Samuel L Jackson To Return As Nick Fury For Disney Plus Series

After the post credit scene in SPIDER-MAN:FAR FROM HOME many wondered when would be the next time we would see Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury back in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we can assume that it will be in the upcoming BLACK WIDOW  film we now know thanks to Variety that the former head of S.H.I.E.L.D will be appearing in a series currently in development at Disney Plus.

The project is in its early stages and details are being kept under wraps, but according to the trade Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot) will write and executive produce and should the project be ordered to series, it would be Jackson’s first series regular television role.

He has recurred as Col. Fury on MARVEL’s AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D on ABC. 

Jackson had initially signed a nine film deal to appear throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe which began with IRON MAN and as of most recently the aforementioned SPIDER-MAN:FAR FROM HOMEAVENGERS ENDGAME and CAPTAIN MARVEL (where we finally found out how Fury lost his eye and was required to wear the eyepatch).

BLACK WIDOW Has A New Release Date And It Shakes Up The MCU Movie Slate

Of the course the world as we know it has changed. Thanos’ snapped first got rid of then brought back half the uni…..oh that’s not what we’re talking about. Oh yeah due to the global pandemic caused by COVID-19 aka THE RONA. The movie release slate for 2020 has been drastically changed.

Many hoped at one point that Marvel Studios’ BLACK WIDOW would still be able to keep its original theatrical release date of May 1, 2020 even if that meant a straight to Disney Plus release. Well not only did the date get pushed back but there also will be no straight to Disney Plus release.

Well today Disney revealed an updated release schedule for the Scarlett Johannson led movie. It also shifts the rest of the upcoming MCU theatrical release slate.

BLACK WIDOW now will take THE ETERNALS release date of November 6, 2020 and THE ETERNALS now shifts to February 12, 2021. This also moves around SHANG-CHI and THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS to May 7, 2021 as well as DOCTOR STRANGE INTO THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS on November 5, 2021.

This update slate also seemingly locks in 2022 as well for Marvel Studios, THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER goes to February 18, 2022, BLACK PANTHER 2, May 8, 2022 and CAPTAIN MARVEL 2 which originally did not have a release date is now set for a July 8, 2022 release.

Of course with the changes in these films theatrically you can bet your bottom dollar that the slate for the MCU Disney Plus series will also be altered given that they all now directly connecting to the films in a chronological order.

The First Trailer For Marvel Studio’s BLACK WIDOW Has Arrived

After making waves from many of the reports after this years San Diego Comic Con Hall H, Marvel Studios panel about the footage that was shown from the BLACK WIDOW film. Well now that footage and more has arrived in the form of the first official teaser trailer.

Throughout it we see Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johannson) revisiting things in her past i.e The Red Room and even visions of different Avengers. We also see Florence Pugh as Yelena, who we find out is Natasha’s sister. We also get a full look at David Harbour as Red Guardian (the Russian equivalent to Captain America). This seems to be an amazing kickoff to Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

There is so much action that you need to witness the trailer yourself.

BLACK WIDOW hits theater on May 1, 2020. Also Check out our own resident super villain, Jay Washington’s trailer reaction to the trailer…yes it’s a thing.

Phase 5 MCU Movies Now Have Release Dates

We already knew that Phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was locked and loaded. Movies such as BLACK WIDOW, DOCTOR STRANGE AND THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS, SHANG-CHI AND THE LEGEND OF THE TEN RINGS and THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER are already scheduled with release dates.

Today, Marvel Studios parent company, Disney set and announced release dates for five as of yet untitled Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies. The films will be released on Oct. 7, 2022, Feb. 17, 2023, May 5, 2023,  July 28, 2023, and Nov. 3, 2023. It can be safely assumed that one of those dates will belong to BLADE starring Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali.

What do you think may be the projects to fall in these slots?

Hailee Steinfeld Being Eyed To Star In HAWKEYE Disney Plus Series

Hailee Steinfeld

Marvel Studios is still amping up its star-studded roster and this latest addition proves that. VARIETY is reporting that Hailee Steinfeld is currently in talks to star in the upcoming Disney Plus series, HAWKEYE. 

If this becomes official Steinfeld will join Jeremy Renner who reprises his role as Hawkeye aka Clint Barton, the now and arrow using Avenger and Steinfeld would play the role of Kate Bishop, his daughter. In the comics Kate Bishop eventually takes up the mantle in which her father held and joins the team of the Young Avengers.

Knowing how Disney and Marvel studios like to fully invest in their stars this more than likely would not be a one-off series for Steinfeld. Starring in the series would likely represent a long-term relationship with Marvel studios and it is reasonable to assume that the Bishop character would eventually spin off into either her own standalone series or even appear in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Gemma Chan In Talks To Join THE ETERNALS

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. 

Marvel has not commented as of this posting.

STRANGER THINGS Star Heading To Become ETERNAL

Millie Bobby Brown to Star in Marvel's The Eternals Movie

Coming after a streaming viewer record breaking  debut weekend of season 3 of STRANGER THINGS on Netflix, one of its stars is seemingly headed next into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) has joined the cast of Marvel’s The Eternals, Variety reports. The actress will join the previously announced cast of Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Ma Dong-Seok and Salma Hayek. Details on Brown’s character have not yet been revealed.

Marvel is expected to make some major announcements during its Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con on Saturday, July 20th from 5:15pm-6:45pm. This will more than likely be one of them along with a full reveal of any other major cast members.

THE ETERNALS  is set to begin production later this year and will be directed by Chloe Zhoa.

Rocket & Groot May Be The Next MCU Characters To Get A Disney+ Show

Rocket-and-Baby-Groot-sf.jpg

Since the announcement that there would be Marvel Cinematic Universe characters receiving there own individual limited series on the new Disney streaming service called DISNEY+. First there was the announcement of Loki and Scarlet Witch then it was followed up by Falcon and Winter Soldier. Now there is a rumor that the MCU’s most lovable pairs may be getting one.

Guardians of the Galaxy members Rocket and Groot are rumored to be next in line. Now this is completely a rumor at this point but is is being reported by That Hashtag Show has heard that there are plans in place for a Disney+ limited series featuring the smart-ass Raccoon and his sentient tree pal.

Though the VFX budget required to bring these characters to life means the show would undoubtedly be more costly to produce than the previously confirmed ones, we already know that the budgets for these Marvel spin-offs are expected to rival that of some blockbuster movies, so they’re clearly sparing no expense.

We’ll obviously have to see if this pans out, but there’s certainly a lot of potential here. Groot and Rocket were a team before the events of the first GOTG movie so the series could chart their early adventures without having to worry about Marvel Studios’ plans for Avengers 4 or Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
