As Keanu Reeves enjoys an incredible career renaissance that’s seen him cement his reputation as one of the most popular stars in the industry and an all-round good guy, he’s found himself in the midst of a bidding war between the two biggest comic book franchises in Hollywood.
Even though it’s still a few years away from hitting the big screen, it seems like director James Gunn has already begun hashing out plans for his next Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. While he’s still burning the midnight oil on the sequel to 2016’s Suicide Squad, Gunn has recently taken the time to keep fans updated on how Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is shaping up.
The upcoming introduction of Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe has the potential to shake things up dramatically for the long-running franchise, not least because of the fact the Merc with a Mouth is very much aware of the fact that he’s the star of a comic book movie, which offers the MCU a self-referential angle that it hasn’t really explored before.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is still listed as shooting June. This is despite not having a completed script, not having a director (Sam Raimi is still in negotiations and yet to be officially confirmed) and not having a firm cast in place. One actor from Doctor Strange who’s not yet 100% confirmed to return is Rachel McAdam’s Christine Palmer. While Palmer didn’t have a huge amount to do in the first film, comics fans will know she becomes the hero Night Nurse – and if the character does appear in the sequel she’d be expected to take up that mantle.

Gal Gadot’s played Diana Prince for three movies already, but the DCEU has still only scratched the surface of the wide Wonder Woman mythos from the comics. The upcoming Wonder Woman 1984 should go someway to deepening it, with two classic foes – Cheetah and Maxwell Lord – making their cinematic debuts, but there still remains a lot of other key characters to introduce in the future. Like Nubia, for example, the second Wonder Woman.
According to sources close to We Got This Covered, Marvel are reportedly planning to give Tom Hardy a cameo in Spider-Man 4.
Within the world of independent films, there’s an ongoing joke that fans and critics have tapped into – if you’re going to make a movie, it better feature the performance of either Lucas Hedges or Timothée Chalamet (or in the case of 2017’s Lady Bird, both). In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve, at one point, mixed the two up (here’s a handy guide to telling them apart), but you might also remember Chalamet from his recent appearances in The King and Little Women.
