I am having a real terrible feeling about the upcoming season 4 of Agents of Shield. In the past seasons they have really reduced some major Marvel characters from badass to worthless, and I fear that this will happen again.
ABC has released this trailer for the midseason premiere of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Titled “Aftershocks,” the episode will air on Tuesday, March 3.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Grant Ward, Chloe Bennet as Daisy “Skye” Johnson, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons, Nick Blood as Lance Hunter and Adrianne Palicki as Bobbi Morse.
The series is executive produced by Joss Whedon, Jed Whedon, Maurissa Tancharoen, Jeffrey Bell and Jeph Loeb.
This week was no exception. It was revealed at least that the blue alien whose blood was used to save Coulson was indeed a Kree , and that they are the ones who built this secret city everyone is now looking for. That is cool i guess. The Kree are also the ones who created the Inhumans , so perhaps we are getting a link to the Inhumans movie via Agents of SHIELD. Its things like that which keeps me watching the show. The dialog remains “Buffy” bad, and the characters are just MEH!!
The Skye character especially keeps going from useless to badass . She had a fight where she holds her own against Agent 33, and from watching earlier shows she should not have been able to do so. Are you gonna say that she could hold her own against Agent May in a fight ?? Really ??
The Fitz/Simmons story keeps dragging on. I wish both of them would die already.
Also, Hydra have Quinjets all of a sudden. That was pretty stupid, and pulled out of nowhere. Is Coulsons team really the only ones who are dealing with Hydra still ?? Guess no one else cares .
It started with a clip of The Avengers, along with Maria Hill and James Rhodes. Some of the group call bullshit on the whole “Whosoever be worthy” spiel about lifting Thors hammer. So he lays down the challenge, and lets them try. It was quite amusing actually .Especially when Captain America actually makes the hammer budge. The look on Thors face was brief, but priceless Then ULTRON 1 spoils the good mood. I assume its ULTRON 1 . From there they go into the trailer we have all seen.
I had a cam version up earlier, but now i have the good stuff !!
Im looking forward to this. Hell, im looking forwards to ALL the Marvel movies. But this really wasn’t worth having to sit through another Agents of SHIELD episode…….
Chadwick Boseman is ‘Black Panther’
Benedict Cumberbatch is Dr Strange
Edit ; Brie Larson is Captain Marvel
Vin Diesel is BLACK BOLT ( of the INHUMANS ) maybe ??
Josh Brolin is Thanos ( for some reason )
The space angle is the real key here i think, and one character that i can see uniting all these movies before Avengers : Infinity Wars is the bad ass character, that just happens to my favourite character : ADAM WARLOCK
Who will play this iconic character ?? Matthew McConaughey ?? Bradley Cooper ??? Kevin Bacon !!!!!
I don´t know…. but not having him would be a goddamned travesty
He will most likely be introduced in Guardians 2. He is the keeper of the Soul Gem. Inhumans are on the dark side of the moon, but Feige dropped a hint that we “might” be seeing the INHUMANS sooner rather than later in the MCU. You can put money on Black Bolt ( Vin Diesel) appearing in GUARDIANS of The Galaxy 2 !! Take it to the bank. Wonder who will play Medusa. She is Black Bolts wife and mouth piece. I’m gonna throw Amanda Seyfried out there as a contender
Perhaps Black Bolt already has an infinity gem ? We know Asgard has the cosmic cube ( will be taken in Thor Ragnarok i guess ) Like i said, Adam Warlock has the Soul Gem. So yeah, maybe The Inhumans already possess a gem ?? And its not such a stretch to guess that Dr Strange might be in possession of the reality gem ??Or at least he gets it during his solo movie. He and Silver Surfer was pretty big pawns in Adam Warlock’s plot to defeat THANOS. So that leaves the one the Nova Core has, and the ether ?? I can’t think straight. Might be forgetting some parts……
So Captain Marvel will be the Carol Danvers character. She got her powers originally from the first Captain Marvel ( Mar-Vell ) a KREE warrior. Those blue punks who fight the Skrull , those green pricks.
Im guessing that will be the origin they go with in the movies also, seeing as everything seems connected by the whole alien/space thing. Even Agents of SHIELD are doing that, and the alien that was used to save Coulson and that is now turning him batshit crazy , was in fact BLUE. BLUE = KREE = Mar-Vell = Captain Marvel.
Thats me ranting away. Meanwhile the new Avengers line up after Age of Ultron will be : Hawkeye, Vision, Ant-Man , Wasp, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. Hulk leaves, and Ironman and Cap have a falling out which leads into their little Civil War movie. WHOOOOOOOOOOO CARES!!!!
Im getting way ahead of everyone now, but WHAT IF Avengers : Infinity Wars lead directly into SECRET INVASION 🙂
PHASE 4 ?? They have to get to the Skrull at some point…….. after the credits the heroes finds that one of their dead buddies was an undercover skrull…. duh duh duh …… It was the thing that got the heroes back together after the whole Civil War thing….. just saying…..
That is all
For the past week i have not been doing any writing on this site. I have been in a bad place as of late…… a horrible place….
And the internet connection there was TERRIBLE !! This caused problems for me of course, but enough bullshit. I guess the last thing i wrote about was the casting of Dave Bautista as the henchmen “Jinx” in the Untitled Bond 24. Soooooo, what been up since. Well, quite a lot, so lets do a Razzie Round Up !!
Agents of SHIELD episode 4
Even though the promo made it look gawd awful, i watched episode 4 of Agents of SHIELD. It was not as bad as i had feared it would be , but it did have some WTF´s . Like Coulson standing in the middle of a ballroom talking to the team about covert operations and undercover work. Hes talking via microphones mind you , so anybody watching him would just see some dude talking to himself.
There was some good action at times, but the story was more or less a filler. I guess a lot of this season will have to do with these weird writings which Coulson seems to do while hes in some sort of trance. It all has to do with how he was brought back to life after the Avengers. Now some alien blood was used, and we saw the alien at the end of season one. It was blue….. and the only blue aliens with any kind of credence in the Marvel Universe is the Kree. Could it be ?? It should, but ill get back to that a little further down. Next weeks episode will feature the debut of Adrianne Palicki, who plays Bobbi Morse, who, in the comics, becomes the Avenger Mockingbird.
Here is a clip for episode 5 , titled ” A wolf in the hen house”
So my first reaction : Bobbi Morse is HYDRA ?? Noooooo, she is obviously the mole herself. And its good if we get to find out that there are other former SHIELD agents still working, cause that organization had like a million people in it, and the notion that only the few agents with Phil Coulson being the only ones who kept working is ridiculous.
Robert Downey Jr is now going to be in Captain America 3. Good thing DC moved their movie so it would not collide with Cap 3, cause it would be buried. Now the story is that they are going with a watered down version of Marvels Civil War storyline. A horrible idea at this point because they don´t have enough players to do it right. I would have loved to see it a little longer down the line, but if this is Marvels way of getting Downeys contractual appearances out of the way, so they can recast, then its a good thing. I mentioned earlier about the possibility that a Kree was the source of Coulson being brought back to life. I mentioned this because it seems that the SECRET INVASION storyline is the one they should be going with if thats the case. Imagine any Avenger dying in one of the movies , only to have it be revealed that that person was actually a SKRULL imposter……. Good stuff.
Now maybe they are moving towards this story, and maybe not. I just don´t want to see them do Civil War as a watered down event. At this point it looks like its just gonna be Cap vs Tony. Also, what happened to this wild a great story that Downey wanted to do Ironman 4 with Mel Gibson….. that was the talk of the town. Come on Marvel !!! Anyway Cap 3 will be coming out May 6, 2016
And we move on to the strange tale of the casting of Dr Strange.
So, they wanted Cumberbatch, and Hardy. Then they talked with Phoenix. That did not work so then Ethan Hawke was the name being dropped, and this week i read that Ewan McGregor is being considered ?? WTF is going on here. Now we all know Daniel Day Lewis is the best choice. But waiting around for him to actually learn the dark arts would take to long, so in all fairness the best fucking choice right now is CLIVE OWEN !!!
Simple. Now i like Ewan McGregor, but he, like Mads Mikkelsen can not do an American accent. Well Ewan can, it just sound really cheesy. Just cast Clive Owen Marvel. He wont let you down!!
Last thing from Marvel is a joke. Fox wants Tom Hardy to play En Sabah Nur in X-Men : Apocalypse. Fuck you fox, fuck you forever. There is so much wrong with that bit of news that i can HARDLY take it serious. So thats what they are going with. En Sabah Nur…… The scrawny human form of Apocalypse, and not the iconic giant villain? Well fuck it, what does it matter really, the movie is about Beast and Mystique anyway, so FUCK FOX !!!!
From here we move on to the DC Battle Cry !!! ( LOL )
Ok, so DC blew their wad and announced all the upcoming shit. The list is as follows :
– “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
– “Suicide Squad,” directed by David Ayer (2016)
– “Wonder Woman,” starring Gal Gadot (2017)
– “Justice League Part One,” directed by Zack Snyder, with Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
– “The Flash,” starring Ezra Miller (2018)
– “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa (2018)
– “Shazam” (2019)
– “Justice League Part Two,” directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
– “Cyborg,” starring Ray Fisher (2020)
– “Green Lantern” (2020)
First things fucking first. Are you telling me that Batman and Superman are not getting a solo film until 2021 maybe?? Well fuck you.
Secondly , the Suicide Squad?? Without introducing the characters beforehand as villains, you are making the Suicide Squad?? And not only that, you are not including Harley Quinn in the line up. I would laugh at this but its actually not that funny. Its just sad. Its like they heard about the Sinister Six movie and just went : OOHH WE COULD DO THAT TOO !!
What is funny is the list of actors they want to do the film. Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Tom Hardy. Who do DC/Warner think they are ?? Do they think they are Marvel/Disney ?? There is a reason why Marvel has been able to pick and chose great actors the last few years. Its because their movies have been great. Great at the box-office , and great films to watch. You know who wanted to play Superman after “Superman Returns” ?? NOBODY !!! You know who wanted to play Batman after Christian Bale?? NOBODY !!! So they got an englishman , and an Affleck. I think Ben Affleck is doing it for money, and seeing as he is not slated for a solo Batman film EVER, i would say hes not so into it. And look at these other films DC has lined up.
I will give them the SHAZAM movie with Dwayne Johnson actually playing the villain Black Adam. That could be a fun watch as long as they don´t try changing Black Adam into some hero.
But hey, thats not coming out until 2019 !!!! WHAT !!! Wait WHAT !!
Batman v Superman. Could be great. It could be so great that DC might actually want to make a solo Batfleck movie. But does Ben want to ??
Then there is the Suicide Squad… Good luck with that.
there is a Wonder Woman solo movie …. whhhoooooooo cares !!!!!
Then comes the Justice League movie PART ONE. Part one ??
2018 ( the year of DC movies !!! )
This is where they are going for the win. A stand alone FLASH movie starring this :
“FLASH!! AHHHHHHHHH,, he´ll save maybe one of us ” . For christ sake……
Then comes AQUAMAN starring Jason Momoa !!! WHOOOOOOOOO CARES !!!!
“Shazam” starring The Rock, who at that point could be box-office poison ?? He could be dead even ??
Then comes “Justice League Part Two,” directed by Zack Snyder . Seriously, there are three solo movies between Justice League Part one and two. So is this part two, as in its a story that connects to part one, cause..aahhhhhhh i dont care.
Then , in what will be the “best year” since 2018 comes “Cyborg,” starring Ray Fisher (WHO???) , and a “Green Lantern” reboot starring WHO ??? Nobody cares
I wish DC all my best. Really.
I also watched episode two of the new Flash tv show. I think its going to suck. Seriously, keep the fucking mask on while you are out in public !!! For fuck sake !!! In the series from the 90s , that guy NEVER took his mask of. I don´t care about seeing this kids face anyway. Fuck you for taking the mask of. Also, ripping of Agents of SHIELD with the fucking boy/girl science team?? That was the worst part about Agents of SHIELD….. why do that…..
I love the fact that DC has so little faith in this kid, that they went ahead and cast this as the Flash in the 2018 movie
What a vote of confidence…….! Enough about this DC bullshit.
I also watched the first episode of American Horror Story Freak Show. It was alright. Nothing special.I´ll give episode two a shot.
Next week i’m heading north again, and i expect snow. The good thing is that there is good internet, and i have time to watch movies and write rants.
Again, i am sorry to all you hundreds, thousands, and millions of you who read my stuff religiously , that i couldn’t give you any updates this past week. I am seriously considering getting my RAR section going . Razzie Audio Recording, a short and sweet review of movies or tv-shows. Because really the new generations don’t like reading. They would be 2 – 3 minutes in length, because really the new generations don’t like listening that much either.
Until we meet again , and the case is sol-ved !!
Razzle Razzle !!
ABC and Marvel Entertainment have released the first promo for episode 2.04 of “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” which you can check out in the player below. Titled “I Will Face My Enemy,” the episode is officially described as follows:
“While on a mission to learn more about the secrets of the mysterious writing, Coulson finds himself attacked by the only person he can trust: Agent Melinda May. Meanwhile, the rest of the team is trapped in an explosive situation, and it’s up to Fitz to save them – but is he up to it?”
Now, ok. I should wait until i have actually seen this before i knock it. BUT WHAT THE HELL. That voice over makes it sound like a Chevy Chase comedy.Or like what South Park was mocking when they made this :
I mean really, if they aren’t gonna take this seriously then i sure as hell wont either . And that last part of the description : “and it’s up to Fitz to save them – but is he up to it?”
I don´t have the word to convey it, but i found this and i think it fits quite well
Another thing is the whole sub plot about Simmons being undercover at HYDRA. Yeah, forget about that, we´ll just leave that alone for some reason. ITS NOT THAT IMPORTANT ANYWAY YOU SEE !!! I am half way thinking that the mysterious writing they are investigating is the actual scripts for the show………
This weeks episode could have been titled “Filler Garbage”
One thing i kind of liked about the new season was the fact that “agent” Simmons was gone. Only a part of “agent” Fitz´s shattered mind. Now the reasons for keeping Fitz around in the state he is in totally eludes me. He should be under special care in some hospital, but hes not. Moving on.
Like i said, the fact that Simmons was gone was a good thing. Agents Fitz and Simmons were the most annoying part of season one. But it turns out Simmons is working undercover at a HYDRA research “company”. I don´t know what to call it really. It makes very little sense. Agent Simmons has a nice little apartment which is in walking distance of the HYDRA workplace. She can basically walk in and out whenever she wants. Now lets imagine that HYDRA didn’t even suspect her of being a double agent. Because that is the only way this scenario works. In this same episode they are in the process of brainwashing another former SHIELD agent. This was apparently not important to do with Agent Simmons. A level 5 SHIELD agent who HYDRA, via their own double agent from season one MUST have known was loyal to Agent Coulson and SHIELD
So this whole Simmons working for HYDRA is utter nonsense, and all just very convenient for this weeks episode. Don´t even get me started on the fact that this lab were Simmons now works has a HUGE HYDRA SYMBOL on the wall, and all the people working there are wearing little HYDRA pins…… REALLY ?? This is all just too stupid.
So the episode also is about another “gifted” character from season one that no one cared about then either . Its a filler, building on a filler. I couldn’t care less really, but amazingly they even end the show by remarking what a horrible idea it is to have Simmons be a double agent. It makes no sense whatsoever . Even less sense than it did to all of a sudden have Skye acting like a bad ass SHIELD agent in episode 1 and 2 . But then shes being schooled in firearms in episode 3. ….. Whatever, nobody’s really paying much attention are they? Is she an agent or isn’t she. Little of both i guess, what ever they need her to be at that particular point in time……
Another WHO CARES element to this new season is the whole Clarice/Hannibal story they have going on between Skye and the now captured Agent Ward. Because Skye is now also the best suited interrogator on the team. Oh didn’t i mention that. Makes sense doesn’t it. As much sense as anything else does.
You have to remember also, that all this is going on after the events of Captain America 2. Actually A VERY LONG WHILE AFTER. Where is everybody? Nick Fury is off doing what exactly? Captain America thinks that going after Bucky Barnes is a more pressing matter than going after HYDRA.
Ironman apparently can´t even be bothered with any of this because he blew up his suits at the end of Ironman 3 and walked into the sunset.And that was long before the events of Cap 2. Maria Hill is working for Tony Stark now…. doing what? Security work ? Who cares really. Even she ain’t got a care in the world that loads of superhuman villains, like the now castrated Absorbing Man are running lose, and are gathering top secret and potentially super dangerous artifacts that even Nick Fury was so scared of they just locked it away.
I guess once every episode when a new superhuman baddie is in the episode, or they have to deal with a new super dangerous artifact, they will just casually throw something like this out there :
” Oh yeah, HIM / HER / THAT was in the CUBE, or THE SANDBOX or WHATEVER, and was released by HYDRA , OR escaped or whatever MONTHS AGO at the end of season ONE, and we just couldn’t deal with it then because it wasn’t important. BUT ITS IMPORTANT IN THIS EPISODE so lets get on it ASAP !! Hey Skye, you are badass in this episode, go deal with it. And take Fitz with you for backup!”
And then there is the military, represented by Glen Talbot, who is well known for his downright hate of Bruce Banner and the HULK. He also has abandoned his hunt for the HULK ( if he ever was on it of course) because Agent Coulson and his merry men are more important. More important than catching the HULK, or even HYDRA. What is this shit ?
This all reeks to my eyes. Agents of SHIELD are dragging the MCU down. Are we just supposed to go along with the fact that only these handful of former agents,and mercenaries under the leadership of Phil Coulson, who isn’t telling them fuck all by the way, are the only thing that remains of the wast SHIELD organization ? That everyone else just called it a day. And that no steps has been taken, or is being taken to fill the massive void left by SHIELD to keep the United States, and the WORLD safe from HYDRA, AIM, and whatever those guys lead by Baron Von Strucker are.
I wonder how any of the Avengers are going to explain this , if they even touch upon it in Age of Ultron. Imagine, Ironman, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and Captain America meeting up in Age of Ultron.
Ironman :”Oh yeah sorry about that, i just went on vacation with Pepper”
Hawkeye : ” i missed all of this, the world darts championship was on tv… sorry”
Black Widow ” I just went into hiding , what else could i have done? ”
Cap : “sorry i can´t tell you what i did, cause the script for Cap 3 isn´t even finished yet so i don´t know….”
Me : FUCK ALL Y´ALL !!!!! THIS IS BULLSHIT !!
I really really really hope that the upcoming AGENT CARTER series has more to offer than this…. And I hope that Agents of SHIELD either picks up the slack, or gets cancelled before they ruin any other good characters like The Absorbing Man
