‘Dark Knight Rises’ Casting, ‘Terminator’ Skynet and Olivia Wilde Love Scenes in Today’s Twitter-Wood

We reported on it weeks ago, but it was made official yesterday: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Marion Cotilliard will be joining the cast of “The Dark Knight Rises.” And if it wasn’t for Twitter, we’d have no idea how meta this casting really was.

According to the James Cameron blockbuster “The Terminator,” the artificial intelligence in the Skynet program went live yesterday, which means that our inevitable destruction is just hours away! Since we’re all about to die, you might as well read a few predictions for what might be in store for the robot apocalypse.

And a beautiful actress talks about filming love scenes! We won’t give it away, but it involves lots and lots of high fives.

I’m @TravisHelwig and this Twitter-Wood for April 20th, 2011.
