Published

on

Jon Favreau helped to jumpstart the MCU with Iron Man, now he will do the same thing with Star Wars. Disney announced that the writer/director will be heading a new project for the Disney streaming service.

“If you told me at 11 years old that I would be getting to tell stories in the Star Wars universe, I wouldn’t have believed you,” Favreau said. “I can’t wait to embark upon this exciting adventure.”

“I couldn’t be more excited about Jon coming on board to produce and write for the new direct-to-consumer platform,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “Jon brings the perfect mix of producing and writing talent, combined with a fluency in the Star Wars universe. This series will allow Jon the chance to work with a diverse group of writers and directors and give Lucasfilm the opportunity to build a robust talent base.”

The untitled Star Wars live-action series does not yet have a release date. Disney first unveiled plans for the series back in November. The Disney streaming service is expected to launch by the end of 2019.

Netflix Cancels Luke Cage Series

Published

on

It looks like Luke Cage is the latest Marvel Hero to get canceled.

Netflix announced they would be canceling the series just a week after canceling Iron Fist. “Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” Marvel and the streaming service said on Friday. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”

The second season had Luke Cage embracing his fame after the events of Defenders until Bushmaster played by Mustafia Shakir shows up to claim Harlem. Bushmaster wanted control of Harlem’s gangs, something that not only puts him on Luke’s to-punch list, but also in the crosshairs of Mariah (Alfre Woodard,) who has consolidated her control of Harlem and isn’t interested in interlopers. Fortunately, Luke isn’t without backup, as Misty Knight (Simone Missick) has a bright shiny new robot arm to beat up goons with.

Luke Cage was one of the best shows on Netflix, its sad day that creative difference between the higher-ups means no show for the fans.

Created by David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jordan Cahan (My Best Friend’s Girl), who will serve as executive producers and showrunners, Black Monday also boasts Emmy nominees Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Preacher, Superbad, Future Man) as executive producers; they also directed the pilot.

Cheadle plays a fast-talking, cocaine-toting stockbroker who declares in the trailer, “I am black Moses and I am going to put the ‘brother’ in Lehman Brothers,” while Rannells’ character declares, “I’m gonna become the biggest swinging dick on Wall Street.”

The trailer, soundtracked by Lil Wayne’s “Uproar,” captures the excess that comes with a healthy market and the dramatic fall from financial grace that arrived on Black Monday. The series’ pilot, directed by Rogen and Goldberg, premieres on Showtime on January 20th.
