Around the Tubes

The weekend is almost here and we’ve got so much to do to rap up the year while hopefully dodging bad weather. What do you all have on tap? While you think about that and wait for the work day to end, here’s some news from around the web in our morning roundup.

South China Morning Post – Marvel ‘insults China’ by making its first Asian superhero film about Shang-Chi, a son of Fu Manchu – This isn’t too surprising though it’s most likely the origin will change. Still, will the history be a problem for Marvel Studios? It’s a big deal as the studio relies heavily on the region for their films bottom line. The country is a powerhouse when it comes to the box office and any bumps could be devastating in the short and long run.

Before CAROL DANVERS takes flight in 2019’s first Marvel Studios film, immerse yourself in this all-new adventure! Spinning out of the mysterious events of Avengers: Infinity War, NICK FURY and MARIA HILL set off on life-or-death missions that lead directly to the appearance of CAPTAIN MARVEL!

Marvel Studios Celebrate The First 10 Years With New Behind-The-Scenes Collectors Edition!

Titan Publishing has announced Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years – a fantastic behind-the-scenes collectors edition celebrating the first 10 years of Marvel Studios movies from Iron Man to Ant-Man and the Wasp.

In 2008, Tony Stark made his first Iron Man suit. Shortly after, Nick Fury told Stark that he had “become part of a bigger universe…” In the years since then, amazing new places – like Wakanda – have been discovered, the Avengers have assembled, the Guardians of the Galaxy have formed, and old friends have fought a Civil War.

During this time, the hunt for all six Infinity Stones has continued. Now, all the worlds, all the characters, and all the Stones have finally come together, culminating 10 years of groundbreaking storytelling.

Featuring stunning photography and in-depth sections on each film, including a guide to each movie’s Easter Eggs and end-credits scenes, Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years looks back over the rich history behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Titan’s new Marvel Studios The First Ten Years includes interviews with stars Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Scarlett Johansson(Black Widow), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) and more, plus Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Co-President Louis D’Esposito.

Marvel Studios The First Ten Years is available in hardback from November 13 and magazine edition from October 30.

Disney’s Loss is Warner Bros. Gain as James Gunn Hops on Suicide Squad 2

Warner Bros. apparently doesn’t care about trolls as they’ve opened up their arms to James Gunn who will write and possibly direct the sequel to Suicide Squad.

Gunn was fired by Disney as trolls set their sites on the outspoken director over tasteless jokes he made about rape and pedophilia in the past. Gunn apologized and said he had grown as an individual. Disney caved to pressure firing him, though keeping other problematic individuals on staff both behind the scenes and starring. He had been working on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The film will reportedly still use his script.

Suicide Squad revolves around a group of supervillains recruited by the government in a Dirty Dozen type situation. The first film starred Will Smith and Margot Robbie and earned $746.8 million worldwide on a $175 million budget. Gunn’s sense of humor and action shown off in both Guardians of the Galaxy films can easily translate to the property. The property also allows reinvention and recreation with a rotating cast of characters which opens it up even more for Gunn to play with.

This isn’t the first director Warner Bros. has poached from Marvel Studios. Joss Whedon who was behind the first Avengers and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. worked on Justice League. Can we hope for a Joe Johnston directed Superman?

Dave Bautista who played Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy and has voiced his displeasure over the firing has already said he wants to sign up for what comes next. Can you say the next Bane?

Chloe Zhao Will Take on Jack Kirby’s The Eternals

Marvel Studios has found their director for The Eternals in Chloe Zhao. The film is based on the creations by Jack Kirby. The script is by Matthew and Ryan Firpo.

The concept is near-immortal beings known as Eternals and monstrous off-shoots known as Deviants, both created by cosmic beings known as Celetials. Created in 1976 by Kirby, the concept was influenced by such works as Chariots of the Gods which explored ancient gods and aliens.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that one aspect of the story will involve “the love story etween Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.”

The concept of the Eternals have been hinted at in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Thanos being on himself and some vision of their world is shown in Avengers: Infinity War and Knowhere in Guardians of the Galaxy is the head of a Celestial.

Zhao has been on Marvel’s radar for a while and was one of the directors considered for the standalone Black Widow film.

The film is believed to be part of Marvel’s Phase 4 which will begin after the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War.
