Everyone’s favorite Wakandan nerd Shuri will grace the pages of her own comic book. In a press release, Marvel revealed that the comic book based on the Black Panther character will launch in October.

The Shuri comic book will be crafted by a team of well-known and established creatives. They include Nnedi Okorafor, a Nigerian-American award-winning writer who has penned several science-fiction and fantasy books; and Leonardo Romero, an award-winning artist whose work can currently been seen in the Marvel comic book, Immortal Hulk. Okorafor has written previously for comics—her work appears in Marvel’s digital comic book Black Panther: Long Live the King.

The premise of the comic book “will bring a domestic conflict to the princess’s tablewhile she is the most at home in her lab, working to keep her country at the forefront of science and technology, Wakanda is missing its leader. Without T’Challa around, Shuri will have to decide if she will forego her own passions in order to stand up for her nation,” according to the press release.

The residual effects of the Black Panther film still linger. The movie, which opened on Feb. 16, 2018, is set to earn $ 700 million, domestically, according to Forbes. Black Panther director Ryan Coogler’s career has skyrocketed. He is currently working on the highly anticipated Creed II starring his frequent movie-making partner, Michael B. Jordan.

Black Panther also dominated the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards, winning best film. Chadwick Boseman also won for Best Performance in a Movie.

In an emailed statement to Bustle, Okorafor stated, “[Shuri is] an African young woman of genius level intelligence who is obsessed with technology and has traveled spiritually so far into the past that she’s seen Wakanda before it was Wakanda. The Ancestors call her Ancient Future. And she’s super ambitious. What do I love about her? Alllll that and more. She’s a character in the Marvel Universe who really sings to me.”

A Marvel Cinematic Universe Newcomer Attempts to Unravel ‘Infinity War’

While I’m a film fan, delving into the Marvel Cinematic Universe has never particularly appealed to me. I can see the interest in a fantastical, multi-faceted world with energy and heroism in abundance, but Nordic Noir, dark British indie dramas and mumblecore are more my things. It’s not as if everything I like has to be grounded in reality: Gremlins, for example, thankfully wasn’t a documentary. But given the MCU’s huge commercial success and positive reviews, I’m clearly the one in the wrong. How to rectify that? By throwing myself in at the deep end and making ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ my first MCU film.

There’s one problem with that otherwise simple solution. Without seeing any of the previous MCU films in the franchise, I’m missing any semblance of context.

What I Think is Happening…


Thanos-Infinity-War
A malevolent d–head, apparently.

The battle between forces of good and evil is self-explanatory. On first impression, Thanos is an oversized malevolent d–head out to do galactic-scale harm purely for anti-hero bantz. But everyone knows that such linear bad guys are outdated, so clearly there’s more to it than that. Eventually, his vulnerability and motivation is revealed: a fear of over-population that reduced his home planet of to a wasteland.

The motivation behind the actions of the Avengers and their associates is therefore simple. If Thanos obtains all six stones, he acquires God-like powers which he’ll use for mass genocide.

The Avengers’ cultural presence is such that I recognise the vast majority of the characters, even if their backstories and specific skills aren’t always immediately apparent. Spider-Man and Iron Man? Yeah, makes sense. Wong’s cross-dimensional portal? Not so much but I get the basics. That said, Benedict Cumberbatch dressed as an aristocratic hybrid of British TV stalwart Noel Edmonds and flamboyant TV interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen takes me by surprise. And Loki has the appearance of a Tory festooned in a rock star’s haircut. As for Bruce Banner’s inability to go full Hulk? I’m not certain, but it could be a euphemism for erectile dysfunction.


Loki
Rock star, superhero, or leader of the Young Conservatives?

The characters constantly refer to past dramas: a labyrinthine back-plot of death, destruction, rivalry and family drama that feels like a pan-galactic, amphetamine-fuelled Eastenders omnibus. Given that I have no idea what the hell anyone is on about, I establish a quick way to compartmentalise my lack of understanding – let’s put it down to a long-running beef about how much everyone gets paid by Marvel.

The battle scenes are similarly baffling. An inner logic as to who emerges victorious must exist, but without a basic grounding in each character’s powers and next to no knowledge of how that might be applied strategically, I’m as good as lost.

The same goes for the different planets. I get Edinburgh (and the “We will deep fry your kebab” sign ignites my appetite) but how the others came to be eludes me. The advanced tech of Wakanda is cool as, though, even if the offensive tactics of what my notes describe as “those Predator/dog/dinosaur things” have a Lemmings-esque naivety which means most of them get wiped out in moments.

No Resurrections This Time?


Infinity War
They can save the world but they're terrible at DIY.

Doctor Strange’s decision to sacrifice a vital stone to Thanos in order to save Tony Stark seems like a bizarre choice until I remember Strange’s ability to foresee every outcome from the conflict. There was one possible positive outcome from millions of scenarios. They’re odds that would immediately kill the entire betting industry stone dead. Ol’ Tone, therefore, must be key to finally finishing off Thanos in the future.

The big question is the fate of those killed off. I suspect those slain in regular combat are dead forever – no-one appears to have the power to reanimate a corpse, and conveniently not all of those characters are big box office draws. But there’s surely some way for those whose matter was disintegrated by Thanos to return.


Commuters crack after delays between Edinburgh and London.

I have just enough Marvel education to expect some post-credits action. We’re in New York. Looks like Thanos is getting on with the busy work of eliminating most of mankind. Samuel L. Jackson is here with thingy from How I Met Your Mother. They too disintegrate but not before Jackson hits a panic button. He’s trying to send a message to someone who can get the world out of this most sticky of predicaments. But who?

Is there a key hero I don’t know about who can undo these deaths? I haven’t seen Ant-Man, but my uninformed perception is that he’s the Tottenham of the MCU: entertaining but unlikely to win much. Or maybe we’ll see a new Guardians of the Galaxy-style team who might be able to succeed where Groot and Mr Raccoon failed? And “Thanos will be back”? Isn’t he the one behind this mess? Or is he now going to take his obliteration to Wakanda and beyond?

It’s a brave decision to end on a massive downer like The Empire Strikes Back while setting up the sequel without entirely selling out the fact that this is part of a greater whole. The MCU might not be a world I understand, but it’s clear why millions of people keep coming back.

The Avengers will return in the as-yet-untitled concluding part of Infinity War in 2019. The latest instalment in the MCU, Ant-Man and the Wasp, is currently in US and Australian cinemas and hits UK screens on August 3.

Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 Timeline Explained (UPDATED)

SPOILER ALERT: Warning, this article contains spoilers from the complete Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline through Avengers: Infinity War. Proceed at your own risk.

An original version of this article appeared on December 13, 2016. It was updated on April 30, 2018 to reflect the events of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War. See subheading “Wrapping Up Phase 3” for the newest info.

The juggernaut franchise that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe launched Phase Three of its plan to dominate cinema in 2016. The year began with the massive superhero slugfest that was Captain America: Civil War, and ended by introducing magic and mysticism in Doctor Strange. Looking ahead to 2017, Phase Three continues with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor: Ragnarok. With another five films scheduled for Phase Three, the MCU will stretch to twenty-two individual films by the end of 2019.

Over the course of fourteen films starting with Iron Man in 2008, numerous interconnecting storylines have been weaved through the narrative. It can be hard to keep them straight, especially when the concepts jump films. Which Infinity Stone is which? How many are there? Who is Thanos? What happened to a certain character? What exactly is shawarma? As 2017 approaches, we look at where the Marvel Cinematic Universe currently stands, and what we can expect in the films to come.

The Avengers


marvel-avengers-lineup

United in their common goal to defend the Earth from alien threats and the scourge of HYDRA, the Avengers soon faced a product of their own (well, mainly Tony Stark and Bruce Banner) creation: Ultron. Although they ultimately won the day, it marked the start of the Avengers’ downfall. In the wake of the battle, the Hulk went missing and Thor returned to Asgard, worried by a vision he had. And both Tony and Clint Barton effectively retired from the field. Steve Rogers organized a new Avengers team with himself and Natasha Romanoff as the core. They were joined by Sam Wilson, James Rhodes, Wanda Maximoff, and Vision.

A disastrous mission to Lagos caused international outrage as many considered that the US-based Avengers were operating unilaterally on foreign soil. This led to the creation of the Sokovia Accords which called for the registration of all super-powered individuals and vigilantes. The Accords also called for regulation of the Avengers under the auspices of an international oversight committee. The signing of the Accords split the Avengers along philosophical lines as they decided to be either pro- or anti-registration. During the signing of the Accords, the meeting was seemingly bombed by the Winter Soldier, killing the king of Wakanda, T’Chaka.

Steve’s refusal to sign the Accords and his insistence that the Winter Soldier was not behind the attack led to a Civil War between the Avengers. By the time the dust settled, the Avengers were torn apart with one major casualty – James Rhodes suffered severe spinal injuries that left him paralysed. Tony also found out that the Winter Soldier was responsible for the deaths of his parents, and that Steve knew the truth, leading to an almighty battle between the three of them. Now, the Avengers Facility stands virtually empty, home to only Tony, Rhodes, and Vision.

Captain America and the Winter Soldier 


captain-america-and-winter-soldier

In the wake of the Avengers Civil War, Steve Rogers has given up his shield. As Tony pointed out at the end of their fight in Siberia, the shield was made for him by Howard Stark. The same Howard Stark who Bucky Barnes – the Winter Soldier – assassinated. And since Bucky is (literally) Steve’s oldest friend, he refuses to abandon him, knowing that he was brainwashed into committing murder. Tony considers him unworthy to wield the shield, and Steve agreed.

But Steve is still Captain America. And Captain America does not leave comrades behind. Because they supported Steve in the Avengers Civil War, Sam Wilson, Clint Barton, Wanda Maximoff, and Scott Lang were imprisoned in the Raft. But Steve could not let them remain incarcerated, and broke them out. Now they are fugitives, but Steve promises Tony that the Avengers will be there when the world needs them. Which, with Thanos after the Infinity Stones, will probably be sooner rather than later.

Appropriately enough, Bucky Barnes lives up to the name of the Winter Soldier once more. Despite being free of HYDRA, Helmut Zemo proved that he was not free of their influence. Using trigger codes, Bucky reverted to the mindless assassin that HYDRA created. Afraid of what he might do if anyone else obtains his trigger codes, Bucky voluntarily returns to cryogenic suspension under the watchful eye of Prince T’Challa in Wakanda until he can be free of HYDRA’s influence.

Black Panther and the nation of Wakanda


black panther 1

Wakanda has come out of its own self-imposed isolation after Vibranium was used by Ultron to create both Vision’s body and his own upgraded form. One of the Wakandan’s outreach missions was in Lagos, and eleven relief aid workers were accidentally killed by Wanda Maximoff as she tried to contain the explosion from Brock Rumalow’s bomb vest. The tragedy in Lagos set into motion the creation of the Sokovia Accords. During the signing, King T’Chaka was killed in a bombing perpetrated by Helmut Zero and blamed on the Winter Soldier.

Prince T’Challa has now taken the mantle of King of Wakanda after the death of his father. Not only is he now ruler of Wakanda, he is the superhero known as the Black Panther. He initially blamed the Winter Soldier for the death of his father and sought vengeance. Eventually, T’Challa discovered that the true culprit was Helmut Zemo. Seeing how the vengeance Zemo held against the Avengers had consumed him, T’Challa refused to follow the same path and let go of his own.

King T’Challa now leads Wakanda as they move into the international community. He has also provided refuge for Bucky Barnes, cryogenically freezing him at his own request to prevent him from being used again to hurt and kill.

Ant-Man and the Wasp


scott-lang-and-hope-van-dyne

By the end of Ant-Man, Scott Lang had found a sense of peace. He was a burgeoning superhero, a real hero to his daughter, Cassie, and finally on friendly(ish) terms with his ex-wife and her new husband. Scott was no longer a wanted man and had paid his debt to society. He was embarking on a romance with Hope van Dyne. And Sam Wilson was looking for him since the Avengers were interested in his abilities. Life was getting pretty interesting for Scott.

Scott’s association with Sam Wilson and the Avengers led to him siding with Steve Rogers during Civil War. During the battle, he demonstrated a new ability to grow to giant-sized proportions. Like all of Steve’s allies, he ended up imprisoned in the Raft after the battle at Flughafen Leipzig-Halle. Steve broke them all out at the end of Civil War, but Scott Lang is once again a man on the run. How that will affect his new relationships is yet to be determined.

Hope van Dyne pleaded with her father, Hank Pym, for years to let her wear the Ant-Man suit and was furious when he passed her over in favor of Scott. But now, Hank is finishing the suit he intended for his wife before she was lost in the Quantum Realm. Hope will become one of the newest superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – the Wasp.

The Guardians of the Galaxy


Guardians Of The Galaxy - The Video Game

A group of ragtag misfits and criminals – Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot – were united by a common love of money and vengeance. They became the Guardians of the Galaxy and lived up to their name. They defended Xandar and the rest of the universe from the machinations of Ronan the Accuser and the Power Stone. But it was not without cost. Groot sacrificed his life to save his comrades. Pardoned for their previous crimes by the Nova Corps, the Guardians resolved to do something good. Or something bad. Or a bit of both.

Ronan may have been the main villain of Guardians, but it was Thanos who set events in motion. Thanos, known as the Mad Titan, is seeking the Infinity Stones for his own ends. Through his machinations, he has now tested the mettle of the Avengers and the Guardians. Thanos is now heading for a confrontation with the assembled superheroes. But not just yet.

Armed with an entirely new soundtrack, the Guardians are joined by unlikely new recruits Yondu, Nebula, and Mantis. They are heading back into adventure, and this time, Peter Quill will be meeting his father. Oh, and Groot? He’s kind of still alive. Or a version of him is, at least. And he is adorable. The biggest question though, will be whether Cosmo the Spacedog will join the team. Or if Howard the Duck will make another cameo.

Thor, Loki, and Asgard


thor_odin_loki

Following the Dark Elf assault on Asgard that left Queen Frigga dead, Asgard stands at a crossroads. Thor left for Earth to be with Jane Foster and generally pal around with the Avengers. Loki was seemingly dead, slain by Kurse in Svartalfheim, and Odin was grieving for his wife. In reality, Loki sits on the throne of Asgard, disguised as Odin after faking his death and returning to Asgard in secret. Whether Odin is dead or alive is currently unclear, and will most likely be cleared up in Thor: Ragnarok.

Loki has his own agenda, and no one on Asgard is any the wiser that their king has been replaced. But Thor knows doom is coming to Asgard. Wanda Maximoff used her powers to give him a vision of Asgard and Heimdall claiming that Thor would lead them all to their deaths. Thor sought clarity in the Water of Sights, and learned that at the time that four of the Infinity Stones had been discovered. Following the defeat of Ultron, Thor returned to Asgard seeking answers.

From the post-credit sequence of Doctor Strange, it becomes clear that Thor learns of Loki’s survival and (presumably) his impersonation of Odin. The brothers come looking for him in New York City, and enlist the help of Doctor Strange. Thor’s absence from the events of Civil War were explained because he was on vacation in Australia, taking some “me time,” and rooming with Darryl. He was not idle however, investigating the Infinity Stones and Thanos (purple, magic glove, doesn’t like standing up).

The Masters of the Mystic Arts


masters-of-the-mystic-arts

The Masters of the Mystic Arts, led by the Ancient One, have protected the Earth from extradimensional and mystical threats for centuries. While heroes like the Avengers protect the physical world, the Masters protect everything else. Their order is secret, spoken of in whispers. But they stand as Earth’s defense against the likes of Dormammu.

Doctor Stephen Strange has now joined their ranks, showing remarkable talents that allowed him to harness the power of the Time Stone to defeat Kaecilius and Dormammu. However, the battle to stop them resulted in the death of the Ancient One. With the Ancient One gone, Doctor Strange now stands to inherit her mantle as Sorcerer Supreme. But while he is now the protector of Earth from mystical and extra-dimensional threats, he is still learning to be master his new powers.

Doctor Strange may be one of the new superheroes to surface in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but he is quickly becoming a player. Now in charge of the New York Sanctum Santorum, Strange maintains a watchlist of otherworldly threats to the Earth, which includes affably evil Asgardian schemer Loki.

Spider-Man


Iron Man Spider-Man homecoming feature hero

Captain America: Civil War introduced not only Black Panther, but was the debut of one of the most popular Marvel superheroes – Spider-Man. Fresh from the deal with Sony allowing Peter Parker and his webslinging alter-ego to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the latest incarnation of the wallcrawler has firmly established himself as a fan-favorite.

Spider-Man: Homecoming will follow Peter’s adventures as he attempts to establish himself as a bonafide superhero and prove himself to Tony Stark while presumably keeping him away from flirting with Aunt May. This is no origin story, though. Peter is already well-established as Spider-Man, and soon faces his greatest threat to date: Batman Vulture. Also, high school.

The youngest hero to date in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man: Homecoming promises a departure from the standard superhero story. In much the same way as Guardians of the Galaxy introduced the MCU to vastness of the galaxy, and Doctor Strange introduced the mystical and magical, Homecoming looks to show what happens when an average person gains powers. And the responsibilities that come with it.

The Infinity Stones


Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Tying the Marvel Cinematic Universe together are the Infinity Stones – six gems of extraordinary power. In the fourteen films so far released in the MCU, five of the six stones have been discovered. The Space Stone, introduced in Captain America: The First Avenger as the Tesseract; the Mind Stone, introduced in The Avengers within Loki’s scepter and now residing in the forehead of Vision; the Reality Stone, introduced in Thor: The Dark World and known as the Aether to the Asgardians; the Power Stone, introduced in Guardians of the Galaxy and now safely held by the Nova Corps; and the Time Stone, introduced in Doctor Strange and encased in the Eye of Agamotto.

With the reveal in Doctor Strange that the Eye of Agamotto houses the Time Stone, only one Infinity Stone remains undiscovered – the Soul Stone. Viewers have kind of seen it already in Guardians of the Galaxy, and we know one thing: it is orange. But that’s pretty much the extent of our knowledge. Where it will show up, we can only speculate at this point. Considering Thanos is after all six, we can assume that it should make its debut before Avengers: Infinity War. Of all the films in Phase Three, the most likely film for the Soul Stone to debut in is probably Thor: Ragnarok.

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor learned that four of the Infinity Stones had been discovered, and knew their discovery in recent years was no coincidence. He believed that someone was playing their own game, and they were little more than pawns in his scheme. One thing is sure: once the Soul Stone comes on to the board, Thanos will make his move to secure the stones and assemble the Infinity Gauntlet.

Wrapping Up Phase 3


Avengers Infinity War War Machine Captain America Black Widow

The bulk of this article has covered the earliest events of Phase 3, mainly the films Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. However, A LOT has happened since then. Asgard was completely destroyed in Thor: Ragnarok, as was Mjolnir, Odin, Hela, the Warriors Three and a large amount of Asgard’s population. The survivors of Ragnarok were almost completely wiped out during the first few minutes of Infinity War, including Loki and Heimdall, which means Thor is currently without a family, without a planet, or without a people.

Spider-Man is currently an Avenger. While he wanted to keep a low profile in Spider-Man: Homecoming, he was “knighted” as an Avenger by Tony Stark during Infinity War. The events of Homecoming grounded Peter, they humbled him, they also taught him the valuable lesson of how to be a hero when the mask isn’t on.

The Guardians, who are currently MIA after the events of Infinity War, except Rocket, lost both Yondu and Peter’s father, Ego during Guardians Vol. 2. Star-Lord’s father turned out to be a self-obsessed galaxy killer, so Peter and the Guardians took him out. Sadly Yondu was lost in the battle. Nebula and Gamora also healed the rift between them during the film, which set up one of the most emotional moments in Infinity War: Nebula’s torture and Gamora’s surrender of the Soul Stone to Thanos.


Avengers Infinity War Mbaku Okoye

That brings us to Wakanda. During the events of Black Panther, Wakanda came under siege from Kilmonger — T’Challa’s cousin. Kilmonger succeeded in becoming the new Black Panther, but not for long. At the end of the film, T’Challa and Shuri agreed to open Wakanda’s borders to the outside world. In Infinity War, Captain America brought Vision to Wakanda so Shuri could separate him from the Mind Stone. This proved unsuccessful and Vision was killed by Thanos when the Mad Titan ripped the gem from his head.

That leaves us with the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War. Thanos used the gauntlet and wiped out half of the universe, including half of the Avengers. The only Avengers left are Black Widow, Captain America, War Machine, Iron Man and Bruce Banner. The only Wakandan leaders left are Shuri, M’Baku, and Okoye. As for the Guardians, only Rocket and Nebula are left. Even Nick Fury and Maria Hill vanished at the end of the film, which brings us to the final stand-alone movie of Phase 3: Captain Marvel. Her logo appearing at the end if the film signals that she will be a key part of Avengers: Infinity War.

The next three films in the phase are Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel, and Avengers 4. Hopefully each of these films will bring the right sense of closure to what has been the most unpredictable phase yet.

Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6 2018, Captain Marvel on March 8th 2019, and Avengers 4 on May 3rd, 2019.

An Old Marvel Villain Makes a Surprising Cameo in Avengers: Infinity War

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.

Just about every superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe makes an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. But fans certainly weren’t expecting Johann Schmidt, a.k.a. the Red Skull, from Captain America: The First Avenger in the new film. And yet there he is on the planet Vormir, where he guides Thanos to an Infinity Stone. (You can see the character in the First Avenger trailer above.)

Schmidt was the main villain in the first Captain America movie. He headed up HYDRA, a faction of the Nazi Party during World War II. He experimented on himself with a version of the super soldier serum that made Captain America tall and buff. Unfortunately for the Schmidt, the serum backfired and gave him, well, a red skull.

When the Red Skull gets his hands on the Tesseract, a powerful cube that contains an Infinity Stone, he decides to break from the Nazi Party and try to rule the world on his own. Captain America battles Red Skull, and ultimately Red Skull unwisely touches the Tesseract with his bare hands. He vanishes.

It turns out only an extremely powerful being, like Thanos, can touch Infinity Stones without dying. And even Thanos needs to carry them around in a glove to protect himself.

Infinity War reveals that the Red Skull was teleported to Vormir, where the Soul Stone is kept. The former villain explains to Thanos and Gamora that he’s been doomed to a purgatory where he can guid those who seek the Soul Stone but never attain it himself. Once Thanos claims the stone, Red Skull disappears.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Review: Marvel Delivers On Every Promise

Spoiler-free: This Avengers: Infinity War review will not contain specific plot spoilers, but it will cover the film’s themes, characters, and expectations. 

For the last 10 years, Marvel has been building to this one storyline: Thanos’ quest for the Infinity Gems. While Thanos‘ presence has been felt in many films, including the first Avengers, this is truly his grand entrance into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

As for Earth’s and the Galaxy’s Mightiest Heroes, everyone has a role to play. Whether they’re holding back Ebony Maw, Proxima Midnight, or Thanos himself, each Guardian, each Avenger, and each hero in this film has something powerful to do. As for who lives and who dies, while we won’t be covering that here, we can say this: the stakes are real and certain characters will not be coming back.

Grab your tissues, your shields, and your best pop culture references and let’s dive into this non-spoiler review for Avengers: Infinity War.

The Emotional Moments Hit Home


Avengers Infinity War Scarlet Witch Vision

If Marvel has proved anything in the last ten years, it’s that each of their characters can hold their own in stand alone films. This was how the Marvel Universe was built. Tony Stark led the charge by saying “I am Iron Man” at the end of Iron Man. But, as Nick Fury said, Tony Stark and all the other characters in this film have “become part of a larger universe.”

That universe has become tightly intertwined through the relationships these characters have built over the last 10 years. Tony and Pepper Potts, Bucky and Captain America, Thor and Loki, Rocket and Groot, Tony and Bruce Banner, Black Widow and Falcon, Gamora and Star-Lord, Tony and Peter Parker, Black Panther and Shuri.

These relationships have meaning and in Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos will tear them apart. It would be easy to say, “bring tissues because X dies…” but that’s not quite the case here. Bring the tissues because characters that love each other, whether it’s the “unspoken” love between Star-Lord and Gamora or the love that has been blossoming between Wanda and Vision, this love is tested and tested HARD.

Marvel’s Funniest Film to Date


Avengers Infinity War Doctor Strange Tony Stark Bruce Banner Wong

In the midst of this testing, Marvel never fails to land a good joke. The audience in the theater was howling during certain scenes, howling as loud as audiences might have done the first time Star-Lord called Kevin Bacon a hero in the first Guardians of the Galaxy.

Right away the film kicks in the humor. One minute you could be crying and the next you could be laughing. That’s how well Marvel has figured out their storytelling. Peter Parker delivers a lot of these laughs, especially with his never ending movie and pop culture references. Doctor Strange delivers a lot of dry humor, especially when he meets Tony Stark for the first time.  And, as always, the Guardians deliver huge laughs. Especially Rocket, who has some fantastic moments with Thor.

What’s important about this levity is that it’s needed. Thanos is not called the “mad Titan” for nothing. He is hellbent on getting the gems and his “children”, Proxima Midnight, Corvus Glaive, Ebony Maw and Cull Obsidian, are RUTHLESS. In fact, their fight sequences with the Avengers are some of the best Marvel has even done.

The Film Delivers Incredible Spectacle


Avengers Infinity War Spider-Man Iron Spider

When looking at a film like this, it’s hard not to think of other superhero films that have come before. While it would be easy to compare this to Justice League or even the first Avengers, nothing even comes close to Infinity War. The only film that has ever achieved this combination of storytelling, set pieces, stunts, action, and battles is Return of the King.

Return of the King, while only the third film in the Lord of the Rings franchise (Infinity War is 19th, if we’re counting), gave audiences the biggest on screen battle they have ever seen. It also divided its key cast, sending Frodo into Mordor, Aragorn into the Dead City, Gandalf to the White Tower of Gondor and Merry and Pippin to both sides of the great battle.

In Infinity War, multiple storylines take place at once, all over the galaxy. Each new planet the film visits is breathtaking and the final battle in Wakanda is definitely on the scale of the final battle in Return of the King. In terms of visual effects, the film fires on all pistons. Planets, aliens, battles, Tony’s new Iron Man suit, the Iron Spider suit Peter wears, Doctor Strange and Wong‘s mystical powers, even the gems themselves look gorgeous and incredibly detailed. Every scene, every effect, every choice pays off.

Is Avengers: Infinity War Good?


Avengers Infinity War Thanos

Yes. It’s really good. Good is actually an understatement considering everything that Marvel accomplished in this film. And here’s the crazy thing, Infinity War is only PART ONE of a two-part story. That’s right, the end of Infinity War is the BIGGEST CLIFFHANGER in cinematic history. While the film does come to a very specific ending, it sets up the entire plot of Avengers 4.

Don’t Miss the Cameos



There are some great cameos in this film! While Stan Lee is always a friendly face to see on film, another character from the Marvel Universe does make his or her return. No spoilers, but the audience made such an audible gasp when this person came on screen it was amazing. Also, the film does answer three of the biggest questions everyone is asking:

“Where is the Soul Gem?”

“Where is Hawkeye?”

“Is there a post-credit scene?”

You will find out all of these answers and more when the film opens later this week! As for the post-credit scene, a true Marvel fan always stays until the end credits.

Avengers: Infinity War opens worldwide on April 27, 2018.

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Review: Not All Your Marvel Superhero Faves Make It Out Alive

Chuck Zlotnick/Marvel Studios

I’m not going to tell you who dies in Avengers: Infinity War.

Nonetheless, death hangs like a shroud over the latest—and, to date, largest—entry in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe, which assembles just about every previously introduced series character for all-out CGI war against Thanos, a purple-faced behemoth (embodied by Josh Brolin via motion-capture technology) with arrogant boasts and apocalyptic rationalizations dripping off his tongue. Thanos has travelled to Earth (and the far reaches beyond) in search of the Infinity Stones, those six magical cosmic objects that provide all sorts of limitless powers, and which he plans to use (in a shiny gold glove known as the Infinity Gauntlet) to obliterate half of the world’s creatures in his ongoing quest to bring balance to the universe.

It’s a plan for combatting overpopulation that only a super-lunatic could conceive.

5 Marvel Team-Ups We Want to See in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Avengers: Infinity War has been a massive undertaking for Marvel. From sorting through characters, to picking up plot lines that have stretched between 18 films, Avengers: Infinity War is easily the most ambitious thing Marvel has ever done.

10 years of storytelling are about to come to a head in the film and over 40 characters will be colliding. Whether these characters will be spending only minutes together or entire scenes, FANDOM is excited to see some epic team-ups.

What will Rocket say when he meets Captain America for the first time? Will Groot and Hulk just have amazing non-verbal communication? And what about Iron Man and Star-Lord? Will their egos even be able to fit in the same room together? Whoever ends up together in this film, here are five team-ups we HAVE to see:

The Magicians



The “age of miracles” has truly come, just as Baron von Strucker prophesied in Age of Ultron. With this age of miracles comes Marvel’s magicians, magic wielders like Doctor Strange, Wong, and Scarlet Witch.

Scarlet Witch was the only magic user in the Avengers, and in Infinity War she’ll finally be joined by Strange and Wong. What can she teach them? What can they teach her? Wanda has been alone since the death of her brother, Quicksilver, and we’re very excited to see her find a new family with Strange and Wong.

The Soldiers



Steve, Bucky, and Falcon got to team-up a bit during the events of Captain America: Civil War. There was that iconic shot of the three of them in a tiny VW bug, road-tripping to meet Sharon Carter. Falcon and Bucky even gave Cap the “nod” when Steve and Sharon kissed.

Now that Bucky is all healed up mentally and physically, we’re hoping to see a road trip reunion. Bucky, Cap, and Falcon are also cut out of the same cloth. They are soldiers first, above everything else. They know what it’s like to go to war, more so than most. Hopefully they get some fun scenes together — who knows, perhaps Bucky or Falcon will pick up Cap’s shield at the end of all this.

The Badass Ladies



Gamora, Black Widow and Okoye are the most powerful women in the Marvel Universe. These women have defended their respective teams over many long years. Gamora has traversed the galaxy with the Guardians, Romanoff has supported S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers through many battles and Okoye has defended Wakanda from threats without and within.

These three ladies NEED a scene together. Whether they share a laugh over how long they have been solo lady soldiers or they share a powerful team-up, seeing them together would be powerful. Especially since they all have such different strengths.

The Next Generation



Shuri and Peter Parker are the smartest people in the MCU, outside of Tony Stark. While Peter is holding his own at his technical school in New York City, Shuri is the girl genius of Wakanda. Not only is Shuri responsible for all the cool tech in Wakanda, but she also made Black Panther’s amazing suit.

Peter and Shuri are also both young and full of hope. While Peter experienced the bitter taste of loss last year during the events of Spider-Man: Homecoming he still remains optimistic about fighting crime and taking on bad guys. Shuri shares this optimism and has a desire to help other young people, especially based on the post-credit scene in Black Panther.

Together they bring two genius-level intellects and their combined powers of hope. Seeing them work together and geek out over new tech would be so fun to see in Infinity War.

The Psychotic Siblings



Loki and Nebula are definitely the wild cards of Infinity War. Both of these characters have axes to grind with Thanos. Loki was under Thanos’s control leading up to the Battle of New York in Avengers and Nebula was tortured by Thanos most of her life. Both of these characters also have a lot in common. They both grew up in the shadows of greater siblings. Loki lived in Thor’s shadow for most of his life, and Nebula grew up in Gamora’s shadow.

Both of these characters are also powerful warriors. Where Nebula is skilled in combat, Loki is skilled in magic and mischief. They are both extremely driven and self-serving. Can you imagine if they crossed paths in the film or if their motivations aligned, even for a second? I would not want to be Thanos or the Black Order with Loki and Nebula on my tail.

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on April 27, 2018.

6 Marvel Villains That Deserve Their Own Movie

Marvel villains are a diverse and eclectic bunch. From the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the X-Men films to the myriad versions in the comics, Marvel villains make up some of the most compelling characters in the Marvel universe. With Venom getting his own headlining feature, we decided to pull together six Marvel villains that we think should also get a chance at top billing.

Doctor Doom


doctor doom marvel villains feature

The Latverian dictator Victor von Doom is a fascinating figure but he’s been relegated to typical big bad status during his few cinematic appearances. A film that focused on his status as veritable king of a foreign land could be a very different take on the protagonist formula. In fact, Legion and Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley is currently working on a potential Doctor Doom film. Whether it will see the light of day is debatable, but we’re hoping he finds a way to approach such a rich and multifaceted villain. If they can’t seem to nail down a good Fantastic Four movie, at least they could give such a legendary bad guy his due.

The Hood


the hood marvel villains

We’ve seen the origin story of so many young superheroes in film. Why haven’t we explored how a young supervillain gets their start? That’s the idea behind the Hood a.k.a. Parker Collins. He’s a young punk who dreams of being a super-powered crook. After a tip, he discovers a magical hood and boots that give him various magical powers. The idea of taking the idealistic kid who gets the ability to be a superhero and inverting it to explore what kind of character wants to be a supervillain is a great twist. Plus, the Hood is a character that is unfamiliar to general audiences, so a filmmaker could play with his story enough to where they could make the definitive version of the character.

Vulcan


vulcan marvel villains

Vulcan is the kind of cosmic villain that’s interesting enough to helm his own story. He’s actually the brother of Cyclops, but Professor X removed any memories of Vulcan after he was thought to be killed on a dangerous mission. Vulcan seeks revenge but eventually decides to head for the stars to claim what he believes to be his birthright: the Shi’ar empire. It’s a grand space opera story but with a vengeful mutant at the center instead of a wide-eyed hero. Following the story of a conqueror mutant could tap into some Game of Thrones type fantasy and we all know how popular that kind of storytelling is!

Emma Frost


emma frost marvel villains 2

Though Emma Frost has made a few appearances in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: First Class, she’s the kind of complex villain (and sometimes hero/ally) that is ripe for examination as a lead character. She began as one of the members of the Hellfire Club, a secret society that uses their wealth and influence to shape world events. Although she eventually became a friend to the X-Men, her allegiance has always been to herself. Seeing a strong female character as the lead of a comic book film is always great, but putting someone as enigmatic and morally grey as Emma Frost in the lead would welcome some complicated character dissection.

Bullseye


bullseye marvel villains

The vicious assassin Bullseye has been portrayed as an enemy of both Daredevil and the Punisher. But, he’s a truly dark and despicable character that warrants further examination. Imagine a movie like Deadpool where the lead character is a gun-for-hire, but if the comedy was played much darker and even crossed the line in truly shocking ways. That’s what a Bullseye movie could be. His ability to turn anything into a throwing weapon is also inherently cinematic, even if the 2003 film didn’t quite know the best way to capture that. For fans who want a truly dark Marvel film, Bullseye would be a perfect candidate to helm such a movie.

J. Jonah Jameson


j jonah jameson marvel villains

Before the world was inundated with loudmouth pundits and cries of fake news, there was J. Jonah Jameson. The editor of the Daily Bugle has been one of Spider-Man‘s longest-running foes. So, why not give him the spotlight? You could make a delirious comedy about Jameson going out and trying to land the big story that will finally sink that wall-crawling menace once and for all.

Along the way, he just happens to fall into some bigger superhero shenanigans. Or maybe a more traditional Spider-Man movie is happening on the edges of this story about a blowhard who manipulates facts and misconstrues everything going on around him. It’d be a goofy idea to take a minor character and see a major story play out from their perspective. Something akin to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead but through the lens of the Marvel universe.

Jessica Jones Season 2 Is Netflix’s Next Marvel Binge. Here’s What to Expect

Marvel’s best whiskey-swigging, gritty heroine Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) is back and still fighting demons from her past. The last time we saw Jessica Jones in season 1 of the Netflix series about the superhero, she had finally vanquished Kilgrave (David Tennant) and started answering calls from people around New York needing her help as private investigator. She later appeared in Marvel’s The Defenders, joining streetwise heroes Luke Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist to take down their enemies in the Netflix series.

A look at Netflix’s trailer for season 2 of Jessica Jones finds the angry superhero detective examining the details surrounding her parents’ death and the mystery of the experiments that gave her extraordinary powers. It also appears her tormenter Kilgrave will return to the series — whether he comes back to life or is appears in Jessica’s flashbacks remains to be seen.

Netflix

Season 2 of Jessica Jones hits Netflix on March 8. Here’s what’s ahead for the hero.

Jessica Jones season 2 trailer

The trailer for the second season of Jessica Jones reveals little about the plot of our main hero’s new adventures. She’s still drinking a lot. And while she is trying to piece her life back together, Jessica can’t seem to shake the “super vigilante shit” constantly being thrown at her, as the the events of season 1 and The Defenders make her known throughout New York for her powers. The circumstances of her family’s death in a car accident and the murky way she received her powers further haunt Jessica.

“I have 17 years of questions, and they are deep,” she says in the trailer.

Jessica Jones season 2 cast

Netflix

As she tries to crack the case of her own origin story, other figures from her past and current life appear in Jessica Jones season 2. Her best friend Trish Walker appears to be on her way to becoming Marvel hero Hellcat, a sidekick to Jessica and superhero in her own right. Known as Patsy Walker in the comics, Jessica Jones‘s Trish came to her friend’s aid more than once in season 1. This time around, it looks like Trish may get a little more to do as she jumps to Jessica’s defense — whether the angsty detective likes it or not.

“Jessica might not want a sidekick, but she needs one,” she says in the trailer.

Other returning figures include David Tennant as Kilgrave, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse and Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth. It’s unclear whether Mike Colter will return to reprise his role as Luke Cage.

New cast members will include Janet McTeer (Me Before You, Damages) in an unrevealed role and J.R. Ramirez (Power, Arrow) as Oscar, a single father who is the new superintendent at Jessica’s building.

Jessica Jones season 2 villain

Jessica’s antagonists are still everywhere in season 2 of Jessica Jones. One of her oldest enemies, Kilgrave, or The Purple Man — who despite dying at the end of the first season — still appears to live on in some form or another in the new season (Tennant was confirmed to return to the series). The trailer does not show the circumstances of Kilgrave’s return, but reveals a pair of hands clapping three times while Jessica has a purple light shone on her, hinting that she hasn’t fully shaken one of her biggest enemies.

Other enemies abound — Jessica is looking for the shadowy figures who performed experiments on her as a child and a mysterious man wants to take over her detective agency. The trailer further warns of a killer beyond Jessica’s control.

Where Jessica Jones season 2 fits in the Marvel-Netflix timeline

Jessica Jones season 2 comes after the events of the Battle of New York shown in the 2012 theatrical release The Avengers, which the first season acknowledged and does again in the new series when a child asks Jessica if she knows Captain America. New Yorkers are also aware that she teamed up with heroes Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in The Defenders, hence the ramping up of higher vigilante demands. New seasons of Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are also coming to Netflix, though specific premiere dates have not been announced yet.

What the Marvel roster will look like once those films roll out is an uncertainty.

The Marvel Universe Made Me the Man I Am Today

Television introduced me to the superhero genre, but it was the cover of Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #8 that really ignited my passion for the Marvel Universe. The image of Spider-Man in his new black-and-white costume and an all-star cast of heroes waging war against an infamous cast of villains convinced me to read my first Marvel superhero comic book. It was from there that I dove head-first into a love of all things Marvel. These Marvel comics helped me see the type of person I wanted to become and inspired me to become a positive influence in the lives of others.

A DC Beginning

As a kid, I loved waking up early on Saturday mornings to watch superhero cartoons. I remember waiting for those “kiddie shows” to end so that I could watch Super Friends.


Super-Friends

Wearing Underoos emblazoned with my favorite hero’s insignia, I sat watching in awe as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and others saved the day. The mornings’ adventures continued with Spider-Man and his Amazing Friendsbut once the larger-than-life presence of the Super Friends went off the air, Spidey felt more like a consolation prize.

Life-Changing Discovery

In time, I developed an interest in the G.I. Joe franchise. Hasbro did a brilliant job of marketing its G.I. Joe: Real American Hero toys in commercials, the weekday afternoon cartoon, and the Marvel comic book series. I raced home from school each day to watch the newest episode of G.I. Joe. Occasionally I walked up to my neighborhood discount store with rolls of pennies in hand to buy the latest release in the toy line.


secret-wars

When I was too old to buy the toys (or too embarrassed for anyone to know I bought them), I turned to Marvel’s G.I. Joe comic books. Once a month, I went to the comic book store with my cousin to buy the latest G.I. Joe book while he bought other Marvel titles. I seldom paid attention to the books he chose, but that night Spider-Man seemed to jump off the cover and invite me to pick up the book. I would never forget it.

Stories of Triumph

That night I read Secret Wars #8 and soon continued through the back issues of the series. I was hooked. Secret Wars renewed my interest in familiar characters and introduced me to superheroes like the X-Men that I would follow for years to come. I lost myself in the storylines and forgot about everyday problems, spellbound as the heroes overcame challenges and made a difference in the world.


X-Men Animated Series

Even as I got older my interest in the Marvel Universe did not wane. I stopped regularly buying comic books, but I sometimes purchased graphic novels to keep up with the major storylines. I was in college when the X-Men and Spider-Man animated series premiered, but I woke up early every Saturday morning and tuned in – this time minus the Underoos.

Rooted in the Real World

Perhaps what I love most about Marvel comics is how grounded in reality these stories feel to me. Superheroes with unimaginable powers overcome challenges and help others around them. The selflessness that these characters exhibited inspired me to become more than the shy, nerdy kid in the corner who rarely engaged in conversation. Instead, I got involved in the community and tried to set a positive example for others.

I was so ecstatic to see the development of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as it allows me now I can pass down those great stories to my children. I hope that they will one day learn the lessons that Marvel comics and television series taught me. The Marvel Universe continues to inspire me, and it all started with Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars #8.

Heys Marvel Captain America Kids Luggage

Heys Marvel Captain America Kids Luggage


Designed especially for kids. This luggage featuring Marvel superheroes was created by Heys with the unique characteristics of children in mind. Incorporating several design features that benefit children, these cases are the perfect travel companion. These beautiful cases have Marvel characters specially printed onto their hardshell surfaces. There are a variety of unique character prints in this collection; these prints include popular Marvel characters such as Iron Man, Captain America, Flash, Thor, Spiderman and many more. In creating a ‘High-end’ series for Marvel, our designers incorporated several children-specific features. One of these is the internal ‘reversed-curved’ handle system that curves the handle inwards & upwards closer to the child, making it much more comfortable for the child – at a low height – to hold and navigate the case. The Patent Protected design of this case also allows the wheels to ‘protrude’ out. This protrusion keeps the case elevated, so that even when being rolled at a very low height off the floor, the wheels will be the only point of contact and the case will continue to roll with ease. The cases weigh in at a mere 3.7 lbs, and feature our inline skate wheels that make their rolling even smoother, so any child can easily wheel these fun cases around. They also have a zipper closure system, that when opened reveals a beautifully lined interior as well as a zippered divider for internal organization. Patent Protected
