Daredevil's Charlie Cox Addresses Spider-Man Trailer Forearms Theory
At one point in the No Way Home trailer, Parker is being interrogated by a detective while handcuffed to a desk in a police station. A second man, whose face is not shown but is wearing a white shirt with rolled-up sleeves and a dark necktie, drops a stack of files on the desk in front of Parker. "I can assure you, those are not my forearms,” Cox told


What If...? Star Jeffrey Wright Teases a More Involved Watcher
The latest episode of What If...? sees The Watcher finally talk to one of the characters on the show, as Doctor Strange Supreme detects the being's presence and calls out to him for help. For Wright, the episode was a powerful one and may tease an upcoming breaking point for the multiversal observer.
"In this instance, it speaks to Strange's mystical powers too, that he perceives him there. So there's two sides to that, but also yes, The Watcher is compelled by the danger that Strange is conjuring, obviously not only for himself but for his whole reality," Wright said "For The Watcher, there's only so much he can only watch. He's not a voyeur for voyeurism's sake, he is in some ways made up of these characters. Without them, what does he watch? [Laughs] He's profoundly compelled by them, and maybe there's only so much he can take. We'll see."

Moon Knight: Mark Ruffalo Plays Coy About Theorized Hulk Appearance
Despite a recent fan theory that the Hulk will make a guest appearance on Disney+'s upcoming Moon Knight series, veteran Bruce Banner actor Mark Ruffalo is remaining tight-lipped about whether or not he'll show up in it.
On his Twitter account, Ruffalo gave a self-deprecating response to an article discussing said appearance from the Jade Giant on the show, throwing shade at his own tendency to spoil major Marvel Cinematic Universe events. "As the person who’s responsible for this next phase of the MCU, I would hate to spoil something," Ruffalo tweeted. "I have learned the hard way."

Marvel's Hawkeye TV series on Disney+ will explore the MCU at Christmas.
According to Hawkeye executive producer Trin Tranh, the series is “grounded and funny, packed to the brim with Christmas spirit.”
Tranh’s remarks come from the latest issue of TV Guide, in which she sheds a little light on both the setting and flavor of the next MCU live action show. While we’ve already glimpsed the MCU at Christmastime in Iron Man 3, this will be the first holiday season we spend there after the events of Avengers: Endgame. In other words, it will be the first time we see how the citizens of the MCU are enjoying the holidays after they’ve been reunited with many relatives who had been “snapped” away by Thanos at the climax of Avengers: Infinity War.
