'DOCTOR WHO HOLIDAY SPECIAL' TRAILER RELEASED11/29/20 @ 11:17 pm EST
Sony Pictures has today debunked Spider-Man 3
rumors of former Peter Parker actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield joining the Marvel movie cast. Maguire played the wall-crawling superhero in all three of Sam Raimi's movies - Spider-Man
, Spider-Man 2
and Spider-Man 3
- while Garfield took over the role for Sony's reboot of the franchise in 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man
. After Garfield's second turn as Peter Parker, The Amazing Spider-Man 2
, didn't perform as well as expected, Sony struck a deal with Marvel Studios that allowed the latter to introduce Spider-Man to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Tom Holland cast in the role.
This week, rumors circulated online that Maguire and Garfield were either in talks or already locked in to play their respective Peter Parker characters in Sony and Marvel's Spider-Man 3
. However, in a statement to ET Canada
, a representative of Sony Pictures said, "Those rumored castings are not confirmed." Studios don't always comment on casting rumors, but in this case, Sony has debunked the currently circulating rumors about Maguire and Garfield. (via Screen Rant)
Of course, that's not to say things won't change. Sony's statement doesn't indicate whether they're trying to cast Maguire and Garfield, just that it's not confirmed at this time. It's also possible that even if the actors were to officially sign on to the project, their castings would be kept a secret in order to surprise viewers once Spider-Man 3 hits theaters.
Spider-Man: Homecoming 3 from Sony and Marvel Studios is now slated to hit theaters on Dec. 17, 2021.

'THE FLASH' PAUSES PRODUCTION AFTER POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST11/29/20 @ 10:47 pm EST
In May, Big Finish announced that its long-running Doctor Who
audio series would come to an end. That end begins in early 2021 with the 275th installment of the main Doctor Who
audio range, The End of the Beginning
As the series began with a three-Doctor crossover The Sirens of Time
in 1999, it will conclude with a crossover event featuring the four main Doctors who were featured in that audio range: the Fifth Doctor (Peter Davidson), the Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker), the Seventh Doctor (Sylvester McCoy), and the Eighth Doctor (Paul McGann). It should be an appropriately epic ending for the longtime bastion of classic Doctor Who
Here's the synopsis: "The Universe is in a state of crisis, facing destruction from the results of a strange spatio-temporal event. And the Doctor is involved in three different incarnations – each caught up in a deadly adventure, scattered across time and space. The whole of creation is threatened – and someone is hunting the Doctor. The three incarnations of the Doctor must join together to confront their implacable pursuer – but in doing so will they unleash a still greater threat?" (via ComicBook
)The End of the Beginning
releases in March 2021.

Many unthinkable things have happened this year because of COVID-19 and today we find another. The Denver Broncos are schedule to play the New Orleans Saints this morning, but the team has no active quarterbacks on the roster. And if you've ever seen a football game, or even a football related movie, you probably know that the quarterback is kind of an important position.The three quarterbacks they have on the team, Drew Lock, Brett Rypien and Blake Bortles all came in contact with a player who has tested positive for the cornavirus. Though the team hasn't named the player, its believd to be reserve quarterback Jeff Driskle who was placed on the teams reserve/COVID-19 list this week. Now the team tried to petition the league to allow them to use one of their coaches, Rob Calabrese as the starter, but the NFL denied the request. That leaves them their "emergency quarterback", running back Royce Freeman or a wide received on the practice squad named Kendell Hinton who played some quarterback in college at Wake Forest. It's not the first time a team has had to go without a quarterback. Back in 2006 the Carolina Panthers had a game where the ran the Wildcat Formation (baically using a runningback in place of a quarterback) for almost the entire game because of injuries and the won. So it's not impossible... but it is unlikely and Vegas halted the betting on the game. It should be interesting to watch. #SAVEDAREDEVIL TRENDS AS RIGHTS HAVE RETURNED11/29/20 @ 12:26 pm EST

PETITION TO REPLACE AMBER HEARD ON AQUAMAN 2 REACHES 1.5 MILLION11/29/20 @ 12:11 pm EST
Marvel Studios were scheduled to get the rights back to Daredevil today after the character's successful three season run on Netflix. To go with the return, the hashtag #SaveDaredevil is being used by fans to encourage (read: beg) the studio and head cheese Kevin Feige to put the series back into production. Part of the arraingement with the streaming service was a two-year moratorium on using the character in a series/movie after it was cancelled... that ends today.The series wasn't the first time the character had been brought to live-action. He was once portrayed by Rex Smith in the 1989 TV Movie, Trial of the Hulk and then again in the Ben Affleck lead feature film from 2003. But the 2015 debut of Charlie Cox in the role of Matt Murdock was a huge hit with fans and helped grow the original programing at Netflix along with it's companion series: Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Punisher and the Defenders. All of which have been cancelled by the streaming service.Actors from the series seem eager to return including Vincent D'Onofrio who plays the series big bag, Wilson Fisk. D'Onofrio has talked about it many times on his social media and even hinted that he would like to bring the character into the films as the Kingpin is often battling with Spider-Man. Hopefully Feige and the powers that be at Marvel Studios are checking their Twitter accounts today.

*** SPOILERS for the latest episode of The Mandalorian ****
In the latest episdoe of the Disney+ series, The Mandalorian, we saw the live-action debut of the fan favorite character Ahsoka Tano played by Rosario Dawson. The character first appeared in the animated The Clone Wars series co-created by Dave Filoni, who also co-created The Mandalorian and both directed and wrote this weeks episode. The former Jedi also appeared in another animated series, Star Wars: Rebels that Filoni was behind. And while they'd been setting up Din Djarin taking the child (now named Grogu) to a Jedi, the appearance of Ahsoka Tano may mean something much bigger.The episode felt like a back-door pilot and that was driven home the most when she declined to train Grogu and sent them on their way. That, and the name drop she did at the end of the episode. The reason she was on Corvus in the first place was to get a lead on one of the biggest villains in Star Wars, Grand Admiral Thrawn. While they are building up Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) for this series and connecting him to Mandalor and the Dark Saber, Thrawn would overshadow all of that if he were to be brought into this series. But making him the big bad of an Ahsoka Tano series would make a lot of sense.Whether the character shows up in either series leads to the important question, who should play the Chiss strategist? Well, one of the popular choices is the man who voiced the character in the Rebels series, actor Lars Mikkelsen. The actor has appeared in many popular series including facing off against Benedict Cumberbatch's Sherlock and Henry Cavill's Witcher.Ironically another popular name that keeps coming up is Lars' older brother Mads Mikkesen, who also crossed paths with Cumberbatch, but as Doctor Strange and when up again Daniel Craig's James Bond. And while Mads may be too busy now having just signed on to portray Grindelwald replacing Johnny Depp, I think Lars is a more likely option with him already beeing in the Star Wars family. And while they went with Dawson to play Ahsoka over Ashley Eckstein who voiced her in the animated films, they did bring in Katee Sackhoff to play Bo-Katan Kryze after having voiced her in the past. If the episode was indeed a back-door pilot, then we can expect to hear something about a new series soon.
