As you just saw, I was talking to Kevin Feige, and thanks to Kevin and Robert Downey Jr. and Drew Pearce and Shane Black, I am in this movie and I’m a member of the Marvel family, because their welcome on Iron Man 3 was so astonishing and generous that I’m still with Marvel again. And I’m delighted to be here!
Here’s a new poster for the upcoming Marvel film that’s more credits than it is anything else.

During a recent interview with Total Film (via Games Radar), producer Barbara Broccoli shut down the idea of there ever being a James Bond television series.
We make films. We make films for the cinema. That’s what we do.
In another recent interview with Total Film (again, via Games Radar), Oscar Isaac intriguingly stated the Moon Knight series “doesn’t follow the same logic of what a lot of superhero films do.”
It’s not so much about the genre of things. It’s the people. And is there room to do something interesting in it? And sometimes there is, and you think there will be. And sometimes it turns out there isn’t. So with this – I love the people involved. I thought there was an incredibly unusual story to tell within the world of, you know, the superhero language. But we’re making something that’s quite different, and that doesn’t follow the same... not necessarily even logic of what a lot of superhero films do. I think because of that, I just found an opportunity to do something that I’ve not done at all yet, and to have a lot of creative collaboration with the rest of the people making it.
