I know that I have a broken brain and probably seem like a crazy person for saying this but saying "Sony meddling is how you get Spider-Man 3 and Venom" makes me MORE interested honestly. I'm not going to say that either of those movies are GOOD but they're interesting as hell. If you asked me I'd definitely say I preferred all the MCU movies of the past few years over Venom but in hindsight I've probably thought about Venom more than any of them except maybe Black Panther and Ragnarok. It's this weird mishmash of a comic book movie with a wildly varying tone where it's impossible to tell if the movie is in on the joke at all. they sincerely tried to make a circa-2003 comic book movie in 2018 It's baffling and I low key love it (just as I HIGH KEY love Spidey 3).

When I saw Far From Home, I knew that at worst I was gonna get a pretty good MCU movie. The new Sony movies, depending on the artistic choices they make and how much input the studio decides to put in, could be f***ing ANYWHERE from a masterpiece to an abject disaster.

But then again, I'm a massive weirdo and the average filmgoer is far less fascinated by trainwrecks as I am.

^ I kind of feel that. Whatever we get from Sony is going to be more interesting to me than another MCU film. (I'm so jaded by the MCU at this point.) Now, with all fairness, it certainly sounds like there is a good chance it will be *worse*; but it will definitely be more interesting.

in not-Spider-Man related news, D23 happened and some more Disney+ shows were revealed: Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, and She-Hulk

also U.S. Agent is going to be in Falcon & Winter Soldier, played by Wyatt Russell
also also Darcy and Jimmy Woo are going to be in WandaVision, for some reason

Indeed. More D23 D-tails:

--First trailer for the last season of Agents of SHIELD. (Apparently they also showed the season premiere, but I'd rather wait until it airs next summer.)
--What If? will be 23 episodes long, one for each of the films in phases 1-3. Here's some art from episode 1, in which Peggy Carter becomes Captain Britain. Another episode will involve Bucky fighting zombies; I'm not sure what movie that would be based on.
--Ms. Marvel title card. Feige confirms that Kamala will eventually appear in films too. (This show being the first one of 2022 kinda soft-confirms Captain Marvel 2 appearing early that year as well, since most folks on Earth still don't know who Carol Danvers is yet, so we need a chance to establish how Kamala becomes such a fangirl.)
--She-Hulk title card.
--Moon Knight title card.
--Marvel Studios' Disney+ release sequence, suggesting that "phase 4" will extend through 2022 (& thus encompass those 3 movies as well).
--Joining the Falcon & Winter Soldier cast is Wyatt Russell as US Agent.
--Joining Darcy & Woo in WandaVision will be Kathryn Hahn as Gosh-I-Hope-Not-The-Usual-Obnoxious-Kathryn-Hahn-Character.
--The Loki logo morphs.
--Jeff Goldblum just found out about the Spidey drama.

Today was all about television. Tomorrow will be about movies.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

Today was about movies alright, but after SDCC, very little of it was about Marvel movies in particular. Here's what we got:

--Eternals: Gemma Chan as Sersi. Kit Harrington as Black Knight. Concept art of the cast's costumes. Filming began last month.
--Black Panther II: 6 May 2022. (This is further bolstering my hypothesis that Capt. Marvel 2 is gonna end up in the early 2022 slot.)

That's it for now. Next batch of news (other than a new Spider-Man deal) will likely be NYCC in 6 weeks.

I forgot to mention: D23 had a SHIELD panel where they showed the season 7 premiere, which again probably won't air until next May. So that was a thing.
Speaking of things, we probably won't get anymore big news until NYCC in a few weeks.

Oh, except that even after all these months, the New Warriors cast is still ready, willing, able, & bound by their NDAs not to say more than that.
Oh, and also Hailee Steinfeld is being targeted for a lead in Hawkeye. No character is confirmed, but it's totally Kate Bishop.
Oh, & that content drought that we're in until Runaways S3 in December? Actually, it's only until the Far From Home blu-ray comes out on 3 Oct, because that will contain the short "Peter's To-Do List", the first canon one-shot in the MCU since "All Hail the King" came out back in early 2014.

Finally some good news: Spidey's back. :)
Disney & Sony have come to an agreement for a 3rd MCU Spider film produced by Marvel Studios for distribution by Sony (like the others), this time with Disney getting 25% of the take, up from their previous 5%. The movie will release on 16 July 2021 (aka "that weird gap in the Phase 4 schedule"). The deal also allows for Peter Parker to appear in at least one more Marvel-controlled MCU film as well (I will put down money that it's either Avengers 5 or Deadpool 3).

And in "huh" news: Feige is gonna make a Star Wars movie too. Sources indicated the plot outline may have already been leaked at a public panel in Indiana.

NYCC is next weekend. I am really hoping for a Cloak & Dagger renewal at the Runaways panel.

It's NYCC, & Friday night was Runaways night. They showed the entire season premiere at the panel, but the rest of the world got this trailer...

...& this other clip...

...& this ET interview...& the panel itself.


Also, Far From Home is now on disc, which means "Peter's To-Do List" is now available. It's not to be confused with this:

Some TV news happened:
--Cloak & Dagger has been cancelled by Freeform, & I am not pleased.
--There are also rumors of Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb retiring or resigning soon.
--Meanwhile, Kevin Feige has been made Chief Creative Officer of all of Marvel, including film, TV, & even comics; this appointment also includes reassigning Marvel TV as a subsidiary of Marvel Studios instead of being under the separate-since-2016 Marvel Entertainment division that publishes the comics.
--While all that is going on, Helstrom has begun filming its full-season order for Hulu, & is expected to be in production until the end of February.

Upcoming release schedule:
--Runaways S3 in 2 months (this may be our last chance to see Cloak & Dagger)
--Black Widow in 7 months

Peyton Reed will be the 3rd director (following Jon Watts & James Gunn) to complete an MCU trilogy, as Ant-Man 3 is greenlit with Reed confirmed to direct.

We also have word that the Inhuman royal family is being recast for Ms. Marvel, which would imply that the Inhumans series is about to be excised from canon. (No loss there; it was terrible, & nothing else ever referenced it, so nothing else will need to be retconned.)

Less than a month until Runaways S3; here's a poster:
Image

Plus, Marvel Studios has set 5 new "untitled" release dates, a 4th date in 2022 & 4 more for 2023. (Remember that they also currently still have 2 other "untitled" 2022 dates already, on either side of Black Panther 2 in May.)
--Let's talk practicality for a sec. I know Feige is excited about all his new toys, but one of the MCU's strengths has always been that it's much more accessible than the comics, in part because there isn't an overwhelming flood of content (at least not all at once). In 2021 & 2022, though, we're now expecting 8 films (Shang-Chi, Multiverse, Spidey 3, Love & Thunder, Panther 2, three TBAs) and 6 weekly miniseries (WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, Ms. Marvel, Moon Knight, She-Hulk), plus What If (though that's not canon), plus anything yet-unannounced that Marvel TV produces for the franchise in that time frame. As they say on The Price Is Right, "That's too much, Bob Drew Kevin!" And all the "untitled" dates are Disney releases only, so Sony might still decide to put out Spidey 4 in 2023, making 5 films that year. That's WAY too much, Kevin. Slooowwwwww iiiiiiiiiiitttttt dooooooowwwwwnnnnnn.
--Let's talk potential for a sec. That new October date has gotta be Blade; a vampire film for Halloween is too perfect. The other confirmed-but-not-yet-scheduled projects which perfectly fit these other 6 open slots (not counting Spidey 4, see above) are as follows: Guardians 3, Ant-Man 3, Captain Marvel 2, Fantastic Four, X-Men,...& Deadpool 3. So here's what I'm thinking....
2022: CM 2, BP 2, AM 3, Blade
2023: DP 3, GotG 3, FF, XM

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I assume Blade is going to be a reboot. Hopefully it's as dark as the original but I don't think it will be, unless they take a note from DC.

Real talk how long until we get to the "everything's getting too convoluted and self-referential with everything tying into each other so here's a massive event that wipes the slate clean" mega event just like in real comics
