During an interview with MTV News, Anthony Mackie said that he has had his first fitting for his Captain America costume that he’ll be wearing in Falcon and Winter Soldier.

Daniel Bruhl posted two pictures of himself as Baron Zemo Falcon and Winter Soldier on his Instagram:

 

During an interview with MTV, Kevin Feige had this to say about the SDCC, “We debated what we should announce today, should we announce 4 and 5? We’ve planned them out, we’ve got five years down the road, and I was like, I think eleven projects in two years is plenty.”

Only ten projects were announced leading people to speculate that project eleven will be a currently unannounced Spider-Man 3. Marvel doesn’t have the right to announce Spider-Man projects only Sony can do that. With Spider-Man: Far From Home having just crossed a billion dollars at the worldwide box office, I wouldn’t be surprised if Sony announced sequel plans soon.

On the future of the Avengers and if there will be another Avengers movie: “Yes. And it will be a very different team from than we’ve seen before. That’s what Endgame was all about. It will be a very different incarnation of the team with some people you’ve already met and some people you haven’t met yet.”

In an interview with Variety, Kevin had this to say about the inclusion of the Fantastic Four in the MCU: “All of that is spoilers, but I’m extremely excited about those characters and about bringing Marvel’s first family up sort of to the platform and the level that they deserve.”

During an interview with Collider, he confirmed Valkyrie’s bisexuality saying,“Yes that’s the case, and will be the case not just with [Valkyrie] but with other characters in some of the movies we talked about today.”

He also confirmed LGBT representation in Eternals as well.

In an interview with IGN, he had this to say about the X-Men: “Whatever we do will be quite different than what’s been done before.”

Kevin on the bigger plan for Phase 4:“There is always a bigger vision, and it sort of only comes into view for others as it all solidifies. So ask me again at the end of 2021. But I will say, post-Endgame, we were always about the new. We were always about doing what we always tried to do in Phase One, Two and Three, which is do a film of a character you already know, like Black Widow, in a way that you don’t expect. We wanted to do our big ensemble like we did in Phase Two with Guardians, and that’s what Eternalsis. We want to bring in new characters like Shang-Chi, who’s awesome… New versions for Dr. Strange, Thor continuing to surprise and change and evolve.”

Kevin on what happened to get Natalie Portman back for Thor 4: “One of the ideas, and perhaps the biggest, was the idea of Jane. We set Natalie and Taika up and in one meeting she agreed to do it.”

(No Source)

GeeksWorldwide reported that Hulu’s Runaways season 3 will premiere on December 13th and will consist of 10 episodes.

Scarlett Johansson talked about the violence we can expect to see in Black Widow: “Oh, yeah. There’s a lot of fighting in this movie. Like, so much fighting. Much more fighting than I think has ever… I think other producers that come onto the set, they’re like, ‘There’s more fighting in this than any other Marvel movie we’ve ever made.’ It’s just brutal. I think because it’s based in reality, all the action is based in reality and it’s a lot of hand-to-hand combat. It’s painful.”

Her answer when asked if Hawkeye shows up in Black Widow: “That’s when you see the tranq gun come out. My lips are sealed. You got to wait and see.”

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has said that Thor 4 is set after Guardians 3.

Thor 4 will start filming in Australia in August 2020.

Kat Dennings spoke with Comicbook.com about whether she would return as Darcy in Thor: Love and Thunder: “No one has talked to me and even if they had, I definitely couldn’t say anything about it. Oh my God, I am such a huge fan of his, What We Do in the Shadows, one my favorite movies ever. So it would be an honor to work with him, but I have no info. None.”

The NY Post reported that Stan Lee will have a street in NYC named after him. All that is left is for the mayor to sign on the dotted line to make it official.

In an interview with MTV, Danai Gurira had this to say about Okoye: “Literally, I have no information. That’s the beauty of our conversation right now: my brain is vacant. Oh, Mr. Coogler says, ‘tell ’em we’re working hard and you’re in it.’”

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Andy Serkis, Travis Knight, and Rupert Wyatt have all been in talks with Sony to direct Venom 2, and they want to start filming in November.

***********

Marvel President and producer Kevin Feige gave an interview to BET. The entire thing is well worth the read. He talks about Black Panther 2, the Netflix Marvel characters, Ironheart, and more.

You can read it here:

https://www.bet.com/celebrities/exclusives/kevin-feige-marvel-interview-spider-man.html

In an interview with Mashable, he said that the Disney + Marvel shows will do things that “shockingly and unexpectedly change those characters in big ways.” These changes will impact their next big screen MCU appearances.

Several Marvel  stars showed up at ACE Comic Con in Seattle. Here are a few interview bits from their panels.

Zoe Saldana: On the possibility of exploring “bad Gamora”: “It all depends. The technical answer is it all depends on what Marvel and James Gunn desire to do with the Guardians and with Gamora’s fate. I would eventually, there’s a part of me that wants her to go back, find her way back to the Guardians but there’s also a part of me that wants to explore a bad Gamora. I’ve never seen that and she’s, you know, she’s considered the most lethal assassin, the most lethal woman in the galaxy so I would want to see what that wrath looks like also because it would just give me layers to sort of work on. But yeah, I want her to get back to the Guardians.”

Josh Brolin on wanting to play Cable in the MCU: “Wait, Disney bought Fox?!” he joked. “I don’t know what’s going to happen. I’m actually, I’ve been calling them, like, ‘What’s the deal with Cable, man?’ Seriously, 100 percent serious. They’re figuring it out. It’s a big world now, it just got much, much bigger. So who knows?”

Chris Evans on whether the alternate timeline Steve lives with Peggy will be explored: “You know, I’m not sure I can give you those answers. That’s weak as shit, but ask the writers,” Evans said. “Look, I understand there’s a lot of things you can question about the time continuity but if there’s one thing I’ve learned about working with Marvel, they don’t leave stones unturned. They really don’t.”

(Whoa, Cap! Language!)

Deadline reported that some of the Avengers will show up at SDCC for a reunion: As an aside, Deadline is also hearing that some form of an Avengers reunion is in store down at SDCC. Some of the cast members could show up at the AGBO panel Friday, or at the Marvel panel on Saturday night. Consider it one last goodbye.”

SDCC has also released their Saturday schedule. Marvel’s panel will take place at 5:15 P.M. Pacific Time. They will have 90 minutes for their presentation. We will finally have information about what to expect for the beginning of Phase 4.

Sony producer Amy Pascal had this to say about the next Spider-Man MCU movie: “You know, I don’t think that we’re ready to tell anybody yet. But, yes, of course, there are so many stories that you can tell about Peter Parker and Spider-Man. I think the multi-verse and the Spider-Verse has opened up unlimited possibilities for us. I think that the great thing about what Stan [Lee] and Steve [Ditko] did, is that they are characters that can be reinterpreted. It’s 1962, it’s a long time for something to remain fresh, and yet it’s been able to. I think that’s because just like all of the artists who did all of the various spectacular, amazing, ultimate, everything has been able to reinterpret these kinds of classical characters. We’re able to do that, too.”

While promoting Spider-Man: Far From Home, Samuel L. Jackson had this to say about Nick Fury NOT being in the Black Widow movie: “It’s Natasha who was always been my favourite because I recruited her. So far, I’m not in her origin story movie [Laughs]. She’s the person I was closest to in that group.”

Rumor

According to GeeksWorldwide, the characters Cloak and Dagger could crossover with the Runaways in season 3. The third season of Runaways will consist of 10 episodes, slightly shorter than season 2’s order of 13 episodes. There’s currently no word on if Cloak and Dagger will receive a third season.

As of right now, this plot is just speculation. Nothing has been confirmed by Marvel or anyone connected with them.

I am so excited about this!!!!! This series can’t get here soon enough!

Oh, Where is My Avengers 4 Trailer?

Unlike last week, there is a lot of news and speculation this week. So, let’s get to it!

Earlier this week, MCU Cosmic reported there’s a rumor going around that two characters from The Eternals, Karen and Piper, could appear in the end credits scene in a future cosmic movie like Captain Marvel or Avengers 4. It makes sense because Marvel often plants seeds in the end credits scenes  for future storylines. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

     Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse isn’t even out yet, but The Hollywood Reporter announced that Sony Animation already has plans for not only a sequel but also an all-female spinoff as well.

I’m really excited for Into The Spiderverse. It looks really good! And I’m also happy that Sony is confident that the movie will do well and is moving forward with sequels.

It made major headlines this week when Avengers 4 director Joe Russo said during an interview with USA Today  that “I think it was more emotional for him than it was us because he’s not done yet. I won’t explain what that means but fans will soon understand what I’m talking about.”

I have no idea what’s in store for Captain America, but it gives me a tiny glimmer of hope that they won’t kill him off in Avengers 4. But this is the Russo Brothers we’re talking about so that’s why my hope is so tiny.

The trailer for the second season of The Runaways was released and is premiering on Hulu on December 21.

     Deadline announced yesterday that Netflix’s Daredevil has been canceled after 3 seasons. Netflix said in a statement,  “While the series on Netflix has ended, the three existing seasons will remain on the service for years to come, while the Daredevil character will live on in future projects for Marvel,”

I wonder where he’ll show up in the future. Only time will tell, I guess.

     Funko POP has released photos for a boatload of Captain Marvel POPS.

 

 

My wallet is already hurting. So many different versions of Captain Marvel, how’s a girl supposed to choose! I really like her on that motorcycle and the  cats are also adorable! 😍

Well. Another week is passed and there still seems to no sign of an Avengers 4 trailer. I have no date for when it will be released, but it is possible that we could see a trailer next week. Maybe. Hopefully. The trailer will be shared on our Facebook page when it is released.

The Marvel Studios Vice President Louis D’Esposito had this to say about the impending trailer release:

310A7D0C-952A-47CF-AECC-D3A743846512

 

There’s also some really big Marvel news coming next week that all my Marvel Media people are talking about, but they’re not even dropping hints about what it is! All I know is that it’s going to be huge and exciting for Marvel fans. It could possibly be game related, but there is no confirmation on that. I won’t know anything until next week! I’m feeling a little impatient, but at least next week isn’t that far away.

This just in: Deadline just reported that the Disney Plus Scarlet Witch series will be called Vision And The Scarlet Witch and will launch sometime next year. This title currently hasn’t been confirmed by Marvel so take it with a grain of salt. Things could always change.

That’s all the new info I have for you this week. I’ll be back next week with another News Roundup. See ya then, if not sooner.

Over and Out,
