Haley (known in some circles as AwsmEngrGrl) was born, raised, and educated in the flyover states of America.
She's been a fan of scifi and fantasy tv, books, and movies from a young age, and recently started reading all of the Marvel comics starting with Fantastic Four #1. All of them.

THE SECRET ORIGIN OF LAUREN: Lauren thought that she was just a normal girl until the day that someone informed her that only geeks read comics and watch Star Wars. And from that day forward, a geek she was. Now she spends most of her time reading comics, writing horror fiction, watching entirely too much TV, and knitting adorable lacy scarves while watching hideously depressing movies. Warning: talking with Lauren may result in an overly enthusiastic outburst known as the "fangirl flail" when discussing topics of interest. Topics of interest include Star Wars, X-men, Marvel, comics in general, A Song of Ice and Fire, genre fiction, genre TV shows, cute animals, animals that everyone else thinks are horrible, and Roman history.

One Shot Review On 2021 Film Shang Chi And The Legend of the Ten Rings (A Marvel Fan Podcast) LoS401

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Lauren, Agent Michelle, Consultant Chris, and Specialist Consultant Aki and Producer of the show Director SP discuss the 2021 Marvel Studios film Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and the weekly Marvel News. The Team welcomes Aki to the podcast and welcome back Agent Michelle to the podcast from her sabbatical. The Team then debriefs you on how their overall impressions of the film are slightly split and why, the mis-translations in the film, how a few Team members were thrown off by language and captions at the beginning of the film, the story of Shang Chi and Xialing’s parents, how Wenwu villain motivations were delightful, the future possibilities with Xialing, some deep Marvel Cinematic universe tie ins that were not obvious, the Kung Fu martial arts fighting review, the dragons in the film and how many wished the MCU had them earlier, the wonderful depictions of Chinese mythical creatures in Ta Lo, how the karaoke was amazing AND culturally accurate, how some cultural nuances were not accurately shown on screen, the epic bus fight twitter thread commentary, and the Team members’ predictions on where the characters will return in the MCU. Stay tuned after the credits for a few minutes of Legends Of S.H.I.E.L.D. bonus audio.

San Francisco Bus Driver Critiques Shang Chi and the Ten Rings Bus Fight Scene

https://twitter.com/that_mc/status/1459613123590066180?s=20

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Finally watching Shang-Chi, here as a bus operator to rate the SFT transit factors of The Bus Scene:

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

SFT (San Francisco Transit?) is using a New Flyer D60 articulated 60 foot motor coach for the 1 California.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

But the bus is headed south on Noe at 21st St, they are seriously off route!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I like these brushed steel and green cushion seats, they look nicer and harder to clean than muni’s

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

That’s a real ad  for the jazz and blues festical you can find in muni buses

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

As a bus operator, this is the moment I pop my parking brake and open the doors.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This would Definitely Happen

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Energy sword arm man cuts through the floor of the articulating section. Also wears sensible boots for working on a bus!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This cuts through an air hose under the bus!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Our bus operator, played by Michael-Anthony Taylor, discovers his service brake isn’t working. He’s mashing on the treadle (pedal) and not stopping. That’s terrible! And he’s wearing earphones. That’s terrible. He definitely could be charged with an avoidable incident by SFT.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

He should be reaching for the Parking and Emergency Brake on his left control panel:

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Cap number 8964 would be a part time operator at muni, but SFT might have a different scheme?

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Now we are heading west on California at Mason St, and this is a serious hill. There could very well be cable cars in the way. Not to mention this has been a 40 minute bus ride from 21st and Noe, minimum.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Quick digression on how Air Brakes work. Energy sword arm man cut the brake lines, which would let all the air out of the system. When this happens, a backup, mechanical brake called the Spring Brake activates.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

The spring brake held open by air pressure. If there is no pressure, the brake is applied, and the wheels will not turn. Air brakes have a warning, that is audible as a very loud, continuous buzzer, whenever the air pressure drops below a certain threshold.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

A bus operator will stop the bus when this low air pressure warning goes off, because if the air brakes keep loosing pressure, the spring brakes WILL activate, and the bus is going to stop very very suddenly.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Bus operators don’t want to stop very hard because that’s how you get Falls On Board.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

When bus operators want to know what’s going on inside our passenger area, we look in the mirror up top, not over our shoulder

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This helps us keep our attention on steering the bus, to avoid cars that will definitely make illegal left turns in front of us all day every day. Powell and California.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

OUCH

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Operator wasn’t even wearing his seat belt! Workmans Comp not going to cover this. Also: Fall on Board.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is top quality bus driving. Also get the line “Every time I try to drive a bus I get yelled at” which a) lol and b) that’s just being a bus operator. We get yelled at whenever we try to drive a bus too.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I’m going to take this part by part. First of all, I want to get into the operators seat this easily just once in my entire life.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This space isn’t empty, there’s a big compartment with computers and electronics in there.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Operators lunch!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Seat Belt, should have been fastened!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is the parking and emergency brake. This is what the operator should have pulled way back when Shang-chi threw the first punch. If you are ever in a situation where you are unexpectedly in a run away bus and need to stop it, this yellow handle is the thing to grab.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Some operators really do sit with the seat all the way down and the wheel up and forward, but I find this very uncomfortable, like driving with your chin. When a bus operator takes over a bus, they immediately start by adjusting the seat to their preference.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Shang-Chi knows how to check on the passengers!

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Every bus has a fire extinguisher, and we check every day before we pull out of the yard. It is intended for exactly these situations.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Every bus operator cheers when the scooters get mashed to shreds.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I think this is more or less how an articulated section would react. I don’t actually operate articulated motor coaches, so IDK

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is Stockton at Bush, on top of the Stockton Street Tunnel.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I have no idea if this is what’s down there.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

The rear view mirrors are bus operators best friends. We cannot safely turn the bus if they aren’t adjusted properly. I would take a moment to check and make sure they are how I like them after this.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is how everyone asks to be let into the bus when we aren’t at a stop. Too real.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I’m impressed that she knew how to operate the door lever. When the doors are open, an interlock activates that prevents the bus from moving. This would also have been an option to try for an out of control bus. Also, that’s where you keep your coffee canteen, true facts.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

DON’T LOOK OVER YOUR SHOULDER WHILE DRIVING! The hazards are ahead of you. Aim High in Steering, everyone.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Now we are heading into the Stockton Street tunnel. This is MC Escher’s Hill, apparently.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I Laughed. So. Hard. at the stop request gag. Saw it coming from miles away OMG. On Muni, someone would absolutely have used this within 20 seconds of the start of the fight.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

We are finally coming to a stop at Larkin and North Point. Quite a ways to warp from Union Square IMO.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

This is the look I give passengers when I stopped too far from the curb. Good bus stops are hard. I hope you enjoyed my thread as much as I enjoyed this scene.

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Unfortunately I think this guy isn’t going to keep his job as a bus operator, though. I’m glad he’s ok, that was a nasty knock he took. Let’s hope he lands on his feet. Maybe he’ll drive charters?

 

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

I need to add a coda to this thread. First of all, amazing to see it get so much attention. I did not expect this. I guess this is where I make a soundcloud plug?

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

But really I just want you to support public transport by riding the bus more and driving a personal car less. Support policies that fund public transport, and support policies that prioritize people over parking spots.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

And thank your operator when you get off the bus. Every “Thank you” makes our day on the road a little better. I’m still a rookie operator, new to the job, but it make a difference to me.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Also mad props to all the talented people involved in bringing this scene to the screen: @SimuLiu and @awkwafina and Michael-Anthony Taylor and @big9nasty (energy sword arm man, or razorfist, I learned)

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

Brad Allan and Andy Cheng, choreographers for the scene, and the stunt performers, and the stunt driver (Kial Butler, Andrea Berchtold, and Cameron Ambridge have stunt driver credits in the film)

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

And also the special effects teams that put in I am sure untold hours to bring this scene to life. Huge congratulations and thanks to those who brought us this entertainment.

 

Mack, yes, That Mack @that_mc

And THANK YOU each and every one for riding Muni.

[4:16] ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ Shutting Down Production as Letitia Wright Recovers From On-Set Injury (Exclusive)

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/black-panther-wakanda-forever-shutting-down-production-as-letitia-wright-recovers-from-on-set-injury-exclusive-1235041911/

BY BORYS KIT NOVEMBER 5, 2021 1:20PM

Disney’s highly anticipated Black Panther sequel has hit a new speed bump.

 

The Marvel feature, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, is temporarily shutting down due to the severity of the injury sustained by star Letitia Wright, sources close to the production tell The Hollywood Reporter.

 

Wright was injured in late August while the film was shooting a sequence involving a stunt rig on-location in Boston. At the time, Marvel Studios said Wright’s injury would ultimately not impact the shooting schedule of the film.

 

After the injury, Wright left for London, where the star has been since, while the production shot around her character, Shuri, the sister of Black Panther T’Challa. Wright’s Shuri became a fan-favorite breakout in the 2018 blockbuster, which grossed $1.3 billion and won three Oscars. When star Chadwick Boseman died from cancer in August 2020, the character was elevated as the lead of the sequel.

 

Wakanda Forever had been filming mostly in Atlanta for the last two months. Director Ryan Coogler is said to have shot all footage that his crew is able to without Wright.

 

Sources say the production is taking the hiatus to reconfigure the shoot to get things back on track for an early 2022 restart. The shutdown is expected to begin the week of Thanksgiving.

 

“Letitia has been recovering in London since September from injuries sustained on the set of Black Panther 2 and is looking forward to returning to work early 2022,” a representative for Wright said in a statement to THR. “Letitia kindly asks that you keep her in your prayers.”

 

Marvel already pushed back the release of Wakanda Forever in October, moving it from July 8, 2022, to Nov. 11, 2022. At this time, insiders say, that new release date remains intact

 

[10:11] Hollywood Studio Projects Get Stricter About COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/business-news/hollywood-studio-projects-get-stricter-about-covid-19-vaccine-mandates-1235045153/

https://www.cbr.com/black-panther-2-letitia-wright-unvaxxed-delay-filming/

Logistical challenges await for studios that are working with stars who haven’t gotten the shot. Disney’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Letitia Wright — who portrays the lead Shuri, the sister of Black Panther T’Challa (the late Chadwick Boseman) — is not vaccinated, sources say. After sustaining an on-set injury in August, the Guyanese-born British actress went home to London.

 

Now, a return to the U.S. for a possible shoot in Atlanta, where Wakanda Forever is based, could be an issue. On Nov. 8, the CDC implemented rules that require all non-immigrant, non-citizen air travelers to the U.S. be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination status before boarding a plane. Wright is not a U.S. citizen. Disney declined to comment.

 

Wright’s U.K. rep pointed to a statement issued Nov. 5 to THR regarding the actress’ injury, prompting a shutdown of production that will begin the week of Thanksgiving (director Ryan Coogler is said to have filmed everything he can without her). The rep notes: “Letitia has been recovering in London since September from injuries sustained on the set of Black Panther 2 and is looking forward to returning to work early 2022. Letitia kindly asks that you keep her in your prayers.”

 

[12:30] Box Office: ‘Eternals’ Battles Its Way to $71M Opening, $161.7M Globally

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/eternals-box-office-opening-battles-1235043852/

BY PAMELA MCCLINTOCK NOVEMBER 7, 2021 8:41AM

Chloé Zhao’s Eternals battled its way to a $71 million debut from 4,090 theaters in North America — the low end of expectations — but fared better overseas for a worldwide start of $161.7 million, the second-biggest global opening of the pandemic era.

 

Eternals‘ domestic start is among the lowest of any of the 26 titles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — the last film to open to less was Ant-Man in 2015 ($57.2 million) — and lower than the two other Marvel/Disney movies released during the COVID-19 pandemic, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Black Widow.

 

The good news for Marvel Studios and Disney: Plenty of loyal fans still came out, and Eternals was able to make it past the $70 million mark (some analysts had it launching to $67 million).

 

And numbers were robust internationally, where the superhero offering opened to a better-than-expected $90.7 million from 46 material markets — excluding China and Russia, where a COVID surge has prompted another round of cinema closures.

 

Eternals opened No. 1 everywhere except for India. South Korea — where it scored the top opening of the pandemic era for a Western film — led with $14.1 million, followed by the U.K. ($7.1 million), France $6.7 million, Mexico ($5.7 million) and Australia ($5 million). Disney estimates that in like-for-like markets, Zhao’s film is pacing 76 percent ahead of Shang-Chi and 26 percent ahead of Black Widow.

 

Heading into the weekend, Disney and Marvel Studios were hopeful that Eternals would hit $75 million in North America.

 

At the end of the summer, Shang-Chi opened to a dazzling $94.7 million domestically over the four-day Labor Day weekend, including $75.4 million for the three days Friday-Sunday. Black Widow opened to $80.4 million in late spring even though it was also available in the home via Disney+ Premier Access.

 

Eternals received a B CinemaScore. The previous lowest was the first Thor (B+), while the rest have earned a variation of an A. Similar to the CinemaScore grade, Eternals presently has the lowest Rotten Tomatoes score — 49 percent — of any MCU offering.

 

Eternals is the third entry in Marvel’s Phase Four. The film stars a diverse ensemble cast, including Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lia McHugh, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff, Barry Keoghan, Don Lee, Harish Patel, Kit Harington, Salma Hayek and Angelina Jolie.

[17:26] Disney Removes Eternals Sex Scenes In International Markets

https://thedirect.com/article/eternals-disney-sexy-censor-removal-international-release

https://deadline.com/2021/11/eternals-banned-saudi-arabia-qatar-kuwait-bahrain-oman-1234867992/

 

 

Another first for the project is its introduction of sex scenes within the MCU . Chloé Zhao has spoken on this movie having the first true love story of the franchise , and that is evident in Ikaris and Sersi’s late-night escapade in the Babylonian desert.

 

This carnal outing, along with Phastos’ sexuality, has gotten the film in some hot water internationally. Eternals has been banned in certain markets because of this material with Disney denying requests to censor the project. Well, it seems an edited version of the film will see the light of day in some markets, but not others.

 

According to Deadline , an edited version of Eternals will release in various middle eastern markets like Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates. This censored cut will remove any instances of intimacy, whether they be hetero or gay. This practice is common in these markets.

 

While it is a bummer that Disney has to edit the film to work in some markets, it is not as bad as it seems. Some will look at this headline, see it as the House of Mouse caving into a certain part of the world, and take to their Twitter accounts. But that isn’t necessarily the case here.

 

Marvel Studios has already said it will not bend to a few requests of extreme censorship on the project. In places like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Oman, the studio was asked to make further cuts not only pertaining to the intimacy shown in the film, thus those nations were not issued distribution certificates.

 

Other middle eastern countries like Kuwait and Qatar have problems with depictions of prophets, gods, and other theological beings, so that is the reason the film will not be playing there.

[24:45] Hawkeye: Marvel’s unexpected, absurd Christmas show

Hawkeye Doesn’t Ignore Clint’s Dark Actions During the Blip

https://www.gamesradar.com/hawkeye-marvel-disney-plus-show-interview-director/

https://www.cbr.com/hawkeye-ronin-dark-side/

By Tara Bennett 

One of those things being Barton’s murderous past as the vigilante Ronin who went on a rampage after his whole family was blipped by Thanos. While the series doesn’t do an excessive deep dive of that time, Bert [aka Amber Templemore-Finlayson https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2134432/ of the “Bert and Bertie” duo https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bert_and_Bertie ] says it’s a part of who he is now and Renner didn’t want to discount it. 

 

“He wanted the darkness,” she says. “He wanted to go there. And there are moments that the Ronin Clint resurfaces. It’s very important to have those depths that you can explore, so that he can come out of it.”

 

[26:39] Ms. Marvel, Star Wars: Andor Set 2022 Disney+ Release Window

https://www.cbr.com/ms-marvel-star-wars-andor-set-2022-disney-release-window/

Disney+ has narrowed down a release window for two of its upcoming original series: Marvel Studios’ Ms. Marvel and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars spinoff Andor.

 

As revealed during The Walt Disney Company’s Q4 earnings call for 2021, Ms. Marvel and Andor are currently slated to premiere on Disney+ during Q4 of 2022. In other words, both shows will hit the streaming service sometime next year between October and December, inclusive.

 

One of many Disney+ original series set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ms. Marvel stars Iman Vellani as the Marvel Comics superhero Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel and is slated to run for six episodes. Vellani will reprise her role as Kamala Khan opposite Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel and Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau in the upcoming Marvel Studios film The Marvels, which is scheduled for release on Feb. 17, 2023. The Marvels serves as both a continuation of the Ms. Marvel Disney+ series and a sequel to the 2019 Larson-led film Captain Marvel.

 

In addition to Vellani, Ms. Marvel stars Aramis Knight as Kareem/Red Dagger, Saagar Shaikh as Amir Khan, Rish Shah as Kamran, Matt Lintz as Bruno Carrelli, Zenobia Shroff as Muneeba Khan, Mohan Kapur as Yusuf Khan and Laurel Marsden as Zoe Zimmer.

[3:48] Bill Murray on Ant-Man Rumors, The French Dispatch & Barging in on David Letterman’s Doc Appointment

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZ1UKE8K7dM

https://www.cbr.com/bill-murray-ant-man-3-mystery-role-comment/?utm_content=buffer7e99b&utm_medium=Social-Distribution&utm_source=CBR-TW&utm_campaign=CBR-TW

While promoting his upcoming movie The French Dispatch on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Murray “answered” some of Kimmel’s questions about his involvement in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. After Kimmel detailed Murray’s prior comments on joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the host asked plainly “Are you in the Ant-Man movie?” Murray dodged the subject by mentioning all the people that ARE confirmed for the movie, but that he isn’t at liberty to talk about himself.

 

On Kimmel, Murray poked fun at his past press experiences by only answering Jimmy’s questions after speaking through a pair of his own translators. The convoluted conversation left Jimmy laughing throughout its entirely. When he finally answered Kimmel’s question about a possible MCU appearance, Murray said “I am not at liberty to talk about it,” before turning to his translators and saying “But we can talk about it when we eat dinner.”

 

Another new addition to the cast of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is Jonathan Majors, who will be playing Kang the Conqueror. Majors originally appeared in the Disney+ series Loki playing a variant of Kang that created the TVA, “He Who Remains.” However, that version of Kang suffered an untimely end, raising questions about what Majors’ appearance in Quantumania will entail.

 

[7:21] Marvel Reveals Ant-Man’s Official MCU Timeline

https://www.instagram.com/p/CVvJXZMIRen/

Marvel Studios has shared an official graphic chronicling Ant-Man’s journey through the Marvel Cinematic Universe thus far.

 

On Instagram, the official Marvel UK account posted a timeline recounting all of Scott Lang/Ant-Man’s MCU appearances in chronological order. What makes this timeline …  is that it also charts Scott’s size throughout each film.

 

The timeline uses Scott’s normal size as a baseline, with the line on the graph dipping every time he used the Ant-Man suit to shrink and, eventually, climbing significantly when he used the suit to grow and become Giant-Man — a feat he first accomplished in Civil War. The line reaches its absolute lowest points whenever Scott visits the Quantum Realm, which he did in Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp and multiple times in Endgame. Meanwhile, it reaches an all-time high during his biggest foray as Giant-Man to date, which took place during Endgame’s climactic final battle.

The BBC version of “Inside Einstein’s Mind” is the YouTube link. The PBS voiceover version is better but the BBC version is free on YouTube.

 

The comment about Einstein’s math abilities is at 23:02 and 29:00.

 

His breakthrough is at 32:05 which was, ironically based on math equations, and is not e = mc^2 although that is the common vernacular.

 

 

[13:05] ‘Eternals’ Pulled From Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait in Apparent Ban

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-news/eternals-banned-saudi-arabia-qatar-kuwait-1235042241/

The all-star superhero film, which was due for release across the Gulf region on Nov. 11, is understood to have been met with a series of edit requests by the local censors, edits that THR has heard Disney was not willing to make.

 

The news emerged on Thursday, with Eternals having quietly been removed from websites in each of those countries. In the United Arab Emirates, however, the film is still listed as among the titles coming soon.

 

Sources suggest the decision was likely made over the inclusion of a same-sex couple in the film and the MCU’s first gay superhero. In one scene, the character, Phastos (played by Brian Tyree Henry), and his on-screen husband, Ben (Haaz Sleiman), share a passionate kiss.

 

Homosexuality is still officially illegal across the Gulf, and films containing anything related to LGBTQ issues are frequently pulled from release. Last year, the Pixar title Onward was banned across Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Saudi Arabia over a single line referencing a lesbian relationship

 

[16:11] Eternals Review Bomb Proves Marvel is On the Right Track

https://screenrant.com/eternals-movie-review-bomb-marvel-good-future-representation/

Review bombing is the practice of a subgroup of people providing a huge number of negative reviews to a movie before it has been released in an attempt to make producers think that public opinion is against them. 

 

Of the over 400 1-star reviews, many of them reference the fact that the movie includes LGBTQ+ representation and an on-screen gay kiss. Kumail Nanjiani, who plays Kingo in Eternals, tweeted in response to the Eternals review bomb to say, “Looks like we’re upsetting the right people.”

Chloe Zhao has said that she is hopeful that Marvel Studios will not allow the movie to be censored for overseas audiences. By including Phastos as a gay superhero and weathering the Eternals review bomb by standing behind the film, Disney and Marvel are putting their money where their mouth is on their repeated claims to want to introduce more diverse characters.

[26:37] NEW HAWKEYE TRAILER: Friends Partners | Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye | Disney+ (30 sec)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8Xvb-Dyjyw

https://www.cbr.com/hawkeye-disney-plus-kate-bishop-mother-promo/

Marvel Studios released a new promo for Hawkeye on Disney+ that offers up a new look at Kate Bishop’s mom, one of the series’ potential villains.

In the source material, Eleonor Bishop is Kate’s long-lost mother. It was thought that she died when Kate was a child, only for it to later be revealed in Kelly Thompson and Leonardo Romero’s Hawkeye run that she had survived and begun financing criminal activities. Eleonor’s activities ended up bringing her into the crosshairs of Kate, as the younger Hawkeye was pursuing her longtime foe, Madame Masque, who was under Eleanor’s employ. With rumors swirling that Madame Masque will be featured in Hawkeye, Farmiga’s heel turn may have been hidden in plain sight.

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/movies/movie-features/evangeline-lilly-ant-man-wasp-quantumania-1235030349/

Do you still have a ways to go on Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania?

 

We’re just a little over halfway through. And I will say that after I read the script of the film, I did have a kind of eureka moment; I said to Peyton [Reed], “Oh my God, I think I finally get her.” (Laughs.) Three or four films in, I thought, “I think I get it now.” So I’m hoping that when we come to wrap and when I see the movie, I’m going to know the difference. But I don’t think anyone else will. I think I’m a good bluffer. That’s what I do for a living. But I know the difference and I’m hopeful that in this one, I’ll feel like I can watch it and go, “Yeah, you had a better handle on her in this one than you ever have before.” That’s my goal, anyway. That’s my hope.

[7:45] Brand new casting indicates Bill Murray will join the MCU in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

https://www.thecosmiccircus.com/brand-new-casting-indicates-bill-murray-will-join-the-mcu-in-ant-man-and-the-wasp-quantumania/

Thanks to a brand new casting listing on Mandy.com, we see that John Townsend has been cast as a photo double on the production of “Dust Bunny.” Dust Bunny is the production name for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. What’s interesting is the actor name that he is posing as a photo double for. His casting indicates that Mr. Townsend is acting as a photo double on that production for the iconic 80s actor: Bill Murray. Murray’s role at this time, however, is currently undisclosed. What’s interesting about this is that Peyton Reed is actually a fan of Murray’s based on this tweet from earlier in the year.

[10:57] Armor Wars Will Explore War Machine’s Past and Future

https://www.cbr.com/armor-wars-explore-war-machine-past-and-future/

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rs4Q6XLPrzA

Don Cheadle discussed his upcoming solo Disney+ series, Armor Wars, and how it will flesh out Rhodey beyond his connection to Tony Stark.

 

The actor spoke to ACE Universe about the show, which has yet to land a release date on the streaming service. Announced back in December, Armor Wars will adapt the popular Marvel Comics story with a twist: Iron Man won’t be part of it. Instead, the series will explore the Armored Avenger’s best friend and sidekick.

 

“Well, I think that the most exciting part is yet to come,” Cheadle said. “I think we don’t really have a super-strong idea of who he is really outside of that, sort of, bubble of the Avengers. Out of necessarily his friendship with Tony. And now he’s going to kind of be untethered from all of that. So it’s an opportunity to really discover who he is in a way that we have not had before; with concentrated time and focus on Rhodey and Rhodey’s journey, and with, hopefully, some stuff about his past. And teeing up some things about his potential future. Who knows how long this Marvel thing goes. It seems kinda unending. We might all die on set one day.”

 

“What’s most exciting is yet to come, and I think those kinds of things were hinted at in Endgame, you know, where this character might go, and things that may be in the offing for him,” Cheadle continued. “It’s very early in the process of Armor Wars. We just hired my boy Yassir [Lester], which I’m very excited about, [he] wrote on Black Monday. [I’ve] become really good friends with him and close with him. Great guy. A lot of great ideas. But honestly, we’re just really trying to crack the spine of what it’s going to be and chop it up. I couldn’t really give you the answers if you asked them because we’re super in the clay mode right now.”

 

[19:17] Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur

https://www.marvel.com/articles/tv-shows/disney-channel-moon-girl-devil-dinosaur-cast

https://twitter.com/DisneyTVANews/status/1447981238577422345

 

We previously revealed that the Disney Channel announced Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur animated series at D23 2019. We’re now excited to share that they’ve found their cast!

Actress and singer Diamond White will star as Lunella Lafayette (aka Moon Girl) in the channel’s highly anticipated animated series, slated to premiere in 2022.

But that’s not all; also joining the lead cast are:

  • Alfre Woodard (Marvel’s Luke Cage) as Lunella’s grandmother, Mimi
  • Libe Barer as Lunella’s best friend and manager, Casey
  • Sasheer Zamata as Lunella’s mom, Adria
  • Jermaine Fowler as Lunella’s dad, James Jr.
  • Fred Tatasciore (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) as the one-and-only Devil Dinosaur
  • Gary Anthony Williams as Lunella’s grandfather, Pops.

Series executive producer Laurence Fishburne (Ant-Man and The Wasp) will voice the recurring role of The Beyonder, a curious and mischievous trickster.

 

[25:08] RUMOR: Shang-Chi Spinoff Series Centered on Xialing’s Ten Rings in Development

https://www.cbr.com/rumor-shang-chi-spinoff-in-development/

https://thedirect.com/article/marvel-shang-chi-disney-plus-spin-off-ten-rings-sister-rumors

Source 1: While most Marvel Cinematic Universe fans expected to see Xialing and the Ten Rings in a Shang-Chi sequel, a new report suggests there are other plans in store. Scooper Daniel Richtman, also known as DanielRPK, seemingly revealed that a Ten Rings series is in development at Disney+ with Zhang’s Xialing as the series lead.

 

Source 2: Daniel Richtman , a reliable scooper, shared on his Patreon that a spinoff featuring the Ten Rings organization from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is in development over at Marvel Studios. Richtman also revealed that Meng’er Zhang’s Xialing would serve as the lead character for the planned spinoff series, which, if officially greenlit, would stream on Disney+.

 

[28:23] What If…? Writer Explains Why [SPOILER] Isn’t a Plot Hole at All

https://www.cbr.com/what-if-ultron-infinity-stones-not-plot-hole/

https://twitter.com/TheAshBradley/status/1445078626697760770

 

Bradley’s tweet essentially explains the stones power Ultron himself, and it’s therefore Ultron’s own power that has allowed him to wreak havoc across the multiverse, not the stones, and therefore sidesteps the issue of just where one universe’s Infinity Stones would have any power.

 

[31:02] RUMOR: Howard the Duck Animated Series In the Works

https://www.cbr.com/howard-the-duck-animated-series-rumor/

According to an anonymous 4Chan user, Disney is in the early stages of development on a cartoon show starring Howard. It will be one of the first projects by the recently launched Marvel Studios Animation and will star see Seth Green reprise his role as the title character. Additionally, Disney is set to officially reveal the show at their Disney+ Day event on Nov. 12 and it is due to release in 2024. This should all be taken with a grain of salt, since the source makes the validity of the claim questionable.

https://www.cbr.com/marvel-steven-deknight-on-cb-cebulski/

Steven DeKnight, a writer and executive producer on Season 1 of Netflix’s Daredevil, says he has no plans to work with Marvel until the company addresses the Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski’s “Akira Yoshida” controversy.

 

While this news made headlines in 2017, DeKnight — who’s largely preoccupied with his film and television work — only recently learned about it when it began making the rounds again on Twitter. “How does this man still have a job? Completely unacceptable,” DeKnight tweeted. “I had no idea. I love writing for Marvel comics, but this changes the equation. Drastically. There are so many great editors there. To allow a man who climbed to the top through cultural identity theft to remain in that position is unconscionable.”

in the comics they explain that there’s something beyond marvel comics. i dont know what they call it. lets call it omni-universe.

in another multiverse is all of the DC comics. all of the multiverses are contained in omni-universe. so i guess in this thinking, yes. there is another marvel MCU multiverse where the watcher doesn’t do a bad touch.

Scarlett Johansson, Disney Settle Explosive ‘Black Widow’ Lawsuit

https://youtu.be/XaJ5zfxWDv0

Scarlett Johansson and Disney have settled a breach of contract lawsuit over the star’s Black Widow payday, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

 

Disney Studios chairman Alan Bergman added: “I’m very pleased that we have been able to come to a mutual agreement with Scarlett Johansson regarding Black Widow. We appreciate her contributions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and look forward to working together on a number of upcoming projects, including Disney’s Tower of Terror.”

 

“I am happy to have resolved our differences with Disney,” said Johansson in a statement released Thursday. “I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve done together over the years and have greatly enjoyed my creative relationship with the team. I look forward to continuing our collaboration in years to come.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special Involves a Major New MCU Character

James Gunn @JamesGunn

In my incredibly subjective & admittedly often odd opinion, we’ll be introducing one of the greatest MCU characters of all time. #GotGHolidaySpecial

 

https://twitter.com/JamesGunn/status/1444366802411270159

 

https://www.cbr.com/guardians-of-the-galaxy-holiday-special-new-mcu-character/

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is a new in-canon adventure that shows the Guardians during the holiday season. Director James Gunn, who helmed the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films, will be returning for the roughly 40-minute short, which he says will be required viewing for fans of the franchise. Now, Gunn has expanded on his promotion for the special to reveal that it will also be “introducing one of the greatest MCU characters of all time.”

 

Before the Guardians of the Galaxy take back the spotlight in their special, they’ll be tagging along in Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder. The film is expected to come out on May 6, 2022 and features the remaining Guardians as supporting characters, with Gunn communicating with Waititi to ensure that the characters were handled consistently ahead of their next big screen outing.

 

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special arrives on Disney+ in 2022, while Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 arrives in theaters May 23, 2023.

 

 

Inside Marvel’s ‘What If…?’ Finale, Season 2 Plans and the T’Challa Spinoff That Never Was

https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/marvel-what-if-season-1-finale-tchalla-spin-off-chadwick-boseman-1235082366/

“There was planning to have Star Lord T’Challa spin off into his own show,” [Driector Bryan] Andrews tells Variety. “We were all very excited. We know [Chadwick] would have loved it, too.”

 

There’s also a brief moment in the finale where we meet an alternate version of Gamora with a sort of space Tony Stark. Will we get to see more of that universe in Season 2?

 

Bradley: That’s a definite yes. Basically what happened was we originally had an episode planned for earlier in the season that was a fun, light-hearted, living, breathing Tony Stark-centric episode with Gamora. However, due to the COVID pandemic, one of our animation houses was hit incredibly hard, and the episode needed to be pushed into Season 2, because it would not be finished in time. Given everything that we’ve all went through over the past two years, pushing an episode of television is absolutely nothing in comparison. And we understood. We hope fans enjoy the ride next year.

 

(2 Part Story)

Marvel’s What If…? team promises ‘resolution’ in season finale and teases season 2

https://ew.com/tv/marvels-what-if-season-1-finale-ac-bradley-bryan-andrews/

…At least we know season 2 is coming since Bradley says that all the episodes of next season have already been written. “Going into the second season, we’re sticking with anthology form, and it’s going to be all-new stories, lots of fun, new heroes, and pulling more from Phase Four than we were obviously able to this season,” she says. “Hopefully, we’ll see hints of Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Black Widow characters. The fun of What If…? is that we get to explore the entire infinite multiverse, so we try and bounce around as much as we can. I want to play with all these characters, and as much as I love Captain Carter, we’ve got to share the love. I’m very excited to show new worlds, new heroes.”

 

Bradley also hints that while many of season 1’s episodes featured “big, let’s end the world, let’s kill everyone” arcs, season 2 episodes will “focus a lot more on the character stories and these heroes and showing a different side of them that people don’t expect and hopefully they can relate to.”

 

“We’re not a show that’s designed to set up Avengers 5,” she adds. “It’s supposed to be just about entertainment and what these heroes mean to us. When I took the job, one of my rules was let’s be free. We’re in the multiverse — we should be as free as can be and go and run into the wild, into the stories the movies will never do, into the stories the TV shows will never do, and show both Disney and the fans all the possibilities of these characters.”

What If…? Head Writer Teases Gamora “Prequel” Episode in Season 2

https://comicbook.com/marvel/news/what-if-gamora-episode-season-2-prequel-spoilers/

As Bradley explained in an exclusive interview with ComicBook.com, the episode recounting those versions of Tony and Gamora ended up being delayed due to production problems tied to the COVID-19 pandemic. But as Bradley reassured, that story is coming at some point in the series’ second season, as a sort of “prequel” for her appearance in the finale.

 

“We definitely will,” Bradley said, when asked if we’ll see more of Gamora. “What happened with the Gamora episode, there was originally supposed to be — early on in the season — a Tony and Gamora-centric episode. However, due to COVID and production delays, one of our amazing, amazing animation houses around the globe got hit pretty hard by the pandemic. And we were left with two choices: push the entire season to later this year, or push this one episode to Season 2. We made the choice to push that episode to Season 2, and hoped that seeing Gamora in the finale serves as a teaser for what is to come. In season two, it’ll almost be like a little bit of a prequel, we’ll see how Tony and Gamora became friends, because those two don’t even interact in the main MCU universe.”

 

“Given all the upheaval that we’ve been through in the past two years, pushing an episode is nothing, and we completely understand,” Bradley continued. “Our animation houses have been absolute rock stars in pulling off this show.”

‘WandaVision’ Spinoff Starring Kathryn Hahn in the Works at Disney Plus (EXCLUSIVE)

https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/wandavision-spinoff-kathryn-hahn-1235082445/

A “WandaVision” spinoff starring Kathryn Hahn is in development at Disney Plus from Marvel Studios, Variety has learned exclusively from sources.

 

Hahn would reprise the role of Agatha Harkness in the series, which is described by sources as a dark comedy, though exact plot details remain under wraps. “WandaVision” head writer Jac Schaeffer would serve as the writer and executive producer on the project. Should the spinoff go forward, it would be the first project Schaeffer has set up with Marvel since she signed an overall deal with them and 20th Television in May.

PRIVATE MESSAGE:

 

@BEJT (MCU Wiki)

 

In terms of defining MCU canon – it’s not something I had thought to do in the letter, again in large part due to this being written directly to Marvel Studios. But by this I mean what I would believe is the general understood definition: An official part of MCU continuity. Meaning, an official part of the continuity of the fictional universes which officially comprise the MCU: Earth-199999 and its adjacent universes confirmed as parts of the franchise. (In the case of the shows, the letter is specifically pleading for them to remain as Earth-199999, with the issue of shunting them to another universe addressed.)

MCU – MARVEL STUDIOS

 

Marvel Suing to Keep Rights to ‘Avengers’ Characters From Copyright Termination

https://www.theverge.com/platform/amp/2021/9/24/22691842/disney-marvel-sues-comic-artist-iron-man-avengers

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/business-news/marvel-suing-avengers-copyright-termination-1235020110/

Disney’s Marvel unit is suing to hold on to full control of Avengers characters including Iron Man, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Falcon, Thor and others.

 

The complaints, which The Hollywood Reporter has obtained, come against the heirs of some late comic book geniuses including Stan Lee, Steve Ditko and Gene Colan. The suits seek declaratory relief that these blockbuster characters are ineligible for copyright termination as works made for hire. If Marvel loses, Disney would have to share ownership of characters worth billions.

 

Marvel Studios Has Over 30 Projects in Active Development

https://www.cbr.com/marvel-studios-30-plus-projects-in-development/

When veteran Marvel Studios producer Victoria Alonso was asked by 221radio if the company had 35 projects in the works, Alonso laughingly replied, “We are currently working on 31 projects, don’t add 4 more, please.” If that sounds like a lot to take on at once, Alonso agrees. Yet, the producer went on to assure fans that the studio is prepared for some hit-or-miss projects so long as they stay true to the human characters and interconnectedness of the MCU.

 

“It is a question about how are we handling multiple plates in the air at the same time,” Alonso continued, “and the biggest thing is that sometimes the plates fall, and, you know, what are you going to do then? We want people to understand that the idea that we have, to tell these connected stories, it is important that the world knows that the characters we create, their stories have to do with how humans interact with each other.”

Marvel’s What If…? team reveals season 1 finale intel: There’s ‘a bigger plan’

AC Bradley Admits … We kill Tony a LOT

https://ew.com/tv/marvel-what-if-ac-bradley-bryan-andrews-episode-8/

Season 1 was originally meant to be 10 episodes, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic one of those episodes had to be pushed to season 2, and Bradley says the delayed episode helped balance the other, darker stories. “Our 10th episode was a more light, upbeat Tony Stark episode,” she says. “I noticed on Twitter we’re getting a lot of crap for killing Tony a lot. He has become the Kenny of the What If…? universe by accident.”

 

The episodes have mirrored the comics by ending on cliffhangers that each tease a larger story. And it seems that all of those threads may actually come together in the season’s final episode. It’s also possible that the already announced second season could follow up on certain stories, while new methods of remotely making animated series may help the show to avoid the issues the pandemic has posed and craft longer episodes. For now, however, the show does still have one limit: the MCU.

 

What If…? Episodes Are Shorter than Planned Because of COVID

https://deadline.com/2021/09/what-if-marvel-series-a-c-bradley-podcast-interview-1234843778/

https://www.cbr.com/marvel-what-if-short-runtime-covid/

“What If…? comics ended abruptly and really dark to prove that the main timeline is the better timeline,” Bradley said. “We’ve used that as our reason to cut stories off a little bit shorter. All these episodes could have been 45 minutes. Some of the animatics were 35 minutes, but due to animation and Covid, we cut them a little bit shorter than we would have liked.”

 

Disney+ Pushes Ms. Marvel to 2022

https://variety.com/lists/marvel-studios-release-schedule/

https://www.cbr.com/disney-plus-ms-marvel-2022/

https://twitter.com/adambvary/status/1440844586016927744

Variety Senior Entertainment Writer Adam B. Vary recently posted an update regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s release schedule. “I’ve confirmed what was obvious to most Marvel Studios observers: [Ms. Marvel] has moved from a late 2021 release on Disney Plus to 2022,” Vary tweeted.

 

This is not the first report indicating Ms. Marvel’s debut shift. TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich previously suggested the series had been delayed until early a 2022 delay. Film insider Amit Chaudhari recently stated that the series was set to hit Disney+ in February.

 

 

Disney+ Removes Hayley Atwell’s Agent Carter Short Film

https://thedirect.com/article/disney-plus-removal-hayley-atwell-agent-carter-short-film

Marvel Studios’ Agent Carter One-Shot was completely removed from Disney+, seemingly across all territories.

 

In mid-September 2021, Marvel Studios’ Agent Carter One-Shot was added to Disney+ within its own special section/page . Beforehand, the short could only be found in Iron Man 3 ‘s EXTRAS section; Agent Carter has been removed there as well.

 

There doesn’t seem to be any clear indication as to why Disney+ would remove a section solely dedicated to the Agent Carter One-Shot.

 

The One-Shot originally appeared on the 2013 DVD and digital release of Iron Man 3 and gave some brief insight into how Peggy eventually started up what viewers knew as SHIELD. From there, the Agent Carter ABC show was also born, spanning two seasons on the television network .

 

On its own, the One-Shot exemplifies the brilliance of Atwell’s character; it reminds viewers of why she is now a returning force to the franchise and re-emphasizes her importance to MCU lore as a whole .

 

It’s possible that its removal could have been nothing more than in preparation for bigger and better things to come for Peggy; maybe the streaming service pulled the gun and wants to highlight her more so down the line, possibly aligning with the Season 1 finale of What If…? .

 

Video Games

 

https://gamerant.com/marvel-vs-capcom-2-disney-capcom-revival-discussion-report/

This campaign to bring back Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 was started by Maximilian Dood, a YouTuber whose content revolves around fighting games. He started the campaign earlier this year under “#FREEMVC2” in order to gather support to hopefully re-release the crossover game onto modern systems. This caught the attention of Digital Eclipse, a studio that has worked with both Disney and Capcom to remaster some of its old games. Studio head Mike Mika showed his support for re-releasing the game, along with giving the game a proper remaster treatment. In a recent interview with Shacknews, Mika brings further thoughts to the table regarding how this re-release could be possible.

DISCORD

Beard Watch 2021 — 09/24/2021

Okay, this week’s What If… I think I’m officially over this series.

 

Beard Watch 2021 — 09/25/2021

Space-god frat boy holds intergalactic kegger does not make for a good story to me.

 

StargatePioneer — 09/25/2021

Overall the series is a light hearted campy ride that hits some weeks and misses in other episodes. Not to mention a few tragic stories along the way too. But I certainly would not take any of it too seriously. This week’s episode especially was meant more as a fun dalliance than any other with events that could only be told via a cartoon IMO.

 

But all this is from a guy who like The Phantom Menace, dislikes Empire Strikes Back and is often wrong. So I might just be drinking the cool aid.

 

Erasure (Too Lazy !!) — 09/26/2021

That’s on this was one of my favorite episodes too along with T’Challa Star Lord. And wow someone else who likes the Phantom Menace and Empire not so much Others do exist  

TPM is one of my highest ranked SW films while ESB is one of my lowest.

 

Beard Watch 2021 — Today at 5:34 PM

Interesting finale. Probably the best ep of the series. Though it raises some questions about how.things should have gone during infinity war…

MCU Wiki Community Urges Marvel Studios to Keep Past TV Shows Canon

A Passionate and Concerned Appeal for the Preservation of Marvel Cinematic Universe Television Canon, from a Devoted Fan

https://www.cbr.com/mcu-wiki-marvel-tv-canon-letter/

https://twitter.com/bejt_t/status/1437794800103796742

Written by MCU Wiki Admin/User: +BEJT

 

I regret only reaching out in appeal, but unfortunately while the praises of Marvel Studios are always heard, Marvel Television fans are feeling unheard.

 

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Marvel’s Agent Carter, Marvel’s Daredevil, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Luke Cage, Marvel’s Iron Fist, Marvel’s The Defenders, Marvel’s Inhumans, Marvel’s The Punisher, Marvel’s Runaways, Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger, and Helstrom* comprise 29 seasons of television/386 episodes/over 300 hours, making up a massive portion of the official Marvel Cinematic Universe (as of the end of 2020, approximately 86% of it by runtime**).

 

 

The Incidents That Have Caused Increasing Concern:

 

…I was already scared by 2019 of how Captain Marvel would handle Coulson’s history. Fortunately, the excellent film did not provide many significant problems, but this felt only like luck, since the film did not appear to take Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. into account: seemingly implying that Fury and Coulson barely knew each other in 1995 (the show established Fury recruited and supervised Coulson in 1982), and having Coulson mention the Kree (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 1 involved him not knowing who the Kree were – fortunately, the T.A.H.I.T.I. protocol erased Coulson’s memory of everything to do with his resurrection, and with Kree being a key part, they would naturally have also been wiped).

 

The perfect casting of Mahershala Ali as Blade also unfortunately further drove the false narrative online, with people claiming that it meant the shows were “confirmed” non-canon due to Ali already having an MCU role as Cottonmouth. While this was an Internet overreaction given there are other examples of dual casting, the dual casting quirk not being acknowledged felt concerning.

 

It admittedly did not help that Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season 6 set itself a year after Avengers: Infinity War and Marvel’s Runaways: Season 3 took its timeline through to post-Avengers: Infinity War 2018 dates, yet unfortunately neither referenced the Snap.

 

A 2019 quote from Mr. Feige, which fairly described the Disney+ shows as the first time TV would truly connect back and forth with the films, was falsely run by sites as “confirmation” that the other shows were not part of the MCU. This quote has been weaponised and referenced ad nauseum for 2 years.

 

The Darkhold would appear in WandaVision with no link to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D./Marvel’s Runaways

 

The fan reaction to the Darkhold and Mobius scenes has also led to upsetting incidents where creators such as Jac Schaeffer and Michael Waldron are asked questions they are seemingly, understandably, not informed to answer, giving confused and accidentally damaging quotes.

 

Cannon Impact:

 

There are other great Marvel shows, e.g. Legion, but these have nowhere near the power or lasting impact in my heart simply by virtue of not being part of this world.

 

The MCU family is such a wonderful thing, but right now, Television-inclusive fans don’t feel like we’re welcome in that family anymore.

 

Mooted “Possibilities”

 

If the Inhuman Royal Family needed to be rebooted within the MCU… it would not be the worst thing imaginable.

 

The idea of being an extricable part of the MCU does not apply to Marvel’s Iron Fist

 

 

 

There is precedent with Star Wars for wiping canon, but there it was motivated by a need to free the storytelling. The Marvel Television MCU shows are not particularly restrictive. Most things can be picked up on fairly easily, perhaps at most needing a couple of throwaway setup lines.

 

Alternate Universe: The shows aren’t novelty What If…? type stories, e.g. “What If… Phil Coulson Were Resurrected?”, made to be a separate little alternate story – but born and bred as parts of building, developing, growing, interweaving the beautiful main MCU world and timeline.

 

Some Hopes

Recently, Mr. Feige made the comment, “Everything is on the board. That’s one of the fun things about the comics is that characters would appear and disappear and come and go […] There are some great characters and actors from those shows.” This exciting quote bears similarity to previous remarks of Mr. Feige’s, such as, “All of those things inhabit, however far on the outskirts, the same continuity, so certainly that opportunity [to integrate those characters] exists.”

 

Eternals Earns PG-13 Rating

https://www.filmratings.com/Search?filmTitle=eternals&x=0&y=0

https://www.cbr.com/marvel-eternals-rating-description/

FilmRatings.com’s breakdown of the rating describes Eternals as including “fantasy violence and action, some language and brief sexuality.” It’s the latter element that has fans raising their eyebrows, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s movies having avoided sexual content since Disney acquired Marvel Entertainment in 2009.

 

Unlike MCU movies past, romance is said to play a key role in the film’s narrative. It even features a love triangle between on-again, off-again Eternal couple Ikaris (Richard Madden) and Sersi (Gemma Chan) and Dane Whitman (Kit Harington), the mortal human who’s dating Sersi when the movie picks up in the present.

 

The “brief sexuality” could also allude to a scene with Thena (Angelina Jolie), an Eternal warrior who becomes romantically involved with the Deviant Kro in Marvel’s comics books. Perhaps tellingly, the final Eternals trailer shows Kro ensnaring Thena with his tendril-like appendages in an oddly intimate fashion, possibly alluding to the pair being in love.

 

Even more intriguing, Eternals is confirmed to include an onscreen kiss between the Eternal Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry) and his husband (Haaz Sleiman), which begs the question: will the movie be daring enough to feature a sexual moment involving a queer couple? It seems unlikely, given the MPAA’s restrictive attitude towards LGBTQ+ content, but that won’t stop fans from hoping anyway.

 

Disney+

 

November 12th, 2021: First Ever Disney+ Day

https://thewaltdisneycompany.com/the-walt-disney-company-celebrates-disney-day-on-november-12-to-thank-subscribers-with-new-content-fan-experiences-and-more/

https://www.cbr.com/disney-plus-mcu-future-special/

https://screenrant.com/jungle-cruise-movie-streaming-release-date-disney-plus/

 

On Friday, November 12, The Walt Disney Company will host Disney+ Day, a global celebration that will come to life across all dimensions of the Company. Subscribers to Disney+ will be treated to new content releases across the service’s iconic brands, Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, and Star in international markets, along with a special presentation on Disney+ for fans with sneak peeks into what’s to come.

 

Disney+ Day will feature content premieres from all of the marquee brands on service, including:

  • The streaming premiere of Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings
  • A special celebrating the Marvel Cinematic Universe on Disney+ with an exciting look towards the future

 

The special was teased as part of Disney’s massive lineup for Disney+ Day. Outside of celebrating current MCU titles on the service, the special will also give fans an “exciting look forwards the future.” With Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk having all completed production, and Moon Knight nearing the end of filming, there’s plenty for the service to tease. The company promises subscribers will be treated to “breaking news, first looks, new trailers, exclusive clips, and appearances from Disney+ creators and stars.”

 

Along with the MCU special, Disney+ Day will serve as the streaming premieres of Marvel Studios’ Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Disney’s Jungle Cruise. For those looking for something not Marvel-related on Disney+, the company has promised new content for all of its other major brands, including Pixar, Star Wars and National Geographic.

HULU Series

 

Marvel’s Hit-Monkey Animated Series Finally Has a Release Date

An exclusive look at 47 of fall 2021’s new and returning shows

            Hit Monkey (Nov. 17, Hulu)

https://www.cbr.com/marvel-hit-monkey-animated-series-first-look-release-date/

https://ew.com/tv/fall-2021-tv-preview-photos/

Marvel’s Hit-Monkey adaptation on Hulu is no longer in limbo, as the animated series has an official release date — along with a first look.

 

As part of its preview of upcoming fall TV shows, Entertainment Weekly casually confirmed that Marvel’s Hit-Monkey is not only a go but it’s coming on Nov. 17 to Hulu. The long-in-development series has been relatively quiet since it was first announced as part of a suite of adult animated shows for Hulu, but fans can now expect it soon. Along with the release date, Hulu shared the first image from the show, featuring the titular assassin and his incorporeal sidekick. Check it out:

 

Revenge can be sweet — and sometimes fuzzy. Based on the Marvel comic and cre­ated by Josh Gordon and Will Speck, this darkly comedic se­ries follows a Japanese snow macaque whose clan meets a stranded hitman, Bryce (Jason Sudeikis), and nurses him back to health. But when Bryce bites the dust, it’s up to the titular simian (guided by Bryce’s ghost) to follow in his assassin footsteps and seek vengeance. “He’s a character who is violent and temper­ amental but also deeply wounded and innocent,” says Gordon. —Devan Coggan

Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D./Agent Carter

 

Marvel One-Shot “Agent Carter” Becomes Easier To Find On Disney+

https://whatsondisneyplus.com/marvel-one-shot-agent-carter-becomes-easier-to-find-on-disney/

Following the release of the Marvel One-Shot “All Hail The King” on Disney+, Disney+ has made a little reshuffle and moved out the Agent Carter short into its own listing, having previously been found in the “Iron Man 3” extra section.

 

In the short, we see British operative Peggy Carter joining the nascent S.H.I.E.L.D. organization. As she searches for the “Zodiac” key, Agent Carter also battles her misogynistic, bureaucratic boss, Agent Flynn. It takes place after the main events of Captain America: The First Avenger.

 

The short was originally released in 2013 and was released originally on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray/DVD. It stars Hayley Atwell, Bradley Whitford, Dominic Cooper, Shane Black, Neal McDonough, and Tim Trobec.

 

Currently, the short has only been moved into its own listing in some countries, including the US, Canada and Australia.

 

Moving the short out from the extras section makes sense for multiple reasons, mainly to make it easier for people to find it. While adding extra content like deleted scenes or behind-the-scenes footage makes more sense to include in that section. Bonus features that don’t have any real connection bar a home media physical release, are much more useful listed separately.

 

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Chloe Bennet shuts down rumors about her reprising her role as Quake for Marvel’s Secret Invasion series on Disney+.

https://www.instagram.com/chloebennet/

https://www.cbr.com/secret-invasion-chloe-bennet-debunks-quake-rumors/

Bennet commented on the persistent rumors during a recent Instagram story, noting, “I have avoided saying anything like this in general, on social media or whatever, because I thought maybe it would blow over, but it has not. I am in no way attached or involved, even at all or a little bit, in the Secret Invasion Marvel thing. I honestly don’t even know really what that is… I am only coming on here to say this because it has gotten to the point that every day I’m getting hundreds of messages about this… I’m now getting like approached in person. Today it was in the tampon aisle at Target… So I figured I would just clear the air.”

https://variety.com/2021/film/news/eternals-encanto-west-side-story-last-duel-theaters-disney-1235061504/

 

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings avoided the same box office collapse the Black Widow suffered in its second weekend at the box office. Shang-Chi earned a total of $34.7 million domestically according to Box Office Mojo in its second box office weekend falling only 54% from it’s premiere weekend. Shang-Chi has now earned $144.5M domestically and $259M worldwide. In comparison Black Widow fell 68% in its second box office weekend but benefited from a healthy $60M from Disney+ premiere sales in its premiere weekend.

 

Other Disney second-weekend drops have been varied, with “Jungle Cruise” shedding 55%, “Cruella” 49% and “Free Guy” 35%. Universal’s “F9,” another pandemic box office success, opened to $70 million in June and dropped 57% to $30.1 million in its second frame.

 

Pre-pandemic Marvel releases have traditionally held well in their second weekends: “Avengers: Endgame” declined by 59%, “Captain Marvel” by 56%, “Thor: Ragnarok” by 54%, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2″ by 56%, “Doctor Strange” by 50% and “Ant-Man” by 57%. “Black Panther” enjoyed the most slight second-weekend drop in 2018, with just 45% after opening to a massive $202 million over Presidents Day weekend.

 

The strength of Shang-Chi’s Labor Day weekend opening seems to have inspired Disney to commit to debuting its remaining theatrical releases exclusively in theaters for the rest of the year, including Marvel Studios’ Eternals. Disney announced that the rest of its domestic release slate for the year will honor a theatrical window ranging from a minimum of 30-45 days per film although the 30 day window only applies to Encanto according to the exclusive reported by Variety. The term “minimum” seems to point to the fact that Disney could extend that 30-45 day window should they prove to be hits and there is an audience to attend in person.

Marvel Announces Four Unknown Films Scheduled for 2024

https://collider.com/new-marvel-movies-coming-in-2024/

 

Walt Disney Studios has updated its upcoming release schedule, which now includes four untitled Marvel films dated for 2024. These include newly announced films scheduled for February 16th, May 3rd, July 26th, and November 8th.

 

Marvel has previously announced all of its movies on the way through Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, scheduled for May 5, 2023. After Guardians, there are still three other untitled Marvel films planned for the year, however, the addition of four more unknown Marvel films in 2024 and their release dates is entirely new.

 

Possible films to fill those slots that are currently in development and without a known release schedule include

  • Fantastic Four
  • Deadpool 3
  • Blade
  • Avengers-Level Team up to end the phase (not confirmed in development)
    • Could be linked to Russo Brothers story from last week
  • Captain America Sequel
  • Possible X-Men

Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra is insisting Spider-Man: Far From Home, Venom: Let There Be Carnage and other blockbusters will retain their theater exclusivity window and not go straight-to-streaming.

 

“There is a higher bar theatrically to get films into theaters so you will probably not see as many films going directly to theaters,” Vinciquerra said during a media conference. He conceded that some of Sony’s smaller films might not be viable for theatrical release in the current climate but promised, “We have about 12 to 15 major films a year distributed to theaters and will do the same going forward.”

 

Vinciquerra pointed out the rise in piracy rates since other studios decided to implement day-and-date streaming releases, labeling it “a big concern” moving forward. The executive noted that Sony is in a unique position as it does not have a streaming service of its own, instead acting as an “arms dealer” in the ongoing streaming wars, able to put its content up for auction. He was quick to clarify, “But you won’t see our major films go that way.”

 

Sony recently changed the name of its Spider-Man franchise from the Sony Universe of Marvel Characters to Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, suggesting it has larger plans for the web-slinger moving forward. With rumors hinting at a live-action Spider-Verse crossover, the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home could potentially bridge the gap between Sony’s animated and live-action Spider-Man franchises by incorporating Miles Morales.

What If…? Writer Regrets One Thing About Doctor Strange Episode

https://screenrant.com/what-if-doctor-strange-episode-4-writer-regret/

“When you’re writing animation, you’re writing so far into the future that you can’t think four years down the line. That Doctor Strange episode, I wrote in February of 2019. I think I should’ve called it a Nexus Point instead of an Absolute Point. The Loki scripts weren’t even written yet, so that animatic locked before Loki even finished their scripts because you’re always writing about two years ahead of animation. It’s kind of intense and insane.”

 The Ant-Man appearance in What If… ZOMBIES!? very much reminded me of Nathan Fillion (and later Alan Tudyk) in Santa Clarita Diet.

 Regarding Shuma-Gorath, I think the Dr. Strange episode was a more-or-less direct take on a run in the comics when Strange used dark magic to absorb the powers of other sorcerers & multiple demons, ultimately consuming Shuma-Gorath itself.
