Well, now this is something of a surprise atop last night’s renewal of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter. Marvel has apparently decided not to follow through with its Mockingbird-centric spinoff after all, despite weeks of development and negotiations.

The renewals, pickups and cancellations are flying fast and furious at ABC, but Marvel fans have nothing but good news ahead. Not only will Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. return for a Season 3 this fall, but fan-favorite Agent Carter will suit up for a second season in 2016!
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got stuck playing second fiddle to the Marvel movies last year, but with the Age of Ultron officially come and gone, the Avengers-adjacent ABC series has officially leaped forward to all-out Inhumans war. Find out who suffered the first "Scars" by our full review!
Well hello there, TV super-fan! Did you know that Breaking Bad breakout Jesse Pinkman was almost killed off in Season 1? How about that Joss Whedon hated the original Buffy theme song, or Curb Your Enthusiasm served as a murder alibi? Can you imagine LOST starring Michael Keaton? Why yes, we do have more where that came from!
The Avengers: Age of Ultron won’t officially hit theaters until Friday, but regardless of what Joss Whedon says, Iron Man and his buddies have the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to thank for their next adventure. Tonight’s “The Dirty Half Dozen” staged a massive crossover that directly set up a pivotal sequence of the Avengers sequel, and brought back a fan-favorite to do it. Our full review!
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fully primed us for the Age of Ultron with the direct crossover of “The Dirty Half-Dozen,” but the hour also brought major ramifications for J. August Richards’ Deathlok. We spoke to Richards to break down Mike’s latest change, that Winter Soldier connection, and whether we’ll see Deathlok again this season, or wait until the Infinity War.
One of the main reasons so many people have taken to the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the interconnectedness of it all. At the same time, the attention to continuity and building a new superhero canon has wreaked no small amount of havoc on the creative end, where producers and writers and directors have all butted heads in various ways. The latest bit of weirdness comes via the increasingly honest Joss Whedon, who hasn’t been shy about his friction with Marvel Studios while he’s been promoting Avengers: Age of Ultron. According to Whedon, Marvel Studios wasn't very happy with the decision to make a TV show starring a character (Agent Coulson) they had just killed off in the movies.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has performed an impressive amount of legwork setting up The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but for many a Marvel fan, it always comes back to Coulson standing side-by-side with his fellow Avengers. That reunion may yet take awhile, as Joss Whedon apparently still considers Phil Coulson dead, as of the Age of Ultron.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been doubling down on potential spinoffs and Age of Ultron connections over the last week, and "The Frenemy of My Enemy" was no exception. Find out what pit the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. against Hydra against Deathlok against the Inhumans against Skye's father by our full review, and and which scene might directly lead into Age of Ultron!
The past few weeks, Marvel’s TV universe has been abuzz with news of potential for an Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff, as well as a possible Ms. Marvel series. Speculation has run the gamut, but now it seems Adrianne Palicki’s Mockingbird and Nick Blood’s Lance Hunter have been chosen to lead the spinoff, giving us a good idea of its premise.
