10 minutes ago SPOILER WARNING: Marvel and Disney are all in on spoilers now, but I'd rather play it safe than sorry. Big spoilers for Avengers: Endgame to follow! Avengers: Endgame was indeed the finale that we were all promised. The film closes the door on some pillars of the MCU, including Thanos, who's been the big bad of this whole franchise. With the Mad Titan seemingly gone for good, who else could possibly terrorize the Avengers for the foreseeable future? Well, I don't know about the final boss, but as far as Phase 4 is concerned, Endgame may have paved the road for a classic Avengers bad guy in the form of Kang the Conqueror. As the millions of people worldwide who have seen Avengers: Endgame know, the entire second act of the film is devoted to time travel. In order to undo the Snap and bring back everyone who was lost, the Avengers take a trip through their history to find the Infinity Stones, bring them to the future and not completely break the laws of time and … [Read more...] about The Villain Avengers: Endgame Might Have Set Up For Phase 4
The Living Tribunal Speaking of elaborate sci-fi that's hard to digest, how about the Living Tribunal? The Living Tribunal is a being that represents and judges the entire multiverse. It's basically the Supreme Court of cosmic beings and only involves itself in matters when things get real. It often takes the form of a great golden being with three cloaked faces. Like Eternity, the Living Tribunal is not a villain per say, but if it decides to destroy the Earth for the greater good, it will do so without hesitation. Maybe Thanos' actions throw the cosmic balance out of whack, and the Living Tribunal arrives to wipe the slate clean, destroying everything in the process? However, the Living Tribunal might be too powerful a foe to defeat believably. … [Read more...] about 6 Marvel Villains Avengers 4 Could Use
6 minutes ago Marvel is always pretty guarded when it comes to movie secrets. With millions of fans already invested in the MCU and a good track record of critical reviews, the studio often gives away less to try and build intrigue and good word of mouth. That was especially true leading up to Avengers: Infinity War, and it has kicked into overdrive for Avengers 4, which is why fans are obsessing over the writing on a Marvel toy box. The toy in question features Thor and Rocket Raccoon in pretty snazzy white suits. You can check out the picture here, but what has some fans even more excited is the exact language the box uses to describe what's going on. I'll throw it in a blockquote here below... Alright, so, obviously we have two quick questions here. Let's break them down one at a time. Number one: who are these new foes? I guess in the back of my head, I knew Avengers 4 wouldn't just feature Thanos. The crew defeated most of his henchmen during the last movie, and it seems … [Read more...] about Wait, Could Avengers 4 Have A More Dangerous Villain Than Thanos?
x Though we all loved Josh Brolin’s run as the Mad Titan in Marvel’s cinematic universe, it seems original character creator Jim Starlin never envisioned the one-time Jonah Hex actor in the role. For Starlin, Arnold Schwarzenegger, or even Idris Elba, were the top choices for his beloved villain. While speaking to Chuck Load of Comics during the recent ACE Comic Con in Chicago this weekend, the nearly 70-year-old revealed that Brolin wasn’t even on his mind in the earliest days. Though it wasn’t necessarily due to quality perceptions, but more so because of technological concerns at the time. Here’s what he had to say: “Because I always thought it was going to be just a voice over job, you know, [an] animated character. That’s how they were doing it at that point, and the new technology was only being introduced that they first introduced him in The Avengers.” “I was thinking somebody like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Idris Elba, … [Read more...] about Thanos Creator Thought Arnold Schwarzenegger Should Play The Role In Avengers: Infinity War
x We don’t know much that’s concrete about Avengers 4 at present, but we can hazard a guess at a few things that will surely have to happen. For one, Thanos must be defeated following his terrible actions in Infinity War. They might’ve currently hit a hiccup, but beating the bad guy is kind of what our heroes do. The big question, though, is who’ll be the one to stop the threat of the Mad Titan once and for all? A common suggestion by fans is that it’ll be Nebula. After all, following Gamora’s demise, she’s the only family Thanos has left. Tortured, mutilated and turned into a cyborg by her adoptive father, Nebula’s made it her mission since the first Guardians of the Galaxy to kill Thanos, so it’d be fitting if she achieved that goal in Avengers 4. Interestingly enough, actress Karen Gillan has now revealed how she’d like Nebula to kill the villain if she ever got the chance. Prefacing it with … [Read more...] about Karen Gillan Reveals How Nebula Could Kill Thanos In Avengers 4
