Agent Coulson’s fate in Marvel’s The Avengers was the emotional center of the movie. It was also a huge disappointment. The event certainly helped motivate the team to assemble and save the world, but it also meant we probably wouldn’t see Clark Gregg‘s fantastic character again.
Of course, that changed last year when Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed Gregg would reprise the role in the ABC pilot Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., co-written and directed by Joss Whedon. But exactly how was that going to work? Did Thor use some Asgardian magic? Did Tony Stark create a special arc reactor? Did Bruce Banner blast him with gamma radiation? None of the above. A source has revealed to /Film how Whedon and company plan to bring the character back for the ABC show and you can read it below. Read More »
Either Joss Whedon is messing with us or he just let a huge piece of Avengers 2 information slip. The writer/director was at the premiere of Iron Man 3 in Hollywood Wednesday and was asked for an update on the highly anticipated 2015 sequel:
I have actually finished a draft and I’m redoing it now. I think it’s in really good shape. We’re in a very good place…I’ve been writing and meeting with actors and we’re starting to storyboard, all the preliminary processes. This is the part where it’s all still fun.
Sounds like the film is well on its way. But here’s the even more revealing quote. Whedon was asked about the process and slipped this little gem in:
I’ve got these two characters, two of my favorite characters from the comic book, a brother-sister act. They’re in the movie.
Could it be he actually let that info out? After the jump, read more about it along with some new set photos from Captain America: The Winter Soldier and a new image from Thor: The Dark World. Read More »
The Avengers will assemble once again early next year. Director Joss Whedon was at the MTV Movie Awards (accepting Movie Of The Year) and discussed his highly-anticipated follow-up to one of the most successful films of all-time. He said filming is likely to start on The Avengers 2 in February 2014, that he had the idea for the sequel’s story before the first film was complete and what happens to the characters next is going to be “awful.”
Whedon also talked about his excitement over Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., how difficult it is to keep Marvel’s secrets and a few other classic Whedonverse questions. Watch the interview and read some quotes below. Read More »

Technically, Joss Whedon‘s S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot hasn’t even been given a series order, let alone set an airdate. But with its can’t-miss premise and intriguing roster of talent, it’s already shaping up to be one of the most exciting premieres 2013-2014 for TV viewers and TV execs alike.
ABC recently revealed some new information about the series on their website for advertisers, including an updated title and an official synopsis. The description doesn’t reveal a whole lot about the plot that we didn’t already know, but it does describe the Agents (played by Clark Gregg, Brett Dalton, Ming-Na Wen, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, and Chloe Bennet) in slightly more detail. Hit the jump to keep reading.

Joss Whedon‘s habit of calling back former Whedonverse alums is well established. But with the exception of Clark Gregg, who’ll reprise his role from the movies as Agent Phil Coulson, the cast of S.H.I.E.L.D. has so far been populated with all-new faces. (Well, new to Whedon.) That changed today, as former Angel star J. August Richards joined the ABC superhero series in a mysterious role. Hit the jump to keep reading.
