It’s that time of year again! Rather than reflecting on the past year’s films, I’ll be looking to the films of next year and ranking my anticipation for them!
The reason why I have so little MCU fan-cast is because many of the characters have already been cast. So I decided to do a single post that fan-casts the missing members of the Avengers team or in the MCU in general.
Ryan Reynolds has shared on his social media accounts the first official looks at new characters in the Deadpool-verse, Cable and Domino!
It’s been a long time coming since the official announcement that Cable and Domino would join the Deadpool sequel. Domino’s casting was released a bit back ago but Cable was just recently announced, and it’s a surprising casting choice.
The third film in the Thor trilogy (?) is heading to theaters this November and we are finally getting some first looks at quite a different take on the hero and Asgard.
It’s no secret that the recent attempt at a Fantastic Four reboot failed critically and financially. It’s led to many fans (including myself) wanting another new reboot so we can forget that attempt of a reboot, which would’ve been part of Fox’s Marvel cinematic universe. For this fan-cast, it’s pretty open to where ever F4 ends up – still with Fox or joining the Disney/MCU.
Here’s the timeline for comic book films coming out next year! We have 3 from Marvel/Disney, 2 from WB/DC, 1 from Fox/Marvel, and 1 from Fox/Icon. There are probably more adaptations out there I’m missing but these are the ones I’ll likely end up seeing. Now the question here is which of these 7 am I looking forward to most? Which will see critical success and which will see box office success? Here’s what I think (and let me know what you think)!
It was reported by Variety early June that Brie Larson was in talks to play Carol Danvers, the first female superhero from Marvel to get a solo film. It’s stated that Marvel plans to get the actress cast early in case of a possibility of showing up in a film before her solo in 2019. The only announcements for the film so far had been the script writers, Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman (Inside Out).
One other big panel appeared in Hall H and that was Marvel Studios’ movies. Obviously, Doctor Strange, GotG Vol 2, and Spider-Man Homecoming showed up and surprisingly Black Panther and even Captain Marvel (although short) made an appearance.
Bottom line: A better trilogy than Iron Man’s and better film than Age of Ultron, but falls short to The Winter Soldier.
