Prepare to fly further, faster and higher now that the sequel to the blockbuster CAPTAIN MARVEL is a go. This time around for the sequel, the originals co-writers and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, will not return to helm the sequel or write it. A staff writer from the upcoming Disney + WANDAVISION, Megan McDonnell, is set to pen a script for a follow-up to the 2019 movie that starred Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson.
Full details about the plot have not yet been revealed but it has been noted that the superhero movie will go from the 1990s into present day.
The original CAPTAIN MARVEL had several writers at the helm including the co directors as well as Nicole Perlman, Meg LeFauve and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
McConnell is a relatively new writer with WandaVisionbeing her first major credit. The show brings back Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Avengers heroes Wanda Maximoff and the Vision, respectively. The show, currently in production, also brings back CAPTAIN MARVEL kid character of Monica Rambeau, now an adult played by Teyonnah Parris. In the comics, Rambeau was an iteration of Captain Marvel.
Even after the blockbuster cast announcement we were given about Marvel Studios THE ETERNALS at San Diego Comic Con is seems as if that roster is still expanding. “Crazy Rich Asians” star Gemma Chan is in talks to join THE ETERNALS this is according to Variety.
Chan would join previously announced cast members Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek and Kumail Nanjiani. Chan is no stranger to the Marvel Cinematic Unverse, earlier this year she portrayed Minn-Erva in CAPTAIN MARVEL with Brie Larson and Jude Law. Its unknown if she will be playing the same role in THE ETERNALS.
Variety’s sources are saying that Chan’s part in THE ETERNALS would be a completely different role, which if true, would mark one of the first times a star will have played two different characters in the same cinematic universe.
People have to separate the actors that were in the Marvel Netflix series’ (i.e Alfre Woodard, Mahershala Ali, etc) as they are now being considered connected yet separated.

When it was announced back in August 2017 that Disney would be ending its contract with Netflix, everyone knew it was only a matter of time before the next wave of Marvel Studios films would no longer be available on the streaming platform. During the Disney first quarters call it was revealed that Captain Marvel will be the first Marvel Studios film to premiere exclusively on Disney+(plus) Disney’s streaming platform. It was not revealed when exactly Captain Marvel would premiere on the streaming service as it only hits theaters next month on March 8.
One thing Bob Iger did confirm is that the company has no plans to adjust the theatrical release window of its movies to get them on Disney+ any sooner. Even though Captain Marvel will mark the official end of new Marvel films on Netflix, it’s unclear yet what will happen to current MCU films on the service. Netflix currently offers subscribers access to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is making its return for its shorter sixth season. After is recent season many people were wondering the fate of Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and it seems that the first trailer for the new season might have some answers or just make things a bit more confusing. Because it seems that one minute we get a hologram version of Coulson, then towards the end…..well you have to check it out for yourself.
According to the trailer there seem to be no reference to any of the events of Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers: Endgame but the team is dealing with threats from many aliens as well as powered individuals. Coulson is also set to appear in Captain Marvelbefore the arrival of this new season.
Fitz is still frozen in space and the team is searching for him and so much more. Even with a short season we can expect to see A LOT of action and a cliff hanger as the seventh season has already been announced.
We are a little over a month away from the avenging debut of Captain Marvel in theaters and now we are getting look at many of the toys that are based off of the film. One of the big things with the toy reveals are that they may hold some spoilers that would be best only discovering watching the film first-hand.
It has been known for a while now (thanks to various pieces of merchandise and toy packaging) that Jude Law is actually playing Yon-Rogg in the film, but according to the Shop Disney website another surprise character from the comics may be possibly showing up?
Shop Disney website has listed a Genis-Vell action figure which is part of Marvel Legends’ Captain Marvel range and based on the character’s comic book appearance. However, that listing notes that fans can “Recreate Genis-Vell’s Captain Marvel scenes.”
Now there is potential this could be a mistake or this was listed and maybe thought no one would catch on to it. As it was mentioned Genis-Vell figure is based on his comic book counterpart. In the comics, Genis-Vell is the son of Captain Mar-Vell but was raised to think he was actually the son of Thanos’ brother Starfox, a character we know will appear in Eternals. So could all of this connect as we go into the next Phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
