Cloak and Dagger Logo Marvel Freeform

Let’s be real: Marvel Entertainment has produced some pretty damn cheesy television over the past few years. They’re not necessarily bad shows, mind you, but many of them have dipped into super cheesy territory: overly dramatic, seemingly lacking any sense of self-awareness, the works. I don’t need to name names because you know it when you see it.

Today, Freeform (formerly ABC Family) released a trailer for Marvel’s new teen-centric series Cloak and Dagger, and it could just be the editing in this trailer, but man, this show looks like Chester Cheetah: dangerously cheesy.

New Warriors TV Series Team - Squirrel Girl

Earlier this month, Freeform gave a straight-to-series order to New Warriors, a new TV show based on the Marvel Comics title of the same name, which focuses on a team that is basically a junior varsity version of the Avengers.

guardians of the galaxy 3 end current team

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but director James Gunn is already looking ahead to the next volume in his space romp saga.

Gunn recently confirmed that he’ll be returning to direct the third installment of his wildly popular superhero movie, and thus help shepherd in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But the the next decade of the MCU may shake up the galaxy as we know it, with Gunn hinting that the current “iteration” of the Guardians team won’t make it through the next film.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Soundtrack

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, and while seeing the next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the biggest draw of the sequel, the film’s soundtrack is also a big deal for fans. We’ve gotten a tease of some of the songs that will be in the movie by way of various trailers and TV spots, but James Gunn has cautioned that not all of those songs will be on the soundtrack or Star-Lord’s Awesome Mix Vol. 2. Now we don’t have to wonder which songs will make the cut any longer.

Marvel has just released the full tracklist for Awesome Mix Vol. 2, and it’s quite the funky assembly of music, with plenty of tracks that are well known and some that are a little more obscure. Check out the full Guardians of the Galaxy 2 soundtrack setlist below. Read More »
