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

Murphy’s Multiverse reported that Marvel is starting the casting search for a “deaf female, Native American, First Nations, Indigenous or Latinx, 18 or older, to play the role of “Malia” in an upcoming Disney Plus series set to shoot this Fall.” This casting description could be describing Maria Lopez AKA Echo. Marvel’s casting director, Sarah Finn is looking for an actress who is “independent, athletic and bright.” There’s no word on what project Echo could show up in, though it’s being speculated that she could appear in Hawkeye. Another important thing to note is that Maria Lopez is one of the main deaf characters in Marvel Comics. Having her in the MCU would be a huge win for the Deaf community and disability representation in general!

For a more in-depth description of Echos’ comic book history, you can go here:

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:

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.

‘WandaVision’ Rumors

Marvel News

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

Avengers: Endgame was nominated for 3 Critics Choice Awards including a nomination for Special Effects.

 

MCUCosmic reported that Captain Marvel and Endgame topped Google’s movie searches for 2019.
According to @skylershuler Loki will be filming under the name “ARCHITECT”. And according to Murphy’s Multiverse, Loki will begin filming on February first at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.

It’s official! The Hollywood Reporter announced that Marvel TV is being folded into Marvel Studios which means that Marvel Studios will have full control over television projects moving forward. This includes Helstrom which was planned for Hulu. Unfortunately this means that at least twelve people will lose their jobs.

Murphy’s Multiverse reported that Desmond Chaim and Miki Ishikawa have joined the cast of Falcon and Winter Soldier in currently unknown roles.

During an Instagram Q&A, James Gunn had this to say about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3:

“The script will change because my scripts always keep changing up until the moment I shoot them.But it won’t change according to anything from Endgame, because I already knew what was in that script before I wrote Guardians 3.”

Rumor-Ville

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

This is another rumor brought to you by Murphy’s Multiverse. This information couldn’t be confirmed with a second source, but I thought it’d be interesting to share.

Benedict Cumberbatch is rumored to appear in WandaVision as Dr. Strange. If true, he’d appear in the last episode of the show. It’s rumored that he will be on set for the final week of filming.

While this is just a rumor, it’s one that makes sense as Kevin Feige has stated in previous interviews that WandaVision will tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

There’s also a rumor about Falcon and Winter Soldier. Zola is rumored to appear. Charles Murphy speculates that it could be Jet Zola, Arnim Zola’s daughter, instead of the Arnim Zola of the Captain America franchise.

For more on Jet Zola, you can go here:

MCUCosmic has reported a rumor about who the gay hero in Eternals could be. The original poster on Box Office Theory had this to say about the character in question:

“We see Phastos, with civil costumes, in the company of two childrens and another guy, holding hands.”
