San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Day 3 Recap

UPDATE 7/21/19 9:52 a.m. PT: The lineup of movies and TV shows is the entirety of the next phase in the MCU, with one exception. Blade will be in phase five.

Marvel layed out phase four for hungry fans, new trailers for upcoming shows, and a lot more was released yesterday at Comic-Con. Each day gets bigger, and day three might take the cake for the entire convention.

Phase 4 is Coming

To start off, Black Widow showed off some footage while shining light on what to expect. Like the rumors suggested, this prequel will show off the dark side of Scarlett Johansson’s agent who once was not the hero we all have gotten to know. The film is directed by Cate Shortland and stars Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff, David Harbour as Alexi, O-T Fagbenle as Mason, Rachel Weisz as Malena, and Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova.

“I don’t think I could have played this iteration of Natasha 10 years ago,” Johansson said at the panel. “It would’ve been a very different film. I get to play Natasha as a fully realized woman and in all of her many facets. I’m excited for fans to see the flawed side of her, what she perceives to be the flawed side of her. And I’m looking to wipe out some of that red in my ledger, so you guys will be seeing a lot of that.”

While the film has been shooting for 30 days, enough was done to show off a clip to the audience at Hall H. A fight scene with Pugh and Johansson shows off the film’s villain, the iconic Taskmaster. Black Widow is set to release on May 1, 2020.

Next up is Eternals. Chloe Zhao sits in the director’s seat along with her extensive roster of characters including  Angelina Jolie (Thena), Richard Madden (Icarus), Kumail Nanjiani (Kingo), Lauren Ridloff (Makkari), Brian Tyree Henry (Phastos), Salma Hayek (Ajak), Lia McHugh (Sprite), and Don Lee (Gilgamesh).

“It’s about this group of incredible immortals but through their journey, we really get to explore what it means to be human and humanity on our time on this planet,” Zhao told the crowd.

The characters are a group of immortals who look after Earth from afar. This will set the groundwork that future phases of the MCU will have a cosmic center around upcoming storylines.

Eternals hits theaters Nov. 6, 2020.

Destin Cretton will head Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, starring Simu Liu. Meanwhile, Tony Leung is the Mandarin, the real one, not the fake from Iron Man 3.

Taika Waititi returns after the success of Thor: Ragnarok. While Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson will return in their roles, someone from the old days is too, Natalie Portman. She will wield the mighty hammer, yes she will become her own Thor essentially.

Waititi read Jason Aaron’s comics series, The Mighty Thor, which introduces the female version of the electrified God. He told the audience, ” only one person who could play that role,” which lead to Portman coming on stage while holding on Mjolnir and saying, “I’ve always had a little hammer envy.”

Thor: Love and Thunder will come out Nov. 5, 2021.

Diverting away from the movies briefly, these are some of the Disney+ shows that are on the way to expand the universe.

Spring 2021 will deliver WandaVision, with Elizabeth Olsen reprising her role as Scarlett Witch and Paul Bettany returns as the recently deceased Vision. Teyonah Parris will also star as the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, who last appeared as a child in Captain Marvel.

“We’re going to have a lot of fun,” Olsen said. “It’s going to get weird. We’re going to go deep, we’re going to have lots of surprises, and we’re going to finally understand Wanda Maximoff as the Scarlet Witch.”

“Last thing I knew, I died in Infinity War, so I literally have never been this confused in front of this many people in my whole life,” Bettany said.

The long-awaited and teased Loki series will arrive around the same time. The series will center around Loki as he disappeared with the Tesseract in Endgame.

WhatIf.jpg

Next is an animated series titled What If…? which will explore the many multiverses in the MCU. While many familiar voices will come and go in the series, one name that has been attached is Westworld actor Jeffery Wright who will play as The Watcher.

“The Watcher is a being, a non-earthly being who observes all things,” Wright told the audience. “He’s watching over the multiverse and occasionally may or may not intervene with the doings of earthlings. Other than that, he’s off doing his own thing.”

Ending the TV series side of the panel, and there is still more news after this, is Jeremy Renner’s own show, Hawkeye. The show follows him teaching Kate Bishop to take on the bow.

Coming back to the movies, Benedict Cumberbatch’s solo flick finally got an official title. Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness sees director Scott Derrickson return with an eye for a May 7, 2021 release date.

“Just because Quentin Beck makes up lies about the multiverse doesn’t mean it isn’t real,” Feige told the audience, referencing to Spider-Man: Far From Home.

WandaVision will be the first Marvel TV series to play a hand in one of the films as Olsen’s telekinetic hero will appear in Doctor Strange’s next adventure.

“He’ll be facing unexpected things,” Cumberbatch said of his character. “I think he’ll be in a position rather like the audience of not knowing what’s coming at him. There was a lot of authority I thought in the Avengers iterations [of Strange], so we’re going back to kind of destroy him, I think.”

Derrickson will use his experience with Sinister to make Multiverse of Madness be the first scary MCU movie, while Fiege quickly tells everyone it will still be PG-13.

San Diego Comic-Con 2019 Day 1 Recap

All of us nerds wait every year for this weekend. San Diego Comic-Con is full of announcements for future movies and shows that generate excitement during the convention. Only one day has passed, and plenty of juicy news has dropped, so let’s get into the thick of it.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Ending

The hit Marvel show on ABC, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., will go on its final mission for its seventh season.

The show gave background on behind the scenes work with S.H.I.E.L.D. across the MCU. While the TV work from Marvel never gets seen on the big screen, the events happening on the small screen certainly have an impact on the overall universe.

The Witcher Details

An interview with Entertainment Weekly gives some extra details on the upcoming Netflix series based on the popular novels and video games The Witcher. Showrunner Lauren Hissrich (Daredevil) gives some background on the narrative, casting, and some of the controversies that surround the upcoming adaption.

“We’re not adapting the videogames, it’s a straight adaptation of the books,” Hissrich told EW when discussing the video games and her vision for the show. “Which is great as the videogames are also an adaptation of the books. They went one direction, we actually get to go another. We’re kind of holding close to our chest what we’re doing in the first season.”

Like any story, you have a protagonist and antagonist. Hissrich discusses the “shades of gray” in both the books and her adaptions.

“There isn’t really a villain,” she said. “One of the things we’re enjoying exploring is all the shades of grey in the books. The characters you’re rooting for in the beginning may not be the characters you’re rooting for in the end. And characters you hate and seem absolutely evil are motivated by something that’s really relatable and human and emotional.”

The showrunner gives some insight into the controversy that surrounded the casting of Freya Allan (Into the Badlands) as Ciri.

“I think that anytime you’re doing casting and you’re casting something that has a lot of existing fans you’re going to get a lot of opinions about whether it matches fans vision,” she said. “This franchise has millions of fans. We knew we weren’t going to make everyone happy. As you know, per the controversy, we looked at everyone possible for this role. And when we found Freya we made her an offer that day. She’s incredibly special.”

Final Trailer for IT: Chapter Two

The sequel to the profitable Stephen King remake is coming out Sept. 6. During SDCC, the final trailer for the anticipated horror flick dives deeper into the horrors that await audiences.

Westworld Season 3 Details

Co-showrunner Jonathan Nolan spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming season of HBO’s confusing sci-fi drama. He spoke about the narrative will be easier to consume and the casting.

“This is season is a little less of a guessing game and more of an experience with the hosts finally getting to meet their makers,” Nolan told EW.

Familiar faces like Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) but many others have not been confirmed. One new face will be a construction worker named Caleb, who will make a significant impact on Dolores. Caleb will be played by Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul.

““Aaron’s character will challenge Dolores’ notions about the nature of humanity,” Nolan said. “He’s the type of person who doesn’t get to go to Westworld.”

Westworld season three arrives next year.

Original John Connor, Edward Furlong, is Back in Terminator

James Cameron is bringing back all of the old faces from the original Terminator movies. Skyping from the set of the next Avatar, the producer announces Edward Furlong will come back in the role of John Connor.

Terminator: Dark Fate is supposed to take the series back to its roots. The sixth entry comes out Nov. 1.

Star Trek: Picard Gets Information

Sir Patrick Stewart is going back into space in the upcoming Star Trek series. The series coming to CBS all access will take Picard into a fight while developing his character further since fans had last seen him.

The Star Trek panel is Saturday, so expect plenty more details to be released that day.

His Dark Materials Trailer

HBO is adapting another novel series into a show. Taking from Phillip Pullman’s His Dark Materials Trilogy which consists of The Golden CompassThe Subtle Knife, and The Amber Spyglass. This is the first trailer for the upcoming fantasy series.

Top Gun: Maverick Lands a Trailer

Tom Cruise is gearing up to train a new generation pilots in the new trailer for Top Gun: Maverick. It has been 33 years later, and the sequel will fly in on June 26, 2020.

Marvel’s Avengers Goes Deeper 

Square Enix showed off its first official trailer for their upcoming Avengers title. The game got a mixed reaction from fans and critics, but at SDCC a new look gives some extra insight into what it will be like stepping into the shoes of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

Everything shown will be held off to the public until Gamescom, which goes from Aug. 20 to 24. Customization for gear and outfits were shown. Square goes into the deep history of Marvel to bring out inspired costumes from the many comics that have come over the years. The upgrading system to empower each hero was also shown.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is Not What We Thought

During EA Play the world got to see a 15-minute demo of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The game was a typical linear adventure game with level design and combat that would be expected from this type of single-player experience. The closed doors demo showed the demo with an added few minutes of gameplay to show that this is something entirely different. As of June 25, this has become public.

Staying on Kashyyyk, we see the protagonist Cal swimming with his droid. He slowly swims in the middle of a battle. A TIE fighter crashes and explodes on an AT-AT. Once close enough to the still standing machine, Cal climbs on from some vegetation that is sticking to the legs. The climbing system is precisely the same as what was shown in the initial demo but in this new setting.

The hero hops in from an open hatch to get inside of the AT-AT. After taking out the guards and pilots, Cal takes control of the vehicle. This section becomes an on-rails shooter as he fights other vehicles and stormtroopers in the surrounding area.

Inside of Cal and his team’s ship, we get a glimpse of the open nature of the game. Other planets pop up on a map that has not been discovered yet. The developers at Respawn have said there will be an exploration of other worlds, and this is our first glimpse into this mechanic.

More interaction becomes available as Calk speaks with his crew for some banter and story information.

Upgrades and leveling up was mentioned, and the first look comes from Cal upgrading his droid, BD-1. His companion can now short circuit enemy tech.

While all of the details that have been discussed are not shown in this extended cut, Respawn does provide more proof of their concepts compared to the demo shown three weeks ago.

MY TAKE:

I enjoyed the first demo but felt it looked overly linear and an overall generic licensed game that had potential to be fun. This does give me more hope on a rich experience that will rival any game in 2019. We will see, but I have high hopes that this will be one of my top games of the year.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order comes out Nov. 15 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
