The Expendables 3: Mickey Rourke Returns, Steven Seagal Could Be Next

The Expendables 3 will apparently be heading to battle with its team mission coordinator. According to franchise star/screenwriter, Sylvester Stallone via Twitter, Mickey Rourke will indeed be returning for the unmitigated action-infused threequel after having sat out last year's The Expendables 2. However, Stallone still seems to be working on procuring another former box-office badass as he also revealed this morning that he's talking with Steven Seagal.

Rourke will be reprising his role as Tool, a grizzled veteran of the mercenary game who helps the Expendables team plan their various contractual wetwork gigs in his tattoo parlor hangout. After being seemingly set for a return in last year's second Expendables film, Rourke had dropped out, likely due to scheduling conflicts. Indeed, it's been a busy few years for the actor since the momentum created from his comeback-launching performance in 2008's The Wrestler has yet to stop with the 2011-2012 period loaded with roles in several action thrillers that may have held him up. Among them, was the 2011 myth-inspired Immortals with Man of Steel star, Henry Cavil. Rourke now returns to The Expendables franchise after having reprised another one of his major roles as Marv in this fall's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

Stallone welcomed back the star with a simple tweet.

"Mighty Mickey is back............"

However, this morning, Sly also hinted that he's in talks with the world's most famous straight-to-video action star who moonlights as a blues singer and New Orleans police officer.

"....Calling SEAGAL this morning."

The Expendables 3 will certainly be a critical litmus test to see where the recent comeback of old-school style action films now stands; especially after recent solo starring efforts by Stallone with Bullet to the Head and co-star, Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand both performed abysmally at the box-office earlier this year. With a director on board in Patrick Hughes, who Stallone calls "new blood," you can certainly expect some thematic adjustments this time around. However, fitting the franchise's earned reputation for surreal stockpiles of legendary action stars, it will be heading to theaters with not only its repertory cast of action players, but with a new array of famous names like Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, and apparently Carl Weathers. If Seagal ends up on board, that would be a major check for the growing list of names which this franchise has procured.

The Expendables 3 tests cinematic limits with multitudes of manhood when it hits theaters sometime in 2014.

Pacific Rim: Monstrous Main Trailer Is Unleashed!

Pacific Rim, which will unarguably be the best film this summer to feature monolithic mechs battling large, licentious leviathan has released what's being billed as its "main trailer." It's a moniker that's definitely fitting, since it is by far the most comprehensive carnage-infused montage of robot-on-monster violence we've ever seen.

The highly-anticipated project from visionary director, Guillermo del Toro brings back the old-school charm of the Japanese-born genre of "giant robots vs. giant monster," reinventing it with stunning state-of-the-art visuals. However, with Del Toro at the helm, you can expect a deeper insight into the characters and a broader commentary on what humanity has to become in order to battle these creatures.

A portal to another dimension opens somewhere beneath the Pacific Ocean, sending colossal creatures to our world called "Kaiju" (a homage to the giant creatures of classic Japanese cinema), who wreak unmitigated destruction upon major cities worldwide. Mankind strikes back with the Jaeger Program, creating human-piloted robots immense enough to tackle those insatiable invaders in super-sized street-fights on which the balance of civilization itself rests. Now, years later, with mankind seemingly on the losing end of this war, the only hope lies with a washed-up former Jaeger pilot named Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and an eager, but inexperienced newcomer, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), who both take control of a seemingly obsolete Jaeger unit for a critical mission.

Despite the eye-popping (some would say superficial) footage of this trailer, there is apparently some deep drama hidden amongst the giant-robotic bells and whistles. Interestingly enough, this new trailer emphasizes that the Jaeger pilots not only share a neural connection in controlling the robot (which we already knew), but also share their "minds and memories." It is likely through this idea that much of the "human" drama could resonate. These sequences of subconscious sojourn could provide some of the commentary on the human condition that Del Toro has implied the film would carry as early as last year during Pacific Rim's Comic-Con panel.

Pacific Rim looks to make poignant pathos-packed commentary while hitting giant monsters in the face with flying hammerfists when it arrives at theaters on July 12. Check out the intense, action-packed new trailer below!

The Avengers 2: Is Jeremy Renner OUT As Hawkeye?

The Avengers 2 may be far from fleshed out, but a recent rumor seems to imply that it could be heading to theaters without its ace archer, Hawkeye...at least the one played by Jeremy Renner.

According to a report by ComicBookMovie's "The Daily Superhero," one of their "Hollywood sources" claims that the chances of Renner returning to reprise his role as the purple-clad Clint Barton, aka Hawkeye are "the tiniest." It seems that critical comments made by Renner last year expressing disappointment over the way his Hawkeye character was handled could very well have soured his relationship with Marvel Studios or current maestro of The Avengers franchise, Joss Whedon. As Renner told Total Film back in August of 2012:

"For 90% of the movie, I'm not the character I signed on to play," says Renner, before homing in on the decision to have Hawkeye brainwashed by Loki from the get-go. "It's kind of a vacancy. [He's] not even a bad guy, because there's not really a consciousness to him."

Adding: "To take away who that character is and just have him be this robot, essentially, and have him be this minion for evil that Loki uses... I was limited, you know what I mean? I was a terminator in a way. Fun stunts. But is there any sort of emotional content or thought process? No."

Now, nearly a year after those comments were made, we do have a timeline for Marvel Studio's "Phase Two" of films, which just kicked off with Iron Man 3, continuing with Thor: The Dark World on November 8, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on April 4, 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014, and culminating with The Avengers 2 on May 1, 2015. However, by the time we get to that grand stage where Hawkeye could once again shine, the field of potential team members will likely be rotated with the introduction of new S.H.I.E.L.D. members in the lead-up films. In fact, next year's Captain America sequel will introduce new primary characters like Emily VanCamp's "Sharon Carter/Agent 13" and Anthony Mackie's "Sam Wilson/The Falcon." Plus, with the addition of signature Avengers members, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver looking solid for The Avengers 2, there may not be enough elbow room for Hawkeye to maneuver his bow.

All of these things, coupled with an apparently unhappy cast member with plenty of other cinematic options do not add up to good chances of a return. In fact, the report speculates that there's a greater chance that Hawkeye could be recast and possibly integrated into the television offshoot of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which premieres this fall on ABC. The recasting of a major character like this would hardly be unprecedented, just ask Terrence Howard, who lost his role as James Rhodes/War Machine to Don Cheadle after some behind-the-scenes drama. Of course, the even bigger, greener example would be the exit of Edward Norton as the MCU's version of Bruce Banner/The Hulk, making way for Mark Ruffalo's reinvention of the character in The Avengers last year. (And in a post-credits cameo in Iron Man 3...for what that scene was worth, anyway.)

At this point, we're dealing with nothing but rumors, but it is true that Renner's Hawkeye, who had a promising debut in 2011's Thor, was kind of disappointing in The Avengers. However, it's difficult to imagine that the creative minds would let some comments by the actor be the sole reason to 86 a major character from the biggest North American box-office opening weekend performer of all-time. It may be the case that it all depends on the feasibility of keeping Hawkeye in the lineup of the mega-team super-sequel without the detrimental crowding. At the moment, that fate rests in the hands of Joss Whedon, who is currently hammering out the script.

Riddick: Debut Trailer Deals Death In The Dark

Riddick, the long-awaited third entry in the film series started with Pitch Black has released its debut trailer showing that Vin Diesel's titular titan has not lost a single eye-shining step.

Certainly, as far as trailers go, this one could hardly be classified as a "teaser." In fact, if there was ever a movie trailer that contradicted the old adage "less is more," then this one just might fit the bill. Coming to the web via Machinima, this sin-slaying spot clocking in at 2:31 pretty much lays the groundwork for not just the plot, but seemingly everything that happens in the film...in their likely chronological order. Indeed, this is one transparent trailer that has one goal in mind: Showing you the unadulterated, unapologetic, ass-kicking action that you've come to expect from the Riddick series. -- And, yeah, it delivers.

With Riddick stuck on yet another alien planet with unforgivable elements while being chased by bloodthirsty bounty hunters, one might think that it's business as usual. Well, as the extremely-exposé-friendly footage reveals, the real threat of this film isn't coming from the hubris-heavy headhunters, but from the planet's asinine indigenous creatures who really don't give two craps about who's right or wrong in this space drama. Thusly, Diesel's Riddick must now join forces with the group, who just minutes earlier were looking to put his severed head in a box for bounty when they are overrun by the not-so-friendly fauna. Amongst the group are Battlestar Galactica's Katee Sackhoff and former WWE wrestler and future Guardians of the Galaxy Drax, Dave Bautista.

Fans may notice this film being smaller in scale than the over-the-top grandiosity displayed in the last film, 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick. Well, that tends to happen when a franchise's previous entry gets a packed $105 million budget and barely makes enough to pay it back. This time, the franchise's regular director, David Twohy, working off a significantly reduced budget of $38 million, has crafted a more insular and suspenseful film, which certainly hearkens back to 2000's original unlikely franchise kickoff with Pitch Black.

Riddick goes hillbilly handfishin' in the sand for dragons when it hits theaters on September 6. Check out the debut trailer below!

Mission: Impossible 5 Gets Iron Man 3 Writer

Mission: Impossible 5, the recently confirmed sequel to Tom Cruise's signature action franchise will reportedly be working off a script from the writer of the current record-breaking box-office king, Iron Man 3. According to The Hollywood Reporter, screenwriter, Drew Pearce will pen this next entry in the long-running spy series.

Pearce, certainly riding high at the moment with a hugely-successful and lucrative box-office giant now on his resume, actually has his future dance card punched, having worked on the screenplay for Guillermo del Toro's "giant monsters vs. giant robots" summer epic, Pacific Rim and is even typing away at putting more words in Robert Downey Jr.'s mouth with the Sherlock Holmes 3 script. Procuring Mi5 certainly is the latest cherry on top of what seems to be a cake year for the wordsmith.

Coupling the report of the film's new scribe with last week's announcement that Cruise himself has indeed been locked-in for his fifth go as espionage agent, Ethan Hunt, the trifecta needed for this film to move forward now waits for confirmation on who will occupy the director's chair. At the moment, the predominant rumor is that Christopher McQuarrie, who recently directed Cruise in last year's Jack Reacher and 2008's Valkyrie was the helmer with whom Cruise was most interested in collaborating for Mi5. In fact, THR's report implies that McQuarrie is currently "in discussions" to take the job.

Mission: Impossible 5 (not the official title) is probably brainstorming a clever, but disappointing villain twist for when it hits theaters at a date to be determined. (Although 2015 seems to be a safe ballpark estimate.)

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Releases A New Full-Length Trailer

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. continues its tour-de-tease today with the ultimate culmination: The full-length trailer for the series. 

Clocking in at 2:48, this is a true substantive look at this fall's new Marvel Cinematic Universe spinoff featuring a new team of superhero-sighting suits keeping the world safe from incursions from the powerful elements of the unknown. This time, we get a look at things from the perspective of Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) a S.H.I.E.L.D. (or as he dutifully reminds us, "Strategic Homeland Intervention Enforcement and Logistics Division") agent who's about to receive one hell of a clearance upgrade and is surprised to learn its primary perk: Getting to work under the (presumed) dead in Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg). And with that, the brief mystery of Level 7 is revealed.

On another front, a well-meaning, but pesky hacker, Skye (Chloe Bennet) tries to protect the latest super-powered blip on the radar (J. August Richards,) from becoming the next thing to be mysteriously whisked away by the seemingly shadowy government agency, when she finds herself getting nabbed...and then recruited. (Richards' character is rumored to be Elvin Haliday, aka "Rage" from Marvel's The New Warriors.)

With the action samples proving intense as promised, we're also properly introduced to teammates, tech/gizmo guy, Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker), biochemist, Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge), and the ass-kicking airborne pilot, Agent Melinda May (Ming Na-Wen).

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. makes a self-note to never tell Agent Coulson there's no way when it hits TV this fall on its scheduled time of Tuesdays, 8pm on ABC. Check out the full trailer below!

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is wasting little time with its hype machine and has unleashed yet another teasing sneak peak promo clip.

Apparently, even with the new images and debut footage that hit over the weekend, plus today's unveiling of new photos, they must have felt that fans just weren't left ravenous enough. Now, a second, albeit extremely brief promo clip has surfaced showing some new footage which, above all else, tells us that with S.H.I.E.L.D., a fireplace is never just a fireplace.

As the clip concludes, Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson welcomes us to "Level 7." -- Likely a moniker that's somehow attached to his small team of S.H.I.E.L.D. specialists with whom he'll be investigating weird cases set throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe. -- Just on the small screen. Indeed, the folks at Marvel and ABC have scattered the breadcrumbs and we are just following the trail and desperately gobbling every little bit of it up as we move towards the show's debut.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. tells us what "Level 7" means when it hits TV this fall on its scheduled time of Tuesdays, 8pm on ABC.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire: New Katniss Poster

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, this fall's quarter-quelling second quest has released a new, some would say bizarre poster on its official Instagram account featuring the lovely figure of Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen standing mightily atop a cliff.

The poster seems to resemble an old-timey image of some type of iconic figure standing majestically above the wild of nature like Theodore Roosevelt. (The only example I could conjure at the moment.) Yet, it also seems to carry a kind of propagandist vibe. -- It's a theme that, coupled with the quoted line from the original Suzanne Collins novel gracing the top, fits the plot of the film. Certainly, Katniss, aka "The Girl on Fire" has become a symbol of hope and defiance against the totalitarian government of The Capital and its devious puppetmaster, President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

Indeed, the events of this film, which has Snow and his new game-making conspirator, Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) utilize a loophole in The Hunger Games tournament to bring back past winners to squelch any chance of them becoming political threats like Katniss has become. However, it's an act that will ultimately bring about a revolution which will place Katniss as a central figure, high above the proverbial mountain peaks, as the poster represents. -- Oh, and also, Josh Hutcherson's Peeta Mellark will be there too to cover her with mud and waste more bread.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire gives us a teachable moment about the potential of reality shows to bring about social upheaval when it hits theaters on November 22. Check out the full, majestically-located Katniss poster in full below!

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Reveals New Photos From The Pilot

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has already made itself one of the most anticipated television shows of all time. Just after getting the debut teaser promo, ABC has officially released a trio of new stills from this fall's pilot episode.

While they hardly unveil any substantive answers, they do provide an interesting look at the show. In fact, one photo shows Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson in an interrogation room sitting across a table from Chloe Bennet's quirky computer hacker, "Skye" with Brett Dalton's "Agent Grant Ward" looking on menacingly; a scene which seemingly implies that the Skye character is the quintessential noob in this story. It could very well be the case that the pilot's plot involves her stumbling into some dangerous circumstances which eventually leads to her joining the team. -- So, I guess that's a slight reveal of sorts.

Further solidifying the central nature of Bennet's Skye character, is another photo set behind a glass wall with the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo prominently displayed showing Agent Coulson staring ominously at Skye, almost unsure of what to make of her. We're still somewhat far away from any serious plot details getting out, but, as evidenced by the third photo, The Avengers director, Joss Whedon has stepped behind the camera to make sure this TV offshoot of the Marvel Cinematic Universe goes swimmingly.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets a pass for now on using the now-clichéd television trend of cute hacker chicks when it appears sometime this fall on its scheduled time of Tuesdays, 8pm on ABC. Check out the new photos below!

X-Men: Days Of Future Past: New Photo With Wolverine And Beast

X-Men: Days of Future Past continues its tweet-tastic reveals with its second successive look by director, Bryan Singer at the 1973 segment of the time-bending sequel, this time with Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Nicholas Hoult's Beast.

Just last week we got our first look at James McAvoy's younger version of Professor Charles Xavier in his oddly-futuristic wheelchair, dressed as the long-lost Festrunk Brother. (After all, he is a "wild and crazy GUY!") However, this brief visit to 1973 (as confirmed by Singer's tweet) actually raises a lot more questions besides the obvious "what were they smoking when they picked those outfits?"

Discerning fans of the X-Men film series will note a number paradoxes in this new photo which has the potential to collapse the universe quicker than The Ghostbusters crossing their proton streams. By all that we know, Hoult's younger version of Beast never met Wolverine and certainly never did so in the X-Mansion, where the photo appears to take place. Also, anyone who saw 2011's X-Men: First Class knows that Beast, in a failed attempt to "cure" his mutantism, accidentally accelerated his mutation and permanently transformed into the big blue furball we all know and love. Even an earlier twit-pic from Singer shows an older version of Hoult's Beast in full blue beastial glory set for this film. -- Yet, here he is, supposedly 10 years after the events of First Class, looking like he fell into a vat of Nair. (An explanation we may not want to dismiss.)

There are a number of potential theories, the easiest of which to grasp, is that the time-traveling aspect of the film, which speculation points to centering on the character, Bishop, will give the timeline of the original X-Men Trilogy and First Class a MAJOR overhaul. (Which is probably a good thing, especially after how X-Men: The Last Stand turned out.) This could also mean that the Wolverine we're seeing is not the Wolverine from 1973, but rather, the contemporary one, gone back in time. (Especially if we are to presume that 1973 Wolverine has yet to get the adamantium skeleton/claws treatment, becoming Weapon X.)

X-Men: Days of Future Past does its best to contradict canon and confuse the hell out you when it hits theaters on July 18, 2014.

I, Frankenstein Reveals Motion Poster

I, Frankenstein, the upcoming futuristic take on the landmark 1818 Mary Shelley novel and 1931 Universal hallmark of a film has debuted a motion poster on IGN giving us our first look at star, Aaron Eckhart as the man-made monster, who in this film, is given the Biblical-inspired moniker, "Adam."

The film is based on a graphic novel and screenplay by Kevin Grevioux, an actor who also holds writing credits on all the Underworld films. Certainly, based off this one image, the quasi-Gothic scenery and action influences of that series is present. According to what is known of the story, the setting is a dystopian future where humanity is plagued by gargoyles and demons. Eckhart's Adam is created by scientist, Dr. Victor Frankenstein (Aden Young) in an attempt to upgrade mankind's place in this horrific world. However, Adam, who apparently has been endowed with an immortality that these two evil forces covet, now finds himself in the middle of a struggle between the warring factions of ferocious flyers and, perhaps, makind's own ambitions.

The motion poster, while presenting a style that's a bit conventional to movie posters as of late (Star Trek Into Darkness might have a gripe or two), it does manage to show that Eckhart's Adam isn't looking to sit back and let these forces decide his newborn fate. Armed with a gruesome-looking blade, this reanimated ass-beater looks like he won't even need to flip a coin to decide whether to gank some gargoyles and dominate some demons. Billy Nighy (veteran of the Underworld series), Yvonne Strahovski (former femme-fatale of Chuck), Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard), and Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings films) also round out the cast, with Stuart Beattie, screenwriter of the Pirates of the Caribbean films and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra taking the director's chair.

I, Frankenstein comes alive to reap vengeance on gargoyles, demons, and the "bad" element of fire in general when it hits theaters on January 24, 2014. Check out the lenticular motion poster below!

Gremlins Reboot Film In The Works Over At Warner

Gremlins appears to be the next classic franchise lining up to get the reboot treatment. Bloody Disgusting reports that Warner Bros will be looking to hit the proverbial F5 button on the popular franchise, rather than continue on with a long-belated third film, as persistent rumors used to tout.

Beginning with the extremely successful summer 1984 Steven Spielberg-produced effort, the popular comedic horror franchise was followed in 1990 with a less-lucrative, but far quirkier, meta-inspired, (and some may argue superior) sequel. Now, some three decades after it first hit theaters (not to watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs) the diminutive demonic green-skinned creatures who were once cute little furballs that dared to eat after midnight will return in a far more advanced cinematic era beyond the puppetry that brought them to life. While no director (or stars, for that matter,) was named, author/screenwriter, Seth Grahame-Smith who seems to have a finger in many genre pies these days has been procured as a producer, along with David Katzenberg.

Grahame-Smith has penned genre-bending novels like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (the film adaptation is on tap) and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (which did not translate well to the big screen last year,) as well as the script for Tim Burton's remake of classic horror soap, Dark Shadows. He will surely add his talent for nuance and satire to this fan-fave of a franchise from the heyday of legwarmers, Jheri curls, and Thriller jackets. It will be interesting to see if all the bells and whistles of today's filmmaking process will benefit what made Gremlins such a crowd-pleaser back in the day. -- If not, then moviegoers may stay away from this reboot the way Gizmo stays away from bright light.

Man Of Steel: New TV Spot Stands Proud With New Footage

Man of Steel has already been using its promotional super-breath to send various trailers and promos flying our way. However, the latest TV spot officially released online by Warner breaks the trend, since it arrives filled with mostly new footage of next month's big-screen return of The Blue Bomber starring Henry Cavill.

While one should hardly call it a significant game-changer as far as perception of the film goes, this brief 33 second spot manages to cram enough eye-popping action to pack big enough of a wallop to send Michael Shannon's General Zod and his crew of Kryptonian convicts back to the lonely confines of The Phantom Zone where their megalomaniacal musings will go mostly unnoticed amongst the apparent abyss.

The clip starts with foreboding lines by Laurence Fishburne's Daily Planet publisher, Perry White anticipating a not-so-warm welcome from the hard-to-humble human race of a virtual god. After that, a mind-blowing montage of madness with the wise voice of Kevin Costner's Jonathan Kent takes us through some of the intense obstacles that the space-orphan-turned-superhero will have to endure in order to come to terms with his true self. (A goal that hipsters merely think they can accomplish by backpacking through Europe.)

Man of Steel never accepts the option of "not" when it hits theaters on June 14.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Unleashes Teaser Promo

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted a spectacular, action-packed teaser promo over the weekend as promised upon Friday's official pick-up announcement by ABC.

While predictably leaving us short of several critical details like why Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson still draws breath in this Marveliffic world, it does lay out the groundwork pretty well for the show's structure as a procedural series of sorts. In fact, Coulson himself says it quite clearly:

"We work the cases that S.H.I.E.L.D. hasn't classified. The strange, the unknown. It's not just 'Spy vs. Spy' anymore. The whole world's in on the action."

So, it looks like this will be a kind of "supernatural case of the week" type of series akin to The X-Files or Fringe, except on a much larger scale and certainly within a much larger world that has been shaped by the emergence of the Titans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In that spirit, we see the cast of Coulson's fellow agents in action, along with footage of a powerful bodyslamming, building-jumping character played by J. August Richards, a veteran of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel making his return in front of the camera for The Avengers helmer, Joss Whedon, who directs this series pilot.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. sneaks back later to touch "Lola" when it debuts sometime this fall on ABC.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Officially Picked Up, First Cast Photo, New Logo!

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is now official over at ABC. The network would announce via Twitter that the show has indeed been picked up and has the greenlight for the fall season. -- And with that bit of fantastic news comes some critical reveals: The unveiling of the show's logo AND the very first cast photo showing that, without a shadow of a doubt, COULSON LIVES!

While the Joss Whedon-directed pilot to this television extension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has recently completed its shoot, it did seem odd that such a surefire hit of a project had not yet received the official nod from ABC to be christened as a proper series. However, when news came of the show's official title last month, along with more casting additions, it seemed all but inevitable. Now, any modicum of doubt whatsoever has been vanquished with ABC's reveal, which also promises more news on the show next week. However, it seems we may get even more before then, since the very first teaser promo will debut THIS SUNDAY NIGHT during the season finale of Once Upon A Time.

The cast photo and logo were subsequently revealed by Entertainment Weekly and what they show are a sextet of sin-stomping smooth customers led by the one and only (mysteriously resurrected) mega fan fave, Agent Phil Coulson played once again by Clark Gregg, thanks to an apparent deficiency in Loki's killing abilities during last year's mega-movie, The Avengers.

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. gets ready to tear evil a new one, all while wearing suits and sensible shoes when it hits the small screen sometime this fall! Check out the very first cast photo below and bask in Coulson's undead shades-sporting badassery!
