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’ Behind The Scenes


We haven’t gotten much on Iron Fist when it comes to the story (other than some bloody set photos this week), but we are definitely seeing that co-stars Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick are having a good time behind the scenes.

Holland On The Spider-Man Set


Earlier this week, Tom Holland proved that he was perfectly capable of pulling off his own stunts. Director Jon Watts, however, shared a more quiet moment with the star of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Plays Ball

The premiere date for season four of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is inching closer, and the cast seems pretty excited about what they are putting together.

When the team returns, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be at a new 10 p.m. timeslot, which traditionally opens up options for more adult material on network television. Clark Gregg hinted at the direction this more adult material could go, but it seems very unlikely.

This new 10pm time slot has really opened things up on #agentsofshield (premiere sept 20)

Of course, this season we’ll be meeting Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider. The actor shared another view of the characters iconic car this week.

Evidently the team is getting along so well these days, they are starting a softball league.

Maybe one day the S.H.I.E.L.D. team can play the team from Nelson and Murdock.

We All Need More Thor


This week, we finally got to see what Thor was up to while he and Bruce Banner were missing from Captain America: Civil War. The adventures of Thor as an everyday person, living with Darryl, were so entertaining that there is a petition to give the pair their own show. If you are excited about the idea of seeing more, head on over to Change.org to help make it happen!

Meanwhile, on the set of Thor: Ragnarok, director Taika Waititi took a moment to pose with fans and a special Mjolnir signed by the cast.

Doctor Strange Ticket Giveaway


If you would like to see Doctor Strange early, and also need a credit card, Marvel is running a contest to win tickets to an advance screening.

Of course, there is an option to enter with no purchase necessary. Good luck to all that try!

Brie Larson Represents


It may be a while before we actually get to see Brie Larson take the role of Captain Marvel, but this week she is showing us that she is definitely representing the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I’ll never stop repping my teams. @marvel #tokyuhands Til the end. ????

Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 2


James Gunn has been incredibly accessible behind the scenes of Guardians of the Galaxy 2. This week, he shared a little behind-the-scenes tidbit from post-production history.

For the past few years we’ve used Animation Room 12 on the Disney lot to screen our Guardians of the Galaxy cuts and visual effects reviews. This was, at one time, Walt’s private screening room. The top photo is Walt in Animation 12 back in the day. The bottom photo is us recreating it on a lark when we were about to finish up the first movie (Marvel folks Kevin Feige, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz are directly in front of me). Today both of these photos hang in the hallway outside Animation 12. We’ve just had a brand new, state-of-the-art screening room built on the lot just for our use, and we couldn’t be happier. But I’ll always be fond of the fun and history we became a part of in Anim 12. #GotG #Disney #WaltDisney #GotGVol2

However, being accessible to the fans means that the director is hearing all of the comments fans have been sharing. Gunn recently went to Facebook to express some of his frustrations with the attitudes of some segments of fandom.

Of course, one way that the fans have been treated to an early look at Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 was at San Diego Comic-Con, when the Ravagers appeared in full costume. It turns out that Marvel Studios thanked the Ravagers for putting on such a good show with a special framed print.
