In just a few weeks, Gotham will return from its six-week hiatus with "Beasts of Prey", the first of Season 1's final four episodes, airing Monday, April 13 on Fox. The network has released a new trailer, which gives us our first look at Milo Ventimiglia's Jason Lennon, a.k.a. Ogre, who is seen getting close with Jim Gordon's (Ben McKenzie) ex Barbara (Erin Richards). We also see what could be the first step into villainy for Edward Nygma (Cory Michael Smith), while Gordon confronts The Penguin (Robin Taylor).
When we first reported on Milo Ventimiglia's casting in February, we reported that his character Ogre is not the same as the DC Comics character of the same name. Gotham's Ogre is a serial killer who has been preying on young women for more than a decade, putting each of them through a series of tests to determine »
In life there are several things that are guaranteed: death, taxes and Stan Lee cameos in Marvel movies.
Over the weekend at Emerald City Comic-Con, the comic book and Marvel legend was asked by an audience member about which of his cameos has been his favourite – and he teases the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron.
“My favourite is one I can’t tell you about, but I’ll give you a hint — don’t miss the new Avengers movie,” he told the audience.
“Almost every day, I get invited to do a cameo in some movie or another that has nothing to do with Marvel,” he added. “They just call me up, ‘hey, we’re doing a movie. Do you want to do a cameo?’ It’s kind of funny — I’ve become known as a cameo specialist.”

Here's the press release:
"Heroes Reborn" to Debut in Fall 2015
Universal City, Calif. - March 27, 2015 - Masi Oka (NBC's "Heroes," "Hawaii Five-0") will reprise his Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated role as Hiro Nakamura for a guest-starring arc of episodes on NBC's new event series "Heroes Reborn," which will premiere in Fall 2015.
While many await the return of Heroes with a healthy combination of scepticism and optimism, NBC are quietly putting the cast together for their rebooted superhero property.
The mid-noughties phenomenon took television by storm after it’s debut in 2006, going on to sweep up numerous awards and critical acclaim in the process. However, the show’s sharp decline in quality and enthusiam quickly lead to a definitive cancellation, with the series (unfortunately) lacking a narrative conclusion.
However, the recent rise in superhero and comic book popularity (thanks largely to Marvel Studios), has made 2015 the perfect time for NBC to revive their former cash-cow. While the unfortunate fate of the original Heroes has undoubtedly made former cast members wary of a return appearence, we will still be seeing some fan-favourite character’s make a special return.

Exactly two weeks from today, Netflix will debut all 13 episodes of Marvel's Daredevil. While Marvel fans wait for Season 1 to stream in all it's glory, the studio has released a brief promo, which unfortunately doesn't contain any new footage. However, we do get a new snippet of dialogue, where Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock says, "We're gonna make a difference. I know sometimes it doesn't feel like it sometimes... but we are." Who could Matt Murdock be talking to? His law partner Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson)? Karen Page (Deborah Ann Woll)? We'll have to wait until April 10 to find out for sure.
Marvel's Daredevil follows the journey of Matt Murdock, who was blinded as a young boy but imbued with extraordinary senses, now fighting against injustice by day as a lawyer, and by night as the super hero Daredevil in modern day Hell's Kitchen, New York City. The supporting cast »
The Av Club reports that Masi Oka will reprise his fan-favourite role of Hiro Nakamura for this year's Heroes: Reborn. The time-travelling, teleporting geek Hiro played a key role throughout all four seasons of Heroes' original run from 2006 to 2010, so it's only fitting that he should return for the show's upcoming 13-episode limited-run series revival.
The dynamic between Hiro and his (mostly non-superpowered) best friend Ando Masahashi (James Kyson Lee) was hilarious, lending the show a much-needed humorous side to balance out the gripping arc-based storytelling drama. Not only that, but their friendship also provided some added emotional resonance. So hopefully James Kyson Lee will also return to complete the double act.
Hiro's relationships with some of the other characters also made for some brilliant storylines. For instance, there's his awkward, doomed romance with the adorable waitress Charlene 'Charlie' Andrews (Jayma Mays), continued in the amazing spin-off novel »
