We're still reeling from Marvel's bombshell announcement of four new Netflix original series for 'Daredevil,' 'Jessica Jones,' 'Iron Fist' and 'Luke Cage,' eventually forming their own miniseries 'The Defenders,' but questions will continue to pour in over the long wait until 2015. For instance, does Disney believe the heroes could still lead to their own films? What about the proposed 'Agent Carter' series?

Now that the hype surrounding Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' trailer has died down (who are we kidding, we're still watching it), the question remains for fans just who 'Angel' vet J. August Richards will be playing. The running rumor has Richards as Marvel hero-for-hire Luke Cage, with New Warrior "Rage" a close second, but has 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' executive producer Jeffrey Bell let Richards' true identity slip?
