WandaVision will debut on Disney Plus on January 15, 2021.

Murphy’s Multiverse revealed that WandaVision will receive a Behind the Scenes Gallery series similar to what Star Wars did with The Mandalorian. I hope this means we eventually get a Behind the Scenes look at Loki and Falcon and Winter Soldier as well.

Small Screen has reported that Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man will make a cameo appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Andrew Garfield is in talks to reprise his Spidey as well. If this true, perhaps rumors of a live action Spiderverse movie are true too.

Ryan Reynolds will reportedly be making his MCU debut as Deadpool in the Doctor Strange sequel as well.

Charles Murphy, of Murphy’s Multiverse, has reported that Ms. Marvel has started filming in Atlanta.

As of November 13th, Loki has 4-5 weeks of filming left according to Executive Vice President Victoria Alonso.

Murphy’s Multiverse has reported that Clint Barton will be going deaf during the Hawkeye show.

According to a casting notice, “They are actively looking for a middle-aged Chinese audiologist, who works in a rundown building and is off-the-books.”

This is something that fans have wanted to see happen for a long time. Now it seems like is finally happening.

Chris Pratt has confirmed that he’ll be reprising his role as Star Lord in Thor: Love and Thunder.


Rumors

***********

According to Daniel Richtman, Ryan Reynolds wants to spend more time out of the Deadpool mask in future MCU Projects.

It’s been rumored by Geekosity’s Mikey Sutton that Iron Fist will make his MCU debut in Shang-Chi 2. Finn Jones is unlikely to return as Iron Fist:

Shang-Chi 2 is looking increasingly like the movie for Iron Fist to make his cinematic debut. The chances of Finn Jones reprising the role are dim, though. According to my sources, Kevin Feige was not particularly impressed with Netflix’ Iron Fist. Out of all the Defenders series on Netflix, it certainly had the most polarized response by the fans and the critics weren’t exactly knocked out, either. Limited in budget and lacking in the intense and believable fight choreography to pull it off, Iron Fist simply didn’t fulfill its potential.

That’s all for this week. Thanks for reading!

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Jamie Foxx will reprise his role of Electro in Spider-Man 3. He previously played the character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And according to a now deleted Instagram post, Electro won’t be sporting his icy blue exterior like last time.

Daniel RPK JUST revealed, via his Patreon, the rumor that Kevin Feige is interested in signing Ryan Reynolds to the BIGGEST deal in Marvel history!!!!

Gugu Mbatha-Raw confirmed that filming for Loki has restarted.

“I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF FILMING WHEN THE PANDEMIC HAPPENED, SO I HAD A REAL BREAK, I’VE BEEN PAINTING AND READING. LIKE SO MANY OTHERS, I WAS AT HOME FOR A LONG TIME,” SHE SAID. “NOT TO MAKE LIGHT OF THE SUFFERING GOING ON, BUT IN SOME WAYS, IT HAS BEEN AN OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO GET A FRESH PERSPECTIVE ON THINGS. IT IS DOWNTIME THAT PERHAPS I MIGHT NOT HAVE HAD, AND NOW I’M THANKFUL TO BE BACK TO WORK. IT’S BEEN A JOURNEY FOR EVERYONE, BUT IT’S ALL FOR A GREATER REASON AND THE GREATER GOOD.”

It sounds like Falcon and the Winter Soldier may start filming soon with the cast rumored to return to Atlanta as early as this weekend. Filming could resume as early as next week, or the cast and crew could be required to quarantine for two weeks. Either way, the wheels of Hollywood are starting to turn, which hopefully means a slow return to normal.

An audition tape for the role of America Chavez surfaced this week, but was deleted from the internet soon after discovery. It does appear that America will debut in the Doctor Strange sequel.

Captain Marvel 2 will be filming, at least partly, in the UK.
