The latest trailer for the upcoming Joss Whedon series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” gives us an even better look at what we can expect when the series debuts this Fall. We’ve got Agent Coulson back from the dead, witty agents, explosions, gadgetry, superheroes, and a sexy, red car named Lola. It’s as good as any movie trailer and sets the bar darn high. We’ve also got official cast shots from the series to give you a good look at the people you’ll be getting to know on Tuesdays this Fall.

One of the gripes that keeps coming up about Iron Man 3 is that Tony Stark doesn’t call upon the Avengers to help him in his fight. They all get along, they’ve battled side by side, why wouldn’t he give them a ring? Well, there are many reasons but I like the humorous ones Dorkly came up with best. The fact is that the superhero team really isn’t all that amazing.
Check out the funny breakdown of more members of the team after the break.
It’s not unusual for movies to have strange working titles, and one look at these posters designed by redditor daidalos5 gives us a pretty good reason why. Sometimes it’s because they’re trying to keep the existence of a particular movie under wraps, but you’ve got to wonder how often the working title was a possibility that, thankfully, wasn’t the title that stuck. Keanu Reeves as The Burly Man is just the most laughable thing ever.

Cats can be cute and cuddly or they can look ready to claw your eyes out. These cat versions of The Avengers and The Walking Dead‘s Daryl Dixon definitely look like they’ve sharpened their claws. They’re the latest installment in a series of illustrations by Jenny Parks who has forever changed the way we’ll look at our innocent feline friends

The Avengers might save us from evil aliens bent on taking over the world, but to save us from bad television it’s going to take a whole different group of heroes. Gritty Reboots, the guys who brought us a real-world Calvin & Hobbes movie trailer, have assembled the PBS Avengers. This team includes the likes of Bob Ross, Mister Rogers, Carl Sagan and Bill Nye who want to make sure that television isn’t just about vapid reality shows, but about learning and science. Watch out for Ross. You won’t like him when he’s angry.

Because the internet is the internet there’s a whole meme about the Tony Stark and Bruce Banner bromance. Often times, it’s more than a bromance. The Science Bros tag on Tumblr elicits some interesting stories and images, and Mark Ruffalo recently learned about it thanks to Vulture.
When Vulture told him about the phenomenon he asked what it was, and then he learned. He told the site:
“Are you joking?” he asked as he began scrolling through the images. “There’s all this art of me and Robert?” Giggles gave way to full belly laughter. A concerned publicist came over, though Ruffalo was laughing so hard that he could barely explain himself to her.
“Is that a cartoon of you?” she asked.
“Yes! It’s me and Robert! Look at this! There’s thousands of them!” Ruffalo tried to contain himself. “It’s called the Science Bros. This is awesome. I’ve never heard of it. Why hasn’t anyone told me about that?”
He then asked if they were all quasi-homoerotic. They pretty much seem to be. His reacton?
I love it; it’s awesome,” Ruffalo enthused. “I endorse it 100 percent. You know what it is? It’s open-source creativity.” And here’s a scenario for the fans to contemplate: Ruffalo couldn’t wait to drop his newfound knowledge bomb on Downey Jr. “I’m going to call him and tell him, and he’s going to laugh his ass off,” Ruffalo said. “He’ll love that.”
This is all kinds of fantastic.
We saw some deleted scenes for The Avengers when the Blu-ray came out last year, but now we get tons more with the release of the fancy Marvel Phase One Blu-ray set. The bundle contains six Marvel films in an impressive package and comes with a slew of bonus content. You can see more of darn near every character including Captain America, Hawkeye, Loki & the Other, and Thor.

If any of you have a collection of comic books, you know that the boxes – both long and short – come in white. Just plain white. They’re boring, and I’ve thought of decoupaging them or decorating them before because they are visible in my office. Someone has finally decided to make a business of providing decorated ones, but they need your help. Boxes in Action is a Kickstarter project that plans to make the boxes part of the collecting. They make vivid designs – starting with Captain America and Iron Man – in limited editions.
The Kickstarter project will help fund the design of the next box. I love the concept, but I’m not sure how they’re skirting copyright laws. Furthermore, I’m surprised that neither DC or Marvel has pursued something like this as a way to advertise their comics.
Check out another design and the project video after the break.
Comic book creator Humberto Ramos has made a version of the Acura TL that’s way cooler than the one S.H.I.E.L.D. agents drove in the movie. He hand drew this at a dealership in Mexico over the course of just a few days. It’s an absolutely beautiful vehicle and Ramos has even signed the hood. I would kill to own this thing.
