UPCOMING MARVEL SLATE OF PROJECTS
TOP NEWS STORY OF THE WEEK
Marvel Has the Next Decade of MCU Films Already Planned Out
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige promised that the next 10 years of the MCU has already been planned.
During Disney's presentation at CinemaCon 2022, the first looks at Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness -- which has already nabbed $42 million in advance ticket sales -- and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever were shown. Feige also spoke about some exciting projects in the works, including a mysterious 3D movie. He then revealed that he'd just returned from an in-person retreat with the other heads of Marvel Studios, where the team mapped out what's coming to the big screen in the next decade. "In the next 10 years, with existing characters and new characters and new storytelling tools with the multiverse, anything can happen," Feige said.
Feige also revealed that the retreat featured a giant board "that takes us through the next decade [of films] and they are unique and special and they are meant for your theaters." The overall tone of the presentation was one in celebration of the rebound of movie theaters after the blow the industry took during the first year and a half of the COVID-19 pandemic. He cited the theatrical success of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which brought in $1.89 billion globally and netted a reported $610 million in profits. While Marvel Studios is also building out its television offerings on Disney+, Feige promised its biggest stories would still be hitting theaters, meaning Black Widow's day-and-date streaming release will remain a fluke.
Of course, Feige didn't reveal just what Marvel Studios has in store over the next decade, but fans eager to learn more about Phase 4 and beyond have plenty to go on. Beyond the confirmed big and small screen titles, like Thor: Love and Thunder, She-Hulk, The Marvels, Blade, and Fantastic Four, the MCU will reportedly see a Nova/Richard Rider film in the future, with Moon Knight writer Sabir Pirzada attached to tackle the script. This may or may not be separate from a reported cosmic Marvel film that recently popped up on a production listing.
More concrete but without any firm release date or details is the arrival of the X-Men in the MCU. Feige has made no secret that mutants are coming now that Disney owns the film rights to the Marvel characters once controlled by Fox, but there's been no hint as to when they might pop up on the big screen. That said, it seems certain that Patrick Stewart's Professor X is in Multiverse of Madness, so the answer to that and many more questions about the MCU's future may be right around the corner.
MCU – MARVEL STUDIOS
‘Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse’ Fresh Footage Shown At CinemaCon, Part 2’s Title Revealed
Sony dropped the first 15 minutes from its upcoming Marvel animated sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse – Part I today.
In addition the Culver City, CA studio revealed the title of the pic’s sequel (technically the third installment in the animated Marvel series): Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse.
Exclusive: Blade Production Company and Working Title Revealed
The Cosmic Circus can now exclusively report that Blade’s production company is Standoffish Productions LLC. We can also confirm that one of the working titles the project is using is “Perfect Imprints.” According to our information, the movie is currently scheduled to begin to film this July in the Atlanta area.
Standoffish Productions is part of a batch of companies that Marvel registered in 2020 and 2021. Arlyn Murphy of Murphy’s Multiverse reported on this and other companies she had discovered back in November 2020, and later confirmed to be Marvel properties. Until now, all we could do was speculate what project any of these LLCs was for.
MCU Star Confirms Hawkeye's Echo Spinoff Is Now Filming
Hawkeye star Alaqua Cox confirmed that principal photography has commenced on the spinoff series Echo.
Cox, who plays the show's protagonist Maya Lopez, posted a picture on Instagram of flowers she received from Reservation Dogs actor Devery Jacobs, who wished her the best for the first day of filming on 21 April. Aside from providing a concrete start date for shooting on Echo, the post (in particular, a card attached to the bouquet) has also fueled speculation that Jacobs is part of the Disney+ series' cast. Jacobs' involvement with Echo is purely speculation at this stage.
While this recent update confirms that the production is starting to gain momentum, Marvel Studios and Disney+ have remained largely tight-lipped about Echo. Little is known about the plot of the series, although Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously divulged that Echo will pick up immediately after Hawkeye. "[T]he Echo series will be -- we see Maya Lopez go from the end of this series into that series will be the next direct link," Feige explained.
Filming permit applications filed by Echo's location manager Ryan Schaetzle also confirmed that the show won't share Hawkeye's New York City setting. These applications were made to two small towns in Georgia, Grantville and Social Circle, and were ultimately successful. Echo will film in Social Circle in April and Grantville in May, with the scenes involved said to be devoid of "explosions, gunfire, or big stunts."
Arguably the biggest news surrounding Echo is a recent leak that allegedly spoils the inclusion of two major MCU characters in the series. The resume for the show's costume designer Stacy Caballero appears to have unwittingly revealed that both Daredevil and Kingpin will return in Echo, even though actors Charlie Cox and Vincent D'Onofrio are not officially attached to the production.
Cox last appeared as Daredevil's alter-ego Matt Murdock in Spider-Man: No Way Home, while D'Onofrio reprised the role of Wilson Fisk/Kingpin in several episodes of Hawkeye. The pair originated these roles in the Daredevil series that originally aired on Netflix and now streams on Disney+ alongside the other entries in the so-called "Defenders Saga." One of the writers on Echo, Dara Resnik, penned two episodes of Daredevil Season 3, further stoking speculation that the Man Without Fear and his arch-enemy will appear in the upcoming series.

Is the goal another six-episode sort of arc, or could it potentially be longer for season two?
Time will tell.
Disney+ Releases New Daredevil Featurette With Charlie Cox
Disney+ is making it known that Charlie Cox's Daredevil is home with the rest of Marvel's star-studded lineup.
A new featurette was released online to re-introduce the former Netflix series, which now streams along with the rest of the Defenders shows on Disney+. In the featurette, which is mostly action clips from the series, actor Charlie Cox talks about who Matt Murdock is as a character and what the show means to him.

@MarvelUnlimited for the full library of #MoonKnight comics to keep me occupied until next week's episode. Gotta say, loved the backstory in this latest one but would have liked a little more action.
Dr. Gnome to you

@playcomicscasT and 8 others
You guys talking about Tim Curry moves and while he isn't the main character, his performance in Stallone's movie Oscar is entirely worth a watch.
