Criterion just tweeted a Nina Simone song. Any movies that could point to?

Indisputably Before Sunset.
SpoilerShow
The song plays at the end of the film, with Julie Delpy dancing to it as she tells Ethan Hawke: "Baby, you are gonna miss that plane."

Exactly, "Just In Time" is the song used at the end of Before Sunset.

Mike Mills visited, and according to their Twitter was there to discuss his influences, so sounds like an extra for something

All in the Family: A Conversation with Maren Ade

I'm not sure why I was under the impression that SPC was handling Toni Erdmann's US distribution, but a Criterion release would be spectacular!

SPC is handling the distribution, at least theatrically.

Unlike most of these "guest" photos, I don't think he's got anything to promote, so it seems pretty likely he's working on something (I think the educated guess from the Forthcoming thread that they might do a special box later this year seems increasingly likely)

The use of a Polaroid and the way Wong's name is written at the bottom as ID is how Guy Pearce's character in Memento identified people he wanted to remember. So this must be the infamous Double Clue, and Memento is without any doubt coming as well (probably with commentary by Wong).

As much as I would love to see Memento in the Collection (and it's still very possible) the use of the Polaroid has been used before by the folks of Criterion. If you scroll up this thread a little you'll see a Polaroid with Chloe Sevigny and Lizzie Nastro. So, the Polaroid is coincidental.

Pretty sure that entire post was sarcasm.

If you mean my post, yeah, just a joke. But PfR73, nicely played. I got a good laugh outta that response.

What can we expect out of a WKW box? Fallen Angels, Happy Together, 2046?

Another wrinkle in the "should Wong Kar-wai be written with or without a hyphen" controversy! Not that anyone follows it but me and maybe five or six other extreme pedants worldwide. (A few years ago there was a report somewhere that Wong doesn't like the hyphen, and the official English-language publicity for The Grandmaster didn't use it.)

At minimum it should be Chungking Express (which we know Janus has now) and the two ex-Kino titles that are also owned by Wong's company (Fallen Angels and Happy Together). Kino also released As Tears Go By and Days of Being Wild, but those have a different owner (Media Asia) and Kino rather conspicuously never upgraded them to Blu. (They do have Blu releases in Asia.) And Sony could license 2046 and maybe even Ashes of Time, or at least the redux version.

My guess is everything in the old Kino box. Ditto Haneke and Kieslowski.

Why does everyone think they're releasing a box set, why not just individual releases? What am I missing?

I'm curious to know this as well. Is it just wishful thinking on everyone's part, or are there actually hints pointing to something like this?

WKW was in-office, which implies new discs, and we know they're sitting on Chungking Express to be rereleased, and incorporating it into a box seems a natural way to do that.
