#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?”

Superhero Movies 2016

Superhero movies for 2016 with release dates. These superhero films are both DC (Warner Bros) and Marvel (Marvel/Disney, 20th Century Fox & Sony). The Valiant comic book superhero movies (in association with Sony Pictures), will release in 2017. This superhero movie list are the main superhero movies, smaller budget or indie superhero films may release next year as well. This list is ordered by release date and offers no bias over favorite superhero characters or which films will be better. I suspect ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘X-Men: Age of Apocalypse’ will be the favorites this year.

Captain America : Civil War trailer FINALLY released!!

‘Captain America : Civil War’ trailer was finally today! We get to see the motivations and cause of Civil War, how it differs from the comics, plenty of easter eggs and all new, never before seen on screen superheroes, like T’Challa (Black Panther)! ‘Captain America : Civil War’ looks freakin’ amazing! is directed by the same superhero movie geniuses that gave us ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ and is definitely going to be at the top of the list of best superhero movies of 2016!

CaptainAMERICA_IRONMAN_CIVILWAR

‘Captain America : Civil War’ premieres on May 6 2016.

#CaptainAmerica #CivilWar movie: Teams Revealed!

Captain_America_Civil_War_Team_CapTeam Cap: (you may have missed him..squint..) Ant-man / Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Hawkeye / Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner), Agent 13 / Sharon Carter (she was the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent keeping an eye on Cap/living just down the hall from his apt in Captain America : The Winter Solder)(Emily VanCamp), Captain America / Steve Rogers (Chris Evans), Falcon / Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) & Redwing (drone in background), The Winter Soldier / Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan).

Captain_America_Civil_War_Team_Iron_ManTeam Tony: War Machine / James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), Black Widow / Natasha Romanov (Scarlett Johansson), Iron Man / Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr), Black Panther / T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman), Vision (Paul Bettany).

not revealed are the team allegiances of Scarlet Witch / Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) and Spider-man / Peter Parker (Tom Holland). perhaps they try to remain neutral until they are dragged into the fight. The Hulk / Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) was cut from the script, as to where The Hulk went after ‘Avengers : Age of Ultron’ is “a big deal;” a story that can’t be told in just a few minutes. we will have to wait until ‘Avengers 3: Infinity War, part1’ for more Hulk.

Captain_America_Civil_War_at_warCaptain America : Civil War will focus on the aftermath of Avengers : Age of Ultron and the government stepping in to assess and control situations, calling the Avengers only when needed and overseeing their operations. Steve Rogers / Captain America and Tony Stark / Iron Man have disparate views on this and the Avengers’ role, which will eventually escalate to war among the Avengers with the looming threat of arch villain Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl) & his nefarious plans that most likely start with getting the Avengers to fight each other. also with returning villain, from Captain America The Winter Soldier, ex-S.H.I.E.L.D./Hydra agent, Crossbones / Brok Rumlow (Frank Grillo), who, in the comics, shoots and kills Captain America. don’t worry, Chris Evans has signed on for 6 movies as Captain America, leaving Avengers 3 : Infinity War, pt1 as his last contractual movie (will Captain America be killed by Thanos and Falcon carry the Shield?), but that could change, as it did for Robert Downey Jr, stating “No more Iron Man,” and then signing on for ‘Iron Man 4.’

Crossbones

CivilwarCaptain America : Civil War will premiere on May 6, 2016.

Captain America : Civil War : 1st Glimpse Trailer revealed! Don’t tell Marvel

warning, this link will take you to facebook :/  look for Crossbones in the trailer, he’s the S.H.I.E.L.D. elite force agent that was really Hydra, but did not die at the end. he’s back and badass. in the comics Crossbones kills Captain America, but in Marvel Cinematic Universe, that is reserved Thanos (whooops, this post contains spoiler alerts).53f6487e293e1

this is the teaser trailer for Captain America 3: Civil War, where the Avengers, and every Marvel superhero and character, not owned by Fox, are forced to choose a side, when the U.S. government legislates ‘The Superhero Registration Act;’ a law designed to monitor and regulate all known superheroes, but also to have them act as a global police force under government supervision and command. Tony Stark/ Iron Man agrees, but Captain America opposes the new law, defending the freedom of superheroes. the rest of the Marvel universe chooses a side, but not the Fantastic Four and the X-Men, movie rights owned by Fox. Marvel miraculously negotiated a deal with Sony to have Spider-man appear in Captain America : Civil War and you know what that means… yep, Tony Stark builds an Iron Man suit for Peter Parker, Spider-man becomes, The Iron Spider, it’s freakin’ amazeballs!230507-152861-spider-man

Many peeps are confused, unsettled or totally against superheroes fighting against each other and have criticized Marvel for allowing this to be a movie, especially when having to explain it to children. Civil War is a major thread in Marcel comics in recent history and superheroes fighting each is nothing new, in fact the new WB/ DC movie, ‘Batman v Superman,’ based on Frank Miller’s ‘The Dark Knight Returns,’ has a very similar theme, where Superman becomes a government puppet and Batman becomes a wildcard that the government must contain. incidentally, Batman v Superman was set to premiere on the same day as Captain America : Civil War, but WB/ DC moved it to march 25, 2016. guess 2016 is the year of unrest among the superpowerful.

Captain America : Civil War is set to premiere on may 6, 2016.

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 1.10.19 PM:48  Iron Man on the Great Wall of China.

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 😉

avengers-vision-bio-615x323these images tell the movie story of Ultron and Vision; they were leaked on Reddit.

Marvel has confirmed the superhero movies of Iron Man 4, Thor 3, and Black Panther, but has not confirmed their release dates; most likely Thor 3 will be the year before Avengers 3, (Nov 3 2017) and Iron Man 4 will be released the same year as Avengers 3 (July 6 2018) and will continue the plot established in Avengers 3 and Captain America 3; yes Iron Man will be appearing in Captain America 3. major things will happen in Avengers 3, major things. not every hero will survive (the destructive path of Thanos). Avengers 3 will be the culmination of everything Marvel has been building in all of it’s movies to date, and in Marvel’s soon to be released movies leading up to Avengers 3. we will see even more plot threads and hints of what is to come; more than just more Infinity Stones. too bad Marvel couldn’t lease it’s other superheroes from Fox & Sony for this epic cinematic event. Marvel is developing a Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel movie, much to the fans wild approval. Captain Marvel, (formerly Ms Marvel), in the comics, is a role model for girls and women everywhere. a strong female lead superhero movie is a much needed, and long awaited arrival. DC / Warner Bros has been saying for years that a female lead superhero movie just wont work; just this week, they changed their minds, because of the fans, and green-lighted the Wonder Woman movie. Marvel is also developing a Black Widow movie, which may include Hawkeye and her time at Hydra. who will be first to release a strong female lead superhero movie? Marvel with Captain Marvel or Black Widow or DC / Warner Bros with Wonder Woman? Marvel is also developing several other superhero movies for the immediate future and is developing every Marvel superhero and every major comic book storyline for the years to come, through year 2036. yes, ‘Secret Invasion,’ and other favorites, will be in film, so start looking for clues leading up to and beyond Avengers 3. Ironman 4 and Black Panther have confirmed as movies.

Fox, who owns the cinematic rights to Marvel’s X-Men and Fantastic Four, has confirmed an X-Force movie, the X-Men spin-off. it has yet to be confirmed whether it will be X-Force or Uncanny X-Force from the comics, we the fans want to see Psylocke, Domino, X-23, Cable and Fantomex, and ArcAngel and Deadpool would be cool too. Unfortunately, Fox will not be returning X-Men or anything under the X-Men umbrella back to Marvel any time soon. Fox (and Sony) should at least strike a deal with Marvel to lease certain characters, so the Marvel movies can be more complete and true to the comics. for example, when an ominous foe threatens earth, every Marvel bands together to defeat them; ie, Thanos, Ultron, Kang the Conqueror, etc., instead of how it is now in the cinematic universe, where it seems like Spider-man was napping when Loki and the Chitauri almost conquered New York, as the X-Men watched it all on TV. sign the petition to free the X-Men.

Sony, who owns the movie rights to Marvel’s Spider-man and all of Spiderman’s villains and cohorts, will be creating its own Spidey cinematic universe. Sony plans to launch a Sinister Six movie soon and plans to launch other Spider-man related films, although “officially” both the Black Cat movie and the Venom movie have been shelved for now. it’s obvious Sony has rushed the Spider-man movies before. this was blatantly obvious with Spider-man 3, great characters, but poorly executed. Spider-man 3 was merely a pre-cursor to the horror that was to come; the Amazing Spider-man movie. it was way too soon to reboot the franchise Sony. although Amazing Spider-man 2 was better than Amazing Spider-man, it was clearly rushed, with no clear story arc; and why were there 3 villains? and why did the movie have 3 endings? Sony was trying to set up it’s Spidey universe, hinting at future films, but it was poorly executed. rumor: Sony may have struck a deal with Fox and future movies may see an X-men/ Fantastic Four/ Spider-man crossover of some sort. Sony has confirmed Amazing Spider-man 3 and Amazing Spider-man 4, but not Andrew Garfield for Amazing Spider-man 4. Sony could be planning on killing Peter Parker, like Marvel did in the comics, and passing the web slinger role to Miles Morales / Ultimate Spider-man. we shall see.. sign the petition to share Spider-man with Marvel.

DC / Warner Bros has confirmed a solo Batman movie and Man of Steel 2, but has not confirmed their release dates yet. this post will be updated as new release are confirmed.

note: Marvel & DC are not the only companies who produce superhero comics. other comic book companies will soon be launching their own superhero movies. Valiant comics is one of these companies. If you haven’t read Valiant, start with X-O Manowar, he will be the 1st of many Valiant movies. there have been other non-Marve-DC superhero movies in the past too, like the Phantom, from the 90s, with Billy Zane, which is one of my favorite superhero movies of all time (story is more important than visual effects).
