From God To Alien Hunter

It’s been a slow week for Marvel news and most of this week’s tidbits are about the actor’s other projects. News will be sure to pick up again after the New year. In the meantime I hope to have one movie review posted.

Unfortunately, the Spider-Man Far From Home trailer wasn’t released like it was supposedly going to. I’ve got no idea when they’ll release it. Hopefully, it will be soon.

According to  Peter Sciretta from Slashfilm, a couple of people have been allowed to read James Gunn’s script for Guardians 3. It’s so emotional that it’s made them cry.

Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula, told People in an interview “… I don’t have any details as to when [the next Guardians will come out] but there’s a script in existence.”

     She cheekily added, I may have had a little teeny peek, but I can’t say anything.” 

Let’s get through one tear-jerker at a time, please. We have Endgame to get through and I am not done recovering from Infinity War yet. I’m so not ready for another emotional roller coaster ride.

The Oscars recently released the shortlist of their nominees and all three of the MCU films that were released this year  have been nominated for awards.

    Black Panther has made the shortlist for Makeup and Hairstyling, Original Score, Original Song, and Visual Effects.

    Infinity War has been shortlisted for Original Score and Visual Effects.

    Antman And The Wasp has been shortlisted for Visual Effects.

The final nominations will be revealed on January 22, 2019. Fingers crossed that an MCU film will finally be recognized by the Academy!

There’s a rumor going around that a future MCU film will have scenes set during WWI. An Italian site Badtaste.it has cited newspaper, I l Saviglianese, the castle and historic center of Racconigi are going to be used for filming scenes for an upcoming Marvel film. Filming is said to take place during April and May of next year. The report also claims that the director was seen in the area, but the director’s name wasn’t given. No one knows what movie is going to be filmed there, but it’s possible the scenes could be for Black Widow, which is the next movie set to start filming early next year. The Eternals is another possibility but nothing has been confirmed.

An MCU movie has never been set during WWI before, so if any of this turns out to be true, it will be an interesting era of history to explore. Dear Marvel, you have my attention!

Cate Blanchett (Hela In Thor Ragnarok) stars in the upcoming movie Where’d You Go, Bernadette? It’s based on the book of the same name by Maria Semple. The first trailer came out a couple days ago, and it looks very interesting.

It comes out in theaters March 22, 2019.

The IMAX trailer for Avengers Endgame has been released this weekend, both in theaters and online. You can watch it below. It’s the same trailer, you just see a few more details than you do in the original. For example, it is Nebula you see reaching for Tony. So that bursts the bubble in the “It’s Loki!” theory.

    Avengers Endgame will be released April 26, 2019.

The head of Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+, Kevin Mayer, told The Hollywood Reporter that it’s a possibility that the canceled  Marvel Netflix shows could be be revived on Disney+. However, it won’t be anytime soon because the Netflix contract states that the characters from the canceled shows can’t be used in other projects until two years after cancellation.

Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes) has been very busy this year and has several new movies coming out, including Destroyer, which will be released Christmas Day. The final trailer is below.

The first look at the new film Monday starring Sebastian Stan and Deniese Gough was released by Variety.

9FFB22D1-E98E-4049-BEF5-B8A8C87D8C04

The above picture is enough to sell me on this movie alone. The synopsis given reads:

Monday” follows the story of Mickey (Stan) and Chloe (Gough), two Americans in their mid-thirties living in Athens, who “meet in the heat of summer one whirlwind weekend,” according to a statement. “When Chloe’s time in Greece is drawing to a close, she decides to give up her high-flying job back home and explore whether one weekend’s passion can stand the reality of the inevitable Monday.”

I’m up for a romance any time. This sounds like it could be really good!

Sebastian will also star in the movie I’m Not Here. It comes out April 25, 2019. You can watch the first trailer below.

Marvel announced that there will be a two issue prelude comic for Spider-Man Far From Home. The first issue will be released next March and retells the story from Spider-Man Homecoming.

The poster and first trailer for Men In Black: International starring Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Tessa Thompson (Valkerie). You can check out the trailer below.1659A7F8-349D-44AD-AEC8-6E5E36DDBF08

It looks really cool. I can’t wait to see it! It comes out June 14, 2019.

Adam McKay (He helped Paul Rudd rewrite Antman) was on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast and said that he has been approached by Marvel to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3. He also said that Marvel is “kicking around a Nova idea,” and that he would like the chance to make a Silver Surfer movie.

There is currently no word on whether he will be the one to replace James Gunn on Guardians 3.

According to IMDB, the two most anticipated 2019 films are Avengers 4 and Captain Marvel.

     Insomniac Games has released the Sam Raimi Spider-Man suit for all players on Spider-Man for PS4.

The Christmas EP A Very Spidey Christmas featured in Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse has been released. You can now own gems like this:

The speaking part towards the end is particularly entertaining!

In a recent interview with Collider , director Guillermo del Toro was asked if he’d ever direct a film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s interested in doing so, but only if it focuses on characters that are monsters. He said, “I’m not interested in superheroes that aren’t monsters.”

So, Marvel, you know what to do. “Get this man a monster!”

In an interview with IGN, Kelly Port from Digital Domain, the company responsible for Infinity War’s visual effects, revealed that Red Skull was recreated entirely with CGI and that actor Ross Marquand only provided the voice.

The Russo Brothers said in an interview with Empire Magazine that “there’s a high probability that this movie (Avengers 4) will clock in at around three hours.” They say, “It’s a big movie with a lot of story.” 9C74E14C-AA47-4A25-BA26-0FBC22DD1888

I sure hope there’s an intermission if this turns out to be the case!

This will most likely be the last News Roundup of the year. I will try to have at least one movie review posted. The news will start up again in the new year and the News Roundup will return.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year. I am so thankful for everyone involved in this community and am looking forward to seeing where the Facebook page and site go next in the New Year. Thanks for celebrating the MCU with us! ❤️

Over and out,

Captain Stark

Oh, There’s My Avengers 4 Trailer!

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!

     Deadline announced the nominations for the 2019 Annie Awards. Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse isn’t even out yet and has been nominated for Best Animated Feature Production, Character Animation in an Animated Feature Production , Directing in an Animated Feature Production, Production Design in an Animated Feature Production, Writing in Animated Feature Production, and Editorial in an Animated Feature Production.

     Early Man has also been nominated for Best Animated Feature Production, Character Animation in an Animated Feature Production, Directing in an Animated Feature Production, and Production Design in an Animated Feature Production; Best Animated Effects in an Animated Feature Production, Music in an Animated Feature Production, and a Voice acting in an Animated Feature Production nomination for Eddie Redmayne for playing Dug.

     Isle Of Dogs has also been nominated for Best Animated Feature, Character Animation in an Animated Feature Production, and Production Design in an Animated Feature Production. Bryan Cranston is also up for a voice acting nomination for playing Chief. The Annie Awards air online February 2, 2019 at annieawards.org.

*The only movies listed are ones with Marvel actors in them. (Tom Hiddleston, Early Man; Jeff Goldblum, Isle Of Dogs) For a full list of nominations, please go to annieawards.org.

     Deadline also announced this week that Marvel will be introducing it’s first Asian superhero Shang-Chi into the MCU. Dave Callaham, a Chinese-American screenwriter, will write the script, and Marvel is currently looking for a director of Asian descent.

     Deadline also reported that Brie Larson will star in a new Netflix movie called I’m Thinking Of Ending Things based on the novel of the same name by Ian Reid and adapted and directed by Charlie Kaufman.

     Black Panther continues to break records by being the first superhero film to be nominated for Best Picture (Drama) at the Golden Globes. It’s also nominated for Best Original Score and Best Original Score (Motion Picture).

     Black Panther: The Album has been nominated for several Grammy Awards including Album Of The  Year, Record Of The Year, Best Song from a Film, Best Rap Performance, Best Rap/Sung Performance, and Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media.

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.2DD0E676-5725-40A7-8D48-208149BAA8FD

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.

Losing A Legend And Gaining An Agents Renewal.

Earlier this week we lost a legend when Stan Lee, co-creator of Marvel Comics, passed away at the age of 95. He was the creator or co-creator of an innumerable amount of characters including Dr. Strange, Spider-Man, Thor, Hulk, and Iron Man. He changed the comics industry forever with these memorable characters and will be greatly missed.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Agents of Shield got renewed for a seventh season ahead of its season 6 premiere in Summer 2019. Just like season 6, season 7 will have 13 episodes. There is no word if Clark Gregg will be returning as Agent Coulson, but don’t freak out yet! Just because there’s no news, it doesn’t mean that he won’t return. At this point, revealing anything about our favorite agent would be considered a spoiler, if you remember how the story ended in season 5. (No spoilers for those who haven’t seen it yet!)

Tom Hiddleston will be returning to the London stage in Harold Pinter’s Betrayel during Jamie Lloyd’s Pinter at the Pinter season to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the playwright’s death. Tom will be playing Robert, one of the four characters in the play, which is about a seven- year extramarital affair shown in reverse chronological order. The play will run from March to June 2019 and general admission tickets are available November 30.

The Hashtag Show released the character breakdowns for two upcoming Phase 4 films, Black Widow and The Eternals. You can check out the character breakdowns in the links provided below:

Black Widow: http://thathashtagshow.com/2018/11/12/exclusive-marvel-studios-black-widow-character-breakdowns-revealed-as-casting-gets-underway/

The Eternals: http://www.thathashtagshow.com/2018/11/16/exclusive-the-eternals-character-lineup-revealed/

They also reported that Black Widow is expected to start filming in February or March of 2019 while The Eternals is rumored to start filming in September 2019.

Last but not least, The DisInsider reported that there’s a rumor about who will replace James Gunn as director of Guardians Vol. 3. Marvel is considering Bumblebee director, Travis Knight. He’s known for directing several animated films including Kubo And The Two Strings and Boxtrolls. Remember, this is just a rumor and nothing has been confirmed, but it’s nice to know that Marvel is eventually planning to continuing the Guardians franchise, even without James Gunn at the helm.

My Marvelous Escape page news: We plan on having admin trials sometime in January before our page’s first anniversary. If you’re interested, please message us on Facebook and someone will send you an application. We can’t wait to hear from you!

Our page’s first anniversary is on February 5, 2019. If you have any ideas on how we can celebrate, please message us, or leave your ideas in the comments section below. We enjoy getting our page members involved in what we’re doing. ❤️ We also hope to bring you some fun activities in the near future, including a Marvel Q&A with the admins once we hit 4K likes. Thanks for liking My Marvelous Escape. We couldn’t have this page without you.

Thank you also to my fellow admins. I couldn’t do this thing without you, and I love and appreciate every single one of you. ❤️

That’s it for this week’s My Marvelous Escape’s News Roundup. I hope to do this  once a week or every other week. See ya next time.

Over and out,

Captain Stark
