Marvel Musical On New Year’s Eve?
A Marvel Musical on New Years Eve sounds like a plan!
Kids, I am rarely at a loss for words (or word count), but I am not sure what to do with this?
Apparently, there is something fun coming to Marvel fans in Chine (and elsewhere?) on December 31!

Thankfully, Brandon Davis at ComicBook.com does know what’s up:
“I know I said no more surprises,” Marvel Studios might as well have said after blasting their updated Phase 4 title list for the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the Disney Investor Day. This would be followed of course with Tony Stark’s next desperate line from Avengers: Endgame, “I was really hoping to pull off one last one.” Well, color us very surprised in the last weeks of 2020: Marvel Studios is having some sort of musical performance on New Year’s Eve which is going to come complete with a preview of what’s to come from the studios in 2021. This is a real thing…
This musical event, which Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has now officially promoted, will be airing during the Bilibili New Year’s concert which targets a young audience in China. China is one of the largest box offices in the world, often outperforming the rest of the world for certain movie titles. Marvel’s push to focus on an Asian audience is a smart play for business, especially considering there is finally an Asian super hero on the way in the for of Simu Liu’s Shang-Chi. If you don’t have access to the channels where this will be broadcast, it’s a safe bet that the content will make it’s way to Twitter.

Again. Very intriguing. It would be great to get some new footage or an appearance or two from any of our favorite Marvel folks.
As Mr. Feige said:
Next year, Marvel Studios will continue bringing stories to the big screen, including Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, as well as Eternals; welcoming a brand new era in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
I also want to point folks back in the direction of Brandon Davis at ComicBook.com for even more on Kevin Feige’s announcement.
