News of Marvel’s ABC-IMAX The Inhumans series was quickly followed by curious distinctions that a separate movie might still make it onto the MCU slate. That’s certainly what the sometime-attached Vin Diesel would prefer, as the Guardians of the Galaxy star says he has a mind to talk to Marvel about fixing their plans.

Marvel’s The Inhumans TV series is arriving faster than we realize, and its IMAX debut will set a director to match. As production gears up for a September release, Marvel has officially set feature director Roel Reine to helm the first two big-screen episodes of the adapted property.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has literally dropped the Ghost Rider from Season 4 to focus on its LMD arc, but even if Gabriel Luna’s Robbie Reyes returns, it’s worth wondering what became of the other figure we met, suspected to be Johnny Blaze. Sadly, producers clarify we won’t be seeing him again, as the Rider only takes one host at a time.
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ continues running Season 4’s ‘LMD’ program with “The Patriot,” but does a not-so-surprising reveal about Jeffrey Mace mean even less super-powered hijinks going forward? And what’s this about a ‘Luke Cage’ connection? Find out in our full review of ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s latest!
The notion of Life Model Decoys has floated around Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. fandom from the very beginning, whether as an explanation for Coulson’s return, or that of Patton Oswalt’s curiously identical Koenig brothers. Now that actual “LMD”s are in the mix, Season 4 will bring Patton Oswalt back to finally explain the difference.
Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ awakens Season 4 from sleep mode with 2017 ‘LMD’ premiere “Broken Promises,” but is and admission of robot uprising clichés enough to replace ‘Ghost Rider’? And who’s (unsurprisingly) pulling AIDA’s strings? Find out in our full review of tonight’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ premiere!
It isn’t hard to see at least some writing on the wall for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., given a move to 10:00 P.M. and the announcement of a much higher-profile Marvel series for 2017, but don’t count Coulson and co. out just yet. ABC brass seems surprisingly optimistic about Season 5, claiming they’re “incredibly encouraged” by the series.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may not have had the cash to keep Ghost Rider alight for the whole of Season 4, but will they fare any better with a robot uprising? We’ll find out in the first clip from 2017 return “Broken Promises,” as the Life Model Decoys start fighting for the first part of their namesake.
Apart from bidding Ghost Rider a fiery farewell, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. midseason finale “The Laws of Inferno Dynamics” also gave Jason O’Mara’s Jeffrey Mace a costumed debut as Marvel’s “Patriot.” There’s still something elusively sinister about the new S.H.I.E.L.D. director, for which a new 2017 press release promises we’ll discover a shocking secret behind “The Patriot.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. made a noteworthy gamble in Season 4, to swing a little darker by adapting a new Ghost Rider for live-action. That said, midwinter finale “The Laws of Inferno Dynamics” put a pin in the Rider to bring us a new “LMD” arc, something executive producer Jeffrey Bell admits was partly out of “financial considerations.”
