AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel has released a new flashback-filled clip from tonight’s episode of “S.H.I.E.L.D.”

In an interview with CBR, Edward James Olmos discussed how his character, Robert Gonzalez, differs from Director Coulson.

“Gonzales tells them, ‘Listen, the burden that we have to carry because we are S.H.I.E.L.D. — meaning all S.H.I.E.L.D., whether they be Fury, Coulson or myself — has to be transparent,'” said Olmos. “It has to be because the power is too much. You give that kind of power to one person and you are in trouble. That’s what happened with Fury. One guy was running everything. He went up against the World Council.

“At the same time, we’re there to protect the public from these advanced-powered people,” Olmos continued. “All I can tell you is it’s very clearly stated in that scene from last week, that the differences are Coulson leans more toward where Fury comes from. I have to discuss my feelings and ideas with my team. Everybody sitting at that table has the same amount of say-so to what is going to happen. That’s the difference. You never saw a team around Fury and you never saw a team around Coulson. You saw the council that dominated Fury.”

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

ComicBookMovie has a transcription of Andy Serkis’ appearance on the red carpet at the Empire Awards where the actor revealed that he is indeed playing Ulysses Klaw in “Age of Ultron.”

“Well, I think I can absolutely confirm it’s Ulysses Klaw now because I think the news is out,” said Serkis. “I sort of noticed that people [on the red carpets] sort of knew that I was Ulysses Klaw, so I thought ‘It must be out then’… [My part] was really minimal, but I just loved doing it; it’s a great character.”

Collider has posted interviews with Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson where the Maximoff twins discuss their characters’ accents and point of origin.

“Can I talk about it? It’s something we got to create because it’s a make believe place,” said Olsen. “So it’s something that Aaron [Taylor-Johnson] and I with the dialect coach got to create together.” When asked about the name of the made up place, Olsen responded, “That I can’t talk about. But I got to make it up, so yeah.”

“Me and Lizzy [Elizabeth Olsen] have been doing dialect coaching together and trying to get that to sound similar considering that we’re playing twins, brother and sister,” said Taylor-Johnson. “But you know, her being American and me British. But yeah, it’s fun, when I spoke to Joss [Whedon] about it a lot time ago and he approached me for the role, it was one of the things I kind of wanted to keep, you know…one of them was I wanted to have white silver kind of hair to look like the character and the other one was that I could kind of embrace the roots of where he’s from, you know, being Eastern European, it would be great to do some kind of accent to enhance that kind of feeling so I’m glad that we’re doing it. But like I said [laughs], they might screen it and they might go ‘what are they saying?’ so you never really know. So I’d like to think they’ll keep it that. But with the Marvel guys, they understand, when it comes down to the characters, you know, they’re a studio that really cares about their characters, and they have real creative input, and are totally for that, but at the end you always want what’s best, so we’ll see. Hopefully we’ll continue on that route.”
