The moment ABC confirmed that Hayley Atwell would reprise her 'Agent Carter' role for a new series to accompany Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' potential crossover speculation began to flurry. We won't have to wait long, as it turns out Peggy Carter herself will pop up in the 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 premiere!
ScreenCrush’s Comic Strip is a weekly roundup of the hottest superhero movie/TV news items. From Marvel to DC and points in between, if it pertains to costumed comic book heroes, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis. This week, Dwayne Johnson makes 'Shazam' official, Paul Bettany's Vision is revealed, and Stan Lee's original 'Guardians of the Galaxy' cameo is dissected.
Will he? Won't he? Will he? There's been a lot of speculation about whether Robert Downey Jr. will star in a potential 'Iron Man 4' -- most of those teasing remarks coming from the actor himself -- but Downey recently spoke at TIFF 2014 and set the record straight.
These are a few of the potential villains who could rear their ugly heads in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2.' Some feel like sure things, others are longshots and some may be prove impossible for legal reasons, but each of them would give Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot enough conflict to sustain a two hour movie.
Recently Marvel offered us a few quick glimpses at its 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 additions, including Lucy Lawless' Isabelle Hartley and Brian Patrick Wade's Absorbing Man, but are you ready to meet the newest member of the team? Check out Marvel's Lance Hunter in a new photo from 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2, as well as new looks at Skye and a synopsis for the season!
As the unofficial mascot of the Marvel cinematic universe (he's pretty much Mickey Mouse to this corner of the Disney empire), Downey Jr.'s words and opinions feel like they carry a lot of weight. So when he chimes in with a comment that's essentially "Yeah, there really should be a female-led superhero movie, huh?", we can't help but feel slightly vindicated for wondering where the heck a 'Black Widow' or even a 'Captain Marvel' movie is.
There was a post-”princess movie” moment where Disney chased the “boy demographic.” It didnt' work out so well; Films like 'Atlantis' and 'Treasure Planet' came and went. Under the current Disney brand, 'Big Hero 6' isn't as aggressively alternative — not with Marvel as an in-house entity — but but the competition raises questions of what the Mouse House can bring to the table. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was basically a cartoon. Guardians of the Galaxy's five-character team had two fully CG characters. The Transformers moves are basically the pixel equivalent of a Stan Brakhage film. And now there's 'Big Hero 6,' a fully animated feature competing with live-action bombast. How will it stand out from the crowd? The Walt Disney legacy, and the idiosyncratic creative process that comes with it.
The desire for (and subsequent lack of) a female-led superhero movie is a hot topic that continues to be debated. Actually, there really isn't much debate; we're all pretty much in agreement that there should be a female-led superhero movie. Well, you can add one more voice to the chorus of people shouting loudly for a female Marvel movie as two-time Oscar-nominee Jessica Chastain took time out from her current promotional tour to support the notion of a Scarlett Johansson-led Black Widow movie.
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 has de-classified quite a bit in recent weeks, between new photos of the premiere and Marvel-ous additions to the cast, but it seems our 'Avengers'-adjacent series finally has its first new season 2 footage. Find out how the newest generation of 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' fare on their own with the first look at the September 23 premiere in motion!
If ever we thought Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' season 2 had been kept under wraps, forthcoming prequel one-shot adaptation 'Agent Carter' has seemed even more classified. Now, with production gearing up for a winter premiere, 'Agent Carter' has booked one new, and one familiar face to the Whedon and Marvel universes alike, adding Chad Michael Murray and 'Dollhouse' star Enver Gjokaj as its first new cast members.
