Final thoughts on the #MarvelEvent

Final thoughts on the #MarvelEvent  

I'll start with this awesome picture posted earlier by Robert Downey Jr. on Twitter showing the 3 Avengers we will see in Captain America – Civil War

First a down point: I was hoping to see a new Hulk movie. Mark Rufallo is an amazing actor and he should get his own movie before he starts being too old to play Banner. There's so much material in Hulk lore, it shouldn't be hard to pick something.

Now, most of these announced movies have been speculated in one form or another for some time now, so it's nice to see them all being made official. A cynic would say DC forced their hand to reveal all of this after the bomb they dropped a couple of weeks ago but I think now that the Age of Ultron trailer is out, it's a good time to announce what's next.

What did surprise me is they said Civil War is the start of Phase 3, which begs the question: where does Ant-Man stand? I've not seen any news about Ant-Man but that would mean this will be the final Phase 2 movie, meaning it might resolve some threads left after Age of Ultron. Given that Pym was originally the creator of Ultron you can't help but wonder if they'll work that relationship in somehow.

Moving on to Dr Strange, it seems they'll dodge the whole "magic" storyline and turn it into some science of parallel universes. I'm not quite sure why they can't just have magic but okay, as long as it makes sense. As there's been no confirmation that Benedict Cumberbatch will have the role, there's either negociations still going on or that trail has gone cold. The former is more likely.

I'm really excited to see Captain Marvel confirmed, and seeing as it's not Miss Marvel, we can assume it may not be an origins story. Carol Danvers is awesome, I hope they can make a great movie with her.

Now going back to Civil War, I'm going to assume they'll do something like Age of Ultron_ and not necessarily follow the same storyline as in the comics as they don't have nearly enough heroes to pull that one off and they would pretty much need the X-Men, or at the very least Wolverine (and Spiderman). As it's a Cap movie it won't involve all the Avengers so I wonder how they'll modify the storyline.

And I'm glad they're bringing T'challa before his own movie, I have a feeling he'll be instrumental in rebuilding Cap's shield which we've seen will get broken somehow in Age of Ultron, he may even be in that post-credits scene I bet they haven't filmed yet.

Thor Ragnarok will apparently have some pretty dire consequences to the MCU. I'm not sure if again the storyline will be the same (no spoilers but it's pretty grim, as the title suggest, Ragnarok is the Viking end of the world basically). Here's hoping they'll introduce Amora*, The Enchantress seeing as we saw her sister in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. last season.

The Inhumans will be interesting. The movie is due to be released about 4 years from now, many of the theories behind the alien stuff going on in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is theorised to be of Inhuman origin. Personally I think it would be a great way to introduce them before they get their own movie as I suspect many people aren't very familiar with them. They've not featured in any of the Marvel animated series I have seen for instance.

And finally, Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet will close Phase 3 in a 2-parter Avengers movie. This isn't unexpected, we knew this was building up to that but at that point the roster of heroes introduced in movies and television will be:
Iron Man
The Hulk
Thor
Captain America
Black Widow
Hawkeye
The Winter Soldier (yes I count him as a hero for now)
Falcon
War Machine
Scarlet Witch
Quicksilver
The Vision
Ant-Man
Doctor Strange
Captain Marvel
Black Panther
The Guardians of the Galaxy (who may or may not cross over to join the Avengers)
Mockingbird
Daredevil
Iron Fist
Luke Cage
Jessica Jones

Not to mention all other supporting cast we might not have seen yet (eg The Wasp)

So this is going to be one hell of a ride, and I can't wait to join in the fun.
