Will Black Widow be pushed out of schedule again?

‘Black Widow’ is currently scheduled to kick off summer movies on May 7. The highly-anticipated movie was initially set to kick-off the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4, but has seen multiple delays over the last year due to Covid-19. Several medias now reports that there’s a risk that the movie could be delayed again. Industry experts and insiders have been speculating that Hollywood’s next round of release date delays will begin to impact the middle of 2021.

It is quite surprising though, that Disney and Marvel seem to not do the same as HBO are doing with their entire movie set for 2021, since this is only makes fans angrier. We’ve however seen weird twists before and the prior Disney+ trailer leak – if it was even legit (which we still don’t know) – said it could also be put on premier access. Disney reportedly has four weeks before they have to make a decision on the release date.

We still hope that our questions will be answered around 23rd february.

WandaVision finally introducing S.W.O.R.D. properly with a skrull easter egg

Did hell break loose this time? Well, as mentioned before, we’ve spoken about when things may beaks loose for real. In episode 4, S.W.O.R.D is finally introduced – wishes that many viewers have spoken about have come true. At the MCU page, some gaps are now filled in.

What we first believed would be some kind of 1980’s episode, turned out to be a tinly jump between the spaces of the sitcom reality and the real reality, giving a quite exciting recap from the former episodes. Monica “Photon” Rambeau is also introduced, by being the first S.W.O.R.D agent getting sucked into Westview – who became Geraldine for a short period. The episode ends with what then happened to Rambeau – which has been shown in some of the official trailers.

In this episode we will finally meet Randall Park (Jimmy Woo in Ant Man) and Kat Dennings (Darcy Lewis in the Thor movies) that are leading the outside operation. The promises for an accelerating action style series are now in progress. The hexagonal shape and the “Mephisto theory” that has been mentioned a while by both Emergency Awesome and New Rockstars shows up on Woo’s border. At the same screen capture at this page, Skrulls are also being brought up as a slight note in the left corner.

From Episode 4 we will also get introduced to the WandaVision’s sitcom cast, identified as…

  • Mr & Mrs Hart: Todd and Sharon Davis.
  • Norm: Abilash Tandon.
  • Jones: Harold Copter.
  • Beverly: Isabel Matsueida.
  • Herb: John Collins.

As it also seems Ag(atha Hark)ness, don’t show up in the cast just yet.
The names in the cast is also real names from the WandaVision production, mentioned in this video.

There are also new breakdowns for this one (currently most of them from Emergency Awesome). The most recent are presented below. Some fans that – this far – seems to be quite newborn to Marvel and the MCU, that asked why the hell WandaVision was a sitcom, also finally got their stupidity confirmed.

Disney 18+ release dates – real or fake?

Update: As it seems after Disney Investor Day it is not a fake. Disney will release a mature selection at DisneyPlus. However, we still don’t know whether the date is real or not.

According to a leaked trailer, several blockbuster movies are revealed to come to “Disney 18+” next year. Amongst them we could see Deadpool 2 (July 2nd), Falcon and the winter soldier (August 13th) and Black Widow (April 16th) – and surprisingly also The new mutants (july 2). How this affects everything is currently unknown (a loose rumour said – the first time – that WandaVision should’ve premiered in the end of november 2020, which never happened). Also, there is nothing that confirms the trailer as a fake or real deal, which is also still discussed. Except for a theory that it looks as a promotional trailer to be unveiled during Disney’s planned investor call on December 10th.
