With the rise of superhero programming on network television, there was bound to be one night where Marvel and D.C. offerings would compete. That night finally came on Tuesday, when ABC aired an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The CW aired the very first episode of its new drama The Flash.
One of the big questions related to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that fans have often asked is whether or not the series will be able to pull in some big names from the movie world to appear on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. This morning, Iron Man and The Avengers’ Robert Downey Jr. addressed this very question.
While Elizabeth Henstridge hasn't exactly been absent from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. since Season 2 got going, Jemma Simmons' presence within the show has been kind of tricky, to say the least. (Spoilers if you're not caught up, obviously.)
In the history of Marvel Comics, characters have been brought back to life in hundreds if not thousands of different ways, from dimensional shifts to miracle cures to time travel. Agent Phil Coulson, however, is perhaps the first to be brought back thanks to the power of the popular social media site Twitter.
Now that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s second season is off and running, we are now back to having weekly looks and updates from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
ABC has released a new poster for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. The Marvel drama returns to TV for its second season in a matter of days. (Spoilers if you're not caught up on Season 1!) Let's take a look at this poster...
Luckily, Cinema Blend has combed through last year’s premieres. We’ve watched and rewatched some of our favorite episodes, and we’ve cultivated a list of the Season 2 shows we feel pretty confident about. If you’ve been wondering what the various networks have to offer this is the best of the best, at least when it comes to second year shows. Pick ‘em up. It’s not too late to get on board and you haven’t missed too much with each of these shows.
We're only a few months away from seeing what Hayley Atwell can do with her own television series, as Marvel Studio's Agent Carter will be making its debut at mid-season. The good news, however, is that we're now only a few weeks away from a very fun preview. As we reported earlier this week, Atwell's Peggy Carter will be making a guest appearance in second season premiere of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - and, as you can see above, today we have our first look at what we can expect.
Agent Peggy Carter, as portrayed by Hayley Atwell, has been popping up everywhere in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since her debut in 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger. Last year she was featured in her very own Marvel One Shot, earlier this year she had a brief cameo appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (where she was sadly seen as old and suffering from dementia), and very soon she will be at the center of a brand new TV show, simply called Agent Carter. Before that, however, she will first be showing up on Marvel's other big network series.
We're less than a month away from the return of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for its second season. Sure, it took a while for the first season to heat up, but it most definitely did heat up by season's end, and the new promo for Season 2 reminds us that S.H.I.E.L.D. is down but not out. The stakes are higher than ever.
Lucy Lawless' anticipated arrival on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is one more reason to look forward to the series, and today Marvel has given us our first look at the Xena: Warrior Princess star in her role in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Vague spoiler alert (or big spoiler alert if you're not caught up through Season 1!)
Agents Of SHIELD has finally cast the actress who will be playing Barbara "Mockingbird" Morse in Season 2. You could say, she's a wonder-ful choice!
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is already set to have a number of new faces appear in the second season of the show, having announced appearances by Lucy Lawless (Isabelle Hartley), Reed Diamond (Daniel Whitehall), and Nick Blood (Lance Hunter) at San Diego Comic-Con last month. But there is a lot of episodes ahead, and the series isn't done adding to recurring cast members.
We can expect that the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be quite different from its first season –and not just because the titular clandestine organization ended up being massively corrupt and overrun by HYDRA agents. In addition to that fact, we also expect a whole bunch of new characters to be introduced… and today at San Diego Comic-Con we got early word on the newbies who are coming aboard.
Lucy Lawless is what you might call a geek-friendly actress. While she got her start on the fantasy series Xena: Warrior Princess, she has followed it with great appearances in genre shows like Battlestar Galactica and Spartacus. Because of these credits, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is certainly something that fans would expect her to eventually become a part of, and now that idea is actually becoming a reality.
