Some news for us Arrow fans. We've already seen Summer Glau this season. Now another Firefly alum will be showing up. The former Dr Simon Tamm, Sean Maher, will arrive later this season playing Shrapnel. The comic version of Shrapnel is actually made of metal and has super strength, so I'm curious to see the new take on the character. Here's hoping Maher and Glau share a scene.


Check out some fan-shot footage from the football scene filmed for the Man of Steel sequel.

Sir Ben Kingsley said (and Marvel films president Kevin Feige confirmed) that he's not done with Marvel just yet: "It's a secret Marvel project. I'm not allowed to say any more, you're going to have to wait and see."
My bet is that he's doing a One-Shot for an upcoming disc release, most likely for when Thor: The Dark World gets a home release.

When I read that James Spader was cast as the villain in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, I had assumed that he was going to be just a voice. Then Spader said he was in preparation trying to figure out "how the hell I’m gonna fit in this Ultron character!" In an interview with Huffington Post, Kevin Feige has confirmed that Spader is more than just a voice. "Well, I think it will be more than a voice role -- we'll be capturing his face and his body to create a whole performance. He's a very unique and incredibly exciting and unpredictable actor. And Ultron in the comics is a robot, but what's cool about him in the comics -- and certainly how Joss Whedon is interpreting him for the movie -- is that he is much more than just a robot. That he's infused with much character. And I don't want to say too much, but you can imagine James Spader will be very dynamic in his portrayal of this character.
HP: So he won't be doing a robot voice, I assume.
KF: [Laughs] "We did not hire James Spader to do a robot voice."
I am intrigued.

I've posted before about how Marvel films regained the rights to Daredevil, Blade, Ghost Rider and Punisher. Will any of them factor into the Cinematic Universe? More from Kevin Feige: "We’re trying to figure out what to do with Daredevil now. Punisher could show up at one point. You know, once we get characters back into the Marvel fold we don’t want to do something right away, we want to do the smart thing at the smart time."
In my last update, I told how Marvel is going to do 60 hours of new programming between four new series and a miniseries. A Punisher film may not fit well into the film continuity going right now (it'd have to be rated R), so I say devote one of those shows to Frank Castle and sell it to HBO. It could still be set in the same film universe, but with the freedom to be what The Punisher should be.

Feige continues to be a wealth of information, this time on the subject of a much anticipated character debut:
"Doc Strange, as I've been saying for years, is a movie I believe we should make -- we're just figuring out how to make it a great movie. It is in active development right now. Whether that's one of the movies we announce for 2016 or 2017, we have to see. I think it'll be the middle of next year before we announce officially what the post Ant-Man films will be."

I'll leave you with a big potential spoiler for Thor: The Dark World's end credits teaser and how director Alan Taylor isn't really happy about it. Highlight to read.
Bleeding Cool asked Alan Taylor if he filmed the mid-credits scene for Thor: The Dark World, and he responded by saying, "I absolutely did not. I am very happy to not take responsibility." Very happy not to take responsibility? That doesn't sound good. The interview continues with the site asking Taylor if James Gunn directed it, and it's pretty obvious that Alan Taylor isn't pleased with the scene in his movie.
Bleeding Cool: So was that James Gunn?
Alan Taylor: I wouldn’t blame it on James Gunn.
BC: Blame?
AT: Er… I wouldn’t attribute it to James Gunn… it’s clearly his sets and his characters…
BC: So you’re not quite comfortable with it?
AT: I am very happy not to take responsibility for that…
BC: It’s a different tone for sure, huh?
AT: It’s a different tone. I would have shot it differently. But I think it’s cool that it reaches out and touches that other universe. That universe is coming. The Guardians universe is really cool and wacky… but that sequence in the credits, I would say, is the only part of the movie where I’m happy to give the credit away.
Bleeding Cool also talked to Kevin Feige, and he confirmed that James Gunn did direct the mid-credits scene, and it was filmed "within the last three to four weeks."

I for one can't wait to see it in a couple of weeks.

That Alan Taylor guys is kind of a douche. Guess we can count him out from directing any other Marvel films.

Yeah, I agree. If you want to be a part of the Marvel film universe, you need to be a team player.

So, I read in a Thor review that he's directed a bunch of Game of Thrones... I've only seen about half an hour of the show, but maybe that's why he's got such a big head about it? You'd think signing on to a major project for Disney/Marvel would get you to check some ego at the door, but I'm no less excited to see The Dark World.

I'm still concerned that so many characters are crammed in, they may all just feel like cameos, but like Gunner, I liked First Class so I'll still go see it.

Got back from the new Thor a bit ago. It was incredibly fantastic. Go see it and make sure to stick around for both end credit bonus scenes. I'd elaborate more but tired and time for bed. Got a bit of juicy news I'll share in the weekend update.

I might as well take this moment to share what I liked and was a little disappointed with in Thor 2. Though I'll spoiler it all out.

What I loved:
Most everything.
But besides that I really liked the first after credits moment with The Collector, for two reasons. One, the Collector is fucking awesome. And two, because it revealed that the gems on the Infinite Gauntlet aren't just little things that are similar to the Tesseract, they ARE the fucking Cosmic-level weapons. So the Tesseract is the Mind gem, the Ether is the power gem, and I assume the Eye of Avalon and the Book of the Vishanti are going to come up as the time/space and reality gems. And it makes sense, since when Thor blasted the Ether it shattered into gem fragments. Also, Odin says that "Most artifacts appeared as stones..." OH DAYUM!
I also liked the end fight a lot. It didn't really make sense how they stopped Malacath, but besides that it was great.


And there were just a couple of things I didn't like as much, that I'll list in order of spoiler levels.

First of all I did not like how Star Wars-y the Dark Elves were. They had fucking laser guns 5 thousand years ago, and NO Asgardian went "GEE, THAT'S A GOOD IDEA! LET'S GET SOME FUCKING GUNS SO WE DON'T HAVE TO FIGHT IN CLOSE COMBAT!" It felt super out of place.

Next I wasn't a huge fan of how much they pushed the Jane/Thor love thing. It still doesn't make a whole lot of sense, since they knew each other for all of three fucking days.

And the big one for me was the whole Loki death thing. It came as a big shock to me that they would do it, and I really liked the idea, but NOPE! Not even FIVE FUCKING MINUTES LATER they have to go "OH DON'T WORRY FANGIRLS, HE'S NOT DEAD!" Which completely took all of the wind out of the sails for that scene. Suddenly, all the emotion is gone and nothing of consequence has happened.

I was not a big fan of the first Thor movie...but I might give it a shot in the end.

Ender's Game...not so much...

Enders game did a surprising lot with the time they had. They changed some plot points and the ending a bit but I was happy with the movie overall. Also, Bean seriously looks and has similar mannerisms to my second son.

CW is said to be developing a show based on, of all characters, Hourman. While in the comics, Hourman would take a pill or use a patch to give himself superpowers for one hour, this version will have an Hourman that gets visions of events from one hour into the future. Here's the details:
Hourman centers on a brilliant-yet-troubled pharmaceutical analyst who discovers that the visions that have plagued him since childhood are actually glimpses of tragic events occurring one hour in the future. Determined to win back his ex-wife and son, he heroically prevents these tragedies from unfolding, finding both purpose and redemption along the way.
Hourman's not that obscure; he's a Golden Ager from the early 1940s who's been affiliated with the Justice Society and the JLA. CW has done good by Arrow, so I'll give this show a chance too.

Judging from the trailer of Captain American: The Winter Soldier, there looks to be a SHIELD power struggle between Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury and Robert Redford's Alexander Pierce. The word is that the back end of the first season of the Agents of SHIELD series may incorporate that cinematic storyline into the show. This could only help the show improve in my opinion.
As for Winter Soldier, if you're jonesing for more film footage, then go see Thor: The Dark World in 3D to catch a five minute preview of the film.

More on Agents of SHIELD: the November 19th episode is supposed to have a connective storyline to Thor: The Dark World.

Rumors continue to circulate around the Man of Steel sequel. The latest say that actors are testing for both Nightwing and Wonder Woman. I'll still wait until Zach Snyder's camp releases an official word before I take it as fact or not.

While Deadpool does have an attached director in Tim Miller, Miller says they're still awaiting the elusive green light. The primary hangup is that the film will have to be rated R, and Fox is dragging their feet on the matter.

Director James Mangold and Hugh Jackman are reportedly in negotiations for a sequel to The Wolverine. While I thought it was better than Origins, I still wasn't too impressed with Logan's recent outing. But the box office receipts (more so from overseas) deem it a major success. Hugh Jackman is 45. If this film happens, I wouldn't expect it until 2016 at the earliest. I say if they must do it, end the Wolverine saga with an Old Man Logan film or just move him over to the forthcoming X-Force film.

Michael Fassbender suited up for X-Men: Days of Future Past.


Here's a couple of new stills from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. To me, I'm betting that's Spidey finding a way to short circuit Electro.


Speaking of, want to know when we can see a trailer for the film? Director Marc Webb elaborates:

If you don't speak Dwarvish, look for it December 13 before the next Hobbit movie in 3D.

I previously reported on how Marvel is prepping four new comic based shows and a miniseries. I can now tell you that the four shows will be based on Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist. Each series will run for 13 episodes. The miniseries will combine the four into a new version of The Defenders. This will all be Netflix programming and will start rolling out sometime in 2015. In addition, Marvel says they are prepping another show for ABC (rumored to be based on Peggy Carter) as well as more programming for Disney (while no word yet on what, my money is on a Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon).


So, DC and Warner Bros., how's that Justice League movie coming along?

I'll leave you with the first mini-sode of the Lego Marvel animated series. A Faceful of Danger!, and also this modified Thor: The Dark World standup that was actually used at a theater in China.
