We’ve known for a while now that Joss Whedon will expand the roster of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for 2015′s Avengers: Age of Ultron, bringing in Godzilla duo Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as mutant ‘miracle’ twins Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, while Paul Bettany is also set to add to his voice work as Jarvis by bringing life to The Vision. During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the British actor has spoken a little about his new role in the eagerly-anticipated sequel…
“The [Vision] can do all sorts of things, but I’m not allowed to really talk about them and what we’re going to because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me. It’s very exciting for me but everything’s a double-edged sword because I was playing Jarvis for years. My job was »

(Cbr) Note: This post contains spoilers for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." Things are really heating up on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." as it barrels toward its season finale and pulls the show’s premise from the wreckage left by the final moments of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier." The connective tissue between the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s big and small screen exploits is stronger than ever before, and it’s about to get even stronger. Fresh off of a nine-year stint on the CBS sitcom "How I Met Your Mother," actress Cobie Smulders will return to television on April 29 as Maria Hill on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Fans last saw the character in the closing coda of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," where she reluctantly took a job in Stark Industries’ human resources department following S.H.I.E.L.D.’s dismantling. The show’s producers have already teased that »

Bob Saget is telling you how he really feels about the How I Met Your Mother series finale. The voice of future Ted was on Watch What Happens Live and predictably was asked about the controversial How I Met Your Mother series finale. "I loved it...I was there with my oldest daughter at the reading, so I knew what it was. I knew that Josh was narrating it. Some people said that he should have turned into me, but it wasn't The Matrix," Saget said. The finale saw Ted (Josh Radnor) finally finish telling his kids the story of how he met their now-deceased mother. With their blessing, he went after another woman he loved, Robin (Cobie Smulders), who was divorced from Barney (Neil Patrick »

Because gender equality is also awesome, "The Lego Movie 2" will have a bigger female presence, according to director Chris McKay. Beyond its prominent heroine Wildstyle (voiced by Elizabeth Banks), "The Lego Movie" features few female characters, although Wildstyle has multiple interactions with Unikitty (Alison Brie). The rest of the film's main characters are played by Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Will Ferrell and Liam Neeson, while Cobie Smulders voices Wonder Woman in a cameo role. "I’m not sure our movie passes the Bechdel test entirely and I think that it's important," McKay admitted to Daily Mail Online. "We have a lot of producers [who] were female who had concerns and we were always constantly saying to ourselves: 'Are we just a bunch of white guys sitting here making this movie from our own myopic point of view?'"

In the latest edition of “How many shows can Donal Logue appear in?” the busy actor will have a recurring role on Law & Order: Svu as the new Unit boss. He’ll be recurring for the rest of the season.
TV Land is reviving Candid Camera for a 10-episode summer run. Peter Funt, son of original Candid Camera host Allen Funt will host the new version which promises to be “daring but respectful”. I hope that means it’ll aim higher than the last reality TV-style revival of Candid Camera. Also, please bring back the theme song from the 70′s version of the series.

A second McU character is returning to Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the episode due to air on the 29th of April...
First things first, a public service announcement for anyone who likes to be surprised by stuff to vacate the premises. Here be spoilers.
Following the news that Samuel L. Jackson has filmed a cameo as Nick Fury in the Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. finale episode, due to air in May, comes confirmation that another McU character will be returning to the show.
Agent Maria Hill, played by Cobie Smulders and not seen since the pilot episode all the way back in September, is to appear in the April the 29th episode of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., entitled Nothing Personal.
TV Line promises that Hill will play a major role in the Hydra thread of the episode, and that "those who have clamoured for »
Some previous shots from Seoul saw Chris Evans' Steve Rogers in some precarious traffic-related situations, so from the above pics we can surmise that at some point he has to ditch his motorcycle, leaving Widow to commandeer it and come to his aid. Just an assumption of course, but it'd make sense given the snaps we've seen. Thanks to Unleash The Fanboy for the pics. Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Cobie Smulders, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, with Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, and James Spader. The film is set for release on May 1, 2015. »
(Cbr) This week's episode of "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." marked a huge shift in the series, directly affected by the events of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" -- and it looks like the connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe will only be strengthened in the show's final six episodes. TV Line reports that Cobie Smulders will return to "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." as Maria Hill during the series' April 29 episode for "a large role" with a possible Coulson/Hill team-up. The May sweeps episode marks the first time Smulders has appeared on the show since the pilot. The end of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" saw the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Maria Hill looking for new job opportunities at a very familiar company, and it's likely the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." episode will follow-up on her new career direction. That said, Smulders isn't the only Marvel Cinematic »

Having chased The Clairvoyant for the best part of a season, Agent Coulson and the gang finally uncovered the identity of their foe in last night’s episode of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which also happened to tie in to the events of Marvel’s latest Phase Two offering Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Viewers may have seen the last of Robin Scherbatsky – the Canadian former pop star played by Cobie Smulders on the long-running CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother – but that doesn’t mean that the actress is done with television altogether.
Smulders – who appeared as Agent Maria Hill in Marvel’s The Avengers and current box office champ Captain America: The Winter Soldier – brought the character over to the small screen with a brief appearance in the pilot episode of the studio’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Fans had speculated whether the character would play a role on the show, since Smulders was already a television fixture and a natural choice to help bridge the gap between the new ...

Cobie Smulders will reprise her role as Maria Hill on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. later this month, TVGuide.com has confirmed. But when Maria returns, she won't exactly be seeing eye-to-eye with her old buddy Coulson (Clark Gregg).
Now that S.H.I.E.L.D. has been disbanded, Maria has begun working for Tony Stark and is open to finding a new way to help the world. Coulson, on the other hand, has a bit more trouble letting go of the organization, even though it hasn't always been truthful with him.
