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. Read More »

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 »
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 »

Sure, the MCU already has Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Daredevil, and Jessica Jones, with Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Defenders still to come. But if you’re looking for yet another Marvel series to sink your teeth into, you’re in luck — ABC is currently working on Marvel’s Most Wanted, which will follow the further adventures of Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood).
The network gave the S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff an official pilot order last year, and over the past couple of months we’ve seen the project gradually start to come together, with last night’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. setting up the premise of the new series. Today, we’ve got a couple of casting updates, a first look at the new logo, and many interesting comments from executive producer Jeff Bell about the tone and concept of Marvel’s Most Wanted.

First ABC decided they wanted an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff, and then they decided they didn’t, and then they felt like they weren’t sure, and then, way back in August, they finally gave Marvel’s Most Wanted an official pilot order. Now some more details have been revealed about the new series featuring Bobbi Morse (Adrianne Palicki) and Nick Blood (Lance Hunter), and it suggests some interesting developments up ahead for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Although the Inhumans movie isn’t due in theaters for another three and a half years, Marvel seemed to be laying some early groundwork with Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The Inhumans were introduced on the show at the end of last season and have continued to play a major part in the show this season. But according Clark Gregg, that doesn’t necessarily mean we can expect a crossover between Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Inhumans movie. Read More »
