Waititi recently completed the first script for his sequel to Thor: Ragnarok, Thor: Love and Thunder.But also you don't want to have a completely fan-made film because then it doesn't feel like there's any point.
“I will say that a lot of the female cast members from Marvel walked up to Kevin and we were like, ‘We are in this together, we want to do this,'” Brie Larson (aka Captain Marvel) told Variety.
"The Duffer Brothers have captivated viewers around the world with Stranger Things and we're thrilled to expand our relationship with them to bring their vivid imaginations to other film and series projects our members will love," Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement.
After months of negotiations between Sony Pictures and Disney, it appears that Spider-Man will no longer be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.Sony first got the rights to Spider-Man in 1999, the year before the success of X-Men revived Hollywood’s appetite for superhero movies.#Spider-Man #Marvel #Sony.
The 10-episode show, adapted from Garth Ennis' comic book, has scant regard for big-H Heroes, or for the corporate empires that have managed to turn them into movie stars. Heroes became assholes in a series of book-to-screen projects, from Watchmen to Kick-Ass to Wanted to Powers .
That means that, in addition to huge highly anticipated movies like Eternals and a new Thor flick—now with the great subtitle Love and Thunder —the next phase of the MCU will have WandaVision , an original series where Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprise their roles as Scarlet Witch and Vision, and Loki , about, well, Loki.
Now that focus is finally paying off in the world of games: Last year's Spider-Man was the first Marvel game in memory that felt like a spiritual sibling of the MCU.
There are usually sneak peeks of future blockbusters and surprise announcements about comic-book heroes getting their own movies. Marvel skipped Comic-Con in 2018, but it's coming back this year to bring fans … something.
Instead, the series—which will launch with Disney+ in November —pairs up Marvel Entertainment's chief creative officer Joe Quesada with some very visionary people to find out how they do their best work.
Now, though, with plans for future movies still uncertain and the new Disney+ Star Wars series set well before the latest trilogy, I'm thinking maybe I was wrong.
We assembled WIRED writers and editors Jason Kehe, Jason Parham, Peter Rubin, and Angela Watercutter to analyze all of the biggest themes of Marvel's franchise-defining movie.
It’s a trip that, in the best ways possible, feels like a band reuniting for a greatest-hits tour, one where the songs gets played by a frontman or frontwoman who wasn’t on the original track—some Traveling Wilburys covering a George Harrison track, Jay-Z and Nas ending their beef to perform “Dead Presidents,” and Beyoncé reuniting Destiny’s Child at Coachella all rolled into one.
From there, go to Muted words , click Add , and start entering Endgame -related phrases one at a time. There are some tools, like Twitter's mute or Facebook's relatively new Keyword Snooze, that can help you traipse through the minefields, but in general, try to stay off your phone as much as possible.
For a scant $6.99 a month it will provide you with almost the entire Disneyome, a corpus of hundreds of movies (all of Disney, most of Marvel with more to come, almost all of Pixar, all of Star Wars , lots of Fox—which Disney recently bought) and even more hundreds of TV shows (Disney Channel stuff, National Geographic stuff, and new originals from those subgroups I just mentioned, The Simpsons ).
According to the latest projections, the movie is on track to make $200-250 million in its opening weekend and online ticket retailers are struggling to keep up. If Endgame brings in more than $257.6 million, it'll beat out its predecessor, Avengers: Infinity War, for the biggest domestic opening weekend of all time.
Also, Marvel has some new animated offerings on the way, and there's another weird comedy coming from Netflix.
Well, aside from Captain Marvel 's continued dominance, we've got an Oscar-winning documentary landing on Hulu and some good news for Marvel's first Asian-American-led movie. In fact, just yesterday word came out that the studio has hired Destin Daniel Cretton to direct Shang-Chi , Marvel’s first superhero movie with an Asian lead.
New Avengers: Endgame Trailer Does 'Whatever It Takes' It's perhaps no surprise that Marvel is not doling out much in the way of plot in the ramp-up for Avengers: Endgame . Besides, the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer already mostly probably confirms that everyone makes it out OK.
(To be fair—sorry, Kate McKinnon—it wasn't a great movie .) Then the same trolls went after Rogue One , Black Panther , Wonder Woman , and Star Wars: The Last Jedi : complaining that casting women and people of color was racist, sexist, and childhood-ruining; launching #boycott campaigns; spreading fake news stories designed to damage ticket sales; and carpeting the internet with bad-faith pre-release negative reviews.
Vaughan has a new gig and there's a trailer for Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut Booksmart . Variety reports the film took in $455 million worldwide in its opening weekend for the sixth biggest global debut ever.
Barbara Davidson/Los Angeles Times/Getty Images Long before he did one of his now-famous cameos in a Marvel movie, Stan Lee appeared as himself in a film about a bunch of slackers killing time in suburbia.
The first two acts of the movie may set them up as the enemies, and Captain Marvel's Kree as the saviors, but the third act flips that dangerous assumption entirely. (Kree, even with their blue skin, still look more human than Skrulls do.) Or do we side with the people who are forced into hiding?
But to say that only women will like Carol Danvers or that her movie is just about Marvel finally doing a female-fronted superhero flick is to tie one hand behind her back—and it's time to set her free.
The Suicide Squad may have found someone to replace Will Smith, the Mindy Kaling movie Amazon picked up at Sundance this year just got a trailer, and Captain Marvel is about to soar at the box office.
(Spoilers: Pay close attention to her mother.) (Spoilers, Part 2: Surprisingly, the retcon pushed the character further from her movie incarnation than she had been previously.) How to read it : Available digitally, and in the Life of Captain Marvel print collection.
