Following-up on last night’s awesome tie-in to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be welcoming back a senior member of the now-compromised world security organization for an episode late this month. True, it was reported early this week that Col. Nick Fury in the person of Samuel L. Jackson would be back for S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s season finale, but Maria Hill, and her portrayer, Cobie Smulders, will be back before the end of April. If that’s all you want to know, bail now because Winter Soldier and S.H.I.E.L.D. spoilers follow. (more…)

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns tonight on ABC promising some epic developments in regards to Deathlok, blue aliens, the identity of the Clairvoyant and other bread crumbs dropped throughout the series so far. There’s also the more pressing matter of the fact that the show hasn’t been picked-up yet for a second season yet, not an unusual situation for a Joss Whedon show, but a pretty bizarre predicament for the most heavily hyped new network show of the 2014/15 TV season. It’s pretty unlikely that S.H.I.E.L.D. won’t get a second season, circumstances at ABC are that dire, but a couple of the show’s key producers want you to know that they need a second season in order to make the show you want.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been pretty shy about treading new water in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and has seemed content to revel in what’s been done so far, but that seems to be changing, and has been changing, in recent episodes. Recently, the series unveiled the method of Coulson’s resurrection, a serum from a mysterious blue alien. The origin of the alien has been much discussed, and while nothing’s ever been confirmed, the consensus was that the alien was a member of the Kree Empire. Believe it or not internet, you were right. At least according to series star Chloe Bennet. (more…)

If you loved seeing Lorelei and Lady Sif duke it out on last night’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., not to mention the parade of other Marvel Comics characters that have been brought to life on the show weekly, then you’re going to love this news.

Agents of SHIELD hasn’t been the breakout hit everyone expected. Failing to continue drawing large audiences after its premiere, the series now turns to guest appearances to bolster its sagging popularity. Bill Paxton will soon guest star in a four episode arc and there’s even a requisite Stan Lee cameo, but it’ll take a goddess to truly make an impact on Agents of SHIELD.
