The Marvel Directors Club – Their Best Films

24 minutes ago | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Marvel are continuing to attract plaudits for looking beyond the conventional and predictable when selecting directors for their films. Whether recruiting directors from a predominantly small screen background, or those with prestigious Shakespearean adaptations on their CV, or those with left-field cult work in their recent past, it continues to work to great effect. As much of a shame as it is to see Edgar Wright move on from Ant-Man, he has been replaced with just as interesting a director in Peyton Reed, who has Yes Man, The Break-Up and TV’s The Weird Al Show on his resume.

What Marvel seem to appreciate is that a track record as a really good director is worth a lot more than a track record with big budgets, special effects or comic brook properties. Indeed, some really smart thinking seems to be going into tracing a thread from some of the thematic »

First Agents of Shield Season 2 Promo Wants to Save You

21 hours ago | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Dang, didn’t ABC’s “Agents of Shield” just wrapped up its touch-and-go first season a few months ago? Apparently it’s been a while, because the second season is already prepping to save the world at the end of this month. Go figure. Check out the first official promo spot for the upcoming second season, which features the former agents of Shield (ex-agents of Shield? agents of ex-shield?) still doing their very best to save the world, whether we know we need saving or not. Glad to see they haven’t dumped Brett Dalton’s Grant Ward completely. After the trail of bodies the guy left behind in his wake, it’ll be interesting to see how they redeem him. And yes, that’s coming. Look, this is from that Joss Whedon guy and his peeps. They’ve been known to turn bad guys into good guys. They pretty »

Agent Carter: Chad Michael Murray and Enver Gjokaj join cast

31 August 2014 10:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Marvel’s Agent Carter has added Dollhouse and One Tree Hill actors to cast...

It’s fair to say that Agent Carter is a fairly exciting proposition for followers of Marvel Studios. Based on the hugely enjoyable One Shot of the same name, the ABC show will follow Hayley Atwell’s Agent Carter in the years while Steve Rogers was doing time as a capcicle.

Now, we’ve got some confirmation as to who will be joining Atwell in the cast. First up, we know that Chad Michael Murray of One Tree Hill fame will play Agent Jack Tompson. Secondly, Enver Gjokaj (who played Victor in Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse) has been confirmed to play Agent Daniel Sousa.

Little is known about the characters, other than they will be joining Agent Carter in the pre-s.H.I.E.L.D. spy agency known as the Strategic Scientific Reserve.

10 Weirdest Storylines In The Whedonverse

31 August 2014 2:17 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WB

Before Joss Whedon was the undisputed king of geekdom, responsible for making an Avengers film not just possible but awesome to the nth degree and finally proving that the Incredible Hulk could actually work on the silver screen, he worked on a couple of TV shows that you might have heard of.

Well, “worked on” is a bit of an understatement, much like “TV shows”. What he actually did was create a number of groundbreaking cultural phenomena that still have a huge impact on the pop cultural landscape even though they’ve been off the air for a decade or more. And, er, Dollhouse.

These series – Buffy the Vampire Slayer, spin-off Angel, the cancelled-too-soon Firefly and to a lesser extent the aforementioned Dollhouse – were full of Whedon’s trademark humour, snappy dialogue, pathos and explorations of topics including but not nearly limited to existentialism, gender, isolation, makeshift families, misogyny and, »

Exclusive excerpt from Showrunners: The Art of Running A TV Show

30 August 2014 2:46 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This coming week, Titan Books is set to release Showrunners: The Art of Running A TV Show, Tara Bennett’s companion book to the upcoming documentary Showrunners, the ultimate insider’s guide to creating and running a hit show which includes legends such as Joss Whedon, Damon Lindelof, Ronald D.Moore, Jane Espenson, Terence Winter, Kurt Sutter, Janet Tamaro and Bill Prady. Here’s an exclusive excerpt from the book, which hits shelves on September 5th…

With the industry in such flux, writers are also trying to navigate the best paths for their creative careers. Is broadcast in too much disarray to invest? Is cable the right fit for future development? Maybe TV needs to get its act together, and film is the place to hang out for a while? All showrunners are mulling these options, and more, as they think about what their personal futures hold.

Exploring the Treatment of Women in Video Games

29 August 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't really play video games any longer unless you count "Candy Crush". When it comes to next gen gaming systemsm in the past I've played "Uncharted", a little "Call of Duty, but mostly games such as "Tiger Woods Golf" and "Gran Turismo" so my experience with what is being discussed in the following videos is essentially zero, but it's rather damning stuff when it comes to the portrayal of women in video games. The videos presented here use a range of games to make the case women are most frequently portrayed as overtly sexual and brutalized side characters, included only to have violence done upon them either for the sake of creating a seedy atmosphere or to give the gamer something to do. Therefore, the characters are more or less props rather than actual characters. Considering most of these games feature a male protagonist and there are very few »

Marvel's Agent Carter Casts Ally and Antagonist

29 August 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here’s some good news for everyone looking forward to Marvel’s Agent Carter series. The studio’s second foray into primetime television looks really promising — it’s a kicky period piece with some great talent attached to it — but we don’t actually know much about it. They didn’t shoot a pilot (the Agent Carter Marvel One-Shot stood in for that), and as of San Diego Comic-Con, they hadn’t written any scripts. All we really know is that Hayley Atwell is returning to the role, and it is set in the immediate aftermath of World War 2 (and Steve Rogers' "death") and focuses on the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the titular agent’s struggles as a badass woman in a male-dominated industry.

But today Marvel has made two casting announcements, one fantastic, and one kind of meh. On the fantastic front, »

Update: Enver Gjokaj & Chad Michael Murray Join Agent Carter

29 August 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

After appearing as "young cop" in The Avengers, Enver Gjokaj will return to the Marvel Universe, this time with a much larger role in the upcoming Agent Carter tv series. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gjokaj will play Agent Daniel Sousa, who "will meet Carter while she takes on a new role at the pre-shield Strategic Scientific Reserve in New York City." Apparently the show will be set seven years after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger, and will focus on Peggy Carter as she struggles to adapt to life after losing Steve Rogers, all the while carrying out "secret missions" for Howard Stark. Gjokai is best known for playing Victor in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse, but he's also appeared in the likes of The Walking Dead, Dexter and Witches of East End.

Jeremy Renner reveals Hawkeye’s fate in Avengers: Age of Ultron

28 August 2014 11:28 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ever since Joss Whedon announced that one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes may not make it out of Avengers: Age of Ultron alive, fans have speculated that Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye would be the one to bite the dust. Out of the superhero team, Hawkeye’s been given the shortest shrift and the least amount of both screentime and character development, so killing him off wouldn’t really affect the larger McU that killing someone like Tony Stark or Captain America would.

Renner recently appeared on Larry King Live, and was asked point blank if he would die in Age of Ultron. His answer?

“No no. No, I don’t die. I think they want to keep [characters] around for a while.”

This jives well with Renner’s recent comments about Hawkeye possibility showing up in Captain America 3. Obviously, it could also be a case of misdirection, as the actor would »

Now with sleeves: Check out Hawkeye's new look in 'Avengers: Age of Ultron'

28 August 2014 8:07 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) The "Age of Ultron" will soon be upon us, and Clint Barton is armoring up accordingly. Empire has a high-res look at Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in "Avengers: Age of Ultron," depicting the eagle-eyed archer’s new costume. The big news: sleeves! It’s much more of a superhero uniform than what Hawkeye wore in his first "Avengers" tour of duty, but alas, still no mask. In the same feature, director Joss Whedon gives new details about what to expect from his follow-up to "The Avengers," and what he has planned for the titular robot menace. “It’s more epic and in other ways it’s more noirish and suspect and devious and specific,” he said. “Ultron, he’s got a touch of the apocalypse in him.” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige adds, “Ultron was the villain Joss wanted, from midway through production on the first film, to have serious repercussions for the Avengers. »

'Jericho' wins HitFix's first Uncanceled Showdown

28 August 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Even though ratings were only tepid after its first resurrection by CBS, "Jericho" has won HitFix's first Uncanceled Showdown as the series fans would most like to see get a second (or, in this case, third) chance on air. After three weeks of voting, which saw over 900,000 votes cast, "Jericho" had no trouble conquering "Almost Human" in the final round and claiming our crown. The result had, we confess, been a bit of a foregone conclusion after "Jericho" pulled off its stunning quarterfinals upset over presumptive winner "Firefly" on the Multi-Season Arcs bracket. In the final, "Jericho" scored a whopping 86 percent of the vote again "Almost Human," which Fox cancelled this spring after 13 episodes.  Although "Jericho" hasn't aired new episodes since March of 2008, the show's dedicated fanbase remains mobilized after 2007's now-legendary nut-generated push which caused CBS to reconsider its initial cancellation. CW repeats, plus two "seasons" in comic book »
