Hawkeye Director Clears Up Exactly When the Show Fits in the MCU Timeline
https://www.cbr.com/hawkeye-mcu-timeline-clarification/
Hawkeye series director Rhys Thomas clarifies exactly when the Disney+ show fits into the post-Blip Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.
Rhys Thomas, who directed multiple episodes of Marvel's Hawkeye series (including the first two), has clarified when, exactly, the Disney+ show fits into the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.
Despite fan speculation that Hawkeye takes place in 2025 (two years after the present-day in Avengers: Endgame), Thomas has confirmed the show unfolds in the MCU's version of 2024. "For a period of time, we were going to set it two years out - which would make it 2025 - hence me messing with your minds about the timeline. But it’s [one] year out [from Endgame]," tweeted Thomas.
Hawkeye set photos leaked well ahead of the series' debut showed Clint Barton, Kate Bishop, and Lucky/Pizza Dog in New York City's Chinatown district outside a store with a sign in its window reading "Happy New Year 2025," as well as text referring to it as a Snake Year on the Chinese Zodiac. (The next Snake Year is, indeed, 2025.) However, it wasn't until Hawkeye's marketing campaign confirmed the show takes place right before Christmas that fans had all the pieces they needed to conclude the show picks up in December 2024 and not the early part of 2025.
While the series' main storyline plays out in the post-Blip MCU, Hawkeye's first episode opened with a flashback to a key moment from The Avengers (2012) -- which, in terms of the MCU's timeline, takes place over a decade before the show's present-day. "We wanted to figure out a pivotal moment that made sense for Kate to enter the MCU, especially through her eyes," said producer Trinh Tran when asked why the series' creatives decided to link Kate's backstory with Earth's Mightiest Heroes (Clint included) this way.
Between Clint trying to retire as Hawkeye and Kate aspiring to fight crime herself, the first two episodes of Hawkeye suggest the show may well serve as the swan song for Jeremy Renner's run playing the former in the MCU. Renner, who has jokingly referred to himself as being a "grandpa" of the franchise, is understandably keeping his cards close to the chest for the time being and simply claiming he has "no idea" what the future holds for Clint in the MCU beyond the series' final episode.

Cobie Smulders To Reprise Maria Hill Role in Marvel Series ‘Secret Invasion’
https://deadline.com/2021/12/cobie-smulders-maria-hill-marvel-series-secret-invasion-1234883068/
EXCLUSIVE: Cobie Smulders is set to reunite with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury on Marvel’s Secret Invasion, reprising her her MCU role of Maria Hill.
The Disney+ crossover comic event showcases a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls who have been infiltrating Earth for years. A rep for Marvel declined comment.
Secret Invasion also stars Ben Mendelsohn — reprising his role as Skrull Talos — Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Christopher McDonald and Killian Scott.
Smulders has reprised the role in several Marvel pics including Spider-Man: Far From Home, Captain America: Civil War and every Avengers film. She recently received strong reviews for her portrayal of Ann Coulter in American Crime Story: Impeachment.

WandaVision's Kathryn Hahn Learned Her Agatha Harkness Spinoff's Title When It Was Announced
https://www.cbr.com/wandavision-kathryn-hahn-learned-agatha-spinoff-title/
https://youtu.be/1wtabUbK7KI
Kathryn Hahn reveals that she discovered the name of her WandaVision spinoff series, Agatha: House of Harkness, when it was announced to the public.
Kathryn Hahn discovered the name of her WandaVision spinoff series, Agatha: House of Harkness, when it was announced to the public.
In an interview on The Drew Barrymore Show, Hahn discussed her excitement for reprising her role as Agatha Harkness in the upcoming series and the secrecy involved in working on a Marvel project. "I mean I didn't even know the title of the show until it was released to the public, they keep it so tight," she explained.
Hahn also touched on why the role of Agatha appeals to her and why she wants to continue the character's story arc. "There is something that does feel so badass to be playing like, you know, we think of a witch, and you think of, immediately, you think of a woman who is loud, who is mysterious, who is dangerous because she's complicated and she's misunderstood," she said. "And all that stuff is a real turn-on to me as a performer in terms of digging into this person a little bit more. [I'm] very excited."
Hahn played coy when asked about the potential for the series to introduce Mephisto, who was heavily rumored to be pulling the strings in WandaVision. "I have no idea," she said. "That was like a big thing during WandaVision, but I have no– who knows. I mean, I think right now, like anything, like Marvel, I mean who knows?"
Agatha appeared in WandaVision as a powerful witch who used dark magic in an attempt to steal Wanda Maximoff's abilities. She initially hid behind the persona of Agnes, the nosy neighbor of Westview who always found a way to inject herself into Wanda and Vision's family life. After she was defeated, the series concluded with Agatha being trapped as her character in Westview.
Hahn's performance was praised by critics and fans, with the actor being nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series. "Agatha All Along", the song from WandaVision that revealed Agatha as the antagonist, won an Emmy for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics and recently received a Grammy nod.
Plot details about Agatha: House of Harkness are currently unknown, with the title and the return of Hahn being the only pieces of information about the series. A WandaVision spinoff show centered on Agatha was announced back in October, with the official title reveal coming as a part of Disney+ Day the following month.

Disney+ Cuts Two Pre-MCU Marvel Films From Its Lineup
https://www.cbr.com/disney-plus-pre-mcu-marvel-fantastic-four-cut/
Two classic Fox Marvel films are no longer available to stream on Disney+, and the reason why isn't totally clear.
Disney+ subscribers looking to watch either 2005's Fantastic Four or 2007's Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer will have to look elsewhere, as the two films have seemingly been removed from the platform.
At this time, it's not totally clear why the two movie left Disney+ on Dec. 1. Josh Trank's maligned Fantastic Four reboot is still available on the platform, alongside the two animated series based on Marvel's First Family. However, rights issues for streaming can be complicated, so it's possible Fantastic Four and Rise of the Silver Surfer will eventually end up back on Disney+. Both removed films are also still available to stream on Peacock.
Directed by Tim Story, 2005's Fantastic Four was the first live-action film based on the titular superheroes to receive an official release. The movie starred Ioan Gruffudd as Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic, Jessica Alba as Sue Storm/Invisible Woman, Chris Evans as Johnny Storm/Human Torch, Michael Chiklis as Ben Grimm/Thing and Julian McMahon as Victor Von Doom. Fantastic Four proved a moderate success at the box office, earning $333.5 million against a budget of between $87.5 and $100 million. However, the movie did not fare well with critics, and its score on Rotten Tomatoes currently sits at 27 percent.
Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer were both distributed by 20th Century Fox and come from an era when Disney and Marvel Studios did not own the rights to the characters. However, in 2019, Disney bought 21st Century Fox, thus giving Marvel Studios the rights to the Fantastic Four. Soon after, Marvel Studios announced work on a Marvel Cinematic Universe Fantastic Four film, which Spider-Man trilogy director Jon Watts will helm. There is no casting information for that film at this time.
Created by comics legends Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the Fantastic Four first appeared in a 1961 self-titled series. Over the years, the team has had a number of different members. The core Fantastic Four, though, has generally consisted of Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch and Thing. At the start of their adventures, the four get their powers after being exposed to cosmic rays during a mission into outer space.
