'Agents of SHIELD' Doing A 'Thor' Crossover Episode
On November 19, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will center around the aftermath of events that take place in Thor: The Dark World. The episode, titled “The Well,” will be directed by Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation) and feature appearances by some C-listers from Thor, but no Chris Hemsworth or his insanely sculpted arms.
I’ve included some sassy GIFs of Chloe Bennet a.k.a. Skye for no other reason than she’s my favorite character on the show. Doesn’t she look like she smells pretty? Also, there’s some speculation that she might eventually become Spider-Woman.
Any readers watch this show? I was kind of “meh” on it at first, but I was really digging the last two episodes and can’t wait to see where the story goes from here on out. Also, Skye.
Loki Will Be Bisexual In Upcoming Marvel Title
Regarding the upcoming Marvel comic Loki: Agent of Asgard, writer Al Ewing posted on his blog “Yes, Loki is bi and I’ll be touching on that. He’ll shift between genders occasionally as well.”
It pretty much makes sense since the Loki of Norse mythology was a shapeshifting slut who got it on with anyone and anything.
If you listen closely enough, you can hear the sound of millions of undersexed fangirls, fanboys and slash fiction writers squealing with delight. Al Ewing must be completely aware of Tumblr’s Loki tag. I wonder if he’s aware of these pervy Loki mousepads.

Here’s a heaping buttload of Avengers graffiti spotted in New Jersey by markchevy. That photorealistic Iron Man and Captain America piece is all kinds of legit and holy hot damn the lettering on the Thor one! Skills.
Custom Marvel Micro Munnys By Rocketboy Customs
Ryan “Rocketboy” McClure sent us these pics of some recent commission pieces he did featuring Munny versions of Wolverine, Captain America, Thor, and Punisher. Pretty impressive, especially considering they’re each just 2.5” tall.
