'Avengers 2' doesn't come out until next summer and hasn't started filming with its star-studded cast yet, but ABC pre-empted Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' tonight to bring us 'Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe,' a one-hour special on Marvel Studios, which concluded with a never-before-seen sneak peek of the upcoming superhero sequel.
'The Avengers' (and now 'Avengers 2') director Joss Whedon has been involved with many aspects of the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe in making sure all the standalone movies jive with what he has in the works for the major team-ups. For 'Captain America 2,' though it was pretty much assumed, Whedon has been confirmed to have directed one of the post-credits scenes, which should already tell you something ...
'Avengers 2', one of the biggest films hitting theaters over the next few years, has officially begun filming today in Johannesburg, South Africa, where it will spend the next two weeks. While many have speculated that this could mean the addition of African hero, Black Panther, we've got some details on exactly what director Joss Whedon is shooting this month.
Long before Joss Whedon made the hit TV show 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' he wrote the film of the same name -- released in 1992, 'Buffy' follows Kristy Swanson as the titular heroine, a cheerleader who discovers that it is her destiny to hunt and kill vampires. Co-starring Luke Perry and Donald Sutherland, the film was a moderate success, though it's often forgotten in the shadow of Whedon's wildly popular TV show starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. Twenty-two years later, we take a look back at the cast of this '90s classic and see what they're up to now.
Time has been very kind to 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' a show whose cult of rabid fans has grown steadily as the profile of its creator, Joss Whedon, has gotten larger. Blending fantasy, horror, adventure and comedy into one witty and weighty package, the saga of Buffy Summers is one of television's greatest accomplishments, a show with such incredible highs that it makes most serialized storytelling look downright stagnant
'Thor 2' will take movie goers into the depths of 'The Dark World' and introduce us to a few not-so-famous comic book villains from the Marvel universe -- the Dark Elves, led by Malekith the Accursed and his right-hand man and lieutenant Algrim/Kurse. Before you see the Asgardian Avenger's next solo adventure, we spoke with Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays the latter character(s), to offer a primer to this new race of villains and his experience with tackling two roles at once.
Regardless of the mixed reception Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has come to endure, there remains the exciting prospect of Marvel's TV future, especially with possibly four new series on the way. Getting 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' off the ground was no easy feat, however, as Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb recently opened up about Guillermo del Toro's failed 'Hulk' series, and the big names in the running for future Marvel TV.
Just the other day, we learned that 'The Avengers 2' was officially adding Elizabeth Olsen to the cast as Scarlet Witch. Now what about her brother? Well, after months of teasing his involvement, it looks like Olsen's 'Godzilla' co-star, Aaron Johnson, is officially on board as well, playing her on-screen sibling Quicksilver.
The gravy train never ends for Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' between new trailers for the season and potential announcements of Cobie Smulders' return as Maria Hill, and no amount of DC TV shockers will steal the thunder from last night's premiere. Hey, speaking of premieres, how would you like to catch the full 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' premiere online right now? We thought you might!
