Deaf Clint, Two Spideys, WandaVision Oh, My!

Entertainment Weekly released their latest magazine where upcoming Disney Plus show, WandaVision takes center stage on the cover.

Four new gorgeous black and white stills were also released.

I spot Speed and Wiccan!
I’m getting total Dick Van Dyke Show Vibes!
Welcome to the fifties!
Bewitched by the Scarlet Witch. Sam, is that you?

Here’s the link to the cover story. It was so much fun to read!

WandaVision will debut on Disney Plus on January 15, 2021.

Murphy’s Multiverse revealed that WandaVision will receive a Behind the Scenes Gallery series similar to what Star Wars did with The Mandalorian. I hope this means we eventually get a Behind the Scenes look at Loki and Falcon and Winter Soldier as well.

Small Screen has reported that Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man will make a cameo appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Andrew Garfield is in talks to reprise his Spidey as well. If this true, perhaps rumors of a live action Spiderverse movie are true too.

Ryan Reynolds will reportedly be making his MCU debut as Deadpool in the Doctor Strange sequel as well.

Charles Murphy, of Murphy’s Multiverse, has reported that Ms. Marvel has started filming in Atlanta.

As of November 13th, Loki has 4-5 weeks of filming left according to Executive Vice President Victoria Alonso.

Murphy’s Multiverse has reported that Clint Barton will be going deaf during the Hawkeye show.

According to a casting notice, “They are actively looking for a middle-aged Chinese audiologist, who works in a rundown building and is off-the-books.”

This is something that fans have wanted to see happen for a long time. Now it seems like is finally happening.

Chris Pratt has confirmed that he’ll be reprising his role as Star Lord in Thor: Love and Thunder.


Rumors

***********

According to Daniel Richtman, Ryan Reynolds wants to spend more time out of the Deadpool mask in future MCU Projects.

It’s been rumored by Geekosity’s Mikey Sutton that Iron Fist will make his MCU debut in Shang-Chi 2. Finn Jones is unlikely to return as Iron Fist:

Shang-Chi 2 is looking increasingly like the movie for Iron Fist to make his cinematic debut. The chances of Finn Jones reprising the role are dim, though. According to my sources, Kevin Feige was not particularly impressed with Netflix’ Iron Fist. Out of all the Defenders series on Netflix, it certainly had the most polarized response by the fans and the critics weren’t exactly knocked out, either. Limited in budget and lacking in the intense and believable fight choreography to pull it off, Iron Fist simply didn’t fulfill its potential.

That’s all for this week. Thanks for reading!

‘Loki’ and FAWS Rumors

Marvel News

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

During an interview with Hey U Guys, Tom Holland had this to say about his recent meeting with Sony and Marvel:

“I know everything now. (About what’s happening in SpiderMan 3) I had my big pitch meeting with Marvel and Sony about two weeks ago and I know all the secrets. But I’ve also done about a thousand interviews so I know how not to spoil a movie anymore. ”

Yeah, right! I’ll believe it when I don’t hear any spoilers!

According to GWW, Moon Knight is expected to start filming in mid-November in Atlanta, Georgia. Filming will take place at Pinewood Studios, and Murphy’s Multiverse has said that some filming is rumored to take place in the UK.

@ProdWeek has reported that Spider-Man 3 will film under the working title Serenity Now.

According to Knight Edge Media, Marvel is looking for an “Alison Brie type” of actress to play She-Hulk.

 

 

 

RumorVille

***********

Murphy’s Multiverse has heard that some scenes for Thor: Love and Thunder may be filmed in Vancouver.

The above source also heard that some of Falcon and Winter Soldier plot may need to be reworked. Apparently, part of the story revolved around some sort of pandemic similar to what’s currently going on with the Corona Virus. So as not to copy current events, they might reshoot some scenes.

Hawkeye is rumored to start filming late September.

She-Hulk is expected to start filming sometime in November. MCU Cosmic has reported that Mark Ruffalo has had “preliminary talks” about appearing in the series.

@DanielRPK has shared that Wiz Kid, a Mutant character, will appear in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

“Otherwise known as Takeshi Matsuya, Wiz Kid is a computer genius confined to a wheelchair who has the mutant ability of technoform where he can create machinery with his mind.”

(Source: MCU Cosmic)

Since the character is wheelchair-bound, I hope they get a disabled actor to play him. This could be great representation for the disabled community if Marvel plays their cards right!

Sebastian Stan posted this picture on his Instagram:

Several sources including MCU Cosmic and GWW are speculating that Clé Bennett (Center) will be playing Battlestar in Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Bleeding Cool has reported that the Squadron Supreme will show up in the Loki series. The Squadron Supreme is Marvel’s version of DC’s Justice League.

The more rumors come out, the more interested I have become toward the Loki series.

THR reported that Chris Evans is in talks for the role of “dentist Orin Scrivello, Audrey’s abusive and sadistic boyfriend, who finds great pleasure in his chosen profession. The role is flashy (the character loves to use laughing gas) and comes with the scene-stealing signature song, “Dentist!” Scarlett Johansson is rumored to be playing the aforementioned Audrey.

If talks go well, Cap and Nat could be reunited onscreen.

 

Jurassic World: Dominion started filming a few days ago.

THR has reported that Michael Rooker has joined the cast of the Showtime pilot The President is Missing.

“Rooker will play the government agent tasked with protecting the vice president (David Oyelowo) in the adaptation of James Patterson and Bill Clinton’s mega-selling novel. He joins a cast that also includes Janet McTeer, Medina Senghore, Paul Adelstein and Gina Gallego.”

You can read the show’s synopsis below:

“The drama centers on Oyelowo’s James Martin, the powerless and politically aimless vice president of the United States. When he unexpectedly becomes president halfway through his administration’s first term, he walks right into a secret, world-threatening crisis both inside and outside the White House. Attacked on all sides, with scandal and conspiracy swirling around him, he has to choose whether to keep his head down, toe the party line and survive or act on his stubborn, late-developing conscience and take a stand.

Rooker will play Greg Parkes, the special agent in charge of the vice presidential detail. The impossible task of protecting Martin has proved more than a warrior like Parkes can bear.”

Backstage.com reported that Tom Hiddleston’s Netflix series White Stork has been given the green light. Casting has begun, and the series will begin filming this Summer in London.

That’s all for this week. Thanks for reading!

Spidey Come Home and D23 Announcements

I’m not going to do headers this week because it’s all Marvel news. I’ve been away for health reasons so for the next few weeks I won’t be talking about other projects that our favorite actors are up to. When things calm down  again that part of the blog will return.

 

It was emotional for Spider-Man fans this week when it was revealed by various sources that Sony and Disney could not reach a deal when it came to Spider-Man continuing in the MCU. The Homecoming was short-lived and Tom Holland’s Spidey is out of the MCU for the time being. Fingers crossed that Sony and Disney can get their crap together and that everyone’s favorite web-slinger can stay home where he belongs.

Sony’s statement on the ordeal reads as follows:

“Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise,” Sony said in a statement. “We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live action Spider-Man film. We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own,” the statement continued. “Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue.”

Tom Holland had this to say about Spider-Man’s future:

‘All I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man … The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler’

Kevin Feige on Sony’s Spider-Man decision:

“It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”

D23 is well underway and a bunch of cool Marvel stuff was announced:

Three new Disney + shows were announced including:

Ms. Marvel which will be written and produced by Bisha K. Ali. (Source: The Hollywood Reporter)

Some new cast members for WandaVision were announced:

Kathryn Hahn will play a “nosy neighbor.”

The show is being described as part classic sitcom (Yay! My favorite kind!) and part epic MCU adventure.

Falcon and Winter Soldier:

Wyatt Russell will be playing US Agent.

Emily VanCamp will return as Sharon Carter.

 

What If?

There will be one episode for each of the 23 movies that are currently out.

Almost the entire MCU cast will be lending their voices to the project.

Concepts for episodes include:

Steve Rogers in a suit the size of Iron Monger.

T’Challa as Star Lord.

Zombie Captain America.

 

Loki:

Kate Herron will be directing the series.

Questions to be answered:

Will the sun shine on Loki again?

Will Loki make a new friend? (Please be Verity Willis!)

Where did he go with the Tesseract?

 

The season seven trailer for Agents of Shield was released:

 

 

Contrary to recent reports, Taika Waititi HASN’T finished the Thor: Love and Thunder script. He tweeted saying that the title page is complete. You gotta start somewhere!

Avengers: Endgame will be available to stream on Disney + on December 11.

In an interview with uproxx, Martin Freeman said the last he heard Black Panther 2 will begin filming at the beginning of 2021.

DiscussingFilm reported that Matt is in talks to direct a six episode Marvel series for Disney+. There is no info on what series it could be.
