All of Marvel's Disney+ shows have halted production due to coronavirus concerns. The studio previously announced that they were suspending their big screen projects, so it was really only a matter of time before the TV aspect was announced. All of Hollywood is trying to figure out what to do and suspending production has been occurring frequently over the past few weeks. In addition to the entertainment side of things, Disneyland and Disney World are now closed as of today. This is only the fourth time in history that Disneyland has shut down and it has never been closed for weeks like it is now.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision have all suspended production. As for the rest of the Disney+ shows that are in development, they will continue to be worked on remotely. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier had to halt production in Easter Europe earlier in the week and were set to return to Atlanta for more. However, that will not be the case. It is unclear how long these shows will be suspended, but it will likely be for at least two weeks.
Shang-Chi suspended production for two weeks when it was revealed that director Destin Daniel Cretton was awaiting his coronavirus test to come back. The movie is currently suspended in Australia, which is where Tom Hanks tested positive for the coronavirus. The Last Duel, The Little Mermaid, Home Alone, Nightmare Alley, Peter Pan & Wendy, and Shrunk have all been put on hold as the world tries to figure out what to do next with the pandemic.
Marvel currently has Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, What If...?, Moon Knight, and Hawkeye all in the pre-production process. Jeremy Renner has recently been training to get back in Clint Barton shape and it looks like he's going to have so more time to do so. However, gyms will likely be one of the next things to get shut down as entire countries go on lock down. Italy has been in quarantine for days and it was just announced that Spain and France will follow suit in attempt to stop the coronavirus from spreading any further.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is set to debut this summer and its release date should not be impacted unless this all gets a lot worse in the coming weeks. Loki is set to premiere next spring and WandaVision will hit Disney+ by the end of the year. Hollywood could lose up to $20 billion when all is said and done, though things could likely get worse before they get any better. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. For now, Disney is being extremely cautious with their cast and crews. Variety was the first to report on the Marvel Disney+ shows temporarily suspending production.
Welcome to The Clock Tower, where we’ll break down the goings on of the The CW network’s Arrowverse. We’ll touch on things like themes, cultural impact, lead-ins to major events, ships, and more every week! Warning: this Clock Tower is filled with spoilers. Proceed at your own risk.
The episodes that come after the annual crossover have to accomplish a lot. Potential new viewers, whether they be fans that dropped off of the respective series or the folks who’ve never tuned in before, have to be given a reason to stay. Crisis on Infinite Earths’ magnitude meant that the Arrowverse was going to have to go even harder than they would after crossovers past. Thankfully, the hardworking writers of this little ‘verse were up to the task.
Each show came back with something to prove. It’s strange to say, but the only episode that didn’t fully work with me was Legends of Tomorrow’s premiere. Its antics usually play like gangbusters with me, but I really didn’t find myself on board with what they were trying to do until the very end. With that in mind, there’s still plenty of good to dive into in our new post-Crisis landscape.Where Do We Go from Here?
Changes are rampant throughout the Arrowverse. Though mostly the folks who know about the Crisis are just trying to find a way to go on. The biggest ripple was on Supergirl, where Kara Danvers and company find themselves forced to work with Lex Luthor in order to take on Leviathan. The DEO is now public, it’s run by Luthor Corp, and Lex wants Lena to work with him in order to accomplish her goals. There was also a bit of a Crisis on Infinite Brainiac 5s kind of situation that went down, but the biggest upset there was his breakup with Nia Nal.
While the Girl of Steel seems to have faced the biggest ramifications, that doesn’t mean she’s alone. Kate Kane’s sister came back from abroad this week. Not of the Alice variety, but the honest to gods Beth Kane. So, y’know, some minor complications in Gotham. New-to-the-Verse Black Lightning experienced some minimal changes, with the late Lady Eve coming back from the dead and The Resistance finding itself more fortified than it had been before.
Arrow’s ending might be right around the corner, but they weren’t excluded from the after-effects either. We already saw baby Sara’s return after Flashpoint wiped her out years ago. What we didn’t see is that Dinah Drake was somehow thrown into the future after Oliver Queen’s funeral, or that Mia Smoak Queen would find herself with a perfect, socialite life. As for the Legends of Tomorrow, well, things are just as zany with them as it’s always been. But those who experienced Crisis or were brought up to speed by Martian powers are still currently the only ones to remember it no matter what the city.Out and Proud
Batwoman had a lot...
The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.
In this edition, stuntmen react to some of the action sequences pulled off in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Supercop and The Gate. Plus, Patrick H Willems returns with a video essay about why The Mask of Zorro with Antonio Banderas is great, and King of the Hill voice actress Pamela Adlon improvises voices for new animated characters.
First up, the gang at Corridor Crew sit down with stuntwoman Amy Johnston to break down some of the action sequences she was involved with for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Plus, they take a look at fight sequences from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, and The Gate, not to mention staring in awe at the dangerous stunts of Jackie Chan’s modern classic action movie Supercop.
Next up, Patrick H Willems delivers a surprising video essay that has plenty of compliments for The Mask of Zorro starring Antonio Banderas, Anthony Hopkins, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. He boldly says the movie might be the best reboot of an iconic character. Zorro may not be a superhero in the conventional sense, but this flick certainly has the makings of a superhero movie.
Finally, you may not know Better Things star Pamela Adlon by name, but you may know her voice as Bobby on King of the Hill, Spinelli on Recess, and Lucky in 101 Dalmatians. But now you can see how she fares with creating cartoon voices for characters that she’s seeing for the first time. Honestly, she makes me want to see shows situated around these characters immediately.

During season 6 of Arrow, there was a point that Oliver didn’t want to be the Green Arrow but he still needed to go on missions. Costume Designer Maya Mani wanted some sort of disguise that feels tactical and cool. The goggle was initially conceptualized for Diggle before he was become full Spartan. I think in the end we ended up with something much simpler and less customized. @cw_arrow @stephenamell #greenarrow #oliverqueen #mayorqueen #tactical #season6 #concept #illustration #costume #design
