When Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns after ' inaugural run comes to a close this fall, a familiar face will join the title heroes once more.

Traditionally, when comic-book super-heroes are adapted for the screen, they are accompanied by big orchestras playing heroic themes. Think John Williams’ “Superman” theme or Danny Elfman’s “Spider-Man” music.
For its TV series, however, Marvel has thrown out the old rulebook. Like the Marvel Universe itself, not every hero is alike; some of them don’t even wear colorful costumes. No fewer than 13 series based on Marvel Comics are either on the air now or will be by this time next year, and their scores are as diverse as the characters themselves.
“I love what Marvel has done,” says Dawn Soler, senior vice-president for music for ABC Studios, which oversees most of the Marvel series. “They are not locking into a ‘Marvel sound.’ Super-heroes are becoming a different thing than they were way back when. They are worlds apart. Every score is different.”
The approaches vary widely, from the psychedelic colors of “Legion” to the noirish »

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers for all eight episodes of Marvel's The Defenders.]
When Marvel first assembled The Avengers, Earth's mightiest heroes found themselves seeking revenge against Loki (Tom Hiddleston) for the death of one of their own: Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), stabbed to death during the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier invasion. Entering The Defenders, Marvel fans were rightly concerned that a similar death would serve as a rallying point for the Netflix heroes — specifically, Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson), the courageous medical professional who has weaved in and out of the lives of all four Defenders. »

The idea of cross-overs between Marvel television shows and Marvel Cinematic Universe movies is one that fans have been discussing since Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. first hit the airwaves in 2013. The series is, of course, essentially a spinoff from Phase 1 of the film franchise – with Clark Gregg reprising the role of Agent Phil Coulson that he played to great effect in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Avengers and a number of Marvel One-Shots.
Since the show debuted, we’ve seen Agent Carter also spinoff to network television, while Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist have all unfolded with Netflix holding the reins. Though those shows are not strictly spun from the movies directly, they all reference significant events that have occurred in the McU.
But, with the films providing spinoff material for small screen endeavours, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Elizabeth Henstridge says that logistics prevent that plotting relationship happening in reverse. »

While Tom Holland continues his press tour for Spider-Man: Homecoming, the actor has revealed that the Marvel One-Shot short films is being resurrected. This comes just a few days after the young actor confirmed an Iron Man 2 fan theory, that the young boy with the Iron Man mask who stands up to a powerful drone, is in fact a much younger version of his Peter Parker character. Now it seems the actor has spilled the beans on another Marvel project in the waiting, after revealing he wants to make a short film with Paul Rudd as Ant-Man.
These revelations come during a new Uproxx interview with Tom Holland for Spider-Man: Homecoming, where the actor was asked if he would like another McU character to swing by, like Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark, in the already-confirmed Spider-Man: Homecoming 2.

I would imagine that, if you're an actor who's an integral part of Marvel's cinematic or extended universe, it's tough to find room in your busy schedule to participate in other projects.

A few words about prosopagnosia - better known as face-blindness...
Welcome to Geeks Vs Loneliness, our spot on the site where we chat about things that may be affecting you, or people you know. This week, we're handing over to Shawm Kreitzman, who wants to talk about something we're betting many of you - us included - hadn't heard of before...
A few years ago, I stumbled across the trailer for Anomalisa on YouTube.
I had never heard of the film, but I watched the trailer with mild interest and thought it looked like a curious (if slightly melancholy) piece of stop-motion animation, nicely executed, but ultimately unremarkable. I let my mouse wander on to something else, and didn’t give it another thought.

With spoilers for season 4, we look at how Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. turned its lengthy run into a good thing instead of a drag...
Warning: this article contains spoilers for Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s season 4 finale, World’s End. It will be re-promoted at a later date for those viewing at UK pace.
22 episodes is a lot to fill, and the first season of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. arguably fell prey to this network-mandated issue. Forgettable filler instalments where the gang investigated a mysterious thing were commonplace, which felt like an excuse to kill time before the main villain of the season – the utterly unmemorable Clairvoyant - showed up.
But the show has been on an uptick since then. Appearances from Jaime Alexander’s Lady Sif livened things up, »
