  2. Marvel Teams With Netflix For Jessica Jones, Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist Original Series Leading To Team Mini-Series

    Oh My Stars and Garters

    Were you one of those people who cancelled their Netflix subscription after they tried that whole Qwikster thing? You might want to think about getting back on that train by 2015. That's when Marvel Entertainment will premiere their first original content on the service - four solo-character series to be following by a mini-series titled, The Defenders.

  3. People Try to Figure Out Who J. August Richards Is Playing In Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Think It Might Be Luke Cage

    Submitted For Your Approval

    Since the first trailer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. came out (I don't count the teaser-for-the-teaser that came out the day before, because that marketing trend is messed up) people have been trying to figure out who Angel alum J. August Richards is playing. The predominant theory? Luke Cage.

  4. Welcome to Level 7: Here’s the First Full Trailer for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

    We caught a quick look at some footage from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. already, but this is the first full trailer, and it's spectacular. It gives us a sense of the team and their dynamic without giving too much away in terms of story. We find out that Agent Coulson survived the events of The Avengers, but we don't find out how. This is just speculation, but is J. August Richards coming across as a little bit like Luke Cage? Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will air Tuesdays this fall.

  5. All Sides Suit Up To Negotiate the Future of Marvel… Maybe With Blade, Ms. Marvel, Black Panther, and The Runaways?

    Fact From the Vapor of Nuance

    If you've been seeing a lot of news stories lately where Robert Downey, Jr. casually says something to the effect of "I'm not going to be playing Iron Man forever" or "yeah, I'd be interested in seeing who else could be Tony Stark," it might be informative for you to remember that his contract actually is up to be renegotiated in this post Iron Man 3 era. These seemingly casual remarks are actually the first salvos in the epic game of moneyball that's about to be played between Downey and Marvel Entertainment over what he'll be paid to appear in The Avengers 2 and possibly The Avengers 3. This means that some news outlets are pulling out all their unnamed sources to talk some straight insider talk about the contract negotiations between Downey, all of his Avengers co-stars, and Marvel. So you should take this with a grain of salt, but one of those news outlets is claiming that Marvel is mulling over script ideas for some pretty exciting secondary characters.

  6. Which Whedon Alumn Just Joined S.H.I.E.L.D. in a Mystery Role?

    Excelsior!

    Aside from Clark Gregg, S.H.I.E.L.D. has an unusual dearth of veteran Whedon actors for a Joss-Whedon-created show, but according to TVLine's sources, J. August Richards is signed on to the production. Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer who graduated to become fans of Angel will remember him as Charles Gunn, member of Scooby Gang 2.0.

  7. Rosenberg Says A.K.A. Jessica Jones Show Still Possible, Let me Hoist My Hopes High Once Again

    Excelsior!

    Welcome to this post. Please enjoy this panel of Jessica Jones clocking Doctor Doom with a fire hydrant that she presumably just pulled out of the sidewalk. We're here to talk about the potential series AKA Jessica Jones that's currently somewhere in pre-production television land. There's lots of reasons why it should become a show, and apparently Marvel Entertainment hasn't quite given up on it yet.

  8. Plenty of Room for Luke Cage in AKA Jessica Jones

    Excelsior!

    Among the numerous television projects that Marvel has in some stage of the "getting done" process, there is AKA Jessica Jones, a series about the eponymous superheroine-turned-private detective from the comics series Alias. (No relation to the television show of the same name, in case you were confused.) Melissa Rosenberg has been tapped to adapt the concept, and she's no stranger to either adaptation or genre work. Her writing credits include Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, The O.C., Dexter, a few Twilight movies and even the infamous Birds of Prey television adaptation. Jessica Jones is an awesome character in and of herself, but her role in the Marvel Universe also includes a feisty relationship with Luke Cage, AKA Power Man, that eventually leads to love, parenthood, and marriage, in that order. As supporters of greater diversity in the comics world and in the parts of the comics world that get translated into other media, we'd be remiss if we didn't tell everybody excitedly that Rosenberg has confirmed that Luke Cage is definitely included in her vision for the series.

  9. White Luke Cage Is the Best Worst Idea (For a Comedy Sketch and Only a Comedy Sketch) Ever [Video]

    Just Go With It

    You know it's crossed the minds of some people who have really bad ideas, but even for those of us who don't see race, a white Luke Cage would be a bad idea. But a sketch about how bad of an idea? A good idea. (Nerd Bastards via Topless Robot)

  10. Isaiah Mustafa Meets With Marvel Over Luke Cage

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Isaiah Mustafa has made no secret of his fervent desire to play Luke Cage, the Harlem-based crime-fighter who, unlike most other Marvel superheroes, mostly fights regular old criminals instead of their costumed counterparts. He told Superherohype.com:
    Luke Cage has a lot going on. He's this man, he's got all these powers and abilities and he can use them to save whatever major city, but instead of doing that he uses them to help Harlem. He wants to fix his neighborhood, and that's what's so admirable to me. Instead of leaving and going someplace bigger, he stays right where he needs to be and tries to do the best that they can."
    According to Mustafa, the ball is in Marvel Entertainment's court at this point.
