Presenting Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Phase 3”

Yesterday the cooler than cool cats at Marvel Studios announced their full slate of films that will make up what is going to be the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Phase 3” offerings. I’ve snagged the logos for said films and their title and I will toss in my opinions on each of them as we go through the list. Fair enough? Okay let’s go.

Captain America: Civil War – It doesn’t surprise me that the “Phase 3” is leading off with a Captain America film because “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” was just so damned exciting and loaded with action. I admit that I am not 100% convinced about “Civil War” being the best tale since so many other heroes were involved in that storyline and many of them are not properties of the Marvel Studios group. Both Fantastic Four and Spider-Man are used by 20th Century Fox and Sony respectively.

Doctor Strange: Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! So do I sound excited about the introduction of The Sorcerer Supreme to the MCU? You bet your sweet bippy that I am. We’ve seen that Marvel Studios can successfully bring us into other worlds thanks to “Guardians Of The Galaxy” so I am very hopeful about their being able to give us a Ditko-esque landscape when the good doctor begins weaving his spells on us.

Logo - Avengers Age Of Ultron

While tooling around the Net this morning I learned that the teaser trailer for the upcoming Marvel Studios film “Avengers: Age Of Ultron” has been leaked and with this being the case, they added it to their own YouTube.com channel for all to enjoy. As a lifelong geek for things that are comic book related I just had to toss this post together for you to check it out.

Premise: In Avengers: Age of Ultron, the Avengers must work together to defeat Ultron, a technological enemy bent on human extinction. – That’s pretty much all we need to describe the goings on in this film since the trailers have shown it to be loaded with action and super heroic feats. That is all I need at least. Check out the main cast for this one.
