I think I like this idea a lot more than the idea of a continuation. There's a lot of interesting space to explore with the Asgardians and their (tenuous) connections to Norse mythology.
Aaand maybe that means Loki will stay dead
I’m not sure how I feel about Loki Doctor Who. I’d rather get something... I dunno what, but not that.
Season 2 Kid Loki?
I actually still hope that it's about Kid Loki in the present, with flashbacks to Tom Hiddleston Loki in the past.
I feel that they want to keep the option of kid Loki for future movies...and that that the series might be about laying the ground for the option.
Kid Loki did do a bit of meddling with the timeline so it's not impossible.
"Marvel has hired Ned Benson (The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby) to rewrite the script for the Black Widow standalone movie that will star Scarlett Johansson, Collider has exclusively learned."
Man, David Hayter's never gonna get one of his scripts used
Y'know, just that would be enough to wish one of his scripts was made into a movie, but finding out he wrote the first two X-Men really seals the deal for me.
Well, he also wrote the screenplay for The Scorpion King, which was the cinematic debut of a little-known gentleman by the name of Dwayne Johnson, so...
Six of one, half-a-dozen of the other

Wait...what...I somehow thought that they put the writer of captain Marvel on the Black Widow Project?
The prior script was written by Jac Schaeffer. She has co-written the Captain Marvel movie and is now attached to the Scarlet Witch and the Vision series.

Yeah, this is a RE-write, so the original writer has definitely done at least some preliminary treatments. Whether he is meant to be doctoring or tweaking the existing work in some way or doing a grounds-up scrap and rebuild (as was the case in Ant-Man IIRC) I don't know.
What necessitated a rewrite?
Loads of films go through re-writes. Sometimes the producers or director simply isn't satisfied with the way the script is written, so they bring in someone else to re-write either parts or all of it.
Remember: Jac Schaeffer wasn't even the first writer for Captain Marvel. The original writers were Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Then Schaeffer was brought in to rewrite their script and the directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck rewrote that script.

I do hope the rewrite doesn't amount to even more "male gazey abuse but she has a gun so it's feminist".
Based on their work in TWS and CW Markus and Mcfeely seemed to have a solid grasp of the character that avoided gendered tropes.
Yeah, They have done an excellent job with her. Pretty much everything I love about Black Widow came from them.
This kind of makes me nervous...I saw Jac Schaeffer getting Black Widow as a good sign for the quality of Captain Marvel. If you now gets replace I hope this doesn't point to problems with Captain Marvel's narrative....
He wasn't replaced. The script was just handed off to another writer. Again: it happens all the time. It happened with Captain Marvel, too. Hell, the first Iron Man movie was still being written as it was being filmed.
I am aware. Doesn't really happen to Marcus and Mc Feely, though, and the Captain America arc is easily the strongest in the MCU.
Honestly, I don't really have that much interest in Captain Marvel, if only because of the way Brie Larson has been using the film to virtue signal non-stop and all of her comments regarding white men, something that the cast of Black Panther very wisely avoided doing. I'll just let this video explain (please watch before critiquing it):
I really hope Endgame doesn't end with Captain Marvel steamrolling Thanos.

How well does it match the trope?
