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.

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.

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.

I have a counter-fan theory on the Gosling/Waititi lunch. [UPDATED.]

[UPDATED: God damn but that’s embarrassing. Lemme wash this egg off my face, and thanks to Constant Reader Zamoose for catching that. Still: Taika Waititi doing a Deadpool flick? That’d be awesome, right? – ML]

First off, though: Ryan Gosling and Taika Waititi, as GeekTyrant itself admits, probably had lunch together because it was Waititi’s birthday. Hey, happy birthday, Taika Waititi! Many happy returns.

Anyway, GeekTyrant would like this to be really about Deadpool being in the next Thor movie. Which… does not work for me, sorry. Wrong theme and style for what Waititi seems to be aiming at in his Thor flicks. I mean, sure, trippy and stuff, but Deadpool is later-day trippy and a good deal more violent than the Jack Kirby vibe Waititi’s going for.

On the other hand? I’d watch a Deadpool flick directed by Waititi. Because he’d go nuts with the source material, embrace the weird, maybe make Vanessa Dea… oh. Oh, my, yes, that would fix the major complication from the last Deadpool really, really nicely. And I’d double watch that movie, then.

But it was probably just a birthday lunch.
