Apart from a resurrected Agent Coulson, Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' excites us the most for its ability to tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe on a weekly basis, rather than waiting for each individual movie. So, which of Marvel's upcoming slate will have the most direct tie into 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?' Why, 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' says series star Clark Gregg!
We realize that the prospect of a 'Firefly' shocker a decade after the show had been cancelled seems like a bit of a stretch, but a recently-revealed bit of trivia from Joss Whedon has proven too good to ignore. In promoting 'Much Ado About Nothing,' Whedon revealed his own past Shakespearean ambitions for 'Firefly,' having once envisioned an episode guest starring 'Buffy' / 'Angel' alum and Whedon favorites Amy Acker, Alexis Denisof, and James Marsters!
It's not as if there had been any doubt that ABC and Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' would prove the Comic-Con 2013 TV event of the summer, but at last we have confirmation of when and where fans can fight to attend the official panel. Additionally, ABC's 'Once Upon A Time' spinoff 'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' will make its presence known, but who from either series will show up at Comic-Con 2013?
One of the great joys of the Marvel movie universe has been watching the various characters and storylines overlap and converge in surprising and exciting ways. However, fans shouldn't get too excited about a potential 'Avengers' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' crossover anytime soon. According to Joss Whedon, that isn't happening. (At least not yet.)
While Joss Whedon continues to make the rounds for his latest cinematic triumph, the admittedly smaller-scale 'Much Ado About Nothing,' hungry Marvel fans continue to press for news from ABC's forthcoming Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' series. We've heard a good deal about the "everyman" approach, but what does Whedon have to say about the smaller-scale budget, or the series' focus on gadgetry and effects?
When Joss Whedon announced he was adding two new characters to 'Avengers 2' in the brother/sister team of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, fans couldn't help but immediately start speculating who would be cast as the new additions to the team. Previously, we reported that Irish actress Saoirse Ronan was the top choice for Scarlet Witch and now we know who Whedon and Marvel have their eye on to play Quicksilver. And it's a name superhero movie fans will definitely be familiar with.
The first trailer for Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' gave us a clue as to which 'Avengers' stars (beside Coulson) would make the first appearance in ABC's new series. But superheroes aren't the only Marvel characters we'd want to see. Were the man himself, Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, to show up in Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' how would Jackson want it to be done?
