BREAKING: DISNEY-SONY STANDOFF ENDS MARVEL STUDIOS AND KEVIN FEIGE'S INVOLVEMENT IN 'SPIDER-MAN'08/20/19 @ 4:31 pm EST
A galaxy far, far away got a bit bigger Sunday as Star Wars fans got a first look at The Mandalorian
Disney debuted four new stills and roughly three minutes of teaser footage showing Pedro Pascal’s Mandalorian warrior, Carl Weathers’ character Greef Carga, and Gina Carano’s character Cara Dune during the Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.
Pascal’s titular character is modeled after iconic bounty hunters Jango and Boba Fett from the earlier trilogies. He travels the outer reaches of the galaxy alone, far away from the laws of the New Republic.
The panel revealed that Carano’s character, Cara Dune, is an ex-Rebel Shock Trooper, while Weathers’ Greef Carga is the head of a guild of bounty hunters.
The series is set between “A New Hope” and “The Force Awakens,” sometime after the fall of the Empire and before the rise of the First Order.
The series will premiere on Nov. 12, the launch date of the Disney+ streaming service. (via Variety

Deadline'JOKER' DIRECTOR SAYS THE MOVIE COULD GET A SEQUEL08/20/19 @ 3:00 pm EST
is reporting exclusively that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man
films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward.
A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, the site reports.
There is a lot of webbing here, but it all comes down to money. Disney asked that future Spider-Man films be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios, and there were discussions that this might extend to other films in the Spider-Man universe. Sony turned that offer down. Led by Tom Rothman and Tony Vinciquerra, Sony just simply didn’t want to share its biggest franchise. Sony proposed keeping the arrangement going under the current terms where Marvel receives in the range of 5% of first dollar gross, sources said. Disney refused.
Sources said Disney’s top brass for the past several months has sought new terms for Feige and the Marvel cross-pollination to continue. As the Spider-Man relationship grew, Feige and Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman spoke about the possibility of a wider involvement in the Sony-controlled Spider-Man universe, which contains 900 characters.
No comment to Deadline's report from Marvel/Disney, Feige or Sony Pictures.

Joker is a first for DC Films as it’ll break out of the continuity of the DCEU and tell its own standalone take on the Clown Prince of Crime’s origins, untethered to any need to start or continue a franchise. Well, at least that’s what we thought.NEW 'RAMBO: LAST BLOOD' TRAILER RELEASED08/20/19 @ 2:49 pm EST
Director Todd Phillips has now revealed that he’s not ruling out following up Joker with a sequel. With one stipulation, that is: leading man Joaquin Phoenix has to return.
In an interview, Phillips was asked about the chances of a Joker 2. The director didn’t commit to anything, obviously, but did make clear that if all of the elements aligned so that the opportunity was there, he’d definitely hop back in the saddle to make another. (via We Got This Covered)
But first, we need to see how Joker fares when it hits theaters on October 4th.
