Yesterday we brought you some comments from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showrunners Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon, stating that we can expect to see plenty of big name guest stars from the Marvel Universe as the show progresses (that's assuming it's going to be picked up for a second season, which is reportedly very likely).

Troubled star of hit TV show Glee not remembered at Academy Awards ceremony
• Xan Brooks liveblogs the ceremony
• Full list of winners as they're announced
The Oscars have failed to pay tribute to Cory Monteith, the young Canadian actor whose death at the age of 31 last year shocked both the film and TV industries. The actor was not afforded any airtime in its traditional In Memoriam section.
The Calgary-born actor had a troubled adolescence, but began to find success as an actor after winning small roles in films such as Final Destination 3 and TV shows such as Smallville. His career, however, was transformed after he was cast as Finn in Glee, and the show became a massive hit. Monteith then began to make further headway in feature films, with his final role, alongside David Morse in the crime drama McCanick, premiered at the Toronto film festival in 2013.

(Cbr) In the month since Jesse Eisenberg was announced as Lex Luthor in Warner Bros. and Zack Snyder’s sequel to "Man of Steel", the "Social Network" star has faced his fair share of detractors. However, he also has some surprising sources of support — namely, two actors who previously played Superman’s arch-nemesis. Ex-Lex Kevin Spacey, who played the character in Bryan Singer’s "Superman Returns", tells Empire that Eisenberg is “a remarkable actor. He’s just going to fucking own it. I think it’s a great idea and I wish him the best with it.” "Smallville" veteran Michael Rosenbaum, meanwhile, says Eisenberg doesn’t “need any advice from me, he’ll do his homework.” “Jesse’s a good actor. He’ll do it his own way and that’s the best way,” he said. “If you can do it your way, if you succeed or fail, you succeed because you are being original. »

Congratulations to Laura Vandervoort -- she's engaged!
The "Bitten" and "Smallville" actress, 29, is set to marry her boyfriend Oliver Trevena, and she happily shared the good news by showing off her diamond engagement ring on Tuesday (Feb. 25) at the Vanity Fair Young Hollywood party in L.A.
According to source close to the couple, Trevena got down one knee to ask her to marry him on Dec. 31 while on vacation.
"The couple was visiting a castle in England and it was a really romantic setting," the source tells Us Weekly. "Oliver told Laura to close her eyes at 11:11 a.m., an important number and time for her, and when she opened her eyes he was down on one knee. She was totally surprised, and he gave her a vintage diamond ring. She's over the moon and so happy."

After making his debut on Arrow last year, Grant Gustin will suit up as The Flash in an upcoming pilot from The CW. The actor first appeared as Barry Allen in a two-parter which saw him gain his powers at the conclusion of that story, and it was recently revealed that plans to use an upcoming episode of Arrow as a backdoor pilot for the character had been scrapped in preference of The Flash getting his own solo debut outing.
While those working on the series promised that the iconic DC superhero would appear in his classic superhero costume, many fans were sceptical, especially after waiting a decade for Clark Kent to don his tights in Smallville (even Arrow’s Oliver Queen only recently donned his domino mask for the first time).
Well, as you can see below, they really weren’t lying! Ahead of the pilot episode which is »

To call the casting for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Man of Steel sequel (unofficially titled Batman vs. Superman) controversial would be a monumental understatement. First, the studio shocked (and enraged) audiences by announcing that Ben Affleck would be donning the Batsuit this time around. Then, they chose Fast and the Furious alum Gal Gadot for the part of Wonder Woman. It wasn’t long before the actress fell victim to a slew of internet hate, which has now turned its focus towards Jesse Eisenberg due to his casting as Lex Luthor. Though The Social Network actor (along with Affleck and Gadot) may prove to be an inspired choice, for now, the majority of fans are on the fence.
