Daredevil Has a Poster Captain Marvel Has a Secret More MCU News

first_img James Gunn Once Again Directing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’Dark Phoenix Trailer Released & More Marvel Movie News There may not be any more MCU movies coming out in 2018, but there’s still at least one thing to look forward to this year. Daredevil is getting a third season… sometime later this year. After that exciting tease at the end of Iron Fist Season Two, we’ve been anxiously awaiting more from The Man Without Fear. Sorry, Danny. You got a lot better in Season Two, but you were not who we were most excited to see. We’ll probably see a lot more from Daredevil during the show’s panel at New York Comic Con, but for now, the new season has a poster. That may not sound like much, but it’s a very good poster.via Marvel/NetflixWell, that’s certainly effective. It’s not often an image can give you chills, but the sight of Daredevil’s mask hanging from a large, bare cross all bathed in red certainly does the trick. The religious iconography is more than a cheap attention grab here. As we all know, Daredevil’s Catholicism is a deeply important part of his character. The show’s official Twitter account has also been tweeting Bible verses in anticipation of the new season. Religion will play a major role in the story of Season Three, it seems. Accompanying this poster was Job 30:26. But when I hoped for good, evil came, and when I waited for light, darkness came.” Which could describe almost any Daredevil story, really.Others include Romans 2:8. “But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger.” Which sounds like something Matt Murdock would use to justify putting on a mask and fighting the criminals of Hell’s Kitchen. Later, the account tweeted this. Which other MCU characters would you like to see get their own TV series? https://t.co/RLj1OjcAxB— Variety (@Variety) September 19, 2018The fans are demanding a Winter Soldier/Bucky Barnes series starring Sebastian Stan. That probably means Disney should just make it, right? It does make sense. At this point in the MCU, he’s the character we know the least about. We don’t really know everything that happened to him between him appearing to die in World War II and showing up during Hydra’s takeover of S.H.I.E.L.D. A series that dives into all that would definitely be interesting. I have a feeling Disney is going to want to keep Stan in the movies, though. With Chris Evans on his way out as Captain America, and Bucky being called White Wolf at the end of Black Panther, Marvel Studios appears to have much bigger plans in mind for the character.Sebastian Stan in Captain America: The Winter Soldier (Photo via Marvel)Then again, there’s no reason he can’t be in both. Who could say no to that face?Finally, there’s nothing Avengers 4 directors Joe and Anthony Russo like more than a good tease. They’re masters of it at this point, too. The directors posted what looks like an innocuous set photo on Twitter with an instruction to “look hard.” Deuteronomy 30:15. pic.twitter.com/I79ewdjfQe— Daredevil (@Daredevil) September 20, 2018“See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.” Interesting. Are these verses meant to show us how Matt sees the world, or are they a commentary on his actions? The religious references are especially appropriate this season, which is based on the “Born Again” storyline from the comics. The Frank Miller-penned arc sees The Kingpin learning Daredevil’s secret identity and destroying Matt Murdock’s life. As everything spirals out of control, Matt starts to go insane. That certainly puts all the biblical references to darkness into context. The arc also sees him start to put a new life back together. The season won’t be a direct one-to-one adaptation of the comics, of course. In the MCU, Matt Murdock is still presumed dead after the events of The Defenders. Still, it’s easy to imagine this season showing Murdock coming back, making Wilson Fisk’s life inconvenient and then being found out.And yes, it means that Vincent D’Onofrio’s Kingpin will be the main villain once again. The fact that nobody could follow him is one of the things that dragged down Season Two. I can’t wait to see more of his terrifying performance later this year.A poster and some cryptic Bible quotes are cool and all, but don’t forget that Captain Marvel got a full trailer this week. While we were all busy gushing over how cool she looks and how strange it is to see young Nick Fury and Phil Coulson, Marvel also put out a movie poster that may contain a sneaky Easter egg. Here’s the poster in question.via MarvelAwesome poster, right? But look closely in the bottom left and you’ll find the first appearance of an important Captain Marvel character. io9 Deputy Editor Jill Pantozzi was one of the first to point it out. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Look hard… pic.twitter.com/NxI8RFh4f6— Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) September 19, 2018And that’s exactly what fans have been doing. There’s a very clear A in the ladder there, and som have also pointed out that the equipment case to the right appears to form an E. That could confirm the popular theory that the title of the Avengers 4 will be Avengers: Endgame. But the Russos have said the title won’t be taken from a significant line from Avengers: Infinity War, which would rule out “Endgame” as a possibility. Still, it’s entirely possible that plans have changed since then, or that it’s some other title that begins with E. Avengers: End of Infinity maybe? Or Avengers Eternal?Over on Reddit, some fans are speculating that the word “Thanos” is hidden in the photo, which could be all the Russos are pointing out here. There are certainly a few of those letters scattered around the photo, including an upside-down T just left of center. Not much of a reveal, but a fun picture hunt nonetheless. Hopefully, we’ll figure out what the Russo’s want us to find before Avengers 4, whatever it’s called, arrives May 3, 2019.We’ve got a list of every comic book TV show that’s in production, including all the Marvel Netflix shows.

Stay on target I’M SORRY I HAD TO COMPLETELY BLOW OUT YOUR POSTER @captainmarvel BUT HELLO KITTTTTTTY! pic.twitter.com/QBoGkBS4Z8— House on Haunted Jill (@JillPantozzi) September 18, 2018That’s a cat! And just like any good cat, it’s introducing itself butt-first while you’re trying to concentrate on something else. In the comics, Carol has a cat named Chewie who accompanies her all on all her space adventures. It appears the movie will be no different in that regard. Chewie also isn’t a normal cat. Carol discovers that her beloved pet is a Flerken, an alien that looks like a cat, but carries a pocket dimension where she stores her eggs and a terrifying tentacled maw for defense purposes.As much as I hope that makes it into the movie, there’s reason to think it may not. Photos from a Captain Marvel event taken in August indicate that the cat’s name has been changed to Goose. Because Carol likes Top Gun, I guess. No judgment here, it’s a good movie. Fun day @Marvel Can we talk about how excited I am for CAPTAIN MARVEL??? Can March be here already??? #captainmarvel pic.twitter.com/2B3j5jezyY— Ashley Eckstein (@HerUniverse) August 8, 2018Still, it makes you wonder if they changed anything besides the cat’s name. We’re all hoping for an alien surprise, but it’s possible that for Captain Marvel’s introductory movie, they’ll want to keep things simple and have her cat remain a cat. An ordinary space-faring cat.We’ll see for sure when Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, 2019.Tom Hiddleston as Loki in Thor: Ragnarok. (Photo via Marvel Studios)Want more Tom Hiddleston in your life? Of course you do. You’re about to get a whole lot more Loki, thanks to Disney’s upcoming streaming service. In addition to all the Disney movies that are never available for streaming when you want to watch them, Disney’s in-development service will also be home to some original MCU content. While the Netflix shows appear to be staying where they are, Disney is preparing limited series featuring some of the supporting cast of the MCU, Variety reports. What really makes this news exciting is that the studio plans to get the actors from the movies to reprise their roles. Two of these stars are reportedly Tom Hiddleston and Elizabeth Olsen, who will star in Loki and Scarlet Witch series respectively. This dark, dystopian future where we have to subscribe to every studio’s proprietary service has some perks.Variety also posted a poll asking readers which other characters they’d like to see, and the result should make the editor of this website very happy.last_img
