When last we left Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a war between S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Inhumans was averted, but not before a few Terrigen crystals fell into the ocean, were ingested by fish that were then taken from the sea by fisherman and turned into a variety of fish products. I wonder what happens now? If you said random people emerging with Inhuman powers, you’re either a genius, or you’ve see the first five minutes of the season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The new season begins in full this coming Tuesday, but Marvel and ABC have released a pretty effective teaser for the season premiere. (more…)


It’s time to play the music. It’s time to light the lights! It’s time for some shameless cross-network self-promotion. The Muppets debuts later this month on ABC, and they’re trying to raise some awareness with a series of promos featuring actors from other popular ABC series because, you know, The Muppets need more brand recognition. Of course, the original Muppet Show was well known for its celebrity guest appearances, so why not take advantage of that legacy through the lens of corporate synergy? So here are the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational, corporatational, promos possible for the all new Muppet show. (more…)


Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. began life as a meditation on what it’s like for ordinary people to be surrounded by a world where the extraordinary is possible, but the upcoming season seems to want to turn all that on its head. For season three, the question is how can the ordinary cope when they’re suddenly extraordinary? ABC has released a 30-second promo for the upcoming new season of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will explore how Coulson and his ragtag crew of world police men and women will help the emerging Inhuman community as they join a world that will likely fear and hate them.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has sort of been the red-headed stepchild of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a while. During season one, the series was stuck in neutral as the calender clicked down to the release of Captain America: The Winter Solider, and in season two, Coulson and the gang played a key role in Avengers: Age of Ultron that went unacknowledged in the big screen adventure in what should have been one of their finest hours. Is all that about to change? Might the Agents soon take their rightful place in the MCU (there is a comic book based on the characters now after all) with this season’s adventure? Let’s give a hint with one word: Inhuman. (more…)


Strange things happen at SDCC and this year is no different. Gather a group of actors that have been working and practically living together for a movie or television series, put them in the same room while they wait for the next appearance and goofy things will happen. This time around the cast of ABC and Marvel‘s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. had just a little too much time on their hands and we are all the better for it. Why? Because Clark Gregg decided to go full Agent Carter. (more…)

Last week’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. basically spent the last 10 minutes of the episode teasing Avengers: Age of Ultron, from Coulson’s (Clark Gregg) passing along the discovery of Baron von Strucker’s secret base to Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) to Raina’s (Ruth Negga) vision of metal death raining from the sky. This is not a new development, Captain America: The Winter Soldier was teased in the S.H.I.E.L.D. episode aired immediately before its release, and everyone agrees that the overall effect on the show was positive. Will lightning strike twice? Will the fallout from Ultron mean another shake-up for S.H.I.E.L.D.? We will likely find out tomorrow night, as one Marvel executive seems to confirm that fans should stay tuned. (more…)


One of the most poignant moments of 2012’s The Avengers was when everyman S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson played by Clark Gregg was killed in action while trying to stop Loki’s escape. It’s pivitol because Coulson’s death glavanized the team to put aside their own damage and fight the good fight to defeat Loki and his alien army; it was a bittersweet moment, but it defined what it mean to be an Avenger. And then ABC was looking to make a series called Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and it needed an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. to lead them, so Gregg got the call and Coulson came back from the dead. Naturally, the guy that killed Coulson in the first place, wasn’t pleased. (more…)


The second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been so much improved over the first season that we barely even noticed that a fairly important player from that initial series has been missing and largely unmentioned in the first 15 episodes of year two. That all changed last night when Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) found themselves in a jam and were forced to ask an old friend for help. The secret was kept pretty good, and we’ll keep it till after the jump just in case you haven’t watched the episode yet, but for fans of the Joss Whedon repertoire of players, it was a very welcome reprise indeed for the man who basically got the series going.

Before he was the Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. on the weekly adventures of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Phil Coulson was the guy that kept popping up around the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the everyman that made contact with all of the Avengers before they became Avengers. Everybody liked Coulson, which is why it was such a gut punch when Loki killed him in the first Avengers movie. Of course, the popularity of the character, and the actor who portrays him, Clark Gregg, led to his resurrection on TV, and a transfer to the comic books and the regular Marvel Four-Color Universe. But the question on a lot of people’s mind is whether or not Coulson might be back to lend the Avengers a hand in the upcoming sequel Agent of Ultron? And according to rumor control, he might be.
