Late last week, surprising rumors emerged that Marvel would develop an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff for ABC, the focus of which would become clear by Season 2's end. Now, another report has arrived claiming 12 Years A Slave writer John Ridley has partnered with Marvel to develop another ABC series, but is it the same potential spinoff?

Warner Bros. has planned one of the most ambitious trailer launches in history for their upcoming Man of Steel sequel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. On Monday, April 20, fans can attend a special event at IMAX theaters around the country where the new Batman v Superman trailer will debut after a special introduction from director Zack Snyder. They spent this week teasing that big unveiling with previews of the preview on Snyder’s Twitter feed. This was a carefully orchestrated media event.
A big part of the fun of the MCU is watching various superheroes pop up in other superhero films, and Marvel has also been taking that approach by having their film stars (sparingly) appear on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. This helps solidify Marvel’s “everything is connected” approach, but will the studio go the same route with their Netflix shows? According to a new rumor, that may be the case.
Jared Leto’s hair is kind of a big deal right now. It’s become its own entity, mutating until it eventually takes its final form. It looks like we’re very close now, as the Suicide Squad star has revealed a selfie in which he sports some signature Joker-green hair, along with a little bit of lipstick, which really does make his eyes pop, you know? Sadly, we have had no updates on the hair belonging to any of his co-stars, as Leto continues to steal their hair-thunder.
Chris Evans has the distinction of playing two very different characters in the Marvel universe. He was both The Human Torch in Fantastic Four and its sequel Rise of the Silver Surfer, and now plays Captain America in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But he's not the only actor to double up Marvel roles. Ray Stevenson starred as The Punisher in Punisher: War Zone and later would play Volstagg in Thor and Thor: The Dark World. These are just some of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which goes dark with The Punisher!
Last night’s Arrow installment “Broken Arrow” brought plenty of bodies and bloodshed, though at least one major character departed with the suggestion that they wouldn’t return, at least on a regular basis. Now, Arrow bosses have confirmed that a major character of the series won’t return as a regular in Season 4, but may drop back in a few weeks from now.
Arrow fans have been anticipating that Season 3 would drop plenty of bodies before its finale, but good grief, did tonight’s “Broken Arrow” spill a good deal of blood for a CW drama. Find out who from #TeamArrow landed themselves on the wrong end of a blade, and what Atom-ic and Flash-y mysteries are afoot by our full review!
A little over an hour ago, it was reported that Warner Bros. was seriously considering Angelina Jolie to replace Michelle MacLaren on Wonder Woman. Although she may have been considered, it looks like the studio is going in another direction — WB has hired Patty Jenkins to direct the Wonder Woman solo film, and if that name sounds familiar, that’s because she was originally attached to direct Thor: The Dark World.
Scarlett Johansson made an impressive, ass-kicking debut in Iron Man 2, but she really solidified herself as more than just a resourceful spy with amazing gymnastic skills in the first Avengers film. Since then, we’ve been dying for Black Widow to get her own solo movie, and as excited as we’ve all be for Marvel to make their female-centric superhero movie debut with Captain Marvel, it’s odd that the studio hasn’t announced a Black Widow film yet. According to Scarlett Johansson, it’s been a topic of conversation.
Yesterday we reported on Zack Snyder’s wacky little plan to deliver the first Batman v Superman trailer a bit early. That trailer is attached to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and will hit theaters on May 1. For fans who can’t wait that long, Snyder has concocted a plan to allow you to see the trailer early — instead of simply releasing it online next week, Warner Bros. will screen the trailer in a theater. But it won’t be just any theater. They’re taking it to IMAX.
