TV/Streaming


The Flash
Grant Gustin revealed on Michael Rosenbaum’s podcast that discussions had begun for season 8 and 9 renewal before the shut down.

The Terror
Renewed for a third season. No reveal on the premise for the season yet though.

The Boys
ALSO renewed for a third season. They are really confident in this show.

Spawn
Sam and Twitch live action series in the works according to McFarlane. Kevin Smith wrote the spec script for the pilot, and it is being shopped out to networks and streamers now.


Movies


Universal
AMC and now Cineworld (Parent Company of Regal Cinemas) have stated that they will not be showing any movies from Universal Studios. The announcement comes after Universal has made known their plans to continue same day VOD releases as the theatrical releases of all their movies going forward.

Spy VS Spy
Rawson Marshall Thurber (Red Notice) is in talks with Imagine Entertainment to direct a Spy VS Spy movie. Also set to have Ron Howard and Brian Glazer produce.

Spider-Man 3
Charlie Cox is squashing rumors about Daredevil appearing in the movie. At least his version of the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen.

Transformers
Josh Cooley (Toy Story 4) is set to direct an animated theatrical prequel Transformers movie. Presumably, a prequel to the original cartoon story, NOT the Michael Bay-verse. The script for the movie was penned by Ant-Man and the Wasp writers Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari. 

The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon
Christy Hall, I Am Not Okay With This co-creator, has been brought in by Village Roadshow to pen the movie adaptation. 

Keanu Reeves
Matrix 4 and John Wick 4 no longer have the same release date. Due to the corona shut-down, filming schedules have been all messed up, so Matrix’s filming schedule has forced John Wick’s schedule to be pushed too far back to maintain the same release date. Matrix is still, it seems, set for the May 21, 2021 date, with John Wick May 22, 2022.

Spawn
90 minute animated movie in the works. McFarlane says the animation is in the works currently, then likely it is just a matter of finding a studio to distribute it.

Hercules
The Russos are officially producing, no word on the director. They are said to be “too busy” to direct, which will likely feed more rumors about WHY they are so busy.

Rumor Mill


Ultimatum
Is it the Jeph Loeb story line, or is it just the inclusion of the Underground Liberated Totally Integrated Mobile Army To Unite Mankind? There seem to be rumors for both. Though the more likely is the Mobile Army. Would be interesting to see Dr. Doom and Magneto go against one another.

Namor
Namor is being rumored to be the next sizable event in the MCU, though not a Thanos level threat. Said to be in Eternals, Dr Strange 2, AND Black Panther 2.

The Flash
Re-casting a character and it isn’t who you think. Rumor is that they have listed a casting call for the character of Iris. It sounds like Kiersey Clemons could still retain the role, but she is going to have to fight for it.

Deadpool4
Disney is reportedly in the planning phase right now that has brought them to the FOURTH iteration of the Merc with a Mouth, and for this one they want a team-up movie with Spidey. 

Ghost Rider
Now rumored to be not only starring Keanu Reeves as Johnny Blaze, but also into the pre-production part of the game.

Zack Snyder
WB is rumored to be letting him back into the DCEU. But just for one film, and only if it is a “Black Label” style movie.

Guardians Vol 3
Harrison Ford is apparently being eyed for a villainous role in the movie.
