The title says it all. This featurette really does set the stage for Captain Marvel. It felt like that opening scene for Romeo & Juliet, "In fair Verona where we lay our scene..." Anyone who just don't know what to expect at all, can pretty much get the whole of it right here. So if you're only into these Marvel movies, & don't really know anything else about comics, this featurette is for you.
This was one of the most insane featurettes I've seen Marvel do so far. Mainly because you get a glimpse of the 9+ month workout regimen it took to become Captain Marvel . We tend to forget what these actors/actresses have to go through to become our super heroes. Even this small look made me tired just watching. Like most of these featurettes, you also get a synopsis of the character, along with some behind the scenes with the actors & directors, & a couple quick shots that weren't in the trailers. Some of the quick scenes definitely should've hit the trailer. If that special look earlier didn't have me on board, this definitely did. I've already got my tickets for opening day. Had a little trouble too. If you're in a big area like I am, theaters are filling up fast. Major respect to those involved after seeing this though. Especially Larson, it sounds like she went through a lot for this one. Thoughts? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Who Is The Wasp? is the newest featurette for Marvel's upcoming sequel, Ant-Man & the Wasp. most of it just deals with reintroducing everyone to Hope, her mother Janet, & the Wasp mantle they'll share. However, I took two major reveals out of this video. One was Scott saying he saw Janet while in the Quantum Realm. We had been hearing he gets a signal from her, but not this. He actually sees a trapped in the Quantum Realm Janet, & she looks pretty mobile still on top of that. The other thing was Feige's mention of how important these characters will be to Avengers 4 . Which let's me know there will be a lot riding on this films end credits. Personally, I'm convinced we haven't seen the end of characters turning to dust. Giving Scott some extra stakes as we round the corner to settle the effects of Avengers: Infinity War . Anyway, those are the biggest things I got out of this featurette. Those, & the reminder that with Wasp's addition, we now have all the original Avengers on screen. Friggin awesome. What do y'all think of these couple of revelations though? Pumped for Ant-Man & the Wasp? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Marvel just released this video taking us all the way back to the beginning, & it's really got me thinking. Through the next couple of Avengers films, we're really looking at something monumental. Can you think of anything that's ever come close to what the Marvel Cinematic Universe has done I the world of film? Star Wars or Star Trek would be the only immediate examples that come to mind, & they only have half the entries of the MCU. To put out this much content is amazing, but for even the bad entries to still be really good films is an amazing feat. I'm hoping for 10 more years plus of this, infinity & beyond for that matter. This just made me stop & think that's all. A huge amount of recognition should go out for the achievement made here, & I don't think people talk about that part enough. You're looking at an actual piece of history now when it comes to these films. This may never be duplicated. You see many are trying. Awesome time to be alive in the world of cinema, & the MCU is the driving reason for that. Keep en comin' Marvel Studios! What are y'alls thoughts on this awesome achievement in history, as well as this somewhat nostalgic trip through the past 10 years? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Every time Marvel releases one of these behind-the-scenes featurettes I can't help but see how much fun it looks like everyone involved is having. This new one for Avengers: Infinity War is no exception. How much these people enjoy making these films, & the immediate chemistry displayed between each & every cast member shows why these films have only gotten better for 10 years now. Not only that, but I'm beginning to suspect that Chris Hemsworth is never, not Thor. I'm really starting to think that's just him all the time. These are always fun to watch though, love seeing how much passion Robert Downey Jr. has for this franchise. Enjoy this as much as I did, let me know what you think.

Marvel released this featurette last night giving a little background on Black Panther. Not so much the character himself, but more of a little history on his creation by Lee & Kirby. You can tell Stan is pretty excited about this one when he talks about it. They're really staying vague on any real details, leaving me to believe we're going to get an awesome origin story out of this one. This also came with me hearing from Collided that Kendrick Lamar will be working with Anthony Tiffith in producing Black Panther: The Album, Marvel's first all original album. Not sure what to think there. Sounds like they're going to go for a current soundtrack, which in all honesty could be a little jarring for the film in my opinion. Current music, a lot of the times, can be distracting, it has worked before though. What do y'all think? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Did anyone else miss this featurette? It's not much new in the way of previews, but it gives some time with each of the actors. We couldn't be any closer to Marvel's The Defenders, with all episodes to drop on Netflix August 18, 2017, & Charlie Cox (Daredevil), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones), Mike Colter (Luke Cage), & Finn Jones (Iron Fist) sit down in this featurette & shed some light as to where each of their characters stand coming into them. Murdock is no longer Daredevil after his second season. He becomes Jessica Jones lawyer; she's done some bad things if you don't recall. Luke Cage is getting out of prison from finishing his sentence. Which leaves Danny Rand who is just doing his Danny Rand thing whatever it may be. It actually looks like him & Cage bump into each other by coincidence. Anyway, we'll know for sure soon. The all wind up hunting what is most likely the Hand's cover-up, Midland Circle. This is where not only Sigourney Weaver, but the newly resurrected Elektra comes in. These series so far have almost done the villains better than the heroes. They have not only gave us the best incantation of the anti-hero Punisher, they've made Purple Man, Cottonmouth, & the now iconic Kingpin some of the most interesting villains in the whole Marvel Universe. I only say this because I'm curious as to where Sigourney Weaver will land in the mix. She is such an iconic actress, I don't think I've ever really seen her do something that looks this cold. Check this featurette out though for a nice setup. Let us know what you think in the comments, like, & share.
