Over various interviews and a few tweets Dave Boutista has confirmed he will no longer play Drax the Destroyer in the MCU after Guardians Volume 3. He feels like Drax's story is wrapping up now that Thanos, the murderer of his family, is dead, as well as being exhausted with the makeup process. Via some banter with Dave on Twitter, James Gunn has essentially confirmed they are still on great terms and it has nothing to do with the studio or others in the creative process. Dave is just tired.

Marvel Studios' first animated series, What If...? is reportedly arriving on Disney+ this summer. The series is an anthology series based on the comic book series of the same name and will feature various retellings of events from the MCU with a different outcome. The series has already teased plotlines like, what if Peggy Carter got the super-soldier serum, or what if Steve Rogers was a zombie.
The series will feature Jeffrey Wright as the voice of Uatu the Watcher, who will serve a similar role to Rod Sterling in The Twilight Zone, a narrator guiding the viewer through the various stories. The series will also feature various actors from the MCU returning to reprise their roles, including Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, and the late Chadwick Boseman in his final portrayal as T'Challa. It is the fourth television project in Phase 4 after WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki.
Legendary has closed a deal for Regina King to direct and produce the feature adaptation of Bitter Root, the acclaimed Image Comics series created by David F. Walker & Sanford Greene and indie veteran Chuck Brown. King will also produce with Reina King via their Royal Ties banner, alongside Ryan Coogler, Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian of Proximity Media. Walker, Greene, Brown and Drapetomedia’s Sean Owolo will executive produce. Bryan Edward Hill is currently rewriting the draft.
The story is set during the vibrant Harlem Renaissance of 1924, when a fractured family of once-great monster hunters faces an unimaginable evil that descends upon New York City. For generations, the Sangeryes have hunted and cured those infected by a supernatural force that feeds off the prejudice of the era, transforming human beings into hideous monsters. With most of the family dead, and the surviving Sangeryes at odds between saving or killing the creatures, they must overcome the wounds of the past in the hopes of thwarting an invasion.
The acclaimed series received nominations for a 2019 Eisner Award for Best New Series and a 2019 Ringo award for Best Series.
Dark Horse Books has announced that it will publish a new edition of the original Halo graphic novel later this year on August 11th. This marks the first time that the collection of comics has been in print in over a decade and the first time that Dark Horse Books has published it at all given that the original was first published by Marvel Comics in partnership with Bungie.
The graphic novel includes four different stories set in the Halo universe. Artist Simon Bisley and writer Lee Hammock's "The Last Voyage of the Infinite Succor," mangaka Tsutomu Nihei's "Breaking Quarantine, "Armor Testing" from Ed Lee, Andrew Robinson, and Jay Faerber, and Brett Lewis and artist Jean "Moebius" Giraud's "Second Sunrise Over New Mombasa."
Halo Graphic Novel was originally published in 2006 by -- as noted above -- Marvel Comics in collaboration with original Halo developer Bungie. Marvel went on to publish other Halo comics, but as of late, Dark Horse has been home to the Halo comics. As noted above, the Halo Graphic Novel is set to release on August 11th for $19.99. It is available to pre-order now wherever such things are sold.
