Amazon's UK streaming service LOVEFiLM has announced a content deal with Warner Bros. International Television Distribution. This will bring a whole library of animated content to the service starting from today.

Shows include the iconic 1990s "Batman: The Animated Series" and all subsequent animated Batman shows, along with "Superman: The Animated Series," "Justice League" and the original and rebooted "Thundercats". [Source: THR]

Game of Thrones
Icelandic actor Hafthor Julius Bjornsson will be the third actor to take on the role of Gregor 'The Mountain' Clegane (brother of 'The Hound') in the upcoming fourth season of "Game of Thrones" on HBO.

The role was previously played by Conan Stevens and Ian Whyte in the first two seasons. However the appearances were so minor as to make recasting a minor issue, especially as the character plays a larger role in upcoming seasons. [Source: Digital Spy]

Luther
Despite its apparent end, one person hopeful for another season of the BBC's "Luther" is actress Ruth Wilson who says "I hope we carry on someday".

She also says she hasn't "heard anything" regarding a proposed spinoff series featuring her memorable Alice Morgan character. [Source: Vulture]
