HIGHLIGHT STORY OF THE WEEK

Disney And Fox Shareholders Give Historic Merger Votes Of Approval – Update
https://deadline.com/2018/07/disney-fox-shareholders-give-historic-merger-vote-of-approval-1202434925/
Disney and 21st Century Fox shareholders overwhelmingly approved the merger first proposed last December.The pending $71.3 billion deal still has to pass through some regulatory hoops, but one of the most consequential reviews was completed a few weeks ago, when the Department of Justice reached a settlement with Disney. Provided that Fox’s collection of regional sports networks is divested, the antitrust division of the DOJ — the same outfit that continues to target AT&T’s Time Warner merger — said the Disney-Fox deal can proceed.

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

Agents of SHIELD star Clark Gregg is directing the season opener, which is titled “Missing Pieces.”

The AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Cast Fought To Have Jeff Ward Play Deke, Saving The Star From Being Killed Off
https://www.comicbookmovie.com/tv/marvel/agents_of_shield/the-agents-of-shield-cast-fought-to-have-jeff-ward-play-deke-saving-the-star-from-being-killed-off-a162474
During a recent interview with the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Ward revealed that he was originally set to play Virgil, a character that gets killed off in the first episode of Season 5. He even took part in a table read as Virgil, which prompted his castmates to take action. At the end of the table read, the cast went to their bosses and said, ‘He’s got to be Deke, he’s so amazing, we can’t lose him after one episode.’

NETFLIX SERIES

IRON FIST Season 2: Bloody New Trailer Puts Danny Rand In His Classic Comic Book Costume
https://www.comicbookmovie.com/tv/marvel/iron_fist/iron-fist-season-2-bloody-new-trailer-puts-danny-rand-in-his-classic-comic-book-costume-a162530
The trailer depicts a flashback to a bloody battle between Danny Rand and Davos as they battle for the right to face Shou-Lao the Undying. Both of them are decked out in a classic Iron Fist costume as well (it looks great).

AVENGERS

The GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Check Their Voicemail In A New Deleted Scene From AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
https://www.comicbookmovie.com/avengers/avengers_infinity_war/the-guardians-of-the-galaxy-check-their-voicemail-in-a-new-deleted-scene-from-avengers-infinity-war-a162509
The deleted scene takes place shortly after the Guardians lost Gamora (Zoe Saldana) to Thanos (Josh Brolin) on Knowhere as Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista), and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) try to determine their next move. It is a little too light-hearted in nature, so it makes sense why the scene was ultimately cut, but it's still interesting little moment between the three characters and helps explain how they linked up with Nebula on Titan.

Watch Josh Brolin Become Thanos in This Exclusive Behind-the-Scenes Avengers: Infinity War Clip
https://io9.gizmodo.com/watch-josh-brolin-become-thanos-in-this-exclusive-behin-1827872928
io9 is excited to debut this exclusive behind the scenes clip from the home release, which will premiere digitally on July 31 and on Blu-ray August 14. Here, we get to see Brolin in his full performance capture suit, acting as Thanos, see just how much he was on set, and how much his performance comes through in the character.

AWWWWWW / COOL STUFF

Thanos Sings Hamilton in 'Avengers: Infinity War' Parody
http://comicbook.com/marvel/2018/07/28/avengers-infinity-war-thanos-hamilton-musical-parody/
There are those who might call Thanos a revolutionary. After all, his devastating snap in Avengers: Infinity War was meant to change the universe for the "better". Now, a fan is reimagining the Mad Titan in the style of a real revolutionary -- Alexander Hamilton -- with "Thanilton: An Avengers Musical". In the hilarious animated video from And You Films on YouTube, Thanos sings his own version of "My Shot" from Hamilton: The Musical.
