Rumors of Patrick Stewart returning Professor X in the MCU
Which aren't true. He said he won't return since he made Logan.

"Here's the problem... If we had not made Logan, then yes, I would probably be ready to get into that wheelchair one more time and be Charles Xavier. But Logan changed all that," Stewart added. "Here's a tiny anecdote. The first time that Hugh [Jackman] and I saw the film in public was at the Berlin Film Festival, which is where the movie premiered. Shortly after Xavier's death scene, I found myself getting very emotional but I had to keep a hold of myself because we were sitting in the middle of this cinema. And then I saw Hugh's hand come up to his eye and wipe away a tear. I thought, 'Dammit, the bugger's crying. Oh, let it out Patrick.'"

"Hugh took my hand, and we held hands with the last seven or eight minutes of the film because there was so many things we were upset about,"Stewart recalled about the tear-jerking scene. "We were moved by the story. We were moved by one another. We were moved by the movie. But we also both made the decision that we were saying goodbye to our characters as well. In that sense, it was not just the deaths of those two men in the franchise, but it was also goodbye to our part in them as well."
But YouTube clickbait thumbnails ignore the truth of what he said to get you to watch their bullshit.

Rumors of Patrick Stewart returning Professor X in the MCU
I hope they aren't true. He nailed that character out of the park, and I can't think of a better choice. But I still hope its not true, because I feel like they need to start with a clean slate of actors who will stay in the role a solid 10 years if the MCU stays popular. I'm not a fan of recasting roles before reboots.

I guess it was good that this was a light year for them anyway.... I really need my Marvel fix soon though.

At least there are rumors of Agents of Shield coming earlier now.

One Big Room, Full Of Bad Bitches

Appearing on the U.K.'s The Graham Norton Show, Evans was asked if his time as Cap was truly over.

"Yes, I think it is," Evans responded.

"It was a great run and we went out on such a high note that it would be risky to revisit it in my opinion," he continued. "It was such a good experience and I think it's better left that way."

It'll be interesting seeing (after 'Endgame') if they'll go for more ensemble event-movies or if they'll stay on the 'in-universe-but-self-contained' path they apparently have going on now. And if it's the former, I wonder who they'll have take up the spotlight, after Tony Stark, if they wanna go that route again, that is. That looks like a big 'if', since I'm sure RDJ's conditions/demands were in no small part influential to the whole thing. It's likely the studio will make sure they won't be put in that position again.

Half-interested in Spiderman, hopeful for the Dr. Strange sequel and extremely on the fence for the fourth Thor.

PS: Imagine what a Marvel mararthon'll look like, say, fifteen years from now.

If the next big event in 10 years is going to be even bigger than Infinity War and Endgame, as in a massive space battle against multiple worlds or something to that scale. I can imagine Captain Marvel taking the lead as she would know the most about the galaxy/universe. Her character was intentionally unlikable in Endgame and her own movie so obviously her next character arc would involve her becoming more empathetic towards people. We saw the Avengers dislike her at the start of Endgame and after the 5 year gap she was a part of their team and they got along.

Things can change and plans can change. If not Captain Marvel I can see Doctor Strange leading the charge.

I am ready for some Galactus and Living Tribunal action.

I am still hyped for Black Widow... The more I hear, the more I like

I like the idea I heard about Doom and Magneto possibly having parallel stories and neither one being just a bad guy

So it looks like we might be getting Kang in Ant-Man 3, if true the stakes are definitely increasing in that franchise.


*EDIT*
And is this the actor that plays Batroc in the start of Winter Soldier on the set of Falcon and the Winter Soldier?

GSP!

I'd love to see Kang in the show. Would lead in lots of good stories. They could use the time travel equipment from endgame for Kang.

So Marvel have found their She-Hulk. Tatiana Maslany.


I have not personally seen her in anything so have no idea what she is like as an actor.

Well, he was heavily implied in iron man 2 and 3 as I recall and he is the bad guy in one coming up so it makes sense to not make him a one and done.
He'll be in Shang Chi.
Mandarin has been a dangling thread since Iron Man 3 and Marvel haven't figured out what to do with him. He could still be a one and done villain.

They’re planning Agents of Atlas so they’ll keep him around.
I just looked up Agents of Atlas and they are basically an Asian super hero team. Very intersting and maybe Mandarin will stick around for longer.

During the past few months my wife and me watched all MCU movies in chronological order from Captain America to Endgame... with my 7 years old son. It has been AMAZING to live them again through his eyes.

I might be doing a full watch before Black Widow comes out. My sisters boyfriend hasn't seen them. This will be my 4th MCU watch through.

I hope she is a good actor.

Also this.

*EDIT*
I hope there are some flashback scenes with Coulson.
:)
It's not a "Nick Fury" series. It's Nick Fury in a show. Probably the Secret Invasion show.
