Looks like prep for the Hawkeye series has begun!

According to MCU Cosmic, Marvel is still interested in Hailee Steinfeld playing Kate Bishop and are trying to work something out. But they have another actress in mind for the role if things don’t work out with Hailee. There’s no official info on who this other actress is, and trades like The Hollywood Reporter are looking into it.

Hawkeye’s costume from the Matt Fraction  comic run might be used in the series.

Two writers have recently announced their involvement with Hawkeye via Twitter: Katie Matthewson and Tanner Bean.

@CinematicBender, owner of @DiscussingFilm, found this on IMDB Pro:

Sylvie Luston is the name of the Enchantress, and it looks like she’ll be in the Loki series. There is no official word on who is playing the adult version. Though in the Loki set photos from Just Jared. People are speculating that Sophia Di Martino could be playing her. Or Lady Loki. There’s been a lot of back and forth between fans about it.

Meg is a fellow lawyer described as “shrewd, while having a biting wit and humor.”

‘Loki’ and FAWS Rumors

Marvel News

*************

During an interview with Hey U Guys, Tom Holland had this to say about his recent meeting with Sony and Marvel:

“I know everything now. (About what’s happening in SpiderMan 3) I had my big pitch meeting with Marvel and Sony about two weeks ago and I know all the secrets. But I’ve also done about a thousand interviews so I know how not to spoil a movie anymore. ”

Yeah, right! I’ll believe it when I don’t hear any spoilers!

According to GWW, Moon Knight is expected to start filming in mid-November in Atlanta, Georgia. Filming will take place at Pinewood Studios, and Murphy’s Multiverse has said that some filming is rumored to take place in the UK.

@ProdWeek has reported that Spider-Man 3 will film under the working title Serenity Now.

According to Knight Edge Media, Marvel is looking for an “Alison Brie type” of actress to play She-Hulk.

 

 

 

RumorVille

***********

Murphy’s Multiverse has heard that some scenes for Thor: Love and Thunder may be filmed in Vancouver.

The above source also heard that some of Falcon and Winter Soldier plot may need to be reworked. Apparently, part of the story revolved around some sort of pandemic similar to what’s currently going on with the Corona Virus. So as not to copy current events, they might reshoot some scenes.

Hawkeye is rumored to start filming late September.

She-Hulk is expected to start filming sometime in November. MCU Cosmic has reported that Mark Ruffalo has had “preliminary talks” about appearing in the series.

@DanielRPK has shared that Wiz Kid, a Mutant character, will appear in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

“Otherwise known as Takeshi Matsuya, Wiz Kid is a computer genius confined to a wheelchair who has the mutant ability of technoform where he can create machinery with his mind.”

(Source: MCU Cosmic)

Since the character is wheelchair-bound, I hope they get a disabled actor to play him. This could be great representation for the disabled community if Marvel plays their cards right!

Sebastian Stan posted this picture on his Instagram:

54C1957C-BD3F-48D0-AC51-43BB99BFD2F6

Several sources including MCU Cosmic and GWW are speculating that Clé Bennett (Center) will be playing Battlestar in Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Bleeding Cool has reported that the Squadron Supreme will show up in the Loki series. The Squadron Supreme is Marvel’s version of DC’s Justice League.

The more rumors come out, the more interested I have become toward the Loki series.

THR reported that Chris Evans is in talks for the role of “dentist Orin Scrivello, Audrey’s abusive and sadistic boyfriend, who finds great pleasure in his chosen profession. The role is flashy (the character loves to use laughing gas) and comes with the scene-stealing signature song, “Dentist!” Scarlett Johansson is rumored to be playing the aforementioned Audrey.

If talks go well, Cap and Nat could be reunited onscreen.

 

Jurassic World: Dominion started filming a few days ago.

THR has reported that Michael Rooker has joined the cast of the Showtime pilot The President is Missing.

“Rooker will play the government agent tasked with protecting the vice president (David Oyelowo) in the adaptation of James Patterson and Bill Clinton’s mega-selling novel. He joins a cast that also includes Janet McTeer, Medina Senghore, Paul Adelstein and Gina Gallego.”

You can read the show’s synopsis below:

“The drama centers on Oyelowo’s James Martin, the powerless and politically aimless vice president of the United States. When he unexpectedly becomes president halfway through his administration’s first term, he walks right into a secret, world-threatening crisis both inside and outside the White House. Attacked on all sides, with scandal and conspiracy swirling around him, he has to choose whether to keep his head down, toe the party line and survive or act on his stubborn, late-developing conscience and take a stand.

Rooker will play Greg Parkes, the special agent in charge of the vice presidential detail. The impossible task of protecting Martin has proved more than a warrior like Parkes can bear.”

Backstage.com reported that Tom Hiddleston’s Netflix series White Stork has been given the green light. Casting has begun, and the series will begin filming this Summer in London.

That’s all for this week. Thanks for reading!

First Look At Marvel Shows Revealed!

Marvel News

***************

Last week’s Super Bowl included a few treats for Marvel fans. We got a Black Widow TV Spot and a first look at the three Disney Plus shows coming out soon. We knew we were getting a peek at footage from Falcon and Winter Soldier and WandaVision, but I don’t think anyone was expecting a few seconds of Loki footage at the end! You can watch both TV spots below:

Black Widow:

Disney Plus:

MCU Cosmic noticed several things in the above spot:

1. Loki is wearing a uniform with the letters TVA on it. These letters stand for Time Variance Authority. According to the site,  “That’s an organization who monitors alternate timelines in the Multiverse and will “prune” those they deem to dangerous to exist.”

So it looks like Loki got in a butt-load of trouble with the Time Variance  and is now serving time for his crimes.

2. The several seconds of WandaVision confirmed several rumors that were previously reported:

1. Wanda and Visions twins, Billy and Tommy, will be in the series.

2. They will grow up fast over a short time period.

3. The show will be influenced by sitcoms from the 50s through the 90s.

Several Black Widow character posters and the official synopsis  were also released:

“In Marvel Studios’ action-packed spy thriller Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow confronts the darker parts of her ledger when a dangerous conspiracy with ties to her past arises. Pursued by a force that will stop at nothing to bring her down, Natasha must deal with her history as a spy and the broken relationships left in her wake long before she became an Avenger.”
Another poster for New Mutants has been released:

C272FDE3-36B0-4A9C-B82F-8704952E0AE8

MCU Cosmic reported that Clint Barton’s brother Barney AKA the antihero Trickshot and the Tracksuit Draculas AKA the Tracksuit Mafia. These characters appear in the Matt Fraction Hawkeye comics.
I’ve read a bunch of those and really enjoyed them. I know it’s a small complaint, but the Tracksuit Mafia overused the word, “Bro, ” which got annoying after a while. So maybe spice up their dialogue by throwing in a few “Dudes” to mix it up! 😂
Gemma Chan confirmed via Instagram that Eternals has finished filming.
Disney had their earnings call this week. During the call, Bob Iger confirmed/announced  a couple of things.
1. Falcon and Winter Soldier will stream in August. WandaVision was confirmed for December.
2. There are 7 Disney Plus Marvel  shows in various stages of development.

Variety
reported that Sam Raimi is “in talks” with Marvel about directing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Former director Scott Derrickson tweeted his support of the news:
47660952-363E-418F-A931-53CDC765AB4ECredit: MCU Direct
Variety also stated that Rachel McAdams will not be returning as Doctor Christine Palmer in the sequel.
The Illuminerdi reported that Kraven the Hunter could be showing up in the MCU soon.  For more information, check out their article:
They also reported that Christian Bale will be playing an alien villain in Thor: Love and Thunder. He hasn’t signed on the dotted line yet, but is said to have a lead role in the movie. His character isn’t known but is described by Marvel Studios as “otherworldly.”
MCU Cosmic reported that Marvel is still looking for their Kate Bishop. Their first choice is Hailee Steinfeld. But because of potential scheduling conflicts with Hawkeye and her Apple TV+ series Dickensian, they need to have a second option just in case their first doesn’t work out.
The same source has also reported that Marvel wants to use Crossbones in the future and are discussing how they can do that. Crossbones first appeared in and  died in Captain America: Civil War. It’s kinda hard to use a character that’s dead! But as Marvel and DC have proven, nothing is impossible in the realm of comic book cinema.

A BTS look at Pixar’s Onward has been released:
THR reported that Chris Pratt will be starring in a new conspiracy  thriller TV series The Terminal List.
Here’s the synopsis:
“The Terminal List follows Reece (Pratt) after his entire platoon of Navy SEALs is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. As he returns home with conflicting memories of the event and questions about culpability, new evidence comes to light when he discovers dark forces working against him.”
The show doesn’t have a network yet. It’s also a potential multiple season show, not a limited series.
Deadline reported that Tom Hiddleston will star in a new Political Thriller Netflix series White Stork. The show will have ten episodes, and there’s no word on when it’ll premiere. Here’s the synopsis:
 “When James Cooper (Hiddleston) is selected to run for a seat in parliament, Asher Millan is sent to vet him for primetime. But she quickly uncovers potentially damaging secrets buried deep in James’ past. Secrets that will threaten to blow everything apart – his career, his marriage, even the powerful people backing his campaign.”

Transgender Superhero Rumors

MCU News

*********

In an interview with EW, Kumail Nanjiani said that Eternals, “It’s the most epic of all the Marvel movies. And it spans thousands of years.”

Richard Madden posted this photo to his Insta-story and confirmed that Eternals has completed filming:

Tom Hiddleston posted a video of him doing stunt prep for the Loki series. As you can imagine, this video blew up on ‘Loki Stan’ twitter:

Prep is going really well. #Loki

A post shared by Tom Hiddleston (@twhiddleston) on

An interesting rumor resurfaced this week about the Loki series. According to The Illuminerdi, Marvel is looking to cast a transgender actress for the role of their first major trans superhero Sera. Geek Worldwide were the first to break the rumor months ago. It was speculated that she’d make her first appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder, but now The Illuminerdi has said that Sera is set to appear in the first season of Loki. .

“The role is being described as a major supporting character set to appear not only on the series but possibly in future MCU movies as well.”

So an appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder doesn’t sound like it’s out of the question.

For more on who Sera is, click here:

Loki Set To Debut Sera, Marvel’s First Trans Character, In Season One: EXCLUSIVE

MCU Exchange has speculated that this could mean the introduction of Sera’s wife and Thor and Loki’s half-sister Angela. Plus they could be planning to do something with the Tenth Realm AKA Heven  in the MCU.

Murphy’s Multiverse has reported a rumor about who could potentially be playing Sera, but at this point, it’s merely speculation. The best I can tell you is the actress’s name is Anjelica Ross. She may or may not be playing Sera. The role is currently unknown. Marvel was looking for male actors as well as female actors for this role. Since Sera is a trans-female, and they were looking at guys as well, they could be casting for a completely different role altogether.

Charles does a far better job of explaining this rumor better than I could ever sum up. Here’s his article for a better explanation:

What I Heard This Week: ‘LOKI’

 

 

Comicbook.com reported that Owen Wilson has been cast in a “key role”, but it’s currently unknown who he’ll be playing.

 

MCU Cosmic reported that Marvel plans to introduce another Valkyrie, Mist, in the near future.

This is MY speculation AKA not based in factual reporting!

What if Mist turns out to be the love interest for Valkyrie in Thor: Love and Thunder? It’ll be interesting to come back later and see if I was close.

 

Another interesting bit from the same source is that a character named Ripper of the Hellbent will debut in the Moon Knight Disney+ series.

For more information on the character, here’s a link to the article:

Ripper of The Hellbent May Appear in Moon Knight

Murphy’s Multiverse reported that Emily Blunt met with Marvel to discuss a role in an upcoming film.

The Illuminerdi were able to confirm that Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) will return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Murphy’s Multiverse reported that Marvel is still looking for their Ms. Marvel. There are currently no frontrunners for the role.

The same source also reported that Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will introduce MI-6 agents Leiko Wu, Clive Reston, and Black Jack Tarr. For more information, you can go here:

EXCLUSIVE: ‘SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS’ Confirmed to Introduce MI-6 Characters Leiko Wu, Clive Reston and Black Jack Tarr

MCU Cosmic reported that Rick Jones, human sidekick to several of the Avengers will be coming to the MCU. Where or when he’ll show up is not known.

The Illuminerdi has reported that Clea will make her debut in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

1. They are looking for an actress somewhere in the 20s-40s age range.

2. The actress they cast needs to have “leading lady qualities.”

 

MCU Cosmic has reported that different versions of already established characters will appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

“A female who portrays Caucasian between 5’6″ and 5’8″ with BLONDE hair.” (Quote source: @MCUCosmic)

They’re also looking for African American female stand-in  as well:
