‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Deathlok Is Starting To Look More Like He Does In Marvel Comics

Shield Deathlok main

He's not quite there yet, and his costume looks a little bit like some leftover wardrobe from the Dune movie or a really fancied up seatbelt buckle, but the version of Deathlok from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is definitely starting to look more like his comic counterpart.

Outside of one Samuel L. Jackson appearance as Nick Fury back in the TV show's second episode and Cobie Smulders popping up as Maria Hill, fans of Marvel's movie characters haven't seen a lot of cameos on ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

They'll get a treat in the series' 15th episode, however, when Lady Sif, portrayed by Thor and Thor: The Dark World actress Jaimie Alexander, will make an appearance.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.1.07: ‘The Hub’

Agents of SHIELD recap

The return of Agent Sitwell. The arrival of Agent Hand. These are the little things that make me happy, Agents of SHIELD. Was it really so hard to get to this place?

The seventh episode of Agents of SHIELD gave us our first real taste of SHIELD as a government agency since the pilot, and it was a better show because of it. It also developed the characters and pushed a couple of plots forward. Good job, Agents of SHIELD. We knew you had it in you.

Spoilers follow.

Marvel And Netflix Announce Multiple Live-Action Program Deal

Daredevil, Cage
Marvel

In the past year, Netflix has found significant success in expanding its business model to include streaming original series. The popularity and critical praise of shows like Orange Is The New Black, House Of Cards, and the fourth season of Arrested Development have led many to wonder what the next step is for the media streaming giant, and just how significant it would be. It turns out, that next step involves the House Of Ideas, as today Marvel and its parent company Disney have announced an unprecedented partnership with Netflix in which Marvel TV will produce four serialized original programs, starring four of its characters, which will lead into a miniseries, and all of it will stream exclusively on Netflix.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.1.06: ‘FZZT’

CA Agents Of SHIELD

Agents of SHIELD returned from a week off last night with a new episode that finally put the focus on one of its least developed characters. Obviously we're grading on a curve, there.

This being the sixth episode, I feel like I ought to now have a decent grasp on what drives all six of the show's main characters. Even with this episode, which puts the spotlight on Gemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), I still feel like I'm in the company of strangers. Spoilers follow.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep.105: ‘Girl in the Flower Dress’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD11

Episode five of Agents of SHIELD, "Girl in the Flower Dress." brings us almost a quarter of the way through the first season, and for the first time I didn't think the episode was better than last week's -- but I didn't think it was worse either. Has Agents of SHIELD found its plateau?

The main story this week wasn't as strong as last, but it compensated; this was the first episode since the pilot to really push any elements of the greater arc. For that reason, it was maybe the most satisfying episode yet.

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep. 1.04, ‘Eye-Spy’

CA Agents Of SHIELD

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to get a preview of this week's episode of Agents of SHIELD at New York Comic Con, alongside several hundred passionate fans of the show. My impression at the time was that episode 4, 'Eye-Spy', was easily the best episode yet.

However, I had to wonder if seeing the show on the big screen, surrounded by a cheering, hollering crowd, made me more forgiving than I would usually be. I was curious to see how the episode would hold up on a second viewing.

‘Don’t Touch Lola’: The Best Character On ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Made An Appearance At NYCC 2013

Lola top

No matter how you feel about the recently launched Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series (so far we've been disappointed, but still hold out hope), I think we can all agree on one thing: The best written, most entertaining and most well-defined character, by a pretty wide margin, is Lola. There are no vague, uninteresting mysteries associated with Lola. You know her motivations, and you know exactly why she's with SHIELD. And really, can you say that about any other member of Agent Coulson's team so far (okay, maybe Skye)?

Comics Alliance Recaps ‘Agents of SHIELD’ Ep. 1.03: “The Asset” [Spoilers]

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD

Week three, and what started as a recap/review series is turning into an inquest. Why isn't this show working, and can the cast and creators turn it around?

This was the first episode to introduce an established comics character to the Marvel movieverse, and it felt like a slight improvement, but I said that last week as well. The show is improving by such tiny increments that (a) it'll take forever to get to where it needs to be to sustain interest, and (b) it may not be improving at all -- I may just be acclimating.

SPOILER WARNING.
