Briefly: Marvel Studios has a good support structure for the show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., because it can drum up new interest in the show with episodes that relate very directly to Marvel’s theatrical releases. We’re going to see that happen for sweeps week later this month, when the story of Thor: The Dark World is directly continued in an episode on TV.
How will that happen? Not having seen the Thor sequel I can’t say exactly, but we’ve got some vague explanation below. (Note: since I haven’t seen Thor I also can’t verify whether or not this is a spoiler, but the language is general enough that even the most protective reader should be OK.) Read More »

Yup, more quotes from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. But when the man in charge of such an exciting slate of films actually comes out and talks to the press (a rarity in the business in general – do you see Kathleen Kennedy doing as much press?) you’d be smart to pay attention.
With his latest quotes, Feige discusses one of the subgenres Marvel has yet to tackle on film, but have started discussing, is an old-school secret identity film. Then, over in the TV realm, he teases the possibility of a more mature, non-network Marvel TV show potentially focusing on Daredevil or the Punisher, and the possibility of Phase 2 films having ramifications on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

So to get fans to pony up the extra few bucks for the 3D screenings of the film, out November 8, they’re attaching a five minute preview of next year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier to 3D screenings only.
