    ScarJo you poetic and noble land mermaid.

    We've already seen the official Age of Ultron poster and RDJ's Iron Man poster, but now we have the only poster we care about, let's be real: the ScarJo poster. She's bringing the Tron realness. I can't get enough of this new uniform.

  4. Samuel L. Jackson (as Nick Fury) Is Not Impressed With Captain France in Winter Soldier International Marketing

    Samuel L. Jackson is contractually required to drop one F-bomb per appearance.

    Hey, guys, come on, those are some pretty tired stereotypes—what? Oh, this is from a French show called Le Grand Journal? Nevermind, this is awesome self-deprecating humor. Way to go, France. Still, the absolute best part of this is watching Samuel L. Jackson's reactions. I don't think he had to dig too deep for the disapproving looks.

  5. Cap, Fury, and Black Widow Get Winter Soldier Posters as the Falcon Stands in the Corner and Sighs

    What It Says On the Tin

    The full posters are behind the jump, because Black Widow exudes an almost religious majesty in hers that I don't want to spring on an unsuspecting reader. If you have sunglasses, put them on now. Don't worry, Falcon. You're still a newbie. It won't be too long before you get a poster of your very own. I hope.

  7. A Little Love For The Bald Characters Of Pop Culture

    Meanwhile...

    A friend was lamenting to me just last night there weren't enough bald characters to dress up as for Halloween. These creations from Mr. Peruca prove otherwise. He calls the series, "Notorious Baldies." Much like with footwear, apparently heads are pretty distinct. Even without their faces.

  8. How Nick Fury Got His Eyepatch

    Supergirly

    As someone who has only recently developed the skills for an occasional application of eyeliner and shadow, the mysteries of the mascara wand seem dark and foreboding. Maybe it's just the flashbacks to being nigh-on attacked with one when some well meaning friends found out I was makeupless an hour before prom, but I can really relate to markmak's Fury here.

  10. Copies of David Hasselhoff’s Made For TV Nick Fury Movie Are Going for $70 And Up on Ebay; We Cackle

    Excelsior!

    This is not a joke. Due to, one can only assume, the popularity of The Avengers, DVD copies of Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., a 1998 made for TV movie based on the Marvel Comics character, is now worth $70 and up on Amazon.com. Used. If you want a new one, that'll set you back at least $120. Lets hope this doesn't give David Hasselhoff any more funny ideas. Previously in Television Movies

  12. The Avengers, Redesigned as a Part of Japanese Folklore

    Japan :D

    We here at The Mary Sue are all in favor of great tastes that taste great together. Who doesn't like a crossover you can really sink your teeth into, especially when it comes to the well-worn territory of The Avengers? Fear not, comrades at arms. For those wishing this summer's box-office bunker-buster had a little more samurai spirit amidst its sound and noise, the Internet has got you covered! Artist Alex Mitchell, who has previously applied his knowledge of traditional Japanese yōkai, oni, arms, and armor to DC's Justice League, here takes a more historical, but no less fantastical, approach to the current Avengers ensemble. Beyond the obvious appeal, there's a carefully considered wealth of detail in these re-imaginings that compliments each character, allying them dutifully with Japanese cultural archetypes and real historical figures. Mitchell has even put thought into name translation, and a bit of alternative backstory for each. Now tell us this isn't one anime-ification you would be thrilled to see.

  16. David Hasselhoff Maintains he is the Best David Hasse – I Mean, the Best Nick Fury

    Excelsior!

    You may not remember, but in 1998 there was a little made for TV movie called Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., starring David Hasselhoff. And the Hoff says that not only is the version of the character in The Avengers less true to the original vision of Stan Lee, it was also stolen from him: he was promised after NF:AoS.H.I.E.L.D. that he'd be playing the character forever. Careful, Mr. Hasselhoff. You're starting to sound an awful lot like Reb Brown, who played Captain America in two '70s made for TV movies (one of which was called Captain America II: Death Too Soon) but was better known for his starring role in Space Mutiny (as popularized by my favorite episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000) and got a bug up his butt after Captain America: The First Avenger came out. And worse than that: you risk the ire of Samuel L. M. F. Jackson. Says the Hoff:

  20. Samuel L. Jackson Says: S.H.I.E.L.D. Movie on Its Way

    In an interview with Radio Big Boy, Samuel L. Jackson revealed that:

    The Avengers' should start shooting some time next year, and then some time after that there’ll be a big 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' movie.

    That's right. A S.H.I.E.L.D. movie.

    For those unfamiliar (and I had to go nose around on Wikipedia in order to make sure I had my facts straight), this would be something like Samuel L. Jackson playing an immortal James Bond who fights things from other dimensions.

    Try to tell me how that wouldn't be awesome.
