X-Men Vote 2022 Is Live

Marvel is letting fans of the "X-Men" determine part of the title's fate in the pages of the comics, as there is now a vote taking place (seen in the above Instagram post) which will allow people to pick the next member of the team. The options include Armor, Avalanche, Bling, Firestar, Gentle, Gorgon, Micromax, Penance, Siryn, and Surge. Those who are interested in making their voice heard can do so by clicking here.

Marvel's Avengers First Responder Outfits

Those of you who are still playing "Marvel's Avengers" (which is now available on Xbox Game Pass) now have some new outfits available. Specifically, as seen in the above tweet, a new series of "first responder" outfits for the game's various heroes have been revealed, giving the team a neon green makeover. Those who are interested can grab the outfits in-game now.

Peacemaker: Reflecting On Rick Flag Clip

As DC's "Peacemaker" series readies for its debut this Thursday on HBO Max, a new clip has been released online focusing on John Cena's titular character and some important events from "The Suicide Squad" that pave the way for the series. James Gunn wrote every episode of the show and directed most of them, and its first three episodes arrive at the same time this week. Be sure to check out the clip for yourself above.

The CW's Naomi Is Bringing a New Superman to the Party

The CW is bringing a new DC show to air tonight in the form of "Naomi," which is based on the comic book series of the same name and hails from Ava DuVernay ("When They See Us"). While it remains to be seen if the series will connect with the larger Arrowverse, it will certainly exist somewhere new within the larger multiverse. This has been made clear, as star Kaci Walfall has revealed that the show will be bringing a new version of Superman to the fold.

So, who is going to play this Superman if not "Superman & Lois" star Tyler Hoechlin? That is a great question that will hopefully be answered sooner rather than later in the show's first season. "Naomi" debuts tonight on The CW and will be available to stream on the network's website tomorrow.

Marvel Is Celebrating 750 Issues Of Thor

This April's "Thor" #24 from writer Donny Cates and artist Nic Klein is going to be a landmark issue for the superhero, as it will be the character's 750th solo issue in the history of Marvel Comics. As such, the issue will serve as a big celebration, with several creators from the past returning to tell new stories with the God of Thunder. The above tweet showcases some early artwork. Full details on the issue can be found by clicking here.

Shazam: Fury of the Gods Director Hilariously Rejects HBO Max Release Idea

"Shazam: Fury of the Gods" is arguably one of the most anticipated superhero sequels in the works right now, given how much of a surprise the first movie turned out to be. But DC Films has a lot coming down the pipeline, as was noted by a fan on Twitter recently. This fan kindly suggested a bit of an alteration to Warner Bros.' released strategy for some of the upcoming projects. This included shifting the sequel to HBO Max.

Returning director David F. Sandberg got wind of the suggestion and, in the replies, in his own hilarious way, let the fan know what he thought of the idea.

So, in short, expect to see "Shazam 2" in theaters in 2023, folks.

Danny Elfman Shares BTS Look At Scoring Doctor Strange 2

The legendary Danny Elfman is reuniting with director Sam Raimi for "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," after having worked together on the original "Spider-Man" trilogy. Recently, Elfman shared some behind-the-scenes photos of the work getting done on the MCU sequel.

Though not too revealing, this shows we're getting much closer to this movie becoming a reality. This is good, since "Doctor Strange" came out way back in 2016 and Benedict Cumberbatch's Stephen Strange is long overdue for another chance to take the spotlight. The movie is currently set to hit theaters in May.

James Gunn Shares Global Peacemaker Streaming Guide

It is easy to forget that not all shows are made available everywhere at the same time, and they aren't always available in the same place. Luckily, "Peacemaker" series creator James Gunn has decided to give us a handy guide (seen above) that lets fans around the world know where exactly they will be able to find the series when it drops. This is a nice touch and, to me, demonstrates how much Gunn cares about the project. The first three episodes arrive on January 13, 2022.

New Eternals Deleted Scenes and Featurette

Lastly, on the eve of "Eternals" arriving on Disney+, we have not only a couple of deleted scenes from director Chloe Zhao's MCU flick, but we also have a new featurette as well. Starting with the deleted scenes, here's one that features Kit Harrington's Dane Whitman, who may or may not be a much bigger part of the universe in the future.

Next up, we have one between Sprite and Makkari that actually references none other than the Mad Titan himself, Thanos!

Finally, we come to a fun little featurette, which sees the cast playing a little game that involved deciding which member of the Eternals would be best at certain human activities.

For those who missed the film in theaters, be sure to check it out on Disney+ beginning tomorrow.
