How Will Marvel Bring The XMen, The Fantastic Four & The Silver Surfer into the MCU?

wallpaper-1199506Well, I have some thoughts..

Invisible Woman by Artgem (aka Stanley Lau)

Invisible Woman by Artgem (aka Stanley Lau)

The simplest explanation is not always the most fun. Yes, you could say a school of mutants has always existed in West Chester, NY, but chose not to engage in any of the world threatening struggles– boring, (and also, very unlike the X-Men to ignore such threats). And the Baxter Building has been in the Microverse the whole time? –not buying it.

Captain Marvel by Artgem (aka Stanley Lau)

Captain Marvel by Artgem (aka Stanley Lau)

You could solve it easily with time travel, via the Infinity Gauntlet, with Captain Marvel resetting the entire universe, but one of things is not like the others– enter the XMen in an end credit trailer to the deafening screams of Marvel fans (I would be one of them), as Stan Lee begins reading a copy of the Daily Bugle with Fantastic Four on the front page. This is certainly scifi plausible and would be acceptable, but I have another theory..

What if..

..during the final battle with Thanos, Scarlet Witch alters reality with her magic, destroying the Infinity Stones, ceasing Thanos to have ever existed, but also inadvertently alters the reality of the universe. The previously vaporized superheroes return and BOOM the XMen now exist, and have always existed according to everyone, except Wanda. Wolverine, Rogue and SpiderWoman (Jessica Drew) are standing beside their teammates, the Avengers, The Fantastic Four can be seen far away atop the Baxter Building, and far, far away, the Silver Surfer makes a deal with Galactus to save Zenn-la.

..to me, my XMen..

#Avengers #InfinityWar #Spoiler #review #DontRead but also #DontWorry

thanosSeriously, #spoilers ahead..

First of all, you knew this was coming. If you didn’t, you weren’t paying attention. Even in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor had a vision, in The Cave, where Thanos killed all the Avengers.

doctor_strange_featured_imageLet’s just take a look at several things Dr Stephen Strange said during the film. “I’ve examined 14million plus possibilities..” “How many of those do we win?” “Only one.” Later, he says, “There really was no other way.”

AdamWarlock-GotG2

If you put these together, Dr Strange saw the only possibility in which they won and let it play out, knowing there really was only one way to defeat Thanos, even if it was defeat in the long term. And by long term, I mean, the next Avengers movie, picking up where Guardians of the Galaxy 2 left off, “I name him ‘Adam.'” Yes, Adam Warlock, in the comics defeats Thanos, with the help of others, but it is Adam who wields the Infinity Gauntlet to defeat Thanos, also Squirrel Girl defeats Thanos, but that is another story. This also explains why Dr Strange never used The Time Stone in his fight against Thanos, like he did in his fight against Dormammu. He played the long game, the one where Thanos will be defeated for good.

4147294-jpegThis also explains why Dr Strange “allowed” Quill to get angry at Thanos, hitting him and waking him up 2 seconds too early, (Tony Stark in his Iron Man Nano Suit & Peter Parker Spider-man in his Iron Spider suit almost removed the Infinity Gauntlet, yes, they just needed 2 seconds more). So if they did succeed in removing The Gauntlet, would Thanos rise again at some later time, needing Squirrel Girl to defeat him? (again, another story..). I believe Marvel is saying Thanos would rise again and the only way to defeat Thanos for good is to let him destroy half the life of all the universe… and come back later to defeat Thanos for good.

brie-larson-captain-marvel-mar-vell-comicbookcom-1078504Captain Marvel will play a pivotal role in defeating Thanos, and removing the Gauntlet. Adam Warlock can wield it and reset the universe to how it was before Thanos, even restoring all of Asgard and Nidavellir, (the realm of the dwarves).

tumblr_np82sfbER01s88ss5o1_1280Once this happens, Wanda, the Scarlet Witch, can destroy several of the Infinity Stones and have the Avengers protect the rest. I would have Wanda destroy the Power Stone & the Reality Stone, as they are too powerful to have lying around, even The Collector could  not protect these Infinity Stones. Give the Time Stone back to Dr Strange for safe keeping and as a great defense against threats to Earth. Give the Mind Stone back to Vision, so he can become Vision again, unless Shuri can reconnect neurons and make Vision without the need for the Mind Stone. Let Thor use the Space Stone as the Tesseract again, because that was convenient, and as for the Soul Stone? I’m not sure. Definitely have Eitri melt down the Infinity Gauntlet so it can never be used again.

This is a response to all the angst on twitter right now.. (don’t worry, in two years, all the ones who disappeared at the end of the movie will be restored).

Also, Disney just used the word assh*le in a Marvel film, way to go MCU. It wasn’t even an emotional moment, just Banner in the.. Were they trying to top the last Avengers movie, with “language, Cap?”

#HULK Smash! not in #CaptainAmerica #CivilWar

Mark Ruffalo states Hulk was cut from the script of ‘Captain America Civil War.’ in an interview with Italian news agency, Badtaste.it, Mark Ruffalo told reporters The Hulk left at the end of ‘Avengers : Age of Ultron,’ and where he went is really significant and deserves more than a few minutes of screen time, which is all that was available in ‘Captain America : Civil War.’ sadly, we will have to wait until ‘Avengers 3 : Infinity War, part1’ for more Hulk.hulk-720x416

#BlackPanther has a director! and it’s a woman! and she’s oscar worthy (Selma)! #Marvel #superhero #movies

Marvel has officially confirmed that Ava DuVernay (Selma) will direct the upcoming ‘Black Panther’ movie. it’s about time Marvel is hiring equally qualified women directors, and not just for the obvious choice of female lead superhero roles, like Captain Marvel.

Black_Panther_Vol_4_1_Textless T’Challa (Black Panther), the Prince of Wakanda will lead us on an incredible journey through, not just Africa, but also through the world of the Avengers and Captain America. Wakanda is a secret and advanced civilization, located in Africa, that has cured cancer and all disease, and has technology so advanced (as Jason Inman, “Jawiin,” puts it) “can build the Star Trek Enterprise tomorrow.” Wakanda is also the only source on earth for vibranium, as referenced to in the ‘Avengers : Age of Ultron’ film.

Ava DuVernay gave us Selma, a very powerful film. I can’t wait to see her take on T’Challa/ Black Panther.

‘Black Panther’ is set to premiere on November 3, 2017.

2012-Los-Angeles-Goes-Undersan andreas

perhaps they tried to make this film a little too epic.. they failed, it looks more like ‘2012,’ a laughable disaster movie that’s too over-the-top to be believable; just add aliens, robots and godzilla, don’t pretend it’s a serious movie. also, not the sequel to ‘volcano’ (1997).

rating: the epic scenes will be best in the theatres, but as far as a movie goes, with things that make a movie good, like a good story, wait for dvd; unless you like to see california fall off into the ocean-traffic problem solved, but seriously, save your money.   may 29

Avengers : Age of Ultron Trailer #2 : explained! 7 secret easter eggs no one else knows!

Avengers : Age of Ultron Trailer #2 : explained

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 2.20.23 PM:20 Utron comes to life in a previously destroyed Iron man suit. Tony Stark finds the Ultron computer program in the Chitauri wreckage; does he make it the new J.A.R.V.I.S.?

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 2.20.57 PM:27  QuicksilverScarlet Witch! due to a legal loop hole, both Scarlet Witch and her brother, Quicksilver, can appear in both 20th Century Fox movies, the X-Men movie series, as well as Marvel movies. Marvel, of course, is the creator of the X-Men, but sold the movie rights of the X-Men and every form of “mutant” and even the use of Adamantium to Fox many years ago and has been desperately trying to get them back.

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.14.50 PM Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.14.44 PM Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.14.16 PM:33  mystery woman in cavern, as Nick Fury voice over : “no matter who wins or loses, trouble always comes ’round.” some say this is Nebula (Thanos’ other “daughter,” other than Gamora, from Guardians of the Galaxy, looking for Infinity Stones for Thanos). but this could be an introduction to Wakanda, home to Black Panther and Vibranium. will Ultron create a metal suit out of indestructible Vibranium? probably. especially because, in the comics, Ultron created an exoskeleton from Adamantium, the indestructible metal that covers Wolverine’s skeleton; Adamantium’s use in films is exclusive to Fox, movie rights owner of X-Men and mutants. it would make sense to alter the cinematic version to Vibranium in its stead and create a window to the wonderful world of Wakanda. the woman in the cavern scene could be Shuri, T’Challa / Black Panther’s sister. Black Panther solo movie : Nov 3 2017.

Screen Shot 2015-01-21 at 2.29.44 PM:36  Scarlet Witch!!  also kicking Tony’s ass.

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.16.01 PM:38  a young Natasha (Black Widow), held captive with some sort of invasive surgery happening, presumably at Hydra.

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.10.45 PM:52  from the back, presumably Black Widow with some big mf guns about to create havoc & major destruction on something/ some one.

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.23.04 PM:54  other dude. this could be Ulysses Klaw, the guy who kills T’Chaka, T’Chala/ Black Panther’s father. does he steal the Vibranium for Ultron?

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.11.17 PM:55  Quin jet

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.12.17 PM:58  Ultron trying to kill Captain America

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 1.54.45 PM:59  blond woman running with child. is this significant? is this woman Carol Danvers? the future Captain Marvel? it’s a long shot, but she is slated to make two cameos in this movie, perhaps this scene is the motivation for her becoming a hero; she also needs Kree powers, but maybe from Nebula somehow? i doubt they will have the Kree Captain Mar-vel is this movie, but maybe in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, no one knows for sure at this point. Carol Danvers will have her own feature length film (July 6 2018).

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.02.53 PM1:00  Hulk & Widow have a moment. presumably the Hulk gets out of control and Black Widow is the only one who can calm him. “Hulk trust Widow lady.”

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.13.00 PMScreen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.09.42 PM1:02  Ultron attempting to kill Thor  (Ultron (Ultron 6 comic book equivalent) may actually kill Captain America and Thor and almost everyone else, like he did in the comic book; it may be up to Black Widow/ Natasha Romanov to find the Time Infinity Stone, reverse time and save everyone. Ultron might also find a way to banish Thor to a dark realm, leading to Thor 3 : Ragnarok (releases July 28 2017)).

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.05.07 PM1:03 other mystery woman? or Shuri again?

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.13.45 PM1:06  Thor strangle threatens Tony Stark. (Tony found the computer program on a Chitauri ship & made it his new Jarvis, allowing it to become sentient, thus creating Ultron). more on Ultron, click here.

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.16.18 PMScreen Shot 2015-01-22 at 1.17.13 PM1:10  Hulk buster Ironman suit, Tony Stark built the suit in the event Hulk gets out of control, which only creates more distrust. did Tony Stark create a contingency plan for every Avenger, a way to defeat each Avenger in the case they were mind controlled like Hawkeye was in the first Avengers film? if Ultron is inadvertently given access to J.A.R.V.I.S., and therefore everything Tony Stark knows, Ultron would then have knowledge of how to defeat every Avenger. in the comics, Nick Fury and the former S.H.I.E.L.D. created this out of control Avenger contingency plan. for the movie, Avengers : Age of Ultron,  it is most likely Tony Stark will be responsible; this will create distrust and cause the Avengers to disassemble for the next film, Captain America 3 : Civil War, or the “Ironman vs Captain America movie,” as some have started to call it.

every time Marvel releases a little more of this film, i just cant wait to see it more.

Ultron : Who is Ultron? & 5 easter eggs no one will ever expect in Avengers : Age of Ultron from leaked secrets Joss Wheadon doesn’t want anyone to know

BREAKING NEWS: Marvel’s most anticipated superhero movie to date, Avengers : Age of Ultron, will drastically vary the origin of Ultron from the comic book. Hank Pym, the original Ant-man, will not be the creator of Ultron, but instead, Ultron is found in the wreckage of a Chitauri ship, after the Battle of New York. in the comic, Ultron is a computer program, akin to a computer virus, that has achieved sentience; an AI, Artificial Intelligence, capable of independent thought; yes, the 2014 Transcendence movie stole heavily from Ultron. Ultron deems humanity unworthy of life and becomes hell bent on eradicating all human life on earth. in an attempt to create new life in his own image, Ultron creates Vision, an android capable of feeling. much to the chagrin of every comic book fan, Joss Wheadon has chosen to ignore this, one of the greatest comic book stories in the Marvel universe, titled: “Even an Android can Cry.” in Avengers : Age of Ultron, Joss Wheadon gives the creation of Vision, out of the necessity of fighting Ultron, to the combined effort of Tony Stark and Bruce Banner. Ultron thinks himself to be a god and creating life in ones own image, or greater than oneself, is the ultimate act of a deity. when Ultron creates Vision, it is such a pinnacle event from an ego, albeit a computer ego, larger than the galaxy itself. i’m so disappointed this crucial detail was left out of the story. i can see why Joss Wheadon did this and how it seeds the plots of upcoming Marvel movies, but i will always be disappointed. a point i will continue to make even after i see this amazing movie. from what i know so far, at the end of the film, it appears the government will be holding Tony Stark responsible for the creation of Ultron and will want to monitor all superheroes, forcing a Registration Act, thus beginning the story for Captain America 3 : Civil War. Civil War is a good, modern comic book story in the Marvel Universe and involves every Marvel character and superhero; uh-hum, Sony, change your mind and share Spider-man with Marvel for Captain America 3 : Civil War. in the film, Avengers : Age of Ultron, Ultron will create an army of lesser Ultrons instead. they will create a path of destruction across the globe, reaching the advanced African technological country of Wakanda, and you know what that means.. YES! Black Panther will appear, seeding the upcoming Black Panther solo movie. Wakanda is the only source on earth of vibranium, an indestructible metal that absorbs all sound and kinetic energy. Vibranium was combined with an “experimental iron alloy,” later known as “proto-adamantium,” (precursor to regular adamantium, used to cover Wolverine’s skeleton and claws) to create Captain America’s shield. over the years, Ultron has been defeated quite a few times, but he has always been rebuilt or regenerated. he has taken many forms, even that of a woman. if his AI, Artificial Intelligence, software program survives by uploading to another computer that avoids destruction, then he will survive and return one day with a vengeance, in a new robotic form. also, if Ultron uploads himself to the Cloud, sync’s with someone’s iPad, like in the movie ‘sex tape,’ or finds a home anywhere on the internet, he will most certainly return in a future film. Ultron is too great a villain to be killed off in just one movie. speaking of being killed off.. will Captain America be shot and killed by Crossbones at the end of Civil War? or will he survive long enough to be killed by Thanos, with the fully formed, 6 Infinity Stone, Infinity Gauntlet, at the end of Avengers : Infinity War, part 2? or a combination of the two? either way, Bucky Barnes will carry the Shield, or will it be Falcon? duhn duhn DUUUUUUHHNNNNN; (Spoiler Alert : i’m not going to tell you everything 😉

oh my god yes, ULTRON! one of the best villains in the Marvel universe. there are so many incredible things that are going to happen in this film, Scarlet Witch, Vision, another Quicksilver, Hulk-Buster Iron Man suit, and so many lead-ins to other Marvel movie story arcs. in this film, the origin of Ultron will vary drastically from the comic book.

June 12_1392673279Jurassic World

SPOILER ALERT: the dinosaurs escape and attack people. so they bred a new dinosaur from the DNA of a T-Rex, a cuddlefish (it almost looks like an octopus) and a snake. what kind of Freakosaurus is this? the SyFy channel already beat them to the punch with this one, with ‘Sharktopus vs Pteracuda’ (a half shark/ half octopus battling a half Pterodactyl/ half barracuda). why don’t these movies win oscars? will Chris Pratt do a dance-off with the freak show Jurassic T-Rex? i hope so. will the next film be a tornado of mutant dinosaurs? Jurassicnado? why not? what bugs me most is that T-Rex or Tyrannosaurus Rex never lived in the Jurassic Age, that species died out long before and thrived in the previous Cretaceous Age. why not add the newly discovered Jurassic era Torvosaurus, a bigger and badder-ass (yes, that’s a word;) predator?

July 1terminator43Terminator : Genesys

YES! it’s a reboot of sorts with Emilia Clarke (Mother of Dragons/Game of Thrones). the premise is Kyle Reece goes back in time to save Sarah Conner, but when he goes back in time, what he thinks is going to happen, has already happened, and Skynet sends an asian T-1000 to kill them both, so now it’s like T2, & they try to kill Cyberdyne systems to prevent the Skynet from being created in the first place, also like T2. so just pretend T3 never happened and put the Batman Terminator as a distant memory. despite all this, it looks really cool & will keep us guessing, unless the hot tub time machine goes back in time and changes the script; can we still do that for T3?

despite all my reservations and disgruntlement after Edgar Wright left the project (Edgar Wright pitched the idea to Marvel, wrote, produced and was to direct it, until Marvel went behind his back & re-wrote the script), Ant-man may actually turn out to be a good movie. still not clear why this movie is releasing after the Avengers : Age of Ultron; Hank Pym (played by michael Douglas), the original Ant-man created Ultron. i guess they could do flashbacks, etc. the comics can vary from the movies and even the comics have varying plot lines and reboots, so i can’t really predict the plot, well, not too much. i do know this, in the comic, Scott Lang, Ant-man 2, (played by Paul Rudd) steals Hank Pym’s ant suit & uses it for crime, but then turns into a hero using the suit for good. the arch-nemesis of Ant-man is Yellowjacket. there is a lot of blogfusion (blog confusion) recently around the plot, some say Yellowjacket will be a separate villain, and others, including me, think along the comic thread of Hank Pym leaving the Avengers and turning into Yellowjacket. Scott Lang’s daughter Cassie Lang will be in the movie as well. not sure if Janet, Mrs Hank Pym, aka Wasp, will be in the Ant-man Marvel film, but hope so. yes, there are a lot of insect related characters in Marvel.  (see previous Ant-man posts: Ant-man May 27, Ant-man June 1, Ant-man June 8)

Peter Dinklage, Adam Sandler and some other dude, all video game child prodigees, are recruited to save the world from the attacking mayhem of video game characters. video games are real dude. so like the 80s Starfighter movie and that South Park episode, where Kenny becomes the next keanu Reeves, but with Sandler and a mullet-wearing Dinklage, good times, good times.

yep, another reboot. damn you Fox for owning the rights to Marvel characters. you guys can work together and still make money. if you did, your movies would be so much better and you would make even more money. but most importantly, working together, would mean characters could appear in Marvel movies so people would never ask, “So where was the Fantastic Four when the Chitauri invaded New York with Loki, guided by Thanos? were they napping?”
