CAPTAIN MARVEL (March 2019)
The first female-led Marvel film is centered on Carol Danvers. In the comics she’s a security chief working at the military compound where alien Kree hero Captain Marvel is based. They become romantically involved and when she is accidentally subjected to otherworldly Kree radiation her DNA takes on attributes of the alien race, transforming her into a superhuman. Her powers in the comic include flight, strength, and shooting energy bursts from her hands. For a time she has a split personality, unaware that she is also Ms.Marvel (or Captain Marvel as she is later called). She eventually goes on to lead The Avengers for a time. Marvel’s Kevin Feige has said that although her powers are cosmic, her adventures will take place on Earth.
AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR – PART II (May 2019)
See ‘Part I’.
INHUMANS (July 2019)
The Inhumans are a race of beings with superpowers, created when an alien race called the Kree (Ronan the Accuser, the main villain in ‘Guardians’, was a Kree) experimented on Earth’s early humans. Their powers come from being exposed to a substance called Terrigen Mist, but sometimes the risky process leaves them with deformities. The most prominent Inhumans have a royal family social structure: Black Bolt, for instance, is the king. He emits large amounts of energy and force through his voice. If he’s not careful, he can level cities by speaking. In order to get around his power, he has developed a telepathic bond with his wife. Medusa is the queen, with the ability of enhanced hair, which she can mentally command to do anything she wishes, from lifting heavy objects, shielding her or attack her enemies. Feige says “This would have some of the social drama that we haven’t really done yet. X-Men obviously has been touching on that stuff for a while.” Indeed this is being seen as Marvel Studios’ rival to Fox’s ‘X-Men’. Vin Diesel has dropped hints that he may be involved, the suspicion is as Black Bolt.
Despite fan demand, a solo Hulk movie is still not in the works. ‘Incredible Hulk’ was the most underperforming Marvel Studios product at the box office and Universal own the distribution rights to a Hulk standalone movie. Instead Marvel says they’ve devised an interesting arc for Hulk running from ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ through ‘Infinity – Part I’ to ‘Infinity – Part II’. They say it will feel like a Hulk movie when the three parts are added up. Unconfirmed rumours suggest this arc will be a loose adaptation of ‘Planet Hulk’.
