Welcome to the MCU Weekly Pulse, a rundown of all the stories throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe that we didn’t cover in News or Features this past week.

Daredevil Season 2 Promo Images, Loeb Comments On Punisher Series

With the release of the second Daredevil trailer for Season 2 this week, we not only got more of a look at Elektra’s (Elodie Yung) character, but we get a better idea of what Foggy (Eldon Henson) and Karen (Deborah Ann Woll) would be up to. Marvel shared looks at both of their characters this week, giving us an idea of the position we’ll find each of them in this coming season.

We also have a new promo image for Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle, seen holding Daredevil’s mask with a smoking bullet hole in the forehead.

Dalton Talks Ward’s Future On S.H.I.E.L.D., New BTS Photos

With the mid-season premiere of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. inching closer, TV Guide spoke with Grant Ward actor Brett Dalton about what to expect in regards to the creature now jockeying his body.

“The Creature, I think, is a great name for it,” Dalton teases, without giving away exactly who – or what – he’s playing now. “It seems it can inhabit bodies and convincingly portray whoever they’re inhabiting. Is there Ward in there? What are his intentions? What does it mean for Malick? Is it human? Inhuman? Who is this creature? We’re going to have to see what it’s like when this creature is now not on Maveth anymore, but in fact back here.”

Along with that, the title for episode 12 has been revealed to be “The Inside Man”; as of right now, there’s no synopsis available.

We also have a shot of the new Secret Warriors with Daisy, Joey, and Lincoln joined by Yo Yo Rodriguez, played by Natalia Cordova

And finally, a throwback behind-the-scenes set photo of showrunner Jed Whedon in the Gravitonium vault from Season 1.

The confusing text of the tweet was later clarified to mean the show would be returning soon, not the Gravitonium, which has been conspicuously absent since the first season.

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns to ABC on March 8th.

Latest Guardians Cast Addition Speaks On Role, Thanos’ Daughters Share BTS Photos

Elizabeth Debicki is one of the most recent additions to the cast of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. While we don’t know who’ll she’ll play yet, the actor spoke briefly on the audition process for the film with EW.

“It was quite painless. It was a really enjoyable audition experience,” she says. “I’m surprised to hear that they’re legendary. For me, it was kind of great. It was fun.”

When pressed for further info on her character though, she was justifiably tight-lipped.

“I don’t trust myself. I’m like Jed,” she said, referring to her Night Manager character. “Any second I’m going to slip up.”

And thanks to Karen Gillan and Zoe Saldana, we’ve got a couple of behind-the-scenes photos of their painting process that allows them to become the alien sisters Nebula and Gamora respectively.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will be in theaters on May 5th, 2017.

Agent Carter Musical Composer On The Number, New Batch Of BTS Pics

One of the standout moments on Agent Carter this week was the musical number that opened episode 9. PR Newswire talked to composer Christopher Lennertz, who collaborated with Tony winner David Zippel, on the creation of the song and the collaboration.

“It was such a thrill to collaborate on a song with David. His musical style blended well with the jazzy musical tone we were going for, especially on this episode.”

“Peggy is sexy and seductive and with the strings one can slip into espionage and tension,” Lennertz explains.”

And thanks to the cast and crew, we’ve got a bunch of new behind-the-scenes photos from the show.
