As more and more actor contracts expire they'll have to write them off in chunks somehow

As neat a concept as it was to do a massive crossover film thing, it would be neat if we could just get regular movies again.

I remember like a year or two ago, Feige was saying they're never gonna do a movie on the scope of Infinity War/Endgame again, because the logistics of having that many principals in one film were a complete nightmare that darn near shut down Hollywood. Doing a super-mega-ultra-reset event like that without all the characters would be inherently unsatisfying.
(Also, I think continuity resets are kind of a cop-out when you're still currently in a position to prevent things from getting that convoluted in the first place.)

I thought they would wait until after it aired for this, but Runaways has just been cancelled by Hulu; S3 will be the end of the series. This makes me very curious now what the cast was called to the Marvel Studios HQ for a couple months back.

Here's a new trailer:

Ladles & gellomen, the first trailer for Black Widow:


...oops, wait, no, that's not it. Lemme try that again:


That's out in May; here's an hourglass to help you count down:

Meanwhile, it's *10 days* until Runaways S3.

She might be on my list of most boring Marvel characters of all time. Hard to get jazzed up about superhero movies when the character has no powers.

Honestly this is the upcoming MCU movie I'm most interested in. Hope this can land the "spy movie/political thriller-influenced marvel movie" even somewhat as well as Winter Soldier

At least she doesn't look bored and disinterested constantly like a certain other Marvel girl who got her own movie. Emoting is good for actors to do.

Expected, but big, news: Marvel Television is officially being shuttered/folded into Marvel Studios.
Executive summary: ~90% of Marvel TV staff being laid off. Jeph Loeb retiring. Helstrom & the four non-MCU Offenders cartoons for Hulu will continue production, with all other in-development projects being dropped. No word yet on currently-airing cartoons (e.g., Marvel Rising). Final seasons of Runaways & Agents of SHIELD are already completed, will still air. This has zero effect on D+ shows, because those were being made by the film studio in the first place.

Speaking of Runaways, its final season comes out in 2 days.

I wanna voice some feelings on the end of Runaways: Episodes 3.01-3.09 are the best the series has ever been, for once pacing the plot reasonably & in general feeling like the Runaways comics. The finale, though, is some festering garbage, despite really strong performances from the entire cast.
Spoiler.
Fortunately, that episode literally erases itself from existence anyway, so I get to just pretend it didn't happen in the first place.
Anybody else watch? Thoughts?

Also, I've made my timeline into an easier-to-read infographic, but I won't be able to update it as quickly as the text version on page 1 of this thread.

Until we start getting more updates on SHIELD S7, Helstrom, or Black Widow, we are now in another content drought (bar random "Daily Bugle" videos).

^Good catch. This is a particularly interesting move, since WandaVision is the show that will almost certainly have the strongest tie-in with a movie, leading into May 2021's Multiverse of Madness.

Other news:
--Marvel Studios, NOT Fox, is beginning development on Deadpool 3, which is still expected to be R-rated based on all known statements from Disney.
--New Mutants director Josh Boone has confirmed that a new trailer for the film will release next Monday, & the movie itself is still scheduled to open in April. This is still officially not an MCU entry, but rather the final FoX-Men project. It has been delayed several times now, first to wait until Dark Phoenix came out (even though it was ready 1st), then again when Dark Phoenix was delayed for reshoots (that didn't help), then *again* for its own Fox-mandated reshoots (which never ended up happening, if Maisie Williams's hair color for the past year is any indicator), then AGAIN when Dark Phoenix bombed at the box office.

Let's throw down some more news from around the ecosphere:

--Shang-Chi & the Legend of the Ten Rings began filming today in Singapore.
--A leaked audition tape indicates that WandaVision will include Wanda & Vision's twin sons from the comics....(& Quicksilver!?) (The show is currently filming.) Not sharing the leak because it contains child actors who did not get the role.
--Loki will begin filming soon.
--What If will be broken up into 2 seasons of 10 episodes each.
--Ms. Marvel is supposed to begin filming in April; this would indicate that it's been moved up in the release order.
--Hawkeye is scheduled to begin filming in July, legal issues permitting.
--Spidey 3 will begin filming this summer....with reshoots in the winter & spring.....by which time the moratorium on Daredevil characters will be over........sooooooo maybe Peter gets a good cheap blind lawyer? ;)
--Per Taika, Love & Thunder will likely begin filming in August in Sydney, weather permitting.

Bad news:

--Falcon & Winter Soldier has hit a production delay because of the earthquake in Puerto Rico, its next filming location.
--Shang-Chi has hit a production delay because of the fires in Australia, its next filming location.
--Scott Derrickson has stepped down as director of Multiverse of Madness, which is scheduled to begin filming in May.

Good news:

--No delay has been announced on Multiverse of Madness, which suggests that a new director has already been found but not announced.
--Endgame just won 2 Critics Choice awards for Best Visual Effects & Best Action Film.
--Endgame has also been nominated for Best Visual Effects at the Oscars.
--New Black Widow teaser:

I didn't even watch the commercials in the Super Bowl this year; I had to work. I missed new teasers for Black Widow....


& the first 3 D+ shows:


Elsewhere: Helstrom is supposed to finish filming this month. Also, "Marvel Television" has been rebranded as "Marvel TV Studios", which indicates that the division will still be used in some capacity, because otherwise there would be no reason to do that.

Our next confirmed release date is Black Widow, due out 3 months from yesterday.
SHIELD S7 will probably premiere shortly after that; it's another summer run.
Falcon & Winter Soldier is currently scheduled for an August premiere.
Eternals is slated to open on November 6th.
WandaVision has just been announced to start in December.
Helstrom is due out this year as well, but with no date announced yet.
