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.

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:

Marvel News

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

During an interview with Yahoo! News, Sebastian Stan discussed his feelings on Bucky possibly  becoming the next Captain America:

“I don’t know about that. Not really though, if you think about it. It makes no sense for him to…why would you give it to the guy that’s been trying to have a whole new history outside of the thing he’s been trapped by. I remember I found out [about Falcon getting the shield] the day we were shooting. I was like ‘Oh wow, this is the deal.’ But it makes sense. He’s [Sam Wilson] has been his [Captain America’s] right-hand for a long time at this point.”

In an interview with MTV News, Scarlett Johansson has said that Black Widow will be inspired by movies like Logan, Terminator 2, and The Fugitive.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tom Hiddleston has said that filming for the Loki Disney+ TV series will begin in early 2020.

In an interview with Inverse, Black Widow writer Jac Schaeffer had this to say about the violence in Black Widow:

“The fighting [in Black Widow] is a lot of close contact, hand-to-hand combat,” Schaeffer said. “It’s very visceral. There’s a lot of aggression and power in a very human way that I find really satisfying and really exciting to watch, but it’s the polar opposite to writing for super-powered characters.” [In reference to being the showrunner for Wandavision]

She also said that part of Black Widow will take place after Captain America: Civil War. To be more specific, what happens after the Avengers fight at the airport. [Natasha is] “very much on her own and over the events of the Black Widow movie, she has to reckon with some of the red in her ledger.”

According to MCU Cosmic, Marvel plans to introduce comics characters Galactus and Tyrant in the MCU at some point in the future.

The same source has said that a report has been released concerning a shooting location for Eternals. The location is in the Canary Islands, “a UNESCO  World Heritage site, Teide National Park.”  This particular site will be used for a “prehistoric” location.
