MCU Rumors OF The Week

Last Updated: 10.49 PM, Feb 16, 2024


The chaos that Marvel Studios has caused on the internet at this point is massive and unmatched. This week has only been about Marvel movies and shows, and there is no way any other studio even had the chance to have any share of the spotlight, as the studio took it all. The week started with Deadpool & Wolverine's first look teaser that hit the shores in Super Bowl 2024. Following the same was the cast announcement of The Fantastic Four and not even 24 hours from it was the trailer of X-Men ’97 that was released yesterday. But with the three massive announcements also came the big rumors.

Rumors and the Marvel Cinematic Universe go hand in hand, and there is no way one can detach the two. The Fantastic Four, Deadpool & Wolverine, and the animated X-Men ’97 are three of the most anticipated projects from the Marvel mill. While Deadpool & Wolverine are set for release in July, and X-Men ’97 in March, The Fantastic Four will release in July 2025. However, nothing is stopping the scoopers from bringing out some hot rumors about the projects from the studio.

While there is an update about Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, there is also a worrisome but also hopeful update about Mahershala Ali starrer long-awaited Blade. Below is a list of five massive rumors about the Marvel Cinematic Universe that have made a massive buzz across the world. Read on and get on the exciting ride.

Javier Bardem Still Eyed For Galactus

While The Fantastic Four poster gave us the four main leads and showed us H.E.R.B.I.E. in it, there was no hint of the big villain in the movie. While there is the robot that was specially made to find the cosmic being Galactus, there is all the reason to believe that he will be there in the movie. As per the rumor from MCM Culture Javier Bardem is still the top choice to play Galactus for the studio. The executives are right now figuring out dates as the actor is busy with another project.

Doctor Doom & Silver Surfer In The Fantastic Four

There is an abundance of The Fantastic Four news and we are not complaining. Another rumor from the same scooper says that Doctor Doom will have his space in the reboot. But he will be seen by the end of the movie and the studio is yet to cast an actor to play him. The buzz is that the studio will cast an actor for Doom during the production. Not just that, the studio is also on a hunt to find an actor to play Silver Surfer in the reboot.


Deadpool & Wolverine In Avengers The Kang Dynasty

Away from The Fantastic Four, there is an update on Avengers: The Kang Dynasty. While the uncertainty around Kang and the Avengers 5 movie is still there, a rumor says that Deadpool & Wolverine will now be seen in the film. Earlier the plan was to have them in Avengers: Secret Wars but now Kevin Feige has decided to have them in The Kang Dynasty too.

X-Men In What If...? Season 3

Technically X-Men ’97 will be the first lengthy screen time the mutants will have in the MCU. However, reports now claim that they will also be a lady of What If...? Season 3. The reports also make sense because season two has shown how wild the studio can go with this IP and in a very good way.

Blade To Be Delayed Again, But...

Blade seems like a doomed project with all the delays it has suffered so far. Mahershala Ali starrer is about to suffer yet another delay if the scooper is to believe. The movie might get delayed to 2026. But there is a silver lining as per the report that says the actor is happy with where the script of the film is going.
