Daredevil & Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Land Emmy Nominations

Before Emmy nominations were announced yesterday, Marvel fans were hopeful that Agent Carter and Daredevil would receive some recognition. For Agent Carter, fans hoped that Hayley Atwell‘s performance as Peggy would land her a nomination, while fans of Daredevil hoped that Charlie Cox and Vincent D’onofrio would received nominations for their excellent performances during season one. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the cast. While Marvel Television did land a few Emmy nominations, none of them were for acting. Agent Carter ended up being completely shut out, while Daredevil and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. managed to score a few nominations.

Captain Marvel Co-Writer Discusses The Writing Process For The Film

Marvel officially announced that Nicole Perlman & Meg LeFauve would write the screenplay for the upcoming Captain Marvel film back in April. Since then, news has been relatively quiet, although there have been mentions of Emily Blunt possibly being eyed for the role.

Speaking with Wired, Nicole Perlman talked about how writing Captain Marvel has proven to be more difficult than it was to write Guardians of the Galaxy.

“We’ve been talking a lot about archetypes and what we want this movie to be about and just how to write a strong female superhero without making it Superman with boobs. … Meg and I are doing a lot of brainstorming and we’ll catch ourselves and say, ‘Wait a minute, what are we saying [here] about women in power?’ Then we have to say, ‘Why are we getting so hung up on that? We should just tell the best story and build the best character.’ And then we have this constant back-and-forth about how to tell a story that is compelling, entertaining, moving, kick-ass, and fun, and also be aware of what those larger implications might be. It’s a lot more complicated than just writing Guardians.”

Captain Marvel will hit movie theaters on November 2, 2018.

Spidey Meets The Punisher

Shortly after Tom Holland was announced as the new Spider-Man, Jon Bernthal was confirmed as Frank Castle, a.k.a. The Punisher for season two of Daredevil.

Had an amazing time hanging with this guy. Much love brother. #pilgrimage #brothers.

So naturally, when Holland posted the above photo to his Instagram page earlier this week, it ignited a frenzy among MCU fans. The photo seems to have been taken while they were filming the movie Pilgrimage together.

Bernthal is currently in New York where they are filming season two of Daredevil, while Holland was said to be in Atlanta filming scenes for Captain America: Civil War earlier this week.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. & Agent Carter Soundtracks Coming Soon

During the Marvel Television panel at SDCC, it was announced that soundtracks for both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter would be released later this year.

Oddly enough, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which will enter its third season when it returns this September, has not released a soundtrack for the show previously. In fact, the only Marvel show to have relegated a soundtrack so far has been Daredevil, which was released shortly after the show launched on Netflix. No further information has been provided, although I’d suggest following Marvel Music on Twitter.

Kevin Feige Talks Black Widow Criticisms

When Kevin Feige and Marvel announced the official Phase Three line-up last October, there was one movie missing that fans had hoped to see – Black Widow. While it was wonderful to see Captain Marvel included in the Phase Three line-up, many fans had hoped to see Natasha finally lead her own solo film.

When asked why a Black Widow film hadn’t been a part of the announcement, Feige stated that Natasha was a vital part of the team and that they’d had big plans for her. And then Avengers: Age of Ultron happened, and many fans took issue with the “monster” line uttered by Natasha.

In a recent interview, Feige addressed the Black Widow remarks, saying, “In terms of essays written about Black Widow in ‘Ultron,’ I think they’re all valid. Everybody’s opinions are valid… That Black Widow went through a program in which she was forced to have her reproductive organs removed is probably a little upsetting to her. So that people would be upset that she’s upset — that’s a little strange.”

Black Widow will return in next year’s Captain America: Civil War.
