GHOST RIDER BEING CAST ON AGENTS OF SHIELD07/01/16 @ 10:00 am EST
As part of its upcoming Marvel NOW! initiative, Marvel Comics has announced a series starring an all-new Avengers team: the "U.S.Avengers." The book comes from writer Al Ewing and artist Paco Medina, the creative team currently on "New Avengers." The book also looks like it will continue where "New Avengers" leaves off once the dust has settled from "Civil War II."
The book will see Sunspot's Avengers Idea Mechanics evolve into the American Intelligence Mechanics, a new organization endorsed by the government and poised to replace S.H.I.E.L.D. In addition to Sunspot and "New Avengers" members Cannonball, Pod and Squirrel Girl, the new roster will include Red Hulk, a new Iron Patriot and a Captain America from the future. The new Iron Patriot is Toni Yinsen, daughter of Ho Yinsen (the scientist that helped Tony Stark build his original Iron Man armor). The new Cap is actually a future version of Danielle Cage, the daughter of Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Cage Cap previously appeared in the Al Ewing-penned "Avengers: Ultron Forever" storyline.
"We wanted a couple of members that’d speak to the U.S. in the title — hence super-scientist and supporting player Dr. Toni Ho stepping up to the main team as the new Iron Patriot, and General Ross waiting in the wings as the Red Hulk," Ewing told The Washington Post. "And, of course, Danielle Cage, the Captain America of about thirty years in the future, who’ll be joining us for at least the first arc, as an enemy from her time comes to ours to stir up trouble."
"U.S.Avengers" launches this fall from Marvel Comics.

'PACIFIC RIM 2' STARRING JOHN BOYEGA GETS 2018 RELEASE DATE07/01/16 @ 9:51 am EST
Maybe Ghost Rider
is coming to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
. after all.
Earlier this month, an Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Comic-Con advertisement on the side of a San Diego light rail showed some fiery chains.Most fans assumed that the fiery chains belonged to Hellfire who’s got a long history with Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s
Skye. After all Hellfire’s alter ego James “J.T.” Taylor did make a brief appearance on Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Season 3. Not only that, but Hellfire does share some roots with the original Ghost Rider.
Most fans ruled out the possibility of Ghost Rider assuming the special effects required would either be too expensive for TV or that Marvel would want to save the character for Netflix where they could take a darker tone than network TV. However, a new casting notice suggests that Ghost Rider might actually be coming to Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.
, even though it might not be the one that most fans might expect.
Most people know of motorcycle-riding Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider, which is the version Nicolas Cage played in the movies. However, there are other versions of Ghost Rider that have appeared in the comics.
The characters in the casting notice are listed as a pair of Latino brothers. One is classified as "the most dangerous person in the room" and the other is "paralyzed in a wheelchair". If that sounds familiar, it's probably because it bears an eerily close resemblance to Robbie and Gabe Reyes, who starred in the 2014 Marvel NOW! Ghost Rider
The series, by Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore, was a new take on Ghost Rider
focusing on the brotherly bond between its main characters Robbie and Gabe. Robbie has a natural talent for mechanics, but nothing is more important to him than the health of his disabled brother Gabe.
In addition to the classic powers we've come to know, Reyes also had access to the Hell-Charger, a hellfire imbued 1969 Dodge Charger. Robbie gets his powers after an unfortunate run-in with Dr. Zabo's hit squad costs him his life, blowing up a car in all the gunfire. Ironically that car is what allows him to come back, as the spirit of Eli Morrow gives him new life and his new powers.
It would be an interesting addition to the show, and if you're going to bring inGhost Rider
, this is certainly a unique way to do so.
Also, keep in mind that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D was shifted back to 10 PM to allow the show to have an edgier tone.

"THE FLASH" ADDS "HARRY POTTER" STAR TOM FELTON AS SERIES REGULAR 07/01/16 @ 9:47 am EST
With Star Wars
hero John Boyega now aboard to star, Universal Pictures has roped off a release date for Pacific Rim 2
. Legendary’s action sequel from director Steven S. DeKnight will engage audiences and kaijus
on February 23, 2018. The film has that post-Presidents Day frame to itself for the time being; it’s nestled between the openings of two Marvel movies: Black Panther

Production begins in the fourth quarter on the film based on the world created by Guillermo del Toro and Travis Beacham. The 2013 original starring Idris Elba and Charlie Hunnam shot up $411M worldwide, with its overseas take more than tripling domestic. Del Toro directed it based on a script he penned with Beacham.

ARCHER & ARMSTRONG HEAD FOR A COULROPHOBIC’S NIGHTMARE… CLOWNTOWN06/30/16 @ 3:07 pm EST
"The Flash" just got a touch more magical."Harry Potter" star Tom Felton has joined the hit CW show as series regular character Julian Dorn, who TVLine describes as "a fellow CSI at the Central City Police Department who suspects there's more to Barry Allen than just his good guy reputation."
The character sounds very similar to one described in an earlier report, which revealed that "The Flash" was looking to cast "Barry's slightly older, slightly geekier contemporary, a guy who is as smart as he is intuitive. As such, this newcomer doesn't buy Barry’s nice guy routine and sets out to learn what he's hiding -- all while concealing some secrets of his own."
Felton is best known for his role as Draco Malfoy in the "Harry Potter" series of films. Since then, he has also appeared in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and "The Apparition."
In the Season 2 finale, Grant Gustin's Barry Allen went back in time and prevented his mother's murder, triggering a famous linchpin event from the comics. While we've yet to see how this massive change in the show's timeline will affect the series as it moves into its third season, "Flashpoint" -- the title of the season three premiere episode -- gives fans a major, major hint.
The major DC Comics event from 2011 of the same name saw Barry Allen trying to navigate a totally altered world -- one wherein his mother Nora was alive. "Flashpoint" also served as the lead-in to DC's New 52 relaunch, the effects of which are still being felt today as part of DC's current Rebirth initiative.
After revealing the Season 3 premiere's title on Twitter, Gustin added, "We're definitely doing this ['Flashpoint'] thing our own way…. This will be its own thing."
Starring Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes and more, "The Flash" returns to The CWon October 4 at 8 pm EST.

DC Comics does like its Superman shield logo.
And looks harshly at anyone who might come close trying to use it in their own trademarks…Such this registration for the Super Sports League using this logo.
A clothing line from Aqua Beba
The mascot for Move Solutions
Diamond seller Casale, Mitchell
And E-cigarettes company Captain Obvious
Plenty of businesses do seem to use the shield or similar unchallenged.
The rule seems to be – use it, just don’t try and trademark it yourself!
