The Obligatory ‘Avengers Endgame’ Trailer post.

Here we go, folks.

Final roll of the dice.  Oh, sure, Captain Marvel drops before then, and that will be something to observe.  But Avengers: Endgame is where Marvel/Disney demonstrates whether they’ve been wasting our time up until now.  Guess we’ll see in April!

PS: Paul Rudd is just about perfect there at the end, mind you.

Phase Two Of The Great Marvel Fan-Madness to break out this weekend.

[Geek Tyrant] puts it succinctly enough: “Multiple sources confirmed that the trailer was supposed to drop today, but I found out this morning that the trailer has been pushed to Friday, December 7th. …It’s also being reported by Collider that the first trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home will drop this Saturday, December 8th during the Sony Panel at Comic-Con Experience in São Paulo, Brazil, and it will then make its way online shortly after.”  The reason for this?  GHWB’s lying-in-state — and there are any number of people who are doubly grinding their teeth over that, let me tell you*.

Marvel reportedly to drop Captain Marvel, Avengers 4 trailers this week.

The Time of the Universal Losing of the Excrement is upon us, in other words:

According to entertainment YouTuber John Campea, Marvel Studios will debut the new trailer for Captain Marvel at halftime during tomorrow’s Monday Night Football matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington football team.

Marvel fans and bloggers Daniel RPK and Manabyte have also been dropping teases all week, confirming the Captain Marvel news in the wake of Campea’s tweet. They also purported that the Avengers 4 trailer will be coming on Wednesday, December 5th, possibly during the episode of Good Morning America.

So, it’s official: Disney+ to do Loki shows.

They’re calling the Disney streaming service ‘Disney+’ now, in case that wasn’t obvious.  Anyway, this comes from the company, and it’s been hinted at before: (more…)

Oh, boy! It’s news that there’s going to be an Avengers 4 trailer this year!

Can we just think about that for a moment?  Avengers 4, the last time I checked, is coming out in May of 2019.  That’s about six months from now, more or less.  Of course they’re going to put out a trailer in the next two months.  Captain Marvel is coming out in March, and they put out the trailer for that in mid-September.  The odds that Disney would play it weird at this point are just about nil.

Chalk it up to the ravenous content maw that is the modern Internet.  I personally can’t wait for the teaser to the trailer to Avengers 4, myself.  And I absolutely know that that’s going to happen.  I know this because it’s happened in the past, and the studio wants the Avengers 4 hype to glow white-hot for as long as possible.  — And, to be fair: this entire MCU experiment culminates with that movie.  Can it all be pulled together, and leave the audience of hardcore watchers thinking Yeah, that was worth it?  Disney/Marvel won’t know until next year, and the answer very well may shape the very nature of genre films for quite possibly the rest of my life.

So, hey, no pressure.

Marvel shows Scarlett Johansson the money: $15M for standalone film.

(Via @gabrielmalor.) Nice hunk of change, that: “Scarlett Johansson, who has appeared in six movies as Black Widow, is finally landing a $15 million payday for an upcoming stand-alone film centered on the Marvel superheroine, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.” This is Thor and Captain America-level cash; it also makes a good deal of sense, because I’m pretty sure that every person who reads this who also goes to movies in the theater will be planning to watch Black Widow acrobatically beat up a remarkable number of bad guys.

They’re also bringing back Ryan Coogler for Black Panther 2: “…Coogler’s camp shook off the peer pressure and took its time in making a deal, which occurred under the radar some time ago. Sources say the plan at this stage is for Coogler to write the script next year with an eye to start production in either late 2019 or early 2020.” To paraphrase somebody or other, the negotiations probably involved just how many dump trucks full of money Coogler would be getting.  ScarJo, Ryan, bubbelehs: your rule of thumb here should be all that the traffic will bear.  Make ’em make it rain.

The ‘Dark Phoenix’ trailer.

It looks good…

…but I have lost the thread of this iteration of the X-Men.  I’m not sure which movies I should see first to make sense of Dark Phoenix.  And I don’t even know how much to invest in this series now, given that it will eventually cross the event horizon that is Disney-Marvel.  I mean, most of this is going to go away when they decide to bring in the X-Men to the MCU in 2021 or so, right?

Disney giving Loki and Scarlet Witch their own miniseries.

Interesting, no?  “Marvel Studios will give a solo spotlight to both Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, with each getting a TV miniseries to be offered exclusively through the Disney streaming service that is expected to launch in late 2019.”
