MCU Phase 5 Complete Release Schedule Revealed



Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige unveils the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 5 full slate, which will begin with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

Marvel Studios’ full MCU Phase 5 slate of movies and TV shows has just been announced. The MCU Phase 4 kicked off in 2021 with Black Widow and has included a slew of movies and shows across Disney+ and theatrical releases. As MCU Phase 4 comes to a close with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the franchise is looking forward to the next stage of its storytelling.

After skipping San Diego Comic-Con for a couple of years, the MCU returns to the annual event for the first time since 2019 to lay out what’s next for the universe. As usual, the presentation features a look back at what Phase 4 has already become and a tease of what still remains in it. Beyond that, however, Marvel Studios is also finally talking about Phase 5 as they continue to rebuild the MCU following the culmination of the Infinity Saga via Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.


Kevin Feige attended Marvel Studios’ Hall H presentation to talk about what comes next for the franchise. There, he unveiled the full MCU Phase 5 slate, which includes a mix of movies and shows. Kicking off with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in February 2023, Phase 5 continues with Secret Invasion in Spring 2023, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in May 2023, Echo then Loki in Summer 2023, The Marvels in July 2023, Blade in November 2023 and Ironheart in Fall 2023. Agatha: Coven of Chaos will release in Winter 2023/2024, then Phase 5 continues into 2024 with Daredevil: Born Again in Spring 2024 and Captain America: New World Order in May 2024. Check it out below:

As previously mentioned, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which is slated to release later this year will be the end of MCU Phase 4. Then, 2023 will mark the beginning of Phase 5, interestingly, with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The Peyton Reed-led sub-franchise is no stranger to bookending an MCU storytelling chapter as the original Ant-Man film wrapped up Phase 2. This time, however, it will kickstart a new one, which makes sense if the franchise’s overall storyline builds on Kang the Conqueror to be its main villain since the time-traveling bad guy will be properly introduced in the threequel. After that, there’s a mix of TV shows and movies that follows as Marvel Studios tries to balance out its storytelling between the big and small screen. Most of these projects have previously been known, but are now only confirmed. Arguably the most exciting announcement from the slate, however, is the 18-episode Daredevil series, titled Daredevil: Born Again.

Interestingly, Marvel Studios continues to hold out on another Avengers outing. In Phase 5, it seems like their culminating film will be focused on villains with Thunderbolts. The much-anticipated Avengers 5 is confirmed to be part of Phase 6 instead. In any case, this makes sense.  As seen in some of the Phase 4 projects, Marvel Studios has already started subtly assembling their lineup for this team led by Valentina Allegra de Fontaine. This is a smart move from Feige so as to shake things up for the franchise. The question now is whether or not there are some other projects that have yet to be announced in MCU Phase 5 that they are sitting on. In any case, there’s still D23 Expo where Feige can continue to talk more about their future plans.

‘Deal or No Deal’ Reboot Set at ITV, ITVX With Stephen Mulhern as Host



Popular game show format “Deal or No Deal” is making a comeback on U.K. broadcaster ITV and streamer ITVX.

In the show, a contestant is confronted with 22 sealed boxes, each one hiding a different amount of money. Without knowing what each one contains, the contestant must eliminate the boxes, which are opened one at a time, and the amount of money inside is revealed. Pressure mounts as the player is tempted by the Banker to accept an offer of cash in exchange for what might be inside their box. As long as the larger cash prizes remain unchosen, the Banker’s offers will get higher. But that can all change in an instant if a big cash prize is unveiled.

The show will be hosted by Stephen Mulhern (“In for a Penny”) and produced by Banijay U.K.’s Remarkable Entertainment.

Channel 4 was home to the show from 2005-2016 with Noel Edmonds as host. It is based on a 2002 Netherlands format that has been commissioned in over 80 territories worldwide with more than 350 productions.

Mulhern said: “Wow what an opportunity, I’m beyond excited to be hosting the brand-new series. I’ve always been such a huge fan of the show, so much so, I’ve been practising at home with small cereal boxes. It looks so simple but it’s an incredibly compelling game for both those playing and the viewers watching at home. It’s one of the greatest shows of all time and to be the new host is an honor. I can’t wait to get started.”

Tamara Gilder, joint managing director at Remarkable Entertainment, added: “We are thrilled to be bringing ‘Deal or No Deal’ back. It’s an iconic format – but now on a new channel with a new, fantastic host. We also have a new Banker, but I’m afraid they’re even more awful than the last one.”

“Deal or No Deal” is commissioned by Katie Rawcliffe, head of entertainment commissioning and Joe Mace, commissioning editor, entertainment, ITV. Executive producers are Tamara Gilder and Cat Lawson, joint MDs of Remarkable Entertainment.

Rawcliffe said: “’Deal or No Deal’ is such an iconic format and we are delighted that it will be joining the ITV family. Stephen’s infectious warmth and wit mixed with his natural rapport with members of the public is the perfect combination for this much-loved TV series.”

Casting is now open.

Grey’s Anatomy Star Describes Filming Without Ellen Pompeo



Kim Raver describes what filming Grey’s Anatomy has been like without Ellen Pompeo. After the star’s exit in season 19, other characters have taken on larger roles, including Raver’s Teddy Altman. First appearing on the show in 2009, Teddy has dealt with personal and professional hurdles, and her relationship with Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) remains an important storyline. By focusing on Teddy, the new surgical interns, and others, Grey’s Anatomy has a future beyond Meredith, though Pompeo’s absence will likely still be felt.

In a recent interview with Extra, Raver discusses filming the medical drama since Pompeo’s departure. She shares that Pompeo is still very much a part of Grey’s Anatomy on set. Read Raver’s comments about her former co-star below:

I really still feel her presence there, especially when I was directing, when I was editing. You know, her voice over is there. Just the other day, I saw her, she was biking from her trailer — I guess to go do ADR — so she is very much there, and I think she really paved the way for me, for example, having the opportunity to direct and this wonderful… We are such an ensemble show.”

How Grey’s Anatomy Can Continue Without Meredith

Now that Grey’s Anatomy has been renewed, questions surrounding Pompeo’s future have been brought up. Meredith is still mentioned by other characters, and is expected to make an appearance during the season 19 finale. Beyond that, it remains to be seen how much of her story will be featured. Grey’s Anatomy has introduced a number of new faces though, including Simone (Alexis Floyd), Lucas (Niko Terho), Mika (Midori Francis), and Benson (Harry Shum Jr.), and is already tracking their journeys through Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

Teddy, who has taken over as chief of surgery, is still adjusting to her new position, and the most recent Grey’s Anatomy episode, titled “Training Day,” brought several challenges for her to work through. Seeing her and others carry out different roles suggests there is a plan moving forward. Meredith’s absence could provide more room for characters to develop, and by exploring their stories, Grey’s Anatomy might be able to continue past season 20.

Despite the additional exit of Maggie Pierce (Kelly McCreary), other longtime cast members, including Raver, help balance out the newcomers. Since Pompeo remains the series’ narrator, there is also the possibility that she could return after season 19. Grey’s Anatomy largely revolved around Pompeo’s character and while many miss her, they will enjoy knowing that she is still involved in some way.

Jonathan Majors U.S. Army Commercials Pulled After Actor’s Arrest for Alleged Assault



The U.S. Army has paused its advertising campaign featuring Jonathan Majors in response to the actor’s arrest Saturday for an alleged assault.

The two “Be All You Can Be” commercials featuring Majors as an on-screen narrator were pulled Sunday. The U.S. Army plans to continue running other ads in the campaign, maintaining a digital presence as well as a prominent position in broadcasts of the NCAA March Madness tournament. Advertisements featuring Majors were still running during the NCAA broadcasts on Saturday evening.

“The U.S. Army is aware of the arrest of Jonathan Majors and we are deeply concerned by the allegations surrounding his arrest,” Army Enterprise Marketing Office public affairs chief Laura DeFrancisco confirmed in a statement. “We recently released two ads in which Mr. Majors appears. While Mr. Majors is innocent until proven guilty, prudence dictates that we pull our ads until the investigation into these allegations is complete.”

The multi-million dollar “Be All You Can Be” campaign was widely seen as a renewed effort for the U.S. Army to rebound after its worst recruiting year in recent history. In 2022, the organization enlisted roughly 45,000 individuals, falling 25% short of its goals.

Centering the ad campaign on a celebrity like Majors reflected an effort to renew enthusiasm for the military among young Americans. Majors, who has enjoyed the reputation of a rising star in Hollywood, is the star of recent blockbuster releases “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” and “Creed III” and the buzzy Sundance drama “Magazine Dreams.”

Majors was arrested on Saturday in New York on domestic violence allegations after a dispute with a 30-year old woman, who was taken to the hospital with “minor injuries to her head and neck,” according to authorities.

Majors’ legal representation has argued that the actor is “completely innocent.”

“We are quickly gathering and presenting evidence to the District Attorney with the expectation that all charges will be dropped imminently,” criminal defense lawyer Priya Chaudhry said Sunday morning.
