"This is unprecedented," a geek told us on hearing the news that Lucy Lawless is to guest-star on Agents of SHIELD season two. "Like all my Christmases come at once. Oh God you've put up a picture of her with Seven Of Nine off Voyager oh God OH GOD." He died later that day.
In Marvel's Agent Carter, announced last week as a star vehicle for the quite splendid Hayley Atwell, Peggy Carter must "balance doing administrative work and going on secret missions for Howard Stark all while trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life - Steve Rogers". You've got to hand it to them: they're confident enough that we're on board with their 14 movies a year
that they'll try a TV series where the most interesting person has just nipped out to the shops. Here's five more they've got in the pipeline.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a spin-off from Marvel
's hugely successful Avengers film series, has gone from being one of the most eagerly anticipated shows of the year to something of a damp squib. Expectations were stupidly high, based on the fact that the Marvel movies have defied the odds and not been dreadful, and that show creator Joss Whedon had managed to pull off the nigh impossible task of making a great Avengers movie.
As a terribly exciting new trailer for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. physically hit the internet tonight, heavy was my heart. Their standing poses in this promotional picture indicate that the female characters will conform to the feminine archetypes used in TV action shows since the dawn of time. Did Black Widow burn her bra for nothing? (*pictures Scarlett Johansson's bra, forgets what he was saying*)
