All of Marvel’s Announcements From Today’s Huge Press Event (Updated)

GameStop, Inc.

ElCapitan

This tweet from Marvel’s Executive Editorial Director of digital media, Ryan Penagos, AKA @AgentM, pretty much sums up the event held this morning at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood.

 

The announcements came swift and hard, some surprising, others not so much, but all of them big news for the world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s fair to say that Marvel’s Phase 3 is going to be bigger, better, and more diverse than anything that came before it. Their plans are epic in scope, and much farther reaching than even I knew. One of the biggest items of the day was that Marvel finally announced a Black Panther film starring Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, King of Wakanda. B1Dg3sECAAEfz-t We even got a peak at some concept artwork that is sure to please the fans, sticking much closer to his comic book look than expected, but streamlined to go along with the MCU’s aesthetics. BP Here are a couple pictures of Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. welcoming Chadwick Boseman to the MCU. They look like good friends already. “I’m blessed to be a part of this Marvel Universe, to work with you both and to make magic together,” Boseman said.  

  But that’s not all, in a move that fans have been waiting for, Marvel also announced a Captain Marvel film for 2018. This will be the first female led movie of the MCU, and the first female superhero movie in this modern age of comic based films (Supergirl was decades ago, Elektra was an assassin, Catwoman was a vengeful thief). When asked why a Captain Marvel movie instead of a Black Widow one, Feige stated, “It’s about bringing new characters to the screen. Black Widow couldn’t be more important as an Avenger, and her part in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ is very, very big and further develops and enhances her saga.” B1DdVMLCIAAKHj5.jpg large No word yet on who will be wearing the, I’m assuming, Jaimie McKelvie based outfit. Hell, no word on anything really, but we have a date, and confirmation that it’s Carol Danvers in the suit, and that’s a good sign. One more bit of a shocker was that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is getting pushed forward a bit, which I guess really isn’t all that surprising as the film has proved to be a worldwide success, and Marvel wants to get the sequel out as soon as possible. B1DiB0ZCcAEVmg7.jpg large All of my Inhumans speculation on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been somewhat confirmed today as well, with the announcement of an Inhumans movie for 2018. I expect as the date gets closer Marvel will be seeding hints throughout it’s TV shows and films. Since they can’t use the X-Men, or even the term “mutant”, it makes perfect sense to use the Terrigen Mists to explain superpowers in the MCU. This makes me wonder, with all of the cosmic based movies/characters/properties coming, if there might be a live action Kree/Skrull war in our future. B1DdgVGCIAAENtS.jpg large Also brought up was a film that’s been in the news cycle for the past couple of days; Doctor Strange. There was no mention of Benedict Cumberbatch, or any actor for that matter, leading me to believe that casting has not yet taken place. “If it were confirmed, we would introduce him today,” Feige said. B1Dc9xpCQAAfq_a.jpg large But these are just the tip of the iceberg, as Marvel’s Phase 3 begins with the highly anticipated even before it was announced Captain America: Civil War! The fan-favorite storyline pitted Captain America against Iron Man, and broke the hero community right down the middle. Expect the film to have a very similar storyline, with probable tweaks (Spidey is after all still hands off). This is also where we meet the Black Panther. “We will meet him for the first time in ‘Civil War,’ in costume”, Feige said. CivilWar Also announced was Thor: Ragnarok, a title that fans had been speculating on for months. This looks to be the most epic Thor film yet, continuing Marvel’s trend of “wars” for Phase 3… Ragnarok Culminating in the third Avengers film, Infinity War! This film will finally bring closure to the post-credits scene from the first Avengers film, bringing the Earths Mightiest Heroes head-to-head with the villainous Thanos, Mad God of Titan. An epic so huge it had to be split into two parts! InfinityWar Here’s the official order of Marvel’s Phase 3 films: 5/6/16 – Captain America: Civil War 11/4/16 – Doctor Strange 5/5/17 – Guardians of the Galaxy 2 7/28/17 – Thor: Ragnarok 11/3/17 – Black Panther 5/4/18 – Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 7/6/18 – Captain Marvel 11/2/18 – Inhumans 5/3/19 – Avengers: Infinity War Part 2

Well, that’s it from Marvel’s press event, as if that isn’t enough for you, you greedy bastards. We’ll keep you up to date if any more news comes in. How about we finish up with a couple of photos from the event?
