Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 2 Recap, Episode 10: ‘What They Become’

CA_SHEILD-s2e10

Agents of SHIELD hit the mid-season mark (and the beginning of a long winter hiatus) with an actual possible game-changer this week, leaving several characters in a severely altered state, and not all of them because of the secrets of the disco doorstop. Mysteries were resolved, shots were fired, and things will never be the same again (because change is the nature of existence, duh).

'What They Become' was directed by Michael Zinberg and written by Jeffrey Bell. As is tradition, I will subject it to my usual 'S.H.L.E.I.D.' recap process, and somewhere in there I'll offer you the shortest mea culpa you'll ever see about a nasty thing the show did last week that it sort of undoes this week, in the most dickish way imaginable!

Hacked Emails Reveal Sony’s Conditions For Spider-Man Movie Crossover With Marvel

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Sony

It’s been a really rough time for Sony as the studio’s e-mails and sensitive materials have been hacked by a mysterious group, and confidential details have been leaking left and right. The latest pieces of information picked up from Sony’s hacked internal e-mails have to do with Spider-Man—a character that’s in a bit of flux right now as Sony has been trying to sort out what to do next following the critical and commercial disappointment of ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2.’ As it turns out, Sony has indeed spoken with Marvel about a potential crossover, and that’s not all they’ve been planning to salvage the character.

7 Reasons You Should Have Been Reading ‘Superior Foes Of Spider-Man’

SuperiorFoesMain

Honestly, it's pretty surprising Superior Foes of Spider-Man made it as far as 17 issues.

The title lacked star power in terms of characters (Spider-Man's name is in the title, but that was very nearly the full extent of the character's participation in the comic) and it fell into a genre that, for whatever reason, doesn't connect with readers all that often: the superhero universe comedy.

Yet, until it ended late last month, it was one of the best comics on the stands. Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber's tale of a group of C-list villains (and that's being generous) grouping together to be the new Sinister Six (despite there only being five of them) had more character, personality, playfulness, inventiveness and wit in its pages than most other comics coming out.

peggy-hardmancover

Considering that she's soon to be the lead character in an ABC TV series, it only makes sense for Agent Peggy Carter to get a chance to shine in comics, too.

She'll be front-and-center, along with TV co-star Howard Stark, fighting Hydra in Marvel's new Operation S.I.N. miniseries, which launches in January. Just like the Agent Carter TV show, the series is set in the 1950s and depict the Marvel Universe's version of the Cold War. Kathryn Immonen (Runaways) writes the series, and Rich Ellis (Memorial) takes on art duties.

Marvel Alias Jessica Jones Krysten Ritter

Though Marvel’s Netflix ‘Daredevil’ has yet to reveal an image of its titular hero in costume, we’d recently learned the second of the ‘Defenders’ series, ‘Jessica Jones’ had begun its casting search. We were split between ‘True Detective’'s Alexandra Daddario and ‘Breaking Bad’'s Krysten Ritter, but the latter seems to have won the role, with ‘The Following’'s Mike Coulter potentially acting as our ‘Luke Cage.’

Ron Wimberly’s ‘Blade’ Is The Pitch We Want To See Green-Lit In 2015

Blade00

One of the things I've never been able to understand about comics is why Blade has never been able to hold down an ongoing series. I mean, he the character who provided Marvel with its first-ever big-screen success, but he's a badass who chops up draculas with katanas, and really, that should be the easiest formula to sell to anyone. And yet, it hasn't happened, despite multiple attempts since the first Blade movie became a hit in 1998.

Maybe it's because they haven't given Ron Wimberly a shot yet.
