Captain America is Coming Back! Let the Real Coverage Begin!

I know it isn’t news but extended trailers are always nice! I am really intrigued to see just how pivotal The Falcon and Black Widow are going to be. And will that lead to their own movies?

And of course I am not the only one thinking and talking about Captain America;). Surf & Sunshine is talking about what she learned about the Shield in her interview with the property master!

What great (and insightful) coverage have you found out there?

James Spader in Avengers: Age of Ultron

avengers2

There is some big Avengers news!!! The big bad has been announced. It is going to Ultron! And he is going to be played by the infamous James Spader.

I am so excited!!! I think Spader is perfect for the roll! It has been proven in his cold and calculating roll in Boston Legal and the Practice, not to mention the previews in the Blacklist. He does that odd, cold and calculating thing really and I think that is going to pair with Joss Whedon’s Avengers fabulously!!

Joss Whedon did an interview with Entertainment Weekly on how his Ultron will differ from the comic book version. A big thing I see is that Whedon is going to do what he does best and humanize Ultron by exploring his pain. This could be awesome!

I can’t wait!!! How about you? Do you think Spader is great casting or a flop?

Robert Downey Jr. & Avengers News

Robert Downey Jr. & Avengers News

Since the release of Iron Man 3, we have all been waiting with bated breath to see who was going to be returning for Avengers 2 (and other future Marvel movies). We now know that Robert Downey Jr. will be back! He has signed up not only for Joss Whedon’s Avengers 2 but also Avengers 3!!! And this isn’t rumor but actually from Marvel!

I had heard that Robert Downey Jr. wouldn’t be returning unless all the other stars received more money. I am under the assumption that he held strong to this demand so I am interested to see if this means more of the original will be in Avengers 2!

I also wasn’t aware that Avengers 3 was firmly happening so yay!!!

In other Robert Downey Jr. news: It appears that he has a $12 million marketing deal with HTC. I have say, I would watch that commercial!

Agents of SHIELD is Coming

I am so stoked that Agents of SHIELD has been picked up by ABC!!! There is a 30 second teaser trailer out but there is no date out yet as to when we can expect to see the series. I am so excited! They have a website and a Facebook, both saying it is coming soon.

The Avengers: Buffy Style

You all know that I love Joss Whendon and The Avengers and Buffy. But what would the intro to The Avengers have looked like if Whedon had done it Buffy Style;). I find the work on this piece amazing! And yes, I usually post music on Monday but the theme counts as music. Right?

Stan Lee on Avengers: Battle For Earth Game

Yes, it is a little cheesy but fun to see Stan Lee out there pushing the video games too;). I will be putting up my review soon;).

New Iron Man 3 Trailer!!

Ok, I am not as deep into the back story on Iron Man so I don’t see this and know everything…. I am not clear who the villain is but I am sure that NerdDad will be as soon as he sees this;). I am thinking War Machine paired with someone else but I am not sure at all.

I did see some stills where I saw the big stuffed bunny on the big explosion. I just want to say… Men in movies tend to go out and buy some sort of over sized stuffed animal when they find out they are going to be a dad. I don’t know but wonder if this a possibility. Paired with needing to protect the most important things? Just musing;).

Eep!!! Joss, S.H.I.E.L.D., TV, JedMo, Breathe….

I recently posted about Joss Whedon signing on with Marvel to do the next Avengers movie, tv series and over all influencing the universe right? But as we all know tv development deals means we may never actually see anything so I wasn’t getting my hopes up to see anything soon.

But hopefully not in this case!! ABC has ordered a pilot for S.H.I.E.L.D.!!! It is the live action series that Joss Whedon will direct but it gets better than that!!! Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen will be writing with him!!! And that is JedMo that helped him write Doctor Horrible’s Sing Along Blog and we all know that was phenomenal;).

There is so much more to S.H.I.E.L.D. than what we saw in The Avengers so I think there will be more than enough material to have a series that runs forever!!!

Yes, I am doing the happy dance while I am typing!!! I can’t wait to hear more!!!!

(HT: GeekMom)

More Avengers with Joss!!!

It is official!!! Joss Whedon is going to be writing and directing Marvel’s The Avengers 2. Woot! In addition to that he is also going to develop a live action series for tv!!!! He is also going to have a hand in the rest of the Marvel universe.

In addition to “Marvel’s The Avengers 2,” Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on the Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; and “Ant-Man.”

I am so excited!!! By the way, I really do believe that this just became final. Whedon said at the Firefly panel at Comic Con that he wasn’t signed on yet.

**Update: The release date for The Avengers sequel is May 1, 2015***
