The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)

He/him
Of the two, I'd go with Emily all day. Margot is heading up the new Pirates of the Caribbean isn't she? I doubt she'll also be jumping into the MCU. I also just can't see her in that role at all.

John and Emily were two names that were shopped way, way, way back. They're a really good fit for me. But I also remember reading that they were going younger for the MCU F4, with John's Reed being just an alternate universe one to satisfy the fans.
 
While we’re discussing that event, I wonder if there’ll be a Wanda related announcement at D23 with regards Elisabeth Olsen’s next appearance? I was hoping for one at CC. Are there any rumours floating around on that?

Nothing confirmed, other than it being almost certain she'll pop up in the Agatha show. Hence the name change to Coven of Chaos.

It makes sense that might be the next time we'll see her, as Agatha might be the only other magical being who is capable of either finding Wanda, or knowing who else can.
 
I was hoping they’d go for a mature Fantastic 4, their whole thing is being a family, and having them all be in their early 20s would be a bit of q miss for me. Still looking forward to whatever it’ll end up being as the last movie was so atrocious.

Hoping the make Sue as powerful as she actually is!
 
Yeah this is a very weird way to treat a brand new live action remake. They've been reliably big business and this could have done well for them. Still might obviously, but not even having a full trailer 2 weeks before release is just odd and is really only sending the message that it's either going to be delayed or it's absolute crap.

They're releasing lots of big series/movies on Disney+ Day on September 8th to drive subs, exactly as they did last year with Shang Chi, Jungle Cruise and Home Sweet Home Alone.
 
Who do we think it’ll be?

John and Emily are the obvious choices but a YouTuber made a convincing argument on how his appearance in MoM was simply fan service. If he’s to be involved in the movies, it’ll be as a director only. He’s too busy as a producer/director to commit to a MCU franchise as an actor. We’ll see.
 
Hasn't Emily stated before that she'd never want to be in a comic book movie too? After she turned down Black Widow I think her priorities changed and doesn't want to be locked into a contract. Maybe if John did it she would too but I don't see it.

Mm, there have been suggestions, if not quite rumors, that Jon Watts left because Krasinski would only play the part if he could direct the film. Although part of me has always thought him being shredded like string cheese by Wanda was Feige giving a middle finger to the fans, telling them to stop casting his movies. But, we’ll see.

He’s also just a bad Reed Richards, but that counts for very little ‘these days’.
 
Ok, episode two of She Hulk was a let down. I’m quickly losing faith in this show and am starting to think that Marvel has no idea what to do in the realm of TV.

WandaVision, it seems, was a complete fluke.

I actually quite enjoyed it, but I'm not sure how much of that was down to Tatiana Maslany's charisma.

Thing is, I always enjoy the opening episodes of all these Marvel series. But they all (Wandavision and Hawkeye aside) go severely downhill once the actual plot kicks in.
 
Yeah, I enjoyed it too! The plot seems to be coming together a bit now - and the ideal of her working in superhuman law is really fun.

I do think it doesn't really work as just a 22 minute episode and then a whole week until the next one, because the plot doesn't feel episodic, it feels like a movie plot stretched out. They should be dropping two episodes a week or something.

Well, to be fair each Wandavision episode after the third one (I think it was the third one) was way worse than the previous one, so... It was simply strong enough overall regardless, otherwise they had no idea how to maintain the charm/appeal of the show and characters once the sitcom/real world dichotomy started to fade, and it only kept getting worse.

?? WandaVision pretty much got better with each episode.
