The mind-blowing saga that began in Marvel's The Avengers continues in ABC's action-packed series, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - The Complete First Season.
In the wake of The Battle of New York, the world has changed forever. An extraordinary landscape of wonders has been revealed! In response, mysteriously resurrected Agent Phil Coulson assembles an elite team of skilled agents and operatives: Melinda May, Grant Ward, Leo Fitz, Jemma Simmons and new recruit/computer hacker Skye. Together, they investigate the new, the strange, and the unknown across the globe, protecting the ordinary from the extraordinary. But every answer unearths even more tantalizing questions that reverberate across the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe: Who is "The Clairvoyant"? What is Hydra's sinister master plan; what dark secret lies behind Skye's puzzling origins, and most importantly of all, who can be trusted?
Cast: "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." stars Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Chloe Bennet as Skye, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Brett Dalton as Agent Grand Ward, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz and Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons.

It can be a hell of job fighting bad guys on Gotham. And if you're a crime crusader like Detective James Gordon, you have to watch for pillars as well as swinging fists...because pillars always like to hit heads.
Actor Ben McKenzie who plays Gordon clunked his noggin against such pillar during a fisticuffs scene on Friday. McKenzie, who celebrated his birthday yesterday, Ben McKenzie injured on set of 'Gotham'posted some photos of his gash on Instagram saying, "Holy concrete wall, Batman!" and "Happy Birthday to me. Fight sequence gone awry. Don't ram your head into concrete pillars kids."
All bandaged up, McKenzie gave props to his medic, exclaiming, "Doc Sherman at New York-Presbyterian, you are a career saver. Thanks for stitching me up nice. Back to work Monday."
Gotham premieres Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on Fox and follows the Batman lore during the winged crusader's childhood days after he loses his parents.

We learned yesterday that Marvel Studios' first Netflix series, "Daredevil,"is set to reveal some details at next month's New York Comic Con, but that isn't going to stop showrunner Stephen S. DeKnight from sharing a few early details! Speaking with Paste Magazine, DeKnight drops some hints about what fans can expect from his take on the man without fear.
"With this version of Daredevil,"he explains, "we wanted it to be grounded, gritty, as realistic as we could portray. That naturally fits in with the Daredevil character. Matt Murdock, on a regular basis, would get the shit beat out of him. That's one thing that makes him a great character. He's not super strong. He's not invulnerable. In every aspect, he's a man that's just pushed himself to the limits, he just has senses that are better than a normal humans. He is human. The other thing that really drew me to this character is that he's one of the most morally grey of the heroes... He's a lawyer by day, and he's taken this oath. But every night he breaks that oath, and goes out and does very violent things."
DeKnight goes on to hint that, as fans might expect, Frank Miller's run on the title is serving as a huge inspiration.
"The image that always stuck in my mind was the Frank Miller Elektra run where he's holding Bullseye over the street,"DeKnight continues, "and he lets Bullseye go because he doesn't want Bullseye to ever kill anyone again. When I read that originally, when I was young, I'd never seen anything like that in comics. Superman scoops up the villain and puts them in jail. This time the hero didn't do that. It was a morally grey ground that I found absolutely fascinating. There are two sides to this character. He's literally one bad day away from becoming the The Punisher!"
Marvel's first original series on Netflix is executive produced by DeKnight and Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods, "Buffy The Vampire Slayer"), who is writing the first two episodes of the series along with Marvel TV's Jeph Loeb ("Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,""Smallville").
"Marvel's Daredevil"is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

Warner Bros. TV is rapidly expanding its live-action DC Comics TV universe. This season, it is going from one to four primetime series, returning Arrow and freshmen The Flash, Gotham and Constantine, and already is prepping another major broadcast franchise with Supergirl. Now the studio is expanding the DC brand to cable drama with Titans, a project that is nearing a pilot order at TNT. Titans is one of three TNT drama pilots stuck on the runaway, awaiting a formal green light as the network is undergoing a regime change. The other two are Lumen from Amblin TV and the Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay-produced Untitled Cocaine project (formerly Cocaine Cowboys).
Written by Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman and executive-turned-scribe Marc Haimes, Titans revolves around the eponymous group of young Super Heroes-to-be from the DC Universe. The action series centers on Dick Grayson (probably best known for his alter ego as Robin), who emerges from the shadow of Batman to become Nightwing, the leader of a fearless band of new Super Heroes including Starfire, Raven and many others. Goldsman executive produces, with Haimes serving as co-executive producer for WBTV's cable division Warner Horizon.
WBTV has been mining the Titans characters on the animation side with the kids series Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go! on sister Cartoon Network.

She fought the good fight in the Marvel comics and the Captain America films, now Agent Peggy Carter fights it again on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The badass heroine, played by Hayley Atwell, will be seen in a 1940s-era flashback kicking off the Sept. 23 season premiere of the ABC series — and TV Guide Magazine has the first look!
Back in the day, Carter was an integral member of the S.H.I.E.L.D. prototype group Strategic Scientific Reserve and her path was similar to that of Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), who must now rebuild S.H.I.E.L.D. from the ground up after the seismic events of last season.
"Coulson is a big student of history and wants to return to those old ideals of Agent Carter's time," says executive producer Jed Whedon. "He's, like, 'Let's be the S.H.I.E.L.D. we were meant to be!' He wants to do the job right this time."
Atwell, who will star in the 2015 spinoff series Marvel's Agent Carter, is joined in the flashback by Kenneth Choi and Neal McDonough, playing their Captain America characters Jim Morita and Dum Dum Dugan, respectively. No word yet if either actor has signed for the Agent Carter series.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns Tuesday, Sept. 23 at 9/8c on ABC.
