Deaf Clint, Two Spideys, WandaVision Oh, My!

Entertainment Weekly released their latest magazine where upcoming Disney Plus show, WandaVision takes center stage on the cover.

Four new gorgeous black and white stills were also released.

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!

Transgender Superhero Rumors

MCU News

*********

In an interview with EW, Kumail Nanjiani said that Eternals, “It’s the most epic of all the Marvel movies. And it spans thousands of years.”

Richard Madden posted this photo to his Insta-story and confirmed that Eternals has completed filming:

Tom Hiddleston posted a video of him doing stunt prep for the Loki series. As you can imagine, this video blew up on ‘Loki Stan’ twitter:

An interesting rumor resurfaced this week about the Loki series. According to The Illuminerdi, Marvel is looking to cast a transgender actress for the role of their first major trans superhero Sera. Geek Worldwide were the first to break the rumor months ago. It was speculated that she’d make her first appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder, but now The Illuminerdi has said that Sera is set to appear in the first season of Loki. .

“The role is being described as a major supporting character set to appear not only on the series but possibly in future MCU movies as well.”

So an appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder doesn’t sound like it’s out of the question.

For more on who Sera is, click here:

Loki Set To Debut Sera, Marvel’s First Trans Character, In Season One: EXCLUSIVE

MCU Exchange has speculated that this could mean the introduction of Sera’s wife and Thor and Loki’s half-sister Angela. Plus they could be planning to do something with the Tenth Realm AKA Heven  in the MCU.

Murphy’s Multiverse has reported a rumor about who could potentially be playing Sera, but at this point, it’s merely speculation. The best I can tell you is the actress’s name is Anjelica Ross. She may or may not be playing Sera. The role is currently unknown. Marvel was looking for male actors as well as female actors for this role. Since Sera is a trans-female, and they were looking at guys as well, they could be casting for a completely different role altogether.

Charles does a far better job of explaining this rumor better than I could ever sum up. Here’s his article for a better explanation:

What I Heard This Week: ‘LOKI’

 

 

Comicbook.com reported that Owen Wilson has been cast in a “key role”, but it’s currently unknown who he’ll be playing.

 

MCU Cosmic reported that Marvel plans to introduce another Valkyrie, Mist, in the near future.

This is MY speculation AKA not based in factual reporting!

What if Mist turns out to be the love interest for Valkyrie in Thor: Love and Thunder? It’ll be interesting to come back later and see if I was close.

 

Another interesting bit from the same source is that a character named Ripper of the Hellbent will debut in the Moon Knight Disney+ series.

For more information on the character, here’s a link to the article:

Ripper of The Hellbent May Appear in Moon Knight

Murphy’s Multiverse reported that Emily Blunt met with Marvel to discuss a role in an upcoming film.

The Illuminerdi were able to confirm that Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) will return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Murphy’s Multiverse reported that Marvel is still looking for their Ms. Marvel. There are currently no frontrunners for the role.

The same source also reported that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will introduce MI-6 agents Leiko Wu, Clive Reston, and Black Jack Tarr. For more information, you can go here:

EXCLUSIVE: ‘SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS’ Confirmed to Introduce MI-6 Characters Leiko Wu, Clive Reston and Black Jack Tarr

MCU Cosmic reported that Rick Jones, human sidekick to several of the Avengers will be coming to the MCU. Where or when he’ll show up is not known.

The Illuminerdi has reported that Clea will make her debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

1. They are looking for an actress somewhere in the 20s-40s age range.

2. The actress they cast needs to have “leading lady qualities.”

 

MCU Cosmic has reported that different versions of already established characters will appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Deadline reported Kevin Feige is in early talks with ABC about doing another show after Agents of Shield ends.

While at the TCAs, ABC Entertainment president Karey Burke had this to say about it:

“We love our partners at Marvel and we’re sad to see [Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D] go, it’s been a big part of our history. We’re looking forward to working with Kevin Feige and we’re at the very beginning of conversations with him now about what a Marvel and ABC show might look like. Right now, Marvel’s focus has been on Disney+, as it should be.”

Variety reported that Scott Derrickson, Director of Doctor Strange, unfortunately won’t be returning to direct Doctor  Strange in the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences.” Marvel released this statement:

MCUCosmic reported that Morbius will reference MCU’s Spider-Man. There’s also been rumors that J. Jonah Jameson will make an appearance.

In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Victoria Alonso has said that Marvel won’t use CGI to resurrect dead actors.

I think this is a good plan because I don’t think a computer could ever or replace an actual person!

Collider reported that Christian Bale is “in talks” to star in Thor: Love and Thunder in an unknown role.

Bat-Man invading the MCU. Could this end the Marvel vs. DC debate and unite the fandoms. Or will it only make the devision between fandoms worse? Only time will tell.

Murphy’s Multiverse reported that Marvel is looking for British child actors, one boy and one girl. Charles speculates that they could be looking for an actor to play Kid Loki. Here are the casting descriptions:

Kevin Feige recently gave a talk at the New York Film Academy and shared a couple of things about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness:

A character they’ve always wanted to use will be introduced:

“The next Doctor Strange film for instance features some new MCU characters that will be making their debut in that movie that you wouldn’t expect or won’t guess who it is, but we found a cool way to make it work.

Because we needed a particular, we wanted to make a particular type of movie there, and there was a character we always wanted to do something with who we think will fit really well there.”

He also clarified what horror means in terms of this particular movie:

“I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a horror film, but it is as Scott Derrickson, or director, pitched it; it is, it’ll be a big MCU film with scary sequences in it. The way when I was a kid in the 80s Spielberg did an amazing job, I mean there are horrifying sequences in Raiders that I would sit there as a little kid and do this when their faces melted, or Temple of Doom or course, or Gremlins, or Poltergeist.

These are the movies that invented the PG-13 rating, by the way. They were PG and then they were like we need another, but that’s fun, it’s fun to be scared in that way and not a you know horrific torturous way, but in a way that’s legitimately scary. Scott Derrickson is quite good at that, but scary in the service of an exhilarating emotion.”

 

According to both Jeremy Conrad and Charles Murphy Ms. Marvel has been cast. Now it’s just a matter of waiting for the official announcement.

The first trailer for The New Mutants comes out tomorrow. It will be rated PG-13.

Deadline reported that Spider-Man 3 will film this summer.
