Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Teaser Television Poster

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Teaser Television Poster

Tonight’s the world premiere of Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Season 2 and The Blot can’t wait! To promote the new season, ABC has released this kinda “meh” one sheet teaser TV poster. It doesn’t actually say anything, but you can decipher some hidden messages by how the cast in lined up. For instance, Chloe Bennet’s Skye is now a full-fledged agent of SHIELD, while Brett Dalton’s Grant Ward has his back turned to the rest of the cast, which shows he is still at odds with the rest of his team. What more can we learn from this last official image before tonight’s premiere?

Agents of SHIELD premieres tonight, Tuesday, September 23rd, at 9/8c on ABC.

“Bad Ass” Screen Print by Kronk

“Bad Ass” Screen Print by Kronk

For Pobber's very first print release they’ve teamed up with popular South African artist Kronk to produce a beautiful print featuring his epic Bad Ass vinyl figure! Last weekend they unleashed this stripped down, 4 color screen print designed to show off the “badass-ness” of Kronk’s giant mecha ape known as Bad Ass. For this design, Kronk “looked at classic King Kong and sci-fi posters for inspiration, especially those that show destruction.” The result is a striking image that will make an excellent addition to any art collector’s walls!

“Bad Ass” by Kronk is an 18”x24” screen print on 140lb French Fine Art Paper. Limited to just 50 pieces, this print is currently available for purchase at the Pobber online store for $70 each.

“Floral Pleasure ‘Bot” Kidrobot Mascot Vinyl Figure by Tristan Eaton

“Floral Pleasure ‘Bot” Kidrobot Mascot 7 Inch Vinyl Figure by Tristan Eaton

Stripped down and streamlined, the Floral Pleasure ‘Bot is a real beauty. For this release, Kidrobot asked Tristan Eaton, the foundational Kidrobot designer, to embellish the Kidrobot mascot platform with his golden illustrative touch. Featuring an elegant, intricate and daring design, the Floral Pleasure Kidrobot is a homage to beautiful bodies. The Blot’s loving this design, but I am a little bummed to see another release featuring the super simplistic DIY version of the ‘Bot platform.

You know, The Blot was just thinking to myself it’s been way too long since we’ve seen a new colorway of Funko’s hugely popular Deadpool Pop! Marvel vinyl figure. And then BAM!, Funko announced its 1,000th Deadpool colorway! Ok I’m being a little facetious, but there have been a ton of Deadpool variants. Could there have been better timing for this release than the same week that FOX announced a premiere date for its upcoming live action Deadpool movie!?! This new X-Men Edition Deadpool Pop! sports a blue and gold uniform based on the costumes of the original X-Men team. Evidently Deadpool actually wore this costume in the Cable and Deadpool comic book series after losing a bet to Wolverine and Beast.

Arrow Season 3 Television Poster

Arrow Season 3 Television Poster

For some odd reason we’re still weeks away from the season premiere of Arrow on The CW. To help us kill the time until Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen/Green Arrow returns to the TVs everywhere, The CW has released this Arrow Season 3 television poster. I actually like this group shot of Team Arrow, which includes Colton Haynes as Roy Harper/Arsenal, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Amell, Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance and David Ramsey as John Diggle. My only gripe is how freaking fake this poster looks! They couldn’t they have just taken a cast photo? Ugh… Regardless, bring on the 2014/2015 television season! With 5 different DC Comics live action shows airing this fall, The Blot is in hog heaven! I just hope they live up to they hype.

Arrow Season 3 premieres on The CW Wednesday, October 8th, at 8/7c.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Cast Photo

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Cast Photo

The Blot’s a little late on this news, but Marvel has released the official cast photo of ABC’s Agents of SHIELD Season 2, and surprisingly it included some big news! These types of photo releases typically never share insight into the upcoming season, but it does confirm a few choice tidbits. First is the news that B.J. Britt (as Agent Antoine Triplett) has been promoted to a series regular. Britt was fantastic in the second half of Season 1, and The Blot is very excited he’ll play an even more prominent role this season. We also learned that Nick Blood (as Lance Hunter) and Henry Simmons (as Alphonso “Mac” Mackenzie) will be joining the show as series regulars as well. From what I’ve read Hunter is a secret agent from Britian’s equivalent to SHIELD, while Mac is a mechanic who assists the newly reformed SHIELD.

The Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Season 2 Cast Photo also includes Chloe Bennet as Agent Skye, Iain De Caestecker as Agent Leo Fitz, Ming-Na Wen as Agent Melinda May, Clark Gregg as Director Phil Coulson, Elizabeth Henstridge as Agent Jemma Simmons and Brett Dalton as Grant Ward. While getting off to an incredibly slow start, Agents of SHIELD got really good towards the end of the season. The driving force behind that was when the show intersected with the storyline from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Here’s hoping they can build upon that momentum in Season 2.

Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Season 2 premieres on ABC Tuesday, September 23rd, at 9/8c.
