Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan Marvel Cinematic Universe MCU phase III
Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan abstractly talk about what they'd like Captain America 3 to explore in Phase 3 on the This Week In Marvel podcast.

Kevin Feige tells ScreenCrush that SpaceKnight ROM will probably never appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe due to licensing issues. We may seem some other SpaceKnights but not ROM specifically.

"I think there are legal issues with Rom. I think Rom is owned by a toy company or something. I think we have Spaceknights, but we don’t have Rom. I think they did some standalone Spaceknights comics at some point. ROM, I believe, was a licensed deal. Like G.I. Joe and Transformers back in the day."

Over at TV Line, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. creative team of Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen talk about the recent Agent Ward (Brett Dalton) revelations and what that means for the show moving forward. Particularly, on whether Ward is actually a "triple-agent" and is going to be revealed that he's been using the Night-Night gun and is still one of the good guys.

"May asked [Coulson], ‘What are we going to do now?’ and he says, ‘Survive”– and survival is a big part of it...Even worse for all and known to none, is the fact that Agent Ward is playing for the other side. There will be some tension to play, having this snake in the grass. You’ll learn a lot more [about Ward's] true agenda. You’ll get a glimpse of a side of Ward we didn’t know was there."

Agent Ward is a triple agent

MrBatmor - 4/20/2014, 6:17 AM

HAIL HYDRA...

Arrowhead77 - 4/20/2014, 6:17 AM
Its going to be lame if he is still with SHIELD this whole time, he is great as a villain.
Bl00dwerK - 4/20/2014, 6:23 AM
I think I'm gonna give Agents of SHIELD another shot...
BIGBMH - 4/20/2014, 6:25 AM
No ROM?! How can you do the MCU without ROM?!

Wait, who's ROM?
Havensent - 4/20/2014, 6:26 AM
Who dare posts under the house of Haven above?!!

I represent the house of, Haven you winged buffoon, I'll have you know!
ProfessorX - 4/20/2014, 6:26 AM
He's killed about 10 people in cold blood. No way is he still SHIELD.
charlie2094 - 4/20/2014, 6:28 AM
There's no way he's SHIELD anymore, how many people has he killed? Prisoner let out? Tech stolen etc...no coming back from that...

ROM? Never heard of him/her/it :P
Bodwulf - 4/20/2014, 6:40 AM
Wish Marvel would buy the rights to Rom. Not like the toy company is doing anything with them.
TheOverlord - 4/20/2014, 6:41 AM
[frick] ROM - give me my Black Panther movie!
InfiniteMonkey - 4/20/2014, 6:45 AM
ROM? LoL! Who bloody cares!?

Give us Dr. Strange and most especially Black Panther.

Don't be afraid to put a Black man in the lead Marvel because it only means we are that much closer to an Asian superhero when you do...albeit 50 years from now.
BlinkyStark - 4/20/2014, 6:48 AM
what is rom? who is rom?

where is my strange movie?

agents of who the hell watch this crap
GliderMan - 4/20/2014, 6:48 AM
May should have been HYDRA. Can't stand her.
ROMSpaceknightisGOD - 4/20/2014, 6:50 AM
ROM was an EXCELLENT comic in the 80's that had a great storyline, when a lot of the main superheros comics were boring, ROM was there
TheOverlord - 4/20/2014, 6:50 AM
FYI I did some digging. ROM is owned by Parker Brothers, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hasbro, the same company that owns G.I. Joe, Transformers, and a lot of board games. Hasbro is heavily active in the film business, having their own studio. They have traditionally worked with Paramount (Transformers, G.I. Joe), but did Battleship with Universal and have projects in the works with several other studios (Monopoly, Candyland, Ouija, etc.). So while they may not be doing anything with ROM at the moment, they possibly could. And I'm sure they would be open to doing it with Disney/Marvel if the deal made sense. Then again, I have to assume everyone is out of ideas by the time they get around to a ROM movie...
ROMSpaceknightisGOD - 4/20/2014, 6:51 AM
He was kinda like the Silver Surfer, he gave up his human side to become this spaceknight
TheOverlord - 4/20/2014, 6:51 AM
Correction: Hasbro has their own production company., not their own studio. (Duh.)
ROMSpaceknightisGOD - 4/20/2014, 6:55 AM
A quote from a respected site:

"The series lasted for 75 issues from December 1979 to February 1986 and Rom's regular encounters with mainstream heroes and villains establishing him as part of Marvel continuity"
MrMartinMarvel - 4/20/2014, 7:02 AM
What the [frick] is ROM and why do people like it?
Shroombeast - 4/20/2014, 7:13 AM
Who the [frick] is ROM? Give me Doctor Strange, Carol Danvers (preferably as Captain Marvel) and another Hulk movie.
Marvel1997 - 4/20/2014, 7:15 AM
@MrSloth- I'm guessing Any Age of Ultron filming that is going on at the moment would be taking place somewhere indoors with lots of green screen. I don't think they are shooting anything outside atm because we would be getting spy set pics... Unless they are in a very remote area but I doubt it. Filming is most likley occurring indoors right now. As a matter of fact I don't think any filming has been taking place recently because it's the easter weekend (Good Friday)
pepe - 4/20/2014, 7:25 AM
I got waisted on Rum once...
SuperCat - 4/20/2014, 7:37 AM
Damn. Forgot about ROM. Used to love that comic. Wanted the action figure when I was a kid. Cheap ass parents.



RamonSuarez - 4/20/2014, 7:40 AM
Marvel is so hot now.
frova - 4/20/2014, 7:54 AM
I feel like this should be three separate articles
marvel72 - 4/20/2014, 7:55 AM
rom comic book was alright,i did enjoy the dire wrath war.
Brainiac13 - 4/20/2014, 8:04 AM
@MarkJ

0megaDaGod - 4/20/2014, 8:08 AM
Forget ROM

Where is Ja?

I'd love to hear what he thinks about all this

Also, AOS is da BOMB yo
BigBossKaz - 4/20/2014, 8:08 AM
I have an old Rom Comic. I never understood the appeal
Lhornbk - 4/20/2014, 8:16 AM
Wtf is a ROM, and who cares if it's ever in a movie?
Rom - 4/20/2014, 8:32 AM
Nice supercat ;)

ROM is the greatest of the spaceknights.
OdinSon2k14 - 4/20/2014, 8:37 AM
Who's ROM?! Are you kidding me?! Forget the silly plastic toy, ROM Spaceknight was a BADASS!! Ask the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants who ROM is :D

http://www.comicvine.com/rom-31/4000-22242/

He sent the Blob flying with ONE punch!

Galactus!

http://www.comicvine.com/rom-26/4000-21869/

ROM and his band of spacebots sent him and Terrax packin'!!

Come on, get that legal mumbo jumbo out of the way and get ROM in this! It deserves this! Does Parker Brothers also have the rights to ROM's fellow knights, like Starshine, hammer fists, and javeline bot?!

First he brings Thor to the bigscreen...never mind if it was done totally right (absence of his huge foes), that's a minor issue. Now he gives thought, which is all I ask for, for another one of my collecting faves. Kevin...I love you, man :D!!

AoS keeps getting better and better, I'm really hoping it gets renewed for a second season.
dinkinflicka - 4/20/2014, 8:48 AM
Keep Ward a villain makes him way more interesting. I hated the guy till he turned. I always was hoping he and Skye would be killed off. Not sure what direction this show is gonna go but as long as it includes villains from the comics Im right there with it. It's been a thousand times better the last several episodes. I think next year they need to start the season after Christmas and go straight through no weeks off like what 24 did.
BigBossKaz - 4/20/2014, 8:51 AM
NO! @dinkinflicka!!!!

Skye must live!
mctrinket - 4/20/2014, 9:02 AM
Why would they ever waste time/energy/money on a ROM movie?
dinkinflicka - 4/20/2014, 9:02 AM
Skyes hot but they made her terribly annoying she is this shows Thea and Laurel from Arrow. Simmons verges on so annoying I hope she dies as well sometimes. The Whedons always write shows where female characters swoon over men a little too much. It's unreleastic. They got Blackout upcoming and bring back Blizzard and Graviton I'll be as happy as I could be.
Arrowhead77 - 4/20/2014, 9:06 AM
@Prof.X, I hope you are correct. I like the show, but I do not trust Jeph Loeb as a Tv producer.
Rom - 4/20/2014, 9:12 AM
If someone is interested to know whats happening with hasbro and rom
