Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The fourth season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is well underway and the show has already begun picking up awards. Last weekend at the 22nd Annual California on Location Awards, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s location manager Justin Hill came away with the top award in the one-hour category beatinig out Westworld and Rosewood in the process.
Avengers: Infinity War
As we saw earlier this week, there’s much speculation online that filming for Marvel’s mega-blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War has started already, although the film wasn’t originally slated to begin filming in January.
And it could be just pure coincidence, but Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito took to Twitter this week to post a picture posing with the pair of writers behind Infinity War, Stephen McFeely and Chris Markus.

Daredevil star Charlie Cox, who plays the series’ titular character, took a break from filming The Defenders to partner with Lootcrate and deliver Daredevil stocking caps to children at Blythedale Children’s Hospital in Valhalla, New York.
We were honored to share some of the @Daredevil beanies that were featured in March’s crate with none other than the Man Without Fear himself. Charlie Cox is active with children’s hospitals and charities, and we are so proud to have helped him deliver smiles to these young folks at @blythedalechildrenshospital. ❤️ Thanks to Charlie and the @Marvel team! #daredevil #charliecox #marvel #charities #kids #lootcrate
It’s no secret that one of the biggest takeaways from Doctor Strange was the stunning visual effects, and much of the marketing surrounding the film before it’s premier certainly lived up to hype: take this building in Hong Kong for example, or these black light posters AMC gave to fans on opening weekend. The movie’s director, Scott Derrickson, posted a picture of another black light movie poster of which only 100 were produced.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2
As we reported earlier this week, some of the cast and crew of Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 were heading back to reshoot certain scenes for the movie debuting in May of next year. Actress Karen Gillan took to her Instagram page this week to post this picture of herself with colleague Pom Klementieff with some decked-out Guardians shoes, courtesy of fellow actor Michael Rooker.
Jessica Jones, which premiered exactly a year ago today, has been confirmed for a second season for quite a while now and as such, the show’s social media accounts are still very active. Actress Krysten Ritter may be busy filming The Defenders now, but the actress took to Instagram to post a few behind the scenes pictures this week of her stunt doubles and stand-ins.
With music such a big part of the production of Luke Cage, it’s not surprising the cast and crew of the show are serious about their musical tastes. In an interview with Hip-Hop Wired, actors Mahersala Ali and Theo Rossi break down their top five hip hop artists.
And in a bit of sad news this week, actress Simone Missick took to Instagram to pay her respects after learning of the passing of soul singer Sharon Jones. Jones, who lost her battle with pancreatic cancer this week at the age of 60, was featured in the closing scene of the Luke Cage season one finale as her and her band “The Dap-Kings” performed 100 Days, 100 Nights.
I had the wonderful opportunity to meet @sharonjones while filming the season finale of @marvelslukecage There were so many things about this woman that inspired me: she had found huge success later in life(which for me was a testament that things happen in God’s time); she was a cancer survivor; and she had the most warm, down to earth, jubilant spirit. She felt just as blessed to be there as we were honored to have her. And although for only a brief moment in her life and mine, I feel thankful that our paths were able to cross. #rip #sharonjones #cancersucks #lukecage #soulmusic
In exciting news for fans of Spider-Man, it was announced that the first footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming will debut before December’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This week, actress Zendaya posted an image of the young cast of the web-slinger’s first solo MCU flick together.
Stan Lee, the creator of many of the comic book characters we’ve come to know and love, revealed this week who would win in a battle between The Hulk and Thor, and the answer might be a little surprising. When asked about who would win, Stan summed it up with a pretty quick statement:
I would have to say Thor, because as strong as Hulk is, he’s still a mortal. Thor is one of the Norse gods!
