Whedon shot the former Shakespeare adaptation in secret in the confines of his own home, and the result is a masterpiece, with a version of Shakespeare’s play unlike any seen before. I was fortunate enough to see the world premiere of Much Ado About Nothing at Tiff last year – you can read our five-star review here – and cannot recommend it enough.
We were recently treated to a brilliant UK trailer. And with its release date just around the corner, we’ve got a great new image to share of Nathan Fillion and Tom Lenk, two of Whedon’s many frequent collaborators, as Dogberry and Verges.

The upcoming ABC drama could contain hints about what to expect from the comic company's big-screen blockbusters, Whedon told TV Fanatic.
"We're absolutely on top of all the movies," he said. "We never contradict [or] replicate - we will be flowing in between them, maybe occasionally we'll throw something in that foreshadows [or] echoes, but we're very much beholden to the Marvel cinematic universe."
"Everything has to push character forward, including action," Whedon affirmed. "We don't want 'spectacle' characters, we want... spectacle that addresses character. We always want the two to mix."
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air on Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC this fall.

ABC premiered the trailer for "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." during the network's upfronts presentation in New York and, unsurprisingly, it looks to be one of the best new shows in the fall TV line-up. During the upfronts presentation of his show, Joss Whedon opened up about what will make a series based on S.H.I.E.L.D. work for all audiences.
"Everything has to push 'character' forward, including action. We don't want 'spectacle' characters, we want some spectacle that addresses character. We always want the two to mix," Whedon said.
Also don't worry whether "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." will work with the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. That's one of the big draws of the show, and Whedon promises both the TV and film worlds will line up.

At 48, Molly Shannon is still the kind of woman who turns heads, with her mischievous grin and twinkling blue eyes. And, when she opens her mouth, she’s also the kind of woman who causes you to bust a gut. In short, she’s wildly funny. Shannon is perhaps best known for her six-year run on “Saturday Night Live,” where she brought to life such remarkable characters as 50-year-old Sally O’Malley between 1995 and 2001. But she’s also enjoyed a memorable presence on many other TV shows as well, appearing on everything from “Seinfeld” to “The Middle” to HBO’s “Enlightened.”
Born in 1964 in Shaker Heights, Ohio, Shannon endured a horrific tragedy early on that would shape the rest of her life. »

Marvel's plans to transition their popular Cinematic Universe to television will begin with The Avengers' director Joss Whedon's upcoming series based around the clandestine government agency S.H.I.E.L.D. The series is set to debut this September on ABC. Fresh from his role in the summer’s box office smash, Marvel's The Avengers, Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) returns to the worldwide law enforcement organization S.H.I.E.L.D. He puts together a small, highly trained, team of Agents to tackle the cases that haven’t been classified yet, the new, the strange and the unknown. That team consists of straight arrow Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton), an expert in combat and espionage; pilot and martial artist Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen); and brilliant if socially awkward scientists Agent Leo »

You've now seen the trailers and have been introduced to the characters of Joss Whedon's Agent's of S.H.I.E.L.D. It looks like it's going to be pretty damn fun TV series. The show's star Clark Gregg recently spoke to EW about the series, and how Agent Coulson fits into the epic mythology of the Marvel universe.
Agent Coulson represents the people who don’t have superpowers, the guys who actually can be killed — or at least seem to be and yet come back sometimes … Marvel has such a lock on how to do really incredibly visual effects and stunts that we’ve got stuff on our show that I just don’t think we’ve seen on TV before.
He then goes on to explain why we're going to love the show.

A resounding "noooooo!" ran out across the world when (spoiler alert?) Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) was viciously murdered in The Avengers. So when we found out that Phil Coulson would be resurrected for ABC's new superhero series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., we were ecstatic. But you know who was even more excited for Coulson's return? The man playing him! "I'll tell you, The Avengers was ruined for me when I died," he jokes with us. "I was like, 'wait a minute! This is awfully great stuff but I don't like this last scene!'" We didn't like it either. But he's back, and ready to kick some »

Since the trailers first started to land for The Avengers TV spin-off Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, speculation started to grow that J. August Richards was to be playing Luke Cage in the show after displaying a lot of the same powers as well as physical attributes. However the show's Executive Producer Jeffrey Bell has laid rest to those rumours in an interview with IGN.
When asked about Richards, Bell said, "he’s so good. He’s so good, because we were looking for this character M-- I almost said his name. It’s not the one people are talking about."
IGN do note in the interview that the "M" sound Bell made could be more of a "hmmm" as in he wasn't sure whether he could say or not.
He goes on to say that he is playing "an interesting Marvel character" and that may »

ABC's upfront presentation has already produced news about "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," most notably that the show is going to be great. Access Hollywood and IGN caught up with actors Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson), Ming-Na Wen (Agent May) and Elizabeth Henstridge (Agent Simmons), as well as producer Jeffrey Bell ("Angel"). The actors were all tight-lipped about the series, of course, but the video is still worth watching if only to see just how excited these actors are to enlist with S.H.I.E.L.D. Ming-Na's even busted out her boxing equipment!
"[J. August Richards] killed it! He's so good. He's so good, because we were looking for this character M-- I almost said his name. It's not the one people are talking about..."
