Fury Series Set For Disney+
It looks like there are more Marvel productions headed for the Disney+ platform, one involving a particular fan favourite character. Samuel L. Jackson will reportedly reprise his role as Nick Fury in an upcoming Marvel TV series, which will air exclusively on the platform. Kyle Bradstreet (Mr. Robot and Copper) will write and produce the series. Nick Fury is one of the central characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having had substantial roles in The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain Marvel and Spider-Man: Far From Home.

The supporting cast includes Benicio Del Toro, David Harbour, Ray Liotta, Kieran Culkin, Brendan Fraser, Bill Duke and Julia Fox.

Hodge Is The Hawkman
Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam movie will feature a number of DC comic book characters, one of which is Hawkman. Now it has been announced that Aldis Hodge will take on the mantle of the winged superhero from the planet Thanagar. Joining Johnson and Hodge is Noah Centineo who is portraying Atom Smasher. The film will also debut the Justice Society of America with Cyclone as well as Doctor Fate, which have yet to be cast.
Lion King Part 2
With over USD1.6 billion generated at the global box-office, it was inevitable for Disney to green light a sequel to the Lion King. According to a recent report, the studio has tasked Oscar-winning filmmaker Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) to helm the film. The sequel may well be an entirely new story as opposed to a re-telling of the direct-to-video animated features, The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride and The Lion King 1 ½. But then again, the live-action treatment of The Lion King was practically a carbon copy of the original animated film.
