MCU Writer


Shamus Clancy is a writer from South Philadelphia who fell in love with comics while watching X-Men: The Animated Series in his aunt’s living room as a toddler.

Why I Joined the Direct...

I'm a man who dives headfirst into his passions. Whether it's my love for Philadelphia sports, the emo music scene or the Marvel Universe, I take pride in writing about the things that mean the most to me. In that regard, The Direct is a perfect fit. The internet deserves to have a one-stop site for Marvel Cinematic Universe news and it's my pleasure to be a part of an operation ready to give that to the world. Being a part of a website that's being built from the ground up only heightens my excitment to be a part of something that will be truly special.
