As Netflix continues to assert itself as a major television company with such acclaimed series as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, Amazon Studios is racing to catch up by ordering series it hopes will be equally well-received.

During Marvel's big announcement of its upcoming films, a clip from "Avengers: Age of Ultron" was shown, seemingly setting up the differences between Captain America and Iron Man before the two battle each other in "Captain America 3: Civil War." The clip takes place on Hawkeye's farm and has now leaked online. Check it out below. And because the video is not the best quality, we're including a transcript of what's being said. Tony Stark: Thor didn't say where he's going to get answers? Steve Rogers:: Sometimes my teammates don't tell me things. I was kinda hoping Thor would be the exception. Tony Stark: Yeah, in time. We don't know what the Maximoff kid showed him. Steve Rogers: I don't know what she showed you. It's enough to make you do something stupid. Earth's Mightiest Heroes . pulled us apart like cotton candy. Tony Stark: Well, it seems that you walked away alright. »
Nerdist Industries has debuted a fall show perfect for this Halloween season. The company acquired by Legendary Entertainment premiered a new episode of The Real Housewives of Horroron October 30, 2014, with special guest star Chris Hardwick. Created by Kevin Pereira (from G4’s Attack of the Show) and Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), The Real Housewives of Horror parodies all those reality TV shows about the daily lives and “struggles” of rich housewives. However, the web series takes on a decidedly darker yet more comedic angle as the women in Nerdist’s version are all married to or interested in monsters, killers, or demonic spirits. In the newest episode “Dawn of the Dawn: The Dawnening,” Grant’s character Heather decides to host a speed-dating night for her friend Barbara Dawn (Brooke Seguin), who’s just getting over the death of her late, hatchet-wielding husband Cage Trollman. Barbara meets several eligible men, including »

One tidbit that cut through the white noise of Tuesday’s colossal Marvel event was the fact that Captain America 3 — now given the rather apt title, Captain America: Civil War — would instigate the third phase in the company’s shared cinematic universe. As such, the upcoming threequel quickly became one of the most important films on Marvel’s grand slate.
We already know that Steve Rogers and Tony Stark don’t meet eye to eye at the best of times, but in this leaked clip from Avengers: Age of Ultron, the pair have a rather snappy exchange of words whilst hiding from the titular villain — one which points towards the game-changing conflict that stems from the global Superhuman Registration Act.
That’s not all the information lurking within this clip, though, as Cap references the Maximoff Twins — aka Scarlett Witch and Quicksilver — who are, at this point in the film, »

Earlier today we brought you the first clip and extended trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron [which you see here], but that wasn’t the only footage shown during Marvel Studios’ big press event yesterday, as a clip of Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers and Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark was also screened, and it has made its way online in bootleg, shaky-cam quality…
Marvel Studios presents Avengers: Age of Ultron, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and »

The Flash, Season 1, Episode 4, “Going Rogue”
Directed by Glen Winter
Airs Wednesday at 8pm Et on The CW
Taking into account a DVR playback The Flash series pilot has risen to 6.8 million viewers and counting since it first premiered. That’s The CW’s most-watched telecast in the network’s history. If you count all platforms, the tally rises to 13 million viewers. If anything, “Going Rogue” will only help boost these numbers. With a script that never forgets its heroes’ humanity, and an episode that features two superpowered set pieces, “Going Rogue” lives up to its hype — and raises the bar for the DC canon. Not only does this episode introduce Wentworth Miller but the special guest star turned in a great performance as one of the Flash’s best-known enemies, the famous Captain Cold. And if that isn’t enough to tune in, »
Earlier today, it was finally announced that among the nine films that will encompass Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther is finally getting his own solo effort and he’ll be played by Chadwick Boseman. Now, Deadline is reporting that Boseman will be sticking around the McU for quite a while, as he has landed a five-picture deal with the studio.
Boseman will make his debut as Wakanda-native superhero T’Challa in Captain America: Civil War in 2016, and then head off on his own big screen adventure the following year. This actually marks the first time that a character has headlined his own project after showing up in another franchise entry, and from a business standpoint it makes a lot of sense.

It’s been one hell of a day for Marvel fans, who were treated to an exciting announcement outlining all of Marvel’s Phase Three films. This includes solo pics for Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and The Inhumans to go along with Captain America: Civil War, Thor: Ragnarok and a two-part Avengers: Infinity War. However, one iconic and beloved Marvel character was left out of the party completely: Spider-Man.
Of course, I know why Spider-Man wasn’t even mentioned, as the character is currently owned by Sony Pictures. But following the recent rumors that the web slinger would be joining a future Avengers film, I was kind of hoping that universes would collide for this one.

For a sizable portion of comic book fans, the news that Marvel Studios will be releasing a Captain Marvel movie in July 2018 is long overdue. But for others (especially non-comic fans of the Marvel characters), there might be a sense of “Wait, Captain who?” Marvel has had a Captain Marvel in its lineup since 1967, when Stan Lee and Gene Colan introduced an alien soldier called Mar-Vell (no, really) in the pages of Marvel Super-Heroes No. 12. That isn’t the same Captain Marvel who’ll be showing up onscreen four years from now, however; that Captain Marvel
