Agents of SHIELD SPOILER Thread - New Age of Ultron Clip Edition

Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 5:11 pm


I'm a little bummed she doesn't have the yellow goggles. Safe to say a lot is at stake in this scene.

Remember: NEW Age of Ultron footage tonight, and it won't be the clip I described from this morning's event.

It also won't be effects footage - we were told that the current teaser uses literally every finished effects shot so far.

Diamond Select Reveals New Images of Next Star Trek Action Figure: Worf

Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 3:30 pm


I was a big fan of Diamond's first two Select Kirk and Spock figures, but I'm now wondering if the cost of materials went up, as their Picard and Worf seem a bit more limited. I'm not talking about their semi-preposed nature, but rather the diorama bits - Kirk came with Khan and a piece of the engine room, while Spock came with a Horta. Worf comes with...the Klingon Empire insignia on a wall? I mean, I know the episode, but couldn't we get a piece of floor to stand him on?

Yes, Worf toy, I know, "I do not require the creature comforts of your other figures. I am a Klingon." I'm just saying foot pegs would keep you from falling over.

Worf will hit stores next spring.

Marvel Reveals Phase 3 Movies, Culminating in 2-Part Avengers/Guardians "Infinity War"

Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 11:00 am


Three months later than they had originally intended, Marvel today finally revealed the Phase 3 movie schedule and titles they had wanted to have ready for Comic-Con. And oh yeah, according to Marvel president Kevin Feige, their plans have nothing to do with any competitor's plans.

He knows we don't believe that, and I don't think he cares. Why should he? When he ran a montage of clips showcasing the Tesseract, Aether, and whatever the thing was called in Guardians, culminating in an image of Thanos wearing the Infinity Gauntlet, I think most of us in attendance were ready to empty our wallets preemptively. (Yes, it was Brolin Thanos, and yes, that image was the only thing "new" in the montage.) Avengers: Infinity War will be a two-part movie.

There was more to come...

Relax - "Furry Potter" Is Just a Sesame Street Parody

Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 10:00 am


I'm not sure they understand quite where our minds go with that title.

Honestly, though, this plays less like a Harry Potter parody to me, and more like the conversation I seriously just had five minutes ago with an AT&T rep who repeated back everything I said completely wrong. If Cookie Monster's acting career ever falters, he's already set with a back-up career in tech support. Unless they decide he's too competent.

Official Gotham Masks Show Its Characters in the Future

Monday, October 27, 2014 at 6:20 pm


I thought this was interesting. It isn't just "here's the comic character we're basing them on," but rather "Here's Gotham's Ed Nygma with a mask, here's what Robin Lord Taylor will look like older and fatter, and perhaps most potentially spoilery, here's Fish Mooney in apparent mourning at some point in the future. back about tonight's episode below, if you like.

Top-Down Smackdown: Help Them, Obi-Wan Kenobi

Monday, October 27, 2014 at 4:19 pm


As finishes to main-event matches go, it was certainly original.

After a back and forth match between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose that constantly threatened to derail, as when both men were almost wheeled out on stretchers after the first big bump...the lights went out. A chant began in a language not obviously English, and as my wife needled me to translate what she was certain was German, it started to sound a bit like backmasking.

Then the light of a lantern turned on in the middle of the ring...and nothing else. Until...
