How the ‘Agents of SHIELD’ cast kept Jeff Ward around

 It is no secret by now that Jeff Shaw has been signed as a regular for season 6 to reprise his role as Jemma and Fitz’s Grandson Deke Shaw. But what wasn’t known was how close he came to being a one and done character…but not as Deke. The cast of the ABC show visited the L.A. Times’ video studio during Comic-Con last week, and Jeff Ward told the story of how he was originally reading for a different character altogether. “I was cast as Virgil. I was supposed to play Virgil, and I got to the table read,” said

Andrew Lincoln Reveals His Reason for Leaving ‘The Walking Dead’

Andrew Lincoln’s announced departure from the hit show The Walking Dead came as a shock to most fans. While there was always a chance that Rick may not make it to the end of the series and Carl may take up the mantle, that concept was quickly scraped the moment they killed off Chandler Riggs’s character. You had to have some member of the Grimes family leading the show for it to still be TWD, right? Season 9 will be Andrew Lincoln’s last season and although we don’t know how the storyline will be without Rick Grimes, we do have

Daredevil Season 3 to “Return to Form” According to Netflix VP

Despite the fact that The Punisher and Elektra received a lot of praise during their breakout in Daredevil season two, the second season of the Matt Murdock centered show was not received as positively as the first season. As much as I love this show, I have to agree with the critics. I loved the Frank Castle storyline, but besides that, Murdock’s arc wasn’t all that entertaining. And what they did with him and Foggy’s friendship at the end was a little unforgivable, but clearly a trend Marvel Netflix likes to partake in i.e. Jessica Jones season two. Although we

I hope to see more Heroes for Hire in the future. I think it’s a great pairing, I think Heroes For Hire and Daughters of the

Are There More Marvel Netflix Spin-Offs on the Rise?

While Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist along with The Defenders were the original deal between Disney and Netflix, there’s a chance we could be getting more spin-off shows. Netflix’s Vice President Cindy Holland spoke at the TCA Summer Tour, expressing the openness for other Marvel shows. We can all attribute this essentially to Jon Bernthal’s performance as Frank Castle in Daredevil season two, launching the need for a separate Punisher series. Holland confirmed, “there’s always an ongoing discussion as to whether we will spin off additional characters.” While it’s highly unlikely that we’ll be getting a Ghost

Could Maggie Ever Forgive Negan on The Walking Dead?

If you’ve been a fan of the AMC hit show The Walking Dead, then you have seen the most shocking season-opening, in season seven, when we were not only given a proper introduction to Negan, but also a gruesome farewell to some characters. The previous season’s finale had left us hanging, not knowing who Negan was going to pick to receive the barbed wired baseball bat of death’s wrath. When it was Abraham chosen to be mercilessly killed by Lucille (the baseball bat), we all had a moment where we thought Glenn was in the clear. In the comics, Glenn
