Marvel Studios has been on a roll lately with its Special Presentation format on Disney+. After receiving a positive reception from fans and critics alike, the studio is now rumored to be working on its next project in the same format, with a focus on one of Marvel’s most intriguing villains, Mephisto.
According to Jeff Sneider from Above The Line, the Mephisto Special Presentation is already in production, with Sacha Baron Cohen portraying the titular villain. The rumor has caused quite a stir among Marvel fans, as Mephisto is a character that has been eagerly anticipated for a long time.
The filming of the Mephisto project is rumored to be taking place on the set of Agatha: Coven of Chaos, another Disney+ show that is set to feature the return of Kathryn Hahn’s character, Agatha Harkness, who first appeared in WandaVision. The fact that the two shows are being filmed simultaneously is a sign that Marvel is looking to expand its mystical realm in the MCU, and the studio is not slowing down anytime soon.
The idea of a Mephisto Disney+ special has been in the air for a while now, and it seems that Marvel is finally moving forward with it. The studio has been known to work on multiple projects simultaneously, as it did with The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. This approach saves time and resources and allows the studio to work on projects that are connected in some way.
The rumored start of filming for the Mephisto project could indicate that it might premiere this year, potentially as Marvel and Disney+’s Halloween Special. Marvel Studios’ first Special Presentation, Werewolf by Night, was filmed around this time last year and premiered in October, just in time for Halloween. Given the uncertainty surrounding Ironheart’s release date, there’s even a chance that Sacha Baron Cohen would make his first appearance as Mephisto in the rumored Special Presentation.
The Mephisto Special Presentation could serve as a launchpad for the character’s MCU debut, giving fans a chance to see his origin story and learn more about what he has been up to during the Infinity Saga and the Scarlet Witch’s rise and fall across WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The possibilities are endless, and Marvel fans are eagerly anticipating the next move from the studio.
In conclusion, Marvel Studios’ Special Presentation format has been a huge success, and it looks like the studio is not slowing down anytime soon. The Mephisto Disney+ special is a rumor that has been circulating for a while, and if it turns out to be true, it could be one of the most exciting projects from Marvel yet. With Sacha Baron Cohen rumored to portray the villain, fans are in for a treat, and the special could serve as a launchpad for Mephisto’s MCU debut. Marvel’s Phase 5 slate may be delayed, but the studio is keeping fans engaged with its exciting new projects, and the Mephisto special is sure to be one of them.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
