The E3 Convention/Expo is underway and I have a number of colleagues in attendance doing reporting for their respective mediums. Their being there led me to follow some of the activity for our Pop Culture focuses since video games are often based on the Toys, Comics and Film items that are discussed on that section of the PiercingMetal.com website. When I saw the trailer for the upcoming 2020 release of “Marvel’s Avengers” by the folks at Square Enix, I knew that I had to share it with the readership. Take a look down below.
About The Game: Marvel’s Avengers begins at A-Day, where Captain America, Iron Man, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Thor are unveiling a hi-tech Avengers Headquarters in San Francisco — including the reveal of their own helicarrier powered by an experimental energy source. The celebration turns deadly when a catastrophic accident results in massive devastation. Blamed for the tragedy, the Avengers disband. Five years later, with all Super Heroes outlawed and the world in peril, the only hope is to reassemble Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Marvel Entertainment and Square Enix are excited to unveil Marvel’s Avengers, an epic action-adventure game that combines cinematic storytelling with single-player and co-operative gameplay. Developed by Crystal Dynamics in collaboration with Eidos-Montréal, Nixxes Software, and Crystal Northwest, Marvel’s Avengers will release simultaneously for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, Stadia, and PC on May 15, 2020.

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.
Looks pretty good doesn’t it? I like that we see both Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch in a lot of the action sequences and of course the deadly Ultron. I was a little surprised that we don’t see The Vision but perhaps his revelation is a big surprise in how it comes to pass in the film. We know he is in the feature since its been a part of the talking. What do you guys and girls think? Let me know in the comments.
I had initially planned on putting up a broadcast per interesting news item but the stuff that came flying at my mailbox from the Marvel Comics side this week was just too fast for that and as many readers have seen, there had been several tour announcements to dish out. That said I lumped all three of these interesting and somewhat major happenings in the Marvel Universe into one post. I hope you will forgive me for taking the easy way out this time around 🙂 Let’s get down to business.
1. Thor Gets In Touch With His Feminine Side & Becomes A Woman: On the Tuesday episode of “The View” Marvel made the announcement that Thor would become a female in a move to attract more people to the franchise. Writer Jason Aaron was quoted as saying “This is not She-Thor. This is not Lady Thor. This is not Thorita. This is THOR. This is the THOR of the Marvel Universe. But it’s unlike any Thor we’ve ever seen before.”
If you are a fan of what’s been going on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then I say that its high time to pay a little mind to the smaller screen in your home (but if you are like me that is probably some kind of giant LCD screen so not too small in theory). That being said check out this new animated offering that features “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” in “Avengers Assemble”. The poster and premise are below.
So the other day at SDCC they announced some of the upcoming Marvel superhero films that will continue to expand upon their shared cinematic universe and I will say that I am all for them if they continue the excellence that we found in Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Incredible Hulk and The Avengers. I downloaded the logos for each of them and will speak a little bit about the offerings and what I personally hope we can expect. Continue reading The Marvel Cinematic Universe Will Expand 🙂→
