Book Review: 'Showrunners: The Art Of Running Of A TV Show' Takes A Look At A Misunderstood Job

19 September 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In Tara Bennett's book "Showrunners: The Art Of Running A TV Show," the job is variously described as being a dictator, a CEO or leading an army. And while we're now in the era of celebrity showrunners—Damon Lindelof ("Lost," "The Leftovers"), Matthew Weiner ("Mad Men"), Vince Gilligan ("Breaking Bad")—it's often forgotten how expansive the responsibilities that come with that position truly are. If you've ever wondered exactly how complicated the machinery is that drives your favorite show, or what the gig actually entails, Bennett's book—a companion piece to the forthcoming documentary directed by Des Doyle—is a slightly jumbled, but still interesting peek behind the curtain. With names like Joss Whedon, Jonathan Nolan, Terrence Winter, Damon Lindelof and more taking part, 'Showrunners' brings a broad spectrum of talent from shows both popular and niche, both successful and failed, to help define what that eleven letter word means. »

Get a First Look at the New Season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (Photo)

19 September 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

What a difference a year makes. When Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premiered last fall, the Marvel Universe had yet to be rocked by the fact that the secret agency had been infiltrated by spies - a shocker not revealed until the blockbuster movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier in April. But the ramifications of that infiltration have altered the course of the Joss Whedon-created ABC drama. And now, new art heralding the show's second season provides fans with some fresh insight into the new reality facing the agents now that their world has been turned upside down. 1. There's a new agent in town. »

Amber Heard Joins 'Magic Mike Xxl' & Liam Neeson Hangs For Joss Whedon-Penned 'Suspension'

19 September 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If you've perused our feature, The Lost, Forgotten & Undersung Projects Of Joss Whedon, you might recall "Suspension." It was a script the Marvel guru wrote on spec and sold way, way back in 1993 for $1 million, and as such it feels like a relic of the time. It's basically "Die Hard" on a bridge, with the story following Harry Monk, who is on his way back from spending 15 years in a New Jersey prison for shooting a cop, when he has to stop terrorists who have seized control of New York’s George Washington Bridge during a hellish traffic jam. And now it seems the movie has a star, someone who is no stranger to kicking the asses of bad dudes. “I’ve just signed up to do a film called 'Suspension,' hanging from a bridge in New York – the George Washington Bridge,” Neeson told Empire. And that's about all there is right now. »

Here.s What Hawkeye And Black Widow.s Hideous Baby Looks Like

16 September 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Have you ever wondered what Hawkeye and Black Widow.s baby would look like? Of course you have. Jeremy Renner and Scarlett Johansson are two preposterously good-looking people who sizzled with chemistry throughout Joss Whedon.s 2012 blockbuster, The Avengers. Well, here's your answer: Check out that ungodly image that Jeremy Renner recently uploaded to his Twitter account. When Renner unleashed the nauseating picture on his 81,000 followers, he did so alongside the caption: "Hawkeye and Widow? Widow and Hawkeye??? Hmmm. #iftheyhadababy #widow #hawkeye." There is just something unsettling and innately gross about seeing Renner as Clint Barton wearing what appears to be a mask of Scarlett Johansson.s Black Widow face. However, if you.re able to take your eyes away from the truly terrifying, yet oddly hypnotic, coagulation of two beautiful Avengers, then you.ll also realize that it gives us a pretty good look at Hawkeye.s attire for »

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Plot Details Don't Give Away Much

16 September 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Marvel and Disney have made available the official synopsis for Avengers: Age of Ultron and it doesn't give much away to someone like me that doesn't know anything about the comics, but I have to assume comic book readers can see between the lines. As much as I'm not all that interested in another film in which "the fate of the planet hangs in the balance", I have high hopes for this one. I think Joss Whedon is working with the best this "cinematic universe" has to offer, which is he gets to play with all the characters, which cleans up the issue of "Where is so-and-soc" right off the bat, though with the addition of so many new characters it will be interesting to see how he balances their screen time and how well we'll get to know them all.

Why Ant-Man Is Going To Play A Huge Role In Avengers 2

16 September 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

What's in a name? It's a question we often hear asked, and more often hear answered. In the case of a Marvel Studios film, a name is a lot of things. It's a promise of a very specific adventure that sets the tone and tells us who to expect to see on the big screen for the years to come. A title like The Avengers: Age Of Ultron promises all of that and then some in its title -- and once it dropped, there was one important link to Marvel comic history that fans assumed would fall into the "then some" category: the introduction of Ant-Man, and the creator of Ultron himself, Hank Pym. Unfortunately for some, this was denied by Age Of Ultron writer/director Joss Whedon from the beginning, as he stated that he was, "...crafting [his] own version of it where [Ultron's] origin comes more directly from »

Official Plot Details for ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

15 September 2014 8:28 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Today we’ve gotten the first official plot details on Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Marvel sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron. There isn’t much information in the plot summery that most people couldn’t surmise from the titular villain or other casting announcements, but at least it’s now official. The Avengers in 2012 ended up being one of the best blockbusters in years upon its release and became the third highest grossing film of all time, so it is probably safe to assume that the sequel could be even better and be a strong contender for biggest movie off all time when it kicks off summer next year, given the immense talent behind the film.

Ultron has been one of the biggest threats in Marvel comics since his creation in 1968 and given that James Spader is pretty incredible in just about everything he is in, the human hating robot »
