Dubmash Wars For Charity
One of the best things about the Marvel cast is how they interact with fans online. They hold impromptu q&a sessions with fans, they respond to tweets, and they constantly voice their appreciation for the support they receive from Marvel fans. But one of the best things about the Marvel cast is how they enjoy having fun with the fans.
It all started during SDCC, when Chloe Bennet and Clark Gregg decided to challenge Dubsmash queen, Hayley Atwell, to a Dubsmash battle. It was all good and fun, and then it kind of exploded, resulting in Atwell flying to Atlanta just to film a Dubsmash video with Chris Evans, and Gregg sporting his best Carter look as he cried over the Atwell/Evans kiss. It was pretty great, and now they’re looking to outdo themselves by turning the Dubsmash Wars into a charity benefit.

Team Carter will be raising money for Stomp Out Bullying, while Team S.H.I.E.L.D. will be raising money for St. Jude’s Children Hospital. The contest officially starts on Septemeber 2nd, so be sure to stay on the lookout!
Special Effects Breakdown For Daredevil
While Daredevil is certainly the most grounded of the Marvel projects so far, that doesn’t mean the show doesn’t rely on special effects.
In an interview with Tech Times, Bryan Godwin, CEO of Shade VFX, talked about how special effects should ultimately help to support a story.
“I think the goal of most visual effects are — or at least should be — to support the story,” Godwin exclusively told Tech Times. “[You] don’t pull the audience out of the experience they’re having. Our favorite projects are ones where we work closely with filmmakers, directors, writers and producers to design effects that really pack a punch, without suspending the audience’s disbelief of the world they’re in.”
Daredevil season two is currently filming in New York for an estimated April 2016 release. Fans are able to stream the first season of the show in full on Netflix now.
Peter Parker’s Bedroom Filmed For Civil War
We don’t know much about Tom Holland‘s part as Peter Parker in Civil War as Peter Parker. It was said to be a cameo, and that he’d already finished filming in Atlanta, before he was spotted in Germany for more filming just last week. Shortly after Holland was cast as Spider-Man, it was announced that actress Marisa Tomei was offered the role of Aunt May, with the expectation being that she’d make her first appearance as the character in Captain America: Civil War.
While nothing official was ever announced on Marvel’s end regarding Tomei, it’s starting to look as though those initial reports may in fact be true as it appears Peter’s room was one of the locations filmed while production was still underway in Atlanta.
Both the chair and desk pictured above are said to be props used for a scene in Peter’s room, indicating that it’s pretty dang likely we’re going to be meeting Aunt May well before the still untitled Spider-Man reboot hits movie theaters on July 28, 2017!
Hulk Concept Art From Avengers
If you’re an MCU fan, one Twitter account that you should definitely be following is that of concept artist Andy Park. Not only is he responsible for a good amount of the designs we see on the big screen, but he’s also known to share unused designs he worked on with fans online.
As of late, he’s been sharing a lot of Scarlet Witch designs, which we’ve been recapping in our MCU Weekly Pulse for a few weeks now, but this past week he decided to change things up. Park released a few concept art images he worked on for the first Avengers film, this time turning the focus onto Bruce Banner himself, the Hulk.

A Few Small Updates On Luke Cage
With production having recently wrapped on Jessica Jones, it’s time to begin shifting our attention to Netflix’s next Marvel show, Luke Cage. We know that Mike Colter will star as the titular character, and that Cheo Hodari Coker will serve as the showrunner, and it was just announced that actress Alfre Woodard has just joined the cast, but there isn’t much else that we know at this point.
Thanks to a new piece by Variety, we at least know a couple of more folks involved with the production on Luke Cage. Editor Tirsa Hackshaw (House of Lies, Jessica Jones) and cinematographer Manuel Billeter (Orange Is the New Black) have joined the series. With the production staff coming together, it’s only a matter of time before casting announcements start making their way out. Luke Cage, which was originally rumored to begin production this month, should begin filming relatively soon.
