MARVEL STUDIOS WEEKLY NEWS [44:01]
MCU – MARVEL STUDIOS
Kevin Feige Wants to Prevent 1 Thing With Marvel VFX
In an interview with The Direct, Ms. Marvel VFX supervisor Kevin Yuille said that Feige specifically provided direction that led to the development of the visual style of the Clandestine's Veil in the series. "[Kevin Feige] inserts his creative ideas into everything," Yuille said. "So, he and Victoria Alonso, they're the masterminds of the MCU, so of course, there were definitely notes. I don't want to get into specifics, but that definitely influenced the look of the Clandestine's Veil and some of the decisions in that scene in order to tell a story."
Marvel Studios Has Hired an Official MCU Timeline Keeper
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law head writer and producer Jessica Gao told The Direct that Marvel Studios has someone whose job it is to maintain continuity within MCU projects and ensure a cohesive timeline. Gao mentioned this when asked about where She-Hulk falls in the MCU timeline, saying, "It’s definitely after– post-Endgame. There actually is a Marvel person whose job it is to trace the timeline of everything. And we checked with him a lot about where the timing is. And so it's like... the show is a few years after Endgame."
Marvel's Hailee Steinfeld Returning In Multiple MCU Projects
As reported by The Direct, the Hawkeye actor is expected to return after being included in an article on the official Disney Latino website about Marvel superheroes you need to know before seeing Phase 5 of the MCU. The now-deleted list included the following entry on the Marvel archer: "Kate Bishop, a character played by actress Hailee Steinfeld, was introduced to the public in the Hawkeye series and is one of the members of the Young Avengers in the comics. An admirer of Clint Barton / Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), the young woman decides to follow in his footsteps. Besides being an archer, Kate is also an excellent fighter, with knowledge of different martial arts, as well as being an excellent fencer."
Florence Pugh's Black Widow Will Reportedly Lead the MCU's Thunderbolts
During a recent appearance on Matthew Belloni's The Town podcast, Justin Kroll of Deadline discussed Marvel Studios' Thunderbolts, describing the upcoming film as a Pugh-led spinoff. "[Florence Pugh] has got the Marvel superhero that's already got a spin-off," Kroll said. "Upcoming for her, actually, on that character is this Thunderbolts film, which is basically Marvel's Suicide Squad. Hopefully, it has better results. But the concept is it'd be her leading the team of like Wyatt Russell's [John Walker], Daniel Bruhl's [Zemo], those anti-heroes that aren't exactly good but aren't exactly bad. So there's that. And people seem to like the Yelena character."
Echo Star Confirms the MCU Series Has Wrapped Filming
Ben Kingsley to Reprise Trevor Slattery Role in Marvel Studios’ Wonder Man Series at Disney+
While details on Marvel's small screen take on the classic character Simon Williams, a.k.a. Wonder Man, have been scarce since the initial reports of its development this past June, the series can now point to its first cast member; a familiar one at that. Indeed, Variety has reported that Kingsley will reprise his role as Trevor Slattery on the upcoming Wonder Man television series, although the nature of the character's involvement on the show remains a mystery. Regardless, the series will mark a third run for the esteemed Academy Award-winning actor, having played the picaresque part in 2013's Iron Man 3, and, after a long hiatus, in 2021's Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
‘She-Hulk’ Star Ginger Gonzaga Sold Her Own Clothes to the Show’s Costume Department
Gonzaga, who plays Nikki Ramos on the Marvel Cinematic Universe series, told The Hollywood Reporter about how her performance in the series was impacted by wardrobe. "I didn't feel comfortable as Nikki unless she was wearing something a little defiant or something that she shouldn't be wearing at work or something that's a little too high fashion and really racks up her credit cards," she said, crediting She-Hulk costume designer Ann Foley for her willingness to collaborate with her. The actor's input on Nikki's fashion choices was so influential that the studio began buying Gonzaga's personal clothes from her for use in the show. "I lost a lot of [my] wardrobe on this job, but they paid me for it," Gonzaga said with a laugh.
Disney+ Confirms Loki Season 2's Rating
According to The Direct, Loki Season 2 has been rated TV-14, which is the same rating Season 1 received back in 2021. The second season of What If...? also landed a TV-14 rating. Almost all of Marvel Studios' Disney+ series have been rated TV-14, essentially PG-13 for television, except for Ms. Marvel and I Am Groot, which received TV-PG ratings since they were aimed at younger audiences. Marvel is expected to debut its first TV-MA show with the animated series Marvel Zombies.
Marvel Paid a 'Heavy Price' to Use X-Men: TAS' Iconic Theme Song for the Reboot
During an appearance at the Steel City Con in Pennsylvania, X-Men '97 consultant Eric Lewald revealed Disney and Marvel Studios paid a "heavy price" for the rights and had to jump through a number of hurdles.
"[The X-Men: The Animated Series theme song] wasn't a done deal necessarily when they were producing the new show," Lewald said. "The rights were all over the place. I think a secondary person had the rights to the music, so it was a negotiation for them. Obviously, you can't do the new show without that song... But the guy selling it knew the same thing, so I'm sure it was a heavy price."
Will Ms. Marvel's Clandestines Return? VFX Artist Shares the Answer
In an interview with The Direct, Ms. Marvel's VFX Supervisor Kevin Yuille revealed that the Clandestines are 100% dead and that the VFX team worked hard to make sure that the Veil scene made it look like they were dying instead of going back to their world. "As far as the crystalizing, that’s another thing that had gone through so many versions. There was this decision that, for storytelling, they didn’t want them to look like they were going back to their world," he revealed. "So, if we broke them up like hard light and they break up and they turn into these pretty little dots, it almost looks like 'They made it! Oh, they’re home!' So they’re like 'No! We gotta make sure they look dead!' It’s tough to do a shot like that, and you worry about looking cartoon-y, but that was for storytelling, to say absolutely, 100%, they did not make it."
