Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' has landed all across the board in its first season, but with promotion and crossover for 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' at an all-time high, ABC is bringing out the big guns. Check out the opening minutes of next week's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' installment "Turn, Turn, Turn," as Bill Paxton's John Garrett flies the unfriendly S.H.I.E.L.D. skies with a little Blue Oyster Cult!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
As its title implies, 'Captain America 2' is largely inspired by Ed Brubaker and artist Steve Epting's celebrated, Eisner-award winning comic book storyline "The Winter Soldier." Although ultimately very different from what transpires in the big screen version, the broad strokes remain the same: Steve Rogers finds himself hunting, and being hunted by, a ruthless assassin who may or may not be his supposedly dead best friend, Bucky Barnes.
The movie uses Brubaker's Captain America run to fuel the first half of the film and provide an antagonist who can serve as an emotionally hard-hitting threat to the star-spangled Avenger. However, while it's the most obvious, it's not the only Marvel comic run heavily quoted in the film. There's another acclaimed comic series that not only informs the biggest twists of 'Captain America 2,' but suggests what crazy new direction the Marvel cinematic universe is heading toward on both the big and small screens.
Last night's latest 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' episode "End of the Begining" officially kicked the series into high gear with the proper emergence of Deathlok, as well as a few fast-paced reveals, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to get even busier with the release of 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier.' Last night planted quite a few seeds for the epic Cap sequel, and you can check out the first pieces of its 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' crossover right now!
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ assembles its latest installment in “End of the Beginning,” as the pursuit of Deathlok brings about a surprising revelation of the Clairvoyant, while other, more wintery-soldiery events begin to make their presence felt.
Previous ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ episode “Yes Men” saw 'Thor''s Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander) arriving to Earth in pursuit of the villainous Lorelei (Elena Satine), while Coulson wrestled with his secret knowledge of Skye's miraculous recovery, so how does ABC’s ‘Avengers‘-adjacent series keep us marveling at its inaugural season?
Read on for your in-depth recap of everything you need to know about ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’’s sixteenth episode, “End of the Beginning!”
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' officially reaches the "overwhelming" stage of its hype machine, 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' casts a bunch of new characters, and FOX unveils our first look at Jim Gordon in 'Gotham.'
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!
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?
