Gorr has arrived! This week, the Daily Mail gave us our very first look at Christian Bale suited up on set as the god killing villain Gorr The God Butcher. The photos were taken in Malibu, California this week where the Oscar winning actor was doing additional filming for Thor: Love and Thunder.
Last week, MCU fans found it strange that Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series Hawkeye received a release date (November 24th) before Ms. Marvel did. It had been long thought that it would premiere before the Jeremy Renner-led series. Now thanks to a report by TVLine, we may have just found out why it was announced first.
According to the outlet, Ms. Marvel has been delayed and will now hit the streaming service in early 2022.
“I asked around and it is very safe to assume at this point that Ms. Marvel is now on track for an early 2022 premiere.”
Earlier this week, the embargo for critics who were able to watch the first three episodes of Marvel Studios’ first animated series What If…? was lifted. To no one’s surprise, it seems that they all loved it.
Described by one person as the “MCU’s Twilight Zone”, the anthology series was praised for being “exciting”, “fun”, and full of “twists and turns”. One of the episodes that critics were able to watch was the one where T’Challa becomes Star-Lord. This was of course emotional to watch because it’s the final performance for Chadwick Boseman in the role.
With his new movie Free Guy coming out next week, director Shawn Levy has been making the interview rounds to promote it. Starring Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds, the film has gotten off to a strong start with positive reviews.
During one particular interview with Inverse, the Night at the Museum and Stranger Things director was asked about rumors of reteaming with Reynolds to helm Deadpool 3.
“I’m going to mostly skirt that question, which might be an answer,” he said. “I’ll answer the last part of it, which is: I’m a fan. I’m a fan of Deadpool, like a massive fan. And I’m a fan of the Marvel Universe and the way in which increasingly, individual filmmakers of real note can make and express with their own voice and vision through that franchise behemoth, whether it’s what Taika did with Ragnarok, what Eternals is going to be, what James Gunn did with Guardians.”
“These are real films that also happen to be Marvel movies,” Levy continued. “So, for the right title – because I only raised my hand on stuff where I know what to do with that, and there’s a few where I feel I know what to do with that. So we’ll see.”
On Monday, Sony Pictures released the the second trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage. Unlike the first trailer, which was met with mixed reviews, this one contained a lot more action shots of Woody Harrelson’s Carnage.
