Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ assembles its first season 2 installment in the “Shadows,” as Coulson's efforts to rebuild the organization come up against Hydra mercenary Carl "Crusher" Creel (Brian Patrick Wade), while a mysterious artifact from the 'Agent Carter' era necessitates a run-in with the U.S. government.
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' will return from the "Shadows" for a second season tonight, the first of which to not have a major Marvel movie hanging over its head, absorbing plot from its small-screen brethren. The 'Avengers'-adjacent drama came with some lofty expectations in its inaugural season, but with lessons learned, we took a comprehensive look at the pitfalls, the possibilities, the perils and the promise of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2.
We've seen college course offerings focus on the 'Harry Potter' universe, comic books, and even one specifically for 'The Walking Dead,' but now it's Marvel's turn to educate younglings about the intricacies of their Cinematic Universe.
'Captain America' star Hayley Atwell will return as Marvel's 'Agent Carter' as soon as tomorrow's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 premiere, but Peggy's spinoff series may yet upstage ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent drama. The latest to join the cast of 'Agent Carter' is none other than 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'True Detective' star Shea Whigham, ostensibly the show's male lead.
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has been generous with next week's premiere in providing plenty of clips, photos and surprises lurking in the "Shadows," but now the ABC drama has a simple tool to expose its new edge. See the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' heading into darkness with a moody new poster for season 2, premiering September 23!
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has opened its classified season 2 files to reveal quite a few new faces and footage of the September 23 premiere, but it seems at least one early season 2 story will call back to the ABC drama's pre-Hydra days. Dylan Minnette will return as Donnie Gill, A.K.A. Marvel supervillain Blizzard, according to a new synopsis for season 2's third episode "Making Friends and Influencing People."
If you thought studios securing release dates years in advance for movies that don't even have titles yet was crazy, you haven't seen anything yet. Now, television networks are now buying the rights to air those untitled movies years before they're even released in theaters. Specifically, TNT has signed on the dotted line with Marvel Studios to air the next five Marvel movies, which includes 'Avengers 2,' 'Captain America 3,' 'Ant-Man' and, um, two others.
As next week's Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 premiere creeps further and further out of the "Shadows," our renewed optimism for ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent series only grows. Cue the latest clip from Tuesday's premiere, as new recruit Lucy Lawless goes dark on some rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and has a not-so-friendly encounter with Marvel supervillain The Absorbing Man!
Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe became a huge success, there were immediate imitators trying to follow that same model. From the 'Justice League' films to 'Amazing Spider-Man' and, heck, even the upcoming 'Star Wars' movies. It all seemed a bit much, to be honest. But, this latest news might take the cake (or donut?) when it comes to biting style. Dan Aykroyd, the only one involved with the original 'Ghostbusters' who seems to want to have anything to do with the new 'Ghostbusters' says he wants to relaunch the franchise following the Marvel "shared universe" strategy.
While we still don't have a 'Doctor Strange' star as Joaquin Phoenix tries to figure out if he really wants to make a superhero movie, we may be getting closer to an announcement as Marvel has set some other important dates for the film. Shooting on 'Doctor Strange' is scheduled to begin in May 2015 in London's Pinewood-Shepperton Studios and the film has snagged one of the previously announced Marvel release dates.
