Marvel Gets First-Ever Oscar Nomination For Acting
Marvel Studios secured its first-ever Oscar nomination for an actor, with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever's Angela Bassett nominated for Best Supporting Actress. This is a big deal for the Marvel film, and shows just how much has changed in the eyes of The Academy that an actor's performance in a comic book movie is worthy enough to be nominated.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever totaled five nominations for the 95th Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actress, Best Original Song, Best Costume Design, Makeup & Hairstyling, and Best Visual Effects.
Along with her Oscar nomination, Angela Bassett also won Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globes, was nominated for a BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actress, and was also nominated for a Directors Guild of America Award for her directorial debut of the Whitney Houston biopic Whitney and directed episodes in the popular horror anthology series American Horror Story.

An Unexpected Title Was Marvel's Most Popular Movie on Disney+ in 2022
A new report reveals more people watched Eternals on Disney+ in 2022 than any other Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film.
According to Nielsen, Eternals was viewed for 4.236 billion minutes in 2022, making it the thirteenth most-streamed film for the year. While several other Disney+ films ranked higher -- including Encanto (27.416 billion minutes viewed), Turning Red (11.427 billion minutes viewed), Moana (8.629 billion minutes viewed), Hocus Pocus 2 (5.697 billion minutes viewed), Frozen (5.133 billion minutes viewed), Luca (4.974 billion minutes viewed), Zootopia (4.437 billion minutes viewed) and Coco (4.253 billion minutes viewed) -- Eternals is both the first MCU and superhero film to appear on the list. Others mentioned include Sing 2 (11.347 billion minutes viewed on Netflix), The Adam Project (6.141 billion minutes viewed on Netflix), Don't Look Up (5.141 billion minutes viewed on Netflix), The Gray Man (4.972 billion minutes viewed on Netflix), Frozen II (4.195 billion minutes viewed on Disney+) and Uncharted (4.179 billion minutes viewed on Netflix).

Thunderbolts Will Serve as Black Widow's Official Sequel
Following Natasha Romanoff's seemingly permanent death in Avengers: Endgame, Johansson's lethal assassin returns in Phase Four's Black Widow-centric solo film. However, a sequel to the 2021's film has been absent from the Marvel Cinematic Universe's slates for Phase Five and Six. In a recent Instagram post to promote the new Art of Black Widow, Marvel Studios Director of Visual Development Andy Park revealed that Thunderbolts will act as a sequel to Black Widow. The film is slated for July 26, 2024, release as part of Phase Five.
Although the plot for the upcoming film is still unknown, fans can expect the return of many fan-favorite characters. The team, assembled by CIA Director Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), will consist of six members: Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Red Guardian (David Harbour), John Walker/U.S. Agent (Wyatt Russell), Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko), Ava Starr/Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Harrison Ford will play General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, reprising his role after debuting in Captain America: New World Order.
