He’s a lot younger,” Gregg said. “It’s the earliest we will have seen him, so when he says, ‘Mr. Stark, this isn’t my first rodeo,’ in Iron Man, this is maybe the rodeo he’s talking about.” Now that’s an interesting thought. What was Phil Coulson’s first rodeo? Well, it apparently involved the Skrulls, that’s about all we know about Captain Marvel at this point. With his easygoing confidence in Phase 1 MCU movies and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it’ll be interesting to see a less sure Coulson. What does that guy look like on his first day? It’s a shame we won’t get to see any of the other agents, particularly Ming-Na Wen’s Agent May. It’d make sense if she were starting out at the same time as Coulson, and it’d be cool to see her character existing somewhere in the movies. But the movies and TV shows can’t really touch each other anymore. It’s too bad, but what can you do?Finally, we have a new TV spot for Ant-Man and the Wasp that proves this movie is coming out at the perfect time. The more footage we see of this movie, the more it looks like the perfect pick-me-up after Avengers: Infinity War. That ending destroyed us all, and we need something lighthearted and comic to keep us going until Captain Marvel and Avengers 4. It’s looking like Ant-Man and the Wasp will fill that role nicely.They’re really having a lot of fun with the size-changing stuff in this one. I can’t tell what I like more, that awesome car flip or the giant Hello Kitty PEZ dispenser. Also, Ghost looks like a fantastic villain, and Evangeline Lilly is pure action hero in this trailer. The stakes aren’t as high as in Avengers: Infinity War, and we don’t need them to be. The first Ant-Man was a perfect foil to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it’s looking like this will fill the same role. And I’m glad they’re addressing the whole Captain America: Civil War thing. It is just a little messed up that Scott didn’t even think of asking Hope along. Now I just hope it gives us a good explanation for where Ant-Man was during Infinity War.We’ll find out soon enough. Ant-Man and the Wasp comes out in theaters July 6. Stay on target It’s still weird to think about there being movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers 4. With what little we know about it, plus the events of Avengers: Infinity War, there’s really no way to know what they’ll look like. The only sure thing is they’ll still be superhero films. At this point, the only Phase 4 movies we know for sure are coming are sequels. So at least we can be relatively certain they’ll resemble their predecessors. The sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming (which I really hope is called Spider-Man: Prom) will be another lightly comic superhero high school melodrama. Only with a new villain this time. And now we know who that villain is.Jake Gyllenhaal is in talks to play Mysterio in the next movie, according to Variety. That’s pretty perfect casting, actually. After seeing how dark the actor can go in Nightcrawler, he can certainly bring a ton of terror to a comic book villain like Mysterio. I’m just glad the villain is finally getting his big screen debut. He was always my favorite of Spider-Man’s rogues. I loved his theatricality, his ability to surprise Spider-Man, and his cool magic tricks. Also, he has that fish bowl head. I can’t tell you why young me liked that look, I can only tell you that I did. Gyllenhaal can certainly play up the theatrics and give us a great magic show, so I can’t wait to see what they do with him.Once again, the movie will be a joint production between Marvel Studios and Sony. Pretty much everyone’s returning for the sequel, too. Aside from the obvious returns like Tom Holland, Marissa Tomei and Zendaya, director Jon Watts is back and Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are writing the script again. The movie will also see the return of The Vulture. Yes, Michael Keaton has signed on for the sequel, so Tom Holland’s Spider-Man hasn’t seen the last of his original nemesis. There’s no word on the plot of the movie, but I have a theory.AdChoices广告This is pure speculation, but based on what the comics usually do with Mysterio, this is what I think is likely. The comics (and animated series, and video game) love to have Mysterio make fake Spideys. The movie could be about The Vulture meeting Mysterio and teaming up with him to get revenge on Spider-Man, ruin his good name, and thereby get back into his family’s good graces. Mysterio could make a fake Spider-Man commit high-profile crimes, forcing Peter to navigate a New York that doesn’t like him. Probably without much assistance from any Avenger this time. It would also give the movie a good reason to introduce The Daily Bugle. And if it does, please recast J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson. There’s really no one else who can do it.Clark Gregg (via Marvel)Before we get there though, we still have a few movies to go before Marvel closes out Phase 3. The most exciting of which is Captain Marvel. The movie comes out next February, and will take place more than 10 years before any other Marvel movie. That means we’re going to be learning a lot about some MCU mainstays. Particularly Nick Fury and Agent Coulson. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Clark Gregg said he was thrilled that Captain Marvel would be bringing Coulson back to the big screen. He also revealed that we’re going to see some of the character’s earliest days in S.H.I.E.L.D. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img
