Towelites! It’s once again time to round up the latest news and rumors surrounding Marvel Studios’ Phase 2!
We have a ton of trailers for the upcoming epic, Guardians of the Galaxy. Here’s the latest smorgasburg of TV spots and more to satisfy your need for this film to come out as soon as possible! Guardians of the Galaxy flies into theaters on August 1st!
Things have been quiet on the Agents of SHIELD front as of late, but rest assured that we are in for some surprises come season 2! No word on what the plot will be for the new season, but from what I’ve read around the interwebs it is headed in a darker direction. Agent Coulson himself, Clark Gregg had the following to say about the changes we will see with Coulson this year.
IGN: Coulson’s now rebuilding SHIELD. I was thinking about the fact that Fury has given him all this access to hidden bases and whatnot, but Fury’s technically dead. Do you think that this new SHIELD will be a very much off-the-grid type of SHIELD, maybe not an officially sanctioned SHIELD?
Gregg: That’s a really interesting point just because what’s been clear to me is that the Agent Coulson who’s running this team post-Captain America: The Winter Soldier, post-Hydra, post-being killed and brought back to life with something in him he doesn’t understand… He’s a very different Coulson than the guy who everyone knew. A lot of people who knew him in the old days say, “He’s different.” I think you would have to be different having gone through that stuff. So I think he’s reinventing himself and re-understanding himself as a person anyway, which is probably really necessary to taking in the new environment and figuring out what SHIELD ought to be in a way that it doesn’t get rotten again.
Head on over to IGN for the rest of the interview! It will be interesting to see how they tie-in GOTG and Avengers; Age of Ultron this coming yeat!! Look for Agents of SHIELD to return this fall and for Season 1 to be hitting Blu-ray soon!
