Disney Channel Greenlights ‘Marvel’s Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur’

Disney Channel has ordered “Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur,” an original animated series based on Marvel’s hit comic books, from Disney Television Animation. 

Executive produced by Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions (ABC’s “black-ish”), Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, and Emmy Award-winner Steve Loter (Disney’s “Kim Possible”), the series follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her ten-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur. After Lunella accidentally brings Devil Dinosaur into present-day New York City via a time vortex, the duo works together to protect the city’s Lower East Side from danger.

 The news was announced today by Laurence Fishburne during Disney Television Animation’s panel at Disney’s D23 Expo. Fishburne said, “As an avid comic book fan, I am thrilled to be involved with ‘Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.’ Disney Channel is the perfect platform to explore this pint-sized female African American superhero and I can’t wait for their audience to enjoy the lighthearted adventures of Lunella and Devil Dinosaur.”

Black Panther 2 To Be Released On May 6, 2022

Straight from Hall D23 at D23 Expo 2019, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and filmmaker Ryan Coogler officially confirmed that Black Panther 2 is on the way! The Black Panther 2 release date was officially revealed as well with the sequel set to drop on May 6, 2020.

Feige confirmed that a treatment had been turned in by Coogler for the sequel, but details about plot or an official title were not given.

The first Black Panther arrived in February of 2018, but given the success of the sequel it makes sense for Marvel to position it in May instead. Despite a billion dollar haul in February, the sequel will fair just as well in the early summer slot.

Black Panther starred Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, with Academy Award nominee Angela Bassett, with Academy Award winner Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis. Ryan Coogler directed the film and is on board to return for the sequel.

The global cultural phenomenon of Black Panther debuted in 2018 to the tune of $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office and became the first Marvel Studios movie to win an Academy Award, taking home three of the coveted prizes.

Taschen To Publish The Stan Lee Story XXL Edition

First published as a signed Collector’s Edition and sold out within a week, this is an unparalleled account of the life and times of Stan Lee, written and edited with the Godfather of comics himself. His tale is told by Roy Thomas, who brings “you are there” insights to Lee’s journey alongside never-before-seen photographs, original comic art, and rare comicbook facsimiles—a tribute worthy of the Man.

Now available as an unlimited XXL edition, this is the big one, True Believers! The mostly true tale of Stan Lee: a Giant-Size extravaganza, nearly ten years in the making, about the one and only Godfather of Comics. From his childhood in Depression-era New York, to transforming Marvel into the number one comics publisher in the world, to his 21st-century reinvention as Chief Creative Officer of global entertainment company POW! Entertainment, Stan “the Man” Lee stands the test of time as the most legendary name in comicbook history.

Stanley Lieber began working at Timely Comics in 1940 at the age of 17 and found himself at the helm of the bullpen as its top editor just two years later. But it wasn’t until 1961 that he ignited a revolution known as the “Marvel Age of Comics.” With a legendary stable of art partners including Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, John Romita, and Jim Steranko, Lee unleashed a dizzying cascade of seminal comicbook creations—the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man, the X-Men, and the Avengers to name a few. After moving to Hollywood in 1980, he did it again, developing TV and film projects that laid the groundwork for the “Marvel movie.” Stan’s constant cameo presence in these billion-dollar worldwide events is a testament to his influence. As the man behind POW! Entertainment, he became a master of all media—working with rock stars and professional sports leagues, movie mavens and reality TV shows—reinforcing his creative stature the world over.

The book was written and edited with Lee’s full cooperation. His tale is told by his successor at Marvel, renowned comics writer, editor, and historian Roy Thomas, who brings “you are there” insights and wide-eyed clarity to key moments of Lee’s journey to pop culture immortality. Featuring hundreds of treasures of comic book art, intimate photographs sourced straight from his family archives, a foreword written by Lee himself, a novel-length essay and new epilogue by Thomas, and an appendix with complete reprints of Stan’s comics from throughout the decades, this is a titanic tribute worthy of the Man.

The Stan Lee Story XXL Edition measures a whopping 11.5 x 17.2 in. and includes 624 pages. The book will be published in the summer of 2019 and you can pre-order it HERE for $200.

Petition For A Stan Lee Memorial Statue In New York City

Stan Lee is one of the most beloved figures in the comic book world known for revolutionizing the industry in the 1960s, when he created the mythic figures that are still inspiring new generations to flock to the cinema. Lee’s creations – Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, most of the Avengers (Hulk, Iron Man, Thor), Daredevil and Doctor Strange – helped to rescue the costumed superhero from obscurity and to usher in the silver age of American comic books.

When Lee passed away last November, a small group of fans came together to campaign online in an attempt to get the City of New York to commission a memorial statue for the late publisher and it seems now that a petition for the proposed monument is gaining a lot of steam on the internet.

The group of fans created the petition on Change.org in hopes of getting the attention of some of New York City’s most prominent figures, capable of erecting the statue. Fans chose the famous city for the memorial statue as it was the original home of Lee, where he was born in December 1922. Lee lived in New York City with his wife Joan until they moved to Los Angeles in the early 1980s.

Chick HERE to sign a petition for Marvel Legend Stanley Martin Lieber (Stan Lee) to get a statue in his hometown of Manhattan, New York City, NY, to forever immortalize and honor his amazing legacy.

Captain Marvel To Be Released On Digital May 28 & Blu-ray On June 11

Marvel Studios officially announcing the release dates for Captain Marvel’s Blu-ray and digital versions.

The film is scheduled to be released on May 28 on digital platforms and on Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD and DVD on June 11. It will feature a lot of bonus footage including The Origin of Nick Fury, extended scenes, deleted scenes, gag reel and many more.

Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set more than a decade prior to the events in 2008’s Iron Man, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The film also starred Samuel L. Jackson, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, with Annette Bening, and Jude Law. Reprising their roles from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy are Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace, and returning once again to a Marvel Studios film will be Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson.

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel is directed by the writing/directing team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, whose credits include Mississippi Grind and Half Nelson. An all-star collective of accomplished writers penned the screenplay, including Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (GLOW) and Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck.

There Are 6 Marvel Movies In The Works After ‘Avengers: Endgame’ — Here Are The Details

“Avengers: Endgame” is currently breaking records at the box office and “Spider-Man: Far From Home” comes to theaters in July. Beyond that, details about the MCU’s future are scarce, but Marvel Studios will make official announcements later this year.

But we do know that Marvel Studios has eight release dates for yet-to-be-titled movies from 2020 to 2022, and we know what some of those movies could be.

The release dates are May 1 and November 6, 2020; February 12, May 7, and November 5, 2021; and February 18, May 6, and July 29, 2022. (A July 2020 release date was cut from the schedule last year.)

Disney, which owns Marvel, closed its merger with Fox last month, and now owns the film rights to Fox’s Marvel characters, including the X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four. It’s unclear how Marvel Studios would use these characters — Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, was not approved to develop projects for them until after the merger— but Marvel still has other movies in the works that could fill those release dates.

In a stunning move, Disney last month rehired James Gunn to direct “Guardians of the Galaxy 3” after firing him last year when offensive tweets resurfaced. And Marvel Studios hired the “Short Term 12” director, Destin Daniel Cretton, to direct “Shang-Chi,” starring Marvel’s first Asian superhero to lead a solo movie.

Here are six Marvel Cinematic Universe movies in the works:

“Black Panther” sequel

“Black Panther” was the highest-grossing movie at the domestic box office last year, with over $700 million, and it made over $1 billion worldwide — a sequel was inevitable. Ryan Coogler has signed on to return to write and direct it.

“Black Widow”

Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow has been an Avenger since the beginning. She debuted in 2010 in “Iron Man 2” and has since starred in every “Avengers” movie, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” and “Captain America: Civil War.”

But right when she’s getting her own movie, she gets killed off in “Avengers: Endgame.” Black Widow sacrifices herself on Vormir to retrieve the Soul Stone, so it’s likely that her solo movie will explore her backstory as a Russian assassin-turned-agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Australian filmmaker Cate Shortland will direct the movie.

“Doctor Strange” sequel

Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, has been positioned as one of the anchors of the franchise in a post-“Endgame” MCU.

The director Scott Derrickson is returning for the sequel to 2016’s hit first movie, which grossed $678 million worldwide.

“The Eternals”

Chloé Zhao, who directed “The Rider,” is directing “The Eternals,” based on the legendary creator Jack Kirby’s comic about godlike beings.

The movie is likely to push the MCU’s cosmic stories into new territory, beyond just “Guardians of the Galaxy” or, more recently, “Captain Marvel.”

“Guardians of the Galaxy 3”

In a surprising reversal, Disney last month reinstated James Gunn to direct the third “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie after firing him in July when years-old offensive tweets resurfaced.

Warner Bros. has also hired Gunn to write and direct a new “Suicide Squad” movie, which he’ll complete before Marvel Studios starts production of “Guardians of the Galaxy 3.” So it’s likely we won’t see “Guardians 3” until at least 2022.

“Endgame” sets up an interesting premise for the movie, in that Gamora (who died in “Infinity War”) is brought back to the present from the past. At the end of the movie, the Guardians, now with Thor in their ranks, are searching for Gamora.

“Shang-Chi”

Destin Daniel Cretton, who directed “Short Term 12,” will direct “Shang-Chi,” Marvel Studios’ first movie starring an Asian superhero. In the comics, he’s known as the “Master of Kung-Fu.”
