Seth Rogen finally finds his ‘Preacher’ man: Dominic Cooper! — One 0n-screen comic-book universe isn't good enough for Dominic Cooper. The British actor starred as Tony Stark's playboy millionaire inventor dad Howard Stark in Captain America movies and on Agent Carter - if you haven't voted for her in our Save Our Shows campaign, get on it!

Summer movie preview: 9 that show power in numbers — There's no "I" in team - or in Hollywood this summer. Lone wolves and renegades such as James Bond have had their day, but the next few months at the cinema are filled with disparate individuals uniting for various causes, whether that's taking on evil machines, rogue nations, video-game aliens and fierce singing competitions, or tackling the responsibility of being man candy for women who like their abs six-packed.

May movie preview: Lots of 'Mad' — The summer movie season starts in earnest next month with post-apocalyptic hot rods, ghosts, demonic possession and the return of Cameron Crowe. The week-by-week highlights: MAY 1 Avengers: Age of Ultron * Stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth * Director: Joss Whedon * Plot: The world needs saving again, and Earth's mightiest heroes rally to take on a killer robot (voiced by James Spader).

Joss Whedon’s next project? Probably not ‘Wonder Woman’ or ‘Star Wars’ — Avengers: Age of Ultron is about to hit theaters - and most likely rule the summer-movie season - but one guy who's about to take it easy is director Joss Whedon. Pencils are down, test is turned in, even had a premiere.

'Star Wars' lands on digital platforms Friday — The power of the Force is about to become much more portable. On Friday, The Star Wars Digital Movie Collection arrives on digital HD platforms (iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, PlayStation Store and Verizon FiOS) and marks the first time the six films in George Lucas' two space trilogies have been released for download.

Watch Ryan Reynolds rock out in this exclusive ‘The Voices’ deleted scene — Ryan Reynolds has already shown a penchant for getting crazy in the skintight outfit of Deadpool - as poor Mario Lopez discovered this week - but he can also pull off boy-next-door weird, too, as in his dark comedy (on Blu-ray and DVD Tuesday).

An exclusive peek at the cutest little Avengers you’ve ever seen — CUTENESS ALERT! The Marvel superheroes of Avengers: Age of Ultron have to save the day against a killer robot, but their plush 10-inch-tall Bleacher Creature counterparts just have to look cuddly and lovable around the house.

‘The Flash’ picks up speed tonight with a host of Harrison Wells reveals — "Tricksters," the title of tonight's episode of The CW's The Flash, does describe the nom du crime of Mark Hamill and young Devon Graye. However, if we're looking at the big picture of the show, it's also describing Harrison Wells, the head of STAR Labs played by Tom Cavanagh.

Mark Hamill never expected to play Luke Skywalker again. Like, EVER. — This generation of youngsters with their iPhones and Apple Watches have Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian as pop-culture icons, but in a galaxy far, far away - or, at least the 1970s, '80s and '90s - Mark Hamill was it.

Review: Sex leads to nothing good in 'It Follows' — Diseases are the least of sexually active kids' worries in "It Follows". Teenage hormones give way to a terrifyingly haunting presence that just won't give up in the new horror movie written and directed by David Robert Mitchell. His last film, "The Myth of the American Sleepover," centered on suburban Detroit teenagers seeking love and adventure.
