Last year ABC gave writer-director Joss Whedon the go-ahead to shoot a pilot for a television show set in The Avengers universe, and Deadline reports that the network has picked up the show to series. Entitled Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the show will focus on — to no surprise — a group of agents from the fictional global law-enforcement agency S.H.I.E.L.D. The show will star Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, a character that has appeared in several of Marvel’s films up until this point. The character of Agent Coulson died in The Avengers (or so it seemed), but it’s not exactly clear how Whedon and his team plan to get around that particular hurdle.
Unless it’s set in a different time, pre-Avengers?
Goodrich Quality Theaters has come under fire this week after its Capital 8 theater in Missouri hired a fake gunman for an “Iron Man 3” screening during the opening weekend of the film. To be expected, the character, who wore full tactical gear and carried a fake gun, did not go over well as some patrons feared the worst.
When I saw this headline I had to do a double take! How could a movie theatre be so senseless when the Colorado theatre shooting is still so recent?
Recognize these photos? If you’ve seen Star Wars, you probably do.
This the abandoned set of Tatooine, Luke Skywalker’s home planet. A photographer accidentally stumbled upon the set, which sits in the Tunisian desert. They sit in perfect stillness, at the crest of the Sahara Desert, eaten away by dust and sand.
Saturday, May 4, was one month to the day that Roger left this earthly plane. In honor of Kentucky Derby weekend I am posting this photo of Roger and I proudly sporting our hats at Churchill Downs. There have been several photos of us wearing hats over the years. For some reason hats delighted us to no end. And Roger was particularly fond of some of the more outrageous hats we wore. That day while we were watching the races we were so pleased that we could wear our hats both in doors and out. You can’t wear a hat in a movie theater.
Very moving post on Chaz’s thoughts on the film critic world without her husband.
