Anne Marie cowering before GodzillaHello again! Anne Marie here, beaming to your computer screens direct from San Diego Comic Con. Though I thought it wasn't possible, it seems as though the convention got bigger and more crowded. So I learned my lesson and stayed far from the exhibition hall today. Instead, I wandered the Gaslamp District, saw some panels, and did some interviews. (More on those later.) But most of all, I waited in line. In a fun way!
Here are 6 new things I that learned today.
1) Marvel TV won't tell us anything about its Netflix shows. This despite the fact that Daredevil is already filming. Either they're saving that for the Marvel panel tomorrow afternoon (which seems unlikely), or Netflix hasn't yet gotten Sdcc-friendly. Netflix has been absent from Comic Con this year, which was suddenly more conspicuous when fully five of Marvel's new shows were absent from the discussion: Luke Cage, »

Marvel Studios announced today at San Diego Comic Con who was going to be directing the first episodes of Agent Carter all of which are big names surrounding the Captain America franchise. Come inside for all the wonderful details.
Marvel Studios co-president Louis D'Esposito himself will actually be directing the pilot. The Russo Brothers, of Captain America: The First Avenger fame, will be directing episodes two and three. The big surprise came when Joe Johnston, the director of Captain America: The First Avenger, stated he wanted to do the fourth episode. Fans apparently felt a collective sigh of relief given the Internet rumors about Johnson clashing with Marvel's top brass.
They later released the following press release: Marvel's Agent Carter - starring Captain America's Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the »

Much to the chagrin of fans, the Marvel TV panel at San Diego Comic-Con didn’t include any information or announcements about the upcoming Daredevil series, but did provide some information about the new Agent Carter show. We originally assumed that it would be a spin-off of the Agent Carter One-Shot short film included on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray, but as it turns out the show will be a prequel, and will take shape under a few Captain America directors.
The series will take place in 1946, after the events of Captain America: The First Avenger. Star Hayley Atwell is reprising her role as the titular British officer-turned S.H.I.E.L.D. founder, and introduced a short teaser that featured footage from The First Avenger and the Agent Carter short, as well as a voiceover that stated:
“The world is changing and if history has taught us anything, »

Marvel announced exciting details about its new show Agent Carter and confirmed a variety of guest stars for the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in front of a packed Ballroom 20 crowd at Comic-Con. Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel TV, revealed that they're bringing back in-house favorites to direct the first four episodes of Agent Carter's eight-episode run, which debuts in 2015. Louis D'Esposito, who directed the Agent Carter one-shot, will direct the first episode, while Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo are tapped to helm episodes two and three. Joe Johnston, the director of Captain America: The First Avenger, "wants to do episode four if his schedule allows," Loeb said. Hit the jump for more on the Marvel TV panel from Comic-Con.

Marvel's TV-related Comic Con panel is finishing up with some news regarding its two shows on ABC. First there's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." which announced several new characters that are set to make an appearance in the second season.
The previously announced Lucy Lawless is confirmed to be playing veteran S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Isabelle Hartley. Joining her this season will be Nick Blood as Lance Hunter who has been reimagined from the comics as a mercenary in this interpretation whom Coulson turns to for help.
Finally there's "Dollhouse" actor Reed Diamond who has been cast the big bad of the season - Daniel Whitehall (aka. The Kraken). In the comics, Whitehall is a legendary Hydra agent who spent decades training the group's best talent.
The biggest news though came through a video with Patton Oswalt in character as Agent Koenig. The »

Marvel Studios will take to Hall H tomorrow for its big presentation, during which an announcement on Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expected. However, today was all about the small screen side of the McU, with Jeph Loeb hosting the annual Marvel Television Presents panel, during which we were treated to a host of news about ABC’s Agent Carter and the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
With regards to the Hayley Atwell-headlined Agent Carter, Marvel Studios co-president and director of the Agent Carter One-Shot Louis D’Esposito will direct the first episode, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier helmers Anthony and Joe Russo tackling the second and third episodes, and Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnson keen on helming the fourth. Here’s a video of Hayley Atwell and company discussing the upcoming series…
And as for the second season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., »

Is Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. bringing on a costumed hero?
At Marvel TV’s San Diego Comic-Con panel on Friday, a special video featuring not one but two Patton Oswalts (as S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Billy and ??? Koenig) announced that Barbara Morse – aka costumed Marvel comics hero Mockingbird – was calling for Director Coulson. “She just wanted to say that if he needs her, she’s in,” declared one the Koenigs.

Marvel has announced that Captain America: The First Avenger director Joe Johnston and Captain America: The Winter Solider directors Joe and Anthony Russo will be brought in to direct episodes of the studio's new ABC TV series Agent Carter.
Co-president of Marvel Studios, Louis D’Esposito, will take on the pilot episode, which will star Hayley Atwell reprising her role from the films as Peggy Carter, one of the original S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. The series is set in 1947 after World War II has ended and while Steve Rogers is frozen in ice.
I love that Marvel is bringing on these directors to help bring this series to life. It just tells me that there's a good chance that it's going to be a great series. Here's the synopsis for the series:

Marvel is currently holding down their TV panel at Comic-Con right this very second, and just dropped two big announcements about ABC's mid-season adventure series Marvel's Agent Carter. It seems the hour long drama will be getting three directorial alumni from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Maybe even more surprising is that the two directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, brothers Joe Russo and Anthony Russo, are returning to the Marvel Cinematic universe to direct not one, but two episodes of Marvel's Agent Carter. They will help set the tone for the series, taking on the second and third episode.
It was also asked if Dominic Cooper was returning to play Tony Stark's father Howard Stark, which »
While the Russo brothers have closed their deal, Johnston’s deal is being finalized, Marvel said during the company’s TV panel at Comic-Con in San Diego on Friday.

At the San Diego Comic-Con panel for Marvel's Agent Carter the big reveal was which directors were coming on board to direct the first episodes of the ABC television series. Marvel Studios co-president Louis D'Esposito is directing the pilot. The second and third episodes will be directed by the Russo Brothers ("Captain America: The First Avenger"), who are quite familiar with the television format as they made their mark directing the paintball episodes for NBC's Community. But perhaps the biggest surprise is that Joe Johnston, who directed the 2011 film Captain America: The First Avenger wants to direct the fourth episode. This would dispell rumors of conflict between him and Marvel. Marvel's Agent Carter - starring Captain America's Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It's 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working »

Captain America: The First Avenger and The Winter Soldier writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely are currently hard at work on penning the screenplay for Cap’s third solo outing, which is slated to hit theaters on May 6, 2016. They were recently interviewed by ComicBookMovie, and were asked about what villains they would like to introduce next.
They obviously couldn’t say much, but did give a bit of insight into two villains in particular: Flag Smasher and Modok. One of them they would love to see brought into the fold (if they could make him grounded enough), while the other they feel they could never do justice. And you’ll never believe which one is which:
Markus: “That’s a little tricky because some of them are theoretically very good. Some of them have great concepts but are really tough to pull off visually. Like Flag-Smasher who wants to destroy nations, »

When directors turned movies like Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger into hits, Marvel and the industry collectively gave the credit to the characters and actors. But if Guardians Of The Galaxy breaks out, then a whole bunch of credit is going to come James Gunn's way, as he inexplicably makes the journey from one-time Troma darling to A-List blockbuster helmer. And with Gunn currently contracted for one more Marvel movie, everyone is assuming he'll sign on for Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 . But he might have his sights set on something different within the House Of Ideas. In an interview with Screenrant , James Gunn was asked very specifically about Thunderbolts. And here was his suspiciously specific answer. "Thunderbolts? I will tell you, one time I was saying to Kevin [Feige], we were sitting on set together on one of the days he visited and I said, .You know, I »
As the box-office juggernaut that is Marvel Studios rolls inexorably onwards, it's easy to forget that they haven't actually launched a new movie property since 2011, when Captain America: The First Avenger didn't so much smash the box office as give it a severe denting. Aside from the anticipation built by a pair of pop-tinged trailers, Guardians Of The Galaxy is all-new to the vast majority of the public. The question must be asked: can Marvel still deliver from what is essentially a standing start?
If you had doubts, you can safely dismiss them. Guardians is exactly what the trailers promised: a slacker comedy in space where the fate of billions lies in the hands of people who can barely stop squabbling long enough to shoot in the same direction. »
This may not be the most exciting thing to come out of San Diego Comic-Con today, but the official logo for Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones’ Warcraft adaptation has been revealed. The logo was on display at the Legendary Pictures booth, along with some weaponry. Take a look at the logo here…
Jones finished shooting Warcraft a few months ago, so hopefully we’ll be seeing some teaser footage or images from the film as Sdcc continues.
Warcraft is an adaptation of the incredibly popular video game franchise, and arrives in theaters on March 11, 2016. It sports a great cast that includes Travis Fimmel (Vikings), Paula Patton (Misson: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Ben Foster (Lone Survivor, X-Men: The Last Stand), Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim), Dominic Cooper (Captain America: The First Avenger), Daniel Wu (The Man with the Iron Fists), and Clancy Brown (Starship Troopers, »

When I managed to speak briefly with the writers of Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 2016's Captain America 3 earlier this week, I made sure to ask which villains they would like to introduce in a future movie. They obviously couldn't say too much, but did reveal one character they're not sure we'll ever see on the big screen and another that at least one of them would be interested in introducing...if they can ever find a way to make it work in the tone established in this particular corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Christopher Markus: That's a little tricky because some of them are theoretically very good. Some of them have great concepts but are really tough to pull off visually. Like Flag-Smasher who wants to destroy nations, and that's a terrorist and seems like a guy you could work with, »
"We went out drinking one night and he was like, 'You know, it would be great to write something for you'," Atwell told Entertainment Weekly.
"And I was like, 'Yes, Joss, it would! It would be amazing!'"
