DISNEY AND PIXAR CRASHED BY EVEL KNIEVEL'S SON IN 'TOY STORY 4' LAWSUIT09/25/20 @ 9:42 am EST
When we last saw Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Far From Home,
his world had been turned upside down by the posthumous actions of Mysterio, framing the webhead for the attack on London and publicly revealing his secret identity. Come Spider-Man 3
then, Peter will need a heck of a lawyer on his side in order to get him out of this nightmare. Luckily, there’s already an adept attorney with an understanding of superhero life running around the MCU.We Got This Covered
has previously reported that Marvel had been considering either Daredevil or She-Hulk to serve as Peter’s lawyer in the Far From Home
sequel. Our latest intel, however, points to the studio having decided on having Charlie Cox turn up as Matt Murdock in the movie rather than Jennifer Walters, who will make her debut in the upcoming She-Hulk
Though Netflix cancelled DD
in 2018, Marvel is expected to bring back all the major cast members for some sort of revival of the TV series – either on FX or Hulu – with Cox also making appearances in the wider franchise, apparently including SM3.
As always, though, as we’re still a while away before the pic goes into production, do plans can always change. Spider-Man 3
is locked in for release on July 16th, 2021. As such, filming should begin on the movie sometime this year.

'BATWOMAN' SEASON 2 SET PHOTOS: FIRST LOOK AT JAVICIA LESLIE AS RYAN WILDER09/25/20 @ 9:33 am EST
Evel Knievel once said that he “would always rather be in the arena fighting than be a spectator.”
The legendary stunt rider’s son is clearly taking those words to heart with a new lawsuit against Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar over the Duke Caboom character introduced in last year’s Toy Story 4
“Defendants have used in commerce, and continue to use in commerce, the likeness, reputation, and image of Evel Knievel in the film Toy Story 4
through Defendants’ depiction of Duke Caboom, and has exploited the same connection through marketing, promotion, advertising, and sales of Toy Story 4
, and in connection with the manufacturing, distribution, marketing, advertising, promotion, and sales of the Duke Caboom action figure, all without the consent or approval of K&K,” claims the trademark infringement complaint filed on September 22 in federal court in Las Vegas, the site of many of Evel’s most death-defying exploits (READ IT HERE
“As a direct and proximate result of Defendants’ unlawful appropriation of Evel Knievel’s rights of publicity, K&K has suffered, and will continue to suffer, monetary damages to its business, reputation, and goodwill,” the jury trial seeking action from the self-described Last Gladiator’s son and K and K Promotions boss Kelly Knievel goes on to say of the Keanu Reeves-voiced character in the movie.
“The claims are without merit and we intend to defend against them vigorously in court,” a spokesperson for the Pixar-owning House of Mouse said today. (via Deadline

'THE SIMPSONS' VOICE CAST DIVERSIFIES FOR SEASON 32 DEBUT09/25/20 @ 9:14 am EST
News of productions and casting for various Marvel Studios shows has been pouring out over the past few weeks. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki are seemingly all rolling cameras again, and even Hawkeye has their ball rolling with casting calls for its villains and underlings. However, the one show that has seen the least amount of traction since being announced last year is Moon Knight.
But now, Marvel Studios is beginning to build their Moon Knight supporting cast around their Marc Spector (Moon Knight's alter ego... or one of them).
The Direct reports that Marvel Studios is casting for two main roles for their Moon Knight series.
While it's not yet confirmed who these two characters are, sources say that one character the studio is casting for is Jean-Paul DuChamp (aka "Frenchie"), the best friend of Marc Spector: 20-40 (years old), White male. A stereotypical good looking, overly enthusiastic, less intelligent than average but still lovable. Actor must be fluent in French.
The second role is for a character who is likely Marlene Alraune -- a love interest of Marc Spector: 20-35 (years old), all ethnicities, female. A manipulative operative in a secret organization, capable of going from cool and tough to warm and friendly in a heartbeat.

The SimpsonsA BRAND NEW LOOK AT 'JO & RUS' FROM BOOM! STUDIOS09/25/20 @ 9:09 am EST
is following through on its pledge to have non-white actors voice characters of color on the show.
The Fox series will feature Alex Désert (The Flash, Better Things
) voicing Carl Carlson, Homer's (Dan Castellaneta) nuclear plant co-worker, in Sunday's season premiere. Hank Azaria had played the part for nearly the show's entire run prior to that.
What's unclear is whether Désert will continue in the role. A statement from the show reads, "We are very pleased to welcome Alex Désert, playing Carl in the Simpsons
season premiere." Reps for The Simpsons
declined further comment.
The casting of Désert — at least for this episode — makes good on a June statement from Simpsons
producers that "Moving forward, The Simpsons
will no longer have white actors voice non-white characters."
The change came as the industry faced a reckoning over its record of inclusivity in the face of widespread social and racial justice protests over the summer. Animated series including Netflix's Big Mouth
and Apple's Central Park
also made moves to recast BIPOC characters with actors of color, and Family Guy
regular Mike Henry said he would no longer voice the character of Cleveland Brown, who's Black, on the show. (via THR
