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.

Here is the best of list of scifi movies film on the year of 2017, in theaters and direct to streaming online, via netflix or pay per watch websites, like google play or amazon (or even itunes, hulu, etc). There are many “b-rated” science fiction movies that do not appear on this list of best sci-fi movie of the year. If you have any suggestions of movies that you loved, that came out this year, in movie theater cinemas or online, please let me know; I’m always up for watching more scifi. As always, there are several categories of movies: 1. Must Watch in the theaters 2. Will wait to pay per watch (google play, amazon pay, itunes, etc.) 3. Wait for netflix (or hulu or whatever) 4. Watch if there’s nothing else on (tv, netflix, etc); often it is up to you to decide what category this year’s movies fall into.

Hopefully there are a few scifi movies on this that you may not have seen in theaters or streaming online and you now have more to watch as this year ends and another year begins. Happy New Year!

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.

Avengers : Age of Ultron

april 3         Cyborg   (DC / Warner Bros)

june 19     Green Lantern  (Reboot)   (DC / Warner Bros)

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 was also developing a Black Widow movie, which may include Hawkeye and her time at Hydra, but that is now on the back burner (update). 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? (update): it looks like DC will be first with Wonder Woman, June 23, 2017; Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers will be released on July 6, 2018. 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.

Marvel (update): Iron Man 4  Marvel has confirmed this as a movie and now has a contract with RBJ, Robert Downey Jr, but there are no more official Marvel movie dates for the next 5 years. Marvel only has one movie title for 2019, Avengers : Infinity War, part 2; i’m hoping we wont have to wait that long for Iron Man 4. Iron Man will be appearing in Captain America 3: Civil War, and of course, the Avengers 2 : Age of Ultron, Avengers 3 : Infinity War, part 1 & 2. if only only Iron Man had appeared in Captain America 2 : the Winter Soldier, catching Steve Rogers, just before hitting the ground, as he fell from the Helicarrier, if only..  Thor 3, now known as Thor : Ragnarok will feature one of the best story lines in the Thor comics. The Avengers : Infinty War, is, of course, about Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet and the immanent destruction of, not just earth, but also the universe; spoiler alert: Captain America’s shield will pass to another. sad, i know, but both the Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes and Falcon have carried Cap’s shield after Captain America was _________ in the comics.

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 including 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 & teh Fantastic Four were napping when Loki and the Chitauri almost conquered New York, and also as the X-Men watched it all on TV.

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.. (UPDATE Dec 2014): Sony may reboot the Spider-man franchise for Amazing Spider-man 3, due to conflicts with Andrew Garfield. please consider Sony, the fans will not stand for this, many still complain about the Andrew Garfield reboot. it’s too soon to reboot again; superhero fans and regular peeps will become disinterested and just stop going to the theatre. let Marvel show you hoe to use Spider-man, or at least lend him to Marvel.

DC / Warner Bros  (UPDATE)  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. Batfleck, Ben Affleck has signed an 11 movie deal to appear as Batman for DC / Warner Bros. Jason Momoa, ‘Kahl Drogo’ from Game of Thrones, (has been confirmed to play Aquaman in Batman v Superman : Dawn of Justice. Batman v Superman will also feature Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot, The Flash and possibly Cyclops, besides the obvious Batman, Ben Affleck, and Superman, Henry Cavill.

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).

upcoming Marvel & DC superhero movies 2015 thru 2020

upcoming Marvel & DC superhero movies 2015 thru 2020 (well, sorta. this list is all that we know so far..)

marvel has planned out superhero movies thru 2036, but hasn’t released the titles yet. the race is on to produce a female lead superhero film. marvel will introduce many new female heroines, but the most likely first female lead superheroes will be Black Widow and Capt Marvel (Ms Marvel/Carol Danvers), not either, but both. Capt Marvel will be introduced, most likely in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and aid in the defeat of Thanos in Avengers 3. Black Widow is necessary to further the plot line with Capt America & the Winter Soldier, preparing Bucky to carry the Shield (just in case Steve Rogers “retires” in Avengers 3; Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlet is omnipotent, THE most powerful force in the universe; Adam Warlock (yes, that was his cocoon in Guardians of the Galaxy) and every other Marvel superhero will be needed to defeat Thanos (unfortunately fox & sony own some of them; still hoping they might lease them to Marvel). (note: Ultron & Apocalypse, also bad ass, and also most or all Marvel superhero required for victory). DC and warner bros are finally catching on to Marvel’s interconnected story telling (in the movies, of course, both DC and Marvel comics always have had interconnected plot lines). Batman v Superman will launch Wonder Woman and other superheroes into their own upcoming, respective, stand alone movie.  since Wonder Woman has a projected release date of nov 17, 2017, i’m sure Marvel is rushing its plans to release it’s stand alone Black Widow movie first. we can wait for Carol Danvers (“make it great & we will happily wait”), but we know she is coming.

note that some of these dates have yet to be set, by the movie studios, and are listed as general months or seasons. exact dates have been confirmed by the movie studios. some movie titles may change, are listed as  ‘unconfirmed,’ a best-guess scenario based on clues from the movies studios or leaked rumors. often studio situations, marketing, production and contracts change, thus delaying a movie release. studios often reserve release dates years in advance, for a projected plan, but plans do change. for years 2019 and 2020, only reserved dates have been confirmed.
