Early on in development of Marvel’s Netflix Daredevil, comic icon Drew Goddard signed on to take the reigns, only to bow out for Sony’s Sinister Six extension of the Amazing Spider-Man franchise. We all know how that went, but with Daredevil Season 2 on the horizon, how much more involved might Goddard be?

Marvel went a bit light on TV at Comic-Con 2015, between Agent Carter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s dual panel, and Marvel Animation, but we can always expect New York, home of the Defenders to deliver. Jessica Jones, Daredevil, the Agents and all the rest will be on hand for New York Comic-Con 2015, and so will we.
If you saw Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, then you, like us, immediately began mentally fan-casting the incredibly kick-ass Rebecca Ferguson in pretty much every upcoming film — in particular, we’d really love to see her join the MCU as Captain Marvel. According to the latest rumor, Marvel really wants that to happen, too.
For months, we’ve waited on Marvel’s Netflix Jessica Jones to at last announce its 2015 premiere (or at least a real photo) and just one month prior to New York Comic-Con, our second Defender has officially come out of hiding. It’s time the world knew her name, as Jessica Jones sets a November premiere by its first teaser!
Earlier this week, Batman vs. Superman star Jesse Eisenberg said that their superhero movie would be “very serious” while alluding to Marvel and dropping a passive-aggressive dig on other “cartoonish” superhero movies. Today, Batman vs. Superman director Zack Snyder echoed that sentiment, but didn’t beat around the bush, mentioning Ant-Man by name and calling Marvel’s movie just a “flavor of the week”.
Earlier this year Marvel revealed their full upcoming film lineup through 2019, including plans to team up with Sony for a Spider-Man reboot, allowing the web-slinger to crossover into the MCU. During that big Marvel presentation, the studio also showed a teaser for Avengers: Infinity War, featuring the big bad Thanos in possession of all the Infinity stones. That footage leaked online and gave fans a very blurry look at the teaser, but you’ll be able to see a legitimate, high-res version of it when Avengers: Age of Ultron hits Blu-ray.

You’d need some sort of … television … guidance … periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you, we’ve compiled over 30 of Fall 2015's biggest must-see premieres. Remember to sleep, and take in the onslaught of fall 2015's TV madness by our full preview!
As has been reported heavily this week, there’s been a restructuring at Marvel Studios, with the company disengaging from Marvel Entertainment and CEO Ike Perlmutter and instead reporting directly to Disney. This is great news for Marvel Studios and president Kevin Feige, who will now have more control over the direction (and finances) of the MCU. But Feige was very close to leaving the studio entirely thanks to problems with Captain America: Civil War.
Something big is coming. Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have fought Hydra, the Inhumans, and all-manner of super-powered threat, but even after assembling their own team of Secret Warriors, there may be monsters waiting in the wings. See for yourself by the first full trailer for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3!
It’s been kind of a big week for Marvel — we haven’t really covered it here, but the company had a bit of a shakeup, as Marvel Studios disengaged from Marvel Entertainment, with Kevin Feige taking the movie end of things over to Disney and gaining more control over the MCU. On the heels of that major news, Chris Evans has revealed that he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Clearly things are pretty good over at Marvel right now.
