Tweet of the Day, And So It Begins edition.

Although Deadpool in the MCU is… currently unlikely. They need to resolve the status of the X-Men first. Still, this is no longer impossible:

PS: The Deadpool movies brought in almost 800 million apiece worldwide, off of 58 million and 110 million dollar production budgets. The Mouse can do math.

Florence Pugh joins Black Widow movie.

I dunno, I haven’t seen her on the big screen yet.

Rising actress Florence Pugh is in talks to star opposite Scarlett Johansson in Black Widow, Marvel’s stand-alone feature on the Avengers heroine.

Cate Shortland, the Australian filmmaker perhaps best known for the Nazi drama Lore, is directing the project, which is scheduled to shoot in June in London.

Movie of the Week: Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Why? Because I want to push back a little. I had a good time at Age of Ultron. Yeah, yeah, it’s not the best MCU movie, but watching the Avengers go around and group content their way through dungeons was fun. Everybody likes the individual-hero movies better, sure, but I’m down with the ensemble flicks, too.

So there.

Disney-Fox acquisition date set for 3/20/2019.

March 20, 2019. That’s the day Disney takes possession of Fox. Which means that there’s still a faint, hopeless chance that they will go with my idea for the last Avengers: Endgame Easter egg:

In which I underestimated a MCU movie’s opening weekend. Again.

I said $100-120 million domestic for Captain Marvel: it grossed $154 million domestic, and if it doesn’t beat my $600-800 million total prediction at this point I’d be shocked. That would require, say, everybody who wanted to go see the movie already seeing it last weekend, and that’s even more absurd than apparently my previous guess was. Certainly it’s no longer safe to bet that the movie won’t hit a billion.

My mini-review of Captain Marvel.

Short version: it was fine. Not Winter Soldier fine, but I wasn’t expecting that. I expected popcorn movie, and I got popcorn movie.

Some of the MCU stuff going up on Disney+.

There’s a theme. Can you figure out what it is? Mild spoilers after the fold.

Sources say [Loki] will follow Loki as the trickster and shapeshifter pops up throughout human history as unlikely influencer on historical events.

Marvel had no comment.  

Marvel is working on several series that will debut on Disney+. Other known series are The Vision and Scarlet Witch, being run by Captain Marvel writer Jac Schaeffer, while another will focus on a a team-up of Falcon and Winter Soldier, the heroes played by Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, respectively. Malcolm Spellman (Empire) has been hired to write the latter effort.
