In Star Trek Into Darkness, Captain Kirk and his team take on a new foe, travel to new planets, and generally do new, sequel-y stuff. Also: New girl Alice Eve (who plays Dr. Carol Marcus) is shown in her underwear. Many (or at least a few) viewers found the scene exceptional for the way that it undercut the character’s other abilities. If she’s a super-smart scientist, why is she stripping out of her clothes for no apparent reason? Into Darkness co-writer Damon Lindelof touched on some of these concerns in a spoiler chat with MTV (warning: very spoiler-y).

Star Trek fans everywhere have been watching, sharing and re-watching The Challenge, a sly Audi ad that, as a comedy vehicle, comfortably seats a pair of mismatched Spocks: Leonard Nimoy, the television and sci-fi icon, and his on-screen heir, Zachary Quinto, who wears the ears in Star Trek Into Darkness.
They are trash-talking frenemies in the mini-movie, but Trek producer Bryan Burke says that in grand Spock tradition there’s a vast emotion hidden behind that frosty artifice.”Their relationship is not a working relationship at all,” Burke said. ”They’re family.”
As Hollywood relationships go, the bond between Nimoy and Quinto is an anomaly. Not only does it bridge a vast generation gap (Nimoy is 82, Quinto is 35), it defies the Hollywood undertows of rivalry and status anxiety, which have made actors in similar situation behave like Betta fish when paired up.
”We spend a lot of time together, we keep in touch,” Quinto said in February just a few days after he filmed the Audi ad. “He’s a great friend. I value his presence in my life far beyond the experience we had making the first Star Trek movie and I’m grateful that it brought us together but now the friendship is a thing — it’s own thing. I love Leonard a lot.” READ FULL STORY »

Today, as part of their expanding line-up of digital-first comic books, DC Comics launches a new Batman digital comic called Legends of the Dark Knight, a series of stand-alone stories about the Caped Crusader. And to kick off Legends, DC brought together a pair of powerhouse talents. The debut issue was written by Damon Lindelof (co-creator of Lost, co-writer of Prometheus) and drawn by Jeff Lemire, the ascending comic book writer-artist whose impressive credits include the creator-owned Sweet Tooth and the critically adored Animal Man. In an exclusive interview, EW got on the phone with the dynamic duo (Lindelof was calling from the West Coast, Lemire from Canada) to talk about the roots of their collaboration and why Batman looks better when his clothes don’t quite seem to fit.

Are we still talking about Lost?! Well, executive producer Damon Lindelof still is. In a lengthy interview with The Verge, Lindelof addressed fan dissatisfaction with the supernatural saga’s polarizing ending in 2010. I’m not entirely sure whether fans are “still disappointed” about the ending, save for the grudge-holding few, but despite the untimeliness of the discussion, Lindelof provides some curious defenses to the interviewer’s extensive questioning about the show’s ending and legacy.
