Ant-Man

by Brett White

What is HAPPENING?! After Edgar Wright proved that he could do no wrong with this summer's out of this world "The World's End," anticipation for his first foray into the Marvel Universe has increased like whoa. We want "Ant-Man" and we want it now, and not even a new, earlier July 2015 release date will satisfy us. Give us Hank Pym and/or Scott Lang ASAP (and Janet Van Dyne, while you're at it)!

Now the director has tweeted a picture that hands-down wins the internet, and this is the day after a certain someone popped up on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Yeah, this is exciting. Check out the full tweet after the jump!

SHIELD

by Brett White

With "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" pilot and pretty impressive season one teaser still fresh in our minds, the show has released two batches of pictures to keep fans in a frenzy over all things S.H.I.E.L.D.

Pictures from episodes two and three of the series, titled "0-8-4" and "The Asset" respectively, have been made public, and they show that "S.H.I.E.L.D.'s" world is about to get a lot more turbulent. Literally. You can check out a selection of photos after the jump!

Summer Glau

by Brett White

With "Arrow's" season two premiere just under a month away, we're starting to get our first look at how the hit show based on DC Comics' Green Arrow has matured since we last saw it. The show has added new enemies, like Michael Jai White's Bronze Tiger, and new allies, like Grant Gustin's Barry Allen. Now, Green Arrow TV has posted 22 images taken from the show's season premiere episode, entitled "City of Heroes."

The pictures in question reveal a business meeting of sorts between Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), new series regular Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, and new addition Summer Glau, who plays the probably-not-so-nice Isabel Rochev. It seems like "Arrow's" second season is shaping up to be a big one, and these pictures only validate that feeling.

You can check out a few of them after the jump, and the rest of them are over at Green Arrow TV.

SHIELD

by Brett White

The LA Times' Hero Complex has published an in-depth look at the long road "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has traveled, all the way from being an idea in executive producer Jeph Loeb's mind after watching the Marvel short film "Item 47," all the way to being quite possibly the fall's most highly-anticipated drama.

The article includes over a dozen new photos of the cast on their elaborate set, which mimics the interior of the giant, state-of-the-art S.H.I.E.L.D. airplane that the sextet uses to traverse the globe, tracking down new super-threats. Actors Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, and Chloe Bennet can be seen shooting the fourth episode of the show. In addition to the photos, the article reveals a few new facts about the pilot. Check out the facts and photos after the jump!

Coulson Dalton

FROM MTV GEEK

We're just under three weeks away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe's small-screen debut in ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," a fact that MTV Geek is celebrating in it's Fall Preview coverage. "S.H.I.E.L.D." is one of their 10 most anticipated TV shows—and deservedly so! This series marks Marvel Studios' first foray into television as well as Agent Coulson's return to life. That latter mystery, one that's been on fans' minds since his return was announced last October, will be integral to the new series, reveals executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen in an exclusive interview with MTV Geek.

"The heart of the show is how he's still alive," said Tancharoen, remaining understandably vague about the details regarding his return. You can check out the rest of the interview over at MTV Geek, where fellow producers and showrunners Jeph Loeb, Jed Whedon, and Jeffrey Bell join Tancharoen to discuss the show's theme, whether or not it will include previously unseen Marvel heroes, and whether or not any movie stars are lined up to appear. You can also check out these two exclusive photos from the show!

Amazing Spider-Man 2

by Brett White

A whole new batch of "Amazing Spider-Man 2" production photos have been revealed, showing off a couple new shots of Paul Giamatti's pre-Rhino bad guy and Dane DeHaan. Stan Lee even makes another appearance in a photo most likely taken while filming his cameo appearance back in June.

But the real surprise is the appearance of the phrase "Sinister Six" on a wall in one photo. Fans have been speculating for a while now that the Spider franchise is building up to the super villain team up to end all others, but this seems too obvious, right? Could this just be an in-joke or Easter egg? You can check out the pictures after the jump and judge for yourself, and you can find even more pics over at Super Hero Hype

Magneto

by Brett White

Yet another tweet from "X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer reveals that mutants are not immune to "Breaking Bad" fever—even if those mutants are in 1973.

The latest pic comes as the film nears the end of principal photography and shows Michael Fassbender sporting a killer hat and sunglasses combo that bears an uncanny resemblance to Walter White's nefarious drug-dealing alter-ego on "Breaking Bad." Could Singer be setting up a reveal that Magneto was the original Heisenberg?!

No, no he's really not. But the new pic does show off more of Fassbender's Magneto, who we haven't seen since he got wet and wild with Beast back in June. Check out the full tweet and photo after the jump!

Artifacts

by Brett White

"X-Men: Days of Future Past" director Bryan Singer loves his TwitPics, that's for sure. So far he's dropped hints about Quicksilver, shown off a full-sized Sentinel, given us a tease of Mystique, and today he took his followers on a quick tour of someone's mutant museum—and part of it ain't pretty.

The full picture contains a number of artifacts linking "X-Men: Days of Future Past" to it's predecessor, "X-Men: First Class"—including the coin Magneto killed Sebastian Shaw with, Havok's damaged flight suit, Magneto's helmet, and Angel Salvadore's wings. That last item is the gruesome one, hinting at a not-too-happy ending for the almost X-Man. But who could this display belong to? Could these be some of Bolivar Trask's trophies, following a wave of Sentinel destruction? Or are all the props from past X-Films kept up in such a neat way?

You can check out the full tweet and TwitPic after the jump!

Oldboy Octopus

by Brett White

With "Oldboy" not due in theaters for a few more months, Collider has posted four new stills from Spike Lee's manga adaptation to up the anticipation. All four images feature leading man Josh Brolin—and one features a pretty charismatic octopus.

While I'm not sure if the octopus is a new addition to the "Oldboy"-verse or not, I'm quite excited to see what delightful adventures Brolin's character Joe Doucett and his octopus pal will get up to! Looking through the glass, tapping on glass... um, well, maybe just glass-related activities. Riveting!

Seriously, though, the rest of the photos feature significantly less octopus and significantly more "Oldboy"-ness. Doucett's bloody hammer can be seen in all its glory in one photo, and another shows off Brolin towards the end of his inexplicable captivity. For even more info, check out "Oldboy's" full trailer. You can check out a few of the pictures after the jump, and find the rest over at Collider!

Glenn Close Guardians of the Galaxy

by Brett White

And you thought Glenn Close looked different in "Albert Nobbs"? Wait until you get a load of her as Nova Prime in "Guardians of the Galaxy"!

The indoors-only production has kept set photos and leaks to a minimum, but all that changed over the weekend. The actress was caught on camera as the film shot on London's Millennium Bridge, which were most likely the film's first scenes not shot on a sound stage. Close is pretty much unrecognizable in her Nova Prime makeup, seen above to the left, and she doesn't look like any established Marvel alien that I can think of. By her side is a Nova Corpsman, all decked out in a version of the armor that debuted back at Marvel's booth at San Diego Comic-Con International.

Check out a few more pics of Close as Nova Prime, as well as a few glimpses of other aliens, after the jump!
