Two new Ant-Man and the Wasp posters have been released courtesy of @MondoNews have been released:

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!)

Marvel President and producer Kevin Feige gave an interview to BET. The entire thing is well worth the read. He talks about Black Panther 2, the Netflix Marvel characters, Ironheart, and more.

You can read it here:

https://www.bet.com/celebrities/exclusives/kevin-feige-marvel-interview-spider-man.html

In an interview with Mashable, he said that the Disney + Marvel shows will do things that “shockingly and unexpectedly change those characters in big ways.” These changes will impact their next big screen MCU appearances.

Several Marvel  stars showed up at ACE Comic Con in Seattle. Here are a few interview bits from their panels.

Zoe Saldana: On the possibility of exploring “bad Gamora”: “It all depends. The technical answer is it all depends on what Marvel and James Gunn desire to do with the Guardians and with Gamora’s fate. I would eventually, there’s a part of me that wants her to go back, find her way back to the Guardians but there’s also a part of me that wants to explore a bad Gamora. I’ve never seen that and she’s, you know, she’s considered the most lethal assassin, the most lethal woman in the galaxy so I would want to see what that wrath looks like also because it would just give me layers to sort of work on. But yeah, I want her to get back to the Guardians.”

Josh Brolin on wanting to play Cable in the MCU: “Wait, Disney bought Fox?!” he joked. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m actually, I’ve been calling them, like, ‘What’s the deal with Cable, man?’ Seriously, 100 percent serious. They’re figuring it out. It’s a big world now, it just got much, much bigger. So who knows?”

Chris Evans on whether the alternate timeline Steve lives with Peggy will be explored: “You know, I’m not sure I can give you those answers. That’s weak as shit, but ask the writers,” Evans said. “Look, I understand there’s a lot of things you can question about the time continuity but if there’s one thing I’ve learned about working with Marvel, they don’t leave stones unturned. They really don’t.”

(Whoa, Cap! Language!)

Deadline reported that some of the Avengers will show up at SDCC for a reunion: As an aside, Deadline is also hearing that some form of an Avengers reunion is in store down at SDCC. Some of the cast members could show up at the AGBO panel Friday, or at the Marvel panel on Saturday night. Consider it one last goodbye.”

SDCC has also released their Saturday schedule. Marvel’s panel will take place at 5:15 P.M. Pacific Time. They will have 90 minutes for their presentation. We will finally have information about what to expect for the beginning of Phase 4.

Sony producer Amy Pascal had this to say about the next Spider-Man MCU movie: “You know, I don’t think that we’re ready to tell anybody yet. But, yes, of course, there are so many stories that you can tell about Peter Parker and Spider-Man. I think the multi-verse and the Spider-Verse has opened up unlimited possibilities for us. I think that the great thing about what Stan [Lee] and Steve [Ditko] did, is that they are characters that can be reinterpreted. It’s 1962, it’s a long time for something to remain fresh, and yet it’s been able to. I think that’s because just like all of the artists who did all of the various spectacular, amazing, ultimate, everything has been able to reinterpret these kinds of classical characters. We’re able to do that, too.”

While promoting Spider-Man: Far From Home, Samuel L. Jackson had this to say about Nick Fury NOT being in the Black Widow movie: “It’s Natasha who was always been my favourite because I recruited her. So far, I’m not in her origin story movie [Laughs]. She’s the person I was closest to in that group.”

Rumor

According to GeeksWorldwide, the characters Cloak and Dagger could crossover with the Runaways in season 3. The third season of Runaways will consist of 10 episodes, slightly shorter than season 2’s order of 13 episodes. There’s currently no word on if Cloak and Dagger will receive a third season.

HN Entertainment reported that Art Director Jim Barr (Star Wars Episode IX) has joined the crew for Black Widow.

HN Entertainment also said that Black Widow will be filming at Pinewood Studios UK and has the working title Blue Bayou. This isn’t the official title. It’s like a codename so that people on the outside won’t know what movie is being filmed.

Collider reported that Ned Benson (The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby) will be rewriting the Black Widow script. A previous draft of the script had been written by Jac Schaeffer.

“Sources say the show will follow Loki as the trickster and shapeshifter pops up throughout human history as unlikely influencer on historical events.“

As of right now, this plot is just speculation. Nothing has been confirmed by Marvel or anyone connected with them.

I am so excited about this!!!!! This series can’t get here soon enough!

During the Singapore stop on the Captain Marvel press tour, Brie Larson said she’d like to see Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel in the sequel. This would be a good way to introduce Kamala into the MCU because in the comics Captain Marvel is Kamala’s role model/mentor.
