Another week, and more MCU news! Not a ton of new stuff this week, though Greg Berlanti revealed that he's working on another DCTVU series, this time Black Lightning. And not to be outdone, Marvel TV announced yet another in-development series in the form of New Warriors. Put some ketchup on your eggs, and catch-up on your Marvel news!

My articles from the week
This week I reviewed the Marvel Anime movie Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher. Not a terrible movie, but not the best. Have you seen it?
I also concluded my two-parter on potential spinoffs for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Which one(s) do you want to see them make?

So it looks like Jon Favreau is going to be back as Happy Hogan in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
As if on cue: this week my Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoffs article (see above) suggests the New Warriors as a possible IP to develop, and before the article is even published, Marvel TV announces that they are working on New Warriors as a 30- minute comedy series. Not quite the way I would want it (I think I’d prefer a little more serious tone than straight-comedy), but if they do it right it could definitely work. It sounds like it may not be on ABC, so there’s less chance of direct crossovers between New Warriors and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but I still think it would be a good idea to connect the two.
