Agent Carter renewed

ABC likes Marvel’s agents — well, most of them — and the network will give each of the two ABC Marvel shows a new season. So: Agent Carter renewed? Check. Agents of SHIELD renewed? Check. The proposed spin-off from Agents of SHIELD greenlit? Well, no. That one has been slapped down like a weak Hydra agent. More details follow. Read More »

SHIELD spinoff cast

Adrianne Palicki had one shot at superhero stardom on TV when she nabbed the lead role in a Wonder Woman pilot. That show never made it to series, however. But she ended up as a regular on the second season of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, and now she’s one of the two leads of the developing SHIELD spin-off series. Read More »

SHIELD Winter Soldier tie in

The film that most directly influences May’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In that film, the group known as S.H.I.E.L.D. falls when its revealed that they’ve long been infiltrated by the evil group, Hydra. At the end of that movie, S.H.I.E.L.D is almost totally gone and in the new movie, it’s The Avengers who are protecting the world.

Of course, we know S.H.I.E.L.D. isn’t totally gone because there’s a TV show, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, that’s still going on. In the show’s first season, we saw how the events of The Winter Soldier directly influenced and changed the show and in Tuesday’s episode, One Door Closes, we’ll see more of what happened on that day. The show flashs back to “The Day S.H.I.E.L.D Fell” to show what Bobbi (Adrianne Palicki) was doing that day along with Mack (Henry Simmons) and even Agent Robert Gonzales (Edward James Olmos), who kept S.H.I.E.L.D. together after the attacks.

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.

John Wick trailer

Between this weekend’s The Drop and next month’s John Wick, handsome action stars snuggling adorable puppies could just be the next big movie trend. And just for the record, I would be totally okay with that.

Keanu Reeves leads John Wick as the title character, whose greatest joys in life are his sweet ride and his even sweeter dog. One day, some mean idiots led by Alfie Allen decide to take away his things. That turns out to be a huge mistake, because John Wick is actually a retired hitman who knows exactly how to go about getting his revenge. The first John Wick trailer has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump.
