Agent Carter Season 1 Episode 4 Review – ‘The Blitzkrieg Button’

17 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Amy Richau reviews the fourth episode of Marvel’s Agent Carter

The fourth outing of Marvel’s Agent Carter is one of the series’ busiest episodes yet. It’s also the most entertaining episode so far.

Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) makes a lengthy appearance in The Blitzkrieg Button, as he is desperate to get one of his inventions out of Ssr and back into his hands. What that invention is and the importance of it is at the heart of the episode’s storyline. While I won’t spoil what the blitzkrieg button is, I will say when you find out you also get a fantastic verbal and non-verbal showdown between Stark and Agent Carter herself (Hayley Atwell).

It becomes clear is this episode (if it wasn’t already) that Peggy Carter is a lone hero. She’s a super hero but her costume isn’t a cape, it’s her gender. »

Agent Carter episode 4 review: The Blitzkrieg Button

21 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Vials of blood, broken necks and a seriously entertaining Howard Stark. That's just some of what this week's Agent Carter served up...

This review contains spoilers.

1.4 The Blitzkrieg Button

If you've been wondering why Dominic Cooper's Howard Stark isn't appearing in every episode, this week gives us a tacit admission: as a chronically vain one-liner spouting playboy, he's in danger of walking off with the series if he appears too much. It's not a surprise, really. He's essentially a one-man punchline, revelling in all the same things that make Peggy's life hard, and yet we love him for it. Pool table in a shipping container? How can we resist?

That said, the real problem with Stark's inclusion is that there isn't really space in the episode for him And Jarvis, so the latter was sidelined for the majority of the show. It's great to watch Atwell's comic timing play off Cooper's, »

Recap: ‘Agent Carter’ - Dottie Underwood is the real ‘Blitzkrieg Button’

23 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Four episodes in, Marvel’s feminist critique of post-war American history masquerading as a superhero action series is still kicking ass and taking names. I can’t remember the last time I’ve shouted in surprised delight so often at my television. The fact that a show set in 1946 is giving one of the most honest portrayals of the lived experiences of (white, middle class) women hopefully readjusts the bar for what audiences expect from other series. Women never need to be perfect, but they do need to be people. “The Blitzkrieg Button” hinges entirely on imperfect humans. Specifically Howard Stark and Peggy Carter’s relationship. I’ve always found it a sign of enormous respect that Howard sees Peggy as a person and not a potential conquest. But being a woman who is buddies with a marauding womanizer has blowback: in this case, Howard thinking he can waltz into Peggy’s life, »

Director Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four Gets A Slick First Trailer & Poster

27 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Watch the new Fantastic Four trailer.

The film stars Miles Teller as Reed Richards, Kate Mara as Sue Storm, Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, Jamie Bell as Ben Grimm and Toby Kebbell as Doctor Doom.

Fantastic Four, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.

The Fantastic Four was the first superhero team created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist/co-plotter Jack Kirby, who developed a collaborative approach to creating comics with this title that they would use from then on. As the first superhero team title produced by Marvel Comics, it formed a cornerstone of the company’s »

The First Teaser for Fantastic Four Has Finally Arrived

27 January 2015 6:32 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

For a while there, it seemed like maybe the Fantastic Four reboot was as imaginary as Stan Lee wished the Roger Corman version was. But here, at last, with barely more than six months left until its release, is our first teaser. Sorry if you want a lot of footage of the superhero quartet in action and using their powers or even showing off their powers, because this is still only a slight look at what we have to look forward to. Still, what’s here is pretty, um, fantastic. There’s voiceover narration from The Wire and House of Cards actor Reg E. Cathey, who plays Dr. Franklin Storm — father of Johnny and Sue. There are a mere hints at The Thing and Human Torch in transformed mode. Mostly, though, this is interestingly Interstellar-like in the story it’s teasing. If we didn’t know it was a superhero movie, I »

23 January 2015 1:02 PM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It’s an embarrassment of riches for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU), dear readers. Hot on the heels of last week’s examination of the Ant-Man teaser trailer, this week’s Trailer Trashin’ looks at what will probably be the biggest movie of summer 2015, Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Premise: With S.H.I.E.L.D. destroyed and the Avengers needing a hiatus from stopping threats, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) attempts to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program with Ultron (James Spader), a self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence.

Chiwetel Ejiofor May Star In Marvel’s 'Doctor Strange'

23 January 2015 6:17 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor is being courted by Marvel to take on an unspecified role in Doctor Strange. Ejiofor could join Benedict Cumberbatch, who is starring as the surgeon turned sorcerer supreme Stephen Strange, aka Doctor Strange.

Marvel had no comment as talks are said to be in the early stages.

The site also says that he could be taking on the villain role of the film but some of their sources have said that's not the case. The villain is likely to be classic bad guy Baron Karl Mordo, a sorcerer’s pupil whose next-in-line status is usurped by Doctor Strange, thus making him the physician’s fierce rival.

The film is based on the Marvel Comics character created by Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. Stephen Strange beset by demons controlled by apprentice sorcerer Karl Mordo, but was rescued by Mordo's mentor, »

LiveJournal Debuts Video Hosting, Comic Book Legend Stan Lee First To Upload

22 January 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

LiveJournal is getting into online video in a way which should please the site’s more visually-inclined users. The anonymity-supporting blogging platform introduced video hosting on January 22, 2015, and comic book legend Stan Lee was the first to upload a video using the new feature.

Before the video hosting feature was introduced, LiveJournal bloggers were able to embed videos from other sites (but they’d have to upload their own video content to sites like YouTube before they could link or embed to them). LiveJournal’s new native video hosting simplifies this process. The platform’s users can now upload a video directly to LiveJournal, share it with their friends, and easily embed it into their posts.

The first LiveJournal user to upload a video to his blog was Lee, creator of such comic book characters as Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the Fantastic Four. Lee’s video was about the final »

It was 75 Years Ago The Shadow hit the Comic Racks

21 January 2015 3:39 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Seventy-five years ago, The Shadow and Doc Savage made their four-color debut on January 21st, 1940 in Shadow Comics #1, which also featured the first comic book appearances of Nick Carter, Bill Barnes, Frank Merriwell, Iron Munro and a variety of other popular Street & Smith pulp characters.

With the possible exception of Walt Disney’S Comics & Stories, it is unlikely that any other comic magazine ever debuted with as many pre-proven famous characters. The Shadow had already starred in nearly 200 pulp novels and several films, while his weekly radio show had the highest audience ratings in daytime radio. Iron Munro was based on John W. Campbell’s novel The Mightiest Machine, one of the inspirations for Jerry Siegel’s Superman, and featured the exploits of a human born and raised under Jupiter’s high gravity who arrived on Earth to discover that his denser molecular structure gave him invulnerability, super strength and »
