Falcon and Winter Soldier ended – What’s up next?

With breakdowns of the season finale from Emergency Awesome and New Rockstars theorizing what will come – such as Sharon Carter in Secret Invasion – we now ask ourselves what’s up next since there will be a small gap in the time schedule before Loki starts. But first, New Rockstars mentions in the last breakdown of episode 6 that Sharon Carter “governmental access” also could open up for Armor Wars, a thing that I suspect that not everyone have been thinking of this far. But imagine; with access to techology directly linked to the government is perfectly referring to when stuff gets in the wrong hands.

While we still build the API we expect that next week will not be entirely empty, even if we haven’t checked the internet flows for a while. For example, the way Disney+ presenting the MCU right now, there should be a new episode of “Marvel Studios: Assembled” next week going for The Making of Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

And since the final episode of Captain America and The Winter soldier, there’s also a announcement of Captain America 4 that we are pushing out, both in the API and the prior MCU Timeline. This also opens up for a new extra resource for the API for what’s coming up next in order (Example: https://tools.tornevall.com/api/mcu/coming). In short, you should always be able to see what’s coming next in the schedule. Which leads us to the next point: HULU – and maybe also Star.

If don’t only count the TV-shows and MCU Films, the next thing coming in date order is as you can see above the M.O.D.O.K. animated series that was announced in february. A new post arrived at Marvel HQ just a few days ago. Even if it is supposed to be a HULU-only release, I do hope that it will be shared with Star also so that all Marvel hungry fans can continue digest more content during this spring and summer.

Do you have ideas for the MCU API?

Yeah, we’ve just included a search function in the MCU API. Parts of the API, when communicating with it, will automatically fetch some basic info from IMDB what will make the API partially searchable with a “find”-request.

If you have further ideas of what to include in a generic API for the MCU, feel free to get in touch! You can do it via the contact page.

For example, if you want to fetch all MCU related movies where Chris Evans has been an actor you can simply run a request like this: /api/mcu/find/Evans.

The finder API will then look for the data in some of the selected columns that will be returned in the request like this (be aware that the URL in the screenshot is a development server and is not guaranteed to always work). The database is also currently incomplete as this is built on tests.

Black Widow remains a theatrical release according to the shareholders meeting

With a quick check in our feeds, Black Widow seem to be remain a theatrical release. According to shortlist, Bob Chapek has confirmed that May 7 is still the release date and only for the big screen. They also say that cinemas in UK will open 17 May and therefore the film have to be delayed to get a UK release.

The release schedule was also confirmed by The Walt Disney Annual Meeting of Shareholders yesterday, which also will be the last meeting for Bob Iger – executive chairman and former CEO (2005-2020) of The Walt Disney Company as he leaves in the end of december.

They also mentioned being able to reopening theme parks (with limited capacity and strict health and safety protocols in place) and consumer product businesses, by making significant changes in how they manage and operate those parts in the company. This makes us believe that the date could remain unchanged, as long as everything goes as planned – both with reopening cinemas again, and the COVID vaccination speed.

What about premier access?

According to a rumour, not releasing Black Widow on premier access, is because of specific clauses in Scarlett Johanssons contract that prevents Disney and Marvel releasing it on Disney+. Scarlett Johanssons contract for the Black Widow movie has some special terms in it about how they are allowed to release it. Charlie “Emergency Awesome” Schneider talks about this in the below video, in the fifth minute of the video.

We do not have any more source about this (yet) than the video below.

Jimmy Kimmel – WandaVision – presents a 1960’s bewitched episode

Elisabeth Olsen is currently in London, supposed to film for Doctor Strange 2, but since the hospitals are overwhelmed due to COVID-19 (London is experiencing a second strict lockdown), they can’t go back to work which may mean there could be delays.

Jimmy Kimmel talks with her regarding fan theories and WandaVision. Unfortunately, Elisabeth, can’t tell much that isn’t already revealed – and the only thing we still surely know is that Wanda and Vision are living their sitcom dreams. They have all the american sitcoms, starting with the 1950’s a la Dick Van Dyke (which they also filmed in front of a live studio audience).

Questions like if Vision’s tie is a clue is unanswered and Elisabeth explains that even if the easter eggs – even if they were real, they’d go way above her head. She also denies the fact that WandaVision is built on the popular comic book House of M with the response: “Our prop guy Russel would be a very clever man if he put that in”. Which in fact can caused by the way easter eggs are being broadcast to the fans (except for the regular restrictions that disallows the actors to reveal information). So there are plenty standard denials amongst the fan theory questions. Emergency Awesome is breaking down this here.

The Jimmy Kimmel show also presents a first never-before-seen clip, from a 1960’s Bewitched episode (see below with the full video from Jimmy Kimmel) from the series. It is extracted from the Jimmy Kimmel show just below the youtube-clip.

Deadpool 3 vs Spider-Man

According to a portugese site, Tom Holland wants to be in Deadpool 3 as Spider-Man. The idea is fantasic since there could reside continuity in such thing and also follow comic book timelines. But with the Sony rights behind our backs, where Spider-Man is currently just borrowed to the MCU, how possible would this be to really happen?

According to the above linked site, there are also (very loose) rumours about Deadpool 4 in development which also is mentioned here. The rumour has been started by an insider – Daniel Richtman – at Patreon. But for a real confirmation, we’d have to wait.

There are neither any indication of the Spider-Man/Deadpool scenario happening anytime soon, but according to the insider Daniel Richtman, Tom Holland had shown the interest in Deadpool 3.
