‘The Avengers’ Aliens — A List of (Un)usual Suspects


Who Are The Aliens in The Avengers

There’s been much discussion and debate regarding the so-called “aliens” of The Avengers – otherwise known as Loki’s army – which we’ve so far seen only glimpses of via trailers and TV spots. Initial speculation almost exclusively revolved around Marvel’s most famous aliens, the Skrulls and the Kree, but both of those races were nixed by producer Kevin Feige and director Joss Whedon.

In the most recent TV spot, entitled “Head Count,” we got our best, clearest look at the aliens yet.

‘Spartacus: Vengeance’ Season Finale Review


Liam McIntyre Spartacus: Vengeance Wrath of the Gods

Rushing headlong into this finale with a true sense of revolution, Spartacus: Vengeance is set to complete an incredibly strong season by finishing what it had started with ‘Kill Them All’ way back in April of 2010. Moreover, though, Spartacus: Vengeance faces an unlikely challenger in its own storytelling, by having to face the prospect of exceeding the kind of epic grandiosity on display in episodes like ‘Libertus‘ and last week’s ‘Monsters.’

Suffice to say: the season finale ‘Wrath of the Gods’ does not disappoint. The episode is nearly wall-to-wall action that gloriously upends the series, offers closure to several lingering plot threads, and once more redefines the man Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) will become for the pending third season – whatever that may be subtitled.

Pushing Daisies and Dead Like Me creator Bryan Fuller is actively developing two new TV series for NBC, based on well-established properties: Mockingbird Lane, a rebooted take on 1960s classic The Munsters, and Hannibal, a TV show that catches up with Thomas Harris’ iconic serial killer character, pre-Red Dragon (but post-Hannibal Rising).

NBC has prioritized Hannibal for a premiere this fall, pushing the release of Mockingbird Lane back to 2013. The pilot episode for the former has officially secured a helmer in David Slade, to work alongside Fuller and co-executive producer Martha DeLaurentiis (who owns the screen rights to the Hannibal Lecter character).

Hugh Dancy (The Big C) will co-star in Hannibal as FBI agent Will Graham – previously featured in Red Dragon and Manhunter – during his early days at the agency, when he forms ...
