Our first real look at Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 arrived with Comic-Con 2014, but even then, details were relatively light on the who, what and where of ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent series in its second run. Now, we may have a heading, as Adrian Pasdar is confirmed to reprise his role as typical Hulk-baddie Glenn Talbot in the September premiere, while Kyle MacLachlan will pop up as a "Doctor" with major ties to one of the cast. How very Strange!

Although 'Guardians of the Galaxy' has already been in theaters for several days now, that's not keeping Marvel from releasing some fun 'Guardians' goodies -- like this latest featurette, in which Chris Pratt takes a very MTV's 'Cribs'-style approach to showing us around Peter Quill/Star-Lord's spaceship, the Milano.
The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' might have torn around the universe (and the box office) this weekend, but considering how close to home Netflix's forthcoming 'Daredevil' TV series continues to shoot, things have been awfully quiet. Enter some intrepid Instagramming, with our first grainy look at 'Boardwalk Empire' star Charlie Cox filming as blind lawyer Matt Murdock, The Man Without Fear!
We first met the cinematic version of Thanos in 2012 -- his face smiling at us during a mid-credits sequence of ‘The Avengers,’ there to let us know that this guy is the mastermind behind the whole operation. OK then! Eventually we learn that Thanos is trying to collect the Infinity Stones, because if he has those, he will become a god. Fair enough. Though, now, after ten movies in the Marvel cinematic universe – ten! – Thanos has a grand total of zero Infinity Stones. So far, Thanos is terrible at being a supervillain.
When you head to the theater to see 'Guardians of the Galaxy' this weekend, you'll undoubtedly walk out with a favorite character: the surprisingly lovable Groot, the foul-mouthed Rocket Raccoon, the charismatic Star-Lord, the tough but hilarious Drax -- or maybe you'll fall in love with Zoe Saldana's green-skinned, badass Gamora. With all that screen time shared between so many heroes (and villains, and peripheral characters), it'll leave you wanting to see more of Gamora and her talents. Not that that's a bad thing.
Part of the fun of watching a Marvel movie is looking out for all those Easter eggs strewn throughout, and you can be sure 'Guardians of the Galaxy' has a handful, as well. But in case you missed any of them, from the first 'Iron Man' movie all the way up to 'Thor: The Dark World,' MTV compiled a handy video running down all of them, explaining their significance.
