Posted On Today at 01:57:13 pm EDT by Blargh [Reply] [Quote] [New] Quote:Hi all. Long time no post. Anyhow, I've caught the first two episodes of Agents of SHIELD. So far, so good, but I'm still crossing my fingers and hoping for some of my favorite supers to show up. So it occurred to me this week that the Grant Ward character uses named, possibly AI flying robots similar to Armada. It's probably a stretch and the name is obviously different, but does anyone know the rules on minor Spiderman characters appearing in TV or movies? They obviously couldn't use the Green Goblin, but what about guys like Cardiac? ...I don't know why they couldn't use Green Goblin and not Cardiac. There's nothing that's been said about the Sony media writes on Spider-Man that would include some Spidey villains but not others (with the notable Kingpin exception, which was part of Daredevil rights before Fox let them revert back to Marvel). It is known that Marvel, post Disney merger, renegotiated the animated television rights for the few franchises that are still held by other movie studios, that being the F4, X-Men, and Spider-Man. This probably extends to video games as well. It is generally accepted that the rights held by outside studios (Sony with Spider-Man, Fox with F4 and X) aren't so much movie rights but live action rights. These re-negotiated animated rights probably led to the early demise of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Spectacular Spider-Man, and Wolverine and the X-Men. So no, we won't be getting any Spider-Man or Spider-Man related stuff in SHIELD. And there's really no need to. There's so much to draw from and most of Spider-Man's villains probably wouldn't work too well in a universe without him. And the few that would probably have a Avengers/larger MU character that is close enough to work. We'll still have Ultimate Spider-Man (unfortunately), and Spidey might pop up in the related shows "Avengers Assemble" and "Hulk and the Agents of SMASH" but that's about it.

- While promoting WWE’s Risa Above Cancer campaign, John Cena spoke to Showbiz Tonight about returning from his injury sooner then expected: “October 27th, I know I’m ready, I’ve had a wonderful surgeon, I’ve had a wonderful physical therapy crew. I’ve been really diligent and really on track to get back early. I feel great, the doctors are happy with everything… I’m really, really excited, I thought I was going to be off until past Christmas but now I can get back in the WWE Universe and do what I love.” Cena was asked if he was returning too soon. He replied: “It’s not just my opinion here, it’s the opinion of the WWE medical staff, my surgeon, my physical therapist. I had to clear it with all those people. I’m cleared, I’m ready to go, and on October 27th I’ll be as ready and as strong as I’ve ever been.” Cena also commented on Hulk Hogan riding a pole in a thong in a new commercial for his Hostamania web hosting company: “So the commercial starts, and I’m seeing Hulk Hogan on the wrecking ball and he’s using his legendary and iconic do-rag, sunglasses, fu manchu, boa. He kicks the guy in the face, I’m like, ‘you know what, that’s a good…’ No, no, and then it all goes wrong. That’s a little too much, they should have stopped at the boot to the face, brother.” Possible Title Plans for John Cena, Hot New Aksana & Nikki Photos, More

It made some sense when Tigers manager Jim Leyland told the media he might use Max Scherzer in the fourth game of the ALDS. Scherzer is an easy favorite to win the American League's Cy Young Award this year, and leaving him on the bench for lesser pitchers in an elimination game just screams of leaving the best arrows quivered. Of course, there was a nagging doubt that couldn't be shaken: Hey, can Scherzer even do this relief thing? It's not like he's done it much before. Grant Brisbee:: Max Scherzer's dance with death, pitch by pitch Tuesday Scherzer entered in the seventh, escaped a bases-loaded, no-out scare in the eighth, and the rest, as they say, is history. The Tigers won, 8-6, extending the ALDS to a deciding Game 5 in Oakland Thursday night, and Motown has a new sports epic to recite. He's going to get the credit here, because after throwing the kind of eighth inning he threw, you can do nothing else. Epic poems and myths aren't about those who make it look easy, they're about the ones who overcome those who have been given every advantage. A more overpowering appearance by Scherzer would have carried a lot less drama. This was not the kind of six-up, six-down two-inning total domination performance that would have made fans sit comfortably in their seats and enjoy themselves. If it were, we'd laud it briefly today, talk about Jhonny Peralta's home run and Austin Jackson's last laugh, and Scherzer would be worth nary a mention beyond the recap. Instead, it was a man balancing on the edge, gripping his team's fate in his hands as he wobbled on the precipice, allowing a walk and a double and being asked to take one step closer to the end with an intentional walk and a 3-1 count before gaining purchase and taking step after deliberate step forward with a strikeout, then another, then a fly ball to center for the third out. Hulk Hogan couldn't lift his little Hulkamaniacs and teach them about never giving up if he wasn't first thoroughly beaten, laying broken on the mat with the ref's hand coming down for that final, third slap. Scherzer couldn't become legend without first being a swing away from being the goat. But he wasn't beaten, his team wasn't beaten, the fans weren't beaten, the city wasn't beaten. We looked over the edge, and what we saw didn't look pretty. Max Scherzer may never need to buy a drink in this town again. The legend is made -- bases loaded, no outs, no runs. But, for everyone's sake, let's never stare that emptiness in the face again. We've had the incredible drama. A pleasant denouement and trip to the ALCS is all that remains.

If you think mullets are only for hillbillies with pickup trucks, think again. Yes Hulk Hogan single-handedly made the skullet famous (skullet = a baldie in the front, long hair in the back) and almost every hockey star has a mullet, but they're not the only ones who love the 20 year-old hairstyle either. From Rihanna to Kristen Stewart, some of your favorite Hollywood A-list stars are bringing the mullet to the red carpet. The haircut even made the cover of Vogue last month, paired with an evening gown. We're serious. Click through for a list of 12 famous celebs who you'd never expect to have first-class mullets. Halloween costume inspiration, anyone? [Photos: Splash News]

It’s hard to believe Spain were once international football’s great choke artists. Heading into the upcoming round of Brazil 2014 qualifiers (they’ll host Belarus and Georgia and need only three points to seal automatic progression to the competition proper). La Roja are World Cup holders and have also won each of the last two European championships. A core group of players—Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta, Cesc Fabregas and Iker Casillas—has delivered unprecedented success to Spain over the past half-decade and more, and as many of them get along in years it begs a fascinating question. Are there nations that could replicate Spain’s success on the international stage? In other words, are there national squads that could conceivably win three major competitions over the next five years? Following is a look at five possibilities, in alphabetical order. Argentina Argentina booked their place in an 11th successive World Cup last month and will conclude their qualification campaign with upcoming matches at home to Peru and away to Uruguay. Ladbrokes has Argentina second-favourites to win the 2014 World Cup at 5.50/1. Starring in 2014 & 2018: Sergio Romero, Federico Fernandez, Ezequiel Garay, Angel Di Maria, Ever Banega, Erik Lamela, Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi Starting XI, 2014: Romero, Zabaleta, Fernandez, Garay, Rojo, Gago, Biglia, Di Maria, Aguero, Messi, Palacio Starting XI, 2018: Romero; Zabaleta, Fernandez, Garay, Rojo; Banega, Biglia, Di Maria, Lamela, Messi, Palacio Much of Argentina’s current core of players is 26 years old or younger, including talisman Lionel Messi. It’s hard to believe the best player in the world will retire without having won at least a single World Cup, and over the next five years he’ll have the opportunity to win a pair. Belgium Belgium are assured of at least a playoff spot and can book an automatic place in the 2014 tournament by taking a single point from upcoming qualifiers away to Croatia and at home to Wales. Ladbrokes has Belgium seventh-favourites to win the 2014 World Cup at 17/1. Starring in 2014 & 2018: Thibaut Courtois, Vincent Kompany, Thomas Vermaelen, Jan Vertonghen, Kevin De Bruyne, Marouane Fellaini, Mousa Dembele, Eden Hazard, Christian Benteke, Kevin Mirallas, Romelu Lukaku Starting XI, 2014: Courtois, Alderweireld, Lombaerts, Kompany, Pocognoli, Fellaini, Dembele, Chadli, Mirallas, Lukaku, Hazard Starting XI, 2018: Courtois, Alderweireld, Vermaelen, Kompany, Pocognoli, Fellaini, Dembele, Chadli, De Bruyne, Lukaku, Hazard Rarely is a generation of up-and-coming internationals so large, so deep at every position and so capable of producing magic. Belgium manager Marc Wilmots is spoiled for choice when it comes to his selections, but so long as the Red Devils have the likes of Courtois, Kompany, Hazard and Lukaku at the core they’ll contend in every competition they enter. Brazil As World Cup hosts Brazil will continue their streak of competing in every World Cup since the first tournament proper in 1930. They recently beat Spain in the final of the Confederations Cup and will benefit from partisan support next June and July. Ladbrokes has Brazil favourites to win the 2014 World Cup at 4.33/1. Starring in 2014 & 2018: David Luiz, Thiago Silva, Marcelo, Lucas Moura, Oscar, Bernard, Luiz Gustavo, Paulinho, Hulk, Neymar Starting XI, 2014: Julio Cesar, Dani Alves, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Marcelo, Paulinho, Luiz Gustavo, Hulk, Oscar, Neymar, Fred Starting XI, 2018: Jefferson, Rafael, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Marcelo, Luiz Gustavo, Paulinho, Oscar, Lucas Moura, Neymar, Bernard Brazil have an all-world player in Neymar just entering his prime and a solid central defense supported by elite, holding midfielders who also know when to join the attack. Although mostly a conglomeration of positional specialists, there are enough special pieces in this Brazil side to keep it in contention thru the 2018 W

Name: Philip Oakley, his wife Olivia, and their two cocker spaniels, Joe and JarvisLocation: St Leonards; Sussex, UKSize: 6,000 square feetYears lived in: Owned 4.5 years, lived in 3 years Philip and Olivia’s home is a great hulk of a building painted top to toe in gunmetal grey. From the outside, it looks almost hermetically sealed. The front door blends in to the wall, and most the windows are shuttered. From a second storey window, what looks like the statue of an irate wizard glares down at me. It is dark and forbidding. Inside, I stagger around in the gloom until one by one the lights flicker on and I find myself in a fantasy fairground land of merry-go-round horses, gurning heads and eye-poppingly bright illuminations. Welcome to Philip and Olivia’s wonderfully weird world! READ MORE »

Valiant Entertainment has announced it’s going back to the year 4001 A.D.  The future timeline from the original 90s run, home of characters like Rai and the Future Force, will be re-introduced in Eternal Warrior #5 this January. The new story arc, “Eternal Emperor” will split time between the modern day and the future with a very different, grizzled Eternal Warrior protecting a small contingent of humanity on a ravaged continent. Writer Greg Pak (Batman/Superman, Planet Hulk) and artist Diego Bernard (Shadowman, Witchblade) are on hand to bring us this new chapter in the Valiant Universe. The issue will ship with a cover by Clayton Crain and variants by Diego Bernard, David Mack and Dave Bullock. “This is a radically different future with huge emotional ramifications for our characters,” said Greg Pak. “We’re going whole hog here – taking advantage of this crazy premise to explore a massive, mind-bending story we could never do in the present.” “The future timeline was always an essential element of the original Valiant Universe,” added Valiant Executive Editor Warren Simons. “We’re continuing in that grand tradition with ‘Eternal Emperor,’ an action-packed milestone that shows the Eternal Warrior in a new light, one that’s vivid and heartbreaking, and taps into the best that the character has to offer.” To find out more about 4001 and beyond, join Greg Pak and an all-star panel of Valiant insiders at New York Comic-Con for the Valiant Comics: Must Read Valiant panel presentation on Saturday, October 12th at 4 pm. Greg Pak Takes The Eternal Warrior Back To 4001 A.D.

Let’s face the hard facts together: For the next little while, headlines prominently featuring the proper nouns “Miley” and “Cyrus” aren’t going to let up. So we should all consider ourselves lucky that this particular one doesn’t have anything to do with a controversy, a foam finger or a letter from Sinead O’Connor. No: This bit of tangentially twerk-related text is all about Hulk Hogan. RelatedIf you weren’t crazy about Miley Cyrus twerking at the VMAs, you probably won’t like her naked in the video for ‘Wrecking Ball’Miley Cyrus copycats lead university to remove wrecking ball statue from campusSinead O’Connor furious at Miley Cyrus’ response to open letter The former WWF wrestler and erstwhile sex tape star has offered up his take on Cyrus’ music video for Wrecking Ball as an advertisement for his web-hosting service Hostmania. And it’s kind of a confusing segment! A Hulk Hogan-styled man sits at a desk, eating crayons, until another man descends from the ceiling and begins eating his own crayons. Not keen to suffer these upside-down crayon-eating shenanigans, Hogan swings in — on a wrecking ball, natch — and kicks the offending man to the ground. And then, just for good measure, a boa-clad Hogan swings around in slow motion, slapping his thonged bottom in homage to Cyrus’ own, decidedly more au naturel music video. It must be watched to be fully understood, and so, we’ve featured it below. Enjoy:
