Marvel Has Plans for Ms. Marvel

Marvel

In a move that’s not surprising in context, but still fantastic, Kevin Feige revealed in an interview with the BBC Arabic’s Husam Asi, that after Captain Marvel is released to the world, Marvel has plans to reveal fan-favorite Muslim hero, Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel. A Pakistani-American, Khan was introduced to Marvel readers back in 2014. She capable of stretching her limbs to great lengths and widths, as well as the ability to grow or shrink to incredible sizes.

We’re doing Captain Marvel right now. Captain Marvel‘s shooting right now with Brie Larson. Ms. Marvel, which is another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, is definitely sort-of in the works. We have plans for that once we’ve introduced Captain Marvel to the world.

Luke Cage Season 2 Full Trailer Now Online

Netflix and Marvel Studios has released the first full trailer for Luke Cage season 2, set to drop on June 22nd. After clearing his name, Luke Cage has become a hero to Harlem, and a cultural icon in his community. He’s become untouchable, and feared on the streets, but the sudden appearance of Bushmaster, the only man who seems to be able to break the Unbreakable Man, puts all the security Luke has built in jeopardy.

Mike Colter returns as Luke Cage, with Simone Missick as Misty Knight, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Alfre Woodard as Mariah Dillard, Theo Rossi as Shades, and Finn Jones as Danny Rand, aka Iron Fist. Newcomers to the series include Mustafa Shakir (The Deuce) as John McIver, aka Bushmaster; and Gabrielle Dennis (Rosewood) as Tilda Johnson.

Fortnite’s next big limited event will feature a Marvel crossover that will change the entire landscape of the game for a short time. Starting tomorrow, Thanos will be making an appearance in FortniteAccording to Entertainment Weekly, the mode will feature 100 players vying for the top spot, with an available Infinity Gauntlet weapon hidden on the map. The player that finds the Gauntlet will transform into Thanos, granting them some pretty superhuman abilities.

Currently, what those abilities are exactly remain under wraps, but expect some pretty ridiculous happenings as the biggest villain in cinematic history makes his presence felt across all media.

Did Thanos Kill You?

thanos

A new website is making the rounds asking a very simple question, with a very simple answer. If you haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War yet, you may want to stop here! At the end of the film, Thanos snaps his fingers and erases half of all life in the Universe, and now you can stop wondering whether you would have survived.

DidThanosKill.Me is answering the question in a very minimalist way, and it’s worth checking out for the novelty. Good news: I was spared. Let me know in the comments if you survived, or not!

Deadpool Debuts New Celine Dion Single… Yup

DP

Yes, you read that correctly. Celine Dion has unveiled a new single titled “Ashes,” alongside the official video for it, starring The Merc With a Mouth himself, Deadpool. Deadpool 2 has, like the first film, been firing on all cylinders from a promotional standpoint with a clear understanding of the character and how to promote him.

You can check out the hilarious music video after the jump, and make sure to stay for the ending, which is, of course, the high point.

New Ant-Man and the Wasp Trailer Debuts

Marvel Studios has unveiled the newest full trailer for Ant-Man and the Wasp, and aside from showing a ton of new footage, it also gives us a few of the mysterious plot points with our first good look at Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen) and her motivations for stealing Pym technology.

Much of the movie is still a mystery, but after the intensely emotional Avengers: Infinity War, it looks like Ant-Man and the Wasp may be just the antidote to get us all going again. Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 5th.

DC
This OMAC story has been firing on all cylinders since all of the pieces fell into place, and with the General basically forcing Tim to become his future self, there are a lot of questions to be answered. The biggest being how does Batman fix the mental and emotional damage that Ulysses just instilled into Tim? Will it just be a part of the OMAC Program that will disappear once it’s out of his system? There are a lot of questions to be answered here, and I can’t wait for the next issue.
GL
Oh man, the Darkstars are in full control, using the Controllers as an energy source and psychic link for each other, but now they’re just normal people, augmented by the power of the Darkstars. That’s a great twist on what they’ve been in the past, and a great way to modernize them. The biggest question to come out of this, though, is who the Green Lantern Corps plans to pick up to help them in their fight. I’m seeing a whole bunch of Yellow Lanterns and villains showing up at this point.
FL
This was an emotional epilogue/prologue for Flash War that really tied up a lot of loose character threads, but opened the door to so many new mysteries. Iris remembers Wally! But she seems to remember even more than we think, as she somehow triggers all of Wally’s Pre-52 memories. That’s a crazy thought to imagine, but here we are, as continuities begin to merge and shift, and little by little the DC Universe restores itself naturally to its original world. First Superman, now Flash… who’s next?
SIL
It’s just so random to me that The Silencer is far and away the best book of the New Age of Heroes. This book has seamlessly created an entirely new world within the DC Universe, and effortlessly merged a select group of heroes into it, in such a precise and fantastic way. The characters are charming, and have flaws but still work so well. On top of that, the art in this is always top-notch. First Romita, now Capullo. These are some serious heavy-hitters working on this book, and it’s awesome.
TER
I’ll enjoy literally anything that I read with Plastic Man in it, because his humor and quick wit is such a delight that it just makes everything so fun. This was still enjoyable, but Mr. Terrific is certainly out of his element working with a team after going solo on Earth-2 for so many years. Hopefully he comes around soon, and starts caring about these people that’s bound to by the Dark Multiverse.
WW
Darkseid is defeated by his own greed, and lust for power. He stole the energy from Gods well beyond himself and paid the price when it was used against him. A good play, I must admit. Bit by bit, Jason is endearing himself, and he just keeps getting more and more powerful. First he received some crazy armor that helped strengthen and control his abilities, and now he received Hippolyta’s spear. Something is going on there. There’s a bigger plan for Jason, I can feel it.
THOR
That was one hell of a way to send off one of the best characters Marvel has introduced. Mighty Thor was emotional, and flawed, but layered in a way so few characters are ever allowed to be. She was a perfect embodiment of the divine and the human, and no other character will ever capture it this way. The Odinson has some heavy shoes to fill, but it should be a great read… where we go from here.

First Full Venom Trailer Debuts!

Sony Pictures have debuted the first full trailer for Venom, and it is one hell of a ride! The trailer gives us all new footage, shots of Venom’s trademark tendrils, and confirmation of the symbiote anti-hero himself through a horrifyingly fantastic transformation sequence.

You can watch the trailer above, and hit the jump to check out the newest poster for the film, as well. Venom hits theaters October 5th.

Kevin Feige Shares News on Spider-Man Sequel

SM

Spider-Man: Homecoming was a very personal, down to earth story, that really brought Peter Parker down to our level, but it looks like post-Infinity War the webhead is about to traverse the globe. Kevin Feige shared the first details on the upcoming Spider-Man sequel, stating that we should expect quite the globetrotting film as Peter tries to detal with the ramifications of the next two Avengers films.

“We start filming early July,” Feige said. “We film in London. We shot first film in Atlanta. And we shoot a lot of films in London but there’s another reason we’re shooting in London which is, yes, Spidey, of course, will spend some time in New York, but he’ll spend some time in other parts of the globe. We loved how the events of ‘Civil War,’ for as dramatic and intense and politically complex as they were, we loved how Peter dealt with it [in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’],” said Fiege. “And how Peter dealt with it is, he then went and tried to go back to a normal life. What is it like to try to go back to a normal life after what happens in this movie [‘Infinity War]? Not to mention what happens in the next [‘Avengers’] movie. It’s fun to see that, because he can represent, you know, the world as a whole, as they try to move forward. And you can do it in a way that is tonally unique, and tonally different than, certainly, the two ‘Avengers’ films that people are about to see.”

The Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel hits theaters on July 5th, 2019.

Marvel’s Return of the Fantastic Four Trailer Drops

Final Deadpool 2 Red Band Trailer Introduces X-Force

Sony Pictures has posted the final red band trailer for Deadpool 2, and it’s quite a ride. Introducing the entire X-Force and their abilities, as well as giving us plenty of new footage. Deadpool 2 as it is finally officially called, riffs hard on the Marvel Cinematic and DC Universes, with some pretty hearty jabs just in this trailer, so expect plenty more in the full film.

Additionally, tickets are on sale now, so grab them while you can, because Deadpool 2 hits theaters on May 18th.

New Infinity War IMAX Poster Debuts

imax

He’s got the whole world in his hands…

That song is given new meaning on the new Avengers: Infinity War IMAX Poster that was debuted this morning. Infinity War was filmed entirely on IMAX cameras, so the film is going to look spectacular on the massive screen, and it’s no surprise that Marvel is pushing it as such.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27th worldwide, and is poised for a $230 million plus opening weekend domestically. Hit the jump for a look at the beautifully simple poster.

THANOS
This was a beautiful end to a beautiful story arc. This is honestly one of the best ways to a story like this ending that I have ever seen. The thought that Thanos is so strong-willed and powerful that just the thought of never becoming his future self erases his self from existence. It was instantaneous… no drama, no waiting with baited breath. It was quick, and a solid ending for an fantastic story.
DC
THAT. WAS. AWESOME. Call me gullible, but never in a million years would I have expected Ulysses Armstrong to take control of a newly created Brother Eye, and recreate OMAC. That was such an incredible reveal for the Rebirth introduction of OMAC. That absolutely blew my mind. I knew this story was going in some pretty great places, but the Colony is being destroyed from the inside before it even had a chance to get going, and that’s pretty great.
GL
The return of the Darkstars! It’s been quite a while since the Darkstars were able to make an impact on the Green Lantern Corps, but their build-up, between this book and even the ending pages of Metal, has made them already a formible and intimidating enemy. The story of Tomar-Tu almost seems to have been tailor-made for this, as well… like this is what they’ve been working towards with him from the beginning of Rebirth.
SW
Thus far, Sideways is the weakest of the New Age of Heroes books, with his story taking longer than the others to really kick into gear. On top of that, he also feels the most distant from the rest of the DC Universe, with all of his supporting cast being new to the world. Hopefully things change in the next issue or so, and it starts to ramp up a bit more.
FLASH
A lot of good loose ends tied up here at the end of this arc, and the splash page with the entire Flash family running together legitimately gave me goosebumps. It’s build-up and satisfying moments like that, that make comic books worth it with these larger than life characters. Now, we’re inching closer to Flash War, and I can’t wait.
WW
It’s been such a mystery to what end Darkseid has been trying to hard to reach Themyscira, but it was a bit of a let-down that his entire goal was to turn the Amazons into Parademons. It’s entirely possible there’s more to his plan here, but so far this isn’t quite what I expected. At least the fight between Diana and Darkseid was brutal as hell. That was perfect.
