Good news, everybody! The Marvel Cinematic Universe production machine is kicking back into some kind of gear! The TV shows have resumed filming, and work is apparently being done on Ant-Man 3 because Deadline has announced the casting of actor Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror!
Marvel hasn’t officially commented on the role, but Deadline isn’t about to report something like this without some confidence. So I would say this is pretty solid casting news.
And it’s cool news, too! Kang the Conqueror stands to be a great villain, and hopefully Majors isn’t just going to be part of Ant-Man 3. Why is he part of a considerably small movie, instead of Avengers 5? Because Ant-Man has led the charge into time travel in the MCU, and Kang is all about that stuff!
Plus, rumors are apparently also swirling that Ant-Man 3 will be a kick-off for the Young Avengers, what with the older Cassie Lang surely getting ready to suit up herself. And Kang was a big part of the Young Avengers.
So this is all exciting news! I haven’t seen Majors in anything yet, but he’s been getting a ton of roles recently. I’m due to start watching him in Lovecraft Country any day now, just gotta get around to starting.
Hooray for new MCU news!
If this were a better world, we’d all be watching Black Widow on the big screen this weekend. If this were a better world, I’d have a giant stack of new comics to read and review this weekend. If this were a better world, Best Buy would have the Nintendo Switch in stock. But it’s not a better world. It’s a coronavirus world.
So let’s pass the time by ranking all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies!
Way back in 2015, about halfway through the MCU as we know it today, I did my first ranking of all the Marvel movies. I’m still fairly happy with the list. But a lot has changed since then. Most specifically, the Infinity Saga came to an end! And now it’ll be more than a year between installments as Black Widow and Phase 4 have been pushed back to November.
So yeah, on this traditional Marvel movie release weekend, join me after the jump to see my personal ranking of all the MCU movies! Keep in mind, I’m a devoted fanboy and I love all these films, even the ones other people say are bad. They’re all great. I just like some more than others.
Keep in mind: this is not a ranking of the quality of the films. This is my personal love of the MCU. Expect full bias and preferential treatment.
Man! When I woke up this morning, I didn’t think I’d have anything to share on the ol’ blog today. It just seemed like that kind of Monday! But then I found that cool Mortal Kombat railer. And now, even better, Marvel has randomly dropped a brand new Black Widow trailer!
Still looks awesome! I don’t expect this film to pull off Avengers: Endgame numbers, and that’s fine. I think the world is ready for a more chill Marvel movie. This one looks good. It looks to be full of action, full of fun characters and will hopefully tell a really nice story.
Black Widow comes out on May 1!
The first trailer for the upcoming Black Widow movie came out of nowhere last week, and I liked it! Of course, I’m a huge Marvel fanboy, so I’m probably going to like everything they produce from now until the heat death of the universe. So you best believe I’m excited for Black Widow!
But what’s going to be in the movie? We know it takes place prior to Avengers: Infinity War. We know Taskmaster is the villain, and that Natasha will team up with the other comic book Black Widow, as well as Red Guardian. And we know it’s going to be heavy on the crazy action and adventure. There’s probably also going to be some trouble with the Red Room.
Still, there’s a lot of movie left wide open for cameos, Easter Eggs, callbacks and more. So join me after the jump for the little things I’d like to see in the Black Widow movie! And feel free to share some of your own ideas in the comments!
The next Marvel movie is Black Widow, a trip into the past to explore Natasha’s spy life in Russia. Black Widow comes out on May 1 and we haven’t seen too much news…until Marvel decided to randomly and awesomely release the first trailer! And it’s a trailer packed with stuff!
Looks awesome! David Harbour obviously steals the show as Red Guardian. But we’ve got a good look at Taskmaster! And the other Black Widow. And our main Black Widow looks great in a white costume!
Word has it this takes place shortly after Captain America: Civil War, which sounds good to me! What an exciting surprise this trailer was today!
