reports that Marvel Television as we’ve known it the past decade will be no more.
While the four announced animated series at Hulu, the upcoming Helstrom
and last season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
will still be made, the unit is shutting down everything else to join Marvel Studios.
“The decision has been made to complete Marvel TV projects that are currently in production, but not continue with any further development,” noted the TV division Tuesday.
Layoffs are expected with the change in status for the once-burgeoning small screen team, but no definite positions have been identified at present for the chop.
Today’s news follows months of turmoil and uncertainty at Marvel TV with a number of animated and live-action shows teetering or canned, the exit of longtime small screen chief Jeph Loeb and the further expansion of big screen boss Kevin Feige’s fiefdom.

'THE EPIC TALES OF CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS' TRAINS FOR SPACE TRAVEL IN NEW CLIP07/06/20 @ 12:14 pm EST
“I am moving through your dreams…”
We’re just over a week away from the debut of Audible’s ambitious new audio production of The Sandman
and as if we weren’t already too excited to sleep (sorry, Morpheus!), we now have the official cover art and an enticing new trailer to share with all of you.Just to recap, Neil Gaiman’s acclaimed series of graphic novels will soon be available as an Audible Original adapted and directed by visionary audio producer Dirk Maggs. Gaiman is intimately involved as the project’s Creative Director, Executive Producer and Narrator. Actor James McAvoy will lead the impressive cast as Morpheus along with Kat Dennings as Death, Michael Sheen as Lucifer, Taron Egerton as John Constantine and many, many more. We’ve already gotten one trailer for The Sandman’s
audio production, but Audible has released a brand new one, which features some dramatic, dreamlike visuals along with our first taste of McAvoy in the starring role.
We also have our first look at the production’s cover art. Fans of both the original Vertigo comic series and the bestselling graphic novel collections that followed know that cover art is pretty important when it comes to The Sandman,
so it’s great to see this latest take step up with a breathtakingly cosmic cover image that appropriately reflects the mythic nature of Gaiman’s tale.
Audible’s The Sandman
adapts the first three graphic novels in Gaiman’s series and is due to be released on July 15. That gives you just enough time to pre-order it at Audible.com/TheSandman and to binge read your copies of the books.

is reporting a rumor that a live-action Constantine movie is in development at Warner Bros., with Bad Robot serving as the production company and JJ Abrams attached as a producer. The film will have a similar feel and tone to Bad Robot's other upcoming projects, which include the Justice League Dark
HBO Max show as well as the Zatanna movie.
It is currently unknown whether this will be a soft reboot with Keanu Reeves reprising the titular role, or if this will be a complete reboot with a new actor portraying the character.
This potential development serves as a welcome-back for the character of John Constantine, who has seen his fair share of adaptations. Keanu Reeves was the first to portray the character in live-action in the 2005 film Constantine
, and actor Matt Ryan portrayed the occult detective in his own television series while making appearances on Arrow
and eventually joining the cast of Legends of Tomorrow
