Even though we finally saw Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot in all its glory at Comic-Con 2013, we've been anxiously awaiting news from the episodes beyond. Now, our first taste of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' as an ongoing series has arrived as the Joss Whedon-produced series adds former 'Ghost Whisperer' star David Conrad in a mysterious new role. So, what Marvel character will we be speculating about now?
Just because Comic-Con 2013 has come and gone, and we've finally seen Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot, you didn't think the preview goodies would stop there, did you? Following video introductions to Agents Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), Leo Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) and Gemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), it's time to meet Ming Na's ass-kicking Agent Melinda May!
Joss Whedon's announcement at San Diego Comic-Con that his 'Avengers 2' takes its official title from the 'Age of Ultron' comics sent an explosion of excitement throughout the buzzing Hall H, but apparently this plan was in the works for months prior. As Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige reiterated a point Whedon made, the movie won't follow the classic storyline and Ultron origin, instead utilizing plot points from various 'Avengers' adventures.
Though we're still sworn to secrecy on all the details from Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot screened at Comic-Con 2013, a few of the Joss Whedon-directed 'Avengers' tie-in series have come to light. More than Cobie Smulders' confirmed return however, we've got a brand new set of photos from Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot to tide eager fans over until the September 24 premiere!
The immediate reaction following the Comic-Con 2013 reveal of 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' was excitement...followed shortly thereafter by lots and lots of questions. In his only interview after Marvel's Comic-Con panel, Joss Whedon answers your questions about 'Avengers 2' and explains what he has in store for Ultron and the sequel.
Let's face it, most of us aren't at Comic-Con 2013, which means we don't get to see exclusive footage and trailers, and all that. The up side is that there's no lines to wait in (and possibly being denied seeing said exclusives because you didn't want to wait in line the night before), and there's less smells to navigate. The other up side? A lot of that content gets online eventually, and here we have Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' panel in full.
Browncoats, rejoice! Even though it's been over 10 years since 'Firefly' was taken off the air, love for Joss Whedon's sci-fi series keeps on going strong. And while we might not see the series resurrected, it's coming back to life in other forms, such as the newly-announced Firefly Online social online role-playing game.
Late last week we had a chance to get up close and personal with Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." recruit Grant Ward, and now it's time to meet the more Whedon-friendly tech pair backing up the team, Agents Leo Fitz (Iain de Caestecker) and Gemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) with a new behind-the scenes video!
