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…)

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”

- 03-12-14Comics, Featured, Film, TV Posted by Brent Cook

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…)

RECAP/REVIEW: ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ – Episode 14 – “T.A.H.I.T.I.”

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Review- 14- T.A.H.I.T.I.

“They scratch my paint, I’m gonna be pissed.”

While the last episode was one of the show’s best, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. hasn’t aired a new episode in a month. There’s still a question of whether or not the gap halted the show’s momentum, but was the introduction of two new agents and a guest starring spot from Bill Paxton enough to keep the ball rolling?

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…)

Who among us has never spent an evening drinking with friends contemplating how wonderful it might be if Firefly came back to television? Even if Joss Whedon has moved on to create other worlds, some of those involved with the series, in front and behind the camera, still think there’s some television life left in the franchise.

It seems like with every scary bit of news we get about Batman Vs. Superman (seriously, just click that link and take your pick of all of the potentially good/likely bad/all around scary news), we get something reassuring from Marvel’s The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and this news is no different. If you’ve been wondering just how closely Age of Ultron is going to follow the comic book design of Scarlet Witch’s costume, then you’re in luck! See what Elizabeth Olsen had to say about her new threads after the jump! (more…)
