DAREDEVIL Canceled Video Game Footage, WANDAVISION "Snotgate" Scandal, SHE-HULK Update, & More Marvel News

There's a lot of great new Marvel news to delve into here today, with footage from 2003's cancelled Daredevil game, more insight into WandaVision, Hugh Jackman's feud with Ryan Reynolds, and much more...

Theaters may have nothing new to show right now, but we still have plenty to share with you here at ComicBookMovie.com. There's lots to delve into in this latest Marvel news roundup, including more intel on WandaVision following Entertainment Weekly's recent cover story about the show.

That includes comments from both Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany about an event they've dubbed "Snotgate," while it turns out Dick Van Dyke played an unexpected role in the show's production.

Plus, something we think will really stand out to you guys is some newly revealed footage from the Daredevil video game which was supposed to be released back in 2003. It may look tame by today's standards, but it's clear this would have been a pretty badass experience at the time. 

So, take a look through this Marvel movie and TV news roundup by clicking the "Next" button below! 
 

5. She-Hulk Gets A Working Title

Production Weekly is reporting that the working title for the She-Hulk TV series coming to Disney+ is "Libra." That's a reference to the zodiac sign on the same name which, as you'll likely already know, serves as the basis for the Scales of Justice. Jennifer Walters is, of course, a lawyer. 

In fact, it's previously been reported that the Marvel Cinematic Universe's version of She-Hulk will specialise in superhuman law, defending those with powers in court. 

It's a clever working title, and the fact that it hints at the direction of the show isn't a huge surprise. Remember, Ms. Marvel was given the working title "Jersey," a nod to Kamala Khan's home. As of right now, it still hasn't been confirmed whether Tatiana Maslany will play the female Jade Giant. 
 

4. Ryan Reynolds And Hugh Jackman Reignite Their Rivalry

While we thought they'd put their differences to one side, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds have reignited their rivalry...for charitable causes, of course! Each of them are representing a charity at the retail warehouse chain Sam's Club, encouraging the company's customers to donate to one of their two charities: Jackman's Laughing Man Coffee or Reynolds' Sick Kids Foundation.

The former promotes fair working conditions for coffee farmers, while the latter supports children in hospital and their families. However, it's worth noting that the money raised will be spilt equally between both charities (one of them is bound to have bragging rights by the time all is said and done, though). What a shame we never got to see Wolverine vs. Deadpool on the big screen, eh?
 

3. Dick Van Dyke's Unexpected WandaVision Involvement

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, WandaVision director Matt Shakman revealed that both he and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige got the chance to talk to the legendary Dick Van Dyke about his five-year run on the now iconic sitcom, The Dick Van Dyke Show.

"[The Dick Van Dyke Show] can be very broad with silly physical-comedy gags, and yet it never feels false, and I wondered how they did that," Shakman explained. "His answer was really simple: He basically said that if it couldn’t happen in real life, it couldn’t happen on the show."

WandaVision stays faithful to the history of sitcoms because the site also reveals that the series was partially shot on Warner Bros. Ranch's Blondie Street in Burbank, the home of shows like Bewitched and Father Knows Best. Shakman also once starred in Growing Pains spinoff Just the Ten of Us.
 

2. "Snotgate" On The Set Of WandaVision

23923292124w

Talking of WandaVisionEntertainment Weekly's cover story also recalls a "falling out" between stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany before COVID-19 halted production earlier this year. 

They've dubbed the incident "Snotgate," and neither can agree about whose snot was on the other's face during a kissing scene between their characters. "She'll tell you a crock of sh*t about whose snot it was," Bettany alleges. "I know the truth, and people shouldn't be fooled by her story."

"When he has that makeup on, he can't really feel his leaking fluids anyway like I can," Olsen counters. "I was like, 'You can't even tell you’re snotting! I can! You can't feel your face 'cause it's covered in paint!'"

Now, we're forced to pick a side: #TeamOlsen or #TeamBettany!
 

1. Footage From 2003's Cancelled Daredevil Game

Back in 2003, Daredevil was supposed to get his own game on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and PC. Unfortunately, the game was cancelled, but some footage has now found its way online. The Kingpin, Bullseye, and Elektra all appear in their comic book attire, while locations like Hell's Kitchen and a boxing arena were also set to be locations the action would have headed to.

By today's standards, it looks pretty tame, but this isn't a finished version of the game and it likely would have been a lot of fun. The video above is well worth a watch (Black Widow was also set to appear), and it looks like we'd be able to swing around New York City courtesy of Daredevil's Billy Club. As for why Daredevil was cancelled, it boils down to issues behind the scenes. 

Seventeen years later, there's still no sign of a game revolving around the Man Without Fear.
