Marvelous DA7E 70: Agent Carter is the Coulson of Phase 2

Welcome To Issue 70!

If This Is Your First Time Here: Welcome! This is my weekly column where I talk about superhero movie news, rumors and speculation. Dr. Strange director Scott Derrickson thinks I'm a F*cktard.

This Week: We got a look at Agent Carter and Jessica Chastain enters the Marvel rumor mill.

Happy post-election day, which is also New Comic Book Day and - for yours truly - another day in the Spider-Verse for Marvel Comics. I’m doing well all things considered, even as election fever gripped television last night, pushing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and other TV I wanted to watch off the week so we could get returns.

Instead, on ABC, we were treated to an hour-long special about Marvel Comics narrated by Agent 13, Emily Van camp, who I had almost forgot about even though she’s the next in line for a Cap love interest

8 Biggest Movie And TV News This Week (May 3)

Lucasfilm

Holy movie news, Batman! What a week it’s been. This week’s news brief may only have 8 main stories, but they’re all pretty big developments that should give us plenty to talk about for the foreseeable future. In fact, many of them have already spawned a number of articles on the site.

Things got started with a bang as news broke on Sunday night that a Justice League movie was in development over at Warner Bros. Then we got some incredibly exciting and indescribably satisfying Star Wars: Episode VII casting news (it’s finally sunk in that more Star Wars movies are happening!). We’ve also got some updates about Hugh Jackman’s tenure as Wolverine, Baz Luhrmann’s new Elvis Presley biopic, and a geek-tastic casting update for Terminator: Genesis (here’s a hint: it requires a bow tie and sonic screwdriver).

To top that all off,

Review: Marvel’s The Avengers

  • Comicmix
Many of the comment that follow are lifted directly from a blog post I wrote after seeing Marvel’s The Avengers opening weekend. I stand by these words and note that I have since then seen it in 2-D in a theater and on my home screen via the just-released Combo Pack. The movie is so well-crafted as to remain entertaining on repeated viewings.

Disney Home Entertainment has released this in a dizzying assortment of collections, some exclusive to certain retailers, such as the Walmart one that comes with a graphic novel by Peter David and an army of artists. The four-disc commercial set comes with the 3-D and 2-D Blu-ray discs, standard DVD, and digital copy. This one also has a link to download music inspired by the film. What I was sent for review is the slightly less spiffy two disc set (Blu-ray and DVD) but it is certainly sufficient.

'Avengers' Deleted Scene Features An Indecisive Mark Ruffalo

If you wished that "Marvel's The Avengers" had featured a bit more of Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, then you're in luck. The first deleted scene from the movie has been released, and it features the character in an extended look at one of his funniest scenes in the movie.

The scene in question has Bruce Banner questioning whether he'll do more good rejoining the fight against Loki alongside his fellow Avengers or staying away so he won't potentially hurt anyone. Helping him make the decision is the security guard played by Harry Dean Stanton, who previously had only noted, "Well, son, it looks like you have a condition." Here he serves a greater purpose by offering Bruce some pretty great advice.

One of Bruce's biggest sources of conflict in "The Avengers" is his inability to find a balance between both sides of his personality. Maybe this little conversation had something

Comic-con 2012: Marvel One Shot: Item 47 Screens for Fans

On September 25th, Marvel One Shot: Item 47 will debut with Marvel's The Avengers when it hits Blu-ray for the first time this fall. While dusting the convention center floors of Comic-Con with its pixie dust magic last night, Marvel actually previewed this latest short film for fans after engaging them in a scavenger hunt, and it proved to be the most ambitious of the Marvel One-Shots thus far.

Clocking in at roughly twelve minutes, the short was introduced by Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., while sitting in the bathroom on the North Carolina set. He joked about filming his big "toilet escape" scene in a nod to director Shane Black 's earlier work scripting Lethal Weapon.

Lizzy Caplan and Jesse Bradford take the lead roles in Marvel One Shot: Item 47, starring as young couple Benny and Claire, and its no coincidence that their names hit close to Bonnie and Clyde.

Casting News

Here's your daily dose of casting bits, readers. Eat them all up, they're good for you. They make your eyeballs big and strong, and that's a trait the opposite sex appreciates. I promise.Now, onto the news...Jai Courtney, who you might remember best as Spartacus’ big blond friend in “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” has joined Christopher McQuarrie’s “One Shot.” He’ll be playing a sniper who aims (pun not intended) to stop Tom Cruise’s Jack Reacher. It’s a big break for Courtney – and if you want to feel a bit sniffly, Deadline says that the late Andy Whitfield is to thank, as he took Courtney under his wing and found him a manager. ·Woody Harrelson has joined the cast of “Now You See Me,” an action-thriller that centers on a group of bank-robbing magicians called the Four Horsemen.
