The fluidity of Marvel’s Netflix Defenders schedule and reports of multiple new series in development for the ABC branch leaves plenty of Marvel characters to explore, but we won’t be heading across the pond just yet. Despite recent rumors suggesting “Captain Britain” might lead a new Marvel series, consider the idea officially debunked.

Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ barrels through 2016 to drink a “Parting Shot” for Hunter and Bobbi’s inevitable exit, but is the spinoff worth checking out? Does the team learn about Zombie Ward just yet? Find out in our full review of tonight’s latest ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’!
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ cruises through 2016 to expose “The Inside Man” of an Inhuman symposium, but do the Secret Warriors have an absorbent new member? Does Zombie Ward venture out of his his little monster-cave? Find out in our full review of tonight’s latest ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3 has seen a number of familiar faces return, and another crossing paths with Coulson in the coming weeks hearkens back to the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. itself. Titus Welliver will reprise his role as (ex) Agent Blake on March 29, along with the arrival of Marvel’s “Watchdogs.”
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ kicks off 2016 by “Bouncing Back” full of new Inhumans and Secret Warriors alike, but does Zombie Ward make for a good villain? What new mystery will take us straight into outer space? Find out in our full review of tonight’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ midseason premiere!
It’s well-documented at this point that Marvel movies take no cue from the multiple TV tie-ins, most always the other way around, though Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3's worldwide introduction of Marvel’s Inhumans seemed at least potentially worth a mention. Not so, apparently, as Captain America: Civil War’s writers had no awareness of the TV branch in crafting Cap’s international adventure.
Seeing as the Emmy awards rotate broadcast networks from year to year, it seemed likely that Jimmy Kimmel might suit up to host the awards once the wheel landed on ABC. Good guess, everyone! The network has officially confirmed that the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host will don his tux later this year.
A little inside-baseball saw ABC recently shifting leadership from former boss Paul Lee to Channing Dungey, and as such, little time was wasted issuing 15 renewals across the network. Not only will the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. return for a fourth season, so too will everything from black-ish to Quantico to Dancing With the Stars will get additional runs. That said, who was left off of the list?
For all the Inhumans, Hydra villains and Marvel zombies populating Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in its 2016 return, the team has some pretty dark spaces of their own. Enter the first clip from next Tuesday’s “Bouncing Back” premiere, as Coulson takes Fitz to a pretty dark place in pursuit of Gideon Malick.
As debuted after Agent Carter Season 2 finale “Hollywood Ending,” the latest look at Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Season 3 return shows plenty more Inhuman action, including Matthew Willig’s Lash (using previous footage, though his return is certainly still a possibility). We also see more of the Secret Warriors in action, as well as a new threat aligned with Ward’s new Marvel identity.
