If Zoe Saldana’s slip-up is legit, and I’m going to go ahead and believe it is, first comes the War for the MCU. Then comes the Gauntlet. It fits in with my self-satisfied prediction, which is that the third Avengers flick is all about Thanos acquiring the Infinity Stones, and the fourth movie is all about him wielding them.
Thanos’ motivation in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ will resemble ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ storyline. No shit.
Little bit of “no shit’ news to feed the slop-culture drone machine on this Monday. Did you know, could you fathom, that the storyline so obviously inspired by Marvel’s Infinity Gauntlet will feature motivations taken from, wait for it, Infinity Gauntlet? But, hey. I’m down to talk anything Infinity War, so here we are.
So. First we had Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1 and Part 1. Then it was announced that there was not going to be a “Part 1” and “Part 2”, with the third and fourth movies getting their own titles. Now! Now it’s been announced that the third movie futzing *is* Avengers: Infinity War, and the fourth one is untitled. WHEW.
For months it has been speculated, thought, and everything but confirmed that the Russo Brothers would take the Avengers Reins from Joss Whedon following Age of Ultron. What was rumored seems poised to come to pass.
Don’t. Don’t even fucking joke around with me on this one. Don’t even fucking play me, Latino Review!
Last night the RDJ+CP3=MCU’sCW news broke. And while I dug it, I agreed with most who were all “Wait, Civil War, already?” But what I was hoping (OH HOPES OF HOPE) was that Cap 3 was merely the jumping-off point for Cinematic Civil War. The kick-off, the impetus, the boiling point. And if the rumors of the Russo Brothers maybe/sorta directing the next two Avengers movies are true, it would help perpetuate my hope. Sanctify it. In blood and comic book flesh and the mewling whimper of a decaying star’s doomed infancy.
Oh God My Gooey Junk: Spider-Man may join Marvel Cinematic Universe. PERMISSION TO LOSE F**KING MIND
I’m not going to get TOO FUCKING PUMPED about this news. Because a similar shade of rumor popped up around the release of Avengers. But oh dearest me, if Sony can swing some sort of money-slicked deal with Marvel to make this work, my dick is your battering ram.
Avengers 3 may not feature the stars of the MCU’s Phase 1 and Phase 2? Interesting. I could see this working, if only because the film is rumored to be split into two halves. The first half features a cavalcade of newbies led by Star-Lord (and perhaps Captain America), only to have the “real” Avengers arrive in Avengers 3.5?
I have to believe at this point RDJ is just doing some adorable posturing when it comes to Iron Man 4. Like, sure he runs his mouth, and hints that he’s not sure if it’ll happen. Referencing his age and shit. But as others have rightfully pointed out, I think this can all be translated to “If the money and the script are right.”
Avengers 3 is going to be a big, frothy, gushing, ass-clenching, vision-blowing climax orgasming out of the gooey guts of Marvel’s Pleasure Organs. The culmination of their entire cinematic endeavor so far. To the point where I’m wondering, “Where the fuck do they go from there?” So it makes sense that this flick will be two-movies, seeing as almost every “Trilogy” these days sees its final installment split into two.
