The Marvel Cinematic Universe looks to expand across studios now that Marvel and Sony have come to an agreement with regards to the Spider-Man universe. With Spider-Man now appearing in Captain America: Civil War, there is now an apparent deal in place that will also see MCU characters also appearing in Spider-Man films produced by Sony. “He is in the universe now, and the fun of the universe is that characters go back and forth,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told EW. The new Spider-Man film is expected to swing into theatres in summer 2017.
Edge of Tomorrow Gets A Sequel
Edge of Tomorrow was one of the pleasant surprises of 2014, which is why there is a tinge of excitement to hear that a sequel is being planned. The Edge of Tomorrow sequel will reunite director Doug Liman and stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt. No word yet on when the sequel is set to enter production but it could be a while considering the busy schedules both Liman and Cruise have at the moment. The director is currently waiting to direct the X-Men standalone adventure, Gambit whilst Cruise is in the midst of filming the Mummy reboot.
Sherlock Season 4
The fourth season of the hit series Sherlock is currently in production, which is pretty amazing considering Benedict Cumberbatch’s insane filming schedule. Fresh off filming the Marvel superhero film, Doctor Strange, the actor is now busy in front of the camera filming scenes for Sherlock season 4. According to the early synopsis, season 4 of the series begins with the mercurial Sherlock Holmes ( Cumberbatch), back once more on British soil as Doctor Watson (Martin Freeman) and his wife Mary (Amanda Abbington) prepare for their biggest challenge yet: becoming parents. Sherlock season 4 is slated to air sometime in 2017.
Marvel’s Inhumans Delayed
With a huge amount of superhero films currently in production, it’s only natural that some of the projects get faced with production issues. Now, it’s been reported that Marvel is planning on delaying its Inhumans movie. Currently slated as part of its Phase 3 series of films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Inhumans may well be shifted to Phase 4 instead. But the news isn’t so bad for fans of the comic book series as the Inhumans are currently part of an on-going story arc in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on FOX.
That Men in Black– Jump Street crossover is happening at Sony Pictures and the studio has even given the film a name. MIB 23 will combine both comedy franchises in what could be an epic crossover. Jump Street stars, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are set to reprise their roles as Schmidt and Jenko who will cross paths with agents from the MIB universe. Both Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are not expected to be back for this crossover, so do expect MIB 23 to serve as a soft reboot of sorts for the sci-fi comedy franchise. The film is set for release in 2018.
