The interstellar, alien settings of Captain Marvel’s story are going to require quite few impressive visual effects to pull off, but a lot of the work that’s going into the movie is focused on de-ageing Samuel L.

After years of fighting more modernised versions of his rogues’ gallery, Spider-Man is finally getting the chance to fight a villain who, at least visually, is going to be every bit as campy and downright weird on the big screen as Stan Lee and Steve Ditko originally envisioned him in Marvel’s comic back in the mid-‘70s. Mysterio’s coming to Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Ever since we learned that Carol’s debut film would see her crash land into the ‘90s, we’ve been wondering just how she’d find herself thrust into the modern world of the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well, Samuel L. Jackson might have teased a way for Carol to do it.
When Disney first announced its plans to launch a streaming service of its own where new, live-action series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe would begin airing in the near future, the writing was all but on the wall for Netflix’s MCU shows. So it shouldn’t have been too surprising when Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage were summarily canceled one by one.
Because the original run of Marvel Comics’ Runaways was relatively short compared to many other series, Joshua Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the co-creators of Hulu’s live-action adaptation, have been very deliberate about not rushing through the show’s plot in favour of taking time to build out its characters and the world they exist in.

The teen heroes of Hulu’s Runaways spent an entire season working up the nerve to put their money where the show’s mouth is and actually run away. But the time that was put into actually fleshing out their characters was something the show’s co-creators Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage wanted to take in order to make the second season sing.
Last week, in the wake of Netflix’s recent decision to cancel both Daredevil and Iron Fist (not to mention Luke Cage) just when both series seemed to be hitting their respective strides, a big fuss was made over a report that Daredevil was also the fourth-most popular series on the platform when it began streaming, something that made Netflix’s move seem particularly odd in retrospect.
