Two of last year’s TV hits are headed back for a sophomore season that promises big things. Brooklyn 99 dives into Fox Sunday nights and star Melissa Fumero talks about how the cast is more than ready to grab another Golden Globe, plus what might (or might not) be happening between her character and Andy Samberg. Meanwhile, fresh off Captain America Winter Soldier, Marvel’S Agents Of Shield starts out another season that will lead not only to next year’s Avengers, but to a spin off as well and in spite of all that pressure, Clark Gregg says he’s still having a ball.

Clark Gregg, who plays S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Agent Coulson, was recently interviewed about the remainder of the second season of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. He was asked about what the series–which is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe–is currently setting up. Last season tied in to Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Season two aims to introduce the Inhumans to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here’s what Gregg, who happens to be a pretty big comic book fan, had to say about the Inhumans:
At least in the comics, the Inhumans, they're a race of people who've been transformed. They're mutants, more or less. I've always loved that part of the comics. They're people who have evolved differently, and that generates a lot of fear. Some people want to annihilate them. Some people want to lock them up. Some people want to register them. »

At this point in time, Marvel’s visualization of Inhumans is still a ways away, with the superhero flick on course for a release in November 2018. Still, that doesn’t mean that the studio will keep the eclectic heroes on the shelf for the next three years; rather, according to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg, Marvel wants to seed the origins of the characters before their appearance in the McU.
Speaking with Comic Book Resource, the actor touched upon the symbiotic relationship between the show and the overarching universe, which will only continue to evolve as the studio expands its proverbial canvas.
“Inhumans represents a different chapter…At least in the comics, the Inhumans, they’re a race of people who’ve been transformed. They’re mutants, more or less. I’ve always loved that part of the comics. They’re people who have evolved differently, and that generates a lot of fear. »

Inhumans is one of Marvel's lesser known titles, but the studio is certainly hoping to change that. Last year, they announced that we'll be getting an Inhumans movie in November, 2018. With that being a full three years away, they are using their hit ABC series Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to help introduce this cosmic world, a push Guardians of the Galaxy never received. So far, the weekly drama series has already introduced Terragenesis, the process that gives Inhumans their powers. We've also gotten to meet the first official Inhuman from the source material, Daisy Johnson, Aka Chloe Bennet's Skye. Now, Clark Gregg has opened up more about introducing the Inhumans into his show.
Speaking with Cbr, the actor had quite a bit to say about the inclusion of the Inhumans. According to Clark Gregg, this opens a new chapter for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and will definitely change the direction of the show. »
Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Clark Gregg Talks Inhumans and Maybe Coming Back into the Marvel Film Universe. The midseason finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. dropped a huge bombshell in introducing the Inhumans and yet, there’s still more to come according to Clark Gregg. Speaking to Comic Book Resources, [...]

The midseason finale of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was huge, with one fan-favourite character killed off and another transformed into a hero we all know from the comic books as Quake. In a recent interview with Comic Book Resources, Clark Gregg - who has played an Agent Coulson obsessed with discovering the meaning of those alien symbols for some time now - was asked how he feels to have seen the Inhumans into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "I'm excited by it. I think the Inhumans is a big, cool part of the Marvel universe, a great story. And we'll set up something. We'll get to explore it. I'm glad they're entrusting us with it, and I think that they'll take what they're going to do with it, and it will connect. And yet, we'll have the freedom to kind of make our show be our show. I think our show's working »

Last month, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. opened a new chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with its midseason finale ‘What They Become’ [read our review here] , which introduced the concept of the Inhumans prior to their big screen outing in 2018. Speaking to Comic Book Resources, Clark Gregg has spoken about the Inhumans and his excitement for the remaining half of the second season…
“Inhumans represents a different chapter [for the show]. At least in the comics, the Inhumans, they’re a race of people who’ve been transformed. They’re mutants, more or less. I’ve always loved that part of the comics. They’re people who have evolved differently, and that generates a lot of fear. Some people want to annihilate them. Some people want to lock them up. Some people want to register them. Some of them become superheroes. Some of them become monsters. I find that particularly germane. Are we going to accept the people who are different, »

Last night, during the college football national championship game, Marvel finally unveiled the second full-length trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which offers plenty of new footage that wasn't shown in the first trailer from last October. One of the biggest mysteries in this new trailer is the brief appearance of a woman disrobing in a cave, who hasn't been shown before in any of the previous footage, along with another woman who is seen behind Thor (Chris Hemsworth) as he is shocked by what appears to be some sort of electric spark. Who might these women be? There are a few theories floating around the web already, so let's break them down right here.
Who Is The Woman In the Cave?

In the UK, both Skyfall and The Avengers (or Avengers Assemble) are being shown on television tonight on different channels at overlapping times, so fans will only be able to watch one. (That would seem to provoke a reaction like, 'I'm not going to choose between my favourite actor to play James Bond and my favourite writer! That's insane troll logic!')
Bond and Marvel are two of the biggest franchises in the world at the moment, with each set to release their next instalment this year (Spectre and Avengers: Age of Ultron). This being the internet, the default response would be to pit the two against each other, as if one could only be a fan of one franchise, not both. The prepondance of alternative viewing options, like DVDs, TV repeats, etc. ultimately render such a discussion moot, in the colloquial sense of the word, meaning redundant. However, it's »

After teasing us with an ant-sized preview (and a subsequent human-sized one), Marvel Studios gave us our first look at July’s Ant-Man during the Tuesday premiere of Agent Carter with the release of the first trailer for the Peyton Reed-directed film, which Marvel is celebrating as its third-biggest trailer launch ever behind Avengers: Age of Ultron and Iron Man 3 with 29 million views by Friday. The trailer launch was of course accompanied by the release of a poster and »

Agent Carter is genuinely brilliant, with strong writing, real laughs, glamour, compelling plots and not a weak performance in the cast...
This review contains spoilers.
According to the people behind Agent Carter, the TV show only exists because of a huge groundswell of interest and support for the character in the wake of the first Captain America movie. It's not hard to see why. Atwell's performance turned what could've been a thankless position as "Hero's love interest" into a role with genuine heart and vulnerability. If any supporting character from Marvel's cinematic universe deserved a spin-off, it was her.
But between fan expectation and the burden of being Marvel's first female-led property, Agent Carter couldn't really afford to take the best part of a year to reach the point of being watchable, like its sister show Agents Of Shield did. It »
Yesterday Jeremy Renner took to his WhoSay page to post the above image of Hawkeye with a caption saying, "Tues morn. I find myself in costume again. I just can't tell you why. And it still fits!"
We know that Avengers: Age of Ultron would go through some reshoots, but there is some speculation that in this instance it could be for an appearance on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The series' Clark Gregg recently teased the possibility that Hawkeye would appear in the series in a piece of art that he posted on Facebook.
There's always the chance that Renner could be working on another Marvel project other than Age of Ultron, and it would be pretty rad if he popped up in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Renner previously discussed a possible role in Captain America: Civil War, but that hasn't started shooting yet. He also talked about a Hawkeye solo film, »

Jeremy Renner has donned his Hawkeye costume once more for a mystery project.
The actor revealed that he has been shooting again as his Marvel Studios character on his WhoSay page.
"Tues morn. I find myself in costume again," he wrote. "I just can't tell you why. And it still fits!"
He posted a silhouette image of the Avengers' archer with the message.
Renner is next scheduled to appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron in April.
Marvel revealed its planned film slate up to 2019 last year. Neither Hawkeye nor Scarlett Johansson's Black Widow are due to receive a solo movie.
Earlier today, Marvel's The Avengers star Jeremy Renner took to his Twitter account, revealing that he is back in costume as Hawkeye, although he couldn't reveal why. There are likely only two possible scenarios for why the actor is donning his Hawkeye attire once again, either for the previously-reported January reshoots on Marvel's highly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron, or to shoot a cameo or guest starring role on ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. While it most certainly could be for the Avengers: Age of Ultron reshoots, there is evidence that suggests Jeremy Renner is heading to Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., at least for one episode.
Last month, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg posted an intriguing image on his official Facebook page, which showed a stand-off between both Agent Coulson and Hawkeye. The image was from Marvel's Secret Avengers #10 comic released back in November, »
Even with Avengers: Age of Ultron set to hit theaters in May, Agent Carter just might be one of Marvel's most highly anticipated offerings. After the events of 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger, Agent Carter follows Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) as she navigates New York City in the 1940s as a double agent for the Strategic Scientific Reserve - a precursor to S.H.I.E.L.D. As she undergoes secret missions for Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) to clear his name, she is forced to overcome the endless obstacles put in front of her that come from being »

It’s true to say that, initially, Marvel’s Agents Of Shield was a massive disappointment, falling far below the quality of the Marvel films whose world it shared. The opening episodes were formulaic, the action tepid and there were not nearly enough links to the wider Marvel Universe. Additionally, while Clark Gregg’s Phil Coulson moved effortlessly from films to TV, some of the new supporting cast were less than convincing, especially the Brit double act Fitz and Simmons.
However, after that very shaky start, things gradually began to pick up mid-way through the season and then the show was helped immensely by the complete change of direction the show given following the momentous events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The masterstrokes of having Shield infiltrated by old enemy Hydra and the shocking reveal that heroic, dependable agent Grant Ward was actually a murderous traitor upped the »
