Hey fans! Welcome back to another weekly recap of last week’s comic book news on The Seventh Day!
This week we geek out about the newly released footage from Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ That’s right, folks…#COULSONLIVES! Plus, will Robert Downey Jr. make a guest appearance down the line now that he’s freed up from doing more Iron Man movies? AH! GOTCHA! Well, maybe not. His contract with Marvel is officially over and there’s really no telling what the future holds for the ‘Iron Man’ franchise. We’ve got an idea or two…
We also talk about the announcement for Disney’s upcoming CGI adaptation of ‘Big Hero 6’, another obscure Marvel property that will be making its way to the big screen in 2014.
Also, a DC UNIVERSE VS MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE 6-issue mini-series is heading to stores in August and what’s not to love (or hate) about such an event?? We have a feeling the internet will share its thoughts with us.
And finally, Valiant Comics is once again gearing up for summertime with the announcement for ‘Eternal Warrior’, the upcoming series being written by Greg Pak!
Full-Length Trailer Released For ‘Under The Dome’ TV Series

The first episode of the series is written by Brian K. Vaughan and will be directed by Niels Oplev Arden (Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), telling the story a small American town that suddenly finds itself surrounded by a strange and other-worldly invisible dome that effectively isolates the town from the rest of the world.
