agents_of_shield_season_3

We’re still in the midst of Agent Carter’s adventure through 1947 L.A., but in just a few short weeks, we will be returning to the present and the ongoing adventures of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. When last we left S.H.I.E.L.D., Director Coulson and the gang effed up a HYDRA base where the deranged Gideon Malick (Powers Boothe) was trying to rescue a particularly evil Inhuman through a porthole to a far away planet. With Inhumans and other super-powers running amok, it seems that things are only going to get more intense for the S.H.I.E.L.D. gang, especially with some civil war also coming down the pipe. Here’s a preview… (more…)

Star Wars: Rebels first season wraps up on Monday with a very special guest star. Throughout this past season we’ve already welcomed great Star Wars luminaries like Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Frank Oz (Yoda), but this is huge. Everyone bow before the Dark Lord of the Sith because he’s arriving in animated form in the season finale of the Disney XD series. Considering that Rebels is set between the two trilogies, and since it was really only a matter of time before Kanan and the crew of the Ghost got too big to be merely a concern for some imperial goons and the creepy Inquisitor, it looks like the Emperor is sending in the big guns.

I may be in the minority here, but I am looking forward to seeing Terminator: Genisys this summer. We may have been burned twice before with James Cameron-less sequels to The Terminator, but I will say there’s potential here by going the nu-Trek route and rebooting the franchise with time travel. Plus, certain respect must be paid to Alan Taylor, who as a director definitely has a better track record than either Jonathan Mostow or McG (either before or since their Terminator outings). Speaking of Terminator, we’ve been given our first look at the new look for the T-800, in its skeletal form, for Genisys. (more…)

It’s been a source of tremendous controversy, but yes fans, Marvel Comics is wrapping up its run of Fantastic Four in 2015. Whether it’s a truly creative decision, or whether it’s spite on the part of Marvel to punish Twentieth Century Fox for holding on to the rights of the first family of superheroes with a death grip, but at this point the end of the Fantastic Four is nigh. For now, anyway. Marvel has released today a first look at the issue that kicks off this final (for now) Fantastic Four story arc. Naturally, it’s chock full of guest stars, including the “All New Captain America,” so you know this is going to be good (and long-lasting). (more…)

The next phase of Star Wars adventure begins this fall with Star Wars Rebels, a new animated series set in that galaxy far, far away that will air on Disney XD. Rebels represents the first big collaboration between Lucasfilm and Disney on new Wars stories that will be carried on through into other series, comics and books, culminating in next year’s release of Star Wars Episode VII. Last night, XD played a full seven minutes of the show to get people excited about Rebels‘ October premiere, and you know what? From what you see in this clip there’s every reason to get pretty darn excited. (more…)

Starting today, if you visit Disney theme parks in Florida and California, you’ll get a chance to see 17-minutes of footage from Marvel Studios’ upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. A lucky few have already been able to see about 9 minutes of GOTG footage, and the verdict so far is awesome! If you’re looking forward to¬†GOTG and are counting the days until August 1, you are going to be very pleased with that news. And if you’re one of those types that can’t wait to see the movie, there’s plenty of talk online as to what those 9 minutes contain. Spoilers follow, so if you want to stay fresh, I might advise you to overt your eyes now. (more…)

If you’re one of those people that just can’t wait to see the next big Marvel movie, you’re not alone. But if you have the means, and the will, then you can be one of the first to get an extended sneak peak at Guardians of the Galaxy. How can you get this sneak peak?! To answer your question, this is where corporate synergy comes into play. Starting on July 4th, if you visit either Disneyland in California or Disney World in Florida, you will be treated to said sneak peak of the film along with your park admission. So the catch is that you have to go to a theme park during the busy tourist season. Is it worth it to see large chunks of a movie you’ll be able to see just a month later anyway? As always, we report, you decide… (more…)

Got any plans for 2014? How about a wedding? Well, Marvel’s sent out the invitations, but something tells me you won’t want to stick around for the reception because things might get a little messy. As in a bloody mess! But why would Marvel Comics invite us to a wedding day massacre? Two words: red wedding. If Game of Thrones can do it, then so can Marvel. (more…)
