This has been quite the week for Marvel fans! We’ve gotten not one, but two movie trailers! The second trailer for Captain Marvel was released during Monday Night Football and it looks AMAZING! (It’s also the only reason you’ll see me watch part of a football game! 😂)
My favorite part was Nick Fury petting and making a fuss over her cat! Captain Marvel will be released March 8, 2019. I can’t wait!
And at long last, we FINALLY got our first Avengers 4 trailer. And We also FINALLY know the title: Avengers: Endgame.
The release date is now set for April 26, 2019.
The trailer doesn’t show much, but what it does show is heartbreaking. I’m excited and scared for this movie at the same time. I also have questions like who’s gonna rescue Tony and what is Scott doing out of the Quantum Realm? Or is even out of the Quantum Realm in the first place? (Someone on Twitter pointed out that the footage of Scott could be from the archives, and if I have to suffer so will you! *Insert evil laugh here*) April feels like to long a wait, but it will be here before we know it!
Marvel Studios has reported that the trailer is now the most watched trailer in history with 289 million views in 24 hours!

The Men In Black spin-off starring Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson now has a title and a release date. It’s called Men In Black: International and will be released June 14, 2019. Chris Hemsworth shared the first official movie still on his Twitter.
There was a rumor that the first Spider-Man: Far From Home would be released this past Saturday. It was shown at CCXP, a comic con in Brazil. It hasn’t been released online yet, and no release date is confirmed, but it should be released very soon. Possibly as soon as next week. The trailer will be shared on our Facebook page upon release.
And for those worried if the trailer will spoil Avengers: Endgame, don’t worry. It’s been shared that the trailer doesn’t reveal what happened in Infinity War and doesn’t give a clue as to what happens in Endgame.
My Marvelous Escape News: We crossed 4K likes and are still growing! When I started this page 10 months ago, the only goal I had in mind was 1K by the end of the year. Thank you so much for being a part of our little community, and we hope to keep the party going into 2019. Thanks to my fellow admins, without you I most likely would have deleted this page when it hit 800 and got to be too overwhelming. I’m so glad I didn’t. Thanks for everything y’all do for this page. ❤️
To celebrate our little milestone, we’ll be having a Marvel related Q&A with the admins in the very near future.
I’m also still having a little trouble with Facebook and not being able to set up our new role play group so that it’s completely functional. Please be patient and I’ll have things up and running as soon as possible.
Admin Trials are tentatively set for the end of January 2019. If interested, please message us for an application. We can’t wait to hear from you!
I’ll see you next week for another News Roundup.
Over and out,
