WandaVision: Disney Plus show still on track for 2020 release date



WandaVision may be the first Marvel TV series on Disney Plus despite delays caused by the pandemic, according to a new announcement.

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been short of content in 2020. The pandemic halted production on all new content including The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, and What/If. But one show is set to release on the Disney Plus platform—WandaVision.

The limited series following Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Vision (Paul Bettany) was set for release mid-September before the global crisis forced delays on production. With the majority of Disney Plus shows being pushed to 2021, many fans believed that the same fate would befall WandaVision.

But a video from Disney Plus has given fans hope for the show’s 2020 release.

Highlighting the content that is set to be released on the platform this year, the video includes a blink and you miss it frame of Wanda in her iconic comics-accurate super suit.

Despite the lack of new content, the video caption mentions WandaVision as an upcoming show on Disney Plus, which should be clear enough for fans. Additionally, CBR received a press release that confirms WandaVision as being part of the platform’s 2020 releases.

WandaVision: What do we know so far?

Disney Plus has yet to reveal a release date for WandaVision but we can assume that the show will only air in the last quarter of the year—giving Disney and Marvel enough time to complete shooting and post-production.

There is scarce little information available on the show—though we do know that Wanda will be playing a leading role in Doctor Strange 2. It is likely that this series will tie directly into that film.

As for Vision, his involvement in the show is a bit of a mystery. Vision was killed during the events of Avengers: Infinity War, and because his death occurred before Thanos’ snap, he was not brought back to life by the Hulk in Avengers: Endgame.

We can assume that the Vision seen in WandaVision is an alternate reality version of the character—the short trailer of the show certainly seems to suggest that that will be the plot of the series.

According to IMDB, Kat Dennings’ Darcy Lewis—who has not been seen in the MCU since Thor: The Dark World—is also supposed to appear, as is Randall Park’s FBI agent Jimmy Woo from Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Teyonah Parris is listed as Monica Rambeau, daughter of Maria Rambeau, and future Captain Marvel in the Marvel Comics. In 2019’s Captain Marvel, Akira Akbar portrayed the 11-year-old Monica, so Parris’ version in WandaVision could be a post-Endgame Monica or one from an alternate universe.

Marvel and Disney have been tight-lipped about their properties in the past, so it isn’t surprising that there is so little information available about the show.

There is plenty of room for conjecture, but with the show set for release in 2020, fans can finally see whether their guesses will come true.

Tamilrockers leaks download link for London Confidential

Some of the most popular torrent websites in India are Moviesflix, Isaimini and Tamilrockers. It is no doubt that piracy is one of the biggest issues that filmmakers around the globe are tackling right now. Pirate websites like Tamilrockers have hugely affected the box office collection of many movies, as they provide download links for exclusive and copyrighted content online. 

However, recently ZEE5’s new spy thriller film London Confidential became the target for Tamilrockers as the torrent website leaked the London Confidential download link in 1080p Full HD. London Confidential is one of the films released by the Hindi film industry during COVID-19 lockdown. Other films that were released digitally were Sadak 2, Gunjan Saxena, Class of ’83, Gulabo Sitabo, Maska and etc.

However given that Tamilrockers has already leaked the London Confidential download link, there will be less viewership of the film on ZEE5. This is not the first time Tamilrockers has leaked copyrighted and exclusive content illegally. This notorious online portal is responsible for streaming the latest Hindi, Tamil movies and other South language movies such as Malayalam and Telugu.

Jessica Mulroney Addresses Rumors About Her Friendship with Meghan Markle




After a summer of speculation and a two-month social media hiatus, Jessica Mulroney is back on Instagram and tackling rumors about the status of her and Meghan Markle‘s friendship head-on.

In a since-deleted Instagram Story posted to her account on Friday, according to People, Mulroney wrote, “I’m going to tell this once and for all. Meghan and I are family. She is the kindest friend and has checked up on me everyday. Tabloid culture is atrocious. It creates lies and hurtful storyline. Stop feeding into it. Done.”

This clarification appears to be a direct response to articles dating back to June suggesting that the pair’s friendship was on the rocks after Canadian lifestyle blogger Sasha Exeter posted a lengthy Instagram video calling Mulroney out for “textbook white privilege.” A source told Page Six at the time, “I don’t know what the tipping point was, but Jess has been on the outs for some time. Their friendship is definitely not what it was. And really, how can you have such a close friendship when one person is basically making a career out of the friendship?”

This isn’t the first time the celebrity stylist has addressed these rumors about her relationship with the Duchess of Sussex either. Earlier this month, she explained on her Instagram Stories why she had deleted a photo of her son and Markle on her wedding day. “People often ask why I delete certain posts. The amount of bullying and hatred I’ve had to put up with for 3 years….I’m tired of looking at it,” Mulroney wrote. “Be kind. Be gracious. We are grown ups…stop acting like teenagers. Real women don’t put down other women.”

Extra: NZ’s MediaWorks sells TV business to Discovery; Sales for ZDFE, Hat Trick Intl.




Discovery acquires MediaWorks TV

Discovery has inked a deal to acquire MediaWorks TV, the free-to-air television business owned by New Zealand commercial broadcaster MediaWorks.

The transaction is expected to close by the end of the year.

The MediaWorks TV acquisition marks Discovery’s most significant free-to-air investment in the New Zealand market to date, and includes entertainment channels Three and Bravo, streaming service ThreeNow, and multi-platform news and current affairs service Newshub, as well as the further channels Three+1, Bravo+1, The Edge TV and The Breeze TV.

Discovery currently operates a portfolio of six pay-TV channels in the New Zealand market, including Discovery Channel, TLC, Animal Planet, Food Network, Living and Discovery Turbo, as well as free-to-air channels HGTV and Choice TV.

As part of the deal, Glen Kyne has been appointed general manager of TV, a role that will continue under Discovery once the transaction closes.

Discovery’s Australia and New Zealand operations will move under Simon Robinson, president of APAC. Following completion of the sale, Kyne will report to Robinson.

Gareth Codd has been appointed acting commercial director for MediaWorks Group in the interim.

Rebecca Kent, GM of Discovery Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Islands, will continue to oversee the New Zealand pay-TV portfolio and free-to-air channels Choice and HGTV, and the Australia operations.

ZDF Enterprises orders, pre-sells WW2 series

ZDF Enterprises has commissioned the WW2 history series Frontlines from UK indie Impossible Factual.

Prior to completion, the series (pictured) has been sold to Viasat World for Central and Eastern Europe, Russia and CIS, Foxtel in Australia and iPrima (Czech Republic).

The 8 x 50-minute series, to be distributed globally by ZDF, focuses on eight battlefields on the frontlines of the war: Midway, Anzio, Monte Cassino, Omaha, Hill 112, Bastogne, Iwo Jima and Berlin.

Frontlines includes first person testimony, location demonstrations, analysis and storytelling to bring the frontlines to life.

Hat Trick Int’l sells Dinner Date abroad

Indie distributor Hat Trick International has signed deals for the long-running factual entertainment series Dinner Date in South Africa, Australia, Finland and France.

Produced by Hat Trick Productions, the format is now in its 10th series on ITVBe in the UK.

A second season of the show is currently being produced by Seapoint for ZDF in Germany, with COVID-19 health and safety protocols in place. This new season will bring the total number of episodes commissioned in Germany to 60.

The finished program has sold globally to SBS Australia, Roku North America, Discovery Benelux, BBC Lifestyle in Poland and Africa, TVNZ New Zealand and Sky Italia Italy, across all media platforms.

In each episode of Dinner Date, someone is given the chance to find true love over three meals.

A participant will choose three menus from five, put together by five mystery hosts. They then go on the three dates with the “chefs,” who cook them a meal in their own homes. After the dates, all three chefs prepare for a night out at a restaurant, but the participant can only choose one to go with – leaving the other two to have a night in alone with a ready-made meal.
