Big Lost News
Spoiler alert: Stop reading now if you don't want to know about something that will be upcoming in season 4 of Lost... I'll post the spoiler in red, and you can skip past it to below, where I have news on other shows.

It was revealed today by an ABC exec that Harold Perrineau, who plays Michael, will be returning to the cast of Lost in season 4. There's no word on if he's coming back with Walt, the exec only mentioned Michael. We all knew it would have to happen (I mean, you don't build up a backstory like that and just leave it).

Meanwhile, check out Rob McKenzie's column from today's National Post on the Heroes season 2 information. One interesting reveal is that the globetrotting will become far wider than it was in season 1:

During a short news conference, Tim Kring, the series' low-key reator, divulged the rough itinerary for his conflicting bands of sudden superheroes: "We have a story that's making its way north from Central America, so we'll see countries along the way. We are definitely in Japan. We are definitely in Egypt for a sec. We're in Haiti. Where else are we? We're in Ukraine. We're kind of all over the place. Mexico definitely."

The article's worth reading just for the reporter getting ganged up on by the cast when he dared mention Heroes is a plot-driven show, and not a character-driven one.

I wanted to talk about more, but I finished Book 7 about 10 minutes ago, and I'm kinda numb right now. I'll post extensively on it tomorrow. I need to let it sink in.

Looks like Sylar and the Petrelli's are back, but this doesn't look good for DL.

In non-spoiler Heroes news, DC comics is publishing a compilation of the online comics. It is due out this fall.

This is good news, it will be interesting to see how they throw him back into the story.

It was also just revealed that UbiSoft broke a deal to make a game based on Heroes, as well.
So, they got two huge properties now, with Lost and Heroes. Hopefully they deliver the goods!

More Lost News from Comicon

Season 4 will feature both flashbacks and flashforwards, a Danielle flashback, will reveal Libby's story, and how/why Ben got caught in Danielle's trap (and that it wasn't intentional on his part).

I was actually just posting on that when you posted this comment (it's up now). It might be better to link to the article and let people decide if they want to check it out. Some people might consider all of your information spoilers. :)

My theory vis a vis Michael? We'll see Walt in flash-forward. This will allow for him being, well, three years older.
