‘Falcon and the Winter Soldier': McU Veterans Daniel Bruhl and Emily VanCamp in Talks to Join Disney+ Series

Two more Marvel Cinematic Universe actors are boarding “Falcon and the Winter Soldier,” one of the four planned Marvel Studios series for Disney+.

Emily VanCamp and Daniel Bruhl are in talks to join Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan on the Disney+ series, an individual with knowledge of the production told TheWrap. Bruhl and VanCamp both appeared in “Captain America: Civil War” — VanCamp made her McU debut in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” Bruhl played the villainous Zemo, while VanCamp portrayed Sharon Carter, the niece of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell).

A rep for Marvel Studios declined to comment. The series stars Mackie and Stan reprising their big-screen roles as Sam Wilson aka Falcon and Bucky Barnes/The Winter Solider, respectively.

Marvel Rumored To Be Developing A New Avengers Movie

Given what happened in Avengers: Endgame, there’s now a ton of speculation on what comes next for the McU. As everything built up to the conclusion of the Infinity Saga and the last outing in Phase Three, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Kevin Feige and co. have been keeping quiet about what’s to come in the next few years. Sure, we know they’re working on new projects like The Eternals and sequels like Captain Marvel 2, but as of yet, there’s been no official reveal of the Phase Four slate.

One project that’s been heavily rumored though is a New Avengers movie, and a recent leak is once again telling us that Marvel’s indeed working on it and the film could be with us as soon as May 6th, 2022. Of course, given that this is an unverified leak, we advise taking it with a major grain of salt,

Avengers 5 Rumored To Release In July 2022

Much to the surprise of no one, Avengers: Endgame is crushing the global box office right now, with the film closing in quickly on Avatar as it just hit $2.5 billion. Money aside though, fans are absolutely loving it and it’s also received the critics’ stamp of approval, proving that Marvel Studios is Kryptonite to bad reviews. All in all, it’s the perfect sendoff to an era of superhero films that hit all the right notes.

Of course, Avengers: Endgame also provided finality for many of its heroes and you shouldn’t expect to see the original team that was first assembled in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers together again. In fact, even Robert Downey Jr. said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that “the [Avengers’] future’s very uncertain.”

Of course, this doesn’t mean Marvel won’t be pushing ahead with a new incarnation of the team, as we reported

Vision Vs. Thanos Set Photo Showcases Elizabeth Olsen's Twisted Sense of Humor

Vision Vs. Thanos Set Photo Showcases Elizabeth Olsen's Twisted Sense of Humor
Avengers: Endgame set images have been getting shared frequently since the official spoiler ban lifted. However, the Russo Brothers decided to go back to Infinity War in their latest behind-the-scenes look at the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Elizabeth Olsen's twisted sense of humor is the focus of the image, which McU fans will more than likely think about the next time they watch Infinity War and one particular heartbreaking scene.

One of the toughest scenes for McU fans to watch in Avengers: Infinity War is when Thanos comes down to Wakanda to obtain the Mind Stone. He tracks down Vision and proceeds to rip the precious Infinity Stone from his forehead as Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch looks on in agony. With that being said, it was a different vibe behind-the-scenes as evidenced in the Russo Brothers' new social media post. Josh Brolin and Paul Bettany are acting out the scene

When Is Avengers: Endgame Coming to Disney+ Streaming?

Marvel and Disney are going to give Disney+ subscribers a little bit of an early Christmas present in the form of Avengers: Endgame. The upcoming streaming service from the Mouse House is aiming to be a direct competitor to Netflix. In order to do that, they're going to have to focus on delivering some seriously desirable, exclusive content. It doesn't get any more desirable than Avengers: Endgame and it will be made available on the service before the end of the year.

It was previously revealed that all Disney titles will live on Disney+. That includes everything in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first title to debut on the service will be Captain Marvel, which came out a little over a month before Avengers: Endgame. But during a recent quarter 2 earnings report, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that their smash hit follow-up to Infinity War will be makings its way to Disney+ in December.

Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige continues developing the live-action TV series "Vision and the Scarlet Witch", starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, reprising their 'Marvel Cinamatic Universe' roles, for the "Disney +" streaming service, available Fall 2019:

With Marvel Studios in Charge of the Disney+ Shows, Marvel TV Turns Focus to Hulu

With Marvel Studios in Charge of the Disney+ Shows, Marvel TV Turns Focus to Hulu
As Marvel TV readies the return of “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” this Friday, its already-tenuous place within the Marvel Cinematic Universe could become even more fragile.

That’s because big brother Marvel Studios is set to take on a bigger role in expanding the McU to TV, with a slew of shows for Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+. That Marvel Studios is being tapped for such an important job threatens to marginalize Marvel TV and push it further out toward the periphery of the hugely popular shared universe.

But in Hulu, Marvel TV has found a lifeline. This year alone, Hulu has signed two separate deals with Marvel that added seven shows to its slate to go along with “The Runaways,” which has been streaming since 2017. “Our plans with Disney+ have not been discussed yet,” Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb told reporters last week. “At the moment we’re super

Avengers: Endgame Director Confirms Vision’s Fate

Last year’s Avengers: Infinity War was full of moments that left Marvel fans traumatized, but for many viewers, the single most devastating sequence was the death of Vision. Given that the android had perished at the hands of Thanos, rather than in the Snap, it was always likely that he wouldn’t be returning in Avengers: Endgame, but with folks like Loki and Gamora still appearing despite being killed by the Mad Titan, viewes were hopeful that Paul Bettany’s hero might show up, too.

Well, as you know if you’ve seen the film, Vision didn’t appear at all, and was one of the only major McU players who didn’t get a chance to return in some form. Frankly, it was quite surprising, as like we said above, many dead characters were still able to play a part in Endgame thanks to time travel and of course,

Ron Howard in ‘Serious Discussions’ for ‘Willow’ Sequel Series at Disney+

Ron Howard in ‘Serious Discussions’ for ‘Willow’ Sequel Series at Disney+
Ron Howard is in talks to bring a “Willow” sequel series to Disney+, with actor Warwick Davis — who played the title character in the 1988 film — set to return, TheWrap has learned.

Howard said that “serious discussions” for a continuation — not a reboot — from himself and “Solo” writer Jonathan Kasdan were ongoing at the upcoming streaming service, during an interview with the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast.

“Warwick is so cool and so good and he’s such a good actor that I really hope we get the chance to see the mature Willow in action,” Howard said.

Disney+ declined TheWrap’s request for comment on the project.

Directed by Howard and produced by George Lucas, “Willow” starred Davis as Willow, a reluctant farmer who plays a critical role in protecting a special baby from a tyrannical queen who vows to destroy her and take over the world in a high fantasy setting.

How Much Will Robert Downey Jr. Earn from Avengers: Endgame When All Is Done?

How Much Will Robert Downey Jr. Earn from Avengers: Endgame When All Is Done?
Any one actor who headlines a multi-billion dollar franchise should expect to make millions of dollars for their work. That math is relatively easy to do. But Robert Downey Jr. isn't just any actor and he isn't just the face of any old franchise. This to say, he's going to make a truly unbelievable amount of money for his work in Avengers: Endgame, since the movie is breaking records at the box office and is poised to become one of the highest-grossing movies ever.

Warning: minor spoilers ahead for Avengers: Endgame. According to a new report, Robert Downey Jr. made approximately $75 million for his work in last year's Infinity War. That is an astonishingly high salary, but it isn't as though that number was arrived at arbitrarily.

Why There’s No Point In Making Any More Avengers Movies

In the biggest non-surprise of the year, Avengers: Endgame is crushing the global box office, with a billion dollar opening weekend becoming a huge possibility. Money aside, the fans have given it a thumbs up to go with the critics’ stamp of approval, proving that Marvel Studios is Kryptonite to bad reviews. All in all, it’s the perfect and supreme sendoff to an era of superhero films that will not be soon forgotten.

Without giving away too much for those who haven’t seen it yet, Avengers: Endgame provided finality for many of its heroes. It was a close of a chapter and you’d be wise to not bank on seeing the original team assembled in Joss Whedon’s The Avengers together again. In fact, even Robert Downey Jr. said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that “the [Avengers’] future’s very uncertain.”

(Spoiler warning: Please don’t read this if you don’t want to know details about “Avengers: Endgame” and how it connects to the Marvel TV shows.)

Avengers: Endgame” features many, many cameos — but only one that finally consummated the relationship between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the ABC television shows starring Marvel characters.

When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) travels back to a S.H.I.E.L.D. base in 1970 to retrieve the Tesseract, he runs into his dad, Howard Stark (John Slattery). Stark the elder asks his driver why Tony seems so familiar. But the driver is familiar too: Fans of ABC’s short-lived “Agent Carter” recognized him as Edwin Jarvis, played by James D’Arcy.

Now that Marvel Studios has wrapped its 22-movie “Infinity Saga” with “Avengers: Endgame,” the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going multi-platform.

That’s because, in an effort to prop up Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+, Marvel Studios is developing a slew of TV series starring many of the McU’s big-screen characters.

Even though “Avengers: Endgame” finally linked the big screen McU to the TV-adjacent universe on ABC (more on that here), the connections between the big and small screen up until this point have been a one-way street. TV

Elizabeth Olsen, who is set to star as the Scarlet Witch in new Disney+ show WandaVision, has revealed when filming starts and how long the first season will be.
