When it was announced that Marvel Studios would be releasing a number of TV series on Disney’s new streaming service Disney+ it was implied that they would connect to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, more so than the previous Marvel TV series. That theory was proven to be true when it was announced that WandaVision would be connected toDoctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
But that isn’t the only show to tie into the Doctor Strange sequel. Now it has been confirmed that Loki will be connected as well. More on the report below.
This is just a conversation that will not end. Ever since Martin Scorsese claimed that superhero films aren’t cinema, everyone has shared their opinions on the matter. Scorsese even doubled down at one point in time, while Francis Ford Coppolaechoed his sentiments.
However, there are those who have defended superhero films, like James Gunn, Kevin Smith, and Jon Favreau. Even Disney CEO Bob Igerspoke out against Scorsese’s comments. But one person we had yet to hear from is Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer, Kevin Feige. The man who has been a part of the studio since the very beginning is finally sharing his thoughts about Scorsese’s opinions on Marvel films. Naturally, he disagreed and thinks that it is “unfortunate” that Scorsese, who has been behind films like Goodfellas, Casino, and The Irishman, feels that way about their films.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, the man who brought us from Iron Man all the way to Avengers: Endgame, has received a major promotion.
New reports confirm that he will be moved up the ladder all the way to Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment. This means that he will oversee the company’s film, television, and publishing titles. That’s quite a lot of responsibility, especially when he’s got some other projects across the Disney office.

Though it started to look like Spider-Man would be going back to Sony after their partnership with Disney came to a crashing end, a surprising deal was able to save the webslinger from the corporate snap that would have dusted the character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Though both parties agreed on new terms, it was who brought them together that made it all happen. According to new reports, it was Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home star Tom Holland‘s last-minute heroics that were able to save Spidey from being lost to the MCU. More on the report below.
Oh how things can quickly change. Back in August, just days before the D23 Expo was supposed to start, Sony had announced that Spider-Man would no longer be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, citing Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige’s growing responsibilities at Disney+. The move was shocking to say the least and was met with an uproar from fans who believed that Sony needed Feige’s help.
Now it looks like Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man will websling in the MCU once again thanks to a last-minute deal that was signed between Disney and Sony. More on the report here below.
