Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Promo For “FZZT”

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.

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Promo For “The Asset”

The sneak peek for this weeks episode focuses on inter team development but the asset the title references is actually supposed to be a character named Dr. Franklin Hall… many will understand the gravity of this situation and the rest can google it.

Dr. Franklin Hall

Needs more goatee.

Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Promo For “0-8-4″

The second episode of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. airs tomorrow on ABC and after last weeks explosive debut, it seems Marvel and ABC are already trying to take it to the next level. Both Agent Coulson himself, series star Clark Gregg and Marvel.com’s executive editorial director Ryan Penagos have booth suggested viewers watch everything, credits included, saying “make sure you stay tuned until the end, proper Marvel style.” Eagle eyed fans will notice an easter egg at the end of the promo that could be a hint to what these teases are pointing to. I’ll tell you this, if my local Canadian affiliate pre-empts the end and I miss it I will be furious.

Coulson Lives In Promo For Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Coulson’s back and Joss Whedon has rewarded him with a new team and a sweet ride for screwing him over (with an snazzy death scene *SPOILERS!* Crap, I was supposed to say that first) in last summers blockbusting Avengers flick. I’ve been impatiently waiting to share this news and while the world was a buzz last week, ABC was reluctant to confirm picking up Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. until the weekend when all their ducks were in a row. This promo aired during the season finale of Once Upon A Time and I’m guessing it added a few views to that shows ratings for the night as they also launched the first phase of their MAOS viral campaign. I’m really looking forward to this and was pleased to see the apparent confirmation of a suspicion I had regarding the casting of J. August Richards and the secrecy surrounding his character. After the unfulfilled rumours of a Heroes For Hire show and the scrapping of AKA Jessica Jones, I’m pleased to believe that the potential for these concepts to be wrapped into Agents is even greater and that isn’t lost on Joss. I look forward to finding out how Coulson has managed to remain breathing, the possibility of finally getting an agent Phil figure and the increased probability of seeing a fig based on a certain unbreakable skinned hero. Fingers crossed the cancellation curse will skip this Whedon television outing. Oh, and that it’ll be good.

Review: 6868 Hulk’s Helicarrier Breakout

1. Set Overview

I hadn’t originally signed up to review of Hulk’s Helicarrier Breakout for two reasons, pricing and the uncertainty of how the Hulk would look in LEGO form. I volunteered for the Loki’s Cosmic Cube Escape set with a certain expectation of what that set would be and then the first pictures surfaced. I jumped ship and swam for the Helicarrier as fast as I could and I’ve never looked back. Other than a decent assortment of dark blue parts and an exclusive Iron Man print variant (circular ARC reactor FTW), I’ve found nothing of redeeming value in that set that couldn’t be found elsewhere. This set on the other hand piqued my interest instantly and became the only ‘must have’ of the super hero line. Don’t get me wrong I wanted all of the Marvel sets for one reason or another, but I had to own this set if it meant saddling up my polar bear, riding all the way down to the US of A and laying seige to the nearest LEGO store. I opted to order it online, then I waited to see if the nine year old in me would get to revel in the realization of Marvel and LEGO coming together or be as crushed as he was when they cancelled The A-Team…

Review: The Avengers

The Avengers Review

Marvel has been building up to this point since Nick Fury made his first appearance at the end of Iron Man in 2008. There have been ups and downs in the outings of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, but for the most part they’ve been strong offerings with any blemishes (I’m looking at you Iron Man 2) being forgivable when you look at the the franchise as a whole. To say I’ve been excited about this movie would be an understatement, but even more than the characters individual films this one has a lot to prove. So does it live up to the hype, the legacy and this long time comic fans expectations? The short answer is…

The Avengers Trailer Now Online!

You may or may not have noticed by now, but I really love super heroes so you can bet I’ve been anxiously waiting for this trailer to arrive. It’s just a teaser, but it’s great to see all the effort Marvel has put in to this massive undertaking finally pay off.

Thanks to Walter Boy for the heads up.
