As 'Iron Man 3' gets set to hit theaters this weekend, Joss Whedon continues to tease 'Avengers 2' with public comments. Just a few days after he mentioned he's adding a brother/sister team to the upcoming sequel, comes Whedon's comments on Robert Downey, Jr.'s potential retirement and the "big finale" coming in 'Avengers 2' as the superhero team gets ready to face off against Thanos.
From the moment Marvel announced that a S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series was in the works, fans hoped that beloved honorary Avenger Phil Coulson could somehow return to lead the new series, despite his apparent fate in 'The Avengers.' That wish was finally granted as 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' began production, but the mystery remains: how will Agent Coulson return from the grave? New rumors have emerged that may just have spilled the beans, so read at your own peril inside!
Even without a shred of promotional material or preview clips, we remain fairly certain Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' pilot will move forward with a full-season pickup at ABC. The network would very likely have a gold mine with a Joss Whedon-produced series tying into the blockbuster Marvel Cinematic universe, but what if ABC ultimately decides to pull the plug? Coulson himself, Clark Gregg talks about Phil's future beyond 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' inside!
Great news, folks! While we still have plenty more of the waiting game to play until we see 'The Avengers 2' in 2015, Joss Whedon has indeed finished a draft of the script and he says "it's in a very good place." That said, how would you like your first taste of what to expect from the far-from-finished storyline?
A few weeks ago, we heard the lightly unnerving news that Marvel's Joss Whedon-helmed 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series had undergone a minor name change, becoming 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' in full nomenclature. Mixed reactions to the title change aside, now we're finding that the upcoming ABC drama pilot may drop the "Marvel" in practice, to simply remain 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Clear up all the 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series confusion inside!
Plenty of ink has been spilled concerning the extraordinary success of 'The Avengers' but with "Phase 2" of Marvel's cinematic slate about to begin, we're going to be spilling even more. Although 'Iron Man 3' hasn't even hit theaters yet, all eyes are already on 2015, 'The Avengers 2' and writer/director Joss Whedon, who recently discussed the pressures of making the sequel to one of the biggest movies of all time.
As Marvel's movie empire continues to grow, they look to take over the small screen as well with their upcoming 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, which will follow the exploits of the secret spy agency seen in 'The Avengers.' However, the mysterious but still highly anticipated series has gone and gotten itself a new title and synopsis.
Fans of Joss Whedon's work looking forward to ABC and Marvel's forthcoming 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series were naturally curious to hear if any Whedonverse alums would make it into the show, even if Whedon only acted as executive producer going forward. Now, our first major Whedon alum has landed a top-secret role in the 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series, so find out what J. August Richards ('Angel's' Gunn) brings to the Marvel Universe inside!
Now that 'Game of Thrones' season 3 has begun its run, and 'The Walking Dead' has closed up shop until season 4, genre TV fans have plenty of new adventures to look forward to. ABC's 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' TV series has yet to recieve an official series order, but will likely debut this fall regardless, continuing the adventures of Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and a new team. Yet every Marvel fan still has one major question for the series: just how will Coulson return for 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' after the events of 'The Avengers'?
When 'Veronica Mars's Kickstarter movie soared past its goal of two million dollars yesterday, it was apparent that a new paradigm could be approaching for cult shows. Which led many (including us) to think about some of Joss Whedon's projects that have passionate fanbases but haven't always had big audiences. Whedon realized that as well, and so he gave an interview so he could address it, and not be bothered about it again -- at least for a while.
