Brie Larson expresses interest in ‘A-Force’ movie

Captain Marvel herself, Brie Larson, has expressed interest in an all-female Marvel film, A-Force.

The A-Force could become a very real thing in the future now that Brie Larson has expressed a desire to do it with MCU architect Kevin Feige, and according to him, the final ingredient to the project happening is a matter of how much the fans want it (hint: they want it a lot)

A-Force is similar to the Avengers in that it’s a team of heroes, but the catch is that they’re all female. In the comics, characters like She-Hulk, Captain Marvel, Wasp and Scarlet Witch were all part of the team. Other names you may or not be familiar with also include Medusa (Queen of the Inhumans), Rogue (of X-Men fame) and Nico Minoru (from the Runaways) have all been on the roster.

The MCU has already touched upon the concept of the A-Force already within its most recent box-office giant, Avengers: Endgame. When Captain Marvel provides assistance to the heroes in their last-ditch effort to dispose of the gauntlet, the women of the universe band together to help her clear a path. This of course saw the film versions of Gamora, Wasp, Wanda, Pepper Potts, Valkyrie, Mantis, Okoye and Shuri stand behind Captain Marvel in a uniquely empowering scene.

With Disney+ set to introduce She-Hulk, the A-Force could even follow suit and happen as a mini series similar Falcon and the Winter Soldier or WandaVision.

As of now, the idea is merely in the discussion stage at Marvel Studios, but don’t be surprised if it comes to fruition. ■

MGM holds preliminary talks to sell properties

The studio will be the next one looking to get rid of their assets.

The studio has sought potentially interested companies in purchasing their assets which contain one of the biggest franchises in film history.

The film studio MGM (Metro Goldwyn Mayer) has sat down with interested buyers for their film assets which includes the James Bond catalog.

The two biggest interested parties are Apple and Netflix. The outcome of either one would lead to an interesting future for franchises like Bond where any subsequent instalments in the franchise could lead to streaming-only content.

Apple’s new streaming service launched with very little hype, at least in comparison to its recent competitor in Disney+, but adding something like James Bond to it could draw some subscribers, especially if any future movies, or series, are kept exclusively to Apple TV+.

Should either of these companies move ahead with the acquisition, it will also lend to a shift to the ‘big six’ of media companies, which include; Disney, Netflix, Amazon, Comcast, AT&T and Apple.

Aside from Bond, one of the other large properties coming with an MGM acquisition includes The Handmaid’s Tale which has been a popular show on Hulu for the past couple of years.

No finalized buys have been singled out. ■

Carol Danvers’ sequel has officially been greenlit at Marvel Studios and is aiming for a 2022 release.

Debuting twice in a small window of March – May 2019, Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) thundered into the MCU and became an icon for young women everywhere. Now, in a world post-Avengers: Endgame, Marvel Studios is moving ahead with a sequel for 2022.

Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, however, are not expected to return. Marvel is still looking to keep the female eye for the director’s chair but no frontrunners have been announced. Boden and Fleck will remain with Marvel Studios in some capacity, and are rumoured to be discussing an upcoming Disney+ property.

The film is expected to take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame despite the mild cliffhanger teased in the first film which hinted at a long-running war between Carol and Ronan The Accuser.

The sequel will be written by WandaVision scribe Magen McDonnell.

Captain Marvel 2 will come to theatres in 2022. ■

‘Clone Wars’ trailer drops ahead of final season

The anticipation builds for a finale.

Get ready to fly back to a time in that galaxy far, far away you haven’t visited in six years.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is returning for one more highly-anticipated seventh season and a trailer released on Wednesday has this galaxy buzzing with excitement.

It will of course release on Disney+, the streaming home of all Star Wars. Though in the past six months alone we got our first Star Wars live action TV series with The Mandalorian, the final film of the 40-year Skywalker Saga and a new video game with Fallen Order, fans are hungry for more.

There will be 12 episodes to bring an end to the iconic series with weekly releases starting on Feb. 21, a Friday.

Showrunner Dave Filoni returns to direct the new Clone Wars episodes, continuing the storylines introduced in the original series and exploring the events leading up to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.

Featured heavily in the trailer are fan favourite characters from the series and Star Wars universe as a whole. Anakin Skywalker, Ashoka Tano, Captain Rex, Darth Maul, Yoda and others are back for what appears to be a wild ride to the end.

The series ran for six seasons between 2008 and 2014 but it was cancelled when Disney purchased Star Wars from George Lucas, ending the much-beloved show without giving Filoni and his team a chance to properly bring it to a conclusion.

But now the director who was behind Star Wars: Rebels and played a big part in The Mandalorian is back to give The Clone Wars what it has always needed: a proper finish. ■
