Rumor: Big Spoilers for Marvel's CIVIL WAR & INFINITY WAR, and Spider-Man Deal is Done
Thanks to our friends at Latino Review, we have some potentially mind-blowing details for what we will see happen in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and more. The details also include the inclusion of Spider-Man. The deal between Marvel and Sony has reportedly gone through.
I will tell you right off the bat that there are some major SPOILERS ahead. Latino Review is always pretty spot on with the intel they get, but until there's confirmation, we will still treat it as a rumor.
Before we begin, though, they make it very clear that Andrew Garfield will not be a part of any future Spider-Man deal. (There have been some rumors that Garfield would appear in a movie with Tobey Maguire also reprising his role as the web-slinger, but those seemingly aren't true.)
Now on to the meat of the article...SPOILERS ahead for what might happen at the end of two of the Phase 3 movies. Seriously if you read ahead don't get mad at me, you've been warned.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will introduce a new group of Avengers that will be lead by Captain America, and there's still speculation that Hulk is going to be shot out into space. (Even though Marvel has denied it, I really do hope we get to see Planet Hulk on the big screen eventually.)
We will learn in Captain America: Civil War that Bucky Barnes, a.k.a. The Winter Soldier, killed Howard Stark, which will lead to a major fight between Iron Man and Captain America. Crossbones will be back for Civil War, and at the end of the film he kills Steve Rogers, and apparently it's going to leave the audience with a big cliffhanger because the Iron Man and Captain America we've all grown to love will not be around as much moving forward. They do say that they're "pretty sure" Iron Man "can’t be flitting in and out of other Phase 3 movies without reducing the impact of his future return, let’s just say he’ll also be in space."
When it comes to Doctor Strange, they speculate that the character will led the new Avengers team in Captain America's absence.
The report goes on to say that Thor: Ragnarok will kill a lot of Asgardians, which we already heard. Of course, some of them will be resurrected, and at the end of the movie Thor will end up in some sort of “galactic prison.”
When the Black Panther film rolls around, we are going to find out a lot more about The Winter Soldier’s "dirty laundry." They speculate that there could be more Avengers involved with the Black Panther movie than the title suggests.
"The mystic nature of the Black Panther also allows Strange to pop up here if they want. But a New Avengers is being formed (not THE New Avengers from the comics, just SOME New Avengers)."
By the time Avengers: Infinity Wars Part 1 comes around, Steve Rogers is dead, Thor is in prison and will not be in the movie, but Spider-Man will be in the movie because they say the deal with Sony Picture has gone through! How freakin' cool is that!
"I’m told we’ll see an MCU Spider-Man in Infinity Wars Part 1, as that was the next logical place to insert him after they missed the window to logically include him in Civil War."
The Avengers line-up for Infinity War Part 1 is still in the discussion phase, but it will be the first film to feature a whole new set of Avengers. Some of the potential team members include Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Vision, Black Panther, Dr. Strange, Ant-Man, Wasp, Captain Marvel, Luke Cage, Daredevil, Iron Fist, Jewel/Power Woman, and "ANY of the New Inhumans, ANY of the classic Inhumans, a of the Guardians of the Galaxy and ANY Cosmic Marvel characters Guardians chooses to send to Earth...oh, and Spider-Man."
In Infinity War Part 2, all of the Avengers are said to return - including Steve Rogers, who is freakin' dead! Not sure how that will work, but that's what they say!
Good grief, Marvel has a lot going on and a long road ahead of them. There's so much cool stuff here to speculate about, and I can't wait to see how the story will all play out on the big screen! It's insanely exciting!
