Ahead of the Dublin International Film Festival where he presents Much Ado About Nothing, Joss Whedon had an interview with the Irish Times about Buffy, Firefly and this small bit below about growing up a Marvel fan.

“[The Marvel style] for me was a no brainer. My style was partially formed by reading Marvel. I got my visual rhythms from that. I do remember thinking: my God, there are just so many characters. Can we make a movie where they co-exist that doesn’t seem completely bonkers? The sheer tonnage was unbelievable.”


Actor Max Hernandez took to twitter to tease a return for Agent Sitwell. But is it for ABC's S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America: The Winter Soldier or something else? Sitwell was described as taking Agent Coulson's place following his "death" in The Avengers but with Coulson's return where does that leave his protege?




Jaimie Alexander continues to tease a love triangle between Lady Sif, Thor Odinson and Jane Foster in Thor:The Dark World.




Clark Gregg is geeking out over his final scene in the S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot.




In the latest issue of Total Film Magazine, Idris Elba reiterates that he's looking to explore Heimdall further, beyond his duties as guardian of the Rainbow Bridge.

"Who is Heimdall? Ok, so he guards this gate...but is there anything else? That's what I want to explore."

The lighting in the Agent Sitwell picture looks like a movie. That's probably for CA:TWS.

I bet you Agent Sitwell doesn't sit well when he accidentally sits on a cactus. Joking aside, that happens surprisingly more often than people think. :P

@Jollem Lol! That's a great picture! Chip 'n' Dale with Squirrel Girl.

small but good news

@themcdougalbugle, I don't see how he can direct Star Wars when they already hired Abrams.

This show I hope will feature other Marvel characters instead of seeing those suits & ties throughout the entire series.

Scrooge McDuck should be with iron man... not with "always broke" parker.

even in that area they have more cool characters to offer than the competition.

Jollem - 2/16/2013, 5:06 AM
@thespiderkat - i think scrooge mcduck has money signs in his eyes for spidey because spidey is marvel's flagship character and has been very profitable for many, many years, unlike iron man

also, if you'll note, every single marvel character in the pic is either in their classic or original look, except for iron man. that goes to show how the movie version is the one most people know about as iron man has never really been a popular character in the comics

Gotta love Whedon. Any way he might have a lengthy chat with Mark Webb? God knows Webb needs it.
TheAbomination - 2/16/2013, 6:56 AM
Team Sif or GTFO!!!
Jollem - 2/16/2013, 7:07 AM
@FOOM - maybe the marvel studios folk need to have a sit-down with marc webb on how to make an original and non-cookie-cutter cbm. they really hit a slump after iron man 1 :)
