This one contains a lot of footage we haven’t seen in the previous trailers. And yeah, I’m still a little excited, because no matter how many great Marvel movies we see and subpar Wolverine movies we get, the X-Men were still my first real superheroes.
Captain America to challenge Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. Yes Marvel and DC movies will face off directly at the box office on May 6, 2016 with the third Captain America film and the Man of Steel sequel both opening the same weekend. Is Marvel’s head start and higher quality enough to take down DC’s three biggest names? All I know is that I’ll probably be seeing the one that’s not directed by Zack Snyder first.
Ahead of this afternoon’s Disney earning call, Marvel and Netflix have announced that they’re teaming up to produce for original 13-episode series’ featuring the characters Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage, that cumulate in a Defenders mini-series.
Disney already has a distribution deal with Netflix that will make them “the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies,” including Lucasfilm. (That deal starts in 2016, which means the 2014 ‘digital library’ hint is still open to interpretation.) Could this Marvel deal foreshadow something similar with Star Wars eventually? It’s early yet, but keep it in mind for the future.
Explosions! Black Widow! Nick Fury! The Falcon! Robert Redford!
Jedi News’ prolific Jedi Master SQL is back yet again with another rumor: An Episode VII teaser trailer of sorts will be attached to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which comes out April 4.
He claims the teaser will not be live action (although presumably they’ll have been filming for several months at that point) and will be similar to the Rebels one from the other day. He also says this will be the official announcement of the film’s release date: November 11, 2015.
Captain America is a fairly obvious pairing if we’re going to see some sort of teaser in theaters that early, but, as usual, I’m deeply skeptical. And doubly so when a supposed release date is involved. In any case, nothing is official until we hear it from Lucasfilm.
