Tuesday’s climactic Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. arc lost all “Self Control” over the LMD arc, ending with one whopper of a twist. Daisy and Simmons headed inside the mysterious “Framework,” revealed as a “What If”-type world with one major Winter Soldier tweak. The closing stinger also teased a major return from the series’ past, which producers now confirm for the final April episodes.

Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ loses “Self Control” bringing Season 4’s ‘LMD’ arc to an insane, action-packed climax, but can the third, ‘Matrix’-inspired pod keep the same streak? And is THAT fallen foe really coming back? Find out in our full review of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s latest!
Marvel’s Iron Fist hasn’t teased a central villain in the same way as its Netflix predecessors, but The Defenders are going to need some common enemy to rally against. So it is that Daredevil’s Madame Gao returns in a new Iron Fist featurette, and can The Hand be far behind?
There’s a lot up in the air about what’s next for the X-Men after last summer’s gloomy Apocalypse, including who’ll be onboard to direct the mutants’ latest adventure. A new report indicates that Simon Kinberg himself, after writing, producing, or otherwise having a hand in pretty much every X-Men project to date, might be up for the job.
Game of Thrones had so much fun with Iwan Rheon in a nefarious and regal role, so why would Marvel’s The Inhumans want any different? The ABC-IMAX drama has its first star, as Rheon joins Marvel’s Royal Family as brother to Black Bolt, the dastardly Maximus.
When you go see Logan on March 3, you might want to keep your butt firmly planted in the theater seat after the credits roll, bub. In what is hardly surprising news at all, there is post-credits scene attached to Wolverine’s latest (and last) outing, and though we don’t know what it is just yet, it probably won’t be long before someone lets the cat out of the bag. Until then, feel free to speculate away.
By now, you’ve probably binge-watched Jessica Jones, the second Marvel series from Netflix. But did you know the show was originally set up at ABC under a totally different title? The series began life as A.K.A. Jessica Jones? The comic it was based on, Alias, wouldn’t have worked as the title of the TV series because of the Jessica Garner spy show; eventually producers decided the “A.K.A.” part of the title was unnecessary and shortened the name to just Jessica Jones. There’s a nod to the original title in every episode, however; each episode title begins with “A.K.A.” – Episode 3 of Season 1, for example, is called “A.K.A. It’s Called Whiskey.” That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of the ScreenCrush series You Think You Know TV?
The contract shenanigans surrounding Arrow star Katie Cassidy have made it difficult to project when Laurel (or her Earth-2 counterpart) might return, but the Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 finale might offer a clue. Not only do producers confirm Laurel’s return, but also another fantasy great to rival the appearance of a young George Lucas.
If Supergirl has one thread left dangling all season, it’s the mysterious reveal behind Lynda Carter’s President Olivia Marsdin. Now, a new BTS photo at last confirms the former Wonder Woman’s return, and in Kevin Smith’s next episode at that.
If I were a Marvel sales rep, I would get down on my knees every day and thank Thanos for the series of events that led to Baby Groot. Baby Groot might just be the pinnacle of Hollywood marketing; not only is his cute visage the perfect thing to slap on every action figure, lunch box, and stuffed animal from here to the moon, it’s also a character that sidesteps typical customer cynicism. If fans felt for one moment that Baby Groot was a thinly veiled attempt to sell them more junk, they would push back on James Gunn and Marvel with all their strength. But instead, we are treated to one of the baddest killing machines in the galaxy who happens to be totally adorable, too.
