@LegendsofSHIELD I enabled the "Legends of S-H-I-E-L-D" skill and Alexa likes repeating "Legends of S-H-I-E-L-D". I use it on my Amazon Tablet that I use for podcasts, how perfect?



ABC aired the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season five episode seventeen “The Honeymoon” on Friday April 13th, 2018 to a live rating of 1.96, slightly down from 2.04 last week with “Inside Voice” but also with the national emergency I’m not surprised.

NEWS [46:28]


Marvel Comics Announces New Fantastic Four Series
Marvel Comics has announced the long-anticipated return of the Fantastic Four! Marvel’s First Family, who hasn’t been together since Secret Wars blew up and then rebuilt the Marvel Universe in 2016, will come together again in August. The creative team of Dan Slott and Sara Pichelli will be responsible for reuniting Mister Fantastic and the Invisible Woman with the Thing and Human Torch.

‘Captain Marvel’ Rounds Out Cast With Clark Gregg & Djimon Hounsou As Production Begins
Marvel announced that cameras are rolling on Captain Marvel today in Los Angeles for a March 8, 2019 release. Agent Coulson aka Clark Gregg is a new addition in the cast along with Lee Pace who will reprise his Guardians of the Galaxy role of Ronan the Accuser, and Djimon Hounsou who will once again portray Korath the Pursuer, a mercenary who works with Ronan. Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace and Jude Law also star. Production will


Ahead Of Avengers Infinity War, We Calculated Who Is The Best Connected Character In The Marvel Cinematic Universe
James O Malley took every link included on a given character page, and count that as a connection. So I downloaded the pages for all 749 MCU characters, and counted all of the links in their pages where they link to other MCU characters. And totalled up how many connections there were in total. Top of the list isn’t actually an Avenger, but the man who brought the team together: Phil Coulson is directly connected to 135 other characters thanks to his appearance in all but one of the phase one films, as well as his starring role on Agents of SHIELD. The most important women on the list aren’t actually in any of the films: It’s Daisy Johnson, otherwise known as Quake or Skye from Agents of SHIELD, and her colleague Melinda May, who after five seasons have encountered dozens of different characters and have been linked to tonnes of important moments. The full list has 108 characters.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Hope Lost International TV Spot Released
A new TV spot dropped for Avengers: Infinity War, and in the new footage, Thor is seen requesting help from his new shipmates the Guardians of the Galaxy. There's also a fresh shot of Doctor Strange working his magic on the battlefield, though it isn't known who he is facing at the moment.


'New Mutants' Cut Warlock Because of Budget
We know the film has been pushed back to August 2019. Recent reports suggest that the film has been ambitious from the get-go, with reports surfacing that the original concept was to include a Marvel character fans have been waiting years to see in a live-action format: Warlock. Reports state that Warlock was featured in early version of the film's script, but the character and his abilities were deemed too expensive early on and future drafts omitted the character. Warlock wasn't the only character teased in versions of the film, with some early incarnations of the movie featuring explorations of the Essex Corporation that was referenced at the end of X-Men: Apocalypse. This led to Jon Hamm playing Mr. Sinister in a post-credits tease, only for Fox to nix this character as well.

Legends S.H.I.E.L.D. - @LegendsofSHIELD - That’s an interesting idea

What’s your opinion on daisy? This season her character is the least interesting (imo) and least featured. This has been the best season lol.

I think she'll come into the spotlight now that she has her powers and is determined to save Coulson and stop the future from happening.
