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.
Iron Fist Production Homework
We don’t know what the Iron Fist writers are cooking up behind the scenes, but Quinton Peeples, a producer on the show, posted some of the original comics he has in his office.
It’s always great to see that the creators behind these shows are also fans of the source material. It’s also great to see one actress from the series feeling close to her character.
Punisher Paraphernalia Coming In September
With the new Punisher series in the works, w’re eagerly awaiting anything related to the show. And it looks like Marvel is starting to ramp up their Punisher marketing, with the release of a new set of buttons based on the Netflix version of the character.

Maybe this means that we are closer to having more merchandise for the other Netflix shows, such as Jessica Jones.
Daredevil Season Two Soundtrack Released
This week, Daredevil was nominated for their second consecutive Emmy for sound. Coincidentally, the second season soundtrack was released, so now you can work out to the sounds of Elektra and Matt’s escapades, by John Paesano.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Cast Out and About
Clark Gregg is getting into shape, and he posted a video from his workout session to prove it.
Gregg is working out with Naqam Washington, who fell asleep while watching soccer with Charlie Cox a couple of weeks ago. Washington posted his own video of Gregg’s workout, as the star gets ready for Season Four of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Thor: Ragnarok Suits Up Ruffalo, Announces DP
Earlier this week, we shared some videos that Mark Ruffalo posted from behind the scenes of Thor: Ragnarok. With the CGI necessary to turn the actor into the Hulk, he obviously has lots of downtime to post videos.
