Don’t mess with Agent Carter — she's tough, she's determined, and she'll look positively flawless while kicking any man's butt.
After only three episodes, fans everywhere have already fallen head over heels for Marvel's Agent Carter. Not only are we obsessed with the adrenaline-pumping plot and action-packed twists, the ABC drama's leading lady Hayley Atwell is finally giving us the kickass Marvel heroine we've been impatiently waiting for.
Luckily when ETonline sat down with stars Atwell and James D'Arcy, they confirmed that the series is only going to get better and better from here on out. Plus, they revealed that it only takes three things — the perfect shade of red lipstick, killer high-heels, and a good hat — for any gal to become a badass secret agent like Peggy.
Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters have two of the most challenging (yet enviable) jobs in Hollywood, serving as showrunners on ABC’s “Agent Carter” and “Resurrection,” two high-concept dramas with vocal fanbases and — following the breakout success of “Resurrection” and the blockbuster track record of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe — plenty of scrutiny.
If they’re feeling the pressure, you wouldn’t know it to talk with the accomplished pair, who sat down with Variety for a gregarious discussion about their professional partnership of 16 years, the experience of playing in the Marvel sandbox, and what’s ahead for “Agent Carter,” as Hayley Atwell’s titular heroine delves deeper into a web of conspiracies and secrets that may leave her feeling betrayed by those she trusts most, as the below preview from the Jan. 27 episode illustrates.

After much anticipation, the first full-length look at director Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot is finally here, and it's already apparent that the film will have a different look and feel than its 2005 predecessor. Most notably, rather than starring celebrity heavy-hitters like Jessica Alba and Chris Evans, Trank's version features a group of young, up-and-coming actors known for their indie work. Making up the super hero team is Miles Teller as Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm/The Human Torch, and Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm/The Thing. Teller recently starred in the Academy Award Best Picture nominee, "Whiplash," an indie favorite where his co-star, J.K. Simmons, is sweeping the awards race. Jordan rose to fame after a breakout performance in "Fruitvale Station," which debuted at Sundance in 2013. Bell is fresh off a supporting role in the South Korean hit, »

It's clobberin' time!O.K., so The Thing doesn't actually say his famous catchphrase in this first trailer for "Fantastic Four" ... and that's probably a good thing.This reboot is clearly more serious than the Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis, Chris Evans and Ioan Gruffudd films from 2005 and 2007, this time with Kate Mara, Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell stepping into the supersuits.Director Josh Trank opened up about the film with Collider, saying this new version will "fall in line more with a Cronenberg-ian science fiction tale of something horrible happening to your body and [it] transforming out of control," a la "The Fly."The trailer doesn't do much to explain the plot, but Trank says you can expect a "modern telling" of how the four main characters got their superpowers. And speaking of those powers, we gotta say, they look pretty cool in the brief glimpses we see above. »

There has been much speculation surrounding the movie and the lack of news coming out of the set, but all worries have been cast aside now that we’re getting our first look at the world of the Fantastic Four in this teaser. And we have to say we’re pleasantly pleased with the tone and mood Trank has set up for his re-imagining of the Marvel team.
Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, and Jamie Bell star as the titular foursome who are physically transformed after they teleport to an alternate universe where untold dangers await them. With their lives and physical nature irreversibly shaken, the four must learn to work together as a team to save Earth from a friend-turned-enemy.
Judging from this footage, we’re going »

The teaser for the reboot of the Fantastic Four series is here! And the first official look at the film shows a very different (and darker) version of the original live adaptation that help made Chris Evans a star.
In the new series, Michael B. Jordan takes on the role of Johnny Storm (a.k.a Human Torch). He and his That Awkward Moment co-star, Miles Teller, who plays Mr. Fantastic, are bringing a new vibe to the franchise.
Rounding out the team are Kata Mara as Sue Storm (a.k.a. Invisible Woman) and Jamie Bell as The Thing.
While it’s not confirmed, the new film looks to take place in the same universe as the X-Men franchise. However, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg refuted that idea. What is clear is that the new film directed by Josh Trank is more grounded in reality -- a trend »
The Fantastic Four trailer is here! A superhero project that some are eyeing rather dubiously has today revealed a first glimpse at the project.
Give it a watch below:
Gone are the bright colours and camp one-liners of the previous movies which starred Jessica Alba and Chris Evans, replaced with a more muted palette and serious tone. It feels somewhere between the trailer for Batman Begins and Interstellar.
Director Josh Trank, who also gave us Chronicle, has recently stated that he approached the project as though it were not a Superhero movie but instead a ‘hard science fiction’ film. He went on to say that he believes his version of the four friends who find themselves gifted with extraordinary powers has more in common with a David Cronenberg film; if this is the case we can’t wait to see Jamie Bell pull a Goldblum as he morphs into The Thing. »

Finally, the teaser trailer for Josh "Chronicle" Trank's new take on Fantastic Four you've been waiting for is here. It's definitely darker than the Chris Evans / Jessica Alba / Ioan Gruffudd / Michael Chiklis era, and it's bound to get you excited.Featuring Whiplash's Miles Teller as Reed Richards / Mr. Fantastic, House Of Cards' Kate Mara as Susan Storm / Invisible Woman, Fruitvale Station's Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm / Human Torch and Billy Elliot himself, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm / The Thing, the fourth live-action Fantastic Four film – you'd forgotten this one, hadn't you? – has Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes' Toby Kebbell as Victor Domashev / Doom.It’s a teaser in the grand tradition – its almost avowed dedication to keeping the big reveals at elongated arm’s length may leave you with more questions than answers – but its serious, sombre tone will almost certainly be nothing »
Fantastic Four has premiered its first trailer online.
The new Fantastic Four film is reportedly inspired by Marvel's Ultimate comic book series.
The movie will open in cinemas on August 6. Watch star Miles Teller discuss his involvement in the series below: »

Joss Whedon has admitted that it is "very doubtful" that he will direct Avengers: Infinity War.
The filmmaker told Empire that he is unlikely to return to the Marvel franchise for a while after this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron, as he is looking to focus on his own projects.
"I couldn't imagine doing this again," he said. "It's enormously hard, and it be, by then, a good five years since I created anything that was completely my own. So it's very doubtful that I would take on the two-part Infinity War movie that would eat up the next four years of my life."
He added: "I obviously still want to be a part of the Marvel Universe - I love these guys - but it ain't easy. This year has been more like running three shows than any year of my life. It is bonkers."

For us, comparing Chris Evans and Chris Pratt is like comparing sexy apples to sexy oranges. Except both the apple and orange play superheroes in Marvel movies. And both happen to be named Chris. Ok, so they have some things in common. Still, we’d never even consider picking one over the other.
But they did this to themselves.
“Well, well, well @prattprattpratt, looks like our teams are going into battle,” Chris Evans tweeted after the Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl. “For the next 2 weeks, you are not my friend, you are my enemy.” Then a wager was made:
@ChrisEvans Ok. Seahawks win you fly yourself to Seattle, visit @seattlechildren hospital as Captain America, waving the 12th man flag.

MovieCastingCall.org has put out a new casting call for Marvel's highly-anticipated Phase Three sequel Captain America: Civil War, which not only reveals that production will begin this April in Atlanta, Georgia, but seemingly confirms the villainous identity of Daniel Brühl's character, after he signed on to star in November. While it has always been suspected that Daniel Brühl is playing the villain, this casting call claims to reveal that the actor is playing Baron Zemo, a nefarious Hydra villain from the Civil War comics. In addition, the casting notice also has the first synopsis for Captain America: Civil War, which reads as follows.
"In Captain America: Civil War, billionaire Tony Stark is pitted against Captain America aka Steve Rogers in an ethical face-off over the U.S government's Superhuman Registration Act, which requires all super powered individuals to register their powers and report to S.H.I. »
We’ve already brought you the two Empire covers for Avengers: Age of Ultron, some images and a few notes from Joss Whedon talking about not directing Avengers: Infinity War and threatening to kill all of the Avengers. And now we bring you some notes from an interview with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who will be playing Quicksilver in the movie.
“He’s very agitated because everything runs too slowly for him,” he tells Empire via Cbm. “He’s quick at everything. He’s quick to lose his temper.”
“It’s more about Pietro and Wanda together, a yin/yang where he’s very physical and very protective of her and she’s very internal and always mothering him,” he says on his relationship with Scarlet Witch, played by fellow Godzilla star Elizabeth Olsen. “Pietro doesn’t fricking trust anybody.

Next year's Captain America: Civil War kicks off Marvel's nine-movie Phase Three, which will signal major changes within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. During the studio's October press event, Marvel confirmed the Civil War title, and that Robert Downey Jr. will star as Iron Man, alongside Chris Evans as Captain America and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther. The story will be based on the Civil War comics, where Tony Stark feuds with Steve Rogers over the Sueprhero Registration Act. The comic book essentially transformed Stark into a villain, as he found himself at odds with his fellow Avengers and even cloning Thor in the process. When asked about the possibility of playing a villain, in a new interview with Empire, Robert Downey Jr. had this to say, hinting that fans will start to see changes in his character in this year's Avengers: Age of Ultron.
