So if you are into nerd culture at all you have watched the trailer for FOX’s new show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (which is a pain to type) produced by the great Joss Whedon. If you haven’t seen or heard about it then check your geek cred but here is the link.
First thought is that this show has a lot of potential to be really amazing. It’s more true to the original S.H.I.E.L.D. in that it isn’t using the hero’s from The Avengers but rather a new team that may or may not have super powers. Most importantly they are bringing back the affable, mild mannered Agent Coulson to give the show a boost of recognizability. So I have high hopes for this show.
Okay in a nice momentary and embarrassing lapse of nerd cred, I for some reason thought this was on FOX. Hey I’m not to proud to admit a screw up (if I was I would be lying all the time!) Right-o then, it’s on Disney owned ABC, which means it should be good.
I take offense to this…but admit it’s all true
An amazing scene that focuses on the day in the life of Steve Rogers. I wish they included this in the original cut.
IGN does another REWIND of the newest AVENGERS trailer. Warning, potential plot spoilers included. Enjoy!
If you didn’t catch it during the game, here’s the Avengers Super Bowl spot (extended version). It’s ripe with new details and glimpses to analyze and gush over until May. One of my favorite shots has to be at 42s, the emphasized sound of each hero’s weapon as the camera pans around is a very nice and epic touch. May 4th can’t come soon enough.
During the Twitter live chat yesterday, Marvel released a 10 second teaser of the new Avengers trailer that will be aired during the Super Bowl this Sunday. Check it out:
Here’s your first look at Marvel Avengers #20, which will be out in December!
The latest and greatest roster of Avengers head down the rabbit hole to find out who is behind the all-new H.A.M.M.E.R. in your first look at Avengers #20! Just when the world thought it was safe, Norman Osborn has recruited a powerhouse team of new Dark Avengers and he’s out for revenge. Combined with the might of the former leaders of H.Y.D.R.A. and A.I.M., the Avengers will need serious firepower to tackle this threat. Luckily, that’s where their new recruits come in. Get in on the action, courtesy of the red-hot creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Daniel Acuña this December, in Avengers #20!

Looks like a weird family photo. Everyone just looks a little off.
‘The whole enterprise is falling apart. Egos, tempers, uneasy alliances and bad attitudes are threatening the group, and failure would be catastrophic.’ – EW
Chris Evans aka Captain America, and Robert Downey Jr. aka Tony Stark/Ironman
Scarlett Johansson aka Black Widow, and Jeremy Renner aka Hawkeye.
Chris Hemsworth aka Thor with Joss Whedon, RDJ, and Chris Evans on the set of Avengers.
With IRON MAN 2′s multiple (and excessive) references to the upcoming 2012 AVENGERS, the mania for this ensemble superhero extravaganza is blowing up like a nuclear bomb. Can it possibly live up to the hype? Here a couple of great fan-made posters imagining the AVENGERS assembling for the first time. I’m sure many more are to come. With Joss Whedon attached to the project, it dramatically increases the chances that it won’t suck (he rocks!). Does this get you excited?:
