One of the grossest feelings in the world is getting into a car that’s been soaking in the sunlight all day. No one likes sitting in an oven, not even for a couple of minutes. ThinkGeek has three sunshade solutions to help keep your vehicle cool, and the designs feature Spider-Man, Batman, and the Avengers. The windshield shades block out UV rays and proclaim your geekiness to passersby so they’re really cool in two senses of the word.

See the other styles after the break.

Loki – Norse god of mischief, lies and evil – is a sympathetic yet clear villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, arranging for people to die and war to erupt just to ruin his brother’s coronation, later robbing people of free will as he attempted planet-wide genocide. But we still love seeing him in action and a large part of the credit goes to Tom Hiddleston, a superb actor and all-around sweet guy. This Friday, Joss Whedon: The Biography will be released and it includes an e-mail exchange between Hiddleston and the director/screenwriter of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. The actor was so overjoyed at Loki’s role in the script for Marvel’s The Avengers that he was compelled to write a thank you letter.

The letters can be read after the break.

Nick Fury may have known what he was getting into with S.H.I.E.L.D., but he probably had no idea just how complicated his life would become when he had to start wrangling The Avengers. This comic by Jenn Menze takes a fun look at how Fury gets them all out of bed and ready for the day, and then settles them all back down for a good night’s sleep.

The Avengers assembled to do some real world good recently for terminally ill cancer patient Stratford Caldecott who is a huge comic book fan, but has been too ill to go to the theater and see Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Sadly, he may not live long enough to see the Blu-ray release, so his daughter, journalist Sophie Lippiatt, decided to help. She wrote up a blog post to try and convince Disney/Marvel to send him a copy of the movie early, and the actors involved in the franchise gave her their support.

They tweeted pictures to Marvel while holding up signs with the hashtag #CapForStrat and the good news is that Stratford got his wish and will be able to see the movie. Now that Sophie has brought some joy into her ailing Father’s life, she has followed up with a beautiful thank you note to everyone and a request for privacy during this difficult time:

If we all take anything away from all of this, let it be that the world can be a good and gentle place, despite what we often hear to the contrary, and that the kindness of strangers is very real. To all those suffering now, please remember that you are not alone.

Our thoughts go out to Sophie and her family, and to all those fighting the battle against cancer.

See the tweets and Sopie’s follow-up note after the break.

Not only has Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. been officially renewed for next season, but the network has also ordered a half season of Agent Carter! And since everything is official, they’ve released the first piece of promo art that’s shown above as well as a synopsis:

“Marvel’s Agent Carter,” starring Captain America’s Hayley Atwell follows the story of Peggy Carter. It’s 1946, and peace has dealt Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy 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. Inspired by the feature films “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” along with the short “Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter.”

Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” is executive produced by Christopher Markus, Steve McFeely, Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Jeph Loeb.

Sounds like it’s shaping up to be quite a show.

Robert Downey Jr. arrived on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron earlier this week and tweeted his arrival. Now Mark Ruffalo is following suit with a series of tweets from the set of the movie. His tweets included a few images, but don’t get too excited. They don’t reveal anything super secret, just a few fun shots of things on set.

There’s a hooded Black Widow, Downey Jr. posing with Ruffalo (Science Bros!), and the assembled chairs of all the cast members (in a tweet from Downey Jr.). Ruffalo later shared that production has moved from South Korea and Africa over to the United Kingdom.
