After recently re-watching Captain America: Civil War on a cross-country flight, I gotta admit I’m ready for a little bit more screen time for Martin Freeman’s character. Sure, it’s always good to see the Fargo and Sherlock star show up in a fun supporting role, but with Marvel’s penchant for introducing characters at the periphery of films before ramping up their involvement in the franchise, it felt like Freeman’s performance was just a taste of what he could do in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And thanks to recent rumors from the Black Panther set, it looks like I may get my wish sooner rather than later.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
There's nothing fun about the topic, but death is unquestionably a huge part of superhero comics, and this week we're looking at five of the deaths that had the most profound effect on the Marvel Universe.
Despite all we know of Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and their respective casts, The Defenders has kept deadly silent on Sigourney Weaver’s mysterious villain. No longer, as new photos reveal not only said villain’s nom de guerre, but also some Luke Cage crossover, and more.
The already-streaming Marvel Netflix series have given us a taste of the four major superheroes paired up, but we’re nearing time for The Defenders to bring it all home. So it is, that Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones and Iron Fist are all standing tall in a costume-happy first photo!
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!
In the comic-books, she’s been known by several names, including Her, Paragon, Kismet and Ayesha — a supreme being created by a team of scientists who call themselves the Enclave. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, her name is Ayesha, a formidable new villain played by Elizabeth Debicki. We haven’t gotten a peek at her just yet, but thanks to a promo image for an upcoming line of Funko toys, we now have a slight idea of what Debicki’s MCU villain looks like.
We still don’t have the clearest picture of what Marvel’s new animated Spider-Man series will look like, though it appears we’re webs-up this summer. The first official teaser has arrived, and to quote the man himself, “this just got awesome.”
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.
Fans of Daredevil’s Kingpin were undoubtedly disappointed to hear that Vincent D’Onofrio wasn’t likely to menace The Defenders, even as his specter still looms over Hell’s Kitchen. D’Onofrio previously claimed to know when Wilson Fisk might return, but does his 2017 production schedule rule out Daredevil Season 3?
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be back earlier in 2017 than in prior years (we miss you, Agent Carter), but it looks like “Broken Promises” has the “LMD” arc in full swing by the first photos. See for yourself, as Aida wastes little time keeping things from Fitz and Dr. Radcliffe, while a new synopsis teases another mysterious Inhuman.
