Thor: Love & Thunder teases some new updates for New Asgard. Dwayne Johnson shares a few behind-the-scenes looks at Black Adam. Plus, what’s to come on Legends of Tomorrow, more footage from Cruella, and Netflix shares a glimpse at its latest Scandanavian genre acquisition, Katla. Spoilers, away!
Deadline reports screenwriter Anthony McCarten and his Muse of Fire Productions will team with SB Projects and Compelling Pictures on Phantom — “a music-filled, big scale, contemporary psychological thriller” based on Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera. Said to be “in the vein of Black Swan and Misery” the project is “set in London’s contemporary music scene” yet intends to “upend the romanticism associated with previous interpretations and instead lean into the suspense and horror that was a big part of the book.”

Last Night in Soho
A ten-second teaser for Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho continues to reveal absolutely nothing about it.
Meanwhile, the latest Cruella featurette tries to sell you its ‘70s-inspired soundtrack — coming soon from Walt Disney Records, of course.
A Classic Horror Story
Netflix has also released a ghoulish teaser for A Classic Horror Story — a film described as “the Italian Midsommar meets Texas Chain Saw Massacre.”
In conversation with Entertainment Weekly, Kevin Feige revealed Loki will meet alternate versions of himself from separate timelines in his new Disney+ series.
Part of the fun of the multiverse and playing with time is seeing other versions of characters, and other versions of the titular character in particular. He’s been around for thousands of years. He had all sorts of adventures. Wanting to fill in the blanks and see much more of Loki’s story [was] the initial desire [for the series].
We also have a new trailer in which Mobius tells Loki to “start taking things seriously.”
Loki/Luca/The Mysterious Benedict Society
Speaking of, a new Disney+ trailer contains footage from Loki, Pixar’s Luca, and The Mysterious Benedict Society.
