On Monday, Marvel Studios finally released the Eternals trailer.
The two-minute plus video didn’t exactly reveal much (no sign of Deviants or Celestials) but it did give us some stunning shots of Marvel’s next big team to hit the big screen. The most notable thing I noticed wasn’t a video shot but a voice-over line that was said by Salma Hayek’s Ajak. In it, she said, “throughout the years we have never interfered, until now.” This is important because a question MCU fans have been asking is “where were the Eternals when Thanos wiped out half the universe?”
In February, it was announced that Black Panther director Ryan Coogler would develop a series based on Wakanda for Disney+. Now thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we might have some more details about the series.
In a profile piece about lawyer Jamie Mandelbaum, the outlet revealed that he negotiated a deal for actress Danai Gurira (who plays Okoye) to reprise her role not only in the sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but her own “origin spinoff series for Disney+”.
On Friday, the same person who first reported that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield would appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, made another big reveal. Jeff Sneider of Collider reported on his Sneider Cut podcast that the film will include the Sinister Six, which will be filled with villains from previous Spider-Man franchises.
According to Sneider, the team will include Norman Osborn/Green Goblin (Spider-Man’s Willem Dafoe), Electro (Amazing Spider-Man 2’s Jamie Foxx), Doctor Octopus (Spider-Man 2’s Alfred Molina), Rhino (Amazing Spider-Man 2’s Paul Giamatti), Lizard (Amazing Spider-Man’s Rhys Ifans), and Sandman (Spider-Man 3’s Thomas Hayden Church).
Shooter McGavin is coming to the MCU! On Wednesday Deadline reported that actor Christopher McDonald had joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series Secret Invasion.
While the outlet wouldn’t reveal who he’s playing, they did say that it is “a newly created character that could cross over to the larger MCU, including appearing in movies and other Disney+ limited series.”
Despite the fact that everyone in the world has known since last October, for the very first time on Thursday, Marvel Studios confirmed that Oscar Isaac will play Marc Spector (aka Moon Knight) in an upcoming Disney+ series.
Isaac and the studio made the announcement on social media.
