With all this recent chatter about introducing more female superheroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many comic book movie fans have found themselves repeating one name: Katee Sackhoff. The actress has a large sci-fi fanhood following thanks to her time playing Starbuck on the reimagined version of Battlestar Galactica, and many of those same people want to see her take on more big genre pictures - making Marvel a natural fit.
Guardians of the Galaxy is gaining major praise, being called by some the greatest science-fiction movie since Star Wars. And yet it almost didn't happen.
Admittedly, it is a surprise that more titles weren't announced – specifically the July 2016 date, which would have to be for a film soon to enter the pre-production phase – though believing Marvel would give up their whole plan is foolish.
If they mostly follow this storyline (which involves Ultron consistently generating versions of himself to battle the heroes), then the role Pym played will fall to Tony Stark. Which explains why Stark is the one who hasn't been mind-wiped or whatever in the footage.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige held serve over the Hall H panel, introducing press time with such massive celebs as Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll for the Ant-Man portion of the panel.
The still leaves seven Untitled Projects on Marvel’s cinematic slate, and the studio is in no rush to fill them. There was no mention of Doctor Strange dates or casting tonight. No confirmation on a third Avengers movie. Just more Guardians of the Galaxy news.
You'd think the God of Thunder could summon up some lightning to mess with Ultron, but that's basically my understanding of movie technology speaking: everyone knows a lightning strike makes even the most innocuous machine go haywire.
Paul Bettany and The Vision should be a major component of the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward, particularly as we continue to learn his connections to Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and the murderous Ultron (James Spader).
Marvel did not confirm on the story. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has not officially been announced, and it was believed that the studio was waiting to see how the initial film did at the box office before revealing a sequel.
Just as Benedict Cumberbatch presumably pulled himself out of the running for the title role in Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange, in enters a new possible contender for the role. A man who's more than familiar with the ways of the strange.
With Avengers: Age of Ultron, the creator of such female-empowering properties as Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Firefly has revealed he has four female leads lined up for his next Marvel outing. Do the math. This could mean an exciting new addition to the Marvel movie universe. Perhaps Ms. Marvel herself?
If the current Marvel movies attempted Thunderbolts, it would probably just be a villain team-up a la Avengers. Which means you'd probably have Tom Hiddleston's Loki, Hugo Weaving's Red Skull, maybe robo-Arnim Zola, Samuel Stern from The Incredible Hulk (last seen mutating into The Leader), and maybe Sam Rockwell's Justin Hammer from Iron Man 2.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson, however, comes as part of a package deal with Elizabeth Olsen. Instead of Magneto being their father, they are now struggling orphans who have presumably political anger towards the Avengers and the American imperialism they represent.
Do you like free stuff? Are you excited for Guardians Of The Galaxy? Then you're going to want to take a look at what we've found.
Feige teased the possibility that Iron Man might meet the real Mandarin, and that Captain America may not have seen the last of Red Skull.
