‘Captain Marvel 2’ officially in development

Published

on

© DigitalSpy

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.

Published

Marketing material via Lucasfilm.

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. ■

‘Better Call Saul’ to end with Season 6

The criminal lawyer will end on his sixth season.

Published

Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad prequel series from creator Vince Gilligan will come to a close after two more seasons.

AMC’s favourite criminal lawyer will no longer be in business very soon. Deadline has confirmed that it was renewed for a sixth and final season. This news comes just weeks away from the premiere of the fifth season.

Better Call Saul developed as a spin-off/prequel series focusing on James McGill, a small-time lawyer being overshadowed by his brother.

After a number of trials and tribulations that test his will and desire to remain as a law practitioner, McGill eventually coins the name Saul Goodman and begins dabbling in criminal law.

The spin-off series has yet to bring in fan favourites like Walter White (Bryan Cranston) or Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), however supporting characters like Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) and Gustavo Fring (Giancarlo Esposito) have had their characters expanded upon.

The finale to season 4 saw McGill begin to embrace his criminal side, and a recent teaser for the fifth season heavily hints at him pledging himself to act as a lawyer for those who don’t necessarily deserve it.

Season five of Better Call Saul premieres on Feb. 23, 2020 on AMC. ■
