Marvel TV series are rapidly spreading beyond their ABC and Netflix homes, between FOX, Freeform and more, so might HBO be next? Jessica Jones co-creator Brian Michael Bendis seems to have confirmed as much, developing Marvel Icon imprint Scarlet for a live-action series with the prestige cabler.

It may be hard to believe, but Comic-Con is very, very close — next month, in fact. And that means that we’ll be hearing a lot more about this year’s panels and special presentations in the weeks to come. After sitting out last year’s con, Marvel is returning to San Diego in July and it looks like they’re bringing at least a couple of their upcoming superhero releases to Hall H.
Although best known for his recent role as Judge Lance Ito on American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, Kenneth Choi is no stranger to the Marvel universe, having previously played one of the Howling Commandos in Captain America: The First Avenger. Choi is returning to the MCU, but this time he’ll be playing a different role as the actor has joined the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming.
A while back, Sharon Stone revealed that she has a “wee part” in an upcoming Marvel film, though she (obviously) wasn’t at liberty to discuss further details. Based on her coy wording, we just assumed she might be playing Janet Van Dyne (aka the original Wasp) in Ant-Man and the Wasp, which would reunite Stone with her Basic Instinct co-star Michael Douglas. The actress has dropped another tiny clue about her mystery Marvel role, but it’s not exactly the most helpful hint. If anything, we’re more confused now than we were before.
Josh Brolin knows the entire story for Avengers: Infinity War. And the Mad Titan approves.
Anyone sitting in the Captain America: Civil War theater had at least some pang of discomfort at Steve embracing a flirtation with Sharon Carter, great niece to his one true love, the late Peggy Carter. Even Agent Carter herself, Hayley Atwell has weighed in, but now might go full supervillain to curb the new pairing. “You can’t tap that!”, Atwell said at Dallas Comic-Con over the weekend.
Tom Hiddleston hasn’t seemed particularly enthusiastic or optimistic about reprising the role of Loki in the MCU, but with Avengers: Infinity War promising the epic assembly of Marvel characters yet and a new Thor sequel on the way, the actor’s return seemed inevitable. During a recent appearance at Wizard World, Hiddleston expressed excitement for Thor: Ragnarok, teasing the evolution of his mischievous villain and confirming another run-in with the Hulk. Oh, and he also responded to those James Bond rumors.
Brie Larson is reportedly the frontrunner to play Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, the studio’s first solo female superhero movie — which is kind of a big deal for a lot of fans. The Oscar-winning star of Room is a great choice for the part, but back in 2015, she had no idea who Captain Marvel was. That’s probably changed quite a bit since this interview took place, but it’s still pretty delightful to see her reaction nonetheless.
James Gunn has said — repeatedly — that he has no plans to include any of the Avengers in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which is happily operating in its own strange little corner of the MCU. But what about a former Avenger? Maybe one that wasn’t present for Civil War? If Gunn’s latest photo from the set of the Guardians sequel is to be believed, then we might be in for a very cool cameo.
The Infinity Gauntlet. An ageless weapon of immense, maybe incalculable power. Once worn, its owner essentially becomes a god. They control the elemental forces of space, time, reality, mind, soul, and power. One Infinity Gem wields unlimited energy. All six combined cannot be stopped by anything or anyone in the known universe.
