The MORBIUS trailer.

I’m not entirely certain that it’s good for Jared Leto to be given roles where you know that he’s going to go straight to the capital of F*cked-Up Head-space Land and go buy a house there; and yet, here we are. An obsessed vampire dude? Sure, OK, glad I wasn’t working on that set.

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?

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.

The BLACK WIDOW teaser trailer.

Just dropped.

First impression: there is clearly a lot of stuff going in this that I’m missing because I didn’t grow up on Marvel. But I’m used to that. I’m also sure that the Easter eggs will all be explained to me by lunchtime.

The MARVEL RUNAWAYS third (and final season) trailer.

Best not to strain too hard on this one, methinks. Better three good seasons of RUNAWAYS instead of three good ones and n crap ones. Obviously, this is on Hulu: it’ll probably stay there, too, given that Disney owns it now.

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.

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.

Some details on the BLACK WIDOW flick.

Does involve Budapest; set between CIVIL WAR and INFINITY WAR; and will supposedly offer closure. Ehh, I don’t want “closure” in the BLACK WIDOW movie. I’m actually fine with how the character originally died: in the shadows, doing a very unpleasant job so that somebody else wouldn’t have to. Nah, what I want is a very kinetic action film where Black Widow can finally cut loose a little for more than a minute at a time.

I TOLD YOU ALL Sony would deal and give up 25% of Spider-Man to Disney. I DID.

I absolutely did. August 23rd.

I figure that Sony will try to seriously hold Disney to getting 20% or 25%, instead of the 5% that the Mouse is getting now. Since Disney was asking for 50%, that may even be doable.
