Our Thoughts On The 9 Marvel Movie Frenzy
Well, first of all we guess you have not missed this news? Marvel announced 9(!) upcoming new movies until 2019(!).
As fun and exciting it might be. It leaves us wondering. Why announce movies all through 2019? A lot can happen on the way there. It seems a bit strange. And why not keep some secrets to reveal for later?
And are we really as excited about all this releases when we think of it?
No, not really. Sure, we are curious to see what the upcoming Avengers are gonna show as the first one was pretty great compared to many other Marvel movies. And no doubt the Number 1 movie we look forward too in our mind is Guardians Of The Galaxy 2. One of the (if not THE) best Marvel movies evah! And in our mind we think the Doctor Strange Movie is reeeeaallly exciting. Especially when we heard that the role goes to Benedict Cumberbatch (if it´s comfirmed yet?). And yeah, OK, The last Captain America movie was surprisingly good.
But now after these movies we are getting a bit more sceptic. Thor…hmm. It got room for improvement. But the theme of Ragnarök sounds intriguing. Let´s hope it will be good. So that is kinda of a middle movie. Now to the ones on the bottom. Black Panther and Inhumans.
Ok, it´s cool and good to get some diversity in these movies. It´s very much needed. But as a comic figure Black Panther was not the coolest one of the bunch and neither very intresting. (Maybe it´s just us though?) In any case we feel a strong meh, about this one. And finally there´s InHumans…..YAaaaaaawwnnnnnn. How utter boring when they could do sooo many other cool stories/characters they could do? Well, we might be all wrong and this might, just might, turn out great but we will save our excitement until then.

“Civil War” is a 2006–2007 Marvel Comics crossover storyline built around a self-titled seven-issue limited series written by Mark Millar and penciled by Steve McNiven, which ran through various other titles published by Marvel at the time. The storyline builds upon the events that developed in previous Marvel crossovers, particularly “Avengers Disassembled“, “House of M“, “Decimation“, and “Silent War“. The tagline for the series is “Whose Side Are You On?”
The plot of the series follows a framework storyline in which the U.S. government passes a Superhero Registration Act ostensibly designed to have superpowered characters act under official regulation, somewhat akin to police officers. However, those opposed to the act, led by Captain America, find themselves in conflict with those in support of the act, led by Iron Man, with Spider-Mancaught in the middle. The events of the series touch upon themes of liberty, moral responsibility, and civil order, with good-intentioned superhero characters finding themselves upon different sides. The series received polarizing reviews but was a commercial success, spawning many media adaptations.
The Secret Avengers and their allies reached Riker’s Island penitentiary. Betrayed by Tigra, they were met by Iron Man and the pro-registration forces, and a number of supervillains who were being controlled by nanites. Hulkling used his shape-shifting ability to assume the role of Henry Pym and release the incarcerated heroes, leading to an all-out battle between the two sides.
During the fight Cloak teleported the battle to the centre of New York City, where the pro-registration forces were joined by the fixed Thor clone and Captain Marvel, and Namor led an army of Atlanteans to assist the Secret Avengers. Captain America targeted Iron Man, whose armor had been compromised by the Vision II. As Captain America was about to deliver a finishing blow, several non-superpowered emergency service personnel held him back. Wishing to avert further property damage and bloodshed, Captain America surrendered.
Two weeks later, the Fifty State Initiative was launched and the Mighty Avengers assembled as a team. Tony Stark was appointed Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Maria Hill was demoted to deputy status. Some heroes moved to Canada, while some stayed underground including the New Avengers. Many of the Secret Avengers were given amnesty by the government, while Captain America was placed in jail. Captain America was later apparently shot to death by Crossbones and Sharon Carter (the latter hypnotised by Dr. Faustus) outside the courthouse, marking the end of the Civil War.
The Infinity War is a six-issue comic book limited series published by Marvel Comics in 1992. The series was written by Jim Starlinand penciled by Ron Lim, Ian Laughlin, Al Milgrom, Jack Morelli and Christie Scheele.
When hero Adam Warlock takes possession of the artifact known as the Infinity Gauntlet, he expels the good and evil aspects of his being to become a totally logical being, who can therefore use the Gauntlet wisely. This act recreates his “evil” persona and old foe the Magus, who desires universal conquest and revenge against Warlock and the Titan Thanos. (Meanwhile, the effectively emotionless Adam is brought before a “jury” of the cosmic powers and voluntarily surrenders his godhood once he is found to be “guilty” of being unworthy.) The Magus collects five cosmic containment units (another name for the Cosmic Cubes), and with the power gained incapacitates the cosmic entity Eternity; creates an interdimensional realm and an army of doppelgängers – evil “mirror” images of Earth’s superheroes.
After investigating the energy of the containment units, Thanos discovers the Magus and retreats to warn Warlock. Galactus and several of Earth’s heroes also investigate and then attempt to revive Eternity, as the entity will be required to petition the Living Tribunal, who has decreed that the Infinity Gems can no longer be used in unison in the Earth-616universe. The rationale is that if the Gauntlet can be reactivated, then the Magus can be removed from existence. The Magus sends the doppelgängers to Earth to distract the heroes, and the evil version of Mister Fantastic detonates a gamma bomb when the heroes assemble at Four Freedoms Plaza, however, the Invisible Woman contains the blast while Thunder God Thor directs the radiation into space, and a surprise attack by the Magus and the doppelgänger of Thanos has the heroes believing the two characters are now allied.
The story climaxes at the Magus’ base: a group of heroes free those who were replaced by doppelgängers; cosmic adventurer Quasar arrives with the Ultimate Nullifier (with Thanos goading Quasar to use it against the Magus knowing that Quasar would also be destroyed) and villains Kang the Conqueror and Doctor Doom appear, hoping to harness the source of the powerful energies detected.
Warlock and the still inactive Gauntlet are captured by the Magus, and both attacked by Doom and Kang. Warlock is defeated and the Magus is severely weakened in the battle and attempts to use the containment units but discovers they have been stolen. Doom betrays and stops Kang, and then demands the Gauntlet from the Magus. Eternity, however, has just been revived and has requested the Gauntlet be reactivated, which the Living Tribunal agrees to. An apparently omnipotent Magus easily defeats Doom and dissolves Quasar, who arrives with the Ultimate Nullifier. Thanos defeats his doppelgänger and distracts the Magus, allowing Warlock to grapple with the villain for the Gauntlet. Warlock releases from the Gauntlet a being that is a composite of the entity Eternity and his twin, Infinity. The being incapacitates the Magus, allowing Warlock to absorb the character into the Soul Gem. The experience places Warlock in a coma.
Thanos reveals to the assembled heroes that the Magus was tricked and never gained omnipotence as the Reality Gem on the Gauntlet—which Thanos is revealed to be the secret guardian of—was a convincing fake. The heroes return to Earth and the final page of the last issue reveals that the containment units have been stolen by Warlock’s “good” persona, the Goddess. In addition to these developments, Eternity—who is apparently ‘deputized’ by the Living Tribunal to make such a decree—thereafter declares that the Gems on the Gauntlet will never be able to be used again as a single unit, no matter what future crisis befalls the universe.
