One of the big things that Marvel Studios is doing on top of the Phase 4 and 5 movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the big MCU TV shows they are producing for the Disney plus streaming site. Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige is developing a number of big budget TV shows for the Disney+ streaming service. But now it seems that may not be all because days after Hulu pulled the plug on GHOST RIDER, it’s now believed that all future live-action small screen productions will fall solely under Feige’s Marvel Studios banner.
A Marvel Television insider recently told Variety that they at HULU have “several” live-action projects in the works. But for know the only one that known is HELSTROM as the rest have either been scrapped or have uncertain futures. RUNAWAYS and CLOAK AND DAGGER (both which are set to air upcoming seasons) have yet to be renewed beyond their upcoming seasons.
It’s being reported that the plan now is for Marvel Studios to basically be in charge of everything to ensure that the stories put out there are of a consistent quality. With the Disney+ shows, “Marvel Studios execs and Feige held meetings early on to discuss how to maintain the visual standard fans have come to expect from Marvel’s films while still bringing their budgets more in line with other TV shows.”
Marvel Television has never really recovered from the embarrassment of THE INHUMANS, which many do not like to speak of. Along with the cancellations of the Marvel Netflix shows it is very understandable. But the animated projects which are set to hit HULU are still all set to go .
Now, it sounds like Marvel Television’s future projects will mostly be of the animated variety.
We will leave it up to interpretation who is “mommy” and who is “daddy” but nonetheless it is all around good news because Sony and Marvel Studios/Disney have made amends and the co-produced 3rd SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING film will happen. Amy Pascal will also once again co-produce through Pascal Pictures which she has done over the past two films.
The third film is scheduled for release on July 16, 2021. Also as part of the arrangement, Spider-Man will also appear in a future Marvel Studios film. Which ultimately makes this a very big win for all of the fans.
Now in case you are unaware what happened. money was the overall root of the problem. Disney was reportedly seeking a 50/50 co-financing stake in the Spider-man films. This is because of Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige’s continued guiding hand which resulted in the delivery of Sony’s highest grossing film ever with $1.13 billion. It also has to be mentioned that Disney already owns the merchandise on Spider-Man. The original Sony-Marvel deal over the last two SPIDER-MAN movies saw Disney getting an estimated 5% of first gross dollar.
This of course now has changed with the renewed partnership. Sony has agreed to the terms that Disney proposed for its participation in a future Spider-Man sequel. With this Disney/Marvel Studios would co-finance 25% of a third HOMECOMING movie for a 25% equity stake.
Kevin Feige released a statement which stated,
“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it. Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
Amy Pascal who has produced the first two Tom Holland led Spider-man films also released a statement.
“This is terrific. Peter Parker’s story took a dramatic turn in Far From Home and I could not be happier we will all be working together as we see where his journey goes. This has been a winning partnership for the studios, the franchise and the fans and I’m overjoyed it will continue.”
No matter what we now can breathe a sigh of relief as the conclusion to the story can be told and then see what happens within Sony’s own Spider-man Universe.
Just when people were getting excited for the arrival of the GHOST RIDER series on Hulu, that excitement has to be quelled as now the series will no longer be moving forward. This was reported as an exclusive from Deadline.
Deadline is reporting that seemingly the reason for the series not going forward is creative differences between Hulu and the GHOST RIDER team.
Even though Gabriel Luna will not be reprising his role on Hulu as Robbie Reyes, MARVEL’S HELSTROM is on track as well as four connected animated series. MARVEL’S M.O.D.O.K, MARVEL’S HIT-MONKEY, MARVEL’S TIGRA AND DAZZLER SHOW and MARVEL’S HOWARD THE DUCK, set to roll out in 2020, culminating in a special event, MARVEL’s THE OFFENDERS.
It is not yet known if the series will shopped elsewhere but there has been rumors that Marvel Studios is interested in bringing a Ghost Rider show to the Disney plus streaming site.
Marvel Studios is still amping up its star-studded roster and this latest addition proves that. VARIETY is reporting that Hailee Steinfeld is currently in talks to star in the upcoming Disney Plus series, HAWKEYE.
If this becomes official Steinfeld will join Jeremy Renner who reprises his role as Hawkeye aka Clint Barton, the now and arrow using Avenger and Steinfeld would play the role of Kate Bishop, his daughter. In the comics Kate Bishop eventually takes up the mantle in which her father held and joins the team of the Young Avengers.
Knowing how Disney and Marvel studios like to fully invest in their stars this more than likely would not be a one-off series for Steinfeld. Starring in the series would likely represent a long-term relationship with Marvel studios and it is reasonable to assume that the Bishop character would eventually spin off into either her own standalone series or even appear in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Over the past couple of years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has made some major changes when it comes to its level of representation in its film. This is due to in part the blockbuster successes of BLACK PANTHER and CAPTAIN MARVEL and even the upcoming SHANG CHI and the recently announced Ms. Marvel Disney plus series in the works,he MCU continues to grow more and more diverse.
This even goes into one of the studios upcoming projects THE ETERNALS, that announced it would feature both the studios and the MCU’s first openly gay hero. Now the identity of that character has yet to be disclosed but Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige has shared some new details on the hero.
While speaking to Good Morning America during the recent D23 Expo in Anaheim.“He’s married, he’s got a family. And that is just part of who he is.”
Of course Feige did not say which specific member of THE ETERNALS, would be the bero but it does confirm previous reports that the character is male. Nonetheless, Feige’s statement makes it clear that the hero’s sexuality won’t be hidden,
Directed by Chloé Zhao, The Eternals stars Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff , Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, Angelina Jolie, Barry Keoghan, Gemma Chan and Kit Harington.
When Gemma Chan was announced as a cast member of Marvel Studios THE ETERNALS many were wondering if the CRAZY RICH ASIANS star was reprising her CAPTAIN MARVEL role of Minn-Erva or if it would be a completely different character. Now we know that not only is it a different role but is the starring role.
Chan will be playing the character of Sersi as announced during the Marvel portion on the D23 stage. She took to twitter to express her gratitude and excitement.
We also were treated to seeing the characters in their costumes through concept art.
