Although if I were a betting man, I’d be willing to guess that Steppenwolf won’t look like a blocky, Bionicle-esque monstrosity in the final movie, but this is still technically our first look at the villain either way.
James Bond 25
According to Indie Wire, Paul McGuigan is the latest name to be considered to direct the film.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword
If you want to watch like, roughly 10 minutes of the movie broken down into out-of-context clip form, then do we have the selection of videos for you!
We’re so proud of Teri Hatcher, and so amazed she’s on our show and killing it as Rhea. There is a feature film quality finale, with huge guest stars, stunts and visual effects. We will get a glimpse of the Season 3 villain in the finale, which we’re also excited about.
Killer Frost’s arc may extend into season four, according to producer Andrew Kreisberg in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Obviously Danielle Panabaker is not going anywhere. How and if she becomes Caitlin Snow again, or she remains Killer Frost or a version of Killer Frost, into season 4, you’re going to have to tune in.
Panabaker also weighed in on the finale.
It’s going to be great. Obviously I am involved a little bit more in the finale this time than I have been in years past. From a totally biased perspective, it’s great to see a lot more of the familiar faces. Last year, it was Barry vs. Zoom, and obviously this year there’s a lot more speedsters, there’s a lot more powers, so invariably, I think you’re going to get to see a bigger, better battle.
The Black Lightning series is currently looking at a 2018 mid-season premiere, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A shocking alliance forms in the synopsis for 4×09, “Queen Death”.
When The Hollow sends a terrifying message to Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood), he must team with Haley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Freya (Riley Voelkel) to embark on a desperate mission to stop the Hollow once and for all – even if it requires a heartbreaking sacrifice. Refusing to allow anyone in his family to pay the high price of defeating their enemy, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) makes a surprising alliance and enacts a plan that threatens to change the Mikaelson family forever.
Agents of SHIELD
Finally, Ghost Rider returns in the synopsis for Agents of SHIELD‘s season finale, “World’s End”.
With the surprising emergence of Ghost Rider, Coulson and the team attempt to stop Aida from ending the world on the exciting season finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
According to Creators.co, Eddie’s Diner has one again been booked for filming by the BBC, suggesting Clara may return in this year’s Christmas episode. Bear in mind the series has used the diner before (in the opening episodes of season six, specifically), so it might not necessarily indicate a brief return for Clara — however, it would make sense considering it’s Peter Capaldi’s swansong episode.
We also have a ton of new photos from this week’s episode, “Knock, Knock”. There are many, many more at the link. [Doctor Who News]
Once Upon a Time
Finally, here’s a new clip from the show’s upcoming musical episode, featuring Hook singing about his need for revenge.
