8. Deathlok & Lorelei Characters Joining ‘Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ (via Deadline)
For those complaining about the lack of supervillains in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, here's the best news you'll hear all day.
The character Mike Peterson, played by J August Richards on the series, will become the cyborg [Deathlok]. “We’ve been leaving breadcrumbs along the way,” Loeb said. “This is a major Marvel character appearing on TV, on film for the first time.”
He'll appear in the next new episode on February 4th titled "Tracks" which will also include a cameo by Stan Lee. This is big news. Should I write a whole post on this topic?
7. Stephen Amell Sets The Record Straight On That Justice League Story (via Bleeding Cool)
playing Green Arrow in a future Justice League movie. Here's Stephen's denial. He couldn't be more clear.
"Something I need to get off of my chest.
"When I do press, I try and be open, honest and thoughtful. That being said… I find it incredibly discouraging to see a headline like the ones I’ve been seeing this morning. Headlines that aren’t just a stretch, they’re totally fabricated. At no point, have I had “studio level” discussions about any feature films at Warner Bros.
"In this particular instance, when I read articles that take a pretty straightforward answer and slap a title on it that has little to no correlation to what I’ve actually said, it makes it seem as though I’m disrespecting my current position. Which is bulls**t. And why would I do that? I mean… I’m not the smartest dude in the world. (After all… I picked a career in acting.) But would I really just casually subvert a process cloaked in secrecy? A process – by the way – being run by the company who currently employs me. C’MON!
"We’re making a kick a** show. We will continue to make a kick a** show. And I will continue to interact and provide interesting content for our fans. Because I love our fans. If every once and a while, some d***weed wants to pull a headline out of thin air to generate page views, then that’s the price we pay." - Stephen Amell6.

TVAlmost Human (01x08) "You Are Here" Recommended
A self-guided bullet that can track and kill specific targets is investigated by Kennex and Dorian. Meanwhile, Maldonado takes another look at the ambush that almost killed Kennex.
A good episode that takes the plot of the Tom Selleck movie Runaway (1984) with a nice moment between Kennex and Dorian that ends with the phrase, "I like you to." What makes this episode slightly confusing is it was actually supposed to be the second episode of the season. That means there are some plot points from the pilot that were dropped. For example, Kennex goes to an anger management class, the investigation into the police ambush and Kennex' ex-wife. What happened to all that?What did you think of the episode?
Arrow (02x11) "Blind Spot" Recommended
Official Synopsis: Laurel asks the Arrow to investigate Sebastian Blood, but Oliver is unsure whether to believe her accusations against the man he supports for mayor. Meanwhile, Sebastian exposes Laurel's drug addiction and has her arrested; and Roy reveals his new super strength to Sin, who wants to test out his abilities. Back on the island, Oliver is surprised when Sarah reveals a secret about Laurel.
There are some major character changes in this episode and most involve secrets being revealed. All of them are exciting, but the most exciting is the revelation about Laurel's drug addiction. They've teased for a while that the character will undergo major changes to become "Black Canary" and we may be seeing the beginning of that. Plus, Roy punches through a brick wall! Whaaaaaaat?! No wait. it's the return of Deathstroke that's the real star.What did you think of the episode?
