Deadline reported that Agents of Shield will end after season 7.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Taika Waititi’s live-action anime adaptation Akira has been delayed indefinitely. The reason for the delay being that Taika will be busy writing and directing Thor 4! This will be the first time in MCU history that a core hero will be receiving a fourth installment in their franchise, and I couldn’t imagine a hero more worthy! 😂 (Oh, come on! We all know they’re all worthy of fourquels!)
