‘Spider-Man’ Spinoff Series ‘Silk’ Lands Order At MGM+ & Amazon With Angela Kang As Showrunner; Forms Part Of Suite Of Marvel Series From Sony TV
Sony controls over 900 Marvel characters as part of an arrangement that pre-dates Disney’s acquisition of Marvel and many of the Marvel characters are heading to the small screen after MGM+, the linear network formerly known as Epix, and Amazon Prime Video ordered a suite of live-action series from Sony Pictures Television.
Spider-Man spinoff series Silk: Spider Society, which has been in the works for some time, will be the first show to emerge from the pact with The Walking Dead’s Angela Kang set as showrunner.
The deal is a culmination of a complex web of rights that meant the series will have to debut first on a linear network, in this case MGM+, which is set to be relaunched with its new name in January. MGM+ will have the first window in the U.S. and the series will then air on Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service in the States.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Pushes Disney Over $3 Billion at Box Office for the Year
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is already one of the biggest hits of the year. The film is being greeted with great reviews and a tremendous response from audiences with an 84% Certified Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an A CinemaScore. Now, it seems that the sequel has another accolade to place under its belt. After Wakanda Forever's massive $381 million debut, Disney has officially passed $3 billion at the box office for the year. This marks the 14th year that the studio has hit that milestone, and it passes last years $2.9 billion total. The film combined with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder, Lightyear, and Death on the Nile all contributed to the final number.
Thunderbolts Will Drop a Bomb on the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Marvel's antihero team-up Thunderbolts is reuniting an oddball family, as David Harbour's Red Guardian and Florence Pugh's Yelena Belova join forces again and build on their complicated relationship established in 2021's Black Widow.
Although he has not yet received a script for the Marvel Cinematic Universe project, Harbour spoke to io9 while on the press tour for his new holiday movie, Violent Night, and shared that he knows "the arc of the movie and how it functions...and it’s super cool. The idea is really cool." The actor, best known for his role in Stranger Things, then expressed his excitement about working with Pugh again. "What [director Jake Schreier] wants to do with Florence’s character is very interesting and how I factor into how we develop our relationship is very interesting," he said. Their troubled father-daughter dynamic was teased in Black Widow, but Harbour hints that it will be explored even further in "this movie that’s, you know, kind of ragtag."
‘Wakanda Forever’ Costume Designer Ruth Carter on Film’s New Water Sets: ‘I Had to Weigh Costumes Down so They Wouldn’t Float’
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever costume designer Ruth E. Carter and production designer Hannah Beachler revealed that the film's costumes required weights for its underwater scenes.
In an interview with Variety, Carter shared that since a good portion of the film takes place in the undersea city of Talokan, the crew had to test how the costumes they designed interacted with the water. Weights were eventually added to the outfits to ensure they looked as intended under the ocean. "For the water scenes, we had a 20-foot tank in which we did tests," Carter said. "Divers went down in the water and I had to put them in costumes that included headdresses and capes, just to see what those costumes would do in water, and I ended up putting weights in."

Daredevil: Born Again Reportedly Aiming for a TV-MA Rating
Daredevil: Born Again, the upcoming soft-reboot of Netflix and Marvel's Daredevil series, will be going after the equivalent of television's R rating, according to an industry insider.
"Is Daredevil gonna be TV-MA?" a fan on Twitter asked of industry insider Daniel Ricthman. Richtman, a proven source of reliable leaks, gave a simple, one-word reply: "Likely." This revelation should please fans of the original show. The former Daredevil series stands out from typical Marvel fare with its gritty, realistic depiction of violence and the physical and emotional toll being Daredevil puts on Matt Murdock, the man behind the mask. A TV-MA rating should allow the showrunners to push Daredevil: Born Again even further.
Daredevil's Deborah Ann Woll Still Hasn't Been Asked to Join Born Again
Daredevil star Deborah Ann Woll has confirmed that she still hasn't been asked to feature in Daredevil: Born Again, a reboot of the Netflix show.
On an episode of the Inside of You podcast hosted by Michael Rosenbaum, Woll revealed that she hasn't received any calls from the makers of the Daredevil reboot. "So, as of now, I am not a part of it," the actor confirmed. Woll starred as Karen Page, Matt Murdock's secretary and love interest on the Netflix show that was canceled after three seasons. Woll shared that she would be "thrilled" to be on the show and felt like there was more for her character to explore. "They know where I am. Like I said, I love the character Karen Page. I love telling that story. But it is up to them what kind of story that they want to tell," she added. Karen Page was an integral part of all three seasons of Daredevil and played a significant role in Matt Murdock's life.
AGATHA: COVEN OF CHAOS: MORE STORY DETAILS REVEALED: EXCLUSIVE
Agatha: Coven of Chaos may be at least partially set in Westview, NJ -- the same town where WandaVision took place.
The story was broken by the Illuminerdi, who reported that Agatha: Coven of Chaos will return to Westview. According to the site, "The show seemingly picks up where WandaVision left off, as Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn) will be freed from Wanda’s spell, which imprisoned her in her Westview persona, Agnes. Most interestingly our sources stated that she is freed by a new Coven of Witches. Aubrey Plaza is one of them and according to some casting details it can be assumed that Ali Ahn is also part of them."
MCU – TIMELINE
Will the MCU Ever End? Marvel Studios VP Nate Moore Responds
Marvel Studios' Vice President of Production and Development Nate Moore doesn't see the Marvel Cinematic Universe ending any time soon.
Speaking on The Town with Matthew Belloni podcast, Moore believes that the franchise can continue on for "a long time," insisting that the creative teams behind the MCU still have plenty of stories to tell. "To me, Marvel movies are just movies," said the filmmaker. "Our source material is just… It'd be like saying, 'Hey, are movies about books gonna go on forever?' Probably." Despite this confidence, Moore elaborated by emphasizing that Marvel Studios can't rest easy with the established formula. "I think we have to continue to… We can't sit back on our laurels. We can't think we have the answers. We have to continue to push the envelope as far as genre and what we're willing to explore."
