Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' steadily built up the latter half of its first season with the 2014 arrival of Deathlok, Lady Sif and more, but it seams the March 4 premiere, "T.A.H.I.T.I.," may bring more marvels than we bargained for. Not only does the latest trailer's "Uprising" bring Bill Paxton in as S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent John Garrett and our first footage of Lady Sif, but a subtle clue may bring a Captain America cameo, as well!
Marvel TV has some fairly exciting weeks ahead for us, between 'Thor' character Lady Sif dropping into 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' and the subsequent 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' sneak peek, but lest we forget, February's "T.R.A.C.K.S." left poor Skye (Chloe Bennet) in some major peril. The first four minutes of next week's "T.A.H.I.T.I." (we know, we know) have arrived online, and things definitely look bleak for the newest 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'
If you say you saw 'The Avengers' coming, you're a liar.
And we're not necessarily talking about the film's massive box office success or cultural impact, either. That's all after-the-fact stuff. We're talking about the fact that the film exists in the first place. We're talking about how Marvel Studios (with a little help from some deep-pocketed friends) managed to create a series of individual franchises with their own films and characters before having them all come together in a special crossover event. 'The Avengers' didn't just unite Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk, it openly acknowledged that all of these characters lived in the same world and that the events of their own films could actually have an impact on each other.
They all live in the same universe ... and audiences love it.
As ABC plans to premiere a new hourlong special diving deeper into the Marvel Cinematic Universe than ever before, the studio continues bulking up its properties. Edgar Wright's 'Ant-Man' is the latest to make some major additions to its cast as the studio is currently in negotiations with 'The Conjuring' (and 'The Conjuring 2') star Patrick Wilson, along with the now confirmed talks with Michael Pena.
'Avengers 2' has only just begun filming, but if you already can't wait for next summer, you can get your first look at the superhero sequel next month as ABC premieres the special, 'Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe,' which will include a "sneak peek" at 'Avengers 2' and other upcoming Marvel properties.
President Barack Obama spoke at a Manufacturing Innovation event on Tuesday and announced two new public-private manufacturing innovation institutes – in Chicago and Detroit - with a surprising revelation: "I'm here to announce that we're building Iron Man."
This morning saw our first look at 'Thor''s Jaimie Alexander armoring up for her 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' appearance as Lady Sif, but we've still got the Marvel ABC drama's March 4 installment "T.A.H.I.T.I." standing in between. The full set of photos and a brand-new clip have arrived, featuring Bill Paxton's bullet-ridden debut as comic S.H.I.E.L.D. agent John Garrett!
Relatively little of Marvel's forthcoming Netflix 'Defenders' project have emerged, apart from the writing minds behind 'Daredevil' and 'Jessica Jones,' but now New Yorkers have something special to look forward to. Marvel's coming Netflix series will principally shoot on location in their proper New York City hometown, with 'Daredevil' set to begin filming in summer 2014!
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' will first make a stop in "T.A.H.I.T.I." next week in their efforts to save the fallen Skye, but the following week's "Yes Men" with 'Thor' star Jaimie Alexander's Lady Sif will prove the most marvelous of all! The full set of ass-kicking photos for Sif's Earth adventure has arrived, including our first look at Asgardian Marvel villain Lorelei!
Like any Marvel Studios sequel, 'Captain America 2' looks to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe in many exciting ways and introduce new characters straight from the pages of the comics. The biggest addition to Steve Rogers' world this time around is Sam Wilson, aka the Falcon, and now the winged warrior, played by the wonderful Anthony Mackie, has his own 'Captain America 2' poster.
