Posted on May 16, 2021 / by AliKat in Casting Rumor, Marvel, Midnight Sons

This may be just a rumor

That Hashtag Show: Earlier this week we talked about how Ghost Rider would be coming to the MCU. Now, we’re talking about Marvel’s next big team-up film, Midnight Sons.

Marvel has over 20 unannounced films, but with those is a heavy emphasis on branching out with their team-up movies. They want to replicate the success of The Avengers with multiple team-up films. Young Avengers, Dark Avengers/Thunderbolts, etc. Although this week we can exclusively share that Marvel is working on a Midnight Sons movie, which is currently in early development.

THE MIDNIGHT SONS? WHO’S THAT?

Midnight Sons is a group within Marvel Comics that consists of Supernatural heroes that fight Supernatural threats. Marvel Studios is wanting to build Midnight Sons to be the ‘Supernatural Avengers’ more or less.

While there have been previous reports regarding Midnight Sons being adapted, these were inaccurate at the time, as Marvel did not have the characters they wanted in place for such a film. However, with Blade and Moon Knight coming to the MCU and the Doctor Strange sequel bringing a lot of characters into the MCU; it’s now a big priority for Marvel and a realistic one at that.

The roster will start off small and grow in future films as with any team-up film. It will start with Doctor Strange, Moon Knight, Blade, Hannibal King, Hellstrom, Ghost Rider, and Scarlet Witch. Hannibal King and Hellstrom will be introduced in Blade and fleshed out further in Midnight Sons. While Ghost Rider will be utilized in Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness before continuing on in Midnight Sons. Moon Knight and Blade both have a series and movie coming soon.

While plot details are scarce as this is still in early development, we can exclusively share that Blackout will be the primary villain; with teases of Mephisto throughout. From what I’m hearing, Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios are interested in having multiple Thanos-level threats within the MCU.

Only time will tell what larger impact Midnight Sons has on the MCU. Though, with many of its members being fun Supernatural heroes, expect to see a lot more of the Supernatural in the MCU moving forward.

Posted on May 13, 2021 / by AliKat in Audio, Interviews, Marvel, Press, WandaVision

The WandaVision cast and creative team are the first guests on the new season of The Awardist podcast, where EW’s Kristen Baldwin and Gerrad Hall kick things off with a look at the Limited Series race.

 

EW: The history books are closed on this year’s Oscars, so Hollywood — and EW with it — is opening a new one focused on this September’s Emmys.

That means a new season of EW’s The Awardist podcast is now underway, kicking off with the cast and creative team behind the blockbuster equivalent of a TV series: WandaVision. The first Marvel television show on Disney+, which debuted in January, is one of the many limited series in contention this year, and we’re breaking down that category as well as lead actor and actress in a limited series/TV movie. In addition to WandaVision’s Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, stars including Hugh Grant (The Undoing), Kate Winslet (Mare of Easttown), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit), Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), and Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You) are among those vying for a nomination come July 13.

In the case of WandaVision, traditional superhero fare is turned on its head with a story that focused on Wanda’s (Olsen) grief following the death of her beloved Vision (Bettany). But here, she uses her immense powers to manufacture a town and home where Vision is actually alive, and they’re living an idyllic life via the world of comfort-TV shows like those she grew up watching as a child in Sokovia. Add to it Teyonah Parris as S.W.O.R.D. agent Monica Rambeau, and Kathryn Hahn, who plays nosy neighbor Agnes/powerful witch Agatha Harkness, and the stakes are raised by people who are trying to stop Wanda — for reasons both good and bad.

The four actors, along with series head writer/EP Jac Schaeffer and director/EP Matt Shakman, joined The Awardist podcast, where they talked about audience reaction, fan theories, and memes, tackling grief in a profound but entertaining way, and watching Hahn top the iTunes chart with “Agatha All Along” (and besting Justin Bieber in the process). They also reveal their favorites moments from the nine episodes — some of which may surprise you.

You can listen to the full episode of The Awardist below.

Edit: Added the video –

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explains why a planned Dr. Strange appearance would’ve “taken away from Wanda”

ROLLING STONE: The story of WandaVision‘s main character, Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. the Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen), is set to continue in 2022’s Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, but the two projects were almost linked much more directly. As Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige reveals in Rolling Stone‘s upcoming, extensive oral history of WandaVision, Marvel struck a deal with Benedict Cumberbatch to appear in the final episode of the show as Dr. Strange. But late in the process, they wrote him out.

“Some people might say, ‘Oh, it would’ve been so cool to see Dr. Strange,’” says Feige. “But it would have taken away from Wanda, which is what we didn’t want to do. We didn’t want the end of the show to be commoditized to go to the next movie — here’s the white guy, ‘Let me show you how power works.’” That meant the Dr. Strange movie, too, had to be rewritten. In the end, Feige says, Marvel’s process is “a wonderful combination of very dedicated coordination, and chaos. Chaos magic.” At one point, back when Dr. Strange was supposed to be part of the story, the in-universe commercials were going to be messages from Strange to Wanda, and there was also talk of having Cumberbatch appear in one of the ads, head writer Jac Schaeffer says.

Meanwhile, Elizabeth Olsen is pushing back on criticism that Wanda got off too easy by flying away without punishment after she forced an entire town of people into her sitcom fantasy world. “She had to get away before the people who have to hold her accountable got there,” she says. “And where she went is a place that no one could find her. Because she knows that she is going to be held accountable, and I think she has a tremendous amount of guilt.”

Our oral history, which tells the entire story behind the making of one of the year’s best TV shows, will also include interviews with Paul Bettany, Kathryn Hahn, Teyonnah Parris, Randall Park, Kat Dennings, and many more.
