According to the outlet, the break-up didn’t have anything to do with “creative differences,” the most common reason these things happen. Instead, they say that Watts just wanted a break from the “superhero realm.” Since he’d been working on Spidey films nonstop since 2015, him wanting a break makes sense.
Yesterday, Disney announced that two of Marvel Studios’ films slated to drop in 2023 had switched release dates. The Marvels (originally slated for February 17) would now come out July 28 while Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,(originally slated for July 28) would now drop February 17.
According to Deadline, they heard that “both films are moving along very nicely, but Ant-Man is further along in the production process and it was a simple decision by the studio to swap the release dates.” What’s interesting is that both films began filming around the same time last summer. They also finished filming during the same exact week in November. Clearly one production went smoother than the other.
On Thursday, a TV spot for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness leaked online that revealed some pretty big spoilers. It seems that the spot was suppose to come out early next week, because at the beginning of it, a voice-over is heard saying “this Friday” (movie comes out next Friday).
Yesterday, Marvel Studios released a similar version of the spot online. In it, we learn that Captain Carter (played by Hayley Atwell) is in the film, after she’s seen facing off against Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff. We also get confirmation that the Captain Marvel variant that has appeared numerous times in the trailers is actually Maria Rambeau (played by Lashana Lynch). Toward the end of the video, we’re also shown a glimpse of Professor Xavier (played by Patrick Stewart) sitting in his iconic yellow hoverchair.
On Thursday, Marvel Studios released the very first clip for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. In the one-minute action-packed video that actually came from IMDb, we see Benedict Cumberbatch’s Strange taking on Gargantos in the streets of New York.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige says the next 10 years of MCU films are currently being mapped out
During Disney’s presentation at CinemaCon on Wednesday, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that the studio’s leadership is currently having their first creative retreat in three years. During their time away, the MCU architect said that they will decide the next decade of films for the franchise.
“I have just left this morning, and I’m going back as soon as I get off stage, to our first creative retreat in person with the Marvel Studios creative team in three years. And we have a giant board there that takes us through the next decade of MCU movies, and they are different and they are unique and special and are meant for your theaters.”
On Thursday, Deadline revealed that Marvel Studios’ upcoming Echo series added Devery Jacobs to its cast. According to the outlet, the 28-year-old actress is said to play someone named Julie, who is described as “resilient and strong-willed.” It’s also said to be a “lead” role for the Disney+ show.
Shortly after Deadline broke the news, Jacobs confirmed on her Twitter account that she had in fact joined the Hawkeye spinoff series.
