In “The Hub”, dangerous secrets are being kept from Coulson’s team and he works the system to save Ward and Fitz when they are sent on a Level 8 classified mission that may end in tragedy. This episode also features the return of Maximiliano Hernandez as Agent Sitwell from the Marvel One-Shot “Item 47″.
I still haven’t watched last weeks episode, but I’m looking forward to getting caught up. Also, for anyone who was hoping to see more of J. August Richard’s character from the pilot, a little bird told me to keep watching. So, I’m going to.
Though I would have anyway…
Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. just not doing it for you? Maybe you love it and wish there was more live action Marvel offerings. Well, either way you just hit the jackpot tiger. Marvel has just announced a huge four series deal with Netflix that will bring the troubled heroes of Hell’s Kitchen to the small screen and then unite them for a re-imagining of The Defenders. Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron freaking Fist. Here are the details, straight from the horses mouth.
Burbank, Calif. – Nov 7, 2013—The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) and Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX) today announced an unprecedented deal for Marvel TV to bring multiple original series of live-action adventures of four of Marvel’s most popular characters exclusively to the world’s leading Internet TV Network beginning in 2015. This pioneering agreement calls for Marvel to develop four serialized programs leading to a mini-series programming event.
Led by a series focused on “Daredevil,” followed by “Jessica Jones,” “Iron Fist” and “Luke Cage,” the epic will unfold over multiple years of original programming, taking Netflix members deep into the gritty world of heroes and villains of Hell’s Kitchen, New York. Netflix has committed to a minimum of four, thirteen episodes series and a culminating Marvel’s “The Defenders” mini-series event that reimagines a dream team of self-sacrificing, heroic characters.
Produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Television Studios, this groundbreaking deal is Marvel’s most ambitious foray yet into live-action TV storytelling.
“This deal is unparalleled in its scope and size, and reinforces our commitment to deliver Marvel’s brand, content and characters across all platforms of storytelling. Netflix offers an incredible platform for the kind of rich storytelling that is Marvel’s specialty,” said Alan Fine, President of Marvel Entertainment. “This serialized epic expands the narrative possibilities of on-demand television and gives fans the flexibility to immerse themselves how and when they want in what’s sure to be a thrilling and engaging adventure.”
“Marvel’s movies, such as ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Marvel’s The Avengers,’ are huge favorites on our service around the world. Like Disney, Marvel is a known and loved brand that travels,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “With ‘House of Cards’ and our other original series, we have pioneered new approaches to storytelling and to global distribution and we’re thrilled to be working with Disney and Marvel to take our brand of television to new levels with a creative project of this magnitude.”
This new original TV deal follows last year’s landmark movie distribution deal through which, beginning with 2016 theatrically released feature films, Netflix will be the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios, including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature and Lucasfilm. Netflix members can currently enjoy a wide range of Disney, ABC TV and Disney Channel films and shows across the 41 countries where Netflix operates.
So… we’ll soon be able to watch Disney, Marvel and Lucasfilm movies and TV series on Netflix. I may end up ditching cable in 2016.
And if the Marvel/Netflix series are extremely popular, we may end up with an expanded Defenders roster based on the “minimum of four series” bit. It’s a great time to be a Marvel Zombie, no?
Good news for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes fans wanting more. Marvel and Diseny have produced a short five-episode mini series featuring your favorite characters. Each episode is only five minutes long and can be enjoyed in a variety of ways: YouTube, Marvel.com, Disney.com, Roku, Netflix, and Xbox. Thankfully all five episodes are available for viewing immediately without having to wait a day or even a week between shows.
Press release below, videos below that.
When floating bodies turn up, Coulson and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D must hunt down an elusive killer. No one is safe (bum bum buuuuummm) not even the team! Not even the team? Holy crap! They’re the ones I would automatically assume would be the safest, unless the creative team is planning on going all “Tasha Yar” on us. Oh well, I vote Ward as the first one off the island and maybe the rest will fall in line… fingers crossed things pick up with this episode though.
Upcoming episodes will have further One-Shot cameos after tonight’s return of Titus Welliver as Agent Blake and an episode that deals with the aftermath of Thor: The Dark World, which just so happens to have a sneak peek scheduled for tonight’s episode.
If I were to take a guess, all of these recent sales on Amazon is to get rid of stock to make room for some upcoming 2014 product. Just a guess. The latest notable sets to get hit with the discount hammer are:

Walmart.com is discounting 6873 Spider-Man’s Doc Ock Ambush by 20%. It’s now just $23.97, down from $29.99 MSRP. I just checked Amazon if they are doing the same thing, but they are not even selling the set (only third-part resellers). 6873 comes with Spider-Man, Iron Fist and emo Doctor Octopus.
Thor right around the Corner, Captain America and Guardians of the Galaxy coming up. The prospect of more Marvel figures, Winter Soldier, Rocket Raccoon. I’m just going to watch these a few more times before I come up with any jokes or comments. Now get me a Dr. Strange movie!

Oh, and I’ll work on updating the Cover Gallery with the original covers these homages are based on as time permits and let you know as requested.
Warner Bros. Interactive released the last trailer for the game featuring a voice over by none other than Stan Lee himself. And it’s awesome. Makes me want to play the game more so than ever before. The trailer is a tad spoilery though in that shows what I consider a plot development for what I assume is the final boss battle of the game. View at your own risk.
Also, a new poster came out:
The game comes out TODAY!
