Hoarder of Fantasy Books and Stephen King Wannabecan be described as a heavy-metal pop culture geek, like a weird combination of Supernatural's Sam and Dean Winchester. She enjoys reading horror and fantasy novels when she isn't writing about the different fandoms around the world.

There is little doubt that fans are expecting the X-Men to show up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe sometime in the future. But who will play Professor X when that time finally comes? James McAvoy has spoken up about the possibility of returning as Charles Xavier in the future MCU reboot.
McAvoy has already proven that he was perfect as the young Professor X, portraying the character's pains and heartbreaks with great intensity. Needless to say, fans want to see more of his version of the mutant in the MCU.
But is McAvoy open to the idea of continuing to play Professor X in the MCU? The Sandman audio drama star told Collider that he felt like he was already done with the role.
"I feel like, yeah," McAvoy said. "I feel like I got to explore, not everything I wanted to explore, because there's always more, surely, but I got to explore a ton of Professor X, and I feel quite satisfied with what I got out of him as a performer."
He then pointed out that this doesn't mean he would say no if he was asked to return as Professor X.
"It's not to say that you don't ever want to, you never want to come back, and you never want to do it again, and all that kind of stuff," McAvoy said. "You never say never, as I believe James Bond once said. But I'm not chomping at the bit. I'm not going to be gutted and desperately sad if it never happens again."
It would be great to see McAvoy's version of Professor X again in the future. However, it might be best not to hold your breath considering that there is a chance that the character will be recast in the MCU. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

There is little doubt that fans are worried about the Black Panther franchise after Chadwick Boseman's unfortunate passing. However, Andy Serkis is confident that there will be more movies and related projects after the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Serkis played a minor yet important role in the first movie as Ulysses Klaue. Unfortunately, the character was killed by Eric Killmonger to gain the trust of the Wakandans.
His Marvel Cinematic Universe character might be dead but Serkis still expects great things to happen for the Black Panther franchise. Speaking to io9, the Lord of the Rings star pointed out that there is still so much to explore about T'Challa's kingdom.
"Wakanda as a world, as a place, as a philosophy is such an extraordinary thing," Serkis said. "So I'm really excited to see how it evolves, how it unfolds."
Serkis then addressed Boseman's passing but assured fans that the sequel will find a way to pay tribute to its original star.
"Obviously, it's very, very sad in the wake of [Boseman's] departure, but I'm sure that the story will go some way to memorialize such an extraordinary performance and such an incredible actor and person in that movie," Serkis said.
Wakanda Forever is just the first of many Black Panther-related content from Marvel. It has already been confirmed that there will be a spin-off series that will air on Disney+ in the future. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled for release on July 8, 2022.

It looks like Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom will be adding some interesting new characters next year. The highly-anticipated DC Extended Universe sequel has confirmed three new actors as well as the return of another character.
The Hollywood Reporter had previously confirmed that Aquaman 2 will be adding Vincent Regan, Jani Zhao, and Indya Moore to its already stellar cast. In addition to that, Randall Park has been confirmed to return as Dr. Stephen Shin in the sequel.
Regan will play Atlan, the legendary King of Atlantis who was originally portrayed by Graham McTavish in the first movie. The character is expected to appear in flashbacks in the film.
Zhao was cast as Stingray, a new character who was created for the sequel. It is unclear if the mysterious new character will be a villain or an ally to Aquaman.

The coolest casting update is Moore's character. It was confirmed that the Pose star will portray Karshon, a villain who actually goes up against Green Lantern Hal Jordan in the comic books. The casting already has fans wondering if Aquaman 2 will introduce Hal into the DCEU.
It is unclear if Moore's version of Karshon will be one of the main villains in Aquaman 2 but it would be interesting to see another shark creature in the DCEU. Fans who have watched The Suicide Squad already fell in love with King Shark and Karshon could be an interesting addition to the DCEU.
Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom also stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Patrick Wilson, Dolph Lundgren, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. The sequel is scheduled for release on December 16, 2022.

People have been waiting for the full trailer for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 for a long time. Although Ufotable has not yet dropped a full trailer, there is a new teaser that actually reveals more footage from the highly anticipated Entertainment District arc.
The new teaser was shared along with the announcement about the new themes that will be featured in the Entertainment District arc. The opening theme is titled Zankyo Sanka (Song of Reverberation) while the ending theme is Asa ga Kuru (Daybreak). Both songs will be performed by Aimer.
The new footage offers a glimpse at the new villain Daki taking on Tanjiro. There is not much to see but we're hoping that there will be more to look forward to in the next few weeks.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 2 will air on October 10 with the Rengoku episode and the Mugen Train story arc. The Entertainment District arc is expected to premiere on December 5.

There is no stopping the Witcher Universe. The original live-action series has just been confirmed for Season 3 and we're getting another anime film after the brilliant The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.
The update was dropped during The Witcher panel at TUDUM. Although there were no details shared about the new anime project just yet, there are speculations that Studio Mir will once again work on the movie.
Toss a coin to our growing Witcher universe! We can officially announce The Witcher Season 3, along with a second anime feature film, and a new Kids and Family series set in the world of The Witcher. pic.twitter.com/E032fDAXYx— The Witcher (@witchernetflix) September 25, 2021
But what can we expect in the new Witcher anime film? There are speculations that it would be a sequel to Nightmare of the Wolf and that would mean the return of Theo James' Vesemir. However, some fans also believe that it would focus on the young (and bald) Geralt of Rivia who appeared in the last few minutes of the first Witcher anime movie.
We love both ideas but it is possible that the new Witcher movie will have nothing to do with the witchers we have already met. There is a possibility that the new film will introduce completely new characters with a certain connection to the witchers. In the meantime, we'll have to wait for Netflix to make another official announcement.
In addition to the second anime movie, Netflix also announced that a kid-friendly project is in the works. The new series will be something for Kids and Family so it will probably wind down on the violence that Witcher fans are already used to.
The Witcher Season 2 will premiere on Netflix on December 17, 2021.

Interestingly, the opening sequence also features brief glimpses at Alex Hassell as Vicious, who at one point gets into a fight with Spike. There is also a shot of Elena Satine's Julia shedding a tear. The best part (for most fans including us) is Ein's happy little face.

Related: Charlize Theron Shares Update on Andy in The Old Guard 2
There is little doubt that fans have great expectations when it comes to The Old Guard 2. But what is Andy's mindset going to be like in the upcoming sequel? Charlize Theron has shared new details about her character's new outlook on life in the new movie.
The Old Guard concluded with Andy, Joe, Nicky, and Nile entrusting Copley with keeping the secrets as they intend to continue with their mission to help humanity. It also looked like Andy had a renewed faith in her existence but will it continue in the sequel?
Theron recently took part in Netflix's TUDUM online event where she discussed The Old Guard 2. The Mad Max: Fury Road star confirmed that her character is feeling more grateful about being alive.
How’s Andy doing in The Old Guard 2? According to Charlize Theron: “For her, obviously not being able to die was a burden, and so how do you then lose the thing that you don’t want and realize that you actually do want it and you should’ve probably been more grateful towards it?” pic.twitter.com/hQ3fjW1sSI— Netflix Geeked is watching #Tudum (@NetflixGeeked) September 25, 2021
“For her, obviously not being able to die was a burden, and so how do you then lose the thing that you don’t want and realize that you actually do want it and you should’ve probably been more grateful towards it?” Theron said.
It would be an interesting change for Andy considering that she was so weary and tired of being alive in the first movie. This means we could see a different side of the character in The Old Guard 2.
The first movie also teased the return of Quynh who catches up with Booker in the last few minutes. This is something to look forward to in the sequel.
The Old Guard 2 is currently in development and has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

It will still be a long wait for Money Heist Season 5 Part 2 but we now have a glimpse at what will happen when the Netflix series returns in December. A new clip teases the Professor's disappearance and it looks like the team has a new dilemma to deal with.
The clip opens with Lisbon revealing to the team that the Professor has disappeared. The announcement is immediately met with confusion and obvious anger from the members. Denver is particularly irked demanding an explanation.
Lisbon tries her best to handle things, telling the team that they need to decide on what to do with the gold. It's not an easy task as everyone is ready to resort to violence.
It all comes down to this. Check this exclusive clip from La Casa de Papel/Money Heist Part 5. Vol 2, premiering December 3! #TUDUM pic.twitter.com/ZXnJDySpRq— Netflix Geeked is watching #Tudum (@NetflixGeeked) September 25, 2021
The clip is explosive in its own way, teasing more action in the second part of Money Heist Season 5. However, fans have also noticed that it looks like Lisbon knows something that the others do not. Will she figure out a way to handle the situation and once again bring the team out to safety?
There is little doubt that the first part of Season 5 concluded on a cliffhanger. Fans were shocked to see what happened to Tokyo but there is also hope that she will continue to play a larger role in Part 2. Needless to say, the truth will be revealed this December.
The first part of Money Heist Season 5 is now streaming on Netflix. The Part 2 episodes will be dropped on the streaming service on December 3, 2021.

It has finally happened. The Demon Slayer Season 2 release date has just been announced and we can finally continue with Tanjiro Kamado's story. However, it looks like the first episode will actually focus on a completely new character. Ufotable has confirmed that the second season will kick off with Rengoku Kyojuro's story arc and fans are loving it.
There is little doubt that people fell in love with Rengoku after the character worked with Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zenitsu, and Inosuke in Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie - Mugen Train. However, fans also felt like the Fire Hashira appeared too briefly in the anime and that Rengoku deserved more screentime.
Luckily, fans are getting exactly what they want. Demon Slayer Season 2 will start with an episode that serves as a prequel to Mugen Train following Rengoku receiving his mission. Episodes 2 to 7 are then set to depict the Mugen Train arc with extra footage and a new theme.
This is amazing news and fans are hyped up for more Rengoku content in Demon Slayer Season 2.
