WEEKLY MARVEL STUDIO NEWS [56:58]
MCU – MARVEL STUDIOS
Marvel Pushes Pause On ‘Thunderbolts’ Production Due To Writers Strike
EXCLUSIVE: Marvel Studios is delaying filming on another upcoming production as Deadline has learned that the studios’ Thunderbolts pic has pushed pause on the upcoming production, which was set to start shooting in three weeks in Atlanta. The crew was notified today and insiders say that the plan is to resume production once the strike has ended.

RIP Ray Stevenson
Played the Punisher in Punisher: Warzone. Also Volstagg. Died Sunday May 21 after a sudden illness.
Deadpool 3 has started filming–and Ryan Reynolds isn’t allowed to improvise
While the rules say that actors can improvise lines on films during the strike, the rules about writers being allowed to write lines for a production right now are a lot more strict. And Reynolds is, indeed, officially a writer on Deadpool 3, having previously picked up a writing credit on Deadpool 2—basically on the strength of how much of his own dialogue he improvises. Which means that, at least hypothetically, any deviations from the movie’s script by him could constitute strike-breaking under the rules of the Guild. If he gets reported, he could hypothetically try to argue that he’s only fulfilling his roles on the film as an actor or producer—although multi-hyphenate writer-producers have been specifically asked not to do anything even remotely writer-ly on their projects right now—but that “written by” credit is going to be a tricky obstacle to get around.
Loki Season 2: Disney+ Confirms Major Change In MCU Release Strategy
During Disney's 2023 Upfront event, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed Loki Season 2 will premiere on October 6, which curiously signals a major departure from the MCU's previous Disney+ release strategy.
Strangely enough, this release date has the Tom Hiddleston-led season premiering its first episode on a Friday, despite Disney+ traditionally debuting new episodes of its Marvel, Star Wars, and other original series on Wednesdays.
Loki Season 2's premiere date of Friday, October 6, falls on the Columbus Day holiday weekend, indicating the shift was made to capitalize on the masses being off work and at home watching TV.
Marvel Studios announced that its next show after Loki Season 2, Echo, will debut its entire six-episode season in historic fashion on Wednesday, November 29, suggesting a one-off shift to a Friday premiere.
At a rate of one episode per week, Loki ought to conclude its six-episode run with an epic finale on November 8, assuming it hops back to Wednesdays. Although this would leave a comfortable three-week window ahead of the November 29 premiere of Echo, it also places the finale just two days apart from The Marvels.
