Welcome back, True Believers!  Last week’s episode gave us an in-depth look at Agent Garrett’s, aka Bill Paxton’s, Hydra.  Fun was had by all as the charismatic team took over a S.H.I.E.L.D. installation and rallied behind the idea that the once nearly omnipresent agency was unraveling at the seams.  Meanwhile, the Agents tried to pick up the pieces and were met by Agent Koenig, aka Patton Oswalt, in a secret base set up by Nick Fury.  On tonight’s episode, the often mentioned “Cellist” (love interest of Coulson originally brought up in the Avengers movie) makes an appearance, played by Amy Acker.  Also, another villain from the funny books makes his Marvel “movie-verse” premiere.

War has changed and so too have the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Following last week’s episode and the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the agents are left without the resources of which they’ve become accustomed.  The series has begun to turn itself around with traitors, espionage, and revelations coming fast and heavy, throwing some unexpected curveballs our way.  Did I also mention that this episode sees the arrival of Agent Eric Koenig, played by comedian extraordinaire Patton Oswalt?  Can the agents defeat Hydra that have taken over S.H.I.E.L.D. bases across the world?  Will the show continue its hot streak moving forward?  Has Ward turned heel for real?  Hit the jump for our recap.

I think we can safely say that we are living in a golden age … a golden age of comic book movies.  From follow-ups to the Avengers franchise, to a newly rebooted Spider-Man series, to past and present X-Men uniting to fight giant robots, who would have thought we’d ever see any of this during the days when we were lucky to get a Blade movie once in a blue moon? Though with this glut of costumed heroes hitting the silver screen, it’s sometimes hard to keep straight what is rumor and what is fact.  Seems like the perfect time to walk through what has been confirmed and what is still rumor in the world of Marvel’s mutants, gods, and charismatic billionaires in iron suits.

Hit the jump for an overview of the future Marvel comics adaptations—from Marvel Studios, Sony Pictures, and 20th Century Fox—that we have on tap for the coming years.

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier now playing here in the States (I’ve seen it and it’s fantastic), rumors abound regarding what could take place in the next Cap film.  The directors of The Winter Soldier, Anthony and Joe Russo, have already signed on to return for Captain America 3 and have hinted toward the addition of the 1950s “psychotic” Captain America, who is, in a nutshell, “Captain America gone wrong”.  Whether or not this is the case is yet to be seen, and a lot can change between now and the film’s May 6, 2016 release date, but just in case, we thought it would be best to get you prepped and suited up regardless.

Hit the jump for a rundown of what the 1950s Captain America comics run entails, which just might serve as a Captain America 3 preview when the Marvel sequel rolls around.

By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggath!  If you even remotely recognize this statement, you may be familiar with Marvel’s biggest practitioner of the mystic arts, Dr. Strange.  Dr. Stephen Strange is currently the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Universe and ruminations have been coming in hard and fast about the good doctor in relation to the Marvel movie landscape.  It would seem at this point, with rumors ranging from Marvel bringing in Johnny Depp to discuss the character to Marvel studios looking at various directors to helm the project, that it’s not a question of if Strange will find himself joining the ranks of the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy, but when!  Don’t know much about the Master of the Mystic arts?

Well I’m sure we’ve all been singing “Hooked on a Feeling” for the better part of this week after the release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy trailer on Tuesday.  There have been numerous articles, including a few of our own, going into the protagonists of the story itself; who they are, where they came from, and where they may be going.  However, it seemed prudent to change things up a little and delve into those characters looking to cause trouble for the lovable raccoon and tree duo, to say nothing of the other three Guardians (played by Chris PrattZoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista).  Let’s delve into the murky underbelly of Marvel’s next big undertaking by looking at all of the villains that are set to make appearances in director James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy.  Hit the jump for an in-depth look at the baddies of the Marvel comics.

An Introduction to PREACHER: the Story, the Characters, and the Controversy

AMC has recently announced that they have begun development on a TV series adaptation of the graphic novel, Preacher, to executive produced by the team that brought us This Is the End, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.  Preacher has had a long and frustrating history with attempts at jumping to both the silver and small screens, coming extremely close thanks to directors and producers who loved the source material, but couldn’t quite push it to fruition.  With The Walking Dead being the television juggernaut that it is, along with Mad Men and Breaking Bad to name a few, AMC has become a great platform for cutting edge shows that can push the envelope, and Preacher should fit right in.  With a glowing endorsement from the original creator, Garth Ennis, on the upcoming series, I am very excited to see the show begin to develop and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce readers to the story, its characters, and what may make this the next big television success.  Hit the jump for more.

Among these old favorites, the film will also be bursting with new mutants who have yet to see the cinematic X-verse.  Collider thought this would be the perfect opportunity to walk you through some of these characters and give you a crash course on the new mutants you’ll be seeing in Singer’s epic time travelling mutant extravaganza!  Hit the jump to make introductions.
