We will leave it up to interpretation who is “mommy” and who is “daddy” but nonetheless it is all around good news because Sony and Marvel Studios/Disney have made amends and the co-produced 3rd SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING film will happen. Amy Pascal will also once again co-produce through Pascal Pictures which she has done over the past two films.
The third film is scheduled for release on July 16, 2021. Also as part of the arrangement, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios film. Which ultimately makes this a very big win for all of the fans.
Now in case you are unaware what happened. money was the overall root of the problem. Disney was reportedly seeking a 50/50 co-financing stake in the Spider-man films. This is because of Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige’s continued guiding hand which resulted in the delivery of Sony’s highest grossing film ever with $1.13 billion. It also has to be mentioned that Disney already owns the merchandise on Spider-Man. The original Sony-Marvel deal over the last two SPIDER-MAN movies saw Disney getting an estimated 5% of first gross dollar.
This of course now has changed with the renewed partnership. Sony has agreed to the terms that Disney proposed for its participation in a future Spider-Man sequel. With this Disney/Marvel Studios would co-finance 25% of a third HOMECOMING movie for a 25% equity stake.
Kevin Feige released a statement which stated,
“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
Amy Pascal who has produced the first two Tom Holland led Spider-man films also released a statement.
“This is terrific. Peter Parker’s story took a dramatic turn in Far From Home and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes. This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”
No matter what we now can breathe a sigh of relief as the conclusion to the story can be told and then see what happens within Sony’s own Spider-man Universe.
Just when people were getting excited for the arrival of the GHOST RIDER series on Hulu, that excitement has to be quelled as now the series will no longer be moving forward. This was reported as an exclusive from Deadline.
Deadline is reporting that seemingly the reason for the series not going forward is creative differences between Hulu and the GHOST RIDER team.
Even though Gabriel Luna will not be reprising his role on Hulu as Robbie Reyes, MARVEL’S HELSTROM is on track as well as four connected animated series. MARVEL’S M.O.D.O.K, MARVEL’S HIT-MONKEY, MARVEL’S TIGRA AND DAZZLER SHOW and MARVEL’S HOWARD THE DUCK, set to roll out in 2020, culminating in a special event, MARVEL’s THE OFFENDERS.
It is not yet known if the series will shopped elsewhere but there has been rumors that Marvel Studios is interested in bringing a Ghost Rider show to the Disney plus streaming site.
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.

Over the past couple of years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has made some major changes when it comes to its level of representation in its film. This is due to in part the blockbuster successes of BLACK PANTHER and CAPTAIN MARVEL and even the upcoming SHANG CHI and the recently announced Ms. Marvel Disney plus series in the works,he MCU continues to grow more and more diverse.
This even goes into one of the studios upcoming projects THE ETERNALS, that announced it would feature both the studios and the MCU’s first openly gay hero. Now the identity of that character has yet to be disclosed but Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige has shared some new details on the hero.
While speaking to Good Morning America during the recent D23 Expo in Anaheim.“He’s married, he’s got a family. And that is just part of who he is.”
Of course Feige did not say which specific member of THE ETERNALS, would be the bero but it does confirm previous reports that the character is male. Nonetheless, Feige’s statement makes it clear that the hero’s sexuality won’t be hidden,
Directed by Chloé Zhao, The Eternals stars Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff , Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Angelina Jolie, Barry Keoghan, Gemma Chan and Kit Harington.
When Gemma Chan was announced as a cast member of Marvel Studios THE ETERNALS many were wondering if the CRAZY RICH ASIANS star was reprising her CAPTAIN MARVEL role of Minn-Erva or if it would be a completely different character. Now we know that not only is it a different role but is the starring role.
Chan will be playing the character of Sersi as announced during the Marvel portion on the D23 stage. She took to twitter to express her gratitude and excitement.
We also were treated to seeing the characters in their costumes through concept art.
We recently reported that former GAME OF THRONES star, Kit Harrington was set to join a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but is was currently unknown which one. Now thanks to the D23 Expo we know which film that will be.
Harrington will be joining a former GAME OF THRONES co-star, Richard Madden in Marvel Studios THE ETERNALS.
Harington will play non-Eternal Dane Whitman in the pic, which now marks Harington’s next film. THE ETERNALS hits theaters November 6, 2020 release date.
It was no secret that after BLACK PANTHER became a global phenomenon that a sequel was a given. Well Disney made the official announcement during the D23 Expo.
Ryan Coolger, who returns to helm and write the sequel, revealed the news onstage in Anaheim alongside Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige.
Coogler’s return was confirmed in October as details of the sequel emerged after the original became a massive hit, grossed $1.35 billion at the worldwide box office.
Chadwick Boseman starred in the first pic along with Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Latitia Wright, Danai Gurira, Angela Bassett, Winston Duke, Forest Whitaker and Sterling K. Brown.
From incredibly smashing to professor & cool in AVENGERS; ENDGAME we all at one point or another enjoyed the various phases of the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well now we getting more green in the universe as it was just announced at the D23 Expo that Hulk’s cousin SHE HULK will be getting her own live action series on the upcoming Disney Plus streaming platform from Marvel Studios.
In the comics, She-Hulk, or Jennifer Walters, is the cousin of Bruce Banner, whose superhuman powers transferred to her when she received a transfusion of Banner’s blood. She is also a lawyer who still practices law all while being a superhero.
This series can open up the door for some hilarious interactions with the gamma radiated cousins.
Marvel Studios setting up two new phases had many wondering which would be the next. There are many cult favorites that people were hopeful for and it seems to be coming to fruition.
MOON KNIGHT is being produced by Marvel Studios as a live action show that is coming to Disney plus. The announcement was made today at the D23 Expo currently happening in Anaheim.
Marvel Studios Kevin Feige, on the D23 stage said that MOON KNIGHT will be an “action adventure series” about a mercenary left for dead in the desert.
This next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going to be a bit more weird and different from what has already been established so this makes sense. it seems that the Warren Ellis run of Moon Knight comics would be perfect for a television series since it shifts between genres in each issues according to Marc Spector’s different personalities. That’s something that could easily be applied to the episodic format and later connect into the larger picture.
There have been many rumors floating around about Keanu Reeves being the perfect person to play Moon Knight, even AVENGERS: ENDGAME co-directors Anthony & Joe Russo even agreed as much. Combine that with the fact that there have been talks about Keanu Reeves taking some kind of role in the MCU, and that certainly raises our eyebrows a bit.
