Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Lands on the Cover of Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly has just debuted the cover to their next issue and it features Joss Whedon and “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” stars Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg. In the issue, EW says Whedon talks about all things “Buffy,” “Firefly,” and The Avengers, but he made time to drop an interesting quote about the upcoming TV series too.

“This is basically a TV series of ‘The Zeppo’ [episode of Buffy], which was a very deliberate deconstruction of a Buffy episode in order to star the person who mattered the least,” Whedon says. “The people who are ignored are the people I’ve been writing as my heroes from day one. There’s a world of superheroes and superstars, they’re celebrities, and that’s a complicated world — particularly complicated for people who don’t have the superpowers, the disenfranchised. Now obviously there’s going to be hijinks and hilarity and sex and gadgets and all the things that made people buy the comics. But that’s what the show really is about to me, and that’s what Clark Gregg embodies: the Everyman.”

“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” will premiere on ABC on Tuesday, September 24 at 8 p.m.

For more with Whedon — including his love-hate relationship with Twitter and why he’s worried about our sequel culture — pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands Friday, August 23.

This Week’s Entertainment Weekly Cover: Superman At 75

For three-quarters of a century, Superman has been fighting the good fight, keeping Earth and its inhabitants safe from all manner of villainy and disaster. As the DC Comics character turns 75, he’s also getting a major big-screen relaunch in director Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, opening Friday.

So for this week’s cover, Entertainment Weekly is taking a look back at all the critical moments in Superman’s evolution from dimestore hero to American pop-culture icon.

The magazine starts with his first appearance in 1938′s Action Comics #1, and tracks him along every major step (and occasional misstep) up through his reemergence in the form of Man of Steel‘s angry, passionate, lost Superman, as played by Henry Cavill.

Features in the magazine include:

- Origin Story: EW dives into the long, hard making of a hero with a look back at how Superman’s mythology evolved over the years. Find out how animation gave him the ability to fly, where his chrome-domed nemesis Lex Luthor first appeared, and how radio made Kryptonite his one and only weakness.

- Superman Returns director Bryan Singer on the “whimsical” tone of his attempted reboot of the hero — why “not everyone responded.”

- Man of Steel producer Christopher Nolan on the “science fiction-based” approach to retelling Superman’s origin as an alien invader saga.

- Cavill on how a lonely life as a boarding school student fueled his performance as Superman, the ultimate outsider.

Entertainment Weekly’s Summer 2013 Calendar Issue Features Hugh Jackman As Wolverine On The Cover

Hugh Jackman will return for his sixth appearance on the big screen as Logan this summer in The Wolverine and in preparation for the film, he will appear on the cover of Entertainment Weekly’s “Summer 2013 Calendar” issue. The magazine also spoke with him about working on this film as compared to his first solo effort, which didn’t get the reception he had hoped for.

“Somehow the first Wolverine movie ended up looking like the fourth X-Men – just with different characters,” Jackman said. “I left unsure if we’d achieve our goal, which was to make sure people understood my character. This movie will really get to his core.”

The magazine will be available this Friday.

Kevin Feige Talks To Entertainment Weekly About Marvel Cinematic Universe – Phase 2

Marvel-Phase-2

When Marvel Studios began producing its own movies in 2008 with the original Iron Man, the film ended with Samuel L. Jackson’s S.H.I.E.L.D. spymaster Nick Fury telling Robert Downey Jr.: “Mr. Stark, you’ve become part of a bigger universe … “ That was the start of Phase One, in which The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America each linked up and laid the groundwork for what would become 2012’s biggest movie – the billion-and-a-half dollar blockbuster The Avengers.

With Iron Man 3 opening Friday, Marvel launches Phase Two – another ambitious expansion of its superheroes’ cinematic universe. Though much of it remains secret, producer and studio president Kevin Feige talked to Entertainment Weekly to declassify a few new details. Read more HERE.

Advance Screening of Marvel’s Iron Man 3 Will Kick Off The Entertainment Weekly Capetown Film Festival on April 30th

Entertainment Weekly today announced that a complimentary advance screening of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” will kick off the EW CapeTown Film Festival at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles on Tuesday, April 30. The inaugural film festival, co-presented by Entertainment Weekly and American Cinematheque, and sponsored by TNT’s Falling Skies, will host a screening of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” before the film opens in theaters on May 3. Following the screening, there will be a Q&A session with Kevin Feige, producer of Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” and Marvel Studios’ President.

Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of “Tales of Suspense” (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with “The Invincible Iron Man” (#1) in May of 1968.

Entertainment Weekly’s Coverage of the WonderCon Under The Dome On CBS Event

601409_409393069147360_493148413_n

Producers from CBS’s upcoming summer series Under the Dome, based on the novel by Stephen King, took to the WonderCon stage Saturday night to give the crowd a taste of what to expect from the series, starring Mike Vogel, Dean Norris, and Rachelle Lefevre.

under-the-dome-jpeg

On the show, premiering June 24th, a small New England town is inexplicably cut off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome, leaving the town to deal with both the larger implications of their new predicament (dwindling resources, how the heck it got there) and smaller, character-based conflicts (lovers are split, personalities clash). But there’s much more to it all. Check out 5 highlights from the panel, which included Norris, Lefevre, and executive producers Neal Baer (ER, Law & Order: SVU), Jack Bender (Lost, Alias) and Brian K. Vaughan, who also acts as showrunner for the series.

return-of-the-jedi

Entertainment Weekly today announced that they will launch the Entertainment Weekly CapeTown Film Festival (CapeTown ) in conjunction with American Cinematheque and sponsored by TNT’s Falling Skies.

The festival will run from Tuesday, April 30th through Sunday, May 5th at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood, CA. The EW CapeTown Film Festival will offer sci-fi, super-hero, and fantasy fans the opportunity to see their favorites on the big screen, and hear from the visionaries and biggest stars from the genre who have brought them to life.

The EW CapeTown Film Festival will make its super-heroic debut with a six-day event featuring fan favorite films, including some that will be returning to the big screen for the first time in many years, alongside rare live Q&A panels with their filmmakers – and a surprise or two. Panels will be hosted by Entertainment Weekly senior writers Geoff Boucher, Jeff Jensen and others. A highlight of the festival will be a very special “May the Fourth Be with You” screening of Return of the Jedi on Saturday, May 4th. The screening celebrates the film’s 30th anniversary and will be one of the few times since 1997 that moviegoers can experience it on the big screen.

Earlier this year, EW.com launched CapeTown, a new digital destination devoted to the intersection of Hollywood and “Comic-Con culture” — the surging scene that encompasses super-hero, sci-fi, fantasy and horror that stretches across film, television, gaming, comics and novels.

The complete festival line-up and ticket sales information will be released soon.
