It has been announced that Martin Freeman will be joining the cast of Captain America: Civil War!

We don’t know anything about who he will be playing but Kevin Feige said, “We couldn’t be more honored or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” I am hoping this means he will appear in more than just one movie;)!

Who do you hope he plays in Captain America:Civil War?

Spiderman is Taking His Place in the Marvel Universe

When Marvel started making movies after the Disney buyout we all began wondering if the Marvel movie universe would ever be united. The first step in unification has been announced!

Sony and Marvel have announced that Spiderman will be appearing in a Marvel movie before the next installment of the Sony Spiderman series. Then Kevin Feige will co-produce the new Spiderman movie and will help craft the new creative direction for Spiderman. But the Spiderman movies will remain in financial and final creative control of Sony.

This is really interesting. And I wonder what this means for the future unification of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (SMU)? Is Sony going to be the only studio to play ball? I think that would be a mistake for the other studios but we shall see!

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron Trailer

The 2nd Age of Ultron trailer has hit the interwebs! I am really interested to see how The Vision and the Scarlet Witch’s story lines will compare to the comic books.

I am also curious who the scruffy man is. He reminds me of Wolverine (not Hugh Jackman but the character;) but we know that can’t be. And he doesn’t look like Paul Bettany to me so he can’t be The Vision. Hmm… I haven’t researched at all yet so I may report back;).

So what do you think? Are you excited or already disappointed because of the changes to the stories we already know? I am excited and looking for to this premiere and the Daredevil show that will premiere in April. Big spring for Marvel!

I do believe that Marvel will soon run the world;). So can we get Iron Man to pop over to France to deal with things;)?

Official Word on Cumberbatch and Doctor Strange

DoctorStrange

It feels like we have been talking about Doctor Strange forever! But finally we have real and official news!

The illustrious and much drooled over Benedict Cumberbatch is going to be playing Doctor Stephen Strange. Yes, it is true. We finally have a title actor for the movie that won’t start filming until like summer of 2015 and won’t come out until November of 2016. Just kidding, sort of.

I have been following the “who will play Strange” path all along. I must say, I thought Joaquin Phoenix would have been great too. Not as good as Cumberbatch but good. But it does feel a little silly how on the edge of our seat we have all been about it.

That said, it is going to be fantastic! In 2 years;).

Guardians of the Galaxy – Gamora Featurette and a Game!

Guardians of the Galaxy Game

Guardians of the Galaxy will be opening soon on August 1st! But to tie us all over there are a couple of tasty little things!

There is a new game called Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon. It ranges between $7.99 (from the Windows Store) or $4.99 (from the Windows Phone Store). It looks super cute and there is a trailer of for the game!

There is also a new featurette all about Gamora.

It looks like she is going to be a great, strong female character. I have really been impressed with how well Marvel has been handling and empowering these character. Of course I naturally give Joss Whedon all the credit but…

So who is planning on checking out as soon as it hits theaters?

Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer

This isn’t a super new trailer but cute. But there is a little snippet that seems to tell you even more about the movie.

I am expecting a kind of kitsch movie but I think it will also look pretty awesome too. I don’t come to it with a whole lot of foreknowledge so it will all be new to me.

How about you? Are you familiar with the Guardians of the Galaxy comics? Do you have high expectations? Let me know in the comments!

Guardians of the Galaxy

Captain America is Coming Back! Let the Real Coverage Begin!

I know it isn’t news but extended trailers are always nice! I am really intrigued to see just how pivotal The Falcon and Black Widow are going to be. And will that lead to their own movies?

And of course I am not the only one thinking and talking about Captain America;). Surf & Sunshine is talking about what she learned about the Shield in her interview with the property master!

What great (and insightful) coverage have you found out there?

Fifth Estate Featurette

Dreamworks has released a featurette of the much anticipated Fifth Estate starring no other than the fabulous Mr. Benedict Cumberbatch!I can’t wait to see this, not only for Cumberbatch, because I think it will be a great retelling of the Wikileaks situation and the relationships involved.

It is coming out October 18. 2013. Are you looking forward to it or am I out on my own?
