As rumors swirled around of Spider-Man 3 casting Daredevil actor Charlie Cox to reprise his role from the Netflix series, ComicBook.com has learned that the actor was indeed on the set for the Marvel Studios movie. Cox is expected to be playing Matt Murdock in the film alongside Tom Holland's Peter Parker, though at this point it is unclear if it will be the same version of Daredevil than many fans know and love from the Defenders series on Netflix or if it's some sort of multiversal reboot. Considering the inclusion of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, it's possible that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be making major changes to Cox's Daredevil in the future

The legendary face-off between Godzilla and King Kong will be arriving a little sooner than expected as Warner Bros. have announced that the release date of Godzilla vs. Kong will leap forward two months from May 21st to March 26th. As we've certainly become accustomed to seeing release dates getting pushed back over the past year, this is a refreshing change, especially for a highly anticipated film.
Legendary Entertainment and Warner Bros. recently reached a settlement after Legendary was left surprised following Warner's announcement that they would be releasing their entire 2021 slate in theaters and on HBO Max. As Legendary had put a significant amount of money into Godzilla vs. Kong (as well as Denis Villeneuve's Dune), the company was worried that a streaming debut would put a large dent into any money they would receive. The details of the settlement aren't known at this time, but it would seem that both parties are now satisfied. With the release of Godzilla vs. Kong now just over the horizon, I would hope that we'll finally get to see a trailer for the film.
Here's the official logline for Godzilla vs. Kong: "In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever." The film, which stars Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler, Alexander Skarsgard, Rebecca Hall, Brian Tyree Henry, Zhang Ziyi, Demian Bichir, and Julian Dennison, will now hit theaters and HBO Max on March 26, 2021.

The Fast and Furious Saga is finally drawing to a close. In an interview with EW, Vin Diesel, who stars in the franchise as Dom aka Dominic Toretto, confirmed that the current plan is to end things on a high note with Fast & Furious 10 split into two parts.
"Even as far back as 2012, 2013, it was something that Pablo [Walker] and I would discuss, finishing on the 10th one. That just always felt right. And being a part of the Marvel franchise, seeing that possibility that when you have that much story you can end with two films. It was something that we'd talked about that became real. It's just been such a wonderful, wonderful run, and we'd always envisioned that 10 would be the farewell, the finale, and that is what our story is working towards."
However, just because the main story is ending does not mean the franchise is running out of gas (ba dum tss!). The series will continue with multiple spinoffs that will expand the world of Dom's allies and enemies, such as the Hobbs and Shaw film that has an upcoming sequel planned, and the all-female spinoff movie focussing on the character of Letty Ortiz, played by Michelle Rodriguez.

Last week, the Punisher made headlines following the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol. Several people who stormed the building were seen sporting the Punisher's skull logo, with many images making their way online. As a result, Marvel is under pressure to retire the Punisher's logo, with some saying the character himself should no longer be used as well. A few prominent people in the comics industry spoke out about it
John Bernthal, the most recent actor to portray the Punisher in live-action, expressed his feelings on the matter. Bernthal retweeted a piece of fan art celebrating the character. He then echoed the artist's sentiment by saying the rioters "have nothing to do with what Frank stands for or is about."
