UPCOMING MARVEL SLATE OF PROJECTS
TOP NEWS STORY OF THE WEEK
Marvel Developing Nova Project With Moon Knight Writer
While Guardians of the Galaxy first teased the Nova Corps back in 2014, Deadline is reporting that fan-favorite Marvel hero Nova will finally be getting their own project from Moon Knight writer Sabir Pirzada. The outlet notes that it isn't known at this point if the project is being developed as a Marvel Studios film or a TV series, but just earlier this month, reports emerged that Marvel was moving forward on a new space-themed project, with it being possible that a Nova TV series is that secretive project. Moon Knight is slated to debut on Disney+ on March 30th.
Loki’s New Bosses Offer First Information on Season 2
While Kate Herron directed Season 1 of the show, with Michael Waldron serving as the head writer, she won't be returning for the next round of episodes. Instead, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead will helm a number of episodes for Season 2 after tackling several for Moon Knight. And as it turns out, the directing duo finds their similar status in the MCU appealing. "We know that the thing that appeals to us about Loki and Moon Knight specifically, it's just among the MCU, they feel like outsiders," Benson said. "And there's something about that that we really relate with."
Because both characters are outsiders, their shows allow the creators behind the shows to push the boundaries of superhero storytelling. Early Moon Knight reviews have positively pointed to this unique nature, and Season 1 of Loki was widely praised for its idiosyncratic approach to the MCU. And according to Moorhead, the only reason Loki and Moon Knight were even able to get made is thanks to their atypical energy.
"I think the biggest thing about Loki is just that it's actually a lot like Moon Knight, where there's just no reason to do it if it's not going to be something new and fresh," Moorhead said. "[What's] funny is, it does feel like Marvel would be willing to walk away unless it actually is something that they felt the unexpected. Like from Moon Knight, and especially because Moon Knight is a character where nobody knows almost anything about him yet. Soon to be changed, right? And so our gloves are off and we get to kind of do whatever we want. And everybody at Marvel and ourselves gets really excited when we are presented with the unexpected. We also, of course, hope that people watching feel the same way and we're gonna bring all that to Loki."
Disney+ is restoring Falcon and the Winter Soldier after alternate cut was uploaded to platform
Sharp-eyed Marvel fans watching The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+ this week noticed something a bit off: Some of the more violent scenes in the superhero series appeared to be edited to tone down the content.
While some assumed this meant Disney+ was censoring violent content on the streaming platform, perhaps due to the new parental control options made available to subscribers, EW has learned that an alternate version of the show had been uploaded by mistake. Disney is currently working to fix the issue.
The Direct was one of the first on social media to point out the discrepancy. Two scenes in the show's third episode were among those cited by commenters online.
