Briefly: Tuesday’s return episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is rumored to answer a big question: where was Agent Coulson between The Avengers and the beginning of the show? That potential info has created a little buzz for the show and this new tidbit will probably cause more. Marvel legend Stan Lee has revealed he’ll have a “big role” on the February 4th episode of the show. Considering he’s been in almost every Marvel movie up until now, it makes sense.

Briefly: Very little is know right now but Stan Lee, the creator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers and so many others, is making a secret movie with Amazing Spider-Man producer Avi Arad. The project, currently set up at Sony and on the search for producers and a writer, is being kept under wraps so there’s no clue if it’s a superhero film or not. All Arad would say on the topic is “Some titles give away too much.” This is one we’ll definitely keep an eye on. [The Hollywood Reporter]

We’ve got a good idea of what Marvel Studios has planned for the next few years. Clearly we know many details about Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The First Avenger, and a bit less about Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Beyond that we’ve got a pretty good idea that Black Panther and Doctor Strange will get their time as leads of feature films. Stan Lee, who co-created the Marvel Universe in the early ’60s, has just said as much, supporting a great deal of other comments various people have made in the past year.
