Loki, Scarlet Witch, Other Marvel Heroes to Get Own Series on Disney Streaming Service, Maybe?

Disney is enlisting Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as the company prepares to launch its upcoming streaming service. The entertainment giant is in early development on an ambitious plan for a number of limited series centered on popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These series will likely include shows centered on Loki and the Scarlet Witch, along with other beloved superheroes who have yet to appear in their own standalone movies.

Marvel and Disney had no comment.

Okay so that top part is a copy and paste from the article from Variety. See I am honest about where is got it from. But the thing that has me wondering is Marvel and Disney had no comment. The rest of the article goes on about the streaming service and cost of this and that but nothing to really confirm the story.

I am hoping that this all true and in a few days we will see confirmation from Disney and Marvel. If they plan on using the original actors from the movies to also do the TV series well take my money. But take what you read with a grain of salt. Even Variety may get it wrong.

Joaquin Phoenix as The Joker

So there you go folks this is the first image from director Todd Phillips upcoming, as-yet-untitled Joker origin film. The photo is of Joaquin Phoenix before he becomes the Joker.

The caption on the picture simple says “Arthur”. The film is an “exploration of a man disregarded by society that is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.” Scott Silver co-wrote the script with Phillips.

According to Variety, Robert De Niro is reported to be in talks to be joining the film. De Niro is reported to be playing a talk show host that help in driving “Arthur” mad and become the Joker. The movie also stars Zazie Beetz and Marc Maron.

Warner Bros. is stressing that the film is a stand alone movie and will not effect its DCU. Jared Leto is working on an stand alone film that will be connected to the DCU.

In August Joaquin was qoutoed saying to IndieWire, “”I don’t really think that much about what people think, “Who cares, who cares?”

That is fine Joaquin. I am one of a few that don’t care about your version of The Joker. It is not that I think your performance will be any good. The reason is simply that I like my Joker mysterious. Not knowing who The Joker is one of the many things that make The Joker the most interesting and scary characters created.

Movie Monday:

 

“White Lily” by Tristan Ofield A tense spaceship captain and co-pilot set out to investigate a comet, when a technical fault cuts to the core of their relationship problem… Leon and Isobel are nearing the critical point of a long space journey. Leon relaxes, watching a hologram of blue skies and recalling a holiday he and Isobel had – but doesn’t remember one of the features she draws attention to, a vase with a white lily. The purpose of their expedition is to investigate a comet. Perhaps because of his fractiousness, Leon sets a flight path that Isobel considers dangerous, and the ship is damaged in the process of its exploration. Buoyed by the success of their trip, Leon and Isobel discuss what they’ll do when they return to Earth. Isobel gets a word wrong, and it becomes apparent there’s something is amiss – she is a holographic companion for Leon, based on the persona of a former lover, and is suffering from the same fault as the ship’s other systems. Isobel insists that Leon reboot her, but he is reluctant to do so since it will wipe her out. Their relationship is what’s keeping him together, and for Isobel it’s one that’s based on someone else’s memories. Isobel insists on the reboot, and Leon reminisces about the ‘real’ Isobel, for once addressing the hologram as if it’s her. These are their last moments together. Then the reboot is completed and the holographic companion that was Isobel asks Leon in a blank computerized voice what he wants to call her. Leon prepares for a very long and very lonely trip back to Earth.
