Rumors

********

According to MCU Cosmic, Keanu Reeves is in talks for a role in The Eternals. Negotiations are in the early stages, and the character he’s up for is currently unknown. If Marvel has its way, there’s a good chance that the John Wick star could be part of the MCU.

Another rumor from MCU Cosmic is that Blade could be getting his own show on Hulu. If this turns out to be true, Blade would be another show in the lineup that already has Helstrom, Ghost Rider, and Glyph. This could also mean that Blade would join the Spirits of Vengeance team-up show featuring the aforementioned characters.

 

Geeks Worldwide reported a very interesting rumor: The Fantastic Four will be joining the MCU in 2022. Jeremy Conrad from MCU Cosmic was able to back up their report with two unnamed sources. The rumors from Geeks Worldwide also include that the film will take place in the 60s, and that a pitch has been made by the director of both Ant-Man films, Peyton Reed.

BUT THERE’S MORE!!!

The mysterious Roger Wardell tweeted that the Fantastic Four rumors are not true. He says that Marvel “has enough on their plate already.”

The reason that people are quick to believe Wardell is because back in December he tweeted a bunch of spoilers for Endgame including Fat Thor, Stan Lee’s final cameo at a car show in the 70’s, and Captain America saying, “Hail, Hydra!” Since these spoilers were correct, he has gained a great deal of credibility among fans.

Since then, other rumors have come from Wardell’s account including rumors about Thunderbolts, The Black Knight, Guardians 3, and more. None of the rumors past Endgame has come to fruition just yet, and the Twitter account with no profile picture could turn out to be a one-hit wonder in the end.

Both MCU Cosmic and Geeks Worldwide have been reliable sources for me in the past so only God knows which rumors will turn out to be true.

Hopefully, we’ll be getting some answers from Kevin Feige at SDCC in July about the future of the MCU. Until then, the best thing any of us can do is guess.
