Marvel TV Is Being Shut Down, 90% Of Staff To Be Laid Off

There might be a ton of very powerful superheroes in the McU, but perhaps none more so than the guy who makes all of the decisions behind the scenes.

Yes, Kevin Feige is the man with the plan over at Marvel Studios and was recently promoted to Chief Creative Officer, which means he’ll now be in charge of everything pertaining to the company. So, instead of just overseeing the House of Ideas’ live-action movies, he’ll also run the television, film and comic book departments, among others. This seemingly spelled the end of Marvel Television as we know it and today, Deadline has confirmed that that’s indeed the case.

According to the outlet, the TV division will now be phased out. Projects currently in production will continue but “any further development is being scrapped,” which means that 90% of the staff will also be laid off. As Deadline explains,

Marvel TV to Cut Staff, End Future Development as Unit Moves Under Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios

Marvel TV to Cut Staff, End Future Development as Unit Moves Under Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios
Marvel TV is winding down. Two months after the division was moved under Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios, the TV-arm of Marvel is ending all of its development plans.

Marvel TV will complete all of its projects that are currently in development, which include the final season of ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” that will air next summer, but will not continue beyond that. Those also include the four animated series that are currently in development at Hulu, as well as the live-action “Helstrom.”

The integration of Marvel TV under Marvel Studios will include layoffs as a result, both in the immediate future and long term, once development on all current Marvel TV shows is completed. The move effectively shutters the division as it will be absorbed by Marvel Studios — though the Marvel TV name may still continue.

Avengers 4 Script Reveals Old Cap's Age and Year He Returned to Peggy
Captain America's true age at the conclusion of Avengers: Endgame has been revealed. In addition, the year he went back to Peggy Carter has also been confirmed. This information has been talked about before, but it appears it was inaccurate, at least when compared with the official script from the epic movie. After Tony Stark made the ultimate sacrifice to get rid of Thanos and his army, Cap went back in time to return the Infinity Stones and live out the rest of his life the way he always wanted to.

The Avengers: Endgame script reveals Captain America traveled back to Washington D.C. in the year 1949 to be with Peggy Carter after he took back the Infinity Stones. When he appears with Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson at the end of the movie, which takes place in 2023, he is actually 112-years old. This clears up some misinformation about Steve

Netflix reveals placeholder and 2021 release date for Magic: The Gathering animated series

Joe and Anthony Russo announced in June that their idea of taking a break from superheroes is by delving into sorcery to undertake an adaptation of the timeless trading card game Magic: The Gathering. The Netflix team are so pumped to showcase The Russos’ animated vision of rival wizards and mystic adventure that they’ve created a teasing placeholder complete with the production’s release year.

Said placeholder appears when you search “Magic: The Gathering” on your loyal streaming platform and reveals the title and following description: “ Executive producers the Russo Brothers team with lead writers Henry Gilroy and Jose Molina, telling an animated new story of the magic-wielding Planeswalkers.”.

With Gilroy and Molina – who have a slew of superhero and primetime television productions under their belts – the Russos have selected the best of the best to combine their talents and appetite for the fantastical. Molina’s darker and more

Next 2 Mission: Impossible Sequels Recruit Marvel Star Pom Klementieff
The cast for the next two Mission: Impossible movies has just added some star power. Pom Klementieff, best known for her role as Mantis in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, has been tapped for a role in both Mission: Impossible 7 and Mission: Impossible 8. We learned earlier this year that Paramount Pictures had locked down a deal with both star Tom Cruise and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie to shoot both installments back-to-back. Now, Klementieff is poised to get in on the action.

Christopher McQuarrie made the announcement personally on social media, sharing the same post on both Twitter and Instagram about his upcoming Mission: Impossible 7 and the back-to-back sequel Mission: Impossible 8. The filmmaker shared a photo of Klementieff and made it clear that she's been welcomed into the fold of the highly-successful action franchise. McQuarrie had this to say in his caption.

Specifically, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madess.

In short, it's all connected.

Disney+ launches next week and it will be home to a host of McU shows that will connect more directly to the movies. Loki is just one of them that is in the works alongside The Falcon and The Winter Solider, Hawkeye, WandaVision and What If? amongst others. During a recent interview, Kevin Feige was asked if Tom Hiddleston's Loki show will tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Jeph Loeb to Exit as Head of Marvel Television
Jeph Loeb will exit as head of Marvel Television, an individual with knowledge confirmed to TheWrap. This follows the division’s move under Marvel Studios and its chief, Kevin Feige, who was named chief creative officer for Marvel last Tuesday.

Loeb, whose exit has been in the works for some time, will leave in the coming weeks, the individual said. Marvel declined to comment.

Feige, the architect of the hugely-popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, was put in charge of content creation across all of Marvel’s mediums last week, including publishing and animation. In addition to Marvel TV, Marvel Family Entertainment is also moving under Feige and Marvel Studios, which is under Disney co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergman.

Former McU Star Being Eyed For Mad Hatter In The Batman

After months of speculation, more and more casting news revolving around The Batman is starting to roll in. We already know that Robert Pattinson will be portraying the titular superhero alongside Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman and Jeffrey Wright’s Commissioner Jim Gordon. It’s also recently been reported that, in the absence of Jonah Hill, Paul Dano will now be taking on the role of the Riddler. As Matt Reeves continues to add big names to his upcoming project though, there’s another interesting one that might be playing one of the Dark Knight’s creepiest foes.

According to our sources – the same ones who told us about Hill’s involvement back in August, and who informed us that Mahershala Ali was going to play Gordon before he dropped out, which has since been confirmed – former McU star Toby Jones is currently being eyed by Warner Bros. to play Mad Hatter.

Marvel TV Officially Dead As Kevin Feige’s Named Chief Creative Officer

There are plenty of powerful superheroes in the McU, but perhaps none more so than the man who makes all of the decisions off the screen.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has just been promoted to Chief Creative Officer, overseeing basically everything pertaining to the company. Instead of just heading up the House of Ideas’ live-action movies, he’ll now be in charge of television, film, comic books and more. This unfortunately spells the end of Marvel Television as we know it.

The relatively new division of the massive Disney conglomerate has been failing to capture the success of its extremely successful cinematic counterpart for a while now. Shows like Legion, The Gifted, Agent Carter, Iron Fist and Inhumans weren’t able to attract enough viewers to justify lengthy runs and even highly-anticipated series like Luke Cage, The Punisher and Jessica Jones ended much sooner than fans expected.

Dominic Cooper Doesn’t Know Why He Wasn’t In Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame featured a major moment for Tony Stark’s character arc when he got to travel to the past and share a heart-to-heart with his late father Howard. It was a moving scene, but it begs the question: why did Marvel go to the trouble of de-aging John Slattery when they could’ve just rehired Dominic Cooper, who’s already played the young Howard Stark in Captain America: The First Avenger and Agent Carter?

Cooper himself was asked this by MTV NewsJosh Horowitz over the summer but didn’t have a good answer. “I don’t know why I wasn’t in it,” he said. The British actor went on to half-admit that he hadn’t actually seen Endgame yet before backtracking on his statement, joking: “I’m trying to get employed by them again, please.”

Marvel’s TV Division May Very Well Be Finished

As I begin typing this story, I’m immediately reminded of the importance of reading entire articles, and not just the headlines. Mark my words: social media links for this will be flamed with comments reminding us of how the Disney Plus shows are on the way, but those aren’t exactly what we’re here to to discuss.

To be clear, we’re talking about the TV division at Marvel that’s brought us shows such as Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter and Legion, not to mention popular Netflix series like Daredevil, Luke Cage and Jessica Jones. Marvel Studios, who produces the movies, is handling the Disney Plus offerings like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, etc. These two houses have historically not gotten along, thereby serving as the jumping point for today’s news.

As Marvel Studios Moves Into Series, TV Unit’s Focus Is Unclear

  • Variety
As Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige builds out his own TV universe spawned from the “Avengers” films, Marvel’s dedicated television unit is seeing its live-action world contract.

Feige’s division — part of the Walt Disney Studios feature-film operation — is currently working on multiple shows for the nascent streamer Disney Plus centered on Marvel Cinematic Universe characters like Falcon and Winter Soldier, as well as Loki, and Vision and Scarlet Witch, with shows based on She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moon Knight also in the works. Meanwhile, with Hulu having this week killed a planned series based on the character Ghost Rider, Marvel Television — the division of Marvel Entertainment responsible for the comic-book publisher’s initial push into live-action TV under Disney ownership — now has few announced live-action projects on the air or in the works.

Disney Plus Refusing To Accept Previous Marvel Shows As McU Canon

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (McU) has done a brilliant job on the big screen of constructing a shared mythology, avoiding the pitfalls suffered by many similar franchises in over-complicating the world-building. Each installment adheres to the rules and various timelines of the McU, ensuring that the extended universe never becomes too bogged down or ends up tying itself in knots trying to overcome plot holes.

One of the major debates among fans though has been whether or not the multiple TV shows that bear the Marvel brand are officially considered canon. After all, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter were pretty explicitly based in the same universe as the movies, and even featured several supporting characters in either lead, cameo or supporting roles, while the recently-canceled Netflix shows made frequent veiled references to events that had happened in the movies that directly affected New York.

However, those that were recently

5 Best Episodes Of Agent Carter (And 5 Worst)

When Marvel announced an Agent Carter series, fans were delighted to spend more time with Peggy Carter. As o-ne of the first women to get involved in the action within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Peggy had a lot of fans.

Unfortunately, fans found themselves disappointed when ABC axed her series after two seasons. Those two seasons only had eighteen total episodes, less than even one season for the average network series. Of those 18, most are stellar, but they can’t all be perfect.

‘Hawkeye’: Hailee Steinfeld Receives Offer For Lead Role in Disney+ Series — Report
Hailee Steinfeld could become an Avenger: Variety has reported that Steinfeld received an offer for a lead role in “Hawkeye,” the new Disney+ series slated for a late 2021 release. If negotiations are worked out, Steinfeld would portray Kate Bishop, who succeeds the original Hawkeye and joins the Young Avengers superhero team.

This would mark her second starring role in a television series, after the upcoming Apple TV+ “Dickinson” series, an alt-history show about 19th century poet Emily Dickinson. Outside television, Steinfeld is prolific in the film industry. She has starred in well-received films, including “The Edge of Seventeen” in 2016 and last year’s “Bumblebee,” both after earning an Oscar nomination for her work in the Coen Brothers’ adaptation of “True Grit.” Steinfeld isn’t a stranger to Marvel properties either, as she did voice work for Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman in 2018’s acclaimed “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.”

Netflix Drops ‘Criminal’ Full Franchise Trailer (Exclusive)

Just over two weeks before its Sept. 20 global launch, Netflix has dropped its first full franchise trailer of “Criminal,” a 12-episode, four-part police interrogation anthology which reworks the procedural format taking it to a new European level, while focusing on what episodic drama is often held to disdain: Character and actors’ performance.

Netflix has already teased the crime thriller’s best-of-their class European key cast. Others trailers have targeted the individual countries where “Criminal” episodes are set – U.K., Spain, France and Germany – three in each country.

Wednesday’s trailer is, however, the first full-franchise reveal of action across the series, hinting at some of the its major fascinations, innovations and character details.
