First Look At Marvel Shows Revealed!

Marvel News

***************

Last week’s Super Bowl included a few treats for Marvel fans. We got a Black Widow TV Spot and a first look at the three Disney Plus shows coming out soon. We knew we were getting a peek at footage from Falcon and Winter Soldier and WandaVision, but I don’t think anyone was expecting a few seconds of Loki footage at the end! You can watch both TV spots below:

Black Widow:

Disney Plus:

MCU Cosmic noticed several things in the above spot:

1. Loki is wearing a uniform with the letters TVA on it. These letters stand for Time Variance Authority. According to the site,  “That’s an organization who monitors alternate timelines in the Multiverse and will “prune” those they deem to dangerous to exist.”

So it looks like Loki got in a butt-load of trouble with the Time Variance  and is now serving time for his crimes.

2. The several seconds of WandaVision confirmed several rumors that were previously reported:

1. Wanda and Visions twins, Billy and Tommy, will be in the series.

2. They will grow up fast over a short time period.

3. The show will be influenced by sitcoms from the 50s through the 90s.

Several Black Widow character posters and the official synopsis  were also released:

“In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.”
Another poster for New Mutants has been released:

MCU Cosmic reported that Clint Barton’s brother Barney AKA the antihero Trickshot and the Tracksuit Draculas AKA the Tracksuit Mafia. These characters appear in the Matt Fraction Hawkeye comics.
I’ve read a bunch of those and really enjoyed them. I know it’s a small complaint, but the Tracksuit Mafia overused the word, “Bro, ” which got annoying after a while. So maybe spice up their dialogue by throwing in a few “Dudes” to mix it up! 😂
Gemma Chan confirmed via Instagram that Eternals has finished filming.
Disney had their earnings call this week. During the call, Bob Iger confirmed/announced  a couple of things.
1. Falcon and Winter Soldier will stream in August. WandaVision was confirmed for December.
2. There are 7 Disney Plus Marvel  shows in various stages of development.

Variety
reported that Sam Raimi is “in talks” with Marvel about directing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Former director Scott Derrickson tweeted his support of the news:

Variety also stated that Rachel McAdams will not be returning as Doctor Christine Palmer in the sequel.
The Illuminerdi reported that Kraven the Hunter could be showing up in the MCU soon.  For more information, check out their article:
They also reported that Christian Bale will be playing an alien villain in Thor: Love and Thunder. He hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet, but is said to have a lead role in the movie. His character isn’t known but is described by Marvel Studios as “otherworldly.”
MCU Cosmic reported that Marvel is still looking for their Kate Bishop. Their first choice is Hailee Steinfeld. But because of potential scheduling conflicts with Hawkeye and her Apple TV+ series Dickensian, they need to have a second option just in case their first doesn’t work out.
The same source has also reported that Marvel wants to use Crossbones in the future and are discussing how they can do that. Crossbones first appeared in and  died in Captain America: Civil War. It’s kinda hard to use a character that’s dead! But as Marvel and DC have proven, nothing is impossible in the realm of comic book cinema.

A BTS look at Pixar’s Onward has been released:
THR reported that Chris Pratt will be starring in a new conspiracy  thriller TV series The Terminal List.
Here’s the synopsis:
“The Terminal List follows Reece (Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. As he returns home with conflicting memories of the event and questions about culpability, new evidence comes to light when he discovers dark forces working against him.”
The show doesn’t have a network yet. It’s also a potential multiple season show, not a limited series.
Deadline reported that Tom Hiddleston will star in a new Political Thriller Netflix series White Stork. The show will have ten episodes, and there’s no word on when it’ll premiere. Here’s the synopsis:
 “When James Cooper (Hiddleston) is selected to run for a seat in parliament, Asher Millan is sent to vet him for primetime. But she quickly uncovers potentially damaging secrets buried deep in James’ past. Secrets that will threaten to blow everything apart – his career, his marriage, even the powerful people backing his campaign.”
During Lionsgate’s earnings call, it was announced that Tom Holland’s movie Chaos Walking will be released in theaters on January 22, 2021.
The first trailer for Saw: Spiral starring Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson has been released:

We’re Getting a Loki Series, And That’s No Trick!

Welcome, everyone to the first News Roundup for My Marvelous Escape! My name is Captain Stark and I have some very exciting news for you!

     MCU Cosmic  broke the news earlier today that Disney President Bob Iger has confirmed that we will be getting a series on Disney’s streaming service (Disney +) centered around everyone’s favorite Trickster, Loki. The cherry on top of the sundae is that Tom Hiddleston will be returning to play the god of Mischief. There’s currently no information on what the show will be about, or when it will premiere, but the sun is beginning to shine again for our favorite character.

Infinity War director Joe Russo had an Instagram Q&A at his bar Duello today, and was kind enough to answer some questions on the still untitled Avengers 4. Here’s the information we know so far:

  1. Avengers 4 “will have the highest [stakes] of any of the films to date, without question.”
  2. The runtime is 3 hours long right now. Mr Russo said, “We’ll see if that holds.”
  3. They are only halfway through the editing process and are working on effects including beginning work on VFX shots.
  4. The Russo Brothers would love to work with Marvel again and would be “glad” to work with Marvel in the future.
  5. We “may or may not see” an Avengers 4 trailer before 2019.

I love the little bit of info we’re getting as well as frustrated over the lack of information about Avengers 4. It scares me about the movie having higher stakes. How can things possibly get worse after the devastation of Infinity War?! I guess we’ll find out when Avengers 4 is released in theatres on May 3, 2019.

I’m also very excited about Loki getting his own series. I would love for them to introduce Verity from the Loki, Agent of Asgard comics. What would you like to see included in a series like this? Let me know in the comments below. I’d also like your thoughts on making the News Roundup a regular part of the page. Would you like us to share the latest from Marvel with you?Thank you for being a part of our community. I love you all! ❤ ❤ ❤

Over and Out,

Captain Stark.
