Stan Lee to Play “Big Role” in Upcoming Episode of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

stan-lee-slice-01

Is it really a “Marvel” movie without Stan Lee?  His cameos may not be a good luck charm, but they’re usually a fun moment when handled correctly (otherwise, they’re a distraction).  But he’s going to get more than a cameo on a Marvel product that more than needs his help.  The celebrated comics writer and Marvel mascot will be swinging by ABC’s ailing Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Lee tells THR that he’ll have a “big role”.  The details of the role are unclear, but he’ll likely appear on an episode on February 4th.  That’s still subject to change, but a February date wouldn’t surprise me considering that it’s sweeps.

Hit the jump to see Lee with several members of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast.  The show returns tonight with all new episodes.  And if you can’t get enough Lee, he’s starring in the animated movie Stan Lee’s Mighty 7, “in which he mentors a group of superheroes while writing about their adventures in comic books.”  The movie premieres on Hub Network on February 1st at 8pm.

ABC has released a new promo for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Cobie Smulders makes an appearance to bridge from The Avengers to the new show: “The Battle of New York was the end of the world.  This is the new world.”  That launches into new footage of the S.H.I.E.L.D. team in action, scored by “Soldier’s Angel.”  Guns and helicopters are nice, but since I was always going to check out S.H.I.E.L.D., I am ready to see how Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen arc out the series in the long form—not to mention episodes full of the pepper dialogue I expect from a Whedon show.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres Tuesday, September 24 at 8pm on ABC.  Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, and Elizabeth Henstridge star.  Watch the new spot after the break.

Networks are preparing to unleash their fall shows, and ABC has one of the most-anticipated with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  The network has released two new, vastly different promos.  The first is Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) briefly and dryly describing the other main characters.  You can almost hear Gregg groaning at the terrible copy.  The other promo is a standard TV spot that does a much better job of quickly explaining the premise and showing off a bit of the action.  It’s the one that makes September feel much further away.

While at Comic-Con to debut the show’s pilot for fans, executive producers Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen, who co-write the pilot, talked about the biggest challenges in adapting the Marvel universe on a TV budget, finding a nice balance between stand-alone episodes and mythology, the rules and guidelines that Marvel has set, making the show accessible for people who aren’t familiar with the Marvel universe, connecting the Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) character to Iron Man 3, whether any costumed characters will ever show up, and just how far ahead they’ve plotted their story arc.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

The Dark Horse Joss Whedon panel definitely drew a huge crowd of Whedonites Friday night. Tthe panel basically turned into an hour of great back and forth questions and answers between Whedon and the fans. Whedon has claimed his rightful place as one of the demigods of Comic-Con, having earlier that day taken par tin the panel for his new ABC television series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Despite the crowd’s warm reaction to the pilot episode, Whedon still has to fight against the fatigue of his own bustling and insane career at the moment.

After a slight introduction from Dark Horse editor Scott Allie, Whedon got underway, Starbucks coffee in hand, talking about everything including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Angel, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog, The Avengers and The Avengers 2, and Much Ado About Nothing.

With Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. set to have its big Comic-Con panel in Ballroom 20 on Friday, ABC has released a new featurette focusing on Agents Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) and Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge).  Henstridge describes the pair as having “a brother-sister relationship” with Simmons handling the bio-chem while Fitz focuses on the gadgetry.  It looks like the writers took a “Q”-like character, split it in two, and created what looks like a really fun dynamic.

The Comic-Con posters keep on rolling out as Legendary has unveiled a great-looking one-sheet for Gareth EdwardsGodzilla, and Marvel has also revealed a new poster for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  I don’t know if the Marvel poster will be available on the Con floor or if it’s just an online announcement piece, but it’s fairly tame.  Godzilla, on the other hand, will have people behaving like wild animals at the Legendary booth.  That’s not reasonable behavior, but it’s admittedly a very cool poster, and I hope I can get my hands on one.  I just don’t want to risk getting destroyed in order to do so. [Update: The Godzilla poster is not a general release.  It's by Phantom City Creative, and will be on sale at the Mondo Booth (#936) on Friday.  The regular edition is limited to 275 and costs $45; the variant edition is limited to 100 and costs $70.  We've updated the article with both versions after the jump]

Hit the jump to check out the posters.  Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will have its panel on Friday, and premiere this fall on ABC.  Godzilla will have its panel on Saturday, and opens in 3D on May 16, 2014.

New Details about AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.; Will Weave Between the Movies; J. August’s Richard’s Character to Be Revealed at Comic-Con

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will come an important point in its marketing campaign when it arrives for its panel at Comic-Con.  We’ve seen the trailer, and it’s one of the most-anticipated shows of the fall season, but there are still plenty of questions.  Personally, mine is, “Can it possibly live up to expectations?”, but many are continuing to ask, “How is Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) coming back?”  Unsurprisingly, it’s a reveal that won’t be covered in the pilot.  According to EW, “his S.H.I.E.L.D. colleagues say he must ‘never know the truth’ about his death.” (cue sinister music)  Co-creator Jed Whedon says, “We can’t wait to pull the curtain back on that, but we’re going to take our time.”  If I had to guess, this means we’re going to get bread crumbs littered throughout the season, and then perhaps in the season finale there will be a huge cliffhanger related to his resurrection.

Marvel Finds Part of San Diego That Isn’t Plastered with Advertising; Brands It with AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Just about anywhere you look during Comic-Con, you’ll see advertising for some movie or TV series.  You can even see it on the flight in if a studio has taken over the windows for the Hilton Bayfront.  However, one part of the city that has remarkably gone untouched is the trolley system…until now.  Marvel has taken the red trolley, painted it black, and slapped it with the logo for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  The only thing that’s missing is Agent Coulson’s stern glare on the front of the train like a disapproving Thomas the Tank Engine.

Hit the jump to check out the trolley.  Marvel’s Agents of Shield will have its Comic-Con panel in Ballroom 20 on Friday, July 19th.  The series will be on Tuesdays this fall on ABC.
