In a revelation that surprises only the three most gullible nerds on the planet, the showrunners of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have said that as the show progresses through its second season, it will eventually intersect with the doings of The Avengers in Avengers: Age of Ultron. This, in and of itself, is not a spoiler. S.H.I.E.L.D. has intersected twice before with the big screen Marvel adventures – Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier – so with Age of Ultron hitting theaters May 1, conveniently at the end of the show’s second season, it seemed only natural that Disney would parlay a show they own, on a network they own, to do cross-promotion with the new movie they own based on the characters they own. It all makes sense in the end. (more…)
*Insert Spoiler Warning Here. This is right were the second Spoiler Warning would have gone if we were going to put in another Spoiler Warning to warn those people who haven’t watched the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last night. I’d like to think it’s only a hand-full of busy parents, cave spelunkers, and the Amish, but we all know that our busy lives put a lot of us on different pages when it comes to when and how we watch our television shows. Suffice it to say that last night was an interesting episode and we saw what might be the last appearance of [REDACTED]. (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.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is dipping into the Asgardian pool once again with Jamie Alexander‘s upcoming appearance as Lady Sif. She’s been sent by Odin to hunt down Lorelei (Elana Satine), the deadly Asgardian seductress who’s up to no good on Earth. (more…)
Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog was judged by yours truly to be the nerdiest musical ever made. If you have not seen it, then look it up…NOW. It’s only about 45 minutes long–I’ll be here when you’re finished.
Aren’t you glad I made you do that? Want more? Of course you do. And while it’s old news that a sequel is in the works, there hasn’t been many updates from the filmmakers. Which is understandable, as Joss and Jed Whedon have been ridiculously busy as of late.
Follow the jump to read what Jed had to say to Entertainment Weekly about the further adventures of Nerddom’s favorite lovelorn evil scientist: (more…)
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.
Hang onto your badges Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fans, none other than Bill Paxton, the GAME-OVER man himself is joining the series for at least a four episode story arc. What character will Paxton be playing? (more…)
As most Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. viewers know (or, at least, should know), tonight’s episode will be based around the fall out from Thor: The Dark World, and such a crossover has led many to wonder, “What other tie-ins will we see?” Fortunately, Jed Whedon, Joss’ brother and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. executive producer, took to filling us in on what might be in the show’s future, which could include a cameo from a huge Marvel name. (more…)
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is produced by the creative trio of Joss Whedon, and husband and wife team Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen. Hot on the heels of the series premiere, THR has posted an interview with Jed and Maurissa discussing the series. One of the biggest tidbits to come out of that interview is the one big NO-NO word that no Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. can ever utter.
In all this hype leading up to the premiere of Agents of SHIELD – tonight at 8pm EST on ABC! – executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen have been giving all sorts of interviews. They gave one such interview today to The Hollywood Reporter, in fact. It’s full of all sorts of bits about their creative process, their expectations for SHIELD, and the trials of creating a superhero-less superhero show. It’s really great, go check it out.
But first! Let me draw your attention to this. THR, wisely, took the opportunity to get any info out of the pair about the much anticipated Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog sequel. What did they have to say?
Tancharoen: We wish we could be doing everything at the same time, but it’s always something that is in our hearts and always something we desperately want to do. But now Joss is away. He’s in London prepping, and we are here everyday consumed by this. But there are about six songs ready to go.
Whedon: In some form or another, it will exist. Obviously we’ve been saying that for a long time and it’s been slow going. But we never forget. It lives in our hearts.
Tancharoen: I will play Groupie #1 before you can call it Old Hag #1 (laughs).
Six songs, guys! That’s something, right!? Though I’ll admit, I don’t believe there’s any way in the forseeable future Whedon, his brother, Joss, or Tancharoen will find the time. And let’s not even imagine what the schedules of Neil Patrick Harris, Felicia Day (assuming her character would appear in a sequel), and Nathan Fillion are like!
Sheesh… more and more Dr. Horrible 2 sounds like a pipe dream, but what do you think? Will we see a sequel before we’re dead? Maybe they’ll just release the songs or even record a soundtrack only at some point?
