The buzz is building, and I’m already more excited about a prospective “Agent Carter” TV series than I ever was about “Agents of SHIELD.” For one thing, we actually know Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, who will be reprising her “Captain America” role).

During press rounds for his latest film “Draft Day,” raisedRead More

I think everyone knows Marvel scored a smash hit with “The Avengers” back in 2012. Thus far, its sequel, “Age of Ultron”, has kept a pretty low profile. Other than the odd casting news here and there, fans have been left anticipating what the finished product is going to look like. With that being said, it has now been confirmed that an early glimpse of Marvel’s eagerly anticipated “Avengers” sequel will air on ABC next month.Read More

Comic-Con wouldn’t be Comic-Con without a major presentation from Marvel Studios, which has become the cornerstone of Hall H’s film lineup.
