Having been absent from Marvel’s slate of Phase Two movies, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye is set to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in May alongside the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and the actor has taken a moment to discuss his role in the hotly-anticipated sequel during an interview with Starplus (via Cbm)…
“It was fun to finally kind of discover who Clint Barton is a little bit. We have some good secrets revealed. I think everything that was great about the first Avengers, is exponentially expressed in this one. From the action, to the making fun of itself, and there’s a lot more time spent with the Avengers together, after being so separated in the first one. We’ve got some great new goodies, and some good baddies.”
There’s also been talk that Hawkeye could reunite with Chris Evans »

With the recent release of Hannibal Season 2 to Blu-ray and DVD, I had the opportunity to catch up with Bryan Fuller to get his thoughts on an excellent second season and find out what he’s planning for Season 3:
Looking back at Hannibal’s second season, are you happy with how it turned out?
Bryan Fuller: With Season 2, I was really happy with how it grew organically. When you’re in the middle of it, you’re not sure if you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing. It’s great because that terror bubble keeps you on your toes, but I feel really good about Season 2.
Season 2 saw a push away from the weekly killer format of the first season. Was that intentional or something that also grew organically?
Bryan Fuller: It was a wiggling out of the crime procedural restrictions. I wanted to »

Having been absent from Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye will soon make his return to the McU as he links up with the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for May’s hotly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Speaking to MTV, Renner has revealed that he has no burning desire for a solo movie as Hawkeye, and appears to confirm that we will be seeing the archer again in 2016 as part of Captain America 3.
“I’m happy to do the ensemble”, says Renner. “I’m not scratching or clawing for a solo mvoie by any means. I think [Hawkeye] is a utility guy that can bounce around into other people’s universes a little bit, especially like Cap 3.”

After a solid year in development, Syfy has ordered an initial 13-episode run of Gale Anne Hurd’s sci-fi show, Hunters.
The series is based on Alien Hunter, the best-selling novel by Whitney Strieber, and “follows a Pennsylvania detective-turned-suspect Flynn Carroll who, after his wife mysteriously goes missing, is determined to prove his innocence and find her. His search leads to evidence that dangerous alien cells are living among us, and the U.S. government has a secret organization in place to thwart their terrorist efforts.”
The first season will be produced by Hurd’s own Valhalla Entertainment outfit, under a contract with Universal Cable Productions. She’s on board to executive produce alongside Heroes and V scribe, Natalie Chaidez, who’s also scripting the series.
