As next week's Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 premiere creeps further and further out of the "Shadows," our renewed optimism for ABC's 'Avengers'-adjacent series only grows. Cue the latest clip from Tuesday's premiere, as new recruit Lucy Lawless goes dark on some rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and has a not-so-friendly encounter with Marvel supervillain The Absorbing Man!
Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe became a huge success, there were immediate imitators trying to follow that same model. From the 'Justice League' films to 'Amazing Spider-Man' and, heck, even the upcoming 'Star Wars' movies. It all seemed a bit much, to be honest. But, this latest news might take the cake (or donut?) when it comes to biting style. Dan Aykroyd, the only one involved with the original 'Ghostbusters' who seems to want to have anything to do with the new 'Ghostbusters' says he wants to relaunch the franchise following the Marvel "shared universe" strategy.
While we still don't have a 'Doctor Strange' star as Joaquin Phoenix tries to figure out if he really wants to make a superhero movie, we may be getting closer to an announcement as Marvel has set some other important dates for the film. Shooting on 'Doctor Strange' is scheduled to begin in May 2015 in London's Pinewood-Shepperton Studios and the film has snagged one of the previously announced Marvel release dates.
Much of the 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' speculation has fixated on the correlation between Tony Stark's JARVIS and enigmatic super-being The Vision, but it seems the Marvel TV branch may go even deeper into Jarvis' origins. Enter James D'Arcy, playing 'Agent Carter''s incarnation of the original Edwin Jarvis, butler to the Stark family!
Yesterday saw Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 unclassifying a few more photos from its September 23 premiere "Shadows," and while we've seen a few scant snippets of footage, are you ready for the first full clip? Find out who's investigating alien writing now, and what Marvel villain The Absorbing Man has to do with it in our first extended sneak peek from 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2!
Although we've known quite a bit about what to expect from 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' for a while now thanks to this thing called The Internet and to the rather excellent Marvel panel at Comic-Con 2014, tonight Marvel has finally revealed the official plot synopsis for the upcoming superhero super-sequel -- among the details you'll find a little nugget about Vision, a new character, but one with which fans will already be familiar.
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 has opened up quite a bit in recent weeks to show off both its 'Agent Carter' cameo and a few new villains, but things have been notably light on the H-word, specifically the Hydra presence the series worked so hard to conceal last season. Well, out of the "Shadows" and into the light, as new photos from the September 23 premiere put both Peggy Carter and Hydra back in action!
Marvel's upcoming 'Daredevil' Netflix series recently promised to unveil its horned hero at New York Comic-Con, but that hasn't stopped the 2015 superhero drama from adding to its ranks before the big show. 'The Leftovers' star Scott Glenn will play Marvel martial artist "Stick," best known as teacher and blind mentor to the man without fear, Charlie Cox's Matt Murdock.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' was a huge success this summer and it's currently the biggest movie of the year. People not only loved going to see it, they loved going to see it again and again, which surely has people excited for 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'. Unfortunately, that film isn't set to hit theaters until July 28, 2017, so you've got a while to wait. But, until then, there is some 'Guardians of the Galaxy' anime to tide you over.
We were disappointed to find Marvel's Comic-Con 2014 presence didn't extend to Netflix's upcoming 'Daredevil' series, but with October's New York Comic-Con practically taking place in the blind superhero's backyard, the Man Without Fear will finally come out of the shadows. Find out what 'Daredevil' will bring to New York Comic-Con 2014, alongside Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'!
