Doctor Doom movie dead. At Fox.

At least, that’s the word: “…Fox has been developing films for Gambit, X-Force, and Doctor Doom for quite awhile, but according to a recent report… those movies are all dead thanks to the upcoming Fox and Disney merger.”  ‘Recent report’ being a tweet, but OK.  It’s 2019, that’s how this stuff goes now.

Tweet of the Day, Disney Does What Needs Doing In Mary Poppins edition.

Mad respect, as the kids say.

Shouldn’t surprise me that Disney managed this.  They are, after all, Disney.  They’ve been making fantasy movies for decades, and what they didn’t develop in-house they bought, often with the original studios intact.  There’s institutional knowledge there, is what I’m saying.

The ‘Huh. I missed this Captain Marvel trailer’ trailer.

This is actually all right.  Cocky, powerful, foreshadowing that she’s going to overreach and then have to learn some humility; they’re more or less ripping off Thor here, but that’s OK.  The real worry for me, honestly, was that they’d Mary-Sue Captain Marvel right from the start and then things would get tedious in Endgame.  If they’re going to instead use this movie to make her get her head on a swivel then that’ll do.

I think Kevin Feige will bow out after Avengers: Endgame.

Why?  Not specifically because of this quote:

“The notion of the characters coming back is great. It’s nice when a company that created all these characters can have access to all those characters. It’s unusual not to. But in terms of actually thinking about it and actually planning things, we haven’t started that yet.”

Hold up: this is a *Guy Ritchie*-directed live-action Aladdin?

Apparently.  …Oh.  Well.  That is, well, somewhat unexpected.  Guy Ritchie is a director who makes films that appeal to me, if apparently not that many other people these days;  I had a lot of fun at The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and King Arthur.

So, I dunno.  Maybe there’ll be a gun battle or two?  I’d pay good money to have this flick suddenly shift to a modern-day street score with a snap of the genie’s fingers.  Oh my God, but that would actually be amazingly good.  I’m now almost mad that they’re not going to do that, in fact.  At least it wouldn’t be boring.

The Obligatory ‘Avengers Endgame’ Trailer post.

Here we go, folks.

Final roll of the dice.  Oh, sure, Captain Marvel drops before then, and that will be something to observe.  But Avengers: Endgame is where Marvel/Disney demonstrates whether they’ve been wasting our time up until now.  Guess we’ll see in April!

PS: Paul Rudd is just about perfect there at the end, mind you.

Phase Two Of The Great Marvel Fan-Madness to break out this weekend.

[Geek Tyrant] puts it succinctly enough: “Multiple sources confirmed that the trailer was supposed to drop today, but I found out this morning that the trailer has been pushed to Friday, December 7th. …It’s also being reported by Collider that the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home will drop this Saturday, December 8th during the Sony Panel at Comic-Con Experience in São Paulo, Brazil, and it will then make its way online shortly after.”  The reason for this?  GHWB’s lying-in-state — and there are any number of people who are doubly grinding their teeth over that, let me tell you*.

Marvel reportedly to drop Captain Marvel, Avengers 4 trailers this week.

The Time of the Universal Losing of the Excrement is upon us, in other words:

According to entertainment YouTuber John Campea, Marvel Studios will debut the new trailer for Captain Marvel at halftime during tomorrow’s Monday Night Football matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington football team.

Marvel fans and bloggers Daniel RPK and Manabyte have also been dropping teases all week, confirming the Captain Marvel news in the wake of Campea’s tweet. They also purported that the Avengers 4 trailer will be coming on Wednesday, December 5th, possibly during the episode of Good Morning America.

So, it’s official: Disney+ to do Loki shows.

They’re calling the Disney streaming service ‘Disney+’ now, in case that wasn’t obvious.  Anyway, this comes from the company, and it’s been hinted at before: (more…)
