Luke Mitchell (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Tomorrow People) and Michelle Hurd (Dardevil, Devious Maids, Law & Order: Svu) will potentially flesh out the backstory of Jaimie Alexander’s mysteriously tattooed Jane, TVLine has learned.
Mitchell’s Roman and Hurd’s character (whose name has not yet been revealed) are members of the shadowy organization that sent Jane to the FBI — sans memory and with those cryptic markings all over her body.

Question: Will Once Upon a Time pick up right where they left off in the finale (like, is it the next day after Jekyll and Hyde come to town)? Or will there be a few weeks where the town is normal — the “calm before the storm,” so to speak? — Shannon
Ausiello: The answer is A) not the next day nor B) weeks later but C), Season 6 will open just moments after Hyde arrived in Storybrooke and ominously greeted Regina. »
Marvel Studios TV shows exist in the same shared universe as the big screen McU films. The series’ often make references to the films. Why, then, do the films never acknowledge anything that happens on television or on Netflix?
We all know that the Dceu is completely unrelated to its TV shows, but the same is not true for any Marvel-based shows. Agents of Shield, Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Agent Carter all exist within the McU. These shows frequently use events from the films as part of their storyline. For instance, the entire trajectory of Agents of Shield was altered by the fall of Shield plot used in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The alien attack on New York from The Avengers was mentioned many times as part of Wilson Fisk’s (Vincent D’Onofrio) motivation on Daredevil. Lady Sif (Jamie Alexander) has popped up a few times on Agents of Shield. »

Earlier this month, Marvel confirmed that Thor: Ragnarok will start production on July 4, with the studio already setting a November 3, 2017 release date. Over the past few weeks, new cast members and plot details have surfaced, but today, we have our first look at one of the sets being built for this Phase 3 sequel. While we don't know exactly what this building is, it certainly appears to be one of the Asgardian dwellings.
Gold Coast Bulletin reveals that several outdoor sets are being built at Village Roadshow Studios in Oxenford, Australia. While none of the cast members are present, since filming hasn't begun yet, that will surely change in the weeks ahead. Hopefully we'll also get the first official story details when shooting starts, to combat the numerous rumors that have sprung up as of late.
One of the most prevalent rumors is that the new villain Hela will team up »
Say what you will about “armchair activism,” but the squeaky wheel gets the oil. At least when it comes to progressing media beyond its comfort zone of straight white male narratives. After a bumpy start, Marvel has righted the ship with their cinematic universe, adding in more Poc (People of Color) and women both behind and in front of the camera. One of the worst offenders as far as diversity went in the McU was the Thor franchise. Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), one of the world’s top astrophysicists, was regulated to a distressed damsel. Heimdall (Idris Elba) was a glorified elevator attendant. Frigga (Rene Russo) fridged, Hogun (Asano Tadanobu) vanished. Sit (Jamie Alexander) fared better, but not by much. Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi is looking to break that terrible track record. Speaking to The Daily Beast about his upcoming film Hunt of the Wilderpeople, the questions inevitably turned to Marvel. »

It turns out Archie Panjabi is never that far from the Nsa.
Remember all of the shenanigans they pulled on The Good Wife?
Well, Panjabi is of the mind that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em, and is jumping on board Blindspot Season 2 in a major recurring role in which she'll be playing a member of the sneaky group.
Not just a member, but the head of a secret division of the Nsa that has been tracking Jane Doe from afar.
How much more secret can you possibly get than the Nsa?!
It appears we're about to find out.
This is Panjabi's first major role since leaving The Good Wife a year before the series ended. Her character, Kalinda, walked out and was never seen again.
Panjabi is all about secrecy.

Last year, Viola Davis made history as the first African-American woman to win the lead actress prize, and she could well repeat this year for her searing work on “How to Get Away With Murder.” With the exception of Elisabeth Moss, whose “Mad Men” ended its on-air run last year, Davis’ competition is likely to be the same: Claire Danes (“Homeland”), Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”), Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”).
Or, voters could choose to recognize Julianna Margulies, who has already won twice for “The Good Wife” — most recently in 2014 — yet wasn’t even nominated last year. With the series finale still fresh in voter’s minds, they would be wise to reward Margulies for her seven seasons of remarkable work. Along those lines, Michelle Dockery, nominated in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for “Downton Abbey,” could slip back in now that the show has ended.

Last week, Marvel officially announced the cast for next year’s Phase Three threequel Thor: Ragnarok, and now two of the stars of the God of Thunder’s next solo adventure have been discussing the film in Mark Ruffalo, who will be reprising the role of The Hulk, and new addition Karl Urban, who is set to portray Skurge the Executioner.
“It’s an intergalactic buddy road movie with Banner and Thor,” Ruffalo tells E! Online. “I think it will be smashing. You’ll see a lot more Hulk. The Hulk gets Hulk-ier. The Hulk Hulks out. Hulk-ier and bigger. [Cate Blanchett] plays the worst of the worst. So evil. She is going to kill us. [Hela] is such a great part she gets to play.”
“I read a fantastic script that was action packed and full of great characters,” Urban tells IGN. »

The “Blindspot” Season 1 finale is upon us, and we have plenty of questions going into the final hour, including whether Jane Doe really is Taylor Shaw, following last week’s deathbed confession that Weller’s father apparently did kill Taylor as a child, leaving her “under the fort.” If that’s true, then who is Jane?
Regardless of her real identity, Jane is running out of people to believe in, after Oscar shot and killed Mayfair in Episode 22 to prevent the disgraced FBI boss from revealing the truth about Jane’s unwitting frame job. In Variety‘s exclusive sneak peek from the May 23 season finale, we see Jane reach out to a former suspect, hacker Ana Montes (guest star Aimee Carrero), who was first introduced in Episode 6, for help with Oscar.
“Someone I trusted did something horrible — I don’t know who I can trust anymore,” Jane tells Ana. “I »
