MarvelBlog News for January 31st, 2022

This week on your MarvelBlog News for January 31st, we speculate on Spider-Man 4, hear from Sam Raimi and Ethan Hawke, and discuss the new open-door policy in the MCU.

What’s the Spider-Plan?

Tom Holland performed an interview just before Spider-Man: No Way Home came out in theaters in mid-December.

During the conversation, Holland discussed his contract in general terms, stating:

“I don’t think it’s as black and white as, “I have a three-picture deal with Marvel and a three-picture deal with Sony.” It’s just this open conversation and open dialogue…”

The actor then referenced the heads of Sony and Disney, one of whom, Bob Iger, has since retired. His point was that he didn’t have a finite contract per se.

Instead, whenever Holland earns an opportunity to appear in an MCU movie, he liaises with both studios.

The unique politics of the situation might overwhelm even the most experienced actors.

Somehow, Holland is already a pro at this sort of thing at 25.

What he may not appreciate fully is that the nature of his job recently changed. He is now above the title star of the fourth-most successful movie ever.

As such, Sony must treat Tom Holland like its most valuable player. Well, I should say Holland and co-star Zendaya. The dating actors are currently kind of a package deal, though.

That’s another example of unique politics. Sony cannot risk angering any of the three parties, by which I mean Disney or either actor. The company simply has too much money at risk.

Understandably, Sony is plotting what comes next, the hotly anticipated sequel to No Way Home.

We’re in the early stages of development. After all, No Way Home is still in theaters as I type this.

Even so, several options have emerged as the basis of the next Spider-Man movie…and more.

The Options at Play

Obviously, the hot rumor for a while has remained in Sony’s back pocket. It would involve an introduction of Miles Morales to the MCU.

He’s already anchored a wildly popular animated movie, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Sony could bring him into Spider-Man 4 as the only person who knows who Peter Parker is.

Sure, that plot would take some explaining, but Sony just squeezed every Spider-Man character ever into the last film. I think they could work in Morales.

That’s the thing, though. When Sony emptied the rogue’s gallery in No Way Home, everyone desperately wanted a taste.

Sony could feasibly give the people what they want by doing more of the same. Apparently, that possibility is on the table, too.

Discussing this proves challenging without the use of spoilers. I have several friends who haven’t seen the movie who know this, but I’ll still err on the side of caution.

The Spoiler Section – DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN NO WAY HOME!

If you haven’t watched Spider-Man: No Way Home yet and don’t want to know about casting spoilers, please skip to the next section.

Are you still here? Okay, this is the final warning. In the following sentence, I’m about to spoil two massive surprises in the film.

Yes, the idea of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield returning to their roles is a distinct possibility.

In fact, the premise here would involve those two people being the only ones who remember Holland’s, Peter Parker.

Source: Marvel Studios

Presumably, Sony would tell this story as if the spell didn’t cross universes. Then, the two other Scientist Parkers would figure out what had happened.

Then, they would again cross the multiversal boundary, which is currently shaky anyway, and help Holland’s character.

Source: Marvel Studios

Sony has deduced that this concept would earn the most money. As such, it has at least considered the idea of placing other plots on the backburner for now.

We can always get Miles Morales later. That’s the thinking anyway. But, of course, it’s also possible that Sony will throw him into the mix as well.

Source: Sony Pictures/ Marvel Studios

Nothing is off the table for now. Sony’s sole goal is to protect and maximize the Spider-Man brand.

In fact, Zendaya may have an offer to star in a standalone MJ movie. Similarly, a Spider-Gwen film is all but certain over the next three years or so.

The only question is whether Emma Stone will return to the role. If not, it’ll be one of the hottest casting competitions in recent memory.

At this moment, the honest evaluation is that the Spider-Man license is the hottest it’s been for Sony since 2002. Speaking of which…

Marvel Movie News and Rumors

Sony is dominating all the industry gossip for the time being. However, we’re less than 100 days away from the debut of Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

The director of that film is Sam Raimi, who sparked the original Spider-Man frenzy in 2002.

Raimi will plant his flag in the MCU with the Dr. Strange sequel and recently performed an interview with Variety.

Oddly, Raimi isn’t sure whether the film counts as finished yet. He’s waiting on test audience scores to determine that.

The director is also understandably proud of No Way Home’s performance, as it’s the 20-year spiritual successor to his Spider-Man movie.

Raimi mentions Alfred Molina in particular. But, interestingly, that’s not the only potential crossover possibility in the MCU.

Recent reports suggest that Krysten Ritter WILL bring Jessica Jones into this Marvel realm! This is all I wanted or needed. So, I really want this rumor to be true!

Similarly, at least one source has indicated that The Runaways may return. So, at a minimum, Disney has more in store for Nico Minoru.

Finally, Variety has interviewed another MCU participant, Ethan Hawke. The conversation addresses the actor’s worries about joining Marvel.

His biggest concern involved a potential lack of depth in his character. But then, he realized he wasn’t playing an evil billionaire.

Source: Marvel Studios

Instead, Hawke has channeled a Waco cult leader and…Carl Jung. Yeah, I have no idea how that’s gonna work. It sounds fascinating, though, doesn’t it?

Also, while I have you here, please watch Hawke’s midnight trilogy. Before Sunrise is a wildly satisfying creative exercise.

Everything you need to know about Wolverine

Wolverine

Wolverine is a fictional character that appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, typically in conjunction with the X-Men. His real name is James Howlett, but he also goes by the aliases Logan and Weapon X.

How did Wolverine Became Popular?

Origin of Wolverine by Paul Jenkins Wolverine, the ol’ Canucklehead, has certainly evolved from the idea of a Canadian superhero to being the finest at what he does. Wolverine, a comic book character whose stern, aggressive demeanor established the bar It became quickly obvious that his initial yellow-and-blue clothing did not conjure up images of a furious the early 21st century…

James Howlett – Wolverine – Logan – Weapon X

Here is some facts about Wolverine

Habitat. These hardy creatures live alone and require a lot of space to wander.
Diet. Wolverines are stubborn, so while they occasionally consume vegetarian food like plants and berries in the summer, it does not constitute a significant portion of their diet.

What role does Wolverine play in X-Men Apocalypse?

Professor Charles Xavier invites Wolverine to join up for his new superhero-mutant team, called the X-Men, where Logan creates a close friendship with Cyclops and Jean Grey. Later it was discovered that Xavier, erased Logan’s memory and forced him to join the X-Men team by purpose. Professor X had to delete all Wolverine memories because he was sent to kill X-Men team leader a.k.a. – Charles Xavier.

Cyclops and Jean Grey

James Howlett (Wolverine) is also called Logan and Weapon X. He is a mutant with three retractable claws in each hand and animal-keen senses. He also has heightened physical powers, a strong regeneration ability known as a healing factor, and animal-keen senses.

Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine a.k.a. Logan

So Wolverine is from DC (Detective Comic) or MCU ( Marvel Cinematic Universe)?

Offten fans wonder is Wolverine a DC or a Marvel hero? Well, Wolverine was allegedly inspired by the DC superhero Timberwolf. Due to his ability to heal, the color of his outfit, and his hair, he is Wolverine’s polar opposite. The only thing that separates them is their claws, which are quite similar to each other despite Timberwolf’s sharp claws not being like Wolverine’s retractable ones. But, officially Wolverine was created for Marvel Comics by writer Len Wein and artist John Romita.

What is Wolverine’s history?

Did you know that Wolverine actually are father to Jimmy Hudson? James Hudson and Wolverine served together in the Iraq War, and James was given guardianship of Wolverine’s infant kid. To make the adoption legitimate, Jimmy’s surname name was changed from Howlett to Hudson. Jimmy’s origins were kept a mystery up until his senior year of high school. Wolverines son – Jimmy didn’t realize he was a mutant when he was a child, but he always felt unique and rejected the idea that he might be one.

In movies we saw that Hugh Jackman who played Logan in several movies, had to play very different scenario/story line whan it’s in comic books. For the first time Wolverine appeared in our TV screens in 2009. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) showed us remarcable MCU story line with new characters. At the movie we saw that Logan a.k.a. Wolverine was made in laboratory. But did you know that in comics, originally he got such powers from his birth parent.

Just to clarify, who is Wolverine?

Wolverine is a fictional character that appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, typically in conjunction with the X-Men. His real name is James Howlett, but he also goes by the aliases Logan and Weapon X.

Wolverine and Deadpool

Who is Deadpool in Wolverine?

One of the worse films in the Fox X-Men film series is frequently cited as X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And the portrayal of Wade Wilson, a.k.a. Deadpool, in the movie has drawn some of the most severe criticism. Fans were ecstatic to see The Merc With the Mouth on the big screen when it was released in 2009.

All information you need to know about Deadpool

If you’ve been on the Internet lately, you’ve definitely noticed some peculiar advertising for a superhero film starring Ryan Reynolds. Funny, but Ryan Reynol’d’ attractive face 90% of the movie time was hidden.

Why Deadpool always wear a mask? Why is the hip-hop music so strange and off-key? Why so much profanity? Because, ladies and gentlemen, this is Deadpool, a superhero who takes great pleasure in the bizarre.

We’re here to fill you in on the latest Marvel Comics superhero movie, which will be distributed by 20th Century Fox. Hold on to your chimichangas because this is going to be a wild journey.

Deadpool: Who is he?

Deadpool

Deadpool, actual name Wade Wilson, is an aggressive mercenary with a strong background in martial arts and swordplay. He was given fast healing abilities through the Weapon X program, effectively rendering him immortal.

Deadpool’s entire body appears to be extensively scarred since his cancerous cells regenerate just as quickly as his regular cells due to the fact that he was diagnosed with cancer at the time of the Weapon X experiment (and possibly wreaking havoc on his brain chemistry). The whole face mask is the result. And the power to sarcastically leave while being beheaded.

Fun Fact: Deadpool enjoys chimichangas a lot.

What connection does Deadpool have to the X-Men?

Deadpool


Deadpool originally joined the New Mutants, a group of young X-Men, as a supervillain, but over time, he evolved into an antihero who fought alongside Wolverine, the X-Men, and even a few Avengers.

Before acquiring his regenerative abilities, Wade Wilson, a chatty mercenary, appeared as Deadpool on the big screen. Reynolds portrayed him in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and even though the film wasn’t that great and fans bemoaned the muting of the infamously nicknamed “Merc with a Mouth,Reynolds made enough of an impression in both of those and in the leaked Deadpool test footage that the studio wanted him for a second go-round.

What’s up with Deadpool?

With an eerie similarity to the DC Comics villain Deathstroke in terms of both outfit and abilities, Deadpool made his debut in The New Mutants comics in 1991. He was co-created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld, and his name, Wade Wilson, is a play on Deathstroke’s true name, Slade Wilson.

Since his debut in the 1990s, Deadpool has quickly developed a devoted fan base among comic book readers and convention goers. Seriously, during conventions, everyone is dressed as Deadpool. Why? Because he breaks the fourth wall and is a humorous parody of well-known superheroes.

Deadpool frequently brings up the fact that he is in a comic book, much to the amusement of his readers and the consternation of his fellow comic book characters. The whole thing is turned into a meta-commentary joke as he even leans into his similarities to every other comic book character, including Deadshot, Deathstroke, and a loose version of Spider-Man.

Should You Read Any Deadpool Comics?

Deadpool

Short answer is Yes, Yes, Yes! You should try these one:

  • Deadpool, Volume The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (2013) features a humorous character team-up with Captain America and Wolverine as well as a Deadpool origin story.
  • X-Force Uncanny Vol. 1 (2011–2012): The mercenary’s first significant team-up and a more somber side (along with a costume change).
  • No partnership is better than that of the rambunctious and talkative Deadpool and the mute and stern part-cyborg Cable from the 2004 film Cable & Deadpool.
  • Joe Kelly’s Deadpool (1997–1999) is widely regarded as the archetypal version of the antihero and served as the start of the comic book character’s comedy career.

Blade lost it’s director

Almost everyone is aware of what is going on with Warner Brother’s Flash movie. The movie had other issues before Ezra Miller’s weird string of detentions and accusations, though. The Flash was changing directors as quickly as Jay Garrick vibrating through solid objects before their current PR disaster with the movie’s leading man. In hindsight, The Flash’s director departure was the first sign that the movie was in trouble.

Blade

We are a little concerned because of the current news regarding the Blade movie. The entrance of Blade in the Marvel universe has been eagerly anticipated by fans of the franchise, along with the appearances of Deadpool, Wolverine, and Daredevil. Blade from 1998 was the first film to provide Marvel as a corporation the boost it needed before Iron Man became the MCU’s success trigger. In any case, the director in charge of bringing a vision of Blade to the MCU has made the decision to leave the project two months before filming is set to begin.

Variety has reported that Bassam Tariq is no longer the “Blade” director for Marvel Studios.

Tariq’s resignation is unexpected because filming on Marvel’s next film about the renowned comic book vampire slayer was supposed to start in November. Along with Delroy Lindo and Aaron Pierre in supporting roles, Mahershala Ali will play the lead in the movie. According to those with direct knowledge of the matter, Tariq will continue to be involved in “Blade” as an executive producer even if he will no longer be the director.
