The Weekly Nerd 23

Movies, Movies, Movies!!

This week was a crazy week for movie news and I think it’s going to dominate the article. I’ll start with some pretty huge news coming out of the Disney Camp this week. Disney has confirmed its full slate of movies through to 2020, includeing a number of untitled live-action fairy-tale movies, and 3 Marvel movies after Infinity War 2.

We also had an announcement of an Ant-Man sequel which has some significance. It is the first movie in the MCU to name a woman in its title. Obviously, with Agent Carter already entrenched in its silver screen runs, the Wasp isn’t the first woman to hold a title, but she is the first to hold a big-screen title. Here are the upcoming titles for the entire Disney lineup broken down by year:

Lets hope that Disney makes a bunch of money through the next couple of years, as news has surface that the Avengers: Infinity War duology is estimated to cost 1 BILLION dollars to produce. Think of the overtly extravagant things that you could do with a billion dollars… now imagine that all going into two movies. While I want to see those movies, it hurts me.

While we are on the topic of slated films, Adi Shankar (Producer of Dredd and The Grey), but most recently known for his bootleg universe films based around The Punisher and Power/Rangers has signed a three-picture, digital project deal with Maker Studios. Shankar’s first film is due out later this year and will be an animated project. The second and third are to be released in 2016. The animated feature will be based around the idea of superheroes in developing countries. I think that will be an interesting premise. Given Shankar’s previous work, I’m sure that it will be quite good.
