Show Us Your Muscles

A lady friend of mine who is an even bigger geek than I (yes that is possible) has aired a major beef with Marvel Studios.  It’s not something that I had given much thought to but now that she has made me aware of it, I can’t get it out of my head.  Although their films are generally well cast they do have one glaring problem.  All of the so-called “superheroines” are lacking in the muscle department.  They are, in fact, kinda scrawny. Yeah, yeah, I know.  Scarlett Johansson is…

You Can’t Keep a Good Woman Down

After petitions, Twitter activism and much hand-wringing, it was announced that Peggy Carter, our favorite SSR Agent and founder of SHIELD, will be returning to television. But in a way no one would have expected. Disney and Marvel have released news of a single-episode appearance of Agent Carter in the animated series Marvel’s Avengers Assemble’s fourth season, entitled Avengers: Secret Wars. While there are not many details, it’s been revealed that she and Howard Stark (sadly, no Jarvis) will guest star in an episode described as “past and present collide” when…

Marvel Update

Well… If you’re like me, there were a couple of bits of disappointing news in the world of the MCU this week. I’ll be brief, or as brief as a verbose Kittenn such as myself can be. So here we go. First, my heartfelt dream of seeing Katee Sackhoff don the red, blue and gold of Captain Marvel was pretty much dashed at the announcement at SDCC that Brie Larson had indeed been cast in the role. Who knows? Maybe I’m wrong. She might be perfect for the role. And…

I just fell in love with Hayley Atwell… again

As I mentioned before in another post, ABC cancelled Agent Carter.   However, if the fans… AND the stars of the show, get their way, there just might be a Season Three. Recently, there was a petition circulating that at last count had over 115K signatures. And Hayley Atwell, who’s already committed to her new series Conviction, recently told attendees at MegaCon in Orlando that she would do “whatever it takes” to bring Agent Margaret Carter back for another season, stating she might even “shoot on the weekends” during production of Conviction.   Dominic Cooper…

I Know My Value – a Postmortem

In the past couple of weeks, RT has been after me to write my promised follow-up to the Supergirl article, regarding the ABC series Agent Carter. I had told him that once I’d finished watching all of the episodes of the former, I’d work on an article for the latter, telling you why you should be watching this show. Now I have the task of telling you why you should have watched this show. Agent Carter was cancelled by ABC this week. There were hints that this would happen. First,…

Hang The Crepe

“I know my value. Anyone else’s opinion doesn’t really matter.”   Marvel’s Agent Carter has been cancelled.  Hunter will be going into mourning, now.  I expect an obituary from him shortly.  This truly sucks.  Margaret Carter was a great character and Hayley Atwell portrayed her ably.   She was also a role model for a lot of young women.  It’s a sad day.
