Bill Murray's Mystery Character Fulfills a Crucial Role in Ant-Man 3
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania director promises an epic: 'I don't want to be the palate cleanser anymore'
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania director Peyton Reed says that Bill Murray's enigmatic character from the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film will be a vital part of it.
Reed, speaking to Entertainment Weekly, said that Murray will play someone from Janet van Dyne's past and that the role is crucial, although he didn't reveal the character's name. The director also noted that a wider theme of Quantumania is the secrets that families sometimes keep from one another.

Ant-Man 3's Kang Is the 'Most Powerful Force in the Multiverse'
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania director promises an epic: 'I don't want to be the palate cleanser anymore'
Peyton Reed, director of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, has dished on bringing the powerful villain Kang the Conqueror to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Reed discussed Kang's place in the pantheon of Marvel's greatest villains and how he approached adapting the classic foe to the big screen. "In the comics, Kang has dominion over time, he's a time traveler," Reed said. "His situation is a little bit different in this movie, which I won't spoil for you, but he's someone who, [while] we live very linear lives, from childhood to death, Kang doesn't exist that way. It struck me as interesting to take the tiniest Avengers -- in some people's minds maybe the least powerful Avengers -- and put them up against the most powerful force in the multiverse."

The Marvels Official Synopsis:

Together, this unlikely trio must team-up and learn to work in concert to save the universe as 'The Marvels.'

Fantastic Four: Adam Driver Eyed by Marvel Studios for Lead Role (Rumor)
Marvel Studios is eyeing Adam Driver for Reed Richards in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, if a new rumor is to be believed.
The rumor comes via The Direct, with the outlet claiming that sources close to Fantastic Four named Driver as Marvel Studios' "top casting choice" to play Richards. Marvel Studios is yet to publicly comment on Driver's supposed "front-runner" status for the role, which means this rumor should be taken with a grain of salt for now.

Ant-Man 3 Producer Teases Civil War-Level Consequences
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania's impact on the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be felt through the remainder of The Multiverse Saga.
Per The Direct, Marvel Studios VP of Production & Development Stephen Broussard has stated that the events of Quantumania will be as important to the MCU as the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Sokovia Accords. "We talk about movies like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in which you saw the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D. and it felt like the entirety of the MCU turned on that," he explained. "Captain America: Civil War was another film where you saw heroes divided and in camps and battle lines being drawn—it really felt like the future of the MCU was going to be defined by the action of that film. We really liked the idea of making this Ant-Man film as important and integral to the MCU going forward."

Charlie Cox: “If the ‘Daredevil’ reboot doesn’t hit the spot, then that might be it”
Daredevil: Born Again star Charlie Cox has warned fans that the upcoming Disney+ series may not be rated TV-MA, despite reports suggesting otherwise.
Speaking with NME, Cox admitted that he agreed with fans who believe The Man Without Fear "works best when he’s geared towards a slightly more mature audience," going on to state that his "instinct is that on Disney+ it will be dark but it probably won’t be as gory." Cox is aware that some Marvel fans may be disappointed to hear that the tone of Born Again won't be exactly the same as the Netflix series, but that he is excited to try something new with the character. "I would say to those people, we’ve done that," he said. "Let’s take the things that really worked, but can we broaden? Can we appeal to a slightly younger audience without losing what we’ve learned about what works?"
Ummmm No. Just No. Go home Finn. You’re Drunk.

Iron Fist Star Wants to Return as Danny Rand and ‘Prove Everyone Wrong
Finn Jones, who starred on the Netflix Marvel series Iron Fist, wants another chance at playing the character.
During an interview on Geekscape, the topic of Charlie Cox reprising his role as Matt Murdock from Daredevil was brought up and Jones was asked if he'd also want to return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Iron Fist. "I'd love another chance," he said. "I care about Danny Rand deeply, I believe in that character, I think there's a lot of work to be done. There's something about the underdog, y'know? I love the underdog narrative. I love the ability to prove someone wrong, and I want to prove all those motherfuckers wrong. I know I have it in me and I know I can give the Danny Rand performance that fans want and that is possible."

Charlie Cox puts strong case forward for She-Hulk’s Tatiana Maslany to return in new Daredevil series – and has high hopes for more Marvel crossovers
Ahead of the release of his upcoming series, Daredevil: Born Again, Charlie Cox hopes to see more MCU crossovers following the Daredevil franchise's shift from Netflix to Disney+.

Speaking with Metro, Cox revealed his desire for more Marvel crossovers, saying the move to Disney+ potentially opens up more opportunities for characters from different MCU shows to interact. Though he hasn't heard anything concrete yet, Cox remains optimistic that superheroes from various films and shows will cross paths in future MCU series. "I don't know anything. I haven't read anything from any scripts," Cox said. "So I don't know. I have no idea. But the only thing that's fun going forward for the Daredevil show is that of course when we were on Netflix, we didn't have the opportunity to really have the crossovers other than the characters that we knew we had in that Netflix Marvel world."
