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.

avengers infinity war score

When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige announced Avengers: Infinity War, it was positioned as a two-film epic crossover event that would be the culmination of everything Marvel had planned up to that point. So with both films about to start shooting concurrently, I thought it might be fun to take a look at all the characters confirmed or rumored to be part of Avengers: Infinity War, and theorize how they may play into this story.

Fox X-Men tv series

Over the weekend, Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb told us the X-Men series developing on Fox was changing from early concepts. Originally pitched as a series about the Hellfire Club, new creator Matt Nix is taking the show in another direction. Today, after a panel for the Television Critics Association, Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Dana Walden told us more about the hour-long drama she is developing with Nix.

“There will be some iconic characters but mostly this is about a new family,” Walden said. “It’s about an average family who encounters this extraordinary world and children who have mutant powers and they end up on the run, so it’s a little bit underground railroad in terms of a storytelling spine.”  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 »
