Faith Erin Hicks' 2013 Comic-Con trip was very different from her first. Five years ago she took a "quintessential broke SDCC trip," and this year she was a special guest of the show. Like many in her situation would be, the creator of Friends With Boys and Demonology 101 was in a bit of disbelief about the difference in her experience five years later, so much so that she decided to chronicle her time at 2013 Comic-Con in a series of journal comics. The entire thing is charming and sincere, particularly the parts where she meets Joss Whedon (an idol of hers and the inspiration behind Demonology 101) and the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender, who actually remember Hicks and are familiar with her work, a revelation that causes her head to explode. (Editors Note: Her head did not literally explode).
Somewhere along the line, Agent Coulson became the breakout star of the Marvel film universe. Appearing in nearly every Marvel Studios film from the first Iron Man up to Avengers, Coulson, played by Clark Gregg, grew in popularity in a way that very few likely imagined. All this has culminated in Coulson being one of the stars of the upcoming Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. television series from ABC. So while the character will be getting even more screen time on television this fall, one place you likely won't see him, according to director Joss Whedon, is in the newly titled Avengers: Age of Ultronfilm.
Saturday night at Marvel's "Marvel Studios" panel, Avengers director Joss Whedon came on stage to announce to fans in attendance that the sequel to last summer's blockbuster film would be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron. The news was met with excitement from people in attendance, as well as speculation as to whether or not the film would be an adaptation of the recent Age of Ultron miniseries from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artists Bryan Hitch and Carlos Pacheco. Whedon quickly dispelled any such notions before Comic-Con was even over, definitively stating that "We're doing our own version of the origin story for Ultron."
Marvel Entertainment closed out day three of Comic-Con with their highly anticipated 'Marvel Studios:Thor: The Dark WorldandCaptain America:The Winter Soldier.' Hosted by Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige, the panel started out with Tom Hiddleston coming out and going into his Loki character to entertain the crowd, was followed by the cast of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film joining Feige on stage as they debuted footage from the film, and closed out with Joss Whedon coming out to make Marvel's biggest announcement of this year's SDCC: the sequel to last year's phenomenally successful Avengers film will be titled Avengers: Age of Ultron, meaning the villain will be the powerful android with close ties to the Avengers who's tormented the team for decades.
This weekend ABC announced that Marvel's S.H.I.E.L.D, the upcoming television series spinning out of Marvel Entertainment's highly successful movie universe, is getting a new name. The Joss Whedon helmed vehicle will now be titled Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a title

Yes, yes; we all lovedThe Avengers movie this year, but as writer/director Joss Whedon revealed during an appearance at the Directors Guild of America in Hollywood last night, the movie that made it to screen was somewhat different from the one he initially envisioned, with that version including not only a mysterious second villain, but also an appearance by Janet Van Dyne, AKA the Wasp.
"There was a little bit of time where we thought we might now actually get Scarlett ," Whedon told the audience when asked about the rumors about a mooted appearance by the Wasp in an earlier version of the script. "There was a very Wasp-y draft that
