We are officially one month away from the gigantic team up known as Avengers:Infinity War. Amidst all of the posters, trailers and tv spots we officially begin production on the latest avenger, Captain Marvel.
In a press release from Marvel Studios announcing the start of production on Captain Marvel, The stuido has confirmed 3 new cast members that are for sure to get the fans even more excited; Clark Gregg, the beloved Agent Phil Coulson from the earliest Marvel Cinematic Universe films and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., along with Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace, who both previously appeared in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Hearing that Phil Coulson is in the film makes all the sense in the world given that the film is set in the 90s and features Samuel L. Jackson as a younger two-eyed Nick Fury, director of S.H.I.E.L.D. This will be the first Marvel Studios film that Gregg has appeared in since his on-screen death in 2012’s Avengers, even though he has been the lead character in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. after being brought back to life a few times.
Pace played Ronan the Accuser in Guardians, a member of the Kree alien race, who are central to the Captain Marvel plot. Hounsou played Korath the Pursuer, an accomplice of Ronan. Given the prominent role of the Kree in Captain Marvel mythology, a return from both characters seems like a natural fit.
Ever since it’s been announced, there’s been a lot of speculation around what a YA series based around the classic Marvel characters, Cloak & Dagger, would look like. Especially on Freeform, the first superhero series to land there. There have been a few clips and teasers, but today we got the full introductory trailer as to who these kids are, and where we find them at the start of this show.
With DC somewhat dominating this age demo of the genre with it’s CW shows, this trailer positions Cloak & Dagger to be a solid second shot, after Runaways very successful run on Hulu. It also demonstrates Disney’s ability to spread Marvel’s content across several platforms, as Agents Of Shield is currently in season 5 on ABC, and Netflix carries several New York City based heroes, in Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and The Punisher.
This version of Cloak & Dagger takes place in Louisiana and will obviously play heavily on both race and class, through an interracial relationship with a couple who are from different ends of the economic spectrum, and I for one, am all for it. What are your thoughts? Let us know!
Avengers:Infinity War marketing and promotion is in FULL SWING and it seems as if every day there is something new and exciting.
Today is not any different as the cast listing details have been released on Metacrtitic.com and we may potentially have a BOMBSHELL SPOILER. Now, Peter Dinklage is mentioned but in an unnamed role. This is not new as we know he is in the film but his actual role has not been released. It is assumed that he may be either Pip the Troll or Modok. but the other listing is a MAJOR shock if true.
Here is a screenshot but we have but have included a direct link and WOW!!!
(Bobby’s additional commentary:)
Incredible. I’m sure in the coming hours we’ll find out more about how the character listed under Cobie Smulders jumped over from Fox for this, but this is a major coup for Feige and Marvel if this isn’t some kind of error! Curt Clendinin, if you’re unfamiliar, has appeared in a number of films, including Blues Brothers and 2002’s Spider-Man. In wondering whether he is actually playing the part, the biggest hint is his recent retweet of a Gizmodo article about Fox working on a Silver Surfer reboot. Does he make an appearance in Infinity War and then go back to use by Fox for a solo film? Has Feige already struck a character deal with Fox? So. Many. Questions. What are your theories? Let us know!
This should be taken as a pretty good sign because Marvel Studios has moved up it’s release date for Avengers:Infinity War up one week from May 4th to April 27th.
The news was revealed in a Twitter thread conversation between the films official account and Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr.
Are you excited for this move?
There are new promo images for Avengers:Infinity War and some of what we have gotten is a few more detailed looks at some of the characters. We get a look at Captain America’s new Wakandan shield, Thor and his eye patch but one of the most interesting things is the look at Iron Man.
We see new rocket boosters coming from the back of his suit as we as a new cannon on his arm. many believe this to be the bleeding armor suit, which may or may not have been assisted in being developed by Shuri.
Also there is a promotional mug appears to feature an evil character we haven’t seen before. Could it be another member of Thanos’ Black Order? Its possible that this may be the head of The Outriders
Check out all of the pics below and be sure to let us know what you think.
The first season of Marvel’s The Punisher garnered rave reviews. The reviews were so strong and positive that it was renewed for a second season close to a week after its initial release on Netflix.
Now as the story of former Marine turned vigilante, Frank Castle heads into its sophomore season, more talent is being added to the cast. The show stars Jon Bernthal and includes Ben Barnes as Billy Russo, Amber Rose Revah as Dinah Madani, and Jason R. Moore as Curtis Hoyle returning from season 1. Jo
Being added to the cast as series regulars are Shooter actor Josh Stewart will play John Pilgrim, “a man whose calm exterior belies a ruthless interior. Despite having left behind a life of violence, circumstances will force him to use his old skills and bring him into Frank Castle’s world.” Meanwhile, Supergirl‘s Floriana Lima will portray Krista Dumont, “a smart, compassionate, and driven psychotherapist for military veterans.” (that explains why her and Danvers broke up in Supergirl….that and kids) Last but not least, Giorgia Whigham (Scream) will play Amy Bendix, “a street-smart grifter with a mysterious past.”
As of now, Bendix is the only established Marvel Comics character of the three, and a very minor one at that. It seems that this version of Bendix will be relatively different from the comics. .
A day after the highly praised and positively received premiere of Marvel Studio’s Black Panther, Marvel is hitting everyone with a one-two combo with the first trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp.
It picks up following Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) after being broken out of the super max prison in Captain America:Civil War. Scott, talking to Hope Van Dyne (Evangaline Lilly) is questioming whether would she have been by his side during the epic Avenger battle royale in Berlin.
We find out both Hope and Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) are on the run from the authorities. Which leads us to believe they may have either helped break Lang and the other Avengers out with Captain America or they may have just been on the run knowing the authorities are looking for Scott.
Either way that action and incredible special effects revs up and that’s not from just the Ant-Man. The Wasp has some amazing and mind blowing shots. We see the use of the wings and even the blasters on the Wasp suit which prompts Lang to ask Pym, “You gave her wings…i guess you didn’t have the technology for me?” With Pym responding, “I did.”
Overloaded with action and fun this sequel is sure to raise the bar in which it’s predecessor set.
Check out the trailer for yourself and see Ant-Man and The Wasp when it hits theaters July of this year.
