She Hulk and Moon Knight title cards

When then Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige came to the D23 Expo to announce that She-Hulk, Moon Knight, and Ms. Marvel would be three new TV series joining the Disney+ lineup, fans got excited. However, the three new shows were still in very early development without a cast or creative crew.

But now She-Hulk and Moon Knight have found writers to begin working on the projects. According to a new report, Rick and Morty writer Jessica Gao will be working on the former, while The Umbrella Academy‘s Jeremy Slater will work on the latter. More on both of these stories, below.

Kevin Feige Comic-Con #4

This is just a conversation that will not end. Ever since Martin Scorsese claimed that superhero films aren’t cinema, everyone has shared their opinions on the matter. Scorsese even doubled down at one point in time, while Francis Ford Coppola echoed his sentiments.

However, there are those who have defended superhero films, like James Gunn, Kevin Smith, and Jon Favreau. Even Disney CEO Bob Iger spoke out against Scorsese’s comments. But one person we had yet to hear from is Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer, Kevin Feige. The man who has been a part of the studio since the very beginning is finally sharing his thoughts about Scorsese’s opinions on Marvel films. Naturally, he disagreed and thinks that it is “unfortunate” that Scorsese, who has been behind films like Goodfellas, Casino, and The Irishman, feels that way about their films.

Director Peyton Reed and star Paul Rudd on the set of Marvel Studios' Ant-Man

There are few Marvel Cinematic Universe film franchises that don’t have a trilogy. Spider-Man nearly didn’t get one, and we all know why, but thankfully that was avoided. One Marvel title that hasn’t gotten three standalone films yet is the one that is often overlooked: Ant-Man.

That all changed this past weekend as Peyton Reed, who directed Ant-Man (2015) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2017), signed on to direct the third installment of the film franchise for Marvel Studios. More on the report below.

Jon Favreau

These past few weeks have seen some of the greatest directors of the century criticizing Marvel movies and superhero films as a whole for not being real cinema. And then there are those like James Gunn and Kevin Smith, who defend Marvel by saying that they are cinema. So as the two sides plead their cases, the director who helped launch the Marvel Cinematic Universe is sharing his thoughts.

Jon Favreau, who directed Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and appeared in Iron Man 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home, took some time off during The Mandalorian press circuit to talk about the comments made by Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, and gave a rather composed response to their criticism of Marvel Studios films. More on what he said, below.

Francis Ford Coppola

Everyone has an opinion on something, but some people’s opinions get more attention than others. Case in point, director Martin Scorsese‘s dislike of Marvel Studios’ films and of superhero films in general. The Oscar-winner went so far as to liken them to theme parks, even though he admittedly has never sat through a full Marvel movie, and claimed that they are “not cinema.

The backlash on social media to the Taxi Driver director’s comments has been great. However, another acclaimed director just proclaimed his disdain towards Marvel Studios’ films as well. Francis Ford Coppola, whose credits include Apocalypse Now, The Godfather, The Outsiders, and many more, defended Scorsese’s comments, saying that Marvel Studios films are “despicable.” More on the report below.

Marvel Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Title Card

Of the many exciting new titles that will be arriving in the next few years from Marvel Studios, the one that I am looking forward to the most is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The film sees Simu Liu (Kim’s Convenience) as the title character who will fight the Ten Rings – the mysterious terrorist organization who kidnapped Tony Stark in the first Iron Man, had its name used in a sham in Iron Man 3, and partially revealed itself in the Iron Man one-shot “All Hail the King.”

While it is way too early to reveal too many details, director Destin Daniel Cretton is talking more about the film, what it represents, and hiring Bill Pope as the film’s cinematographer. More on all of this below.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Though it started to look like Spider-Man would be going back to Sony after their partnership with Disney came to a crashing end, a surprising deal was able to save the webslinger from the corporate snap that would have dusted the character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Though both parties agreed on new terms, it was who brought them together that made it all happen. According to new reports, it was Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland‘s last-minute heroics that were able to save Spidey from being lost to the MCU. More on the report below.

Spider-Man Far From Home

Oh how things can quickly change. Back in August, just days before the D23 Expo was supposed to start, Sony had announced that Spider-Man would no longer be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, citing Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige’s growing responsibilities at Disney+. The move was shocking to say the least and was met with an uproar from fans who believed that Sony needed Feige’s help.

Now it looks like Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man will websling in the MCU once again thanks to a last-minute deal that was signed between Disney and Sony. More on the report here below.
