Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

Without further wrecking spoilers any worse than I've already done for myself just being here...how was Carlo Rota's performance? He's been a favourite of mine since his days on Little Mosque on the Prairie.

Really? The guy is ninety-one and we all know what a Stan Lee cameo looks like by now. Did anybody really think that this was going to be any different?
You should listen to the Stan Lee podcasts on Nerdist. He actually still works full time and goes into the office every day to design new comics and TV series.

Was Stan Lee's character some kind of Hugh Hefner type with a model on each arm or were they train staff helping him around?
The latter, it seemed to me.

Apparently, that day, Stan Lee was not making statements to the Hollywood Reporter that he intended to be taken literally, and in the game of Internet telephone, the whole context there wasn't getting passed along.
Bingo. That actually ties into one of my current pet peeves: the way the internet blurs the distinction between rumors, hype, speculation, and actual "news." One of the unfortunate side-effects of which is that fans are disappointed when they don't get what they'd thought they'd been promised . . . .

What makes them seem to be train staff?

My impression had been that they were in uniforms, but I just checked the scene on the DVR and it seems I was wrong. So I don't know who they were supposed to be.

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

I think maybe an attempt at some subtle humor. Simmons is loudly berating Coulson for his prostitutes, then an old man comes up with a couple of young ladies on his arm and tells Coulson that he needs to get his act together....

Re: Agents of SHIELD. Season 1 Discussion Thread

It would be funny if they turned it into a running gag. Maybe have Stan turn up once per season, like the SHIELDies just keep randomly running into this one guy.

Come to think of it, wasn't one of Stan's Iron Man cameos a Hefner type with a girl on each arm? Maybe it's the same guy.

Yep, Tony even refers to him as "Hef".

Nah, someone said Heisenberg was playing Luthor but they had just misheard.

I saw Stan in person less than two weeks ago, and he was getting around on his own just fine.

Well sure you can, why not?

You can hold out a lot of hope. By the looks of it, Stan just wanders into each scene he cameos and they incorporate whatever into it.

^ Yeah, I'm hoping for an episode a season. Plus, I'm looking forward to the Daredevil and Agent Carter cameos.

Well, LOST had Boone's death, which had a whole "dying" episode, so it's not unprecedented to do it this way.

Looks like to save Skye, Coulson is planning another trip to "TAHITI".
