Last Thursday night was a crazy night! Disney held their annual investor summit and, since there were no comic-cons this year, they basically announced EVERYTHING they had coming up for Disney, Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel. As everyone here well knows, I love all of those things! So last Thursday was like Christmas come early.
I didn’t have the time or energy to write individual blog posts for every single awesome thing to come out of the summit. I shared a bunch of the trailers, which are the best part! Now this list is about some of the other bits and pieces I enjoyed! A ton of new content was announced and I want to share my favorite bits. We already knew about a lot of things, like Tatiana Maslany cast as She-Hulk and the Ms. Marvel show. We also knew the Fantastic Four movie was coming. So this list is about new things we learned at the summit, the things I am, personally, most excited about! Big and small!
So join me after the jump for some truly great upcoming geekery!Read the rest of this entry
One of the fun bits of Marvel Cinematic Universe news to come out of New York Comic-Con was that Marvel has commissioned a script for a Dark Avengers movie. That sounds good to me! They’ve got to try new and interesting things in Phase 4, and a team-up movie about a bad guy Avengers sounds as good as anything.
Technically speaking, the Dark Avengers from the comics were a team of villains put together to operate as the real Avengers under the dark reign of Norman Osborn. As far as the public knew, Osborn was a good guy, and the Avengers were the Avengers, even though he had Bullseye posing as Hawkeye, Venom posing as Spider-Man, Moonstone posing as Ms. Marvel and Daken posing as Wolverine, among other notable members like Ares and Sentry. So we’ve got villains posing as classic heroes to the public.
I doubt any of that is going to happen in the MCU. None of those characters are set up and sticking to the comics would make no sense. So if we had to put together a Dark Avengers based on the existing MCU, who should we put on the team? I have some ideas!
