Disney Quietly Adds Fantastic Four to Disney+ Roster. Since the acquisition of Fox by Disney, many fans have wondered when Disney would begin streaming Fox titles on their new streaming service, Disney+. Some of the most anticipated films include the Fox created Marvel movies such as the X-Men films yet others like the Deadpool films have been deemed inappropriate for the streaming service. Though most of the X-Men films are currently streaming via HBO and HBO Max, Disney did quietly add Fantastic Four (2015) to the Disney+ library this week.
The synopsis for the film share on Disney+ states, “A young genius builds a portal to another dimension with help from friends and colleagues but an accident leaves one stranded and the others altered with unusual powers Four years later, the stranded victor returns as a megalomaniacal conqueror and the others must put aside their differences to stop him as the Fantastic Four.”
The movie is a surprise addition to the Disney+ roster and only received a minor announcement via the “New to Disney+” category on the Disney+ home page. Very few featured films have slipped through announcements before being surprisingly added to the streaming service and though it performed poorly in theaters it’s still an interesting take on the iconic characters from the Marvel Comics.

In a recent interview, actor John Krasinski shared that he would love to play Reed Richards for Marvel Studios. More recent designs of Reed Richards within the comics are looking very twin like to The Quiet Place and The Office actor. Rumors spread like wildfire that he was already cast in the role without auditioning after it was revealed Krasinski’s wife, Emily Blunt, was approached by representatives from Marvel Studios while on set for Disney’s The Jungle Cruise, with news spreading that Emily and John were offered the roles of Reed Richards and Sue Storm for the remake of Fantastic Four that would be the first F4 movie tied to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Neither Disney nor Marvel has yet to confirm any of these rumors, but it seems that Krasinski and Blunt seem rather rehearsed in their responses to questions about the potential casting, and have refrained from answering Yes or No so far… Both actors seem eager to work with Marvel Studios, especially after Krasinski came VERY close to playing Captain America in the MCU, previously, and Blunt being very active with Walt Disney Studios with Mary Poppins Returns and The Jungle Cruise.

California Says Film Studios Can Resume Filming as of June 12th With Some Conditions. At the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, filming for television and film ended on a moments notice and has just begun getting the all clear to resume around the world.
This week, the California Department of Public Health made a formal announcement stating: “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020, and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations,” the department shared. “To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers.”
According to the report from LA Times, “On Monday, a task force of studios and union officials submitted a 22-page white paper to governors in California and New York; its proposed health and safety guidelines aim to protect workers and performers as production resumes. The paper calls for dramatic changes to what had previously been routine practices in the film and TV industry, which was booming before the pandemic because of the demand for content by multiple streaming services. The shutdown drew focus to long-standing problems with hygiene and sanitation on film sets, including a lack of hand-washing stations.”
It should be noted, some of our favorite upcoming titles are currently or scheduled to be filmed in various locations around the U.S. and the world, so this would only affect titles currently scheduled to film in the State of California. No formal announcement has been made for nationwide filming to resume. We do know that films such as the Avatar Sequels have resumed filming in New Zealand and Prague recently re-opened to international filming and will be one of the filming locations for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier coming to Disney+.

Anthony Mackie Creates New Orleans Grocery Worker Relief Fund For Those Affected by COVID-19. There is no doubting that the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the world in many ways, most of them very negatively. With food insecurity and unemployment at an all time high in the United States many celebrities have been helping to raise funds for various food banks and distributors around the world. Though for many folks a lack of food isn’t the only issue.
Avengers and Altered Carbon star, Anthony Mackie is partnering with United Way to help grocery store workers in New Orleans, LA by giving a $150 credit towards the electric bill of those who qualify.
“We often take for granted the people that are always there for us. I go to the grocery store 3-4 times a week for me and my family,” said Mackie. “Every time, I come face to face with essential workers who are providing me and so many others with one of the most important necessities, food. Now, more than ever, it is important that we express our gratitude and appreciation.”
“The more we can do to support essential workers while we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, the better they are able to focus on caring for their families and the community,” said David Ellis, president and CEO of Entergy New Orleans. “We are proud to partner with New Orleans native Anthony Mackie, United Way of Southeast Louisiana and the New Orleans Council on Aging in supporting grocery workers who remain committed to ensuring residents of New Orleans have access to fresh and nutritious food.”

Mackie is trying to do some good and bring some appreciation to those who normally get overlooked by those they help and feels it’s now time we acknowledge their sacrifice to help others during this difficult time. If you or someone you know lives in the New Orleans Parish and works for a grocery store in NOLA and could use this assistance, you can read the rules and fill out an application by CLICKING HERE.
Mackie’s latest project, Marvel Studios The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is expected to begin streaming exclusively on Disney+ in late 2020 or early 2021 due to production delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The series is rumored to be split into two parts as re-shoots have yet to begin on the series due to the delays.
We love seeing celebrities making a positive impact on the community and looking out for the people they care about. We also can’t wait for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier to premiere later this year! Which Marvel series are you the most excited for? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

The #SaveDaredevil Campaign Has Fans Hoping for Reboot Once Character Rights Return to Marvel Studios. It’s been a year and half since Netflix and Marvel Entertainment called it quits on Marvel properties Luke Cage, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, The Punisher, Iron Fist and The Defenders.
According to The Defenders actor, Royce Johnson, Marvel never wanted to end the series run, and is still very interested in the franchises. Under the contract between Marvel and Netflix, Marvel Entertainment and parent company, Marvel Studios, would have to wait 18 months-2 years before releasing any new content with the characters from the cancelled franchises.

“I mean, talking to [Marvel TV president] Jeph Loeb, I read that the memo had said, ‘To be continued.’ There is a clause that I heard through rumor that we have to wait 18 months, up to two years. Will we get the same people? We don’t know that. I think they got together with a great team, I mean, with the writers, producers, editors, scorers, the stunt teams, everybody.”
“I mean, we couldn’t be more thankful with the crew we had, but it wasn’t a Marvel issue,” Johnson added to his comment. “Apparently, it was Netflix that said, ‘We’re not moving forward.’ For whatever reason. I mean, I know these shows are costly with the CGI, and stunt guys, and special effects, and stuff. And that costs money, and maybe Netflix felt that they [were not] gonna profit from it, and then this whole purge started, you know?”
This means it is very likely we will see a reappearance for these characters as early as September 2020 for Luke Cage and Iron Fist, and for Daredevil as early as November 2020.
At the time of the series cancellation, Marvel Fans created the #SaveDaredevil campaign to reboot the franchise, with the idea of having Daredevil pick up where it left off or potentially moving on to the MCU. A resurgence of the idea occurred after the posting of a 6-month reminder on the SaveDaredevil Instagram account.
A post shared by Save Daredevil (@savedaredevil) on May 29, 2020 at 3:15pm PDT
With the idea of Daredevil returning to Marvel, fans were quick to share the likelihood of Daredevil making an appearance in the next Spider-Man film scheduled to release in summer 2021, but Daredevil actor, Charlie Cox said if Marvel is thinking of bringing the character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it’s not with him.
“I hadn’t heard those rumors, but it’s certainly not with my Daredevil. I’m not involved in it. If that’s true, it’s not with me. It’s with another actor,” Cox shared while speaking with ComicBook.com.

Charlie had a great attitude about the whole situation though, and shared that he would still be interested in reprising his role if given the opportunity, regardless of when or how Marvel would want to present the character again. “Look, I had a great time. I’m so grateful I got to play that character as long as I did. Of course, I’d love to keep going. I’d love to be involved with it,” the actor stated.
Would you love to see Matt Murdock/Daredevil return to a streaming service like Disney+? Or are you ready to see the Hell’s Kitchen lawyer make his film debut on the big screen? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Hercules to Make First MCU Appearance in Upcoming Marvel Film. According to The Cinema Spot, another long standing Marvel hero is on the way! Hercules is rumored to make his first Marvel Cinematic Universe appearance in Marvel Studios’ Eternals.
No, we are not talking about the Disney animated style Hercules we all know and love. This would be the Hercules featured in the Marvel Comics for nearly 60 years!
Photo Credit: Marvel
Hercules first Marvel appearance was in Avengers #10 in 1964. In the Marvel Comics, Hercules is the son of Zeus, king of the gods of Olympus, and Alcmena, a mortal woman who lived about three thousand years ago. Recognizing the need for a son who would be powerful enough to defend both the Olympian gods and humanity from future dangers he foresaw, Zeus seduced Alcmena in the guise of her husband, King Amphitryon of Troezen. Thanks to Zeus’s enchantment, Hercules was born with the potential for extraordinary strength, which he first displayed before he was even one year old by strangling two serpents which attacked him. As an adult, Hercules is best known for his celebrated Twelve Labors, which were performed in part to prove his worthiness for immortality to Zeus.
The character is frequently featured with other Olympian characters, Thor, The Avengers, as well as The Eternals, which means Hercules’ introduction in the new Eternals movie is the most natural choice for his first MCU appearance.
It is currently unknown if Hercules will play a major role in the film or if he will simply be introduced in a post credit scene. It is also rumored that Hercules may make his way to one of the new Marvel Disney+ series such as Loki or She-Hulk depending on the storylines for the shows.
Eternals is set to premiere in theaters on February 12, 2021. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Marvel!
Rumored: ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’ to be Renamed for Season 2. Though The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has been the least secretive when it comes to the content we will get to see in any of the new Marvel series coming to Disney+, it seems the series will see an unexpected split between The Falcon/Sam Wilson and The Winter Soldier/Bucky Barner. That is, according to Marvel scooper Charles Murphy from Murphy’s Law podcast.
“Coming out of season one, [Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson] are going to have gone through something traumatic and be different,” Murphy explained in a recent podcast. “There was definitely at one point a plan for a second season… If they did have season two, it wouldn’t be called The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Season 2, it would be a thematically related thing with a different name.”
The series already has Marvel fans excited for the premiere with the reappearance of Sharon Carter/Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp) and the evil Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl). We will also be introduced to a new MCU character by the name of U.S. Agent/John Walker (Wyatt Russell).

“It’s going to be so cool and kind of crazy. All I can say is it’s just new and different from what you’ve seen so far,” Stan said of the series during a previous convention appearance. “I mean, it will be totally in line with everything that has happened and what we’ve seen and so on, but these characters are getting such additional mileage in terms of learning about who they are now, what they feel, what they’re thinking, and there’s a lot of action, comedy, you know there’s going to be comedy. I feel like you’re going to be happy. I think you’re going to be very happy. And there’s some crazy stuff, like stuff you don’t see coming from anywhere.”
The mystery revolving around the series is palpable, but to tease a split ending? Wow. Especially after it was announced the series would be filming reshoots after the initial storyline too closely resembled the COVID-19 pandemic. It is also rumored the series, along with WandaVision, will only premiere with the first half of the season in 2020. Likely due to production delays from the pandemic. If the series is picked up for a second season we could also see the creation of two new series following the heroes, or the possibility of one of the characters moving to a different Marvel series on Disney+.
We can’t wait for The Falcon and The Winter Soldier to premiere later this year! Which Marvel series are you the most excited for? How do you think the series will end? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Rumored: Marvel Studios and Sony Have Reached a New ‘Spider-Man’ Deal. Marvel Fans have been waiting to hear about the fate of one of the most iconic Marvel Superheroes, Spider-Man. For a time, it appeared negotiations had gone sour between Disney and Sony regarding the use of Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and it was feared that we had seen the last of the web slinging hero after the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
It seems we will hear about an update soon that is bound to make Marvel fans very happy, at least according to Marvel insider, Roger Wardell, who shared the news via Twitter stating, “Disney understands the money-making powers of Spider-Man while Sony is aware of being completely unable to compete with the Mouse at the moment. New agreement should please many Marvel fans.”
Disney understands the money-making powers of Spider-Man while Sony is aware of being completely unable to compete with the Mouse at the moment. New agreement should please many Marvel fans.
After public outcry from fans, and some intervention from Tom Holland aka Spider-Man himself, Disney and Sony agreed to renegotiate their terms and it seems the studios may have finally reached a new agreement regarding Spidey’s future that benefit the fans and the partnering studios.

“I am thrilled that Spidey’s journey in the MCU will continue, and I and all of us at Marvel Studios are very excited that we get to keep working on it,” shared Marvel Studios CCO Kevin Feige. “Spider-Man is a powerful icon and hero whose story crosses all ages and audiences around the globe. He also happens to be the only hero with the superpower to cross cinematic universes, so as Sony continues to develop their own Spidey-verse you never know what surprises the future might hold.”
The final installment in the Spider-Man Trilogy is currently set to swing into theaters July 16, 2021, but the films release may be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Company for all things Marvel!

J.K. Simmons Under Contract to Return in Future Spider-Man Films as J. Jonah Jameson. Recently, J.K. Simmons spoke with PeopleTV about his reappearance as J. Jonah Jameson at the end of Spider-Man: Far From Home and if fans can expect to see him in the next Spider-Man film.
“I don’t know if I would use the word expect,” Simmons replied. “When we signed on for the first movie we signed a contract to do two sequels as well. Which, that’s always a one-sided, well not always but in my case, a one-sided contract where you’re committed to do it, but they’re not necessarily committed to use your character in the ensuing movies. It was great to have the opportunity as these things evolve to be one of the holdovers from the previous version.”
To keep interest in the franchise going and to celebrate the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home on Digital and with the DVD/Blu-ray, Sony Pictures created a “real life” The Daily Bugle, in the form of an online network called: thedailybugle.net. The fully functioning website shares a special video from none other than J. Jonah Jameson himself, J.K. Simmons, sharing his take on Spider-Man and Mysterio.

The website also features stories based on the incidents in Spider-Man: Far From Home, including articles about Night Monkey, the missing Hydro-Man, and even the recent “raid” on Area 51. (Yes, really)
J. K. Simmons reprised his role as J. Jonah Jameson from the original Spider-Man trilogy starring Toby Maguire and Kristen Dunst for Spider-Man: Far From Home and appeared at the end of the film to tell the world a great BIG twisted secret. The identity of Spider-Man!
You can check out the intro video of J. Jonah Jameson’s first installment on thedailybugle.net below:
We can’t wait to see more of J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson in future Spider-Man films! Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Marvel.
Hugh Jackman Trolls Ryan Reynolds With Kids Birthday Theme. Any fans of the dynamic duo Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds know that the famous best buddies love jabbing one another in internet videos and have hosted a friendly “feud” over the years on social media.
It seems this time Hugh Jackman is taking the first jab after a Marvel fan named Sam enjoyed his 8th birthday themed around Deadpool and Wolverine, the characters portrayed by Jackman and Reynolds in the previously Fox owned Marvel titles.
Hugh Jackman shared the story of Sam in a recent tweet followed by the caption: “Sam celebrated his 8th birthday with dueling #Wolverine and #Deadpool cakes. I think it’s crystal clear won. Don’t you?”
From the photo, it appears Sam is ever so slightly a bigger fan of Wolverine, donning the iconic grimace and stance of Wolverine with claws drawn. Hence, the reason Jackman shared the photo. Currently, Ryan Reynolds has yet to comment on the tweet, but we all know a snarky comment or response can’t be far behind.
Regardless of what Ryan has to say, I’m sure Sam’s birthday was made by the acknowledgement from one of his favorite heroes and we hope he had fun celebrating his 8th birthday. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Marvel!
Chris Evans Confirms He Will No Longer Play Captain America in the MCU. Recently, Chris Evans appeared on The Graham Norton Show and shared his time as Steve Rogers/Captain America is at an end. His primary reason being he doesn’t want to sour Cap’s “Happily Ever After” ending unless the appearance would add to his story in a constructive way.
When specifically asked if Avengers: Endgame was truly the end Evans responded, “Yes, I think it is,” Evans said. “It was a great run and we went out on such a high note that it would be risky to revisit it in my opinion. It was such a good experience and I think it’s better left that way.”
Photo Credit: Marvel Studios
“It’d be a shame to sour that,” he said in reference to how Steve’s story wrapped up in Endgame. “I’m very protective of it. It was such a precious time, and jumping onto the movie was a terrifying prospect to me. I said no a bunch of times, and there’s a million and one ways it could have gone wrong. It almost feels like maybe we should let this one sit.”
As much as we will miss seeing Captain America on the big screen we are glad to know the character means more than a cash grab to Chris Evans and great care was given to do the character justice in the MCU. Which Marvel Movie featuring Captain America is your favorite? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

‘Agents of SHIELD’ Showrunners Tease MCU Crossover in the Final Season. The show runners for the hit series Agents of SHIELD teased something big is coming to the series in Season 7. The big tease came from an interview with Deadline about the final season and the show runners, Jefffrey Bell, Jed Whedon, and Jeph Loeb were asked about the potential for any MCU crossover for the series to which all three responded: “We’re going to bump into something,” Jed Whedon teased. “Yeah, we’ll bump into something,” Jeph Loeb shared with a laugh. “Something will definitely happen,” Jeffrey Bell replied.
“Part of making a show is a puzzle and part of it is a game and you’re working with people that you’ve known for a long time to try to create something good. Then, when you come to the end there is a bit of a pressure that you want to get that right. Here, I think it’s safe to say that all of us we feel like the audience will feel the thing we wanted them to feel in the end and will feel satisfied with the ending,” Whedon explained. “I also think that the emotion of having a last season and knowing it’s the end is heavy. I think that that carries into the episodes and carries into the storyline and the performances, and all of it. So, we’re happy with it and we’re actually happy to revisit it as we watch it, because we finished it a while ago,” Whedon added with a laugh.
Though all three refrained from sharing too much about what said crossover may be this has Marvel fans chomping at the bit to know: “Who or what will we see in the pending crossover?” With the clear use of time travel in the series and films truly, the possibilities are endless. We could be introduced to a new face that is set to appear in the films or Disney+ Marvel Series currently in the works, or we may see a veteran character appear and catch the team off guard. Personally, my vote is a young Steve Rogers (Captain America) before the super soldier serum and a young Bucky Barnes, but that remains to be seen.
We are already aware of several appearances such as Patton Oswalt’s return to the series, Enver Gjokaj reprising his role as Daniel Sousa from sister series Agent Carter, and more cameos are expected in the future according to series star Chloe Bennet (Daisy Johnson).
We can’t wait to see who and/or what is in store for the team in Season 7, but we are sad to see the series ending after a successful run on ABC. What do you think the big twist is? Which characters would you like to see appear in the series? We would love to hear your theories and thoughts in the comments.
New Agents of SHIELD episodes premiere on Wednesday Nights at 9 PM C/10 PM EST on ABC. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for all things Marvel!

One of the rumored cast members for the Shang-Chi film potentially leaked the restart of filming in Australia with a photo on Instagram and the caption, “Guess who’s back. Quarantine look after 10 weeks of isolating myself. Hope y’all are safe, time to get back to normal.”
“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Shang-Chi. Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, it is intended to be the 26th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
Producer Roy Lee shared there is relief at Marvel Studios regarding production concerns after it was learned a vaccine for COVID-19 would not be required in order for filming to resume.
“Initially, when the shutdowns began, I feared that we would have to wait for a vaccine to be developed before any production would be back up and running. But now I’m optimistic that there will be a plan in place to allow for smaller-scale productions to start before a vaccine is developed,” Lee speculated. “I believe that it will be one of the first studio productions that will start once we figure out the proper protocols that will ensure that the cast and crew are as safe, if not more, during production than they would have been pre-pandemic.”

Secret Marvel Movie In the Works at Sony Pictures. According to an exclusive report from Variety, Sony Pictures is working on a new Marvel Film and has tapped S.J. Clarkson to direct. Sony has yet to comment on the scoop, but signs point heavily to Sony’s interest in developing a Madame Web led film, potentially starring Charlize Theron or Amy Adams, whom are reported to be the top interests for the lead role of Cassandra Webb/Madame Web.
The character is unlike any we have seen in Marvel movies and is frequently characterized along with her chair connected to vital life functioning tubes that take the form of a spiderweb due to her life long battle with Myasthenia Gravis. Myasthenia Gravis is a neuromuscular disorder that causes weakness in the skeletal muscles, which are the muscles your body uses for movement. It occurs when communication between nerve cells and muscles becomes impaired.
In a synopsis of the character, Marvel shares, “Though Cassandra Webb suffered from a lifetime of blindness and many years of neurological deterioration due to Myasthenia Gravis, she compensated with her profound psychic abilities, establishing herself as a medium.”

Other than Clarkson, no other production team members, such as producers, writers, etc., have been announced at this time and it was confirmed by Variety that even the potential stars for the film have yet to meet with the Studio at the time of writing.
Should Sony decide to bring Madame Web into the Spider-Man film franchise it is unknown if the character would be considered canon with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, despite possibly appearing with Tom Holland‘s Spider-Man/Peter Parker.
