Strange, Shang-Chi, Moon & More Marvel Talk

Next Doctor Strange Is Only Kind Of Horror

A couple of Marvel-related rumors and hiring news reports have emerged today.

First up, Bleeding Cool says two more TV series are in the works for Disney+, one is based on the “Secret Invasion” comic storyline and the other deals with an “A-List character from the MCU”.

Next, The Illuminerdi says a casting call has reportedly gone out for a Hispanic teenage girl role which will serve as a sidekick of sorts to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”. This has led to speculation that Miss America Chavez will debut in the property.

“Star Trek” alum Rosalind Chao is rumored to have joined Destin Daniel Cretton’s film “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”. She is rumored to be playing the mother of Awkwafina’s mysterious character.

Beau DeMayo (“The Witcher”) has signed on to join the creative team of the Disney+ upcoming MCU series “Moon Knight”. He’ll work under Jeremy Slater (“The Umbrella Academy”) who is leading the writing team.

Noah Mills (“The Enemy Within,” “2 Broke Girls”) has joined the cast of the “Falcon and the Winter Soldier” series in an unknown role at this time.

Finally, Kumail Nanjiani tells EW that the upcoming “Eternals” is: “really, really an epic. And it’s really such a science-fiction story. It’s a superhero story, but in some ways, it’s the most sci-fi of all the Marvel movies… and the story spans thousands of years. So it’s really not like any of the other Marvel movies… it doesn’t look like any of the other Marvel movies.”
