The official THE NEW MUTANTS trailer.

(Via Geeks Are Sexy): Straight-up Marvel mutant horror. I’m down with it. As mentioned earlier, the Mouse apparently said “Let the director have his cut,” so suddenly it was out of Development Hell and back on the glidepath for an April release. I find their lack of lack of faith… disturbing.

NEW MUTANTS is back, and …unspoiled.

NEW MUTANTS is coming out in April of this year, after all. Some day I want to hear what happened with this movie. I get the impression that stuff went down:

The development of this film has been on a long journey and while it was still at Fox, there were plans for some heavy reshoots and the release of the film kept getting delayed. As far as I know, those reshoots never happened and once the film ended up at Disney we were waiting to see if any of the planned reshoots would happen under their watch. Well, it looks like Disney won’t be doing any reshoots.

Director Josh Boone recently confirmed in a conversation on Twitter that this movie will be the original version of the film that he always intended on making. Boone was asked if this would be the OG version of the movie that he shot. The director responded with, “I wouldn’t be promoting it here if it wasn’t.”

I must say: the Mouse has a much lighter hand than I expected. At least in some cases. I’m still astounded that they let ROGUE ONE end… appropriately. Go figure, huh?

WANDAVISION, PHINEAS AND FERB Disney+ news.

ComingSoon noticed from the Disney+ video below that WANDAVISION is being bumped up a year, which is nice — but that’s not the big thing for me. Nooooo, the big thing?

THERE’S GOING TO BE A NEW PHINEAS AND FERB MOVIE. This is news to me. Awesome news.

Marvel TV taken over by Marvel Studios.

It was… inevitable.

Marvel Television has a new home.

The TV arm of Marvel Entertainment is being folded into the Marvel Studios group. Current development — Hulu’s slate of animated comedies and live-action drama Helstrom — will remain on course. However, no further development will come from the unit overseen by Jeph Loeb. The exec, who launched Marvel into live-action scripted TV originals as head of Marvel Television, will remain on board during the transition. It is unclear when Loeb’s last day will be. His departure from Marvel has been expected since late October.

Robert Downey’s gonna do some animated voice work for WHAT IF…?

Well, sure.

In a recent interview with BuzzfeedThor: Ragnarok star Jeff Goldblum has confirmed that Robert Downey Jr. will be returning to the MCU in Disney+’s upcoming animated TV series What If…?, reprising his iconic role by lending his voice to the the animated version of Tony Stark/Iron Man. Goldblum revealed that his character Grandmaster will be featured in the same episode as Iron Man and Taika Waitti’s Korg.

Voice work’s a lot easier than voice and camera work, and Robert Downey can have a damned cheeseburger while he’s doing it, too. Easy money, folks. Easy money, the fans will love it, and he won’t have to do any close-ups of his head. If there’s a downside, it’s not immediately obvious.

Watched Episode 1 of THE MANDALORIAN.

It did not suck! I was wondering if it would. But THE MANDALORIAN’s first episode, at least, delivers the goods on action. I just hope that they don’t do something stupid, like make the actor take his helmet off or decide that he doesn’t really need to be a hyper-professional bad-ass if that gets in the way of him having feelings. He should be a hyper-professional bad-ass who’s so good he can shoot around his feelings. That’s what they did in the first episode, and it worked out OK.

‘Course, that was just the first episode. Later ones might suck. Call no show good until its cancellation.

So, there *will* be an ANT-MAN 3, then.

I was wondering.

The Ant-Man corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will continue to be Peyton Reed’s Place. The director, who helmed 2015’s Ant-Man and 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, has signed on to helm a third Ant-Man movie, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Disney+ will let subscribers download streaming content.

Well, that’s helpful. My kids are currently waiting patiently for GRAVITY FALLS again*; the news that we’ll be able to download the seasons and still be able to watch them even if they go off the Disney+ rotation is welcome. It all goes away if you stop subscribing, of course. Because the Mouse ain’t stupid.

*Phineas and Ferb, myself. And, you know, obviously.

The Obligatory STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER trailer.

I know, I know. This is not a welcome cultural artifact, for many of you. But I still retain a stubborn liking for the films. It’ll all be moot in three months anyway, because then STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER will be out and the Empire will smoothly segue to churning out TV shows until the sun runs out of hydrogen to fuse into helium. And, truly: is that not amusing, in and of itself? I submit to you that it is.
