There are quite a few Marvel Cinematic Universe-related rumors doing the rounds online tonight, with several different scoopers (some with better track records than others) sharing updates on various upcoming big and small screen projects.

We'll start with the generally reliable Daniel Richtman, who has heard that Avengers 5 - formerly known as Avengers: The Kang Dynasty - is keeping its May 1st, 2026 release date, and is currently scheduled to shoot in the UK next year.

Still no word on what the new title might be, but there's a lot of speculation that it will end up being "Avengers: Secret Wars - Part One."

Moving on to Disney+'s WandaVision spin-off, Vision Quest, and Richtman believes production will kick off this October in the UK. He also reiterates that the titular synthezoid's kids, Vin and Viv, will be introduced in the series.

As for Marvel Studios' long-gestating Blade reboot, the movie will reportedly be set in modern times (there were rumors that it might be a period piece), and may tie into a planed Midnight Sons project.

Moving on to the elusive X-Men movie, and a supposed synopsis for the planned MCU reboot is doing the rounds.

About as generic as you can get! There could be a tentative logline for the project out there at this stage, but we're not buying this one!

Finally, we have word on which character Game of Thrones and Harry Potter alum Natalia Tena - who was rumored to have signed on for a mysterious MCU role earlier this year - might be playing.

This might be considered a spoiler.

According to Nexus Point, Tena will appear in Deadpool and Wolverine as an older Variant of Laura Kinney, aka X-23. Logan's Dafne Keen is also expected to reprise her role, but we have heard that there will be multiple Variants of quite a few characters in the movie (we know multiple Mercs with a Mouth will be showing up).

What do you make of these Marvel Cinematic Universe rumors? Which ones do you buy, and which don't pass the smell test? Be sure to drop us a comment down below.

Natalie as an older Laura/X-23 is actually good casting imo…

If true then I’m down for it!!.

@TheVisionary25 - Also Natalia Tena's parents are spanish and so are Dafne and her mother.. which adds believability to this rumor.
bkmeijer1 - 4/19/2024, 2:47 AM
@TheVisionary25 - hadn't thought about that, but it works. Although I also kinda just wanna see Keene return as well. She's older now too
OriginalGusto1 - 4/18/2024, 9:21 PM
Ah [frick], she's british...gross.

I enjoyed her in GoT and she’s actually a fine enough casting for Laura, but Daphne Keen seems old enough now to play a full on X-23 and that character doesn’t seem in need of multiple variants in this movie.
TheVisionary25 - 4/18/2024, 9:41 PM
Also i thought Vision Quest was one of those shows that were cancelled due to Disney cutting back on content?.

Oh wait , it has never even officially been announced yet so how about we wait for that guys..

Anyway , I would be down for that show since I’m assuming it will follow “White Vision” as he goes on a journey of self discovery.

Also , if true it sucks that Blade won’t be a period piece anymore but if their intention is to have it tie into a Midnight Sons project then setting the movie in present day would be the cleaner way to do it.
bkmeijer1 - 4/19/2024, 2:36 AM
@TheVisionary25 - think the trades reported on it, so about as official as it gets I guess. Do wanna see it though. Even if it's a special presentation. I just wanna see Vision again
Malatrova15 - 4/18/2024, 9:41 PM
So , is this the Hunter Shafer role she rejected'?
MisterDoctor217 - 4/18/2024, 10:19 PM
She actually fits the part.

Also I reallly doubt they’re starting production soon on Avengers 5 lol
They haven’t announced a director, who’ll be starting in it or even what the story will be.
That movie came apart as soon as the Jonathan Majors thing happen and if they are starting from scratch , it’ll take a while.

Look at Fantastic 4, that movie was delayed idk how many times and we barely got the cast announcement this year when it was announced back in 2020 lol
grif - 4/18/2024, 10:35 PM
wake me when they reboot with a competent movie making team.
CorndogBurglar - 4/18/2024, 11:11 PM
Haha. That X-Men synopsis is totally generic and fake. Literally anyone could have written that if they know even the most basic things about the X-Men.
Fogs - 4/19/2024, 3:42 AM
@CorndogBurglar - It's literally the description at and I'm not kidding 😂
abd00bie - 4/19/2024, 9:30 AM
@CorndogBurglar - It's one of those "Change it a bit so it doesn't look like you copied me" situations
CorndogBurglar - 4/19/2024, 5:11 PM
@Fogs - Are you serious? Then this is the worst professional/official synopsis I've ever seen. It gives zero information that anyone wouldn't already know. It's so basic and generic.
CorndogBurglar - 4/19/2024, 5:12 PM
@abd00bie - It's so basic. It's like if a Batman movie had a synopsis that said, "Batman hits the streets to fight crime."
Fogs - 4/20/2024, 4:26 AM
@CorndogBurglar - I mean it's the description for the team in general, not necessarily for the mcu
Forthas - 4/19/2024, 12:03 AM
This article offers an interesting theory about Ryan Cooglers upcoming film rumored to be about vampires. It suggests that maybe he pitched a Blade film to Marvel given his association with them and the timing. That would then make a lot of sense as to why Coogler would choose to delve into this genre which will draw possible comparisons to Blade.

That's...pretty much the basis for X-Men in general. Would be easier if they just said they didn't know anything at all because it's far too early. 😐
bkmeijer1 - 4/19/2024, 2:46 AM
Avengers: Secret Wars - Part One would be my pick as well. Make Beyonder (Prime Kang) the villain in that, and Doom the villain in Part Two. Or just go with Avengers: Forever.

As for the X-Men, it sounds generic. Although I don't mind that. Just gimme the original comics team in movie one and Giant-Size in two. No need to overcomplicate it.
ObserverIO - 4/19/2024, 5:34 AM
@bkmeijer1 - It really makes no sense for Avengers 5 to be Secret Wars Part One. Avengers 6 could be Secret Wars
Part One.

I totally agree that Secret Wars would benefit from being more than one movie, but you need an Avengers story to build up to it. The big end of the world/multiverse finale.

Avengers: Forever is a good title though.

Or Avengers: Time Runs Out, Avengers: The End of Time (if they've quietly cancelled the Celestials film with the same subtitle) or any number of names. But not Secret Wars, it's too early for that.
bkmeijer1 - 4/19/2024, 5:44 AM
@ObserverIO - I agree they should've had a normal Avengers movie before that, but I think it can still work with Secret Wars Part 1.

They could just have the Beyonder try to defeat the Avengers in the MCU-616 alone, and it ends with him creating Battleworld in this reality. Part 2 could then bring in characters from the multiverse.

Breaking news, I got the synopsis for the next Spider-Man movie:

"The one and only Amazing Spider-Man webs his way into the MCU"
TheMetaMan - 4/19/2024, 5:09 AM
Natalie Tena playing an older version of X-23/Laura that’s pretty neat. Tena was cool in John Wick 4 and i remember her playing a small role in an episode of the Mandalorian. She definitely has an aura about her. Man Deadpool 3 can’t come soon enough and where’s that bloody second trailer!! Lol.

"Charles Xavier`s team of merry mutants"

When exactly, were the X-Men EVER 'merry'...?
