‘No Time To Die’ & ‘The Matrix’ VFX Firm Framestore Opens Doors To Delayed Mumbai Studio
Exclusive: Oscar-winning VFX firm Framestore has opened the doors to its awaited purpose-built studio in Mumbai, India.

The 30,000 square-foot facility, which was initially due to open in 2020 but was delayed by the pandemic, currently houses 120 Indian VFX specialists working across titles such as His Dark Materials (HBO/BBC), The Little Mermaid (Disney) and Spider-Man: No Way Home (Sony). Framestore says it is adding professionals in compositing, tracking and Cfx, and is aiming to reach a 300-person team in early 2022.

The site is located in the Goregaon area of Mumbai in the Nesco It Park of Filmi Nagari. The facility’s phase two build-out aims to double the studio capacity next year.

“Stepping through the doors and feeling the studio crackle with life is a real joy after so much hard work,” said Akhauri P. Sinha, Managing Director Mumbai. “While the pandemic delayed the physical opening we’ve already started to bond as a team,

Loki Season 2 Looking More Likely to Arrive Before Kang's Ant-Man 3 'Debut,' Per Latest Marvel Movie Delays

Loki Season 2 Looking More Likely to Arrive Before Kang's Ant-Man 3 'Debut,' Per Latest Marvel Movie Delays
The latest wave of Marvel movie delays means there is a greater chance for Loki Season 2 to hit our screens before Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror makes his big-screen presence known in the third Ant-Man film.

Majors was long ago cast in Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, which until recently was due to be released on Feb. 17, 2023. But Marvel announced on Monday, along with several other delays, that the third Ant-Man film now won’t arrive until July 28, 2023. With Loki Season 2 expected to start production sometime in 2022 (though possibly not until 2023), it would seem that the trickster’s ongoing small-screen

Walt Disney Studios has shaken up its release calendar for the 2022 slate of Marvel movies and beyond. “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” previously dated for March 25, 2022, has been moved to May 6, which means the sequel starring Benedict Cumberbatch and directed by Sam Raimi will now kick off the summer movie season.

Also delayed is “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the sequel directed by Ryan Coogler, which was previously dated for July 8, 2022 but has now been moved to November 11, 2022, giving the film a posh fall movie season slot.

Thor: Love and Thunder,” previously set for May 6, 2022, will now take the spot from “Black Panther 2” on July 8. “The Marvels,” previously dated for November 11, 2022, has been moved to February 17, 2023. “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” which is now in production, was previously dated for February 17, 2023 but now has been pushed off to July 28, 2023.

Disney Delays ‘Doctor Strange 2,’ ‘Thor 4,’ ‘Black Panther’ Sequel and ‘Indiana Jones 5’

Disney Delays ‘Doctor Strange 2,’ ‘Thor 4,’ ‘Black Panther’ Sequel and ‘Indiana Jones 5’
Marvel fans, prepare to wait a little bit longer to see Doctor Strange, Thor and Black Panther return to theaters.

Disney has delayed release plans for several upcoming films, including “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” from March 25 to May 6, “Thor: Love and Thunder” from May 6 to July 8 and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” from July 8 to Nov. 11. With the “Black Panther” sequel jumping to November, “The Marvels” has been postponed to early 2023 and “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” was bumped from Feb. 17 to July 28, 2023.

Along with the deluge of Marvel delays, Disney has moved the fifth “Indiana Jones” installment back nearly a year. The still-untitled film, starring Harrison Ford as the fedora-wearing, swashbuckling archaeologist, will open on June 30, 2023 instead of July 29, 2022.

The major release date shuffle comes after Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” cemented its place as a pandemic-era box office hit and ahead of “Eternals,

Marvel Movie Shift: ‘Doctor Strange 2’ To Kick Off Summer 2022, ‘Thor: Love And Thunder’ Heads To July & More

Marvel Movie Shift: ‘Doctor Strange 2’ To Kick Off Summer 2022, ‘Thor: Love And Thunder’ Heads To July & More
As Disney/Marvel’s Eternals is being aggressively buzzed to possibly open at $100M, and their co-production with Sony, Spider-Man: No Way Home even more, the Burbank, CA has just shifted their entire Marvel movie theatrical schedule for 2022 and beyond.

Exhibition, no need to be alarmed: This has nothing to do with a change in distribution strategy, I’m informed. It’s all on account of a domino effect that is going on with production and filmmakers. Some titles are contending with finishing scenarios while others are in production. This is how Disney is solving it. Even better, the new Indiana Jones movie was sitting on the same release date as Warner Bros./DC’s Black Adam next year, on July 29, 2022; the movie starring Chris Pratt now moves to June 30, 2023; Independence Day weekend where Universal already has an untitled Illumination movie.

‘The Baby-Sitters Club’ Showrunner and Cast on Creating an Essential Space for Kindness

‘The Baby-Sitters Club’ Showrunner and Cast on Creating an Essential Space for Kindness
One of the best shows of 2020 might not have made too many waves in the mainstream, but that didn’t stop it from garnering a tsunami of praise from both super-fans and TV critics alike. And now, the Netflix original has returned with a second season that might just be better than the first.

Rachel Shukert’s adaptation of “The Baby-Sitters Club” — the beloved youth book series by Ann M. Martin about, well, a club of babysitters — saw its second season drop on Monday, offering a welcome shelter from the storm for any viewers feeling overwhelmed and overworked by the never-ending slog that is 2021.

The series focuses on the titular club made up of seven adolescent girls who struggle with the typical trials of maintaining friends and family, in addition to facing more momentous challenges, including death, divorce, and, yes, even dating. Oh and, of course, doing all of the

Bruce Campbell Won’t Deny Doctor Strange 2 Cameo

Bruce Campbell Won’t Deny Doctor Strange 2 Cameo
Bruce Campbell has partnered with filmmaker Sam Raimi for years. At the beginning of their careers, they worked together on The Evil Dead straight out of college. Much later in Raimi’s blockbuster entertainments, be it the Spider-Man trilogy or Oz the Great and Powerful, Campbell still cameoed. Which makes it strange when the actor grows tightlipped at the mention of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

That Benedict Cumberbatch superhero movie is being directed by Sam Raimi, marking the filmmaker’s first superhero picture since Spider-Man 3 and his first collaboration with Marvel Studios, period. So the movie invariably came up during our conversation with Campbell about The Evil Dead and it’s 40th anniversary. But when we ask the actor whether he’d be interested in doing cameos in superhero movies again now that Raimi’s back in the game, Campbell pauses for a half-second before saying,

‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Post-Credits Scene, Explained: What It Means for the Spider-Verse

‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Post-Credits Scene, Explained: What It Means for the Spider-Verse
[Editor’s note: The following post contains spoilers for both “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” and its post-credits scene.]

Part of the charm and the tension of the Tom Hardy-starring “Venom” franchise has been its relative disinterest in lacing its action with that of both Sony’s own Spider-Man franchise and the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe. Eddie Brock and the alien symbiote (Aka Venom) who infects (and then charms?) him are long-established members of the Spider-Man fracas, both as antagonists and pals. And while both “Venom” and its new sequel “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” mostly exist outside the increasingly convoluted world of both Spidey and his Avengers pals, even these wonderfully zany features have to provide a few nods to the wider world.

And, now two films into the wacky world of “Venom,” it looks like that’s poised to change, at least if the long post-credits (technically a mid-credits) scene in the Andy Serkis-directed feature is to be believed.

Sam Raimi Was Hesitant About Directing ‘Doctor Strange 2’ After ‘Spider-Man 3’s Negative Reception
Even before his “Spider-Man” trilogy, filmmaker Sam Raimi arguably helped jumpstart the superhero genre with his Liam Neeson-starring flick “Darkman.” An R-rated take on the genre, the film came out a year after Tim Burton’s “Batman” and years before popular mature comic book films like “The Crow” and “Blade.”

Hero Nation Podcast: ‘What If?’ EP A.C. Bradley Teases Marvel Animated Series’ Season 2 + The Captain America & ‘West Wing’ Crossover That Never Happened
“I wanted to do Captain America meets West Wing more than anything,” What If… executive producer and head writer A.C. Bradley said today on Deadline’s Hero Nation podcast.

You can listen to our conversation with Bradley here:

“I wanted the walk-and-talks, the full Aaron Sorkin treatment,” Bradley tells us. “It was literally who would be the Josh Lyman? Who would be the C.J. Cregg? We were playing around with it for ages. It was something we did over beers, me and [writer] Matt [Chauncey] because we’re huge Sorkin-heads. But it was the one that hit the cutting-room floor or the idea-room floor. It’s a super talky-episode, there’s not a whole lot of action.”

Hero Nation talked with Bradley about building the first MCU animated series, how she’s dovetailed and complemented the greater MCU, and when she’s found inspiration from the original What If comics and

Guillermo del Toro, James Gunn, and Edgar Wright Reveal Secrets About Their Unmade Movie Scripts

Guillermo del Toro, James Gunn, and Edgar Wright Reveal Secrets About Their Unmade Movie Scripts
Arguably just as interesting as the movies themselves are the behind-the-scenes stories about how the films we love were made. Then there are tales about the scripts that were never produced at all, which provide their own kind of delight for cinephiles. Just have a look at Leigh Brackett’s original script for a little movie called “Star Wars II” or the Roger Corman Fantastic Four movie that could have been or the George Miller-directed Justice League film that was just weeks away from shooting, but for every mythical script that makes the rounds on the internet, there are many more we’ve never heard about at all.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a famous director who doesn’t have a few old screenplays collecting dust in a filing drawer somewhere. Even legendary director Stanley Kubrick still has a Napoleon movie waiting to be made. And let’s

"Doctor Voodoo" 'Sorcerer Supreme' ?

Marvel Studios live-action "Doctor Strange" sequel, "Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness", will include 'Jericho Drumm', aka 'Doctor Voodoo', who will spin off into his own Disney+ TV series, plus reportedly take over the mantle of 'Sorcerer Supreme' following the upcoming Marvel Comics death of 'Stephen Strange':

"... debuting in Marvel's "Strange Tales #169 (1973), created by writers Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, Len Wein and illustrator John Romita Sr., 'Jericho Drumm' returned to his native Port-au-Prince, Haiti, after 12 years of education and practice as an accredited psychologist in the US, where he discovers his twin brother, 'Daniel Drumm', the local 'houngan', is dying, a victim of a voodoo sorcerer who claims to be possessed by the spirit of the serpent-god 'Damballah'.

Benedict Cumberbatch Says ‘Doctor Strange 2’ Will Challenge ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ as ‘Most Ambitious Superhero Film’
Benedict Cumberbatch has embarked on a year most stars can only dream about. The Oscar-nominated actor will appear in four films in 2021. Cumberbatch, who earned raves for his performance in Dominic Cooke’s “The Courier” earlier this year, was the man of the hour at the Telluride Film Festival, where two of his movies made their North American debuts: “The Electrical Life of Louis Wain” from Will Sharpe and “The Power of the Dog” from Jane Campion. Later this year, he returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Jon Watts’ “Spider-Man: No Way Home” opposite Tom Holland, before his standalone sequel, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” launches in March 2022.

On this bonus edition of the “Variety Awards Circuit Podcast,” we speak with Cumberbatch about his films, what they mean in his already impressive resume and how the family man keeps his priorities in check. Listen below!

Benedict Cumberbatch Was 'Sad' Marvel And Scott Derrickson Broke Up Over Doctor Strange 2

Benedict Cumberbatch Was 'Sad' Marvel And Scott Derrickson Broke Up Over Doctor Strange 2
There aren't exactly that many underdog movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the most popular franchise on Earth at the moment, that could genuinely be considered "underrated" or "underappreciated." That said, I'll happily go to bat for 2016's "Doctor Strange" as one of the franchise's more sneakily effective solo movies, bringing creative action, a sense of spirituality, and a knowingly (I'll even say refreshingly) unlikable protagonist into a rapidly-expanding world of mysticism and superheroes.

Much of this, of course, came as a result of director Scott Derrickson's unique sensibilities as both an artist and a human being. This only made it all...

Marvel Delayed Diversifying Its Film Lineup for Years; After ‘Shang-Chi,’ There’s Truly No Excuse

Marvel Delayed Diversifying Its Film Lineup for Years; After ‘Shang-Chi,’ There’s Truly No Excuse
The box office’s pandemic-era woes might not be entirely banished, but the massive opening-weekend success of Destin Daniel Cretton’s Marvel Cinematic Universe feature, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings,” has made a sterling case for the return of the of blockbuster. With an estimated four-day gross of over $93 million, the Simu Liu-starring MCU entry handily busted a number of myths: that attention for the franchise is flailing, that audiences won’t turn out in theaters for event films, that tentpoles require established stars to lead them, and that Labor Day is an undesirable release date.

It also proves something that Marvel has long known, but has yet to fully capitalize on: moviegoers are very eager to see “diverse” MCU films starring actors of color and featuring stories rooted in their cultural identities. When Ryan Coogler’s “Black Panther” arrived in theaters in 2018, the film smashed record after record — and,
