17 things you never knew about The Hunger Games

22 November 2014 1:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The beginning of the end is nigh for Hunger Games fans – Mockingjay: Part 1 is out in cinemas now, and for our money it's the best in the series yet.

Fans of Suzanne Collins' book trilogy and the Lionsgate adaptations are about as dedicated as they come, as we discovered earlier this month at the film's world premiere in London.

But we've set ourselves the challenge of uncovering a few tidbits that might not be widely known. Below are 17 things you probably never knew about The Hunger Games.

1. The three-fingered salute has become iconic for Hunger Games fans, first seen as a gesture of solidarity in District 12 and later adopted by Katniss as a revolutionary gesture. But its significance reached new levels this year when the salute was adopted as a form of silent resistance by protestors in Thailand this year, and subsequently banned by the military.

Heading to the small screen in early 2015, Agent Carter is the spinoff TV show for the supporting character from Captain America: The First Avenger. It will see fan favourite Hayley Atwell reprise her role, and Marvel recently released a teaser for the series, reminding us that when it comes to protecting the world, the best man for the job is actually a woman:

Lyndsy Fonseca nabs recurring role in Agent Carter

27 October 2014 1:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Lining up alongside Hayley Atwell’s Agent Carter will be Lyndsy Fonseca’s new character Angie…

Marvel Studio’s Agent Carter is expected to hit our screens in the mid-season gap of the vastly-improved Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s second season.

The show comes more hotly anticipated than most thanks to the love shown for the preceding Agent Carter one-shot which was initially released on the Iron Man 3 DVD, to much acclaim.

As well as a tease during Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 2’s first episode which confirmed the return of the Howling Commandos, and the recent confirmation of Dominic Cooper’s return, we now know a little more about the cast.

Lyndsy Fonseca - previously seen in Nikita, Kick-Ass and Hot Tub Time Machine - will play Angie, an aspiring actress and a friend to Peggy Carter. Whether Angie ends up getting involved with the espionage action remains to be seen. »

Lyndsy Fonseca Boards Marvel’s Agent Carter TV Series

25 October 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Former Nikita agent Lyndsy Fonseca has been recruited by Marvel to finalize the cast for the upcoming Agent Carter TV series set to debut during the Agents of Shield winter hiatus. Though Fonseca's resume, which also includes Kick-Ass, might indicate she'll be kicking Hydra butt alongside Hayley Atwell, that assumption  couldn't be further from the truth.

Instead, Fonseca will play an aspiring actress by the name  of Angie Martinelli. Like Peggy Carter, Martinelli is struggling to find her place as a woman in the post-war world of 1946, and she will befriend Carter as they lean on each other to overcome numerous obstacles.

Here's Marvel's official synopsis for Peggy Carter, based on a character that first appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger, in modern times in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and in the Season 2 premiere of Agents of Shield. She will also appear in next summer's Avengers: Age of Ultron, »
