Last week, we showed you a clip from this week's Marvel's Agent Carter which showcased the return of The Howling Commandos from Captain America: The First Avenger. As it turns out, Tuesday night's episode "The Iron Ceiling" also features another Marvel Cinematic Universe connection, the Black Widow training program. Long before Nathasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) became the Black Widow, Russia had been training young assassins, who we get to see in this new episode. If you didn't watch last week's episode, "The Blitzkrieg Button", there will be a few spoilers below.
"The Blitzkrieg Button" revealed that Peggy's new neighbor Dottie (Bridget Regan) killed the dangerous Mr. Mink with a very familiar fighting style. Showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas confirmed in an interview with IGN that Dottie is in fact part of the Black Widow program. Tara Butters revealed that they won't actually be calling her Black Widow on the show, »
Back in September, Marvel helped set up Agent Carter in the Season 2 premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., with a 1940s flashback scene that featured Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and two of the Howling Commandos from Captain America: The First Avenger, Dum Dum Dugan (Neal McDonough) and Jim Morita (Kenneth Choi). Today, Marvel released a new clip from next week's Marvel's Agent Carter episode, "The Iron Ceiling", featuring the return of the Howling Commandos. This time around, Dum Dum Dugan and Jim Morita are joined by Junior Juniper (James Austin Kerr), Pinky Pinkerton (Richard Short) and Happy Sam Sawyer (Leonard Roberts)
Peggy is finally trusted with a mission and calls upon her Howling Commandos squad for backup. But her cover could be at risk when Ssr Chief Dooley (Shea Whigham) also sends Agent Thompson (Chad Michael Murray) with her. As you can see in the clip below, the Howling Commandos may be great in battle, »

Back in November, it was confirmed that Marvel's Agent Carter star Hayley Atwell will appear in Ant-Man. A rumor from August suggested that a younger Hank Pym will meet up with the founding members of S.H.I.E.L.D., which does include Peggy Carter. While that exact scene hasn't been confirmed, Newsarama has received a preview of Marvel's comic book prelude, set to debut next week, which shows an older Peggy Carter working with Hank Pym during the Cold War. Take a look at the comic book's description below.
"Before Scott Lang becomes Marvel's shrinking sensation, Dr. Hank Pym will pull on the helmet and leap into action on a death-defying mission that will take him into the icy heart of Cold War East Berlin!"
As you can see in the comic book panels below, Peggy is seen testing Pym's ability to improvise under pressure, which is similar »

Nick Frost ("Shaun Of The Dead"), Toby Jones ("Captain America: The First Avenger") and Eddie Marsan ("The World's End") will not reprise their Snow White & The Huntsman roles in Cedric Nicolas-Troyan's The Huntsman, according to Deadline. In fact, only two dwaves will be back for the follow-up. Who are they? Deadline doesn't know at this time. Well, you count out Bob Hoskins too. The actor passed away shortly after the film came out. That leaves Ian McShane, Johnny Harris, Ray Winstone and Brian Gleeson as possibilities to return. Deadline did provide reasons as to why Frost, Jones and Marsan aren't coming back. Marsan was never a consideration. His schedule is too busy based on his role in the Showtime series, Ray Donovan. As for Frost and Jones, they couldn't agree on the terms Universal offered them. Boo! The sequel sends the Huntsman on a quest to find the magic »
Don’t mess with Agent Carter — she's tough, she's determined, and she'll look positively flawless while kicking any man's butt.
After only three episodes, fans everywhere have already fallen head over heels for Marvel's Agent Carter. Not only are we obsessed with the adrenaline-pumping plot and action-packed twists, the ABC drama's leading lady Hayley Atwell is finally giving us the kickass Marvel heroine we've been impatiently waiting for.
Luckily when ETonline sat down with stars Atwell and James D'Arcy, they confirmed that the series is only going to get better and better from here on out. Plus, they revealed that it only takes three things — the perfect shade of red lipstick, killer high-heels, and a good hat — for any gal to become a badass secret agent like Peggy.
Marvel's Agent Carter went on a brief one-week break last week, but the show returns with the all new episode "The Blitzkrieg Button" on Tuesday, January 27 at 8 Pm Et. Marvel has released the first clip, which shows Jarvis (James D'Arcy) trying to negotiate a deal with a couple of thugs, although his bizarre choice of currency ($1,000 bills) leaves these criminals wanting more. Fortunately for Jarvis, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) uses her covert skills to take out a group of gun-toting underlings standing guard while the deal goes down, arriving just in time to save Jarvis.
Peggy may be in more trouble than usual when fugitive Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) suddenly returns for mysterious reasons. And Chief Dooley (Shea Whigham) chases a new clue all the way to Europe that threatens to destroy Peggy's future at the Ssr. The series also stars Chad Michael Murray as Ssr Agent Jack Thompson and »

No latex, no drooling, no preaching – has Marvel's Agent Carter mastered the comic book heroine?
Warning: contains mild spoilers for Agent Carter.
The perfect standalone female comic book hero has been a somewhat unobtainable dream for both Hollywood moviemakers and small screen show-runners ever since Blade, X-Men and Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man launched us into the modern age of superhero multimedia dominance.
Of course, there have been attempts – Catwoman and Elektra were released in 2004 and 2005 respectively, both hoping that the proven bankability of their heroine’s male counterparts (as in, Batman and Daredevil) and a few skimpy outfits would be enough to help launch massive new female-fronted franchises.
Sadly, both productions essentially missed the point. While exploitative images of nearly-nude lady vigilantes might be enough to make a few shillings from the comic-buying masses, making a mint from a comic book movie takes strong performances, solid action, likeable characters and – above all – good stories. »

This article contains spoilers for American Sniper.
American Sniper stands to be the most financially profitable of this year's Best Picture Oscar contenders by a long way, having out-grossed most of the others' lifetime domestic totals in its first weekend on wide release.
The $90.2 million opening is the highest January opening of all time, more than doubling the opening weekend record set by Ride Along at the same time last year, and it's easily the strongest box office performer of director Clint Eastwood's career.
In short, it did the kind of business you would expect from a superhero movie, or a new instalment in an established franchise, and yet it's an R-rated war drama based on a true story. Irrespective of our thoughts on the film, that's a stunning début. »
The trailer for Ant-Man was released a couple of weeks ago and many were surprised by the sombre tone. Given the movie is directed by Peyton Reed (I Love You, Man) and written by Adam McKay (Anchorman) with Edgar Wright (The World’s End) and Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) having also previously worked on the project, many thought it would be more comedic compared to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In fact, several of our writers (and the Flickering Myth Podcast) theorised that a more serious trailer had been cut to stick with the “Marvel style”, while the actual movie would be tonally different.

Gotham, The Flash, Arrow... Why do the current crop of geek TV shows have such trouble creating a central romance fans want to root for?
At the moment, a fair amount of geek TV shows seem to be producing particularly poor depictions of love and romance. The problem is only confounded by the fact that, with fandom as vocal as it is nowadays, any negative element of a show is sure to be rigorously reanalysed. As a result, love interests come into a lot of criticism from the online community.
In an attempt to find a fix, we had look through some of our favourite shows to deduce which ones get it right, and which struggle horribly. Hopefully, we can uncover the secret to getting romantic writing right in nerdy TV…
Nowadays, the term ‘love interest’ seems a bit old hat, »
The website, thedentedhelmet.com, posted original concept art that Joe Johnston created for Boba Fett when he worked as a concept artist on George Lucas' Star Wars films. And yes, that is the same Joe Johnston that directed Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989), Jumanji (1995) and even Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger (2011). When you look at these alternate white-armor designs you may not even recognize him as the character that hunted down Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes After the destruction of the Death Star, Imperial forces continue to pursue the Rebels. After the Rebellion's defeat on the ice planet Hoth, Luke journeys to the planet Dagobah to train with Jedi Master Yoda, who has lived in hiding since the fall of the Republic.

Chris Evans' run as Captain America will soon be over, with the actor currently locked into a 6 picture contract with Marvel. He's already shot two standalone movies, with Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and two team movies with Marvel's The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. His fifth film will be Captain America: Civil War, and he'll presumably be in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1, but it is unclear if Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 is a continuation of 'one film' under his contract. However you slice it, though, someone will eventually have to step in and claim the shield. Will it be Anthony Mackie as Falcon? Or Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Solider?
Anthony Mackie recently chatted with Windy City Live, and talked a little bit about the passing of the shield, though he doesn't give a very definitive answer, instead »

The Marvel Universe is experiencing record expansion. It’s not quite ubiquitous yet, but it certainly seems to be everywhere. Black Widow still hasn’t gotten her own movie yet, and while that feels an awful lot like outright ignoring vocal fan demand, it should also be said that if Marvel Studios churned out a terrible Black Widow movie just to quiet the fanbase that it would be worse than no Black Widow movie at all.
The good news is they are not ignoring the clamor for more female superheroes to show up onscreen. While “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.takes a hiatus until March, ABC is airing “Agent Carter.” We first met Agent Carter in “Captain America: The First Avenger” and she made an undeniable impression. After all, who is going to forget her faith that the vibranium shield would both keep Cap safe and help her prove her point? »
