For those wanting to me spoiled, take a look at the latest Ask Ausiello spoilers. For those wanting to remain spoiler free, do not read below:
Question: Got a How I Met Your Mother slap bet update?
Ausiello: Slap No. 7 will hit when you least expect it, according to exec producer Craig Thomas. “I don’t want to say exactly when the slaps are going to happen, but my personal opinion is if the very last moment of the entire series was a slap and you just cut to black, I’d be happy,” he tells us. “I don’t want to say where, when or how, but there’s more slap action coming.” Bonus HIMYM scoop: The show is rapidly aging Lily and Marshall’s son for a series of a flash-forward sequences. We’ll see Marvin at age 2 when he blurts out his first word, then again at age 6 when he’s facing a crisis at home, and then finally at age 13 when he suffers his first heartbreak.
Question: Will Barney’s Ducky return on HIMYM this season?
Ausiello: Sounds like it. “How I Met Your Mother is a bad horror movie,” says Thomas with a laugh. “Everything comes back at some point. You think it’s dead, and it just rears up at you one more time.”
Marvel Studios has released a deleted scene from Marvel’s The Avengers, arriving on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD September 25. As you may recall, actor Harry Dean Stanton had a small cameo in this superhero adventure, where he interacts with Mark Ruffalo after one of Bruce Banner’s Hulk-out episodes. This extended sequence offers more from this fan-favorite moment in the film, with Harry Dean Stanton’s security guard helpig Bruce back to the fight at Stark Tower. Take a look below:
Avengers assemble…again! And be sure to bring Joss Whedon with you! Disney is doing just that, as Disney CEO and Chairman Bob Iger told analysts during a stockholders’ conference call today today that Whedon is returning to captain the sequel to the unbelievably successful Marvel hit The Avengers.
Largely credited for making Avengers the $1.5 billion movie it turned out to be, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator will write and direct a follow-up to the adventures following Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and the rest of the Avengers.

Michael Ausiello of TV Line’s Ask Ausiello recently posted a How I Met Your Mother spoiler. For those wanting to remain spoiler free, do not read below:
Question: Will we see Barney and Robin’s engagement this season on How I Met Your Mother?
Yes — but whether it happens midway through the season or at the very end depends on the outcome of Season 9 negotiations. “Barney and Robin will get engaged this season,” confirms EP Craig Thomas. “I can guarantee that. We’ll show you how we get that far. When we will get to their actual wedding, I can’t tell you right now. But it’s going to be good.” Bonus scoop: Asked if Robin will be tasked with babysitting Marshall and Lily’s son, Marvin, Thomas all but confirmed that she would, saying, “I’m very interested to see what Robin Scherbatsky would be like for three hours with a baby.”

Oh Mother, where art thou?
While Fox staged a pretty epic phone call with American Idol judge Mariah Carey and ABC’s Dancing With the Stars: All-Stars announcement dominated headlines (Pretty easy when one of the All-Stars is Bristol Palin!), it’s no surprise that CBS had a bit of a quieter day at the 2012 Television Critics Association gathering.
Still, CBS President of Entertainment, Nina Tassler had much to talk about, including the future of How I Met Your Mother and the cancellation of CSI: Miami. Plus, LL Cool J and the rest of the NCIS: LA gang will welcome some pretty special guests this season!
Season Nine Lookin’ Fine: Earlier this month we reported that CBS and 20th Century Fox TV have started negotiations to order a ninth season of How I Met Your Mother. While it’s not official yet, Tassler reports, “They had an incredible year last year and we have a great relationship with Craig [Thomas] and Carter [Bays]. They have a strategic wrapup to the show. They know we want the show to come back next year. We’re not there yet in terms of [renewing HIMYM]. We’re in early conversations and we’re pretty optimistic.” (Source)
