Dune News:

DCEU News

Marvel News

  • A new Super Bowl spot for Black Widow has been released.
  • A combined look at the three upcoming Marvel shows for Disney+ has been released as a Super Bowl Spot. This includes Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki. Note the TVA logo (Time Variance Authority) on Loki’s jacket. The TVA is a group of timeline monitors in Marvel that have the ability to prune timelines if they prove too dangerous to exist.
  • During Disney’s quarterly earnings call, Bob Iger claimed “There are seven other Marvel series in various stages of development or pre-production,” in addition to the three featured in the above video.
  • Mist, another Asgardian Valkyrie will make her entrance into the MCU according to MCU Cosmic. In the comics she was a friend of Danielle Moonstar, a character in the New Mutants, though it’s unlikely this link means anything with the upcoming New Mutants film. Considering Mist is Asgardian, it’s likely that she will appear in either Loki or Thor: Love and Thunder.
  • Comicbook.com revealed that Owen Wilson will be joining the cast of Loki in a major role.
  • Rick Jones is also reportedly joining the MCU at some point according to MCU Cosmic. I expect the character to be introduced in Captain Marvel 2.
  • Barney Barton (aka Trickshot), the brother of Clint Barton (Hawkeye) and the Tracksuit Draculas (or Tracksuit Maria) are set to be introduced in Hawkeye.
  • Clea is being rumored for Doctor Strange 2, after The Illuminerdi got their hands on the news that Marvel is looking for a lead female actress to be in an undisclosed role at the center of the plot. Murphy’s Multiverse speculates that Emily Blunt met with Marvel for this role.
  • Chiwetel Ejiofor is set to reprise his role as Mordo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
  • MCU Cosmic is also hearing word that known MCU characters can pop up as different versions of themselves in Doctor Strange 2, as it will likely hop between dimensions of the Multiverse frequently.
  • Variety broke the scoop that Sam Raimi may helm Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Scott Derrickson thinks it would be a great fit.
  • The Hollywood Reporter claims the Doctor Strange 2 will also receive a script rewrite by Loki showrunner Michael Waldron.
  • A set picture from (likely) a Morbius reshoot location, shows evidence of Spider-Man on the run in the form of a poster on a bus. The Daily Bugle logo is the same logo used in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy.
