Supernatural, Couriers, Indiana Jones 4, Oliver Queen Chronicles, Spider-Man 4, Razzies, Mike Fright, Comic Previews


Creator and executive-producer of "Supernatural," Eric
, says that season two will not end with a cliffhanger as did last season. The final episode, he told Sci Fi Wire, will wrap things up and answer questions. What questions? What is Sam's destiny? What about the yellow-eyed demon? Will we see Sam and Dean's dad again? Kripke said: "
Everyone has started to accuse me of always giving cliffhangers. [There was a] big cliffhanger at the end of season one, [a] big cliffhanger going into the hiatus, and I said, 'All right, well, if everyone assumes I'm going to give cliffhangers, I'm going to surprise them at the end of . . . season [two] by not giving a cliffhanger, but [rather] giving a huge, climactic resolution that they're not expecting.' So we're doing that this season. The story is by no means over. There's major issues that still need to be resolved. But we're giving a climactic season finale that we think is going to feel epic and pretty exciting. We think the fans should be pretty stoked to see what's coming. Episode 14 will be a huge mythology episode. And then I think we go back to self-enclosed for actually a little while to get ready for the big finale showdown. And then episodes like we did similar to last year (episodes 20, 21 and 22) . . . a major sort of epic storyline to kind of wrap up the season . . . . You know where the mythology goes, and you know what end points you want to be. It's always sort of a slight of hand when you look at all the elements you've created throughout the season, and you bring them all together in a way that's satisfying to the audience. And for what it's worth, we feel we've done that. We take all the different strands (between the cops that are after them, the roadhouse, Ellen, Sam's destiny) and we feel we found a way to tie them all together in a way that'll be very surprising and shocking to the audience." "Supernatural" airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Spider-Man 4

David Koepp (who just finished the script for "Indiana Jones 4") is in talks to write a fourth Spider-Man film for Columbia Pictures. Sam Raimi is interested "if he's still interested in the character." Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and James Franco have all only been signed for a 3-picture deals. What villain (with green scales and a tail) might already be planned? Actor Dylan Baker said to If Magazine: "In this one I am still in my business suit and that's all I'll say. I'm kind of the guy that Peter Parker needs to come to whenever he has those quandaries about what's going on. All I can say is we're going to see a lot more of [me] at some point if what Sam says is true, and Sam is the guy who knows, so I am sticking
with him.
