'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!
It’s here, it’s really here! Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ has at long last premiered its pilot episode, bringing Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) back from his ‘Avengers’ fate to lead an entirely new team through weird and wonderful cases of the Marvel universe. We’ve spoken at length about measuring our expectations, as well as how the series will integrate with the larger Marvel movies, but how does the premiere ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot finally stack up? Is Marvel’s first live-action series a hit or miss?
We are about to enter a weird new world. For many of us, this will be as simple as flipping over to ABC tonight at 8:00, listening in for some snappy banter and thrilling heroics, ultimately leaving it lay for another week while Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ gears up for its next chapter. For others (myself included), ABC’s new series represents a first step into a much larger universe, wherein the rope has been pulled back on a cinematic enterprise previously reserved for our film friends to debate, at least until the latest Marvel venture hits theaters and restarts a slow boil toward the next feature all over again.
Though Joss Whedon is busy working on the script for 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' and has admittedly been conceptualizing his sequel for some time, he still answered the call when 'Thor: The Dark World' director Alan Taylor was in trouble. According to Taylor, Whedon came in to save some major issues he was having with the film.
Superhero movie casting is often controversial, inspiring much wailing and gnashing of teeth from fanboys, but you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone who thinks that James Spader playing Ultron in 'The Avengers: Age of Ultron' is a bad idea. The three-time Emmy award-winning star of 'Boston Legal' and 'The Practice' feels like the right fit for Marvel. He's also the exact kind of actor that writer/director Joss Whedon wanted in his movie.
Exactly two weeks from today will bring the long-awaited Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' premiere, but you won't have to wait so long for new footage to come pouring out of ABC's new Marvel Universe TV series. Five brand-new clips from the pilot have hit the web, offering introductions to the new 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' team we'll soon see policing the 'Avengers' universe on a weekly basis!
