Good evening/morning/afternoon/night to you all,
(Think I covered my bases there)
Wherever you are in the world, it's hard not to tell that Christmas is just around the corner. All the shops here in Australia already have Santa photos on the go and the Carols playing over the PAs so I was wondering if anyone had any Christmassy related Marvel artwork in the pipelines? If so, how would you feel about a Holiday Seasons folder in the group?
(I know that Thanksgiving is coming up for our American group members as well, so not only would it be Christmas but Thanksgiving related, Hanukkah relatted etc etc.)
Let me know what you guys are thinking.
Now, regarding some movie news;
As most people have heard Heimdall and Loki are confirmed to have a scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
The seemingly forgotten (by me) project of Ant-Man has gained Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter, has a release of July 2015.
For those who are unaware, Black Panther has been cast to be played by Chadwick Boseman. It is also speculated at this point that Black Panther will be replacing Spider-Man in the Civil War timeline due to Spider-Man being owned by Sony.
At the time of writing it is uncertain if we will see the union of T'Challa and Storm as King and Queen of Wakanda as X-Men is owned by Fox. It is widely known that one poster for Avengers: AoU shows Cap's shield shattered, and it is important to know that the person responsible for reassembling the shield is T'Challa, making his inclusion (FINALLY!!!) in the Universe very exciting for all Black Panther fans.
Unfortunately, it is still only rumored that Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing Doctor Stephen Strange, but it's no secret that he is keen to play the character and Marvel/Disney are in negotiations with the talented actor.
Civil War timeline is set to begin in Avengers: AoU, and mark the start of Marvel's "Phase Three" which could very well see an Avengers/Guardians of the Galaxy crossover happen regarding the Infinity Stones.
All films listed as part of Marvel's Phase Three are;
Avengers: Age of Ultron, May 1st, 2015
Ant-Man, July 17th, 2015
Captain America: Civil War, May 6th, 2016
Doctor Strange, July 8th, 2016
Thor: Ragnarök, May 5th, 2017
Guardians of the Galaxy: War of Kings, July 28th, 2017
Black Panther, November 3rd, 2017
Avengers: Infinity Wars, July 6, 2018 (Assuming this is part 1 of 2 as previously has been said to be a 2 part film)
World War Hulk, November 2nd, 2018
Inhumans, May 3rd, 2019
Anyway guys, I hope that there has at least been some new news come from this blog, but most of it is well known at this point anyway.
