Between my full time day job, my children (aka the best kids in America), and the lack of extra spending money, I don’t get to go to conventions that often. I go to NYCC, but end up planting myself in a hall that doesn’t clear out after each panel (damn you main stage), furiously writing and posting everything I can for Geeks of Doom. My husband got us VIP tickets for Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in Secaucus, NJ this weekend, and I didn’t know what to expect. I knew the event was more focused, targeting a specific fan – lovers of comic books and comic-based shows. Even more specific – fans of The CW’s hit show Arrow, with Gotham, Heroes, The Flash, Comic Book Men, Agent Carter, Legends of Tomorrow, and wrestling mixed in.
Marvel’s popularity is at its height, as shown at New York Comic-Con 2015. On Friday, October 9th, Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb held a Marvel’s Agents of Primetime Panel to give fans updates for on both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter. With fans already pumped about the event and the shows, they became even more excited when Clark Gregg appeared on stage. At that point, the crowd’s chants of “Carter! Carter!” changed to “Coulson! Coulson!”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has hit the milestone of 50 episodes, and Loeb expressed his gratitude to the fans for this achievement.
The Alphabet Network shocked viewers with unexpected renewals and exciting series orders this past week. The future of ABC will rely on synergistic efforts, Shondaland programming, some traditional fare, and a great handful of risky offerings.
Count on the Muppets, diverse comedies, Marvel, experimental dramas, and Shonda Rhimes-infused dramas for what is sure to be a stellar 2015-2016 primetime schedule.
Since it is May, networks are announcing which shows are getting pilots, another season, and which shows are being cancelled. ABC’s two Marvel flagship series, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, are getting new seasons, but the AoS spinoff that was suppose to star Adrianne Palicki and Nick Blood is not getting the greenlight. More below.
Deadline was the first to break the news. According to them, ABC has put the breaks on the AoS spinoff, which would have been lead by Palicki and Blood.
Tonight sees the season finale of Marvel‘s Agent Carter, one of my favorite shows on television! Marvel has release two sneak peek clips from this eighth and final episode of the first season, titled “Valediction,” which marks Howard Starks return and the completion of Agent Carter’s mission.
Watch both clips here below, along with a promo video for the season finale.
The first clip includes the return of Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), who’s able to bypass security so that he and Jarvis can easily walk right into the Strategic Scientific Reserve (SSR) offices; the second clip involves a massacre at the movies courtesy of Doctor Fennhoff that Agent Carter (Hayley Atwell) and her fellow SSR agents go to investigate.
