There are two reasons why superheroes tend to change their costumes every time a sequel rolls around: (A) it gives the filmmakers a chance to put their own unique stamp on them, and (B) it means they can release a new action figure. Thanks to video from the set of 'The Avengers 2,' we've already seen what Hawkeye's new outfit looks like and received our first look at the costumes for the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, but today brings a look at Captain America's new getup.
One after the other, Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has been adding recognizable names and characters for the latter half of its inaugural season, from Hulkbusters, to Patton Oswalt and a famous cellist, and today is no exception. 'Twilight' franchise star Patrick Brennan is the latest name to join the ranks, portraying Marvel superhero Blackout, while a new sneak peek from "End of the Beginning" sees The Clairvoyant doing just as much damage.
Time will tell if Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' can earn back the show's good will against the likes of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' and Marvel's other cinematic offerings, but its latest casting of Whedon alum Amy Acker as Coulson's oft-mentioned cellist was certainly a step in the right direction. Check out a first look at the character from an upcoming episode of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' along with insight from Acker herself!
Last year, Disney announced development on its first animated Marvel feature film, 'Big Hero 6,' though after the studio debuted the first concept trailer and images at last year's D23 Expo, we had still yet to learn of any voice cast additions. That all changes as stand-up comic and 'Cloverfield' star T.J. Miller becomes the first actor to land a role in the film.
Well, this was a trifle unexpected. Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has crafted an intriguing mystery around Coulson's resurrection, which apparently included a compound derived from a blue alien corpse, but thus far Marvel has only nodded along with fan theories about Kree, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' races, and more. Now, it seems series star Chloe Bennet may have definitively confirmed the identity of the mysterious creature in a new interview...
Yesterday capped off an exciting round of Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' casting with the addition of Whedonverse vet Amy Acker as Coulson's infamous cellist, but Acker's former 'Angel' co-star J. August Richards may yet cause the most commotion. The first clip from next week's "End of the Beginning" has arrived, as Richards' Deathlok goes on the offense against the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'!
Just when we thought Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' had made its most fan-pleasing cast in the form of nerd icon Patton Oswalt, the ABC 'Avengers'-adjacent series has tapped a Joss Whedon icon for its most on-point casting yet. 'Angel' and 'Dollhouse' alum Amy Acker will pick up horse-hair as Agent Coulson's infamous Portland cellist, but what brings the once-dead Agent back into her life?
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has had a difficult road to sustaining fan interest in the shadow of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' and now the increasingly visual 'Avengers: Age of Ultron,' but April 1 return episode "End of the Beginning" looks more and more like J. August Richards' Deathlok will command the spotlight. See the Marvel character brought to life in his metal glory with the latest trailer, along with new intel on Coulson's blue alien mystery!
