Captain Marvel Will Bring Agent Coulson Back In MCU Movies

It’s been over five years since Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) was sen in a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Thanks to Captain Marvel, though, that’s about to change. During the course of Marvel’s Avengers, the SHIELD operative was seemingly killed. That didn’t last long though, as Coulson was resurrected and continued his place in the MCU on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD. As far as fans know, though, the Avengers themselves have no idea he’s alive.

Now, Coulson’s return to the big screen comes with one major wrinkle. Marvel Studios has announced that principal photography on Captain Marvel is underway, with Gregg’s name listed among the cast. The press release reads, “The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.” The release was accompanied by the photo below.

At this point, it remains unlikely that Coulson will be reunited with his favorite superheroes. Captain Marvel is set in the 1990s, long before Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) assembled the team of Avengers. Jackson will also appear in the film, marking his first time in the MCU since 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

While it will be the younger versions of both Coulson and Fury in the movie, it’ll be exciting to see them back in MCU movies nonetheless. Hopefully, the film gives Coulson the chance to gush about his Captain America fandom to Danvers (Brie Larson).

Captain Marvel also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Jude Law, and Gemma Chan. Notably, both Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou, who starred in Guardians of the Galaxy as Ronan the Accuser and Korath respectively, are also listed among the movie’s cast. Given that both are members of the Kree alien race and the film is set during a war between the Kree and the Skrulls, their inclusion is an exciting addition.

Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019.

Scientists May Just Have Discovered a New Human Organ

A chance discovery has revealed what scientists could deem a new human organ.

According to New Scientist, routine endoscopies (procedures involving looking inside the body) studying bile duct tissue revealed unusual fluid channels running throughout the body, seemingly as part of a network.

This research was passed onto NYU School of Medicine Pathologist Neil Theise, who conducted further study and found the same fluid channels under the skin of his nose.

The New ‘World War Hulk’ Lives Up To Its Name

The Incredible Hulk #714 kicks off a storyline called World War Hulk II, which also happens to be writer Greg Pak’s swan song on the series. This new story arc is only very loosely connected to the original World War Hulk crossover from 2007. However, that’s very much in this book’s favor. This opening chapter suggests that World War Hulk II will be able to capitalize on its premise in a way the original never managed.

Sea Of Thieves Dev Backtracks From Controversial Death Cost Feature

Sea of Thieves developer Rare has scrapped plans for a proposed change, after harsh feedback from the community and a realization that their messaging around it was confusing. The “Death Cost” was included as a coming update in a set of release notes, suggesting that the Captain of the Ferry of the Damned would charge a small fee for each death.

The community was not pleased and let Rare know, loudly enough that producer Joe Neate issued a mea culpa and let fans know the Death Cost won’t be coming after all.

The release notes have been updated as well. It’s careful to note that the plan was never to charge players for PvP deaths, since it would have such an impact on player experience. But it also echoed Neate’s point that the team fumbled the messaging.

“We understand that this addition to the release notes was a little confusing, and in the future we will ensure that any future updates we discuss give you a better understanding of how and why we’re implementing it,” the notes read. “Sea of Thieves is constantly evolving, and any feature we will test, monitor data and listen to your feedback to ensure we’re making the right decisions.”

That spirit of constant evolution is needed, as we’ve found it fun but in need of more content so far. The team has shown themselves to be pretty nimble, issuing a comedic “day one patch” just for kicks.
