WIRE Buzz: Bob Iger teases mystery MCU series; Amazon hunts for serial killers; more

MCU fans received a nice surprise during the Big Game this past weekend when Disney+ decided to unveil the first footage from The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, and Loki.

They're just three of the Marvel series in development for the streaming platform. According to Disney boss Bob Iger, however, there are 10 in all right now, including the ones teased during the Super Bowl. However, we already know about Hawkeye, What If...?Ms. Marvel, She-Hulk, and Moon Knight, so that leaves us with two mystery shows that have yet to be announced.

Asking fans for their thoughts on Twitter, Fandom got such guesses as the Fantastic Four, the Nova Corps, Rocket and Groot, Okoye, America Chavez, and the X-Men. As long as we're wishing, we'd love to see Squirrel Girl or Kid Kaiju in the live-action space. Hey, ya never know!

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier debuts on Disney+ in August, while WandaVision arrives in December. Loki is expected sometime in 2021.


Amazon is about to embark on a hunt for serial killers after buying the rights to The Dark Corners of the Night, reports Deadline, The third entry in Meg Gardiner's UNSUB novel series, Dark Corners (on sale Feb. 18) will yield a one-hour drama show for Amazon's Prime platform. Gardiner is a former lawyer and three-time Jeopardy! champion.

“Meg Gardiner writes complicated characters and thrilling plot lines that lend themselves beautifully to a cinematic adaptation,” said executive producer Larry Trilling (Goliath) in a statement. “The UNSUB series is going to be a wild ride for viewers.”

Named for the FBI's term for unknown killers — "Unknown Subjects" — the UNSUB books follows bureau profiler Caitlin Hendrix as she tracks down homicidal, albeit clever, maniacs. UNSUB (inspired by the unsolved Zodiac killings) and its sequel, Into the Black Nowhere (inspired by the Ted Bundy murders), were published in 2017 and 2018 respectively. 

The Dark Corners of the Night finds Hendrix heading to Los Angeles to find the "the Midnight Man," a killer who murders parenting adults and leaves their children alive as witnesses to the terrible carnage.
