I would actually be more interested in the Agent Carter series as I have a fondness for that period of time story wise.

I would be also, but more because I have a fondness for Haley Atwell.

Re: Joss Whedon's S.H.I.E.L.D to ABC!

A relatively pointless article I stumbled upon: We Will Not Be Punctuating "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD"

As the September 24 start date of ABC's new superhero series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. looms, we are increasingly worried about our poor ring fingers. Meaning, do we have to type all those periods every time we write the title of this show?

We're inclined to say no, to be obstinate in the face of authority. We're looking forward to Joss Whedon's new series as much as any dweeb, and have dutifully, painstakingly used the extreme punctuation used in all the marketing materials. But increasingly, the thought of writing out that whole ungainly title, periods and all, every time this show is mentioned — which presumably will happen a lot in the coming months — is entirely exhausting.
The article suggests that the periods will be dropped (along with the whole "Marvel's Agents of") when people refer to the show, so it would just be SHIELD. I think the motive for making it "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." remains - simply because The Shield is a famous, popular show. However, I do think it'll be Agents of SHIELD (or perhaps even AoS) in short-hand.

Gee, I wonder how their print predecessor The Atlantic Monthly dealt with the title The Man from U.N.C.L.E. back in the '60s. I'm still not sure whether that title was meant to be pronounced "The Man from Uncle" or "The Man from You-En-See-Ell-Ee," since they said the name of the organization both ways in the show, and the title animation did show the letters appearing one at a time.

We should drop the hyphen from Spider-Man's name too. The effort of reaching all the way to the top of the keyboard in order to write the name correctly is overwhelming.

I usually do write Spiderman. That's probably because of Batman and Superman. However, you are right that it's Spider-man (maybe I should get into that habit).

If so,then remember it's Spider-Man, with a capital M. He's sensitive about that.

Hmmm...just that one clip from Agent Carter looks entertaining. Almost as if she's drawing the fight out for her own entertainment.

Do Marvel Studios have the rights to Namor? I'd like to see an Agent Cater movie. With Billy Zane as Namor.

I'd still like to know just when Universal loses Namor.
Is there any way to know when they first acquired the rights, has that been published?
My google-fu chi is not revealing an answer. Seems like if we knew that we might could hazard an educated guess on when they revert back...yes?

It looks like the general rule about the Marvel rights reverting is that the most popular heroes like Spider-Man have a short time before rights revert, while less known characters like Daredevil and Namor have rights that last a very long time. Makes some sense, popular heroes are worth more, so rights don't last as long before reverting.

Graviton when used to his maximum has the raw powerset to be a villain of seriousness with which to be reckoned.

Plus levitation is fairly "cheap" f/x at this point by now I'd think.
