We're going to have a Marvelous Good Time, Patrollers! The Toddster happened to stumble upon this purely by accident.

Throw the Shield and we'll see what we get.

New on DVD

Captain America (The Winter Soldier)- There are times that your past can catch up with you when you don't want it to. Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) aka Captain America has been back in the World for a little while now. He helped the Avengers save New York City from an alien invasion and has been assisting Shield on missions of national importance. Now Colonel Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) wants Cap to work full time for Shield. Steve becomes aware of everything the spy agence is up to and he's not sure he want to be a part of it. Taking time out to think, Fury comes to Cap after terrorists try and kill him. After Fury tries to tell Steve what is going on, he's shot by an assassin known only as the Winter Soldier. Something about the Winter Soldier is familiar. Shield wants to know what Steve knows but he's not sure he can trust them. Now he has to go on the run with the Black Widow (Scarlet Johannsen) and The Falcon (Anthony Mackie). Can Cap figure out who the Winter Soldier is and see what Shield is really up to? Evans is hard at work on "Avengers:Age of Ultron" set for release in theaters next Summer with another sequel already in the works.

Marvel's Agents of Shield (Season 1)- Believe it or not, forces are at work in this World you don't know about but these are the guys you want in your corner fighting against them. Shield Special Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was a longtime Shield agent and thought to have been killed in action before the Alien Invasion of New York by the Chitauri. His death was used as a motivator by Nick Fury to bring the Avengers together as a team to get the job done. What they don't know is Fury used everything as his disposal to find a way to save Coulson and he did just that. Now Coulson has been given his own team to fight threats that aren't of this world and to defend those that can't defend themselves. In the pilot episode. Coulson assembles his team to investigate the debut of a new super hero and to find out his true intentions. Will Coulson be able to find out with the team in time? Gregg returns as Agent Coulson for Season 2 when it premieres on ABC Tuesday September 23 at 9PM.

Also on DVD

The Incredible Hulk/The Trial of the Incredible Hulk- Everyone likes double feaures. How about one that stars a certain green goliath? Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno team up again. Bixby played Dr. David Banner and Ferrigno hulked out taking care of the bad guys from 1977-1982. They come together in 2 great movies. In "The Incredible Hulk Returns," Banner has been working on a Gamma transponder that might be able to cure him once and for all. An old friend from the past needs his help and may interfere with what Banner wants to do. Banner meets the Mighty Thor (Eric Kramer) and hulks out leading them to an epic clash. Can they find a way to team long enough to stop a gang of terrorists that want to steal the transponder? In "The Trial of the Incredible Hulk," Banner has been on the run for a long time and now just wants to be left alone. He's in the wrong place at the wrong time trying to defend a lady from a holdup and hulks out on them. During the struggle, an elderly man is killed and Banner is jailed for it. Attorney Matt Murdock (Rex Smith) come to his defense. In his investigation, an old enemy of Murdock's named Wilson Fisk (John Ryhs-Davies) AKA the Kingpin wants to see Banner dead. Murdock also has a secret life as a crimefighter known as Daredevil who has to find a way to save Banner. Can he do it and how long can Banner keep from turning into the Hulk? This double set is available in stores now.

Elektra- Matt Murdock (Ben Affleck) has always had a way with the ladies and when he met Elektra Natchios (Jennifer Garner), his life would never be the same. Their romance would be cut short after an assassin killed Elektra. Now Elektra's old sensei Stick (Terence Stamp) comes along and brings Elektra back to life. Turning her back on Matt, Elektra takes up a new life as a killer for hire. Her latest job is to go after Mark Miller (Goran Visnic) and his daughter Abby (Kirsten Prout). Elektra has been having doubts about her lifestyle and Abby reminds her a lot of herself. Elektra decides to help them and in doing so attracts the attention of an ancient order known as the Hand. They send an eccentric team of killers after them led by Kirigi (Will Yun-Lee). Can Elektra's skills match them and stop them? Visnic can currently be seen with Halle Berry on "Extant" airing on CBS Wednesdays at 10PM.
