Hey friends! For several years now we have hosted a weekly Twitter Chat called #MarvelMondays. We decided to take all the awesome news we share there and bring it here to the podcast.
The Weekly Bugle Vol 1
Unlike Marvel Mondays, The Weekly Bugle will feature the latest and greatest in all fandom news, not just Marvel. Without further ado, here is The Weekly Bugle Vol 1.
Thor’s Phase 4 Arc
According to an opinion piece from Screenrant and chatter online, fans have been debating what Thor’s phase 4 arc should be. Some argue that Thor should become the leader of The Avengers while others are leaning towards Captain Marvel.
There are pros and cons to Thor taking the lead and while it makes sense in his story, it also doesn’t. The man, er God, has spent a lot of time and dialogue not being a ruler. But as long as it doesn’t mean Natalie Portman’s Jane takes over we are okay with whatever direction Taika and the MCU is taking Thor.

Shang-Chi Filming Wrapped
Shang-Chi and The Eternals are two films we heard announced, got little tidbits for, and then thanks to 2020 it has been radio silence ever since. However, Shang-Chi has wrapped on filming which has everyone speculating when we could see Simu make his debut in costume.
There’s nothing like the feeling of proving the haters wrong so imma save this one for nine months.— Simu Liu (@SimuLiu) October 25, 2020
Keep doing you in the meantime my dude, and I’ll keep doing me. By which I mean plowing into this box of Tim Tams like it’s the vaccine. #WRAPThoughts https://t.co/tSDTPoBdRR
Shang-Chi Teaser in January with a full trailer to come with Black Widow. That of course is if everything stays the course and we have no further derailments to our precious timeline.
Although we have been wandering the desert of no Marvel, there is an oasis on the horizon. WandaVision is coming this December and the trailer offered so many clues as to what maybe coming down the line for Phase 4.
Including a possible hint at the future of a character in Falcon and The Winter Soldier.
Falcon and The Winter Soldier: US Agent will be called Captain America
Minor spoiler for those who have no read the comics or watched any interviews, US Agent will be using the title Captain America at the start of Falcon and The Winter Soldier. In the comics Wyatt takes the mantle when the government deemed Fury to old and Sam Wilson not the right color. Wyatt was already a government agent and begrudgingly took over as Cap for awhile.
US Agent eventually joins up with other superhero teams including the Thunderbolts and the Dark Avengers. Which is interesting due to the Dark Avengers Easter egg in the WandaVision trailer.
“LITTLE BABY JUNE’S FIRST WORD TICKLES MOTHER”
This is the headline on the newspaper Vision is holding. In the comic books June Covington is a part of the Dark Avengers, using the alias Scarlet Witch.
If you’re curious to see more of Ashley’s trailer breakdown go here:
Finally, the Uncharted film is being made and Tom Holland shared a photo of him as Drake on set. We haven’t played the game before but all video game adaptations make us nervous.
The problem with video game adaptations is they are either excellent or garbage. We are hoping for the former for Tom. One thing that is never garbage? Tom Holland.
Speaking of our favorite Spider-Man, Tom Holland has been spotted in Georgia and posted that he has received the script for Spider-Man 3. He says he won’t spill anything because he has learned his lesson but it’s Tom so we think we will get a little something.
Breaking News: Moon Knight
Rumor has it that Oscar Issac is in talks to play Marc Spector in Moon Knight! Major outlets are reporting this news and although he will most likely deny it, we know how those denials usually go. *cough* Paul Rudd *cough*
