Review: The villains of Iron Man 3 and Star Trek 2

Time for a couple of quick movie reviews. Two big May sequels: Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness (aka JJ Abrams' Star Trek II). Both films are continuations of successful franchises, both heavily advertised their villains, both use insane amounts of CGI, and both have a fairly controversial twist, which means that most of everything I want to say is incredibly spoiler heavy. On the spoiler-free side, both films strike a fine balance action and humor, and well neither is perfect (and both make questionable decisions) both are excellent summer movies. Okay, spoilers now.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Official Trailer

ABC has released a full-length trailer for this fall's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It covers the "isn't Coulson dead?" issue, and shows off the various cast members, seemingly including Angel's J. August Richards. Is he Luke Cage? Probably not. Rage? Maybe. A one episode guest star? Likely. More importantly, does Lola fly? So many options. So long to wait. In related news, Joss Whedon is now on Twitter.
