Marvel News and Rumors

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

Murphy’s Multiverse has been busy reporting Marvel news this week, and I’m excited to share it with you!

RUMOR: Marvel has named the production company for Fantastic Four, Solve Everything.

A possible production company for Blade has been named Grass-fed. Other options for Grass-fed include a Secret Invasion project or Spider-Woman.

You can go here for more speculation:

It sounds like Falcon and the Winter Soldier may start filming soon with the cast rumored to return to Atlanta as early as this weekend. Filming could resume as early as next week, or the cast and crew could be required to quarantine for two weeks. Either way, the wheels of Hollywood are starting to turn, which hopefully means a slow return to normal.

An audition tape for the role of America Chavez surfaced this week, but was deleted from the internet soon after discovery. It does appear that America will debut in the Doctor Strange sequel.

Captain Marvel 2 will be filming, at least partly, in the UK.

 

 

 

Deadline reported that Olivia Wilde has been brought on as director of a solo female driven film for Sony’s Spider-Man Universe. Speculation is running high that it’s the Spider-Woman movie.

They also reported that Sony is considering J. C. Chandor to direct a Kraven the Hunter movie.

Disney Insider reported the rumor that Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will be “likely directing Ms. Marvel on Disney Plus.
