Tony Stark confronts General Thunderbolt Ross
Tony Stark's hypercool presence is a welcome one - and it's neat that Ross's drink is Gamma green - but Marvel never followed up on this tag in future films and eventually had to make a special short to explain it. Incidentally, William Hurt will be back for Captain America: Civil War next year, where hopefully he won't punch any plot holes into the script. »
As the trailer for the freshman series revealed, Jaimie plays a woman the FBI finds naked, covered in tattoos and zipped up in a duffle bag in Times Square in the series premiere, with no memory of how she got there. Although Jane lacks any knowledge of who she is, her freshly inked tattoos carry clues that the FBI (including Sullivan Stapleton's agent Kurt Weller) begins to use to stop terrorist acts ...

The producers of The Player are well aware that the upcoming NBC drama is, well, not exactly realistic. But don’t say that like it’s a negative, thank you very much.
“Ridiculous is a valid artistic choice!” creator John Rogers (The Librarians, Leverage) happily replied after a critic threw out the adjective to describe the outré premise — a former military operative-turned-security expert (played by Strike Back‘s Philip Winchester) is drawn into a shady organization that gambles on crime.

NBC’s new thriller series Blindspot tells the story of an enigmatic tattooed woman who is found in a bag in Times Square, her back leading to a number of clues to crimes around the city. The Jane Doe, played by Jaimie Alexander, doesn’t know who she is or where she’s been. Oddly, one of the FBI agents who discovers her (Sullivan Stapleton) has his name stamped on her body. “It’s a bonkers premise,” admitted the series’ creator Martin Gero, who had been yearning to do a… »
“It’s in the bag — literally,” Jaimie Alexander said to the room full of press Thursday at the Television Critics’ Association summer press tour, garnering much laughter.
If you’ve seen any of NBC’s “Blindspot” promos, you know Alexander is referring to the opening scene of her new fall series, in which her Jane Doe character mysteriously lands inside of a duffel bag in the middle of Times Square with no memories and several inexplicable tattoos.
The concept of “Blindspot” is certainly unique, but creator Martin Gero, mega-producer Greg Berlanti and the cast and creative team still assured TCA reporters and critics that the drama will be vastly different from other procedurals and comparable TV properties.
“It’s a procedural for people who don’t like procedurals, and it’s a character drama for people who don’t like character dramas,” Gero said. “There is an overarching mythology to this show week-to-week. »

“It certainly does have some similarities with The Blacklist, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing, necessarily,” executive producer Martin Gero said Thursday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills. “We set an extraordinary amount of story from the opening frame of the show. We’ve done a tremendous amount of work to make sure we stay in business for a while. »
TVLine can exclusively reveal the official poster for the upcoming series, in which Alexander’s amnesiac emerges from a duffel bag in Times Square, only to have her many tattoos spark a mystery involving FBI Agent Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton, Strike Back).

In the image below, Jane Doe is tasked with “piecing together her past” alongside Weller, but judging by the amount of ink on her body, it won’t be easy. »
You know that awful nightmare people have about standing in a public place naked? That's Jane Doe's reality on Blindspot. NBC's highly anticipated new drama stars Thor's Jaimie Alexander as a woman who wakes up with no memory of who she is and her body covered in tattoos that also act as clues. Oh yeah, and she's found by the FBI in a a duffle bag in the middle of Times Square. Naked. We have your exclusive first look at what is definitely going to be one of the most talked-about scenes of the 2015 fall TV season, which actually shut down Times Square for a night. Seriously. "For the opening scene, we worked all night, putting on the tattoos," Alexander says. "We »
Tomorrow night at 10, Cinemax premieres the final season of "Strike Back," the rip-roaring buddy action drama about a pair of soldiers working for an elite British special forces unit. In the four seasons of its Cinemax incarnation (one season aired first in England, with an entirely different cast led by Richard Armitage), it's been a pleasure to watch: always smarter, more technically proficient, and just plain better than it ever needed to be. Now it's coming to an end, with a new season that kicks off in Thailand and features guest stars like Michelle Yeoh Dustin Clare, Adrian Paul and Will Yun Lee running into our returning heroes, straight-laced English soldier Michael Stonebridge (Philip Winchester) and his carousing American partner Damien Scott (Sullivan Stapleton). I've seen the first four episodes, and while there are a few narrative hiccups — some of them caused because production was disrupted and delayed by a »

To clarify, this article and the ones similar to it that will follow are not reviews of this fall/midseason’s pilots (because pilots can change a lot between now and when they broadcast). These are just my first impressions of the not-for-air network pilots that I have been able to screen. I last wrote about CBS’ Supergirl. Next up: NBC’s Blindspot, which premieres on Monday, Sept. 21, at 10 p.m. The Premise: A naked woman, covered head to toe with tattoos, awakens from inside a duffel bag dropped in the middle of Time Square, with no idea of who she is. The only person who seems to have any shot at figuring out the identity of this Jane Doe is FBI Agent Kurt Weller, whose name is tattooed onto the woman’s back, dragging him and his team into this ever-growing mystery.

After topping the worldwide box office last weekend with $114 million – including £4 million here in the UK, where it dethroned Minions – Marvel’s Ant-Man is set to face new competition from Pixels in the States this weekend, but with $133 million in the bank by close of play on Thursday the miniature superhero is performing on par with Captain America: The First Avenger and will be looking to crack the »

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

There's no such thing as a standalone movie in the Marvel cinematic universe, with even something such as Ant-Man having a few threads to tie it to the broader world that's being created on screen. In the case of Captain America: Civil War, there's no shortage of crossover, given that not only is it set to round off Chris Evans' Captain America trilogy, but that the roster of Avengers in it is hardly small. Tony Stark, Black Widow, Ant-Man, Black Panther and Spider-Man are all expected to turn up, for a start.
Thor: Raganarok is still a couple of years at this point, but you can bet the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be laying the groundwork for it long before that. Jaimie Alexander, who’s set to return as Sif in the sequel, indicates that next year’s Captain America: Civil War will tie into Thor: Ragnarok. More on […]

Jaimie Alexander’s Lady Sif has played an important supporting role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in 2011’s Thor, 2013’s Thor: The Dark World and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but it appears that her character may have an even bigger role in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok.
In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Alexander stated, “Marvel, I think on purpose, they don’t tell me certain things. Because they know I’ll be like, ‘So here’s what’s gonna happen.’ But I do know I will be in Thor 3 and that Sif will have a very pivotal part in that movie. I just can’t tell you what because I’ll get shot.”

You may recognize Jaimie Alexander's Asgardian warrior, Lady Sif, from a few scenes in both Thor and Thor: The Dark World. While she's been relegated to popping up in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for the time being, it looks like her character is really going to get in on the action coming Thor: Ragnarok. Alexander said this much when speaking with the L.A. Times, admitting that Marvel's generally reluctant to... Read More »

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the events of one movie can be keenly felt in another, from Tony Stark’s Avengers-induced Ptsd in Iron Man 3 to the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. (seen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier) in Avengers: Age of Ultron. And so, perhaps it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to hear from Jaimie Alexander, who plays Sif in the Thor movies, that Captain America: Civil War will start to lay the groundwork for Thor: Ragnarok.
Though Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder is not scheduled to make an appearance in Civil War, given that he was last seen returning to Asgard in order to make sense of visions shown to him by psychic Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) during Age of Ultron, the super-sized Marvel outing won’t completely pass over Thor and his own personal quest within the McU. »

We're still two years away from "Thor: Raganarok," the film which is expected to deliver most of the setup for Marvel's two-part "Avengers: Infinity War" saga. Before then though we're getting several films which could contain hints about where the next 'Thor' will be going.
Speaking with The Los Angeles Times, actress Jaimie Alexander revealed that one of those films will be next year's "Captain America: Civil War" - even though Chris Hemsworth's Thor will not be in 'Civil':
"Yeah, there's a lot of great stuff they've peppered in through 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,' 'The Avengers,' 'Captain' will have some stuff. There's just all kind of Easter eggs and hints, if you're really paying attention. They're so good at interweaving everything throughout those films."
Pressed for more details, Alexander demured on sharing more:
"Marvel, I think on purpose, they don't tell me certain things. »

Marvel's third phase has officially kicked off. Captain America: Civil War is next supercab off the rank and likely to end with the Marvelverse a much fractured and fragmented place. Somewhere within this heady and very well-populated brew, Jaimie Alexander, Aka Sif, told the La Times, will be a narrative tie-in with Thor: Ragnarok."There’s a lot of great stuff they’ve peppered in through Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Avengers [and] Captain [America: Civil War] will have some stuff,” Alexander tells the newspaper’s Hero Complex blog. "There's just all kind of Easter eggs and hints, if you’re really paying attention. They’re so good at interweaving everything throughout those films.”No major surprise there, perhaps, although with Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 and Doctor Strange to come before Thor 3, those tie-ins could potentially become a knotty business. Alexander took the fifth on how these possible Easter eggs might take shape ("Marvel, »
