Titled ‘An Inside Look at the World of S.H.I.E.L.D.,’ Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have provided us a briefing which details just how the events of New York have affected S.H.I.E.L.D., its agents and the world. The full document is as follows:
When Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens, about two years have passed since the alien invasion of New York was repulsed by Nick Fury’s special team, The Avengers. The world is now well aware that extra-terrestrials, godlike beings and monsters may be lurking in the cosmos and that Super Heroes walk among us. The demand for protection of the world’s citizenry has reached a zenith. In response to the world’s justifiable fears, S.H.I.E.L.D. has expanded its presence to enhance the security of Earth.

Our source — who would identify himself only as D — managed to pass along some leaked screenshots of pics of some of the upcoming fashion line inspired by the film and its iconic villain (Angelina Jolie) as well as the sleeping beauty herself, Aurora (Elle Fanning).

Based on a true story, Disney’s Million Dollar Arm follows JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm), a once-successful sports agent who now finds himself edged out by bigger, slicker competitors. He and his partner Aash (Aasif Mandvi) will have to close their business down for good if JB doesn’t come up with something fast. Late one night, while watching cricket being played in India on TV, JB comes up with an idea so radical it just might work. Why not go to there and find the next baseball pitching sensation? Setting off for Mumbai with nothing but a gifted but cantankerous scout (Alan Arkin) in tow, JB stages a televised, nationwide competition called “Million Dollar Arm” where 40,000 hopefuls compete before two 18-year-old finalists, Rinku and Dinesh (Suraj Sharma, Madhur Mittal), emerge as winners. JB brings them back to the United States to train with legendary pitching coach Tom House (Bill Paxton). The goal: get the boys signed to a major league team.

While Disney failed to wow attendees at the industry expo Cinemacon with news regarding its upcoming slate, one actor has taken matters into his own hands. Comedian TJ Miller (who will next be seen in HBO’s new series ‘Silicon Valley’ from Mike Judge) recently confirmed via Twitter that he will be featured in Disney’s Big Hero 6 as Fred /aka/ Fredzilla, whose powers include turning himself into a Godzilla-like monster and projecting a dinosaur avatar ‘that can only be seen from certain perspectives.’ In the comics, Fred also has claimed to spent part of his childhood living at a secret S.H.I.E.L.D. base in Japan.
