Not gonna bother to link.  The news is all over the place.  Feige is saying that these properties, among others are in development.  Sounds good to me.

Well, let's hope Nova is more like the comic version -- and not the Nova CORPS from the first Guardians film.

Somebody in a comments section mentioned that Thanos could destroy Xandar getting the stone from them, paving the way for a new Nova Corps with helmets.

I hope they do "classic Moon Knight. But with the gritty Season 1 Daredevil tone.

A former sex-symbol that later had her breasts removed as the lead in a super-hero movie could be seen as a push for feminism/diversity which is a stated goal of the studio.  It could also generate "controversy" that gets eyes on a project with lesser known names.  Could be a savvy move.

I like her.  She’s weird.  She walks the walk in terms of her beliefs.  She’s been a female action hero before.  A few times.  She brings “gravitas” to the production.  And visually, she works as Sersi. 

And let’s face facts:  This movie is gonna be a less about Kirby than most of us would like, and more about binding the MCU together after the Avengers are done.  Aside from the Eternals, rumor is we may see Eros/Starfox, Mentor (Thanos brother), Hercules, and perhaps Genis Vel.  Tying all this to Captain Marvel through the Kree/Skrulls.  Hercules seems a stretch though as he may be able to carry his own movie.  Marvel may has a tough time registering that trademark though. 

Whatever happens, we should know more at SDCC.  Feige says that they will not announce anything much until after Spider-Man: Far From Home.  Out July 5th.  SDCC will be a couple of weeks later.  Good timing, huh? 

As for Moon Knight, let them take their time.  This one would be really easy to fuck up.  The temptation to be Marvel’s Batman should be avoided like a crazy ex with a machete collection.

I'm not a big fan, but thought she was excellent in Magnificent ...er, meant Malificent.  gah.gif

So Marvel/Kevin Feige has had talks with one Keanu Reeves. Could he be our Adam Warlock? (admit haven't thought of it before but I can see it). Also total rumor but John Cena might be up for John Walker/USAgemt in the falcon/winter soldier series.

Good Lord! Go ahead and pat yourself on the back for this bizarre casting choice Disney/Marvel, but I prefer casting an actor a little closer to the source material. I love female characters, but Makkari is based on the Roman God Mercury -- whom I'm pretty certain was male.

Saw that.  Ajak and Sprite are also gender flipped.  Of equal concern to me is it seems that Sersi isn’t in the movie.  She’s the female lead of the original Kirby series.  Gilgamesh=Forgotten One.  Probably who they were talking about when gay Hercules was mentioned. 

This is what you get when the property is not well know in the public eye and TPTB decide to reimagine the whole thing to square up to PC culture.  Let’s hope it’s at least a great story.

Good grief! It's like it's a challenge to them now.
