The name of the movie may be “Captain Marvel” but Goose the cat may be the star.

Non-Marvel Related Projects

**********

Deadline reported Brie Larson has two new projects coming to Netflix.

1. Her directorial debut “Unicorn Store will debut April 5, 2019. Brie stars in the film along with her “Captain Marvel” co-star Samuel L. Jackson. This is the third time these two have worked together. They also starred with Tom Hiddleston in “Kong: Skull Island.” The movie “centers on a woman who moves back in with her parents, and receives an invitation to a store that will test her ideas of what it really means to grow up.”

2. She will also star in and direct “Lady Business.” The movie “tells the true story of two young female entrepreneurs, Penelope Gazin and Kate Dwyer, who had to invent a third male company founder in order to be taken seriously in the business world.”

Both of these sound interesting and I hope I’ll be able to check them out.

Collider reported that Zendaya is in the beginning stages of being cast in Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” remake. If cast, she would play Timothee Chalamet’s love interest Chani.

That’s all for this week. Type at ya later!

Over and out,

Captain Stark

From God To Alien Hunter

It’s been a slow week for Marvel news and most of this week’s tidbits are about the actor’s other projects. News will be sure to pick up again after the New year. In the meantime I hope to have one movie review posted.

Unfortunately, the Spider-Man Far From Home trailer wasn’t released like it was supposedly going to. I’ve got no idea when they’ll release it. Hopefully, it will be soon.

According to  Peter Sciretta from Slashfilm, a couple of people have been allowed to read James Gunn’s script for Guardians 3. It’s so emotional that it’s made them cry.

Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula, told People in an interview “… I don’t have any details as to when [the next Guardians will come out] but there’s a script in existence.”

     She cheekily added, I may have had a little teeny peek, but I can’t say anything.” 

Let’s get through one tear-jerker at a time, please. We have Endgame to get through and I am not done recovering from Infinity War yet. I’m so not ready for another emotional roller coaster ride.

The Oscars recently released the shortlist of their nominees and all three of the MCU films that were released this year  have been nominated for awards.

    Black Panther has made the shortlist for Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Score, Original Song, and Visual Effects.

    Infinity War has been shortlisted for Original Score and Visual Effects.

    Antman And The Wasp has been shortlisted for Visual Effects.

The final nominations will be revealed on January 22, 2019. Fingers crossed that an MCU film will finally be recognized by the Academy!

There’s a rumor going around that a future MCU film will have scenes set during WWI. An Italian site Badtaste.it has cited newspaper, I l Saviglianese, the castle and historic center of Racconigi are going to be used for filming scenes for an upcoming Marvel film. Filming is said to take place during April and May of next year. The report also claims that the director was seen in the area, but the director’s name wasn’t given. No one knows what movie is going to be filmed there, but it’s possible the scenes could be for Black Widow, which is the next movie set to start filming early next year. The Eternals is another possibility but nothing has been confirmed.

An MCU movie has never been set during WWI before, so if any of this turns out to be true, it will be an interesting era of history to explore. Dear Marvel, you have my attention!

Cate Blanchett (Hela In Thor Ragnarok) stars in the upcoming movie Where’d You Go, Bernadette? It’s based on the book of the same name by Maria Semple. The first trailer came out a couple days ago, and it looks very interesting.

It comes out in theaters March 22, 2019.

The IMAX trailer for Avengers Endgame has been released this weekend, both in theaters and online. You can watch it below. It’s the same trailer, you just see a few more details than you do in the original. For example, it is Nebula you see reaching for Tony. So that bursts the bubble in the “It’s Loki!” theory.

    Avengers Endgame will be released April 26, 2019.

The head of Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+, Kevin Mayer, told The Hollywood Reporter that it’s a possibility that the canceled  Marvel Netflix shows could be be revived on Disney+. However, it won’t be anytime soon because the Netflix contract states that the characters from the canceled shows can’t be used in other projects until two years after cancellation.

Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes) has been very busy this year and has several new movies coming out, including Destroyer, which will be released Christmas Day. The final trailer is below.

The first look at the new film Monday starring Sebastian Stan and Deniese Gough was released by Variety.

9FFB22D1-E98E-4049-BEF5-B8A8C87D8C04

The above picture is enough to sell me on this movie alone. The synopsis given reads:

Monday” follows the story of Mickey (Stan) and Chloe (Gough), two Americans in their mid-thirties living in Athens, who “meet in the heat of summer one whirlwind weekend,” according to a statement. “When Chloe’s time in Greece is drawing to a close, she decides to give up her high-flying job back home and explore whether one weekend’s passion can stand the reality of the inevitable Monday.”

I’m up for a romance any time. This sounds like it could be really good!

Sebastian will also star in the movie I’m Not Here. It comes out April 25, 2019. You can watch the first trailer below.

Marvel announced that there will be a two issue prelude comic for Spider-Man Far From Home. The first issue will be released next March and retells the story from Spider-Man Homecoming.

The poster and first trailer for Men In Black: International starring Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Tessa Thompson (Valkerie). You can check out the trailer below.1659A7F8-349D-44AD-AEC8-6E5E36DDBF08

It looks really cool. I can’t wait to see it! It comes out June 14, 2019.

Adam McKay (He helped Paul Rudd rewrite Antman) was on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast and said that he has been approached by Marvel to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3. He also said that Marvel is “kicking around a Nova idea,” and that he would like the chance to make a Silver Surfer movie.

There is currently no word on whether he will be the one to replace James Gunn on Guardians 3.

According to IMDB, the two most anticipated 2019 films are Avengers 4 and Captain Marvel.

     Insomniac Games has released the Sam Raimi Spider-Man suit for all players on Spider-Man for PS4.

The Christmas EP A Very Spidey Christmas featured in Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse has been released. You can now own gems like this:

The speaking part towards the end is particularly entertaining!

In a recent interview with Collider , director Guillermo del Toro was asked if he’d ever direct a film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s interested in doing so, but only if it focuses on characters that are monsters. He said, “I’m not interested in superheroes that aren’t monsters.”

So, Marvel, you know what to do. “Get this man a monster!”

In an interview with IGN, Kelly Port from Digital Domain, the company responsible for Infinity War’s visual effects, revealed that Red Skull was recreated entirely with CGI and that actor Ross Marquand only provided the voice.

The Russo Brothers said in an interview with Empire Magazine that “there’s a high probability that this movie (Avengers 4) will clock in at around three hours.” They say, “It’s a big movie with a lot of story.” 9C74E14C-AA47-4A25-BA26-0FBC22DD1888

I sure hope there’s an intermission if this turns out to be the case!

This will most likely be the last News Roundup of the year. I will try to have at least one movie review posted. The news will start up again in the new year and the News Roundup will return.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. I am so thankful for everyone involved in this community and am looking forward to seeing where the Facebook page and site go next in the New Year. Thanks for celebrating the MCU with us! ❤️

Over and out,

Captain Stark

Strange Snabs Sequel

This week has been full of interesting news and rumors. As the Holidays get closer, Hollywood releases a bunch of news before going on a two week break. During the news slump, I will try to have a movie review out, either for Ragnarok or Infinity War.

Speaking of Infinity War, it’s been nominated for two Critic’s Choice Awards for Best Action Movie and Best Visual Effects.

     Black Panther has been nominated for twelve Critics Choice Awards, including an award for Best Picture.

     Black Panther has also been nominated for two SAG Awards including Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

Both Infinity War and Antman And The Wasp have been nominated for SAG Awards for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture.

     Den Of Geek reported that in an interview they conducted with Into The Spiderverse producers, Phil Lord and Chris Miller revealed that Dr. Strange showed up at the end of the first draft of the movie. It’s too bad that didn’t make the cut. I would’ve enjoyed seeing that!

In an interview with Discussing Film, Venom screenwriter Jeff Pinkner confirmed that a sequel is in the works. When asked about the possibility of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, Mr. Pinkner had this to say:

74D74C60-D654-4C72-B478-144F992C1BB5

I think it’d be cool to see Spider-Man go up against Venom. Hopefully, things will work out so that this can happen.

     Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Scott Derrickson will be returning to direct Dr. Strange 2.  Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong are set to return as Dr. Strange and Wong respectively. Rachel McAdams is possibly returning in the role of Strange’s love interest, Dr. Christine Palmer as well.Marvel has started looking for someone to write the script.

    Hollywood Reporter sources are hopeful that the script will be written in 2019, with filming starting in 2020, and hopefully releasing in May 2021 if all goes according to plan.

     The Hashtag Show reported that Marvel has started casting supporting roles for their upcoming Black Widow movie including a role for a “female contemporary” for Natasha. No one knows what kind of role this particular character will play. The movie will start production early next year and is set for release in May 2020.

     Discussing Film reported cinematographer Rob Hardy (Mission Impossible: Fallout) has been hired for Black Widow.

     Cartoon Brew revealed that Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse is officially a frontrunner in the Oscar race for Best Animated Feature. It’ll be interesting to see if Sony Animation will beat the normally Disney/Pixar dominated category.

A very reliable source has reported that the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer will be released sometime next week. I currently don’t have a date, but as always the trailer will be shared here and on our Facebook page upon release.

Disney-Pixar’s next original film Onward will star Chris Pratt and Tom Holland, along with Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer, and will be released March 6, 2020. Below in the following graphic from Chris Pratt Online is all that is currently known about the film.

Netflix’s Punisher Season 2 will be released in January 2019. If it follows the pattern of Ironfist, Luke Cage, and Daredevil, this could be the show’s final season before being cancelled.

According to Variety, don’t hold your breath for any of the Defenders characters to be revived on Disney Plus any time soon. Netflix had a clause in the show’s contract stating that characters from these shows can’t be used in other projects for two years after they get canceled. That means that the earliest these characters can be used is in 2021.

     Antman and the Wasp will be added to Netflix on January 29,2019.

Elizabeth Olsen’s Facebook Watch show Sorry For Your Loss has been renewed for season two in 2019.

According to site We Got This Covered, the second trailer for Avengers Endgame is rumored to be released in March. This is just a rumor and no date has been confirmed.

My personal opinion is that people need to chill when it comes to trailers because Marvel is not ever going to release a trailer that will spoil anything of importance in their movies. They have been known to edit trailers in the past, so what little footage you do see may not actually make it into the final cut of the film. So, sit back, relax, the movie will get here when it gets here. And it will get here April 26, 2019.

     Variety is predicting that Apple will buyout Sony Pictures in 2019. This would give Apple access to Spider-Man, Men In Black, and Jumanji as options for films and for their streaming service.

Maybe, and this is just me speculating, if this happens, we could see more of the Hulk as well. Right now, this is just a bunch of “What If?” It will  be interesting to see if this actually happens.

     MCU Cosmic reported that Sony is hopeful about being able to extend their deal to keep Spider-Man in the MCU. Hopefully, things will work out and Spider-Man will stay in the MCU for years to come.

     Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse producer Amy Pascal told Vanity Fair in an interview that the Spiderverse sequel will focus on a romance between Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy. Gwen will also be the focus of the Spider-Women spin-off along with Cindy Moon (Silk) and Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman).

     The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Benicio del Toro (the Collector from Guardians of the Galaxy) will be playing Swiper the Fox in the Live Action Dora the Explorer movie.

     RadioTimes reported that The Night Manager, a show based on the book of the same name by John le Carré starring Tom Hiddleston as the lead Jonathan Pine, has a second series in the works but the original director Susanne Bier will not be returning.

There was so much news this week that maybe if the same thing happens, I’ll split the News Roundup into two articles instead of one.

     Page News: Our Facebook page has recently crossed 4K likes and is rapidly growing. To celebrate, we’ll be having a Marvel themed Q&A next Friday through Sunday. A post will be pinned to the top of the page Friday and we’ll answer questions throughout the weekend when we have time.

Both of my Facebook pages, My Marvelous Escape and DCTV Is My Escape are looking for admins. You can apply for one or the other, or both. Please message My Marvelous Escape and DCTV Is My Drug if interested.

That’s all for this week, I’ll be back next week with another News Roundup.

Over and Out,

Captain Stark
