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.

Disney+ raiding old Marvel cartoon libraries?

Yes! Well, at least in the Netherlands:

Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney Plus may be the new home of some classic Marvel animated television shows. A free trial version of the service in the Netherlands revealed a host of animated shows on the service. Disney has not yet confirmed if these titles are Netherlands exclusive, or if the titles will be available in other countries.

The titles showcased include X-Men ’92 Spider-Man ’94, Spider-Woman ’79, Spider-Man ’81, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, Iron Man ’94, Fantastic Four ’94, Incredible HulkSilver Surfer, and Spider-Man Unlimited.

Although the only reason why I can imagine that they wouldn’t would be for rights reasons. Seems like a no-brainer; not to mention, an instant nostalgia bomb. I can’t wait to see how much Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, the beloved show of my youth, actually sucked! I’m more worried that Incredible Hulk will, though. Nostalgia is a two-bladed weapon.

Welp, they’re absolutely doing Marvel Zombies in WHAT IF…?

That’s pretty clear. Via GeekTyrant:

I’m not gonna guess about the rest of ’em, but Cap-as-zombie is pretty obvious. Not to mention the one that the fans are probably most eager to see. Marvel Zombies is one of those things that ended up being a bit more popular than Marvel expected; bringing them in on WHAT IF…? seems like a no-brainer.

Yes, I am sorry. No, I can see myself out.

What… exactly is WandaVision going to BE?

Is this really going to be a sitcom? Because WandaVision kind of looks like a sitcom. Heck, it looks like the cover art for an independent-press TTRPG about 1950s superheroes.

I’m not objecting, just bemused.

Disney+ announcing more Marvel shows.

Presumably at least some of them are going to be animated, because the three in development being announced are Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk. I dunno about Moon Knight, but even today a stretchy shape-shifter and a Big Green Gal would challenge an episodic series*. Having animators just makes more sense to me.

Do people find the Sony/Disney Spider-Man thing interesting?

I do, myself — but mostly in the context of how they’re eventually going to settle up. …Did I write about this? Oh, right, only on Twitter. Short version is that Disney wants a lot more money out of the Spider-Man/MCU synergy thing, and Sony doesn’t want to give them any. Hard to fault either of ’em, really. Disney did a lot of the heavy lifting for Sony’s product*, but Sony’s product is pretty damned good and Disney has a reputation for being a kind of aggressive black hole when it comes to revenue.

Wesley Snipes cool with neither being Blade, nor having to eat boiled chicken for the rest of eternity.

I’m guessing the latter part from context.

Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige shocked the world at Comic-Con when Mahershala Ali was announced as the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s Blade. Ali takes over for Wesley Snipes, who played the Daywalker in the original trilogy. ComicBook.com has obtained a statement from Snipes, telling fans of his to “chillaaxx” and embrace the new casting.

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.
