Marvel's I Am Groot Release Date Revealed on New Poster


Marvel Studios has released the first poster for I Am Groot, the upcoming animated Disney+ Original Series. The poster confirms that I Am Groot will debut on the streaming service on August 10th. As the title suggests, the cartoon spotlights Groot, the floral colossus of the Guardians of the Galaxy, in his "Baby Groot" form. The series is made up of shorts that see Baby Groot getting into and out of trouble in a world of photorealistic animation. Vin Diesel returns to voice Groot and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is one of the show's executive producers.




Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Crosses $900 Million at the Worldwide Box Office


At the end of last month, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness officially passed The Batman to become the highest-grossing movie of 2022. While the Marvel film has some new competition with Top Gun: Maverick, it's still having success at the box office. The Sam Raimi-directed MCU flick has officially crossed $900 million at the worldwide box office. 


Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness has earned an estimated $909.4 million as of Sunday. $388.7 million of the total is from the domestic box office while $520.7 million comes from the international box office. The movie managed to hit $900 million after five weekends without ever being released in China or Russia.


Deadpool 3 Writers Reassure Fans That Wade Wilson Won't Be 'Disney-fied'

Deadpool 3 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick promise fans the Wade Wilson they know and love isn't getting the Disney treatment.


The pair spoke to The Playlist and were asked about the story-based issues and concerns that have arisen from the merger of 21st Century Fox and Disney. Reese answered, "It was Fox, all these different people, and now it's not those people anymore. It's these [Disney] people and these people do things their way. And we were used to doing things our way, so there are differences, but I think the great part is that Marvel's been incredibly supportive." Reese continued, "They are gonna let Deadpool be Deadpool, you know? It's not like any particular joke may be the one that they say, 'you know, that's too far.'" That could happen, but to this point, it's been nothing but support."


On what the support they have received from Marvel Studios actually looks like, Reese said, “It's been nothing but, 'How can we help you?’ ‘What from our universe would you like to use? How, how can we make your life easy?’ And we're gonna let Deadpool be Deadpool. We're not… this is not going to be the Disney-fied Deadpool. So they're awesome, and now it's up to us to come through and justify that faith."


Marvel's Thunderbolts Movie Adds Jake Schreier as Director


The Marvel Cinematic Universe's long-gestating Thunderbolts project is finally on its way to becoming a reality. On Thursday, reports indicated that Jake Schreier has been tapped to direct an upcoming Thunderbolts movie, with Black Widow's Eric Pearson set to write the script and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige set to produce.


It is unclear at this point who could make up the cast of Thunderbolts, a team that traditionally consists of supervillains and antiheroes going on missions, initially to convince the general public that they are operating as heroes. The first comic incarnation of the team was led by Baron Zemo, with other members including Songbird, Moonstone, Taskmaster, U.S. Agent, Crossbones, Abomination, Ghost, and more. The team gets its namesake from General Thunderbolt Ross (William Hurt), but following Hurt's passing earlier this year, it's anyone's guess as to how that aspect of the storyline could be handled.

Marvel Studios To Skip San Diego Comic-Con 2022 (Exclusive)


Multiple sources have informed OTN that Marvel Studios will not be holding a panel at San Diego Comic-Con this year and no new announcements are planned for the convention. Sources tell us that Disney is looking to focus on the D23 Expo 2022 as it’s the first one since the pandemic and that they want the heavy hitters like Marvel to be there.


Marvel Studios has a lot coming up on their slate. With shows like She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, Secret Invasion, and Daredevil or movies like Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and The Marvels, it makes sense for Disney and Marvel Studios to promote these at an in-house event.


D23 Expo 2022 will run from September 9-11 and we can expect new announcements then.
