Marvel Bits!

While there was a ton of big news this week with the addition of two cast members to A.K.A JESSICA JONES, the reveal of who Dottie truly is on AGENT CARTER, and the launch of Marvel Collector Corps, there were also a ton of small bits of news that made their way online.

Let's start off with JESSICA JONES, first. Yesterday, when I originally meant to publish this post, there was a new Jessica Jones audition tape I'd located online. It featured Mary Faber, who has voiced Crystal and Medusa on Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. She has also appeared on Parks and Recreation and Nurse Jackie. The video was more than likely pulled because someone else more than likely stumbled upon the video as well. (Updated: Ah! Found the video again!) Here's what I saw in the audition video (you'll have to highlight to read the text as I don't want to spoil anyone): Harmony was mentioned, Paula (a secretary) is the role that Faber appeared to be auditioning for, they referred to Jessica as Julie and Julia (as other audition videos that had found their way online before also had), and there were mentions of Ms/Mrs. Jansen and a Gail/Gayle Harper. It's worth noting that they are using code names, so the names listed above are not necessarily the names of the characters that'll appear on the show.

Moving onto AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D: We know that the eleventh episode of season two is called "Aftershocks", and that it'll more than likely deal with Skye/Daisy learning who she is now and what she's capable of - much like the recent promo has suggested. We now also know that the twelfth episode of season two is titled "Who You Really Are". (Source.) I've gotta admit, I'm incredibly excited with where the second half of season two seems to be going. I actually liked season one, and I loved the first half of season two, so even though I'll be sad to see AGENT CARTER end, I'm eagerly awaiting the return of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. And since S.H.I.E.L.D. should be concluding its second season around the time AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON is released, I can't wait to see how they tie the two together.

It has been confirmed that neither AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON nor ANT-MAN will be getting Superbowl Commercials. (Sources: 1 & 2.)

There's a rumor that Yellowjacket isn't the only villain in ANT-MAN. You can read more about that over here. I haven't posted this article mainly because Devin of BadAssDigist (who I trust more than the source that has started this rumor) has stated that Yellowjack is the ONLY villain in ANT-MAN.
There is an awesome AVENGERS Lego Helicarrier set coming out soon, and even though it is quite expensive, it's something most fans will want to add to their collection.
You can read more about that by going over here.

While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter to promote "Throwaways", Jeremy Renner talked about how he hasn't really seen what Ultron and Vision look like.
"It will be a surprise to everybody in the movie — Ultron as well as Vision, because those characters were so much generated stuff." (Source.)

Thanks to the folks over at Comic Book Movie, we now have a textless HQ version of the AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Empire Magazine cover!

And finally, some potentially GREAT news for fans of AGENT CARTER: Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters have signed a two-year pod deal with ABC Studios. This does NOT guarantee a second season of AGENT CARTER, and it is highly unlikely we'll hear anything before May regarding its renewal, but it's a hopeful sign that ABC is proud of the show.
