It had been rumored, but now it’s official: Jeph Loeb is on the way out at Marvel Television. Loeb was the Marvel TV head for almost a decade, but the recent promotion of Kevin Feige to Marvel’s chief creative officer lead many to believe Loeb’s time with Marvel was coming to an end. Loeb is said to be in the midst of formulating an exit plan and will announce his departure no later than Thanksgiving.

Marvel Television has not been “connected” to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a long time, but soon, they may be finally sharing the same platform. Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb assures fans that the cancellation of the Marvel Netflix shows like Daredevil, Iron Fist, Punisher, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones and the upcoming series finale of ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. won’t be the end of the small-screen division — Marvel TV is looking to streaming next. Specifically, Disney+. However, as has been the practice for the past few years, the Marvel TV Disney+ series won’t be overlapping with the Marvel Studios titles debuting Disney’s upcoming streaming platform.

Right now, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD is in the middle of its sixth season, but ABC has already renewed the show starring Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Elizabeth Henstridge, Iain De Caestecker, Henry Simmons, Natalia Cordova-Buckley, and Jeff Ward for a seventh season. However, Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb has revealed season seven will be the end.
Deadline has word on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD ending, and thankfully, the show is being allowed to go out on its own terms. For a while, many weren’t sure if Agents of SHIELD would even get a sixth season order, so it was surprising that the show landed a seventh season last fall, before the sixth season had even hit ABC. The network liked the new direction Agents of SHIELD was taking, and they wanted another season, but Jeph Loeb and the producers only said yes after decided to bring things to a close. Read More »

In all the Marvel TV news you’ve been craving, Marvel Television head Jeph Loeb has doubled down on some of the studio’s most unpopular properties. Iron Fist and Inhumans were met with near-universal critical disapproval, but Loeb is teasing even more for fans of these shows.
In case you forgot, everyone’s least-favorite Defender is getting a second season! Iron Fist season 2 is currently in pre-production, and Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Alice Eve has just joined the cast. There are no details on Eve’s role yet, but it’s likely at one point she’ll come in contact with Danny Rand and mutter “Ugh, you’re the worst” under her breath.

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.

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.
