    2. Long article
    3. About the show ending, Stephen Amell said, “I’m very emotional and melancholy, but it’s time. I’m 38 years old, and I got this job when I was 30. I’d never had a job for more than a year. The fact that I’ve done this for the better part of a decade, and I’m not going to do it anymore, is a little frightening.”

FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER BRINGS BACK FAMILIAR FACES — AND INTRODUCES NEW ONES

While Feige didn’t offer much news on Loki besides introducing series director Kate Herron (Sex Education) and writer Michael Waldron (Harmonquest), there were a few casting announcements to make for the other announced series. Captain America: The Winter Soldier actress Emily Vancamp returns as SHIELD Agent Sharon Carter for Falcon and the Winter Soldier, while Wyatt Russell makes his MCU debut as John Walker, known to comics fans as U.S. Agent. Both remained tight-lipped on details of their characters.

WANDAVISION HAS THE MOST ECLECTIC MCU CAST

The Scarlet Witch and Vision series’ strange juxtaposition of a 1950s sitcom and typical MCU adventure only grew stranger when more of the cast was revealed. In addition to a grown up version of Monica Rambeau played by Dear White People’s Teyonah Parris, Kat Dennings will reprise the role of Darcy Lewis from Thor and Thor 2, with Randall Park playing Agent Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp. Joining as “WandaVision’s nosy neighbor” is Kathryn Hahn, which sounds extremely Bewitched.

Three new Marvel shows — and three new Marvel heroes joining the MCU — were announced at D23: Ms. Marvel aka Kamala Khan, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk. Ms. Marvel specifically was confirmed by Feige to eventually make her way from streaming to the films. Moon Knight focuses on a mercenary named Mark Spectre left for dead in Egypt. She-Hulk will be about Bruce Banner’s cousin Jennifer Walters — who is also a lawyer — in a show “unlike anything we’ve done before.”

Ming-Na Wen, already a Disney staple as the voice of Mulan in the iconic original animated film and as a star of ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., has been confirmed as a cast member of The Mandalorian, the upcoming Star Wars universe series for Disney+.

“Please just keep acquiring all these different franchises,” she said during her speech, turning to Iger, “because I just keep getting employed by them. I have hit every bucket list thanks to Disney.”

ARROW NEWS:

  1. Arrow’s Katherine McNamara Promoted to Series Regular for Final Season (Date: 11 July 2019)
    1. TVLine has learned that Katherine McNamara, who debuted and recurred during Season 7 as the 2040 street fighter-turned-rebel leader, has been promoted to series regular status for the CW drama’s 10-episode farewell run.
    2. The news comes as little surprise seeing as Joseph David-Jones, who plays Future Connor Hawke — Ben Turner aka Bronze Tiger’s son, who is ultimately adopted by Diggle and Lyla — was himself promoted to series regular last month. Plus, as first reported by TVLine, the role of Diggle and Lyla’s grown-up biological son, John Jr., is being cast for the flash-forward storyline, in which he thus far has only been referenced or encountered off-screen.
    3. Arrow kicks off its 10-episode final season on Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 9;8c, with the premiere titled “Starling City.”

GENERAL DC News

  1. Legends of Tomorrow: Constantine to Return for Season 5 (Date: 10 July 2019)
    1. Ryan is returning as a series regular for the show’s fifth season which will debut at midseason. This will surely be good news for Constantine fans as well as will be very helpful for the Legends themselves considering how the Season 4 finale teased at a major new threat coming for not just the team, but the world.
    2. https://comicbook.com/dc/2019/07/10/legends-of-tomorrow-matt-ryan-constantine-series-regular-season-/
  2. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow ups Astra actress to series regular for season 5 (Date: 11 July 2019)
    1. Astra Logue will continue to cause trouble for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in season 5. EW can exclusively reveal that Olivia Swann, who portrays Astra, a.k.a. Constantine’s Achilles heel, has been promoted to series regular for season 5. It’s fair to say this doesn’t mean anything good for the Legends seeing as how last season ended with Astra releasing the souls of Genghis Khan, Charles Manson, and many other historical bad guys back into the world of the living.
    2. “A lot of what Constantine is going to be dealing with this is season is his very complicated relationship with her and a desire to save her despite all the pain and trouble she’s putting us through,” producer Keto Shimizu says.
    3. https://ew.com/tv/2019/07/11/legends-of-tomorrow-olivia-swann-astra-season-5-big-bad/?fbclid=IwAR1zBlzTX-AvAV542Dkwru8L3t2QDASfBo9kTGVrs34cJIExf2QHrxNTTZs
