Theaters may have nothing new to show right now, but we still have plenty to share with you here at ComicBookMovie.com. There’s lots to delve into in this latest Marvel news roundup, including some plans for WandaVision to receive its own “Disney Gallery” series just like The Mandalorian!
An update on Ms. Marvel has also been shared, while fans of Fortnite will surely appreciate more intel on plans for Black Widow in the game. A new promo, meanwhile, hints that Sony’s Spider-Man movies – at least those set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – could finally be coming to Disney+.
Talking of that streaming service, there’s a big Doctor Doom rumour to share with you here today too.
So, take a look through this Marvel movie and TV news roundup by clicking the “Next” button below!
6. Disney Gallery: WandaVision Reportedly In The Works
Murphy’s Multiverse is reporting that Marvel Studios has shot behind the scenes content for a Disney Gallery: WandaVision series. Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian was an awesome surprise, and delivered a fascinating look at the work that went into making the hit TV show.
The site notes that, “While I can’t speak to the episode count nor the content, I do know that Marvel Studios was filming behind the scenes footage and interviews for the series during production on WandaVision as early as during Episode 1, the 1950’s set ‘live studio audience’ episode, and the episode in which I expect the dinner with the Hearts, seen in the first trailer, to appear.”
It’s unclear how COVID-19 will have affected these plans, and whether other Marvel shows will get the same treatment, but an official announcement about these plans is hopefully on the way.
5. Ms. Marvel Seemingly Begins Production
According to information shared by online scooper Charles Murphy, Ms. Marvel is now in the early stages of shooting in Atlanta, Georgia. This is exciting news, though he would later add that there’s no guarantee we’ll end up seeing set photos (despite cameras also rolling on location in the city).
This lines up with a recent Instagram story post from Ms. Marvel star Saagar Shaihk.
He confirmed that he’d arrived in Atlanta, and while the actor never mentioned Ms. Marvel, it’s pretty obvious that’s what he’s there for. Marvel Studios certainly isn’t wasting any time getting to work on these shows, and clearly want to get as much done as possible while they’re currently able to.

By now, you’ll no doubt be well aware that Fortnite is adding a new Black Widow skin which, we’re assuming, was meant to coincide with the movie’s planned release earlier this month.
This version of the character is going be decked out in her “Snow Suit,” and a new leak has revealed the item that’s set to accompany it. There’s nothing massively exciting here, but still plenty for fans of the character to appreciate. The “Black Widow Cup” actually kicks off in the game today.
Check out the leaked video above for a better idea of what to expect!
3. Are Sony’s Spider-Man Movies Coming To Disney+?
This is definitely interesting. A lengthy new commercial for the launch of Disney+ in Latin America has been released on YouTube titled, “Disney+: Muchas Historias, un mismo lugar. Lanzamiento 17 de Noviembre.” That translates to Disney+: Many stories, one place. Released November 17.”
That’s exciting news for Disney fans in Latin America, but are they also getting Sony’s Spider-Man movies? At the 27:40 mark in the video above, footage from both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home can be seen. This could be an indication that some sort of deal could be in the works to bring the wall-crawler’s Marvel Cinematic Universe adventures to Disney+.
We’ve been fooled by incorrect international promos before, though, so we’ll have to wait and see.
2. Randall Park And Kat Dennings’ WandaVision Roles
In a very interesting excerpt from Entertainment Weekly‘s WandaVision coverage, the show’s writer, Jac Schaeffer, has shared more hints about what fans can expect from the Disney+ series.
We know that Kat Dennings (Darcy) and Randall Park (Jimmy Woo) will be part of the show, with the prevailing theory being that they’ll both be working for S.W.O.R.D. However, it seems their respective pasts starring in sitcoms could factor into how the characters are portrayed in WandaVision.
“Schaeffer is tight-lipped about how Jimmy and Darcy fit into WandaVision, but she adds that the actors’ previous TV experience (Park on Fresh Off the Boat, Dennings on 2 Broke Girls) makes for a delightfully meta twist,” the site explains, hinting that they’ll be part of that sitcom world Wanda creates.
1. Is Doctor Doom Coming To Disney+?

This is a definite “Rumor Mill” story because while GWW has shared some solid scoops over the years, they’ve also not been 100% reliable. Now, the site’s E-I-C has shared a very interesting tease on social media, hinting that Doctor Doom could soon be seen on Disney+ in some form.
This isn’t the first time this has been rumoured, of course, but having Doom make a surprise appearance in a series like The Falcon and The Winter Soldier would be an epic tease for Phase 4!
At this point, even just a mention of Latveria would be appreciated, and is a definite possibility…
