There were people at the end of the movie in our theater all mad like, "Man, F*** THANOS", throwing popcorn, it was kinda funny.

Assorted news....

1) New trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp:

Fun fact: Cassie Lang will also appear in Avengers 4, but she has been recast with a slightly older actress for that film.

2) Agents of SHIELD has 2 episodes left this season. (Maybe ever; we're still on the bubble there.) After being set up back in episode 3, GRAVITON has finally emerged. (Also, these episodes are concurrent with the events of Infinity War; the fallout of which probably won't affect the show until the very end of the season finale.)

3) Marvel has just registered fresh trademarks for Squirrel Girl & New Warriors, which could be a sign that some kind of New Warriors announcement is coming soon.

4) Marvel Studios is not doing a presentation at SDCC this year, and Feige & the Russos are saying no new info on anything from the film studio until next May. (That has to be an exaggeration, though; they'll have to drop Captain Marvel & Avengers 4 trailers--& the title of the latter--at *some* point before those films open.)

5) New trailer for season 2 of Luke Cage went up pretty much right after I posted this update:


It's been 2 full weekends. You can discuss Infinity War, but PLEASE use spoiler tags.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

....Holy crap, Agents of SHIELD just got renewed. Season 6 will have a reduced episode order (13, down from 22), & if they know what's good for them, they'll hold it off until 2019. [EDIT: ABC has officially announced that season 6 will air in summer 2019.] The season finale of AoS airs this Friday.
That reduced episode count also fits well with rumors of New Warriors going to ABC this fall--it could use SHIELD's timeslot (since it's only planned to have a 10-episode first season).

Also, Kevin Feige says he has plans for introducing Kamala "Ms. Marvel" Khan in a movie, pending the success of Carol "Captain Marvel" Danvers next year.

The SHIELD feels are reals. We'll see most of the team next summer.

Marvel Studios just hired a screenwriter for an Eternals movie. Huh.
Meanwhile, Jake Gyllenhaal has just been cast as Mysterio for next year's Homecoming sequel.

Cloak & Dagger premieres June 7th (less than 3 weeks away)!
Luke Cage season 2 premieres June 22nd!
Ant-Man & the Wasp opens July 6th!

Roseanne was just cancelled, very suddenly, after stuff happened. What does this have to do with the MCU, you ask?
Well, ABC now suddenly needs to fill an unexpected vacancy in their prime-time lineup. Specifically, they need to fill the same Tuesday night time slot that Agents of SHIELD held for its first 3 seasons. And there's a Disney-owned show with 10 episodes already written & a pilot already filmed that's been looking for a venue.
...That's right; what I* am proposing is that NEW WARRIORS be picked up by ABC to fill that time slot!

*By "I", I mean "the cast of New Warriors, following on the heels of a Forbes article saying the same thing.

BTW, Cloak & Dagger premieres next week on Freeform. Early reviews have been good.

Last Thursday, Jeph Loeb, head of Marvel TV, did a Reddit AMA to promote Cloak & Dagger, which yielded a lot of evasive "wait & see" type responses, but we did get a few straight answers out of him:
--They're still trying to get New Warriors picked up.
--All of the TV shows except SHIELD are still set before Infinity War, & will remain such until next year.
--Danny Rand is gonna have a proper vigilante suit in season 2 of Iron Fist.
--Agent Carter could come back if another Disney-owned outlet was interested; Hayley Atwell is officially up for it.
--Inhumans is dead, but Loeb would entertain the thought of bringing those characters back on a different show (probably SHIELD).
--Marvel would be interested in releasing the pilots of Most Wanted & Damage Control, but they would need permission from ABC.
--John Ridley's long-in-development-hell ABC/Marvel project is still allegedly gonna happen.
--There are no plans for a 2nd season of The Defenders, but all of the other Marvel/Netflix shows are open to renewal for as long as Netflix wants them.

Kevin Feige, on the other hand, is playing hardball with us.

FYI, the first 2 episodes of Cloak & Dagger were quite good, & with season 2 of Luke Cage fast approaching, here's a fun clip of Misty & Colleen:


After that, we've got Ant-Man & the Wasp in early July, and then Daredevil season 3 & Runaways season 2 later this year with TBA release dates.

Word on the street is that the official title of Avengers 4 will be revealed at the end of Ant-Man & the Wasp, which opens in 2 weeks.....in America. The rest of y'all gotta wait until the World Cup is over. :p

Also, Luke Cage season 2 drops TOMORROW.
