MARVEL STUDIOS WEEKLY NEWS [34:35]
MCU – MARVEL STUDIOS
Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 | New Trailer
Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 gets an emotional new trailer.
An official trailer for the third Guardians of the Galaxy film was released during Super Bowl LVII on Feb. 12 and featured new footage of the team as they prepare for “one last ride,” in what will be their final entry together in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The trailer shows Will Poulter’s Adam Warlock, Rocket Raccoon’s origin story — including his girlfriend, Lylla — Zoe Saldana’s Gamora and more. Written and directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be the last appearance from this group of Guardians in the MCU.
Kevin Feige opens up about Phase 5, Kang, and the future of the MCU
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has revealed that fans will see Oscar Isaac’s Moon Knight again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Feige brought up Moon Knight’s MCU future during a conversation with Entertainment Weekly about the initial wave of Marvel-produced Disney+ series, which included the six-episode Moon Knight series. “The fun thing about streaming is they are there forever, and people can keep re-exploring them,” Feige said. “Moon Knight, same thing. I think there’s a future for that character as we move forward.”
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has provided an update on Spider-Man 4.
During a chat with Entertainment Weekly, Feige was asked if there were any updates on Spider-Man 4, following the massive success of Spider-Man: No Way Home. While his response was short, he did indicate the story is already settled for Peter Parker’s next adventure. Feige said, “All I will say is that we have the story. We have big ideas for that, and our writers are just putting pen to paper now.”
Marvel Studios President and Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige “reveals” which character from The Marvels steals the upcoming film.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Feige discussed what the major takeaways were for Marvel Studios during Phase 4, which introduced several new characters to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a variety of films and television shows. “I hope we learn something on every project,” he said. “I was very pleased with everything that we did. Kamala Khan, for instance, is a great new character in the pantheon. I’m very proud of the Ms. Marvel show. I also know — and this is a spoiler — she essentially steals The Marvels, which is coming out [July 28]. It makes me excited that people will, I hope, see that movie and then go back and revisit those shows on Disney+.”
The Marvel Cinematic Universe reboot of Blade, starring Mahershala Ali as the famous vampire hunter, will shoot in about two and a half months, according to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige.
Feige was interviewed by Entertainment Weekly about the MCU’s Phase Five, which begins with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and ends with an all new Blade in late 2024. When asked if he had any updates on Blade, Feige didn’t disclose many details but confirmed that the film is moving along smoothly. “It’s going well,” Feige said. “Our director Yann [Demange] is down in Atlanta right now. Cameras roll in, like, the next 10 weeks or so.” Insider reports previously claimed that Blade wouldn’t begin shooting until July, but Feige’s projected start date of 10 weeks means the movie will begin shooting this spring.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently confirmed that Harrison Ford’s Thunderbolt Ross is the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s new U.S. President.
Feige confirmed that Ross will move into the Oval Office in Captain America: New World Order in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “[Ross is] the President of the United States in the film,” he said. “And with Harrison, you think about Air Force One, and you think about some of his confrontations with the president in Clear and Present Danger. There’s a dynamic between President Ross and Sam Wilson. They have a history together, but in this film, we’ll be seeing the dynamic between Captain America and the President of the United States in a way that is just incredible.”
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige addressed the ever-expanding scope of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, pointing out that it was necessary to release a wide variety of films and television shows while noting that not everything would necessarily appeal to everyone.
“If there’s a Marvel Studios method — like there was a Marvel method in publishing — it’s trying to do both,” Feige told Entertainment Weekly when asked about balancing ongoing MCU story threads with capturing new audiences. “I’ve talked about this for years: If you want to dip in and out and just go to the movies on a Friday night or watch a streaming series, you can do that. And if you want to follow along, there’s certainly much more to be discovered. But we don’t ever want it to seem exclusive or that you need to have done your homework before watching something. Now, I’ve also realized that a lot of people like to do the homework. A lot of people find the fun in the homework and the continuity and the connectivity. But it is a balance of always trying to do both.”
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes will play an essential role in the highly-anticipated Thunderbolts movie.
Speaking with EW, Feige teased that Bucky Barnes will become the de facto leader of this group of complicated individuals who don’t even consider themselves heroes. “What’s fun about that [Thunderbolts film], and I sort of said this at D23, is that they are barely heroes,” Feige said. “None of them would consider themselves heroes. When your de facto leader is Bucky Barnes, that’s sort of all you need to know. That’s the trickle down.”
According to Kevin Feige, the ‘Previously On’ recap could be less important for upcoming Marvel TV shows as they might experiment with more traditional episodic structures.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Feige stated that “[w]e want to do shows that can only be shows. I want to continue to make them even more episodic, which may seem counterintuitive. But I do think there is something fun about leaning back and watching an episode that can be relatively self-contained.” He pointed to watching episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation to illustrate the pleasures of less overarching TV storytelling: “I still find it soothing to watch an episode of Next Gen with a beginning and an end. So, I think we’re going to keep experimenting with that going forward.”
When it comes to upcoming projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has one, in particular, he’s most looking forward to.
“…We talked a little bit about Secret Wars. We talked about Kang Dynasty as related to Quantumania,” Feige told Entertainment Weekly, referencing the MCU’s current storylines and reflecting on future projects. “The only other one in terms of me personally and my 23-year history is the Fantastic Four. We sort of talked about mutants and that whole aspect to the Marvel world, but Fantastic Four is the foundation for everything that came after in the comics. There’s certainly been versions of it [on screen], but never inhabiting the storytelling of the MCU. And that’s something that is really exciting for us.”
The Marvels Bumps Its Release Date Back to Late 2023
Marvel Studios has delayed its upcoming Phase 5 title The Marvels from summer 2023 to late 2023.
Announced alongside a brand-new teaser poster for the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel, The Marvels is now scheduled to open in theaters on Nov. 10. This is the fifth release date for The Marvels, which was originally scheduled to open back in July 2022. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the film was delayed to November 2022 and then February 2023. Marvel Studios had previously had the film set to open on July 28 for this latest delay.
No reason was given by Marvel Studios for the film’s delay; however, a recent report has claimed that Marvel is looking at having more breathing room between MCU projects to prevent audience fatigue as well as allow the creative times more time in post-production. The report mentions that the Disney+ series Echo and Ironheart are no longer guaranteed to debut in 2023 because of these changes and that development on other projects — like the rumored Nova series — will slow down. However, the insiders did not mention if the MCU films would be affected by this decision, so it is impossible to say if that is the reason for The Marvels’ delay until Marvel Studios confirms the report, which it has yet to do at the time of writing.
REPORT: Kevin Feige Is Eyeing Disney’s Top Creative Position
While Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige’s presence has been ubiquitous for fans following news about the Marvel Cinematic Universe since its 2008 inception, he’s reportedly vying for a higher position.
Feige, according to The Hot Mic podcast’s Jeff Sneider, is looking to ascend the leadership ladder at Disney, specifically for the position of Walt Disney Studios Chairman. The position in question, currently occupied by Alan Bergman, is essentially the second-highest in the entire Disney corporate structure, just below the #1 spot of the recently reinstated CEO Bob Iger. Feige has long-coveted the position, and “wants to be the #2 at Disney,” according to Sneider, who said that he has designs for “being the creative absolute head of a studio who can put his fingerprints on everything and leave maybe the business stuff to someone in the Iger-type of seat, who has to oversee parks, resorts and cruise ships.” Indeed, he adds that the longtime Marvel Studios overseer “aspires to be more than the head of a label.”
How Kang Became Marvel’s Next Supervillain and Why Phase 4 Sets It All Up
While Tony Stark/Iron Man started the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios executive Stephen Broussard recently shared disappointing news about MCU veteran Robert Downey Jr. possibly returning to the franchise.
While speaking to io9, Broussard said that he thought one of Phase 4’s meta-narratives centered on new characters and mantles taken up by the latest heroes. “If you look at, like, Cassie [Lang in Quantumania] getting a suit and Kate Bishop [in Hawkeye], new characters being introduced like Jack in Werewolf by Night,” he explained. “After these first 10 years of Marvel storytelling, torches are being passed, like with Robert Downey Jr. no longer being [on the] table and stuff like that. So it was kind of like a new generation stepping to the forefront which, again, has always happened in the comics.”
Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Releases Its First Episode Online for Free
The double-length premiere episode of Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is available to stream online for free.
The premiere, titled “Moon Girl Landing,” was released on YouTube the same day it aired on Disney Channel. The show follows Lunella Lafayette (Diamond White), a 13-year-old super-genius living in Manhattan, whose portal experiment accidentally summons a cherry-red Tyrannosaurus rex (Fred Tatasciore). Encouraged by her new friend and manager Casey (Libe Barer), Lunella dons a costume and an arsenal of homemade gadgets to protect the Lower East Side alongside the beast as the duo Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. However, when the two come across a genuine supervillain in the form of the electrically-powered Aftershock (Alison Brie), Lunella fears she may not actually have what it takes to be a hero.
Disney+’s X-Men Season 2 Gets Announcement Video
Wolverine voice actor Cal Dodd has confirmed that he is already working on the second season of the Disney+ animated series X-Men ’97, Marvel Studios’ upcoming follow-up to the beloved X-Men: The Animated Series.
Per The Direct, Dodd announced that he had begun recording lines for X-Men ’97 Season 2 in a now-deleted Twitter post. “Yesterday. Studio. Season 2. GREAT session!” Dodd wrote. In the accompanying video, the voice actor added, “Cal Dodd, voice of Wolverine from X-Men ’97. The beginning of Season 2, I say, just the beginning. Strap your seatbelts on, bub. Later.”
