During San Diego Comic-Con, a select group of lucky "Captain America" fans got to see a special screening of the upcoming short film, "Agent Carter." The new Marvel One-Shot picks up with Agent Peggy Carter right where 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger" left off, with Hayley Atwell's formidable secret agent joining proto-S.H.I.E.L.D. just after the end of World War II.
As Entertainment Weekly previously revealed, the short film also stars Bradley Whitford as the sexist Agent Flynn and Dominic Cooper, who reprises his role as Howard Stark. Now, thanks to the magic of the internet, fans everywhere can watch an action-packed fraction of what those lucky SDCC attendees saw in full.
"Agent Carter" will be released on the "Iron Man 3" Blu-ray on September 24th.

The plot's one we've all seen before: kid races home before their parent finds out they've actually skipped school. That's just what happens in this new clip from "Kick-Ass 2", where the "Full House"-ish plot gets a thoroughly "Kick-Ass" makeover.
Mindy Macready's left her superhero career behind - at least that's what her guardian, a police officer named Marcus, believes. With the threat of a supreme grounding looming over her head, Hit-Girl hops on her Ducati bike and pounds on the gas to try to get home before Marcus does.
The clip also features a souped-up remix of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts' "I Hate Myself For Loving You," which is a nice nod to the first "Kick-Ass" film wherein Hit-Girl took out a hallway of mobsters to Jett's "Bad Reputation." Check out the entire clip below!

Joss Whedon had a big weekend. With the con encompassing everything Whedon, like "Avengers: Age of Ultron" capping off the ginormous Marvel Studios presentation, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." could have easily fallen through the cracks. But that was decidedly not the case, as the show hyped up its profile with a screening of the pilot and the announcement that Cobie Smulders will reprise her role as Maria Hill in the pilot.
MTV News caught up with Whedon and asked him the two big questions: when will we find out how Coulson came back from the dead, and how much will the show tie into the Marvel films?
"Well in episode three we will reveal that he's made of cheese," jokes Whedon regarding Coulson's return. "That's obviously something that we're clearly planning to tease out, because it's not really about what happened. We make it clear that something happened and it's going to be about him dealing with it."
Whedon had lengthier thoughts on how the show will fit in with the movies, stating that making a quality show takes priority over referencing the movies, but that they will still try to squeeze in nods. Check out the full interview below for his answer!

There is no darkness without light. Likewise, there is no "Darkness" movie without Sara Pezzini.
Marc Silvestri told MTV Geek at Comic-Con that the "Darkness" movie has a major role for Sara Pezzini, better known as Witchblade, one of Top Cow's flagship characters. According to Silvestri, including Pezzini in the first big-screen take on Jackie Estacado was a no-brainer.

Following a big panel at San Diego's Comic-Con International, "X-Men: Days of Future Past" has revealed the first two of what's sure to be many promotional posters for next summer's mutant movie. With a big enough cast to fill three different films, odds are this movie will have enough posters to make "The Wolverine" blush.
But right now there are two "Days of Future Past" promo posters, and as far as I'm concerned, they're enough. The two images feature black and white portraits of Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart with colored X's centered over their left eyes, with images of Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy contained within. Magneto and Professor X are the only characters in the film to have two actors play them, so odds are the rest of the "Days of Future Past" posters will go down a different route - unless Kelsey Grammer or Rebecca Romijn sign on.
Check out the posters below!
Batman's making a comeback, but he's doing it without any assistance from the Nolans.
At Comic-Con, Zack Snyder announced that his "Man of Steel" sequel features both Superman and Gotham's Caped Crusader. He's co-writing the story with David Goyer, writer of "Man of Steel" and the previous "Dark Knight Trilogy." But even though Goyer is returning, he won't be joined by Jonathan Nolan, Chris Nolan's brother and Goyer's collaborator on the critically-acclaimed Batman series.

It looks like it might be a while before Agent Coulson hits the big screen again. His demise in "Marvel's the Avengers" seemingly put an end to his adventures, but now his as-yet-unexplained resurrection this fall in ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has fans wondering if the beloved agent will assemble alongside the Avengers. Just... don't hold you breath.
The Associated Press caught up with "Avengers: Age of Ultron" writer and director Joss Whedon and asked him the question on every fan's mind: Will Coulson return in the sequel? The answer at this moment, sadly, is no.

Last week, "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for an in-depth interview about the upcoming fourth season of the crazy popular AMC series of the same name. In said interview, Kirkman discusses Michonne's lust for vengeance, the return of the Governor, and the newly-appointed "Walking Dead" showrunner, writer Scott Gimple.
With Gimple now at the forefront of the series, odds are we'll be seeing a lot more scenes from the Walking Dead comic popping up in the "Walking Dead" TV series. After all, Gimple is the first showrunner that was actually a fan of the comic books before production on season one even began. That being said, here are five things from the Walking Dead comic book that we hope to see in season four of "The Walking Dead."
Is he Thanos? Is he Vision? Is he … no one?
That last option is a very real possibility when it comes to Vin Diesel and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kevin Feige spoke with Huffington Post about Diesel's supposedly upcoming Marvel role, clearing the air that there's nothing to announce right now — and there might not be anything to announce at all.
Loki of Asgard unburdened his glorious purpose at Comic-Con over the weekend — and you have Kevin Feige to thank for that.
Tom Hiddleston spoke with Hero Complex about appearing onstage as his "Thor: The Dark World" character during the film's Hall H presentation, saying it was all Feige's idea: "He sort of said, 'How about you just come in character and you don't break character at all and you introduce the footage? Give a whole kind of encore to the two films?'"
That's exactly what happened, and the crowd went wild. Hiddleston had a little bit of fun, too.
