My articles from the week
So after last week, this week there’s a whole bunch more to talk about. We can start off with the question of the New S.H.I.E.L.D. Director. Here are my thoughts from before the episode and then after the episode. It looks like I was off-base with my initial thoughts. What do you think of the reveal?
Next, expectations and review for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4, Episode 2, “Meet the Boss.” What do you think of the season so far? Remember: no new episode this week. Spend the time watching Luke Cage. Or Civil War.
Speaking of, here are my expectations for Luke Cage. I will have non-spoiler reviews of the 2 halves of the season up today and either tomorrow or Monday.

So Winston Duke has been cast as M’Baku, the Man-Ape for Black Panther. I’m glad they are leaning into the comics instead of pretending they don’t exist. In general that seems to work a lot better than making wholesale changes.
So Luke Cage is out. Have you started it yet? I’m through episode 6 right now.
Simone Missick revealed to The Wrap that Misty Knight will appear in The Defenders.
Cheo Hodari Coker is teasing “Heroes for Hire” for Luke Cage season 2. My prediction is that Luke Cage and Iron Fist will merge for a single shared “season 2” as Heroes for Hire.
According to Hayley Atwell, there is still a possibility for Agent Carter to be resurrected, even if just as a television movie. Personally, I would love to see a movie/TV special that would tie up the loose ends from Agent Carter season 2, see her founding S.H.I.E.L.D., connect the dots with Zodiac, and answer the question of “who’s her husband?” Who’s with me?
We now know at least one writer for The Runaways, which was announced for Hulu over the summer. Tamara Becher wrote on Iron Fist, and announced on Twitter (in a since-deleted Tweet) that she is now starting to write for The Runaways.

Would you like to see Dr. Alan Grant return to the Jurassic Park franchise for Jurassic World 2? Sam Neill actually thinks his character might be dead. Well, that or an accountant in Dayton, OH!
