This week was full of exciting rumors and news about future Marvel projects. It makes me excited about the future of the franchise and I hope that all of these things will eventually come to fruition.
HN Entertainment reported that Marvel is considering a movie for the team known as The Ultimates. The comics team is comprised of Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Spectrum, Miss America, and Blue Marvel. Carol Danvers, T’challa, and a young Monica Rambeau (Spectrum) have already been introduced.
I haven’t been into the comics side of Marvel for real long and know nothing about Blue Marvel, but I have read Miss America and would love to see America Chavez on screen. And if we’re getting Kate Bishop in the Hawkeye Disney+ series, it would be a great idea to introduce America either as Kate’s fellow Young Avenger or an Ultimate because I really want to see Kate and America’s friendship onscreen. Please, Marvel Studios, and thank you.
They are also considering movies and TV shows set in alternate timelines. I would love a show centered around Steve and Peggy living out their lives together and working as SHIELD agents. Or maybe a domestic sitcom about Tony and Pepper raising Morgan. A timeline where Tony continues to mentor Peter and trains Harley Keener as his replacement.
The ever-mysterious @RogerWardell has popped up again with an interesting Spider-Man rumor that contradicts what was previously reported.
According to Roger (if that’s his real name!) has tweeted that Deadpool will not show up in Spider-Man 3, but that “desperately wants Tom Hardy’s Venom.”
I would love to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man go up against Venom! I think it’d be awesome! I really hope this pans out! But it will be awhile for the obvious reason that the sequel hasn’t been released yet!
He has also said that Marvel is interested in The Walking Dead’s David Morrissey “and are considering him for multiple roles in Phase 4.
MCU Cosmic shared a rumor that according to a “reliable source” a Power Pack TV show or movie is in “active development.” Power Pack consists of Alex, Julie, Katie, and Jack Power, a group of preteen superheroes. As someone with young cousins who enjoy superheroes, it would be wonderful to have an age-appropriate team of superheroes for younger viewers.
According to DiscussingFilm, there are plans to introduce Sentry into the MCU. Their article on Sentry was an interesting read and they do a far better job talking about the character than I could ever summarize for you here:
During an interview with Variety, Chris Hemsworth had this to say about Thor’s future in the MCU:
But considering how things ended for Thor in Endgame and with continuous rumors about Thor 4, I’m not about it. I’m positive we’ll get more god of Thunder in the future.
