The big reveal is here! The trailer for The Avengers: Infinity War was released earlier today and it looks like it will be awesome! Disney and Marvel seems to know how to put together a major superhero flick featuring an ensemble cast. All of your favorites are back including Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, and even Tom Holland and Chadwick Boseman as Spider-Man and Black Panther respectively. May 4th, 2018. Save the date.
Although the trailer for the upcoming movie about the Asgardian Prince has been out for a couple of days, that doesn’t diminish how awesome this trailer is. This installment in the MCU and Thor Universe is going to be an exciting one for sure. The tone of this film will be completely different and really show off Chris Hemsworth’s comedic chops. Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and Anthony Hopkins return as Loki, Heimdall, and Odin respectively. Newcomers Jeff Goldblum and Cate Blanchett join the film as the former will portray The Grandmaster, while the latter portrays the super evil villainess Hela. Not to mention that a very special friend of Thors’ will play a major part in this film. Thor: Ragnarok will be in theaters this November.
“The Civil War begins”
With a bunch of characters giving us the feel of another “Avengers” type of film, Captain America: Civil War pits Captain America and Iron Man on two separate sides of the Superhero Registration Act. I recommend that you guys not only read the Civil War comic series, but also check out the video game, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. Although this game came out back in 2009, it allows you to eventually play out this major “politically” based storyline. The memories I have of that game are fantastic! The epic film releases May 6, 2016. Check out the official trailer.
Two blockbuster movies that are both expected in theaters this year have released more revealing trailers earlier today. Not sure what the idea is, but the new Terminator trailer seems to be full of spoilers. The Ant-Man trailer shows Paul Rudd in action and includes some of his interactions with ants. Both movies are due out in July and I’m more excited about Ant-Man. I’m not too excited to the point in which I’ll be rushing to see it opening weekend, but still excited nonetheless. Long term, I want to see how Paul Rudd fits into the Avengers cast if they decide to go that way. I am more interested in Ant-Man being a part of the team and not as a solo character. Paul Rudd would be gold in the copious amount of banter that takes place between Earth’s mightiest heroes. Look out for Thomas The Tank Engine in the Ant-Man trailer. Which blockbuster are you more excited for?
As for Terminator, T1 and T2 are classics and the expectations are very high.
Comic book fans feel rejoiced. Earlier today Ryan Reynolds tweeted out our very first look at Deadpool channeling Burt Reynolds. Deadpool’s outfit is straight from the comics. Ryan Reynolds is back at the helm as Wade Wilson, a mercenary who is going to bring laughter to moviegoers with his sense humor and breaking of the fourth wall. Deadpool is the perfect character to be adapted to the big screen. His interactions with the audience, and other superheroes should be priceless. I’m glad Ryan Reynolds is back again since portraying him in the Wolverine Origins debacle. He is absolutely the right guy for the part. So good thing they brought him back. Deadpool will be released in February 2016.
Ever since the announcement of the cast for the reboot of The Fantastic Four, I have been looking forward to that moment when we would be exposed to a teaser of sorts. That moment is now. See Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell as Mr Fantastic, The Human Torch, The Invisible Woman, and The Thing respectively. Expect to see the film in theaters this summer.
