Maria Hill Hates Her Boss In Alternate 'Avengers' Opening

It's still better than working retail. New York City was just leveled by aliens. Last thing anybody needs is a Monday morning quarterback, Maria.

New 'Avengers' Trailer Shows Us How All These Avengers Ended Up Together

Handsome men make the best superheroes. So that's how the super friends all met! We can thank a bald black dude in an eyepatch. In case you were wondering exactly how the characters from The Avengers were all assembled so as not to look like a superhero version of the Miami Heat, here's your answer. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) assembled a team of elite superheroes (Is there any other kind?) to tackle the type of costumed ne'er-do-wells that could only populate a Marvel universe. While I'm sure the origin story of The Avengers is somewhat carefully crafted, it's pretty hard to get past seeing Captain America next to Thor next to Iron Man. It looks like a parody of itself, but that probably won't stop it from being fun.


Jackson Reveals ‘Nick Fury’ Sidekick Info: It’s A Lady!

Samuel L. Jackson, who appeared as Nick Fury in 'Iron Man' (post credits) and 'Iron Man 2', is finally getting his own shot at the spotlight in 'The Avengers', but he'll be sharing it with a hot brunette sidekick. Samuel L. Jackson, who appeared as Nick Fury after the credits of Iron Man, and somewhere in the murky, sequel-y depths of Iron Man 2, is finally getting his own shot at the spotlight in The Avengers, but he'll be sharing it with a hot brunette sidekick. Jackson told Jimmy Fallon last night, “I gotta screen test like five actresses on Friday. They have this new character that’s my sidekick or something, that’s with me all the time.” So far we know that several actresses, from Scott Pilgrim's Mary Elizabeth Winstead to  Cobie Smulders from "How I Met Your Mother" are being considered for the role, along with several other equally beautiful but less noteworthy brunettes. The Avengers begins filming in April, with an intended release date of May 4, 2012. (The Playlist)


The Alternate Ending To Last Week's 'Breaking Bad'

I like how this purports to be the director's cut. This entire series is one big "director's cut." Here be spoilers, so if you aren't current on Breaking Bad (and what the hell is wrong with you if you're not?), this gives away a pretty important (though we don't know how) plot point. Setting these clips up is always a recipe for disaster. If you have seen the episode, you know the context. And if you haven't, don't watch the damn clip. The beauty of this gag (and the scene in general) is the surprise, which I don't want to ruin, so I'm just going to keep typing things until I hit my word count and can get paid for this article. Jamboree. Hilltop. Wainscoting. Haberdasher. Filament. Filibuster. Contemplate. Willful. Gerrymander. Ok. That was a hundred words with "Gerrymander," so everything you're reading here is a super-secret Screen Junkies Easter egg bonus. We spoil you.


'Star Trek Into Darkness' Looks Like 'The Avengers' In This New Trailer

With more lens flare, natch. Last time around, the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer focused on whoever the Hell Benedict Cumberbatch is playing and how he hates the sh*t out of the Enterprise crew. This time around we're greeted by the smokey drag of Bruce Greenwood's voice telling Kirk that he's kind of a dick, and being a dick in outer space gets everyone killed. Then we shots of a huge funeral. Smooth move, Kirk. In addition to this lecture, we see some new footage of extreme outer space base-jumping, some extreme on Earth base-jumping, space ships falling out of the air, and Benedict Cumberbatch standing in a glass cell like Loki. Still no footage of the Hulk yet.


'Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.' Wacky Neighbor Nick Fury Swung By For A Visit

He wasn't there to borrow sugar. Agent's of S.H.I.E.L.D. is continuing to find its footing with last night's good but not great episode. The highlight of which was Samuel L. Jackson popping by to remind everyone he likes to shout. Though this episode was an improvement upon the pilot, it didn't really offer much more. The characters are still unlikable and the production value still screams cheap right down to Nick Fury's fake-ass goatee. If Marvel can make New York looked like it's been invaded by aliens through an intergalactic portal, don't you think they should be able to handle facial hair? Anyway, fun cameo.


Honest Trailers: 'The Avengers'

A-venge? More like RE-venge! Right guys? Huh? Yeahhhhh. You think just because a movie rakes in $500 million at the box office that it's beyond criticism? Then you're wrong. DEAD wrong. (Sorry, that was a little too menacing.) But you're still wrong. As Screen Junkies has done with The Dark Knight, Avatar, and Transformers, it does again with the superhero mashup film The Avengers. And if I may so myself, we really stick it to that Joss Whedon guy. So much so that I bet he sees this, then falls off his giant pile of money, with only a slightly smaller pile of money to cushion his fall. Oh, the humanity. Hope you enjoy us making fun of The Avengers!
