    Cool.
    Not sure about Illuminerdi, I see the name a lot but I can't remember how many of their stories have actually panned out.

    New Loki featurette:



    Plus, Paul Bettany on the future of White Vision:

    “I still don’t know that,” Bettany told the Playlist when asked if there were going to be more opportunities for the character. “I don’t have a contract. I don’t know that. I don’t know that at all. And all that I do know is, as far as this sort of traunch of press goes, it’s for an Emmy push, which is for a limited series. So it doesn’t look like that happening again. I mean, I guess it would be difficult to introduce White Vision and not deal with him in some way, but we have not discussed that.”
    Standing by for a "surprise" appearance in The Multiverse of Madness. ;)

    Yeah, I think that there is literally no chance, outside of paul Bettany suddenly dying or refusing to come back for some reason, that we won't see the new version of Vision in some way again. Its just too big of a character/hanging thread to not bring back. I don't know if it will be in MoM, although it would make sense.

    Couple of leaked photos from the She-Hulk set. Amazingly despite his presence not leaked by Ruffalo.

    My Marvel-Fu is letting me down here, so I've no idea who she's supposed to be playing.

    I wonder if the mo-cap stuff means he's still going to be Banner Hulk from Endgame?

    I figure he'll appear eventually. Rather my point was I think Bettany is being coy about not knowing when and that he'll pop earlier than expected.

    I don't even know who that actress is. Of the three actresses we know who will be in the show, she's not any of them.

    Well, I would hope so! They seem to be at peace in that state so why change it?

    Anais Almonte. She's an actress but also a stunt performer, so could be there in either function.

    Thinking a bit more about potential She-Hulk adjacent characters she could be Titania. (If she is let's hope for the sake of Agents Of SHIELD's canonicity her boyfriend doesn't also show up.)

    When I posted that, I wasn't sure how well they'd pull of that complex of a mo-cap character on a TV budget. But then I remembered that they seem to be giving these more or less movie budgets, so it probably won't be a problem. If they can pull off the kind of crazy shit we're seeing in the Loki trailers, Banner Hulk probably won't be a problem.
    Banner Hulk was one of my favorite parts of Endgame, so I'm hoping that will be the version we get.

    He's worn mocap suits for the Hulk in every movie except the first Avengers.

    There are two new episodes of Marvel Studios Legends up on Disney Plus. One for Loki and one for the Tesseract.

    I mean, I'd prefer not to see a debate on whether Agents of SHIELD is canon, which Creel showing up would certainly lead to (ironically, deliberately not using a character to avoid contradiction doesn't tend to lead to the same types of thoughts that the show is in-continuity). However, the Marvel Universe has recast actors before. Even if he did show up and had a different actor, the relevant question should be whether the two appearances are consistent. But, since that won't be the question, I'd rather not see the debate right now.
    Which is a shame because I actually really like the Absorbing Man and Titania's relationship in the comics - especially in Saladin Ahmed's Black Bolt series.

    Illuminerdi has another big scoop: Supposedly Tenoch Huerta (Narcos) has been cast as Namor for Wakanda Forever.

    Considering the messy rights issues regarding Namor, I'm much more skeptical of this report. We'll see if this gets collaborated by anyone else.

    Can anybody point me to one of their "scoops" that turned out to be correct; because they seem to have a new one every week.

    Hmm, he’s 40, which on the one hand might be a little long in the tooth to be cast as a guy who spends most of his time in his swimming trunks (for his debut into the bargain; presumably they’ll want to get another 5-10 years out of the character). But Bozeman, RDJ, Paul Rudd and others in the MCU were also far from the first flush of youth when first cast.

    What rights issues? I expected Namor to show up sometime. They hinted at it in Endgame.
