Some interesting MCU Phase 4 stuff to unpack.

And before anybody says anything: look, folks, they’ve been setting it up for a bunch of movies now that people besides Thor can wield Mjolnir. As I understand the comics, if they follow them then Jane Foster will eventually become a Valkyrie or something anyway. At any rate, they haven’t even started filming Thor: Love and Thunder; none of this is gonna be written in stone.

Alien Nation project put on hold by Disney.

Well, this is odd.

Disney has decided hit the pause button on Fox’s remake of 1988’s science-fiction thriller “Alien Nation.”

:snip:

The “Alien Nation” movie project is being put on hold rather than being put into turnaround, three months after Disney completed its $71.3 billion acquisition of much of 21st Century Fox’s film and television assets.

Filming has begun on the Black Widow movie.

GeekTyrant has a link to the Twitter account that leaked some pictures from the set. Short version… she’s dressed in black and has red hair. Braided, which means that it’s longer than average.

The Captain Marvel Honest Trailer.

It’s very insightful — which is to say, it matched my opinion of the movie. I never thought that Captain Marvel was actually bad for what it was, which was a Marvel origin story. It occurs to me that that’s the problem that most Marvel origin stories had: they’re only origin stories, instead of the ‘superhero + something else’ model that the best MCU flicks have*.

The new Frozen 2 DCU trailer.

I’m teasing about Frozen 2. They’re not going to put together Disney: Princess Avengers. But I’d watch that if they did.

…Clobbering time? 2022 Fantastic Four movie rumors abound.

MoeLane.com cannot confirm, but will eagerly quote, the following:

The GWW is hearing, but cannot confirm, that Marvel Studios is aiming for a 2022 release for the ‘Fantastic Four’ reboot. Sources also say that ‘Ant-Man’ director Peyton Reed is pushing to direct, and has already pitched his vision for the movie to Feige multiple times. Reed’s pitch includes a 1960s setting that involves the Quantum Realm, and possibly The Black Knight.

I would not be really down with a HYPOTHETICAL Deadpool/Spidey MCU movie.

Despite GeekTyrant’s reaction to the possibility. Wouldn’t really work, anyway. Spider-Man is still Sony, even if Deadpool is Disney/Marvel now; and I cannot imagine that Ryan Reynolds and his crew are going to be willing to do the PG-13 version that Sony would expect*. And, comes right down to it: the tone would be off. On both sides. I don’t know what the hell Spider-Man would do with a Deadpool. Shoot, I don’t know what Deadpool would do with a Spider-Man, and neither would he.

Mind you, if they want to release Deadpool Rifftrax or something to MCU and Spider-verse flicks, well, I could be down with that.

*Neither side would wrong, by the way. Sony is doing well for itself by making Spider-Man movies that I could take my kids to see; and Reynolds et. al. are doing well for themselves by making hysterical R-rated Deadpool flicks. There’s no shame in the fact that there’s no overlap.

All right, I’ll ask: straight-up, what was the attraction of a live-action Aladdin?

Because I just ain’t seeing it: “The Walt Disney Co.’s live-action remake of “Aladdin” crushed the competition at the box office this Memorial Day weekend, earning more than $207 million worldwide since its debut.” But here’s the important thing: a live-action Aladdin clearly resonated with people, because it’s making money. And since I don’t know why, clearly I need to be told why, so that I can apparently become less ignorant.

So. What’s the draw here? Again, straight-up. No need to justify it, if you wanted to see it. Just tell me what I missed.
