All hope may not yet be lost for the final film under the 20th Century Fox X-MEN franchise. According to a press release from Walt Disney Studios, at this year’s Comic-con at home we will be getting a special look at THE NEW MUTANTS from a panel with writer/director Josh Boone along with stars Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Alice Braga, Blu Hunt and Henry Zaga. The panel will be moderated by Ira Madison III, will debut on July 23, 2020.
Along with this news, we were also treated to a new special look at the film.
It was just revealed at the Marvel Studios comic Con panel that the daywalker is coming into the marvel Cinematic Universe and will be played by Academy Award winner, Mahershala Ali.
We have an update on Mahershala taking on the role of they daywalker. A quote from Marvel Studios president and producer, Kevin Feige says that Marvel studios did not approach the Academy Award winner, it was actually the other way around.
While many are getting hyped up about the return of MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D for its sixth and follow up seventh season as well as hours before its Comic-Con panel in Hall H, it has been announced that the Marvel TV show will come to an end after its seventh season.
It is worth noting that ABC had already announced that the seventh batch of episodes would be shorter that previous seasons and of course many assumed that the show would finally be coming to an end, despite countless rumors of its impending cancellations before these upcoming seasons were announced.
However there may be a ray of sunshine amidst this bad news which is, that the people working on the show can now ensure that we get a satisfying and complete story ending. not like the Netflix Marvel that all ended abruptly due to their sudden cancellations.
How do you feel about this news? Are you sad to see the show come to an end?
It is less than a month away until the 50th anniversary of San Diego Comic Con is upon us. One of the notable things will be the heavy WBTV presence throughout Ballroom 20. With that one of the focuses will be be that of the CW’s Arrowverse.
The reason for this is not only will it be the eighth and final season of ARROW but also is the mega CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover. This will bring together BATWOMAN, ARROW, THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW and no one is sure yet if BLACK LIGHTNING will fall into the fray.
We dont know fully what to expect yet in regards to the crossover or their respective shows but it seems as though we may have a bit of a tease from Arrowverse executive consultant and former ARROW showrunner Marc Guggenheim. Guggenheim took to Twitter to tease of the potential Crisis-size announcement.
Loving these so much. Everyone is hard at work already — the earliest start we've ever gotten on the crossovers — to make this as big and epic and FUN as we can conceivably manage. Don't be surprised if we announce something pretty cool at SDCC… https://t.co/70D6r9x21a
It seems that the “controversy” and negative criticism isn’t derailing the Marvel’s street level heroes train anytime soon. Netflix has officially renewed Iron Fist for a second season as news is coming out of Comic-con in San Diego.
Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb made the announcement at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. In addition, Loeb hinted that Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick) would team up with NYPD detective Misty Knight (Simone Missick), who first appeared in Season 1 of “Luke Cage.” The characters previously partnered together in the Marvel comic books.
“Iron Fist” stars “Game of Thrones” alum Finn Jones as Danny Rand, the heir to the multi-billion dollar Rand Corp. who returns to New York after training for years in the mysterious city of K’un-Lun. Through his training, he was chosen to be the living weapon known as the Iron Fist, which allows him to channel his chi energy into his fists.
In addition to Jones and Henwick, the series also starred Rosario Dawson, who has appeared as nurse Claire Temple in all of the Marvel-Netflix shows to date. Season 1 also starred Jessica Stroup, Tom Pelphrey, David Wenham, and Wai Ching Ho.
“Iron Fist” was the fourth Marvel-Netflix series to be released. The show was preceded by “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” and “Luke Cage.” All four main characters will then team up for “The Defenders” event series, which will debut on Netflix on Aug. 18. In addition, Netflix has ordered a spinoff based on “The Punisher,” with Jon Bernthal reprising the title role, which he originated in Season 2 of “Daredevil.”
There is more and more news coming out of Comic-con in San Diego and this is one of them
The Legion panel ended with a pretty major news drop (well, two) as FX officially revealed that Saïd Taghmaoui has joined the season two cast as Amahl Farouk, a.k.a. the Shadow King.
The entire principal cast, including Dan Stevens, Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, and Amber Midthunder, were all in attendance for the show’s first ever SDCC panel alongside series creator Noah Hawley and executive producers John Cameron, Lauren Shuler Donner, and Jeph Loeb.
Season two plot details were kept under wraps, but Hawley did cryptically tease that they are working on possibly introducing David Haller’s famous father, Professor X. We also learned that the second season will consist of ten episodes, which are expected to debut early 2018.
Taghmaoui is coming in hot after a scene-stealing performance as Sameer in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman and his past credits include American Hustle, Three Kings, The Infiltrator, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and Lost.
WHY???? Just WHY is this even going to happen. Well you know what let me go back and try to be as objective as possible. At a Producer’s panel for The FX show Legion at Comic-con in San Diego, its showrunner Noah Hawley just officially announced that he is developing a Doctor Doom movie for 20th Century Fox.
Hawley said during the panel, “I’m developing a film for Fox and I’ll just say two words, Doctor, Doom.”
This has caught many Marvel fans COMPLETELY OFF GUARD. Doctor Doom being one of Marvel’s most iconic villains has not been done justice in theaters. He has been featured in all three of 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four films the 2005, 2007 (Rise of the SilverSurfer) and the 2015 reboot, but he has not possessed both the true genius and menace that fans have come to know.
We want to know what do you all the readers think of this? Is it a good idea to do a Doctor Doom solo film or should he be included in the next reboot that is being talked about for the Fantastic Four.
