On Request Magazine Week in Review

1) On top of the casting of Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlett Witch, Aaron Taylor Johnson as Quicksilver, James Spader as Ultron, and Thomas Kretschmann as Baron Von Strucker, Iron Man actor Paul Bettany, known as the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S., the computer A.I. of Iron Man, is now tapped to become The Vision. In the comics, the Vision is an android created by Ultron to destroy the Avengers. It’ll be interesting to see how this will play out on screen.

2) Shameless had a stellar and heartbreaking week. While Fiona’s personal relationship struggles came to a head, Lip searched for his missing brother Ian, and Frank continued his struggle to get a liver transport with his eldest daughter. Amazing acting as always from Emmy Rossum and William H Macy.

3) The CW has renewed a slew of shows early, including Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Reign, and The Originals.

4) Fox has started casting for their batman prequel show Gotham, which will follow Detective James Gordon and a young Bruce Wayne. Ben McKenzie will play Gordon, while Donal Logue will play Detective Harvey Bullock, and Robin Taylor will play Oswald Cobblepot, a.k.a. The Penguin.
