Just the other day Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' bought itself some serious season 2 credit with the addition of Adrianne Palicki as Marvel's Mockingbird, but now the 'Avengers'-adjacent series has added what might be its most high-profile Marvel baddie yet. 'Teen Wolf' star Brian Patrick Wade will play Carl "Crusher" Creel, better known as Hulk and Thor villain "The Absorbing Man," as revealed in the first new photo from the season premiere!
Evangeline Lilly has only been confirmed so far as playing Hope van Dyne in 'Ant-Man', daughter of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet van Dyne. In the comics, Janet is The Wasp, and many have speculated that, like how Hank Pym passes the mantle of Ant-Man to a younger version (Scott Lang, as played by Paul Rudd), Hope would take up the mantle of The Wasp. There's no confirmation yet, but Lilly showed off her 'Ant-Man' look and it certainly looks Wasp-y.
No, you shouldn't adjust your computer screen. The above photo is of Vincent D'Onofrio, who shaved his head for his role as Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin) in Marvel's upcoming 'Daredevil' series, to stream on Netflix in 2015. As he told ScreenCrush earlier today, tonight he's filming a big scene in Brooklyn where "it’s the first time you see my character do something physical." Given how intimidating the 'Law & Order: Criminal Intent' vet looks in person with this new look -- mind you, he's also 6'4'' -- we can't wait to see how his character comes to life on-screen.
By now, everyone is familiar with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, where people heed the call to throw buckets of ice water on themselves to spread awareness of ALS and raise donations to support The ALS Association. Everyone, from your many Facebook friends to A-list celebs have been participating, but, for us, there's nothing like seeing the likes of Thor, Iron Man and Star-Lord step up to the plate.
Yesterday, Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' offered a cryptic season 2 tease in the form of a mysterious billboard looming over Los Angeles, but today's big reveal flies far higher. One-time 'Wonder Woman' star and all-around asskicker Adrianne Palicki is officially trading DC for Marvel, signing onto 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 as the show's first ostensible costumed hero, Bobbi "Mockingbird" Morse.
Ever since James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' got Marvelites hooked on these intergalactic superheroes with attitude, the cosplay world has been a boomin' with Rocket Raccoons, Gamoras, Star-Lords and even a bunch of Nebulas, but nothing makes us say "I am Groot" quite like this incredible Groot cosplay.
With 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' hitting DVD and Blu-ray in a couple of weeks, and 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' in the works, Marvel has set up a cool new viral site that neatly ties everything together (just like their movie universe). And fans will be rewarded handsomely for visiting the site to find out if they're on team S.H.I.E.L.D. or part of the nefarious Hydra organization.
During Comic-Con, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told ScreenCrush that he wasn't ready to announce anything with regards to 'Doctor Strange' at the time, and now a new report may help shed a bit more light on its status. The latest word to leak out of the MCU is that Marvel is sick of all the origin stories and, starting with 'Doctor Strange,' won't be featuring them in the future.
