‘Thor 4: Love and Thunder’ Rumors

Marvel News

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

During an interview with Yahoo! News, Sebastian Stan discussed his feelings on Bucky possibly  becoming the next Captain America:

“I don’t know about that. Not really though, if you think about it. It makes no sense for him to…why would you give it to the guy that’s been trying to have a whole new history outside of the thing he’s been trapped by. I remember I found out [about Falcon getting the shield] the day we were shooting. I was like ‘Oh wow, this is the deal.’ But it makes sense. He’s [Sam Wilson] has been his [Captain America’s] right-hand for a long time at this point.”

In an interview with MTV News, Scarlett Johansson has said that Black Widow will be inspired by movies like Logan, Terminator 2, and The Fugitive.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tom Hiddleston has said that filming for the Loki Disney+ TV series will begin in early 2020.

In a post on Instagram, Ryan Reynolds seemed to tease a Phase 5 Deadpool movie.

Natalie Portman posted that she’s hard at work researching for her role as the Mighty Thor in Thor: Love and Thunder.

At the 2019 SIGGRAPH conference, Marvel executive producer Victoria Alonso had this to say about the quality expected of Black Widow: [Black Widow] “should be the best movie that we make.”

In an interview with Inverse, Black Widow writer Jac Schaeffer had this to say about the violence in Black Widow:

“The fighting [in Black Widow] is a lot of close contact, hand-to-hand combat,” Schaeffer said. “It’s very visceral. There’s a lot of aggression and power in a very human way that I find really satisfying and really exciting to watch, but it’s the polar opposite to writing for super-powered characters.” [In reference to being the showrunner for Wandavision]

She also said that part of Black Widow will take place after Captain America: Civil War. To be more specific, what happens after the Avengers fight at the airport. [Natasha is] “very much on her own and over the events of the Black Widow movie, she has to reckon with some of the red in her ledger.”

According to MCU Cosmic, Marvel plans to introduce comics characters Galactus and Tyrant in the MCU at some point in the future.

The same source has said that a report has been released concerning a shooting location for Eternals. The location is in the Canary Islands, “a UNESCO  World Heritage site, Teide National Park.”  This particular site will be used for a “prehistoric” location.

DFBF0732-D466-451A-887D-553877222E20

406935E6-6D29-44B3-9DFE-A3189B98B99B

Black Widow

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

1. Some footage was shown during the panel. Here’s a description of that footage once again from TotalFilm:

“Glimpses of Natasha’s past come flooding in the teaser, flashing through the her assassin academy memories from Avengers: Age of Ultron. “I made a family,” Natasha opines, as the footage leads into her turn in Captain America: Civil War, when she made a decision to let Captain America escape instead of capturing him. “They’re coming for you,” Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) warns, as she flees…setting the stage for Black Widow, which seemingly takes place after the events of Captain America: Civil War.

In Budapest, Natasha cautiously makes her way up an old, turn-of-the-century apartment building with a lavish staircase but weathered walls. Entering an apartment she points her gun and calls for Yelena, saying, “We’re grown-ups here.” Florence Pugh’s Yelena appears from around the corner, pointing her gun. They stand mere inches apart, guns in each other’s faces for several seconds before they both disarm each other, the camera showing their graceful parallel movements — obviously students of the same school. The grimy, tactile fight is reminiscent of the Bournefilms, especially in its low light and intense close-ups. Finding their usual tactics too well-matched, their fight gets nasty and brutal, with Natasha pushing Yelena’s head down a sink and Yelena breaking a plate over Natasha’s head, and eventually resorting to knives. They find themselves at several impasses, until both of them have placed each other in chokeholds with the apartment’s curtains. After a cut to black, they’re shown having drinks.

“It’s good to see you too,” Natasha says, handing Yelena a shot glass.

The teaser leads into several car chases, with Natasha weaving in and out of Eastern European streets. We get quick shots of solemn, Brutalist imagery and foreboding silhouettes.”I got rid of my ledger,” Natasha declares, though it seems like she hasn’t completely been rid of her past. The teaser closes out with Natasha getting pinned behind a flaming car on a bridge, with hooded man attacking her in the middle of the street. The hooded uniform and its sleek design with red lining resembles that of Taskmaster, a Marvel villain that has recently been rumored to appear in Black Widow. But who is under the suit?”

2. It’s directed by Cate Shortland.

3. The cast includes:

Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow.

David Harbour as Alexei aka The Red Guardian.

Florence Pugh as Yelena, “A sister figure to Natasha.”

O.T. Fagbenle as Mason, “an old contact of Natasha’s before she worked with SHIELD, and a potential love interest.”

Rachel Weisz as Melina, “a pretty tough chick,” aka Iron Maiden.

4. It will be released on May 1, 2020.

5. The film isn’t a prequel after all, but will take place after Civil War when Natasha is a “fully realized woman.”

This is new territory, a new world, new challenges I can’t wait to get started.”

3. It will be released in Spring 2021.

With Young Avenger Kate Bishop by his side, he’s out to get some downtime from being one of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes…but when the apartment building he’s moved into, and the neighbors he’s befriended, are threatened by a tracksuit-wearing, dog-abusing gang of Eastern European mobsters who say “bro” an awful lot, Clint must stand up and defend his new adopted family…any way he can.”

5. The show will be available to stream on Disney+ in Fall 2021.

Last night the complete Phase 4 slate was revealed. In an interview with Collider, Kevin Feige had this to say, “It is the complete Phase Four the way I announced the complete Phase Three five years ago—things can move, things can change as they did if you go back and look at what we talked about five years ago for Phase Three, but we’ve been working on this for quite a while and it’s pretty set.

That’s all. Like it wasn’t enough?! As always, I look forward to hyping up these films with my friends over on our Facebook page My Marvelous Escape.

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.
