TV
Obi-Wan: Our first taste of what to expect from the series comes from D23 of course. The series will take place at the same time as the Solo movie, which is to say, it will be bridging the prequel Trilogy and the Holy Trilogy. https://hnentertainment.co/the-kenobi-series-will-take-place-during-the-events-of-solo-a-star-wars-story/ 
Ms. Marvel: Announced, officially, at D23. Reportedly, Brie Larson MIGHT be involved somehow, as that is how it works in the comics https://hnentertainment.co/ms-marvel-disney-series-confirmed-to-be-coming-from-marvel-studios-first-logo-revealed/ 
She-Hulk: Apparently the Universal deal is growing weaker. Announced at D23. https://hnentertainment.co/shocking-news-as-she-hulk-series-from-marvel-studios-officially-coming-to-disney/ 
Moon Knight: ALSO announced at D23. This is prime testing ground for phase 5. https://hnentertainment.co/moon-knight-disney-series-from-marvel-studios-officially-announced-at-d23-expo/ 
The Simpsons: Still weird to say this, but at D23 Matt Groening confirmed that Apu is in fact staying on the show, He also said that there is potentially a spin-off show in the works, or maybe another movie… maybe both? https://comicbook.com/tv-shows/2019/08/26/the-simpsons-confirms-apu-not-leaving-show-controversy/ 
What If…?: The episode count has been revealed to be 23. Which puts one episode for EVERY MCU movie so far, including Far From Home. With the voice actors coming back to reprise their roles, what does that mean for animated Spider-Man? https://comicbook.com/marvel/2019/08/24/what-if-one-episode-every-mcu-movie/ 

Movies
Snake Eyes: Andrew Koji has been cast as Storm Shadow. Koji has been in American Gods, Fast and Furious 6, and a Cinemax series called Warrior that is apparently based on writings from Bruce Lee.
Suicide Squad: Nathan Fillion has been cast in an undisclosed role on James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad. The role of King shark is not what Fillion will be taking though, as that part goes to comedian and Guardians Vol 2 alumn Steve Agee. https://deadline.com/2019/08/suicide-squad-nathan-fillion-rookie-star-joins-cast-james-gunn-movie-1202702610/ 
Bill and Ted: Face The Music: Filming has officially wrapped, so we are just looking at reshoots and editing…  https://twitter.com/BillandTed3/status/1165365092533329920?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw 
Mortal Kombat: A bunch of new developments: Jarek and the Black/Red Dragon will be present in the movie. Though that info comes from a short script that the studio is using for auditions. Reptile will be in the movie. Apparently he and Mileena will be teaming up with Sub-Zero under the lead of Shang Tsung. Tsung will be the main antagonist of the story, and the protagonist, according to HN Entertainment, will in fact be Cole Turner. Sonya has also been cast. Jessica McNamee from The Meg will portray the character, who is going to be a vehicle for exposition according to HN Entertainment and THR. Lewis Tan (Deadpool 2) has been cast in an undisclosed role (Coler Turner perhaps?). Josh Lawson (The Campaign, Anchorman 2) has been cast to play Kano. https://hnentertainment.co/exclusive-mortal-kombat-movie-will-include-jarek-and-black-dragon/  | https://hnentertainment.co/exclusive-classic-mortal-kombat-character-reptile-expected-to-show-up-and-new-plot-details/ | https://hnentertainment.co/sonya-blade-is-indeed-part-of-the-new-mortal-kombat-movie/  | https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/mortal-kombat-movie-finds-sonya-blade-kano-1234513
