BossLogic works quick. The artist was able to mock up some artwork depicting Henry Cavill as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Wolverine in a matter of hours. Earlier this week, a rumor involving Cavill joining the MCU as Wolverine started to spread like wildfire. He is reportedly all set to make his debut in Captain Marvel 2. While there is a precedent of the two characters meeting up in the comics, fans are having a hard time wrapping their head around the Man of Steel becoming the Man of Adamantium.

While BossLogic's artwork of Henry Cavill as Wolverine is awesome, as usual, it will more than likely be the closest we ever come to seeing The Man of Steel actor in the MCU. The more time that the rumor has been sitting has given fans enough time to realize that Cavill really just does not have enough time to take on such an undertaking. Plus, this initial report has yet to be confirmed by Cavill's representation or by Marvel Studios. That doesn't stop BossLogic from imagining what that looks like though.
As for Marvel Studios not confirming anything about the possibility of Henry Cavill joining the MCU for Captain Marvel 2, that is something that, even if proven to be true, the studio would never confirm this early. The studio works in a deeply secretive manner and often thrives off of rumors like this. Everybody knows that Marvel Studios has regained their Fox properties and that the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and others are all going to have to be recast. As time goes by, we're likely going to start seeing a lot more of these rumored castings, with many of them turning out to be too good to be true.
Even thinking of Henry Cavill going from Justice League to Captain Marvel 2 was enough to get MCU fans really excited. Cavill is a great actor and could bring a lot to the Marvel side of things. Plus, he'd be able to properly grow his facial hair for the Wolverine role and not have it digitally removed in the post-production process. He doesn't seem to be doing anything with the Superman role in the near future, so why not give it a shot? As it turns out, he has a lot on his plate, including The Witcher season 2 for Netflix.
While a lot of fans were excited about the idea of Henry Cavill taking over for Hugh Jackman in the Wolverine role, there were just as many who were dismissive, and not just because it's an unconfirmed rumor. Cavill is approaching 40-years old, which some people deem to be too old to play the iconic comic book character. 40 isn't really too old, but for action roles of this magnitude, it would be a pretty big undertaking, though he would probably do the same for Man of Steel 2.

Brie Larson has shared her first screen test photos from Captain Marvel. The actress has been on a bit of a social media roll over the past few months. Images of her subbing for Jimmy Kimmel and pretending to choke out her DC rival Gal Gadot at the Academy Awards have all gone viral. The Carol Danvers actress has a good time on social media and has no problem sharing that aspect of her life with her devoted fans.
It's unclear when the images of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel were taken, though it looks like the Atlanta set of Infinity War, which would make sense. The photos appear to have been taken on the Vormir set, though that has not been confirmed at this time. The Carol Danvers movie was still well over a year from hitting theaters when these shots were taken. Larson had this to say about that day.googletag.cmd.pushfunction ; 'Photos from my first camera test in full costume. We were still figuring out what her signature moves would be, and I was still learning how to move in a leather wetsuit. Good times.' While these are the first test photos, Brie Larson looks more than comfortable taking on the role of Captain Marvel. Back before the production started, Larson would show off her workout routine on social media, which revealed just how much hard work she had to put into the role physically. Additionally, she also gave fans a look at her Air Force training at the same time. Throughout her time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the actress has given her fans an inside look at what it's like to be wrapped up in that experience.
The test images are great, but MCU fans are dying to know about Captain Marvel 2 and when that production will begin. We all know it's on the way, but the details are being kept under wraps because that's what Marvel Studios does best. For now, fans can only speculate about who will be involved in the sequel and who will end up being the main villain. However, don't expect to see Henry Cavill as Wolverine in the highly anticipated sequel. That particular rumor started to spread last week and has apparently been officially debunked.
Carol Danvers was first teased at the very end of Infinity War when Nick Fury pulled out the old pager to contact her. He turned to dust, but not before sending the message out to Danvers. The pager was later explained in Captain Marvel and was then the key that brought Danvers together with Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Endgame. As for where the character will be going next, that's a big question mark at the moment. Hopefully we'll get some teases in the few months.

An intriguing new theory about the Marvel Cinematic Universe has emerged that suggests we could be seeing an adaptation of the World War Hulk storyline sometime in the future. Additionally, it's suggested that none other than Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch, is the one who will set these catastrophic events in motion. The pieces of the puzzle will be moved into place during Phase 4 in projects like WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
As with anything in this particular arena, it's just a fan theory and nothing more. Though, it's compelling enough to discuss. Be that as it may, it shouldn't be taken as something that is definitely going to happen. With that in mind, Reddit user TheLazerShell recently posted some broad predictions for the future of the MCU. One of the biggest predictions is that much of Marvel Phase 4 and likely Phase 5 will lead us to World War Hulk. Here's how it's explained in the post.'I think, through WandaVision and Multiverse of Madness, Wanda is going to be lead towards that path. Breaking down and causing Madness around her. In the comics when she did this she caused She-Hulk to lose control and rage. In the movies she can force Banner out and bring Hulk back to the steering wheel, who is by this point pissed because of what Banner did so he goes full on rampage with World War Hulk levels of anger and causes a ton of damage.'
World War Hulk was a major Marvel Comics event. Published in 2007, it picks up after the events of Planet Hulk, which was loosely adapted as part of Thor: Ragnarok. Essentially, Hulk returns to Earth and is pissed off that some of his fellow heroes sent him off to space and exacts destructive revenge. It's also important to note that members of the X-Men and Fantastic Four, such as Reed Richards, are involved in this storyline. So it could be a way to bring them into the fold in a meaningful way.
As we saw in Avengers: Endgame, Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner had managed to reach something of an understanding with Hulk. The two became one. Hulk's body, Banner's mind. This seemed to be the mutual result of months of experimentation. However, as this theory puts forth, that's not the case at all. Another important element to the theory has to do with the visions Wanda gave the Avengers in Age of Ultron. Interestingly, all of the visions we saw in the movie, more or less, came true. Yet, we never saw what visions Bruce was given. The theory also explains this with the following.'I think the reason is because Banner did not see anything, Wanda actually gave Hulk visions. The vision of becoming World War Hulk, which is also what leads him to not trusting Banner anymore and literally just taking off to space and not letting Banner out for 2 years. But also, I think the Avengers are going to exist and are going to be more less: Sam as Cap, Bucky, Ant-Man, Wasp, maybe Photon etc. etc. When Wanda goes crazy she reveals the existence of The...
The Third Floor, the industry's busiest visualization company in tackling superhero movies “Black Widow,” “Avengers: Endgame”, already had an advantage working remotely with real-time tools and virtual workflows when the coronavirus pandemic struck early this year. Turns out, though, that the COVID-19 epicenter was too close for comfort.
“When this crisis began, we initially faced the challenge of protecting our staff in Beijing, who were in the midst of launching our first permanent office in China,” said CEO and co-founder Chris Edwards. “When the virus started spreading beyond Wuhan, the first thing we did was send everyone home and connect them virtually...we learned a lot about the procedures for mitigating the risk of spreading the virus that we began to apply to our other offices in London, Atlanta, and LA [headquarters].
“Time was of the essence to put a highly secure, remote-working infrastructure in place,” he said, “and we needed to leverage the company infrastructure to bolster communication and function as a support group for all of our employees and their families.”
Back in LA, The Third Floor TTF found the resilience of its Beijing crew instructive. The company, which has become the go-to visualization specialist for the MCU performing rough previs of scenes, more elaborate techvis breakdowns of camera lenses, set construction, and stunts, and postvis enhancements during crunch time, used video conferencing and other methods of digital collaboration to significantly advance preparations and stay on schedule. Despite the physical isolation, however, everyone started relying on the video calls for more than just work-related advice.
“At our [LA] hub, we didn't want to take the risk of being unprepared, so we authorized our IT team to increase our internet band tenfold, and build an advanced remote login system that could enable our artists to work fluidly and securely from home,” said Edwards, who worked with IT chiefs at major studios such as Disney for advising and approving their comprehensive work-from-home solution.
But the two-week transition to a completely virtual studio only became possible with the help of industry colleagues and suppliers when California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA Mayor Eric Garcetti issued the stay-at-home order. And, as part of its mobilization effort, the company launched a TTFaid program as a resource for more than 100 employees and their families with supplies, aid, and emotional support.
“With this early foresight in February, we were prepared to roll out a set of guidelines, which I called the TTF Health Vigilance Plan, across our other studios in LA, Atlanta, and...
