Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Come Swinging Into The Dubsmash Wars
Last week, Team Carter (Hayley Atwell and James D’Arcy) recruited Miss Piggy to help them with their first video for the Dubmash Wars for charity. This week, Team S.H.I.E.L.D. (Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg) retaliated with their first video, which included cameos from both Adrianne Palicki (Bobbi Morse) and Patton Oswalt (the Koenig’s).
You can watch the video, which is pretty great, by heading over here.
Also of note? We’re still only in round one of the Dubsmash Wars for charity and already over $20,000 has been raised between both teams.

Avengers: Age of Ultron “Berserker” Unused Gray Hulk Explained
Before Avengers: Age of Ultron officially hit movie theaters earlier this year, there were plenty of rumors surrounding the film – one of those rumors happened to be that the gray Hulk from the comics was originally planned for the film. And when the Hulk Funko Pop! figure for the film was released, and appeared to have a gray coloring to it? The rumors seemed to grow even more rampant. As it turns out, director Joss Whedon did have plans to include a gray Hulk in the film, just not the one fans were familiar with from the comics.
Yeah. What Joss wanted to do was he said, “I wanted to have a Hulk that’s this berserker Hulk.” Berserker Hulk was this Hulk that Hulks out, was what we had come up with on set. And then we sort of started talking about, “Well what are those extremes?” And ILM started playing with a deformed body with a deformed face with one eye larger than another. You know, like crooked teeth, and drooling, and red eyes, and all this kind of stuff.
Then we started playing with color and we started to de-saturate him and give him sort of red around his eyes and made him look strung-out heroin addict Hulk was the idea. Sort of like where he has totally lost it and he’s gone totally crazy. And then we gradually tended towards a grayer and grayer version till effectively we got gray Hulk.
They eventually decided against it, fearing fans would compare this version of the Hulk to the gray Hulk from the comics.
We tried a few shots in the film with that sort of much grayer version. And then we’re thinking, “Will people confuse this with the gray Hulk from the comics? And is that a good thing or a bad thing?” Eventually, I think we backed off a little bit of that and made him greener so that…we didn’t want to confuse people in creating a new character, per se, in that way. So we ultimately backed off. But we had gone pretty extreme in the looks for him.
As of right now, Hulk’s next appearance in the MCU is unconfirmed with Mark Ruffalo stating the character was cut from Captain America: Civil War and James Gunn repeatedly stating the Hulk will not be in Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2. For now, you can catch Ruffalo as the Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron which is now out on digital.

Is Daredevil Getting A New Suit?
The official Daredevil page on Facebook posted the image below today with the caption, “A hero never fears the darkness — he embraces it. #Daredevil.” Now, these teaser doesn’t necessarily mean anything. The suit does appear lighter in this image, but that is more than likely due to the lighting.
Still, it’s a pretty great teaser image.
