Captain America: Civil War Early Screening
So with over a month to go before Captain America: Civil War drops on May 6th, Marvel has screened the entire film for critics an entire month early! The reactions so far are extremely confident and Marvel has absolutely nothing to worry about – this movie simply rocks!!!! Following the increasing collateral damage from the past few films, the Avengers are now being pressed by the entire world to submit to some form of monitoring. Some are for it, some against it, and ultimately this breaks into an all out war! All this with the introduction of the character Black Panther and, for the first time, the official Marvel version of Spider-Man! They nailed it.
New Suicide Squad Trailer
The third action-packed trailer dropped for Suicide Squad setting up more story and featuring more action cuts of Batman in action; all set to the song “Ballroom Blitz.” David Ayers has recently made some statements that the pickups going on right now are not reshoots to make the film funnier, but additional segments made to add in some extra bits Ayer wanted to include, as they were intended. This newest trailer, indeed, gives us more humor, more Batman, more Joker, more everything! And I love everything I’ve seen so far.
Will The Inhumans Movie Be Cancelled?
Kevin Feige is unsure when Marvel’s Inhumans movie will be moving forward – this was the conversation he had recently at the press days fro Civil War. He went into the details basically saying it has been pushed back to make room for Spider-Man and Ant-Man and the Wasp. What are some other possible Phase 4 films that could be coming after 2019?

Flashback – Iron Man 3 (2013)
Here comes Iron Man 3 from writer/director Shane Black. Adapting the Warren Ellis “Extremis” storyline, and mixing that with elements of many different comics, this third entry introduces the feared terrorist arms dealer called The Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley. Tony and Pepper have been going through relationship issues as Guy Pierce enters the picture as a technological competitor.
Spotlight: The Inhumans
This week’s spotlight shines on the Marvel Characters called the Inhumans. Introduced in the Fantastic Four comics from the 60s, created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, they are a hidden race of mutated humans, transformed by the Krees ancient alien Terrigen Mists. They remain in hiding, led by Black Bolt, who stays silent because his voice would lay waste to entire cities. Medusa, Triton, Karnak, are all the characters in the story with strange abilities. These characters have been slowly introduced on the TV series Agents of Shield, and are tentatively announced to have a feature film for Marvel’s Phase 4. Will the Inhumans make a better television series or feature film?
