The news just hit that Scarlett Johansson is expecting a child with her fiancé, Romain Dauriac. This is great news, but it could also be a problem because she could start showing in her Black Widow outfit, so the Avengers 2 shoot has had to do some reshuffling schedule-wise.
Guys, we know, we know…We know the Browncoats would love Firefly to come back, and hope was renewed when Veronica Mars was resurrected by crowd funding. And we know there’s plenty of fans who would love to plunk some money down in exchange for some swag, along with the bragging rights that they helped bring Firefly back.
We just reported here on TGD that the role of the Vision for Avengers Age of Ultron has been cast, and he will be played by Paul Bettany. We were also trying to speculate when the movie would actually start shooting, but apparently it’s already underway.
While SHIELD has had some struggles in the ratings, it’s now heading into the new year with a character from the Thor universe making a cameo, Lady Sif.
We recently reported on TGD that a lot of stories are getting sequels and prequels through graphic novels, and Serenity / Firefly is one of them. It will be quite some time if we ever get a resurrection of Joss Whedon’s beloved space opera, but this graphic novel could definitely keep fans satisfied for a while.
A lot of shows aren’t brilliant right out of the gate. It can often take a while before a show settles into a comfortable rhythm. While SHIELD has gotten stellar ratings so far, some critics feel it hasn’t quite hit the mark just yet, and that there’s lots of room for improvement.
Joss Whedon’s getting ready to embark on Avengers 2, which will start shooting in England next January. The fans would love to see him return to Firefly one day, but what about Buffy?
“Thanks to all of you – that’s how we do.” This is a tweet from Clark Gregg in response to what shouldn’t be a big surprise to anyone: S.H.I.E.L.D. had a very strong ratings debut on ABC, and the network will also repeat the show again this Thursday.
We recently reported here on TGD that while Firefly may not be back on TV any time soon, it will be returning as a graphic novel. This could be a great way to keep the Browncoat army happy, and we’ve been seeing several geek properties, like Pacific Rim, X-Files, an Frascape, that are continuing their stories through graphic novels.
The Avengers spin-off, S.H.I.E.L.D., is nearly upon on us, making its big debut on September 24, and now apparently the reviews are in. Let’s cut to the chase here…does the show deliver or not?
When you’re a big time script doctor, it’s your job to come in and save the day when a movie’s in trouble. Only the top screenwriters in Hollywood get the chance to save a movie, and make $100 – 200,000 a week in doing so.
Thanks to the movie incarnation of X-Men, which turned comic movies around big time, Professor Xavier’s mutants are more popular than ever. And thanks to Joss Whedon’s big screen version of The Avengers, superhero teams have never been hotter.
Firefly has a huge cult following today, but what bewilders us at TGD is the Browncoat fanbase couldn’t keep the show alive when it was first on TV back in 2002, and the Browncoats weren’t there when it hit the big screen with Serenity either.
So the news has hit that Ben Affleck is going to be the new model Batman, and like they say in AA, we don’t have to like it, but we do have to accept it. Not long after this announcement came the news that James Spader will be playing Ultron in Avengers 2, which will start shooting in England early next year.
Production on Avengers 2 will begin next year in England, and in the meantime, Marvel is launching the series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which will hopefully keep people satisfied before The Avengers return in 2015.
It’s remarkable that Firefly has such a big audience today, especially since Joss Whedon could barely get anyone to watch the series when it first hit TV screens way back in 2002.
While a movie like The Avengers would never sweep the Academy Awards, the MTV Movie Awards is another story.
A Kickstarter campaign recently raised an incredible $2.5 million dollars for a Veronica Mars movie, which then received a green light from Warner Brothers.
As amazing as it would be the have the kind of success as Joss Whedon and JJ Abrams, it must also be quite exhausting.
Like JJ Abrams, Joss Whedon is going to be a very busy man for the next couple of years.
