Continuing a longstanding (well, three seasons) arrangement, it looks like Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD will link into the latest Marvel movie release with season 4 – which starts tomorrow night.

Executive producers Maurissa Tancharoen and Jed Whedon have been pointing out that the inclusion of Ghost Rider in the new season links into the magical side of the MCU – and therefore, it links to Doctor Strange: “Our ties are at times very direct and at times are more thematic. The tie this year will feel more of a reflection of the movie, less an interweaving plot. As that movie hits the world, it comes at the right time in our show, and you will see some of those same ideas being explored.”

They also pointed out that there will be issues raised in SHIELD that could also bleed into Strange: “Doctor Strange will introduce some new ideas, but we’re starting to lay the first brick in the yellow brick road to that. We want to slowly play with the morality of building these things, whether or not we even should and the scientific questions that come along with it. [That’s] the first step that we explore before we inevitably get into other things.”

We still don’t buy that the TV Universe and the Cinematic Universes are tied together as much as Marvel want you to believe, but we would love to be proved wrong…

Two new Ghost Rider TV Spots ahead of tomorrow night’s episode:

And, since it’s all connected, here’s a new Dr Strange featurette:

Next, we head to Netflix for some cool new posters from Luke Cage featuring Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple and Simone Missick as Misty Knight.



Ok, next up, here’s some images of Thor, Odin and Loki in their new outfits from Thor: Raganrok courtsy of Instgram

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
