comics (or even a little Batman and Robin-y).
Fear the Walking Dead
Dougray Scott has joined the cast for season 2. Scott will, according to TV Line, play Casey, “a decent man who believes in civility... [and] is still learning to be a leader,” who “regrets but accepts the necessary violence for a new vision.”
Rocky Horror Picture Show

Here’s a synopsis for the show’s midseason return, “Bouncing Back”:
Bouncing Back - In the aftermath of his trip to Maveth, Coulson is more determined than ever to get to Gideon Malick and put an end to Hydra once and for all. Daisy and the team encounter more Inhumans who have powers like they’ve never seen before, but will they be friends or enemies of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
