We now have our first trailer for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. featuring a team from the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division (Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker) dealing with the weird, supernatural, and super-powerful under the leadership of the very much alive Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) in the television version of the Marvel Universe. The show has been officially picked up for ABC and will be premiere on Tuesday, September 3rd.
One of the highlights from this weekend’s MTV Movie Awards was Emma Watson accepting the Trailblazer Award. The Trailblazer Award is “given to an actor who, despite their age, has managed to inspire others with a diverse portfolio of work and a transcendent reputation in the public eye.”
This weekend marked Justin Timeberlake‘s fifth time as host on Saturday Night Live, putting him into an exclusive club (many of whom made cameos in the extended opening monologue as well as the reunion of the Three Amigos)!
In an open letter to fans of the show, Leverage co-creator Dean Devlin discusses the future of the TNT drama which still has not been renewed by the network to return for a sixth season. This means the remaining three episodes of the show’s Fifth Season, culminating in the season finale which airs on Christmas Day, may very well be the show’s series finale as well. The bad news is it looks like there’s a good chance Leverage is going away. The good news is, with foreknowledge that this could be a possibility, the producers put the original concept for show’s final arc of the series in place for this season. This means if the show is going out (which I certainly hope isn’t the case) at least it’s going out on its own terms and exactly as the show’s creators originally envisioned. You can find the full letter inside.
