So we got Bennidict Cumberbatch for Dr Strange, and Boseman for T'challa. Any idea who is doing Carol danvers or the inhumans?

No, not yet, but that is why I love Marvel so much. Over these past years it has become my favorite franchise of all! Inhumans will mark the 10th anniverary for the MCU since Iron Man (2008) so I hope they will celebrate it somehow, who would have thought that it will first get so successfull and second still so connected even if most of the movies can be watched on its own. I hope the netflix series like Daredevil and ABCs Agent Carters will be successfull as well, it would be a shame if the TV Series are getting axed before their time. But, bring it on Phase Three! :)

Take a look at this: http://wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net/80450F/comicsalliance.com/files/2014/10/CA_Supermovies_10-28-2014-21.jpg

With this time table. Dr. Strange will take place during Season 4 of Agent's of SHIELD. Black Panther during Season 5. And Just at the end of Season 6, The third Avengers movie.

The fourth Avengers movie occurs after season 7, so Marvel's Agents of SHIELD (if it is lucky enough) needs to go to season 8 just so we see the impact of that fourth Avenger's movie.

Just to realize that, boggles my mind!

As per Ryan Penagos on Twitter (https://twitter.com/AgentM/status/527169870551871488), Cumberbatch is NOT confirmed. Though he didn't flat out deny it either, leaving open the possibility that they could confirm if they successfully sign BC. Still hoping they get someone else instead.

A better tie in here...... as far as we know from Agents of SHIELD, a lot of the alien stuff seems to be in relation to the Kree is T.A.H.I.T.I is anything to go by.... Perhaps the first time we will get to see Carol Danvers will be in SHIELD. And I already suspect that they will have to deal with the Inhumans in some form or another.

But that is the thing, with these movies planned out as they are. There is no rush for the TV series to go through that arc. And while yes they are addressing the impacts of it, they are still at the mercy of the biggest story arc that The Winter Soldier movie dropped on them. That will feed I bet a huge chunk of their stories for the rest fo the series.

Also, if Hydra is going to be beaten, permanently. I think it will happen on the TV show. Sure some of what we saw at the end of The Winter Soldier will come back in some form in the movies. But I do not see a single movie that screams "Tackles Hydra". Age of Ultron is going to be more on the impact that the crazed robot has, but also it will have Hydra's experiments running around (See Scarlet Witch and QuickSilver).

But there just cannot be any way that Age of Ultron wraps up Agent's of SHIELD's biggest foe after just one season of fighting them.

If anything, I suspect we're have episodes of Agent's of SHIELD that take place during and intersecting with some of the later movies. I mean, we are not even going to see Carol powered up until sometime in 2018. That's 4 years and 4-5 seasons away!

It would be stellar (pun intended) if they had the actress for Carol Danvers appear as a regular the season before her film debut.

Oh my gosh, I've stopped talking about season 2 and I'm talking about season 4! Damn, Marvel. :D

^ These comments are all assuming that the show survives past this season. That was by no means guaranteed last year--a lot of people were surprised it got a second year, the way its viewer numbers plummeted in the first season. And the numbers this year haven't been any better.

Now, that doom and gloom out of the way....

SQUEEEEEEE! What a whopper of an announcement!! Civil War! Strange! More Thor and more Guardians! More new main characters!! The Infinity Gauntlet!! And the long-rumoured Inhumans movie!!!! Holy crap Marvel, way to completely destroy any buzz from DC's recent film universe :lol:

Hence why I said "if it's lucky enough" in my first post (http://forum.gateworld.net/threads/89558-MCU-Phase-Three-is-HERE!?p=14266634&viewfull=1#post14266634)

The show is doing better now, but it's not going to be must-see-tv for everyone.

EDIT:
I think the show has a lot going for it now. The Winter Soldier movie gave it a lot of momentum that is still driving most of the plots.

If they can maintain at least this quality, I think they are a shoe-in for continuation.

Looking at the 'movie insider website', there is now a blurb on Captain America: Civil war. Apparently there is a 'superhero registration act, (similar to the mutant registration act they were talking about implementing in Xmen 1), where Iron man (stark, again to be played by Downey Jr) is all for it, while Rodgers (again played by Evans) is against it, feeling it is a violation of civil rights.

That's the Civil War comic storyline, yeah. Most people seem to be in agreement that it'll form the basis of the movie--hence why they've brought RDJ on board in a big way.

I don't really mean to sound ignorant here...but I'm curious to know what happens after Phase 3. The story-arcs would be 'over' by then, so what would be in for Marvel thereafter?

Hard to say. I suppose it depends who on the original phase one and two casts want to keep coming back. One way or Nother though there can always be new heroes to add in for new movies. Plus Thanos is hardly the only big bad that the avengers and guardians have to face.

They have so many characters and stories in the Marvel Universe that they can keep it do phase 5 or 6 without any reboots or ending it.Iron Man for example has more than just Tony Stark as Iron Man, captain America has had another people as Captain America. Even Thor had Eric Masterson who took over as Thor and then became thunderstrike

Disney may even start buying/renting the likeness of the current actors for use in future Marvel Movies, The Hyperion Render Farm that Disney built to make Big Hero 6 was actually just a testing system for future development they plan on Adding GPU's soon to increase its rendering ability. So it wouldn't be unrealistic to expect by 2020 that a trully lifelike face can be used in a movie where an actor is too old or not able to be in it.

True. Just like Hugh jackman is having second thoughts of continuing his role as wolverine (supposedly) since it has been what, 14 years now he has played the part? I can see him going another 3 or so, but many stars do get tired of playing the same role. And there was talk Downey jr might have pulled out of avengers 2 for the same reason.

Master Chief Jack O Niell
December 15th, 2014, 10:04 AM
There is word that Hugh Jackman may take a break for a few years and go back one last time for the old man logan storyline. Otherwise they are going to have to do CGI modifications for him.
Its funny that he is even more ripped in the latest movies then in the first 3

Ikorni
December 15th, 2014, 08:07 PM
I do imagine that the actors would want to move onto other challenges to prevent getting typecast, although Hugh Jackman is well on his way to being remembered as Wolverine more than he is say, for his singing abilities.

The whole point of moving on to stuff like the Guardian of the Galaxy and Inhuman and Captain Marvel was so they could move away from characters such as Ironman and Captain America and avoid the issue of recasting.

But since in the comics there has been other Iron Men and Captain America it isn't such an issue that requires an entire reboot. Thor is the only one that has an issue because like wolverine he ages very slow. But they can still use CGI to "de-age" him if he is still going to be in a movie 10 years from now.

There has been more than one Thor.. Anyone worthy of wielding Mjolnir becomes the new Thor (Whosoever wields this hammer, if they be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor) so if they ever need a new one there's an easy way to explain it without rebooting :D

DC/Warner is being ambitious, far beyond what they can reasonably expect IMO.

Marvel is playing to its established strengths.

Sony is desperately trying to cling to that Spider-Man license.

Fox is just off in la-la land doing their own thing.

Bucky was Captain America for a while and Falcon is right now, so either one of them would make sense as a replacement Cap. There's a female Thor right now, and they can always bring in different characters. The Avengers typically have a rotating cast.

Breaking news: The long-rumored alliance between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures is a go, Spider-Man is officially joining the MCU (http://marvel.com/news/movies/24062/sony_pictures_entertainment_brings_marvel_studios_into_the_amazing_world_of_spid er-man). The character's first solo outing will be July 28, 2017, previously scheduled as the release date for Thor: Ragnarok. The schedule for the remaining Phase 3 films will be shifting (http://marvel.com/news/movies/24065/marvel_studios_schedules_new_release_dates_for_4_films) a bit to accommodate the new entry, and thus the updated Phase 3 slate is as follows (additions/changed dates are in bold):

May 6, 2016 - Captain America: Civil War

November 4, 2016 - Doctor Strange

May 5, 2017 - Guardians of the Galaxy 2

July 28, 2017 - untitled Spider-Man solo movie

November 3, 2017 - Thor: Ragnarok

May 4, 2018 - Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1

July 6, 2018 - Black Panther

November 2, 2018 - Captain Marvel

May 3, 2019 - Avengers: Infinity War, Part 2

July 12, 2019 - Inhumans


ETA: There isn't enough ice in the world to help with that burn Fox is feeling right now... ;)

I can only guess it's due to the lack of any background contextual ties to the MCU. They're in New York, but no Stark Tower on the skyline? No references to the Battle of New York, news stories about Tony's shenanigans, Captain America visiting the troops, etc., on the TV in the background of a scene? Game over. One of the biggest hallmarks of the MCU that Marvel Studios prides itself on is the shared continuity between all the solo franchises, and none of the previous Spidey films has it.

Never, ever assume that just because one wants to play nice, everyone does. This rivalry has been going on for YEARS, and Fox would rather run X-Men and Fantastic Four into the ground than even work with Marvel Studios, much less relinquish the film rights back to Marvel. Sorry honey, but you're just going to have to get used to disappointment on this issue. ;)

Honestly, I feel the same way. I'm certainly interested in seeing how an MCU Spidey turns out, but there's a damn lot of stuff already going on. Phase 3 now has almost as many films as both Phase 1 and Phase 2 combined, for pity's sake. :eek:
