Jaimie Alexander has been going through some major hair changes as of late. First, back in February, the Thor: The Dark World actress chopped offher shoulder-length brunette tresses into a pixie cut. And now just two months later she has gone and dyed her short crop blond. Jaimie shared a pic of her new 'do, giving a shout out to the person behind her blond look, writing, "Big love to my beautifully talented friend @TraceyColorist #platinum" Both mane makeovers are apparently for her upcoming, untitled HBO series. At least that's what we gather from hints from the star and her celebrity colorist Tracey Cunningham, whose clients also include Jennifer Lopez, Emma Stone and Drew Barrymore. In »

If you are huge fans of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. this news might just bring a smile to your face!
It has been confirmed that Cobie Smulders will be returning to the TV series at the end of the month to reprise her role as Agent Maria Hill. She made a very special appearance in the pilot episode, but went off to film the final season of How I Met Your Mother. Not much has been confirmed about her storyline, but it is expected to be linked with her role in Marvel’s recent release Captain America: The Winter Solider.
Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. has seen numerous characters from the Marvel movies making a guest appearance, including Thor’s Jamie Alexander, and Nick Fury himself Samuel L. Jackson. The show’s regular stars are Ian De Caestecker, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennett and Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson. »

The peace-keeping organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. has been a constant throughout the Marvel cinematic universe, but after [Spoiler Alert!] Captain America: The Winter Soldier effectively blew S.H.I.E.L.D. to smithereens, what does that mean for Marvel's television show, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? We'll soon find out, but when Vulture ran into Samuel L. Jackson last week at the premiere of his wife's Broadway play A Raisin in the Sun, we had to ask whether he'd be filming another cameo as former S.H.I.E.L.D. head honcho Nick Fury. Laughing, he told us, "I did! Last week! I just shot the end-of-the-season show." He wouldn't reveal any details, however. "You're trying to get me fired and killed! I don't talk about Marvel's business. None of us do."Jackson has popped up on the ABC program before, as have Cobie Smulders as Maria Hill and Jaimie Alexander as Sif, and he said he appears at the discretion of »

Designers find inspiration in all sorts of things -- flowers, buildings, fluffy little clouds -- but what better source of inspiration than a carefully branded tie-in! This week "Project Runway: Under the Gunn" asks the remaining designers to find ideas in Marvel's varied cast of characters, such as Black Widow, Captain Marvel, Falcon, Hawkeye and more. Even better? Jaimie Alexander (Lady Sif in the "Thor" movies and "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.") is a guest judge. Get a taste of what's ahead in this clip before tuning in Thurs. at 9:00 p.m. Et on Lifetime. Of course, even cool superheroes may not be enough for some former fans of the show. After innovative designer Natalia Fedner was cut from the show, many felt judges Mondo and Anya were unfairly critical. What did you think? Are you over "Project Runway: Under the Gunn" or still watching? »

Even the showrunners of "Marvel's Agents of Shield" will admit that they had to work out some kinks early in the series' first season to turn it into the more streamlined and focused show it is today. Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon are close to completing Season 1 of Marvel's first TV series, and though Season 2 hasn't been announced, a pickup is likely.
Many freshman series have applied the lessons learned from Season 1 to Season 2, and come out the better for it. Tancharoen and Whedon explained to Zap2it on the show's PaleyFest red carpet what they plan on taking with them to a second season.
"Any new show has a big learning curve, just in terms of making sure everybody's making the same show," Whedon says. "Every different department, every actor, every director, the music, the costumes -- just making sure we're all sort of heading in the same direction, »
Considering how Thor: The Dark World made an impression on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., you wouldn’t be out of line to think the same might happen with the impending release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Agents of Shield made good use of its relation to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, incorporating elements of Iron Man 3 and even featuring Thor’s Jaimie Alexander as her character, Sif. I don’t know in what way Captain America will bleed into Shield, but I’m excited to see how it’s done. I’m hoping Falcon will make an appearance, but I think we would’ve heard something big like that by now. No, I think the crossover will be smaller and more story driven.
The show will return on Thursday, April 1, just days before Winter Soldier will be released in theaters. After that, Deadline reported the possibility of crossovers »

Yesterday, as a part of PaleyFest, there was a panel for "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.." Gregory Ellwood caught up with Ming-Na Wen at the event to talk about the show and its place in the larger Marvel universe. As you undoubtedly know, Marvel expanded its entertainment reach this past fall with the introduction of "S.H.I.E.L.D." on ABC and quite overtly the series ties into the larger Marvel cinematic universe (or McU, if you prefer) we've seen on the big screen. When "Thor: The Dark World" came out, there was a crossover episode; recently Jaimie Alexander just reprised her role as Lady Sif for the TV series; and now with "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" hitting theaters in less than two weeks, it is clear that we can expect to see more of these ties. In fact, as Ming-Na put it, »

Hollywood - It may have been a PaleyFest for ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," but there was a ton of Captain America swag being worn in the Dolby Theater Sunday afternoon. That was actually quite appropriate considering how much the events in "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," opening April 4, affect "MAoS." The television show has done its best to tie into the larger Marvel cinematic universe with one episode focusing on the repercussion of "Thor: The Dark World" in November, a very impressive guest appearance by Lady Sif (Jamie Alexander) earlier this month and a cameo by none other than Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in October. Things will become even more interesting after what transpires in Marvel's latest big screen effort. Enjoying the packed audience were stars Clark Gregg (Agent Phil Coulson), Ming-Na Wen (Agent Melinda May), Elizabeth Henstridge (Jemma Simmons), Iain De Caestecker (Leo Fitz), Brett Dalton (Agent »

More Marvel Cinematic Universe crossovers are in store next month as ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. heads into its final season 1 stretch with some added Marvel juice. The ABC superhero spinoff series returns to air Thursday, April 1 ahead of the Friday, April 4 theatrical debut of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Today’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. PaleyFest panelists hinted at Captain America crossovers with S.H.I.E.L.D., which will be back for seven episodes in a row starting April 8 culminating in the Season 1 finale, said exec producer Jeph Loeb. He danced around officially spilling on how the show will overlap with Captain America, but since they already welcomed Thor: The Dark World film co-star Jaimie Alexander on a ratings-lifting crossover episode following the events of that film earlier this month, “it wouldn’t surprise anyone if [events from] the movie you mentioned were to happen in the show we’re talking about, »

TheWrap writes that Miller is poised to play Kyle's wife, Taya, "who must raise his children while he's overseas fighting the enemy." Bradley Cooper is playing Kyle, a Seal who had the most confirmed kills in U.S. military history.
"American Sniper" is based on Kyle's memoir of the same name, which details both his experiences at home and in the military. Kyle's sniper status earned him a bounty on his head, and his multiple deployments abroad put a strain on his family life. He died last year after being shot by a fellow veteran.

Following Warner Bros.'s flirtation with Steven Spielberg, Clint Eastwood signed on last year to handle tragic true-life story American Sniper, which features Bradley Cooper in the lead. It would appear he has narrowed down a lead actress, with Sienna Miller in talks.According to The Wrap, the choice came down to between Miller and Thor’s Jaimie Alexander, while Kate Mara and Evangeline Lilly had both been considered before other jobs took them out of the running.Jason Hall has adapted Navy Seal Chris Kyle’s book, subtitled The Autobiography Of The Most Lethal Sniper In Us Military, which recorded Kyle’s career as a Texas-born shooter who notched the highest number of recorded kills for an American.

Ff Comic book movie fans still have their Underoos in a bunch over the casting of the title superheroes in Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot — Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara as Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan as Human Torch and Jamie Bell as the Thing — but at least they can rest easy knowing that a female actress won't be cast as Dr. Doom, as was rumored a few weeks ago. According to TheWrap, four male actors (with accents!) are on the short list to play the evil ruler of the fictional Eastern European nation of Latveria: Sam Riley (Maleficent), Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables), Toby Kebbell (The Counselor) and Domhnall Gleeson (Dredd). The Fantastic Four reboot is slated for a June 19, 2015, release.

According to The Wrap, Foxcatcher star Sienna Miller has landed the female lead in Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper, after beating out Thor‘s Jaimie Alexander. The actress will co-star with Bradley Cooper in the adaptation from Warner Bros., which follows a Navy Seal who “has the most confirmed sniper kills in U.S. military history.”
Before Eastwood took over, Steven Spielberg was attached to direct and at that point, Evangeline Lilly was said to be the frontrunner for the female lead role. When Clint came on board, he had his eye on Kate Mara. Due to her casting in Fantastic Four though, she couldn’t take the part and the race was then narrowed down to Alexander and Miller.
Penned by Jason Hall and set to go into production next month, the film will have Cooper playing the titular sniper and Miller starring as his wife. Based on the novel of the same name, »
