[7:45] Brand new casting indicates Bill Murray will join the MCU in ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

https://www.thecosmiccircus.com/brand-new-casting-indicates-bill-murray-will-join-the-mcu-in-ant-man-and-the-wasp-quantumania/

Thanks to a brand new casting listing on Mandy.com, we see that John Townsend has been cast as a photo double on the production of “Dust Bunny.” Dust Bunny is the production name for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. What’s interesting is the actor name that he is posing as a photo double for. His casting indicates that Mr. Townsend is acting as a photo double on that production for the iconic 80s actor: Bill Murray. Murray’s role at this time, however, is currently undisclosed. What’s interesting about this is that Peyton Reed is actually a fan of Murray’s based on this tweet from earlier in the year.

[10:57] Armor Wars Will Explore War Machine's Past and Future

https://www.cbr.com/armor-wars-explore-war-machine-past-and-future/

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rs4Q6XLPrzA

Don Cheadle discussed his upcoming solo Disney+ series, Armor Wars, and how it will flesh out Rhodey beyond his connection to Tony Stark.

 

The actor spoke to ACE Universe about the show, which has yet to land a release date on the streaming service. Announced back in December, Armor Wars will adapt the popular Marvel Comics story with a twist: Iron Man won't be part of it. Instead, the series will explore the Armored Avenger's best friend and sidekick.

 

"Well, I think that the most exciting part is yet to come," Cheadle said. "I think we don't really have a super-strong idea of who he is really outside of that, sort of, bubble of the Avengers. Out of necessarily his friendship with Tony. And now he's going to kind of be untethered from all of that. So it's an opportunity to really discover who he is in a way that we have not had before; with concentrated time and focus on Rhodey and Rhodey's journey, and with, hopefully, some stuff about his past. And teeing up some things about his potential future. Who knows how long this Marvel thing goes. It seems kinda unending. We might all die on set one day."

 

"What's most exciting is yet to come, and I think those kinds of things were hinted at in Endgame, you know, where this character might go, and things that may be in the offing for him," Cheadle continued. "It's very early in the process of Armor Wars. We just hired my boy Yassir [Lester], which I'm very excited about, [he] wrote on Black Monday. [I've] become really good friends with him and close with him. Great guy. A lot of great ideas. But honestly, we're just really trying to crack the spine of what it's going to be and chop it up. I couldn't really give you the answers if you asked them because we're super in the clay mode right now."

 

[19:17] Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur

https://www.marvel.com/articles/tv-shows/disney-channel-moon-girl-devil-dinosaur-cast

https://twitter.com/DisneyTVANews/status/1447981238577422345

 

We previously revealed that the Disney Channel announced Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur animated series at D23 2019. We're now excited to share that they've found their cast!

Actress and singer Diamond White will star as Lunella Lafayette (aka Moon Girl) in the channel's highly anticipated animated series, slated to premiere in 2022.

But that's not all; also joining the lead cast are:

  • Alfre Woodard (Marvel's Luke Cage) as Lunella's grandmother, Mimi
  • Libe Barer as Lunella's best friend and manager, Casey
  • Sasheer Zamata as Lunella's mom, Adria
  • Jermaine Fowler as Lunella's dad, James Jr.
  • Fred Tatasciore (Marvel's Avengers Assemble) as the one-and-only Devil Dinosaur
  • Gary Anthony Williams as Lunella's grandfather, Pops.

Series executive producer Laurence Fishburne (Ant-Man and The Wasp) will voice the recurring role of The Beyonder, a curious and mischievous trickster.

 

[25:08] RUMOR: Shang-Chi Spinoff Series Centered on Xialing's Ten Rings in Development

https://www.cbr.com/rumor-shang-chi-spinoff-in-development/

https://thedirect.com/article/marvel-shang-chi-disney-plus-spin-off-ten-rings-sister-rumors

Source 1: While most Marvel Cinematic Universe fans expected to see Xialing and the Ten Rings in a Shang-Chi sequel, a new report suggests there are other plans in store. Scooper Daniel Richtman, also known as DanielRPK, seemingly revealed that a Ten Rings series is in development at Disney+ with Zhang's Xialing as the series lead.

 

Source 2: Daniel Richtman , a reliable scooper, shared on his Patreon that a spinoff featuring the Ten Rings organization from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is in development over at Marvel Studios. Richtman also revealed that Meng'er Zhang's Xialing would serve as the lead character for the planned spinoff series, which, if officially greenlit, would stream on Disney+.

 

[28:23] What If...? Writer Explains Why [SPOILER] Isn't a Plot Hole at All

https://www.cbr.com/what-if-ultron-infinity-stones-not-plot-hole/

https://twitter.com/TheAshBradley/status/1445078626697760770

 

Bradley's tweet essentially explains the stones power Ultron himself, and it's therefore Ultron's own power that has allowed him to wreak havoc across the multiverse, not the stones, and therefore sidesteps the issue of just where one universe's Infinity Stones would have any power.

 

[31:02] RUMOR: Howard the Duck Animated Series In the Works

https://www.cbr.com/howard-the-duck-animated-series-rumor/

According to an anonymous 4Chan user, Disney is in the early stages of development on a cartoon show starring Howard. It will be one of the first projects by the recently launched Marvel Studios Animation and will star see Seth Green reprise his role as the title character. Additionally, Disney is set to officially reveal the show at their Disney+ Day event on Nov. 12 and it is due to release in 2024. This should all be taken with a grain of salt, since the source makes the validity of the claim questionable.

[34:40] Steven S. DeKnight Exits Marvel Citing C.B. Cebulski's Akira Yoshida

https://gizmodo.com/steven-s-deknight-exits-marvel-citing-c-b-cebulskis-a-1847840466

https://www.cbr.com/marvel-steven-deknight-on-cb-cebulski/

Steven DeKnight, a writer and executive producer on Season 1 of Netflix's Daredevil, says he has no plans to work with Marvel until the company addresses the Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski's "Akira Yoshida" controversy.

 

While this news made headlines in 2017, DeKnight -- who's largely preoccupied with his film and television work -- only recently learned about it when it began making the rounds again on Twitter. "How does this man still have a job? Completely unacceptable," DeKnight tweeted. "I had no idea. I love writing for Marvel comics, but this changes the equation. Drastically. There are so many great editors there. To allow a man who climbed to the top through cultural identity theft to remain in that position is unconscionable."
