  2. Mike Colter Talks About What It’s Like To Be Luke Cage, Gets Pumped For All The Grittiness

    Spoiler alert: it sounds neat.

    You ever notice how when people complain about traditionally white superhero characters being played by POC actors and they start bringing up traditionally black roles to whitewash in retaliation, it's usually either Shaft or Black Panther? Luke Cage tends to stay mostly below the radar—which is honestly surprising, especially considering that he'll soon be a very important part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
