Rumor Mill

Feige Star Wars
Chris Hemsworth is the most recent MCU star to be rumored to be connected to Feige’s Star Wars movie.

Rian Johnson Star Wars
Rumored to be STILL in the works. Johnson himself assured us all along, but there have been multiple rumors to the contrary, now there are rumors to backup Johnson. Claiming that the trilogy is still in the early stages of development, and will not come out for some time, but it WILL in fact see the light of day.

The next time we will see the Merc With the Mouth is in Spider-Man 5 and 6…
As for the actual Deadpool 3 movie, there is another rumor surfacing that Feige is looking to employ Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely to pen the script.
Perhaps to keep Ryan Reynolds on the hook, Disney is ALSO rumored to be planning 3 MORE Deadpool movies.

Rumors are now going beyond the introduction of the organization, and their subsequent leader Abigail Brand, and they are now talking about the heroes that S.W.O.R.D will be partnering with. The first on the list is Spider-Man, if the rumors are true.

Alpha Flight
Rumors based on rumors. Now there is a rumor that the Hulk VS Wolverine movie will debut Alpha Flight. Then the team will get their own series on Disney+

Dr Doom
Rumor has it that Lucia von Bardas, who succeeded Victor as head of State in Latveria in the comics, will be introduced before Doom in the MCU. Possibly in a switching of roles from the comics, with Doom taking power after von Bardas.

There are multiple rumors about MCU actors going over to the DCEU and vice versa.
The Rock getting an ORIGINAL character in the MCU.
WB courting Brie Larson with options for “many roles,” Lady Blackhawk, Zatanna, Hawkwoman and Big Barda
Tom Holland being eyed to play Tim Drake

The Thomas Wayne Batman is rumored to be a lock for the movie. Now, there are also rumors saying that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is in early negotiations to play the role.
And OTHER rumors saying it is going to Michael Keaton…
AND THEN OTHER rumors have Keaton possibly returning in MULTIPLE Batman movies in some sort of mentor-type role, with Batgirl being on the table. Batman: Beyond anyone?
