With the premiere date of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. getting closer and closer, ABC took the liberty of releasing a huge gallery of photos, plus three new trailers. See those below. Also, the first trailer for the third season of Sherlock has hit the web. We also have a few neat posters for Ender’s Game and Thor: The Dark World. All that and more below.

  • Chris Evans Plans Directorial Debut: Captain America star Chris Evans is gearing up to direct his very first feature. Deadline reports that he’ll helm, star in and produce 1:30 Train, a film in the vein of Richard Linklater‘s Before Sunrise, which focuses “on two strangers who meet in Manhattan and spend one night together as the conflicts in their own lives become the basis for their exploration of each other and themselves.” Evans will direct the film this fall, before he begins shooting The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
  • Zhang Yimou To Direct Quasimodo: Hero director Zhang Yimou is in talks to direct Josh Brolin in Quasimodo. The Warner Bros. movie is based on the 1831 novel that tells the story of a deformed hunchback who falls in love with dancing gypsy named Esmeralda. The story has been adapted many times before, but we’re excited to see what Yimou will bring to the table, that is if he officially gets the directing gig. Source: ComingSoon
