    Florence Pugh talks Black Widow: “This film is about the abuse of women. It’s so painful, and it’s so important”

    New release dates for the MCU:

    Black Widow – May 7th 2021

    Shang Chi – July 9th 2021

    Eternals – Nov 5th 2021

    2020 will be the first year without a MCU movie since 2009. Here’s hoping WandaVision is released in December, as rumoured.

    Honestly, I miss the trailers as much as the movies themselves. The hype is all part of the fun, and I can’t wait to see what Eternals looks like.

    Newcomer Iman Vellani has been chosen to play Ms. Marvel a.k.a. Pakistani American Kamala Khan, Variety has confirmed with a source close to the project.

    The character she will play is a 16-year-old Muslim teenager who lives in Jersey City, New Jersey, and looks up to superheroes like Captain Marvel. According to Marvel, she has an “an Inhuman ability to alter shape and size [and] employs an idealistic attitude as much as any power to make the world a better place.”

    Dr. Strange will be in Spider-Man 3

    Seems to pretty much confirm the multiverse speculation, except that this movie will be out before Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

    It feels odd for them to already be filming another Spidey, given that it was just the last MCU movie, but contractually they need to release it by the end of 2021, pandemic or not.

    I would guess their contract with Sony states it has to be released theatrically.

    Besides, Disney are understandably reluctant to release any Marvel movies on Disney+, presumably because there’s no way they’ll ever recoup the $150 million-plus per movie production budget that way. They’ve even thrown audiences another bone in the shape of Pixar’s latest, “Soul”, which will be released digitally at Christmas, rather than release Black Widow, which has been in the can for a while now.

    So, Peter’s life gets too manic now that everyone knows his secret identity and he turns to magic to try and make everyone forget about it. Dr Strange refuses to meddle in such matters but some Mephisto-ish person (such as, say, Mephisto) gives him what he wants but, unbeknownst to Peter, he takes something precious to Peter in exchange. Things go from bad to worse, we enter the darkest timeline from Community territory, Evil Abed has to be defeated, Dr Strange helps Peter sort it out and return home to his real universe… but the multiverse has been untangled by this and Dr Strange has to deal with that in his movie.

    Something like that.

    Back before Julian McMahon took over the role, Nicholas Cage had been cast as DOCTOR DOOM for 2005’s FANTASTIC 4. The production team decided to approach Cage after a concept artist used the likeness of singer Marilyn Manson for some of their pieces. At the time, the project was considerably darker & Doom’s look was definitely walking a line between PG13 & R (as seen in these production maquette’s of his skinless, bio-metal arms). This obviously never panned out but it’s interesting nonetheless. #NicholasCage #Fantastic4 #FantasticFour

  • #40997

    Dude is in his late fifties, it’s a bit late to play this kind of role. I mean, 2004 Troy Brad Pitt, he’d be perfect for Hyperion, but at this point he’d need to play an old, world-weary superhero type. Old Hyperion is of course a perfectly valid option, what with alternative realities and all that. They could also go for a villain version, but Far from Home kind of did that story already.

    What do people around here think? Should BP be recast? Personally, I don’t care. If they go with Shuri, I would approve. If they recast, I would approve. As long as the recast is a good actor, I don’t much mind.

    1 user thanked author for this post.
  • #41048

    I’d also be fine if the franchise shifted it’s focus to Shuri or something like that, but I tend to doubt that Boseman would have wanted T’Challa to die with him. It’s a tough situation for any actor filling his shoes to be in, for sure, and probably not an easy decision for Disney to make on how to proceed.

    Well the most important thing is that they should just address the elephant in the room straight away, not at the end of the movie… Other than that, I don’t think it’s much of an issue to be honest, either recast or use Shuri-Panther… Personally I’d go with recasting T’Challa, but they better find a good and very charismatic actor who can pull off not only playing the character, but also win people over. I’m sure there’s plenty of actors who fit the bill.

  • #41097

    My feeling is that the role will be recast. It seems as though, bizarrely and perhaps even a little selfishly, Chadwick Boseman hadn’t let on to Ryan Coogler or anyone else just how ill he was, so the script for BP2 is pretty much written with him still in the role. Given how far ahead Marvel Studios plan these things, it will probably also affect quite a few other movies they have in the pipeline as well, so I guess it’s a question of how easy it is for them to retool things.

  • #41098

    Yeah I can’t imagine Disney were happy about Boseman not telling them about his illness… I think that’s gonna be a new requirement for actors going forward… =/

  • #41104

    Seems to me to be a major oversight in Disney’s due diligence if they didn’t know.

    I assume the studio insures their actors against illness or injury.

    I assume you can’t get insurance without declaring pre-existing medical conditions.

    Maybe this doesn’t happen, but it just seems common sense that it should when there is literally a billion dollars at stake :unsure:

  • #41129

    I’d also be fine if the franchise shifted it’s focus to Shuri

    I would go for that. As much as I think Boseman did a great job I’m not sure T’Challa is the most enthralling character in the MCU and every scene Shuri was on screen was pretty dynamite. It’s just me but I liked them better, stoic can be pretty boring as a main character trait.

    Yeah, but I imagine that like with everything else, those kinds of things don’t work quite the same for regular folks and actors. I don’t see Disney signing a multi-movie deal with him if they were aware… although, on the other hand, he did have 3 appearances… so who knows… :unsure:

  • #41159

    I used to actually want Aldis Hodge to play T’Challa. Unfortunately, he’s now playing Hawkman.

    Someone on the Hudlin Entertainment Forums suggested John Kani’s son Atandwa, who played young T’Chaka in BP.

    I love Shuri, but I couldn’t really see her as the Black Panther. Maybe they could seperate the Throne and the Panther roles, have Nakia or Okoye do the heavy lifting in the action.

    Okoye was always my preference. I think keeping Shuri in her “Q” role and having her rebelliousness spark with Okoye’s devotion to duty would be great fun.

  • #41178

    On the other hand, they’ll need one more Tony Stark once the deal with Sony ends… so Shuri as BP is probably a good idea in that regard since, yeah, she’s yet another Tony Stark. Man… Marvel ain’t being super original with their movies huh? =/

  • #41179

    I guess that’s the downside of finding a winning formula. The unwillingness to stray too far from that.

    I do wonder whether the longer-than-expected break between the end of Phase 3 MCU movies (with Endgame and Far From Home) and the next one (Black Widow most likely, or possibly Spidey 3 depending on how the release dates end up) is going to sap the momentum of the MCU slightly.

    Endgame put such a big cap on everything that there aren’t as many obvious dangling threads as there once were, and I wonder whether a long break will make people hungrier for the next MCU movie or whether it will break the cycle and dampen enthusiasm for the MCU, make it feel a bit like something from the past.

  • #41182

    I think keeping the momentum going is incredibly important. I’ve lost count of the number of comic series I’ve lost interest in just because they couldn’t keep to a regular schedule. So yeah, I think this extended break will be quite damaging. And maybe it’s just me, but I have far less enthusiasm for a Black Widow movie than I do for a lot of other MCU stuff – particularly since she’s dead!

    The one I’m most curious about is Eternals – I think if they’re willing to go full Kirby-cosmic it could be great fun.

    While we wait for those, I’m hoping WandaVision will drop in December, as rumoured.
