Black Panther broke a few box office records, became a massive worldwide hit, and generated a little Oscar buzz along the way — pretty much guaranteeing a sequel and making Ryan Coogler’s return to the director’s chair seem fairly likely.

The artist occasionally known as The Rock has revealed the first photo from the set of his upcoming — and somewhat controversial, if your name is Vin or Tyrese — Fast & Furious spinoff, Hobbs and Shaw.

Jordan Peele Reportedly in Talks for ‘Candyman’ Remake
Jordan Peele is understandably in high demand after making his feature directing debut with last year’s phenomenal Get Out.

Here’s Your First Official Look at ‘Captain Marvel’!
Last night, Brie Larson sent out a not-so-cryptic tweet teasing the first official look at Captain Marvel: “Hey EW, I’m bored. Wanna break the internet tomorrow?” While the internet is, unfortunately, still operational (as of this writing, anyway), Entertainment Weekly has indeed unveiled the very first official photo of Larson as the Marvel Comics superhero, set to make her debut in her very own solo movie next year.
James Gunn’s Firing Could Also Affect ‘Avengers 4’
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Marvel placed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on hold in the wake of James Gunn’s firing. Despite the best efforts of his cast and a meeting with Disney head Alan Horn, Gunn won’t be returning to the MCU for the foreseeable future, leaving Vol. 3 — and its affect on the overall MCU narrative — in purgatory. According to Dave Bautista, the Guardians sequel isn’t the only movie impacted by Gunn’s firing.

Paul Walker’s Brothers Want to Bring Him Back in Another ‘Fast and Furious’ Sequel
Following his untimely death, Paul Walker’s brothers Cody and Caleb stepped in to help finish production on Furious 7, serving as stand-ins for the late actor. Thanks to their presence, along with some VFX magic, director James Wan was able to complete Walker’s scenes — and create a touching tribute to Walker for the film’s final scene. Although the series has moved beyond Walker’s absence, his brothers are hoping to step in and revive him once again for another sequel.

Marvel Still Using James Gunn’s ‘Guardians 3’ Script as Other Major Studios Line Up to Hire Him
Earlier today, a rumor began circulating about Marvel’s plans to toss out James Gunn’s script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
