^^Deadpool is, as he ever was, a wild card in all of this. As for Quicksilver, they could just...not bring him back. The comics constantly flip-flop on whether Wanda & Pietro even ARE mutants, so the MCU continuity can just say they're not & leave him dead.

^That's a good point. The hatred of powered people on SHIELD/Inhumans, though, is based on public misconceptions that Inhumans are either an invading army or infected by an alien disease. And on Netflix, it seems to be only a fringe minority who think that all powered people somehow caused the invasion of New York.

It might be wise to tone things down a little, though. The three-movies-a-year thing is only flying right now because the public (a) has been invested in this story arc for a long time already & (b) understands at least subconsciously that it was done to get the arc finished before certain actors (RDJ, SLJ, Ruffalo) got too old to keep doing action roles. But after this, they're still expecting to post 3 movies a year at least through 2022. Well, what if some of those aren't MCU films? Some could be X-Films instead. (And we don't need an X-Men installment every year, really.)

Also worth noting: This completed merger loosens up restrictions on Runaways; Molly can now openly be called a mutant, & Xavin (who is a Super-Skrull) can show up once they reach that point in the plot.

BTW, the season finale of Cloak & Dagger is this Thursday evening on Freeform (then on Hulu the next morning, which is how I've been watching it). After that, the next concrete release date is Iron Fist S2 on 9/7. And after THAT, the next concrete release date (so far) is Captain Marvel next March.

Been a while since any news, but we just got a premiere window for Agents of SHIELD S6: July 2019, so likely right after Far From Home opens.

Edit to add: I missed this the other day, but Runaways S2 comes out on December 21st.

Someone should make a movie out of that 'X-Men vs. Fantastic Four' comic.

I mean, they're never going to make a good 'Fantastic Four' movie, and they're never gonna make use of any of them third-stringer eighties X-Men no one but me likes. (Or is Marvel secretly banking on a huge 'Dazzler, Longshot, Psylocke, Havoc, Shadowcat and Magneto the good guy' movie? Because they probably shouldn't be.) Nah. So scrape these leavings up together and do something good with 'em for once, why not.

Iron Fist S2 was actually pretty good. The new crew put a lot of effort into fixing S1's problems organically, & Danny doesn't suck anymore (though Ward & Colleen are still way better characters). Typhoid Mary was an excellent addition, & I never thought they'd actually go through with

making Colleen the new Iron Fist.


Oh, by the way, the first Captain Marvel trailer debuted on GMA this morning. In case anyone cares about that. ;)

(Here's a poster, too.)

Variety is reporting (without a source, & without comment from Disney/Marvel) that Marvel Studios--meaning the film division, not the TV division which is still part of Marvel Entertainment--is planning to make a batch of miniseries for the new Disney Streaming Service to further develop supporting film characters like Loki & Scarlet Witch.

A different part of the rumor mill says that Disney will use the reorganization period of the Fox merger to move Marvel TV over to Marvel Studios' control anyway.

In more substantiated but less interesting news, The Eternals has a director.

We also now have a release date trailer for Daredevil S3: October 19th.

NYCC 2018 has come & gone. Marvel talked a lot about their comics & animation (Vayntrub was present for the Marvel Rising cartoon panel, but said nothing about New Warriors), but basically said jack about the MCU, other than dropping this full trailer for Daredevil S3 at a panel for the show, confirming Bullseye as if we didn't all know that already. (This Fisk teaser is cool too, though.)

A few weeks back, however, Mike Colter went on the record about plans for Luke Cage S3, so even though nothing's been confirmed by Netflix yet, we know that Marvel TV has gears in motion there.

Surprise announcement yesterday: Despite a massive boost in both critical reception & viewership in its 2nd season, Iron Fist has been cancelled by Netflix.

....BUT: The exact same day, Netflix's official Iron Fist Twitter account posted a teaser of the story continuing, implying that the show is just being rebranded into something else. Perhaps a story about the Immortal Weapons in general, perhaps a Daughters Of The Dragon spinoff, perhaps a Heroes For Hire spinoff....we'll see. [The linked article also suggests Moon Knight or Blade, but the nature of Marvel's expiring deal with Netflix means that those shows could only happen if those characters popped up on an existing show first (Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, or Punisher) & got spun-off.]

Side note: The Defenders was unofficially cancelled a few weeks back when all of its social media pages were rebranded to NX, the umbrella label Netflix is using for its sci-fi/fantasy productions. Very few people were expecting a 2nd season of Defenders anyway, since it had always been advertised as a one-time event & even Marvel themselves were on record as not having any plans to that end.
