Marvel surprised us all the other day with the revelation that ‘Captain America’ spinoff one-shot ‘Agent Carter’ could potentially join ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ in her own ongoing TV series, while a number of other potential Marvel series projects have entered the works. We’ve given our picks for what unseen Marvel characters deserve their own TV series, but who from the established cinematic universe would we most want to see in their own live-action TV series spinoff?
'Arrow' season 2 took a major swerve last month when producers announced that DC superhero The Flash would arrive in Starling City to set up his own spin-off, the 'Arrow' universe up to that point having purposefully excluded the use of superpowers. New comments from executive producer Marc Guggenheim suggest however, that 'Flash' won't tonally detract from the world of 'Arrow,' instead setting up a cohabitant relationship akin to Marvel's 'The Avengers.'
A few hours ago, news outlets jumped the gun a bit in announcing that ABC had officially greenlit Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' to series, though no such announcement had yet come. The pickup is fully expected mind you, but new intel suggests the official announcement won't come until sometime tomorrow. But the real question is, what's this latest 'Hulk'-like clip that ABC briefly released along with the news?
Ever wanted to see what the Hulk might have looked like had he made his big-screen debut in 1997? Thanks to the rediscovery of some long-lost concept designs and storyboards, you now can get a glimpse at the 'Hulk' movie that never was (and never should have been). Smash after the break to check out a handful of 16-year-old 'Hulk' sketches.
Marvel fans, this is your lucky day. We're offering up that epic Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 1 Box Set -- includes all the Phase 1 Marvel movies, a slew of bonus features and a look at Phase 2 -- for one lucky reader.
This has been a major point of speculation in the Marvel fan universe as of late with rumors of solo 'Huk' films featuring the 'Planet Hulk' and 'World War Hulk' storylines, though they were soon shot down by both Joss Whedon and Marvel. Still, many of us are secretly hoping that our favorite big green guy will get the same screen time as Captain America and Iron Man, but will it actually happen? Here's the latest on this from Mark Ruffalo...
After 'The Avengers' it seemed a foregone conclusion that The Hulk would eventually get his own movie. Then came the rumors that a big part of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe would involved Hulk being sent to outer space after 'The Avengers 2' launching the 'Planet Hulk' storyline from the comics. But 'Avengers' director and Marvel Godfather Joss Whedon has commented on the Planet Hulk rumors and he calls the idea "nonsense."
We knew that Marvel has longterm plans for their movie universe, but we didn't know they were this longterm. It turns out that they're not just thinking about 'Iron Man 3,' 'Thor: The Dark World,' 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' 'Guardians of the Galaxy' and the second 'Avengers' movie -- they're already thinking about a third 'Avengers' movie...and the major role The Hulk will play in the coming films. The following news will be nothing new to comic fans, but casual viewers should know that this is pretty major SPOILER territory.
