Disney+ Reportedly Renewing Jon Favreau’s ‘The Mandalorian’ for Season 2

Show the first season? We don’t need to show the stinkin’ first season! You’re renewed! You’re Renewed!…Ok, I know I am mixing my metaphors here, but the point is, it has become relatively common place for shows to be renewed in their early stages. So it might come as no surprise that Disney+ has reportedly planned to renew The Mandalorian for a second season. The new series which is being lead by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book) is set to star Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones, Kingsman: The Golden Circle) in the titular role as a bounty hunter.

Now, in honor of his 80th anniversary, Miller has now shared his thoughts on one of his favorite subjects. Miller took to Twitter to express his feelings about the occasion, writing: “They tell me the old man turns 80 today,

I’m going to try and explain not only why Dr. Strange sacrificed the Time Stone but why he did it for Tony and why he and Scott Lang will be crucial to defeating

However, with its appearance at WonderCon 2019, the preview shown was met with nothing but a positive response as a 10-minute sequence from the first act of Dark Phoenix was shown. After its completion the

Russo’s: ‘Avengers Endgame’ Tested With The Most Incredible Responses Ever

The Russo Brothers started working with Marvel with Captain America: the Winter Soldier, which was followed by Captain America: Civil War and then Avengers: Infinity War. In each case, they have mastered the art of squeezing in a vast amount of story but in a way to keep the film moving and still keeping audiences entertained. They learned their craft from working on comedy series like Community, and Arrested Development where they only had 21 minutes of space to work in. Their goal was to make it necessary to re-watch it again to catch everything that was included. They call it the
