With Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff set to return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it’s been thought that Paul Bettany’s Vision could possibly appear as well. During an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert this week, Bettany was asked straight up by Colbert if he is in the upcoming Marvel Studios film.
Bettany: “This is a really great question. And, again, I said I was going to be entirely honest with you. You’re asking if… ‘Am I in Doctor Strange?’… Yes, no, yes, no, yes, no. I don’t know. Am I? What do you think?… I can neither confirm nor deny rumors that I am in said and aforementioned Doctor Strange.”
After rounding out its cast over the last couple of months, Marvel Studios’ Ironheart series found its directors this week. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sam Bailey and Angela Barnes have been tapped to helm the Disney+ series.
The other piece of news The Hollywood Reporter revealed is that Black Panther director Ryan Coogler will serve as Executive Producer on the series. In addition, his production company, Proximity, will handle the show’s production. News of Coogler’s involvement was actually spoiled a couple of weeks ago by one of the show’s cast members Anthony Ramos.
Over the years, there have been several merchandise leaks for upcoming Marvel Studios films that give us our first look at new characters. Because it’s usually a lower resolution camera phone shot, it’s never the way you first want to see any important new characters. But when you have fans as crazy as MCU ones are, these things happen. Well, another leak has indeed occurred, and this time it’s for Thor: Love and Thunder.
This week, snapshots of the film’s collectible Marvel Legends action figures surfaced online. While there were seven total figures shown, Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher is the one that everyone is talking about.
