Geeks Worldwide reported that Elizabeth Hurley has joined the season 3 cast of Runaways. She will be playing sorceress Morgan le Fay.

During an appearance at Denver’s Pop Culture Con, Benedict Wong was asked about Dr. Strange 2. He said filming “may be happening some time next year.” He also confirmed the sequel has a writer. (via  LRM Online) DiscussingFilm backed this up by reporting that filming would begin in January 2020.

The Digital Bits announced that the Blu-ray release date for Endgame is August 20th.

 

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.

Rumors Of the Marvelous Kind

This week was full of exciting rumors and news about future Marvel projects.  It makes me excited about the future of the franchise and I hope that all of these things will eventually come to fruition.

 

Rumors

*********

HN Entertainment reported that Marvel is considering a movie for the team known as The Ultimates. The comics team is comprised of Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Spectrum, Miss America, and Blue Marvel. Carol Danvers, T’challa, and a young Monica Rambeau (Spectrum) have already been introduced.

I haven’t been into the comics side of Marvel for real long and know nothing about Blue Marvel, but I have read Miss America and would love to see America Chavez on screen. And if we’re getting Kate Bishop in the Hawkeye Disney+ series, it would be a great idea to introduce America either as Kate’s fellow Young Avenger or an Ultimate because I really want to see Kate and America’s friendship onscreen. Please, Marvel Studios, and thank you.

They are also considering movies and TV shows set in alternate timelines. I would love a show centered around Steve and Peggy living out their lives together and working as SHIELD agents. Or maybe a domestic sitcom about Tony and Pepper raising Morgan. A timeline where Tony continues to mentor Peter and trains Harley Keener as his replacement.

 

The ever-mysterious @RogerWardell has popped up again with an interesting Spider-Man rumor that contradicts what was previously reported.

According to Roger (if that’s his real name!) has tweeted that Deadpool will not show up in Spider-Man 3, but that “desperately wants Tom Hardy’s Venom.”

I would love to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man go up against Venom! I think it’d be awesome! I really hope this pans out! But it will be awhile for the obvious reason that the sequel hasn’t been released yet!

He has also said that Marvel is interested in The Walking Dead’s David Morrissey “and are considering him for multiple roles in Phase 4.

 

MCU Cosmic shared a rumor that according to a “reliable source” a Power Pack TV show or movie is in “active development.” Power Pack consists of Alex, Julie, Katie, and Jack Power, a group of preteen superheroes. As someone with young cousins who enjoy superheroes, it would be wonderful to have an age-appropriate team of superheroes for younger viewers.

According to DiscussingFilm, there are plans to introduce Sentry into the MCU. Their article on Sentry was an interesting read and they do a far better job talking about the character than I could ever summarize for you here:

During an interview with Variety, Chris Hemsworth had this to say about Thor’s future in the MCU:

But considering how things ended for Thor in Endgame and with continuous rumors about Thor 4, I’m not about it. I’m positive we’ll get more god of Thunder in the future.

A couple new International posters for Spider-Man: Far From Home have been released.

Charles Murphy from Murphy’s Law podcast revealed that Shang-Chi will begin filming in Australia in the fall and that casting is now underway.

Geeks Worldwide reported two character breakdowns. One is for a “wise, old statesman,” who is “the leader of his people.” They’re looking for an an Asian actor between 40-60 years of age.

The second description is “one of the leader’s most skilled warriors.” They’re looking for an Asian actress in her thirties or forties for the role. Here’s who they speculate who the character could be in regards to Shang-Chi:0D442E0A-AB18-45D9-872C-9C6525BF90C4
