Agent Carter

Like so many of her sexist colleagues, we made the mistake of underestimating Peggy Carter when she first burst onto the scene. We enjoyed her in Captain America: The First Avenger, but assumed we wouldn’t see much more of her beyond the occasional flashback. Little did we know that in a few years time, she’d be headlining her very own series.

Said show, Agent Carter, is due to premiere in a few months, and Marvel is now ramping up its marketing efforts. The very first Agent Carter clip sets up the story: Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) is in danger, and he’s sending his pal Peggy (Hayley Atwell) and his butler Jarvis (James D’Arcy) on a mission to clear his name. Watch the Agent Carter clip after the jump.

Update: Marvel has announced the specific premiere dates for Agent Carter and the return of Agents of SHIELD. Find both below as well.

mockingbird

(Spoilers for last night’s Agents of SHIELD episode, “A Hen in the Wolf House,” ahead.)

Following her casting over the summer, Adrianne Palicki made her first appearance as Bobbi Morse on Agents of SHIELD in last night’s episode. She even got to kick some serious ass in her role, beating up baddies with her signature batons.

But that was Bobbi undercover as a Hydra agent, in her Hydra uniform. It’s not really the same thing as seeing Mockingbird in action. So while we wait for that glorious day, we have a first look at Palicki’s Mockingbird costume. Hit the jump to see the Agents of SHIELD Mockingbird.

MSDBAPA FE007

A few weeks ago, we got word that the 1988 Tom Hanks classic Big was being adapted for the small screen by Fox. Now ABC is also mining Hanks’ resume for material, and has come up with a TV series based on the 1984 comedy Bachelor Party. If someone options Splash, we can officially call “TV shows based on ’80s comedies starring Tom Hanks” a new hyper-specific trend.

Hit the jump for more on the Bachelor Party TV series.

Uncle Buck

TV networks may want to start checking with filmmakers before rushing ahead to remake their works. Earlier this week, a Say Anything… TV series was announced and then swiftly scrapped when Say Anything… movie director Cameron Crowe objected loudly and publicly. Now it’s possible ABC’s planned Uncle Buck reboot could meet the same fate.

While neither director John Hughes nor star John Candy are alive to offer their opinions on the project, their families are speaking up on their behalf. And long story short, they are not at all happy. Hit the jump to read their comments.

Agents of SHIELD season 2 trailer

This summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy was perhaps Marvel’s funniest, most colorful, most playful offering ever. But the studio’s next release looks deadly serious. ABC has just revealed the new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 trailer, which hints at dark times ahead for our heroes. The organization was shaken to its core last season by the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Season 2 has the team continuing to deal with the fallout.

The latest promo features a grim speech from Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) about sacrifice and protecting the innocent, all over tons of new footage. It also begins and ends with shots of Coulson gazing unhappily out the window, all the better to impress upon you the gravity of the situation. Hit the jump to watch the new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Agent Carter

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. wasn’t quite the runaway success that ABC had hoped for, but the network isn’t giving up on Marvel just yet. To the contrary, it’s thinking of doubling down.
