MCU Actor’s Non-Marvel Related Projects

Rumors

There are several rumors going around about Marvel’s upcoming projects. Remember that these are just rumors and that nothing is confirmed!!! These rumors come from We Got This Covered and God only knows how reliable this site actually is.

A Nebula and Gamora show might be in development for Disney +

Several X-men series might also be in development. The X-men characters are currently owned by Fox. The Fox-Disney merger isn’t completed yet, so if this rumor is true it will be awhile before this happens.

A Young Avengers/New Avengers movie is rumored to be in development. The team is said to include Kate Bishop’s Hawkeye, Hulkling, Iron Lad, Patriot, Wiccan, Stature, and a different version of Vision. Personally, I’d like to see America Chavez and Kid Loki included in the lineup.

Again, all of the above is speculation and rumors with no confirmation. No official Phase 4 plans will be announced until sometime after Avengers 4 is released.

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