Happy Halloween, Fangirls and Fanboys!
In celebration of our favourtite candy-based holiday, JK Rowling has authored and published a new short bit of writing, a sort of study on everyone’s least favourite professor, one Delores Jane Umbridge. If you have a Pottermore account, you can read it there, or you can scroll down.
For anyone who watched Agents of SHIELD last night, not only did you get a sneak peek at Age of Ultron but you also got to see a promo for Agent Carter
Here is a synopsis for the show:
Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger,” Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier”), who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren’t recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts.
But no one should ever underestimate Peggy.
It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Peggy a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field; putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – aka Captain America.
When old acquaintance Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, Marvel’s “Captain America: The First Avenger”) finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy – the only person he can trust – to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis (James D’Arcy, “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World”), to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for releasing these weapons of mass destruction. But Jarvis, who is a creature of habit and sticks to a rigid daily routine, is going to have to make some major life changes if he’s going to be able to keep up with Peggy.
If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse. And as she delves deeper into her investigation, she may find that those she works for are not who they seem, and she might even begin to question whether Stark is as innocent as he claims.
Agent Carter will be an 8 part miniseries that will air in January.
For anyone who watched Agents of SHIELD last night you go a sneak peak from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
I admit I would love to party with the Avengers, that looked like a fun time.
I avoided saying anything about the trailer when it first came out, because I really did not want to take away from it. I am sure we all have questions, why does Thor drop his hammer? Why is the Hulk fighting Iron Man? What happened to Captain America’s SHIELD? What brings back Nick Fury? We all know at some point Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch join the Avengers, so do they do it at the end of the movie? Do they ever find out that Coulson is alive?
I am sure we are all very excited for next May to see the movie, I am sure we will be getting more trailers and sneak peaks until then. We promise to keep you in the loop about anything that we hear.
To get ready for Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, coming out in less then a month I thought we would look at some of the new trailers that have been released.
The Return to District Twelve:
The movie will officially be in theaters on Nov 21, but tickets go on sale today.
Whoo-boy, has it been a big couple of days for Marvel movie announcements!
First, we get the news that Dr. Strange has been cast as none other than Benedict Cumberbatch…
Hoo-boy. These cannibals are spry, man.
Must be something they’re eating…
A lot actually happened in this episode, so let’s just jump on in.
You can now listen to another installment of the TFP Podcast! Beware of spoilers for your favourite TV shows, though, as this was recorded about a week and a half ago. So… Spoilers for season openers, but if you’re only an episode or two behind you might be fine.
Either way, CLICK HERE and enjoy!
Here we are back for another exciting episode of SHIELD, last week Coulson and May went under cover for to get a painting only to find out that Hydra has an really awesome face changing device. Also there was a really epic May fight between real May and fake May.
