“Not agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., just agents of… nothing”

With last week’s episode showing that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. can hold the weight of being the MCU tie-in that we all wanted it to be, this episode asked the question of “Can they keep it up?”  While the answer to that may have been obvious to most viewers, we’ve definitely got an idea of what we can expect from here on out.

Just when you thought he was out…they drag him back in! Nathan Fillion has been a go-to fan favorite when anyone speculates about casting in Marvel or DC movies. He was considered by the Internet as the shoe in choice for Edgar Wright‘s Ant-Man and was a top five likely for Green Lantern before Ryan Reynolds got the role. Now he’s hinting that he may finally have a Marvel comic book movie role. (more…)

New Iron Man Suit Concept Art For ‘Avengers 2′ Revealed… Are Those Nipples?

A bevy of set photos from the set of Joss Whedon’s sequel to The Avengers have been hitting the interwebz lately. I’m actually surprised Whedon hasn’t locked down the set to keep costume reveals of Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver and Ultron a secret. One of the more recent candid set shots showed Tony Stark’s (aka Iron Man’s) latest armor; which is a variation of the mustard/ketchup suit from Iron Man 3 just %30 less mustard. You know, of course, this isn’t going to be the only suit Stark is gonna don, right? Well, a new piece of concept art just leaked and this latest suit is by far the coolest. Sans the nipples of course? That’s right, I said nipples. (more…)

Why Is Joss Whedon Apologizing to South Korea?

Has a Hollywood production ever come to your town? If it has, then you know what a massive inconvenience it is. Oh sure, it’s cool to think you might bump into a celeb or some how find yourself on camera (sorry, not gonna happen) but that excitement ends the moment you realize the production interferes with your commute. Roadways are often blocked with camera crews, food/equipment trucks and trailers… and they stay there for days on end. You shall not pass, do not pass go do not collect two hundred dollars. Ugh, and then you got the people who flock the scene watching what’s going on, taking pictures and just further gumming up the joint. It’s really a gigantic pain in the ass to the locals who gotta make life through the area, and the local businesses who can’t get their customers. Anyway, that’s what’s about to happen to the people of South Korea as Joss Whedon and crew bring The Avengers: Age of Ultron to Seoul. (more…)

Another ‘Angel’ Alum Coming to ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ as Coulson’s [SPOILER]

Part of the fun of Joss Whedon‘s adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing was seeing the Whedon repertory players – gathered from BuffyAngel, FireflyDollhouse and The Avengers – put on a Shakespeare play. Whedon breeds a lot of loyalty, and that’s extended to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. right from the start with J. August Richards in the role we’ve come to know as Deathlok, for example. Now comes news that one of Richards’ co-stars from Angel is joining the show, and they have a mysterious, and potentially spoilery, connection to Coulson’s past. (more…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ – Episode 15 – “Yes Men”

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review- 15 - Yes Men

“At least we’re in the dark together.”

This week on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we pick up right where we left off with last week’s after-credits scene. Lorelei is done with the newlywed groom that she stole from his bride, and is moving on to building her army. Hot on her trail, however, is the lovely Asgardian warrior Lady Sif, who’s come to Earth to bring the seducing sorceress back to their home planet for her crimes across the realms. (more…)
