Jake Gyllenhaal to Lead ‘Prophet’ Adaptation
Jake Gyllenhaal has his hands full. In addition to being the lead of the upcoming Oblivion Song film, we learned this week that he’ll be working with Extraction director Sam Hargrave to bring Rob Leifeld’s Prophet to live-action. Prophet is sort of a Captain America analogue from Image Comics and what’ll be most interesting here is to see if the character will have feet.
Ultron Bots and the Illuminati
A juicy rumor popped up this week that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness would feature some Ultron bots from another reality. It was quickly followed up by the appearance of some leaked concept art that furthers the speculation that the film will feature a version of the Illuminati and that Charles Xavier will be a part of that group. We know Marvel Studios was, at one point, developing an Illuminati series for Disney Plus so they are eager to introduce the group so maybe this is our introduction to the secret society.
James Gunn Back for More DC Action
James Gunn’s move to DC has been fruitful for both parties. Fans and critics loved The Suicide Squad and Gunn spun a Peacemaker series, set to debut in January, out of that film. Now the director says he’s got another project in the pipeline, though he’s not tipping his hand just yet. Certainly it’s not Krypto…
Agatha Harkness Spinoff Headed to Disney Plus
Most fans knew it was Agatha all along way before the song hit but the reveal that Kathryn Hahn’s character was a 300+ year old power stealing witch was still done well and left a lot of gaps to be filled in. Now Marvel Studios might be able to fill in those gaps in a new Agatha-centric series in development for Disney Plus.
A new rumor suggests that Star Wars fans will be reuniting with an old friend next May (May 4th is a Wednesday, afterall) when the streaming series Obi-Wan Kenobi debuts. Previous rumors had it in March (?) but a release on May the Fourth Be With You Day is pretty sweet!
