EDITORS NOTE: This story is an update from article posted on July 3rd. 

The first official look of Georgina Haig as Elsa the snow queen from Disney’s Frozen in ABC’s Once Upon A Time is here. You’d think with all the hoopla and presence Frozen has on pop culture, that fans would be would welcome a live-action Elsa no matter who she be or what she look like. Well, you thought wrong. With comments like “I’ve seen better costumes at Comic Con” and “Where’s the boobs” going around the net, fans aren’t thrilled about it.  (more…)

TheQuest

In the quest (har har) to provide us with as much “geek friendly” entertainment as possible, a new type of series has been created for those who enjoy The Amazing Race just as much as they do D&D. Recently, the Execs. at ABC released the transcripts (which I’ve then translated into screenplay form below) of their brainstorming session regarding the new “Fantasy Reality” series The Quest. Fair warning, while the show might be “family-friendly”, the pow-wow in which it was originally conceived certainly was not.

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…)

Still, Marvel Studios, a subsidiary of Disney, is a building a massive entertainment empire that needs to expand or die (I guess). So while doing press for the new Captain America film, the topics of conversations have come to include a potential TV spin-off of the franchise, the one featuring Cap’s girl Friday from The First Avenger.

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. Adrian Pasdar, best known for playing the flying Congressman Nathan Petrelli on NBC’s Heroes, is joining another heroic universe in what might be a less than heroic role. Pasdar has been cast in the ABC series as Glenn Talbot, and if you know who that is, then you might start sweating if you’re a certain green-colored Avenger. (more…)
