It is possible but it would not surprise me if, at best, tops Shazam! ($367+ million worldwide) or its box office falls somewhere within that one and Shazam! Fury of the Gods ($133+ million worldwide)
Yeah. For the record I was referring to the most recent Shazam film that bombed. I should have been more clear.

Marvel teases Wolverine may have met his match in ‘Predator Vs. Wolverine’​


Benjamin Percy teams up with an all-star lineup of artists in ‘PREDATOR VS. WOLVERINE,’ on sale this September!
Predators have invisibility technology. That would not be a good defense for them against Wolverine. The nose knows.

This story better give them some sort of scent masking technology. Something that prevents Wolverine from smelling them. Otherwise, there is very little reason to imagine Logan not being able to pinpoint their location and take them out.

One-on-one should give the edge to Wolverine. I wonder if this Predator has a healing factor as well?

Maybe just a really good med kit, where something like drywall can be used to patch a gaping injury.

The Blue Beetle opens this coming Friday, .but I admit that I am naive and not familiar with the DC character.

Per research I'm tryin to see to catch on to episode chapters such as Crisis on Infinite Earths and Infinite Crisis per Justice League and Teen Titans " to have
a chance at getting know the Blue Beetle.

I recommend watching several episodes of Young Justice: Invasion season two on the MAX streaming service. Jaime Reyes and The Reach are central to the entire season, so a very good description of him, his techno armor with capabilities, origin and background are shown.

David Harbour says the entire ‘Black Widow’ ending was changed during filming

By Charlotte Simmons | We Got This Covered
August 17, 2023


When it comes to superhero movies, the space can get a bit divisive: whether it’s Marvel versus DC, Gunn versus Snyder, or simply shills versus contrarians, superhero movie fandoms are places to avoid if you’re averse to conflict.

But if there was any common ground to be found in such a zeitgeist, it would have to be criticizing the third act, where malevolent CGI armies continue to be an invasive species as studios take hacksaw after hacksaw to just about every ending so as to make them cinema-friendly and compatible with its corresponding shared universe.

Maybe I'm not as critical of Black Widow as some are, because I liked it. The seemingly 15 minute fall to Earth at the end was a bit unrealistic, but most of the MCU is unrealistic.

As for the changing of the third act, I imagine they have much of that already prepared, just in case of script leaks. So I doubt everything is just on the fly changes.

I thought it was a great movie. The sister and her father were terrific characters. Loved watching her sister make fun of the action movie stance, and the heavy vodka drinking Russian father. LOL

Problem with that movie is the bad luck on its release date. No one knew what the hell to do, at first, during the "P-word." That's all businesses, not just movies.

It's box office was the consequence. Low box office doesn't mean bad movie. These Marvel movies are judged too much by their box office success. I liked Antman 3 too -- much better than Dr.Strange 2 -- but apparently because it made less than Dr Strange 2, it's a worse movie.

Another point about changed endings, audience polls, re-shoots, etc... Those are all common in the business now. It used to be the kiss of death for a bad movie prediction, but there are several examples in recent years where it actually helped. Hollywood execs getting a little smarter I guess.

My favorite version is when he showed up in the Justice League and palled around with Booster Gold.

You hit it on the nail, @Stash. I waited to see if Blue Beetle might rebound in the worthwide market but it's box office imploded. $81,808,690 (link) since it hit theaters.
Another questionable decision by Warner Bros to green light this film, as well as Batgirl and jumping into a Shazam sequel. Meanwhile, Henry Cavill can’t get another Superman film?

And once again, they were wrong.

I’m also not entirely sold on James Gunn’s plans but will try to be optimistic and keep an open mind.

Disney+ Cancels Already-Filmed TV Show, Tries To Sell To Other Services

By Abdullah Al-Ghamdi | Screen Rant
August 28, 2023

shazad-latif-in-star-trek.jpg


Disney+ is canceling another completed series, Nautilus, as the show's production company looks for a new home. Based on the Jules Verne novel 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and consisting of ten parts, Nautilus is a live-action show about the origins of Captain Nemo and his famous submarine The Nautilus. In the Disney+ retelling, Star Trek: Discovery's Shazad Latif would have played Nemo.

Deadline now confirms that Disney+ will not be moving forward with Nautilus. The decision is part of the company's ongoing streaming content removal plan, as Disney announced in February that it plans to cut $3 billion across the company in terms of its spending on non-sports programming. The retelling of Captain Nemo has already been filmed. Disney+ is reportedly working with the production team to find a new home for Nautilus, with meetings underway. The news follows the cancelation of The Spiderwick Chronicles, which is also completed and being shopped around.

I guess they decided it wasn't worth the air-time for them and want to see if someone else wants to buy it to recoup some of the losses in making it before turning it into a tax writeoff. Or someone on that show pissed a high level executive off enough to kill the show.
