It’s been quite a roller coaster for Hawkeye fans since the announcement of the Disney+ series inspired by the acclaimed Matt Fraction/David Aja run — from the initial confusion over the least popular Avenger headlining a series, to the exciting casting of Hailee Steinfeld, to both stars’ involvement being in question. But it seems that Disney is still full steam ahead with Hawkeye, which will follow the everyman Avenger as he takes on a new protegé Kate Bishop, who Steinfeld is in talks to play.
With the launch of Disney+ today, fans got a glimpse at the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a new episode of Expanding The Universe, which gave a preview of several pieces of concept art for Hawkeye. The Hawkeye series concept art should get uncertain fans excited once again, as the wacky style, tone, and beloved sidekicks of Fraction and Aja’s beloved run are in full display — along with our first look at Kate Bishop in action. Most importantly, Pizza Dog is here.

Despite making a triumphant return from dust in Avengers: Endgame, we haven’t seen much of Chris Pratt on the big screen lately. Sure, he voiced the lead character of Emmet in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, and he had a role in the sparsely seen western The Kid, but otherwise, Pratt has been laying pretty low as a leading man. But that changes next year with a new sci-fi thriller that also has the Parks and Recreation star executive producing for the first time.
About a year and a half ago, you might remember that Chris Pratt was announced to be starring in Ghost Draft, a sci-fi thriller that finds humanity fighting an alien invasion. But when it looks like humanity is on the ropes, they figure out a way to draft soldiers from the past to help fight the war. Now production is underway with an extensive ensemble cast, and the movie has a new name: The Tomorrow War. And with that new title also comes a first look photo. Read More »

Next year, Pixar Animation will be bringing two original movies to theaters. It’ll be the first time they haven’t released a sequel in a calendar year since 2015. Onward arrives first in March, but then summer brings a new movie that was announced earlier this year, and we’ve got a new look at it.
Soul, directed by Inside Out and Up helmer Pete Docter, follows Joe Gardner (voiced by Jamie Foxx), an aging middle school music teacher who has long dreamed of performing jazz music on stage.

Even though we won’t be getting that new Muppets series that was previously in the works for Disney+, there will still be a little bit of magic from The Jim Henson Company and their incredibly puppetry in the form of something a little different than they’ve done before.
Earth to Ned is a new comedic half-hour series that has been given a straight-to-series order by Disney+. The series will be a fairly traditional late night talk show kind of format with celebrity guests, but the host will be Ned, a blue-skinned alien, and his lieutenant Cornelius, who were sent to scout Earth for an eventual invasion but became obsessed with our pop culture instead. That sounds like it has the potential for a lot of fun. Read More »
Over the summer, we learned there would be a limited comic book series called The Rise of Kylo Ren that showed us how Ben Solo turned to the dark side. The origins of the villain have only been briefly touched upon in the new Star Wars trilogy, so this is a story that fans are hungry to hear. Writer Charles Soule has cautioned that not all fans will be pleased with what is revealed in this comic book, but if the cover of the second issue is any indicator, I’m already on board with the story they’re telling. See it below! Read More »

The Lucasfilm creative team had incorporated parts of McQuarrie’s original unused concept art in films like Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the prequel film Solo: A Star Wars Story, and they again return to McQuarrie’s vision for inspiration with Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
