Doctor Strange Agents of SHIELD connection

For the most part, Marvel’s movies and Marvel’s shows operate independently of one another. Characters rarely move between them, and it’s certainly possible to enjoy one side without paying any attention to the other. Still, they all technically belong to the same continuity, and every once in a while, they like to remind you of that fact. Like right now. With Doctor Strange approaching theaters, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has revealed a mystical link to the movie.  Read More »

agents of shield mcu return

After Phil Coulson and the agency helped assemble The Avengers, an ABC television series spin-off launched to tell the ongoing adventures of the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.  But S.H.I.E.L.D wasn’t long for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hydra had infiltrated the group, and the agency was brought down by the events seen in Captain America: Winter Soldier. While the team has continued as a small unofficial faction in the tv series, they have not been seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since. The Marvel movie and television groups have been divided, and even those involved in the shows don’t have much hope for future crossovers. It’s almost like the Marvel universe has been split into two entirely separate cinematic and television dimensions that not even Doctor Strange can merge.

But there may be hope for SHIELD to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. At least if you believe Samuel L Jackson, who plays former SHIELD director Nick Fury. Could a SHIELD MCU return actually happen?

Punisher crossover

Ever since Jon Bernthal made his debut as the Punisher in Daredevil season two, fans have been eager to find out when we’ll see him next. We know for sure he’s getting his own The Punisher solo series, but not when it’ll debut. And then there’s the question of whether he might resurface before then. Is it possible he’ll pop up in one of the other Netflix-Marvel shows, like Iron Fist or The Defenders?

No one official is saying, but recently a small detail about Bernthal’s schedule has led to speculation about Netflix’s future plans for the Punisher character.  Read More »

Agents of SHIELD showrunners interview

The third season finale of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. jumped ahead six months, with (spoiler alert) the S.H.I.E.L.D. team pursuing a runaway Daisy (Chloe Bennet) who can apparently fly. Prior to the time jump Hive (Brett Dalton) met his demise, the second time Dalton’s character has died on the show. Lincoln (Luke Mitchell) also sacrificed himself for the greater good.

Season four not only has to deal with that aftermath, but also promises to introduce Ghost Rider with Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes. We spoke with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. showrunners Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen at a Marvel Television cocktail party for the Television Critics Association.  Read More »

Agents of SHIELD Jason O'Mara

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has a new leader, and it’s Batman. Or at least a guy who sounds a lot like him. Marvel announced today that Jason O’Mara — who, among other things, is known for voicing the Dark Knight in Warner Bros.’ animated DC projects — has been cast as the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the fourth season of the ABC drama. His name has yet to be revealed, but the official description of his character has us wondering if he might be somehow linked to another Marvel Studios TV series.

Agents of SHIELD Season 3 opening

In theory, the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe is connected, from the films to the Netflix and ABC shows. In theory, though, the big- and small-screen sides intersect only rarely, and that disconnect has only seemed to widen since corporate restructuring put Marvel’s series and Marvel’s movies under different leadership. But what about within the Marvel TV universe? Currently, Marvel’s small-screen properties are split between ABC and Netflix. Could Matt Murdock give S.H.I.E.L.D. an assist, or vice versa?

Don’t count on it, says Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg. The actor admits he’d love to see Iron Fist or Luke Cage drop by his show someday, but blames “corporate stuff” for keeping the ABC and Netflix sub-franchises separate. Read what he has to say about the possibility of a SHIELD Netflix Marvel crossover. Read More »

Agents of SHIELD Season 3 opening

The cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. were on a panel at WonderCon last weekend and spoke to the press afterwards. The tight-lipped stars of the Marvel show were able to preview some of the upcoming adventures of this corner of the MCU. Daisy Johnson will have some full Secret Warriors action sequences coming up, said actor Chloe Bennet.

“Fans will be thoroughly satisfied with some of the Secret Warrior action we have coming up,” Bennet said. “It was some of my favorite stuff to shoot ever on this show because it’s something that Daisy’s wanted. I can’t say how it ends in that it’s not going to be like ‘We’re a team and this is how it is forever happy yay!’ It’s not necessarily going to be like that but there’s a couple of really good comic book classic moments that we have with the team.”  Read More »
