Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has been a bit less transparent in promoting a new season than that of its DC counterparts, but that hasn't stopped the ABC drama from getting viewers in on the game of its latest mystery. We know why Coulson lives, but what's going on in Phil's noodle to be scrawling alien equations all over a Hollywood billboard for 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2?
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, baby Groot dances forever, Warner Bros. moves ahead with 'Aquaman,' and 'Ant-Man' begins filming.
Following the big appearance at Comic-Con 2014, where stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll dished on their superhero heist film alongside director Peyton Reed, Marvel's 'Ant-Man' officially announced the start of production and, along with it, its full cast.
Just last week saw Sony TV's forthcoming 'Powers' series adding its highest profile cast to date with comedian Eddie Izzard, but now the comic-adapted drama has entered a whole new district. Sharlto Copley has been tapped for the leading role in PlayStation's original 'Powers' series, along with 'The Killing' vet Michelle Forbes in a significant part.
'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' is set to hit DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, August 19, but before then, take a look at some behind-the-scenes footage, courtesy of Yahoo Movies, showing just how Jamie Foxx assumed the role of Electro.
NBC's 'Constantine' seemingly rededicated itself to exploring DC roots its the most recent casting, and at long last, the TV adaptation of our 'Hellblazer' demon detective has its big bad. Michael James Shaw has been cast in the 'Constantine' role of the villainous Papa Midnite, a "formidable magical adversary" for our leading man.
We're still not entirely certain what to make of Sony TV's forthcoming 'Powers' adaptation, set to debut in December 2014 as a PlayStation original series, but at the very least the comic drama's cast is shaping up nicely. Comedian Eddie Izzard has joined the series in a villainous new role, along with recent 'Game of Thrones' baddie Noah Taylor, and Olesya Rulin.
NBC's 'Constantine' TV series brought to Comic-Con 2014 an updated version of its pilot to help explain its early season cast change, but also the good news that veteran genre composer Bear McCreary would score the series based on DC's 'Hellblazer' comic. Now, a new featurette for the 'Constantine' TV series reveals McCreary's moody composure, blending hard rock with harpischord for DC's demon detective.
Much like the comic books on which they're based, the Marvel movies pride themselves on their ability to cross each other's characters over into different storylines, and the upcoming 'Ant-Man' will be no different. We've seen such instances as Captain America pop up briefly in 'Thor: The Dark World,' and Agent Coulson and Nick Fury show up in a handful of titles, so which Marvel movie characters from the 'Captain America' universe might show up in Peyton Reed's 'Ant-Man'?
When 'Batman vs. Superman' announced that Ben Affleck would be the new Batman, it wasn't exactly met with worldwide acclaim. And, by that, we mean everyone pretty much hated it. (To be fair, we really liked it!) Affleck hasn't talked much about the film since he was cast, but he recently admitted he knows you hate him as Batman, and he thinks that's great. Wait, what?
