Cast & Crew Tweets
While filming the new season there’s a certain degree of temptation for cast and crew to post about what is going on behind the scenes but with Marvel being so strict about spoilers it’s mostly just fun like the tweets below.
Ice Bucket Challenge
A number of members of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. cast and crew have participated in the Ice Bucket Challenge to raise awareness of ALS and funds to help research and support for the disorder, in case you missed it, see the videos below. Remember it’s always a good time to support charities that are in need of your help so use this as a prompt to take action now, whether it’s ALS you decide to support or another charity that is close to your heart.
