Marvel has certainly blown us out of the water these past two weeks! First, they tell us Captain America 3 will follow the Civil War story-line, pitting Captain versus Iron Man, then they release the first teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron (which was absolutely AWESOME). Then they proceed to share that Benedict Cumberbatch is in final negotiations to play Dr. Strange and release the schedule of movies up until 2019. All of which nearly gave me a heart attack ;) So here's the schedule!
And as if that wasn't enough, they release a clip of the team trying to lift Thor's hammer, namely Steve and Tony; and get this: Steve actually moves it ever so slightly, to Thor's initial dismay :) To be honest, this scene was adorable, though that may not be the best choice of word. But seriously, it shows the wonderful camaraderie of the team and I loved it. ;)
Yet another clip a Marvel fan so graciously shared with us was once again between Tony and Steve. These two men don't see eye to eye and it is particularly obvious here. They're discussing what the "Maximoff kid" Scarlet Witch showed each of them. According to speculation, the glimpse of Cap in 1940s from the trailer and the heartbreaking image of Thor lying on the ground and the shield shattered at his side are both visions Scarlet Witch shows Steve and Tony. Tony seems pretty shaken and tells Steve he "doesn't trust guys without a dark side" when it appears Steve has come out of the experience okay. They proceed to get into a heated argument (over what exactly, I don't know) In his anger, Steve grabs up a piece of wood and breaks it in two with his bare hands, as if it were a piece of paper, saying "Every time someone tries to stop a war before it starts innocent people die. Every time."
So, us Marvel fans will certainly be busy in the coming years! And I can't wait! Only about 7 months till Avengers: Age of Ultron. And only 47 days until The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies! ;)
