According to the outlet, “a script is completed” and “production is ramping up” while the studio hopes to have “director news in the coming months.”
Spider-Man: No Way Home
Andrew Garfield denied once more that he appears in Spider-Man: No Way Home during a recent guest appearance on The Today Show.
Listen, I’m not in the film. I love Spider-Man, I always have, I was so happy to have played the part. I’m so excited to see what they do with the third one. Just like you are, to be honest. That’s not the diplomatic answer, I really, really mean it. I love Tom Holland, I love [director] Jon Watts, I love [producers] Amy Pascal and Kevin Feige, and what they’ve done with those movies and that character. It’s an important character to me. So I’m just really excited to see what happens in the third one, as you guys are.
Vincent D’Onofrio also denied he reprises his role as Daredevil’s Wilson Fisk.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

In a recent interview with Games Radar, Hawkeye director Rhys Thomas confirmed the Disney+ series is “definitely a standalone thing.”
I can’t speak to that. But yes, we know their past, and obviously what happened in Endgame. We know in these first two episodes that Clint’s dealing with the fallout of that. But in terms of how they meet, I can’t – I’ll just pretend I don’t know. Imagine it’s a happy meeting, where they talk over coffee and work things out.
It’s definitely a standalone thing in that we have this Christmas setting, and this very fixed timeframe story. But it being the MCU, of course, it all connects in some way as well. And we’ve got new characters, and this was teed up at the end of Black Widow as well. And so everything is always a nice entry point. But I think for the most part, the story is its own little world.
In a separate interview with Murphy’s Multiverse, producer Trinh Tran discussed how Fra Frees’ Clown will differ from her comic book counterpart.
I can’t say much about how his character unfolds in this series, but what I can say is that part of the interesting thing about bringing these characters to life from the comics is that we wanted to give it a fresh spin. I think part of Kazi’s story in the comics is a little bit tied to how Kate’s world is in the Matt Fraction run. But that’s not necessarily true in the MCU because once we bring that character in and explore them in the story that we have, it can go in any and all kind of direction.
