Jessica Jones Gets Another Round Agent Coulson Returns More MCU News

first_imgStay on target He doesn’t give us a whole lot to work with. Just his face next to Nick Fury’s nameplate. That’s enough to get us excited to see Coulson again. As great as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has become, it’s just not the same as seeing Coulson in the movies, palling around with Marvel’s biggest heroes. That includes Nick Fury. Those two haven’t appeared together since the season one finale of S.H.I.E.L.D., which is still one of my favorite episodes. It was so cool watching them take on embedded Hydra agents mutated by Kree blood. I can’t wait to see them in action together again in a proper MCU movie.Paul Bettany as Vision in Avengers: Infinity War (Photo via Marvel Studios)Of course, before any of that, we still have Avengers: Infinity War coming up in just two weeks. We’re certainly excited for it, and a whole bunch of other people are too. By all accounts, this is going to be the biggest Marvel movie made yet. Not just in terms of scope or the number of superheroes in it. Fandango managing editor Erik Davis told Variety that Infinity War is pre-selling more tickets than the last seven MCU movies combined. That’s a wild amount of money this movie has already made before anyone has even seen it yet.And the last seven Marvel movies have been pretty successful themselves. Black Panther is currently the highest-grossing movie Marvel has ever made. Pre-sale tickets for that movie were so hard to find, Lupita Nyong’o had trouble getting opening night tickets, and she’s in the movie. Thor: Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Captain America: Civil War also made serious bank. And Avengers: Infinity War is on track to outpace all of those movies combined.“Infinity War’ has built up such unprecedented anticipation that it’s pacing to break records, the likes of which we have never seen before for a superhero movie,” Davis said in the interview. “Moviegoers are rushing to guarantee their seats in advance for what is sure to be one of the most talked-about movies of the decade.” He’s not wrong about that.Peter Dinklage (Credit: Macall B. Polay/HBO)We’ve been hearing about this movie for so long now; you almost have to wonder what surprises Avengers: Infinity War has in store for us. And the answer is still “all of them.” Disney and Marvel Studios have gone to great lengths to make sure as few people know about what’s going to happen in this movie as possible. Now, they’re teasing another secret. Who is Peter Dinklage going to play?That’s right, Tyrion Lannister is in Infinity War too, and the directors are being very coy about who exactly he’ll be in the movie. All we really know about it is it’ll be a significant part that will feature in Avengers 4 as well. That’s not a lot to go on. During an interview with Joe.ie, they remained very tight-lipped about any details we didn’t already know.All they said about Dinklage’s role: “It may take you a beat or two, but you’ll certainly recognize him.” That was Joe Russo, with Anthony adding that that’s all they can say. What makes this even harder is in a Marvel movie, Dinklage can be playing almost anyone. In Game of Thrones, you knew exactly which character he was going to be. That’s not the case here. Especially with the Joe Russo’s admission that it’d take us a beat or two to recognize Dinklage. That means he’ll probably be in makeup or some form of CGI. Not very helpful at all. Fortunately, we don’t have much longer to wait to find out. We can all look closely for Dinklage to show up in Avengers: Infinity War on April 27. James Gunn Once Again Directing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’Dark Phoenix Trailer Released & More Marvel Movie News Great news for fans of private investigators and unhealthy drinking habits. Just over a month after the second season of Jessica Jones dropped onto Netflix, the show would come back for a third, the streaming service announced. While the second season never quite reached the highs of the first, and suffered from plodding pacing at times, it became a fantastic, emotionally affecting season of superhero TV. A great character can make up for a lot of shortcomings in the story department, and Jessica Jones had two. We watched Jessica deal with the fallout of her encounter with Killgrave and the trauma in her past. We also got to see Trish Walker slowly become Hellcat.That alone makes season three a must for this show. You can’t give us a whole season of turning these friends into rivals and not give us the fight. Jessica Jones has always been more than that. It’s an exploration of trauma and abuse. It’s a smart, stylish noir mystery. All centered around a heavy-drinking woman with super strength. It’s only been a month and a half since the last new Jessica Jones, and I already want more. Though my liver could probably use a break. I know Jessica’s drinking is presented as a problem, but the show makes all the whiskey look so good.That’s not the only TV news to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe today, though. Freeform put out a new trailer for their upcoming series, Cloak and Dagger. This one has more in common with Hulu’s Runaways than it does Jessica Jones. It stars two teenagers in New Orleans with very different, but somehow linked superpowers. As they begin seeing each other, they realize their powers become stronger when they’re together. So far, the show looks pretty cool.I love the light and dark effects, and it looks like a very good teenage superhero shows. If the past year of Riverdale and Runaways have taught me anything, it’s that I secretly love teen dramas. But only if they’re based on comic books. The doomed romance angle of this show could be really interesting. Despite a similar tone and age group to Runaways, there are no plans for any crossovers yet. The two shows are an entire country apart. But certain MCU elements will show up. The Roxxon Corporation features heavily, for example. The 10-episode first season of Cloak and Dagger premieres on June 7.Over on the movie side of the MCU, one character is preparing to make the jump back from TV to the big screen. Clark Gregg hasn’t been seen in a Marvel movie since The Avengers, when Loki stabbed Agent Coulson through the back. He’s since only appeared in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., where we learned Coulson underwent a hellish procedure to keep him alive. No one in the movies outside of Nick Fury knows that, though. As far as they’re concerned, he’s still dead. Fortunately for him, Captain Marvel takes place in the past. He’s not dead yet, and as evidenced by Clark Gregg’s Instagram post, he’s in a Marvel movie again. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more
