Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has plenty of enemies by its March 3 return, but we never expected one of the Sons of Anarchy to start beef. FX alum Drea de Matteo will go up against Coulson and his increasingly Inhuman teammates when Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns for its 2015 run, but might the new figure have surprising ties to Netflix’s Daredevil?

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm and systematically eradicated most of the ‘Star Wars’ Expanded Universe, the most hardcore fans of the most popular genre franchise on the planet made their displeasure known, but to no avail. To paraphrase one of the greatest Jedi Knights, millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. Disney didn’t buy ‘Star Wars’ so it could navigate a labyrinth of pre-existing novels, comics, and video games. More specifically, Disney didn’t buy ‘Star Wars’ so it could appease the niche group of fans who have kept up with the increasingly complicated Expanded Universe; it bought ‘Star Wars’ to please the much larger audience of everyone else.
It was only a matter of time before the SSR became somewhat aware of what Peggy’s been up to, and it’s fitting that the guy who figures it out is Sousa—like Peggy, Sousa is also often undervalued at work. As Dr. Ivchenko points out, it’s easy for women to be utilized in the field because men underestimate them, just as it’s easy for Sousa to catch on to Carter because he’s often sidelined and viewed as a softy. Ah, stereotypes. They’re so charming.
It was the news we’d all be hoping and wishing and waiting for: last night, Marvel officially announced that they’ve reached an agreement with Sony for a Spider-Man crossover, which could also allow for MCU characters to crossover into Spidey’s own films. On top of that, Marvel is teaming up with Sony for a new ‘Spider-Man’ movie, to hit theaters in 2017. But who will play the web-slinger? As predicted, it won’t be Andrew Garfield. We’ve got a little more info on Marvel and Sony’s plans, which shed even more optimistic light on this very positive (and super exciting!) news.
Yesterday, Sir Patrick Stewart revealed that he would not, as was widely suspected, be returning for ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’. He did, however, tease his involvement in the next ‘Wolverine’ movie saying, “we have been talking about a Wolverine movie, which would team Hugh Jackman and myself together.” He offered no further details, so we took this rumor straight to the man himself, Wolverine, and asked Hugh Jackman for some details.
We spoke to Hugh Jackman earlier today for his upcoming movie ‘Chappie’ (we’ll have much more on that movie soon), and as we were making small talk, we asked Mr. Jackman whether he had heard the news yet about Marvel and Sony Pictures coming to terms on an agreement that would allow Spider-Man to crossover into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He had not. He was very surprised.
By now you already know that Spider-Man is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe as part of a new deal between Marvel and Sony. (By now you’ve also “SQUEEEE!”d about fifty times.) But this pact has ramifications beyond just the Wall-Crawler’s cinematic future. With Sony putting a new solo ‘Spider-Man’ movie on the release calendar for July 28, 2017, that’s necessitated some shuffling of Marvel’s own upcoming movies.
Hold on to your hats, True Believers. The rumors were true: Sony and Marvel have worked out a deal that will allow Spider-Man to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Spider-Man in ‘The Avengers’? Now it’s possible.
Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' will hit the ground running with its 'Inhumans' element in March 3 return "Aftershocks," but the subsequent week will return to a more familiar corner of the MCU, and with a fan-favorite at that. 'Thor' star Jaimie Alexander will put in a second appearance as the battling Lady Sif, only this time the Asgardian won't quite be at her best.
With a movie the size of ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ we’ve been seeing a lot of promo art hit the ‘net in recent months. Obviously we’ve been a little more interested in new concepts, like Vision, Ultron, and Hulkbuster, and today brings even more promo art from Joss Whedon’s upcoming sequel, featuring all that and then some. And judging by some of this art, Ultron might just win his battle.
