Today three really important things happened in Marvel. Throughout the day, I saw some pretty amazing announcements. But I also noticed some things that perhaps, not all of you noticed. I am digging into my Marvel knowledge bank and sharing this all with you. I want to know your thoughts on these announcements – so please comment below and let me know!
Infinity War Posters
Today five new beautiful Avengers: Infinity War posters were released. I could spend all day telling you guys about why I love each and every single one of them (I mean, HELLO BUCKY, am I right?). But I want to focus on what these posters didn’t tell us. We still have no Hawkeye. Where is he? The Russo Brothers have said he will be “on his own adventure”, and I think I know what it is. I would bet money on the fact that Hawkeye has a transition into Ronin VERY early on in this movie, and that is why we are not seeing him in the promotions. This could be considered spoilery, so they are hiding it from us.
Another thing I noticed immediately is that we see no orange poster. Orange, the color of the Soul Stone. I think this could be because – brace yourself – we won’t see the Soul Stone in Infinity War. Perhaps, we will not see it until Avengers 4 next year. Or perhaps, Hawkeye and the Soul Stone and tied together and that is why they are hiding both from us. My inner Marvel comic book nerd desperately wants Adam Warlock to be tied to the Soul Stone, but due to the fact that Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 will be after Avengers 4, I think he might end up with it once Thanos is defeated.
Captain Marvel Production Starts
Marvel Studios has begun principal photography in Los Angeles, California, on its newest film, “Captain Marvel.” The production is shooting in and around the greater Los Angeles area, which will also serve as the production base for the film. The production will also shoot on location in Fresno, California, as well as locations in Louisiana, including Baton Rouge and New Orleans.
Set for release in the United States on March 8, 2019, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is directed by the writing/directing team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain Marvel is a HUGE part of the Marvel comics world – especially when it comes to the Infinity Stones. So this means a lot. I cannot wait to see where they take her character. Her current story arc is pretty incredible, and I hope we see some of it on the big screen!
AGENT COULSON in Captain Marvel!
Pointed out by ComicBook.com earlier today, eagle eyed fans noticed Clark Gregg’s (who plays Agent Coulson) name among those actors in Captain Marvel, alongside Brie Larson. Here is the thing though, this does NOT mean that he will be alive and well at the end of this season of Agents of SHIELD. Don’t get me wrong, I want him to be. So desperately. But Captain Marvel takes place in the 1990s, not in the current time. So this means his appearance will likely be to debrief her on something. Possibly just a quick cameo for fun, and that is it. I know, I am crying inside (and maybe a little bit on the outside) too.
