Marvel Phase 4 Plans Include “Blade” Reboot, “Thor 4” and more

Published

on

What an exciting time for Marvel fans! The studio announced that a number of new projects are in the works and will be released over the next two years, including the sequel to Black Panther and Blade reboot.

The news of Blade's return caught many by surprise, as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige brought two-time Oscar winner Mahershala Ali to the stage to make the announcement. Ali received a hearty welcome as he revealed the news by putting on a hat that read “Blade”. No release date was announced. As a reminder, it's been 15 years since the final installment of the Blade series, Blade Trinity, premiered. The lead role was played by Wesley Snipes.

 

 

While not much was said about Black Panther 2, Feige confirmed that the king of Wakanda will indeed return. The sequel, however, is not as far along as other announced titles. It was previously reported that Ryan Coogler will return to direct.

Keenen Ivory Wayans Will Showrun Season 3 Of “The Last O.G.”

Published

on

Writer, director and producer Keenen Ivory Wayans is joining TBS to serve as showrunner on season three of The Last O.G. starring Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish. He will also direct four episodes of the comedy series. 

“I’m thrilled and excited to be working with such a great cast, team of producers and reuniting with Tracy Morgan,” said Wayans, “Together we’re all going to take the show to the next level.”

Per TBS description, The Last O.G. centers on Tray (Morgan), an ex-con who is shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison for good behavior after a 15-year stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man (Ryan Gaul) who is helping raise the twins (Taylor Mosby and Dante Hoagland) Tray never knew existed. Wanting nothing more than to connect with his kids, but having neither the money to support them nor himself, Tray falls back on the skills he learned in prison to make ends meet while treading unfamiliar territory.

Wayans is best known for creating, executive producing and hosting the influential Emmy-winning sketch comedy series In Living Color. The groundbreaking variety show introduced audiences to a new type of comedy and launched the careers of Jamie Foxx and Jim Carrey, among others. Wayans additional credits include directing White Chicks, Scary Movie and Scary Movie 2.

 TBS has not yet announced a premiere date.
