Mindy Newell: Said The Joker To The Thief

23 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

“There are many here among us / Who feel that life is but a joke / But you and I we’ve been through that / And this is not our fate.” • Bob Dylan, All Along the Watchtower, 1967

“What’s it all about, Alfie?” • Burt Bacharach and Hal David

I’m writing this while listening to the soundtrack of the revival of South Pacific, which played at Lincoln Center here in NYC in 2008 and won eight Tony awards. It starred Kelli O’Hara as Nellie Forbush, Paulo Szot as Emile de Beque, and Matthew Morrison (Will Schuster on Glee) as Lt. Joseph Cable. The show, written by Richard Rodgers, Oscar Hammerstein II, and Joshua Logan, opened on Broadway in 1949, and is based on James Michener’s series of short stories about the Pacific theatre, Tales of the South Pacific, which was published in 1947, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize in 1948.

Emmy-winning talent Drea de Matteo has signed up for Marvel StudiosAgents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Lady Sif is returning too…

It’s been a while since Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. was on our screens, with the impressive Agent Carter mini-series bridging the gap magnificently (unless you live in the UK and can't actually watch it). In the meantime, Marvel’s flagship TV project has been adding some new faces, and confirming some returning ones.

Joining fellow newcomers such as Bladerunner star Edward James Olmos and The Tomorrow People’s Luke Mitchell, Drea de Matteo has now joined the ranks of the comic book espionage drama. As you may already know, Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif will also be appearing in the show later this season, in a storyline that sees her with long-term memory loss and no knowledge of Thor or her mission.

Incoming talent Ms de Matteo will play Karla Faye Gideon, »

What Sundance Means To The Oscars, And Which Films From This Year's Fest Could Be Awards Season Players

4 February 2015 9:05 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Though it began as a more alternative festival than it perhaps is now, Sundance has, almost from the very beginning, been tied up with the Oscars. The 1986 festival saw Woody Allen’s “Hannah And Her Sisters” play ahead of its release a few months later: the film went on to win multiple Oscar nods, including Best Picture, and pick up trophies for Best Original Screenplay, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress. The film wasn’t an "official" Sundance picture, but it wasn’t long before films in competition at the festival were making an impact on the Oscar race; the following year, Edward James Olmos received a Best Actor nod for Sundance premiere “Stand And Deliver.” Two years later, “Sex Lies & Videotape” got a Screenplay nomination, while international movies “Four Weddings & A Funeral,” “Shine” and “The Full Monty” all screened at the festival before getting a Best Picture nod.

The Rough Edges of a Good Story are Sanded Off in Spare Parts

20 January 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

In 2004, four ambitious Hispanic high schoolers in Phoenix—three of them undocumented immigrants, all of them underdogs with limited resources and prospects—defeated MIT's brightest (and better-bankrolled) in an underwater-robotics competition. Already the subject of a documentary last year, Soul Surfer director Sean McNamara's family-friendly frivolity shoehorns the incredible true story into a formulaic Stand and Deliver knockoff with no rough edges and the production values of an after-school special. George Lopez certainly doesn't have the acting chops of an Edward James Olmos, but his sincerity resonates as the substitute teacher and former engineer who coaches the kids to victory, while Marisa Tomei and Jamie Lee Curtis phone in their re »

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Edward James Olmos Gives Some Cryptic Details On His Character

20 January 2015 6:35 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Every time a new cast member signs up to Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D, fans speculate on whether they'll turn out to be a character we know from the Marvel Comics universe or not. You can't really blame them; after all Mike Peterson became Deathlok, "the Doctor" became Mister Hyde, and Skye turned out to be his daughter, Quake -- and that may just be the tip of the iceberg. We recently found out that fan-favourite actor Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner, Dexter) is the latest addition to the cast, playing someone named Robert Gonzalez. Will he turn out to be an established Marvel character? Olmos didn't comment on that during his interview with Cbr but he definitely suggested there's a lot more to this mysterious fellow than we're currently aware. Apparently his casting came "out of the blue", but already being a big Marvel »

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Edward James Olmos Arrives On Set; Title Of Next Episode Revealed

15 January 2015 6:40 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Spoiler TV have discovered that when Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its midseason première on March 3rd, the title of its first ep. (season 2, episode 11) back will be "Aftershocks". This obviously has to do with the team dealing with the fallout of last year's eventful midseason finale, but it's also a reference to the new powers displayed by Skye Daisy Johnson (Chloe Bennet) after she emerged from her "Inhuman" cocoon as Quake. We also found out that Battlestar Galactica's Edward James Olmos had joined the cast of season 2 in a mysterious role, and here is a recent set snap of the actor taken by King-Na Wen.

‘Marvel Agent Carter’ Ep Mum on Crossovers, Stars Call Peggy ‘A True Feminist’

14 January 2015 5:49 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The “Marvel Agent Carter” Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour panel on Wednesday afternoon raised quite a few questions, but executive producer Jeph Loeb refused to spill any secrets or spoilers about ABC’s newest comic book adaptation.

Loeb specifically wouldn’t comment on potential crossovers between ABC’s other Marvel show, “Agents of Shield” and “Carter.” Nor would he give anything away on a possible crossover with the upcoming “Avengers” film.

All Loeb would say on the former is, “It’s all connected.”

The CW Adds Another DC Comics Title With Animated, Online ‘Vixen’

12 January 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

The battle between DC and Marvel for mainstream superhero entertainment supremacy isn’t solely relegated to the confines of blockbusting major motion pictures. It’s playing out on television, too.

While ABC adds some Edward James Olmos to its Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D (that’s a Marvel title) and Disney preps a $200 million New York City-based production for four upcoming Netflix series starring uncanny individuals from the junior varsity team of the Marvel universe, Fox’s Gotham (a DC title) is raking in the ratings and the CW is adding another DC property to its ranks. The broadcast network that’s aleady home to two incredibly popular television iterations of DC comics - including the very well-liked Arrow and the even more very well-liked The Flash - will soon stream an animated version of Vixen on its online video incubator, CW Seed.

Revenge Recap: Relative Insanity

Jack Porter: Good father, great eye candy, terrible policeman.

The Hamptons’ second pluckiest rookie — Ben is obviously No. 1 — thought he was saving the day on Sunday’s Revenge, anonymously submitting the flash drive containing Malcolm Black’s criminal exploits to the police, but it turns out he only made things worse. Much worse.

Malcolm was released due to “lack of evidence,” which further fueled his rage — rage that he then directed towards Emily, whom he now knows to be Amanda Clarke. Two tranquilizer shots brought Em and Victoria to their knees, while a menacing Malcolm stood over them. (“Night night” has never sounded so terrifying. »

Edward James Olmos Boards Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

9 January 2015 3:42 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

"What awaits us out there is what troubles me," Edward James Olmos in his role as Battlestar Galactica's sage but increasingly troubled Admiral Adama. That brow should prepare for further furrowing with the veteran Battlestar and Blade Runner actor signing up for a recurring role in Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.. No word yet on whether he'll be on the side of the angels or doing the dark biding of Hydra, but Marvel has at least offered up his character name.“Edward James Olmos brings an amazing gravitas to any role he inhabits, something we knew we needed for Robert Gonzales,” said executive producer Jeph Loeb. “When Olmos first appears on our series, everyone will have to take notice – including our favourite Agents.” The arrival of Olmos's Gonzales will, reveals the official Marvel press release, have “massive repercussions for Director Coulson and his team".
