It’s been one busy week in the Marvel multiverse, thanks to the release of The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special last weekend and the deployment of some mind-blowing new trailers in the days since. And this seven-day stretch has today ended on a suitably exciting note as an MCU fan-favorite raises hopes for a dream crossover to come in a couple of years while rumors of Conan the Barbarian, the T-800, and Mr. Universe himself Arnold Schwarzenegger boarding the franchise are officially addressed.
Charlie Cox is confident the world is ready for Daredevil to show up in Deadpool 3

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever editor reveals if a Doctor Doom cameo was ever entertained
Not so long ago half the internet seemed convinced that Doctor Doom was going to show up in the post-credits scene of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Obviously, that didn’t turn out to be the case, but was a role for the ruler of Latveria in the Ryan Coogler-directed sequel ever on the cards? Well… no. Editor Mike Shawver has finally put all the speculation to bed by maintaining that Doom was never going to appear in the movie as the production team wanted the film to remain very “self-contained.” So now we know.
