Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is currently on hiatus for the next few months, with the new series Marvel's Agent Carter taking over its Tuesday, 9 Pm time slot starting January 6 for an eight-episode run. During Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s two seasons, there have been several connections between the show and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including tie-ins to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, along with characters who have crossed over from the movies to TV, such as Coulson (Clark Gregg), Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders), Jasper Sitwell (Maximiliano Hernández) and Lady Sif (Jaimie Alexander). Earlier this week, Clark Gregg posted an intriguing comic book photo on his Facebook page, which may tease that Jeremy Renner's Hawkeye is set to make an appearance on the ABC series.
The image is taken from the Secret Avengers #10 comic, which was released in November, »
We heard earlier this month that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will somehow lead / tie in to Marvel’s hugely-anticipated May sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, but could Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton be a part of that? Well, Agent Coulson himself Clark Gregg may have just teased a Hawkeye appearance in the show, with the actor posting the following panel from Secret Avengers #10 to his Facebook page…
Should Hawkeye make a guest appearance, Jeremy Renner would be following in the footsteps of McU stars such as Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson and Jaimie Alexander, all of whom have reprised their roles for episodes of the ABC series. And of course, a Hawkeye appearance would surely be a huge ratings boost for the show, and a chance to plug the release of Age of Ultron. Not that it needs the extra promotion, of course…

Though Marvel's big and small screen universes are interconnected, one doesn't expect some of the most high-profile talent of the films to show up on Marvel's TV series like "Agents of Shield," "Daredevil" or "Agent Carter".
Supporting players like Jamie Alexander's Sif and Cobey Smulders' Maria Hill? Sure. The occasional impressive cameo like Sam Jackson's Nick Fury? Yeah. But Hemsworth's Thor or Johansson's Black Widow? Doubtful.
Pratt, who is currently in the midst of shooting the final season of "Parks and Recreation," seems open to the idea, saying: "I wouldn't rule it out. Marvel would have to decide, but if it made sense for the brand and for the story, yeah sure. »

Many questions arose from the first, awesome trailer for Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age Of Ultron: who is Andy Serkis playing? Why are the heroes (literally in Thor's case) at each other's throats? When did Ultron have a chance to sit down and watch Pinocchio? But one of the biggest talking points was the identity of the woman in blue, standing next to Chris Hemsworth's Thor just as Ultron makes his entrance during the party scene. She seemed too tall to be Natalie Portman's Jane Foster, she clearly wasn't Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and although there was a chance it was Thor's pal Sif (Jamie Alexander), that didn't seem likely either. Well, Newsarama have blown up the highest resolution image they could find, and it looks like we now have the identity of the actress at least...if not the character. Although the pic is still pretty blurry, »
If you’re already enjoying the so-far stellar second season of Agents of Shield on ABC, you may find yourself even happier next week when the cinematic world of Marvel collides with the television world (even though all these characters are technically in the same Marvel universe). While I’m not talking about another guest appearance by Samuel Jackson’s Nick Fury or Jamie Alexander’s Lady Sif from Thor, this news may be even better. Marvel has announced that the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron will premiere during next week’s episode of Agents of Shield on Oct. 28. Although it won’t be released until next May (May 1, to be exact), Avengers: Age of Ultron is already one of the most talked-about films coming out in 2015, and why wouldn’t it be? The first Avengers film brought in more than $200 million at the U. »

This obviously could be pretty cool, since not only is Robert Downey Jr. a great, likeable actor with plenty of screen presence, he also embodies an iconic character. Sherlock Holmes would be awesome on Marvel's Agents of Shield! (FitzSimmons are fans, after all.)
Okay, that was a joke. Obviously he'd play a time-travelling Charlie Chaplin, providing the taciturn Melinda May with someone to match in terms of silent acting. Though it's unlikely that even Charlie Chaplin could do Tai-Chi eye-rolling as well as Melinda May.
Earlier today, Robert Downey Jr. ("Chef") participated in a Reddit Ama to help promote his new film, The Judge. During it, he was asked by one user if he would open to appearing in the second season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. "Nothing is impossible. But there might be a fair amount of red tape involved in something like that," Downey Jr. explained, "I love Clark Gregg, and am pleased the show is doing so well." The first season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. included guest appearances from Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Maria Hill (Cobie Smulders) and Sif (Jaimie Alexander). Even with all of that the show has been struggling in the ratings. Could the ratings get a much needed lift if Iron Man/Tony Stark dropped in to say hello? Probably, but the true question is: would those extra viewers tune in the following week? »
To date, we have seen some big screen characters make appearances on ABC's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. like Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, but we have yet to see characters originating on the small screen jumping to the feature film world. That could change though and we may know who the first contender could be. Adrianne Palicki, best known for parts on the small screen Friday Night Lights and the failed Wonder Woman pilot as well as the big screen G.I. Joe: »

HBO hasn't made an official announcement yet, but its being reported this morning that Rachel McAdams has been offered the female lead role in Season 2 of True Detective. The actress is close to signing on, and we should have a definite answer sometime very soon.
Just yesterday, it was said that Keira Knightley had entered the race for the coveted role, auditioning alongside a number of actress both well known and somewhat obscure. Elisabeth Moss was the most popular choice, with Rosario Dawson also said to be a strong contender. Other auditioning actresses included Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, and Jamie Alexander, Oona Chaplin, Brit Marling, and Kelly Reilly.
If Rachel McAdams officially signs on, she will join Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn who were both officially confirmed by HBO earlier in the week. Taylor Kitsch is expected to take the fourth lead role.
Fast & Furious director Justin Lin is directing »
Given the flurry of verbiage typed upon each microscopic update (yes, we're implicating ourselves) you would think that "True Detective" season two was being directed by J.J. Abrams and is feature a Millennium Falcon. Neither is true, but there's no denying HBO's show is buzzy as all get out, and now it looks like Nic Pizzolatto and co. are circling in on a female lead. Beating out an array of contenders including Rosario Dawson, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, Abigail Spencer, Oona Chaplin, Jaimie Alexander, Brit Marling and the recently revealed Keira Knightley, Variety reports that Rachel McAdams now has the offer from the network for the lead female role. Moreover, Taylor Kitsch is "expected" to be on board as well for a second season that will follow three police officers and a career criminal who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. So, »

Update: Variety is reporting that HBO has offered the lead female role in the second season of "True Detective" to Rachel McAdams, who was previously thought to be the likeliest candidate for the role. Variety also expects Taylor Kitsch to land the fourth lead role, alongside McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell. The original post follows... When Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell were announced to star in the upcoming season of HBO's "True Detective", with Justin Lin (Fast and Furious 6) set to direct the first two episodes from scripts written by series creator Nic Pizzolatto, noticeably absent from HBO's press release was confirmation of a female lead that has been speculated about ever since the second season was announced earlier this year. In an interview with HitFix back in March, Pizzolatto promised a story about "hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system. »

In recent months, talk surrounding season two of HBO’s True Detective has focused on the possibility of two female leads taking centre stage. The likelihood of that iteration has died down, following two official confirmations from the network; Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn will co-star. As the second season steers into familiar territory though, there’s still a wealth of roles so far uncast.
In the running for what’s deemed a major female part are… well, most of Hollywood. According to Deadline, last Thursday eight big name actresses sat down to read for creator Nic Pizzolato in New York. A fresh name that was thrown into the mix is none other than Keira Knightley, who is a newbie to the True Detective rumour mill. Rosario Dawson, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, Abigail Spencer, Oona Chaplin, Jaimie Alexander, Brit Marling and Rachel McAdams have all been linked to the part in the past. »

With Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn now confirmed for "True Detective," the internet has decreed that the second season of the HBO procedural will either be the best or worst thing ever. And yet another name has entered the mix for one of the major female roles on the show. Deadline has tossed Keira Knightley into the fray that currently includes Rosario Dawson, Kelly Reilly, Jessica Biel, Malin Akerman, Abigail Spencer, Oona Chaplin, Jaimie Alexander, Brit Marling and Rachel McAdams. The actresses were all invited to read for one of the female leads, though the trade also says some could be contending for a different female role. So basically, nobody really knows anything except that Nic Pizzolatto has sat down or will sit down with all these folks. With fever around "True Detective" season two reaching iPhone 6 levels of hysteria before even a frame has been shot, perhaps everyone needs to chill. »

Following weeks of rumors, months of amusing memes and hashtags and Colin Farrell leaking the news himself anyway, HBO has finally confirmed that Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Director Justin Lin are signed on for the second season of Nic Pizzolato’s True Detective.
Via Deadline, Farrell will play a compromised cop in a corrupt Los Angeles police department torn between his allegiance between the Lapd and a mob boss. Vaughn will play another “career criminal” whose legitimate business partner threatens both his new legal endeavor and his criminal empire.
Deadline also has the log line for the new season: “Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder.”

A couple of days ago Colin Farrell revealed that he has signed on to star in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto’s acclaimed drama series True Detective, and now HBO has officially announced that both Farrell and Vince Vaughn are on board, as well as offering up the first plot details.
According to Variety, the story “will revolve around three cops and career criminal who navigate a web of conspiracy after a murder. Farrell plays Ray Velcoro, a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him. Vaughn plays Frank Semyon, a man in danger of losing his criminal empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.”

After months of speculation, rumors and even actors making announcements ahead of HBO, we now know who two of the stars of "True Detective" season 2 will be: Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn. HBO describes the new season thusly: "Three police officers and a career criminal must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder." Farrell will play Ray Velcoro, "a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him," while Vaughn has been cast as Frank Semyon, "a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner." Additional casting — notably the other two main cops — is still to come, though HBO also confirmed that Justin Lin will direct the season's first two episodes, stepping in for Emmy winner Cary Joji Fukunaga.

"I'm doing the second series. I'm so excited."
